Repub­li­can says Au­gust re­cess may go

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Rep. Cathy McMor­ris Rodgers said Mon­day that she would be will­ing to can­cel the Au­gust

re­cess if that’s what it takes to get things done.

“We are about get­ting re­sults, and we are fo­cused. The House and the Se­nate and the White House are fo­cused on re­sults, and I’m will­ing to stay here if that’s what it means,” the Wash­ing­ton Repub­li­can, who heads the House Repub­li­can Con­fer­ence, said on MSNBC.

She also said Pres­i­dent Trump’s tes­ti­mony in the Rus­sia case might put the me­dia “brain­wash” to rest. The pres­i­dent said ear­lier that he would be open to tes­ti­fy­ing in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“If the pres­i­dent is will­ing to do that, that’s great. It means he has noth­ing to hide,” she said. “I just feel like the me­dia con­tin­ues their drum­beat and re­ally try­ing to brain­wash Amer­ica against some re­ally good peo­ple rather than re­ally fo­cus­ing on the job that we’re do­ing.”
