As part of his 2024 campaign, Donald Trump is now declaring war against transgender people – especially transgender children – even vowing to use DOJ and Congress to make being transgender illegal under federal law, if elected President. He also promised to promote the “nuclear family,” an attack on same-sex couples and families. And he pledged to use the Dept. of Education to file federal civil rights charges against local school teachers who support transgender children – or even the very concept of being transgender.

GOP House Leadership Silent on Rep.-Elect George Santos's Lies
(CNN) -- There's a cloud hanging over Republicans' takeover of the House next week -- and for once, it's not former President Donald Trump.Congressman-elect George Santos, whose victory in a New York district last month was key to the GOP flipping the chamber, insists he's coming to Congress despite admitting this week to fabricating key parts of his biography. There's a growing range of probes into his lies, with CNN reporting Wednesday night that federal prosecutors in New York are investigating his finances and local prosecutors are "looking into" his fabrications.Those falsehoods -- several more of which CNN's KFile uncovered on Wednesday -- combined with Santos' defiance and Republican leadership's silence are setting up the GOP for a fraught first week in power.GOP leadership hasn't even acknowledged the controversy, which is leading to fears among some of Santos' fellow incoming congressmen from the Empire State that his issues could overshadow Republicans' ascent to power."Attempts to blame others or minimize his actions are only making things worse and a complete distraction from the task at hand," Rep.-elect Mike Lawler said in a statement on Wednesday."New Yorkers deserve the truth and House Republicans deserve an opportunity to govern without this distraction," said Rep.-elect Nick LaLota, who was elected to a Long Island district, in a statement Tuesday in which he called for an ethics investigation "and, if necessary, law enforcement" involvement.House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, who has not returned CNN's requests for comment about Santos, has been focused on trying to secure the votes for the speakership next month.
Jan. 6 Committee Refers Criminal Charges for Donald Trump
(CNN) -- The January 6 committee used its final public meeting Monday to summarize its 17-month investigation with a simple closing statement: All roads lead to Donald Trump.Members focused on how the former president's direct involvement in efforts to overturn the 2020 election makes him responsible for the violence that unfolded at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and unfit to hold future office.The committee laid out the case for both the public and the Justice Department that there's evidence to pursue criminal charges against Trump on multiple criminal statutes, including obstructing an official proceeding, defrauding the United States, making false statements and assisting or aiding an insurrection.The committee released an executive summary of its report on Monday, and it plans to release the full report on Wednesday, as well as transcripts of committee interviews.Here are takeaways from the committee's final public meeting:Committee refers Trump to DOJFor months, the committee went back-and-forth over whether it would refer Trump to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution.On Monday, the committee didn't equivocate.The committee referred Trump to DOJ on at least four criminal charges, while saying in its executive summary it had evidence of possible charges of conspiring to injure or impede an officer and seditious conspiracy.In practice, the referral is effectively a symbolic measure.
Transgender Insurrectionist Found Guilty, Faces 50+ Years in Prison
Jessica Watkins, a transgender woman, was one of five Oath Keeper members convicted for their participation in the January 6 Insurrection that attempted to derail certifying the 2020 presidential election, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.Watkins and the other Oath Keepers were found guilty following an eight-week-long trial and three days of jury deliberations.The Oath Keepers are a far-right group with many members associated with militias and with former military or law enforcement backgrounds, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.Elmer Steward Rhodes, the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers, and Kelly Meggs, leader of the group’s Florida chapter, were both found guilty of sedition.Watkins, 40, was found guilty of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an official proceeding, interfering with law enforcement officers during a civil disorder, and conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging duties. Kenneth Harrelson and Thomas Caldwell were convicted on related felony charges.“As this case shows, breaking the law in an attempt to undermine the functioning of American democracy will not be tolerated” FBI Director Christopher Wray said.  “The FBI will always uphold the rights of all citizens who peacefully engage in First Amendment protected activities, but we and our partners will continue to hold accountable those who engaged in illegal acts regarding the January 6, 2021, siege on the U.S. Capitol.”The group, including Watkins, had been planning to block the lawful transfer of presidential power, according to the DOJ.
Conservatives Spew Transphobia at Already Anti-Trans Federal Agency
An agency that deals with registering American men of adult age for the draft, the Selective Service System, is getting a lot of attention from conservatives because of how the agency handles matters surrounding sex and gender identity.Earlier this month, the agency sent a tweet that sent conservatives over the edge and gave the right-wing influencers more fodder for transphobic bigotry.“Parents, if your son is an only son and the last male in your family to carry the family name, he is still required to register with SSS,” the agency tweeted. “Learn more about who needs to register,” along with a link to the system’s guidelines.Reaction to the post was mixed, from some users seemingly surprised to learn that Selective Service is still a thing to others who believe a conspiracy theory that the Biden administration is secretly preparing for nuclear war with Russia.Stephen Miller, the Trump administration figure behind some of the most hateful acts of that period, including childhood separation, tweeted, “Growing concern about Biden tumbling us into nuclear Armageddon.” But not to be outdone, ultra-MAGA influencers like Jenna Ellis, a legal advisor for former President Donald Trump's presidential campaign who pushed the false claim of election fraud and was compelled to testify before a Georgia grand jury about her involvement in the plot to influence the election, took the opportunity to target the LGBTQ+ community.“What is a male?” the former traffic lawyer tweeted on October 9, amplifying the tweet to her hundreds of thousands of followers.
