Airlines are stepping up their security measures on flights to Washington, DC ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. Alaska Airlines is enacting the most stringent policies that restrict ticket sales on Washington flights and when passengers can leave their seats. That list includes American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. Spirit Airlines is banning firearms on flights to Baltimore as the airline does not fly to either or Washington's local airports. Harteveldt told Insider that no such restrictions were enacted post-9/11 and no other airline told Insider that alcohol sales would be put on hold.

Republican senators who voted to acquit Trump in February — in a hollowed-out trial without witnesses — misread the president, completely seemingly convinced that impeachment alone might temper his actions. Trump’s Senate enablers allowed Trump to escape the consequences of his abuse of power by their near-unanimous vote to acquit last February. If the Senate convicts Trump, a simple Senate majority can bar him from ever again holding any federal office. And unlike Trump, Nixon resigned when Republican congressional leaders told him that he would likely be convicted in a Senate impeachment trial. Duty demands that he be convicted by the Senate and, by a Senate vote, barred from ever again holding the power of the presidency.

ET Live Updates: Biden Plans Major Expansion of Vaccinations and Virus Relief President-elect Joe Biden unveiled an ambitious $1.9 trillion spending package. That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. Mr. Romney was the only Republican last year to vote to convict Mr. Trump when the House impeached him for pressuring Ukraine to incriminate Mr. Biden. Speaking from Delaware on Thursday to introduce his sweeping economic plan, Mr. Biden urged lawmakers to come together and pass additional relief. “The very health of our nation is at stake,” Mr. Biden said, speaking from Delaware.

A majority of Americans believe that President Donald Trump's trial in the Senate should begin immediately, according to a new Insider poll. In a recent Insider survey, we asked if the Senate should have a trial before or after President Trump leaves office. A breakdown of those responses:27.8% of respondents said the Senate trial should take place immediately and should vote before Trump leaves office. Despite a majority of Americans wanting the Senate trial to immediately begin, the Washington Post reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not bring the trial to the Senate before Trump leaves office next week. Should he be convicted at any point, a simple majority vote could bar him from ever holding a federal office again.

In the first quarter, the Atlanta-based airline expects revenue to fall by 60% to 65% from a year ago and its scheduled flight capacity to shrink by 35%. Business travel should pick up in the second half of the year but remain muted for a period of time, he said. FIRST ANNUAL LOSS SINCE 2009Delta, the first U.S. airline to post 2020 results, reported a $12.4 billion loss - its first since 2009 - on operating revenue of $17 billion. The company expects to retire nearly 400 jets through 2025 as it simplifies its fleet to nine families of aircraft. The U.S. government will hopefully lift its international travel ban by the spring or summer if the virus is contained, Bastian said.

“The party is going to be totally broken” if it abandons Trump, Foster says, predicting Trump loyalists will spin off into a new third party. And the choice confronting party leaders as they ponder a renewed impeachment effort – whether to continue backing Trump or make him a pariah – will almost certainly cost the party voters it needs to win future elections, Republican party officials and strategists say. ‘GET OVER IT’Trump has at times been defiant amid the blowback from the Capitol riot. “The president defeated the Republican establishment in 2016 – the Republican Party, in terms of the voters, the movement, is very representative of the president’s agenda,” says Boris Epshteyn, a strategic advisor to Trump. It allowed Trump’s Republican critics to say, “we told you so - Trump is a threat,” Bruesewitz says.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is considering a vote to convict President Donald Trump in an impeachment trial, Republican sources told Insider. "It's the time to shiv him and then brace for the fallout," said one GOP source with ties to the Trump White House. Sources close to the White House say the president's team remains in chaos after last week's riot. They also don't believe McConnell has the votes to convict him, according to another Republican close to the White House. "He's only going to get stronger," one of the sources close to the White House said, "if he survives all this."

Administrator Dickson for taking this clear stand for our safety and security,” said Sara Nelson, the head of the Association of Flight Attendants, which represents nearly 50,000 flight attendants at several airlines, including United Airlines. “This will help serve as a deterrent to unruly passengers who had been bucking the rules of aviation safety.”On Thursday, a Black American Airlines flight attendant was subjected to “racial epithets” on a hotel shuttle in Washington, according to the union that represents the airline’s flight attendants. On Friday, Alaska Airlines banned 14 passengers from future flights, describing their behavior on a flight from Washington to Seattle as “rowdy, argumentative” and harassing. Several other airlines have also reported banning passengers from future flights in recent days, too. Airline passenger bans are independent from the federal “no-fly list,” which is maintained by the F.B.I.’s Terrorist Screening Center.

The pair has given $470,300 this year, with 99% of that money going to Republican candidates. But simply examining large donations from retired founders does not lead to a complete or accurate picture of either Home Depot or Lowe's' political leanings. He has made the occasional one-off donation to other, largely Republican, candidates and campaigns, including now-Sen. Mitt Romney's presidential run, Jeb Bush, and David Perdue. So, while the home improvement giants and the more high-profile founders in the industry may favor Republican candidates at the moment, the partisan donation gap may be starting to balance out. And when it comes to political contributions, Home Depot and Lowe's both happen to reflect the conservative tendencies of many prominent retailers.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced Wednesday that it will stop issuing warnings to unruly passengers. Federal officials tightened restrictions on unruly airline passengers following several disruptive incidents on flights in and out of Washington, DC last week. "The FAA has seen a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior," the agency said in a statement. Instead, the FAA will "pursue legal enforcement action against any passenger who assaults, threatens, intimidates, or interferes with airline crew members." In light of incidents like these, airlines have taken action by banning unruly passengers and ramping up safety efforts.

GOP elected officials lost thousands of Twitter followers over the weekend, as the company cracked down on QAnon accounts in the aftermath of the Capitol Hill riots. 94% have lost followers since January 6th. They and other banned accounts, Twitter explained, were "engaged in sharing harmful QAnon-associated content at scale and were primarily dedicated to the propagation of this conspiracy theory across the service." The vast majority of Republican officials lost followers after Twitter began purging QAnon-related accountsInsider analyzed the Twitter followers of 248 GOP congressmen and state governors, using data collected from Social Blade.

Voters are divided, largely along partisan lines, over whether President Donald Trump should be removed from office, a new NBC News poll shows. Nearly 9 in 10 Democrats say Trump, who was impeached by the House of Representatives on Wednesday, should be convicted by the Senate. Fewer than 1 in 10 Republicans say the same. It asked whether respondents believed Trump should be impeached and removed based on "what you have seen, read, or heard about Donald Trump and the events at the U.S. Capitol last week." Democrats in the House of Representatives impeached Trump in late 2019 after he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Biden and his family.

Shorn of GOP support after the riot at the US Capitol, President Trump is facing a three-part reckoning in Congress. If convicted, Congress can move again to bar him from public office for life, the ultimate disgrace. Conviction in a Senate impeachment trial requires a two thirds majority, meaning Democrats would need at least 17 Republicans to vote with them for Trump's removal. Overturning this would require a unanimous Senate vote, an unlikely prospect given the pockets of senate support for Trump, according to legal expert Markus Wagner. Another obstacle might be the widespread support Trump still has among grassroots Republicans.

The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

Airlines and airports are stepping up security ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration next week. American Airlines is also planning to ramp up safety measures ahead of the inauguration. The Fort Worth-Texas based airline last week had increased airport staffing and suspended alcohol service on flights in and out of the D.C. area as well as moving crews to airport hotels. Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney was heckled and called a traitor on a Washington D.C.-bound Delta flight. On an American Airlines flight last week passenger projected Trump 2020 on the wall of a dimmed cabin as travelers got into a heated political argument, shouting and cursing at each other.
