After decades of disinvestment, our roads, bridges, and water systems are crumbling.

We must pass the American Jobs Plan. Together, we will rebuild our country’s infrastructure and create millions of good-paying union jobs in the process.

Texas AG Ken Paxton said yesterday that if he hadn’t been successful with lawsuits to block mail-in ballots, Trump definitely would have lost the election in Texas.

Snip


"The ex-soldier, heavily armed, was on my street for three hours, right in front of my house, waiting for me to arrive home from work."

That night police say Jürgen Conings left his barracks with a selection of heavy weapons, and headed straight for the virologist's home.

Marc Van Ranst usually returns from work around the time the man was waiting for him. But on this occasion he came back early and was inside with his family.

"Unfortunately, he's a trained sniper with heavy armour, military-grade material and weapons. So, these are the kind of people that you would prefer not to have hunting you," he told me wryly.

A very wise friend was recently explaining this to me. The margins are so small; as few as 25 people can come in a drastically change politics on the local level which has huge implications. This is the very definition of working smarter not harder.

In my conversation with @AriMelber and @GovHowardDean I noted that one really needs to appreciate the strength of the #GOP at the COUNTY level which is why the impact of redistricting and changes in voting laws matter. Dems need to rethink how they play the game. @TheBeatWithAri

With the announcement that Annie Leibovitz is doing a photo shoot with Jen Psaki, Fox brings on a jealous Kayleigh McEnany to whine about not getting any profile pieces herself, and how the press was mean to her compared with Jen.

Timothy Wayne Williams of Colorado, arrested today in Denver, reportedly told the feds he worked for a hydroponics equipment supplier "but lost his job because he wouldn’t take a COVID test.” He was wearing a hat for a grow light manufacturer.


"WILLIAMS stated he was in a round room, but WILLIAMS did not believe that it was the Rotunda… WILLIAMS was, however, mistaken.”



Ryan J. Reilly
@ryanjreilly
Williams reportedly told the feds he wasn't involved in violence or property damage and that he "did not take any souvenirs or anything from the Capitol.”

Stephanie Baez, who was recorded saying she was “looking for a Proud Boy,” was arrested today in Alabama in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.



Ryan J. Reilly
@ryanjreilly
"The defendant further claimed that she had authority to be inside the Capitol because she had looked up the Capitol's hours ahead of time and confirmed that the Capitol would be open... The defendant later stated that it is possible that she read the website wrong.”

Insurrectionist Spotlight: Anthime Gionet, aka Baked Alaska, in court today

Hello again from virtual court, this time before Mag. Judge Harvey in the case of J6 defendant Anthime Gionet, who prosecutors have also accused of running afoul of his pretrial release conditions. See:

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Late night inbox action: Govt supports request by Pretrial Services to impose stricter conditions on J6 defendant Tim Gionet — incl. home detention and a ban on posting videos — after a recent video where he appears to threaten a friend and calls the cops https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/20797003/6-2-21-us-response-anthime-gionet.pdf





Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Gionet's atty filed a response disputing he'd violated any release condition, saying he needs to make videos for the web to earn a living, and calling probation's request for stricter conditions "asinine" https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/20797643/6-3-21-anthime-gionet-response.pdf

(Disclosure again that Gionet is a former BuzzFeed employee, also known by the nickname "Baked Alaska"

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Pretrial services officer isn't giving many details, but says it appears Gionet has been "agitating" various situations and coming into contact with law enforcement. Officer notes that he's been banned from a Starbucks in Arizona for a year (for unspecified reasons)

Replying to @ZoeTillman
Pretrial services officers from AZ says while Gionet didn't technically violate any specific release conditions, they're worried about his danger to the community because he's posting videos showing him trying to agitate and offend and provoke violent responses

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
AUSA says that Gionet has come right up to the line of violating his release conditions, noting that a police report during one of his encounters with law enforcement notes they considered arresting him for disorderly conduct due to "combative" behavior

Gionet's lawyer focuses on the fact that so far no one is saying he actually violated any release conditions, stresses that Gionet had contacts with law enforcement because he called the cops after a friend hit him

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Gionet's lawyer says making videos is his only source of income (govt wants a posting ban), and says govt is trying to chill him from calling police when in danger.

Govt notes Gionet filmed encounters with police to create "viral content" and used "unwitting" cops as "extras"

Gionet's lawyer questions why they're even in court when no one is alleging he actually violated his release conditions. Judge replies that they're there because Gionet *recorded it all and put it on the internet*

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Conclusion: Judge won't bar Gionet from posting videos online, but will order him to report all future contacts with law enforcement (as a reminder of his situation) and says he can't have any guns/weapons in his home, given propensity for trying to provoke assaultive conduct

Replying to @ZoeTillman
Judge makes pretty clear he's over Gionet's schtick. He said he watched the video at issue and called it "inane," and sighed deeply before telling Gionet that he can call police if he needs to, but the concern was about him provoking events leading up to him calling the police

Zoe Tillman
@ZoeTillman
Gionet says something muffled on the line re: the call to police being part of a "prank," which the judge did not take kindly to. His lawyer says it was a reference to Gionet's detractors making false reports. Judge basically says whatever, you need to report all future contacts
