RIYADH (Reuters) - A Saudi appeals court has nearly halved a six-year jail sentence handed to a U.S.-Saudi physician whose case has been closely followed by Washington and suspended the rest of his term, court documents showed, meaning he will not have to serve any more time in prison. The appeals court’s verdict cut his jail sentence to 3.2 years and reduced the travel ban to 38 months, according to the documents dated Jan. 14 and seen by Reuters. Fitaihi will not have to serve any more jail time as the appeals court took into account time served and suspended the remainder, the documents showed. The appeals court upheld the conviction on those charges which were listed in the documents. Last month, a Saudi court sentenced prominent women’s rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul to nearly six years in prison.

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.”

REUTERS/Cheriss MayWASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s goal of delivering 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine within the first 100 days of his presidency “is absolutely a doable thing,” Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Sunday. Fauci, speaking on NBC’s “Meet The Press”, said two new vaccines under development by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson could “very soon” be presented to U.S. regulators for approval, which would increase the pace of vaccinations. About 10.6 million Americans have so far been vaccinated, about half as many as President Donald Trump’s administration hoped would have received injections by the end of 2020. Biden has said ramping up the pace of vaccinations will be one of his top priorities when he takes office on Wednesday. “One thing that’s clear is that the issue of getting 100 million doses in the first 100 days is absolutely a doable thing,” Fauci said.

VADO HONDO, Guatemala (Reuters) - Guatemalan security forces used sticks to beat back a migrant caravan early on Sunday after thousands of people set off from Honduras for the United States this week, just as President-elect Joe Biden prepares to enter the White House. However, around 3,000 Guatemalan security officials mustered in the village of Vado Hondo in eastern Guatemala to hold up the caravan, leading to the clashes on Sunday morning. Video footage shared by the Guatemalan government showed hundreds of migrants pressing into a wall of security forces, which used sticks to repel the surge of people. Between Friday and Saturday, Guatemala had sent back almost 1,000 migrants entering from Honduras, the Guatemalan government said, as the caravan tried to advance towards Mexico. Mexican and Central American authorities have coordinated security and public health measures in a bid to deter mass movement of people across the region.

WASHINGTON — Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the nation’s foremost public health experts, said Sunday that the U.S. is “weeks away, not months away” from considering the approval of new coronavirus vaccines. But we're weeks away, not months away, for sure." While both those approved vaccines, as well as the one being developed by AstraZeneca, require two shots spaced out weeks apart, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine needs only one. The news comes as the incoming Biden administration continues to double down on its goal of 100 million coronavirus vaccinations in the first 100 days after Biden takes office. "One, double down on the public health measures we’ve been talking about all the time.

Trump became the first U.S. president to be impeached twice last week for his role in inciting a violent mob of his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. “The country needs to find a way to heal itself and the new president needs the opportunity to lead and heal us — both literally and spiritually,” Comey said. “We’ll never know, but a Nixon prosecution might have prolonged — rather than solved — the country’s pain,” he added. He said he was "sickened" by the attack on the Capitol and the failure to defend the building. “It mystifies and angers me,” Comey said, adding: “It will be important for our country to understand that failure."

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."

If it went ahead, the federal execution would be the 13th and final one scheduled under U.S. President Donald Trump. Using their laptops and phones, the defense team jousted with federal lawyers, filing opposing briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court. Haynes was sentenced to life in prison, Higgs to death. Higgs’ sister wept there while talking to his spiritual adviser. It was about 10 minutes past Higgs’ scheduled execution time of 6 p.m. “It’s a slippery slope, when you get to the 13th execution in a spate of 13,” he said.

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.

Gunmen kill two female Supreme Court judges in Afghanistan: police

KABUL (Reuters) - Unidentified gunmen killed two female judges from Afghanistan’s Supreme Court on Sunday morning, police said, adding to a wave of assassinations in Kabul and other cities while government and Taliban representatives have been holding peace talks in Qatar. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani issued a statement condemning attacks on civilians by the Taliban and other militant groups. Ghani said “terror, horror and crime” was not a solution to Afghanistan’s problem and beseeched the Taliban to accept “a permanent ceasefire”. Government officials, journalists, and activists have been targeted in recent months, stoking fear particularly in the capital Kabul. Rising violence has complicated U.S.-brokered peace talks taking place in Doha as Washington withdraws troops.

Before the election, more than 80 percent of likely voters were somewhat or very concerned about election-related violence, according to a UMass Poll. It remains to be seen whether we will remember that surreal day as the end of an ugly episode in our history or an early skirmish in a prolonged period of political violence. As our evidence of partisan dehumanization has accumulated, we have grown increasingly concerned about its implications for our democracy and society. We found that both types of messages, when coming from Biden, significantly reduced endorsements of partisan dehumanization and violence, even among Republicans. Every American has the power to calm their fellow citizens, simply by speaking out against dehumanization and violence.

In at least 12 states right now,efforts are afoot that include actually criminalizing health care for transgender youth (as in, send doctors to prison for following medical treatment protocols to help trans youth) as well as banning all transgender young people from participating in age-appropriate athletic programs. These bills are just another opportunity to repeat (and, they hope, enact into law) myths about trans women and girls. Last year, Idaho, in fact, passed a wholesale ban on transgender women and girls participating in women’s sports. Meanwhile, Alabama, Missouri, Texas, Mississippi, Montana, Indiana, New Hampshire and Utah — so far — have also introduced bills that would criminalize or otherwise ban gender-affirming care for transgender youth. Given this, these anti-science bills cannot be understood as motivated by concerns about children or their ability to consent to medical treatment.

The United States has for years complained that the WTO Appellate Body makes unjustified new trade rules in its decisions and has blocked the appointment of new judges to stop this, rendering the body inoperable.

Northwell, New York’s largest healthcare provider, offers appointments only as it gets more vaccine, and only after allocating doses to people scheduled for their second shots, Kemp said. Although the supply flow has been sporadic, Northwell expects to offer appointments in the coming week, he added. Besides New York, signs of vaccine supply strains appeared in Vermont, Michigan, South Carolina, New Jersey and Oregon. Adding to the inter-governmental tension was a squabble in which several governors accused the Trump administration on Friday of deceptively pledging to distribute millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses from a stockpile that the U.S. health secretary has since acknowledged does not exist. Since the first vaccine was administered in the United States in mid-December, nearly 12.3 million doses have been given, out of 31.2 million doses distributed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Manchin said the 14th Amendment should be applied after Cruz and Hawley pushed forth with efforts to dispute Electoral College votes last week. Sen. Joe Manchin said the Senate should consider using the 14th Amendment to remove Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, two Republicans who objected to the Electoral College vote last week. "That should be a consideration," Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, said when asked if the 14th Amendment should be triggered during an interview with PBS's "Firing Line." The 14th Amendment says that no lawmaker holding office "shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
