Watchdog looks into whether Justice Department officials tried to overturn election

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department’s inspector general is launching an investigation to examine whether any former or current department officials “engaged in an improper attempt” to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Monday that the investigation will investigate allegations concerning the conduct of former and current Justice Department officials but will not extend to other government officials. The Justice Department watchdog inve...

This Week In Trailers: Bucket List, Stallone: Frank, That Is, Beginning, True Mothers

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we wanna be popular, we try and figure out why our life is crumbling, get a surprise six years after we adopt a child, and we get t...

When is it safe to start the high school football season in California?

Parents, coaches and athletes recently held rallies throughout California to pressure policymakers to permit high school sports to start. Football coaches across the state have formed their own lobbying group. And now two Orange County private schools were warned about sanctions after playing a football game last weekend despite all of the Southern California counties being in the purple tier, for the virus being widespread, in the state’s reopening system. The debate to reopen California high s...

Trump impeachment charge will be delivered on Monday, Schumer says

WASHINGTON, Jan 22 (Reuters) – The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will deliver an impeachment charge against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, rejecting Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for a delay.

Alexander: Chris Kirk’s toughest battle came off the golf course

When Chris Kirk finished in a tie for second last week at the Sony Open in Honolulu, it enabled him to regain his PGA Tour card, which in itself was a triumph. Quietly, in the course of a final round 65 at Waialae, he stared down the internal demons that had helped force him off the tour for nearly seven months in 2019. He had taken leave to deal with alcohol abuse and depression, and a related issue was the way he had handled pressure, which in a professional golfer’s case is almost a given if ...

McConnell wants to push impeachment trial to February

By Mary Clare Jalonick and Lisa Mascaro | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is proposing to push back the start of Donald Trump’s impeachment trial by a week or more to give the former president time to review the case. House Democrats who voted to impeach Trump last week for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riots have signaled they want a quick trial as President Joe Biden begins his term, saying a full reckoning is necessary before the country — and the Congres...

The Best Movies & TV Shows Coming to Netflix in February 2021

It’s that time again! Time to talk about what new stuff is hitting Netflix next month. And let me tell you, folks, the line-up for February is looking a little anemic. Netflix has spent the last few years going all-in on their original programming, which means that they’re snapping up less and less familiar titles. As a result, the streaming service unleashes a slew of originals that may or may not be good while cutting down on stuff you might actually want to watch. It’s a bit rough, but that’...

Alex Padilla sworn in as U.S. senator, feeling the weight of ‘the moment’

When Alex Padilla took his seat in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, Jan. 20, he was surrounded by “firsts.” California’s Latino U.S. senator was sworn in by Kamala Harris, the first woman vice president, whose former seat he was appointed to by Gov. Gavin Newsom. He was joined by the Rev. Raphael Warnock, Georgia’s first Black senator, and Jon Ossoff, Georgia’s first Jewish senator — and at age 33 the youngest since Joe Biden entered the Senate in 1972 at age 30. Bible in hand and accompanied by fe...

Trump was talked out of pardoning his kids, GOP lawmakers, report says

By Kaitlan Collins, Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown | CNN President Donald Trump received an unsettling warning on his final Saturday night in the White House. Huddled for a lengthy meeting with his legal advisers, Trump was warned the pardons he once hoped to bestow upon his family and even himself would place him in a legally perilous position, convey the appearance of guilt and potentially make him more vulnerable to reprisals. So, too, was Trump warned that pardons for Republican lawmakers who...

McConnell: Trump ‘fed lies’ to the crowd about election

By Lisa Mascaro and Mary Clare Jalonick | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell opened the Senate on Tuesday saying the pro-Trump mob that stormed the Capitol was “fed lies” by the president and others in the deadly riot to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s election. McConnell’s remarks are his most severe and public rebuke of outgoing President Donald Trump. The Republican leader vowed a “safe and successful” inauguration of Biden on Wednesday at the Capitol, which ...

Biden has set sky-high expectations. Can he meet them?

WASHINGTON — Back when the election was tightening and just a week away, Joe Biden went big. He flew to Warm Springs, the Georgia town whose thermal waters once brought Franklin Delano Roosevelt comfort from polio, and pledged a restitching of America’s economic and policy fabric unseen since FDR’s New Deal. Evoking some of the nation’s loftiest reforms helped Biden unseat President Donald Trump but left him with towering promises to keep. And he’ll be trying to deliver against the backdrop of s...

