CONGRESS is now gone for six weeks, which means, effectively, President DONALD TRUMP has a megaphone all to himself. It’s incredibly difficult for members of Congress to break through when they are outside of D.C. And here’s what the president is talking about … AN UPDATE ON JARED’S PLAN TO WIN INNER CITIES … SINCE SATURDAY, TRUMP has tweeted 13 times about House Oversight Chairman ELIJAH CUMMINGS, a Maryland Democrat who has a close relationship with Rep. MARK MEADOWS (R-N.C.). Here’s what he’s said this morning … … at 7:28 a.m.: “Someone please explain to Nancy Pelosi, who was recently called racist by those in her own party, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take…….a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly! … … at 7:39 a.m.: “Speaking of failing badly, has anyone seen what is happening to Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. It is not even recognizeable lately. Something must be done before it is too late. The Dems should stop wasting time on the Witch Hunt Hoax and start focusing on our Country!… 8:12 a.m.: ““Elijah Cummings has had his chance to address it (crime & conditions in Baltimore) for decades, and he hasn’t gotten it done.” @PeteHegseth @foxandfriends How can he get it done when he just wants to use his Oversight Committee to hurt innocent people and divide our Country!”– FLASHBACK: SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-Vt.) on West Baltimore, on Dec. 8, 2015, via The Baltimore Sun: “‘Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,’ Sanders told reporters later at the Freddie Gray Empowerment Center in Bolton Hill. ‘You would think that you were in a Third World country.’” Baltimore SunBALTIMORE SUN EDITORIAL … “Better to have a few rats than to be one”: “The White House has far more power to effect change in this city, for good or ill, than any single member of Congress including Mr. Cummings. If there are problems here, rodents included, they are as much his responsibility as anyone’s, perhaps more because he holds the most powerful office in the land. … “Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.”BALTIMORE SUN FRONT PAGE: “Trump blasts city, Cummings”— WAPO: “Maryland has words for Trump over tweet attacking Baltimore and congressman”SUNDAY BEST … BERNIE SANDERS replies to TRUMP, via JAKE TAPPER on CNN’S “STATE OF THE UNION”: SANDERS: “Jake it’s unbelievable we have a president of the United States who attacks American cities, who attacks Americans, who attacks somebody who is a friend of mine, Elijah Cummings is one of the most decent and outstanding members of the House of Representatives. He fights every day to improve life in his community.“I DO FIND IT INTERESTING that when we have rural Republican districts, where life expectancies go down, where downtowns are boarded up — where people are struggling. And people are struggling in rural America. They’re struggling in urban America. They’re struggling in suburban America. Our job is to bring people together to improve life for all people. Not to have a racist president who attacks people because they are African American. That is a disgrace. And that’s why we’re going to defeat this president.”MARGARET BRENNAN spoke to MICK MULVANEY on CBS’ “FACE THE NATION” BRENNAN: “But you know though that this is a majority-black district. And when the president calls it rat infested, he says no human being would live there. Do you understand that that is offensive to the Americans who do live there?”MULVANEY: “I understand that everything that Donald Trump says is offensive to some people. Keep in mind about two weeks ago, the president said things that were critical of AOC and her squad and was immediately accused of being a racist. A couple of days later Nancy Pelosi said some things critical of that same group of people and she was defended by the media and by folks on the left for not being racist when Donald Trump–”BRENNAN: “‘No human being would want to live there.’” MULVANEY: “When Donald Trump attacked people–” BRENNAN: “This is being perceived as racist, do you understand why?”MULVANEY: “I understand why but that doesn’t mean that it’s racist. The president is pushing back against what he sees as wrong. It’s how he’s done in the past and he’ll continue to do in the future.”ON CUMMINGS … CUMMINGS — like many Republicans and Democrats in Congress — is very, very tied to his community. We remember he once remarked to us that it seemed so easy for members of Congress to leave and make money, but he simply couldn’t because so many people in his community were counting on him. He’s been in elected office for 36 years. — COINCIDENTALLY, we were looking at his financial disclosure a few days ago, and noticed that he had given a series of speeches and donated the $3,600 to the Elijah Cummings Youth Program in Israel. Cummings has created a two-year, three-step leadership program where kids from his district get leadership training, go to Israel and return to serve their community. It’s aimed at bolstering ties between the African American and Jewish communities in his district. One of the donors is The Cordish Company — Reid Cordish worked for the Trump White House.Good Sunday morning. THE PRESIDENT is at his golf club in Virginia today.TV TONIGHT … KATY TUR and JACOB SOBOROFF’S “THE SWAMP” … NOTE FROM KATY: “Donald Trump weaponized draining the Swamp to his great advantage in 2016 but what does that actually mean? And he is doing it? The short answer is, it’s complicated and no. But the swamp is not a Donald Trump problem. It existed long before he became president and stands to persist long after. Jacob and I wanted to figure out how to clean up politics. While it is hard it isn’t impossible. In this episode we go Arizona and Montana plus of course Washington to investigate the corrupting influence of money in politics. It’s called, ‘For the People, Buy the People.’ We’ve been working on the series since October. In other words, you can watch my whole pregnancy in four episodes.“IT AIRS TONIGHT on MSNBC at 9pm EST and re-airs at 11pm EST. It’s called ‘American Swamp’ and it unfolds over four episodes.” The 1:45 trailer

