HOT DAMN today was a good day for justice. Superseding Barrack indictment, Steve Wynn sued to register as a foreign agent for China, DoJ asking for 1/6 committee transcripts. Anything else you want to throw at us today, @TheJusticeDept? #Justice
US Treasury Secretary Janey Yellen said the US Supreme Court's likely reversal of Roe v. Wade will lead to American women losing decades of economic progress.

The Senate just confirmed Lisa Cook to the Federal Reserve Board!
She serves on @ChicagoFed's advisory boards. She’s an Economics Professor at Michigan State. She’s served on @WhiteHouseCEA.

West Michigan values of integrity, decency, and care for the common good won tonight. The people of the 74th District have spoken, and I hear you. We are united in fundamental ways, and I will take our values and concerns to the Capitol to affect positive change. Thank you!
Trump's actual endorsements (not the ones he's doing at the last minute just to take credit) are faring far worse. In Georgia, Kemp is ahead of Trump's candidate Perdue by 27 points in the Republican primary. But the media mostly ignores it, because it doesn't fit the narrative.
