Inspector General Horowitz testified on Tuesday before the House oversight committee, it appears President Trump was referencing this exchange between Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Inspector General Horowitz CSPAN

According to CSPAN’s transcription of the exchange Gowdy says, “I can’t think of anything more outcome determinative than my bias against this person I’m investigating.”

The two were speaking about the texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

President Trump offered no sources to back his pronouncement that German officials aren’t reporting crimes.

Over the last few days President Trump and the Republicans have faced backlash over their newly established “Zero Tolerance,” policy which since implementation in April, has resulted in an estimated 2000 kids being separated from their parents at the border.

Twitter has zoned in on the word “Infested.”

The Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen held a press conference on Monday, during which she stated

“So I want to be clear on a couple of other things. The vast majority, vast, vast majority of children who are in the care of H.H.S. right now — 10,000 of the 12,000 — were sent here alone by their parents. That is when they were separated. So somehow we’ve conflated everything. But there is two separate issues. 10,000 of those currently in custody were sent by their parents with strangers to undertake a completely dangerous and deadly travel alone. We now care for them. We have high standards. We give them meals, we give them education, we give them medical care. There is videos, there is TVs, I visited the detention centers myself — that would be my answer to that question.”

*I found no report at DHS’s website to confirm her numbers.*

Members of the House are set to vote on two immigration bills, one introduced by Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and the other more moderate bill, via Politico, that was released in draft form on Thursday.

Senators Feinstein (D-CA) and Cruz (R-TX) have both introduced separate bills that would halt family separations at the border

*the links above are the drafted bills.

This would be President Trump’s 15 rally since becoming President of the United States.
