Dem. Rep. announces intent to resign from Congress and join Biden administration

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) announced on Tuesday that he’s quitting Congress in order to serve as an adviser to Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden.

Richmond’s resignation announcement could spell bad news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who is already under duress after Democrats lost a number of critical house seats in November’s election.

Democrats lead the House by one of the narrowest margins in history and losing another critical vote could be disastrous to Pelosi’s plans. However, that won’t stop Richmond from moving on and moving up.

“The future has a habit of arriving unannounced, and I am here to announce the hardest decision of my life,” Richmond said Tuesday. “Before Jan. 20, I will resign my seat in the United States Congress and take a position in the Biden-Harris administration.”

According to Fox News, Richmond has represented Louisiana’s 2nd district for nearly a decade and has sat on a number of subcommittees including the House Ways and Means, Homeland Security and Judiciary Committees.

The Biden transition team revealed that they’ve tapped Richmond as a “leader in helping to enact landmark criminal justice reform” as part of the Biden White House’s Office of Public Engagement.

Richmond’s resignation shouldn’t come entirely as a surprise, as he served as national co-chairman of the Biden-Harris campaign and currently is serving as a co-chair of the Biden-Harris transition team.

Despite the fact that the outcome of the presidential election has yet to be certified, the Biden campaign is taking actions to initiate a transition, accelerating the process of staffing his cabinet and preparing to take over as commander-in-chief.

President Trump has refused to concede, launching a number of lawsuits in battleground states such as Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada due to election “irregularities” and allegations of outright fraud in those states.

Terry Bell you are showing your learnin so to speak. I was raised in the south and you do not use derogatory comments about anyone. If someone called you a faggot you would get upset, right? Please stop the name calling, it is what gives credance to the outrage. We all have to get along here in the USA in order to make it a better country and not give the enemy ways to hurt everyone.

Howard, you are mostly right and they do have proof of both. But there is another billionaire. I cant remember his name for the life of me. He also supplied $$ up north in the pipeline jobs. Sorry i dont know my history but it was the 1st time ive ever heard his name and that was just before the election. Im also sure the Clinton foundation was involved. It is said that he pays with stacks of crisp new $50 bills.

Isn’t it odd how people who do not have the vocabulary to express themselves resort to profanity or worse ? Scientists who have studied this phenomenon concluded that such persons have the mentality of a fifth grader. I would rate them even lower – maybe a third grader.

I find it amusing, myself, that the hypocrites that like to pretend they are better than those they disagree with are the same group that hold the indisputable record for the longest destructive temper tantrum in all recorded history. And having, obviously, learned nothing in all their failed endeavors, I would rate them eq. to early preschool at most.

Well, Cedric Richmond may regret his decision “to join the NON-EXISTENT Joe Biden Presidential Team”…LOL! If anyone here is up on the latest with the 2020 election race and what has been discovered thus far….YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT…LOL!!! If not, you may want to find “the lastest from Sidney Powell, an attorney and member of the Trump team….!!

We do not stoop to the low levels of the democrat-Communists.
Do not use the “n” word –EVER!
We have proven beyond doubt
that democrat-communists have thoroughly corrupted the American Election System. We MUST come together and save our democracy, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. These mean nothing to the democrat-communists. They have proven they are traitors.
The United States of America and her Democracy is well worth saving.
For the record, I am a caucasian 70+ great grand mother raised to be a yellow dog democrat but learned the hard way that THAT democratic party no longer exists.

I am not surprise on what the left will do anymore…I just hope we Republicans go after every little wrong thing the Democrats do…starting with Biden’s son Hunter and back to Hillary’s email dishonesty. Let’s go after the crooked FBI misdeeds as well. Boy ..this is going to be a fun 4 years!!

Lynn !!

That was their plan to begin with !!!
Even back to 2008, Obama told us that America is on its way to be “fundamentally
transformed”
Anyone on the Republican side, or the media paid attention to that, or even asked : fundamentally transformed into what ????
Kind of late now , unfortunately!!!!
Only God could help us now !!!!

Don’t watch Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC. Fox news killed themselves with viewers when they started calling states for Biden when people were still standing in line to vote and only 76% of the state had reported. So they now are below CNN as far as viewership. I was an avid Fox News viewer since they started but now I watch OAN and Newsmax they are more upbeat and fair.

Don’t forget Hunter has left a LOT of REAL EVIDENCE to convict himself, his dad, and his uncle.
PLUS, there are eye-witnesses to all their traitorous deeds.
We have a maximum of 2 months to bring these crooks to justice — American Style.

So, U.S.. Att. Gen. Wm. Barr, get on you stick, do your job and bring these criminals DOWN !!

What “Biden Transition Team”??????? After watching Giuliani and Sydney Powel on TV a few minutes ago on Newsmax they are getting ready to kick some democrats butts all the way to kingdom come. In fact Biden won’t even know what hit him. So anyone jumping on the Biden transition team understand we Trump voters and we are the American people are pushing back hard and say not just NO but HELL NO!!!!
