The clearest sign that there's a new boss at the White House is the deference being paid to coronavirus public health guidelines. To that end, most of Biden's White House staff is working from home, coordinating with colleagues by email or phone.

Democrats control the White House and both chambers of Congress for the first time in a decade. Academic discussions about reining in presidential power won't take precedence while the COVID-19 pandemic's US death toll is above 400,000 and still climbing. "You will not see a political rally on the South Lawn of the White House under President Biden," she said. Congressional Republicans — and the rest of the country — are still getting accustomed to life after the Trump administration. Back when their party held the White House, GOP lawmakers routinely assailed attempts by Democrats to reign in presidential power.

The election-technology company is pursuing litigation against figures who spread conspiracy theories about it. OAN previously sent letters to Dominion doubling down on the conspiracy theories. One America News Network has quietly scrubbed its website of references to election conspiracy theories, which could be an attempt to fend off a lawsuit from the election-technology companies it had targeted in its stories. But sometime in January, OAN removed stories about Dominion from its website. It has also removed stories about Smartmatic, a rival election-technology company also targeted in the conspiracy theories.

Here's how Biden will demolish Trump's legacy

Biden has big plans to torpedo Trump's policies starting on Inauguration Day. Expect Biden to freeze pending rules, rewrite existing regulations, and trash Trump executive orders. There's an obvious playbook waiting for Joe Biden as he prepares to start tearing down Donald Trump's legacy. Many of Trump's early orders unraveled Obama policies; early Biden orders will similarly undo Trump's work. Biden's administration is drawing upon former Obama administration officials, presidential campaign staff, Biden's former campaign trail rivals, and progressive activists.

As secretary of state, Pompeo embraced Trump’s skepticism of European allies and international organizations, employing a brash tone that echoed the president. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo holds a news briefing at the State Department. “That was so deeply unsettling for people in the State Department because Masha is respected and liked,” said one former senior U.S. diplomat. Critics say the Trump administration alienated allies, weakened America’s soft power and cozied up to dictators.

Congress also is expected to investigate how social media and technology companies were used to organize the rampage.

Thinking about powerful, for-profit corporations like Facebook, Twitter and Amazon as platforms is a fundamental misconception that lets the companies off the hook. Now they are full-blown media companies, each with multi-billion-dollar advertising businesses and plenty of professionally produced content that runs alongside oodles of entertaining and informative ephemera. Media companies are liable for what they publish; platforms are mere conduits for other people's deeds. If the tech companies had stuck to cat videos and the like, all would have been fine. Remove legal liability, at least for the mega-caps, and suddenly they will be as responsible for what they publish as other media companies are.

Biden would also phase out higher unemployment benefits automatically over time, tying aid to economic and health conditions, according to the plan. $400 unemployment boostThat law extended unemployment benefits by 11 weeks to mid-March. Six months of extra benefitsThe president-elect would also extend the duration of benefits by about six months, to the end of September instead of mid-March. That would apply to self-employed, gig and part-time workers collecting Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, and recipients of Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, who exhausted their standard allotment of state benefits. "Congress did the right thing by continuing expanded eligibility and extending the number of weeks unemployed workers can receive benefits," according to the outline of Biden's economic plan.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

Even some Democrats prefer this approach to avoid energizing Trump and his millions of supporters with further grievances. So, which among these options would provide the United States the best chance to most quickly heal at home so that it can act more effectively abroad? A supporter of President Trump watches a message asking violent protesters to go home on January 6, 2021 in Salem, Oregon. It would also most quickly allow President Biden to focus on the myriad challenges facing him: the ongoing pandemic, its accompanying economic threats and ongoing challenges from Russia and China. Some argue this week's events should prompt a chastened United States to retreat from that sort of global ambition.

Trump hinted at the historic delay tactic in a statement issued Tuesday night, "Our Vice President has several options under the U.S. Constitution. "He's been counting down the hours to minimize mistakes," said a third Republican close to the White House.

The 25th Amendment formally outlines the transition of power if the president is unable or unfit to serve. Section IV also allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the president from office. The amendment states that if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office, the vice president becomes president. "Unless the vice president puts himself — maybe one day, herself — forward, no one else can really basically, at least within the 25th Amendment framework, proclaim an unwilling president 'disabled.'"

The vote could also determine the fate of another issue that's been hotly debated on Capitol Hill in recent days — whether or not to send $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans. Instead, second stimulus checks of $600 per person are now starting to arrive to millions of Americans. A Hill-HarrisX poll found that 75% of voters think $600 stimulus checks are "too little." At a campaign rally Monday in Atlanta, Biden cited the ramifications that choice could have on the possibility of $2,000 stimulus checks. "This maneuver to combine all three issues is intended to kill the possibility of $2,000 checks ever becoming law," Schumer said.

President Donald Trump made last-minute objections to the COVID-19 stimulus bill, asking Congress to up its $600 stimulus checks to $2,000. By pushing for bigger checks, he could end up tanking a stimulus package altogether by blowing up a fragile consensus. Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesEven if Trump vetoes the bill, Congress could pass it anywayIt isn't clear if Trump will veto the bill. If more than one-third of either the House or Senate decides they don't want to force through a bill against Trump's will, then Trump's veto would stick. Asking for too much could get him nothingIt's also worth noting that Trump's criticism of the spending bill was not only down to stimulus checks.

The Biden administration that arrives in January is primed to crack down on white-collar crime after a steady drop under his two most recent predecessors. Despite its slick name, white-collar crime can also be just as dangerous — if not more dangerous — than violent crime. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — who've long advocated for tougher oversight of corporate crime — Biden called Wall Street "greedy as hell." The growing use of those agreements in major financial crime cases has, unsurprisingly, coincided with a drop in prosecutions. The person also said they're confident that the Biden administration "will be more assertive" in tackling financial crime, citing the president-elect's Cabinet picks so far.
