Liz Cheney blames GOP after Buffalo shooting, Supreme Court sides with Cruz over campaign funds, DeSantis signs a ban on “protesting” outside private residences, and Fauci will quit if Trump wins in 2024.
Less than 48 hours after the Buffalo, New York, supermarket shooting, representative Liz Cheney (R-WY), who was ousted from Republican leadership last year, is now putting the blame on the racially-motivated grocery store attack on House GOP leaders.
“The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism,” Cheney tweeted. “History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.”
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday in a case involving the use of campaign funds to repay personal campaign loans, finding a previous prohibition to be unconstitutional.
In a 6-3 decision, the ruling of the court removed a federal cap that limited candidates using political contributions after an election to repay personal loans made to their campaign.
Critics say the court’s ruling is a blow to campaign finance regulations, CNN reported.
Justice Elena Kagan wrote the dissenting opinion, criticizing the majority for a ruling. The law was meant to combat “a special danger of corruption” aimed at “political contributions that will line a candidate’s own pockets.”
Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday prohibiting “picketing and protesting” outside private residences, making it a second-degree misdemeanor to disturb or harass someone in their home intentionally.
Violators face fines of up to $500 and 60 days in jail if convicted, CBS reported.
The move comes following a wave of protests over abortion rights, many of which have taken place outside the communities and homes of Supreme Court justices and other individuals.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who also serves as director for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says if former President Donald Trump runs and wins the presidential election in 2024, he will resign and not work in the White House again, Newsmax reported.
“If you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think, you know, at best, you can say it wasn’t optimal,” Fauci said during an interview with CNN on Sunday. “History will speak for itself about that.”
