email from guy who claims to be a former Marine:
"There will soon be a reckoning. I don't believe you and your fellow anti-American liberals will fare well."
I just got a physical letter in the mail (!) from this same guy. Called Postal Inspector and they said they won't investigate unless it contains a physical threat to me personally (he only called me an “anti-American moron”). Lives in KS. I’m passing to my police dept

Poet Amanda Gorman tells CNN's @AndersonCooper that the Capitol riot inspired her to write a "message of hope, ingenuity and healing"
This has now been confirmed by a Capitol official: Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) tried to bring a gun onto the House floor today.

Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer—why are American troops who are tasked with keeping security at the Capitol being forced to sleep in a parking lot?
They deserve to be treated with respect, and we deserve answers.

@AshaRangappa_ 🐾 Hi Asha, Winston Biden here. I am the de facto COTUS, as I am the only Biden cat right now. I live with my mom @NaomiBiden but I can go to the White House during daytime if want to - like I did today. And yes, there is some supervision involved: I have a security detail. Meow!
Can you confirm: There are reports that the delay is because the Feline Bureau of Investigation is conducting "extreme petting" of animal shelters due to worries that there may be attempts to infiltrate the White House by MewAnon
In January 2017 my then 8-year-old asked if the Muslim Ban meant we had to leave?
Yesterday my now 12-year-old asked if I thought his 5-year-old sister could also one day be Vice President or President?
