Democratic lawmakers and Black Lives Matter activists — aghast at the killing of George Floyd — marched together last summer in the name of police reform. Some Black Lives Matter activists say the White House and lawmakers within Congress have continued to shut them out of these negotiations. But many activists fear that the bill lawmakers are considering is watered-down and not a true reflection of what activists want. Democratic Rep. Cori Bush, a former Black Lives Matter organizer, is serving her first term in Congress. Bush, who was once a Black Lives Matters organizer near Ferguson, Missouri, has had frequent conversations with activists, including those in the Movement for Black Lives, which is being financially sponsored by the Common Counsel Foundation.

Elizabeth Warren told Insider she'll introduce a bill to ban lawmakers from individual stock trades. Sen. Elizabeth Warren plans to introduce a new bill to ban members of Congress and other top federal officials from trading individual stocks. Numerous members of Congress have come under scrutiny for their stock trades in recent months. The stock trades of Sen. Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina, have been the subject of significant scrutiny during the past year. Malinowski maintains that he has no control over his day-to-day financial affairs, leaving stock trades and the like to a financial advisor.

FILE PHOTO: Workers arrive for a shift at the GM truck assembly plant amid the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in Silao, Mexico May 22, 2020. The request for review marks the first time any country has used the Rapid Response Labor Mechanism in USMCA, which allows countries to target labor rights violations at specific factories. “Our trade agreements aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on if they are not enforced to defend workers in Mexico and here in the United States,” Pascrell said. The USMCA trade deal was rewritten to require that effectively 40% of the value of all Mexican-made vehicles be made in the United States or Canada. “In requesting this review, the United States clearly sends the message that worker rights must be respected,” U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said in a statement.

Sen. Cory Booker and other Democrats want local police to stop enforcing federal immigration law. Should the Biden administration fail to act, the lawmakers are prepared to fall back on new legislation, "The PROTECT Immigration Act," repealing the federal government's authority to deputize state and local law enforcement. Departments in nine states also directly enforce administrative warrants from US Customs and Immigration Enforcement." President Donald Trump, however, expanded the program, signing 23 agreements with local law enforcement in Texas alone. But he has thus far declined to terminate 287(g) and related programs, such as "Secure Communities," which allows local law enforcement to share arrested individuals' fingerprints with ICE.

Marcia Fudge to become the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, opening up Ohio's 11th Congressional District.

The Senate has confirmed Attorney General Merrick Garland with bipartisan support. In the 2010-11 Supreme Court term, she clerked for Chief Justice John Roberts, an appointee of President George W. Bush. Garland's clerks have landed in prominent roles elsewhere in the Justice Department and broader Biden administration. The longtime Justice Department official Monty Wilkinson served as acting attorney general while Garland awaited confirmation. It's been updated to reflect Garland's Senate confirmation on March 10.

Former President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could last for years. Trump could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. By doing so, the now ex-president opened himself up to federal, state, and local prosecution for election-law violations, several election-law experts told Insider. Whether Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr does anything is another matter. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed in late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether the company violated election laws.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Mob Members Tour of Capitol Before Riot The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. The latter option may be more appealing to Mr. Biden, but it could undercut Democrats’ argument that Congress must move urgently to impeach and try Mr. Trump. Speaking from Delaware on Thursday to introduce his sweeping economic plan, Mr. Biden urged lawmakers to come together and pass additional relief. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud.

Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud.

Mr. Sanford’s arrest was unrelated to the death of a Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, who was said to have been struck in the head by a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials. Later in the day, charges were unsealed against a man accused of beating a police officer on the Capitol grounds with a flagpole flying the American flag. “Everybody in there is a treasonous traitor,” Mr. Stager said, in an apparent reference to the Capitol, according to a video obtained by the F.B.I. The flurry of arrests and investigations added an air of nervous activity to a city that already seemed to be under siege. The area around the National Mall on Thursday was crammed with military vehicles and cut off from its surroundings by imposing lengths of metal fencing, creating what the Secret Service agent in charge of inaugural security called “a bubble that is safe and secure.”

