The riots on Capitol Hill last Wednesday has caused people on the left to think President Donald Trump does not have the capabilities to finish his term. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to her Democrat colleagues that if Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet do not activate the 25th Amendment, then the House will proceed with impeachment articles.

The fight to represent New York's 22nd Congressional District picked back up on Monday in court between Democratic incumbent Rep. Anthony Brindisi and Republican challenger Claudia Tenney. Counties counted over the Christmas and New Year's holidays, which gave Tenney a 29 vote lead. But that could change since 2,500 ballots still need their day in court.

The new Congress convened Sunday at noon, and the House held its Speakership vote. With only a razor-thin majority, Democrats could not afford to indulge 15 members voting against Nancy Pelosi as happened two years ago, nor did AOC or the rest of the 'Squad' defect despite pressure from the left not to "sell out."

Congress will vote Monday night on a COVID-19 relief bill worth $900 billion along with a $1.4 trillion spending bill to cover the remainder of the 2021 Fiscal Year. The Democrats wanted a $2.2 trillion COVID-19 relief bill before the election, but Republicans offered $900 billion. The left only agreed to that amount after their guy won the presidential election.
