News Roundup: Criminal contempt, an untrustworthy Supreme Court, and goodbye voting rights

Let’s pretend it’s a mugshot

In the news today: The House Rules Committee voted to approve a contempt of Congress referral against Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon, with the full House set to vote on it on Thursday. And ahead of that, Republicans were lining up to defend Bannon. Meanwhile the orange jackass is being investigated for more criming. In news sure to please Chief Justice John Roberts, more than half of all Americans don’t trust the Supreme Court. In a bit of good news, the White House is planning a roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines for children. In a large chunk of awful news, the Senate failed to move the voting rights bill after every Republican voted against cloture, as Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema patted themselves on the back for their bipartisan dreams.
