California certified its presidential election Friday and appointed 55 electors pledged to vote for Democrat Joe Biden, officially handing him the Electoral College majority needed to win the White House. There have been no suggestions that any of Biden's pledged electors would contemplate not voting for him. Results of the Electoral College vote are due to be received, and typically approved, by Congress on Jan. 6. Trump has fruitlessly tried to stop those states from certifying Biden as the winner and appointing electors for the former vice president. If they don't, the electors appointed by the states' governors — all pledged to Biden in these cases — must be used.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are expected to reach an agreement within days that will help ease a standoff that has embroiled the Gulf region since 2017, three people briefed on the discussions told NBC News on Friday. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut off all diplomatic ties to Qatar three years ago and began a blockade against their former ally, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism. In exchange, the Qataris would drop pending international lawsuits against Saudi Arabia, according to one source. In August 2017, Doha restored full diplomatic relations with Tehran, deepening the feud with the other countries. Saudi Arabia did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In a series of interviews, Fauci questioned the level of scrutiny the British regulators had given the authorization process of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine, which was approved for widespread use in the U.K. on Wednesday. Fauci even suggested that the process had been rushed after Britain became the first nation to formally approve the vaccine. The U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA, defended its approach to the vaccine in a statement issued Friday. Stephen Evans, a professor of Pharmacoepidemiology at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said he thought Fauci had “over-stated” concerns about the U.K. assessment process of the Pfizer, BioNTech vaccine. Fauci’s comments landed as some British officials pointed to the vaccine rollout as a sign the U.K. superiority.

"Without considering racial equity, we deepen the cracks that systemic racism has already created in our health care system." Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, an expert on health care inequality at Yale University, said testing and vaccine programs must consider fairness and equity along with safety to be truly effective. Mays, who was an early HIV/AIDS researcher, said many of the disparities experienced today in Black communities during the pandemic mirror what she witnessed in the 1980s. "Structural racism is embedded in our health care system." "These anti-family policies that have been in place kept our communities away from the health care system," she said.

MARIETTA, Ga. — Election officials are investigating the actions of a Florida lawyer who they say tried to register to vote in a high-stakes runoff in Georgia that will decide control of the U.S. Senate. The lawyer went online and attempted to register to vote using the address of his brother in Hiram, Georgia, said Deidre Holden, the elections supervisor in Paulding County, Georgia. “This is not about Republican or Democrat — this is about doing what’s right,” Holden told The Associated Press on Thursday. The Florida lawyer told WSB-TV that he was joking when he was captured on video speaking about the plan during a Nov. 7 political rally in the Sunshine State. But Holden said she’s interested in learning whether any other out-of-state residents tried to register in Georgia after being encouraged to do so at the Florida rally.

Barr told the Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday the department found no evidence of widespread voter fraud. Despite that, Trump has continued to say without evidence that the election was marred by widespread fraud, claims that have been repeatedly rejected by state and federal officials. Barr has long been a staunch Trump ally, winning scorn from Democrats and many of the department’s own career prosecutors who have accused him of putting Trump’s personal interests ahead of the country’s interests.

As part of the suit, they have subpoenaed records from Ivanka Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Thomas Barrack Jr., a close friend of the president who chaired the inaugural committee, and others. He has accused the committee of misusing nonprofit funds and coordinating with the hotel’s management and members of the Trump family to arrange the events.
