With that, Biden is under significant pressure to turn his pledges of unity and competence into results - and swiftly. The public wants to see a functional government deliver, a Biden adviser said, adding that plenty of Trump voters have been hurt by the pandemic. Yet Biden will have to contend with narrow Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, which will leave him little maneuvering room. With his thin Democratic majorities in Congress, Biden will be forced to tread carefully and not hand Republicans too large a target to exploit. Biden can be thankful for one thing: Trump will not have his Twitter account to make mischief from Day One.

Former FBI Director James Comey eviscerated President Donald Trump, his supporters, and the Republican Party in an interview with The Guardian. Comey also criticized Trump's personal character, saying his lies make him "uniquely able to bend people." Former FBI Director James Comey said that the Republican Party needs to be "burned down or changed," and called the pro-Trump Capitol riot "our own Chernobyl" in a searing interview with The Guardian published Tuesday. In the interview, Comey called for a different conservative party, saying the GOP as it exists is "built on lies and racism and know-nothingism." "What Donald Trump has done for the last five years is attack the building from the outside to weaken its foundation," Comey told The Guardian.

To explain the attack on the Capitol, you can’t just turn your focus to Donald Trump and his enablers. You must also look at the individuals and institutions that fanned fears of “voter fraud” to the point of hysteria among conservative voters, long before Trump. Put another way, the difference between a riot seeking to overturn an election and an effort to suppress opposing votes is one of legality, not intent. And the residents of cemeteries have infamously shown up at the polls on Election Day. The Republican National Committee supported this push, claiming to have evidence that thousands of voters had cast more than one ballot in the same election.

A progressive group is urging corporations to stop contributing to the Federalist Society after one of the conservative legal organization's leaders was featured at last week's rally that preceded the deadly riot on Capitol Hill. The Federalist Society's 2019 annual report shows that the five companies combined to give up to $400,000 to the group. That report is the most recent available on the Federalist Society's website. The Federalist Society did not return CNBC's requests for comment. The Federalist Society lists Eastman as chairman of its Federalism & Separation of Powers practice group.

Mark Leffingwell of Seattle, who faces charges for assaulting a police officer, is an Iraq war veteran who suffers from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, his lawyer told a judge. Lonnie Coffman, a 70-year-old Alabama man arrested for having explosives in his truck, takes multiple drugs for mental illness, his lawyer told the judge in a hearing this week. Inside his truck, they found an AR-15-style rifle, a shotgun, a crossbow, several machetes, smoke grenades and 11 Molotov cocktails. Two other men, Eric Munchel and Larry Brock, both were photographed inside the Capitol carrying zip ties, commonly used as a handcuff. Michael Curzio, arrested at the front of a crowd inside the Capitol, had recently served a prison sentence in Florida for attempted murder.

But for many grass-roots Republicans, the episode at the Capitol was not the inflection point that some Republicans in Washington assumed it would be. to start a local Trump-centric third party. Even in blue states, Republican leaders find themselves still grappling with Mr. Trump’s politics of grievance. In the New Jersey State Senate, Republicans were split on a resolution condemning Mr. Trump for inciting the riot in the Capitol. Since Mr. Trump’s 2016 victory, 91 of the 168 positions on the Republican National Committee have turned over, with virtually all of the newcomers elected by Trump-aligned state parties.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - While Congress acted to impeach him, President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged his supporters to shun violence as the National Guard prepared to deploy at least 20,000 troops in Washington for the Jan. 20 swearing-in of his successor Joe Biden. About 8,000 National Guard troops were on hand for Trump’s 2016 inauguration, Reuters reported at the time. While the House of Representatives debated a formal charge of “incitement of insurrection,” Trump and the Republican National Committee called for an end to violence ahead of the Inauguration. Incoming troops will be responsible for securing the city before Biden’s inauguration, with new fencing engulfing the Capitol area. Two officials said some National Guard troops were deputized as Capitol Police officers to carry out law enforcement functions if needed.

And a wave of recent departures also came from top White House staffers citing the attack on the Capitol..

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Federal Authorities Sound a Warning; Trump Urges No Violence The deadly breach at the Capitol will be a “significant driver of violence” for armed extremists who are targeting the presidential inauguration, according to a bulletin issued by federal authorities. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said. Shortly before Mr. Trump’s statement was released, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the Republican leader, spoke on the House floor, pinning blame on Mr. Trump for the attack. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who stood by the president during lesser controversies, told his associates that he believed Mr. Trump had committed impeachable offenses. The House is expected to impeach Mr. Trump, for the second time, on Wednesday.

Federal authorities said Tuesday they expect to soon charge hundreds of people in connection with the Capitol riot. Officials added that they have directed a task force to gather evidence for prosecutions for sedition and conspiracy. "We are looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy," said Michael Sherwin, acting United States attorney for the District of Columbia. A number of those cases have involved relatively minor charges, but Sherwin said he expected charges to be upgraded for some people. "We're going to focus on the most significant charges," Sherwin said.

Attorneys for Dominion and Smartmatic, another election technology company, have warned of potential lawsuits against President Donald Trump, Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News. On Friday, Dominion filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Sidney Powell, an architect of the conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election. Smartmatic, the rival company Powell claims is secretly in cahoots with Dominion, does have ties to Venezuela. Even before the 2020 election, Trump has frequently made false claims about voting being rigged against him. Coomer is suing Trump, Powell, Giuliani, and various other right-wing figures and organizations over those claims.

But New York state criminal investigators looking into Trump's business practices have subpoenaed the bank about its lending relationship with the Trump Organization. Last week's events could increase the calls on the government to end its contract with the Trump Organization. But the actions of last week only accelerated companies deciding to no longer do business with Trump, Bookbinder said. "I think unquestionably he would have held on to more of it without last week's events," he said. "I don't know that the demographic of his absolute die hard base is a good fit for his high end businesses," D'Antonio said.

One person was fatally shot during the riot, and a Capitol policeman has now died of injuries he sustained while defending the Capitol. Note whom Secretary Miller and Chairman Milley did NOT speak to: President Trump. The security of the nation’s capital is complicated due to overlapping jurisdictions between local government and federal agencies. Federal agencies retain the primary responsibility for securing the Capitol. He urged the crowd to assault the Capitol, and did very little to stop the violence once the riot started.

Dominion Voting Systems on Friday brought a $1.3 billion defamation suit against the conservative lawyer Sidney Powell, alleging that her false and outlandish claims about fraud in the 2020 election "caused unprecedented harm." Dominion, the supplier of voting machines to Georgia and other states and counties, brought the suit in the U.S. District Court in Washington. The suit lists "Defending the Republic, Inc.," a company Powell has used for fundraising purposes, as a defendant alongside Powell. Clare, speaking to reporters on a call after the suit was filed, suggested that Trump himself could be sued. "Sidney Powell and others created and disseminated these lies, assisted and amplified by a range of media platforms," he said.
