The other calls for "empowering federal workers and contractors," he added. The White House said up to 8 million people did not receive the first $1,200 stimulus check passed in March. He will call on agencies to review which federal workers make fewer than $15 per hour. Both pandemic relief measures would have expired at the end of the month. Biden has moved to boost the economy through executive orders while he tries to get the $1.9 trillion aid package passed by Congress.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) displays a signed an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump at the U.S. Capitol on January 13, 2021 in Washington, DC. The House will deliver the impeachment article against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday. While Trump has already left the White House, the Senate can vote to bar him from holding office again if it chooses to convict him. Speaking after Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., expressed concerns that Trump would not have enough time to mount a defense. The first trial Trump faced last year for charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress lasted about three weeks.

Dissent from either party carries weight for Biden, who entered the White House on Wednesday with a razor-thin majority in Congress. The party has not made final decisions on what parts of Biden's plan it will include in legislation, though funds for vaccine distribution are a priority. Deese cited the jobless claims data in pushing for Biden's relief plan on Thursday, saying the economy is "moving in the wrong direction." Biden's plan faces obstacles in the Senate. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who will soon take over the Senate Budget Committee, has urged Democrats to use reconciliation to pass economic relief.

Democrats are expected take control of the Senate on Wednesday when three new members of the party are sworn in. Democratic Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff from Georgia and appointee Alex Padilla from California are set to take office in the afternoon, bringing the Senate party split to 50-50. Though Chuck Schumer and Democrats will decide what the Senate pursues, they will face a challenge in finding Republican support to pass most legislation. Some Democrats have called to get rid of the tool to allow bills to pass with a simple majority vote. Biden hopes the Senate can spend part of its time on the impeachment trial while still confirming executive branch nominees.

Preparing for the first evenly split Senate in 20 years and the only impeachment trial for an ex-president in U.S. history, Senate leaders Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell plan to discuss ground rules for the chamber on Tuesday. Schumer, D-N.Y., and the McConnell, R-Ky., have to decide how to handle an unprecedented few weeks for the Senate. The chamber needs to set rules for an impeachment trial of outgoing President Donald Trump, which Democrats aim to balance with the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden's Cabinet and passage of a coronavirus relief bill. In the last evenly split Senate in 2001, each party had the same number of seats on committees. If a committee was deadlocked on a measure, the majority leader had the power to bring it to a full Senate vote.

Kevin Lamarque | ReutersPresident-elect Joe Biden faces a range of pitfalls in trying to push his coronavirus relief plan through Congress. Democrats will hold a slim majority in the House and could need Republican support to pass a bill. While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and many in his party oppose state and local government relief, multiple Senate Republicans have joined Democrats in supporting the aid. Democrats will gain a narrow Senate majority this month when Senators-elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff from Georgia are sworn in. Biden aims to pass his relief plan with bipartisan support, a person familiar with the transition team's thinking confirmed to CNBC.

Seven days before the president leaves office, the House plans to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week. President Donald Trump , a man hyperaware of his achievements and place in history, will add a first to his record on Wednesday. The House will send the article across the Capitol immediately, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told NBC News on Wednesday. The Capitol insurrection made more GOP lawmakers willing to boot their party's president from office. At least five House Republicans will vote to impeach Trump on Wednesday.

A second impeachment trial for President Donald Trump will likely drag into President-elect Joe Biden's term as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will not bring the upper chamber back earlier than Tuesday. Schumer had urged his GOP counterpart to use emergency powers to swiftly hold a trial and vote on whether to convict Trump and remove him from office. The Senate trial after the House first impeached Trump took nearly three weeks, from mid-January until early February of last year. However, a Senate vote to convict Trump would prevent him from becoming president again in 2025. However, he has not commented on whether he would vote to convict Trump if impeachment came to the Senate.

The House will push ahead Tuesday with efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office for inciting last week's deadly attack on the Capitol. On Wednesday, the House plans to decide whether to make Trump the first president ever impeached twice. The vice president has so far resisted calls to remove Trump from office. Democrats introduced competing versions of impeachment articles on Monday. Some Democrats have also questioned whether the House should send articles to the Senate immediately after it impeaches Trump.

None of this would have happened without the President," the Republican conference chair said. In a statement, Cheney said Trump "summoned this mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack." Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranking House Republican, said Tuesday she will vote to impeach President Donald Trump , as at least three GOP lawmakers will move to charge the president from their own party with high crimes and misdemeanors. The House plans to vote Wednesday on whether to charge Trump with high crimes and misdemeanors. The facts establish that he is unfit to remain in office a single day longer and warrant the immediate impeachment of President Trump."

U.S. stock index futures were modestly higher in overnight trading on Tuesday, after a session that saw stocks alternate between gains and losses. Stocks closed little changed on Tuesday as traders digested higher rates, possible additional stimulus measures and political turmoil. Rising rates could hurt growth stocks, however, and a number of tech heavyweights including Facebook and Apple declined during Tuesday's session. Expectations for additional fiscal stimulus is one of the reasons behind the steady move higher in yields. Taken together, Schutte said this sets the stage for above-average economic growth, and he sees stocks climbing to new highs.

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

It puts them just shy of the 218-vote majority needed to impeach Trump in the House, though the number could end up lower due to vacancies and absences. The House will likely vote to impeach Trump by later this week, only a few days before President-elect Joe Biden will take office one week from Wednesday. Trump exhorted his supporters outside the White House to march on the Capitol shortly before the Capitol siege and repeated lies that widespread fraud cost him the November election. The White House and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., have argued impeachment would divide the country. If all Democrats vote to convict Trump, 17 Republicans would have to join them to meet the needed two-thirds threshold.

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin signaled Friday he could oppose $2,000 direct payments, jeopardizing one of his party's priorities for when it takes unified control of the White House and Congress. The nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation previously said increasing the payments in the aid law passed last month to $2,000 from $600 would cost $463 billion. His stance raises doubts about what kind of direct deposit plan could get through the Senate once Democrats hold a razor-thin majority. Biden, Warnock and Ossoff said the election of Democrats in Georgia would mean the Senate can pass $2,000 checks. At least one Republican — Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri — backed $2,000 checks last month as President Donald Trump pushed for them.

President Donald Trump said early Thursday that he was willing to allow an "orderly transition" of power, just minutes after Congress formally confirmed the election of Joe Biden as president. "Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. Overnight, Congress reconvened and formally confirmed the election of Biden.

"What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president. This president should not hold office one day longer," the New York Democrat said in a statement. "The quickest and most effective way - it can be done today - to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment," he continued. "If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president."
