A Queens, N.Y. man who allegedly made repeated threats to murder Democratic members of Congress on social media, including threats to murder them at President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, was arrested Tuesday morning by FBI agents and NYPD officers. Nearly a decade later, he called President-elect Joe Biden a communist on social media while inciting others to take up arms during the inauguration, according to the FBI. In one post, he wrote that he wanted Trump to “hold a public execution of Pelosi aoc schumer etc.,” according to court documents. In the video, Hunt spoke directly to the camera saying, “[T]hey’re gonna come after us, they’re gonna kill us, so we have to kill them first .

A Georgia lawyer boasted that he and fellow rioters "kicked in Nancy Pelosi's office door" and the House speaker dodged being "torn into little pieces," according to a criminal complaint. Calhoun said the "mob" searched through Pelosi's "inner sanctum," according to his Facebook post cited in the affidavit. "And get this - the first of us who got upstairs kicked in Nancy Pelosi's office door and pushed down the hall towards her inner sanctum, the mob howling with rage," Calhoun wrote, according to the FBI. "Crazy Nancy probably would have been torn into little pieces but she was nowhere to be seen." Calhoun, who practices criminal and insurance law, was in good standing and has not been targeted for any discipline, according to Georgia Bar Association records.

12 National Guard members were removed from inauguration duty, including two for “inappropriate” comments or texts, a Pentagon spokesman told reporters in a phone briefing Tuesday. “We have two individuals that were identified as making inappropriate comments or texts,” said spokesperson Jonathan Hoffman. One was removed after fellow troops brought their comments to the attention of Guard officers. The other 10 troops were removed due to questions raised in security vetting conducted by the FBI, including a review of their criminal records and other information. It was too early to say if the 12 troops removed would be subject to disciplinary action or further investigation by law enforcement agencies, he said.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Janet Yellen, U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, urged lawmakers on Tuesday to “act big” on the next coronavirus relief package, adding that the benefits outweigh the costs of a higher debt burden. I believe they’ll pass it, we’ll see another big package and that’s a short-term positive but a long-term negative. Yellen will reportedly stress the need to “act big” and take advantage of low borrowing rates to address what many view as a K-shaped recovery. “Reports suggest that if asked, Yellen will disavow a weak dollar policy whilst affirming commitment to a market-determined exchange rate. Press comment suggests Janet Yellen intends to argue that the US should ‘go big’ on fiscal easing.

The unprecedented attack stunned the world, further bruised America’s standing in it and gave ammunition to U.S. adversaries globally. Aware of the damage, Blinken is set to put frequent emphasis on humility in his speech. China has assumed a larger global role, ranging from multilateral institutions to assisting development in Africa and Latin America.

FILE PHOTO: President-elect Joe Biden's nominee to be Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines speaks at his transition headquarters in the Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 24, 2020. REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Avril Haines, a former White House and CIA official whom President-elect Joe Biden chose for the top U.S. intelligence job, will tell Congress on Tuesday that she will continue tough U.S. scrutiny of China and press spy agencies to help resolve the COVID-19 crisis, a Biden transition official said. In testimony before a Senate Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing, Haines, Biden’s nominee for Director of National Intelligence, will declare that U.S. agencies must continue to collect intelligence to “support long-term bipartisan efforts to out-compete China — gaining and sharing insight into China’s intentions and capabilities, while also supporting more immediate efforts to counter Beijing’s unfair, illegal, aggressive and coercive actions, as well as its human rights violations,” the transition official said. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Haines also will tell senators that one of her missions would be to ensure that spy agencies’ “unique capabilities” are used to counter the worldwide COVID-19 crisis, “while also addressing the long-term challenge of future biological crises ... positioning us to detect future outbreaks before they become pandemics.”She is also going to say that the United States must strengthen cybersecurity, protect critical American infrastructure and use technology to improve intelligence, the official familiar with her testimony said. Haines will also indirectly distance Biden’s incoming administration from some intelligence agency pronouncements by the outgoing Trump administration, telling senators, “To safeguard the integrity of our Intelligence Community, the DNI must insist, that, when it comes to intelligence, there is simply no place for politics - ever.”A Democratic congressional official said that Haines’ confirmation process was expected to move rapidly, though some Democratic activists have raised questions about her role helping to manage the CIA’s response to investigations into the agency’s use of harsh interrogation techniques.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday to consider the nomination of Avril Haines, who was a national security official during the Obama administration, to become director of national intelligence. She would oversee 18 intelligence agencies, including the CIA and the National Security Agency. Among other things, the director of national intelligence oversees the presidential intelligence briefing process. But the director does not run covert operations ordered by the president — the CIA director retains that power. "To safeguard the integrity of our Intelligence Community, the DNI must insist that, when it comes to intelligence, there is simply no place for politics — ever," she will say.

Back then, he talked about how the focus of his first 100 days would be on reforming immigration policy, rebuilding alliances overseas and tackling climate change. Here is a breakdown of how Biden plans to tackle those issues starting on Day One. The Trump administration left distribution to the states, but Biden plans to broaden the federal government's role. Biden's team plans to set up federal sites for mass distribution, along with mobile vaccination centers for people in rural areas. Supplies of the vaccines, the components and the materials will also be an issue, and transition officials have said Biden plans to use the Defense Authorization Act to speed production.

President-elect Joe Biden's Covid Advisory Board member Dr. Celine Gounder slammed the Trump administration's piecemeal Covid response as some states across the U.S. scramble to get the vaccine doses they need. “I think we've already had too much of a patchwork response across the states," Gounder said in a Monday evening interview on "The News with Shepard Smith." Andrew Cuomo said the federal government is sending his state 50,000 fewer doses of the vaccine than the week before. On Monday, Cuomo sent a letter to Pfizer asking if the state of New York could buy vaccines directly from the company. "We will have distributed 250 million doses of vaccine by the end of April," said Azar.

Gold prices rose on Tuesday, off a 1-1/2-month low hit in the previous session, as the dollar slipped and hopes for further global stimulus underpinned the safe-haven metal. Spot gold rose 0.2% to $1,840.81 per ounce by 0226 GMT, recovering from its lowest since Dec. 2 at $1,809.90 hit on Monday. The movements in the U.S. dollar have been the best predictor of gold market moves in recent days," said Michael McCarthy, chief market strategist at CMC Markets. Making gold attractive for other currency holders, the dollar fell from a four-week high hit in the previous session. Gold is considered a hedge against inflation and currency debasement, likely to result from large stimulus measures.
