Five highlights from the tense Wray-Rosenstein hearing

In a classic example of schoolyard grandstand bullying, taunts and personal insult employed on behalf of Trump, the House Judiciary Committee Republicans assaulted Rod Rosenstein for 5 hours in the ongoing effort to discredit him, the Department of Justice, and the FBI. In so doing, they intended to undermine the Mueller investigation of Russia's machinations in our 2016 election. The performances were an abrogation of every Congressman's oath to uphold and support the Constitution, a disgrace to the rule of law, a deliberate subordination of the rules of critical discourse, and an insult to the rules of common civility. Their hatefulness on behalf of President Trump was an appalling example of everything we have come to abhor about politics today.

    Brevard College
    170 College Row, Brevard, NC 28712, USA

    Brevard College SGA is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a#NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action.

    Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship. Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school. Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day. We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns.

    Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020. Join us in saying #ENOUGH!
