The U.S. Treasury Department and Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration have been breached by hackers working for a foreign government, possibly Russia, stealing unknown data in an embarrassing security issue for the U.S. government. A breach was alleged to have taken place, affecting both the U.S. Treasury Department and the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, an agency that works on policy relating to the Internet and telecommunications. While details of the attack are largely unknown, it is thought to be serious enough to have forced a meeting of the National Security Council on Saturday. Sources of Reuters advised of the attack, which was conducted by a sophisticated group who were backed by a foreign government. Similar tools used in the attack were previously employed to gain access to other government agencies, the sources claimed.

Videos posted on social media show a band of diminutive, pinch-faced, red-hatted white men chanting that they will “destroy the GOP” because the party has not ensured Trump stays in office—though he has absolutely no valid claim to do so because he undeniably lost the election.
By that evening, members of the white nationalist Proud Boys group began spreading out across the D.C., pulling Black Lives Matter signs off of churches and destroying them—including setting the signs afire:

Eleven hospitals in Kentucky will receive doses of a Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer, perhaps as soon as Monday. Dr Nichelle Jadhav’s hospital is not one of them and she is confused. And she is not alone.
Saint Joseph hospital, where Jadhav works, includes a 433-bed facility in the state’s second largest city of Lexington, which regularly takes transfers of seriously ill Covid-19 patients.
“Working at a large referral center for Kentucky and seeing smaller hospitals on the list – I really don’t have an explanation for why those selections were made,” Jadhav said. “We all are confused about how those 11 hospitals were selected.”