SNEAK PEEK … THE PRESIDENT’S WEEK AHEAD … Monday: TRUMP will host a signing ceremony for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, and will have lunch with VP Mike Pence. Tuesday: The president will go to Jamestown, Va., for the 400th anniversary of the first representative legislative assembly. Wednesday: THE PRESIDENT will host the president of Mongolia at the White House. Thursday: PRESIDENT TRUMP will have lunch with Defense Secretary Mark Esper and then will travel to Cincinnati for a rally and fundraiser.STRATEGY … WAPO’S TOLUSE OLORUNIPPA and ASHLEY PARKER: “Trump campaign sees political advantage in a divisive appeal to working-class white voters”: “[T]rump’s advisers had concluded after the previous tweets that the overall message sent by such attacks is good for the president among his political base — resonating strongly with the white working-class voters he needs to win reelection in 2020.“This has prompted them to find ways to fuse Trump’s nativist rhetoric with a love-it-or-leave-it appeal to patriotism ahead of the 2020 election, while seeking to avoid the overtly racist language the president used in his tweets about the four congresswomen. “It’s not clear whether Trump will abide by such limitations, however. The president kicked off his Twitter attack Saturday morning by calling the black lawmaker’s Baltimore district a ‘very dangerous & filthy place.’” WaPoDIALING DON … NYT’S CARL HULSE: “For Trump, Staying on the Line Helps Keep the G.O.P. in Line”: “On a recent trip home to Wyoming, Senator John Barrasso received a message from the White House during his layover in Denver: The president is free. Call when you can.“For most people, such a summons would be extraordinary. For congressional Republicans like Mr. Barrasso, it is becoming old hat.“‘He will see you on a morning show or a Sunday show and call and want to talk about it,’ Mr. Barrasso, the No. 3 Senate Republican, said about President Trump. On that particular occasion, they conversed about a nomination issue, Mr. Barrasso recalled. ‘Then we can go off that topic and talk about golf and about Tiger Woods.’“Twitter is not the only means that Mr. Trump uses to communicate directly with his target audiences. He is also an eager caller to Capitol Hill, much more so than either of his two most recent predecessors. The constant contact is one reason that the president continues to defy predictions and retain strong Republican support, despite his often divisive public comments and unpredictable policy positions.” NYTWAPO’S PAUL KANE: “Congress is losing one of the only incentives it had to address the deficit”: “When the Senate signs off on a new budget deal this week, it will mark the last gasp of the Budget Control Act (BCA). Much derided for its parliamentary gimmicks, often revised and amended, the 2011 law is as popular on Capitol Hill as a root canal. ‘Good riddance,’ said Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), one of its architects, on Friday.” WaPoMICK MULVANEY spoke to CHRIS WALLACE on “FOX NEWS SUNDAY” about the two-year budget deal. WALLACE: “Does the president want the Senate to pass it, and if it does, will he sign this bill?” MULVANEY: “Yes, and yes. Keep in mind, the bill spends more money than the president wanted to spend — there’s no question about that. But as I have said on this show, and you and I have talked about before, elections have consequences. And when the Democrats won the House, everybody knew that we would end up spending more money. So what did we get in exchange: we got more money for defense, which we think that we need, we got more money for the VA, which we think that we needed, and, and this hasn’t gotten nearly the attention, protection for the Republican policies that were in the previous years’ bills. “KEEP IN MIND there’s policy riders that go on appropriations bills, where lawmakers who spend money try to use that money to change policy outcomes. And the Democrats wanted to limit our policies on the border, they wanted to limit our policies regarding pro life, they wanted to limit our policies regarding deregulation. And we won on every single one of those. And so did we spend more money than we wanted to? Yes. Did we get a lot in return? Yes.”IMPEACHMENT LITE … GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS spoke with HOUSE JUDICIARY CHAIRMAN JERRY NADLER on ABC’S “THIS WEEK”: STEPHANOPOULOS: “The committee has repeatedly made clear that it is assessing whether to approve articles of impeachment with respect to the president. So — so how much of this debate over whether or not the House is pursuing impeachment is a semantic debate? You have an impeachment inquiry going, don’t you?”NADLER: “We are examining — I’ll just repeat what we have said in our court filings — we are — we have impeachment resolutions before the committee. We are conducting investigations to determine whether we should report them to the House.“We are considering those resolutions and we will make a determination after we get more evidence as to the president’s crimes that we had from the Mueller report, but also as to other things, as to his violations of the Emoluments Clause, his failure to defend the – to defend the constitution against continuing Russian attacks.STEPHANOPOULOS: “So that is an impeachment investigation?” NADLER: “We are investigating whether to report – whether to approve articles of impeachment that’s – that are before the committee, and we will make that determination.”CHUCK TODD spoke to HOUSE INTELLIGENCE CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF on NBC’S “MEET THE PRESS”: TODD: “Was there any part of Director Mueller’s testimony you found unsatisfying?SCHIFF: “You know, look, I wish that he had testified in more narrative fashion, that the words didn’t need to be coaxed from him as much as they did.”TODD: “You were talking, you were hoping it would bring it alive, is what you said I think last week, right? SCHIFF: “And I think that it did. But it came alive I think more through very short questions and very short answers rather than great deal of description from the witness. But Chuck, I think we knew that going into the hearing. And, as you might recall, what I was saying before, we shouldn’t have too many expectations because we know the sum and substance of his testimony. But nonetheless, most people have had that filtered by the misleading characterization by people like Bill Barr. So it was very important to bring him in.”

