From Last Week Tonight with John Oliver:
It really is amazing how stupid Sean Hannity is.
ps- I love Last Week Tonight. It is the heir in spirit and tone to Jon Stewart's beloved Daily Show. His deep dives are essential viewing.
WASHINGTON The United States attorney general, Merrick Garland, is making an unannounced trip to Ukraine on Tuesday to discuss the prosecution of Russians for war crimes, according to his spokesman.
Mr. Garland plans to meet with Ukraines prosecutor general, Iryna Venediktova, to discuss U.S. and international efforts to help Ukraine identify, apprehend and prosecute those individuals involved in war crimes and other atrocities in Ukraine, the spokesman, Anthony D. Coley, said in an email.
The meeting is expected to last about an hour, and the two are expected to discuss technical, forensic and legal support that Mr. Garlands department might be able to provide prosecutors in Ukraine, department officials said.
Well, I'm glad he has so much free time on his hands.
Rep. Jim Clyburn on CNN: "People are concerned that the Department of Justice may have too many carryovers from the last administration and [is] not moving in order to do what's needed to protect this democracy."
Today would be a good day to indict Donald John Trump
They werent doing things against their will because of blackmail.
Thats too convenient. It assumes they are decent people being coerced to go along with evil.
They are evil people who wanted the coup to succeed.
Democrats may well never win again because the Republicans will simply change the votes.
The potential for far-right Republicans to reshape the election systems of major battleground states is growing much closer to reality.
As the halfway point nears of a midterm year that is vastly friendlier to Republicans, the partys voters have nominated dozens of candidates for offices with power over the administration and certification of elections who have spread falsehoods about the 2020 presidential contest and sowed distrust in American democracy.
The only way to restore trust, these candidates say, is by electing them.

If you are not terrified you should be.
GOTV is not the issue.
Counting the fucking votes is.
This documentary is amazing. Perfect 100 on Rotten Tomatoes.
It is frightening. And inspiring.
It is so upsetting to me that we are going backwards on abortion access.
What these heroes did in Chicago in the early 1970s should be heralded by everyone.
If youve seen it what did you think?
If you havent seen it you should. Its so well done.
So far he has lost every appeal.
But also so far HE HAS NOT ACTUALLY TESTIFIED.
WHEN THE FUCK WILL THAT HAPPEN?
Trump to appeal ruling that requires him to testify in New York investigation
The former president filed papers U.S. District Court in Albany in response to a ruling Friday by Judge Brenda K. Sannes, who dismissed Trump's effort to fight a subpoena issued by New York attorney general Letitia James, reported Insider.
The notice of appeal shows Trump plans to ask the federal appeals court to reverse the judge's decision.
James argued that her office has uncovered "substantial" evidence of financial wrongdoing and self-serving falsehoods in a decade's worth of Trump business filings.
Should We Be Forced to See Exactly What an AR-15 Does to a 10-Year-Old?
Photographic images can bring us close to the experience of suffering and, in particular, to the physical torment that violence creates in ways that words do not. What does the destruction of a human being, of a human body frail and vulnerable (all human bodies are frail and vulnerable) look like? What can we know of anothers suffering? Is such knowledge forbidden or, alternately, necessary? And if we obtain it, what then?
These are questions that are being raised in the wake of last weeks mass shooting of 19 children and two adults in Uvalde, Texas, which has plunged much of the country into an abyss of sorrow, rage and despair. On social media and in the press, some, including the former homeland security chief Jeh Johnson, have suggested that photographs of the slaughtered children, whose faces and bodies were apparently mutilated beyond recognition, be released to the public in hopes of garnering support for gun control legislation.
