Samantha Bee lambastes the treasure trove of damning text messages handed over to the House Select Committee by former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, which included more than 2,319 exchanges with various Trump sycophants and Republican lawmakers.

“Some of the most damning texts came on Election Day, like when Fox News host Sean Hannity promised Meadows he would push his listeners to get Trump elected,” she continues. When Meadows pressed Hannity to “stress every vote matters”, the host replied: “Yes sir. On it.”

“Yeah, ‘amen,‘” he chortled. “I don’t think you’re allowed to end your own book with ‘amen.’”

Dr. Mehmet Oz

(Reuters) - Senate candidate David McCormick has filed a lawsuit in a Pennsylvania court to compel counties to count undated mail-in ballots in his primary race against TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz, whom he trails by less than 1,000 votes.

The race between McCormick, a former hedge fund executive, and Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, for the Republican Party nomination is close enough to trigger an automatic recount under Pennsylvania state law.
