A Black Capitol Police officer who was suspended after being seen wearing a "MAGA" hat while defending the Capitol from the January 6 siege did so to try to free fellow officers, the Wall Street Journal reported. The footage then shows Johnson handing over his bullhorn to the protesters, who helped clear the path up the crowded Capitol steps to let Johnson get inside. After the group cleared a path at the entrance, several officers wearing body armor and face shields were seen exiting, with protesters and rioters thanking them as they left while others chanted, "USA! The Capitol police leadership has been harshly criticized for their failure to adequately prepare for the insurrection. Three officers have been suspended in connection with the events of January 6.

Regions Bank confirmed to Insider that the PAC of its holding company is the victim of nine counterfeit checks. During the 2020 election, the Regions Financial Corporation PAC spread hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions among dozens of politicians — both Republicans and Democrats. Nevertheless, thieves made off with $31,550 from the federal political action committee of Regions Financial Corporation, the holding company of Alabama-based Regions Bank, according to new documents filed with the Federal Election Commission. On December 8, Regions Bank refunded the PAC the full amount that had been stolen, according to FEC records. King confirmed that Regions Bank, which operates in 16 states throughout the South and Midwest, has reported the theft to law enforcement in multiple states but declined to identify which ones.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a proclamation to extend measures meant to safeguard U.S. producers of large residential washers from import competition. The proclamation extends tariff-rate quotas on the washers and some washer parts that were first applied in January 2018.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday extended “safeguard” tariffs on large residential washers for another two years in a move that further shields domestic manufacturers such as Whirlpool Corp from import competition. The tariffs imposed in January 2018 were among the first that Trump imposed in his “America First” trade push, along with duties on solar panels, steel aluminum and Chinese goods. The washer tariffs, imposed under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974, were designed to shield American manufacturers from import surges for three years and were originally due to expire on Feb. 8. In the months before Trump imposed the tariffs, South Korean producers Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics, which had battled U.S. anti-dumping tariffs for years, made commitments to open washer factories in the United States.

Trump relented and instead hunkered down at the White House to watch television images of the mob rioting he is accused of triggering. Trump’s last days in the White House have been marked by rage and turmoil, multiple sources said. The White House declined to comment for this story. If convicted by the Senate in a trial that would occur after he has left the White House, Trump could be banned from holding federal office again. “I would be floored if that were to happen,” another White House official said.

Both men, convicted in separate murders, are being held on death row at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. A split panel of judges at U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit overturned Chutkan’s stay by a 2-1 vote overnight on Wednesday. Lawyers for the two men asked the appeals court to reconsider the ruling by filing a petition on Thursday morning seeking a so-called rehearing en banc. Trump, a Republican and a long-standing advocate of capital punishment, oversaw the resumption of federal executions last summer after a 17-year hiatus as the novel coronavirus continued to spread. Death row inmates, at least two of their lawyers and multiple prison and execution staff have since become ill with COVID-19.

U.S. executes man with COVID-19, 12th under Trump administration

(Reuters) - The U.S. government on Thursday executed Corey Johnson, a convicted murderer, marking one of the final two federal executions planned under President Donald Trump’s administration, after the Supreme Court rejected a plea to allow him to recover from COVID-19. The Supreme Court’s conservative majority had earlier rejected a lower court’s ruling that the final two scheduled federal executions of Trump’s administration be delayed to allow the condemned men to recover from COVID-19. “The Eighth Amendment ‘does not guarantee a prisoner a painless death — something that, of course, isn’t guaranteed to many people’,” said the opinion, citing Supreme Court precedent. Trump, a Republican and a long-standing advocate of capital punishment, oversaw the resumption of federal executions as the coronavirus spread. Death row inmates, at least two of their lawyers, other prison inmates and multiple prison and execution staff have since become ill with COVID-19.

McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday. If Trump has left the White House, the Senate could convict him and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEThe article of impeachment - equivalent to an indictment in a criminal trial - charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” in his incendiary speech to thousands of supporters on Jan. 6. “High-ranking officials get fired for their speech all the time.”Trump’s team could also argue that holding an impeachment trial after he has left office would violate the Constitution. The House impeached Trump in 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress stemming from his request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter.

