    GOP lawmaker cuts off NAACP president's testimony, sparking a tense 'NAACP Day' at Capitol

    ... Angered by a GOP committee chairman who shut off the microphone of state NAACP President Nimrod Chapel during Chapel’s testimony Monday night, Democratic lawmakers and advocates unleashed condemnations of the Republican committee chairman, Bill Lant of Pineville, with at least one comparing his actions to those in the Jim Crow South.

    The fracas prompted the House speaker to apologize — although Lant himself said he has “nothing to apologize for” ...

    Capitol Hill Buzz: Democrat eyes law on removing presidents

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Perhaps in a bit of wishful thinking, a House Democrat says he plans to form a working group to "clarify and strengthen" the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which lays out presidential succession and the steps the executive branch can take to remove a president from office.

    Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon says he's initiating this effort in response to Republican Donald Trump's presidency, even though there have been no signs of an effort to remove him ...

    When you look at the people who are actually representing us in the government, there isn't enough diversity. Especially in the Senate. If there was a more diverse presence, them maybe the needs of someone other than white males could come to fruition
