Democrats poured half a 1.9 billion USD COVID-19 relief package for President Joe Biden into a house committee on Thursday to advance grants of 1,400 USD to millions of Americans as well as other Republicans-called politically destructive, excessively expensive and blatant supportive measures.
The Committees on Ways of Means approved Biden’s 940 billion USD in a 25 to 18 party voting plan and illuminated a heated week of tens of house committees agreeing to the widespread initiative. An additional Democratic priority was settled upon by the Education and Labor Committee on Wednesday—a five-year raise in the federal minimum wage from $7.25-$15 hours.
“Yes, that’s going to be. We are really glad of all that,” Nancy Pelosi, Chair of the House, D-Calif said when asked whether a higher minimum wage will include the total House bill. Even in some of the more conservative Parliament, the fate is nevertheless precarious.
The House bill could give local and state governments hundreds of trillions and improve immunization programs, increase children’s tax credit, as well as expand welfare funding and unemployment insurance. Democratic leaders expect passage in the House later this month, with ratification from the Senate and a Biden bill in the middle of March.
Republicans unsuccessful, in Committee after Committee, introduced dozens of democratic initiatives reforms to try to reverse the first goal of the current president—a considerable bill to avoid the lethal pandemic and to resurrect a ten million-employee market and cut down numerous companies.
And although the Democrats opposed the amendments, the House and Senate power is marginally smaller. Classified and moderate divides of heavy GOP opposition makes a change in the final contours of the bill.
The changes by the Republicans demonstrated what they’re doing in their opinion as democratic soft points. Their problems were obvious: Democrats overused damaged the labor markets of employees and businesses, were overly generous to some foreigners, advocated for fraud and compensated political allies – allusions that Democrats deem absurd. Their topics were straightforward.
Even while GOP reforms were being repealed, they forced Democrats to stand up to GOP campaign publicity advertisements for elections in 2022.
There have been changes to eliminate the additional 400 USD a week for Democrats to pay for jobs by August and to exclude the smaller firms from the Democrats from efforts to eventually increase their minimum wage from 7.25 USD to 15 USD per hour. Someone else would have restricted US citizens’ emergency assistance to students, barred federal grants to employers with no social security numbers for just about any job-based health care, and affected many immigrants.
GOP plans would have allowed cuts for emergency funding to enable schools to restart securely if schools offer in-house classrooms, even if schools stay closed, giving parents money to invest in education accounts. Others might have guaranteed that the assistance for landlords, homeowners and the aviation industry did not last long just after the pandemic ended and shared 26 billion USD between cities and rural areas, as many Republicans represent, for metropolitan transmission networks.
“Whether the White House realizes this, I wouldn’t know, but then you’re needed to build jobs, and not destroy them,” said Texas Rep. Ways and Means Republican Kevin Brady.
Biden campaigned for the reunification of a nation separated by the four year split of President Trump. He encountered 10 GOP senators two weeks ago in a meeting that appeared to be cordial but didn’t yield any visible movement, addressing the COVID-19 Strategy.
Democrats say efforts to negotiate with Republicans have lost time and contributed to an extraordinary bundle after President Obama tried a compromise on economic stimulation in his first year of 2009. You want to complete this original Biden target without a stumbling block before emergency benefits expire on 14 March.
Kevin McCarthy, leader of R-California, expecting to hold elections in 2010, that he would be the speaker of the GOP-run House, indicated Republicans were able to fight for the restoration of jobs, reopening schools and vaccinating “whoever wants it.”
Democrats argued that the $400 pandemic weekly unemployment insurance offered by Republicans is so lucrative that it will disturb people from finding jobs.
“It is all about not spoiling people, quote-unquote, by giving them much more money,” said Rep. Moore. She said it indicated that people who have lost their jobs “do not merit living above the hunger salary.”
Yet, Republicans raised fears about the scale of the 1.9 trillion USD bundle. The representative Anthony Gonzalez told, “Big does not really mean necessarily good.”
The Budget Office of the Congress expects the economy to add an aggregate of 521,000 jobs a month this year, an indication that the government assistance partially makes good recruiting. However, those gains are presumably attributed to the virus. Employers started 2021 with just 49,000 jobs added as deaths arising from the epidemic curbed economic activities in January.
