David Waldman delivers our Tuesday KITM and invited Joan McCarter too!
Former guy White House Counsel Don McGahn has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week. McGahn used to ignore subpoenas, and who knows how much the committee will get out of him, but unfortunately it won’t be televised live.
Teacher Brian Beute ran against Matt Gaetz’ pimp, Joel Greenburg, for tax collector, not pimp, or any of Greenburg’s other specialties. Beute is certain Greenburg couldn’t have crimed like he did if there wasn’t an efficient criming system already in place. Joel Greenburg’s only mistake was that he was just too ambitiously corrupt for his position.
Joan warns that time is running out for Joe Biden’s “bipartisan” infrastructure efforts, before the “infrastructure week” jokes begin again. The House Republicans did show up with a token plan, but the Senate isn’t even bothering. Republicans don’t need to work when they have Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to do the heavy lifting. Manchin has his hands full, obstructing virtually all the bills going through. Mitch McConnell can’t rely on Sinema and Manchin to stop a Jan. 6 commission, so he will have to have Susan Collins do it.
