Last week, there was a domestic threat at the door of the Capitol and he did nothing to stop it. He continued: “A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence we witnessed in our nation’s capital."

SEE NEW POSTSMcCarthy says Trump 'bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack' House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said in remarks on the House floor that Trump is to blame for last Wednesday's attack on the Capitol — but he shouldn't be impeached for it. "The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote. McCarthy, however, said he opposes impeaching Trump, suggesting the censure of the president and a bipartisan commission to investigate the events leading up to the riot might be the better options.

Democratic U.S. presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign stop in Atlanta, Georgia, October 27, 2020. Following November's election, the initial makeup of the Senate is 50 Republicans, 46 Democrats and two independents who caucus with the Democrats. With 51 votes in the Senate, Biden could realistically hope to enact some of his most sweeping (and expensive) domestic policy proposals, including a massive green jobs program. The Biden campaign has not yet released the details of Tuesday's event, but during the final weeks of the presidential campaign Biden held drive-in rallies which attracted large crowds and kept people at a safe distance from one another. And you say, 'Well, we're not going to [vote],'" Trump said.

We all need uplift this terrible year, so here’s inspiring news about some young heroes and the good they’ve achieved on a wrenching topic. Young men and women who had been exploited by Pornhub as children shared their stories, their documentation and their mortification in hopes that this might prevent other children from being abused. Pornhub on Tuesday announced huge moves that could — if thoroughly put into effect — significantly curb future exploitation. I don’t trust Pornhub a bit, so officials will need to monitor this sector in a way they haven’t before. Four senators, Josh Hawley, Maggie Hassan, Joni Ernst and Thom Tillis, on Wednesday introduced bipartisan legislation to make it easier for rape victims to sue porn companies that profit from videos of their assaults.

President-elect Joe Biden's nominee for budget chief, Neera Tanden, has deleted tweets critical of Republican senators who are likely going to vote on her appointment, The Daily Beast reported. Since November 1, 2020, Tanden has deleted tweets critical of GOP senators like Mitch McConnell, Joni Ernst, and Susan Collins. The Senate is likely going to be controlled by the Republican Party under the Biden administration, and Tanden may need GOP senators' votes to assume the OMB role. The Senate was controlled by the Republican Party during President Donald Trump's administration, and is likely to remain that way during the Biden presidency. If Tanden is voted in as budget chief, she will be the first woman of color to hold the office.

(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s election campaign issued a statement on Sunday distancing itself from Sidney Powell, a lawyer who made baseless allegations of voter fraud at a news conference on Thursday. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in the statement. “Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives,” Trump said in the tweet. Tucker Carlson, an influential Fox News host, on Thursday criticized Powell for a lack of evidence to support her claims. Democrats and some Republicans have accused Trump of trying to undermine faith in the American electoral system and delegitimize Biden’s victory by promoting false claims of widespread voter fraud.

The two lawmakers will listen to what the president, who requested the meeting, has to say, the source said. Shirkey told a Michigan news outlet earlier this week that the legislature would not appoint a second slate of electors. Those states were the pillars of Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, but Biden prevailed in all three by even larger margins than Trump did four years ago. Nationally, Biden won nearly 6 million more votes than Trump, a difference of 3.8 percentage points. But the outcome of the election is determined in the Electoral College, where each state’s electoral votes, based largely on population, are typically awarded to the winner of a state’s popular vote.

President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday tore into President Donald Trump for refusing to concede the election and formally commit to a peaceful transfer of power, while also blasting the General Services Administration's delay of the presidential transition.

Biden has repeatedly said that the GSA’s delay is seriously hindering his eventual administration's ability to hit the ground running in fighting the pandemic.

In the hours after Mr. Carlson’s monologue, word of which spread quickly across social media, Mr. Trump’s supporters not only went after Mr. Carlson but also Fox News. One lawyer who is assisting the Trump campaign in its efforts, Lin Wood, went unquestioned this week on Mr. Levin’s show when he made the fantastical claim that Mr. Trump had won the election with 70 percent of the vote. A story that OANN broadcast on Friday afternoon falsely declared, “The state of Michigan is back in play,” giving credence to Mr. Trump’s extraordinary but almost certainly unsuccessful efforts to delay certification of the vote in Detroit. Republican officials have remained mostly measured and muted in their response, even after the conspiratorial and unsubstantiated claims floated by Ms. Powell, Rudolph W. Giuliani and other members of Mr. Trump’s legal team at a news conference on Thursday. Republicans like Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, who said that Ms. Powell’s accusations were “absolutely outrageous,” were the exception.

This hearing took a more measured tone than the last in the Commerce Committee , where several Democrats noted their opposition to the hearing itself, as it was timed right before the election. Still, at Tuesday's hearing, the senators' questions continued to reflect a stark division in their viewpoints on content moderation. Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey wrapped up their second Senate testimony in a month mostly unscathed and with little indication of imminent changes for their businesses. Republican lawmakers on the committee repeatedly hammered the CEOs with questions about censorship and potential bias in their algorithms and content moderation decisions.

In Ohio, they gave Trump an edge of 0.8 percentage points. In Florida, the FiveThirtyEight forecast had Biden beating Trump by 2.5 percentage points. In Wisconsin, they gave Biden an 8.4 point lead. Biden won it by less than a point. (Not to belabor a theme here, Gail, but FiveThirtyEight gave Gideon a 59 percent chance of winning.)

Democratic Senator Gary Peters defeated Republican John James in Michigan, according to projections from television networks and Edison Research. One Senate contest in Georgia was headed for a Jan. 5 runoff between Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock. McConnell said a second Senate race on the Georgia ballot, between Republican Senator David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff, could face the same fate. But those victories were cut to a net gain of one by Democratic Senator Doug Jones’s loss in Alabama. Republican Senator Dan Sullivan of Alaska held a sizable lead with half of the vote counted.

“She’s now part of Iowa’s politics for the foreseeable future,” said Christopher W. Larimer, a professor of political science at the University of Northern Iowa. “The first re-election bid is always the toughest. So Ms. Ernst reinvented herself. During her first Senate campaign in 2014, Ms. Ernst ran an ad in which she appeared at a gun range, shooting at a target as a narrator said she would “unload” on Obamacare. She also apologized repeatedly for her making a comment in which she embraced a debunked theory questioning the coronavirus death toll.

ET 2020 Election Live Updates: Polls Show Biden Ahead in Pennsylvania and 3 Other Key States Polling conducted by The New York Times and Siena College also shows Biden ahead in Wisconsin, Florida and Arizona. Among eligible Pennsylvania voters who did not turn out in 2016, Mr. Biden is leading Mr. Trump by 12 points. And on Monday, in what is a clear attempt to needle Mr. Biden, he will head to Scranton, Mr. Biden’s hometown. Recent surveys of Pennsylvania indicate the race there is close: An average of polls shows Mr. Biden with a six-point lead. Of course, the Trump campaign has been doing all it can to hinder Mr. Biden from doing just that.

He’d worked nearly two years developing techniques to try to manage Mr. Trump, from colorful PowerPoint slides to several kinds of flattery. The next day, he suited up, put on his cherished, navy blue NATO tie, with the four-pointed symbol of the alliance from which Mr. Trump had threatened to withdraw, and entered the Oval Office. Down the hall, the very next day, Mr. Kelly was almost done cleaning out his office. He and Mr. Trump had been at each other every day for months. And, if someone wasn’t there to challenge Mr. Trump, might they have risen to action?
