House of Representatives

The House scrapped plans for a Thursday session after security officials warned of a possible plot by an unnamed militant group to breach the Capitol. The decision to move up votes on legislation to Wednesday night came after officials warned of credible threats of violence circulated by right-wing extremists that March 4 is the “true Inauguration Day” when former president Donald Trump will be sworn in for a second term. The Senate plans to be in session Thursday.

President Biden on Wednesday criticized the governors of Texas and Mississippi for ending mask mandates and rolling back other coronavirus restrictions, saying “the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking.” His comments came during a bipartisan meeting at the White House on battling cancer that is a likely preview of what will be the centerpiece of Biden’s post-pandemic health agenda.

Meanwhile, the commanding general of the D.C. National Guard told senators how restrictions placed on him by the Pentagon in the run-up to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol in Washington prevented him from more quickly sending forces to quell the violence perpetrated by supporters of former president Donald Trump.
