NEW: The newly released bipartisan report on the 1/6 insurrection from the Senate is out and it found sweeping failures, multiple errors made by govt officials & law enforcement in the run up to the siege. Lack of prep and training for cops underlined throughout.
US Cap Police respond to the report:
"Neither the USCP, nor the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, Metropolitan Police or our other law enforcement partners knew thousands of rioters were planning to attack the U.S. Capitol. The known intelligence simply didn’t support that conclusion."
USCP maintains it didn't have credible intel indicating people would attack the U.S. Capitol on 1/6.
In May USCP's inspector general said cops had inadequate intelligence, outdated ops too.
But, again, this was what was circulating in the run-up:…
"Neither the FBI nor DHS deemed online posts calling for violence at the Capitol as credible."
Related context while we are here:…
STORY: Omissions in intelligence, lackluster security planning & botched leadership failed to prevent the deadly attack on the Capitol, two Senate committees found in what could very well be lawmakers’ last bipartisan effort to probe the events of Jan. 6.…
Over two dozen recommendations are found in Tuesday’s report, including a call for a new chief of Capitol Police. Senators also recommend formal procedures be established to communicate external intelligence reports to the appropriate commanders.…
Riot gear — a lot of which shattered on impact during the siege — must also be kept in good shape and inventoried. It was also recommended that munitions finally be subject to a check-in, check-out log.…
Intelligence priority reports are also suggested quarterly and the director of the Capitol Police’s intelligence division should develop an “action plan” within 45 days for the Senate on intelligence collection, processing and dissemination methods.…

Coming up: President Biden goes on his first international trip since taking office. He's headed to the U.K. on Wednesday. First for a meeting with UK PM Boris Johnson & then onward to the G7 Summit. A meeting w/ Queen Elizabeth II is on deck too. More later for @CourthouseNews.
The goal for Biden during the G7 Summit this week and ahead of the NATO Summit next week is to restore diplomatic trust & friendships with U.S. allies after 4 yrs of isolationist policy/rhetoric from Trump.
But it's not all glad-handing.
The world is still experiencing a pandemic. The U.S. has pulled its forces out of Afghanistan. There are concerns over China and how the U.S. can compete against the world power. Then there's Russia. Biden's 1st meeting with Putin is next week and the world will be watching.

After a year of pandemic, losing my mom to a vicious disease that ate her alive in front of me for 2 years and other soul crushing fare, I'm finally putting on my nicest duds, getting very beautiful & going out so I can sip some of the finest whisky at @JackRoseinDC tonight.
I'm really looking forward to it and with her birthday right around the corner, I'll be having some Pappy for her, for sure. She didn't drink, but she always knew how to have a good time and to the nines.
Well. Image

President Biden will deliver remarks on the latest job report today around 10:15 AM ET. More later for @CourthouseNews.
We're getting the May jobs report back today. Estimates peg it at some 670K jobs added last month. Recall in April, that figure was closer to 266K, causing much consternation among those who expected it to do far better. Economists predicting the unemployment rate will dip, too.
Biden will deliver his remarks on the jobs report later his morning from Delaware before returning to Washington.

The 12-page legislation is available here:…
Here's some of what it would do: vest a "just" energy transition for public/co-op providers so they can change out existing infrastructure w/renewable energy; establish federal guidelines to keep utilities accountable, impose a universal ban on util. disconnections for nonpayment

In my lifetime, I just want a president who shreds.
I am learning how to longboard and it is hard and I am scared of breaking everything.
