    WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jamie Raskin, the lead House impeachment manager, grew emotional as he concluded the Democrats' first round of arguments in former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial.Raskin spoke about his personal experience in the Capitol on Jan. 6. He had been joined by family members that day - the day after he had buried his son, who died by suicide in December.His daughter and son-in-law were in an office in the Capitol and hid under a desk, where they sent what they thought were their final texts. He says, "They thought they were going to die."Separated from them in the House chamber, Raskin described people around him calling to say goodbye to their families, members removing their congressional pins to try to evade detection. And he said he heard the rioters "pounding on the door like a battering ram" - a sound he said he would "never forget."He...
    A payslip made from a sheet of papyrus shows a Roman soldier was left penniless 1,900 years ago after the military took out fees for certain items. The document was made out to a Gaius Messius, who participated in the Siege of Masada that was one of the last battles during the First Jewish-Roman War. The receipt shows Messius received 50 denarri as his stipend, but fees for barley money, food and military equipment were taken out that totaled to the amount of his full pay. Because part of the deductions taken were for fodder, food for livestock, experts believe he was a legionary cavalryman and had to feed his horse and mule.

    Ethan Nordean is seen in an image embedded in court documents filed by the U.S. Department of Justice. Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to hold admitted Proud Boys member Ethan Nordean, also known as “Rufio Panman,” in jail without bond on charges that he played a role in a Jan. 6th siege on the U.S. Capitol Complex.  Nordean poses a “serious risk of flight,” prosecutors said in a memorandum in support of pretrial detention filed Friday, Feb. 5. “[T]here are no conditions, or combination of conditions, which would ensure Defendant’s presence at trial or the safety of the community if he is released,” prosecutors told a Washington, D.C. federal judge. They argued that Nordean’s association with the Proud Boys makes him different from other defendants. “Whereas some of these rioters traveled to Washington, D.C., individually, a number of extremist and militia groups coordinated together to gather in Washington, expressing...
    Bank of America searched through customer transactions to target people who may have been involved in the Capitol riot and handed information over to federal authorities, according to a new report. At the request of federal investigators, the bank identified 211 customers who fit the profile after making purchases in the D.C. area or spending money on flights or accomation in the days around the violent riot, Fox News' Tucker Carlson claimed on Thursday. Carlson reported that one person identified by their transactions was taken in for questioning but was found to have no links to the event, as he accused the bank of spying on its customers and sharing their private information without their knowledge. He also accused the bank of treating its customers 'like a member of Al Qaeda' for handing over the information. Carlson later accused the left of 'creating extremists like they did in Iraq' as...
    The mob that attacked the Capitol on January 6 was led by organized right-wing extremists, but the majority of them were ostensibly mainstream Trump supporters radicalized into violence. For people who have been monitoring the growth and spread of right-wing extremism inside the mainstream Republican Party—manifested in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol—the arrests that came in the aftermath of that event provided some revealing numbers. Of particular interest is the fact that the average age of the arrestees was 40 years old. That’s a surprisingly high number, particularly considering that most of the pro-Trump activists involved in violent protests of the past four years (especially the Proud Boys) have been younger men between 20 and 40 years old. Two University of Chicago researchers, Robert Pape and Keven Ruby, led a deeper dive into the statistics arising from the arrests for The Atlantic, and confirmed the implications of...

He has been charged in federal court in the District of Columbia with obstructing or impeding an official proceeding, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and aiding and abetting, which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison. Nordean, who uploaded a video on Parler encouraging his fellow members to 'Let them remember the day they decided to...

    Megyn Kelly said CNN and other media outlets are partly responsible for the violence that broke out in the Capitol on Jan. 6 because journalists couldn't check their "personal feelings about” former President Donald Trump. “Part of the reason we saw what happened at the Capitol here two weeks ago is because there had been a complete lack of trust in the media, and people don’t know where to turn for true information. They don’t trust the media anymore. And it’s a major problem,” Kelly said in an interview with BBC Newsnight Saturday. “They hated him so much they checked their objectivity. And it wasn’t just CNN. All of them did. They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly said. She added that “the media destroyed itself” but that Trump “certainly helped.” Kelly, who worked at Fox News during the 2016 election cycle, said she first...

    Nearly one in five of the pro-Trump rioters charged in the Capitol siege earlier this month have either served or are still serving in the military, a new report has revealed. A violent mob of MAGA supporters descended on the US Capitol in Washington DC on January 6 as Congress convened to certify the results of the Electoral College. Five people died amid the chaos, including Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt who was shot dead as she attempted to leap over a barricade. So far, around 140 people have been arrested and charged in connection with the insurrection. According to analysis conducted by NPR, 27 of those suspects - or nearly 20 percent - have served or are currently serving in the military, records show. To put that number into perspective, only around seven percent of all American adults are military veterans, data from the US Census Bureau indicates. So...

