On the eve of the first scheduled meeting of the House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 riot, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy made a last-ditch effort to seat the Republicans who House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected from the committee.
He kissed up to Trump only for the former president to endorse his rival.

The Justice Department's filing could indicate it may not defend former President Donald Trump, who has also been sued by Swalwell for allegedly conspiring to incite the attack.
Many court watchers are still paying attention only to how liberal or conservative the justices are. But there’s another factor at work.
