July date for Steve Bannon's contempt of Congress trial

Doesn't mean the 1/6 hearings are doomed. House has reams of testimony and video. It can proceed w/o Bannon, Meadows and many others very successfully and later on double back and bring contempt charges. I seriously doubt the House expected all the Trumpnazis to turn on him. DU worriers need to unclutch their pearls.

2. Focus here

"
Mike Pence staffer who Trump banned from the White House is cooperating with January 6 committee

The congressional panel looking into the January 6 insurrection is getting "significant cooperation from Team Pence," a source told CNN on Monday, with the former vice president's ex-chief of staff reportedly complying with the committee's investigation.

Marc Short, the Pence aide, could provide key testimony concerning both the lead-up to the attack on the US Capitol and events on January 6 itself to the committee, which is led by Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, and Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican.

As Insider previously reported, Short was critical of the legally dubious effort, spearheaded by right-wing attorney John Eastman, to have Pence block the certification of President Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election.

One constitutional law expert described the plan as a "proposed coup cloaked in legal language." Short himself called it "boneheaded analysis."

3. It is an interesting and postive development.However history would suggest

that getting over confident that the GOP will be held accountable for their misdeeds is a losing bet.
