Dustin Higgs, 48, was convicted in the 1996 kidnapping and killings of three women in a Maryland wildlife refuge. Higgs, who was pronounced dead at 1:23 a.m., was the thirteenth federal convict put to death under Trump. President-elect Joe Biden, scheduled to be inaugurated Wednesday, opposes the federal death penalty and has signaled he’ll end its use. The number of federal death sentences carried out under Trump since 2020 is more than in the previous 56 years combined, reducing the number of prisoners on federal death row by nearly a quarter. It contained Higgs’s nickname, “Bones,” his telephone number, his address number and the tag number for his van.

Several governors on Friday accused Azar of deceiving them about how many doses they could expect in the near future. Frieden said in an interview that there’s so little basic information available about where the nation’s vaccine doses are and what’s coming that it’s difficult to know where the bottlenecks are. Patrick Allen, director of the Oregon Health Authority, sent a letter to the Trump administration seeking clarification on the federal government’s vaccine inventory. Tim Walz, a Democrat, accused federal health officials of “lying” about the existence of a federal stockpile. Still, some public health experts said they struggled to see any part of the vaccine supply chain that was working well.

FILE PHOTO: A medical worker prepares to administer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at a drive-through COVID-19 vaccination site at the Strawberry Festival Fairgrounds in Plant City, Florida, U.S. January 13, 2021. “We’ve been getting resupply right now at a very paltry level of about 100,000 doses a week,” de Blasio said on WNYC radio. At least one New York City healthcare system canceled vaccination appointments and another suspended new ones. A Mount Sinai Hospital spokeswoman said “sudden changes in vaccine supply” forced it to cancel appointments through next Tuesday. According to the CDC, however, New York state has administered only about 757,000 doses of the 1.9 million it has received.

The January 6 insurrection on the Capitol had some familiar echoes of the November 2000 uprising on Miami-Dade County's presidential recount, an incident that came to be known as the Brooks Brothers riot. The Capitol insurrection was both far more far more violent and had more serious physical consequences for the place where the attack occurred, although unlike the Brooks Brothers rioters, this group failed to stop the counting of votes. The Brooks Brothers riot revived a new blueprint for electoral disputes, one that openly deployed violence and intimidation to frighten officials into discarding legitimate votes. Like the Brooks Brothers riot, it took place on a Wednesday. Unlike the Brooks Brothers riot, the pro-Trump insurrectionists, despite their efforts, did not succeed in suspending the counting of votes and, in fact, hardened the resolve of lawmakers to finish the count in defiance of mob violence.

Ali Alexander, the organizer behind the "Stop the Steal" movement, said three Republican congressmen helped him plan the January 6 rally that preceded the armed insurrection at the Capitol that left five dead. A spokeswoman for Gosar told Insider: "The Congressman has no comment at this time." Daniel Stefanski, spokesperson for Rep. Andy Biggs told Insider that Alexander's claims were "absolutely false." Other Republicans, including Biggs, Brooks, and Gosar, have also come under scrutiny for their language in perpetuating Trump's false narrative. Alexander told The Post that he remained peaceful during the event and that his speeches had mentioned peace but were being misrepresented.

Secret Service agents assigned to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner aren't permitted to use any of the six bathrooms in the couple's Washington, DC, home in the wealthy neighborhood of Kalorama, according to The Washington Post. Since 2017, US taxpayers have shelled out roughly $100,000 — which amounts to about $3,000 a month — for the government to rent a nearby studio apartment so the Kushners' Secret Service detail can use its bathroom. The Secret Service eventually came to a more permanent and comfortable solution for the agents — on the taxpayer's dime. "It's the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom," one law enforcement official told the Post. At some times, they also drove about a mile away to a Secret Service command post at the Naval Observatory, where the Pences live, to use the bathrooms there.

The acting assistant chief of the Capitol Police told Congress on Tuesday that he was not aware of any intelligence from the FBI in advance of Jan. 6, raising questions about an assertion by a top FBI official that threat information was shared with local police in advance of the Capitol riot. “In response to a question, Assistant Chief Gallagher also informed members that he was not aware of intelligence from the FBI in advance of January 6,” the document says. “I did not have that information, nor was that information taken into consideration in our security planning,” Sund was quoted as saying. The FBI’s Washington field office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But NBC News also reported Tuesday that the FBI did not issue a comprehensive intelligence bulletin sharing everything its intelligence analysts had gathered about extremist postings on social media threatening violence.

The three journalists said no explanation was given, but they added that the reason did not have to be detailed. CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The Times are seen as liberal within the Murdoch empire, which is home to Fox News and Fox Business, cable networks that were instrumental to the rise of President Trump. To publish articles based on the work of those organizations would not fit the Post’s right-leaning identity, the journalists said. In the final days of the campaign, when Mr. Trump seemed headed for defeat, the tabloid’s tone shifted. Amid the violence Trump loyalists chanted, “CNN sucks,” and MSNBC journalists said they made sure not to display MSNBC identifying markers on their gear or clothing.

A new report from The Washington Post says Trump was too busy watching the insurrection unfold on TV to do anything to quell it. President Donald Trump was too busy watching the Capitol building insurrection violently unfold on TV to help quell it, advisors told The Washington Post. Several senators trapped in the Capitol building during the siege told The Post they tried reaching out to the president for help, but their calls went unanswered. "It took him a while to appreciate the gravity of the situation," Graham told The Post. White House staff alerted the president to the events at the Capitol Building at around 2 p.m.

The rush to complete President Trump's border wall with Mexico is in some places worse than pointless, campaigners have told Insider.

John Darwin KurcTrump is due to leave office on January 20, and his successor, Joe Biden, has pledged to bring wall construction to an immediate halt. He said also said that access roads that aren't converted to patrol roads can be "returned to their previous state."

Supporters of President Trump had descended on Washington to protest Congress’ ceremonial certification of the Electoral College after weeks of his baseless claims of election irregularities. warned local law enforcement partners that armed protests were being planned in all 50 state houses and the U.S. Capitol. Lawmakers were left rattled; several confided afterward that they were fearful of re-entering the Capitol this week. At the Aztek Barber Shop in Alamo, Alejandro Silva, 27, said he held nothing against Mr. Trump and did not have an opinion about the border wall. Mr. Trump was expected to take his megaphone to the platforms, and tens of thousands joined those sites expecting him to land there.

President Donald Trump in December pressured the lead elections investigator in the state of Georgia to "find the fraud" responsible for his election loss, The Washington Post reported Saturday. There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election, but Trump has repeatedly spread the baseless conspiracy theory since his loss in November. President Donald Trump on a December 23 phone call pressured Georgia's lead elections investigator to "find the fraud" responsible for his election loss, The Washington Post reported Saturday. The call with the elections investigator took place about a week prior to the president's call with Raffensperger, according to the Post report. It took place just before the Christmas holiday when the investigator was looking into reports of ballot fraud in Cobb County, according to The Washington Post.

The earlier phone call, which Mr. Trump made in late December, was first reported by The Washington Post on Saturday. The contents of the Post report were verified by a state elections official who requested anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak about the matter. In the December call, Mr. Trump said the investigator would be a “national hero” for finding evidence of fraud. The audit appeared to be an effort to placate Mr. Trump and his allies, who repeatedly, and baselessly, argued that he lost the election in Georgia by around 12,000 votes because of a “rigged” system. The president also repeatedly alleged that there were problems with the signature-matching system by which elections officials in the state verify the identity of absentee voters.

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.
