U.S. District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich ruled last week that an effort to
interrupt
the counting of the electoral votes can be a crime — even if no violence was
contemplated.

Friedrich’s ruling came in the case against Ronald Sandlin and Nathaniel
DeGrave,
two men accused of storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. In doing so, she
refused
to throw out charges that they had “corruptly” obstructed an official
proceeding
before Congress by “entering and remaining in the United States Capitol
without
authority and committing an act of civil disorder, and engaging in
disorderly and
disruptive conduct.”

The false and misleading claims President Biden made during his
first 100 days in office
Among the most notable falsehoods of President Biden’s first 100
days in office was his claim — which he made three times — that
Georgia’s controversial Republican-backed election law had shortened
voting hours.

The claim was one of two uttered by Biden to earn the Fact Checker’s
“Four Pinocchio” rating, reserved for whoppers — the other being his
wildly off-base statement, borrowed from the campaign, that federal
contracts “awarded directly to foreign companies” rose by 30 percent
under President Donald Trump.

More typical for Biden, when he uttered a false statement, was some
subtle truth-stretching.

He spun that if Congress passed his infrastructure plan, “the
economy” would create 19 million additional jobs; only 2.7 million
of those jobs could be attributed to the proposal itself. He
asserted that as vice president he helped craft an $800 billion
strategy to help Central America; it was $750 million.

Through April 29, his 100th day, Biden has made 78 false or
misleading statements, according to a Washington Post Fact Checker
analysis of every speech, interview, tweet or public statement made
by the president.
