“We’re in the fucking Capitol,” say these two Oath Keepers — who were arrested yesterday for being in the fucking Capitol https://t.co/UIjbuhc6qc

AND senators are likely to hear ad nauseam many of the rioters say they were inside the Capitol at Trump’s invitation and with what they understood to be his permission. https://t.co/V2u4ETDgKM

The House prosecutors and Senate jurors are *all* also victims of the alleged high crime. The riot footage features insurrectionists who terrorized *their* staff/families, banged on *their* office doors and assaulted the police who protect them. https://t.co/V2u4ETDgKM

Democrats used audio and video to devastating effect during Trump’s first trial. This time, the body of video evidence is even more damning: -A tape of Trump pressuring to GA officials to overturn election -Hundreds of hours (and counting) of riot video https://t.co/V2u4ETDgKM

NEW: Can Congress try an ex-President? Will Democrats seek witnesses against Trump? How much time will each side have to argue — particularly when Trump can’t seem to cobble together a legal team? @AndrewDesiderio and I with a primer on Trial 2.0 https://t.co/V2u4ETDgKM

INBOX: Statement from Acting AG Rosen on inauguration security.

QAnon adherents discussed posing as National Guard to try to infiltrate inauguration, according to FBI intelligence briefing. A nice scoop from ⁦@CarolLeonnig⁩ & ⁦@mattzap⁩: https://t.co/VJyxohg7jh

The FBI also interviewed a man who was seen wielding a taser during a violent entry of the Capitol.

He remembered seeing one of the police officers seriously injured in the riots (the officer was tased) but said he was sure he wasn't the one who did it. https://t.co/N6AndWaMxw https://t.co/yaNXXLfTPq

TONIGHT: The FBI posted images of 8-10 "Oath Keepers" in paramilitary equipment approaching the Capitol together. One of them, Donovan Crowl, was later interviewed by The New Yorker.

NEW - Dominion sends a legal letter to Mike Lindell, the latest in a series to people like Powell and Giuliani over their false claims about the machines https://t.co/brg1Iwf4ED

Associates who've spoken with Trump say he's used the same vulgarity he used about Pence to describe McCarthy, saying he bowed to pressure with his House floor speech.

NEW: The FBI is investigating a claim that a PA woman who rioted at the Capitol on Jan. 6 stole a laptop from Speaker Pelosi's office and intended to sell it to the Russians. The FBI says she appears to have fled. More about this bizarre case: https://t.co/mJwjcShEDi
