Trump egged on the crowd, which was "widely understood to include people who were planning to fight physically, and who were prepared to die in response to his false claims of a 'stolen election.''"

Quoted @AP

Twitter suspended an account connected to the office of Iran’s supreme leader, shortly after the account posted a photo of former President Trump playing golf in the shadow of a giant drone. Twitter said the tweet violated its “abusive behavior policy.”

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."

Kevin Groenhagen

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

This has now been confirmed by a Capitol official: Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) tried to bring a gun onto the House floor today.

(I also witnessed the whole thing and saw him try to give his gun to another member.)

Rep. Malliotakis went on Erin Burnett's show and tried to defend her vote against certifying Biden's election win. It didn't go great for her.

Just arrest him. If he tried this shit with TSA at an airport, he’d be arrested. The same should be true in the Capitol. Period.

Delaying Trump’s impeachment trial may allow Trump’s legal team time to get up to speed but it may also allow the House Managers to gather additional evidence of the months’ long efforts that culminated in the Jan. 6th storming of the Capitol. This sword has 2 edges.

Quoted @GOPLeader

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.

This is wrong and must be fixed now. But it’s despicable that @gopleader is falsely blaming the Speaker and Leader by (again) spreading misinformation that could get people killed.

This was a Capitol Police decision — the Speaker and Leader have no authority over them.

American custom on this issue, as in so many others, is based fundamentally on English Feline Common Law, as exemplified in the handling of Larry, Chief Mouser at No. 10 Downing Street. So I'd start there.

@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
