Donald Trump is found guilty of sexually assaulting E Jean Carroll, but no one doubts he’s still on a path to the top of the Republican ticket in 2024. The GOP is also sticking by Rep. George Santos after he was indicted by a grand jury on 13 criminal charges. They really know how to pick some good ones!

Plus, what do our hosts think of President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s standoff over the debt limit? And Tucker Carlson announces his return to spewing propaganda on Twitter, while RFK Jr. does surprisingly well in Democratic polls.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Next week’s TNL will be streamed LIVE on YouTube on The Bulwark’s main channel. Tune in May 17th at 3 pm EST to watch Tim, Sarah, and JVL record in the same room for the first time in ages! The chat will be open to get ready to ask our hosts your burning questions! Join here.
