My interview with Jan 6 Committee's Zoe Lofgren where she tells me there's no expectation that Pence or Trump will appear before the committee, keeping quiet the date of Ginni Thomas' appearance for her 'dignity,' and having the Weds hearing midday to reach Fox viewers.

Putin's in trouble, Mikko Hautala 🇫🇮 tells me, but won't give up and will escalate. Amb Hautala was in Moscow before DC, he says until now Russians felt like it was for others to fight the war but they're realizing 'nobody can stay away from this conflict.'

One reason the Jan 6 committee is holding its Wednesday hearing in the middle of the day is to get Fox News viewers, Zoe Lofgren tells me. Fox often plays the midday hearings, she said, but not in primetime.

Jan. 6 cmte won't hear from Mike Pence or Trump. Zoe Lofgren tells CNN's Alex Marquardt while Pence had indicated he'd might talk to the cmte 'since that time his people have walked it back.' 'While we would like to hear from both of them, I'm not necessarily expecting we will.'

These are the soldiers who weren't recruited from prison... I'm not an expert but I imagine morale and discipline among the reservists is going to be a huge problem.

One boy, just *17 yrs old*, told me how he went to the protest against mobilisation, was detained, and in the police station was given a document that legally obliged him to go to the military enlistment office with his documents.
