Reporters covering the Biden administration are frustrated with the White House's "quote approval" rules. "Every reporter I work with has encountered the same practice," another reporter told Politico. Reporters are usually unwilling to push back on or reject interviews from the White House, considering the competitive nature of the industry. One reporter told Politico: "If you start fomenting an insurrection, keep me updated." "We're never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access," she continued.

Police clear the U.S. Capitol Building with tear gas as supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump gather outside, in Washington, January 6, 2021. Lawmakers in the House hope to reach an agreement as soon as this week on the creation of a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 invasion of the U.S. Capitol, a senior Democratic aide told CNBC on Tuesday. If a deal is struck in time, a bill to create the commission could be brought to the House floor by next week, according to the Democratic aide. The development on Capitol Hill, first reported by Punchbowl News, follows a monthslong partisan logjam over the details of the 9/11-style investigative panel. Pelosi also tasked retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore with leading a review of Capitol security.

Progressives are staging a power-play to make the one-year expansion permanent, but some moderate Senate Democrats have raised concerns. If Republicans recapture a majority in either chamber of Congress, they could block Biden's agenda. Indeed, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell last week told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that is his goal. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said he knows Republicans might decide to again sit on the sidelines and watch Democrats struggle to pass Biden's agenda on their own. For it to work, every one of the 50 Senate seats controlled by Democrats must vote together.

"The total resident population number was at the lower end of the estimates, and several states with large Latino populations did not do as well. Arizona, Florida and Texas — states with large Latino populations — each ended up with one fewer House seat than had been projected. California and New York, which also have large Latino populations, each lost a seat. Karen Battle, chief of the Census Bureau's population division, said people should wait for more data and not jump to conclusions based on April's state population totals. The Asian population is the fastest-growing segment of eligible voters, according to the Pew Research Center.

The co-chair of Facebook's Oversight board criticized Facebook for wielding "too much power." Michael McConnell, co-chair of the Facebook Oversight Board, said on Sunday the social media site "exercises too much power" as it decides on whether to indefinitely ban former President Donald Trump's account. The board was trying to bring principles of the First Amendment into the decision of banning Trump's Facebook account, he said. And it is the job of the Oversight Board to try to bring some discipline to that process," he said. Facebook launched its independent Oversight Board late last year in an effort to give more attention and resources to its content-moderation decisions.

McConnell backtracked from his prior red line on the cost of an infrastructure package, bumping it to $800 billion. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is upping the cost of an infrastructure package that the GOP is willing to consider to $800 billion, backing away from a recent red line he put at $600 billion. "The proper price tag for what most of us think of as infrastructure is about six to 800 billion dollars," McConnell said in an interview with Kentucky Educational Television that aired Sunday evening. McConnell did not budge on his resistance to amend the Republican tax law, and said user-fees like increasing the gas tax could be used to finance new federal infrastructure spending. But a group of Senate Republicans spearheaded by Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia pitched a $568 billion infrastructure plan last month to kickstart negotiations with the White House.

Sen. Jodi Ernst, an Iowa Republican, said some in her party "are trying to silence others." Her comments came as House Republicans seek to purge Rep. Liz Cheney from leadership. A Republican senator is speaking against "cancel culture" — not on the left, this time, but within her own party. "Cancel culture is cancel culture, no matter how you look at it," she said. "But I still think we shouldn't be trying to cancel voices," Ernst said.

In the last week, Trump tried to reframe language around "the big lie" — which has been used to describe his claims about a stolen election — and made reference to "vote dumps." This past week alone, Trump released about a half-dozen statements questioning the legitimacy of last fall's election. And the message from people who want to get rid of Liz Cheney is to say 'it's just time to focus on the future and move on.' Cheney could be voted out of her leadership position — one tasked with leading House GOP messaging — as early as Wednesday. If you look at polls, there's a whole group of folks that agrees with Liz Cheney.

