What a night! Texas Democrats stage walk-out and block GOP voting bill. Update here:

Very proud to be a part of a new @washingtonpost  investigative series about the causes, cost and aftermath of the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol. Please read:

A horribly sad day for The Washington Post family. Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt has died.

The exodus from the floor came after Chris Turner, the House Democratic chairman, sent instructions to colleagues at 10:35 p.m. CDT: “Members, take your key and leave the chamber discreetly. Do not go to the gallery. Leave the building.”

Will Texas Democrats’ defeat of SB7 embolden Congress to pass national voting reforms? They say it should.

At least nine people have alleged sexual abuse when they were children active in People of Praise, the insular Christian group that Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett has deep roots in, via @bethreinhard 

The Maricopa County audit drags on, and @PostRoz  is the one to follow to keep up with the latest. This week: ballots and voting equipment are moved again.


FOLKS: Full audio published here. Please retweet far and wide.

SCOOP: Ga. SoS Raffensperger says Sen. Lindsey Graham pressured him to toss legal ballots.

Let's please remember that Georgia just HAND-COUNTED every paper ballot in the state, and it did not change the outcome that was counted by the Dominion machines.

This is false. We published the entirety of the call, from start to finish. There is no mention of it being a confidential settlement meeting. None.

I am repeating this because it is so insane. Wisconsin Republicans are trying to shut down a voter registration/ballot witnessing event in Madison tomorrow.

More Michigan news: Lawmakers are flying into DC to meet with President Trump tomorrow, at his request.

A former GOP lawmaker serving as a poll observer in NC was charged with assault this morning after he pushed a poll worker who was trying to prevent him from entering a polling place before it opened at 8 a.m. Partisan tensions are high.

Trump said today he has evidence of enough fraud to overturn his loss, but the judges won't hear the evidence. This is false. His lawyers including Guiliani have not alleged fraud in court. Why? Because there are far graver consequences to lying in court than lying on Fox.
