We have really easy here's what you clean your pictures home Jane Jersey tells us why it's not too late. Good evening everyone I'm Linda Davis thanks so much for streaming with us in his farewell address when deciding to only serve two terms as president George Washington warned of the dangers of extreme partisanship saying that animosity leads to quote riot and insurrection. The entire speech from 1796. Is read by a lawmaker from a different party every year on the senate floor a tradition that began during the darkest days of the civil war tonight under Washington's watchful gaze. National Guard members are accorded in the US capital for the first time since the civil war. There is renewed concern about the potential for dark days ahead a sobering new memo from the FBI tonight warns it right wing extremists and domestic terrorists are quote likely to use violence in the coming days. And on Capitol Hill some of the Republicans who voted for impeachment are now concerned for their safety one saying our expectation. Is that someone may try to kill us. Our Chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas. To keep Americans safe. Tonight a new intelligence assessment raising the Specter of continued insurrection next week. The new FBI bulletin urges authorities in DC and all fifty state capitals to prepare for fight. Or face the prospect of violent offenders. Could quote overwhelm local state and federal law enforcement six days until the inauguration and with an expected 21000. National Guard available there are now more troops in Washington DC. Then US military in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. Razor wire. Block streets a city fortifying itself officials shutting down the entire capitol complex and building the possibility of keeping everyone. Off the National Mall the National Mall normal will be filled with hundreds of thousands of people who come to watch the inauguration. Shutting that down will be unprecedented but assures you just how concerned officials are. All of this because the FBI believes that last week's assault be emboldened right wing radicals to return. And pursue more violence anybody who plots are intense violence in the coming week. Should count on that sources telling ABC news. Different groups from around the country appear to be coordinated overnight FBI director ray. Reaping chiefs in major cities telling them to be on the lookout for potential loan with actors that could blend in with more peaceful protesters. When you have people come down to peacefully protest. And get a large crowd and some bad actors infiltrate that. That can turner people crowd. Into what we've seen in the past at the same time they're pursuing writers by the dozen. Suspects like Kevin C free authorities say he's seen here carrying the confederate flag. Arrested in Delaware this morning along with his son Robert Sanford allegedly the man seen here hitting several police in the head with a fire extinguisher. He's a retired firefighter from Pennsylvania. Turned in by a longtime friend. Who recognized him in the FBI photos Christine Froyo a former occupational therapist for Cleveland schools allegedly seen here in the senate chamber and Ginny cut. And assist deleted FaceBook video posted after the riot. Authorities say she admitted to breaking into the capital. We did break down. The and Nancy Clancy's office door. And tonight more than thirty members of congress are calling for an investigation calling it suspicious that an extremely high number of outside groups in the complex on January 5. The day before the riots which is unusual given that public tours of the capitol. Ended in March 20 each morning. Due to the corona virus pandemic in claiming that some of the visitors appear to be associated with the rally that preceded the right it. Certainly great interest in the outcome of that investigation Pierre Thomas joins us now I'm cares so much happening on the ground in Washington to make sure that the city is kept secure but we'll plans for the inauguration have to be scaled back because of the security threats. Whether they're really trying to hold the inauguration outside as is tradition. The residents' rights situation is so intense right now so intense that Biden does not plan to take its beloved Amtrak train to the inauguration. And law enforcement seems to be working quickly to identify and arrest those responsible for the attack just give us a sense of the scope of the operation that's now under way across the country. Extraordinary the FBI has a dignified 200 suspects. Tied to that mob assault that's an incredible number of an early lead that number could rise to. Jeered Thomas thanks so much. All of this comes as president Chung has not taken direct responsibility for his role in inciting the rioters and stormed a capital last week. And tonight members of his own staff have begun the process of moving out of the White House has our Jonathan Karl reports the president's fate after he leaves office. Now rests in the hands of the senate. Mr. very good tonight vice president Mike Pence made a surprise visit to Capitol Hill thanking the National Guard troops who will be protecting the inauguration. Have a safe. Inauguration. And I just wanted to stop today like. Spotted at 16100 Pennsylvania Avenue moving trucks. Donald Trump's aids seen packing up and moving on one person carrying a boss to out of the west wing. As house Republicans who broke ranks and voted to impeach the president are facing the fury of trump loyalists. Congressman Peter Maier of Michigan the only freshman Republican who voted to impeach. So some of his colleagues fear for their lives and are traveling with armed escorts. Do you bus or Earl turner he's. Or body armor. We have to get out why burger. You know our expectations. May try to adults. Liz Cheney the most prominent Republican yes vote on impeachment is fighting for her political life she said of trump. There's never been a greater part trail by a president of the United States. Today congressman Jim Jordan and other die hard trumps supporters circulated a petition calling for her to be booted out of her leadership position. Saying that she quote. Brought the conference into disrepute and produced