WASHINGTON -- Democrats and Republicans alike decried President Trump's tweet about the Russia investigation on Capitol Hill Friday. "It certainly sounds like the president is adding Rod Rosenstein to the enemy's list along with Bob Mueller and James Comey and an ever increasing number of people," Sen. Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said. "What really concerns me that the president is attacking his own deputy attorney general who appointed the special counsel.
CAPITOL HILL -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify to Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday morning -- in a sequel to last week's appearance by the fired FBI Director James Comey. The last time Sessions testified was his confirmation hearing in January. "I didn't have-- did not have communications with the Russians," he said. Since then, Sessions has acknowledged meeting with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, in 2016.
CAPITOL HILL -- Vice President Mike Pence and Republican leaders met Monday afternoon to go over the administration's first major budget proposal, due out Tuesday. The White House wants to balance the budget in 10 years, partly through deep cuts to social programs. For starters, the proposal embraces the $800 billion in Medicaid cuts outlined in the House Obamacare replacement bill -- despite candidate Trump's promise not to touch Medicaid. "Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
