Selena Gomez told Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg in September about militia groups on the site. The star told AP this week that, in the wake of the Capitol riots, she was frustrated tech platforms failed to heed warnings. Selena Gomez emailed Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg in September 2020 to warn of US militia groups operating on the social network despite a ban. This is about truth versus lies and Facebook, Instagram and big tech companies have to stop allowing lies to just flow and pretend to be the truth. Gomez's email came despite Facebook banning or restricting militia groups in August.

Several historians are voicing concern about collecting Trump's White House records because of the administration's bad track record of preserving documents. Historians are growing increasingly concerned about collecting Trump's White House records because of the administration's inconsistency with preserving documents and the president's long-standing habit of ripping up papers, the Associated Press (AP) reported Saturday. White House records workers and historians now fear they will have to do the same, with one person telling news website Fortune that they are "petrified" by the task they are facing. Boxes are stacked on West Executive Avenue before being loaded onto a truck at the White House on January 14. Last month, multiple historian groups sued the White House over fears that the Trump Administration will improperly maintain records.

Cramer and others have been buzzing about a legal assessment from retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig saying the Senate can't hold an impeachment trial once Trump leaves office. Under the Senate rules, the upper chamber must prioritize the Trump trial once the House officially delivers its article of impeachment charging Trump with inciting rioters who stormed the Capitol. But the senator acknowledged that Republicans like him are also worried about backlash from Trump and his supporters as the impeachment trial approaches. Chief Justice John Roberts presided over President Trump's first impeachment trial in early 2021. Cramer said he doesn't think there are 17 GOP Senate votes who would join with all 50 Democrats to convict Trump.

US rivals are looking to use the Capitol siege to their advantage

The US's rivals are likely calculating that the US, distracted by the Capitol Siege of January 6, will be ill-equipped to respond to provocations. Since January 6, multiple key national security officials have announced their resignations, reducing the cadre of security experts who have longstanding relationships with President Donald Trump. Some adversaries are likely to use the Capitol siege as a catalyst to take new malign actions, while others will instead use the events of January 6 to justify their existing destabilizing behavior. Members of the National Guard in Washington, DC, after rioters broke into the US Capitol, on January 6, 2021. Adversaries are also likely to consider how they can exploit the extreme societal divisions on display on January 6, including via further online disinformation efforts, some of which helped spur the Capitol siege in the first place.

To help, we've answered some of the biggest questions everyone has about the coronavirus vaccine. A half-dose of Oxford-AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine initially could mean we have double the number doses available when it's approved by regulators. You should get a coronavirus vaccine as soon as your turn comes if you want it. So in that regard, I would not be surprised, as we get into the full scope of [COVID-19] vaccination, that some companies, some hospitals, some organizations might require [COVID-19] vaccination." President Donald Trump signed a bill into law last year that aimed at ensuring that patients don't get charged for coronavirus vaccines.

A Secret Service agent has said that security at President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration will be far tighter than at the Capitol riot, the Associated Press reported. "I don't want to use the expression that we're comparing apples to oranges," Michael Plati, the agent in charge of the inauguration's security, told the AP. Unlike the protest that led to last Wednesday's insurrection, the inauguration is a "national special security event" and will have more resources dedicated to protecting it, the AP said. On January 6, President Donald Trump had encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol to protest Biden's certification. But according to the AP, Plati has said that the inauguration is of a completely different order.
