Journalists at Minnesota Protests Are Allegedly Being Harassed, Beaten, Wrongfully Arrested | Vanity Fair

In Brooklyn Center, Minnesota—the Minneapolis suburb where protests have erupted over the fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright—journalists on the ground have allegedly been harassed, assaulted, and wrongfully arrested by law enforcement. In a letter, lawyer Leita Walker, writing on behalf of more than 20 news organizations, laid out a series of alleged police attacks on journalists in the past week, including being sprayed with chemical irritants and beaten by law enforcement, the New York Times . View more

“All Bulls--t”: Trump Keeps the Big Lie Alive at Republican Donor Retreat

“All Bulls--t”: Trump Keeps the Big Lie Alive at Republican Donor Retreat

Addressing Republican National Committee donors and GOP officials at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday, former President Donald Trump more or less the same speech he’s been giving since losing the election nearly six months ago, as he continued to lie about the 2020 race and attack those perceived as not doing enough to help change its outcome. “I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the legislatures,” Trump said of his vice president, reprising the complaint that led his supporters to chant “Hang Mike Pence” as they stormed the Capitol. “I like him so much. I was so disappointed.”...

Fox, OAN Shoot Down Matt Gaetz’s Dream of Becoming a Right-Wing Media Star

Fox, OAN Shoot Down Matt Gaetz’s Dream of Becoming a Right-Wing Media Star

On Tuesday, before the New York Times that Rep. Matt Gaetz was being investigated by the Justice Department for —and potentially violating sex trafficking laws by paying for her travel with him—the Florida congressman had already made headlines, albeit for a comparatively benign scoop: Axios that Gaetz was thinking about leaving Congress early for a TV gig at Newsmax. A day later, Gaetz the Daily Beast that Newsmax wasn’t the only right-wing outlet he was talking to about post-congressional plans. “There is not a single conservative television station I haven’t had a passing conversation...

Corporations Are Facing Pressure to Reject Georgia Republicans’ Assault on Voting Rights

Corporations Are Facing Pressure to Reject Georgia Republicans’ Assault on Voting Rights

Activists are putting economic pressure on Georgia-based corporations and events to push back against the signed into law last week by Governor Brian Kemp, sweeping changes to election laws that come after President Joe Biden turned the state blue for the first time in nearly 30 years in November and the Democrats picked up two Senate seats in January. “We will speak with our wallets,” said Bishop Reginald Jackson of the AME Church’s Sixth Episcopal District, who on Thursday of Coca-Cola products until the Atlanta-based company makes good on pledges made the midst of last summer’s national...

Biden Unleashes on GOP’s Voter Suppression Crusade: “Sick” and “Un-American”

Biden Unleashes on GOP’s Voter Suppression Crusade: “Sick” and “Un-American”

During his first formal news conference on Thursday afternoon, President Joe Biden addressed issues such as immigration, filibuster reform and voting rights, calling out a Republican playing out across the country. “What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is,” Biden said of Republican-led attempts to restrict voting access through more than 250 bills, describing such efforts as a “sick” and “despicable.” “This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle. This is gigantic, what they’re trying to do,” he added.As expected, Biden opened the with a status update on the...

Biden’s Border Press Blackout Is Making His Immigration Problem Worse

Biden’s Border Press Blackout Is Making His Immigration Problem Worse

Journalists and lawmakers across the aisle are increasingly calling out the Biden administration for a lack of press access at border processing centers, a media blackout preventing reporters from covering what the White House has refused to call a crisis, despite firsthand accounts suggesting otherwise. Immigration detention facilities, overcrowded with unaccompanied children amid the surge of migrants at the southwestern border, are reportedly holding some minors longer than legal 72-hour limit, according to Senator Shelley Moore Capito, among the bipartisan group of senators who last...

Capitol Attack Investigators Aren’t Letting Trump Off the Hook Just Yet

Capitol Attack Investigators Aren’t Letting Trump Off the Hook Just Yet

The top prosecutor who had been heading the Justice Department’s investigation into the Capitol riot said the government has obtained evidence that would probably allow them to charge some defendants involved in the January 6 attack with seditious conspiracy, the rare Civil War-era charge of conspiring to overthrow the government. “I personally believe the evidence is trending toward that, and probably meets those elements,” Michael Sherwin, who until recently oversaw the criminal investigation—the largest in U.S. history—as acting U.S. attorney in Washington, said in a that aired Sunday,...

Adam Kinzinger’s Family Calls Him a “Disappointment to God” for Standing Up to Trump

Adam Kinzinger’s Family Calls Him a “Disappointment to God” for Standing Up to Trump

Among the harshest critics of Representative Adam Kinzinger’s public break with Donald Trump are his own family members, based on a handwritten that the Illinois Republican received from 11 relatives after calling for Trump’s removal over the Capitol riot last month. “Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God!” they wrote. “You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name!” Written by Kinzinger’s cousin Karen Otto and signed by several others, some of whom recently disowned Kinzinger, the New York Times , the two-page letter shows the extent to which disavowing Trump is perceived...

Without Trump Egging Them On, the MAGA Faithful Seem Bored By Impeachment

Without Trump Egging Them On, the MAGA Faithful Seem Bored By Impeachment

When Democrats kicked off Donald Trump’s impeachment trial on Tuesday with disturbing video of the MAGA mob storming the Capitol, the former president’s red-hatted followers likely weren’t tuning in. “We didn’t watch any of it,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson that night. “At this point, honestly, who cares?” he added. “Impeachment? The whole thing is ridiculous. They are literally impeaching a president who isn’t even the president anymore. They’re yelling at someone who’s already left the room.”Instead of fixating on Trump’s predicament, the MAGA movement appears to be focused elsewhere,...

Texas Republicans Are Taking Voter Suppression to the Next Level

Texas Republicans Are Taking Voter Suppression to the Next Level

Republicans in the Texas Legislature are attempting to dismantle provisions that helped bring about record turnout in urban areas last November through bills that would make Texas—which right before the presidential election was “the state with the most restrictive voting process”—an even more challenging place to cast a vote. Certain restrictions would only apply to counties with a population exceeding one million, according to the New York Times, and some aspects of the legislation directly target Harris County, the state’s biggest and a Democratic stronghold. The measures are among...