discord. But a spokesperson for Kevin McCarthy said the Republican House leader opposes the move to remove Cheney. McCarthy was been one of trumps most loyal supporters opposed impeachment but also placed blame on trumped for the cap. All riot these facts require immediate action the president truck. Except to shared responsibility. Quell the brewing unrest. And ensure president elect Biden is able to successfully. Begin his term. Late last night a full week after the riot trump released a video telling his supporters to be calm in nonviolent. Mob violence goes against everything I believe had. And everything our movement stands for this after he riled them up just before the riot began. We fight like hell and if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore. He still hasn't taken any responsibility whatsoever for inciting the violence insisting his words were totally appropriate. Now it's up to the senate to judge whether that's true the trial will likely begin just after the inauguration. It will take seventeen Republicans and all of the Democrats to convict senator Lisa Murkowski says the president deserved to be impeached I. Believed that this residents. Has to me. He should bags. Still Murkowski has not said whether she'll vote to convict but she did declare that trumps unlawful actions cannot go without consequence. It's still unclear just what those consequences will be. Jonathan Karl joins us now from Washington John as you mentioned at least seventeen Republican senators must vote to impeach for a conviction imagine many Republican senators on the fence will be closely watching what Mitch McConnell decides to do. Yeah it's really anybody's guess how McConnell will vote on conviction all he is said. To his colleagues is that he is not made up his mind on this. I I think that if McConnell ultimately decides to vote for conviction there is a very good chance that there would be 67 votes. Seventeen of the Republicans. Actually convict without McConnell it's hard to see out happens when McConnell is sending an unmistakable message your Lindsay. To Republicans and more importantly perhaps to the president. That he is not going to bail Donald Trump out this time. He may or may not vote to convict but he is certainly not going to defend him. And John edges of the president's team is beginning to leave the White House we're learning tonight that the federal government is faring no expense to clean and disinfect the building before president elect Biden moves and. He had their get a do a deep clean and it sides and expensive deep clean we have learned. Did the that the government is contract did. Some 200000. Dollars. All worth of extra cleaning. To happen around the inauguration this includes a got some numbers here for your you can imagine. 44000. Dollars on inaugural carpet cleaning. And 29000. Dollars for inaugural curtains cleaning. And a lot else it will be a very a vigorous clean of 16100 Pennsylvania Avenue before Biden moves and. 200000. Dollars cleaning Bill Maher and honest Karl thanks so much thank you. Joining us now is a man who will take the VP elect Connolly harris' senate seat and become the first Latino from the state of California to serve in the US senate California secretary of state Alex Padilla thank you so much for your time tonight we appreciate it. Not thank you for having me have been given do we kill up to prepare for but. We're excited to get to work. A busy week no doubt you'll be officially sworn into the senate next week another busy week in immediately phase two consequential votes should the senate balance and unheard of impeachment trial of a former president along with that urgent need for comic relief and addressing all aspects of how the pandemic is being handled. What you have the intensity. The work couldn't it away it did not bother me but. I think in the conversation with every one of my colleagues to be we know we have to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. It's not a matter either there or code response is absolutely important. Holding president trump accountable to be extremely important. And did doing our part. By heritage administration titles and vision off the hook extremely important so we're prepared to do with it. Any sense at all. Some some of your soon to be colleagues as far as what the senate might dip. And everything will run its proper course. But I can tell you after the but the couple weeks to prevent punitive the last hole but that we've been to the fallout for the years that we've been through stadium Ree oriented and hopefully we balance the leadership. Both in the White House put any content to sit on the senate side it give us a tremendous opportunity to. Do and act aggressively and we don't have been able to in recent years. Now many fear the last week's domestic terror attack may only embolden attackers of Republican in the house who voted for impeachment said today in our expectation is someone may trying to kill us in do you have concerns about your personal safety coming into such a high profile role. Look at this ended that threat could have come home life are are not lost on me but so we do have. State and competency and being committed by imitation they'll leadership of the perfect little departments and agencies. To keep. The members of congress say but the capital community and the general. Washington DC area something the delicate balance between those who 12. Regular police and protesters allowed. And the First Amendment but the violence and the truth insurrection but we saw last week is clearly beyond just that. Frankly went public images one day it's only involved in my resolve. Want to get to work I think things get to work quickly. Now the home state papers of both senators Josh tally as well as Ted crews have called for them both to resign for their role in attempting to overturn it from its results of the election as they don't step down do you think of their actions warrant any kind of response. Most definitely you know that the park responsibility where life beginning with Donald Trump. And you know if if the trickle of information which is already there and public. Lead competitors Polly and senators cruised there have to be confident it