In other news, the U.S. Capitol Police released a statement today that said an "identified militia group" was plotting to attack the capitol again. They did not say which group.

Meanwhile, President Biden says governors lifting their mask mandates too soon are engaging in "Neanderthal thinking."

“The last thing, the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking, that, ‘In the meantime, everything’s fine. Take off your mask. Forget it.’ It still matters,” Biden said.

Finally, the Pentagon's investigation into former White House doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson found he was hostile and abusive to his staff and he drank on the job.

(CNN) - The Department of Defense inspector general has issued a scathing review of Rep. Ronny Jackson during his time serving as the top White House physician, concluding that he made "sexual and denigrating" comments about a female subordinate, violated the policy for drinking alcohol while on a presidential trip and took prescription-strength sleeping medication that prompted concerns from his colleagues about his ability to provide proper care. [...]

Jackson claimed the report was politically motivated in a statement to CNN on Tuesday, saying the inspector general "resurrected" old allegations against him because he refused to "turn my back on President (Donald) Trump," who was a vocal supporter of his 2020 congressional bid. He also told CNN he rejects "any allegation that I consumed alcohol while on duty."
