"I know her. I don't think she's lying." Former Trump acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney predicts that before the Jan. 6 hearings are over, we'll hear testimony from other Trump figures, including Mark Meadows, following Cassidy Hutchinson's extraordinary testimony today.

As if Hutchinson's testimony wasn't damning enough, the hearing closes with @RepLizCheney offering evidence (and alluding to additional evidence) of attempted witness intimidation.

After the December 2020 @AP story of Barr saying there is no evidence of election fraud, Hutchinson testified that she saw "ketchup dripping down the wall," after Trump had thrown "his lunch at the wall" during a meeting with his AG.

This is an excellent - and accurate - thread. One thing that needs to come out of this last week is clear: if it does not convince the left that the courts are not the answer, and that we need to work to implement change at every level of government, nothing will.
This past week has seen a repudiation of the court-based theory of change that has defined legal liberalism for several decades in the US: a theory that elite lawyers will always be able to use elite reasoning to persuade elite judges not to let things get out of hand.

Majority: "Mr. Kennedy prayed during a period when school employees were free to speak with a friend, call for a reservation at a restaurant, check email, or attend to other personal matters. He offered his prayers quietly while his students were otherwise occupied." Dissent:

Thank you so much for saying this. People who make jokes about vasectomies have no fucking idea about how they were used as eugenics and I am disgusted when I see liberals make these jokes.
I am a historian of vasectomy who is going to lose her shit if she sees one more feminists suggest "mandatory vasectomies" for men, that vasectomies prevent abortion, or that vasectomies are any kind of solution to this situation. Strap in, folks. 🧵

A lot of people with disability rights activists I know have said people are withholding lawsuits right now because they don't want the Supreme Court to gut the ADA.

Seeing more calls today to delete your period-tracking apps. But experts say that if you look at how states have already brought evidence in abortion-related cases, the *much* bigger concern is unsecured, unencrypted communications & stored search history. nbcnews.com/tech/security/ab…

where we're at in America in 2022: the president just had to state publicly that he supports the right of women to travel across state lines

We’re outraged by the Supreme Court’s decision issued today. We have the right to make decisions about our lives and bodies, including getting an abortion. We cannot wait for a future Supreme Court to reverse this – Congress must act to protect our rights. aapd.com/wp-content/uploads/…

Here's some praise for Dinesh D'Souza's "2000 Mules" from the guy Trump wanted to appoint to put the Justice Department's imprimatur on his election fraud lies so he could do a coup.
