Another GOP Member Retires, Iran Seizes Third Oil Tanker and AOC Staff Under Investigation

Bill Hurd Retires

Another Texas GOP member is retiring from politics. Rep. Will Hurd announced on Twitter that he will not seek reelection in 2020. Hurd is the third House Republican from Texas to bow out of the 2020 election.

The former CIA officer has been critical of President Trump’s stance on the border wall. Hopefully, someone who supports the US and keeping our borders safe will step up and take Hurd’s place.

Saikat Chakrabarti, AOC’s chief of staff, resigned on Friday after reports of the government investigating campaign finance misconduct. The investigation is focusing on political action committees started by Chakrabarti. He has been seen as the creative and strategic mind behind AOC’s campaign and her Green New Deal.

Well, well, well. After months of falsely accusing President Trump of campaign violations, it seems like the real criminals are now being exposed.
