News roundup: The one-year anniversary of the insurrection nears

In the news today: Thursday is the one-year anniversary of the Donald Trump cultists’ attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, and the news of the day reflects that. Another right-wing paramilitary group’s potential involvement was revealed; three more lawsuits were filed against Trump for his role in inciting the insurrection; the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol wants to talk to Fox News’ hatemonger Sean Hannity; Trump folded like a cheap suit after Republicans, worried about the 2022 election, begged him to cancel his sedition celebration; and a former Trump lackey went on television to explain how the coup was supposed to work. 

Here’s some of what you may have missed:

  • Yet another ‘Patriot’ paramilitary group may have played a key ‘insider’ role in Jan. 6 insurrection
  • Number of lawsuits against Trump grow as more police accuse him of inciting the riot on the Capitol
  • Jan. 6 probe: Sean Hannity has insights into Trump’s thinking in attempted election overthrow
  • Trump cancels Jan. 6 event, as Republicans worry 2022 election could be a referendum on coup attempt
  • Peter Navarro gives yet another off-the-rails interview describing his Jan. 6 ‘plan’—and it’s a coup

And from the community:

  • Bravo, Macron! [Yes, piss off the superspreaders]
  • Deaths of prominent anti-vaxxers not slowing anti-vax movement
  • Hurricanes move poleward, expanding into the heavily populated eastern seaboard
