Just last week Trump summoned Michigan Republican leaders to the White House to try to throw out the state's election results. The most egregious example is Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, the subject of an ethics complaint we filed, along with former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub, last Wednesday with the Senate Ethics Committee. Senate ethics rules prohibit Senate employees from engaging in campaign activity, unless it is clear that they do so on their own time, outside of Senate space, and without using Senate resources.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - More prominent Republicans on Monday joined the call for President Donald Trump to end efforts to overturn his election defeat and allow President-elect Joe Biden to begin the formal transition to a new administration. Twenty days after Election Day, most members of Trump’s party still refused on Monday to refer to Biden as president-elect, or to question Trump’s insistence - without evidence - that he had only lost on Nov. 3 because of fraud. Republican Senator Rob Portman - co-chairman of Trump’s campaign in Ohio who rarely breaks with party leaders - said there was no evidence of widespread election fraud and called for the transition to begin. “It is now time to expeditiously resolve any outstanding questions and move forward,” Portman wrote in a Cincinnati Enquirer opinion column on Monday.

The dollar index was last up 0.05% at 92.366, after earlier dropping to 92.013, the lowest since Sept. 1. It is hovering just above technical support around 92, a conclusive break below which could usher in new weakness, analysts said. Analysts at Brown Brothers Harriman said that if the index breaks its September low, there is little support until its low from February 2018. The Reuters dollar index showed the greenback falling to a more than two-year low of 91.737 on Sept. 1. Based on the Reuters dollar index, the next target for the euro is likely its September high near $1.2010, followed by the February 2018 high of $1.2555, Brown Brothers Harriman said.

State officials are sounding the alarm on an uptick in death threats that they've received since the presidential election. President Donald Trump is fueling a wave of hatred and violent threats toward local officials in key swing states where he's challenging the 2020 election results. A PBS "Frontline" investigation also showed that state officials in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada are facing death threats. The Trump campaign has lost four lawsuits alleging improper counting of ballots and massive fraud in Michigan. Two lawsuits by the Trump campaign have been rejected in Arizona due to baseless assertions that Republican votes were being thrown out and invalidated.

The dollar index was last up 0.18% at 92.482, after earlier dropping to 92.013, the lowest since Sept. 1. A conclusive break on the dollar index below support at around 92 could usher in new weakness, analysts said. Many analysts see the dollar as likely to underperform next year when global growth is expected to improve as vaccines against the novel coronavirus are rolled out. “That spells dollar weakness for us given the dollar’s countercyclical characteristics,” said Vassili Serebriakov, an FX strategist at UBS in New York. The dollar index dipped slightly after the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. President-elect Joe Biden plans to nominate former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen to become the next Treasury Secretary.

'There is no reason to believe there are widespread errors or fraud and the Trump campaign has no evidence to back up their baseless claims," she said.

The Covid-19 pandemic, which will throw the global economy into a deep recession this year before an economic rebound expected in 2021, is at the top of the agenda. G20 leaders are concerned that the pandemic might further deepen global divisions between the rich and the poor. To do that, the European Union urged G20 leaders to quickly put more money into a global project for vaccines, tests and therapeutics called Access to Covid-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. Extending the temporary debt relief could encourage some additional countries to ask for forbearance, experts say, but private sector creditors must also agree to participate. Debt relief for Africa will be an important theme of the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021.
