The CEOs of Twitter and Parler were at odds with each other Saturday, each posting on their own network about Apple's decision to ban Parler. Before the ban, Parler had been the most downloaded app. On Parler, CEO John Matze responded by posting a screenshot of Dorsey's tweet and adding his own comment. "Yeah, we were number one until the fake news rage mob at Twitter and your anti-competitive friends went after us," Matze wrote. Like Twitter, Parler users can also sign into the network on the web.

ET Presidential Transition Live Updates: Push to Impeach Trump Continues to Gain Momentum Representative Ted Lieu said that the article of impeachment drafted by him and other House Democrats had drawn over 190 co-sponsors. Representative Hakeem Jeffries and other members of New York’s congressional delegation have called for swift impeachment of President Trump. “A second impeachment, only days before President Trump will leave office, is as unnecessary as it is inflammatory,” the lawmakers wrote. If the House did impeach, and the Senate put Mr. Trump on trial, at least 17 Republicans would most likely have to join the Democrats to win a conviction. Senator Patrick J. Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, said President Trump had effectively “disqualified himself” from ever running for office again.

On Thursday, the Chinese Embassy in the US posted a tweet claiming that Uighur women were no longer "baby-making machines" because of the eradication of extremism. The tweet, posted on Thursday, drew widespread condemnation for claiming that Uighur women have had their minds "emancipated" and are no longer "baby-making machines." Uighur women are regularly subjected to pregnancy checks, unwanted IUD devices, forced abortions, and sterilization, the news agency also reported. The article's implication that Uighur women are now more "confident and independent" was condemned by several high profile figures. Although the Chinese Embassy tweet has since been removed, the article remains on China Daily's Twitter feed.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

Chip Roy of Texas objected to seating 67 elected House members from battleground states today, in response to his colleagues that plan to object to certifying the presidential election results. Roy said "it would confound basic human reason if the presidential results were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped without public scrutiny." At least 140 House Republicans are planning to vote against certifying the presidential election results on Wednesday, though the effort cannot affect the results of the vote in any US state.

ET Live Updates: Georgia Official Blasts Trump for Repeating Falsehoods on Eve of Two Critical Senate Runoffs It was like “Groundhog Day,” a top election official said of once again having to debunk President Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud. Gabriel Sterling, a top election official in Georgia, delivered a scathing refutation on Monday of President Trump’s false claims of voter fraud. “I wanted to scream,” he said of his reaction to the call between Mr. Trump and Mr. Raffensperger. There are also concerns about the potential for Mr. Trump to use Monday’s appearance to mostly talk about himself, particularly after the release of a recording of a call between Mr. Trump and the state’s top elections official. Mr. Nunes received the honor in a ceremony on Monday, and Mr. Trump is likely to bestow it upon Mr. Jordan next week.
