(CNN) Trinity Rodman, a rising star on US soccer youth national teams, was selected second overall by the Washington Spirit in Wednesday's National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) draft. Rodman was due to play as a forward for Washington State University, yet her freshman collegiate season last fall was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic . She has familial ties to the university; her brother, DJ, is a sophomore on Washington State's men's basketball team. She said because of the pandemic, the timing worked out for her to turn toward her professional career. She added, "Right now I think it's the perfect time to get in there and learn and become a better player."

“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.

Members of the Washington State Patrol stand guard outside the Washington State Capitol Building as the 2021 Legislative session begins in Olympia, Washington, January 11, 2021. The senior law enforcement official says the FBI's National Crisis Coordination Center distributed the update to law enforcement agencies as a summary of threat information they've received following last Wednesday's deadly mob attack on the Capitol. While the memo discusses possible threats discussed by online actors for Jan. 16 through the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20, it doesn't mean that law enforcement agencies expect violent mass protests or confrontations in every state. The spokesperson added, "As always, we are in constant communication with our law enforcement partners and will share any actionable intelligence." Law enforcement officials point out that Congress can't remove a president via the 25th Amendment.

Two key House Democrats on Monday urged the Federal Aviation Administration to crack down on unruly travelers and ensure that participants in last week's riot at the U.S. Capitol don't fly. Their comments come ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration and after reports of disruptions on board Washington, D.C.-bound flights ahead of Wednesday's riot at the U.S. Capitol and other flights out of the area afterward. Alaska Airlines on Friday said it banned 14 travelers from a Washington, D.C.-to-Seattle flight. The travelers were "non-mask compliant, rowdy, argumentative and harassed our crew members," according to spokesman Ray Lane. FAA chief Dickson on Saturday warned travelers that they would face hefty fines and potential jail time if they engaged in unruly behavior.

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.

Supporters of outgoing Republican President Donald Trump are protesting at statehouses across the U.S. on Wednesday amid a violent riot on Capitol Hill . Trump posted a video on Twitter telling Capitol Hill rioters to "go home," but did not address protests at state buildings. Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger evacuated from the state capitol building Wednesday afternoon, NBC affiliate 11Alive reported. Hundreds of Trump supporters protested outside the Michigan State Capitol on Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reported. The Utah capitol building has been closed to the public due to the pandemic, not due to protests.

The MSNBC anchor Yasmin Vossoughian said on air outside the Capitol that she and her team had worn clothing unmarked by MSNBC or NBC insignia. Journalists who were covering the counting of the electoral votes inside the Capitol building sought shelter from the violent protesters who had smashed their way in. Haley Talbot, an NBC producer, took refuge in a congressional representative’s office with five other reporters. The Canadian outlet CTV News reported that a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation photographer had been punched in the face while covering a small rally of Trump supporters in Vancouver, British Columbia. He added that he had pepper-sprayed other reporters earlier and said he would kill her and other journalists “in the next year.”

As supporters of President Trump breached the nation’s Capitol on Wednesday, hundreds of other Trump supporters across the country gathered at state capitols, in some cases prompting evacuations and law enforcement mobilizations. In Washington State, a crowd of Trump supporters, some of them armed, breached the fence surrounding the governor’s residence and approached the building before state troopers mobilized to keep them away. Jay Inslee said in a video statement that political leaders would not be swayed by the protests. “Those acts of intimidation will not succeed,” said Mr. Inslee, a Democrat. In Georgia, law enforcement officers escorted Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger out of the State Capitol on Wednesday afternoon as a few dozen Trump supporters outside the building rallied to protest the recent election results.

Users on social media are sharing a TikTok video showing a caravan of President Donald Trump supporters. Some posts claim the video depicts demonstrators heading to Washington D.C. to protest on Jan. 6 against the outcome of the presidential election. A search of the handle @Kilawhale58 on the video platform TikTok shows that the clip in this claim was posted on Nov. 14, 2020 ( bit.ly/358slfW ). A different video of the Nov. 1 caravan in Olympia, Washington State, was shared on Twitter by a local reporter here . The video was first shared in November 2020, to show a pro-Trump caravan in Washington State heading to a meet-up at Olympia ahead of the presidential election, not protesters heading to Washington D.C. in January 2021.

That's why researchers are working to develop the "perfect" Christmas tree that can capture the familiar pine scent without shedding needles so fast. This, though, is no ordinary Balsam, but rather forestry's answer to an ubermensch: the "SMART" tree, or "Senescent Modulated Accession Regulated Technologies." "It isn't a Christmas tree anymore, but a family holiday tree," Rakjasekaran Lada told Business Insider.

[MUSIC PLAYING] Leviticus — an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth I will repay, an often-quoted scripture that people use to justify the death penalty. Jerry Givens — a loving husband, father, a devout Christian, and former executioner for the State of Virginia. I met Jerry late in his life, after he came around to being a death- penalty abolitionist. And, of course, in 1972, the Supreme Court struck down all the death- penalty laws in the country. We’ve abolished the death penalty in a number of states — New Jersey, New Mexico, Illinois, Connecticut, Maryland, New Hampshire, Colorado.

WASHINGTON/SEATTLE (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers are considering providing payroll assistance for aerospace manufacturers and suppliers as part of a massive $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill, congressional aides told Reuters. Of $45 billion designated for transportation in the bill, $16 billion has now been reserved for aviation. Some congressional aides think the final bill could designate $1 billion for aerospace workers and $1 billion for airport contractors, but negotiations continue. It is not clear what any final aerospace assistance program adopted by Congress might look like. U.S. airlines will be required to offer more than 32,000 workers furloughed in October their jobs back and keep them on payrolls through March 31 as a condition of assistance.
