Republicans Announce Investigation into Joe Biden, Allege He Was Directly ‘Involved’ with Hunter’s Dealings

D.C. Jail Treatment of Capitol Riot Defendants Draws Bipartisan Outrage

A smaller group of inmates may have it even worse: those awaiting trial for alleged crimes in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. They’ve been placed in “restrictive housing,” a maximum-security designation.
The plight of nearby inmates has received surprisingly little attention on Capitol Hill for the better part of a year, since the District of Columbia Department of Corrections issued its “medical stay-in-place” policies for COVID-19 mitigation.Read More
