The order was given despite an intel report detailing potential violence at the Capitol.

CNN first reported about the watchdog report on Thursday, revealing more failures on the part of law enforcement in the January 6 siege. The watchdog report, titled "Review of the Events Surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, Takeover of the U.S. Capitol," will be reviewed during a congressional hearing on Thursday, The Times reported.

Out of 1.7 million fully vaccinated people in Michigan, 246 tested positive for COVID-19. Less than 250 of the 1.7 million fully vaccinated people in Michigan have tested positive for COVID-19, state officials said Monday, a finding that supports the findings of clinical studies that the vaccines are extremely effective.