The proposal portion of the Committee on Energy and Trade, with a total of over 180 billion USD, will include trillions for monitoring, vaccination, touch tracing and care of COVID-19. It will spend 1.75 billion USD on the genomic sequencer, or DNA mapping of virus samples, in detecting potentially more harmful variants of the coronavirus and researching how rapidly they spread.
It will also further the goals of Democracy, such as increasing coverage under the Obama-era Affordable Care Act.
It challenges fiscal carrots to a dozen states, particularly in the south, which have not yet implemented the Medicaid extension in legislation to reach more individuals on low incomes. This suggests that federal aid for countries that have recently extended the initiative to offer health coverage to lower-income citizens would be raised temporarily by 5%.
Significant urban centers like Florida, Texas, and Georgia are some of the Medicaid extension holdout countries. It is unclear whether the same sweetener would suffice to be used by long-standing Republicans against the extension of Medicaid.
The first lady to write a book about her friendship and the bitter breakdown of former Melania Trump ex-grand friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has got rid of her after a Trump-era Civil Procedure was also abandoned by the Biden administration.
As per legal papers submitted this week, the Department of Justice has terminated the violation charges against Wolkoff. The U.S. preceded the government’s filing. Judge of District Colleen Kollar-Kotelly dismissed the lawsuit by order.
The Trump administration sued Wolkoff in October for violating a legal confidentiality arrangement in the release of his September memoir, Melania and Me: the Rise and Fall of My Relationship with the First Lady.
Throughout the book, Wolkoff explained how she helps to organise the opening of Donald Trump, and also how she served as a volunteer to create the first lady’s office, employee and agenda. The first one is Melania Trump.
She explains how she feels misled in the inaugural Trump celebration by her longtime friend’s responsibility for cost overruns, chaos and potential corruption. Wolkoff says that she collaborated with researchers to investigate the latter argument.
However, attorneys in the civil service of the Trump Justice Department believed, by not submitting a copy of her book to the White House for approval or by not having the authorization to publish it, Wolkoff breached her deal with the government.
The lawsuit states, ‘The lawsuit argues Wolkoff had “indiscriminate access to consultative records, even though the first lady was private, relating to the professional functions of the president on behalf of the government.” Wolkoff was also accused of possessing “non-public, privileged and classified data” which she could receive during her tenure.”
Wolkoff states that her tale requires “moral resilience against adversity, bullying and emotional coercion” on Thursday.
The United States of South Africa, USA TODAY said in a tweet that they spent years abusing their influence and bullying me, but that I might discredit them and ruin my image. “To be attacked legitimately by the Trumps that used their power and government to carry out their dirty work (and directly by the DOJ as personal bulldog).
“As my attorney consistently has noted, this lawsuit became entirely baseless and reflected an attempt by the Trumps to enlist the DOJ to fulfill entirely personal goals and interests,” she said. The reality that the DOJ scrapped this trivial, bullying anti-American lawsuit makes me believe we are living again in America, and not in any unlegislated tyranny.” “Reading and telling the facts is an integral American concept.”
Wolkoff’s counsel, Lorin Reisner, said the lawsuit was withdrawn and resolved each day in a declaration by the USA that if he and his client are “really pleased.”
His comment stated, “This lawsuit never should’ve been brought,” “The NDA in question is face-to-face unconstitutional and a resounding triumph for the very first amendment and the interest of the judiciary.”
Trump lost his re-election campaign for Democratic Joe Biden in November. The lawsuit against Wolkoff has stopped now that his government is liable.
The Department of Justice has not offered cause to drop the lawsuit, but it is not unprecedented for a successor government to drop lawsuits brought through one administration.
Wolkoff used the ruling to continue criticizing how the Trumps treated her when she joined the presidential race in 2016. After the book is released, your Twitter account has related tweets.
“I have proved Melania’s cruel acts, and heartless speech, after four years of Trump’s tyranny with me against lilies, emotional torture, slander, subpoenas, continued arrest, and millions of dollars, revealing the Facts (over falsehood) and Revenge,” she wrote on Feb 9. “
She stated in a second tweet, which showed the image of the judge’s order dismissing the case, “Melaniya opened Pandora’s box with the DOJ.’ “The vast compilation of correspondence & documentations I have and share reveals the real tale of when and also why the agreements have been ‘completed’ and ‘made’ and who has taken part in them.
Since then, Trumps have relocated to their Mar-a-Lago resort property in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Mostly during the administration of Trump, many books were written on Melania Trump, but Wolkoff’s book was especially interesting for the first lady to judge from comments made by Stephanie Grisham.
