WASHINGTON — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., apologized Monday for comparing mask-wearing requirements at the Capitol to the Holocaust after visiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. “I have made a mistake and it's really bothered me for a couple of weeks now, and so I definitely want to own it. This afternoon, I visited the Holocaust Museum. The Holocaust is, there's nothing comparable to it...it happened, and, you know, over six million Jewish people were murdered,” Greene said speaking to reporters outside the Capitol Monday evening. Last Friday, the House attending physician, Brian Monahan, issued new guidance for the House of Representatives stating that “fully vaccinated individuals may discontinue mask wear and 6-foot social distance separations” including on the House floor and in committee rooms.

Greene came under fire for comparing the House mask mandate to the horrors suffered by Jews in Nazi Germany. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday evening publicly apologized for her previous comparisons of COVID-19 mask requirements and vaccination efforts to the horrors suffered by Jews in Nazi Germany. Greene's apology comes as House Democrats move to censure her after she likened mask mandates and vaccine rules to the persecution of Jews during the Holocaust. The "gold star" reference, which historians more commonly refer to as a yellow star, was an identifier that Nazi Germany forced Jews to wear. Several House Democrats swiftly condemned Greene's language, followed by House Republican leadership.

WASHINGTON — Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar will be the target of dueling resolutions expected to be filed this week admonishing them for remarks that critics said were antisemitic or inappropriate. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., is expected to unveil a resolution Wednesday that would censure Greene, of Georgia, for remarks last month comparing House mask rules to the Holocaust. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., is leading an effort to craft resolution to censure Omar. In 2019, the House voted to condemn antisemitism in response to statements made by Omar, but the resolution did not name her. And Tlaib said Republicans had mischaracterized remarks she made about Israel and the Holocaust.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) holds a press conference outside the U.S. Capitol following a private visit to the Holocaust Museum, to express contrition for previous remarks about Jewish people, in Washington, June 14, 2021. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., apologized Monday for a series of comments she made comparing coronavirus-related rules and restrictions to the treatment of Jewish people in Nazi Germany. "I know that words that I have stated were hurtful, and for that I'm very sorry," Greene told reporters outside the U.S. Capitol. Greene said she had visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington earlier Monday afternoon, and "there's nothing comparable to it." The apology from the 47-year-old freshman member of Congress marked a complete reversal from her stance weeks earlier.

WASHINGTON — A dozen House Democrats publicly criticized their colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., late Wednesday, accusing her of giving "cover" to terrorist and suggesting her remarks about Hamas and the Taliban reflect a "deep-seated prejudice." “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided,” the group, led by Rep. Brad Schneider, of Illinois, said in a statement, urging Omar to "clarify" her remarks. Omar responded to her critics by calling their statement "offensive" and defending her initial remarks. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she wrote on Twitter, echoing her remarks on the video. In a follow-up tweet, Omar defend her initial remarks: “Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the [The International Criminal Court] isn’t comparison or from 'deeply seated prejudice'.

WASHINGTON — House Republicans don't have to stand so close to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican who spouts lunatic-fringe conspiracy theories and antisemitic sentiments with frequency and fervor. The chances of Greene getting kicked out of the conference are "slim to none," former Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga., said. In the absence of action by Republicans, there could be a move by Democrats to formally censure Greene on the House floor. "It is shameful that the Republican Conference continues to let her define their party, and dangerous that they refuse to expel her," he said in a statement. " I hope that if ... McCarthy truly believes that what Rep. Greene said was ‘appalling,’ he will join our effort to censure her.”Still, Westmoreland said House Republican leaders don't have great options.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaU.S. lawmakers plan to introduce a bill on Thursday that would create a tax credit for lower-carbon sustainable aviation fuel, which they hope will slash emissions of greenhouse gases from the aviation industry. The legislation, seen by Reuters, would impose a tax incentive of up to $2.00 for every gallon produced of sustainable aviation fuel, which can be made from feedstocks such as grease, animal fats and plant oils. It was not immediately clear whether the sustainable aviation fuel bill would have Republican support. While U.S. sustainable aviation fuel use has risen in recent years, it remains a fraction of the larger traditional petroleum-based jet fuel market. Producers of sustainable aviation fuel can earn the tax credit if the fuel achieves at least a 50% lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions reduction compared with petroleum-based jet fuel, according to the legislation.

Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

She said was concerned about several Republicans not wearing masks while sheltering in a secure room during the insurrection. In the days since the insurrection, Democratic Reps. Pramila Jayapal, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Brad Schneider, and Adriano Espaillat have tested positive for COVID-19. Rep. Stacey Plaskett says she opted not to shelter with Republican colleagues who weren't wearing masks during the Capitol insurrection last week and instead chose to risk running into the mob as she sought safety elsewhere. Plaskett briefly went down to the room, but quickly realized several Republican lawmakers weren't wearing masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Plaskett, a Democrat, isn't the only representative to raise concerns over Republicans in the House not wearing masks during the insurrection.

She told NBC Asian America that her Republican colleagues at the time prioritized loyalty to President Donald Trump over the safety of others. As the mob descended on the Capitol on Wednesday, Jayapal was in lockdown with about 100 other lawmakers. The contrast with the slowness of punitive measures against the rioters has its roots in the history of law enforcement, she said. Rather than protect communities of color, some of the earliest forms of law enforcement were intended to control the behaviors of people of color. "And so I think that was the history of the structures of law enforcement in this country, and I think that has continued to perpetuate through the system and into the sensibilities of not all but many who serve in law enforcement."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A third Democratic U.S. lawmaker announced a positive test for COVID-19 after being locked down for hours with other colleagues, including Republicans who did not wear face masks, to avoid the mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol. Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Bonnie Watson Coleman announced their positive test results on Monday and blamed Republicans for refusing to wear masks while isolated for hours in close quarters. U.S. lawmakers who refuse to wear masks in the Capitol should be fined and immediately removed from the chamber’s floor, Jaypal added. Watson Coleman, a 75-year-old cancer survivor, said she was awaiting results from a more comprehensive test after her rapid COVID-19 test came back positive. A handful of Republicans in the room did not wear masks, according to a Reuters eyewitness.

SEE NEW POSTSDeutsche Bank and Signature Bank cut future ties with Trump, after Capitol riots In the wake of the deadly riots on Capitol Hill last week, Deutsche Bank and Signature Bank have said they are cutting future ties with President Donald Trump. Trump has two outstanding mortgages with Deutsche Bank for a total of $340 million. In December, two of Trump's personal bankers at Deutsche Bank who were responsible for managing hundreds of millions extended to him over the years, resigned.
