Trump to Congress: Stop Probing Me or I'm Done Talking With Democrats
Leah Millis/ReutersPresident Donald Trump hijacked his own White House "Infrastructure Week" Wednesday to inveigh before the cameras about the Russia investigations, Democratic lawmakers accusing him of corruption and perpetrating a "cover-up," and liberals throwing around the "I-word."

Democratic Rep. Tells Acting DHS Chief: Migrant Kid Deaths Under Your Watch Are ‘Intentional'
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/CSPANThe acting head of the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday was accused of overseeing the "intentional" deaths of five migrant children, in an aggressive line of questioning by a Democratic member of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

Rep. Lauren Underwood, an Illinois Democrat serving her first term, called the deaths the logical result of "a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration," an assertion that Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan disputed as "an appalling accusation."

McAleenan, who was first tapped to replace outgoing secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in April, previously served as commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, where he was an architect of the administration's policy of separating migrant children from their families. That policy, Underwood said, as well as a spate of recent deaths of children in DHS custody, amounts to more than simple administrative negligence.

Know-Nothing Ben Carson Is a Threat to Our Democracy
Andrew Harnik/AP/REX/ShutterstockDuring a grilling by the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson faced an actual expert on housing: Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA).

Porter, a former law professor who wrote the textbook on consumer law, asked Carson about REOs, a term related to foreclosures. He mistakenly thought she was asking about Oreos—as in the cookie—and Twitter lost its mind. At one point, the band REO Speedwagon was trending.
