|Claim by Brian Tyler Cohen: House Speaker “Kevin McCarthy has quietly implemented a pay raise for members (of Congress) that could be $30,000+ per person. It circumvents the Constitution by instead reimbursing their rent, utilities, & meals.”
PolitiFact rating: Mostly False (The U.S. House of Representatives changed its reimbursement rules. For the first time, lawmakers can be reimbursed for expenses related to living in Washington, D.C., similar to the way private-sector employees are reimbursed when they’re out of town on business. But the change did not affect base pay. It was set in motion when Democrats controlled Congress and advanced through two committees with strong bipartisan support.)
|Claim via social media users: A video shows Sen. Dianne Feinstein returning to the U.S. Capitol in a hearse on Wednesday following her two-and-a-half-month absence due to illness.
AP News rating: False (Really? Altered video.)
|Claim by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claimed during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity that 300,000 Ukrainian troops have died during the conflict.

|FALSE||(International: Russia): Claim by Yevgeny Prigozhin: “We saved a whole country called [the Central African Republic], saved tens of thousands of lives from bandits, terrorists, and, most importantly, from the French.”
POLYGRAPH.info rating: False
