TEAR GASThat’s how U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers met migrants, including women and children, on Sunday after American officials temporarily closed a border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico after a huddled mass of Central American migrants sought to cross. THE ART OF NO DEALThe incoming Mexican administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador said there is no deal yet with the U.S. that would allow asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are decided after reports indicated such an agreement had been reached. CLIMATE CHAOSThe Trump administration on Friday issued a scientific report that directly contradicts its own climate-change policies. MAGA officials are expected to ignore the report’s findings of the economic strain caused by climate change, even as it continues to cut environmental regulations, while opponents use it to mount legal attacks against the very administration that issued the report. PROBLEM SOLVERSThe bipartisan Caucus in Congress will meet with Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday to ask her to publicly back three of the group's proposed rules changes "to help spur immediate action on health care, immigration, and infrastructure." Pelosi, Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Jim Clyburn (D-SC), and Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) are all now running unopposed for Speaker, Majority Leader, Whip, and Assistant Democratic Leader. NATIVE AMERICAN STAFF… As Congresswomen-elect Sharice Davids (D-KS) and Debra Haaland (D-NM) make history on Capitol Hill as the first Native American women in Congress, Native American staff should occupy the halls of Congress as well.

COUNTING BILLS AND SHININGFormer Fox News President Bill Shine, who now serves as the White House’s top communications official under Trump, received $8.4 million in severance pay and is slated to receive bonuses valued at approximately $3.5 million -- sparking questions about a government official receiving payment from a media outlet, often a feeder to the president’s policies, where former WH Comms Director Hope Hicks is slated to become Chief Communications Officer for Fox News’ parent company.

Bob Menéndez Probes White House Over Journalist’s Murder 
Despite Donald Trump’s ambiguous free pass to Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman for ordering the murder and dismemberment of one of his own citizens, Washington Post’s Jamal Khashoggi, lawmakers are demanding a definitive statement. Hours after the president declared, in a statement filled with exclamation points, that the U.S. would stand with Saudi Arabia as a crucial economic and national security ally, Senate Foreign Relations Committee leaders Bob Menéndez (D-NJ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) penned a letter to 45. "In light of recent developments," Menéndez and Corker wrote in the November 20th letter, "we request that your determination specifically address whether Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for Mr. Khashoggi's murder." Multiple outlets have reported that the CIA concluded with high confidence that the Crown Prince was directly involved in the decision to kill Khashoggi. The Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act requires the president, upon receipt of a request from the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, to determine whether a foreign person is responsible for an extrajudicial killing, torture, or other gross violation of internationally recognized human rights against an individual exercising freedom of expression, and report to the Committee within 120 days with a determination and a decision on the imposition of sanctions on that foreign person or persons -- a point they highlight in the letter. So far, no response from the White House. Read the full letter here.
Mazie Hirono Wants DOJ to Investigate Claims that Facebook Retaliated Against Critics
Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) 
penned a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein urging him to expand any investigation into Facebook and Cambridge Analytica to include whether Facebook -- or any other entity affiliated with or hired by the social media giant -- hid information and retaliated against critics or public officials seeking to regulate the platform. The social media company admitted on Wednesday that a top executive hired a public relations firm to attack George Soros and undermine critics by publicizing their association with the billionaire Jewish philanthropist. The NYT reported last week that Facebook took significant steps to retaliate and spread disinformation about people who have criticized the company, which, if not properly disclosed, may have campaign finance implications. Joined by Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Chris Coons (D-DE), Hirono made the point that consumer data is at risk. “Since the 2016 election, both the government and Facebook’s own internal investigations have revealed that the company failed to adequately protect the data and trust of its 2.2 billion users. Facebook also failed to implement basic protocols to prevent manipulation by foreign adversaries working to undermine America’s political system,” the Senators wrote. “Given the staggering amount of data that Facebook has collected on both its users – even people who have not consented to use of the platform – these allegations raise profound concerns about the company’s willingness to protect the public and our democracy,” they continued. Embattled CEO Mark Zuckerberg told CNN he did not know about the concerted Soros attacks. Patrick Gaspard, who heads the Soros Foundation, says he finds it hard to believe that an attack like this wasn’t cleared at the highest levels. Read the full letter here.

Will Kamala Harris Keep Coveted Judiciary Post?
Unless Senate Democrats strike a deal, either with the Republican majority or with fellow Democrats on the Committee, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) may lose her coveted post on the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s an issue of Committee size and rank -- Democrats will not control the Senate in the new Congress, and Harris is the Committee's most junior member. Discussion of the move to possibly remove the Committee’s only Black woman has already sparked a tense backlash. The only other African American on the Committee is Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), and the Republican side of the dais is all white men and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Serious discussions about Committee size and composition will begin after the results of the Senate runoff election in Mississippi between Democrat Mike Espy and Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith are known. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) could potentially agree to expand the number of Republicans on the panel so that no Dems are forced off. But why would McConnell accommodate such a deal? Many Senate Republicans believe the Committee is too large and some of its members have openly expressed hostility towards Harris, a former prosecutor, during hearings. Harris is all but confirmed to launch a White House bid next year, and her post on the Committee would give her welcome exposure. The Senate Judiciary Committee has a full 2019 agenda, including an Attorney General confirmation and oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Stay tuned. More here.

