Nina Totenberg reports that (1) the Chief Justice asked his colleagues to mask up out of respect for Sotomayor’s health concerns, (2) only Gorsuch refused, and (3) his refusal forced Sotomayor to participate in arguments and conference remotely. npr.org/2022/01/18/107342837…

I have a hunch that Giuliani, Ellis, Powell, and Epshteyn will refuse to cooperate and will file lawsuits claiming that the committee is illegitimate and their First Amendment rights are being trampled. Just a wild guess.

The Select Committee issued subpoenas to Rudolph Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Boris Epshteyn. The four individuals advanced unsupported theories about election fraud, pushed efforts to overturn election results, or were in direct contact with the former President.

“Electing Democratic pro-choice women is not possible without free and fair elections. Protecting the right to choose is not possible without access to the ballot box.” Correct on both points.
Wow, EMILY's List says that it will be "unable to endorse" Kyrsten Sinema moving forward because of her position on voting rights.

Now, in Florida, a “special police force to oversee state elections.” Where in history have we seen that before?

I TOLD YOU GUYS this is what they would end up doing!!! Cutting deals, going easy on Republicans so that Republicans won't "hurt" them when/if they get the majority in the mid-terms.

If this is right, 4 separate rail crossings will pump Russian military to Belarus for 2-3 days. Short timeframe is interesting.
A page on Telegram run by Belarusian Railway Workers claims that Russian Military Forces have begun to transfer military equipment into Belarus via four crossings: Osinovka, Zakopytya, Shesterovka, and Ezerishche. No 'reverse movement' dates scheduled, as of now.

If these two voting rights bills fail, our democracy will suffer and may never recover. Republicans in the states are working every single day to undermine free and fair elections. The time is now for Democrats to save democracy. democracydocket.com/news/the…
