House Democrats' obsession with former President Trump was on full display today during a hearing of the House Rules Committee on their proposal to reform the Electoral Count Act (ECA), released just 24 hours earlier. There is bipartisan agreement that the ECA needs reform. The Electoral Count Act is a federal law adding to procedures set out in the Constitution of the United States for the counting of electoral votes following a presidential election. (There is some debate whether the ECA is even necessary or constitutional but all agree the 1887 Act has problems.)
As mentioned yesterday, House Democrats have used ECA reform first and foremost as a political stunt.

"This bill is about Democrats' obsession with Donald Trump, not about actually passing good legislation."
