Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says any of her Republican colleagues in Congress who sought pardons over Jan. 6 “should be expelled” from the House.

Reps. Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Andy Biggs (Ariz.) and Scott Perry (Pa.) were named in the testimony as having sought pardons.

“I will say, bare minimum, those who specifically thought pardons for themselves should be expelled from the United States House of Representatives, beyond a shadow of a doubt,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

Before the Jan. 6 committee testimony about pardons came to light, Ocasio-Cortez had previously called for any member of Congress “who helped plot a terrorist attack on our nation’s Capitol” to be expelled.

Ocasio-Cortez slammed some lawmakers who she accused of bringing in “insurrectionists to essentially case the joint before coming in” on Jan. 6.

“There was a feeling and a great sense that there were people on the inside,” she told Colbert.

Ocasio-Cortez, who will turn 35 just weeks before the next presidential election, also batted away talk of a 2024 White House bid. »

The Japanese conglomerate hopes that PC gamers — particularly first-person shooter players — will give Inzone a chance, and not associate Sony primarily with consoles.

Inzone hardware builds on Sony’s current offerings for TVs, monitors and noise-cancelling ear buds, tailoring that technology to appeal to gamers. »

Thanks to Russian President Vladimir Putin, NATO’s Madrid Summit takes place this week against the backdrop of a resurgent Western alliance.

Washington has so far been unwilling to caution Kyiv against seeking the full expulsion of Russian troops from its land.

WASHINGTON, June 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday dramatically increased the power of states over Native American tribes and undercut its own 2020 ruling that had expanded tribal authority in Oklahoma, handing a victory to Republican officials in that state.

"To be clear, the court today holds that Indian country within a state's territory is part of a state, not separate from a state," Kavanaugh wrote in a decision that scholars of Native American law said was a major departure from longstanding precedent.

In the McGirt decision, the court recognized about half of Oklahoma - much of the eastern part of the state - as Native American reservation land beyond the jurisdiction of state authorities. »