has to be accountability. Nobody is above the law. What they chooses to remain in office contrary to their complete papers. What they call core it is got a the other ways for the institution. To hold them accountable. As you well know California's home to two million undocumented workers many of whom have kept right on working on the farms in an essential jobs despite cold and fears that you've called for a pathway for citizenship in the next Kobe relief bill are you concerned at all that that might complicate the process of getting relief to Americans who desperately need it. No word at all you know my job is to raise support public good for California consistent with. Not just my values but the values that make our nation. You know we call these workers essential core he reasoned that if there. In in an important enough role to be deemed essential workers they would have to treat them mess and yes that includes public protection. That includes basic worker and labor protection. The proposed who have been here for years and years and years pain act invading family. Contributing to the success of our nation and our economy. They deserve. Be they deserve that stability security and it we did didn't you. And lastly California is 40% Latino and as I mentioned at the beginning you'll be the first Latino from your state to serve in the senate here's a moment where you found out from governor Newsom that he was offering you the pumps let's take a look. Can you imagine. Would they mom would be thinking now as I ask you if you wanna be the next US senator the United States. Great City Council. This year it. This is the official. Says they asked rather. I'm honored. I don't normally. On a personal level as the son of immigrants kind of give us a sense of what you're thinking in that moment. As well as what you're thinking as you saw mob of domestic terrorists attacking capital last weekend and what gives you hope tonight. Look in that video what you see is what you get sued the call was hope import. From the governor and you need what that anticipation couldn't help but it merely. But and emotions came to my parents. And recognizing their journey either struggled and sacrificed in pursuit of the American dream. Every three children were all public servants. Different capacities that they can one generation. Might have been gone for both immigrants but other working at the cook a marketing houses for a living. To meet serving in the United States senate I mean the American dream is still alive. And that was fueled by publishers making sure that the American dream is. Remain alive for future generations but the visual we saw when they. That's horrific as they were a decree with the equally terrific is that the bidding come as a surprise the American dream has been under attack. Threw out the crime the administration and beyond. History reminder that we have a lot of work to do nothing to restore you know decency and civility and civic discourse. To make American dream more available and accessible. To so many were found across the country that absolute loser. Senator deadly hit Alex Padilla we thank you so much for your time appreciate you coming on the show. But it shouldn't do to prevent him. To have you back any time and we turn now to president elect Joseph Biden who tonight outlined his plan to tackle pandemic and economic recovery is nearly two trillion dollar Americana rescue plan which includes 14100 dollar stimulus checks and expanded unemployment benefits as well as efforts to speed up the ongoing vaccination and testing efforts across the country the six listen to some of his remarks. Some eighteen million Americans are still reliant on unemployment insurance. Some 400000. Small businesses have permanently close their doors. It's not hard to see. There were that I loved ones in several generations economic crisis. With the once in several generations. Public health crisis. The crisis of deep human suffering. Is in plain sight. There's no time to waste. We have to act and we have to act now. We'll have to move heaven and earth. To get more people vaccinated to create more places for them to get vaccinated to mobilize more medical team to get shots in people's arms. Through increased vaccine supply. We get it out the door as fast as possible. A rescue plan also includes immediate relief to Americans hardest hit and most in need. We'll finish the job of getting a total of 2000 dollars. In cash relief to people who need the most. The 600 dollars already appropriated is simply not enough. The very first. Since nearly 400000. Lost American souls and county. To the beginnings of view just looking for fighting chance in this economy. I promise you we will not forget you we understand what you're going through. We will never ever give up. And we will come back. We'll come back together. We didn't get it all this overnight. Alice presently Biden speaking earlier tonight also bring an ABC news political director Rick Klein. Rick an ambitious plan outlined there he said it will not come cheap but we cannot. Afford to not do it what stood out to you and how realistic is if in this proposal to move forward in the new congress. This is a staggering array of of program changes subsidies. Legal changes. A long time priorities of progressives many of them tailored and enhanced for the Kobe age. The price tag of of some two trillion dollars of course stands out given the divided politics that worrying. But the calculation here from for from president elect Biden. Is that he single gate to try to establish very early on in his presidency if there is a biting coalition and that it can rally in his words with some unity. All around the magnitude of the challenge. Very critical of the way if Kobe nineteen vaccine has has been held hasn't ruled out trying to tell Marshall some degree of unity in a time where people are just so divided you can imagine a more conducive. Atmosphere in the country and in the congress than the one that is confronting Joseph Biden yes the Democrats control congress but they are very very narrow majorities and it is my take everything that Joseph Biden can Muster to try to get packages like this through the house and especially the scent. And this plan