Companies debarred by the federal government are not supposed to receive these low-interest federally backed loans, according to the requirements for the PPP program. The SBA’s inspector general’s latest report said it found “serious concerns about improper payments” in the PPP program, including money going to debarred companies. “I’m hopeful that the incoming Administration will implement timely measures to improve oversight.”Dodging requirementsSince the PPP program began, it has required companies seeking loans to confirmthey have not been debarred. But the SBA said it is examining loan forgiveness applications and would reject requests from any debarred company it finds. It was approved for a $300,000 PPP loan even though it has been debarred since 2012.

Since Trump appears unwilling to stop them, the responsibility falls to the Republican state legislators who have reliably embraced and enabled Trump for the last four years. In Michigan, armed protesters occupied the state Capitol, and a group of terrorists plotted to kidnap and possibly kill Democratic Gov. Staying silent as extremists plan their attacks on capitols cannot be an option for Republican state lawmakers any longer.

Historically, Democrats have told Civil Rights activists that their calls for justice have cost the party electorially. The recommendations of the 1968 Kerner Commission and Obama's policing commission were hardly implemented, so what makes this time different? After telling civil rights leaders to wait on calls for police reform until after the Georgia runoffs, Biden promised the civil rights leaders that he would look into issues surrounding policing in a new commission. It also was direct about the need to reign in police abuses and called on departments to stop random "stop and frisk style" searches. But Johnson, despite passing landmark civil rights and anti-poverty legislation, stopped short of carrying out the Commission's recommendations.

A Republican lawmaker in Montana has introduced a pair of bills targeting transgender youth. Montana State LegislatureFuller told Montana Public Radio that, as a former women’s soccer coach, he believes allowing transgender girls to play on women’s teams is unfair. Readings for both Montana bills were rescheduled from Wednesday to Jan. 20 to allow for public comment. Republicans, who currently control both chambers of the Montana state Legislature, will have until April to pass the measure this legislative session. “Make no mistake: these bills target and attack trans youth and will cause them serious and lasting harm,” ACLU of Montana Executive Director Caitlin Borgmann said in a statement.

One House freshman is pushing to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, and another recounts being armed during the attack, further putting their colleagues on edge. But, Beyer said, the issue "that has the greater emotional impact is the sense that there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said she feared for her life, in part because she doubted the motives of unnamed colleagues who were sheltering with her. But she and over 30 other Democrats have signed on to a letter asking authorities to investigate the claim. The article also misstated what chamber of Congress the attacker of a Northern senator before the Civil War was from.

Democratic Party members are largely unified in their support for President-elect Biden's COVID-19 stimulus. The issue of $2,000 checks – now reduced to $1,400 — has caused some complaints, but the party appears to be largely backing Biden's plan. Congressional Democrats are largely unified in their support for President-elect Joe Biden's COVID-19 stimulus plan, contrasting sharply with the GOP divisions on the previous package. This third stimulus plan includes $1,400 relief checks for Americans, which would make a total of $2,000 when combined with the $600 in the most recent package. There has nonetheless been dissent over the $1,400 checks from progressives, who argue that the new stimulus checks should be $2,000 by themselves.

Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson lashed out at one of his favorite targets on Thursday night: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Carlson also accused Ocasio-Cortez of being a hypocrite for praising Capitol Police officers as "heroic," while supporting reallocating law enforcement funds to social services. "She likes the cops now despite the fact they're white supremacists," he said. Carlson's account of the Capitol riot flies in the face of overwhelming evidence and law enforcement's charges. And Carlson has long been accused of sympathizing with white supremacists, whom he has occasionally disavowed.

A man who was seen in the Capitol holding a Confederate flag during last week’s riot by supporters of President Donald Trump turned himself in to authorities on Thursday. — FBI (@FBI) January 11, 2021Both men are set to have a virtual appearance in front of a federal judge either Thursday or Friday, the FBI said. Investigators allege that video evidence showed Hunter Seefried punched out broken glass in a window to get access the Capitol. The sight of the Confederate flag in the halls of the Congress raised particular alarm for citizens and lawmakers because of its affiliation with secession, civil war and slavery. The congresswoman on Wednesday posted an Instagram video detailing her experience during the Capitol riot, calling it the “tragedy of white supremacy” that some would rather watch the country burn than have equality for all.

