Wednesday's Mini-Report, 4.3.19

Today's edition of quick hits.

Today's edition of quick hits:

* Look for more on this on tonight's show: "The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted to authorize a subpoena for the full, unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller on Russian interference in the U.S. election and alleged obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump."

* As expected, Mitch McConnell went "nuclear" this afternoon: "Senate Republicans on Wednesday used a controversial procedural tactic called the 'nuclear option' to change the chamber's rules to make it easier to confirm lower-level Trump nominees."

* Sending a message: "The House on Wednesday approved a nonbinding resolution to condemn the Trump administration's support for a lawsuit that would overturn Obamacare. Lawmakers approved the symbolic measure sponsored by freshman Rep. Colin Allred, R-Texas, in a 240-186 vote. The GOP-controlled Senate is not expected to take it up."

* Related news out of Wisconsin: "A federal court has approved Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul's request to withdraw Wisconsin from two lawsuits against the Affordable Care Act, handing a victory to Kaul and Gov. Tony Evers."

* This is bound to be an interesting investigation: "Federal authorities are investigating possible Chinese intelligence operations targeting President Donald Trump and his private Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, sources familiar with the never-before-reported investigation told the Miami Herald Wednesday."

* Puerto Rico: "Mr. Trump's apparent disdain for the island's leadership has led to a breakdown of communication between local officials and the White House. For weeks, [Gov. Ricardo] Rosselló has asked the White House for a private meeting with Mr. Trump to lay out the island's case for why it desperately needs federal funds for rebuilding after Hurricane Maria. But Mr. Rosselló's request has gone unanswered."
