UNPLUGGING: After working a 20 hour day yesterday, finishing a feature on his phone outside the SCIF, chasing 12 of 16 lawmakers in the SCIF briefing down for exclusives, solidifying his new summer course at Johns Hopkins, hopping on Wyoming Public Radio for a live two-way and then having a needle injected into his spine later this afternoon, Laslo’s about to unplug and recoup (for folks asking to tip our invalid ass! Ask a Pol Venmo & PayPal — crypto welcome. haha).

Transcripts coming TBD…

*knowing people may subscribe just for AOC, this is free to all. The exchange like, not even a let down; it’s more a canceled launch. AOC’s always mum AF leaving classified briefings (keeps her out of prison, but sucks for us. So selfish! *wink*).

That said, after Grusch testified, AOC exclusively told us she’s at the table because of the defense contracting industrial complex.

And Mace and others mentioned them to us leaving the SCIF, so we plan to circle back with her — just after she forgets we’re asking about things discussed in briefing. Shhh — our lil secret…

SUBSCRIBER-ONLY SNEAK PEAKS: 5 NEW EXCLUSIVES (+ Burchett cameo)

*oh sh*t, just remembered Jack Harlow’s Lovin on Me — embarrassing AF, especially as I couldn’t turn it off and had to walk away from the cameras and scrum — went off on my phone as I was switching apps (fuckin waited 20 mins for a late bus in the cold while writing a Raw Story feature on it, so it was finicky at start of SCIF stakeout—where I finished said feature on my phone. haha).

**when we apologized to Rep. Luna later, she was like: ‘No worries. Great song!’ Mad props, ma’am. Mad props.

I cover Congress different. I listen. Learning daily. Even while throwing stones at all the glass houses. This will be a stream of my noteworthy interviews. They're conducted at the US Capitol, if not otherwise noted. Matt Laslo is a veteran congressional reporter, Johns Hopkins University lecturer, fmr. Vice News Tonight/HBO correspondent, etc.
