‘Two Words: Hell No.’ – Democrats and Republicans shoot down DOJ plan to expand detention rights

We posted yesterday about a plan from the Department of Justice to ask Congress for the right to detain people without trial over the coronavirus, and many members of Congress had the same reaction ya’ll had when I wrote about it:

Well. I guess that’s it then. However, it may be that the headline we’re being sold isn’t quite representative of what the Department of Justice is actually seeking.

Well then, maybe we don’t have to worry about it at all. I note that in the original report that the DOJ did not want to respond to the story in Politico.
