The president's baseless assertion that the election was stolen from him, and therefore that swaths of electoral votes for Biden should be rejected, holds peril for Republicans. On Saturday, Trump in an hour-long phone call pressed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to overturn Biden's victory there. Once Congress finalizes the electoral count, Biden's final step is to take the oath of office on Jan. 20. Pence will receive the states' slates of electoral votes in alphabetical order. Once the votes are counted and the objections are settled, Pence will declare the results of the election.

The Biden administration that arrives in January is primed to crack down on white-collar crime after a steady drop under his two most recent predecessors. Despite its slick name, white-collar crime can also be just as dangerous — if not more dangerous — than violent crime. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — who've long advocated for tougher oversight of corporate crime — Biden called Wall Street "greedy as hell." The growing use of those agreements in major financial crime cases has, unsurprisingly, coincided with a drop in prosecutions. The person also said they're confident that the Biden administration "will be more assertive" in tackling financial crime, citing the president-elect's Cabinet picks so far.
