Bannon referred for criminal contempt, voting rights in danger, more COVID-19 news


In the news today: The House voted 229-202—with nine Republicans voting yes—to refer Steve Bannon to the Department of Justice to face criminal contempt charges for defying a congressional subpoena. Meanwhile, the rest of the Republicans seem to be getting very uncomfortable as the investigation continues. Democrats are spending a lot of time talking about the right to vote, but they know nuking the filibuster is the only way to do it. Gov. Ron Death DeSantis continues his efforts to kill Floridians, as a new and potentially more deadly variant emerges.
