Rick Bright testifies that we still “don’t have a master plan for (the COVID-19) response,” and McConnell concedes that, yes, the Obama administration did leave a detailed pandemic response plan, but that Trump just didn’t follow it

Two interesting things happened in the real world yesterday as fucking idiots with assault weapons gathered in Lansing, shutting down the capitol to speculate about the imaginary crimes committed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and fantasize about her assassination.

Sally Yates, called in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about Russian interference in American politics, is asked instead why she didn’t support Trump’s Muslim ban as acting Attorney General, the national security threat posed by Secretary Clinton’s email security, and who she thinks might have leaked news of Michael Flynn’s treason to the press.
