There are no laws - exempting people from lying to Congress under oath - they are rarely enforced but they still exist - that was my point.......................................

   As much as the GOP attempt to demean Dems, there is one thing that Dems are much better at than GOP and that is sarcasm.    One person went to WIKI and edited the page on Invertebrates.   The edit was an addition:  Paul Ryan.

 

   Many of the GOP may not get the joke, due to their inherent hatred of science which makes it even more hilarious.

 

   Yes, the page has been edited since - but the page was saved for everyone to enjoy.   https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Invertebrate&oldid=762135165

Senate Democrats Finally Grow a Pear

Apparently even Politicians have a Border they won't cross when it comes to Alternative Facts

 

WASHINGTON ― Senate Democrats deployed a dramatic eleventh-hour maneuver to deny committee votes to two of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks Tuesday, arguing that those nominees had lied to them.

 

Lawmakers felt the two nominees had misled them at various points in the confirmation process and were looking for a leverage point to get additional explanations. On Tuesday morning, the aides said, committee Democrats met in Wyden’s office and agreed to go forward with the plan shortly before the hearing was set to begin. 

 

When Price was questioned about his purchase of discounted stock in an Australian biotechnology firm in the Senate Finance Committee, he said the offer to purchase discounted shares was “available to every single individual that was an investor at the time.” Company documents and a report by The Wall Street Journal showed that, contrary to Price’s statement, only a limited number of U.S. investors in the company were invited to buy the stock at the lowered price.

 

Democrats have asked the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate whether Price violated insider trading laws and ethics rules.

 

“I asked Congressman Price directly if he got an exclusive discount on stock in an Australian biomedical firm, and he said no,” Wyden said Tuesday. “From the committee’s investigation to company documents to the company officials’ own words, the evidence tells a different story. It looks more and more like Congressman Price got special access to a special deal.”

 

And The Columbus Dispatch reported recently that Mnuchin, who was previously the chief executive of OneWest Bank, “flatly denied in testimony before the Senate Finance Committee that OneWest used ‘robo-signing’ on mortgage documents. But records show the bank utilized the questionable practice in Ohio.”