More Arrests Made Amid New Calls for Investigation of Capitol Attack

The flurry of arrests and appeals for inquiry came as the House brought a historic second impeachment charge against President Trump and federal law enforcement officials continued to examine whether the assault on the Capitol included coordinated efforts by small groups of extremists and was not merely a mass protest that spiraled out of control. All of this took place as official Washington remained in a defensive crouch, with much of the city surrounded by protective fencing and armed troops camped inside the Capitol complex. Led by Representative Mikie Sherrill, a New Jersey Democrat and former Navy pilot, more than 30 lawmakers called on Wednesday for an investigation into visitors’ access to the Capitol on the day before the riot. Separately, the inspector general’s office of the Capitol Police said it was opening a potentially wide-ranging inquiry into security breaches connected to the siege. The Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan federal watchdog agency, signaled that it would look into what role, if any, members of Congress may have played in inciting the mob of Trump supporters who breached metal barricades and shattered windows on Jan. 6, seeking to overturn the results of the election.

REUTERS/Leah Millis/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - A 75-year-old U.S. lawmaker on Monday said she had tested positive for COVID-19 after being locked down to avoid a mob attacking the U.S. Capitol last week, saying she believed she was exposed while sheltering in place with maskless colleagues. Some 200 people, including scores of House members, sheltered for hours in a closed room where a number of Republicans did not wear masks. “She believes she was exposed during protective isolation in the U.S. Capitol building as a result of insurrectionist riots,” Watson Coleman’s office said in a statement. “You have to anticipate that this is another surge event,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield told McClatchy News on Friday. “These individuals all are going in cars and trains and planes going home all across the country right now.

GOP Rep. Tom Reed told CNBC on Thursday that President Donald Trump's last-minute opposition to the coronavirus relief package approved by Congress earlier this week is hurting struggling Americans. The $900 billion bill, paired alongside a government-funding measure, was passed with veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate. The $900 billion package extends a pandemic-era expansion of jobless benefits that would otherwise expire Saturday. "The people who we negotiated this $900 billion for are waiting for this relief," Reed said. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., also is expected to propose a new temporary spending bill that would disentangle State Department and foreign aid funding from the larger spending package.

A key sticking point is a condition introduced by GOP Sen. Pat Toomey on Thursday, demanding strict limitations on Federal Reserve emergency funds. Toomey, a GOP Senator from Pennsylvania, on Thursday raised objections over Federal Reserve lending, which he said had the backing of party leaders. He proposed an extra condition, to restrict Federal Reserve emergency lending programs, which Republicans argue were a temporary measure that is no longer needed. Toomey said that allowing the Federal Reserve program to continue beyond December 31, when it is supposed to wind up, would mean it would become a lender of first resort, violating the key function of a federal reserve bank. A Democratic request for emergency funding provided through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which Republicans oppose.

Congress faces more pressure than ever this week to pass another coronavirus relief bill. Members of both parties have stressed the need to send relief before they go home for the holidays. The bipartisan proposal does not include a second $1,200 check. Democrats have backed the $908 billion plan as the framework for a final deal. However, Sanders warned that he would do so this Friday if Congress has not agreed to send another direct payment.

It's not a perfect bill, but it is a compromise bill that can bring people together," Rep. Tom Reed, D-N.Y., said on "Squawk Box." The Problem Solvers Caucus this week unveiled a $908 billion coronavirus stimulus plan with a bipartisan group of senators, including Sens. They're now at $900 billion supporting this bipartisan, bicameral package that we put together," he said.

Giuliani is representing President Donald Trump's presidential campaign in numerous failed election lawsuits and has floated conspiracy theories about election fraud. Experts say that disbarment is unlikely, though Giuliani could face lesser sanctions from state bar associations and courts. "Mr. Giuliani's multitude of suits may have crossed the ethical line and in this charged political climate could lead to the ultimate penalty for a lawyer: disbarment." In recent years, Giuliani has been a personal lawyer to President Donald Trump but rarely appears in court in person. And if he's found guilty of a federal felony, he'd be automatically disbarred if the same conduct would be a felony under state law, Gillers said.

This Trump truth commission could investigate the White House's COVID-19 response, the government's separation of immigrant children from their parents, and the blurring of lines among Trump's governmental, political, and business interests, among other matters. Sen. Joe Manchin, a centrist-minded West Virginia Democrat, says the formation of a Trump truth commission is "a good idea." Whether a bipartisan Trump "truth commission" is created may depend on whether President-elect Joe Biden wants one. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque/File PhotoTaking cues from BidenBiden has not publicly addressed the notion of a Trump truth commission. Several Democratic senators told Insider they were either reserving judgment on whether to create a Trump truth commission — or deferring to Biden.
