Palm Beach County in Florida this week began seeking a way to terminate a contract with President Donald Trump's prized International Golf Club. The county attorney's office confirmed to NBC News on Friday that an official asked if Palm Beach has ways to cancel its lease with the president's beloved, West Palm Beach course. The Palm Beach Post, which first reported that the county was examining the lease, added that Trump pays $88,338 per month in rent for the property. Trump frequents his titular International Golf Club, located in unincorporated West Palm Beach and owned by the county, during his visits to Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach estate. A lawyer for Trump's golf course added to the Post that he had spoken with Falcon and concluded that there is "no basis for canceling the lease."

(Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden has picked former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison to head the Democratic National Committee, Biden’s office said in a statement on Thursday. Harrison was a successful fundraiser as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina, amassing a stunning $109 million war chest for his 2020 campaign before ultimately losing his bid to unseat Republican Senator Lindsey Graham. The current DNC chairman, Tom Perez, has said he would not seek another term. Harrison, an associate chairman for the DNC, formerly worked for U.S. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina, whose early backing of Biden helped him secure the party’s presidential nomination last year. Biden ultimately selected another senator, Kamala Harris, to join him on the ticket.

Aides talked President Trump out of showing up in person to defend himself at Wednesday's impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, reported The New York Times. Aides are said to have convinced the president it would be a bad idea to offer a defense during Wednesday's vote. In Wednesday's vote, Trump was impeached by 232-197 on a single charge of "incitement of insurrection" at last Wednesday's riot at the US Capitol. Having been kicked off Twitter after the attack on the Capitol, Trump is without his favored platform to intervene and attempt to shape events. "Violence and vandalism have no place in our country... No true supporter of mine would ever endorse political violence," Trump said.

Shortly after the House of Representatives impeached President Trump and charged him with “incitement of insurrection” on Wednesday, the Queens Daily Eagle, an outlet that covers the borough where Mr. Trump was born and raised, offered its readers a decidedly local spin on the news: “Queens man impeached — again.”The opening paragraph continued in the same vein. “A Queens-born real estate developer made history Wednesday when he became the first U.S. president ever impeached twice by the House of Representatives,” it read. The Queens Daily Eagle had gone with local-angle treatment twice before in its coverage of major Trump news. “Queens man impeached” was the headline for its Dec. 19, 2019, article on the first impeachment. On Nov. 7, 2020, the paper did a callback — “Queens man evicted” — to note Mr. Trump’s election loss.

Social media users are sharing a clip from the House of Representatives on Jan. 11, claiming it proves Nancy Pelosi is no longer the Speaker. This claim is missing context: the clip shows the designation of a “Speaker pro tempore,” a temporary Speaker, which is common practice. U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) speaks to reporters a day after supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump occupied the Capitol, during a news conference in Washington, U.S., January 7, 2021. Signed Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives.” Captions on the posts read, “Pelosi is no longer the speaker of the House – 1/11/21” or “Jan 11, 2021 Nancy Pelosi is No Longer Speaker of the House.”This is a real clip from a House Pro Forma session on Jan. 11, as seen in this C-SPAN video from the 5 minute 10 second mark here . Nancy Pelosi did designate Debbie Dingell as speaker pro tempore on Jan. 11, however this is a commonly used temporary appointment and does not involve Pelosi giving up her title.

Fed sees modest growth but says optimism tempered by virus resurgence

“Although the prospect of COVID-19 vaccines has bolstered business optimism for 2021 growth, this has been tempered by concern over the recent virus resurgence and the implications for near-term business conditions,” the Fed noted in the report. While manufacturing activity continued to recover in almost all Fed districts, reports on consumer spending were mixed. A $900 billion relief package passed in late December should help to backstop the economy until the spring. Fed officials have reiterated their promise to keep short-term interest rates low and to maintain the central bank’s asset purchases until the economy is on more stable footing. The Beige Book was prepared at the San Francisco Fed based on information collected on or before Jan. 4, 2021.

The S&P added to gains later in the afternoon right after the Federal Reserve released its “Beige Book” report. While defensive sectors such as utilities and real estate were leading percentage gains among the 11 major S&P sectors, the biggest losers were the more economically sensitive cyclical sectors such as materials and industrials.

If the Democratic-led House approves it, Trump would become the first president impeached twice. Slideshow ( 6 images )Hoyer told reporters he expected between 10 and 20 House Republicans to vote for impeachment. As the House prepared for the impeachment vote, there were signs Trump’s hold on the Republican Party was beginning to ebb. At least five House Republicans, including Liz Cheney, a member of her party’s leadership team, said they would vote for his second impeachment - a prospect no president before Trump has faced. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again.

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera said he supports the impeachment of President Donald Trump, slamming him for having "unleashed a mob." Rivera tweeted in reference to Trump encouraging supporters to march on the US Capitol, which soon evolved into a riot that left five people died. Pondering Trump's mindset, Rivera tweeted that losing the election "made him crazy or revealed a dysfunction I had refused to see." Rivera is a longtime Trump friend, but called on the president to concede a few days after the election was called for Joe Biden. Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera said he supports President Donald Trump's impeachment, and admitted that he may have "refused to see" earlier signs of Trump's unfitness to govern.

One of us is a Republican who proudly served in the Reagan administration and voted for Donald Trump in 2016; the other is a Democrat who worked for President Barack Obama and served as a special counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during the first Trump impeachment and trial. We have considerable political differences. But we firmly share a view that should transcend partisan politics: President Trump must be impeached again and tried as soon as possible in the Senate, either before or after Inauguration Day on Jan 20. An article of impeachment encompassing those acts has been introduced in the House. Once Mr. Trump is impeached — the equivalent of an indictment — by the House, Republican senators must join their Democratic colleagues and provide the two-thirds majority required to convict and remove him from office.

Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats briefed on security preparations ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration said Tuesday there is an "increased threat" to the Capitol — and that officials are working to combat it. A member who was on the call late Monday with U.S. Capitol Police and other security officials described it to NBC News as "chilling and horrific." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., notified senators that they would receive a briefing Tuesday afternoon on inauguration security, a Senate source told NBC News. Later Tuesday, House Republicans are expected to receive a security briefing similar to the Democrats' Monday briefing, two sources said. The officials in the Monday House briefing also provided updates about the newly constructed perimeter around the Capitol and the increasing number of National Guard troops securing it.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A third Democratic U.S. lawmaker announced a positive test for COVID-19 after being locked down for hours with other colleagues, including Republicans who did not wear face masks, to avoid the mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol. Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Bonnie Watson Coleman announced their positive test results on Monday and blamed Republicans for refusing to wear masks while isolated for hours in close quarters. U.S. lawmakers who refuse to wear masks in the Capitol should be fined and immediately removed from the chamber’s floor, Jaypal added. Watson Coleman, a 75-year-old cancer survivor, said she was awaiting results from a more comprehensive test after her rapid COVID-19 test came back positive. A handful of Republicans in the room did not wear masks, according to a Reuters eyewitness.

Fred Wilson is a VC and the cofounder of Union Square Ventures, one of Twitter's earliest investors. In a recent post on his blog AVC, Wilson says although it's wonderful Donald Trump can no longer spread "lies, hate, and awfulness" on Twitter, the President's ban a slippery slope. I heard the news last week that Twitter had permanently banned Trump and thought "oh my." If Twitter was a protocol, Twitter the app could ban the President from using its application and could block his tweets from being available in its app. This should be a warning sign to everyone in DC; the Senators, the Representatives, the folks leaving the White House, and the folks entering it.
