Washington Post:

"One item of particular interest to impeachment managers is a 10-minute video released Monday by Just Security ... which shows how Trump’s words were heard and interpreted by those who ransacked the Capitol."

New videos (taken from Parler) show specific chain of events

Starts with: Trump’s statements to supporters about @Mike_Pence

Leads to: violent threats to the Vice President during siege of Capitol.

This is chilling.

Full 10-min video we produced is available @just_security.

New video footage: shows the crowd’s immediate reactions to Trump’s most potent remarks at January 6 speech.

Verdict: Strong evidence of incitement.

Here’s a 2-min clip from the full 10-min video @just_security.

Don't read anything about just-released pardon for #Bannon without reading this by @AWeissmann_:

The text "clearly leaves—unpardoned—numerous potential federal charges."

"The decision about whether to charge these new counts is relatively easy."

2. As for the intelligence failure and law enforcement failure, look what Miller broadcast for all to see days before January 6.👇

Per the same FBI criminal complaint now filed.

FBI:

“In a string of tweets” to @AOC, Capitol rioter Garret Miller “further directed, “Assassinate [House member].”

Faces up to 5 years in jail under 18 USC 875(c) in addition to several other criminal charges.

“Did he go and storm the Capitol himself? No. But he...had an opportunity to tamp things down and he chose not to. And that’s really the fatal flaw. I mean, he’s in charge. And when you’re in charge, you’re responsible for what goes wrong.”

2. A great scoop by CNN's @MichaelRWarren and @jamiegangel

Trump egged on the crowd, which was "widely understood to include people who were planning to fight physically, and who were prepared to die in response to his false claims of a 'stolen election.''"

Thanks to @maddow for this great discussion of @AWeissmann_’s latest Just Security article.

As Biden and Congress have the chance to draft new Authorization for Use of Military Force to replace open-ended war authorization.

I teamed up with three great minds — @bridgewriter @StephenPomper @steve_vladeck.

NEWS: Tom Cotton’s hold on quick Senate approval of Avril Haines as DNI is over his written question to her about whether she supports prosecuting the CIA officers involved in the torture program.

Just a reminder that Senator Cotton was one of the 49 Republicans who voted to confirm Haines's predecessor as Director of National Intelligence even though he lacked the "extensive national security expertise" required by the statute—and *lied* about his lack of such experience.

2. In contrast, Sen. Marco Rubio, acting Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee on expedited Senate confirmation of Haines:

“It’s important we do this as soon as possible.”

Exactly right.

Senator #TomCotton is placing country at risk with these shenanigans.

Holding up speedy confirmation of Avril Haines for DNI.

Also: “It would be a break from tradition if the Senate can't confirm a single one of Biden's nominees on Inauguration Day.”

Paul Manafort
Roger Stone
and others

Are not out of the woods.

The incomparable @AWeissmann_ shows how their #pardons are actually quite narrow, and how simple it would be for the Justice Department to pursue charges in days ahead.

Trump pardoning a guy indicted by the Trump Justice Department for defrauding Trump supporters over the fake Trump wall is a fitting ending to the Trump presidency.
