Littwin: Trump’s legacy will be his Supreme Court and overturning Roe, no matter what the Jan. 6 panel finds

Now, at long last, we should be able to see clearly what we have done, how careless we were, how thoughtless, how gullible, how easily duped. In just two days’ time, we have been shown the true legacy of 2016, the year when America lost its bearings and unaccountably elected a carnival barker — not […]

Littwin: If you watched the latest House hearing, you know John Eastman is a villain of the piece

When I tuned into the latest January 6 hearing, I knew John Eastman — as the principal architect of various bizarre schemes to steal the 2020 election from Joe Biden — would play a major role. Bob Woodward’s and Bob Costa’s book “Peril” put Eastman right at the center of it months ago. What I […]

Littwin: Thanks to Liz Cheney, the January 6 hearings are now must-watch TV

If I’m honest — and I try to be even when not under oath — I was afraid that the January 6 committee would blow its big prime-time opportunity Thursday night.

Littwin: You think it’s easy to keep writing about Lauren Boebert? How about too easy?

I know this sounds counterintuitive, but believe me, it’s true. The hardest part of writing about Lauren Boebert is that it’s way too easy to write about Lauren Boebert. You could write about her and some fresh outrage nearly every day, which is, of course, exactly what she wants you to do. Try reading her […]
