NEW: Gaetz sighting--> Rep. Matt Gaetz will make his first public appearance since the revelations of an FBI investigation into his conduct.
The Florida Congressman will speak Friday at the "Women for America First" Save America Summit at Trump National in Doral, Florida.
This development.. and more news on the situation with Gaetz in our latest dispatch on the topic w/ @JeremyHerb & @DanaBashCNN…
Among the nuggets:
*Leader McCarthy had said he planned to meet with Gaetz to discuss the investigation- his office won't say if that meeting has occurred.
*We polled a dozen or so GOPers who took campaign $$ from Gaetz- only one said they planned to donate or return the money.
Rep. David Valadao's has donated the campaign money to a woman's shelter.
Other members who received Gaetz campaign donations like:
Either ignored our question or referred us to campaign committees that ignored us.
The big question is- will Gaetz return to Washington next week? He had an active proxy request through Rep. Michael Waltz, but a spokesperson for Waltz told us that Gaetz had not asked for Waltz to carry his proxy next week.

House Democratic leaders pushed back today on worries from progressives that the covid relief pkg is the only hope for passing a minimum wage increase in this Congress. ⁦@SpeakerPelosi⁩ told me “we will have other reconciliations.” Image
Pelosi said her conference will not stop their efforts to get the increase- but said if it is not in the final Covid relief pkg it should not prevent that pkg from being passed.
"Let's not be diverted into thinking into what is not in it, but lets respect it for what is in it.”
.@LeaderHoyer said the Senate's filibuster rules should be modified:

"I am one who believes the filibuster is an undemocratic
utilized in my early generation when I started in an interest in public affairs, to undermine the rights of citizens of color in America."

Just emerged from the Senate Chamber where I watched the reaction as the video presentation began. Every Senator was watching with rapt attention. At one point Senators Bennett & Warner stood up from their seats to get a better view of the screens.
Watched for another more than hour and it was unbelievable how close the Senators in the room paid attention to each part of the presentation. In many cases they seemed to be in stunned silence as the presentation played out.
At one point- When the video played of a rioter ending his remarks by yelling “Peace out” into the camera- Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) shook his head in disgust.

Dramatic moment on the House Floor- Majority Leader Steny Hoyer walked a giant picture of a @RepMTG tweet across the House floor. The tweet features an AR-15 and members of the so called “Squad”.
The tweet read:

“AR-15- the squad’s worst nightmare.”
Hoyer said: “They are not the squad- they are Ilhan, they are Alexandria, they are Rashida. They are our colleagues.”
More from Hoyer-
“No member ought to be permitted to engage in the kind of behavior that Rep. Greene has and face zero consequences.”

RIGHT NOW: On the floor of the House @RepMTG is defending herself as the Congress begins the process of removing her from committees.
Greene said that most of the Democratic members have not met her or taken the time to talk to her. Instead they have gotten their impression of her from Media Matters, CNN and other "mainstream media" outlets.
Greene says that when she learned that some of the conspiracy theories that she had leaned into and supported were not true- she “walked away” from them.

NEW: US Capitol Police banned building tours and access to Capitol on day of riot after Democrats raised security concerns. w/ @AnnieGrayerCNN & @DanaBashCNN…
The memo reiterated guidance from the spring when Cap Police banned tours, which some members of Congress were ignoring. It also locked down access to the Capitol itself to only people with offices there.
Republicans argue Democrats (who've accused GOP Members of conducting reconnaissance missions ahead of the riots) are overstating the guidance. They point out Dems have offered no specific evidence that GOP members were helping the rioters.