Grisham told the media in an email, “The book is not just furiously self-exalting, it just isn’t real. “It is a bizarre exercise to distort reality and to blame for self-pity for your sake. It is said that her relationship and her very short position have been overstated by her to this extent in the White House.”
After Wolkoff began her book marketing campaign, she revealed hidden tape recordings she had spoken to the first lady while still walking. Trump’s opinions on her work and her media attention are pessimistic.
Trump replied to Wolkoff and the media for “salacious claims.” with her snubbing comment, which was published on the white house website.
“There seems to be a man who has secretly caught our calling, revealing parts that were not related to me, and then wrote a book of idle slutty kids attempting to distort my character.” A man said he had “made me” when she had barely met me, and someone who closed down to me when my husband had acquired the Presidency.”
A new ticket to court offers new insights into how a high-flying entrepreneur and a prominent political fundraiser sought to force his way into Joe Biden’s inner circle in the form of multimillion-dollar transactions pertaining to Libyan money under Moammar Gadhafi’s rule.
What comes next is the sumptuous story of a guy who knew how Washington worked actually — and how he decided to become a DC. The insider has been a legal nightmare.
Imaad Zuberi, a naturalized Pakistani American and Indian descendant from Albany, N.Y., made a significant commitment to politics and charity to try and broker corporate transactions. He preferred Democrats but courted lawmakers as mates across his spectrum when he described himself as head of a risk capital company. In 2016, Zuberi was a hardcore supporter of Hillary Clinton and ruined the anti-Muslim position of nominee Donald Trump. When Trump prevailed, however, Zuberi made a whiplash of 180 and hopped on Trump’s car and donated almost 1 million USD for the inauguration of Trump.
Today, while Zuberi is waiting to obtain a sentence in Washington and somewhere next week with the charges of failure to file as a Foreign Agent, tax evasion, illicit campaign contributions, and barriers to justice, a large majority of his emails, SMS, and other documents have been released.
As one of the most interesting discoveries are SMS from Zuberi, who identifies Fran Guy as a personal secretary or so called “body man” before leaving the White House in 2014, eight years before joining then Vice President Joe Biden.
Zuberi quickly launched a timeless campaign to help Libya’s new leaders unblock government properties worth up to 30 billion USD in turmoil after the collapse of Gaddafi’s ill-gotten dictatorship. However, it took US representatives to bless the agreement of releasing the funds of the Libyan investment authority.
The WhatsApp messaging shows that Zuberi talks about a possible agreement with Libyan people and others and organizes conferences in Washington and Paris mostly on the subject.
“Have you thought about Fran Bassel and Mike’s budget? “Zuberi informed a nearby colleague in legal documents whose identity is blacked out.
Sources known by the project include Bassel Korkor, a lawyer, and Michael Mische, a business professor at the University of Southern California who taught Zuberi years ago.
Zuberi warns his partner not to speak off-color on women before the guy.
“Think about women, wouldn’t talk to Fran. There was a mistake. The VP Biden is closer. He’s like VP’s adoptive son,” wrote Zuberi.
Another moment, Zuberi’s partner seems to have really just heard regarding Biden’s son Beau’s death a few days ago. The colleague wrote: “My profound sympathies to Biden.”
A participant said from the Paris conference in the Four Seasons Hotel conducted in May 2015 that perhaps the Libyan Deputy Prime Minister was met by Zuberi, individuals as well as other people—or anyone called after that by the opposing parties at that time in Libya.
In another post, Zuberi talks about a calling person from the “Libyan Senator.” In the section of the courts’ letters, no further clarification is given.
What Zuberi felt, who was an offensive liner at South Carolina University football team prior to his tenure with Biden, was uncertain. It is not clear what Zuberi thought. Returning sanctions imposed in 2011 needs ratification by the United States. Department of Treasury and possibly the UN. At that point, the previous month, Clinton officially revealed her presidential proposition. Only until October, Biden kept the door open for racing.
In his messages, Zuberi expresses even anger over Libyans hacking over the proportion of intermediaries that he might do through the liberation of Libya’s properties. “You need unfrozen trillions,” he said. “Nothing,” she says.
The messages often relay Zuberi’s opinion that US decisions can be strongly affected by distributing funds to humanitarian and political causes.
