HeadlineJun 15, 2021

A Chicago police officer who joined the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has been arrested, becoming the 465th person charged in connection with the insurrection. Officer Karol Chwiesiuk wore a Chicago Police Department sweatshirt as he texted selfies of himself breaching the offices of Senator Jeff Merkley.

Meanwhile, weapons maker Boeing has resumed major campaign contributions to three Republican congressmembers who voted to overturn the official certification of 2020’s Electoral College votes: Representatives Jack Bergman, Vicky Hartzler and Steve Scalise. Boeing briefly stopped campaign contributions in the wake of the January 6 insurrection.
