LOL. Nine days ago, Politico had a big article titled, “Does John Katko Have The Secret to Thwarting Trump?”:

And now he’s gone:
GOP Rep. John Katko in the last year voted for:
– Impeaching Trump
– The bullshit J6 Committee
– Removing MTG from her committees
– Holding Steve Bannon in contempt
– Biden's non-infrastructure bill
Today, he announced his retirement.
