Welcome to Liberty Nation’s Daily Snapshot. All the top news of the day, the latest polls, and more.
- FBI Director Christopher Wray, speaking to the Senate Judiciary Committee, said that Domestic Terrorism “has been metastasizing around the country for a long time now, and it’s not going away anytime soon.”
- The Biden administration has suffered its first nomination defeat, as the president’s pick for director of the Office of Management and Budget, Neera Tanden, withdrew her name from consideration.
- Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says the $1.9 trillion COVID bill will move forward on Wednesday and that he is confident “we’ll have the votes.” Mitch McConnell said that he hopes all Republicans would oppose it.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for the Fourth Estate members to run cover for President Joe Biden. More than 40 days into his presidency, he has yet to hold a solo press conference, and according to Jen Psaki, does not yet have plans to make one. Will this lack of transparency and access be the hallmark of the Biden administration?
President Biden has optimistically shortened his goal of having enough vaccines for every citizen by two months. He now claims that there will be shots for all by the end of May – two months earlier than he first suggested. However, officials say they are worried about the speed with which states are re-opening. One wonders why that should matter if the vaccines are as effective as the public has been told.
A number of Republicans have sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticizing her choice of lead for the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot review. General Russel Honore, who has been picked for the post, has made somewhat inflammatory statements regarding Capitol security in the past, including suggestions that pro-Trump police invited the rioters to enter the building and disparaged others who insisted he himself follow security protocol. When you want a set outcome from an independent review, the simplest method is to appoint someone you know will come to the conclusion you desire, regardless of the facts.
A thought for the day from history’s most interesting thinkers.
