Fauci predicts normal life won't return in U.S. before fall 2021
Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, predicted on Thursday that normal life would not resume for most Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic until as late as next fall. That timeline, he warned, will be contingent upon the U.S. “efficiently, quickly and effectively” implementing vaccination programs that have thus far lagged behind schedule, as well as “a rather strict adherence” to personal mitigation measures such as h ...

House votes to override Trump's veto of defense bill
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic-controlled House voted overwhelmingly to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a defense policy bill, setting the stage for what would be the first veto override of his presidency. House members voted 322-87 on Monday to override the veto, well above the two-thirds needed to override. The Senate, which is expected to vote on the override this week, also needs to approve it by a two-thirds majority. Trump ...

The Worst Predictions of 2020
On the last day of 2019, President Donald Trump joined in on New Year’s Eve celebrations at Mar-a-Lago, ringing in 2020 with what was, in retrospect, a terrible prediction about the year ahead. “We’re going to have a great year, I predict,” the president told assembled guests. “I think it’s going to be a fantastic year.” Over the last 12 months, a global pandemic has killed at least 1.65 million people, including more than 333,000 Americans ...

With U.S. Senate at stake, Black voters loom large for Democratic candidates in Georgia
ATLANTA (Reuters) - With hundreds of millions of dollars pouring into twin Jan. 5 Georgia runoff elections to determine control of the U.S. Senate, Democrats and a constellation of allies are waging an all-out campaign to mobilize as many Black voters as possible. The success of their efforts - targeted advertising, virtual events and even door-to-door canvassing despite the coronavirus pandemic - will likely decide the outcome, analysts said. ...

Explainer: Can anything stop Trump from pardoning his family or even himself?
President Donald Trump on Wednesday granted pardons to his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former adviser Roger Stone, sweeping away the most important convictions from U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. So far, Trump, who has 27 days left in the White House until President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20, has issued 70 pardons since taking office. T ...

Powell goes on rant declaring Trump won and the GOP is 'history'
Reacting to a report that Republican Party leaders are discouraging newly-elected Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) from contesting the results of the Electoral College when the Senate reconvenes, conspiracy-minded attorney Sidney Powell launched an attack on the GOP late Christmas Day accusing the GOP of committing "suicide." Powell, who has been behind a string of humiliating defeats in the courts contesting the election results, took to Twitter ...

Trump's mind is elsewhere as unemployment benefits run out for millions of Americans
Washington (CNN)A day before unemployment benefits for millions of Americans were set to expire, President Donald Trump had a different insult in mind: his former-model wife has yet to appear on the cover of a fashion magazine as first lady. "Fake news!" he complained on Twitter from Palm Beach, concerned for Melania's social station on Christmas as Americans hunkered at home, enduring a holiday diminished by pandemic, darkened by the prospect ...

Trump's Pardons Make the Unimaginable Real
Yesterday evening, President Donald Trump issued 15 pardons and five commutations, including two for individuals found guilty of charges arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. He is reportedly considering a raft of other Christmas pardons—for sympathetic allies, for loyal retainers, and even for family members. The prospect of a president using his power to protect aides accused of breaking the law is disturbing, but it’s ...

Is Trump Cracking Under the Weight of Losing?
Donald Trump has never had a week like the week he just had. On the heels of the Supreme Court’s knock-back and the Electoral College’s knockout, some of his most reliable supporters—Mitch McConnell, Vladimir Putin, Newsmax—acknowledged and affirmed the actual fact of the matter. Trump is a loser. Consequently, he is plainly out of sorts, say former close associates, longtime Trump watchers and mental health experts. It’s not just his odd b ...

Trump will soon leave. But his Republican enablers haven't learned their lesson
Joe Biden has won so much that he is, apparently, tired of winning. That was the crux of his speech Monday night, after the electoral college vote that made official (or rather, yet again made official) his victory over Donald Trump. After a blizzard of false claims of fraud and frivolous lawsuits, the race is over. The attempt to overturn the people’s will failed. In particular, the president-elect singled out courageous election officials ...

Trump signs two-day spending bill, narrowly avoiding federal shutdown
President Trump signed a stopgap spending bill Friday night, aimed at extending a midnight deadline to keep the federal government funded and avoid a shutdown. The Senate had passed the measure with a unanimous voice vote. Lawmakers now have until midnight Sunday to pass a pandemic relief package that has eluded them for months. Chip Reid reports. The House passed the temporary funding bill, followed almost immediately by an approval in the Se ...

McConnell sets stage for new face-off with Biden after delivering blow to Trump's election fantasy
(CNN)President Donald Trump is now learning, in the words of his Rolling Stones campaign anthem, that he can't always get what he wants. Sen. Mitch McConnell, on the other hand, usually does. The Republican Senate majority leader chose Tuesday, the day after the Electoral College affirmed President-elect Joe Biden's victory, as the moment to pull the floor out from under the defeated President. He belatedly congratulated his old Senate colleag ...

Press: Does Kevin McCarthy even believe in democracy?
This is not rocket science. The Merriam-Webster dictionary gives a very straightforward definition of sedition: “incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.” You don’t have to graduate from Harvard Law School to recognize that what we see today from President Trump’s lawyers and Republican members of Congress attempting to overturn the results of the Nov. 3 election is nothing less than overt sedition against the Unit ...

Trump antagonizes Republicans with Georgia fundraising ploy
President Donald Trump couldn’t make it any clearer: He needs his supporters to fork over cash for the all-important Georgia Senate runoff elections. “We MUST defend Georgia from the Dems!” he wrote in one recent text message. “I need YOU to secure a WIN in Georgia,” he said in another. “Help us WIN both Senate races in Georgia & STOP Socialist Dems,” he pleaded a few days later.

Few critics of the Electoral College are quite like Polly Baca. Baca believes that the Electoral College, which has chosen U.S. presidents since George Washington, “has absolutely no reason to be.” This year, she brought, and lost, a Supreme Court case challenging her state’s rules over how electors vote. Before electors cast their ballots for president in 2016, she invited several members to her home to plot a way — also unsuccessful — to cir ...

He did not outline his concerns.
