House GOP members have objected to a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office following last week’s U.S. Capitol riots.

House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment on Monday. Rep. Alex Mooney, R-West Virginia, objected to it.

The article of impeachment called for Pence to intervene “within 24 hours” and if the president does not resign, the House will move as early as Wednesday to consider the impeachment resolution on the floor.

More than 210 Democrats have signed for the impeachment, just short of the majority of the House. GOP party leaders are opposed to the impeachment, despite reports that several Republicans are said to be considering voting to impeach.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would bring the bill up for a full vote Tuesday if the resolution was blocked.

The House will move forward with a full vote on the resolution Tuesday, The New York Times has reported.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
