WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives could as early as Friday send an impeachment charge accusing former President Donald Trump of inciting insurrection to the Senate, which must decide his fate and whether to block him from seeking office again. A source familiar with the planning told Reuters the House could transmit the article of impeachment it approved last week as early as Friday and No. In a House vote last week, the Republican Trump became the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice. Democrats, who hold a House majority, narrowly took control of the Senate on Wednesday, but at least two-thirds of the 100-member body are required to convict Trump. Slideshow ( 3 images )Under Senate rules, the trial would start a day after the House delivered the charge.

Biden has pitched a progressive agenda that includes trillions of dollars in new investments and an overhaul of the country's health care and immigration systems. "Ultimately, if Mitch McConnell decides to be an obstructionist, that's on him, not Joe Biden," Pfeiffer said. Biden takes office with high approval ratings for his post-election conduct and substantial political capital to steer his party. Democrats said by a 25-point margin that Biden should work with Republicans to accomplish things, even if it means disappointing some of his voters. Some Republicans are calling on Biden and Democrats, in the name of unity, to dismiss the House-approved article of impeachment charging Trump with inciting insurrection.

Even as they pledged to keep open minds, they criticized Mr. Biden’s decision on Wednesday to re-enter the Paris climate agreement and his proposal to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. “Several big steps in the wrong direction,” Mr. McConnell warned on the Senate floor. But Mr. McConnell has made his signoff contingent on a promise by Mr. Schumer not to eliminate the filibuster, which effectively imposes a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation. Mr. McConnell himself resisted pressure to do so when he was majority leader during Mr. Trump’s tenure, and has warned Democrats a rule change will backfire. Progressives favor getting rid of the filibuster to allow them to bypass Republicans altogether and win crucial pieces of Mr. Biden’s agenda.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country beset by deep political divides and battered by a raging coronavirus pandemic. The ceremony will unfold in front of a heavily fortified U.S. Capitol, where a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building two weeks ago, enraged by his false claims that November’s election was stolen with millions of fraudulent votes. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time. It will require approval from a deeply divided Congress, where Democrats will hold slim advantages in both the House and Senate. The trial could serve as an early test of Biden’s promise to foster a renewed sense of bipartisanship in Washington.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country beset by deep political divides and battered by a raging coronavirus pandemic. U.S. President-elect Joe Biden speaks during an event at Major Joseph R. "Beau" Biden III National Guard/Reserve Center at New Castle County Airport in New Castle, Delaware, U.S. January 19, 2021. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time. His top priority is a $1.9 trillion plan that would enhance jobless benefits and provide direct cash payments to households. The trial could serve as an early test of Biden’s promise to foster a renewed sense of bipartisanship in Washington.

President Donald Trump has left the White House for the final time. President Donald Trump boarded Marine One this morning for one last chopper ride off of the White House South Lawn. Trump waved goodbye from the steps of the helicopter before heading over to Joint Base Andrews for his farewell address. After delivering unscripted remarks on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews, Trump boarded Air Force One with his family and headed off to Florida. Before leaving the White House for the last time, Trump issued 73 pardons and 70 commutations in a wave of clemency grants.

"I will be back in some form," President Donald Trump pledged as he departed Joint Base Andrews for Palm Beach on his last Air Force One ride. Instead, in recent weeks, Trump has shared weird, listless, and overly-long web video statements — too unfocused to shift attention and change the conversation. Trump is very unpopular, and Republicans will call a continued focus on him "divisive" because it will divide the Republican party. And while Trump could re-center himself by running for president again, I don't think he will. But even if he avoids criminal trouble, Trump is already mightily resisting the label that he is a loser.
