On Tuesday, CBS News' Scott MacFarlane, the key authority covering the January 6 cases, reported that James Grant, a defendant in connection with the Capitol insurrection, had his bail revoked by a judge and was ordered back into pre-trial detention.
The revocation for Grant, who is accused by federal prosecutors of physically lifting a metal barricade and using it to topple Capitol Police, comes after he was discovered with an AR-15 style rifle, 60 rounds of ammo, and fatigues in his car. He was also allegedly under the influence of drugs at the time.

Former Trump ally Boris Johnson in full meltdown -- and members of his own party are plotting his ouster: report
Problems keep piling up for United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was once considered a key international ally of former President Donald Trump.
Johnson has been embroiled in scandal for the last several weeks, as near-daily revelations have shown that Johnson and his staff repeatedly broke their own pandemic restrictions by throwing booze-filled parties at the prime minister's offices at 10 Downing Street in London.
The prime minister once again stoked public anger on Tuesday when he claimed that "nobody told me" that holding an outdoor beer party in May 2020 was against the rules during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, despite the fact that it was Johnson's own government that established the rules.
Now The Mirror is reporting that multiple members of Johnson's own party are plotting to oust him because they believe he's become a massive political liability.
"His time has gone," one unnamed Conservative MP told the publication.
The Mirror's sources claim that 20 Conservative MPs who were first elected to Parliament in 2019 are prepared to submit letters of no confidence this week, which is roughly 40 percent of what would be needed to trigger an election for new leadership, which would end Johnson's tenure.
Steven Swinford, a political editor at The Times, reports that members of Johnson's Cabinet are furious at the rebellion from members of his own party.
"It's pretty sickening," one Cabinet member told him. "They were only elected because of him. Most of them are a load of f*cking nobodies. It's nuts."
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin explained the significance of new revelations that the House January 6 Committee has subpoenaed several top allies of former President Donald Trump and obtained the phone records of Eric Trump.
"Let's get back to the new subpoenas for Rudy Giuliani and others who were at the heart of Trump's failed effort to overturn the 2020 election," said anchor Wolf Blitzer. "Just how essential are they in ... putting the pieces together of this attempted coup?"
"Well, they are essential, but I think we are learning something else from this round of subpoenas," said Toobin. "The committee is getting towards the end of their investigation because these people are the closest people to Donald Trump that there are. You have family members. You have Rudy Giuliani. You have Sidney Powell. Those these are people who were in daily interaction with Donald Trump. There is no one closer."
"The committee has been acting in a methodical way, working from the bottom up," continued Toobin. "We heard many times that they have interviewed 300 people, which includes lower-level people. But by issuing subpoenas to these people, it means that they are getting towards the end, which they had better be because given the possibility of legal challenges, given the possibility of delay from witnesses who don't go to court, they better start getting the witnesses they need in House because ... they may not be in the majority for that much longer."
