More on Congress
Congressional Democrats from Maryland are asking for thousands of pages of documents to review the business practices of the apartment rental company owned by Jared Kushner, son-in-law and senior adviser to President Donald Trump.
U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown said Thursday that President Donald Trump's response to events in Charlottesville shows he is "unfit for office" and called on Republicans in Congress "to take meaningful action to rein in this administration."
Brown, a freshman Democrat who represents portions of Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties , said he plans to vote in favor of censuring Trump, who has been roundly criticized for his comments this week that violence at a white supremacist rally was the fault of "both sides."
For Paula Neira, joining the military felt like a calling.
She graduated from the Naval Academy with distinction in 1985, and served in Operation Desert Storm. She had hoped to spend decades fighting for her country.
But Neira resigned her commission in 1991 after realizing “there was no way to continue to serve and live authentically.”
Neira, who is transgender, instead spent the following decades fighting for equality in the military. That’s how, she says, she’s found a way to continue serving her country.
Legislation introduced by three D.C.-area lawmakers Wednesday would create an interagency working group to assist federal employees who are victims of data breaches or other cyber mischief.
That working group would be led by an “interagency cyber victim response coordinator” who would also report annually to Congress on the office’s efforts to aid federal employees victimized by data breaches, according to the bill sponsored by Reps. Anthony Brown, D-Md., Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., and Rob Wittman, R-Va.
