In case there was any doubt Joe Biden is focusing his 2020 campaign on Donald Trump, the former vice president name-checked the president 44 times during his speech in Iowa on Tuesday.
Campaigning in Ottumwa, Iowa, Biden declared Trump was “literally an existential threat to America” while condemning his record on foreign policy, race relations and trade.
The House has voted to hold attorney general William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in civil contempt.
On a party-line vote of 229-191, House Democrats passed a resolution that would enable lawmakers to go to court to enforce their subpoenas against Barr and McGahn.
