1. People eagerly await the rest of the Supreme Court's decisions this term.
- The court already rejected the independent legislature theory.
- The American people patiently await decisions about student loans, LGBTQ rights and affirmative action.
- Professor Fred Smith, who clerked for the Supreme Court, says we see such a delay in rulings because of different writings and dissenting opinions.
- The court winds down its term in June.
2. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is interviewed by federal investigators.
- Raffensperger was thrust into the national spotlight in 2020 after former President Trump called him and asked him to find more than 11,000 votes.
- DOJ investigators also reached out to Chris Harvey, who was the director of elections at this time.
