In other news, Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz has launched an investigation of current and former agency officials who may have tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Meanwhile, Dominion Voting Systems has filed a defamation lawsuit against Trump's former clownshow attorney Rudy Giuliani who repeatedly accused the company of fraud.

Finally, President Biden has signed an executive order that instructs federal agencies to prioritize American-made goods and service when they sign contracts with new vendors.

The order directs federal agencies to reevaluate the threshold used to determine U.S. content, to prevent companies that sell to the government from importing largely foreign-made goods and selling them as U.S.-made after making minor tweaks.

It sets a deadline of 180 days for regulators to finalize the changes once they are proposed, and orders up a new website to ensure transparency about any waivers granted. The official gave no new percentages for required U.S. content, saying they would be determined as a result of the process being launched on Monday.

Trump told people to "Buy American," but he never actually had a policy that called on federal agencies to raise content thresholds. Like most other similar policies, waivers will be granted when American-made goods aren't available.

Forgive the light posting today, but there really wasn't much happening and I don't like to ramble just to fill content space.
