Biden's picks for secretary of state, Antony Blinken, and secretary of defense, Lloyd Austin, had afternoon hearings. Mayorkas, testifying before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, vowed to turn the DHS' attention toward white supremacist and extremist threats. Biden and the incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had urged Republicans to confirm his national security picks Wednesday, as has been done for past administrations but is something a single senator can temporarily block. Blinken, testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made clear Trump's "America First" agenda would be a thing of the past.

Tehran’s move, announced on the last full day of the Trump administration, allows the seizure of any assets in Iran of sanctioned individuals. Among officials sanctioned by Iran were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; ex-Defense Secretary Mark Esper; Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the Foreign ministry said in a statement carried by state media. The officials were blacklisted “for their role in terrorist and anti-human rights activities against Iran and its citizens”, Foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said.

FILE PHOTO: President-elect Joe Biden's nominee to be Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines speaks at his transition headquarters in the Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 24, 2020. REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Avril Haines, a former White House and CIA official whom President-elect Joe Biden chose for the top U.S. intelligence job, will tell Congress on Tuesday that she will continue tough U.S. scrutiny of China and press spy agencies to help resolve the COVID-19 crisis, a Biden transition official said. In testimony before a Senate Intelligence Committee confirmation hearing, Haines, Biden’s nominee for Director of National Intelligence, will declare that U.S. agencies must continue to collect intelligence to “support long-term bipartisan efforts to out-compete China — gaining and sharing insight into China’s intentions and capabilities, while also supporting more immediate efforts to counter Beijing’s unfair, illegal, aggressive and coercive actions, as well as its human rights violations,” the transition official said. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Haines also will tell senators that one of her missions would be to ensure that spy agencies’ “unique capabilities” are used to counter the worldwide COVID-19 crisis, “while also addressing the long-term challenge of future biological crises ... positioning us to detect future outbreaks before they become pandemics.”She is also going to say that the United States must strengthen cybersecurity, protect critical American infrastructure and use technology to improve intelligence, the official familiar with her testimony said. Haines will also indirectly distance Biden’s incoming administration from some intelligence agency pronouncements by the outgoing Trump administration, telling senators, “To safeguard the integrity of our Intelligence Community, the DNI must insist, that, when it comes to intelligence, there is simply no place for politics - ever.”A Democratic congressional official said that Haines’ confirmation process was expected to move rapidly, though some Democratic activists have raised questions about her role helping to manage the CIA’s response to investigations into the agency’s use of harsh interrogation techniques.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States should take an “aggressive stance” toward the threat posed by the aggressive and assertive China that it faces today, Avril Haines, President-elect Joe Biden’s choice for the top U.S. intelligence job, said on Tuesday. Nominee for Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines appears before the Senate Intelligence Committee during a confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., January 19, 2021. Pressed by both Republican and Democratic senators on the importance of the Chinese intelligence threat, Haines said she would make it a priority to devote more resources to China. “Our approach to China has to evolve and essentially meet the reality of the particularly assertive and aggressive China that we see today,” she said. In a possible effort to neutralize that issue, Haines told the committee she would not endorse use of harsh interrogation techniques and would not permit their use.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday to consider the nomination of Avril Haines, who was a national security official during the Obama administration, to become director of national intelligence. She would oversee 18 intelligence agencies, including the CIA and the National Security Agency. Among other things, the director of national intelligence oversees the presidential intelligence briefing process. But the director does not run covert operations ordered by the president — the CIA director retains that power. "To safeguard the integrity of our Intelligence Community, the DNI must insist that, when it comes to intelligence, there is simply no place for politics — ever," she will say.

Chase saw strong engagement with digital features in Q4 2020. The bank should prioritize engagement among existing users as its new mobile user growth rate dwindles. Although the coronavirus pandemic set the stage for an influx of first-time mobile banking users, Chase's user growth has remained flat or ticked down in the past year. This suggests that the bank is approaching a saturation point at which all clients who are willing to try mobile banking will have done so. That will only continue with another round of stimulus checks likely on the way.
