July date for Steve Bannon's contempt of Congress trial

Doesn't mean the 1/6 hearings are doomed. House has reams of testimony and video. It can proceed w/o Bannon, Meadows and many others very successfully and later on double back and bring contempt charges. I seriously doubt the House expected all the Trumpnazis to turn on him. DU worriers need to unclutch their pearls.

Good lawyers

neither shout nor speak fast. Trump has very poor representation but is obviously relying on a fixed jury.

'20 record voter turnout prompts GOP voter suppression


"GOP lawmakers seek tougher voting rules after record turnout.
The Brennan Center for Justice, a public policy institute, has already tallied more than 100 bills in 28 states meant to restrict voting access."

I'm starting to think the GOP has convinced themselves that their real enemy is democracy itself.
