Ben Carson Slips Again, Ted Lieu Targets Saudi Deal, and Dick Parsons Out at CBS
GIVE US YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES? Thousands of Central Americans resumed their journey northward on Sunday despite a Mexican government order to submit to processing by the immigration authorities. BIG BRAIN ABOUT-FACEDonald Trump is now accusing the Saudi government of “deception” in its account of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death. The president previously said he found credible the kingdom’s explanation that the journalist was accidentally killed during a fight with Saudi operatives. WHAT TAX CUT? The president has promised a new middle-income tax cut plan that would land days before the midterm election -- a move aimed at boosting the Republican party’s chances of holding its Congressional majorities. But GOP tax policy-makers know nothing about it. LGB BUT NO T… The Trump administration is reportedly considering classifying gender as determined by genitalia at birth, part of a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition of transgender people. The new definition would essentially eradicate federal recognition of the estimated 1.4 million Americans who identify as a gender other than the one they were born into. NOT EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS... Donald Trump will rally for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) today in Houston at the Toyota Center. Despite promising a big crowd at “the biggest stadium in Texas” he could find, Trump booked a venue with a capacity of just 18,043. They said everything else was booked. Buuut … NRG Stadium has a capacity of 71,500 and is unbooked today. WHY GOD? A radio ad in Arkansas invoked lynchings to court Black voters claiming that “white Democrats will be lynching Black folk again.” Trevor Noah has a plan. STEALTH MODEThe Daily Show host offered a scheme to fight voter suppression by encouraging every Black person in America to register as a Republican. NOBODY WINS WHEN THE FAMILY FEUDS… Carolina Panthers’ Eric Reid and Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins almost came to blows before their game on Sunday over the NFL Players Coalition’s talks with the NFL to end the peaceful protests if the league donated $90 million to causes related to social inequality. After the game, Reid called Jenkins a “sellout” and a “neo-colonialist.” BALL TILL YOU BRAWL… Meanwhile, Lakers teammates Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo, and Chris Paul of the Rockets were suspended without pay on Sunday for an on-court fight at the Lakers’ home opener. Guys … if you read The Beat every morning, you’d save the beat downs for more worthy issues. It’s crazy out here. We’re kicking off the week with this…

Kamala Harris Aims to LIFT the Middle Class Out of Poverty
With the midterms just two weeks away, and as chatter around the possible 2020 presidential contenders grows louder, Democrats are announcing their support for proposals to replace the $1.5 trillion GOP tax plan with savings for the middle and lower class. The latest possible 2020 contender to embrace such a proposal is Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), who announced the LIFT (Livable Incomes for Families Today) the Middle Class Act last week -- a plan that she says would give working families back up to $6,000 and individuals back up to $3,000 each year. Families could opt to receive the money in a lump sum after filing their annual tax return or in monthly installments of $250 to $500, Harris said adding that this could help reduce reliance on payday lenders. The credit would be refundable, which means workers would receive the money even if they don’t owe any taxes. Households earning up to $100,000 would be eligible. “Americans are working harder than ever but stagnant wages mean they can’t keep up with cost of living increases,” said Harris. “We should put money back into the pockets of American families to address rising costs of childcare, housing, tuition, and other expenses. Our tax code should reflect our values and instead of more tax breaks for the top 1% and corporations, we should be lifting up millions of American families.” The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy estimates the LIFT Act would impact one in every two workers and two out of every three children in America.

