News Roundup: COVID-19 surge; Abbott’s anti-migrant purge; FBI (literally) phoned in Kavanaugh probe

In the news today: A new pandemic surge among unvaccinated Americans is again threatening to overwhelm regional health systems. A new report suggests that after Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of a pattern of sexual assaults, the resulting FBI investigation of the claims consisted of little to no actual investigation. Ever-ambitious Texas Gov. Greg Abbott follows through with his plan for “emergency” arrests of migrants in what Texas border counties deem to be a racist stunt and the ACLU believes to be flatly illegal.
