What a way to end the first week of the new year! Today marks the second anniversary of the Trump-led attack on the capitol as insurrectionists attempted to overturn the results of a fair and free 2020 election. It’s been a long, frustrating couple of years, usually with the public being kept in the dark about how the insurrectionist’s prosecutions are going… with one major exception.
Marcy Wheeler is an independent journalist who deals with this kind of shit… She covers national security, government malfeasance and so much more on her own site at emptywheel.net. She’s been joining me regularly to keep us up to speed on all of the investigations and everything else happening in this shit show that some on the right are trying to undermine.
So Marcy joins me for a great discussion on this, the second anniversary of the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol, and on the fourth day of stalemate in the House of Representatives, as Kevin McCarthy keeps getting humiliated in his quest to be speaker.
But as I’m getting ready for today’s show, they’ve just finished voting… for the 13th time. And for the 13th time, Kevin McCarthy still couldn’t garner enough votes to win. And now they’re taking another vote on adjourning….
Like I said up top, what a way to end the first week of the new year….
