The Scary Power Behind the Companies That Finally Shut Trump Up | U.S. News

00:06-07:31 Brad, Vanessa and Yonathan continue their conversation about First Amendment rights and Twitter’s ban of right-wing extremists, columnist Michelle Golberg published an op-ed in The New York Times in which she agreed with how technology giants have used their power in this case, but also finds it disturbing how awesome their power is. Goldberg writes: “Trump deserved to be deplatformed. But it’s dangerous to have a handful of callow young tech titans in charge of who has a megaphone and who does not.” 07:32-11:40 House Democrats plan to vote on a resolution urging VP Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power, then vote tomorrow on an article of impeachment charging Trump with "incitement of insurrection." House Republican leaders have decided not to formally lobby members of the party against voting to impeach Trump, making a break with him as they scrambled to gauge support within their ranks. 11:41-12:30 The FBI has warned that "armed protests" are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol leading up to Biden's inauguration next Wednesday. The National Guard plans to have up to 15,000 of its personnel ready for the inauguration. DC's Mayor Bowser asked Trump to declare an emergency in the District, and yesterday, he did it. He's also ordered federal assistance to help reinforce the District's response efforts ahead of the inauguration. 12;31-14:36 Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, announced his resignation. In a message to DHS employees obtained by CBS News, Wolf said he was "saddened" to resign and suggested he was effectively forced to do so. Wolf's resignation comes three days after a federal judge in California ruled that his appointment as acting secretary in November 2019 was likely unlawful, blocking a set of sweeping asylum restrictions that were slated to take effect Monday. Tuesday Tea Time With Brad 14:37-20:44 Vice President-elect Kamala Harris has landed on the cover of the February issue of Vogue magazine, but her team says there's a problem: the shot isn't what both sides had agreed upon. Instead of the powder blue power suit Harris wore for her cover shoot, the first Jamaican-Indian American woman elected vice president, is instead seen in more casual attire and wearing Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers, which she sometimes wore on the campaign trail. 20:45-25:36 Former California governor and film and TV star Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out Sunday, posting a video decrying the Capitol building takeover and Trump. The video reached back to provide a history lesson about the 1938 Kristallnacht attacks in Austria and ended with Schwarzenegger holding Conan the Barbarian’s sword. Schwarzenegger reflected on his own childhood in post World War II Austria, saying: “I heard it with my own ears and saw it with my own eyes." 25:37-26:32 Hollywood reacted to Twitter announcing that it was permanently banning Trump from the platform, which has long been his favorite way to communicate. Longtime Twitter savage Chrissy Teigen, wrote, simply, "AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAAHHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA." Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus Tweeted CEO Jack Dorsey: "What the f*** took you so long @jack?" .
