  2. Did I just hear one of former President Trump's lawyers say the House Managers waited too long to file Articles of Impeachment, AND they Rushed to impeach too soon? This young member of Congress was impressive to me. He seems to remember who sat in each seat throughout history. Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., one of nine House impeachment managers prosecuting the case against former President Donald Trump, spoke Tuesday in a hearing about the constitutionality of holding an impeachment trial against a former president. Many Republicans have argued that the trial should not go forward because Trump is no longer in office, an argument that is a key piece of Trump's defense, but Democrats are arguing to proceed. Neguse noted precedents set by past impeachments, such as that of former War Secretary William Belknap, former Sen. William Blount, then-sitting Judge Robert Archbald and former District Judge George English. He argued that when the founding fathers wrote the Constitution they did not exclude public officials after they left office.

  5. I believe I must shall not bear false witness against my neighbor. this includes forbidding bribery, forgery, libel, slander. It encourages telling the truth and nothing but the truth. I will leave punishment up to law enforcement, elected lawmakers, and pray for those who have to decide. Opinion by Jennifer Rubin We need to expand the notion of accountability for the Capitol attack As the shock over the attack on our Capitol wears off, blinding fury takes its place. The risk is not that we overreact but that we underreact. As a preliminary matter, we must reject the argument from defensive Republicans that their Big Lie about a fraudulent election is unrelated to the violence that ensued. Belief that the election was stolen was the driving force behind the mob on Jan. 6. And where did they get that idea from? The 126 House members who signed a brief seeking to overthrow the election; the efforts from Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to object to the electoral college votes (even after the violence); talk radio figures who reinforced the Big Lie; Fox News hosts who played along to stoke the fire; and Newsmax and One America News, home to the wildest election conspiracy theories...

    New California Nurse to Patient Ratio

    Nurses applaud as state marks the end of waivers extending safe staffing ratios After months of working to meet the new allowances of patient-nurse ratios approved by the state, California nurses will soon take a sigh of relief. The California Department of Public Health announced that as of Monday, the department will no longer accept any new expedited staffing waivers. Furthermore, all existing approved staffing waivers will expire on February 8, unless CDPH determines on an individual waiver basis that there is an unprecedented circumstance. Hospitals must maintain efforts to meet required staffing levels at all times... ... If CDPH has any indication that hospitals have not maintained efforts to increase staffing, CDPH will investigate and require hospitals to provide documentation of their efforts. Additionally, CDPH may do unannounced audits to assess these efforts. “This is an incredible victory for patients and nurses, because we know that safe staffing saves lives,” said Zenei Triunfo-Cortez, RN and a president of the California Nurses Association and its national organization, National Nurses United. Bakersfield Memorial Hospital nurse Sandy Reding told 23ABC last week these waivers were harsh for nurses on the floor and could actually be harmful to patients... https://www.turnto23.com/news/coronavirus/a-small-victory-nurses-applaud-as-state-marks-the-end-of-waivers-extending-safe-staffing-ratios The ratio regulations: https://govt.westlaw.com/calregs/Document/I8612C410941F11E29091E6B951DDF6CE?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default)

Vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna have begun being administered, though the White House has widely left plans for distribution and inoculations to state governments... ...

  14. Armed protests being planned at all 50 state capitols, FBI bulletin says An internal FBI note obtained by ABC News shows warnings of "a huge uprising." The FBI has received information in recent days on a group calling for “storming” state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event President Donald Trump is removed from office prior to Inauguration Day. The group is also planning to “storm” government offices in every state the day President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated, regardless of whether the states certified electoral votes for Biden or Trump. "The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January," the bulletin read. "They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur."... ... Federal law enforcement officials have advised police agencies to increase their security posture at statehouses around the country following the riot at the U.S. Capitol, law enforcement sources told ABC News. https://abcnews.go.com/US/armed-protests-planned-50-state-capitols-fbi-bulletin/story?id=75179771

    Violent Insurrectionists Storm United States Capitol

    Inside a Deadly Siege: How a String of Failures Led to a Dark Day at the Capitol Poor planning among a constellation of government agencies and a restive crowd encouraged by President Trump set the stage for the unthinkable. ... Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington and her aides saw a photograph of blood stains on the temporary grandstands at the Capitol, a makeshift structure built for the inauguration of a new president in two weeks. The enormity of the deadly failure sank in. Rioters had broken through the thin police line on the Capitol steps and were descending on hundreds of lawmakers conducting the ceremonial, quadrennial act of certifying the presidential vote — and the mayor and her aides were not able to stop the attack. Ms. Bowser and her police chief called the Pentagon, asking for additional D.C. National Guard troops to be mobilized to support what officials were realizing was inadequate protection at the Capitol. But they were told that the request would first have to come from the Capitol Police. In a call to Chief Steven Sund of the Capitol Police, they learned that his force was under siege, lawmakers were being rushed to safety, and rioters were overrunning anyone in authority. He kept repeating the same phrase: “The situation is dire.” Cutting through the cross talk, one person on the call posed a blunt question: “Chief Sund, are you requesting National Guard troops on the grounds of the Capitol?” There was a pause. “Yes,” Chief Sund replied, “I am.” Yet the Capitol Police and the city’s Metropolitan Police had rebuffed offers days before for more help from the National Guard beyond a relatively modest contingent to provide traffic control, so no additional troops had been placed on standby. It took just over four hours for them to arrive. It was just one failure in a dizzying list that day — and during the weeks leading up to it — that resulted in the first occupation of the United States Capitol since British troops set the building ablaze during the War of 1812. But the death and destruction this time was caused by Americans, rallying behind the inflammatory language of an American president, who refused to accept the will of more than 81 million other Americans who had voted him out of office... https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/10/us/politics/capitol-siege-security.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage
