Happy Birthday to C-SPAN and Pelosi, from swamp monsters and velociraptors: Congressional Hits and Misses
Week of March 25, 2019

The creature from the Black Lagoon paid Capitol Hill a visit this week, as D.C. institutions like C-SPAN and Speaker Nancy Pelosi celebrated their birthdays. Plus, Sen. Mike Lee roasted the Green New Deal resolution with a poster of Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor, and Reps. Markwayne Mullin and Ann McLane Kuster clashed over a certain word that starts with the letter “S.”

Also, while it was technically last week during recess, Roll Call is thrilled to wish the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network (C-SPAN) a happy 40th birthday! Thanks for letting us borrow your footage to make dumb congressional blooper reels.

Watch: Republicans call for Schiff to step down as Intel chairman during committee hearing
 

The nine Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee signed a letter calling for Chairman Adam B. Schiff to resign as chairman a few days after Attorney General William P. Barr told Congress that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report found no evidence President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.

“Despite these findings, you continue to proclaim to the media that there is significant evidence of collusion,” Rep. K. Michael Conaway said during a committee hearing. “As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties … and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee.”
