Conspiracy theorists and pro-Trump extremists are using podcasts hosted on mainstream tech platforms to push misinformation, despite a widespread crackdown on individual social media accounts that push these ideas. That's still available on Apple Podcasts as of January 17. Spotify, meanwhile, in November banned "War Room", a podcast hosted by former White House adviser Steve Bannon. Her podcast remains available on Apple and Google, but was removed from Spotify after an inquiry by the AP. Oren Segal of ADL's Center on Extremism told AP: "Podcasts filled with hatred and incitement to violence should not be treated any differently than any other content.

Four House committee chairs signed onto the letter, which called for documents and briefings from the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Counterterrorism Center and the Director of National Intelligence on what was known ahead of the attack. The letter was signed by Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Homeland Security Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. and Oversight Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y. In the letter, lawmakers cited press reporting that the U.S. Capitol Police had been warned that Trump supporters would attempt to violently enter into the Capitol. Capitol Police officials have said they did not see FBI intelligence ahead of the attack. The first is what was known by the intelligence community and law enforcement ahead of, during and after the attack.

Digital flyers have circulated in those spaces for weeks advertising armed marches in Washington and state capitals around the inauguration, posts that prompted recent warnings from federal law enforcement about potential violence. But some far-right groups on public platforms have cautioned supporters to avoid such demonstrations, saying, without evidence, that they are traps set by law enforcement to crack down on gun rights. MISSED SIGNSA Jan. 5 memo from an FBI office in Virginia underscores the difficulties facing law enforcement agencies now in trying to determine which threats around the inauguration are real and which are bluster. It was downplayed by many law enforcement agencies, partly because the FBI labeled the material unconfirmed “open source reporting,” according to a law enforcement source familiar with the memo. Frank Figliuzzi, a former assistant FBI director for counterintelligence, said law enforcement officials will be more active in letting some right-wing online users fomenting violence know they are being watched.

Biden's inauguration rehearsal postponed over security concerns, Politico says

(Reuters) - A rehearsal for U.S President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration scheduled for Sunday has been postponed because of security concerns, Politico reported late on Thursday, citing two people with knowledge of the decision. Biden’s team had also canceled an Amtrak trip from Wilmington to Washington planned for Monday due to heightened security concerns, the report added. The warnings follow last week’s assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump that left five people dead. Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol last Wednesday, trying to halt the certification by Congress of Biden’s election win. Trump, who has challenged the validity of Biden’s victory without producing evidence, initially praised his supporters but later condemned the violence.

Andrew Williams, who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, asked, "How are they going to arrest every single person?" Williams also said while storming the Capitol, according to an FBI affidavit. A man who stormed the US Capitol building during the January 6 insurrection expressed doubt that he would be arrested for participating in the insurrection — before being arrested days later, according to prosecutors. Many of the people who participated in the Capitol building riots posted about it on social media. Others, including Kevin Loftus and Aaron Mostofsky, bragged to acquaintances about being in the building in private messages later obtained by federal law enforcement officials.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Mob Members Tour of Capitol Before Riot The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. The latter option may be more appealing to Mr. Biden, but it could undercut Democrats’ argument that Congress must move urgently to impeach and try Mr. Trump. Speaking from Delaware on Thursday to introduce his sweeping economic plan, Mr. Biden urged lawmakers to come together and pass additional relief. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud.

Former New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton warned CNBC’s “The News with Shepard Smith” that domestic terrorism has superseded the threat of international terrorism in the United States. “For the last 20 years our biggest concern was international terrorism — ISIS, Al Qaeda,” Bratton said in a Friday evening interview. State capitols across the nation are facing the threat of violence in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugurations. FBI Director Christopher Wray told state officials to take any extremist threat seriously at a briefing on inauguration security at FEMA headquarters on Friday. “If we find that an individual poses a violent threat, then we and our partners will take advantage of every lawful authority and method we’ve got to disrupt any attempt or attack,” Wray said.

She told NBC Asian America that her Republican colleagues at the time prioritized loyalty to President Donald Trump over the safety of others. As the mob descended on the Capitol on Wednesday, Jayapal was in lockdown with about 100 other lawmakers. The contrast with the slowness of punitive measures against the rioters has its roots in the history of law enforcement, she said. Rather than protect communities of color, some of the earliest forms of law enforcement were intended to control the behaviors of people of color. "And so I think that was the history of the structures of law enforcement in this country, and I think that has continued to perpetuate through the system and into the sensibilities of not all but many who serve in law enforcement."

Then there is the more immediate concern: Law enforcement agencies owe the American people more regular updates on efforts to prevent further violence than they’ve received to date. For an administration that has failed time and again to perform the most simple tasks of governance, this halfhearted response is worrisome. Right now the priority must be reassurance, especially in light of last week’s systemic failure by multiple law enforcement agencies. Another question: How many members of law enforcement and the military participated in last week’s riot? One Secret Service officer is reportedly under investigation for posting comments on Facebook accusing lawmakers who confirmed Mr. Biden’s electoral victory of treason.

WASHINGTON — Amid the sea of troubling facts, arrests and iconic images that have emerged in the days since the assault on the Capitol, one element remains largely absent: reassurances from some of the nation’s top national security officials. Neither the acting attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen, nor the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, has appeared at the type of high-profile news conference that typically marks a major criminal investigation, instead issuing news releases. Mr. Rosen also called for calm and vowed to fully investigate the violence, but the comments came in a video posted by the Justice Department on YouTube around midnight. Chad F. Wolf, the departing acting secretary of homeland security, was in the Middle East during the siege and did not return until later in the week.

Thousands of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Wednesday and sent lawmakers running for safety, interrupting Congress’ work of formally certifying the Electoral College vote in favor of Democrat Joe Biden. There was a danger of many of the same people who stormed the Capitol returning to Washington in the days before the inauguration, Schumer told reporters.
