Running for governor as a disciple of Donald Trump, Janice McGeachin has done almost everything short of surgically attach herself to the former president. It’s not just that Trump is omnipresent in her advertising, or that McGeachin mimics his
The executive summary of the House Jan. 6 committee’s report documents how former President Donald Trump was repeatedly warned by those closest to him — Cabinet members, campaign officials and even family members — that claims he had lost his reelection due to fraud were false.

Donald Trump pledged to fix US infrastructure as president. He vowed to take on China and bulk up American manufacturing.

Senator Raphael Warnock’s victory in Georgia officially bookended perhaps the most topsy-turvy midterm election cycle of my lifetime.

The January 6 House of Representatives Committee led by the Democrats which investigated the mob in Washington that attacked the Capitol, which housed the House of Representatives and the Senate, to pressurise then Vice President Mike Spence not to sign the certification that showed Joe Biden as the winner came to the predictable
“Thank you for your service.” Most Americans use the phrase when they see a member of the military at the airport or in the supermarket.