Latest on Ben Ray Luján and Marcia Fudge House Leadership Bids
Congressman Ben Ray Luján
’s (D-NM) path to join the Democrats’ House leadership team is clear after Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) bowed out from the Assistant Democratic Leader race on Wednesday. Cicilline wrote a letter to his colleagues saying that Luján’s success as DCCC Chair in the midterms was why he dropped his bid: “Like many of you, I believe that Chairman Lujan deserves a place at the leadership table after helping usher in our historic Democratic victory ... Since Chairman Lujan entered the race, I have been asking myself how I can continue to effectively contribute to the Democratic Caucus in an elected leadership position, while recognizing Chairman Lujan’s critical role in our success.”
Cicilline will instead run for Chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, a position Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suggested the Caucus create for him. Meanwhile, the speculation on whether Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D-OH) would challenge Pelosi for the top House spot in the 116th Congress is over. Fudge last week decided not to run for Speaker after Pelosi assured her that Black women will be heard under her leadership. “My consideration was due in large part to the lack of sustained efforts that ensure diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels of the House,” Fudge said. Pelosi announced that she planned to restore a House Administration Subcommittee on Elections -- which the GOP eliminated in 2013 -- and would name the Ohio Dem as its Chair. With these developments, the top four spots on the Democrat’s leadership team are uncontested as of now. More here.

Eleanor Holmes Norton Wants Body Cams on All Federal Police Officers
Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)
and Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) introduced a bill to require uniformed federal police officers to wear body cameras and have dashboard cameras in marked vehicles. The lawmakers introduced the measure just before the one-year anniversary of the November 17th shooting of unarmed 25-year-old Bijan Ghaisar by U.S. Park Police officers. Ghaisar was fatally shot in his car by Park Police in Fairfax County, VA after he fled a car crash and was pursued by officers. Park Police have refused to discuss the shooting, and the names of the officers involved have not been released. Federal police officers aren’t currently equipped with body cameras. The bill states that footage from federal police body cameras “may not be withheld from the public on the basis that it is an investigatory record or was compiled for law enforcement purposes” in cases where officers are the subject of the investigation. It also requires all body-camera footage to be maintained for six months and then permanently deleted. But the footage must be maintained for three years if it captures use of force or an incident subject to a complaint. Officers would be required to notify people that they are being recorded, and crime victims, witnesses, and occupants of private residences shall be asked if they want the camera turned off the bill states. In-car footage must be retained for at least 90 days, the bill states, and each vehicle should have at least 10 hours of storage and wireless microphone capability. “Federal police are late in requiring body cameras and dashboard cameras, which help ensure transparency, protect the public and officers alike and hold bad actors accountable,” Norton said in a news release. “The federal government should follow the lead of state and local law enforcement departments across the nation, including D.C.’s D.C. police, that have implemented these best policing practices.” More here.

GOP Subpoenas Loretta Lynch
House Republicans are making one more push to look into Hillary Clinton’s emails before they lose control of the chamber and have subpoenaed former AG Loretta Lynch to testify on the issue. Judiciary Committee Chairman Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) issued subpoenas last week to Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey, calling on them to come before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees for a deposition. They have asked the former Obama-era AG to appear on December 4th as part of the Committees’ joint investigation into decisions made by DOJ in 2016. In a release, Republicans said they have repeatedly requested to interview both of them about their roles in certain decisions, but they have yet to voluntarily appear. Comey has been asked to appear on December 3rd, but he has said he will only appear for an open Committee hearing. Republicans will lose their subpoena power once Dems take control of the lower chamber in January. More here.
Lawmakers Push Back on President’s Call to Cut Hurricane Aid to Puerto Rico
Donald Trump asked Congress last week to stop providing relief and reconstruction money to Puerto Rico. He reportedly told congressional leaders and appropriators that he doesn’t want to include additional Puerto Rico funding in future spending bills. A bicameral group of lawmakers -- including Congressmen Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), Bennie Thompson (D-MS), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), and Senator Bob Menéndez (D-NJ) -- wrote Trump a letter condemning his comment, saying pulling federal relief aid would have a “catastrophic effect on the Island’s already fragile recovery.” In the letter, the lawmakers instead suggest that future legislation should preclude disaster relief funds from being used to pay for Puerto Rico’s debt. “President Trump and Republicans in Congress turned their backs on the American citizens of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, and the island is still suffering from their neglect,” Grijalva said. “The President’s ultimate responsibility is to keep Americans safe during times of disaster and recovery ... Certainly, disaster assistance funds shouldn’t be siphoned off to pay hedge funds and Wall Street creditors.  However, the answer isn’t to slash assistance to our fellow citizens who are in desperate need, but rather to provide the necessary aid and ensure that it is walled off from creditors,” added Velázquez. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) also signed on. See the full letter here.

