Today, California Republican Kevin McCarthy “battles to secure enough votes to be named House Speaker, while facing fierce opposition from the right-wing of his caucus” to take the place of outgoing Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, also from California, reports The Guardian. 

McCarthy needs 218 votes to win the speakership, but faces opposition from far-right Republican representatives such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz.

The right-wing House freedom caucus chair’s Scott Perry tweeted:

Pelosi will continue to represent California as a congresswoman in the House for her San Francisco district, but announced she will be stepping back from her leadership role.

Pelosi’s replacement for Democratic leadership is pointing to progressive Hakeem Jeffries to be House minority leader.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
