Few commented on the US Capitol attack. One of the president's biggest boosters, the casino mogul Phil Ruffin, declined to comment on the insurrection at the Capitol. Stanley Hubbard says the Capitol attack will not influence his giving to the GOP. "I feel betrayed," Home Depot cofounder and longtime GOP donor said on CNBC the week after the Capitol attack. During the attack on the Capitol, President-elect Joe Biden called for Trump to go on national TV to tell supporters to back down.

Fed's Powell: "Not the time" to discuss any change to bond purchases

FILE PHOTO: Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testifies before the Senate Banking Committee hearing on "The Quarterly CARES Act Report to Congress" on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., December 1, 2020. Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERS//File Photo(Reuters) - With the U.S. economy still far from its inflation and employment goals it is too early for the Federal Reserve to discuss changing its monthly bond purchases, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said Thursday. Those suggestions may have contributed, if slightly, to a recent rise in yields on U.S. Treasury securities. Fed talk of trimming bond purchases after the 2007 to 2009 financial crisis at one point triggered rapid changes in global bond yields, a “tantrum” Fed officials have since tried to avoid by flagging any changes to their asset purchases well ahead of time. Powell promised that would be the case with the current purchases as well.

SEE NEW POSTSHouse Republicans put divides over Trump's culpability on clear display As the debate unfolded on the U.S. House floor ahead of the vote to impeach President Trump for inciting last week's riots that engulfed the Capitol, the growing divide within the Republican caucus over the president's actions was on clear display. Many Republicans mounted little defense of the president, in stark reversal from last year’s impeachment debate. He continued: “A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence we witnessed in our nation’s capital." He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote. Matt Fuller, a reporter for HuffPost, recorded at least 12 GOP lawmakers either side-stepping the metal detectors or setting them off and continuing on to the House floor.

That's to say nothing of Biden's proposal to cancel a minimum of $10,000 in federal student loans after he takes office. Apart from student debt cancellation, the COVID-19 pandemic has also led to lower potential students enrolling in college, meaning lower volumes of loan origination for SoFi.

FILE PHOTO: Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testifies before the Senate Banking Committee hearing on "The Quarterly CARES Act Report to Congress" on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., December 1, 2020. Powell had wanted to keep the programs open to backstop an increasingly weaker-looking recovery. But a week after Powell’s call with Toomey, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin abruptly pulled the plug on most of them and demanded the return of funds earmarked for their use. Powell also held more than a dozen other calls during the month with Democrat and Republican members of Congress, who were at loggerheads at the time over fiscal relief that Powell had for months argued was needed to bolster the economy. The Fed chair has made outreach to senators and members of Congress a key aspect of his tenure.

Solar stocks surged in 2020 and they have more room to grow in the new year. Three companies — First Solar, Sunrun, and Sunnova — are well-positioned under a Biden administration, according to analysts at JMP Securities. But at least three solar stocks still have plenty of upside, according to analysts at JMP Securities. To answer that question, they turned to the policy changes they expect under a Biden administration. The Biden administration has also indicated support for domestic manufacturing of solar panels.

President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could occupy his time for years to come. Trump's legal turmoil involves the president's administration, campaign, inaugural committee, and businesses interests. The outgoing president could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. During an hourlong phone call, Trump asked Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to "find" 11,780 votes in Georgia — a state that Trump lost by roughly that many votes. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed during late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether it violated election laws.

At least one member of the House and one member of the Senate must both move to challenge a state's electors in writing. If no members raise an objection to a state's electors, that states' slate of electors is accepted. Lawmakers cannot challenge all the electoral votes cast throughout the entire country or for a given candidate altogether. If they wish to challenge multiple states' electors, as Brooks has indicated he is interested in doing, they must challenge each state individually. If the group challenges multiple states' electors, the process could drag on until the next day, which the ECA provides for.

(GRAPHIC: Virus explodes, recovery flattens - )The unemployment rate has come down faster and growth through September was stronger than Fed officials projected earlier this year. But few expect the Fed to expand “quantitative easing” now despite the risks scattered across the landscape. Indeed the Fed is, through no fault of its own, actually pulling back: U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has ordered several Fed pandemic lending programs to close at year end. For some, that’s a reason for the Fed to do more, both to thwart risks facing the economy and to bolster its promises about inflation. “It is a race between fiscal support and when the labor market recovers with the vaccine.”

Mnuchin spoke a day after he and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows addressed COVID-19 relief with McConnell and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in a private discussion that focused on measures that Trump could be expected to sign into law. McConnell’s outline is very close to the legislation that the Senate leader has been touting for months and was rejected by Democrats, according to one Senate Republican source. The plan includes $332.7 billion in new loans or grants to small businesses, according to a document provided to Reuters.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Trump supported a proposal put forth by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after he rejected on Tuesday a $908 billion bipartisan package.

Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERSNEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - Jay Powell remains the adult in the room. The Federal Reserve chair testified in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday alongside Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a hearing on Covid-19 relief measures. Instead the posturing came from senators as the polarizing presidency of Donald Trump transitions to the administration of President-elect Joe Biden. A $908 billion bipartisan stimulus bill, released by a group of senators the same day, offers both sides reasons to compromise. Some in Biden’s circle want the Fed to get more involved in addressing social inequities, too, not to mention a possible role in tackling climate change.

President Donald Trump has stopped talking about the coronavirus pandemic, even as the US struggles through its third outbreak, and new hospitalizations and infections continue to soar. Since President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 election, Trump has used his public statements to double down on the baseless claims that the election was stolen from him. On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicted that the US could pass 300,000 coronavirus deaths by December 19. President Donald Trump has all but stopped talking about the coronavirus pandemic, despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning the US could pass 300,000 deaths by Christmas.

Social media firms have been under scrutiny over how they police rapidly spreading false information and election-related abuses of their platforms. Georgia’s two competitive contests in January will determine which party gets majority control of the Senate. The letters, signed by four Democratic Senators and Bernie Sanders, sought information about the content moderation practices, civic integrity policies and improvements that the companies will have in place for the Georgia runoff election.