Indiana legislators this week introduced a measure that would ban conversion therapy for minors by licensed counselors. In 2018, Pence's press secretary, Alyssa Farah, insisted that he "has never supported conversion therapy and doesn't support it now." Buttigieg did not respond to a request for comment about the conversion therapy bill. In 2019, a federal judge struck down a two-year-old conversion therapy ban in Tampa, Florida, ruling that regulation of psychotherapy "is a state, not a municipal concern." Kruse and Raatz declined to comment about whether their bill is also intended to ban conversion therapy.

Republican Trey Trainor testifies before the Senate Rules and Administration Committee for a confirmation hearing to be a member of the Federal Election Commission in Washington on Tuesday, March 10, 2020. The Biden campaign declined to comment on how it would approach campaign finance reform if Democrats controlled Congress.

A man who was photographed holding a Confederate battle flag inside the U.S. Capitol last week during the riot was arrested Thursday in Delaware, two law enforcement officials said. The man, Kevin Seefried, was wanted by the F.B.I., which had sought help from the public to identify him and had widely circulated a dispatch plastered with images of him. In a bulletin, the agency said that it was looking for assistance to identify individuals “who made unlawful entry” into the Capitol, including the man with the Confederate flag, now identified by The New York Times as Mr. Seefried. The top federal prosecutor in Washington said this week that he expected the number of people charged with crimes tied to the Capitol riot to rise into the hundreds. On Wednesday, federal agents made more arrests in New York, Maryland, Texas and Florida, among them a firefighter from the town of Sanford, near Orlando.

Delta Air Lines is preventing passengers traveling to DC from checking firearms onto flights starting Saturday. Delta Air Lines is prohibiting passengers from checking firearms en-route to Washington D.C.-area airports as a precautionary move ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, the company said Thursday. In a statement, the FAA said it's seen a "disturbing increase" since the riots in passengers disrupting flights with threatening or violent behavior. At least 10,000 National Guard troops will be in Washington, D.C. by Saturday in an effort to increase security for the Jan. 20 inauguration, and many public areas have been designated as secure zones. "We are taking the extraordinary step of encouraging Americans not to come to Washington," D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Maryland Gov.

Government emails and documents exclusively obtained by Insider reveal an internal fight within the Trump administration over whether to create the poll worker recruitment website HelpAmericaVote.gov. The White House's Office of Management and Budget initially rejected the Election Assistance Commission's request to create the website. EAC officials immediately resubmitted their HelpAmericaVote.gov request. Adequate numbers of in-person election poll workers were essential to monitoring and assisting record numbers of voters during the 2020 elections. The EAC disputes OMB's assertions that its HelpAmericaVote.gov request fell below current standards.

“It’s a highlight, being able to come out and help the public out,” said Mr. Alfaro, a senior airman and medic with the 175th Air National Guard, whose normal duties are helping at health care centers in Maryland. As the pandemic continues to rage nationwide and a vaccine program to control it struggles, governors are increasingly turning to the National Guard to help expedite the process. At least 16 states and territories are using Guard members to give shots, drawing on doctors, nurses, medics and others skilled in injections. Many more states are using thousands more Guard personnel for logistical tasks, like putting together vaccine kits and moving them around, logging in patients and controlling lines at state vaccination sites. In West Virginia, for example, about 100 Guard troops are assisting with distribution across the state.

Deaths nationwide were 18 percent higher than normal from March 15, 2020, to Dec. 26, 2020. Excess deaths have peaked three times, so far, as have deaths from Covid-19. There are now excess deaths in every state, with surges in states like California, Colorado, Kansas and Ohio fueling record death tolls in recent weeks. During the period of our analysis, estimated excess deaths were 21 percent higher than the official coronavirus fatality count. Most of the excess deaths in this period are because of the coronavirus itself.

U.S. National Guard riot shields are laid out at the ready outside the U.S. Capitol Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., January 13, 2021. The incoming Biden administration has significantly ramped up security around his team ahead of the Jan. 20 inauguration. The riot at the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6 forced lawmakers to flee the inner chambers of the building, fearing for their lives. The biggest single security operation is in Washington, where Biden will be sworn in outside the Capitol next Wednesday. In Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers authorized National Guard troops to support security efforts in the state capital of Madison.
