News Roundup: GOP looks to block insurrection probe as conspiracists seek new election powers

In the news today: Senate Republicans have no intention of allowing a full probe of the Jan. 6 insurrection. In the meantime, some of the party’s biggest promotors of election conspiracy theories and democracy-damaging hoaxes are plotting how best to overturn future election results. As it becomes increasingly clear that Republican orthodoxy no longer even allows for infrastructure spending, if that spending runs afoul of previous Republican tax cuts, Democrats have a decision to make: Do they force the spending through or abandon the effort? And if not now, when?
