The users claim that the National Guard has “turned their backs” on Biden, suggesting that this action is a display to show their rejection of the President. More than 25,000 National Guard troops were deployed to assist in protecting the U.S. Capitol for potential security concerns ahead of Wednesday’s inauguration of Biden (here). A video showing the inauguration motorcade for President Donald J. Trump in January 2017 here appears similar, with some facing away. A video of President Barack Obama’s inauguration motorcade here also shows various guards facing away from the road. Nahaku McFadden, media operations chief for the National Guard Bureau of Public Affairs, confirmed to Reuters via email that the video shows routine protocol for this type of duty.

A self-described “dating and relationship strategist” from New Jersey was charged Thursday for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after posting multiple videos to Twitter admitting he was there. The New Jersey native was brought to the FBI’s attention after former classmates from college and high school submitted tips based on his tweets. The tweets expressed criticism of the “mainstream media” for its characterization of the riot, made unfounded claims that the rioters were anti-fascists rather than Donald Trump supporters and described politicians as criminals.

FILE PHOTO: The logo of Amazon is seen at the company logistics centre in Boves, France, August 8, 2018. Amazon Web Services suspended Parler on Jan. 10. It has said Parler violated its contract by ignoring repeated warnings to effectively address steady growth in violent content, including calls to assassinate prominent Democratic politicians, leading business executives and the media. Parler said Amazon had no contractual right to pull the plug, and did so out of “political animus” to benefit Twitter Inc, a larger Amazon client that Parler said did not censor violent content targeting conservatives. Many supporters of former U.S. President Donald Trump favor Parler, which has claimed it had more than 12 million users.

The head of the House oversight committee asked the FBI on Thursday to conduct a review of the social media platform Parler, which advertises itself as an alternative to more mainstream sites that have banned some far-right extremists. “Numerous Parler users have been arrested and charged with threatening violence against elected officials or for their role in participating directly in the January 6 attacks,” Maloney wrote. But Parler had trouble staying online in the days immediately following the election, as Amazon, which hosted its servers, cut ties with the company. It has since intermittently come back online, with lingering technical difficulties, after finding refuge with a Russian company called DDoS-Guard. Grassroots efforts to mine that data for useful information to give to law enforcement are ongoing.

U.S. House aims for early February COVID-19 relief bill vote

REUTERS/Jim Bourg/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives is planning to bring a coronavirus relief bill to a vote the first week of February, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday, as President Joe Biden’s administration grapples with a crisis that has killed more than 400,000 Americans. Biden has proposed a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 bill that would provide enhanced jobless benefits and direct cash payments to households struggling amid the economic fallout from the virus. Though Biden’s Democratic party holds narrow majorities in the House and Senate, the legislation will likely need bipartisan support to clear procedural hurdles and emerge out of the Senate. Some Republicans have raised questions about shoveling out more direct payments on the heels of last month’s enactment of a coronavirus aid bill. Many of them also oppose aid to state and local governments, a top priority of Democrats.

Representative Carolyn Maloney, who chairs the panel, cited press reports that detailed violent threats on Parler against state elected officials for their role in certifying the election results before the Jan. 6 attack. She also noted numerous Parler users have been arrested and charged with threatening violence against elected officials or for their role in participating in the attack. Reuters reported this week Parler partially returned online with the help of a Russian-owned technology company.

President Joe Biden will keep Christopher Wray on as FBI director, a White House official told NBC News on Thursday. White House press secretary Jen Psaki prompted some raised eyebrows in law enforcement and intelligence circles on Wednesday when she declined to say in a news briefing whether Biden had confidence in Wray. The FBI is leading an investigation intothe attack. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said last week that he will look at the kind of threat information available beforehand and how widely it was shared with U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies. Wray, who has more than six years left in his 10-year term, had no indication that Biden or his team was dissatisfied with him, a senior FBI official said Wednesday night, adding that “the sentiments shared have all been positive.”Some influential voices have been critical of the FBI's response to the riot, however.

REUTERS/Erin ScottWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday she will consult with fellow Democrats in coming days about the Senate’s readiness to begin an impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. “I’ll be talking with the managers as to when the Senate will be ready for the trial of the then-president of the United States for his role in instigating an insurrection on the Capitol of the United States,” Pelosi told reporters at a briefing. A source familiar with the investigation said Pelosi could send the article of impeachment to the Senate as early as Friday. On Jan. 13 the House approved one article of impeachment against Trump, making him the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice. Now it is up to the Democratic-controlled Senate to decide whether Trump is guilty of the incitement charge.

Images from the Jan. 6 insurgency are now part of American history, as well. Similarly, the "1776 Report" seems motivated at its core by fear of losing: losing elections, losing power and, more generally, losing the hearts and minds of the majority.

But according to Isabel Wilkerson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and historian, change may not come so easily. Her reporting reveals that the systems of power in America are deeply defined by caste. On this episode of “Sway,” she explains how she saw an invisible ranking system play out in the raid at the U.S. Capitol, and argues that rushing to move on would be a mistake.

Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, declined to say whether Wray would hold onto his role during her first press conference on Wednesday. The Justice Department, which contains the FBI, is also probing the financial affairs of Biden's son, Hunter Biden. Prior to Comey, only one FBI director had been fired in the bureau's history. Former President Bill Clinton fired William Sessions in 1993 after a Justice Department report raised ethics questions.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who chairs the panel, cited press reports that detailed violent threats on Parler against state elected officials for their role in certifying the election results before the Jan. 6 attack that left five dead. She also noted numerous Parler users have been arrested and charged with threatening violence against elected officials or for their role in participating in the attack. The FBI and Parler did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Maloney asked the FBI to review Parler's financing and its ties to Russia after she noted the company had re-emerged.

A Seattle court rejected Parler's attempt to force Amazon to bring the network back online. Amazon Web Services removed Parler on January 11 for violating its terms of service. The US District Court in Seattle rejected social network Parler's effort to get back on Amazon's web hosting platform. Parler, a social network touted by conservative politicians and right-wing influencers, sued Amazon days later, claiming the move was politically motivated and anticompetitive. In a counter-lawsuit filed last week, Amazon claimed it first contacted Parler representatives on November 17 to discuss violent content on the app.
