A timeline: The insurrection at the Capitol

On Jan. 6, 2021 the U.S Capitol was breached for the first time since 1812. Here are the most pivotal moments of one of the darkest days in American history. BY TREVIN SMITH

House and Senate Democrats may push ahead this week with a censure resolution to bar former President Donald Trump from holding future office over his role in the U.S. Capitol riot, anticipating acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial, several sources familiar with the matter told McClatchy.

The effort to draft the resolution that would invoke a provision of the 14th Amendment began quietly in January and gained momentum over the weekend, as Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine gauge whether the measure could attract bipartisan support.

The reception has been lukewarm so far from Democrats, who would prefer to see the former president convicted in the impeachment trial, and from Republicans, who fear political consequences in barring Trump from office.

Rep Stephen Lynch D-MA must be the unluckiest guy in the world

Gets Covid 9 days after second Pfizer vaccination. And he practiced social distancing and wore a mask.

Articles about his timeline may be like one of those math problems that can't be solved because data is missing, but that's what I got out of it.

My SIL who manages drug trials said that her only guess was that he had the virus before his nine day window was up, but not enough to show a positive.

Trump's new lawyer gave advise to Epstein for years!


With his impeachment trial looming in just nine days, former president Trump announced he had a new team of lawyers on Sunday, including David Schoen, who met with disgraced businessman and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein about representing him before his death.


Based on the tone of their five-hour conversation, Schoen is skeptical about the circumstances of Epstein’s death. “I don’t believe it was suicide. … I think someone killed him. I don’t like to speculate. I’m not a conspiracy theorist,” he told the Atlanta Jewish Times in an interview Sunday.

“It was just the two of us in a room, though other people came and went” during their Aug. 1 meeting at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, Schoen said. “We talked about the future, all sorts of plans for the case, things he hadn’t thought about before. “He was very upbeat, eager to go. I’ve heard from other people who told me how much that meeting meant to him.”
