World United States: Trump Allies cited in the Survey of Capitol
The Supreme Court is drunk on its own power
A Court that used to prize careful deliberation now seems to care more about making big change quickly.Consider the Court’s recent decision upending five decades of abortion jurisprudence.

Elder, in his remarks to supporters, did not repeat any of his fraud claims and used the word defeat to describe the outcome.
The former Deputy Staff Head of the White House, Dan Scavino, and the former member of the Ministry of Defense, Kash Patel, were also cited in appearing and received the order to produce documents and to present themselves.

Kash Patel said he was "disappointed, but not surprised" that the committee issued an assignment to appear before applying for voluntary cooperation.
