"Will we underestimate again? I have to think that the answer to that is no," says Congressman Adam Schiff on reports of a warning email ahead of Jan. 6. "Every precaution is going to be made and no one wants to... have another event like we had on January 6, period."

"It does seem as though things have come full circle in a 20-year arc," says fmr. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson on the eve of the 9/11 anniversary. "But circumstances are different... 20 years ago there was no Department of Homeland Security. Bin Laden was alive."

President @JoeBiden announces major Covid-19 vaccine mandates. That’s the front page banner headline in the @nytimes and @washingtonpost this morning.
This Update: There are 101,925 people hospitalized with Covid-19 in the U.S. right now. The U.S. is now averaging 1,499 new Covid-19 deaths each day, according to The Johns Hopkins University. Almost all of them are not vaccinated. Bottom line: Get A Shot!
Dr. Fauci says the U.S. is still in Covid-19 "pandemic mode because we have 160,000 new infections a day...You've got to get well below 10,000 before you start feeling comfortable." At the end of June, the U.S. was at around 11,000 cases a day but then the Delta variant exploded.
Welcome @kasie to @CNN - We are so excited that you are now part of our team. And thanks for the nice shoutout! twitter.com/kasie/status/1…
