Facebook announced Friday that it will end former President Trump’s suspension on January 7, 2023, two years after his account was taken away. In addition, they announced that two years will be the maximum punishment for those public figures guilty of inciting mobs during times of civil unrest.

Trump’s Facebook account was suspended following the riots on Jan 6 At first, the social media’s Oversight Board upheld Trump’s suspension. However, they criticized its duration. The board asked that leadership, including Vice President Nick Clegg, review Trump’s suspension.

As a result, Clegg said they would change the nature of the ban. The board gave Facebook six-month-deadline to come to a decision. Facebook came to its decision after a month. Now, the Oversight Board will review the response again, and determine if it is proportional.

Now, public figures face suspension between one month and two years for violating Facebook’s policies during times of “ongoing violence” and “civil unrest.” And, should Trump violate the rules again after this suspension ends, he could still be up for permanent removal.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
