TODAY’S TOP READS

It’s a slow news day as we hit the halfway point of this holiday weekend, but a good one to catch up on three big summer storylines that will continue to reverberate long after Independence Day: the rise of Rep. LIZ CHENEY (R-Wyo.), the Supreme Court’s historic term and Russia’s occupation of eastern Ukraine:

1. CHENEY — You would expect last week to have been dominated by President JOE BIDEN. The Supreme Court set back the liberal policy agenda by decades — on abortion, gun control, the separation of church and state and climate change — while the Jan. 6 committee presented its most compelling evidence that DONALD TRUMP may be criminally responsible for the attack on the Capitol.

At the end of the week, the court said it would take up a gerrymandering case from North Carolina that voting rights advocates fear could completely upend election laws in America by endorsing a once-fringe legal doctrine known as the independent state legislature theory (ISLT).

But it was Cheney rather than Biden who emerged as the face of the opposition to Trumpism. She pushed the Jan. 6 committee to hold an extra hearing featuring its blockbuster witness on Tuesday in Washington, flew to Southern California to speak at the Reagan Library to condemn Trump’s grip on the GOP on Wednesday, was back in Wyoming for a primary debate on Thursday, and today is on ABC’s “This Week” for her first interview since the hearings started.

WSJ’s Natalie Andrews captures how it’s all playing“,”link”:{“target”:”NEW”,”attributes”:[],”url”:”https://www.wsj.com/articles/liz-cheney-goes-all-in-on-jan-6-probe-as-gop-primary-looms-11656766802″,”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe706c0004″,”_type”:”33ac701a-72c1-316a-a3a5-13918cf384df”},”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe706c0005″,”_type”:”02ec1f82-5e56-3b8c-af6e-6fc7c8772266″}”>WSJ’s Natalie Andrews captures how it’s all playing in Cheney’s home state: “The race serves as the marquee test of whether vocal anti-Trump lawmakers can survive in today’s Republican Party, pitting supporters of the former president against a persistent and unapologetic critic with little patience for Mr. Trump’s false claim the election was stolen.”

In an interview with Jonathan Karl on “This Week,” Cheney made some news on whether Trump should be prosecuted and her own 2024 plans.

On whether the hearings “demonstrated that Donald Trump needs to be prosecuted”: “Ultimately, the Justice Department will decide that; I think we may well as a committee have a view on that. … If you just think about it from the perspective of what kind of man knows that a mob is armed, and sends the mob to attack the Capitol and further incites that mob when his own vice president is under threat, when the Congress is under threat? … It’s very chilling, and I think, certainly, we will continue to present to the American people what we found.”

She also said that it’s still possible that the committee will make a criminal referral.

On her presidential aspirations: “I haven’t made a decision about that yet. And I’m obviously very focused on my reelection, I’m very focused on the Jan. 6 committee, I’m very focused on my obligations to do the job that I have now, and I’ll make a decision about ’24 down the road. But I think about it less in terms of a decision about running for office and more in terms of, you know, as an American and as somebody who’s in a position of public trust now, how do I make sure that I’m doing everything I can to do the right thing? To do what I know is right for the country and to protect our Constitution.”

2. SCOTUS —NYT’s Adam Liptak makes several notable points this morning about what’s going on behind the scenes at the Supreme Court as justices become more secluded and less collegial with one another:

— Covid protocols and new security = a more isolated court: “Always cloistered and remote, the court is now impenetrable.”

See also  Which Oilers are most likely to return next season? Who goes?

— Retreating from public: “The release of the decision in the abortion case highlighted another way in which the court has withdrawn from public scrutiny. For unexplained reasons, the justices have stopped announcing their decisions from the bench, abandoning a tradition that is both ceremonial and illuminating.”

— Less collegial: “[T]here is every reason to think that the leak, the investigation it prompted, the controversy over Justice CLARENCE THOMAS’s failure to recuse himself from a case that intersected with his wife’s efforts to overturn the election and the justices’ very real security concerns have made the court an unhappy place.”

— All of which is bad for the liberal minority: “A less collegial court seems like it could be especially problematic for the three liberal justices. There are now five Republican-appointed justices who are even more conservative than [Chief Justice JOHN] ROBERTS. If the court is a less collaborative place, I would imagine it gives the justices in the minority — both the liberals and, in some cases, Roberts — less ability to shape decisions.”

SUNDAY BEST

— Rep. ADAM KINZINGER (R-Ill.) on whether new witnesses have come forward to the Jan. 6 committee since CASSIDY HUTCHINSON’s testimony, on CNN’s “State of the Union”: “Yes. Again, I don’t want to get into who or any of those details, and it’s not even just Cassidy — by the way, she’s been inspiring for a lot of people — this happens every day. Every day, we get new people that come forward and say, ‘Hey, I didn’t think maybe this piece of a story that I knew was important, but now that you guys are — like, I do see this plays in here.’ … There will be way more information, and stay tuned.”

