The vaccine rollout is too complicated, but getting better

People were rightly angry at stories of vaccine doses expiring or sitting unused. I have tried not to be too negative about the United States' COVID-19 vaccine rollout process because we're doing better than most countries around the world, and we're doing better than we were doing a couple of weeks ago. About twice as many vaccine doses were administered in the seven-day period ending January 11 as in the seven-day period ending January 4. Second, we can see examples right nearby of states that are vaccinating faster, including Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont. In the coming weeks, I am optimistic we will see a vaccine rollout that continues to get both faster and more straightforward.

"Accordingly, the House will preserve every option — including the 25th Amendment, a motion to impeach or a privileged resolution for impeachment."

ET Live Updates: Twitter Bans Trump Account, Resignations Grow and Impeachment Threat Looms House Democrats intend to introduce an article of impeachment on Monday charging President Trump with “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States.” President-elect Joe Biden prioritizes the economy, saying there is a “a dire, dire need to act now.”Democrats ready impeachment charge against Trump for inciting the mob. The threat was part of an all-out effort by furious Democrats, backed by a handful of Republicans, to pressure Mr. Trump to leave office in disgrace after the hourslong siege by his supporters on Wednesday on Capitol Hill. At least one Republican, Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, followed Ms. Pelosi’s lead and told The Anchorage Daily News that she was considering leaving the Republican Party altogether because of Mr. Trump. Among enraged Democrats, an expedited impeachment appeared to be the most attractive option to remove Mr. Trump and register their outrage at his role in encouraging what became an insurrection. The sweeping clampdown on asylum would have prevented a large swath of people from qualifying for protection in the United States by narrowing eligibility.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won.

Ms. Raimondo has a law degree from Yale University and earned a doctorate from Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes scholar. As commerce secretary, Ms. Raimondo will control an agency that was at the forefront of an economic fight with China during the Trump administration. A sprawling agency with nearly 50,000 employees, the Commerce Department has used its vast power to curtail the access of Chinese companies to the American market and technology. The department promotes U.S. business abroad through the Foreign Commercial Service, and at home by providing grants for strategically important businesses through the Economic Development Administration. The Commerce Department also contains the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which is in charge of monitoring the weather and managing American fisheries, making it a potential player in Mr. Biden’s hopes to slow climate change.