Raúl Grijalva Pushes for Answers on Administration’s Weakening of Public Access to Endangered Species Records
The Trump administration is reportedly moving to restrict the release of information about its decisions on endangered species, according to a new guidance it has issued to employees. Congressman Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), the Ranking Member of the House Natural Resources Committee, worries that Interior’s withholding of important documents could increase, making it more difficult to challenge decisions that cause harm to imperiled species. The Congressman sent a letter on Friday to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke seeking information about the new guidance issued to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) employees which restricts information released through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests specifically related to the Endangered Species Act. In his letter, Grijalva raises concerns that an internal document recommended less transparency when responding to FOIA requests involving endangered species decisions. Specifically, the new guidance signaled “that records that could undermine positions taken by the FWS in court should be reviewed and possibly withheld.” Grijalva wrote that the “guidance undermines the implementation of the Endangered Species Act, and it significantly hinders the ability of the American people to hold their federal government accountable for its actions.” He expresses particular concern about the apparently intentional hiding of information on controversial projects like the Keystone XL pipeline -- which was met with great resistance from the Native American and environmental communities.

Ted Lieu Wants Oversight Over Arms Deal as Saudi Alliance Comes Under Scrutiny
The U.S. arms deal with Saudi Arabia has come under scrutiny since Riyadh stands accused of orchestrating the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Donald Trump has insisted that he would not scrap the mega arms and investment deal, worth $450 billion. Khashoggi’s murder caps years of growing dissatisfaction about the Saudi alliance, and Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) wants the House to have more oversight over arms deals. He and Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) introduced the Arms Sale Oversight Act. The measure would align House procedures for reviewing major arms sales with existing Senate procedures under the Arms Export Control Act. The bill makes it possible for any House member to force debate on the House floor in the event that the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) does not debate a contested arms sale. “The Arms Export Control Act is meant to guarantee Congress oversees U.S. arm sales but the current procedures often leave HFAC members in the dark,” Lieu said. “In a time where arms sales with countries like Saudi Arabia are worthy of intense Congressional scrutiny, House Members shouldn’t face roadblocks to doing our jobs. Like our Senate colleagues, we should have the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate and debate arms sales to make sure they’re in our nation’s best interest.” Trump has said he’ll be working on this with Congress but would prefer that “we don’t use as retribution canceling $110 billion worth of work, which means 600,000 jobs.” But here are the actual receipts: The president is incorrect to suggest that he has $110 billion in military orders from Saudi Arabia. A far smaller amount in sales has actually been signed -- $14 billion. And the president’s own State Department has estimated “potentially tens of thousands” of jobs. Not 600,000.

Did Trump Interfere with Moving FBI HQ? Elijah Cummings is on the Case.
Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD)
, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight, and four of his Democratic colleagues want to know if Donald Trump personally intervened on moving FBI HQ in order to prevent competition and help protect business for his hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in DC. They sent a letter to Emily Murphy, the Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA), to ask her for more information about Trump's role in the story. New documents obtained by lawmakers show that an expensive plan to keep the existing FBI property, demolish the existing building, and construct a new facility on the same site -- thus preventing commercial developers from competing with the Trump Hotel directly across the street -- was approved during a meeting with Trump at the Oval Office on January 24th, 2018. These new documents include emails that describe this decision as “direction from the White House,” “what POTUS directed everyone to do,” and “the project the president wants.”  The new documents also show that top GSA officials promised to “hold our ground” on this proposal “per the President’s instructions.” The administration claims the Dems are wrong about the issue. WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders claimed Trump “wanted to save the government money." However, a financial analysis conducted by the GSA's Inspector General said that constructing a new FBI building in downtown DC "would actually be more costly" than relocating the bureau. And the GSA argued that the emails Democrats cited were taken out of context. Cummings and his colleagues are demanding answers nonetheless. “As a direct result of President Trump’s clear conflict of interest on this matter, we are now requesting information and documents to determine whether the President is making decisions about the FBI headquarters building based on what is best for the country or what is best for his own financial bottom-line,” the Democratic members wrote in their letter.

