News Roundup: Mitch’s next federal shutdown; Giuliani’s deadly hoax; Abbott’s weirdest stunt yet

In the news today: Senate Republicans remain unified in their promise to cause another government shutdown while daring Democrats to do something about it. An internal Trump campaign document shows that top Trump “lawyers” knew full well that their election claims were lies; those claims would soon lead to a violent attempted insurrection inside the U.S. Capitol. Would-be Republican presidential candidates continue their descent into farce, with Florida’s governor appointing a hydroxychloroquine-supporting crank as surgeon general and Gregg Abbott … well, you have to see his latest stunt to believe it, and even then you might not believe it’s real. Yikes.
