Shut the horsefeathering agency down and cut off their funding. Why aren't Democrats going on offense here over all their egregious violations and misconduct? Seriously, ICE is maybe the worst horsefeathering agency in the entire Federal government and I only say maybe because I don't know all the small feckless regulatory agencies in the Federal government.

Of course this is all symptomatic of the fact Trump World doesn't view these positions as integral to the decision-making process in any event.

It might be just that be keeping people in the "acting" stage, they don't have to get them confirmed by Congress and can put whatever low life yes men they want in those positions.

So as Trump does or says another impeachable thing, and as Pence tours a concentration camp and blames Democrats for it becoming a concentration camp, we get this out of the House leadership for reasons. *facepalm*

I've been wondering the past few months whether Amash is the only principled elected conservative. It sure has played out that way.

I agree with the general point, Re: continual Dem acquiescence to GOP demands, yet also think AOC's CoS should STFU, and the elected officials need to talk behind closed doors and hash things out. These media squabbles are not helpful.

Thank you. Yes. There’s absolutely nothing gained by polarizing factions of the party.

I anticipate "the Squad" showing inexperience and making these mistakes, but Pelosi feeling the need to get her burns in to Maureen Dowd, among other statements, was especially disappointing. She's supposed to be the steady hand and adult in the room. AOC, et al, need to stop it, of course, but Pelosi adding fuel to the fire was utterly pointless.
