Fox News host says Trump must ‘learn to lose’

The House select committee investigating the 6 January insurrection has requested “voluntary cooperation” from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy to provide information about his conversations with former president Donald Trump during the worst attack on the Capitol since 1814.

However, McCarthy has refused to cooperate with the committee, citing the “illegitimate” investigation by the panel, in a statement hours after the request.

Liz Cheney, one of the panel’s only two Republicans, said her party’s House leader is attempting to “cover up” what happened on 6 January 2021 and that the committee would evaluate other options for obtaining his testimony. “I wish that he were a brave and honorable man,” she told CNN.

This came after Trump grabbed headlines for hanging up on an NPR journalist who challenged him with questions about the Capitol insurrection and his fixation on non-existent election fraud in 2020. He also drew attention with an interview in which he poured scorn on Republicans who refuse to say whether or not they have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Woman with loaded shotgun saying she ‘wanted to talk’ about January 6 arrested outside US Capitol Police HQ

Capitol Police arrested a woman they say turned up to their headquarters with multiple firearms saying she “”wanted to talk about information she had about” the January 6 attack.

Police said in a statement the Michigan woman illegally parked in front of their building on Wednesday when an agent saw a gun case in the vehicle.

Police allegedly discovered a cache of weapons and ammunition, including an unloaded .22-caliber rifle and .50-caliber muzzle loader, a loaded shotgun, and a pellet gun.

The woman, identified as Kery Lynn McAttee, was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of unregistered ammunition and unlawful transportation of a semi-automatic rifle, police said.

“At this time, there is no evidence the 58-year-old suspect was coming here to do anything, except speak with our officers,” the Capitol Police said.
