COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of January 12, 2018

Somebody knows me: I was hanging out at the Capitol steps to grab a chat with a passing Member. Tom Garrett stopped & met with some staff about 30 feet away. Moments later he turned and said, “…over there by the LEAP guy in the cowboy hat.” A minute later he came over and we had a substantive chat.

More Confidence: I cannot divulge my exact information. I can say that due to the number of Republicans leaving (who now don’t need to worry about re-election), the cooperation/pressure between Repub. Members and the Sessions action to tear up the Cole Memo…. We (my colleagues) and I have medium confidence we can break loose a major legislative break thru this year. Stay tuned!
