There are just eight days left before the inauguration of Joe Biden, but the outgoing President has “something up his sleeve”, Chair of the Defence Select Committee Tobias Ellwood has warned. Ivanka, who is a senior adviser to the President, and her husband Jared Kushner, were branded as the only ones who can “talk him down from the ledge” by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Last week, Trump supporters, who were riled up after a MAGA rally in Washington DC, stormed the Capitol building in a bid to overturn the result of the presidential election.
In the violence that ensued, four people died and 52 people have now been arrested.
It came just hours after Democrat candidates won both Georgia senate elections, giving the party control of Congress.
Meanwhile, Mr Trump has claimed the election was “stolen”, told the rioters “I love you” and described them as “patriots”.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The video was taken down from Twitter and Mr Trump was later permanently banned after being accused of inciting violence.

Washington DC is now under curfew, a number of top officials in the White House have quit and Nancy Pelosi has announced her intention to impeach the President for the second time.
Mr Ellwood told Express.co.uk that he is concerned Mr Trump is plotting something for his final days in office.
He said: “The fact that he is failing to share information ‒ as he is duty-bound to do ‒ suggests he has something up his sleeve and he is going to go out with a bang.
“Whether that's connected with some formal intervention in Iran, or something else, that’s difficult to know.
