COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of June 30, 2017

Renewing Foreign Relations: Friday I had a most enjoyable lunch with a customs officer attached to the German embassy…a follow-up to the reception a few weeks ago. We discussed how terrorists use drug smuggling routes to bring in weapons and bad guys.

Tough Duty/Work: Thursday evening I was invited and attended a soiree at the Trump Plaza for two Congressmen. It was enjoyable and productive. The hors-oeuvres were again amazing.

Step back and analyze: As we – the Team of Four – make more progress in the House and Senate, we realize that our bills will receive neither a hearing nor a vote for years to come. Thus, beginning next month, I will book myself and Don Murphy into every Rotary type club, every monthly VFW and American Legion meeting, talk radio show, editorial boards, etc. in the Congressional district of the committee chairman, Goodlatte, R-VA (near Roanoke). We will urge his constituents to call the Congressman and request a vote. If this strategy bears fruit, I would go to Speaker Ryan’s district in Wisconsin to do the same. Stay Tuned.
