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...

GOP wrestles with the post-Trump future

By Steve Peoples | Associated Press For the first time in more than a decade, Republicans are waking up to a Washington where Democrats control the White House and Congress, adjusting to an era of diminished power, deep uncertainty and internal feuding. The shift to minority status is always difficult, prompting debates over who is to blame for losing the last election. But the process is especially intense as Republicans confront profound questions about what the party stands for without Donald...

In dozens of orders, President Biden aims at 4 ‘converging crises’

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden’s first day agenda has a pretty clear subtext: We’ve got this. The incoming administration released a fact sheet hours ahead of Wednesday’s inauguration ceremony detailing immediate steps that it will take to tackle the still-raging coronavirus pandemic and other “converging crises” facing the country. “He will sign a combination of executive orders, memoranda, directives, and letters to take initial steps to address these crises, including by changing the course...

‘Have a good life’: Trump says farewell at airbase send-off before Biden’s inauguration

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump departed the White House a final time as president Wednesday, skipping Joe Biden’s inauguration and instead threw a military-style send-off for himself before leaving for his Florida resort. “I will always fight for you. I will be watching, I will be listening, and I will tell you that the future of this country has never been better. I wish the new administration great luck, great success,” Trump said at Joint Base Andrews outside of Washington before boarding Air F...

For first time in years, local immigrants see hope, not fear, coming from White House proposals

Immigrants and their advocates in Southern California are excited and hopeful about the prospects of sweeping immigration reform that could come shortly after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office. The new president is expected to reverse a slew of Trump administration policies, and introduce legislation that could give millions of people living in the country illegally a chance to become citizens after an eight-year process. Some actions are expected quickly, via executive order and ot...

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...

Will President Joe Biden have an economic mandate?

Joe Biden will govern a nation divided in many ways — and the pandemic-battered economy is a prime example. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with government economic data, parsed some of the business-related differences between the states that Biden won in the presidential race vs. those he lost. Sharp statistical contrasts suggest issues such as business recovery, poverty, healthcare and housing won’t be politically easy to cure. When you ponder these divergences, don’t forget the nation’s founder...

Southern Californians eagerly await — or dread — Joe Biden’s inauguration

Four years ago this week, Rick Reiss, while visiting his wife’s family in the Philippines, got up at 3 a.m. to watch President Donald Trump’s inauguration. On Wednesday, Jan. 20, Reiss will be home in Temecula. But instead of watching President-elect Joe Biden’s swearing-in, Reiss might grab his “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and join fellow conservatives at an outdoor rally. “With what’s happening now, obviously I’m not happy about how things turned out,” he said. “I’m not in a depression though … I’...

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 ...

The future of conservatism isn’t Trumpism, it’s liberty

Donald Trump was elected to “drain the swamp,” put “America first” and flex America’s superiority over China. He fulfilled many of his promises, challenged norms and introduced a new presidential approach. Trump is not the first president who has lost reelection and won’t be the last. But the biggest question remains: Where is the Republican Party heading after the Trump-era? I believe the Republican Party is turning to a hub for the demographics that have been failed by the Democrats’ empty pro...

Democrats build impeachment case, alleging ‘dangerous crime’

WASHINGTON — The lead prosecutor for President Donald Trump’s historic second impeachment began building his case for conviction at trial, asserting on Sunday that Trump’s incitement of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol was “the most dangerous crime” ever committed by a president against the United States. A Senate trial could begin as soon as this week, just as Democrat Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th president. Digital image from a video released by the White House on January 13, 2021....

Biden’s inaugural speech to plead for unity in wake of riot

Joe Biden ascends to the presidency on Wednesday with an inaugural speech outlining how he’ll tackle the health and economic crises he inherits while attempting to knit the country back together, just two weeks after the outgoing president’s loyalists waged a deadly riot to block the change of power. The incoming president will call on the U.S. to abandon the divisiveness stoked by Donald Trump, whose four-year term ends with nearly 400,000 Americans dead of COVID-19, a sharp economic downturn a...

Trump allies were behind rally that ignited Capitol riot, records show

WASHINGTON — Members of President Donald Trump’s failed presidential campaign played key roles in orchestrating the Washington rally that spawned a deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol, according to an Associated Press review of records, undercutting claims the event was the brainchild of the president’s grassroots supporters. A pro-Trump nonprofit group called Women for America First hosted the “Save America Rally” on Jan. 6 at the Ellipse, an oval-shaped, federally owned patch of land near the W...

Supporting freedom isn’t a crime, yet

California Democratic Party chair Rusty Hicks ruined it for everybody. Things were going so well for the Democrats. Big tech companies were banning conservatives from social media. The anti-Trump Lincoln Project launched a blacklist aimed at permanently denying employment to anyone who worked in or near the Trump administration. Major corporations including Marriott cut off political donations to the House Minority Leader and more than 100 lawmakers in the GOP caucus. Yes, it was going well, thi...

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...

Donald Trump stands largely silent, alone after second impeachment

By JONATHAN LEMIRE, JILL COLVIN and ZEKE MILLER | Associated Press WASHINGTON — His place in the history books rewritten, President Donald Trump endured his second impeachment largely alone and silent. For more than four years, Trump has dominated the national discourse like no one before him. Yet when his legacy was set in stone on Wednesday, he was stunningly left on the sidelines. Trump now stands with no equal, the only president to be charged twice with a high crime or misdemeanor, a new co...

Biden’s trillion-dollar economic plan focuses on higher stimulus payments, vaccines

President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday will unveil a Covid-19 relief package rivaled in size only by last year’s $2 trillion Cares Act, in his first legislative test in the face of a split U.S. Senate and a deteriorating economy. Transition officials developed a proposal with Democratic lawmakers and their staff in recent days that’s anticipated at least the $900 billion of December’s bill, with incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pressing for more than $1.3 trillion.

Without Twitter, Trump remains largely invisible

By Kaitlan Collins and Kevin Liptak | CNN On the day he will be impeached for a history-making second time, President Donald Trump lacks a comprehensive legal strategy, has nothing on his public schedule and is without his preferred social media methods of responding — in part because his son-in-law put a stop to efforts establishing his presence on fringe platforms after he was banned from Twitter. It amounts to near-invisibility for the President at the most perilous moment of his presidency, ...

Democracy vs. unity? Local House members differ on why they support, or oppose, impeaching Trump

“Democracy.” Or, from those on the other side of the political aisle, “unity.” Those are the boil-it-down-to-a-word answers when local House members are asked why they favor or oppose impeaching short-timer President Donald Trump for his role in inciting insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The unprecedented violence that on Jan. 6 led to five deaths and drove House members of both parties into hiding is sparking the equally unprecedented second impeachment of Trump. But the ideological split that ...

Third lawmaker in lockdown tests positive for COVID-19

By KEVIN FREKING WASHINGTON (AP) — A third Democratic member of the House who was forced to go into lockdown during last week’s violent siege at the U.S. Capitol has tested positive for COVID-19. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., said on Twitter that he tested positive Tuesday morning. He said he is not feeling symptoms but expressed dismay at the spate of positive test results and blamed Republican members of Congress who declined to wear a mask when it was offered to them during the lockdown. “Toda...
