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.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

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.

No federal officials have held public briefings about the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Nearly a week after a mob stormed the US Capitol building, not a single federal official has hosted a public briefing to inform Americans about what happened, and what the federal government is doing to bring insurrectionists to justice. Neither Rosen nor Wray has given a public briefing, and neither are expected to participate in a briefing to members of Congress about the chaos, according to The Wall Street Journal. After Insider inquired about the lack of public briefings, the Justice Department announced it would host one at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. counterterrorism prosecutors are probing the crowd of President Donald Trump’s supporters who stormed the Capitol last week, initially focusing on at least two men who equipped themselves with plastic zip ties - a common kidnapping tool. Federal prosecutors have said they are exploring other possible charges, from seditious conspiracy to murder and felony murder, after a Capitol Police officer who was assaulted by rioters later died. At least 25 domestic terrorism investigations have been opened into the incident, Democratic U.S. Representative Jason Crow said on Sunday, citing information from U.S. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy. A Justice Department spokesman did not respond to questions about how many of its ongoing investigations into the U.S. Capitol riots have a counterterrorism angle. “Congress needs to come together and actually amend the penalties for the definition of domestic terrorism,” he said.

ET Capitol Riot Fallout Live Updates: Fallout Spreads to Sports, Universities and Businesses As Mr. Trump faced the prospect of a second impeachment, major institutions said they did not tolerate actions that incited violence.

President Trump’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, speaking to supporters from The Ellipse near the White House on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Mr. Giuliani addressed a crowd of Mr. Trump’s supporters, repeating Mr. Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud then appearing to urge people toward violence. The investigation was only the latest example of efforts to push back against lawyers who have supported Mr. Trump’s push to remain in power.

Colorado Rep. Jason Crow, a former Army Ranger, asked Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy for a review of troops participating in the inauguration to ensure they are not sympathetic to domestic terrorists. The congressman's request followed an assault on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob that appears to have included veterans and may have also included current military personnel. Gallego and Duckworth condemned participation in the storming of the Capitol by former and current military members as a violation of their oath. It is unclear whether that number includes current or former military members. There are currently over 6,000 National Guard troops in DC, and that number is expected to surge to 10,000 by this weekend.

NBC News reported right-wing extremists on the social media site Parler and the platform TheDonald are vowing a return to the nation's capital for the Biden inauguration. For security purposes, Biden's inauguration was long ago designated a National Special Security Event by the Homeland Security Department.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

Several told Reuters that top Capitol security officials had assured them they would be safe ahead of the planned protests and that everything was under control. In interviews with Reuters and in public statements, lawmakers fumed over the failure of the Capitol Police - a 2,000-member force dedicated to guarding the Capitol Grounds - and other agencies. Earlier in the day, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund released a statement praising his officers’ response to an overwhelming situation. No one could get on the Capitol grounds and police had plenty of manpower to handle any incidents, the lawmakers said security officials told them. “The next thing you know, you turn on the TV and they’re swinging from the Capitol building with flags,” Ryan said in a video news conference with reporters.

The Pentagon placed major restrictions on the DC National Guard leading up to Wednesday's attempted insurrection, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Officials curtailed the ability of DC guardsmen to deploy troops, receive ammo and riot gear, engage with protesters, share equipment with local police, and use surveillance without explicit approval from Trump's acting Defense Secretary, Christopher Miller, according to the Post. Five fatalities, including one law enforcement officer, have been confirmed so far in connection with Wednesday's violence. But decisions by law enforcement — USCP as well as local and federal agencies — not to prepare for riots have drawn sharp criticism. Sund, the USCP chief, and another high-ranking Capitol security officer have already announced their plans to resign, and more are expected to go.

US Capitol Police rejected multiple offers for help dealing with pro-Trump protesters in the days leading up to Wednesday's violence. The Department of Defense offered to send National Guard troops and the Justice Department offered up FBI agents, but the Capitol Police turned them both down. And as the mob descended on the building Wednesday, Justice Department leaders reached out to offer up FBI agents. The Justice Department, FBI and other agencies began to monitor hotels, flights and social media for weeks and were expecting large crowds. Agents from nearly every Justice Department agency, including the FBI, were called in.

Larry Hogan, a Republican, said Thursday that he tried to deploy his state's National Guard to assist in Washington, DC, but was thwarted. Hogan said he was "repeatedly" told he lacked the authorization to deploy the troops, The Washington Post reported. According to The New York Times, the decision to authorize National Guard deployments ultimately came from Vice President Mike Pence, marking an apparent break with the chain in command. As rioters smashed windows and forced lawmakers into hiding, the head of the Maryland National Guard was told he could not come to the aid of US Capitol police, per Hogan. The order to deploy the National Guard came not from the commander in chief, President Donald Trump, but rather Vice President Mike Pence, according to The New York Times.

The head of the Capitol Hill police department said its officers "responded valiantly" to the pro-Trump mob who invaded the halls of Congress Wednesday. The United States Capitol Police said in a statement that it "responded valiantly" to the rioters who invaded the halls of Congress in the biggest breach to Capitol security in 200 years. On Wednesday, a pro-Trump mob broke into the Capitol building, fighting officers and breaking down doors and glass windows to get past Congress's security forces and invade their chambers and offices. One pro-Trump rioter, Ashli Babbitt, was shot and killed attempting to enter the Capitol building. Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives who oversee the Capitol Hill's budget said they would investigate what went wrong with Capitol Hill security Wednesday.

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser says the invasion of the Capitol Wednesday was "textbook terrorism" and what President Donald Trump "wanted to happen." Bowser also renewed calls for DC statehood, saying that if she were a governor she would have been able to activate the National Guard more quickly. Bowser also criticized the Capitol Police force, which is distinct from the DC Metropolitan Police under her control, for Wednesday's security failures. In addition to a renewed call to make the District of Columbia the 51st US state, Bowser said Congress should immediately grant her the ability to invoke the National Guard. Bowser said that while state governors have the unilateral power to activate the National Guard, she can only activate the DC National Guard with the permission of the secretary of the Army.

President Donald Trump in a White House meeting Friday touted the idea of imposing martial law to overturn the election result, reported The New York Times and Axios. President Donald Trump, in a White House meeting, raised the possibility of imposing martial law in a bid to overturn the result of the presidential election, according to reports Saturday. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the reports. He wrote that under current law, "the president lacks any authority to declare martial law." On Twitter, former White House ethics counsel Richard Painter responded to Trump discussing invoking martial law with a one-word message: "Treason."
