“It’s a place of isolation,” said Father Patrick Killilea, the pastor at St. Francis Church in Kalaupapa, the county’s tiny town. “We know the cliffs and the ocean have protected us.” https://t.co/OPJtWrpW0k

The number of current / former public servants involved whose job it is to uphold the law & protect Americans is causing alarm. Rep. Ja­son Crow says this will force changes to how recruits are vetted. Def Sec Lloyd Austin said he plans to stamp out extremism in the military.

Over the last few months, these folks frequently posted on social media the false claim that Trump won the 2020 election. Many of them — including most of the examples in our story — made no effort to hide that they were inside the Capitol, per DOJ. https://t.co/vpMKC71EhN https://t.co/SI2WKkvXpS

At least 18 current and former cops, firefighters and service members have been arrested on federal charges in connection with the mob attack on the Capitol. Story by @ZushaElinson, @bkesling & me. https://t.co/3D5IJsgKOE

SCOOP: The acting head of DOJ's civil division spoke with Trump about a plan to stop the steal; and then told Acting AG Rosen that he was gonna be replaced in order for the plan to be implemented. And then DOJ senior leaders said they would quit en masse https://t.co/PYKdMoutm5

Breaking News: Larry King has died at 87. In five decades on radio and TV, he interviewed presidents, psychics, movie stars and swindlers — anyone with a story to tell. https://t.co/XCKAuG8t9z

The new Biden administration will have to tackle domestic extremism. A lot frankly, wild, suggestions are being floated around on the Hill and media interviews. If I may, here’s a few policies that I would suggest to consider. 1/x