When “Clinton Cash” entered bookstores in 2015, these were supposed to be a prosecution of the Clinton Foundation and a blow to the political aspirations of Hillary Clinton. Zuberi regarded the book as just a guide to doing business in D.C. by Republican organizational Peter Schweizer.
“I read the latest book Clinton Money on the road to Washington. You have to read that it addressed how Indian businessmen helped to create a nuclear deal through Clinton for the Indian civilian US,” Zuberi told his partner about the Libya mission. “The Americas function like this. How works Washington.”
“Let the American public manage me,” said Zuberi.
On Thursday, a spokesperson for the White House refused to comment on the latest wave of publications. However, Biden’s transition spokesman Andrew Bates admitted at the end of last year that Biden had visited Zuberi on a number of occasions while insisting that he did not get into Biden unusually.
“Emails from Mister Zuberi are particularly erroneous and enhance the experiences all mentioned in group environments — mostly donor roundtables,” said Bates in his original comment to the Associated Press. “Mr. Zuberi then vetted at the time and was veiled because clearly, he concealed the behaviors in question that neither the then Vice President nor the others to which he provided in some way.
A person who put up an offensive 2016 challenge in South Carolina to Rep. Mick Mulvaney failed to comment. Korkor also refused to comment on this.
Mische, who had been approached by the media, recognized the contributions of Zuberi.
“Imaad wanted to work out that the offer should be made and how it would make money? How are you actually going to do that? “Mische said. “Mische said. “We each carried a piece of know-how.”
Mische said, though, he never realized anything was going on. “It’s never been consummated to my knowledge. I’ve never been committed to pursuing it,” said Professor.
The Libyan Investment Agency officials begin to push the United States. News reports say, to end sanctions, ten years since they have been imposed. U.S. fines against the fund stay on the website of the Treasury Department. Libyan officials complain that the revenue and gains of 4.3 billion USD would have been lost if the SWF had access to frozen money and assets.
An interview order was denied Thursday by Tom O’Brien, Zuberi’s counsel.
Neither of the men identified in the Libya texts circulated widely is prosecuted.
Besides the project pertaining to Libya, the prosecutors have also confirmed that Zuberi has been engaging in unregistered lobbying operations on behalf of the Bahraini-owned businessmen in a conflict with Saudi Arabian authorities and for Dmitry Firtash – a Ukrainian oligarch connected to the notorious dealings between Trump and Ukraine.
Zuberi agreed to plead guilty to tax evasion and breach the campaign funding rules and not to file in connection with the Sri Lankan initiative.
It also acknowledged that last year, by endorsing a refund check to an international investor, it obstructed the trial of the Trump Inauguration by the prosecutors. Still, Zuberi’s attorneys say that it was double-crossed by the government in New York, despite deciding that it would not continue with a hamper investigation in Los Angeles.
A defense filing of Zuberi rejected a “technical reporting violation” of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
U.S. District Court of Los Angeles Judge Virginia Phillips directed Tuesday’s unsealing of allegations regarding the undue transparency of the case by news outlets.
The judge ordered certain names to be written or blacked out of the filings, but some names allowed them to be released. Some papers on the study, referred to as “Person R,” a person may be listed among those Phillips said.
Prosecutors claimed that certain individuals concerned shared fear for protection over the publication of their identity. The Confidential Information Security Act was also a source of some secrecy. The details at stake are vague, but Zuberi seems to have attempted to cite his collaboration with the United States intelligence services and negotiators as arguments for leniency. He said last year of his defense staff that he deserves praise for his “significant and vast support [for] his country over a ten-year time.”
Prosecutors are calling for Clinton appointee Phillips to jail Zuberi for even more than ten years. Officials of the testing indicated fewer after many years. The defense of Zuberi says ten years will be exceedingly excessive and that he has imposed a shorter sentence but did not make a clear recommendation.
In the 2016 presidential race, Republicans embraced a kind of bureaucratic, studious indifference when asked to focus on Trump’s actions as President, as he did on women or racial groups – and also on fellow lawmakers from the GOP, who had dared to cross over it.
“His presser I did not see.” “I did not.
“I don’t interpret the president’s Twitter account.”
“I’ve been really busy attending to just the businesses including its American customers to pay heed to remarks that you’ll be all obviously obsessed with covering.”
This is the kind of claims made for four years during Donald Trump’s presidency by the Republican legislators.