By Jasmine Wright and Chandelis Duster | CNN Vice President-elect Kamala Harris has formally submitted a letter of resignation for her US Senate seat to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, ending her four-year career in the chamber.

What Biden can and can’t get from an evenly divided Senate

By ANDREW TAYLOR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — So what does a 50-50 Senate get incoming President Joe Biden? Washington has barely had time to process the implications of Democratic control after two Georgia runoff elections that are delivering the Senate to Democrats. Hours after the races were decided, a mob of zealots ransacked the U.S. Capitol and reshaped the national and political landscape. The unexpected new balance of power giving Democrats only the barest control of Congress has big ...

35 years is long enough for immigration reform

January 20 will mark a significant day, not only for the United States as Joe Biden is sworn in as our 46th president, but also for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in our country. They have been waiting for decades for comprehensive immigration reform. President-elect Biden promised that during his first 100 days, he will submit an immigration reform proposal to Congress. That moment couldn’t come soon enough. November 6, 2021 will mark 35 years since President Ronald Reagan signed the Im...

Sacramento: Authorities standing by for possible pro-Trump protests, violence

SACRAMENTO — Armed demonstrations did not materialize Sunday at the California state Capitol despite calls from far-right activists inviting Donald Trump’s supporters to protest the recent presidential election results. MAGA hats and Trump flags, visible throughout the crowd that attacked the U.S Capitol on Jan. 6, were not seen in significant numbers on Sunday. As of the early afternoon, no demonstrations had occurred in Sacramento before a strong National Guard presence ahead of President-elec...

Small numbers of protesters gather at fortified U.S. capitols

Small groups of right-wing protesters — some of them carrying rifles — gathered outside heavily fortified statehouses around the country Sunday as National Guard troops and police kept watch to prevent a repeat of the violence that erupted at the U.S. Capitol. There were no immediate reports of any clashes. Security was stepped up in recent days after the FBI warned of the potential for armed protests in Washington and at all 50 state capitol buildings ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugu...

49ers Defensive Coordinator Robert Saleh Becomes Jets New Head Coach

NEW YORK (AP/CBS13) – The New York Jets were searching for a leader, someone who could bring a frustrated, playoff-starved franchise back to respectability. They think they found their guy in Robert Saleh. The Jets reached an agreement in principle with the popular and energetic San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Thursday night to hire him as their head coach. Saleh replaces Adam Gase, who was fired on Jan. 3 after going 9-23 in two seasons. The 41-year-old Saleh emerged as a favorite for...

The 2020 Heisman Trophy was awarded 10 days ago, but odds for the 2021 race are already out. The top tier of candidates is stocked with quarterbacks from the Pac-12 footprint but playing for powerhouse programs elsewhere: Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler, who is from Phoenix, is the favorite, followed by Alabama’s Bryce Young (Mater Dei), Clemson’s DJ Uiagalelei (St. John Bosco) and Georgia’s JT Daniels (Mater Dei), the former Trinity League stars all leading teams that are expected to be in the natio...

Trump’s impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day, just as Democrat Joe Biden takes the oath of office in an ever-more-extraordinary end to the defeated president’s tenure in the White House. The timing is not set and depends heavily on when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decides to transmit the article of impeachment to the Senate. Democrats hoping to avoid interrupting Biden’s inauguration have suggested holding back until the new president has a chance to get...

Yang kicks off candidacy for New York City mayor

By Gregory Krieg and Rob Frehse | CNN Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang officially jumped into the crowded race to become the next mayor of New York City on Thursday morning. At a kick-off rally in Upper Manhattan, Yang promised to “revive” a city stricken by the coronavirus and introduced newly-elected Rep. Ritchie Torres as a co-chair on his campaign — a striking endorsement for a candidate with no experience in city politics. “I’m running for mayor for a very simple reason,...

Don’t hate the political players, hate the political game

Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it’s not that they will miss Trump’s unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it’s that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the...

McConnell distances himself from Trump as impeachment nears

By Alan Fram and Andrew Taylor | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is moving abruptly away from President Donald Trump, telling people that he thinks Trump perpetrated impeachable offenses. The Kentucky Republican also sees House Democrats’ drive to impeach Trump as an opportune moment to distance the GOP from the tumultuous, divisive outgoing president.

President Trump on verge of 2nd impeachment after Capitol siege

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is on the verge of being impeached for a second time in a fast-moving House vote, just a week after he encouraged loyalists to “fight like hell” against election results and then a mob of supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. “We are debating this historic measure at a crime scene,” said Rep.
