NEW: Rep. Eric Swalwell has served Rep. Mo Brooks with a lawsuit holding him “responsible for the injury and destruction” on Jan. 6 after Swalwell's team initially had trouble locating Brooks. forbes.com/sites/andrewso…
Brooks alleges criminal trespassing laws were violated in serving the complaint, but Swalwell's attorney calls the claim "utterly false," telling @Forbes the server "did not enter the house." forbes.com/sites/andrewso…
Attorneys for former President Donald Trump – who is also a defendant in the suit – have filed a motion to dismiss, claiming he has "absolute immunity" because he was president at the time. forbes.com/sites/andrewso…
Brooks deleted his initial tweet about being served and replaced it with one that crops more of his laptop, which appears to have his passwords taped to it (blocked out in green).
A version of that tweet is also still up:
UPDATE: Brooks spox tells @Forbes the Brooks' filed a police report, claiming there is "video proof" the server entered their home without consent and "refused to leave when Mrs. Brooks demanded."

Swalwell attorney says the server never entered the home. forbes.com/sites/andrewso…

CONFIRMED: Sorry Gerry Connolly, President Biden "doesn't plan to appoint his own commission" to investigate the Jan. 6 attack, the White House tells @Forbes forbes.com/sites/andrewso…
Biden "firmly agrees" with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Congress has a “unique role and ability” to probe the attack, @PressSec says – though she didn't say which of Pelosi's four options he favors.
Those options:

1. Another Senate vote
2. Empower a single standing committee
3. Continue probes in multiple committees
4. Impanel a select committee (think Benghazi) forbes.com/sites/andrewso…

One of my favorite #LifeHacks for browsing most newspaper websites.

1. Pay for a subscription
2. Read the article
Alternatively, you could:

1. Not pay for a subscription
2. Not read the article

The first set of steps is preferable for journalists to eat but at least you're not stealing their hard work in either case.
I, like anyone on a reporter's salary, am frustrated by paywalls. But I've never seen a person who actively criticizes outlets for having them while also having an alternative idea for how to fund journalism.

This is easily the craziest fake news/conspiracy site I've ever seen
In the Michael Baxter Cinematic Universe, the military is actively prosecuting top Democrats but the "deep state" still controls predator drones.

Schumer: "Republicans in both chambers are trying to rewrite history and claim that Jan. 6 was a peaceful protest that got a little out of hand. And now this."
Schumer: "I've heard all the excuses why Republicans are opposing this bill. 'It's too early,' 'goes on too long,' 'not needed.' Almost all these excuses are meritless and were invented in the past 2 weeks."
Schumer: "We all know what's going on here... Republicans chose to defend the big lie because they believe anything that upsets Donald Trump might hurt them politically."

The Senate just rejected this amendment from GOP Sen. Mike Braun to prohibit "certain types of human-animal chimeras"
"The term 'prohibited human-animal chimera' means... a human embryo into which a nonhuman cell or cells (or the component parts thereof) have been introduced to render the embryo's membership in the species Homo sapiens uncertain"
Pretty stiff penalty for creating a human-animal chimera:

"Whoever violates subsection (a) shall be... imprisoned not more than 10 years, or... be subject to a civil fine of the greater of $1,000,000; or the amount equal to twice the amount of the gross pecuniary gain, if any."
