To: House Judiciary Committee Republicans and Other Key Contacts. The seemingly never-ending deluge of revelations of serious problems, to include alleged criminal conduct, within the DOJ and the FBI has caused me to lose confidence in the DOJ and the FBI. It appears that the DOJ and the FBI have assumed autonomy. That is frightening. Diligent oversight should have kept those agencies in check but there has been an oversight failure.
For the below reasons, it is urged that you ask the President to waive executive privilege as to the House Judicial Committee subpoenaing certain FBI and DOJ officials to testify under oath before your Committee. Such a waiver can greatly enhance the efficacy of your performing Congress’ Constitutional oversight obligation. Let’s not repeat the past failures to obtain requisite testimony, e.g., the Burford, Miers, and Holder disputes. (See the cited document infra.)
Congress does not have the taxing power to provide for the welfare of individual states. That power is reserved to each state or to the people as an unenumerated constitutional power under the Tenth Amendment; and, the Federal government is estopped from invading that state power because it has no enumerated power to do so. Moreover, Congress is expressly obligated to provide for the general welfare of the United States, not individual states. (U.S. Const., art. I, sec. 8, cl. 1; U.S. Const., art.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
