Regions Bank confirmed to Insider that the PAC of its holding company is the victim of nine counterfeit checks. During the 2020 election, the Regions Financial Corporation PAC spread hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions among dozens of politicians — both Republicans and Democrats. Nevertheless, thieves made off with $31,550 from the federal political action committee of Regions Financial Corporation, the holding company of Alabama-based Regions Bank, according to new documents filed with the Federal Election Commission. On December 8, Regions Bank refunded the PAC the full amount that had been stolen, according to FEC records. King confirmed that Regions Bank, which operates in 16 states throughout the South and Midwest, has reported the theft to law enforcement in multiple states but declined to identify which ones.

The top House Republican, Kevin McCarthy, declined or ignored reporters’ questions about Cheney’s move on Wednesday. As the House debated whether to impeach Trump, Cheney explained that her beef with the president was not merely around a difference of opinion over legislation. Republican Representative Andy Biggs, a Trump ally, nonetheless sought retribution against the leader of the House Republican Caucus, a position that her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, once held when he served in Congress. But Cheney, from the deeply Republican state of Wyoming, had no such hesitation in announcing her intention on Tuesday to vote for Trump’s impeachment.
