A Florida man who took part in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol pleaded guilty Wednesday to one felony count. Paul Hodgkins, who carried a Trump flag as he breached the Senate on January 6, is just the second person to plead guilty and faces a maximum sentence of 21 months in prison, as well thousands of dollars in fines.

Meanwhile, former President Trump has reportedly been telling people he expects to be reinstated as president by August. Earlier this week, Trump discontinued his blog after just 29 days due to low readership.
