Our Calendar for Jan. 11, 2017

Good morning. Here’s what’s on TPM’s editors’ radar today.

9:00 a.m. House begins debate on Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act reauthorization, a key NSA surveillance tool. Rand Paul reportedly has a filibuster planned.

1:30 p.m. President Trump speaks to the media at the White House following a prison reform roundtable.

2:15 p.m. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders delivers a press briefing.

Stories in progress:

Paul Manafort’s legal troubles are only getting deeper. He and former business associate Rick Gates are being sued by Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with whom he did business during his days as a globetrotting political operative. Deripaska is claiming that Manafort and Gates bilked his company for $1.1 million — and is using Robert Mueller’s indictment against them as further evidence that the two are fraudsters. Tierney Sneed will have more on that story later today.
