Revels’s backers argued that he was in fact a lifelong citizen of the United States, because he was born to free Black parents. After more objections and heated debate, the efforts to block Revels’s admission were voted down by the antislavery Republicans who dominated the Senate. Revels showed no embarrassment whatever, and his demeanor was as dignified as could be expected under the circumstances. The abuse which had been poured upon him and on his race during the last two days might well have shaken the nerves of any one.”Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts spoke up in Mr. Revels’s defense. “All men are created equal, says the great Declaration,” he said, but “the Declaration was only half established by Independence.

Will Install a Trump Loyalist as Its General Counsel Vice President-elect Kamala Harris plans to resign from her Senate seat on Monday. The Justice Department, under pressure from Mr. Trump, has sued Mr. Bolton to recoup his profits from book. Representative Jamie Raskin, center, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a meeting of House impeachment managers on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. He also claimed, without further explanation, that Mr. Trump was “trying to heal the nation.” But even as Mr. Graham lobbied his Republican colleagues to vote against convicting Mr. Trump and offered a stream of flattery about the president’s success in office, he rejected the suggestion that Mr. Trump should pardon any members of the mob before leaving office. Without specifically mentioning Mr. Trump, Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris drew an implicit contrast with his administration’s dismissive attitude toward expert opinion.

WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating whether foreign governments, organizations or individuals provided financial support to extremists who helped plan and execute the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, one current and one former FBI official told NBC News. Those payments were documented and posted on the web this week by a company that analyzes cryptocurrency transfers. Payments of bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, can be traced because they are documented on a public ledger. "In at least one instance, a Russian proxy claimed that ANTIFA members disguised themselves as supporters of President Trump, and were responsible for storming the Capitol building." But the cryptocurrency payments prompted the FBI to examine whether any of the money was used to find illegal acts, which, if true, raises the possibility of money laundering and conspiracy charges, the FBI official said.

James Murdoch, son of Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch, had attacked news outlets "that propagate lies" for their role in unleashing "insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years." "Those outlets that propagate lies to their audience have unleashed insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years," the youngest Murdoch told the Financial Times on Friday. James Murdoch, the youngest son of Rupert Murdoch, has publicly attacked "media property owners" and news outlets for their role in promoting false election claims that helped lead to the deadly riots in the US Capitol last week. The youngest Murdoch son has since turned his attention to his foundation called Quadrivium, which according to its website, aims to promote initiatives related to democracy, voter participation, and climate change among others. "Many media property owners have as much responsibility for this as the elected officials who know the truth but choose instead to propagate lies.

White House officials blame Rudy Giuliani for not one, but two impeachments of President Donald Trump, according to a report by The New York Times. The president was impeached over his role in the deadly Capitol riots, which were largely fueled by Trump supporters' unsubstantiated belief the election was "stolen," an idea Giuliani has strongly pushed. Though White House officials are reportedly angry with Giuliani, one of Trump's advisors tweeted on behalf of the president and praised the former mayor. White House officials blame Rudy Giuliani for not one, but two impeachments of President Donald Trump, according to a report by The New York Times. However, while Trump may be on the mend with Giuliani, White House officials are "universally angry" with Giuliani, according to The Times, for encouraging the president to take actions that led to both of his impeachments.

In his address to the nation Thursday evening, President-elect Biden said about the coronavirus pandemic, "The crisis of deep human suffering is in plain sight." Earlier this week, the US set another single-day death record when 4,462 people died in one day, according to Johns Hopkins data. But you wouldn't necessarily know that by scanning the front pages of newspapers or the homepages of major news websites this week. When scanning CNN.com earlier this afternoon, there were no coronavirus stories in the top half of the website. And while the vaccine rollout is gradually improving, the situation right now is, frankly, very alarming and urgent...Read More

The outgoing Sen. Kelly Loeffler is co-owner of The Atlanta Dream. In response to the stance of their team owner, Williams said the players were frustrated, disappointed and confused. There were calls for Loeffler to stand down and a team statement on July 10, signed by all the players, read : "We are the women of the Atlanta Dream. But at the start of August, without saying another word to criticize their owner Loeffler, Dream players began publicly supporting her political rival. Speaking about the players' support, Warnock told USA Today : "I think it was helpful.

Listen and subscribe to “The Argument” from your mobile device:Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Play | RadioPublic | Stitcher | RSS FeedIt’s impeachment season all over again on “The Argument,” and Michelle and Ross debate whether Republicans will, at long last, turn their backs to President Trump, or confirm that their party is resolutely his. Will Mitch McConnell really consider delivering enough Republican votes to convict Trump? The duo discuss the events of the last week and a half and the deepening fracture in the Republican Party, and Michelle is surprised to long for “the party of cruel Ayn Rand-ism” in exchange for “Qanon and guerrilla warfare.” Ross admits how wrong he’s been in analyzing violent extremism in recent years. Then, the hosts take up the question of deplatforming Trump, and the rabid hordes he foments. And finally, Ross suggests you find some escapism in a grim, dark, revisionist fantasy.

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.

Republicans in Congress started criticizing the Biden rescue plan on Friday. President-elect Joe Biden's economic rescue package is starting to run into opposition from Republicans on Capitol Hill, lessening odds of a smooth passage in Congress that the new administration is urgently seeking. Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, set to be the ranking Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, railed against the $1,400 boost to stimulus checks along with a $15 minimum wage provision. More Republicans are likely to balk at the relief plan's colossal spending levels as well as the $15 minimum wage provision. "A $15 minimum wage is a nonstarter for most Republicans even during a growing economy," Brian Riedl, a conservative budget expert at the Manhattan Institute, told Insider.

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

is Jeffrey Sprecher, who is married to Senator Kelly Loeffler, the Georgia Republican who lost her seat in last week’s runoff election. Ms. Loeffler ran as an unabashed supporter of President Trump, and up until the mob stormed the Capitol she planned to object to the Electoral College count. She “was one of the loudest amplifiers of falsehoods about supposed voter fraud in Georgia,” according to NPR. Mr. Sprecher also condemned “the lawlessness that transpired at the Capitol” in a statement last week, and ICE told DealBook that it was pausing donations from its PAC. The company’s political entanglements are unique, but similar issues are springing up at other firms.

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. On Friday, Alaska Airlines barred 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 barring passengers from future flights in recent days, too. In widely shared episodes, Trump supporters also heckled two Republican senators, Mitt Romney of Utah and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, as they traveled to and from Washington. American Airlines on Wednesday said it was taking steps to ensure the safety of its crews and customers ahead of the presidential inauguration next week.

Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told The Hill on Tuesday that he was referencing "Game of Thrones" when he told a crowd at Trump's January 6 "Save America" rally that "we will have a trial by combat." Speaking to The Hill on Tuesday, Giuliani told reporter Brett Samuels that he was referencing "Game of Thrones," which he called the "famous documentary about fictitious medieval England." Giuliani went on to say that his "trial by combat" comment was not actually a call to violence. McCarthy told Trump during a heated call on Monday according to Axios that the mob was "not antifa — it's MAGA. "Kevin McCarthy doesn't know what the hell he's talking about," Giuliani told The Hill.

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.
