WASHINGTON — Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Monday she will step down as top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee in the new session of Congress beginning early 2021, marking a victory for progressives who pressured her to step aside. “After serving as the lead Democrat on the Judiciary Committee for four years, I will not seek the chairmanship or ranking member position in the next Congress,” the California Democrat said in a statement. This has been one of the best set of hearings that I've participated in,” Feinstein told Graham in the committee room. “For the last four years, Republicans leading the Senate Judiciary Committee have turned a blind eye to the worst abuses of the Trump era,” Durbin said in a statement. “While President Trump assaulted the Constitution, the Judiciary Committee abdicated its oversight responsibilities and became little more than a conveyor belt to rubberstamp ideological and largely underqualified judicial nominees.

In that case, a person could test negative but become infectious — and start feeling ill — hours or days later. At the end of that period, all individuals planning to gather should get a coronavirus test. Caitlin Ochs/ReutersFurthermore, he added, a negative test is only useful if you don't engage in any risky behavior after getting swabbed. In the time between getting a negative test result and seeing friends or family, people should not engage in any activity that could expose them to the virus. The event's 100-plus guests were required to test negative using a rapid test before attending.

Some parents lobbied to refuse them admission; others urged tolerance for children not guilty for what they saw as the sins of their grandfather. Once in, Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner tended to violate the unspoken rule of the Washington private-school world, that parents with heavy security details keep disruption to a minimum, four parents said. Three people, including two who were present, spoke about a birthday party Mr. Kushner decided to attend with his children. According to a person familiar with the discussions, talks faltered on the couple’s reluctance to answer basic questions, including when their children were last exposed to Mr. Trump. The family withdrew from the school on Oct. 19 and enrolled in another Jewish elementary school in the Washington suburb of Rockville, Md.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Senator David Perdue, who is seeking reelection in one of two U.S. Senate races in Georgia, bought shares in a Navy contractor just before becoming chairman of a Senate armed services panel in 2019 and then sold the stock at a profit, Senate records show. Perdue became chairman of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Seapower in mid-January 2019, which plays a key role in determining spending on the Navy. The lawmaker then sold BWX stock from Feb. 26 to July 9, 2019, and reported earning between $15,000 and $50,000 from the investment for that year. Between December 2018 and and July 9, 2019, BWX stock rose from less than $42 per share to nearly $53 on the New York Stock Exchange, the records show. A BWX spokesman said the company does not control purchases of its stock by individuals and was unaware of Perdue’s transactions.

The two agencies issued guidance Wednesday on the Paycheck Protection Program – an emergency line of funding for small businesses established by the CARES Act. Generally, applicants are eligible for loan forgiveness if they use at least 60% of the proceeds on payroll costs. The finding frustrated tax professionals, who are concerned that borrowers' income will seem higher on paper if they can't deduct expenses. PPP loans have an interest rate of 1%. Generally, loans issued before June 5th mature in two years, while those issued after that date mature in five years.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Square co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. Dorsey also wrote that the situation with the Post article showed the need for transparency among tech companies when they change their policies. But after journalists and others complained about how Twitter handled the Post article, Twitter revised the policy to cover only materials directly shared by hackers. "The @NYPost example demonstrates the complexity of content moderation and policy enforcement decisions," Dorsey wrote in his prepared statement. Still, Zuckerberg wrote that Section 230's protections allow platforms to facilitate free expression and also moderate objectionable messages including harassment.

Liz Uihlein, who with her husband is a prominent backer of President Donald Trump, has been critical of government restrictions issued in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

They include White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, Trump campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, conservative activist David Bossie, and White House political affairs director Brian Jack. Liz Uihlein, in an interview with The Guardian newspaper last April, criticized Wisconsin's stay-at-home orders issued in the early weeks of the pandemic in the United States.

Likewise, earlier this month, Christie received the Lilly treatment before announcing to the press that he had improved enough to leave the hospital. It's given to Covid-19 patients via an IV infusion that takes more than an hour and requires another hour of observation afterward, the company said. Regeneron applied for emergency use approval for its Covid-19 treatment on Oct. 7. Doctors working with Covid-19 patients across the socio-economic spectrum say their patients are asking why they don't have access to these treatments.
