Obama Talks Immigration and Healthcare in Berlin, the CHC Summons Alex Acosta, and Serena Williams Joins a Tech Board

Another day, another scandal -- er, scandals. We now know that top Russian officials discussed how to influence Trump aides last summer. Curious when you consider that it turns out AG Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings with Russian officials in 2016 when he applied for his security clearance. Ironic when you consider that his boss can’t seem to stop disclosing intel -- this time, sharing the location of two nuclear submarines with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte. Here in America, we have our own way of hurting substance users: denying them healthcare. Well, them and 23 million other Americans if the House GOP bill is enacted. The CBO issued its budgetary impact of the AHCA, and boy, is it a doozy. Not only will 23 million lose health insurance, but the savings will go to tax cuts for the wealthiest. Turns out millionaires will be the only ones tired of "so much winning." Here’s what else is happening in politics:

  • Barack Obama talks healthcare and immigration.
  • Black women tell Tom Pérez he better call Tyrone.
  • A senior staffer leaves the Department of Education.
  • The CHC summons Labor Secretary Alex Acosta.
  • Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) leads a millennial caucus.
  • Congressman Al Green (D-TX) is drawing up impeachment papers.
  • Survey Monkey just got some real Black Girl Magic on their board.
  • Latino Victory Project names a Political Director.
  • APALA names a new Executive Director.
  • Former Senate staffer launches congressional bid.
  • Join Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Congressman Tony Cárdenas (D-CA), andMarc Morial today on Capitol Hill.
