“I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together four years ago is far from over,” Trump said in his first speech leaving Washington. “We are gathered this afternoon to talk about the future — the future of our movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country.”

A clear reversal from his previous comments when the Kentucky Republican said the GOP needed to move past Trump. “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people," McConnell said on the Senate Floor two weeks after a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol. A pointed rebuke of Trump that has faded away and replaced by the Leader's supportive words less than a month after denouncing the former president. 

Trump's argument was the subpoena issued by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance was broad and issued in bad faith. The documents are now subject to grand jury secrecy rules that restrict them from being released publicly. Without social media, Trump released a statement via email on Monday, calling the ruling "a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country."

Donald Trump is scheduled to speak at next week's Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida, a source with direct knowledge tells Axios on Saturday. It will mark the first public appearance for the former president since leaving office a month ago. Among the topics of Trump's speech will include a direct attack of President Biden's immigration plan and his vision of the GOP going forward.

"After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence."

The Wyoming Representative, who has served in congress since 2017, reportedly refused to apologize for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump during a closed-door meeting on Wednesday. Cheney was among the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach the former president for inciting the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

"If you voted that it was unconstitutional then how in the world would you ever hope to convict somebody for this?" Paul asked his colleagues on Tuesday. "Forty-five of us, almost the entire caucus, 95% of the caucus, voted that the whole proceeding was unconstitutional. This is a big victory for us. Democrats can beat this partisan horse as long as they want-- this vote indicates it's over, the trial is all over."

House Democrats will "carry the sole impeachment charge across the Capitol late Monday evening, a rare and ceremonial walk to the Senate by the prosecutors who will argue their case," according to AP News. The 50 democrats in the Senate hope enough Republicans in the chamber, some who've publicly denounced Trump, will unify with them to bar the cast-off president from holding office again in the future.

One of the last actions of Donald Trump's presidency was over 140 pardons. A name many people believed would be cleared of his wrongdoing was Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage AKA Joe Exotic. The star of the Netflix series "Tiger King" was disappointed he wasn't on Trump's short list and made his feeling known via a post on Twitter.
