The Pentagon is pulling twelve National Guard members from working the Presidential Inauguration tomorrow. The FBI found evidence of "inappropriate" comments and said there is a zero tolerance policy. Army General Dan Hokanson said extremism is not tolerated in any branch of the military       President Trump believes he made America great again during his time in the White House. In his final address to the nation, Trump said his administration extends best wishes and the best of luck to President-elect Joe Biden. He said serving as President has been "an honor beyond description" and an extraordinary privilege.       Democrats aren't wasting any time making requests to President-elect Joe Biden. More than two dozen senators wrote a letter to Biden asking him to use the full effect of the Defense Production Act to fight the pandemic. The group, which was led by Senators Tammy Baldwin and Chris Murphy, believes it would be in America's best interest considering "continued supply chain issues."        Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is putting a hold on the confirmation of Alejandro Mayorkas to be the next Homeland Security Secretary. The Republican took exception to plans by the incoming Biden administration to reform immigration policies. The hold means President-elect Joe Biden will not be able to put his national security team in place as quickly as he had hoped.        The third-biggest U.S. lottery jackpot is on the line tonight. The jackpot for tonight's Mega Millions drawing is an estimated 850-million dollars. The estimated cash prize is something over 628-million dollars, for the winner who doesn't want to wait 30 years to collect the whole 850-million bucks.       A rapidly-growing population of Hippos in Columbia is causing damage to the local ecosystem. The hippos are not native to the country and were brought there by kingpin Pablo Escobar in the 1980s. Despite attempts to sterilize the animals, the hippos have gained approval from locals who consider them a possible tourist attraction.
