Summary

At the moment, one would have to come to the conclusion that this disagreement is easily one of the defining characteristics of the 116th Congress.-- WHERE THINGS STAND: HEATHER CAYGLE, JOHN BRESNAHAN and REBECCA MORIN: “House Dems postpone vote rebuking Omar amid pressure from left”: “A vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in response to controversial comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar is set to slip past Wednesday amid intensifying pressure from the left both inside and outside the Democratic Caucus.“Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday that the vote would now likely happen Thursday and be updated to include language rejecting anti-Muslim bias. ‘I support the notion that we need to respond and we’re figuring out the appropriate way to respond.’“The debate over if — and how — to reprimand Omar for describing pro-Israel advocates’ ‘allegiance to a foreign country’ has exposed sharp divides within the caucus along generational, religious and ideological lines.” POLITICOMEANWHILE IN THE SENATE … BURGESS EVERETT and MARIANNE LEVINE: “McConnell preps new nuclear option to speed Trump judges”: “President Donald Trump’s stream of judges is about to become a torrent. At this rate, McConnell and Trump could leave few, if any, vacancies there for a potential Democratic president in 2021.“Even more alarming for Democrats, the GOP is also preparing to pull the trigger on the ‘nuclear option’ and change Senate rules once again with a simple majority to allow much quicker confirmation of lower court judges in the coming months.” POLITICO-- MCCONNELL has long seen his legacy tied directly to his impact on stacking the federal judiciary with conservative judges.A message from Google:Today, half of all jobs require digital skills. Learn more.TRUMP’S PARALLEL LIVES … NYT’S PETER BAKER and MAGGIE HABERMAN: “In the Middle of His Official Business, Trump Took the Time to Send Checks to Michael Cohen”: “On a busy day at the White House, President Trump hosted senators to talk about tax cuts, accused a Democratic congresswoman of distorting his condolence call to a soldier’s widow and suffered another court defeat for his travel ban targeting Muslim countries. On the same day he reportedly pressured the F.B.I. director to drop an investigation into a former aide, the president’s trust issued a check to Mr. Cohen in furtherance of what federal prosecutors have called a criminal scheme to violate campaign finance laws at the direction of Mr. Trump.” NYTABC 7 CHICAGO: “Shakeup possible in federal case against ex-congressman Aaron Schock,” by Chuck Goudie, Barb Markoff, Christine Tressel and Ross Weidner: “[L]ate Tuesday the ABC7 I-Team learned that something ... On Monday, a conservative group filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging that the PACs failed to properly disclose their spending.” WaPoBORDER TALES -- “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Migrants Cross in a Month,” by NYT’s Caitlin Dickerson: “The number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has once again broken records, with unauthorized entries nearly doubling what they were a year ago, suggesting that the Trump administration’s aggressive policies have not discouraged new migration to the United States. “More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, an 11-year high and a strong sign that stepped-up prosecutions, new controls on asylum and harsher detention policies have not reversed what remains a powerful lure for thousands of families fleeing violence and poverty.” NYTWAPO’S MARC FISHER: “‘Grab that record’: How Trump’s high school transcript was hidden”: “In 2011, days after Donald Trump challenged President Barack Obama to ‘show his records’ to prove that he hadn’t been a ‘terrible student,’ the headmaster at New York Military Academy got an order from his boss: Find Trump’s academic records and help bury them.“The superintendent of the private school ‘came to me in a panic because he had been accosted by prominent, wealthy alumni of the school who were Mr. Trump’s friends’ and who wanted to keep his records secret, recalled Evan Jones, the headmaster at the time. No matter what the memo says, it’s expected to be one of the few items on a fast track for being made public that will be closely scrutinized for insights into the inner workings of the special counsel’s tight-lipped investigation.“Barr’s report could very well end up being blank, which itself would be a telling reveal that gives President Donald Trump and the leaders of the Justice Department he appointed tangible proof that the special counsel was allowed to carry out his investigation without interference.” POLITICO2020 WATCH -- “Michael Bloomberg Will Not Run for President in 2020,” by NYT’s Alex Burns: “Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor who joined the Democratic Party last year to crusade against President Trump, announced he would not seek the White House himself in 2020, discarding plans to mount a maverick campaign that would have tested the party’s openness to a wealthy centrist with a chameleon-like approach to partisan politics. Biden Jr., the former vice president, entered the race.” NYT-- BLOOMBERG on Bloomberg.com, “Our Highest Office, My Deepest Obligation: I’m not running for president, but I am launching a new campaign: Beyond Carbon.”-- “Trump in trouble in Florida poll,” by Marc Caputo: “Donald Trump is in trouble in Florida, a state that’s crucial to his reelection hopes. Just 40 percent of Florida voters said they believed the president should be reelected, while 53 percent were opposed to a second term, according to a new Bendixen & Amandi International poll.” POLITICOTHE INVESTIGATIONS … -- CNN’S MANU RAJU and JEREMY HERB: “Republicans reject calls to probe Trump role in hush-money payments”: “Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, a senior member of Senate Judiciary who chaired the panel in the last Congress, wouldn’t say if he had concerns about Trump’s involvement in a hush-money scheme. ‘Possibly at some point -- I don’t know enough about it,’ Ernst said.” CNN-- WAPO’S ROZ HELDERMAN and RACHAEL BADE: “Former Trump adviser says he does not plan to cooperate with House Judiciary inquiry”: “The letter from an attorney for Michael Caputo, who worked for Trump during part of the 2016 campaign, represents the first skirmish in what is likely to be broad resistance from Trump aides and associates to new inquiries issued this week by the Judiciary Committee. ‘All four are reluctant to appear because they believe it’s a perjury trap designed to move toward impeachment of the president,’ he said.” WaPoTHE JUICE … -- FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO INSTITUTE OF POLITICS is naming its spring quarter fellows. It’s an approach that’s won him praise from many in the health sector, while garnering criticism from several of the targeted businesses like tobacco companies and the fast-growing e-cigarette industries.“‘He was able to do something very rare: He never got embroiled in a scandal, never got labeled with a toxic administration brush and had a great relationship with the President all at the same time,’ said one former White House official.
