Donald Trump went Monday to the hard-right Liberty University, reaching out to voters in this bastion of the religious right and to show his own dedication to Christianity — even if he doesn’t quite know the names of books in the Bible.

“And we’re going to protect Christianity. And I can say that — I don’t have to be politically correct — we’re going to protect it,” The Donald proclaimed. “And I asked Jerry (University chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr.), and I asked some of the folks, because I hear this is your major theme right here, but Two Corinthians — Two Corinthians 3:17, that’s the whole ballgame. ‘Where the spirit of The Lord is, there is liberty.’ And here there is Liberty College – Liberty University.”

Note: The book of the New Testament that Trump referenced here, often written as “2 Corinthians,” is in fact pronounced “Second Corinthians,” from its actual formal title, “Second Epistle to the Corinthians.”

Trump continued, undeterred: “But it is so true, when you think. And that’s really — is that the one? Is that the one you like? I think that’s the one you like, ’cause I loved it!”

On Monday, Rep. Bennie Thompson made it clear that the House Select Committee investigating events related to the January 6 insurgency could begin issuing subpoenas within the next few days. Back on August 25, the committee sent a request for documents to a long list of recipients. While some recipients have turned over the requested information, a large number have not. As CNN reports, Thompson will skip right past the farce of sending any of these people or groups reminders or asking them politely to show up at the House. Instead, the committee will move straight to the subpoena phase and let the courts tell them how much executive privilege does not apply to this case.
