Officer Michael Fanone has said for weeks that he wanted to meet with McCarthy, who has opposed a commission and remained loyal to former President Donald Trump. Trump supporters clash with D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Brian Sicknick collapsed and died after engaging with the mob; a medical examiner ruled that he died of natural causes.

In addition to Sicknick, two police officers died by suicide in the days that followed.

In 1980, Senate Republicans won a majority for the first time in 26 years, breaking the Democrats’ hammerlock on the chamber. After Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked consideration of marquee voting rights legislation, Democrats are closer than ever to ending the filibuster. The eagerness of many Senate Democrats to abolish the filibuster reflects a case of epic legislative amnesia about the rule’s double-edged nature. Senate Democrats in 2019 used it to block construction of Trump’s border wall. Senate Democrats only feel differently now because they hold the majority and are frustrated by being on the other side of the coin.

U.S. President Joe Biden holds a news conference after the U.S.-Russia summit with Russia's President Vladimir Putin, in Geneva, Switzerland, June 16, 2021. U.S. President Joe Biden’s top economic aide, Brian Deese, said on Wednesday that the government needs to play a bigger role in supporting certain technologies and industries. That’s taking a leaf out of China’s playbook and a more organized version of former President Donald Trump’s America First policy . Deese said the pandemic was a wake-up call to make more products at home. The Senate recently passed a bill to spend $250 billion on research and development to better compete with the People’s Republic .

Blackstone Group CEO and Co-Founder Steve Schwarzman speaks at a Reuters Newsmaker event in New York, U.S., November 6, 2019. REUTERS/Gary HeNEW YORK, June 23 (Reuters Breakingviews) - The government taketh away, but the government giveth, too. Blackstone (BX.N) founder Steve Schwarzman said an increase in U.S. capital gains taxes may fuel a bonanza for private equity firms like his. As family owners look to cash out now to avoid paying higher taxes later, the industry with a trillion-or-so dollars of unspent firepower stands ready to help. Still, it’s a far cry from comments Schwarzman made a decade ago (and apologized for) when likening a potential tax code change to the invasion of Poland.

Does it seem to you that election season is starting … a little early? Shouldn’t we have one nice apolitical Fourth of July celebration before flinging everybody back into the fray? In New York City, they’re already counting the ballots for the Democratic mayoral primary. Super fast, except for the fact that the city’s new preferential voting system can create more delays than an airport security checkpoint. In California, everybody is going bonkers about having a recall vote on Gov.

Democrats push for voting rights for Black people in part because they know that Democratic electoral fortunes depend on defending Black voters. When Black voters are discriminated against, all Democratic voters are harmed. Manchin’s hopeful bill on voting rights is undermined by his own stubborn refusal to override the filibuster. Moreover, as discussed above, Republican disenfranchisement of Black voters is part of the reason that popular policies — like taxing the rich — can’t muster enough congressional votes. Even Manchin’s hopeful bill on voting rights is undermined by his own stubborn refusal to override the filibuster.

Black people represented the largest increase in traffic deaths last year than any other racial group, even as Americans drove less overall due to the pandemic, according to recently released data. An estimated 38,680 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2020 — the largest projected number of deaths since 2007, according the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The number of Black people who died in such crashes was up 23 percent from 2019, the largest increase in traffic deaths among racial groups, according to the administration’s report. Predominantly Black neighborhoods are less likely to have crossroads, warning signs and other safety mechanisms, he said. “You go to Black and brown communities, you go to lower-income communities and you don’t see many sidewalks.

But it will take “a few extra weeks” to include all Americans 18 and older to that group, Zients is to acknowledge. Through Sunday, 150 million Americans had been fully vaccinated, with 65.4 percent of adults having received at least a single dose. Now, though, the White House is planning to host a major Independence Day celebration at the White House, welcoming 1,000 members of the armed forces and frontline workers. “The new variant will leave unvaccinated people even more vulnerable than they are a month ago,” Biden warned last Friday as he touted 300 million vaccination doses administered since he took office. Biden is traveling to North Carolina Thursday for a vaccine-focused event, while First Lady Jill Biden on Tuesday travels to Jackson, Miss.

WASHINGTON — The Trump Organization is suing New York City over its decision earlier this year to cancel the company's contract to operate an 18-hole golf course in the Bronx borough with views of the Manhattan skyline. The lawsuit said that after the riot, de Blasio “denounced President Trump in the most inflammatory terms” and “characterized the Trump Organization as 'an organization led by a criminal.'" The Democratic mayor said that the city had a right to sever a contract with any company that is engaged in criminal activity. "Inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity," he said at the time on MSNBC. The filing defended the company's right to keep running the golf course by listing “accolades and top rankings from major publications,” including statements from several professional golfers, such as Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.