comes on to the Specter of a looming impeachment trial in the senate in the first days of the Biden administration. How could that complicate the legislative calendar and for getting bipartisan supports this plan. Jeff think about it Lizzy the opening days of the Biden presidency you're gonna be consumed with an impeachment trial. We're gonna see that in the senate this and it's gonna have to focus will be some of its time on that. As opposed it. Confirming appointments and of course considering this proposal. An. And even we have this atmosphere of tension on Capitol Hill as we've reported a members of congress are some of them fearful that other members of congress may be out to harm them those are very serious allegations. No one can even guarantee. Really the safety of the inauguration itself. I'll do you hear from from president elect Biden. He's desire to to address a joint session of congress next month as the first time he's outlined that plan to talk about it what he calls build back better program. I'm again try to get some political momentum early on to try to cut through where this is. And I'll tell you this the Biden team has long said that whatever the noise of Donald Trump and there's been a lot of it especially lately. The American people recognize what the challenge that Joseph Biden he confronts really means and coping nineteen getting the economy back baby babies beyond that the trying to confront the nation's didn't divisions he be thinking gets immunity. I don't of a shared commitment to defeating corona virus once and for all. Our thanks to Rick Klein and when we come back how airlines are tackling the rising disturbances in the sky after that mob rioting Capitol Hill. The former governor pleading not guilty for his role in the Flint water crisis more on the charges he faces.

While eleven Republican senators suggested they'll vote no for that there leaning toward now. Seven have given neutral responses were said no common among them the senate majority leader Mitch McConnell who said he hasn't made a final decision and intends to listen to legal arguments. McConnell rarely review some president and on policy has voted with him 91% of the time. Yesterday 197. House Republicans voted not to impeach the president this week while ten voted in favor.

We have we have some experience we. We are obviously working with our local a law enforcement are our state police we have capitol police here. And we also have this the National Guard available. So we have prepared. Unfortunately fences are up around our our State's capital of the bottom floor the win this have been boarded up it's it's so unfortunate situation but. We've made it known to these individuals that if they come here looking for trouble. That we're ready and the outcome is not can be good form. And as you just mentioned Virginia of course no stranger to the threat of violent protests from white supremacist groups as we witnessed in Charleston on 2017. And you're also the potential target of militia groups and discussed kidnapping you last year what lessons you take away from those moments that could help the country. At this point deal with the threat going forward. Well the first lesson is that words have meaning in our leaders. Need to be very careful. Without a message to those that support them and you know over the past few years Lindsay we have a president that is really created a tinderbox. Armed with the lies that he has been telling recently after November the third saying that that. The election was stolen in these individuals that support him here this over and over again. And then on Wednesday a week ago he'd literally threw a claim on their tinderbox and the and the rest is history so. We take the stuff threats very very seriously. Our legislatures here in town now doing the work of the people and so we're gonna do everything we can. To keep Virginia safety keeper capital safe then and also to assure that there's a peaceful transition of power. In Washington we hope that things calmed down every day that this president is an office is one day too many. A dishonor. That he can leave Washington. The better for all of. And lastly turning to the pandemic we saw you at a mass vaccination for teachers in Virginia earlier this week but you're status had a rather sluggish roll out so far with CDC data showing Virginia the back of the pack administering this 26% of the doses the commonwealth has received so far so what would you say in the Biden administration can do to help states speed up distribution and what can Virginia. Do better as well. Where's our overseas can be a breath of fresh air to have a a partner in Washington that will work with the states and that. The localities. You know we. We have only about you know again twelve other states that have given more vaccinations then Virginia has. Those states' most Omar are larger than Virginia but there's no question that we can do it. More rapidly and so about a week ago I made announcement that one we're gonna have a goal. And that is to go to 25000. As quickly as we can and de and then 50000. Shots today. But we brought on what I call off field general doctor Daniel Bullock who has a lot of experience logistically. And vaccinations and so he's on the ground and then and working hard. A the National Guard obviously will be up part of this program moving forward and and I basically told it. They clinics and hospitals and health departments if you're not used in the the doses that we give you don't lose it and so. All of that to Geller I think Megan and I have provided some urgency. For the vaccination program in Virginia and we've moved from 1821 B. We've lowered the age of individuals to 65 south. As long as we can get to supply that we need in Virginia we're ready two I wanted. Distribute this vaccination and I think our numbers will continue to rise on a daily basis till we get to our goal of 50000 shots a day. Governor north and we thank you so much for your time appreciate you coming on the show thank you so much revenue states say you too. Nearly seven years after the contamination influence drinking water tonight the former Michigan governor and eight other officials are facing charges Alex Perez has more.

