(Reuters) - Twitter Inc, on Sunday, locked the account of Republican U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a political newcomer known for promoting the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory. Greene promoted online conspiracy theory QAnon in a 2017 video but later backtracked, saying it was not part of her campaign. Twitter suspended tens of thousands of accounts primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content after the violence in Washington earlier this month when supporters of Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol. After the attack, Twitter removed Trump’s account, which had 88 million followers, due to the risk of further violence. Trump, who has challenged the validity of Biden’s victory without producing evidence, initially praised his supporters but later condemned the violence.

Twitter suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., for 12 hours on Sunday, saying that she has repeatedly run afoul of the company's misinformation policy. "The account referenced has been temporarily locked out for multiple violations of our civic integrity policy," a Twitter spokesperson said. Following the riot at the Capitol earlier this month, Twitter has ramped up its crackdown on misleading and false information on its platform. Twitter's civic integrity policy states the company "will label or remove false or misleading information intended to undermine public confidence in an election or other civic process." A freshman lawmaker and a vocal supporter of Trump's efforts to overturn the election, Greene has previously expressed sympathy for QAnon, though she has since sought to distance herself.

Mr. Trump has talked to advisers about his contempt for Ms. Cheney in the days since the vote and expressed his glee about the backlash she is enduring in her home state. Privately, Republican officials concerned about possible campaigns for higher office by some of the high-profile backbenchers in the House who have railed against the election results and propagated fringe conspiracy theories. Among those figures are Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Andy Biggs of Arizona. All three states have Senate seats and governorships up for election in 2022. Just as striking, a number of mainline conservatives in the House are speaking openly about how much Mr. Trump damaged himself in the aftermath of the election, culminating with his role in inspiring the riots.

One House freshman is pushing to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, and another recounts being armed during the attack, further putting their colleagues on edge. But, Beyer said, the issue "that has the greater emotional impact is the sense that there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said she feared for her life, in part because she doubted the motives of unnamed colleagues who were sheltering with her. But she and over 30 other Democrats have signed on to a letter asking authorities to investigate the claim. The article also misstated what chamber of Congress the attacker of a Northern senator before the Civil War was from.

Some representatives now consider that lockdown a superspreader event, an instance in which an infected person passes the coronavirus to a disproportionate number of others. That situation prompted "a COVID superspreader event," she said — a circumstance in which one person infects a disproportionately large number of others. A superspreader event, then, refers to any instance in which an infected person passes the virus to more people than that average. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the ceremony a superspreader event. Jayapal told The Cut that Republican lawmakers "still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack."

President Trump's business is being hobbled . Trump's war on the nation's news media, his war on truth, his war on REALITY ultimately caused him to become the first US president to be impeached two times. Carlson also claimed that Trump voters have been "redefined as domestic terrorists" in the past week. One of her first guests, Ben Domenech, said that voting for impeachment was akin to telling Trump voters, "CNN's right about you." Some Trump voters are embarrassed by the past week's events, but many are still fully on board the cliched "Trump train."

Opinion | How the Republican Party Could Break
  + stars: | 2021-01-12 | by ( Ross Douthat | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
With this sense of persecution in the background and the Trump family posturing as party leaders, the voter-fraud mythology becomes a litmus test in many congressional elections, and baroque conspiracy theories pervade primary campaigns. Either way, under these conditions that party could really collapse or really break. The collapse would happen if Trumpists with a dolchstoss narrative and a strong Q vibe start winning nominations for Senate seats and governorships in states that right now only lean Republican. Alternatively, a party dominated by the Trump family at the grassroots level, with Greene-like figures as its foot soldiers, could become genuinely untenable as a home for centrist and non-Trumpist politicians. But if Biden governs carefully, if Trump doesn’t go quietly, if MAGA fantasies become right-wing orthodoxies, then the stresses on the Republican Party and conservatism could become too great to bear.

Some eight Republican senators and 139 Republican House members objected to the Electoral College vote confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. It prolonged and drew attention to a process that, for nearly every presidential election, has served as a rubber stamp. It served as a chance for Republican members to signal their fealty to Donald Trump above all else. Greene alleged that there was fraud or mismanagement in her home state's presidential election — but that her own vote tally remains accurate. Not long ago, calling for the overturning of a presidential election was seen as a risky activity.

Lawmakers in the US House of Representatives may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus while they sheltered during Wednesday's insurrection at the US Capitol. In a letter to lawmakers, Dr. Brian Monahan, the Capitol's attending physician, wrote that sheltering House members "may have been exposed to another occupant with coronavirus infection." Some House lawmakers were captured on video refusing to wear a face mask while they took shelter when the pro-Trump mob stormed the building. Monahan also advised House lawmakers to get tested for COVID-19 next week "as a precaution." Several lawmakers were seen in a video shared Friday by Punchbowl News refusing to wear face masks while lawmakers were sheltering in close quarters.

WASHINGTON — The stakes are clear, but the outcome is a toss-up in Georgia’s twin Senate runoff elections Tuesday that will determine control of the Senate and the launch trajectory of President-Elect Joe Biden's incoming administration. Both parties have pulled out all the stops in the monumental clash between Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock and Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Here are five things to watch as polls close at 7 p.m. At Monday's rally, Loeffler vowed to challenge the certification of Biden's Electoral College win in the Senate on Wednesday. Most observers expect both races to break the same way, but anything is possible and Democrats need to win both seats to flip the Senate.