Bobby Scott Wants to Know Why Betsy DeVos is Denying Nearly All Student Loan Forgiveness Applicants
A recent report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that more than 99% of applicants to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program have been denied. Congressman Bobby Scott (D-VA) and his colleagues want Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to explain why. The PSLF allows Direct Loan borrowers who make qualifying monthly payments under a repayment plan, while working full-time in qualifying jobs such as teaching, social work, first response, and other careers in public service, to have the remainder of their balance forgiven. Scott helped lead more than 150 Democratic colleagues in a letter calling on DeVos to turn over more information regarding what he calls the Department’s flawed handling of the PSLF program. The lawmakers are also demanding the office act quickly to address the issue. They call on DeVos to provide a timeline for implementing the recommended fixes the GAO recommended in their report, give Congress a copy of the Department’s corrective action plan, and detail the Department’s plan to reach out to all Direct Loan borrowers about PSLF and to fully digitize the employment certification and application process. “Consumer advocates, state regulators, Members of Congress, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and GAO have all repeatedly raised alarms about the Department’s handling of the PSLF program,” they wrote. “Not only has this Administration ignored the mounting warning signs about ... but it has actively reduced oversight of student loan servicers—thereby contributing to the current problems in student loan servicing. ... We are deeply troubled that millions of dedicated public servants may not obtain the loan forgiveness that they deserve if the Department does not act quickly to correct program implementation issues.” Co-leading the letter with Scott were Senators Patty Murray (D-WA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and Claire McCaskill (D-MO), as well as House colleagues Susan Davis (D-CA) and John Sarbanes (D-MD).

The Curious Case of Ben Carson’s Aide: Was She Going to Interior or Not?
News emerged last week that HUD Secretary Ben Carson announced that Suzanne Tufts, a HUD official and Republican operative with no ethics review experience, would be moving to the Department of the Interior to take over as Inspector General. The move would put Tufts in charge of ethics probes at Interior, including the ethics investigations into Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke over his and his wife’s travels, political activities, and relations with industry groups. However, Interior Department officials on Friday said that they had not approved the hiring of Tufts and called the announcement by Carson “100 percent false information” -- effectively placing the blame over the noise surrounding Tufts’ move on Carson. Interior did admit that the White House had referred Tufts to it as a potential candidate for a position in the IG’s office. But Democrats are not convinced the administration is giving all of the details, and they want more details and insight about what Carson and Zinke knew. “This administration can’t stop embarrassing itself or keep its story straight for five minutes,” said Congressman Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), the Ranking Member of the House Natural Resources Committee. “If the Interior Department’s explanation is that Secretary Carson doesn’t know what his own staff are doing, they should explain whether Ms. Tufts is needed at HUD or not. ... If they’re trying to shift blame for their latest scandal and backtrack while there’s still time, they should just say so. Either way, nobody is buying this explanation and we’re not going to stop pressing for answers.” More here.

Andrew Gillum Squares Off with GOP Opponent 
Florida gubernatorial candidate Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum squared off with his Republican opponent, Ron DeSantis, in a rapid-fire, one-hour debate. Gillum accused DeSantis of being a foot soldier for Donald Trump’s agenda, calling the former Congressman an “acolyte” to the president. “Donald Trump is weak and he performs as all weak people do,” Gillum said. “They become bullies.” DeSantis tried to cast himself as a law-and-order candidate, repeatedly raising his tenure in the Navy, his experience as a prosecutor, and his endorsements from sheriffs. Meanwhile, Gillum defended his record in Tallahassee City Hall, saying that the state capital’s overall crime rate was going down, and vowing to build cooperation between law enforcement and the communities they are sworn to protect. On immigration, DeSantis stressed the need to detain and deport undocumented immigrants that commit crimes in Florida. Gillum called for comprehensive immigration reform and hit Congress for failing to pass legislation to address the matter holistically. DeSantis, who has spoken at conferences affiliated with white supremacist and was an administrator of a Facebook page promoting racist memes, was forced to confront racist comments he made about Gillum when he went on Fox News and warned Floridians not to "monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda" by voting for Gillum, who stands to be the state's first African American Governor. Gillum managed to raise the issue of healthcare and highlighted that DeSantis has not released a healthcare policy plan during the campaign. The pair differed not only on their polar opposite policy positions, but also on matters of integrity and character. Most polls suggest the race is effectively tied, as is typical in the battleground state. Watch the full debate here.
Asian American Voters Could Be Deciding Factor in 27 Districts 
There are numerous competitive House races that are now considered toss-ups. What do all these districts have in common? A sizable Asian American population. AAPIData’s Sono Shah and Karthick Ramakrishnan reviewed the electoral map analyzing districts where AAPIs represent at least 5% of qualified voters. They found 27 congressional districts spanning 11 states, including in places where AAPIs are a fast-growing segment of the population. The sheer number of ‘toss-up’ seats with significant AAPI eligible voters this year is 11 -- meaning in these close races, this population of voters can make the deciding difference. In California, where the AAPI population is the largest in the country, there are nine races where AAPIs make up a significant portion of the voters. A total of five are rated as toss-up seats currently held by Republicans. Among Asian American voters, the Democratic Party holds a sizable advantage on most issues, with the greatest gaps found on the environment, racial discrimination, health care, and gun control, while the Republican Party fares stronger on issues like taxes, jobs, and the economy.

