Lawfare's Quinta Jurecic on what's next for the January 6th Committee and the steps Congress can take to safeguard American democracy.
The death toll in Nepal continues to rise, two days after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake. Officials estimate nearly 4,000 people have lost their lives. Damage to the country’s cultural treasures was also great, with centuries-old landmarks reduced to rubble. Terrified residents have begun fleeing the capital of Kathmandu, fearing the powerful aftershocks that have continued since Saturday. If they stay, they’re facing a growing shortage of food and supplies. While experts have long known that a quake on this scale was likely, the area has remained vulnerable to major devastation. We look at the aftermath of Nepal’s deadly earthquake and what more can be done to prepare for and predict severe earthquakes.
