The Arizona Republican Party will vote on a measure to censure Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, on Jan. 23, in part because of her support for President-elect Joe Biden and for same-sex marriage. “Cindy McCain has condemned President Trump for his criticism of her husband and erroneously placed behaviors over actual presidential results,” the proposal states. “As chairman of the AZGOP she managed to turn Arizona blue in November for the first time since 1996,” Cindy McCain said of Ward. But the state Republican Party later tweeted that Maricopa County couldn’t censure McCain because of a rule that prohibited amendments to resolutions on the floor. In addition to voting on the McCain censure proposal on Jan. 23, the state party is expected to re-elect Ward as chair, according to Arizona Central.

The House debated a single article of impeachment formally charging Trump with inciting insurrection. Under the U.S. Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate. At least five House Republicans, including Liz Cheney, a member of her party’s leadership team, said they would vote for impeachment. “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore,” Trump told his supporters. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden speaks as he announces members of economics and jobs team at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, January 8, 2021. President-elect Joe Biden is expected on Thursday to unveil his long-awaited stimulus plan, with those familiar with the legislation suggesting it will seek to draw bipartisan support in Congress. The bid for Republican backing has led some to wonder if Thursday's bill will come in at or below the "trillions of dollars" Biden promised last week. For his part, Block believes Thursday's bill will include an increase in the $300 unemployment supplement, an extension of eviction moratorium and "hundreds of billions" in government aid. A spokesperson for Biden's transition team declined to comment on this story.

“We must get on with the business of America,” Trump, a Republican, added, adopting a conciliatory tone seldom seen from the mercurial president. As recently as Thursday morning, when he issued a statement via an aide, Trump was still claiming the election had been stolen. If Pence fails to act, Pelosi signaled she would likely reconvene the House to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump for his role in Wednesday’s violence. More than half of House Republicans and eight Republican senators voted to challenge the election results, backing Trump. After Trump posted several messages about the demonstrations on Wednesday, Facebook Inc said it would ban Trump posts until Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration.

President-elect Joe Biden will name federal appeals court judge Merrick Garland to be his attorney general, two people familiar with the matter told CNBC. Biden has said he will leave such decisions to the Department of Justice and that he intends to support the independence of his attorney general. In addition to overseeing federal investigations, the attorney general has a wide portfolio overseeing the Department of Justice. An official told NBC News that the former vice president is expected to name Lisa Monaco as deputy attorney general, Vanita Gupta as associate attorney general, and Kristen Clarke as the assistant attorney general overseeing civil rights. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in a statement on Wednesday that he believed Garland "would be a sound choice" as attorney general.

The session also appeared to end for now a push by Democrats to increase COVID-19 relief checks from $600 to $2,000 sought by Trump. Senator Bernie Sanders again joined Democrats in a bid to force a vote on higher payments, only to be blocked by Republicans. The vote in the Republican-led Senate followed a similar override vote in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives on Monday. A president has the power to veto a bill passed by Congress, but lawmakers can uphold the bill if two-thirds of both houses vote to override the veto. “Our Republican Senate just missed the opportunity to get rid of Section 230, which gives unlimited power to Big Tech companies.

The end of the holiday season should lend momentum to vaccine rollouts. The United States, Russia, Britain and the European Union have started inoculations, while developing countries are testing storage and transport facilities. Many fret that a Democrat win in Georgia will disrupt that balance, threatening the Santa Claus rally. November data already indicated the employment market was losing steam, with 245,000 new jobs added, the fewest in six months. As of November, the economy had recouped only 12.4 million of the 22.2 million jobs lost in March and April.

Behind the scenes, Mr. Biden quietly pushed for lawmakers to strike a compromise that would deliver at least some modest help after months of congressional inaction. And in drastically lowering their demands for another multitrillion-dollar package, Democrats cited the surprise success of initial vaccine trials, Mr. Biden’s victory in the election and his promise to pursue another relief package in January as part of their reason for doing so. Even if Democrats win both runoff elections for Georgia’s Senate seats on Jan. 5 and gain control of the chamber, current Senate rules will require some Republican support to ensure that legislation clears the chamber. If Republicans hold on to at least one of those seats, Mr. Biden will be left contending with a Republican Senate majority. With both sides so dug in on the two issues over about eight months of debate, congressional leaders ultimately agreed to remove both provisions from the final $900 billion agreement.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused the GOP of "fighting against" efforts to seal the deal on a $900 billion coronavirus relief package. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the GOP's handling of coronavirus stimulus talks on Thursday, saying that it feels like the Republican Senate majority " just doesn't care" about the impact it could have on ordinary Americans. We have just an insane amount of food instability in our community, and it just feels like the Republican Party in the Senate just doesn't care," she added. … There are people that are on the brink of eviction in their states too," she added, according to Yahoo News. Her comments came a day before Congress approved a two-day funding extension to buy more time for stimulus negotiations.

Over the summer, Biden worked with progressive champions of climate policy, including Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to develop an aggressive plan to address climate change. With a divided Congress, there's almost no chance the Biden administration can push through it's most aggressive climate proposals. "It's the investment side of the climate policy toolkit that's most popular and most effective, especially right now," he told Business Insider. NoiseCat said he's concerned that Republicans will characterize Biden's climate rules and regulations as anti-business and dismiss them as "job-killing, socialist regulations in the midst of a pandemic." Republican lawmakers have become increasingly willing to support incremental climate policy, particularly those that invest in agriculture and business.

Aly Song | ReutersA common interest in combating climate change could be catalyst for the Biden Administration to re-engage with China. Biden has pledged to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, an agreement adopted by nearly every country in the world in 2015. The Biden administration has made climate a cornerstone of its policy goals, and it is apparent across multiple cabinet nominees. Dan Yergin, vice chairman at IHS Markit, said climate was one area of agreement between China and the Obama administration, when Biden was vice president. I even think climate is where you're going to have collaboration with the Gulf States as well," he said.
