Trump coup attempt spread COVID-19


This 12 January 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, of Seattle, says she has tested positive for COVID-19 after being locked down in a crowded room with other lawmakers during the siege on the U.S. Capitol last week.

JAYAPAL TESTS POSITIVE AFTER RIOT LOCKDOWN Less than a week after a Trump-fueled mob attacked the Capitol, forcing lawmakers to hide in a secured room, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (Democrat-Wash.) has tested positive for COVID-19. She tweeted: “I just received a positive COVID-19 test result after being locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one.” [HuffPost]

NEW BOOK: GENERAL FEARED TRUMP WOULD USE MILITARY TO STAY IN POWER Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was deeply worried that then-President Donald Trump would refuse to leave the White House and warned colleagues he feared Trump would try to use the military to stay in office, according to excerpts from a new book. Milley, the nation’s top military officer, also compared Trump’s actions to the rise of Adolf Hitler. [HuffPost]

Don’t laugh at Marjorie Taylor Greene — her Jewish constituents must live with her hate: here.

TRUMP MOB’S MEN: A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN A HuffPost investigation found that multiple men arrested for the U.S. Capitol insurrection have restraining orders against them over domestic violence accusations. Others have faced charges and served prison time for sexual assault. Experts have linked extremism to violent misogyny in recent years, especially in the wake of mass shootings in which the perpetrators had a history of violence against women.

DEFENSE CONTRACTORS RESUME DONATIONS TO REPUBLICANS WHO REJECTED DEMOCRACY The nation’s biggest federal defense contractors have quietly resumed giving money to Republicans who helped fuel the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, despite making a public show of halting their political contributions after the attack. Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Boeing and Northrop Grumman donated to GOP lawmakers who voted to reject Biden’s electoral win based on the same lie about voter fraud that led to the attack. [HuffPost]