But that debate turned into a rout — 197 House Republicans opposing Trump’s impeachment, versus 10 voting for it. Now 10 House Republicans supporting their president’s impeachment wasn’t insignificant: It’s more than the House Democratic defections in Bill Clinton’s impeachment (five) and House GOP defections in Trump’s first impeachment (zero). But as impeachment moves to a Senate trial, the question we have: Are 10 House GOP defections worth 20 Senate GOP defections? Eight out of 10: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment whose congressional districts were won by Donald Trump. 1: The number of House Republicans voting for impeachment who also objected to certification of the electoral votes last week.

A Dolly Parton statue may be erected at the Tennessee Capitol

Born and raised in the Smoky Mountains, she's waxed poetic about her "Tennessee mountain home" in her recordings. It's fitting, then, that she be honored with a statue in front of the Tennessee Capitol. If it's commissioned, the Parton sculpture will face the historic Ryman Auditorium , a music venue where she's played throughout her career. A sculpture of Parton would be a decidedly less controversial addition to the Tennessee State Capitol, which housed Confederate monuments. "In my Tennessee mountain homeLife is as peaceful as a baby's sighIn my Tennessee mountain homeCrickets sing in the fields nearby."

In the U.S., members of Operation Warp Speed recommended that states should expand access to Covid-19 vaccines to everyone 65 and older, as well as adults with underlying health conditions. Meanwhile, after months of delays, a team of experts from the World Health Organization has arrived in the Chinese city of Wuhan on a mission to investigate the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. China has resisted calls for an international inquiry into the source of the virus — conscious of the negative stigma the country has already suffered in the now global pandemic — but has agreed to let a WHO team in.

Lawmakers in the House of Representatives have put forward a bipartisan bill to award Capitol Police officer and Army veteran Eugene Goodman the Congressional Gold Medal.

Several lawmakers have put forward legislation to award Capitol Police officer and Army veteran Eugene Goodman one of the highest civilian awards in the US for his actions during the assault on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob last Wednesday. "I shudder to think what might have happened had it not been for Officer Goodman's fast thinking and commitment to his duty and his country," he continued. "While some will remember last Wednesday for the very worst in our country, the patriotism and heroics of Officer Eugene Goodman renew my faith and remind us all what truly makes the United States great."

She told NBC Asian America that her Republican colleagues at the time prioritized loyalty to President Donald Trump over the safety of others. As the mob descended on the Capitol on Wednesday, Jayapal was in lockdown with about 100 other lawmakers. The contrast with the slowness of punitive measures against the rioters has its roots in the history of law enforcement, she said. Rather than protect communities of color, some of the earliest forms of law enforcement were intended to control the behaviors of people of color. "And so I think that was the history of the structures of law enforcement in this country, and I think that has continued to perpetuate through the system and into the sensibilities of not all but many who serve in law enforcement."

Several Democratic members of Congress have alleged that the mob at the US Capitol had help from people with insider knowledge of the building. On Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherril released a Facebook Live video claiming she saw several members of Congress taking people on "reconnaissance" tours on January 5. Several Congressional Democrats have alleged the January 6 breach of the Capitol Building was aided by people on the inside. But on Tuesday, New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill went further and released a 13-minute Facebook Live video in which she suggested that members of Congress were also complicit in the attack. Sherill said she witnessed members of Congress escort people through the Capitol Building on January 5, and referred to it as "reconnaissance" for the January 6 insurrection.

Some representatives now consider that lockdown a superspreader event, an instance in which an infected person passes the coronavirus to a disproportionate number of others. That situation prompted "a COVID superspreader event," she said — a circumstance in which one person infects a disproportionately large number of others. A superspreader event, then, refers to any instance in which an infected person passes the virus to more people than that average. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the ceremony a superspreader event. Jayapal told The Cut that Republican lawmakers "still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack."