That all occurred in the Senate this week, in which a comparatively captive group of senators was required to wait, hear and gaze while the administrators of the Democratic House lay out an argument for Trump’s instigation of a deadly riot in the Capitol.
On Wednesday, the prosecutor included a very chilling video presentation which displayed how closely Speaker Nancy Pelosi was assassinated, as well as how the Mob was willing to suspend then Vice-President Pence. The video presentation was still unreleased. The pleas and scream of frenzy in the United States. Police officers of Capitol – attacked and defeated by the pro-Trump rebels – warn the Senators about the risk they were in the same day as well.
Under the courtroom laws, senator-turned-jurors are not permitted to debate, wander. Still, the pandemic loophole was exploited by Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican who was the motor of attempts to deprive President Joe Biden of congressional recognition of his victory. So they stood at the real January 6 crime scene and heard every aspect of the case from a team of House managers for the prosecution of Trump.
In general, senators wander the chamber between elections, speak and discuss with staff at the periphery of the ancient room. In reality, it is not unprecedented for senators to wait until the Senate clerk calls multiple times to vote ‘no’ or ‘yes.’
The recording, which was filmed in factual tones, making the story even more disturbing, made little doubt as to what happened outside and inside the Capitol on January 6. Most of this was undoubtedly new to the assembled red senators – such as the surveillance footage showing Rioters preparing to ram through an office full of frightened Pelosi employees or the police body camera displaying police attacks hours after the original violence on the Capitol.
‘Chairman Trump put an end to them, and the crowd struck the Capitol to track them down,’ said Delegate Stacey Plaskett, Democrat of the Virgin Islands and one of those who were blamed for the impeachment.
Part of her presentation was court records where one of the men who stormed the Capitol complained of “Crazy Nancy” attempting to get her – and, according to some other marauders, kill her. Nancy… Oh, Nancy. One guy yelled out rashly, in voices suggestive of a person in a horror movie. “Where are you, Nancy? We’re searching for you! Nancy Oh, Nancy!”
The nickname of the chief of staff for the House speaker, says Plaskett. “‘Mad Nancy.’
Rep. Eric Swalwell of California’s Democratic Party took up the story and recounted its own terror when Biden’s successful Electoral College votes were publicly put together by the crowd trying to reach the house.
He summoned his wife and informed Senators what he figured those in the Senate would be doing this day, as the California representative had advised her. He told Senators. “I love you as well as the babies. Please hug them for me,” said Swalwell.
He viewed a video from the crowd entering the Senate, so he immediately pushed the lawyers away for crucial minutes until the perpetrators reached the Senate building, moved through the private papers of the legislators and photographed the material of the attackers.
“You really were 58 steps away from wherever the mob was amassing,” Swalwell said disgustingly.
Like Plaskett, Swalwell gave early notice of graphical and upsetting video in general. For a while, he stood still after the militant crowd Ashley Babbitt, who’d been fatally shot by a cop while she was trying to reach the building. After Swalwell stopped, he looked down and then fled the zone where he presented the case after the footage of the Capitol Police officer crying in pain as he was crushed in the door.
The latest facts – along with a chronological account of Trump’s tweets, as the lethal drama unfolded – was a fantasy of the prosecutor: it is rare for someone who has a court prosecution to have a piece of real evidence about the incident – let alone new documentation about how near the jury itself has been the suspect.
Yet Trump is at best even far-fetched as convicted by the Senate. On Tuesday, only six GOP senators voted to affirm that a person who had been a president, while convicted, was prosecuted even before the Republican Senate initiated the trial process. To persuade Trump, it will take 17 GOP votes, assuming that all 50 Democrats will pass.
Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, posted before a recording of the stomach-turning afternoon had been shown. “The January 6 assault mostly on Capitol was much more serious than most realize,” Rubio continues that, obviously, the rioters and not Trump have referred to it. “We have a criminal justice system in place to deal with that.
Sen. Ted Cruz was much more straightforward in condemning the trial, the Republican of Texas who voted to contest the Election Colleges’ vote even after the attack.
Cruz tweeted, “The indictment of democrats is party theatre. “It will result in failure.”
The Democratic House managers have made a comprehensive argument with recent gruesome videos Wednesday to demonstrate that a vicious crowd has wisely incited former President Trump to attack the Capitol in order to bring an end to his election as President Joe Biden.
