Biden Town HallPresident Biden participated in a CNN town hall in Baltimore last night as critical negotiations about his domestic agenda continue, divisions simmer in Congress and questions linger about America’s reputation abroad. Biden said he was confident Democrats would be able to eke out a deal on his administration’s bipartisan infrastructure package and a budget reconciliation bill. He also indicated he would be open to reforming the filibuster — just not now, with so many critical domestic measures on the line. Biden also pledged to use the National Guard to address supply chain issues and to protect Taiwan in the event of a Chinese incursion, but those were later softened by White House aides.

CongressThe House voted to hold former President Trump ally Steve Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress after he defied a subpoena from the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. All 220 Democrats and nine Republicans voted in favor. The session got tense when GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene confronted two other House members, calling the vote a “joke.” Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland for the first time since he assumed leadership of the Justice Department. Republicans grilled him on the Bannon vote and plans to open a line of communication with the FBI to report parent threats against school officials. Democrats pressed Garland on civil rights matters, including police misconduct and violence in prisons.House votes to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress, most House Republicans side with BannonHouse votes to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress, most House Republicans side with BannonLead Ryan Nobles LIVE_00055915JUST WATCHEDHouse votes to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress, most House Republicans side with BannonReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

CoronavirusCovid-19 cases are getting so bad in Russia, Moscow’s mayor has ordered all unvaccinated citizens over age 60 to stay home for four months. The capital city is also going back under lockdown for 10 days to curb its worst-ever phase of the pandemic. Experts blame a slow vaccination drive, an overwhelmed health care system and widespread mistrust in government for the situation. Covid-19 cases are also rising in the UK, and the country’s doctors are accusing Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government of being “willfully negligent” in handling the situation. It’s a different story in Australia, where the second-largest state of Victoria has emerged from what is locally being called the “world’s longest lockdown.”Melbourne residents raise a glass to end of Covid lockdownMelbourne residents raise a glass to end of Covid lockdownMelbourne residents raise a glass to end of Covid lockdownJUST WATCHEDMelbourne residents raise a glass to end of Covid lockdownReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

ImmigrationTexas and Missouri are suing the Biden administration for its efforts to stop wall construction projects at the southern US border. The lawsuit argues that Biden didn’t have the authority to refuse to spend funds authorized under the previous administration for construction of the border wall. Biden ordered a pause on wall construction as one of its first actions in office and called for a review of the project and its funding. The administration has also canceled several border wall contracts. Texas and Missouri claim the administration’s actions allow more migrants to enter and remain in their states.Fauci: Expelling immigrants 'not the solution' to stopping Covid-19 spread Fauci: Expelling immigrants 'not the solution' to stopping Covid-19 spread SOTU Fauci on COVID Immigration Theory_00014709JUST WATCHEDFauci: Expelling immigrants ‘not the solution’ to stopping Covid-19 spread ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

The European Parliament voted overwhelmingly yesterday to condemn a ruling by Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal that says its constitution takes precedence over some EU laws. The ruling alarmed European lawmakers and raised fears of Poland’s possible exit from the bloc — a “Polexit.” However, Poland’s ruling party said no such plans are in place, and support for EU membership remains high among its citizens. Still, the EU could choose to discipline Warsaw by withholding funds for Covid-19 recovery or development projects. Poland’s premier called the possible punishment “blackmail.”On GPS: Poland's clash with the European UnionOn GPS: Poland's clash with the European Unionexp gps 1017 anne applebaum poland constitutional tribunal_00000220JUST WATCHEDOn GPS: Poland’s clash with the European UnionReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
