Rep. Jasmine Crockett Trademarks Her Viral Clapback to MTG​

Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) isn’t just doubling-down on her viral slam against Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene—she’s cashing in.

On Sunday, Rep. Crockett reportedly filed for a trademark on the phrase “bleach blonde bad-built butch body,” a devastating line she riffed in response to a similarly derisive comment about her appearance from Greene during a chaotic House Oversight Committee last week.

House Republicans vote to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress​

WASHINGTON – House Republicans voted on Wednesday to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress in a dramatic escalation of the GOP’s broader war against the Biden administration's Department of Justice.

The lower chamber voted along party lines 216-207 to hold Garland in contempt as retaliation against the DOJ for withholding the audio recording of President Joe Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur over his mishandling of classified documents.

Republicans will again try to slash defense secretary's salary to $1​


House Republicans will again try to slash Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's annual salary from $221,000 to just $1 in retaliation for a host of conservative complaints against current military policies.

An amendment to the chamber's annual defense appropriations bill offered by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., over the weekend would mandate the salary change. It's the second consecutive year she has offered the idea, which was adopted by House Republicans last fall but ultimately stripped out of the final legislation in negotiations with the Senate.

The pay reduction for the secretary of defense will be considered by the House Rules Committee on Tuesday and, if ruled in order, voted on by the full chamber later this week. It is one of more than 400 amendments to the $833.1 billion spending measure, many dealing with partisan fights and priorities.