During the first of two days, the managers stepped up tweets, e-mails, pictures, audios, videos and discourses to prove that Trump was going to overturn the democratic process and, when he refused to allow his legal encounters, scheduled his deadly attack on January 6.
Jamie Raskin, the lead manager for the Democratic House, said Trump would not be an innocent bystander who was shocked by the tragedy and did absolutely nothing wrong, and his behaviour was proper, as his lawyers said on Tuesday.
“The evidence will demonstrate that he simply incited the insurrection. It will show Donald Trump abdicated his rank as commander and has become the chief inciter of a dangerous insurrection,” said Raskin.
“He told them to fight really hard,” Raskin said, “and they brought us to hell.”
The managers concentrated on Trump’s making plans and retaliation of the assault, saying That Trump decided to switch the schedule for a protest of his followers just a day or two after the 20 January inauguration to 6 January, the day when a joint session of Congress met to ensure the results of the election.
The managements are planning to explain the damage and effect of the attack by reopening their arguments on Thursday, while they are looking to influence enough Republicans in the Senate to vote to condemn Trump for insurrection.
Two days of claims for their refutational Friday will continue with Trump’s lawyers. Any excerpts from the hearings on Wednesday are here.
Capitol House managers were screening previously incredible footage of surveillance monitors and Capitol Capitol Police body cameras on all sides of the nave displaying interior images of the crowds crashing down into the building to catch the attention of both senators. Vice President Pence and his family were escorted into security in one recording. Another Senate chief Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and others immediately climbed up a ramp to take shelter and then suddenly turned around in the aftermath of riots.
In the first break-in through the glass, a quiet film of an inner view shows the Trump flag floating through the corridor. Another displays the vision of the officers stamped toward the Capitol from an officer’s body cameras. A panicked voice was included in the archives of a 911 call from the District of Columbia: “This is now essentially a riot.”
The public prosecutors accused Trump of spreading the “big lie” over and over again that the only way he might fail is through the theft of a pick, and then to a brutal fight. And they accused Trump of helping to schedule and change the 6 January rally weeks in advance, to allow a march to the Capitol. They said that Trump finished his speech just before the Congress prepared to certify it. “Just like the president spent months promoting his big lies at the polls, he also spent several months nurturing communities of people who repeatedly participated in actual dangerous aggression and did not walk around and say no as violence exploded as a response to his demands to battle the stolen election.”
Fight Versus Peacefully
Mark Meadows, the last head of Trump’s team, complained that on 6 January Democrat cherry-picked Trump’s talk at the rally. “There’s one line from President Trump’s January 6th speech which Democrats keep easily leaving out,” Meadows said on Twitter. “Listen to the words of unity and patriotism.” “The Republicans replied to those grievances by House Manager and Rep. Madeleine Dean “The only time President Trump used the term pacifists or any nonviolence advice was during her address nearly 11,000 words — yes we reviewed — it was the only time. “President Trump was using the word fight 20 times, which include telling the crowd they created to fight like heck and save our democracy.”
Raskin dismissed Trump lawyers’ Tuesday claims that the first amendment shielded Trump’s speech, invoking Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes’s term, that fire can’t be yelled at wrongly in a packed theatre. Raskin said: “Something more like a situation where even the town fire chief who has been paid to put out fires incites a crowd, to just not yell fire in a packed theatre, but to obviously set the theatre on fire, but who also when the fire sirens go off … does nothing except sit back, inspire the masses to begin its violence and see the fire to spread on Television with delight and glee.” However, whether a police chief or a president is sacrificed, he cannot invoke the right to free speech. By the First Amendment, a private individual can show support to the U.S. enemies. But the US has been advocated and defended by a president. “As Justice Scalia once said, ‘You didn’t carry the cops, and you can’t hunt the robbers.'”
Is This Really America?
The Black Capitol Police Officer later tore down the flagrant bigotry and did his job defending the brute assaults of Trump Loyalists. “Over several straight hours, because as marauders kicked and punched and mauled as well as spit upon as well hit police with bats and fire extinguishers, threatened the police and invaded our capital, he protected us as well as he served every moment of his pledge of office,” said Raskin about the unidentified officer referenced in a report by the BuzzFeed newsagent. Then he collapsed in the rotunda, overcome by grief and crying for fifteen minutes. Then he told me, “With my friend, another black man, I sat down, and tears just began to tread down on me, then he said, ‘There’s one black guy I’ve been calling. And I asked, “Is this the USA?”
