FILE PHOTO: U.S. President-elect Joe Biden answers a question as he announces members of economics and jobs team at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., January 8, 2021. REUTERS/Kevin LamarqueWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will wait for a recommendation from his intelligence advisers on whether to share classified information with President Donald Trump after the Republican leaves office, Biden’s top aide said on Sunday. Ron Klain, the incoming White House chief of staff, made the comment after former principal deputy director of national intelligence, Sue Gordon, wrote an op-ed arguing against sharing such information with Trump once he has left the presidency. “We’ll certainly look for a recommendation from the intelligence professionals in the Biden administration ... and we will act on that recommendation,” he said. Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was more blunt, telling CBS’ “Face The Nation” program, “I don’t think he can be trusted with it.”

Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately. And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP generally over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events. Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. (Those findings, however, contrast with a recent Pew poll showing Trump’s job rating declining among Republicans.) An additional 9 percent say Trump is "not as good as most."

BEIRUT/LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) - The company that bought the ammonium nitrate which exploded in Beirut last August had possible links to two Syrian businessmen under U.S. sanctions for ties to President Bashar al-Assad, according to a report by a Lebanese journalist and London company filings. Haswani, Khoury and his brother Mudalal Khoury have all been sanctioned by Washington for supporting Assad’s war effort. The U.S. Treasury accused Mudalal Khoury in 2015 of “an attempted procurement of ammonium nitrate in late 2013”. That address was also the registered office for IK Petroleum Industrial Company Ltd, in which Imad Khoury was a director, the filings show. The ammonium nitrate was loaded onto a ship called the Rhosus in Georgia, shipping records show, before making an unscheduled stop in Lebanon in late 2013.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden was elected on a promise to heal the nation, saying Republicans would have a post-Donald Trump "epiphany" that would finally allow for bipartisan governance. There must be accountability for lies and lawbreaking. Biden has already ruled out a pardon for Trump, saying at an MSNBC town hall before the election that he would defer entirely to prosecutors and not get involved. But the new president will set the tone for how former Trump officials and defenders should be treated in public life. "A lack of accountability is the quickest path to instability and future division," Perriello said.

Mr. Trump has shunned that process more than any recent president, creating an ad hoc system in the White House run by Mr. Kushner and relying on input from an informal network of outside advisers, including Mr. Tolman. That system favors pardon seekers who have connections to Mr. Trump or his team, or who pay someone who does, said pardon lawyers who have worked for years through the Justice Department system. Any explicit offers of payment to the president in return could be investigated as possible violations of bribery laws; no evidence has emerged that Mr. Trump was offered money in exchange for a pardon. Some who used resources or connections to try to get to Mr. Trump say clemency should be granted to more people, independent of their clout. “The criminal justice system is badly broken, badly flawed,” said the former senator, Tim Hutchinson, a Republican who served in Congress from 1993 to 2003.

Body cam footage from Boston civil rights protests shows how police are out of control. In the wake of last week's Capitol riots, the danger of the American right-wing has become impossible to ignore. Cops on the groundOff duty cops were a presence in the crowd that stormed the Capitol, according to numerous reports. Police showed their appreciation during civil rights protests this summer in what could be a preview of what's to come. This treatment provides a striking contrast with how police respond to progressives and civil rights demonstrators.

President-elect Biden's actions this past week underscore that he understands his opportunity and is in a hurry to achieve it. So how has President Trump been helpful to President-elect Biden's ambitions, particularly with his actions of the past days? They are even more keen now, having seen the dangers to American democracy in such stark relief, to embrace President-elect Biden. "President Biden is facing not only an economic crisis but also a political crisis, a cultural crisis, a public-health crisis and an epistemological one," said historian Jon Meacham in The Wall Street Journal. Biden faces vast challenges, but Donald Trump through his actions of the past days inadvertently made the President-elect's job easier.

Low mortgage rates have contributed to an active housing market over the last several months, with markets across the country recording skyrocketing home prices. Freddie Mac, the popular loan company that surveys weekly mortgage data, has reported low 30-year fixed rates since the onset of the pandemic. She points to the an increase in the 10-year Treasury yield, which usually indicates that mortgage rates will follow. Either way, we can expect mortgage rates to breach the 3% mark at some point this spring," Cohn wrote in her recent newsletter. "To put that in perspective, mortgage rates averaged 3.625% in January of 2020 — and at that time, we thought that was a great deal!"

ET Covid-19 Live Updates: States Reel After Trump Administration’s Vaccine Promises Unravel The world is bracing for a surge of virus variants that are more contagious. States are scrambling after the Trump administration’s vaccine promise falls apart. “We are releasing the entire supply we have for order by the states, rather than holding second doses in physical reserves,” he said, adding that vaccine doses would no longer be stockpiled. “We should’ve known not to believe a word” from the Trump administration, Mr. Polis said. Mr. Trump left the position of science adviser unfilled for 18 months.