Gonzáles Brebe, who is from Honduras, told MSNBC that when she was separated from her children in September 2017, she felt like authorities at the border saw her as a smuggler. The Trump-era policy was designed to dissuade migrants with children from coming to the United States from Mexico. Her family lived in hiding, she said, and her husband and eldest son, 18 at the time, successfully made it to the United States. "They told me it would only be five days, and then they would reunite us so we could be together," she told MSNBC. One thing she learned from the ordeal, Gonzáles Brebe told MSNBC, is "I don’t want to ever separate from them again."

Donald Trump's obsession with getting revenge is frustrating close allies, Washington Post reported. Trump allies said they wish he was working on protecting his policies and helping the GOP instead. The report cites interviews with 13 former White House officials, advisors, and allies, most of whom asked to remain anonymous. Another report earlier this year claimed he told GOP donors he wanted to raise $2 billion for the library, which he plans on building in Florida. His indecision about his own run is another reason allies have become "frustrated" in the last few weeks, according to a CNN report from last month.

This week, Facebook's Oversight Board upheld the suspension of Donald Trump's Facebook account. Earlier this week, Facebook's Oversight Board announced its decision on the future of ex-president, Donald Trump's account. On Wednesday, the independent board ruled to uphold the social network's suspension of Trump's account but said the company must review its decision within six months. For that reason, there is nothing Trump and others denied access to social media platforms can do about it. But without such restrictions, Facebook are free to limit speech and that is arguably private censorship by a social media site," Barendt said.

Co-chair of Facebook Oversight Board defends decision to uphold Trump ban

New York (CNN) Michael McConnell, co-chair of the Facebook Oversight Board, defended the board's recommendation to continue the suspension of former President Donald Trump's Facebook account over statements he made in the immediate aftermath of the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol. "Mr. Trump is subject to the same rules on Facebook as everyone else and the oversight board held that this was in fact a violation, and thus Facebook was justified in taking them down." McConnell did note that the board also found Facebook's rules are in "shambles" and have made recommendations to the company to increase transparency. "They needed some time because their rules are shambles, they are not transparent, they are unclear, they are internally inconsistent," McConnell said. He added, "we gave a series of recommendations about how to make their rules clearer and more consistent."

Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday compared the GOP to the ill-fated Titanic passenger liner. Kinzinger backs Cheney's criticism of former President Trump's conduct on January 6. GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Sunday likened the Republican Party to the Titanic as House Conference Chair Liz Cheney's potential ouster from leadership continues to roil lawmakers. During an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation," Kinzinger said that the GOP was "in the middle of this slow sink." In a second letter, the family members accused Kinzinger, who joined the Air Force in 2003, of working against the country by questioning Trump.

Bezos is also the subject of a new book, "Amazon Unbound," by Brad Stone, which hits on Tuesday. This is a different category of coverage than, say, the classic Forbes lists, or the daily Bloomberg Billionaires Index of the world's richest people. But as the world's richest men and women have an outsized impact on the rest of us, they merit an outsized amount of attention and scrutiny too.

Business InsiderDonald Trump's new blog shows he is now just "shouting into the void," since being banned by Facebook and Twitter, say experts. Former President Donald Trump's new "communication platform" launched this week was widely-mocked as little more than a "glorified blog." The site — which was revealed on Tuesday — followed Trump's longtime adviser Jason Miller promising that Trump would soon create a social media platform that would "completely redefine the game" on social media. There are, of course, some benefits to Trump launching a one-way communications platform rather than a fully-fledged social media network. "Trump is promoting Trump on the Trump blog on the Trump website ... Trump's blog appears to be reaching the people he wants to reach and doing what he wants it to do."

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department confirmed Friday that it sought the phone records of three Washington Post reporters for calls they made during three months in 2017 while reporting on Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election. The subpoenas sought records that would show who the reporters called and how long their conversations lasted but not what was discussed. Justice Department spokesman Marc Raimondi confirmed the content of the letters in a statement. A department spokesman said the records of the Post reporters were sought in 2020, when William Barr was still serving as then-President Donald Trump's attorney general. But the Justice Department has maintained that it would seek journalist records as a last resort.
