More than 400,000 people in the US have died from Covid-19, new data shows. Nearly a quarter of them have died in the past month. @brikeilarcnn remembers a few of those who have tragically lost their lives to the virus.


I guess I appreciate him just saying it out loud. That America's multiculturalism is a weakness. That if you're not white with European ancestry, you're not American. It's stunning to hear him say it, but at least he's not hiding it.


Josh Hawley is blocking quick consideration of Joe Biden's Homeland Security nominee, Alejandro Mayorkas.


You didn't think I'd send him off without my own departure ceremony, did you?


BREAKING: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the pro-Trump mob that attacked Capitol was "fed lies" and "provoked by the president." McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 riot.


BREAKING: @CIA Director Gina Haspel has retired.


Putin imprisoned @navalny, but didn't silence him. @fbkinfo just posted its biggest ever investigation into Putin's palace. It's the biggest "home" in Russia, with wine cave, theater, dance pole, discoteque, hockey rink—to the tune of $1.35 billion. Watch


Trump hasn't left the White House or been seen in public for a week.


Who knows how @navalny's team got the detailed plans including tunnels.


So @navalny's revenge for recent events is to publish a new, more-detailed exposé of "Putin's Palace". (Google's Translate feature does quite a good job for non-Russian speakers)


.@laurenboebert Here we have Lauren the Representative of Whitetrashistan quoting Dr. King 13 days after posing on the Capitol steps surrounded by thugs flashing white power signs. Resign. You can make more money on reality TV. I’m thinking a series called Skankville could work.


Why Russia’s Overseas Spies Keep Getting Caught


Russians already joking that Putin is wearing Navalny's stolen blue novichok underwear.


An FBI report states QAnon extremists have discussed disguising themselves as National Guard troops to attack Biden inauguration, the Washington Post reports


#Opinion by Yeung Wing-yu 楊穎宇|"Meting out a severe punishment to a teacher because of 'biased' teaching materials is a new thing in the #education sector. This is without precedent in the history of #HongKong."


We're installing almost 200,000 state and territory flags that will cover the entire National Mall for #InaugurationDay! Become a symbolic sponsor of these flags and donate to our partner charities.


Putin is one desperate sad man. After arresting @navalny, someone far more popular and heroic, Putin felt compelled to post a shirtless picture of himself.


The person blocking the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.


This is complete crap. Simon & Schuster you want to explain this? @simonschuster




Jailed opposition leader Alexey Navalny urges Western governments to sanction key allies of President Vladimir Putin


Hong Kong security law: Arrested teen pro-independence activist first to be released unconditionally


Parents and brother of @joshuawongcf have left Hong Kong for Australia


BREAKING: @navalny’s colleague @vashurkov shared the list of eight Russian officials and oligarchs who Alexei thought should be sanctioned under the Magnitsky Act. Alexei prepared this list days before being arrested.


Two days before he’s sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden volunteered with his family at a Philadelphia food bank, packing boxes as part of National Day of Service


Very excited for next week when he acknowledges the Russia investigations were properly predicated


This is fun: My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell told Axios, "I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election."


Here’s Sean Hannity claiming Democrats want to put Trump supporters in “reeducation camps”


Rep. James Clyburn on CNN: "When [Biden] lays out his agenda and invites participation from the other side, if they're going to be recalcitrant, if they're going to throw up roadblocks, go on without them. Use your executive authority if they refuse to cooperate.'"


Don’t trust the list. Trump doesn’t have to reveal the names of anyone he pardons. Trump can issue SECRET PARDONS. Trump can pardon himself & his family and keep that secret until they are charged with federal crimes.


This morning, brave and restless Belarusians gathered to form a solidarity chain on the main avenue in Minsk. "Good morning, Belarusians! Solidarity starts with small things".


There's a new pillow in town


From an interview earlier this evening, Mike Lindell tells Right Side Broadcasting that he was just told that @BedBathBeyond has dropped MyPillow. He also complains about @slpng_giants .


"I cannot imagine a legitimate, worthwhile circumstance under which any of Donald Trump's successors will need to consult him on any classified matter." - former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson


What's working in Covid treatments and what isn't? @SamFazeli has the latest on antibodies, convalescent plasma and more


About 200,000 flags were placed where people would usually stand for the inauguration. This was BRILLIANT!


Late maneuvers by Trump add anxious air to typically tranquil transition
