John Boehner has been skewering Ted Cruz in publicity for his forthcoming memoir. The Texas lawmaker got his revenge after a signed copy of the book was left in his office on Tuesday. To top it all off, Boehner added an unscripted, "PS, Ted Cruz, go f--- yourself" in the audiobook recording of the memoir. "Some smart-ass dropped off a copy of Boehner's new book at my office," Cruz tweeted. Cruz had previously responded to Boehner's criticism last week, when the Texas lawmaker tweeted he wore Boehner's "drunken, bloviated scorn" "with pride."

A top Ivanka Trump initiative was deeply flawed and mismanaged, according to a new independent report. The rollout of programs funded through a 2018 women's empowerment bill failed at one agency.

Former President Donald Trump's eldest daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump, helped promote the policy program and ushered the bill through Congress. According to Politico, Ivanka Trump praised the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative as "enabling us to rigorously track the execution and the efficacy of the money that we are spending."

In 2017, Gaetz was the only member of Congress to vote against an anti-human trafficking bill. A controversial past vote by Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida has taken on new significance following reports that the Republican lawmaker is under federal investigation over whether he violated sex trafficking laws. In 2017, Gaetz was the lone member of Congress to vote against an anti-human trafficking bill that gave the federal government more money to fight the illegal trade across the country. Following the vote, Gaetz defended his solo stance in a Facebook Live video broadcast.

The federal judiciary has always been overrepresented by male judges compared to the US population. But Donald Trump's appointments of more than 230 judges left the courts even less female. After four years in office, President Donald Trump left America's judiciary — an institution already steeped in gender homogeneity — significantly more male. During his one-term presidency, Trump appointed more than 230 lifetime-appointed judges to the federal court system, installing approximately 28% of the current federal judiciary and cementing his legacy on the American court system for decades to come. The percentage of female Trump appointees is even smaller — only 24% of his picks are women.

But the chaos of the January 6 siege has led to reinvigorated calls for granting DC statehood. DC residents themselves, though, hardly need to be reminded of their paradoxical political disadvantages. Supporters for DC Statehood cheer as drivers honk their horns during the morning commute outside the Rayburn Building in Washington, DC on February, 11, 2020. Later that year at a press conference, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a Republican, said granting DC statehood would be "unconstitutional."

President Joe Biden gave his first press conference Thursday since taking office in January. During the hour-long conference, not a single question about COVID-19 was asked of the president. During President Joe Biden's first solo press conference since taking office in January, not a single reporter asked a question about the coronavirus pandemic — a notable omission as the country continues to see tens of thousands of new cases each day. White house Chief of Staff Ronald Klein retweeted a number of tweets noting the absence immediately following the press conference. Others, still, suggested the absence of coronavirus questions was proof of Biden's success thus far in handing the country's COVID-19 response.

Montana's governor was given a warning after he killed a Yellowstone wolf outside the park last month. Greg Gianforte was let off with a warning for defying a state regulation before trapping and killing a Yellowstone wolf near the national park in February.

"After learning he had not completed the wolf-trapping certification, Governor Gianforte immediately rectified the mistake and enrolled in the wolf-trapping certification course.

Calls to end the Senate filibuster have intensified after two mass shootings in one week in the US. Activists say trashing the filibuster is the only way to pass gun reform in the Senate. The dual tragedies have once again reinvigorated calls for comprehensive, federal gun control. Supporters argue doing so is the only way to push forward a progressive agenda, including an increased minimum wage, student-loan forgiveness, and now, gun control. Even with the Democrats' narrow control of both chambers, passing any type of gun legislation in the Senate is unlikely.