The American Rescue Plan increased the Child Tax Credit from $2,000 to $3,000 per child aged 6 to 17, and $3,600 for children under 6. The White House has viewed efforts like Monday’s as critical to sustaining political momentum for further economic initiatives like his stimulus plan. Biden’s American Families Plan would seek to extend the Child Tax Credit through 2025, something he also touts in the video. The Child Tax Credit “Day of Action” comes as part of a larger “Month of Action” around ensuring Americans receive the Covid vaccine. The White House has been working aggressively to pre-empt any Republican arguments that a rebounding economy, in particular, is coasting on policies implemented in the Trump administration.

Today, Couy Griffin is divorced, disparaged by family and confronts a political recall drive, a state corruption investigation and federal charges. In Washington, prosecutors unveiled photographs of Griffin climbing a toppled fence and another barrier to access the Capitol steps. Griffin is one of thousands of Trump loyalists in public office who are charting an uncertain future ahead of the 2022 election cycle. He also says Cowboys for Trump is a for-profit company, not a political group. Donnie Reynolds, a 51-year-old sales associate at an Alamogordo hardware store, says Griffin is being targeted for ties to Trump.

REUTERS/Ann WangTAIPEI, June 20 (Reuters) - Taiwan reacted with an outpouring of thanks to the United States for shipping 2.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to the major semiconductor-producing island, more than doubling its arsenal as it deals with a rise in domestic infections. Taiwan has accused China of blocking at least one foreign vaccine deal with the island. Last week, 28 Chinese air force aircraft, including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers, entered Taiwan’s air defence identification zone, the largest reported incursion to date. Only around 6% of Taiwan's 23.5 million people have received at least one of the two-shot coronavirus vaccine regimen.

All of this contributes to the political environment Michigan Republicans must weigh as they decide whether to seek their party’s nomination for governor in 2022. “Michigan and national Republicans’ repeated failures to recruit a viable candidate for governor is no accident,” Rodericka Applewhaite, a spokesperson for the Michigan Democratic Party, said. Two other top Republicans, former Rep. Candice Miller and state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, also have said they’re not interested.

China, which considers Taiwan an integral part of its territory, has repeatedly offered to send coronavirus vaccines to the island, which has been battling a spike in domestic infections. "Our vaccines do not come with strings attached," the official said, adding Taiwan had "faced unfair challenges in its efforts to acquire vaccines on the global marketplace." A deal for Taiwan to purchase vaccines from Germany's BioNTech SE (22UAy.DE) fell through this year, with Taiwan's government blaming pressure from Beijing. "We believe that these attempts by China to block purchases, for political purposes, are reprehensible," the senior Biden administration official said.

Mr. Biden’s list almost certainly is the same as the one publicly posted by the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency last year. U.S. expectations that Mr. Putin will take a proactive hand against Russia’s for-profit hackers are also probably correspondingly low. But calling Mr. Putin’s attention to the list also calls the attention of Russia’s hackers to it, for whom surviving in business means being sensitive to the Kremlin’s ill-defined and often retroactive red lines. Mr. Biden’s threat of retaliation would have been heard too and suggested to Russia’s hackers a new source of risk to their domestic immunity. Admittedly this is speculative, but it smells like the U.S. is playing a three-cornered game with Mr. Putin and Russia’s hackers.

"The results are clear: America is starting to look like America again, and entering a summer of joy and freedom," the White House said in a fact sheet. The news comes days after the United States marked a grim milestone, surpassing 600,000 COVID-19 deaths. It said more than 175 million Americans had now received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, and 55% of adults were fully vaccinated. Addressing racial imbalances in vaccination rates remained a huge and continuing concern, the White House said, but pointed to gains there as well.

The U.S. Department of Commerce may issue subpoenas to collect information about certain smartphone, tablet and desktop computer software applications. Then the agency may either negotiate conditions for their use in the United States or ban the apps, according to people familiar with the matter.

The new order could end up capturing more apps than the final Trump orders because of a stronger legal framework.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Wednesday said it did not expect the Federal Reserve’s projections for earlier post-pandemic interest rate hikes to significantly alter its own forecasts for longer-term rates and the cost of borrowing to fund planned investments. A White House official welcomed the Fed’s forecast for 7% growth in the U.S. economy given an improved health situation, saying it showed that President Joe Biden’s push to accelerate vaccinations and get people back to work was paying off. That was still well below historic norms, and meant Biden’s budget plans remained fiscally prudent, the official said. The White House official also welcomed what Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s forecast for a “very strong labor market” and his observation that economists had consistently underestimated the amount of capacity during the last expansion and recovery.
