Census Bureau Director to Resign Amid Allegations of Pressure to Produce Immigrant Count | U.S. News

00:05-01:35 NPR reports that the U.S. Census Bureau has halted all work on Trump's directive to produce a state-by-state count of unauthorized immigrants that would have been used to alter a key set of census numbers. Senior officials at the bureau instructed the internal team assigned to carry out Trump's presidential memo to stand down and cease their work immediately on Tuesday night.  01:36-07:00 The pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week aimed to “capture and assassinate elected officials,” federal prosecutors said in court documents. The remarks came in a motion prosecutors filed late Thursday in the case against Jacob Chansley, the Arizona man who took part in the insurrection sporting face paint, no shirt and a furry hat with horns.  07:01-07:53 Trump will leave Washington next Wednesday morning, just before Biden’s inauguration, to begin his post-presidential life in Florida. He will be sent off with a departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, according to a person familiar with the planning who spoke on condition of anonymity because Trump's plans have not been formally announced. A red carpet, color guard, military band and 21-gun salute are all being discussed. 07:54-08:43 President-elect Joe Biden has unveiled a $1.9 trillion proposal to boost the US economy and provide aid to those struggling in the pandemic. Dubbed the American Rescue Plan, it includes beefed-up stimulus checks, enhanced unemployment aid, an eviction moratorium and more assistance for small businesses, states and schools.  08:44-11:29 In September 2017, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner moved into Washington’s elite Kalorama neighborhood (home over the years to Cabinet secretaries and former presidents). The Washington Post reports that since then, the government has spent $3,000 a month — more than $100,000 to date — to rent a basement studio, with a bathroom, from their neighbor, for the secret service agents assigned to them to use. A White House spokesperson denied that Trump and Kushner restricted agents from their 5,000-square-foot, six bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home. 11:30-11:49 According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, there are now over 93 million novel coronavirus cases worldwide. Over 2 million people have died. Over 51 million people have recovered globally. In the United States, over 23 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The current death toll in the United States is 390,000, closing in fast on the number of Americans killed in the second world war, which sits at 405,000. 11:50-13:49 Biden outlined the pillars of his administration's COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan today in Delaware. His plan includes creating more vaccination sites, training more vaccine administrators, and launching an extensive public information campaign.   13:50-15:11 A creative prankster in Peoria, Illinois hired an artist to paint a Soviet-style mural of Cookie Monster on the side of a building he claimed to own. The only problem is...he doesn’t actually own the building! Nate Comte, the real owner of the commercial building, was none too pleased to show up to find a giant Cookie Monster mural on the side of the place, stretching about 30 feet long and 16 feet high. 15:12-16:57 Rapper Missy Elliott's helping dreams come true for a bride-to-be on a tight budget by covering the cost of the wedding dress she'd been eyeing. Ireanna Bradshaw's getting married in March, but she and her fiance, Roderick Purdie, are also trying to move into their own place while planning the wedding, and the costs were piling up.  16:58-20:53 A man identified by Vice News only as “Stephen,” a struggling musician living in Baltimore, came up with a solution to feeling insecure about attending his high school reunion: He hired an attractive look alike to go in his place!  20:54-21:57 In Georgia, police jailed a woman accused of pretending to be an FBI agent to score a free fast-food meal at a local Chick-Fil-A. Kimberly Ragsdale of Dallas allegedly threatened to arrest restaurant workers if they didn’t serve her a complimentary bite. . Attorney Advertisement.
