That lack of a voice rankles many in a fast-growing city, who argue that Washington has more residents than Vermont or Wyoming but no say in national affairs. But the unexpected capturing of the Senate by Democrats in Georgia elections on Tuesday has inspired hopes of progress. Governors can summon the National Guard in their states at will, but the District of Columbia Guard can be deployed only after approval by the Pentagon and, by extension, the president. That approval was delayed while the mob controlled the Capitol, seemingly because President Trump did not sign off on the deployment. “It was obvious the Guard was wanted around 3 p.m., and authorization didn’t occur for at least an hour, if not longer,” Phil Mendelson, the Council chairman, said on Thursday.

Under law, the federal government controls the D.C. National Guard — meaning Bowser had no say over the matter as she watched her city get torn apart. Over the summer during the Black Lives Matter protests, President Trump promptly deployed National Guard and other federal protective services to counter largely-peaceful demonstrators. Trump promised to fight back against the social media giant and possible create a platform of his own. I am doing this in large part as #Trump and family have tried, and thankfully failed, to destroy America’s democracy.

REUTERS/Leah Millis/PoolWILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) -President-Elect Joe Biden will nominate Representative Deb Haaland to serve as his Interior Secretary, according to a person familiar with the matter. Haaland, a Democratic congresswoman from New Mexico since 2019, would be the first Native American Cabinet secretary and the first to oversee the department, whose jurisdiction includes tribal lands. If nominated, Haaland would step down from her seat in the U.S. House, where Democrats already are facing a slim majority in 2021 after losing seats in the 2020 election.

REUTERS/Leah Millis/PoolWILMINGTON, Del./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Deb Haaland of New Mexico has emerged as President-elect Joe Biden’s leading choice to head the Interior Department, according to three sources familiar with the proceedings, a selection that would make her the first Native American to lead a cabinet agency. The position would give her authority over a department that employs more than 70,000 people across the United States and oversees more than 20% of federal land, including national parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite. She has told Reuters she would seek to usher in an expansion of renewable energy production on federal land to contribute to the fight against climate change, and undo President Donald Trump’s focus on bolstering fossil fuels output. Two of the sources said that Biden’s team is close to finalizing the decision on Haaland, but are weighing concerns about the loss of a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Democrats are hanging on to a slim majority. The third source said the decision was made and that an announcement was imminent.

WILMINGTON, Del./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Deb Haaland of New Mexico appears to be President-elect Joe Biden’s top choice to head the Interior Department, three informed sources said, a pick that would make her the first Native American to lead a Cabinet agency. Two sources said Biden currently favors Jennifer Granholm to run the Department of Energy. Granholm, 61, was Michigan’s first female governor and pushed for a transition to green technologies in the longtime car-manufacturing state. Haaland, a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe and one of the first Native American women elected to Congress, has said she believes the fact that she was being considered for the Interior post was good news for Native American areas. The Trump administration had used the Interior Department as a key tool in its “energy dominance” agenda, which prioritized deregulation and fastracking of fossil fuel projects to maximize domestic oil, gas, and coal output.
