AdvertisementThe House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack has been exploring the origin of the plan to appoint rival slates of Trump electors.

The House Jan. 6 investigation committee has conducted over 800 interviews with insurrectionists and Trump aides. On a committee dominated by Democrats after Republican House leadership withdrew its cooperation, partisan differences have emerged, though in somewhat unexpected ways. Cheney, for instance, has proved more aggressive than even some committee Democrats in wanting to go directly after Trump. The Justice Department, which is carrying out its own investigation, has become a source of frustration for many committee members. In some respects, committee members will have precedents to draw on: Trump was impeached twice, including once for his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 riot.

State and local officials can use this new data to prioritize where they spend scarce dollars to reduce risk. In other places, it could mean making sure roads are accessible to get people out and fire trucks in. If I own a home in one of these areas, what can I do and how much will it cost me? Remember, she or he has a financial incentive to reduce those risks.

Crime is always too high because one murder a year in San Francisco would still be one murder too many. Despite this, there is a powerful movement afoot to recall San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin.

This would be a big symbolic victory for the right, celebrated at Fox News and in conservative San Francisco circles.
