Republican leaders and Trump loyalists on Capitol Hill rally behind the former president after indictment 
The news of the indictment broke just hours after lawmakers on Capitol Hill departed for a two-week Easter recess. The halls of the Capitol were quiet. On social media, Republicans were much louder. It was only a matter of minutes after news of the indictment broke before some of his fiercest defenders on Capitol Hill rushed to his defense. “Outrageous,” House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan tweeted. “BREAKING: Trump has been indicted! This is another political witch hunt targeting the people’s President,” Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted.

What the debate around the U.S. Department of Education could mean for District 51 
How would Mesa County Valley School District 51 be impacted if it lost access to U.S. Department of Education funding? The county’s U.S. House representative, Lauren Boebert (R-Silt), last Friday made the argument that the Department of Education should be abolished during a debate about H.R. 5 (118), the Parents Bill of Rights that would codify federal education law to give parents access to school curricula, library books and other teaching materials. That bill passed the House 213-208 but is expected have a difficult time passing the Democratic-majority Senate. However, Boebert passionately supported an amendment proposed by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) that would eliminate the department entirely.
Lauren Boebert-backed amendments on transgender school policies easily pass the House 
The House of Representatives adopted two amendments on voice votes Thursday that would require schools to notify parents if biological male students who identify as women are permitted to use bathroom facilities or participate in athletics based on their gender identity. The two amendments to HR 5, the Parents Bill of Rights, were sponsored by conservative firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and were adopted by a voice vote during the floor debate on the legislation. The Parents Bill of Rights, which was sponsored by Rep. Julia Letlow (R-LA), would require all public school districts to disclose their curriculum materials to parents, mandate parental consent for participation in student surveys, and prohibit schools from selling student information “for commercial or financial gain.”

Lauren Boebert snarls “we’re not a democracy so quit with that!” in response to calls for gun laws 
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) lashed out at a gay leader of a teachers union for saying that the U.S. is a democracy. “And, you know, maybe one of the things that we need to address with the Democrat party is, you played a clip from the teachers union with Randi there talking,” Boebert said, referring to out American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten. “Maybe one thing we need to address is we’re not a democracy! So quit with that!” She was referring to a clip where Weingarten said: “How many lives will be shattered before we have the courage to do what Scotland did, what Australia did, what New Zealand did, what other great democracies do? We must solve this epidemic, and that’s up to us.”

Wee the people: Republican Boebert presses DC witness on public urination 
In bizarre scenes in a US House hearing, the far-right Republican Lauren Boebert asked if a revised Washington DC criminal code was now law – only to be reminded that Congress overturned it earlier this month – then fixated on whether that code would have decriminalised public urination. The revision was meant to give the District of Columbia a first code update in 120 years, but it became subject to fierce debate over crime as a political issue. Republicans said the code was soft on violent offenses. Angering progressives, Joe Biden said he would not veto a Republican measure to overturn the code.

Colorado GOP is laying the groundwork to challenge the state’s open primary law 
According to the letter, the committee chairman, Williams, would establish the fund and appoint a governing board with “final authority” over spending the money. “The Fund plans to accept unlimited amounts from individuals, political committees, corporations, and labor organizations,” the letter states, and would only be used for the lawsuit. The move is not surprising. Williams talked about closing the GOP primary as he campaigned for the state party chair job. “We must work to close the primaries so that only Republicans choose our Republican nominees,” he said. “We cannot afford to let Democrats become unaffiliated so that they then can meddle in our primaries, like they did with (Rep.) Lauren Boebert. We must defend and protect our caucus assembly.”
