At least three top Republicans plan to miss President Donald Trump's farewell ceremony on Wednesday. Vice President Mike Pence is unable to make it due to logistical issues, per The Washington Post.

The January 6 insurrection on the Capitol had some familiar echoes of the November 2000 uprising on Miami-Dade County's presidential recount, an incident that came to be known as the Brooks Brothers riot. The Capitol insurrection was both far more far more violent and had more serious physical consequences for the place where the attack occurred, although unlike the Brooks Brothers rioters, this group failed to stop the counting of votes. The Brooks Brothers riot revived a new blueprint for electoral disputes, one that openly deployed violence and intimidation to frighten officials into discarding legitimate votes. Like the Brooks Brothers riot, it took place on a Wednesday. Unlike the Brooks Brothers riot, the pro-Trump insurrectionists, despite their efforts, did not succeed in suspending the counting of votes and, in fact, hardened the resolve of lawmakers to finish the count in defiance of mob violence.

A Black Capitol Police officer who was suspended after being seen wearing a "MAGA" hat while defending the Capitol from the January 6 siege did so to try to free fellow officers, the Wall Street Journal reported. The footage then shows Johnson handing over his bullhorn to the protesters, who helped clear the path up the crowded Capitol steps to let Johnson get inside. After the group cleared a path at the entrance, several officers wearing body armor and face shields were seen exiting, with protesters and rioters thanking them as they left while others chanted, "USA! The Capitol police leadership has been harshly criticized for their failure to adequately prepare for the insurrection. Three officers have been suspended in connection with the events of January 6.

The episode prompted concerns that if a Democrat also won in 2024, for example, a Republican-controlled Congress could go through with fully rejecting a state's electors and even overturn an election. It's well within the realm of possibility that Democrats in the 2022 mid-terms could lose their slim control of both bodies of Congress, setting up the potential for a bid to overturn states' electoral votes. Erin Schaff/AFP via Getty ImagesCan Congress unilaterally overturn election results? Congress would have needed to reject multiple states Biden won to overturn his 306-232 electoral vote defeat of Trump. Consider a closer election where Congress only needed to reject one state's slate of electors to overturn the winner's victory, leaving no candidate with a clear majority of electoral votes.

Sen. James Lankford, a Republican from Oklahoma, wrote an apology letter to his Black constituents on Thursday for originally planning to vote to object to slates of presidential electors in Congress. Lankford was part of a group of GOP senators who intended to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential race and demand a commission to investigate unspecified election irregularities. Lankford dropped his plan to do so after the January 6 insurrection on the Capitol, but acknowledged that his actions caused "a firestorm of suspicion" among Black communities in his state. Lankford continued: "But my action of asking for more election information caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. They also deal with higher chances of being removed from the voter rolls and less reliable US mail delivery.

Secret Service agents assigned to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner aren't permitted to use any of the six bathrooms in the couple's Washington, DC, home in the wealthy neighborhood of Kalorama, according to The Washington Post. Since 2017, US taxpayers have shelled out roughly $100,000 — which amounts to about $3,000 a month — for the government to rent a nearby studio apartment so the Kushners' Secret Service detail can use its bathroom. The Secret Service eventually came to a more permanent and comfortable solution for the agents — on the taxpayer's dime. "It's the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom," one law enforcement official told the Post. At some times, they also drove about a mile away to a Secret Service command post at the Naval Observatory, where the Pences live, to use the bathrooms there.

House Democrats are set to vote on an article of impeachment for President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection on the US Capitol. As House members began to debate on Tuesday evening, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee released a 50-page report outlining the imminent need for Trump to be impeached and removed from office. Even though Trump is set to leave office on January 20, Democrats contend that he poses an "imminent threat" to the nation's safety. "The timeline of events demonstrates that President Trump encouraged and incited the violent and seditious acts that occurred. Moreover, the lawlessness that resulted from President Trump's conduct was entirely foreseeable by the President," the report says.

Some representatives now consider that lockdown a superspreader event, an instance in which an infected person passes the coronavirus to a disproportionate number of others. That situation prompted "a COVID superspreader event," she said — a circumstance in which one person infects a disproportionately large number of others. A superspreader event, then, refers to any instance in which an infected person passes the virus to more people than that average. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the ceremony a superspreader event. Jayapal told The Cut that Republican lawmakers "still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack."

Article 2, Section 2, Clause 1: The president "shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment." President Bill Clinton was impeached during his second term and acquitted by the Senate. Johnson sought a second term but didn't get enough votes at the 1868 Democratic National Convention. However, had he gotten enough votes and won a second term, he could have run for a third term (and more) because the 22nd Amendment hadn't been passed at the time. Editor's note: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated President Trump is the first to be impeached in his first term.
