Biden reverses Trump’s rule and shuts down half of Alaska’s oil reserves for new drilling
The Biden administration reversed a Trump-era rule and closed nearly half of Alaska’s pristine wilderness area to fossil fuel exploration.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), an agency of the Department of the Interior, announced on Monday the closure of 48 percent of the federally owned national petroleum reserve, located on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, to oil and gas projects.
The new guidelines mirror the December 2020 rule, issued in the final days of the Trump administration, which saw 82 percent of the 36,000-square-mile tract open to oil and gas development.

What McCarthy said in the leaked call
Senior Republican Representative in the US House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy told colleagues he fears members of his party, including Representatives Matt Gaetz and Moe Brooks, endangering other lawmakers with their comments after the attack on the US Capitol, according to a New York Times report.
In his call with other Republican leaders days after the January 6, 2021 riots, McCarthy raised concerns about comments made by members closely aligned with Donald Trump after supporters of the then-president stormed the Capitol.
“Summoning the other members, these things have to stop,” McCarthy said in a recording of the call published by The Times. The tension is too high, the country is too crazy. I don’t want to look back and think we caused something and someone got hurt.”
Representative Steve Scalise, the No. 2 Republican in the House of Representatives, noted that Gates’ comments may be illegal, according to The Times.
The offices of Mr. McCarthy, Mr. Scalise, Mr. Gates and Mr. Brooks did not immediately respond to requests for comment. “Kevin McCarthy spoke before the facts were known,” the newspaper quoted Brooks on Tuesday as dismissing the criticism.
The audio was obtained through book reporting by Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin.
McCarthy has denied previous similar allegations.

Jan 6 The Jan 6 panel will give a second call to McCarthy before considering action
The US Capitol riot investigation committee is considering sending a second request for Republican Party leader Kevin McCarthy to appear for an interview after he previously refused to appear voluntarily.
Chairman Benny Thompson said the committee is also considering calling in an expanded group of House Republicans for interviews, as more information emerges about their private conversations with the Trump White House in the lead up to the Capitol siege.
“We’ll probably look at engaging some lawmakers by advocacy at this point, and we’ll go from there,” Thompson said at the Capitol.
Mr. Thompson said Mr McCarthy’s previous invitation had been sent “before this latest revelation reported on tape”. He told reporters that it was “probably” that McCarthy would get another invite.

Matt Gates rips McCarthy ‘crying’ over leaked calls
GOP Representative Matt Gaetz has criticized Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and GOP Webb Steve Scales after their audio recording revealed concerns that a Florida man had incited violence on January 6.
“Rep. McCarthy and Rep. Scalise had views on President Trump and I shared them about the crying calls with Liz Cheney, not us,” Gates wrote. “This is the behavior of weak men, not leaders.”
“While I was protecting President Trump from accountability, they were protecting Liz Cheney from criticism,” he said. “On the bright side, you no longer have to be a lobbyist with a $5,000 check to really know what McCarthy and Scales are thinking. You just have to listen to their own words as they disparage Trump and the Congressional Republicans they are fighting for.”
Earlier on Tuesday, a New York Times report revealed details of a phone call Mr. McCarthy with the GOP leadership on January 10. McCarthy said Gates is “putting people at risk.” He pointed to Mr. Gaetz and Mo Brooks of Alabama for threatening the security of other lawmakers and the Capitol complex.

U.S. Capitol riot chief will hold public hearings in June, says chairman
The committee chair said Tuesday that the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riots on Capitol Hill will likely hold public hearings in June before it issues a final report.
Committee members previously said they planned to hold hearings in early spring.
Representative Penny Thompson said the committee is “still likely looking into the early fall” of releasing the final report on the case.
The revised timetable would allow the commission to release results before the November 8 midterm elections and determine who will control Congress for the next two years.
The commission is investigating then-President Donald Trump’s role in the riots when thousands of his supporters attacked police and stormed the building.
