McCarthy punts on punishing QAnon-aligned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

House Republican leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy says Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene?s past statements ?do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference,? suggesting she won?t be stripped of her committee assignments. A growing number of the GOP, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, are speaking out about wanting their party to expunge voices promoting wild conspiracy theories. Meanwhile, Greene says ?I don?t think I have anything to apologize for? and that her social media posts do not reflect who she is as a person. Democratic Rep.

House Dems: Trump is ?singularly responsible? for inciting insurrection

The House impeachment managers argue that former Pres. Trump is ?singularly responsible? for inciting the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol as Trump?s legal team claims he?s protected by the First Amendment and a Senate conviction would be unconstitutional. Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries was an impeachment manager during Trump?s first impeachment trial. He joins AC360 to react to the former President?s defense strategy. Plus, Senate Republicans are distancing themselves from GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene as many are indicating enough is enough. House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy met with Greene after several of her debunked theories over the years came to light, ranging from her questioning whether the Parkland school shooting was a ?false flag? to whether a plane really hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Sen. John Thune, a member of the GOP leadership, said House Republicans have to decide if they want to focus on ?limited government and fiscal responsibility, free markets, peace through strength and pro-life? or if they ?want to be the party of conspiracy theories and QAnon.?

Adviser: Trump wants world to know ?election was stolen from him?

An adviser to former Pres. Trump says he may add more attorneys to his legal team before his impeachment trial starts. Trump named two new lawyers for his trial a day after five members of his team left and his team effectively collapsed. A separate adviser said the former President is still obsessed with the false conspiracy theory that he won the election and ?he just wants the world to know the election was stolen from him.? Republican Senator John Cornyn who is a member of the GOP leadership, told CNN it would be a ?disservice for Trump?s legal team to focus on his baseless claims.? Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal is a juror in the upcoming trial and tells Anderson Cooper the argument that impeaching a former president is unconstitutional is flat wrong. He thinks it?d be wiser to rely on that defense instead of arguing the election was stolen, which has already been rejected by the courts. Plus, new Covid-19 hospitalizations and cases are down dramatically even as January became the deadliest month of the pandemic. Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning that even if you?ve had the virus, there?s a ?very high rate? of being reinfected with the new variants if they become dominant.
