New CDC director takes over battered agency in crisis

By Mike Stobbe | Associated Press NEW YORK — As the coronavirus swept across the globe last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sank into the shadows, undermined by some of its own mistakes and stifled by an administration bent on downplaying the nation’s suffering. Now a new CDC director is arriving to a mammoth task: reasserting the agency while the pandemic is in its deadliest phase yet and the nation’s largest-ever vaccination campaign is wracked by confusion and delays. “I ...

Joe Biden takes the helm of our divided nation

After the most divisive post-election period in modern history, the nation will today inaugurate Joe Biden as its 46th president. We needn’t fully recount the election challenges that former President Trump attempted since he lost on Nov. 3, but his fraud allegations and refusal to conform to long-held transition customs has frayed the social fabric and undermined trust in our institutions. Trump’s behavior has led to today’s inaugural backdrop: More than three-quarters of Republicans tell polls...

How Trump will hand off nuclear football if he won’t meet Biden

By Zachary Cohen, CNN (CNN) — President Donald Trump will not be in attendance Wednesday to watch as his successor Joe Biden is sworn into office, but his absence will have little impact on what may be one of the most important moments of Inauguration Day, the handing off of the “nuclear football.” The “football,” which contains the equipment that Trump would use to authenticate his orders and launch a nuclear strike, is carried by a military aide who accompanies the president at all times — up...

Trumps won’t greet Bidens at White House before inauguration

By Kate Bennett | CNN On the morning of Jan. 20, Donald Trump and Melania Trump will depart the White House as President and first lady, but they will not invite their incoming counterparts, Joe and Jill Biden, inside before they do. The dissolving of one of America’s most enduring transfer-of-power rituals — the outgoing president welcoming the incoming president on the steps of the North Portico, and then riding with them to the United States Capitol — is just one of the snubs the Trumps are p...

Capitol mob meant to ‘assassinate’ officials, feds say

By Alanna Durkin Richer and Jacques Billeaud | Associated Press PHOENIX — The pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week aimed to “capture and assassinate elected officials,” federal prosecutors said in court documents. The remark came in a motion prosecutors filed late Thursday in the case against Jacob Chansley, the Arizona man who took part in the insurrection while sporting face paint, no shirt and a furry hat with horns. Prosecutors say that after Chansley climbed up to the dai...

Trump takes no responsibility for Capitol riot, visits Texas

ALAMO, Texas — President Donald Trump on Tuesday took no responsibility for his part in fomenting a violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week, despite his comments encouraging supporters to march on the Capitol and praise for them while they were still carrying out the assault. “People thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump said.

Trump rejects blame for Capitol riot, calls rally remarks ‘totally appropriate’

As dust settles on chaos in D.C., accounting begins in Southern California

Even as the House of Representatives laid the groundwork Monday for a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, one of his supporters, Jessica Martinez, took heavy political fire 3,000 miles away in her role as a member the Whittier City Council. Martinez was in Washington D.C. last week when Trump supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol in the hope of upending the recent presidential election. Now, many in the city of 86,000 want her to step down from the council. She’s hardly alone. From lo...

Trump’s unwieldy populism has taken the right off a cliff

Donald Trump was elected to be the bull in the china shop. He was chosen to challenge the status quo, to stand up to out-of-touch elites in Washington, D.C. And for four years, he said and did things far beyond the norm. Four years later, where do things stand? Well, Donald Trump lost re-election. States, courts, and now Congress have all validated that. Republicans lost two United States Senate seats in Georgia and by extension, control of the Senate.  Republicans actually did impressively well...

Capitol police were overrun, ‘left naked’ against rioters

By Colleen Long, Michael Balsamo and Lisa Mascaro | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Despite ample warnings about pro-Trump demonstrations in Washington, U.S. Capitol Police did not bolster staffing on Wednesday and made no preparations for the possibility that the planned protests could escalate into massive violent riots, according to several people briefed on law enforcement’s response. The revelations shed new light on why Capitol police were so quickly overrun by rioters. The department had th...

Rioters derailed a lawful debate about the election

It’s not true that election fraud never happens. The Heritage Foundation has a database of over 1,300 election fraud cases and how they were eventually resolved. Investigations can take years. For example, in July, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a grand jury indictment in a case of alleged ballot-box stuffing in Pennsylvania elections dating back to 2014, 2015, and 2016. When states conduct elections for federal offices, there are constitutional safeguards at the front end to make sure al...

Analysis: For Trump and the nation, a final test of accountability

WASHINGTON — Barely 11 months after President Donald Trump was acquitted in a momentous Senate trial, the nation now confronts the possibility of yet another impeachment battle in the twilight of his presidency, a final showdown that will test the boundaries of politics, accountability and the Constitution.

11 journalists on covering the Capitol siege: ‘This could get ugly’

Reporters knew before they arrived at the Capitol on Wednesday that there would be large protests in support of President Donald Trump. But most expected the day’s main event to be the drama and ceremony of the nation’s leaders debating the ratification of the Electoral College vote for Joe Biden as the next president. The journalists ended up chronicling a siege that underscored the fragility of American democracy. Many did their jobs a few feet from drawn weapons. Others faced the wrath of pro...

Dems’ momentum builds to impeach Trump, Pelosi hits rioters

By LISA MASCARO, MARY CLARE JALONICK and ZEKE MILLER WASHINGTON (AP) — Momentum built among Democrats on Saturday for a fresh and fast push to impeach President Donald Trump, even as the House speaker accused his backers who violently invaded the Capitol of choosing “their whiteness over democracy.” Nancy Pelosi’s remark came as Rep.

Republicans can no longer ignore the reality of Donald Trump

SACRAMENTO >> After watching Wednesday’s otherworldly events — a violent seize of the United States Capitol by pro-Trump mobs who were incited by the president — I was left thinking of a quotation from “1984” and “Animal Farm” author George Orwell: “To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” That should be the enduring slogan of the Trump era. We’ve all seen what Donald Trump was about long before he entered politics — and yet large swaths of the Republican Party and publi...
