9/17 Mike Luckovich: Sitting Duck


Gloves Off: Mitt Slams RonJohn Ukraine Probe Comments As Illegitimate 'Political Exercise'


Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) slammed a Senate GOP probe into Joe Biden as a waste of taxpayer resources and a “political exercise” unfit for Congress on Wednesday.

Romney’s comment’s came one day after Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee chair Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told a Wisconsin radio station that “what our investigations are uncovering, I think, will reveal this is not somebody we should be electing president of the United States.”

Romney derided Johnson’s Ukraine investigation as having, “from the outset, had the earmarks of a political exercise, and I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”

“It’s the province of campaigns and political parties, opposition research, the media, to carry out political endeavors to learn about or dust up one’s opponent,” Romney added, in comments made directly to Johnson. “But it’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used as an effort to damage political opponents.”

@joebiden: Donald Trump not only suggested we sell or trade Puerto Rico — but he also left our fellow Americans without the resources they desperately needed after Hurricane Maria. It's unacceptable. As president, I'll support the island's full recovery and invest in its people and future.

@joebiden: I believe that every American deserves a fair shot to get ahead and a government that treats them equally. But that hasn't been the case for the people of Puerto Rico. Today, I'm releasing my new plan to change that:

@joebiden: For months, President Trump has failed to provide desperately needed fiscal relief to our state and local governments — and we’re seeing the consequences every day. Our students and educators deserve better. As president, I’ll make sure they always have the resources they need.

09/14 Daily Dose of Joe

Friends -- see below for today's Dose of Joe.

• Today, Joe Biden will deliver remarks in Wilmington, Delaware on the ongoing wildfires in the west. Vice President Biden will discuss the threat that extreme weather events pose to Americans everywhere, how they are both caused by and underscore the urgent need to tackle the climate crisis, and why we need to create good-paying, union jobs to build more resilient infrastructure. You can watch HERE.

• Today, Jill Biden will join National Nurses United President Deborah Burger, RN and NNU members for a roundtable discussion on COVID-19’s impact on safe working conditions and patient safety.

• Yesterday, on the anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the bans on Assault Weapons and High-Capacity Magazines, Joe released a statement vowing that as President, he will immediately push for Congress to pass the VAWA reauthorization legislation and send it to his desk so that “we can fulfill our obligations to those women who are suffering and feel abandoned.”

• Jill and Joe Biden released a statement on supporting police officers in the line of duty after the cold-blooded shooting of two Los Angeles County deputies, as well as the horrific death of Deputy Ryan Hendrix, a Marine veteran and police officer killed in the line of duty in Henderson County, North Carolina.

• In a new Morning Consult Poll, Biden leads Trump 50%-43% in Wisconsin. And in two new YouGov Polls, Biden leads Trump in Minnesota 50%-41% and leads Trump in Arizona 47%-44%.



• @joebiden: 26 years ago today, the Violence Against Women Act became law. In the years since, it has saved countless lives and helped change the culture around sexual assault and domestic violence. Writing and championing the law remains one of my proudest accomplishments.

• @joebiden: With each reauthorization, VAWA has become stronger. The latest bill—passed by the House last year—would close loopholes allowing abusers to obtain guns and extend protections for Native women. But Mitch McConnell refuses to bring it to the floor for a vote. It’s despicable.
