WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI on Wednesday arrested a Florida-based member of the right-wing Proud Boys group for his alleged role in breaching the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, the Justice Department said. He is the latest person in a growing number of people with ties to the Proud Boys to face charges surrounding the attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump. According to the criminal complaint, the FBI said Biggs actively encouraged members to travel to Washington, D.C., and communicated directly with the group’s leader Enrique Tarrio. Tarrio was arrested prior to the riots on charges of destruction of property and possession of a firearm magazine. The FBI said that Biggs and fellow Proud Boy Dominic Pezzola can be seen in video footage entering the Capitol, with Pezzola breaking a window.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI on Wednesday arrested a Florida-based member of the right-wing Proud Boys group on charges of storming the U.S. Capitol two weeks ago in a crowd of Donald Trump supporters challenging his election defeat, the Justice Department said.

Tarrio was arrested before the Jan. 6 riots on charges of destruction of property and possession of a firearm magazine. The FBI said that Biggs and fellow Proud Boy Dominic Pezzola can be seen in video footage entering the Capitol, with Pezzola breaking a window. Also appearing in court on Wednesday is Samuel Fisher, whom the FBI said breached the Capitol and also posted photos of himself with guns.

Expressing relief at the end of four years of Trump’s “America First” policy, the EU’s chief executive and chairman told the European Parliament that shaping new global digital regulation together was paramount. “This new dawn in America is the moment we’ve been waiting for,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said. “This political power, unbridled power held by the big internet giants must be reined in,” Von der Leyen said. European Council President Charles Michel, who chairs EU summits in Brussels, said transatlantic priorities should also include combating COVID-19 and climate change. “Let’s build a new founding pact for a stronger Europe, for a stronger America and for a better world,” he told EU lawmakers.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country beset by deep political divides and battered by a raging coronavirus pandemic. The ceremony will unfold in front of a heavily fortified U.S. Capitol, where a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building two weeks ago, enraged by his false claims that November’s election was stolen with millions of fraudulent votes. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time. It will require approval from a deeply divided Congress, where Democrats will hold slim advantages in both the House and Senate. The trial could serve as an early test of Biden’s promise to foster a renewed sense of bipartisanship in Washington.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country beset by deep political divides and battered by a raging coronavirus pandemic. U.S. President-elect Joe Biden speaks during an event at Major Joseph R. "Beau" Biden III National Guard/Reserve Center at New Castle County Airport in New Castle, Delaware, U.S. January 19, 2021. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time.

Bettman, via Getty ImagesAs a senator, Mr. Biden commuted to Washington by train, a routine that allowed him to return home to his children each night. As vice president, Mr. Biden oversaw the implementation of the 2009 stimulus bill and later headed the administration’s cancer moonshot program. Mr. Biden fell flat in the first nominating contests, finishing in fourth place in Iowa and fifth place in New Hampshire. Despite his early difficulties in two overwhelmingly white states, Mr. Biden counted on receiving strong support from Black voters in later contests.

Raphael Warnock won a runoff election to become just the 11th Black U.S. senator in history and only the second Black senator from the South since Reconstruction. Revels’s path to the United States Senate coursed through the sacred pulpits of the Black church and the towering bluffs of a military encampment along the Mississippi River. Illinois has been home to three: Carol Moseley Braun, the first Black woman to be a U.S. senator, Barack Obama and Roland Burris. This is the history that Raphael Warnock stepped into when he declared his run for the Senate. Warnock recognized the unique obstacles and hazards that Black politicians and Democrats face in Southern states that have been reliably Republican for decades.

Hours before Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the presidential oath of office, President Trump offered one more made-for-TV moment. A little past 8 a.m. on Wednesday, the cable news channels and major broadcast networks were trained on images of Marine One, the presidential helicopter, as it swooped past the Washington Monument and settled onto the South Lawn of the White House, preparing to spirit the image-conscious Mr. Trump away on one last ride. “It is a stunning moment,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper, as cameras captured the president, in his trademark oversize red tie, and Melania Trump, in a jet-black Chanel ensemble, approaching the aircraft. A Fox News anchor called the first lady’s outfit “a very Audrey Hepburn look.”The aerial view seen on every major network originated from a camera perched at the top of the Washington Monument. It provided a rare and dramatic tableau that would not have been out of place in the opening credits of “The Apprentice,” complete with sunshine reflecting off the surface of Marine One as it lifted into the sky, the soon-to-be-ex-president in tow.

WASHINGTON — Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, taking office at a moment of profound economic, health and political crises with a promise to seek unity after a tumultuous four years that tore at the fabric of American society. The ritual transfer of power came shortly after Kamala Devi Harris was sworn in as vice president by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, her hand on a Bible that once belonged to Thurgood Marshall, the civil rights icon and Supreme Court justice. Ms. Harris’s ascension made her the highest-ranking woman in the history of the United States and the first Black American and first person of South Asian descent to hold the nation’s second highest office. In his Inaugural Address, Mr. Biden declared that “democracy has prevailed” after a test of the system by a defeated president, Donald J. Trump, who sought to overturn the results of an election and then encouraged a mob that stormed the Capitol two weeks ago to block the final count. But he called for Americans to put aside their deep and dark divisions to come together to confront the coronavirus pandemic, economic troubles and the scourge of racism.

“This man represents the Treasury Department,” a deadpan Mr. Biden said to his host as he gestured to a gray-suited member of his delegation. “He’s brought hundreds of millions of dollars.”The room broke up in laughter: It was clear the vice president hadn’t come with a briefcase of cash to pay off Greece’s debts. But his joke captured a deeper truth — in 2011, many still viewed the United States as the ultimate guarantor of the international order. And Mr. Biden clearly saw himself as a steward of that legacy, his easy self-confidence the product of four decades as a globe-trotting senator. As Mr. Biden took the oath of office on Wednesday, vowing to “repair our alliances and engage with the world once more,” the question for many overseas is whether they will see this man of the world anytime soon.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday plans to extend the payment pause on federal student loans through at least September 2021. The U.S. Department of Education announced in March that borrowers wouldn't have to pay their student loan bills or worry about interest accruing for 60 days. That relief has repeatedly been extended but was set to expire at the end of this month. The continued pause on payments and accruing interest on federal student loan debt gives further relief to 42 million student loan borrowers.
