Brazil has over 1,500 people in custody in a large police gymnasium after protestors stormed Congress in support of former President Jair Bolsonaro. They called for the military to remove recently sworn-in President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
Former President Bolsonaro is in the U.S. He was hospitalized with “severe stomach pains” in Florida which he says are related to a 2018 stabbing. The U.S. has condemned these protests, and lawmakers are asking President Biden what he is going to do about it, given that Bolsonaro is on U.S. soil. Many Democrats are calling for Bolsonaro to be extradited to Brazil even though he hasn't committed any crimes.
Now there are reports that Bolsonaro reporters are being detained in adverse conditions with no food, water or bathrooms. At least two people have died. We will break down this news in today’s episode of Redacted.
Trump Biden Had Classified Documents He Shouldn't Have
The FBI is looking into classified documents that President Biden should not have had that were found in one of his offices. Attorney General Merrick Garland has assigned the U.S. attorney in Chicago to look into the documents and how they got there.
CBS News reports that the President’s lawyers found the documents in November and notified the National Archives.
So now the parallels between this and accusations against President Trump for possessing classified documents. Is this different? Will there be a pre-dawn raid on President Biden’s home any time soon? Can the media hyperventilate about Trump’s possession of documents if Biden has done something similar? And why can’t the U.S. keep better track of its classified documents?

A new study by Syracuse University shows that the lowest-income Americans are five and a half times more likely to be audited than every other income group. So about that tax-the-rich bit that politicians like to shout about? It’s not real.
The University asked former IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig to publish audit data but he ignored the request. The University then filed a freedom of information request in order to get this data. They found that people with over $1 million in assets were slightly more likely to be audited in 2022, up by 2.8% from the previous year. Still, the risk of audit is far higher for low-income earners, recipients of the earned income credit.
The IRS has repeatedly said that they are low staffed so they now rely on what they call “correspondence audits.” These are sort of shots across the bow letters asking taxpayers for more information or money. The study concludes that low-income earners are targeted by these “because they are easy marks in an era when IRS increasingly relies upon correspondence audits yet doesn’t have the resources to assist taxpayers or answer their questions.”
7.9. That is the magnitude of an earthquake that hit the Banda Sea, off the coast of Indonesia, triggering tsunami warnings.
14 million. That is how many refunds the IRS issued after correcting 2020 tax returns.
Twitter Files: The Pfizer Edition
A new round of Twitter files shows that Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a Pfizer director, former FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor, pressured Twitter to remove information that might negatively influence public perception of the Covid vaccine.
First of all, one person should not be all of those things: a Pfizer director, FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor. Those roles inherently conflict but alas, Gottlieb is those things. New documents show that he objected to a August, 2021 Tweet from a fellow doctor that suggested that natural immunity after a Covid infection was superior to the immunity provided by the vaccine, which has been proven in several large studies. Still, Gottlieb acted on this Tweet, asking Twitter to flag it because he saw it as “corrosive” and worried that it might end up generating news coverage. Twitter flagged the tweet with a “misleading” tag.
The next week, Gottlieb flagged another Tweet about the low mortality rate in children from Covid. Not ironically, the Pfizer vaccine was approved for children shortly after.
These documents show a pattern of Pfizer shutting down debate through its influence and connections. Should CBNC still allow Gottlieb air time after this clear manipulation based on personal interests?
