‘Relentless attack on the truth’: Adam Schiff says he caught Kevin McCarthy in a blatant lie rawstory.com/kevin-mccarthy…
"Schiff said that moral corruption flows down from the former president and has infected much of the Republican Party."
"We cannot have a leadership in Congress that has no commitment to the truth, that shares Donald Trump's willingness to falsify and lie about everything and so this, too, is what puts us in peril," he said.
"I think of all the damage that Donald Trump did to our democracy, the most corrosive was this relentless attack on the truth."

CNN's Erin Burnett lays out damning Capitol riot timeline showing Trump's complicity rawstory.com/trump-capitol-…
"2:23 p.m., this is on television," said Burnett, showing CNN coverage of protesters breaching the Capitol. "At 2:24, Trump tweeted about the man presiding over the Senate floor that time, his vice president.
'Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done, giving states a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent inaccurate ones. USA demands the truth.' The record leaves no question of whose side Trump was on in the deadly riot."

As DeJoy readies new assault on Postal Service, pressure grows for Biden to 'clean house' rawstory.com/louis-dejoy/
"We want a Board of Governors that understands fundamentally this is not called the United States Postal Business. It's not a profit-making business. It's here to serve the people."
—Mark Dimondstein, American Postal Workers Union
Meanwhile, the Post noted, "congressional Democrats are pressing President Biden to install new board members, creating a majority bloc that could oust DeJoy, a Trump loyalist whose aggressive cost-cutting over the summer has been singled out for much of the performance decline."

The courts could hold Trump accountable if Republican senators refuse: legal expert rawstory.com/could-courts-h…
Trump didn't have to march with the crowd to do something illegal. Federal law says any person who "counsels, commands, (or) induces" anyone to commit a crime is also guilty. That means Trump. So, what happens to the former president after his Republican allies let him go?
"Once Trump's senate fraternity brothers and sorority sisters give him a pass, the real question is whether the Department of Justice will make good on its name by conducting a full investigation into the many activities of Trump that appear criminal," wrote Stern.
