Join a Letter to the AG Sessions on the Appointment of Special Prosecutors

Please join me in signing a letter to appoint a special prosecutor to resolve the matters pertaining to the illegal monitoring and unmasking of American citizens who worked for President Trump’s campaign or the President’s Transition Team; the IRS Targeting
Scandal in which the IRS was used to harm conservative activists and their organizations; and the ATF-DEA operations known as “Wide Receiver” and “Fast and Furious” where the federal government provided weapons to criminals.  The common theme of all three
is that the federal government, its resources, its power, its money and its personnel, have been used to influence political outcomes and unlike the investigation into Russian interference in our election, there is substantial evidence the Obama Administration
actively engaged in these actions.  It’s time to get answers.
The text of the letter is below. Please contact Joshua Ronk at Joshua.Ronk@mail.house.gov with any questions you have or if you’d like to sign on.

Close 90/10 Loophole & Co-Sponsor Ensuring Quality Education for Veterans Act (Deadline: May 24)

I urge you to join me protecting our service members and their spouses from predatory for-profit colleges by co-sponsoring the Ensuring Quality Education for Veterans Act which treats Department of Defense (DOD) tuition assistance and spousal benefits as
federal funds. Our men and women in uniform receive tuition assistance from the DOD when they enroll in higher education. But their hard-earned benefits are often a target of for-profit colleges, who will aggressively enroll service members by misrepresenting
their job prospects upon graduation and the quality of the education they can expect to receive.

TODAY: Middle Neighborhoods Briefing

Join
Congressman Dwight Evans, Congressman Elijah Cummings, and Congressman Dan Kildee for a conversation about “Middle Neighborhoods” on
Thursday, May 18th from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM in
2360 Rayburn HOB.  Middle neighborhoods are community areas on the edge between growth and decline. 
These are neighborhoods where housing is typically affordable and where quality of life—measured by employment rates, crime rates, and school performance—is sufficiently good so that new home buyers are willing to play the odds and choose these neighborhoods
over others in hopes they will improve rather than decline.
