Despite Russia Investigation House Republicans Plan to Cut Election Security Funding

"We are better than what this president suggests we are", Villalba wrote in an opinion piece Wednesday in The Texas Tribune's "TribTalk". Trump declined to back US intelligence assessments that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 election and said he had no reason to believe Russian Federation would meddle. On Wednesday said he didn't believe Russian Federation was still targeting the USA and the upcoming midterms, defying intelligence assessments. Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.) said, "There is no crisis". However, this spending bill would cut funding to the grant.

The Washington Post reported that Democrats argued the flip-flops this week are proof that states need funding to secure elections.

In a vote of 217-199 Thursday, the House approved the appropriations bill for the Interior Department, environment and related agencies for fiscal year 2019, which excluded the proposed additional funding for the Election Assistance Commission.

Gutierrez, who signed on to the Articles of Impeachment that House Democrats introduced in November, also said he believes Trump is "a threat to American Democracy" and has already begun consulting with his colleagues "about whether those Articles of Impeachment can be expanded and updated to include the betrayal witnessed by the American people and the world this week".

House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, termed such arguments from Democrats a "shrewd political shenanigan that has no merit to it".

Many GOP leaders made stark statements of their knowledge of past and current Russian interference.

The amendment was defeated, 182-232, as the House debated a broader spending bill.

"Surely, we can rise above pandering to party and Putin to act on behalf of our freedom and our security", Hoyer said to applause from Democrats, over the bangs of the gavel as the House was called to order by the speaker.

Told his time was expired, Hoyer encouraged a "yes" vote on the amendment, and Democrats chanted, "USA!" Democrats broke out in chants of "USA!" It includes almost $59 billion for the Interior Department, Environmental Protection Agency and Treasury Department.