— Rep. ZOE LOFGREN (D-Calif.) on reporting that DOJ prosecutors were surprised by Hutchinson’s testimony, on NBC’s “Meet the Press”: “We’re not an arm of the Department of Justice. We’re a legislative committee. They have subpoena power. They could subpoena Ms. Hutchinson. I’m surprised they had not done so. … What are they doing over there? They have a much greater opportunity to enforce their subpoenas than our legislative committee does.”

— HHS Secretary XAVIER BECERRA on his message to congressional Dems frustrated with the Biden administration on abortion, on “Meet the Press”: “I tell them, ‘Give us some good ideas.’ We’re going to explore everything we can. And I also would ask them to please pass a law.”

7 THINGS FOR YOUR RADAR

1. SCOTUS VS. STATES: In letters made public Saturday, the Supreme Court marshal asked Maryland and Virginia leaders to stop protesters from demonstrating outside justices’ homes in the D.C. suburbs, where the conservatives who overturned Roe v. Wade have been the subject of sustained demonstrations. GAIL CURLEY wrote that local laws prohibited such protests. But some state and county officials retorted that such ordinances were likely unconstitutional, infringing on First Amendment rights if demonstrators were standing on public property. More from ABC“,”link”:{“target”:”NEW”,”attributes”:[],”url”:”https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/supreme-court-marshal-asks-officials-maryland-prohibit-picketing/story?id=86121252″,”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe70760000″,”_type”:”33ac701a-72c1-316a-a3a5-13918cf384df”},”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe70760001″,”_type”:”02ec1f82-5e56-3b8c-af6e-6fc7c8772266″}”>More from ABC

MICHAEL RICCI, spox for Maryland Gov. LARRY HOGAN: “Had the marshal taken time to explore the matter, she would have learned that the constitutionality of the statute cited in her letter has been questioned by the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.”

2. HARRIS SPEAKS: The VP excoriated the Supreme Court abortion ruling on stage at the Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans on Saturday, saying it constituted an inappropriate overreach of the government into people’s lives. “The people trying to attack our rights are trying to make people feel small and feel lonely and different because they want you to believe you don’t have power and that you’re out there by yourself,” Harris said in a conversation with actress KEKE PALMER. “We’re not going to let that happen.” More from The Advocate“,”link”:{“target”:”NEW”,”attributes”:[],”url”:”https://www.nola.com/news/politics/national_politics/article_79d44a06-fa5a-11ec-b1b5-63b4f18bc0cf.html”,”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe70760002″,”_type”:”33ac701a-72c1-316a-a3a5-13918cf384df”},”_id”:”00000181-c6fe-dffe-a5b7-dffe70760003″,”_type”:”02ec1f82-5e56-3b8c-af6e-6fc7c8772266″}”>More from The Advocate

3. CASH DASH: Georgia is bracing for new numbers that will likely show STACEY ABRAMS creaming Gov. BRIAN KEMP in fundraising, and the incumbent is rushing to keep up with his Democratic challenger, Brittany Gibson reports. His campaign is working with multiple fundraising consultants and increasingly looking out of state for help in what’s shaping up to be a tight race.

Former Georgia GOP Chair JOHN WATSON: “When you’re in a gunfight, you don’t care where your ammo was manufactured, you just need it.”

For its part, the Kremlin has sought to court conservatives in the United States and sow discord through a network of expats, collaborators and spies.”

5. THE PARK SLOPE PRIMARY: White, well-educated voters in expensive brownstone spots like Boerum Hill could be the key deciding blocs in the chaotic open-seat primary spanning several neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn, Joe Anuta reports. The crowded race featuring Rep. MONDAIRE JONES, BILL DE BLASIO and several other top-flight contenders could hinge on these high-turnout zones — though many of these residents could be on vacation in August.

6. WHAT’S NEXT ON THE LEFT: After the end of Roe, the path ahead for abortion-rights supporters looks fractured and difficult, two big new stories from NYT’s Kate Zernike and WaPo’s Annie Linskey, Mike DeBonis, Marianna Sotomayor and Tyler Pager catalog. Mostly playing defense, they’re taking to the courts to try to stop new abortion restrictions laws or ballot initiatives. And the groups are also placing fresh emphasis on local elections, aiming to flip Republican-held state legislatures or other key local offices. On Capitol Hill, meanwhile, Democrats are divided over the value of “show votes” to force some Republicans into uncomfortable positions on bills that won’t pass.

7. KFILE STRIKES AGAIN: Michigan GOP secretary of state nominee KRISTINA KARAMO said in 2020 that “demonic possession is real” and “having intimate relationships with people who are demonically possessed or oppressed — I strongly believe that a person opens themselves up to possession,” CNN’s Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski reveal in a deep dive into her podcast. Karamo, an election denier now running to oversee elections, also spoke out repeatedly and vigorously against abortion: “The child sacrifice is a very satanic practice, and that’s precisely what abortion is. And we need to see it as such.”
