Maxine ‘Reclaiming My Time’ Waters Still Has No Time for Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s Shit

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin apparently failed to learn anything the last time he went up against Auntie Maxine, aka U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)

Congress Has Trump’s Financial Records From Wells Fargo and TD Bank, and More Could be Coming

According to NBC News, both Wells Fargo and TD Bank,...

Trump Sues 2 Banks to Keep Democrats Out of His Finances

Trump Sues 2 Banks to Keep Democrats Out of His Finances

How do we know with certainty that the president of the United States is not a high paid sex worker who exclusively caters to Russian President Vladimir Putin?

We don’t, and that’s why House Intelligence and Financial Services committees have sought to get their hands on the president’s finances by issuing subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One in order to get a closer look at his personal...

Auntie Maxine Bids Impeachment Efforts Adieu, Shifts Priority to 'Getting That Report'

I’d be lying if I said I saw this coming, but now Auntie Maxine herself says not to hold your breath waiting for an impeachment of alleged president Donald Trump.

“[Impeachment has] never been discussed as a strategy for this caucus. It’s only a few of us,” she told Politico. “I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report.”

The report in question...

Auntie Maxine on Mueller Report: ‘This Is Not the End of Anything’

Auntie Maxine on Mueller Report: ‘This Is Not the End of Anything’

This weekend, the Justice Department announced that there was no evidence that our alleged president Donald Trump conspired with Russia during the infamous 2016 election.

These findings, courtesy of one Robert S. Mueller III, did not exonerate Trump, but failed to reach a conclusion on whether he definitively obstructed justice. As such, Jesus wept because no indictments will be handed down.

From 'Big Daddy' Clyburn to Wakanda Salutes: The Biggest, Baddest Congressional Black Caucus Has Arrived

Nobody knows what to call them yet.

For years it was just the Congressional Black Caucus, or the CBC. In the 1980s they were nicknamed the Conscience of the Congress. Several years ago contributor to The Root, Lauren Victoria Burke, launched a blog calling them Crew of 42. Of course that name didn’t fit for long as the largest collection of black political figures in America continued to grow...

In 2019, Maxine Waters Is Taking on Big Banks—and Trump’s Corrupt Coins

It’s a question that arose early on election night last week, as a nationwide Democratic surge propelled the party back into power in the House of Representatives: What will Rep. Maxine Waters do now?

Auntie Maxine's GOP Opponent to Speak With FBI After Tweeting Most Racist Fake Letter Ever

Although I have always believed there is no such thing as kinda pregnant, an intermediate Spades player or someone who a little bit racist, there are indeed levels of racism.

It was a Friday night in Washington D.C., and what was the so-called leader of the free world doing? Staying up past his bedtime to catch up on his favorite hobby: racist hate-tweeting.

Shortly before midnight, Donald Trump tweeted:

“Lebron [sic] James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”
