Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton: Congress 'AWOL' on ‘All Significant Investigations of Misconduct by Federal Gov’t.’

Congress has been “AWOL [absent without leave] on almost all significant investigations of misconduct by the federal government,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told CNSNews.com on Thursday.

Fitton made the comments after the conservative watchdog group made public296 pages of previously unreleased State Department records, including 44 emailsthat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to turn over last year despite her sworn declaration that she had done so.

The emails “show [that] the Clinton Foundation, Clinton donors, and operatives worked with Hillary Clinton in potential violation of the law,” according to the conservative watchdog group, which currently has 18 active Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits.

Over the past four years, Judicial Watch has uncovered troves of new information dating back to 2009 on Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business and the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya while she was secretary of state that has apparently eluded seven congressional committees.

CNSNews.com asked Fitton if any members of Congress have been in contact with his group regarding these latest revelations.

We have not had any interest from members of Congress in our work,” Fitton replied.

Asked if he was surprised by that, Fitton answered: “No. Congress as an institution is AWOL on almost all significant investigations of misconduct by the federal government,” he said.

Not only are they totally corrupt to the core....they're also completely useless.

Clean house time in the US congress.

These assholes don't read the Constitution! and or ignore it! Nether does that POS in the W.H.!!!

I and 99.9% of Americans agree that Congress is AWOL, that's why Obama is running wild while they are gone on a long vacation,but if they were threatened with being voted out of the cushy jobs they have they would understand that they need to  be on the job like all Americans who have to work to pay bills and feed their families,Congress doesn't deserve the time off they are taking,if they did a great job while in session it would be ok to take a couple of weeks, but not all Summer.and we'll hear that they are out visiting every one in their districts but they need to prove it. 

Don't pay them. They have not earned their salary.

That is easy enough to say but, unfortunately, there is no way for us to do it.

They are bought and paid for now, it is time to replace them all with real Americans instead of these imposters...!!!

the obvious problem is we can write, speak ,protest and we know "nothing" will get done.  We have a deference in acquiescence that which is deplorable in this country.  So, how do we educate the uneducated? To really bring about change?

Worthless congress.  I have one congressman in our district that keeps reaching out to everyone over and over wanting to hear what we have to say.  He voted for amnesty, so I'm not voting for him again.

We need to vote every incumbent out and some how get rid of the democrats. Without life time pay. Let them be like REAL CITIZENS!

Bill & Hillary Clinton should have been looked up in Fort Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary 20 years ago!  They and their minions and the Democratic Party are guilty of dozens of felony crimes!  Most of Congress (both parties) have been asleep at the switch for decades!  Even if Donald Trump is elected and both houses of Congress remain with a majority of Conservatives, it will take many  leaders, that are strong, honest, Constitutional conservatives to turn the utter disaster in Washington DC, back to what the founding fathers had envisioned!  

Remind me what party is in control of Congress. It couldn't be Republicans because they represent conservatives and conservatives don't want what's being sold right now in our country. It has to be Republocrats , you know those two party people that are really one party.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
