Former President Donald Trump granted extended Secret Service protections to his four adult children and their spouses before he left the White House, The Washington Post reported. The extended security detail could cost taxpayers millions of dollars, especially given the amount of traveling that the Trump children do related to the family company. Former President Donald Trump extended Secret Service protections for all of his adult children and their spouses, as well as three top administration officials, just before leaving the White House, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Trump isn't the first president to extend Secret Service protections to those who aren't automatically entitled to receive them. Just hours before, Trump and former First Lady Melania Trump left the White House aboard Marine One to Palm Beach, Florida.

Insider senior correspondent Dave Levinthal scored an official press pass to cover President Joe Biden's inauguration live at the US Capitol. Getting the final green light to attend the ceremony required a negative COVID-19 test and navigating plenty of tight security. It began with President Donald Trump still spewing lies and refusing to accept the outcome of a free and fair election he lost. As a reporter assigned to cover Biden's inauguration ceremony, the short and turbulent path to a literal front-row seat to history provided a poignant and personal metaphor — one both of fear and of hope. There would have also been noise, noise, noise, noise, because Washington, DC, is a city of noise.

Ex-President Donald Trump is not prepared for his Senate impeachment trial despite the fact that it could begin as early as next week. Giuliani had called for "trial by combat" at that rally, encouraging Trump supporters to pressure Congress to reverse Biden's electoral victory. With the impeachment article still in Pelosi's hands, the Senate trial will not begin until Monday at the earliest. Durbin added, "we've seen the videos" of the riot, many of which were posted online by Trump supporters who were part of the mob. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Tuesday said Trump was to blame for inciting the assault on the Capitol.

Two days after the Capitol Hill riots, Google pulled social media app Parler from its Android Play Store. Google said at the time that the app, which is popular with Trump supporters, lacked sufficient content moderation policies for removing harmful content – a rule that applies to all Play Store apps that contain "user-generated content." A Google spokesperson told Insider that the company had sent reminders to Parler of its content moderation policies "in recent months." Wernick said Google's previous comments about its moderation policies were "vague" and accused Google of allowing Twitter to host harmful content. But Google says its policies for Parler were not related to the specific content, but the lack of moderation to remove it.

Among them are his former chief of staff and lawyers who defended him in his first impeachment trial. Every outgoing president picks representatives — usually lawyers — to handle requests for them to disclose their White House records. Access to Trump's White House documents could also become relevant in any future legal proceedings against the former president. Former White House Pat Cipollone is among the ex-Trump aides representing him on his presidential papers. Trump also named three lawyers who worked for him as deputy White House counsels: Patrick Philbin, Scott Gast, and Michael Purpura.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Outgoing U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen attended the inauguration of new President Joe Biden on Wednesday after skipping both a farewell ceremony for Donald Trump and the usual protocol of welcoming his successor to his home at the Naval Observatory. Pence was a loyal lieutenant throughout Trump’s four-year term. Pence spoke with Harris last Thursday, marking the highest-level contact between the outgoing and incoming administrations. Pence also met with National Guard troops guarding the Capitol, vowing to ensure a safe transition of power. But on Sunday, in his final speech as vice president, Pence praised the resilience of the American people, adding, “I have faith that the day will come where we put these challenging times behind us.”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Kamala Harris made history on Wednesday when she was sworn in as Joe Biden’s vice president, becoming the first woman, the first Black American and the first Asian American to hold the second highest U.S. office. Kamala Harris is sworn in as U.S. Vice President during the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., January 20, 2021. The U.S. vice president serves as Senate president, casting any tie-breaking votes in the 100-member chamber. “Joe and I were raised in a very similar way,” Harris said of Biden at her October debate against then-Vice President Mike Pence. As the Senate’s only Black woman, Harris emerged as a leading voice on racial justice and police reform after Minneapolis police killed African-American man George Floyd in May.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The president of the EU executive said on Wednesday she looked forward to having a friend in the White House who could work with Europe on fighting climate change, quashing the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuilding multilateralism. She said a joint trade and technical council between the United States and the 27-nation EU should consider such matters. Relations between the EU and the United States were shaky during the Trump administration, with tensions in particular over trade. Von der Leyen said the EU and Biden knew and liked each other, and she was hopeful they could achieve much together. Von der Leyen, the first female president of the European Commission, said she welcomed the inauguration of Kamala Harris as the first woman to become vice-president of the United States.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump promoted his time in office Wednesday morning in a send-off speech to supporters at Joint Base Andrews as he left Washington in his final hours in office. He thanked his family, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, first lady Melania Trump, and Vice President Mike Pence, and hinted at his own political future. "We will be back in some form," he said,The outgoing president typically departs shortly after the incoming president is sworn in, on a special air mission government jet. There were a number of notable absences at the send-off: Pence did not attend, along with several former senior aides who were invited. His last public event before Wednesday’s departure from the White House was a week ago, when he went to the U.S.-Mexico border to tout his border wall construction.

President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn-in as the 46th president of the United States Wednesday at noon, amid a devastating global pandemic and the threat of possible domestic terrorism. President Donald Trump won't be in attendance, making him the first president to skip his successor's inauguration in more than 150 years. The inaugural theme is "America United," a theme Biden campaigned on and which he is expected to focus on in his speech. As is tradition, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will administer the oath of office to Biden just after the clock strikes 12. Biden will take the oath with his hand on top of his 127-year-old, 5-inch-thick family Bible, which will be held by his wife, Jill Biden.

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.

Top Republicans, including Vice President Mike Pence and the party’s congressional leaders, skipped Trump’s send-off and attended Biden’s inauguration instead.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump salutes as he boards Air Force One at after visiting the U.S.-Mexico border wall, in Harlingen, Texas, U.S., January 12, 2021. Trump has a long way to go to rebuild an image left in tatters by his stormy presidency, particularly the final months. Even after Trump leaves office, the Senate is still to hold a trial on the impeachment charge brought by the Democratic-led House of Representatives that he incited an insurrection. Trump must also decide how to stay involved in politics as he has said he will do. “I would predict in the not-too-distant future that American political candidates will be more motivated to show that they are unlike Trump than candidates after 1974 were to show that they were unlike (Richard) Nixon,” said presidential historian Michael Beschloss.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump left the White House and Washington for a final time as commander-in-chief on Wednesday after a tumultuous presidency stained by two impeachments, deep political divisions, and a pandemic that caused 400,000 U.S. deaths. U.S. President Donald Trump speaks next to first lady Melania Trump as he departs from the Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, U.S., January 20, 2021. We will be back in some form,” Trump told supporters before boarding Air Force One for a flight to Florida. Trump left a note for his successor, Democrat Joe Biden, a spokesman confirmed. Trump has declined to mention Biden’s name even as he wished the incoming administration luck on his way out of office.

We will be back in some form,” Trump told supporters before boarding Air Force One for the flight to Florida. Air Force One later flew low to give Trump an aerial view of his post-presidential home at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach. Before leaving the White House, Trump left a note for his successor, Democrat Joe Biden, a spokesman said, following one small bit of traditional protocol related to the peaceful transfer of power that Trump had otherwise eschewed. Trump has declined to mention Biden’s name even as he wished the incoming administration luck on his way out of office. The Washington that Trump left behind was guarded by 25,000 National Guard troops, while the National Mall, traditionally thronged with spectators on Inauguration Day, was closed to the public because of threats of further violence.
