The news that a federal grand jury heard testimony from former Vice President Mike Pence’s top lieutenant reminds us that yes, the Justice Department is technically doing something to investigate the Jan. 6 coup attempt—we just don’t know what.
Virginia’s Republican Party is mostly falling in line behind a coup-participating crank of a candidate they once dubbed a “disaster,” again suggesting there’s still no lower bound on how much of a “disaster” you can be while still enjoying the party’s backing.
And at least one of the House Republicans who indignantly voted against protecting same-sex marriage, when Democrats pushed to pass those protections, apparently did so even as he was planning to attend his own son’s same-sex wedding days later. Yeah, he was still invited, apparently. No, I don’t know why either. But here’s some of what you may have missed:
- The DOJ may not be moving fast enough, but they aren’t ‘doing nothing,’ either
- Republicans are falling in line behind the candidate they called a ‘disaster’
- Architect of Texas abortion ban has his sights set on basic preventive health coverage next
- GOP lawmaker who voted against protecting same-sex marriage went to his gay son’s wedding days later
