News Roundup: Manchin and Sinema still playing games; DHS downplayed January 6 violence

In the news today: Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema continue to imperil infrastructure and climate change legislation and continue to offer no specifics about how to gain their support.

New information on the January 6 insurrection shows the Trump-era Department of Homeland Security was downplaying the violence even as it unfolded on television screens. Any guesses why?

In better news, it turns out that “vaccine mandates” are working spectacularly when it comes to actually spurring Americans into getting their shots. But that doesn’t mean Republican lies about the vaccine are letting up. Here’s some of what you may have missed:
