    How the Jan. 6 panel’s star witness drew a roadmap for Trump’s culpability
    The Jan. 6 select committee made a big bet on Cassidy Hutchinson. She delivered on Tuesday — and then some. With what may prove the most damning testimony about a sitting president’s actions in American history, the former right hand of ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows stitched together every element of the panel’s case against Donald Trump. The Capitol riot committee has painted the former president’s potential criminal culpability for his effort to overturn the election in stark…

    When it comes to protecting abortion rights, Democrats want Joe Biden to get aggressive. And fast. Frustration is building among liberals over what some see as a slow executive response from the president, despite weeks to prepare following POLITICO’s publication of a draft majority opinion forecasting the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. White House officials contend that things are more complicated than they seem, but that’s doing little to turn down the temperature in the party. “He made…

    Jan. 6 committee announces surprise Tuesday hearing
    The Jan. 6 select committee, in a surprise announcement with about 24 hours’ notice, scheduled a Tuesday hearing “to present recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony.” It was not immediately clear whom the panel was calling to testify, nor what new evidence was being presented. But the sudden schedule change intensified intrigue in Washington, where the panel has mounted a carefully choreographed set of hearings about former President Donald Trump’s effort to subvert the 2020 election. The shift was…

    The House on Friday easily cleared a bipartisan gun safety package, sending Congress’ first major response to nearly three decades of mass shootings to President Joe Biden’s desk. While the bill’s provisions fell short of most Democrats’ hopes, the vast majority of House Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would restrict Second Amendment rights. The final vote was 234-193. Fourteen Republicans voted for the legislation. The bill, which Biden is expected to sign into law imminently, includes narrow restrictions on…

    This fall’s midterm landscape shook from a tectonic realignment on Friday after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade’s abortion-rights precedent, giving Democrats a third-rail social issue as they fight to keep their slim majorities. Senate Democrats clamored to connect the decision to their narrow hold on the chamber, which allows them to confirm new Supreme Court justices with a simple majority vote. Control of future judicial confirmations now may be the biggest prize at stake in the November…

    ‘Unwilling to accept defeat’: How Sinema and Murphy clinched guns deal for Dems
    In a Washington run by Baby Boomers and octogenarians, it took two 40-something Democrats with a yin-and-yang approach to get a gun safety deal done. Chris Murphy had developed self-described “pessimism” in his decadelong quest to rein in gun violence. That’s where Kyrsten Sinema came in, pushing her more liberal friend along. Their partnership proved exactly what Democrats needed to break through on gun safety after nearly 30 years of attempts. They’re close enough for the triathlete Sinema to give…

    Dems weigh new plan to defuse Obamacare subsidy bomb
    Democrats are eyeing a last-ditch plan to avert a spike in health care costs that could further damage their midterm prospects. But, per usual, it all hinges on winning over Joe Manchin. A proposal being weighed by congressional Democrats and party advisers in recent weeks aims to temporarily extend the enhanced Obamacare subsidies that were part of the financial aid package President Joe Biden signed into law last March, according to three people familiar with the discussions. Those subsidies are…

    Rep. Rodney Davis wants to lead House Republicans next year in undercutting the Jan. 6 select committee. If Donald Trump doesn’t shove him out of office first. Davis is in line to lead the House Administration Committee in January if Republicans take the House, as expected, and wants to use the panel to counter the messaging of the Democratic-led committee investigating the Capitol attack. But before he can grab the “investigate the investigators” baton, he has to beat a Trump-backed…

    Senate clears major hurdle toward passing gun safety bill
    The Senate on Thursday took a critical step on the bipartisan gun safety legislation, clearing the way for a passage vote no later than the end of the week. In a 65-34 vote, 15 Republicans joined all Senate Democrats in moving forward. Ahead of the vote, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate could pass the final bill as soon as Thursday with GOP cooperation. However, if any one of the 100 senators objects, final passage could occur as late…

    Democrats are calling the Senate’s bipartisan gun safety bill a first step to combat gun violence. The reality is, the second step isn’t coming anytime soon. The chamber is on the cusp of passing Congress’ most significant gun safety legislation in nearly 30 years. And even as Democrats hail that progress, they’ve described the package as a compromise that brings them closer to broader gun policy goals, such as expanding background checks and banning assault weapons. But it took nearly…

    Gas tax holiday is Biden’s latest price-spike pothole with Hill Dems
    President Joe Biden’s gas tax holiday is too little, too late for vulnerable Democrats running for reelection this fall. Four months after incumbents in tough races pressed Biden for a gas tax reprieve to quell consumer anger over high prices, he tried to signal he’s listening by proposing a three-month suspension of the 18.4-cent per gallon fuel levy on Wednesday. Yet those same Democrats who once asked the president for help want a lot more. Biden’s break-glass moment on gas…

The positive PCR test result came during routine testing in Washington, according to the statement. “Most importantly, I am grateful to be vaccinated and boosted,” Jeffries said, encouraging others to continue to seek vaccinations.

    House GOP scorns bipartisan Senate guns deal
    A bipartisan guns deal endorsed by Mitch McConnell is landing with a thud among most House Republicans. Roughly a third of the Senate Republican conference helped advance the package on Tuesday night. But that means little in the House, where even supporters are warning they don’t expect anywhere near the same ratio of GOP votes once the bill crosses the Capitol. House GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) will whip Republicans to vote against the Senate agreement, a leadership aide told…

    Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the Jan. 6 select committee, said Wednesday that significant new streams of evidence have necessitated a change to the panel’s hearing schedule, including the potential for additional hearings. After the committee’s Thursday hearing — which will focus on former President Donald Trump’s effort to deploy the Justice Department to help overturn the 2020 presidential election — House investigators will resume hearings in July, Thompson said. Thompson (D-Miss.) cited newly received footage from documentarian Alex Holder,…

    John Cornyn knew he’d face blowback at his home state’s GOP convention for his bipartisan work on gun safety. He showed up anyway. Faced with a chorus of boos and a rebuke from the Texas GOP over the weekend, Cornyn got a taste of what the reaction could be on the right for Republicans who vote for the Senate’s bill designed to curb mass shootings in America. What’s more, on Monday evening the NRA announced opposition to the package crafted…

    In the end, just a handful of people decisively thwarted former President Donald Trump’s maneuvering to subvert the 2020 election. The pivotal pushback by a core few players willing to defy Trump is emerging as a central theme of the Jan. 6 select committee’s case in its first four public hearings — without those people, the panel clearly believes, the former president would have achieved his goal of overturning Joe Biden’s victory. Committee members have unspooled a case that Trump…