Alex thanks so much and we now learning that two point it's wanting was the second hottest year ever recorded. The average temperature was one point 76 degrees warmer than average here in the Northern Hemisphere we had. The warmest year ever hottest year ever recorder remains 2016. The world's seven warmest years have all occurred since 2014. Could nineteen has forced restaurants across the country to shutter their doors pitting many to take out only options but this. Single use plastic containers have skyrocketed. This week's it's not too later to see takes look at how companies are stepping up to tackle this crisis. One reusable container at a time. Hi I'm did you see and it's not too late happening here. And a lot of people thinking about New Year's new year may be wanted to meditation or fitness diet certainly makes it into a leather resolutions. And not just thinking about the food that you eat but what the food comes it. We all know with an order in more take out and for restaurant's takeout has the and a safe here during the pandemic. However it's been really bad for the environment. One of the things that has kept restaurants alive in the pandemic has been take out but. It's also created an influx of waste. In the US food and its packaging make up 45%. Of land fill us in India. 245. Million food containers were tossed out in 2018 alone. And in Europe more than two billion. Food product packages are put in a trash every year. The last thing I want to do was vilify restaurants for hurting the planet when they're just trying to survive during the pandemic. But we found that there's a solution where they can save their profits and the planet at the same time. It's already happening in San Francisco Washington DC and New York. The California nonprofit called the rethink disposables has worked with hundreds of restaurants and even a school district to get rid. Of single use food container waste. Yeah our. Arrests are switching to use they will prevent 1101000. Pieces. I am. And can increase -- may be used on everything millionaire. Yeah. Being just seating for small business is it between being abstinent when and 1000 dollars annual Rossini yet. Alex how one works. It's just like deliveries are plugged hugs England and uses her. Deliver it. What it. I think sometimes. India and there's a big difference. It's food. Comes any. Heavy duty containers. And after you eat it. When you do with your food don't thrown LA take it contain as get them back to the next delivery guy are you can return them to any restaurant that partake in deliberate hero I got about but Conklin replaced is at a time place. The restaurant deeply sanitizing of them and the next deliver zero order goes out in that same container. In the number of single he is take out products has skyrocketed. There are about 400 four and fourteen. Million pounds of Revlon disposable. I mean not everything from little forethought packet reports and they. They're probably a billion take on indicators that role in the bargain here. And then at the end of it I like that savings for the restaurant. Beyond that bit packaging costs them money. That's right I mean you know but keep I keep expecting their community twenties. I ever read that it pays 85 cents for a fifty. Please let me sending him wannabes they're saving money that it would otherwise have to stand on Bob I think we've been here is for one or in the Vatican's normal. Doesn't there owns sky ice it's a tie and specialty ice cream shop in Brooklyn. Both his locations have been part of deliver zero for just over a year. Brandon and Adam walked through our doors a year and a half ago. My god he did the solution is here. It's such a great product. You know completely sustainable and it really starting to catch on. Whether you're normally take out and Larry you had to go to a lot more take down ten actually helpful profit and plan. Absolutely children spending left 11 thing he could go container.
