A judge dismissed Katie Hill's lawsuit against the Daily Mail over the outlet publishing nude photos of her. The former congresswoman accused the judge of thinking "revenge porn is free speech." "I sued the Daily Mail for their publication of my nonconsensual nude images," Hill wrote in the tweet on Wednesday. "Today, we lost in court because a judge - not a jury - thinks revenge porn is free speech." In late October, the Daily Mail published nude photos of her with a campaign aide, which prompted the Hill's lawsuit against the tabloid.

The suit was delayed after Trump filed an appeal saying that a sitting president could not be sued. The court found the issue was now "moot" since Trump has already left office. The New York Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that Summer Zervos can file a defamation lawsuit against the former president which she originally filed in 2017. Zervos initially filed the defamation lawsuit against Trump, who was then president, in 2017. While lower state courts rejected the argument, New York's top state court paused the case in March 2020.

Parler said it alerted the FBI more than 50 times to threats at the Capitol ahead of the January 6 riot.

However, the news of the historic Democratic victories in Georgia were quickly overshadowed by a pro-Trump mob ransacking the Capitol. His father was famed civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was assassinated when King was just 10 years old. But there was little time to celebrate on Wednesday as his attention — and the world's — shifted to a pro-Trump mob ransacking the Capitol. Black activists also called out the disparity between the treatment of the pro-Trump mob and peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters. King also said that the "double standard" that the pro-Trump mob faced when compared to the treatment of Black Lives Matter protesters must be addressed.

All the key battleground states in the 2020 presidential race have now certified their election results, cementing President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump. After all the votes come in, election officials thoroughly canvass the votes cast before elected officials can be seated. One day later, the two battleground states of Pennsylvania and Nevada also certified their statewide presidential results. While many states allow campaigns to request recounts after certification, it's much harder for campaigns to legally challenge election results after states have certified those results.
