Tom Carper asks why such a rise in racist violence: FBI Director Wray: "Why is something that we all struggle to really get our arms around.. one important part of that phenomenon.. is the role of social media, and as I said terrorism today moves at the speed of social media."

Kevin Brady on Dems' scramble for a new stimulus, coronavirus bill: "It’s a waste of time. Everything she could pass, 10 more partisan bills. That won't get us closer to helping these small businesses and families. It's just another wasted exercise." via @Casey_J_Wooten 

I toted up seven or eight of the contortions Republicans put themselves though today over TRump's refusal to concede a peaceful transition of power. Remarkable.

Missed this from Harry Reid's talk w/ Chris Cuomo on changing Senate rules: "President Biden is going to have to make a decision what he wants to do because it would be up to him frankly." Biden's a bit of a traditionalist, tho I'm sure he remembers the blockades Obama endured.

I guess the president is just gonna tweet storm about Flynn all through the Ginsburg ceremony.

The person who did a push-up in front of RBG's casket was RBG’s trainer, the speaker’s office tells the press pool.


SCOOP: With VP Pence going to NYC to hail first responders on 9/11 tomoro, we reveal that the Treasury Dept has secretly withheld nearly $4 million from the FDNY's 9/11 treatment program, and has refused to give it back, or explain.

Almost the same moment gunfire erupted in Santa Clarita (about 11 ET), Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith objected to moving a background check bill added to the Senate calendar on March 4. Said it shouldn't be "fast tracked" and it might stop her from lending a rifle to a grandson.

Sally Yates has said twice now that she still is not allowed to reveal who the US was surveilling when it got Michael Flynn's convos with the Russian ambassador. She asked DOJ two days ago, she said, and she still can't say, though she said she would love to.

‼️ Azar refuses to promise a coronavirus vaccine will be affordable for anyone: "We would want to ensure that we work to make it affordable, but we can't control that price, because we need the private sector to invest.. Price controls won't get us there."

Wow. Pelosi said this out loud. Big step for her. “In the face of 37 indictments, the President’s continued actions to undermine the Special Counsel investigation raise the questions: what does Putin have on the President, politically, personally or financially?”

Says @Ocasio2018 : "It is a joke when Republicans say they have urgency around this bill. The only folks they have urgency around are folks like Ruth's Chris steakhouse and Shake Shack.. If you had urgency you would legislate like rent was due on May 1."
