Weekly Update - 12.15.19

Good afternoon and welcome to our Week-End Update. 

This was a very important and busy week in both Pennsylvania and Washington. I can’t begin our weekly update without addressing how great it was to welcome President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to Hershey on Tuesday. This event was just a few miles away from the District and many from the 9th were in attendance. I was able to address the crowd and I can tell you that Pennsylvania is ready to re-elect President Trump. Click here or on the picture below to watch my remarks.

Below, Shelley and I are pictured with State Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill, radio host RJ Harris and Dave Bray USA.

Are you tired of winning yet? Yep. me neither. Under President Trump’s leadership, our country is winning… taxes are lower, the economy is thriving, unemployment is at record lows, our border is more secure and our country is safer. We can’t afford to stop now. We must re-elect President Trump and Keep America Great.

As I am sure you are aware, it is more critical than ever, we ensure Republicans win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives. As we watch Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler continue this sham impeachment charade, it is clear that we need a change in leadership in the U.S. House. Nancy Pelosi has wanted to impeach President Trump since before he even took office.

As I have stated all along, this process has not been fair. Sixteen out of the twenty-four Democrat members of the House Judiciary Committee, the Committee that this week drafted articles of impeachment, voted to bring up the President’s impeachment in mid-July before any calls with Ukraine took place. Further, Jerry Nadler has supported impeachment since the day he became Judiciary Committee Chairman. This should be an outrage. We are witnessing a politics-driven attempt to impeach a duly-elected President, which is a complete abuse of what congressional impeachment powers were meant to be.

Weekly Update - 12.6.19

Good evening and welcome to our Week-End Update.

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends. Shelley and I were blessed to be surrounded by our family as we celebrated and reflected upon all that we are thankful for, including living in the greatest country in the world.

Another holiday tradition we celebrated, along with many other Pennsylvanians, was the beginning of deer hunting season. Our District is home to some of the greatest game lands in the nation. My son, Danny, and I were able to head out and spend some quality time hunting. We didn't get to spend a lot of time out in the woods, but we will be out again. We wish all those hunters a safe and successful hunting season.

Weekly Report - 11.24.19

Good afternoon and welcome to our Week-End Update.

The impeachment hearings have been an unmitigated disaster for the Democrats despite two weeks of hearings. They have yet to prove any quid pro quo involving President Trump.

And this just in… Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats: “The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.”

Speaker Pelosi makes it clear that she believes it is DANGEROUS “to let election decide” the President’s fate. She believes Your Voice and Your Vote shouldn’t count. Here Speaker Pelosi acknowledges their true motivation for moving forward with this taxpayer-funded impeachment campaign.

Worse yet for the Democrats, their star witness, U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, admitted under oath that the President never said or did anything close to an impeachable offense. The latest in a long string of witnesses that have done nothing but vindicate the President of any wrongdoing. Watch as Congressman Mike Turner brings clarity to Ambassador Sondland's statement that President Trump did not commit an impeachable offense and highlights Congressman Schiff's misstatement that Sondlond's statements proved their case for impeachment. This phrase may get overused, but this is Fake News at its finest.

Weekly Update - 11.16.19

Good afternoon and welcome to our Week-End Update.

The impeachment hearings are continuing despite the following: this is a highly biased process, the leading Democrat players have predetermined presumptions of guilt and have been untruthful about contact with the whistleblower, and there has been no evidence of quid pro quo. There has also been significant opportunity lost for America. Democrat leadership has prioritized politics over the people, instead of bringing the USMCA to the floor, lowering prescription drug costs, and passing an infrastructure bill. Click here to watch my remarks on the floor of the House regarding this unfair process.

Weekly Report - 11.9.19

Good afternoon and welcome to our Week-End update.

Congress was out of session this week. As Tuesday was Election Day across Pennsylvania, I would like to congratulate all of the statewide and local Republican candidates who won. With the current climate, it is critical we elected constitutional conservative candidates to office at every level.

We had meetings with constituents and interest groups throughout the week, and we would like to highlight some of the events we attended. 

On Monday, we attended the swearing-in ceremony for our new Pennsylvania Public Utility Commissioner (PUC) Ralph Yanora. Ralph is the Founder and CEO of Pennsylvania Water Specialties Company and has been in the gas and water distribution industry for over forty years. The PUC oversees public utility and services operations around the Commonwealth, in sectors including water, energy, telecommunications and transportation. This an important job and I know Ralph will be of great value to the Board. Below is a picture of Ralph, accompanied by his family, being sworn in by former Supreme Court Justice Correale Stevens.

