This weeks Sunday show circuit is expected to center on the Jan. 6 anniversary earlier this week as well as upcoming talks between Russia and the United States as tensions between the two nations rise.
Talks between Russia and the U.S. are set to begin Monday. A senior Biden administration official told reporters on Saturday that the U.S. plans to initiate talks about military exercises in Eastern Europe and missile placements during its meetings with the Russian delegation.
Russia has said it feels threatened by the prospect of offensive missile systems being placed in Ukraine.

So, this is one area where we may be able to reach an understanding if Russia is willing to make a reciprocal commitment, a senior Biden administration official told reporters.
In the meantime, tensions between the U.S. and Russia rose Saturday as the Kremlin rebuked Secretary of State Antony BlinkenAntony BlinkenOvernight Defense & National Security White House hits back at report on US forcesWhy the political violence and economic grievances engulfing Kazakhstan matterKazakhstani president issues ‘shoot to kill’ order to quell protestsMORE, who a day prior said following Russian military intervention in Kazakhstan amid unrest, its sometimes very difficult to get Russians to leave once [they] are in your house.
Blinkens comments seems to be a jab at Russia after the Collective Security Treaty Organization comprised of five former Soviet allies and Russia sent troops into the politically unstable Kazakhstan.
If Antony Blinken loves history lessons so much, then he should take the following into account: when Americans are in your house, it can be difficult to stay alive and not be robbed or raped, Russias foreign ministry said on Telegram, saying the secretary of State’s comment was typically offensive, Reuters reported.
Blinken will appear Sunday on ABCs This Week and CNNs State of the Union.
Closer to home, President Biden forcefully rebuked former President TrumpDonald TrumpRon Johnson to run for reelection: reportsOn the Money US reports meager job growth to finish 2021Jan. 6 chair says panel will move this month to ask Pence to testifyMORE Thursday in an address marking the anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol in 2021.
In his speech, Biden accused Trump of spreading a web of lies that laid the groundwork for the attack by a mob of his supporters last year and directly disputed the former president’s claims, which he and his allies have maintained for some time without evidence, that Biden won the election with fraudulent votes.
Former President Trump responded to President Bidens Jan. 6 speech, claiming that Bidens allusion to his role in the attack deepened political divides in the country.
This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed, Trump said. The former president further reiterated his baseless claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

Pelosi drew attention to the congressional staff who were in the Capitol that day, especially saluting those who whisked the boxes containing the certified electoral votes away from the mob. She also thanked the police officers who faced danger while defending the building.
That day and the days after, they were the defenders of our democracy. And their courage and patriotism remain an inspiration, Pelosi said.
The House Speaker is set to appear on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

“Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again,” he wrote. “Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”
