For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Ted Lieu Joins Dem Colleagues to Protect Mueller Findings

Ted Lieu Joins Dem Colleagues to Protect Mueller Findings

Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA)joined Congressmen Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), and David Cicilline (D-RI) to introduce the Special Counsel Transparency Act. The bill would preserve the work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in the event that Donald Trump fires him. Should Mueller be fired, this legislation would require the Special Counsel to provide a report to congressional leadership and the House and Senate Judiciary Committees detailing the status of the investigation and facts found as of the date of dismissal. Among other things, the bill would also prohibit the prosecution of the Special Counsel for any disclosures made to Congress pursuant to this bill and require the DOJ to provide a comparable report to Congress detailing the status of the investigation and facts found. “Firing Special Counsel Mueller would be an assault on our democracy. The American people have a right to know the findings of this investigation. If the President tries to obstruct justice by firing Mr. Mueller, we have a duty to preserve the integrity of the investigation. This bill does just that.  It ensures documents and relevant materials aren’t tampered with or destroyed, and as such allows the investigation to proceed.” More here.