    QAnon fanatics are said to have discussed posing as National Guard soldiers in an attempt to infiltrate President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.   An intelligence briefing seen by The Washington Post states: 'QAnon members have discussed posing as National Guard soldiers, believing that it would be easy for them to infiltrate secure areas.' The National Guard have been told to be alert to anyone who looks 'out of place' as a result. 'Concerns of lone wolf actors are increasing,' the report adds.   Videos and pictures taken of the security measures by unknown individuals in DC have already been shared online and while there are said to be no specific threats maps of the city have also been studied by extremists, according to the paper. The threats against Biden´s inauguration have been fueled by supporters of President Donald Trump, far-right militants, white supremacists and other radical groups.  Many believe Trump´s baseless accusations that the...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested he would investigate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s handling of security of the Capitol building after rioters stormed it on Jan. 6. “I understand what happened on January the 6th was one of the low points in my time in office,” the South Carolina Republican said on Sunday Morning Futures. “It was horrendous to see people ... take over the Capitol, the House, and the Senate, beat officers, defile the seat of government. How in the hell could that happen? Where was Nancy Pelosi? It's her job to provide Capitol security. We will get to the bottom of that.” The sergeant at arms of the House is under the direction of Pelosi and is responsible for securing the Capitol along with the Capitol Police. Graham’s comments sparked the ire of Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, who slammed the senator for attempting to...
    Three days before Joe Biden’s inauguration, the American capital is under siege. The rare passers-by on Saturday oscillate between astonishment, boredom and impatience. Sportswear, wireless headphones and hair band, Susan spins at a good pace, maneuvering the jogging stroller where her baby is harnessed. But at the corner of New Jersey and Louisiana avenues, just north of the Capitol, a police officer raises his arm and interrupts his stride. Impossible to continue straight towards the esplanade of the National Mall, he explains politely: the area is barricaded and will remain so at least until the day after the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday.

    John Earle Sullivan, 26,  will be released on bail after being charged in relation to the siege of the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday.  A left-wing activist charged over his role in the siege of the U.S. Capitol Building has made his first appearance in court.  John Earle Sullivan, 26, told CNN that he entered the Capitol during last Wednesday's siege merely to document the chaos, but was later arrested after video emerged purportedly showing him egging on the rioters.  Sullivan has been charged with one count of knowingly entering a restricted building, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement.  On Friday, he appeared via Zoom from a jail cell in Utah for his first court hearing.  A judge granted Sullivan bail on strict conditions, despite prosecutors pleading for him to remain behind bars until after Joe Biden's Inauguration. ...
    After the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last week, Washington, D.C., is beefing up security measures ahead of the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Up to 20,000 armed National Guard troops are set to be deployed to the Washington area to prevent further violence. Images on Wednesday showed troops resting with their guns on the marble floors of congressional hallways after the attack that left five people dead. Rep. Brian Mast, a wounded military veteran who lost both legs in Afghanistan, was seen giving a history lesson to the troops deployed to the Capitol on Wednesday. And Mast showing members of the National Guard around is a reminder that he is just one of many members of Congress with combat experience who have found themselves in a tight spot on more than one occasion prior to Jan. 6. Though the 117th Congress has fewer members with...

    Eric Trump has claimed that his father is a victim of 'cancel culture' after banks, social media companies, the PGA, and New York City authorities moved against him following Wednesday's insurrection.   The president's son told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Trump was being punished by liberal-fearing companies and organizations, but defiantly insisted his father will leave the presidency with a powerful brand backed by millions of voters who will follow him 'to the ends of the Earth.'

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued railing against the riot that took place at the Capitol last week, saying half of the members of the House nearly died in the siege. "And so, if we allow insurrection against the United States with impunity, with no accountability, we are inviting it to happen again," Ocasio-Cortez said on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. "We came close to nearly half of the House dying on Wednesday." Five people died during the storming of the Capitol, including an Air Force veteran who was shot by police.

    New York (CNN Business)A sick brew of misinformation and hate, cooked up for years by pro-Trump media and enabled by Big Tech, culminated last Wednesday in the siege of the US Capitol, the symbol of American democracy."The more research I did this week, the more I realized that Fox News shows and Facebook groups are just part of the pro-Trump Fantasyland," said CNN Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter on "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "There's a lot of blame to go around."Stelter said Big Tech and conservative media hosted and repeated President Donald Trump's lies that led to the siege. Trump egged on the rioters with an election fraud message that was disseminated on right-wing media and social media platforms. Those messages soon were spread to the deepest, ugliest layers of the internet, from InfoWars to 8chan message boards."People say Donald Trump plus the Internet brings out the extremists," CNN correspondent Elle...
    New York (CNN Business)The Capitol insurrection didn't come out of thin air: It was a result of rage and a web of delusion that many supporters of President Donald Trump are entangled in. "A web of delusion had real life consequences on Wednesday and it will continue to have real-life consequences," CNN's Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter said on "Reliable Sources" Sunday.A large number of Trump followers cleaved to misinformation they were fed by the president, right-wing media and social media platforms. That led some to believe the most extreme creed imaginable: that Trump was "an agent of God," reported The Atlantic's editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, who spoke to Trump supporters ahead of the Capitol siege on January 6."Many people I talked to were completely untethered from observable reality," Goldberg told Stelter Sunday. That's just the tip of the iceberg of delusions that created a deluge of chaos in Washington last...
    Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz condemned President Trump's actions during Wednesday's Capitol Hill riot, calling it the "worst day" of Trump's presidency. "I think most Republicans were appalled by the president's actions on Jan. 6. I think it was one of the most shameful days," the Utah Republican said on Fox and Friends Sunday. "I think it was the worst day of the Trump presidency." Chaffetz, who went on to call the president's handling of the situation "reprehensible" and "absolutely wrong," stopped short of calling for Trump's removal from office, arguing that legislators should instead focus on healing and delivering policy victories to the American people, such as working out kinks in the national distribution of the coronavirus vaccine. "I think we're going to spend, nine, 10 days, arguing with each other, instead of focusing on things like, 'How do we get more of the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine to actually...

