News Roundup: New coup details; Republicans issue new debt ceiling threat

In the news today: There’s now confirmation that former U.S. attorney Byung Pak resigned his post after refusing to go along with Trump team demands that supported Trump’s claims of election “fraud” in Georgia. Trump also intended to fire and replace the acting U.S. attorney general for not supporting the scheme. Republicans lawmakers are again threatening to hold the nation’s finances hostage rather than agree to an increase of the “debt ceiling.” And yes, that’s during a nationwide pandemic.

In the meantime, that Republican state-led pandemic surge only continues to get worse, and the governors responsible for the new surge aren’t backing down in their demands that their states take no particular precautions.

Here’s some of what you may have missed:
