Russian President Vladimir Putin compared his crackdown on domestic dissent with the US prosecution of rioters who attacked the Capitol on January 6, attempting to use American unrest to deflect criticism of his actions. The comments came in a provocative interview with NBC ahead of his summit with President Joe Biden on Wednesday. "They're facing — they're looking— they're— they're looking at jail time, between 15 and 25 years. The Russian president went on to say that protesters arrested in Russia had violated the law. Russia has sought to exploit the domestic divisions in the US highlighted by the Capitol riot ahead of the Wednesday summit between Biden and Putin in Geneva.

Then President Donald Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16, 2018. "You are presenting it as dissent and intolerance towards dissent in Russia," Putin said.

With Jordan ErbPresident Joe Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and former President Donald Trump. TRUMP'S SHADOW: Former President Donald Trump hasn't made the Biden Department of Justice's work easy. The DOJ said it would reverse its long-standing practice and would no longer seize reporters' records in leak investigations. Top Trump allies like Rep. Matt Gaetz and Rudy Giuliani are under the microscope as well as President Joe Biden's son Hunter. The Justice Department is arguing it should take Trump's place in a defamation lawsuit: The magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll accused Trump of sexual assault.

The accused Capitol rioter seen propping up his feet on a desk inside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office is selling autographed pictures of himself to help pay for legal fees — but not that photo. Selling that Jan. 6 picture could also anger a judge, which is never sound strategy, the legal analyst added. The image of Barnett was shot by Agence France-Presse photographer Saul Loeb and is being distributed by Getty Images. Loeb, AFP and Getty could all possibly have copyright claims if that image were being sold or marketed without their permission. Barnett's lawyer, the photographer, wire service and distributor all could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday.

Now, the Capitol riot attendee is sending supporters a signed version of the infamous photo to raise money. A fundraising website in Barnett's name details is asking "patriotic" supporters to help fund his legal defense. The site is called "Richard 'Bigo' Barnett Legal Defense Fund" and details "The Trial of Richard Barnett," and "The Fight for America's Soul." In the filing, Barnett's defense team accused federal prosecutors of misquoting the defendant's note to Pelosi in a "deliberate attempt to mislead the court." According to the website, Barnett was fired because of "public pressure" after his arrest.

Republican lawmakers blasted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., over the weekend for comparing the House's mask mandate to the Holocaust. The Republicans who criticized Greene were among those who either voted to impeach President Donald Trump this year or, in addition, voted to strip Greene of her committee assignments. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who was recently ousted from GOP leadership after she continued to refute Trump's electoral falsehoods, lambasted Greene's comparison as "evil lunacy" in a tweet. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., one of three House Republicans who voted both for Trump's impeachment and to strip Greene of her committee assignments, tweeted that Greene's remarks amount to "Absolute sickness." A CNN survey this month found that fewer than half of House Republicans would say they had been vaccinated, compared to 100 percent of House Democrats.

This reflects the high stakes of cases stemming from the worst violence at the Capitol in modern history, which left five people dead. Prosecutors routinely seek to resolve cases through plea bargains. But legal experts said it is relatively early in this process for either prosecutors or defense lawyers to be reaching quick deals. Moreover, without evidence provided under plea bargains, federal prosecutors may have a harder time building cases against leaders of the violence on more serious charges such as conspiracy or violation of laws intended to fight organized crime. Douglas Jensen of Des Moines, Iowa, faces charges including violent entry of the Capitol and disrupting government business.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office offered a response: Get your members vaccinated against Covid-19 first. Brian Monahan, Congress's attending physician, said Wednesday that the House rules were "entirely consistent" with CDC guidance. On Wednesday, McCarthy, R-Calif., and a group of Republicans introduced a resolution seeking to change the rules and allow lawmakers to be maskless on the House floor, citing the recent CDC guidance. McCarthy's resolution came one day after a group of Republicans staged a protest on the House floor, violating the rule by going maskless. CDC guidance says that it's only safe for people who have received their final shot, and allowed two weeks to lapse, to congregate without a mask.

Janet Yellen spoke to the Chamber of Commerce to pitch Biden's infrastructure plan. She urged them to support corporate tax hikes — something the Chamber spoke out against in March. Biden expressed willingness to compromise on the size of the tax hike but remains firm on keeping them. Now that the entirety of President Joe Biden's $4 trillion infrastructure plan has been unveiled, his administration is canvassing for support. On Monday, Yellen delivered a speech to the Chamber of Commerce, which supports the interests of businesses, urging them to support Biden's infrastructure plan.

3 House Republican came against an opponent who has aced the conservative purity tests that used to matter inside the party. For traditional conservatives, the contrast seemed to be evidence of the Republican Party abandoning its commitment to ideological principles and conservative policy. “I believe that voters determine the leader of the Republican Party and President Trump is the leader that they look to,” she said after the vote. “I support President Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office boosted the ongoing quarrel between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., as the ongoing divide could put a dent in Republican efforts to take back the House next fall. That comment comes as the divide between McCarthy and Cheney, the third-highest-ranking House Republican, appears to be reaching a boiling point following the Capitol riot. Cheney has refused to back down from her criticisms of former President Donald Trump, despite growing pressure from other Republicans. Speaking with "Fox and Friends" on Tuesday, McCarthy said "there's no concern about" Cheney's impeachment vote from fellow House Republicans. While Cheney has emerged as Trump's most powerful House Republican critic, an attempt in February by Trump allies to strip her of her leadership post failed overwhelmingly, 145 to 61.

McConnell rejected Pelosi's idea for Justice Ginsburg to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. The forthcoming book "Madam Speaker" sheds more light on Pelosi's disdain for McConnell. McConnell, however, rejected the idea, arguing there was no precedent for a Supreme Court justice to lie in state in the Rotunda. As Punchbowl noted, Justice Ginsburg ended up lying in state in Statuary Hall on the House side of the Capitol, not under the Rotunda. Page's book also says that Pelosi calls McConnell "Moscow Mitch" because "she knows it gets under his skin," Punchbowl reported.

BIDEN MAKES A MASSIVE PITCH: President Joe Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure plan seeks to reorient the US economy with a "once-in-a-generation investment" that redefines what is considered infrastructure. One of the most important parts may be what's not in it: Traditionally, user taxes like a gas tax fund transportation infrastructure. Biden pitched infrastructure as an area for bipartisan agreement: But early Republican reaction suggests this may be a tough sell. This could mean Biden needing near-unanimous Democratic support: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's majority has shrunk to just three votes.

Mike Segar | ReutersSome Senate Democrats on Friday criticized President Joe Biden's decision to launch an airstrike Thursday night in Syria without conferring with all of Congress. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., on Friday requested a briefing from the Biden administration on the decision-making behind the airstrikes. "The American people deserve to hear the Administration's rationale for these strikes and its legal justification for acting without coming to Congress. Offensive military action without congressional approval is not constitutional absent extraordinary circumstances," a statement from Kaine's office read. "Congress should hold this administration to the same standard it did prior administrations, and require clear legal justifications for military action, especially inside theaters like Syria, where Congress has not explicitly authorized any American military action," Murphy said in a statement Friday.