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMM … KENNEDY VS. MARKEY?, via STEPHANIE MURRAY of Massachusetts Playbook: Someone’s poll-testing a head-to-head matchup between Sen. Ed Markey and Rep. Joe Kennedy III.KENNEDY HAS PREVIOUSLY SAID he would not run against Markey, who’s up for reelection in 2020, though he’d consider running for Senate if a seat opened in the Bay State. But last week a live-caller poll was conducted in the state lasting between 10 and 15 minutes, according to two people who took the poll. THE SURVEY BEGAN BY TESTING the favorability of Markey’s existing primary challengers — Shannon Liss-Riordan and Steve Pemberton — along with Kennedy, state A.G. Maura Healey and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. From there, the poll focused only on Kennedy and Markey. THE POLL ASKED SEVERAL TIMES whether the person surveyed would vote for Kennedy or Markey if the Senate race were the next day. And it compared the ages of Markey, 73, and Kennedy, 38. It tested a negative line about Markey’s 43-year tenure in Congress, suggesting he is out of touch, and a negative line saying Kennedy has not led on issues like marijuana legalization and “Medicare for All.” The poll also asked about the Green New Deal, the resolution Markey introduced with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earlier this year.“CONGRESSMAN KENNEDY is running for re-election in the House, as he has said many times,” Kennedy spokesperson Emily Kaufman told POLITICO in a statement on Saturday. Asked whether the congressman commissioned the poll, Kaufman declined to comment. 2020 WATCH … — BOSTON GLOBE’S JESS BIDGOOD: “Elizabeth Warren wants to break up big tech. Its workers don’t want to break up with her”: “Although Warren has painted tech giants such as Google and Facebook as modern-day villains in her scathing picture of the American economy, she is emerging as a top choice for donations from tech workers, according to an analysis of campaign contributions by The Boston Globe.“With her denunciations of big tech and corporate greed, Warren has tapped into simmering discontent within the industry itself about the size, power, and ethics of its companies. So, while tech executives have often resisted calls from Washington to regulate the industry, employees are contributing to Warren and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the candidates with the most aggressive positions on corporate oversight.” Boston Globe— DAVID SIDERS in EL PASO: “What Beto O’Rourke’s Dad Taught Him About Losing”2024 WATCH … — OHIO REP. JIM JORDAN will head to Anderson, S.C., Aug. 26 for Rep. Jeff Duncan’s (R-S.C.) 9th Annual Faith & Freedom BBQ. … QUOTE from the news release: ““I’m excited to bring Jim to Anderson for my ninth Faith and Freedom BBQ,. Jim is a tireless advocate for citizens and the rule of law. While many of my colleagues on the left perpetuate a narrative based upon a bought and paid for dossier used to spy on President Trump, Jim has fought tirelessly to bring to light the conduct of and lack of faith the American people have in the Department of Justice as it relates to its investigation of President Trump.”QUITE TELLING that this is what Duncan chose to highlight: that Jordan has the president’s back. It’s all about Trump. WHAT PUTIN’S UP TO … AP/MOSCOW: “Nearly 1,400 detained in Moscow protest; largest in decade”: “OVD-Info, which has monitored police arrests since 2011, said the number of the detentions from Saturday’s protest reached 1,373 by early Sunday. The overwhelming majority of people were soon released but 150 remained in custody, OVD-Info and a lawyers’ legal aid group said Sunday.“Crackdowns on the anti-government protesters began days before the rally. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny was arrested and sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail for calling for Saturday’s protest against election authorities who barred some opposition candidates from running in the Sept. 8 vote for Moscow city council.” AP

I’m sure we’re going to figure out who did this and bring them to justice.’ The horrific scene unfolded just before 11 p.m. Saturday as the annual ‘Old Timers Day’ party was wrapping up its second day with thousands in attendance.“One person was fatally shot and 11 others were injured — but as of Sunday morning, cops were still trying to figure who pulled the trigger morning and why.” N.Y.
