News Roundup: Clark may face criminal contempt charges; GOP retools as party of the Big Lie


Jeffrey Clark is accused of using the Department of Justice as weapon to boost fake Republican election conspiracies—an effort that resulted in a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol

In the news today: Trump ally Jeffrey Clark may be the latest to face criminal charges for defying a House subpoena. Then a Department of Justice official, Clark allegedly sought to boost Trump’s claims of “election fraud” despite those claims being entirely fictional; now that the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection has come calling, Clark is clamming up. Rep. Lauren Boebert may or may not have intended an “apology” when she called Rep. Ilhan Omar following yet another incident in which Boebert falsely slandered Omar, who is Mulsim, as a supposed potential terrorist, but the call unraveled quickly when Boebert couldn’t muster that actual apology.

Across the country, Republicans continue to purge those who proved unwilling to go along with Trump’s traitorous lie. And the omicron variant of COVID-19 is now upon us, thanks to global failure to control the variants leading up to it—but what will it mean?