PACs Raise Millions to Motivate Black Voters
The Black Economic Alliance PAC and Black Economic Alliance Fund on Friday announced a $2.6 million campaign to mobilize Black voters in 15 key races ahead of next month’s midterm elections. Candidates they are supporting include Democratic gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum (FL) and Ben Jealous (MD); MS Democratic senatorial candidate Mike Espy; as well as Democratic congressional candidates Debbie Murcarsel-Powell (FL), Lauren Underwood (IL), Steven Horsford (NV), Antonio Delgado (NY), and Colin Allred (TX). The campaign will help engage and mobilize Black voters through a variety of tactics, including polling, radio, digital advertising, door-to-door canvassing, SMS texting, and direct mail. “For far too long, many of our nation’s elected officials have been crafting policies that contribute to the economic disenfranchisement of millions of Black people across the country,” said Gerald Adolph, Board Member of the Black Economic Alliance PAC. “By investing nearly $3 million in targeted gubernatorial, congressional and senate races, we can help ensure that candidates rallying for policies that lead to better employment opportunities and wages for Black Americans are victorious in November.” Their announcement comes as the BlackPAC also announced an $8 million push to mobilize voters through mailers and radio ads in Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee, Indiana, Nevada, Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, and California. And the nonpartisan Black Progressive Action Coalition, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit affiliated with BlackPAC, will team up with local advocacy groups to speak to voters about the issues and ballot measures to restore voting rights for people with felony convictions in Florida and criminal justice changes in Ohio.

CBS Shake-Up Continues as Richard Parsons Steps Down
The CBS Corp. Board of Directors announced Sunday evening that media entrepreneur Strauss Zelnick has replaced the newly appointed Richard Parsons as Chairman. Regular Beat DC readers will recall that CBS Corp. had added Parsons as one of six new Board members to help oversee its transition to new leadership after the departure of CBS’ longtime leader, Leslie Moonves, who resigned as CEO amid allegations of sexual harassment. Then, Parsons was named Interim Chairman of the Board later that same month. Parsons cited health reasons for his decision to step down in a statement. “As some of you know, when I agreed to join the board and serve as the interim chair, I was already dealing with a serious health challenge – multiple myeloma – but I felt that the situation was manageable,” he stated. “Unfortunately, unanticipated complications have created additional new challenges, and my doctors have advised that cutting back on my current commitments is essential to my overall recovery.” Parsons is widely known as a stabilizing force -- he led Time Warner after its disastrous merger with AOL, helped Citigroup after the 2008 recession, and was called in to help rehab the LA Clippers. Parsons did not announce if he was stepping down from his other duties. He is Co-Founder and Partner of Imagination Capital, a venture capital firm launched in November. He also has been a Senior Advisor for private equity firm Providence Equity Partners since 2009. The Brooklyn native played an important role in identifying the most recently added slate of CBS Directors. More here.
