Trump’s talk of pardons intensifies as he reaches his last 24 hours in office. President-elect Biden pledges to end the Keystone XL pipeline, and other executive orders and legislation we can expect in his first days as president. Janet Yellen urges lawmakers to ‘act big’ on economic stimulus relief, plus Senator Warren applauds Biden’s pick to lead the Consumer Finance Protection Board, Rohit Chopra. Deplatforming works as research shows misinformation plummeting following Trump’s social media bans.
In the latest fallout from January 6th: video from the New Yorker shows rioters flipping through private materials and taking pictures – but it’s okay because "Ted Cruz would be cool with this." Additionally, a rioter allegedly stole Pelosi’s laptop and tried to sell it to Russia’s foreign intelligence service. Plus, a Virginia man is arrested at a DC Checkpoint with a gun, and 500 rounds of ammo. Some in the GOP parrot far-right talking points of civil war and the apparent leader of the Oath Keepers militia is charged with planning and coordinating the breach at the US Capitol. FBI Intelligence briefing details the efforts QAnon adherents have taken to pose as National Guard members and infiltrate the inauguration, with at least two National Guardsmen being removed from the Biden Inauguration detail over ties to right-wing militia groups.
Lastly, Communications Director to Congresswoman Boebert quits, as Democratic lawmakers say Rep. Boebert gave Capitol tour to a ‘large’ group before the riots.
