Himes talks economy, debt reduction

The country is at great risk for a double-dip recession, but that doesn't mean the government should make haphazard spending cuts, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Greenwich, told a small group of local business peopleTuesday. "There are people, often on the other side of the aisle from me, who say, at all costs, cut," Himes said. "Scale back teachers, scale back government spending, scale back defense, you name it. Yes, we need to do that.

Himes: Flynn resignation highlights need for full Russia investigation
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on Michael Flynn’s resignation as National Security Adviser: “The Administration is portraying Michael Flynn’s resignation purely as a result of his misleading the Vice President and therefore the end of the story, urging us to move on to other issues as quickly as possible.  But this is only the beginning.  “It is very unlikely that Flynn acted alone in his outreach to the Russians and it is essential that we get a full accounting of all of the Administration’s ties and communications with Russia before and after the Inauguration. Flynn’s resignation, while important, represents just one more piece in the growing pile of evidence and concerns about the new Administration’s ties to Russia. All of the evidence needs to be unearthed, collected and investigated to reveal the true extent of those ties.” “The idea that the National Security Adviser put himself in a position to be potentially

Himes calls for Sessions resignation
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement calling for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions: “The position of Attorney General requires the very highest level of trust and faith from the American people. A man whose honesty and commitment to clarity and truth are in question cannot successfully occupy that role. “Revelations in the past 24 hours have made it clear that Jeff Sessions does not have the credibility, clarity of thought or independence necessary to preside over the Department of Justice at a time when the Department will be called upon to investigate the many facets of Russian interference in our presidential election. His initial misrepresentations to the United States Senate regarding his contact with Russians during the Presidential campaign, coupled with his failure to correct the written record at any subsequent point, followed by his muddled responses in the past day disqualify him from the critical role of
