One of the two alternate jurors who watched the entire murder trial of Derek Chauvin but did not participate in the deliberations said she was happy with the jury’s decision to convict the ex-Minneapolis cop for murdering George Floyd. “I felt he was guilty,” Lisa Christensen told CBS News in an interview that aired Thursday. “I just felt like the prosecution made a really good, strong argument,” she said, adding that the defense “over-promised” during opening statements and failed to convince her of Chauvin’s innocence. Christensen was one of two women who were selected as alternates in case ...
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.

Americans demand arrest of Michael Flynn after he 'jokes' about assassination in Washington, DC with his new gun
In May, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn joked about a coup to take over the American government. Now he's "joking" about assassination.
When being awarded over the weekend with a new rifle, Flynn told the audience in Yuba, California, "Maybe I'll find someone in Washington, D.C."
Michael Flynn is presented with a rifle as a gift in Yuba, CA, and says that now “maybe I’ll find somebody in Washi… https://t.co/rBd3JtlXvB— Ron Filipkowski (@Ron Filipkowski) 1627224576.0
"I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can't happen here?" someone asked Flynn from the QAnon conference audience as others cheered.
"No reason. I mean, it should happen," said Flynn.
It's entirely possible that Flynn simply has a homicidal sense of humor or finds murder and the violent overthrow of the American government amusing.
Either way, it sent many to question why Flynn hasn't gotten a visit by the FBI to question some of his statements.
The comments come just a week after two shootings in Washington, one outisde of National's Stadium and one in Logan Circle, less than a mile from the White House.