    Five people died either during or after the violent Capitol Hill siege on Wednesday, including a woman who was fatally shot inside the building, a Capitol Police officer who died as a result of his injuries, and three others who died from “medical emergencies.” U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick Brian Sicknick was an officer with the Capitol Police who died Thursday evening after he “was injured while physically engaging with protesters,” the USCP said in a statement announcing his death.

It’s worse because I’m a Black girl.” “It’s just me,” she told NBC News, “and all of a sudden. I’m just getting cornered by...

    A banner left in the Capitol by one of the invading rioters Wednesday. Republicans scurried to distance themselves Wednesday from the horrifying takeover of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., by a riotous mob of fanatical Donald Trump supporters. “Those who made this attack on our government need to be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” tweeted Sen. Lindsey Graham. Those storming the Capitol need to stop NOW,” chimed in Sen. Ted Cruz. The Senate Republicans’ Twitter account posted: “This is not who we are.” This is, however, exactly who they are. What happened Wednesday was the apotheosis of the GOP’s two-decades-and-longer descent into right-wing authoritarianism, fueled by eliminationist hate talk, reality-bereft conspiracist sedition, anti-democratic rhetoric and politics, and the full-throated embrace under Trump of the politics of intimidation and thuggery. It came home to roost not just for Republicans, but for us all. This radical authoritarianism was evident...
    The political violence at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday after law enforcement officers were overrun by a mob of Trump supporters "was a total failure of security," said Michael Morell, CBS News senior security contributor and former CIA acting director.  Rioters were able to push past Capitol Police, shattering windows and swarming through the House and Senate chambers. Members of Congress who had convened to count the Electoral College votes had to abruptly suspend their joint session and evacuate to secure locations. Morell said U.S. Capitol Police and other agencies failed to anticipate and prepare for what was coming.  President Trump had called for his supporters to come to Washington and inflamed their outrage with his  baseless claims the election was "stolen." He addressed the crowd Wednesday morning and encouraged them to march to Capitol Hill. "They should have known that those protesters would show at the Capitol and...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams condemned the lack of arrests amid the violent riots on the United States Capitol, contrasting the absence of police response to law enforcement’s role during the Black Lives Matter protests. “The Capitol Police and other law enforcement that we can see on hand — it’s still, it’s puzzling, sort of hard to understand why we haven’t seen more arrests and why the protesters have been allowed to persist on the steps and at the doors of the Capitol,” Maddow said on Wednesday night. “And here you see protesters apparently taunting or yelling at the protesters — or yelling at the police. These scenes are — this has been going on for three hours now. It feels like about three years.” The anchor then commented on how hard it’s been for the network to report on events inside the Capitol due to surrounding chaos, before inviting Rep....

    Donald Trump weighed in on the sudden departure of opinions editor Bari Weiss from the New York Times, claiming she left because the 'under siege' outlet is 'Fake News' and fails to report on his work in office 'correctly'.  'Wow. The @nytimes is under siege. The real reason is that it has become Fake News. They never covered me correctly - they blew it. People are fleeing, a total mess!' Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.  The president was part of a wave of Republican figures and allies to praise Weiss' exit from the esteemed paper, accusing it of lacking a 'diversity of thought'.  Weiss, who joined the times in 2017, resigned on Tuesday in a lengthy letter describing the outlet as a 'hostile' and 'illiberal environment' where she was allegedly bullied by coworkers for 'wrongthink'.

    CAIRO (AP) — Forces allied with Libya’s U.N.-supported government said Thursday they regained control of all of Tripoli’s entrance and exit points after taking back the airport, claiming that the siege by rival troops trying to capture the capital for over a year has effectively ended. The announcement marks another blow to the east-based Libyan Arab Armed Forces, led by commander Khalifa Hifter who has recently lost several strategic spots in western Libya. Late on Wednesday, the Tripoli-allied troops said they had retaken Tripoli International Airport, which fell to Hifter’s forces last year. “In these historic moments, we announce that all municipal boundaries of Tripoli have been liberated,” Mohamed Gnono, spokesman for the Tripoli-allied forces, said in a video posted on social media.
