Weekend report: What's happening?
U.S. Supreme Court won't fast-track Trump immunity claim. Wisconsin Supremes end gerrymandered maps. RNC chair and Trump caught on audio trying to shut down election certification.
There’s a lot of handwringing, but really, it’s not a shock to see the U.S. Supreme Court refuse special prosecutor Jack Smith’s motion for expedited review of Donald Trump’s immunity claim in the January 6th coup case. Now it goes back to the DC court of appeals, where Smith wisely had it on an expedited track already, and the Supremes will have to deal with it in a matter of weeks.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court brought some justice, thankfully, in throwing out the state’s gerrymandered legislative maps, and it shows why elections matter.
And now Ronna McDaniel, the RNC chair, is in hot water—could even face charges or certainly be called as a witness—after the Detroit News obtained recordings in which she and Donald Trump told Wayne County election officials not to certify the 2020 election.