Several historians are voicing concern about collecting Trump's White House records because of the administration's bad track record of preserving documents. Historians are growing increasingly concerned about collecting Trump's White House records because of the administration's inconsistency with preserving documents and the president's long-standing habit of ripping up papers, the Associated Press (AP) reported Saturday. White House records workers and historians now fear they will have to do the same, with one person telling news website Fortune that they are "petrified" by the task they are facing. Boxes are stacked on West Executive Avenue before being loaded onto a truck at the White House on January 14. Last month, multiple historian groups sued the White House over fears that the Trump Administration will improperly maintain records.

Read the full story here:Trump administration staffers are getting snubbedFrom Claire Atkinson and Sean Czarnecki:Former White House staff can usually walk into top jobs after years of dealing with some of the toughest crises in government. But as businesses begin to shun Trump enterprises, the group leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is already getting the cold shoulder. The innovation-focused asset manager's $21.5 billion Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK), $6 billion ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ARKW), and $9.4 billion ARK Genomic Revolution ETF (ARKG) returned 153%, 157%, and 181%, respectively while all beating 99% of their category peers, according to Morningstar data.

Will Install a Trump Loyalist as Its General Counsel Vice President-elect Kamala Harris plans to resign from her Senate seat on Monday. The Justice Department, under pressure from Mr. Trump, has sued Mr. Bolton to recoup his profits from book. Representative Jamie Raskin, center, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a meeting of House impeachment managers on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. He also claimed, without further explanation, that Mr. Trump was “trying to heal the nation.” But even as Mr. Graham lobbied his Republican colleagues to vote against convicting Mr. Trump and offered a stream of flattery about the president’s success in office, he rejected the suggestion that Mr. Trump should pardon any members of the mob before leaving office. Without specifically mentioning Mr. Trump, Mr. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris drew an implicit contrast with his administration’s dismissive attitude toward expert opinion.

REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File Photo(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Saturday it will ban advertisements for weapon accessories and protective equipment in the United States with immediate effect until at least two days after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. “We already prohibit ads for weapons, ammunition and weapon enhancements like silencers. But we will now also prohibit ads for accessories,” Facebook said in a blog post. Buzzfeed reported this week that Facebook has been running ads for military equipment next to content promoting election misinformation and news about the violence on Jan. 6. A Facebook company spokesperson said all the pages identified in the Buzzfeed story had been removed, and that the company was working with intelligence and terrorism experts and law enforcement.

Michigan, Virginia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Washington were among more than a dozen states that activated their National Guards to strengthen security. Meanwhile, downtown Washington, D.C., was virtually empty, with streets near the Capitol closed and battalions of camouflaged National Guard soldiers taking up positions across the city center. It was signed by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. In Michigan, a fence was erected around the Capitol in Lansing, and troopers were mobilized from across the state to bolster security. A tearful Beeler later told the Washington Post he had been working security in Washington all week and pulled up to the checkpoint after getting lost.

Others told the Washington Post they wanted the protest organized in response to new state gun rules to be peaceful.

Real-estate investment opportunities can be tricky to identify in the current market, which is full of contradictions. Given the unpredictable climate, some locations are better suited for investment than others, according to longtime real-estate investor Cody Sperber. The self-described "clever investor," Sperber started out in real estate when he was in debt and has now closed hundreds of millions of dollars in deals utilizing strategies like house flipping, among others. Smart real-estate investors should always be on the lookout for new opportunities. One of them is longtime real-estate investor Cody Sperber, the self-described "clever investor" and founder of "for-purpose" development company Green Elephant Development.

The world is watching whether the US holds President Donald Trump accountable for the attack on the US Capitol. If Congress gives Trump a free pass, it will hurt America's standing on the world stage and embolden anti-democratic despots. After a violent pro-Trump mob overtook the seat of American democracy, leaders around the world are following closely what happens next. Will the United States Congress impeach and remove President Donald Trump? A failure to impeach Donald Trump would ultimately threaten global stability and our very own national security interests.

The transition official then implied that the timing of these decisions was suspicious.

Gregory Meeks, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, believes that the administration's latest foreign policy moves are "reckless" and "rushed." Meeks continued: "Pompeo's policy announcements this week are more of the same kind of disastrous, rushed missteps that have characterized this administration's catastrophic foreign policy from Day One."

You'll need a construction loan to build a home, which you may be able to roll into a regular mortgage when construction is complete. Building is often more expensive than buying, and while you may decide it's worth the cost, it's good to be prepared. There are some exceptions — for example, you can probably build a tiny house for less than what you'd spend buying one. If you can't afford to build a home entirely in cash, you'll need a construction loan. If you plan to build the home yourself rather than hire a contractor, you'll need an owner-builder construction loan.
