FILE PHOTO: President-elect Joe Biden points a finger at his election rally in Wilmington, Delaware, November 7. County election officials have until noon on Friday to finalize their vote counts, said Gabriel Sterling, who manages the Southern state’s voting systems and also appeared at the news conference. Raffensperger said multiple investigations in Georgia have found no evidence of widespread fraud, as alleged by Trump. Raffensperger said officials are looking into whether voting rights groups were trying to register people who have moved out of state or are deceased.

The number of House districts in the 50 states is based on a state’s population count in the decennial national census, which was conducted this year. The justices were expected to decide the case on a expedited basis, with a ruling before the end of the year. There are an estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. The challengers have argued that Trump’s policy violates both the Constitution and the Census Act, a federal law that outlines how the census is conducted. Wall told the justices that it is “very unlikely” the administration will amass data to exclude all immigrants in the country illegally.

From the get-go, President Donald Trump has miscast or exaggerated the military's role in his administration's crash program to develop COVID-19 vaccines. The military theme originated in the May 15 announcement of the creation of Operation Warp Speed. But it has been Trump, not Perna, who has miscast the military's role. "There will not be this vision that some people have that there will be Army trucks driving through the streets delivering vaccine," Perna said October 27. The prominence of military officials in Operation Warp Speed has drawn scrutiny on Capitol Hill, where some have questioned whether an outsize military leadership role would marginalize public health agencies.

After voting in local elections in Rio de Janeiro, Bolsonaro, an ally of U.S. President Donald Trump, said he had heard the U.S. vote was rigged, but presented no evidence. “I have sources and they said there was a lot of fraud,” Bolsonaro said of the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3. “You need to have a more reliable way to vote and the count has to be public,” he said.

Trump plans to pardon former aide Michael Flynn: source
  + stars: | 2020-11-25 | by ( Steve Holland | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
Former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn departs after his sentencing was delayed at U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., December 18, 2018. Trump could still change his mind on the planned pardon, which is among a number of pardons under consideration by the Republican president, the source said. If Trump does grant a reprieve to Flynn, it would be the highest-profile pardon issued by the president since he took office. Flynn, a retired Army general, pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about interactions he had with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before Trump took office. Trump in March said he was strongly considering a full pardon for Flynn.

The decision was solely mine,” GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in a letter. “I was not directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — to delay this determination or to speed it up.”|

Markit’s composite index - a blend of the manufacturing and services readings - increased to 57.9 from 56.3 in October. Meanwhile, a clutch of high-frequency indicators tracked by economists for a real-time reading on activity showed further signs of flattening out. The Atlanta Federal Reserve’s “GDPNow” model currently estimates activity in the current quarter expanding at a 5.6% annualized rate.

President Donald Trump is considering a range of ways to make money and advance his political brand when he leaves office in January, sources close to the president told The Washington Post. Facing $400 million debts, Trump is talking about ways to cash-in through selling rally tickets, lucrative speaking gigs and media appearances, according to the report. But in private conversation with aides, the Post reports, Trump appears to have acknowledged he will be leaving office in January, and is planning his next moves. Sources told the Post that after leaving office, Trump "wants to remain an omnipresent force in politics and the media," and cement his role as a GOP power broker. There have been some signs Fox News is beginning to distance itself from Trump, which the president has fixated on.

Trump, who favored bilateral deals, has reduced support for multilateral institutions like the World Trade Organization, and this year threatened to quit the World Health Organization unless it was reformed. We strive to realize the goal of a free, fair, inclusive, non-discriminatory, transparent, predictable, and stable trade and investment environment, and to keep our markets open,” the G20 statement said. The imminent change of guard in the White House also seemed to unblock bolder G20 language on climate change.

The state board, which includes two Democrats and two Republicans, is due to meet on Monday to certify election results and will have as many as 20 days to do so. The Secretary of State’s office on Friday recommended that the state board certify the results, which showed Biden winning in Michigan by 154,187 votes.

Slideshow ( 3 images )WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump faced a new setback on Saturday in his desperate bid to overturn the U.S. election as a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by his campaign that sought to throw out millions of votes in Pennsylvania. U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann ruled that Trump’s campaign had failed to demonstrate there had been widespread voting fraud in the Nov. 3 election, which Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden. The lawsuit is one of dozens filed by Trump and his Republican allies in the aftermath of the election. They are also seeking to invalidate or change the results through recounts and direct pressure on lawmakers in several states. The campaign has not provided evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump, battered by back-to-back setbacks in his desperate bid to overturn the U.S. presidential election, persisted with claims of massive voter fraud on Saturday, two weeks after Democrat Joe Biden was declared president-elect. His campaign has not been able to provide any evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud, however. “To effectuate this strategy, Defendants are openly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters, including voters in Detroit, Michigan,” said the lawsuit. PRESSURE TO START FORMAL TRANSITIONBiden, who has denounced Trump’s attempt to reverse the election results as “totally irresponsible”, was due to spend Saturday meeting with transition advisers. Senior Republicans have remained largely silent about Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of election fraud or have defended his right to seek redress, but pressure was building after several voiced doubts on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Michigan’s Republican state legislative leaders said after meeting with President Donald Trump on Friday that they had no information that would change the outcome of the presidential election in the state, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden. Michigan is one of several states where the campaign of the Republican Trump is seeking to challenge Biden’s victory in the Nov. 3 election based on unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. Before Friday’s meeting, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said: “This is not an advocacy meeting. He routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country.”Shirkey and Chatfield said any allegation of election fraud should be thoroughly investigated. “Michigan’s certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation,” they said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of Americans filing first-time claims for jobless benefits rose last week, likely as new business restrictions to control spiraling COVID-19 infections unleashed a fresh wave of layoffs, which could further slow the labor market recovery. About 12 million people will lose benefits next month when two government-funded programs expire a day after Christmas. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 638,000 jobs in October, the smallest gain since the jobs recovery started in May. Only 12.1 million of the 22.2 million jobs lost in March and April have been recovered. A record 4.377 million workers filed for extended unemployment benefits in the week ending Oct. 31, up 233,458 from the prior week.

A Justice Department spokesperson said Barr recused himself from any Caterpillar discussions once he became attorney general, but declined further comment.
