14 Mar 7:28pm House votes 420-0 for Mueller report to be made public
The Guardian
Democratic-backed resolution comes as the special counsel appears to be nearing an end to his investigation The House has unanimously voted for a resolution calling for any final report in the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public. The symbolic action designed to pressure the attorney general, William Barr, to release as much information as possible when the inquiry ends. The Democratic-backed resolution, which passed 420-0, comes as Mueller appears to be nearing an end to his investigation. Lawmakers in both parties have maintained there will have to be some sort of public discussion when the report is done – and privately hope that a report shows conclusions that are favorable to their own side.

14 Mar 3:00am Joe Biden faces tough choices on fundraising for potential 2020 run
The Guardian
The former vice-president has strong ties with Wall Street but the Democratic presidential field prizes small-donor support Former vice-president Joe Biden has said he is in the “final stages” of making a decision on whether to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. The move could even come as soon as this weekend when Biden delivers a Saturday speech to the local Democratic party in Delaware, the state he served as a US senator from 1973 to 2009. But some are already warning that Biden’s ties to the business community and Wall Street could serve to undermine his avuncular reputation as “middle-class Joe” within a party increasingly dominated by progressive politics on social and economic issues.

Lawmakers have never before invoked the decades-old War Powers Resolution to stop a foreign conflict, but they are poised to do just that in the bid to cut off US support for a war that has triggered a humanitarian catastrophe.
