The leader of the Oath Keepers will remain jailed ahead of his tentative July trial, a judge ruled Wednesday. Prosecutors allege Stewart Rhodes helmed a sweeping plot to lay siege to the US Capitol on Jan. 6. Rhodes' estranged wife told the FBI that she feared for her and her children's lives if he was released. Prosecutors have charged more than 760 people in the siege, but the Oath Keepers' case marks the first sedition charges filed. The government also cited the potential risk his release might pose for his co-defendants and other Oath Keepers charged in the attack.

A group of millionaires that advocates for progressive tax policies is backing primary challenges to two centrist House Democrats the organization believes are obstructing President Joe Biden's agenda. The Patriotic Millionaires, a group whose members have annual incomes of over $1 million or assets of over $5 million, is endorsing progressive Jessica Cisneros over Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas. It is also endorsing Rep. Lucy McBath, D-Ga., over Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, D-Ga., in a face-off that resulted from redistricting. Cisneros challenged Cuellar in 2020, and Cuellar won the primary by around 3 percentage points. McBath represents Georgia's 6th District, while Bourdeaux represents the 7th District.

A federal judge ordered a married couple who participated in the Capitol siege to serve 24 months probation. The Wilsons pleaded guilty last year to one count each of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in the Capitol building. "I know that what I did was wrong and I know that it was detrimental to the country," Zachary Wilson said at the sentencing hearing. When asked why he lied to the FBI about his role in the riot, Wilson replied: "I just panicked." Mehta then told Wilson that he was "lucky" not to have been charged with an additional count of lying to the FBI.

Democrats reacted to the news Wednesday that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, will retire with praise for his decision and discussion of a potential replacement, while some Republicans suggested that they will fight the next nominee. “If all Democrats hang together — which I expect they will — they have the power to replace Justice Breyer in 2022 without one Republican vote in support. Elections have consequences, and that is most evident when it comes to fulfilling vacancies on the Supreme Court,” Graham said. “Justice Breyer has led an exemplary and distinguished career in public service. He has always been a scholar and a gentleman whose record on the Supreme Court is solidly in the liberal camp."

Olivia Munn said she experienced "Zoombombing" during a virtual seminar she hosted for Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community members. “Zoombombing" is a form of online harassment in which someone hijacks a group video call to show something inappropriate or unexpected. Munn said the "zoombombing" occurred while she was on a call with the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) and Asian American beauty brand Cocokind to discuss how to mitigate and address violence toward the AAPI community. We were communing to celebrate, elevate and protect the AAPI community and we were subjected to a hate crime in real time.”“Cheap tactics like these won’t stop our quest for equality, equity, and to stop Asian hate," she wrote. Earlier this month, the death of Michelle Go, who died after she was shoved in front of an oncoming train in New York City, left the Asian American community feeling a sense of tragic loss.

Dominion Voting Systems says there's no "realistic possibility" of settling their defamation lawsuit with Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Mike Lindell. MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell told Insider on Tuesday that he will "never settle" with Dominion either. In August, Nichols denied attempts from Powell, Giuliani, and Lindell to dismiss Dominion's lawsuits against them. Lindell told Insider, claiming that "many new charges and lawsuits" will be brought against Dominion in the "next two to three weeks." Since Dominion filed its lawsuits against them in early 2021, Giuliani and Lindell have continued to double down on their baseless claims of voter fraud.

On January 16, a cluster of Afghan women marched near Kabul University to demanded the right to return to work and continue their education. A representative for the Kabul police did not respond to Insider's request for information on the location and condition of the young women. Afghan women march as they chant slogans and hold banners during a women's rights protest in Kabul on January 16, 2022. In addition, Afghan women have little resource if they experience domestic abuse – something that, women say, has been made worse by the soaring rate of unemployment and approaching famine this winter. They held signs urging Afghan women to "respect your worth" and saying that the protesters were not "representatives of chaste Afghan women."

Patty Murray and Richard Burr are proposing a bipartisan probe into the pandemic's origin and the US' response. A declassified version of its report found America's top intelligence agencies remained "divided on the most likely origin." If passed into law, this would not be the first panel to investigate the government's pandemic response. Murray chairs the Senate Health committee and Burr is the top Republican, giving their legislation a bipartisan stamp of approval that could greatly aid its chances in becoming law. The bill would require the Department of Health and Human Services to establish an advisory panel focused on communications during health emergencies.

(CNN) A virtual gathering of high-profile Asian American creators, including actress Olivia Munn, became the subject of their own discussion -- after the meeting was "Zoom-bombed" with anti-Asian images. Munn, the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum, and Asian-American beauty brand Cocokind had gathered to discuss efforts to stop discrimination against the AAPI community. "We were communing to celebrate, elevate and protect the AAPI community and we were subjected to a hate crime in real time," Munn wrote Monday. "While it disrupted our conversation, we later resumed because these malicious acts will not stop the conversation," both Cocokind and the NAPWF wrote. "We started our event with beautifully-spirited and powerful members of the AAPI community talking about our experiences and using our voices, and we will continue."

Rudy Giuliani's lawyers said in a court filing that he can't give Dominion documents for its lawsuit against him. In the same filing, Giuliani's lawyers corroborated that the FBI was in possession of his files. "These electronic files/data are no longer under Giuliani's possession, custody, or control." Dominion said it's seeking documentation surrounding the circumstances of Giuliani's media interviews where he falsely claimed Dominion manipulated election results. In the intervening months, prosecutors and Giuliani's attorneys have fought over whether some of the material taken by the FBI should be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Federal agents executed a search warrant at the Chicago-area headquarters of a national pop-up testing chain called the Center for COVID Control, a spokesperson for the Health and Human Services Inspector General said Monday. The Center for COVID Control has the same registered address as a laboratory called Doctors Clinical Laboratory that conducted hundreds of thousands of PCR tests using specimens collected by the pop-up testing company, according to a company spokesperson.

In light of growing complaints, the Center for COVID Control paused its business activities on Jan. 13. The pop-up testing company grew quickly in the fall of 2021 and swiftly expanded to 300 sites nationwide.

Newt Gingrich in an interview warned that Jan 6 committee members could be jailed. Trump allies are seeking to undermine the commission, portraying it as a partisan witch hunt.

In an op-ed in Newsweek last week, Gingrich accused the Democratic-majority panel of seeking to persecute ordinary conservatives.

“Regarding an interim deal, we will not negotiate in the press or comment on specific claims about the negotiations. An interim deal could slow down Iran’s nuclear program while giving negotiators more time to broker a full return to the 2015 agreement. An interim nuclear agreement with Iran could be a difficult sell in Washington and Tehran. Under a law passed after the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, any new nuclear agreement must be reviewed and approved by Congress before it can be implemented. The law, the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, gives Congress 60 days to do so.
