The media is back to overhyping the non-story about whether the 1/6 committee will make a criminal referral. Given that referrals are meant to alert the DOJ of a potential crime, and the DOJ has already said it’s watching the hearings and has sought transcripts, it’s a non-issue.
Given how busy of a news week it’s been, you’d think the media wouldn’t fall back on this trope. But now that the average viewer can see Trump is likely going to be indicted, the media is using the scare tactic of falsely implying that Trump will go free if there’s no referral. As always, your job is not to fall for this kind of ratings-driven doomsday hysteria.

– Want to win the midterms? Spread the word. Even if you only have 72 Twitter followers and 28 Facebook friends, that’s an audience of 100. If you post links to competitive House and Senate races, and 2 of those 100 people donate, and 3 of them volunteer, you’ve made a difference. For starters, sign up for these nine competitive Senate races:
Pennsylvania – Ohio – Florida – North Carolina – Wisconsin – Arizona – Georgia – New Hampshire – Nevada
