CAPITOL HILL – Tomorrow, the House testifies for 10 minutes before the Supreme Court in a case to decide whether a citizenship question may be included on the 2020 census.

This question was first proposed to be included in the census by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Although the House is not a party to this suit between the litigating states and the Commerce Department, House General Counsel Douglas Letter says in a letter to the court, “The House as a chamber depends upon an accurate census for its institutional integrity, and its membership will be affected by the outcome of this case.”

At a House Oversight Committee hearing, Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay from Missouri grills Commerce Secretary Ross over his dissemination of the 2020 census citizenship question.

In other news, former Arkansas GOP Gov. Mike Huckabee blasts Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah after Romney tweets his disgust at President Donald Trump’s behavior described in the Mueller report. Huckabee tweets:

“Know what makes me sick, Mitt? Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS”

Looking forward, Democratic House leaders will meet by telephone today to discuss possible impeachment proceedings of the president based on obstruction findings of the Mueller report.
