FBI investigates tip that a woman possibly stole a laptop from Nancy Pelosi’s office to potentially sell it to Russia

By Katelyn Polantz | CNN In a new criminal court case against a woman alleged to have entered the US Capitol on January 6, the FBI noted that a tipster raised the possibility of a laptop being stolen from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office to potentially sell to Russia. There’s no indication a laptop was actually taken from Pelosi’s office. And the FBI says in the court record the “matter remains under investigation.” It’s one of the more bizarre details to emerge in the avalanche of court fil...

What Biden can and can’t get from an evenly divided Senate

By ANDREW TAYLOR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — So what does a 50-50 Senate get incoming President Joe Biden? Washington has barely had time to process the implications of Democratic control after two Georgia runoff elections that are delivering the Senate to Democrats. Hours after the races were decided, a mob of zealots ransacked the U.S. Capitol and reshaped the national and political landscape. The unexpected new balance of power giving Democrats only the barest control of Congress has big ...

By LOLITA C. BALDOR WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.

Democrats build impeachment case, alleging ‘dangerous crime’

WASHINGTON — The lead prosecutor for President Donald Trump’s historic second impeachment began building his case for conviction at trial, asserting on Sunday that Trump’s incitement of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol was “the most dangerous crime” ever committed by a president against the United States.

Supporting freedom isn’t a crime, yet

California Democratic Party chair Rusty Hicks ruined it for everybody. Things were going so well for the Democrats. Big tech companies were banning conservatives from social media. The anti-Trump Lincoln Project launched a blacklist aimed at permanently denying employment to anyone who worked in or near the Trump administration. Major corporations including Marriott cut off political donations to the House Minority Leader and more than 100 lawmakers in the GOP caucus. Yes, it was going well, thi...

Guard troops pour into Washington as states answer the call

By LOLITA C. BALDOR | Associated Press By the busload and planeload, National Guard troops were pouring into the nation’s capital on Saturday, as governors answered the urgent pleas of U.S. defense officials for more troops to help safeguard Washington even as they keep anxious eyes on possible violent protests in their own states. Military leaders spent chunks of Thursday evening and Friday calling states in an unprecedented appeal for more National Guard troops to help lock down much of the ci...

By Mark Morales | CNN As DC Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone lay on the ground at the US Capitol building, stunned and injured, he knew a group of rioters were stripping him of his gear.

By MICHAEL BIESECKER, JAKE BLEIBERG and JAMES LAPORTA | The Associated Press WASHINGTON  — As President Donald Trump’s supporters massed outside the Capitol last week and sang the national anthem, a line of men wearing olive-drab helmets and body armor trudged purposefully up the marble stairs in a single-file line, each man holding the jacket collar of the one ahead.

Trump’s impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day, just as Democrat Joe Biden takes the oath of office in an ever-more-extraordinary end to the defeated president’s tenure in the White House. The timing is not set and depends heavily on when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decides to transmit the article of impeachment to the Senate. Democrats hoping to avoid interrupting Biden’s inauguration have suggested holding back until the new president has a chance to get...

Don’t hate the political players, hate the political game

Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it’s not that they will miss Trump’s unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it’s that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the...

Donald Trump stands largely silent, alone after second impeachment

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, JILL COLVIN and ZEKE MILLER | Associated Press WASHINGTON — His place in the history books rewritten, President Donald Trump endured his second impeachment largely alone and silent. For more than four years, Trump has dominated the national discourse like no one before him. Yet when his legacy was set in stone on Wednesday, he was stunningly left on the sidelines. Trump now stands with no equal, the only president to be charged twice with a high crime or misdemeanor, a new co...

Expecting trouble, Washington locks down ahead of inauguration

WASHINGTON — All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing. There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work. The U.S. Capitol that proved such a soft target last week was visible only through lines of tall, black fence. Two blocks from the White House, a group of uniformed National Guard troops emerged from a tour bus and headed into a...

Impeachment comes full circle for L.A. Rep. Adam Schiff

A year ago Wednesday, Rep. Adam Schiff was gearing up for the battle of his political life. President Donald Trump had just been impeached in the House, and Schiff was preparing for marathon arguments in the Senate chamber, where he would lead the case to convict the president and remove him from office. The rest is American history: Conviction failed — and a year like no other ensued: A pandemic killed hundreds of thousands in the U.S. The death of George Floyd set off  a massive social justice...

Without Twitter, Trump remains largely invisible

By Kaitlan Collins and Kevin Liptak | CNN On the day he will be impeached for a history-making second time, President Donald Trump lacks a comprehensive legal strategy, has nothing on his public schedule and is without his preferred social media methods of responding — in part because his son-in-law put a stop to efforts establishing his presence on fringe platforms after he was banned from Twitter. It amounts to near-invisibility for the President at the most perilous moment of his presidency, ...
