The Big Lie. @GOPLeader @HawleyMO @tedcruz are responsible for inciting the attack on the US Capitol. @ProjectLincoln rejects calls to unify and reconcile with the fascists, rascists and autocrats who took over the Capitol, tore down the American flag and raised the MAGA over
Vice presidential humor: In a @VanderbiltU lecture with @JMeacham, @algore notes Trump's claim that @VP Mike Pence could overturn the Electoral College results. "If a vice president could do that, I would have been tempted to use that power 20 years ago," he jokes.
The conversation series is part of the newly-announced Vanderbilt Project on Unity and American Democracy, which aims to strengthen the nation’s democratic institutions by advancing evidence-based research into the national discourse on unity.
Based on today’s reporting, statements from lawmakers in both parties and comments from law enforcement, it really doesn’t seem like the public fully knows what happened inside the capitol on January 6th.
Replying to @amyewalter: This is correct. And, remember, Dems have control of Congress. There will be lots and lots of hearings for the next months.…

Josh Hawley has reaped the benefits of every advantage, connection, and privilege America has to offer. Now he’s closing the door behind him.
@BeschlossDC does not mince words on a new Battleground with @davidplouffe and @SteveSchmidtSES. Listen now:
Attn JPMorgan and Goldman: @SenatorCardin tells me the decision by big banks to pause campaign contributions to all Republicans and Democrats "doesn't make any sense."
