ET Fact-Checking the Congressional Debate on Ratifying the Election Results Image Supporters of President Trump outside the Capitol in Washington on Wednesday. Before the Congressional action got underway, Mr. Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters in Washington, repeating many of his baseless claims that the election was stolen from him through widespread election fraud. In Georgia, there are two signature matches required by state election law for absentee ballots. President Trump and his supporters in Congress repeatedly draw from the conspiracy movement QAnon, which has pushed false claims about election fraud. In Pennsylvania, officials discovered that a man had unlawfully voted for Mr. Trump in the name of his deceased mother.

REUTERS/Cheriss MayFor One America News Network (OAN) and Newsmax, the Georgia runoffs present an opportunity to capitalize on post-presidential election audience gains, which they’ve boosted thanks to promotion from President Donald Trump. Trump ramped up his criticism of Rupert Murdoch’s Fox Corp-owned Fox News and began to promote Newsmax and OAN on Twitter instead, helping the two outlets to the right of Fox grow. OAN reporters will cover the elections from Georgia, Florida and Washington, OAN President Charles Herring said. Courting a divided conservative audience will be key to keeping viewers engaged after the U.S presidential election, which helped Newsmax and OAN attract record audiences. OAN President Charles Herring said the network’s audience swelled by more than 40 percent in the fourth quarter over the third quarter.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rejected President Trump's push for $2,000 stimulus checks Wednesday, blocking a vote on the issue proposed by Democrats. He had delayed signing the spending bill authorizing the checks in an attempt to pressure Congress to increase the figure. Without the threat of a veto, and with firm opposition from McConnell, Trump has nowhere to go. The conflict between President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell escalated Wednesday, when McConnell effectively ended the president's bid to hike stimulus checks to $2,000. Some commentators said events this week have showed that McConnell, not Trump, is now the dominant figure in the GOP.

President Donald Trump could complicate President-elect Joe Biden's job by leaving thousands of political holdovers in office by Inauguration Day. "It just makes things messy," a source close to the Biden transition told Insider. Joe Biden's team is worried that Donald Trump might force him to purge the outgoing president's political appointees who don't voluntarily resign by Inauguration Day. "It just makes things messy," a source close to the Biden transition told Insider this week. The White House declined to comment on whether chief of staff Mark Meadows plans to ask political appointees to submit resignation letters.

Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller has ordered the Pentagon to halt cooperation with the Biden transition team, Axios reported Friday. A Pentagon official said that the reason was that the staff involved in the transition is "overwhelmed." Cooperation will likely restart sometime after the holidays, a Pentagon official told Axios. A senior Pentagon official told Axios that Miller's order was issued because the Pentagon staff involved in the transition are "overwhelmed" by everything needed to be completed. A number of senior leaders are new to the Pentagon, including the defense secretary and the the senior official tasked with leading the transition.

Trump had come to tell Georgia Republicans to vote in the Senate races that would decide which party controls Congress. But he spent most of the rally repeating his false and widely debunked election-fraud claims - and bashing leading Georgia Republicans for not helping him overturn his loss. But several voters said in interviews they believed Trump’s fraud allegations would motivate voters rather than discourage them. A handful of the 50 voters interviewed by Reuters dismissed Trump’s fraud claims entirely, acknowledging Biden won fairly. Georgia Republicans’ reluctance to repudiate Trump underscores his continuing influence in motivating massive numbers of voters and pulling the party toward his brash brand of populism.

While the incoming Biden administration could undo all of these changes if it wanted, it might not be easy to do so quickly. After only a week on the job, Trump's new defense secretary announced plans to pull thousands of US troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. "The first thing is identifying all the knots," a former Pentagon official who has experienced past transitions at the Defense Department told Insider. "That will take time," the former Pentagon official told Insider. Biden has selected Lloyd Austin, a retired US Army four-star general, to lead the Pentagon as secretary of defense.

One of the few members of the Defense Business Board, a Pentagon advisory group, to survive a recent purge has resigned in protest, CNN first reported. The purge of the Defense Business Board last week followed the removal of most of the Defense Policy Board late last month. The Trump administration has also purged much of the Pentagon's civilian leadership, clearing the way for loyalists to fill top posts. Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller said last Friday that he was "proud to welcome each of these new members to the Defense Business Board." In addition to pushing out defense advisors, the Trump administration has also purged a number of senior Pentagon officials.

Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller installed two close allies of President Trump, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, to the Pentagon’s Defense Business Board Friday in an abrupt shake-up of the historically non-partisan advisory group. Miller removed nine members of the board and replaced them with a total of 11 others, including Lewandowski and Bossie. The board advises the defense secretary and deputy secretary on business management issues and is historically non-partisan. Lewandoski and Bossie co-authored a book, “Let Trump be Trump,” about their time working on the president’s 2016 campaign. Others appointed to the Defense Business Board Friday include: Henry Dreifus, Robert McMahon, Cory Mills, Bill Bruner, Christopher Shank, Joseph Schmidt, Keary Miller, Alan Weh, and Earl Matthews.

The move follows the firing of most of the Defense Policy Board last week. The Defense Business Board consists of outside experts appointed to provide senior Department of Defense officials with independent advice on business issues. The form letter the departing board members received reportedly said that the Department of Defense will be nominating new board members and thanked them for their service. In addition to pushing out defense advisors, the Trump administration has also purged a number of senior Pentagon officials. Maier's duties were taken over by Tata and Cohen-Watnick, who occupy the top Pentagon policy and intelligence positions, respectively.

Former Trump 2016 campaign officials Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie are among the 11 new members. WASHINGTON — Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller dismissed nine Defense Business Board members and replaced them with 11 new appointments on Friday, the latest shakeup in the Pentagon aimed at installing Trump loyalists. "However, board members receive reimbursement of travel and per diem during dates of travel for board business," the official added. Last month, the Pentagon elevated three Trump loyalists to powerful positions a day after the sudden termination of Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Replacing Jen Stewart, the chief of staff to the Defense secretary, is Kash Patel, a member of the National Security Council.
