    After Trump supporters staged the deadly Capitol attack in January, Republicans chose not to hold Trump accountable for his role in the insurrection.

    Indeed, many Republicans have continued Trump’s drumbeat of calling the election’s legitimacy into question. State lawmakers across the country have proposed hundreds of bills this year to limit voting rights, often justifying them with baseless claims of voter fraud.

    The party has also resisted censuring the most extreme voices within their ranks – like Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Congresswoman who has made racist remarks and spread conspiracy theories, even believing in QAnon.

    How far will the Republican Party go to embrace right-wing extremism?
