    Jan. 6 committee interviews head of Trump’s Secret Service detail on day of Capitol attack
    The Jan. 6 select committee has interviewed the top Secret Service agent on then-President Donald Trump’s protective detail during the Capitol attack, according to three people familiar with the probe. Robert Engel was the special agent in charge on Jan. 6, 2021, meaning he was responsible for protecting the president from “socks on to socks off” — the whole work day. In that role, he rode from the White House to that day’s “Stop the Steal” rally with Trump in…

    Matthew McConaughey, in an emotional speech at the White House on Tuesday, called for lawmakers to act on bipartisan gun reforms — two weeks after a mass shooting at a school in the actor’s Texas hometown left 19 students and two teachers dead. “We need to invest in mental health care, we need safer schools, we need to restrain sensationalized media coverage, we need to restore our family values, we need to restore our American values and we need responsible…

Obama is speaking on Friday at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit in addition to holding a meet-up Saturday of more than 60 Obama Foundation leaders from across Europe.

    Abortion access could soon be decided by the states. Here’s what the next governors say.
    Washington won’t determine the landscape if the Supreme Court upends the current national order on abortion — it will be up to each state and their governors and legislators to set abortion policy within their borders. That has piled new policy pressure on this year’s most competitive gubernatorial races, where most Republican and Democratic candidates have polar opposite views on abortion and the winners will have broad latitude to set policy in states where their party also controls the legislature.…

    Former Trump administration official Peter Navarro called the FBI agents who arrested him “Nazis,” according to Justice Department documents filed Thursday in court accusing Navarro of repeatedly lying about the conditions of his arrest. FBI agents arrested Navarro at Reagan National Airport last Friday on a pair of misdemeanor charges that he acted in contempt of Congress by defying a subpoena from the Jan. 6 House select committee. Since his arrest, Navarro has been on a media tear, accusing the…

    He defied Trump and still survived a GOP primary
    This week in the GOP primary for South Dakota’s at-large district, Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) defeated a challenger from his right who claimed he wasn’t aligned closely enough with former President Donald Trump, even though Johnson agrees with Trump on many policies. Johnson’s vote for a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attacks and his support for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) to remain in House Leadership was cited as proof he is not an ally of the former president.…

    Biden ducks summit ‘debacle’ in Los Angeles. But it wasn’t smooth.
    LOS ANGELES — The Summit of the Americas was more Summit of some of the Americas. Biden administration officials grumbled about their Western Hemisphere truants. They monitored the Jan. 6 hearings on Capitol Hill and marveled at how little the national media tuned into events unfolding around the current president. They joked that expectations heading into the summit were so low that they probably would have to botch the proceedings to command much attention. Not that they did much to…

    Thousands of people rallied on the National Mall and across the United States on Saturday in a renewed push for gun control measures after recent deadly mass shootings from Uvalde, Texas, to Buffalo, New York, that activists say should compel Congress to act. “Enough is enough,” District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser told the second March for Our Lives rally in her city. “I speak as a mayor, a mom, and I speak for millions of Americans and America’s mayors…

    Mayors are wielding free transit to draw people back downtown. It’s not that easy.
    BOSTON — Michelle Wu once led a citywide revolution against public transit fare hikes. But what she really wanted was to make the system free. Within her first 24 hours as mayor last fall, Wu filed the paperwork to make it happen on three key bus routes — a big milestone in her quixotic quest to “free the T,” the colloquial name for Boston’s public transit system. Wu is following a long line of city leaders spanning from Kansas City,…

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday declined to issue a ruling on whether Republican-led states have the authority to defend a rule former President Donald Trump’s administration issued seeking to restrict immigration benefits for individuals deemed likely to seek government aid. The justices heard arguments in February on whether Republican-led states had the right to defend the legality of Trump’s “public charge” rule after President Joe Biden’s administration abandoned the policy and declined to argue in favor of it. However, in…

    Joseph Biggs, a member of the Proud Boys charged with seditious conspiracy for his role in the breach of the Capitol last year, is urging a federal judge to relocate his trial to South Florida after becoming a main character in the first hearing of the Jan. 6 select committee. In a seven-page filing late Tuesday, Biggs contended that “media-attentive” Washingtonians will accept the select committee’s presentation about Biggs, which cast him as a central figure in igniting the breach.…

    Matthew McConaughey is not leaving his emotional pleas for tighter gun laws up to chance and the appeal of his celebrity. He’s turning to K Street too. Following a spate of recent mass shootings including the massacre last month in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas, that killed 19 schoolchildren and two teachers, the award-winning actor has retained a team of lobbyists at D.C. firm Avisa Partners to represent him in the nation’s capital. The registration, filed on Wednesday, is under…

    He’s one of the most powerful gun lobbyists in D.C. And you’ve never heard of him.
    Not long after he was nominated to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, David Chipman received a call from a longtime associate: firearms attorney and lobbyist Mark Barnes. Chipman assumed Barnes was in search of intel on whether he would be an industry-friendly ATF leader, so he decided against ringing the lobbyist back. He now speculates whether that failure to connect cost him the job. “If I wanted to be the director, I needed to call him…