Lawmakers Aim to Help President Drain the Swamp
A group of lawmakers thinks Donald Trump needs help fulfilling a campaign promise to “drain the swamp.” Hence, Congressmen Ted Lieu (D-CA), Rubén Gallego (D-AZ), and David Cicilline (D-RI) joined Congresswomen Linda Sánchez (D-CA) and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) to introduce the Restoring the Public Trust Act. The bill package incorporates a number of pieces of legislation aimed at strengthening ethical standards in the federal government to prevent government corruption and ensure accountability for the American public. The members said upon introduction of the bill, “One of the most surprising aspects of the Trump Administration has been how willingly they have shirked ethical norms—and how easily some of our current laws have allowed it to happen. Actions that would’ve been unthinkable in prior Administrations are standard practice in this one. If there is something positive to come out of the Trump Administration’s culture of corruption, it’s that we now have an acute understanding of the loopholes in our current anticorruption protections. Whether it’s using government airplanes for personal trips or forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for visits to an official’s commercial property, Trump’s willingness to wring the taxpayer dry needs to end.” More here.

Luis Gutiérrez and Chuy García Team Up to Help Latino Candidates
Outgoing Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) and his successor, Democratic Congressman-elect Jesús “Chuy” García, have teamed up to launch the Latino Leadership Council, a new PAC to help Latinx candidates and highlight issues important to the Latinx community. The pair said that the PAC will raise money and use it to back political candidates who will tackle problems such as immigration, neighborhood gentrification, and income inequality. “We want to create opportunities for people, both in politics and business, by making sure everybody knows the buying power of Hispanics, the entrepreneurial spirit of Hispanics, and that Hispanic representation matches that, which hasn’t always been the case,” Gutiérrez said. García said the Council was a result of discussions about how to build on Latinx turnout in the midterms. “We need to take advantage of this enthusiasm,” he said. “What we lack in the community, and what we hope to instill, is a culture of giving, to candidates, potentially to ballot initiatives that are important to the Hispanic community.” More here.

Ajit Pai Intros Plan to Block Spam Texts -- But It's Not Without Controversy 
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has proposed new regulations that he says would cut down on spam text messaging. Sounds like a welcome policy change. No one likes spam. However, it’s not without controversy. Pai is calling on his fellow Commissioners to approve a reassigned numbers database which would help legitimate callers know whether telephone numbers have been reassigned to somebody else before calling those numbers so they can direct their calls to parties who asked for them rather than individuals who have subsequently obtained those reassigned numbers. The more controversial measure Pai is proposing, however, would give text messaging the same legal status as high-speed Internet, in effect, offering wireless carriers such as AT&T and Verizon added leeway to block and filter text messages they recognize as spam. The FCC will consider these items at its next Open Commission Meeting on December 12th. It echoes the same argument Pai used when he tackled net neutrality. However, some rights groups say the FCC's light-touch solutions won't be enough to protect consumers -- and privacy advocates worry it could have the same underwhelming result. Pai’s move has drawn fire from consumer advocacy groups which say the government had already made abundantly clear in 2016 that wireless carriers had narrow permission to block and filter unwanted texts. The new measure could instead give telecom companies wider latitude to block even legitimate text messages. Pai’s new rules come as a Democratic-controlled House is preparing a significantly increased amount of oversight on the agency. More here.

African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund Raises $10 Million
The National Trust for Historic Preservation -- co-chaired by Ford Foundation’s Darren Walker and actress Phylicia Rashad -- announced that one year after the launch of the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, the organization has raised more than $10M dollars for the $25M initiative. The Action Fund aims to uplift stories of African American achievement, activism, and community, crafting a narrative that helps to reconstruct Black national identity while inspiring a new generation of activists to advocate for diverse historic places. In this inaugural year, the Action Fund was able to award 16 grants, totaling more than $1M, to preservation organizations across the country, with funding going to support the preservation of sites and stories of Black history. The grants, presented in July at Essence Festival, covered work in communities from Birmingham to the South Side of Chicago. The Action Fund has also supported four new National Treasure designations, including the childhood home of singer Nina Simone, and Memphis-based Clayborn Temple, famed for its role in the Sanitation Workers’ Strike of 1968. In the coming year, the National Trust will conduct research exploring the impact that preservation has on contemporary urban issues that disproportionately affect communities of color, as well as support HBCUs, ensuring that their histories and legacies are preserved.
