Weekly Roundup: Texting to Stop a Coup

Brad and Dan begin by discussing the text messages to Mark Meadows revealed by the J6 Select Committee. They dig into why this confirms all the worries we had about the plot to overthrow the election. They also underscore the callousness of the then Commander in Chief who ignored the pleas of fellow citizens to stop an attempted coup in progress.

Brad then does a deep dive into Kyrsten Sinema in order to understand her opposition to abolishing the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation.

The episode finishes with a spotlight on the words of Rafael Warnock, who asked this week why the Senate was willing to change the rules for the economy, but not for democracy.
