Replying to @alexnazaryan: The sadness is inexpressible. This is not how it’s supposed to be. This is not who we thought we were. https://t.co/PYhK8…

“We won by sending a message to the Senators and the Congressmen. We won by sending a message to Pence. ... That, if they don’t do ... as their oath to do— If they don’t uphold the Constitution, then we will remove them from office—one way, or another.”

There’s a word for this, what is it? It’s right on the tip of my tongue. Oh right: terrorism.

If @HawleyMO was so concerned about election integrity in Pennsylvania, I assume he would have raised the issue at some over the preceding months with his fellow GOP Senator @PatToomey of Pennsylvania, right? I mean, if the concerns were sincere, that would have happened.

.@HawleyMO could've checked PA's constitution, talked to PA's senators, read judges' rulings upholding PA's election, listened to us explain the law on the @TheLeadCNN.

Instead he lied about Pennsylvania in exchange for a moment in the sun with Donald Trump and his mob.

About one minute after Pence was moved, a handful of rioters made it up the stairs to reach the second-floor landing outside the Senate entrance, the Washington Post reports. Pence and his family were in a hideaway "less than 100 feet from that landing."

They pushed lies that led a deranged mob, some of whom wanted to kill the Vice President — Trump led the Big Lie but he had dozens of accomplices on the Hill, in the WH, and in MAGA media. Dozens.

This piece gets at something I've been wondering about recently. We're almost a year into the pandemic—why aren't medical-grade masks widely available to the American public at this point?

In a now-deleted FB video, prosecutors say, Ryan is heard saying “We are going to f---ing go in here. Life or death, it doesn’t matter."
Just before entering the building, she adds: “Y’all know who to hire for your realtor. Jenna Ryan for your realtor.”

Last night, I received disturbing news, confirmed to me directly by General Perna of Operation Warp Speed: States will not be receiving increased shipments of vaccines from the national stockpile next week, because there is no federal reserve of doses.

The Capitol attack is the latest example of a violent, right-wing extremist movement that has been growing on US soil for years. Current and former counter-terror officials say the threat now rivals that from international terrorism. @jimsciutto reports.
