President Donald Trump is conducting an all-out assault on our democracy. There is no other way to look at this. The President lost the election and his legal team has failed to produce evidence of voter fraud. So now President Trump is attempting to convince state legislatures to overthrow the results. Voters made their decision, and yet he wants to force a different outcome. His attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is spewing the kinds of conspiracy theories that even conspiracy theorists shy away from. This is dangerous stuff. When some writers, such as Barton Gellman, writing in the Atlantic, predicted this would happen, too many people shrugged off the warning. [Source]
Less than a week after Rep. Liz Cheney was ousted from her leadership position for her opposition to Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 election, House Republicans are mired in yet another fight over Trump -- this time whether to move forward with a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
A few weeks shy of 54 years ago, as Arab armies massed on its borders vowing extermination, Israel launched the preemptive attack that set off the Six-Day War. In that sudden transformation from looming genocide to military triumph, American Jews rallied behind the Jewish state as never before -- with unprecedented cash donations and public demonstrations.
Lawyers for Rudy Giuliani -- who exhorted Trump supporters in Washington on the day of the Capitol riot to "have trial by combat" -- are now arguing that he wasn't literally advocating for an insurrection over the 2020 election results.
The Republican official who heads Maricopa County, Arizona's election department offered a forceful defense of his office on Monday after former President Donald Trump falsely claimed that the county's "entire Database" had been deleted.