Weekly Update - 11.1.19

Good evening and welcome to our Week-End Update.

I know it was Halloween yesterday, but this week in Washington was the scariest one yet.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are holding hearings in secret with regard to the impeachment process and the only information the media is providing to the public comes from Chairman Adam Schiff. The Republicans are calling for a full public disclosure of hearings. Republicans have asked for hearing transcripts to be released and the resolution they called for only calls for one public hearing and President Trump's counsel isn't even allowed to participate.

Why? There can only be one reason, they don't want you to see the full truthful testimony because it does not help their case against the President. This is the definition of a charade. It is smoke and mirrors. The process is wrong. The players have a predetermined conclusion of guilt...since there is not evidence at all of quid pro quo... they have no case.

Weekly Update - 10.25.19

Good evening and welcome to our Week-End Update.

This week, I was honored to accompany both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on their trips to the Commonwealth.

On Monday, I joined Vice President Pence at SCHOTT North America in Duryea, Pennsylvania to discuss the importance of passing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). SCHOTT North America is a Pennsylvania-based company that manufactures glass for many products.

The Vice President’s comments on the USMCA were clear...we need to pass this bill immediately. This pact will ensure our country has free, fair and reciprocal trade deals that supports hardworking American farmers, businesses and families.

Weekly Update - 10.18.19

Good evening and welcome to our Week-End Update.

We were back in session in Washington, D.C. and we had a busy week. Before I address the unrest in Syria, I would like to again touch on the Democrats’ continued witch hunt against President Donald Trump.

The Democrats' latest witch hunt of President Donald Trump has sunk to new lows this week. Not only have House Democrats failed to produce one actual shred of evidence to spur their current investigation into impeachment, now they are conducting the entire debacle behind closed doors. On Thursday, they kicked me out of an impeachment hearing. A hearing that was unclassified and the Democrats refused to open it to the public and Members of Congress. If the Democrats feel they have a case, why are they conducting these hearings in secret?

I addressed this issue on the floor of the U.S. House. Click here to watch.

Weekly Update - 10.12.19

Good morning and welcome to our Week End Update.

Democrats are continuing their desperate efforts to unlawfully remove President Donald J. Trump from office because they cannot beat him. Even more concerning is the fact that the President has not been afforded the most elementary level of due process.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has no intention of bringing this to the House floor for a vote, confirming that this is a deplorable, very serious political stunt. The President is right to call Democrat leadership out for what this is – a sham.

I traveled to the Fox Studies in New York to speak with Stuart Varney on Fox Business about the Democrat's obsession with attacking the President...even at the cost of hurting the American public. They have refused to pass the USMCA and taking action on a litany of other pressing issues like healthcare or securing the border. Click here to watch the interview.

Additionally, I sat down with Sam Lesante for an interview and a congressional update. Click here to watch.

This week, we visited the Schuylkill-Carbon Pennsylvania Farm Bureau dinner and I spoke about dairy labeling, the USMCA, energy issues, and stormwater management in the District. It’s time to pass the USMCA – trade with Canada and Mexico supports more than 470K jobs in Pennsylvania alone. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced this week a letter to Speaker Pelosi asking her to push forward approval of the trade deal negotiated between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. It's time the Speaker put the American public over politics.

Weekly Report - 10.5.19

Good afternoon and welcome to our Week End Update.

The investigation launched by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats into a phone conversation President Donald Trump had with the Ukrainian President continues to dominate the headlines. It is just the latest in a long string of investigations launched by Congressional Democrats in a desperate attempt to go after our President. Why? Because they lost an election.

This is an investigation in search of a wrongdoing and the House Democrats have yet to state the reasons for impeachment. The Constitution limits grounds of impeachment to "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." None of the evidence has been provided to support any case against President Trump. The evidence was easy to attain as the White House released the telephone transcript from his call with the Ukrainian President.

What we do know is that former Vice President Biden did admit to threatening Ukraine with withholding federal dollars in attempt to scuttle a Ukraine investigation into a company tied to his son Hunter Biden. That deserves to be investigated and why Rudy Giuliani was doing so.  Despite the cries from the mainstream media saying otherwise, just because former Vice President Joe Biden is running for President, doesn't mean his past actions should not be investigated. 

One pattern has become clear... every time the President is vindicated of one accusation, the Democrats come up with another.
