Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) announced Sunday that he has COVID-19 for a second time.
The announcement from on Facebook in which he thanked well-wishers for their outpouring of love and kindness.
"I keep my family's private business very quiet, because of the evil in the world, yet we are uplifted by the love of God's children, and quiet privacy does not mean secrecy, so, here's the update," he wrote. "I have COVID, Becca has COVID, my son has COID. Becca and I had COVID before, early on, in January 2020, before the world really knew what it was. So, this is our second experience with the CCP biological attack weaponized virus...and this episode is far more challenging. It has required all of my devoted energy."
Higgins announced in May that he would never wear a mask because it wasn't helping, and he believed it was trapping bacteria somehow.
"Can you smell through that mask?" said Higgins. "Then you're not stopping any sort of a virus. It's part of the dehumanization of the children of God. You're participating in it by wearing a mask."
"What you're wearing is a bacteria trap; it's not helping your health or anybody else's," Higgins added.
Higgins is also the same member of Congress who claimed that his wife has the gift of "premonition." So, it's unclear if she prognosticated that the family would get COVID-19.
Higgins hasn't announced whether or not he is vaccinated, but many Republicans in the caucus aren't.

Ted Cruz flattened for whining the 1/6 committee isn't bipartisan after voting against a bipartisan commission
Texas Republican Ted Cruz couldn't help himself. On Sunday, the senator lashed out at Democrats without even a hint of irony. According to Cruz, the Jan. 6 committee isn't to his liking because it involves Republicans who supported impeaching Donald Trump for inciting a riot that led to an attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol.
Cruz had an opportunity to vote for a bipartisan commission where Republicans could appoint whoever they wanted and as many Republicans as they wanted. He voted against it progressing, leading Pelosi no other choice but to appoint Republicans who aren't to Donald Trump's liking.

Republicans intend to spend the majority of their time trashing the bipartisan committee because a former president, with no power, commands it for his own defense.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) attacked an Air Force Lt. Colonel on Sunday, telling him that he's a "traitor."
She made the comment after Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) agreed to join the Jan. 6 special select committee as one of the Republicans willing to examine the attack on the U.S. Capitol in a bipartisan way. Greene didn't feel that Kinzinger was right for the job because he already voted to impeach Trump for the Jan. 6 attack.
Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) attempted to put two members on the committee who are the biggest firebrands in the caucus. One of the two may also have been involved in the attack.
Greene is independently wealthy from her father's corporation, though it's unclear if she's ever had any real role in the business. She's never served in the American military, much less gone to war. Kinzinger served in both Iraq and Afghanistan after the attacks on the Twin Towers on 9/11. Greene questioned whether the Pentagon was even hit on Sept. 11, 2001.
