'Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the ousted speaker, announces he's leaving Congress'


'WASHINGTON — Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who this fall became the first speaker to be ousted from power in the middle of a congressional term, said Wednesday he will resign from office at the end of this month.

His exit is a blow to his successor, Speaker Mike Johnson, and House Republicans, further cutting the already narrow GOP majority and making passing legislation in 2024 even more challenging.'

My words: Very interesting, indeed.

'Liz Cheney says she's considering a third-party presidential bid'


'Former GOP Rep. Liz Cheney is mulling a third-party run for president and will decide in the next few months, she said in interviews published Tuesday while promoting her new book.

“I think that the situation that we’re in is so grave, and the politics of the moment require independents and Republicans and Democrats coming together in a way that can help form a new coalition, so that may well be a third-party option,” Cheney told USA TODAY.'

My words: Well, this came one cycle sooner than I thought it would. Any thoughts on this, people?

“Charles McGonigal, by his own admission, betrayed his oath and actively concealed his illicit work at the bidding of a sanctioned Russian oligarch,” said Assistant Attorney General Matthew G.
