If you are interested in the politics of your country, you should subscribe to Committee News. This publication is different than the traditional legislative newsletter. Not only does it have a broad readership, it also features the opinions of many leading journalists. Its members represent different disciplines and work toward interdisciplinary collaboration in the news gathering and publishing industry. It is an excellent resource for journalists and aspiring journalists interested in the news. Here are three reasons why you should subscribe to Committee News:
Advocacy & Public Policy: The Advocacy & Public Policy Committee publishes news alerts that support its mission by monitoring governmental activities and social justice issues. It aims to inform the ARLIS/NA membership of current issues and developments in this field. It aims to stimulate conversation by bringing up recent news from a variety of viewpoints. However, please note that the content of these alerts is not representative of the views of the ARLIS/NA organization.
Republican-led committee: The Republicans led the Benghazi select committee that looked into the 2012 terrorist attack. The report is a step in the right direction, but Republicans are likely to play spoiler roles. That’s a bad sign for the Democrats, as they’ll probably be under investigation as well. The Democrats are unlikely to tolerate subpoenas if the Republican majority becomes majority. It’s better to get the details about the situation before it escalates.
Democratic lawmakers: Republicans have been unwilling to cooperate with the investigative committee. In April, the House Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas to former White House officials, campaign aides, and anyone involved in the planning of a rally outside the White House. Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee has requested testimony from Mark Meadows, the former chief of staff of Donald Trump. Moreover, the House Judiciary Committee recently voted to refer Meadows to the Justice Department for criminal contempt of Congress.
UC Chair N. Rothfels reported that she had met with Governance Reps on Friday, and major issues discussed were the need for a more robust dialogue with the UW-System regarding proposed policy changes, and the timing of the free speech survey to be distributed to students in the Fall of 2022. She will also invite President J. Rothman to meet with campus governance groups in Fall 2022 to discuss the status of proposed changes. So, the committee will continue to work with the university’s administration to ensure the continued success of campus governance.
Rep. Liz Cheney, a conservative Republican who Pelosi appointed to serve on the select committee, has been an outspoken voice in the Republican party since the Jan. 6 attack. She supported impeaching Trump and has criticized several members of her party, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was removed from committees due to incendient social media posts. It is possible that the former president will be impeached and removed from office.
