WASHINGTON — Quite suddenly, if only for a freeze-frame moment, everything old was new again, starting when Joe Biden stepped outside into his day and Donald Trump vanished inside Air Force One for his flight to private life in Florida. Democratic and Republican leaders worshipped together at church, just one tradition dusted off.

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.

Trump’s behavior has led to today’s inaugural backdrop: More than three-quarters of Republicans tell polls...

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, ...

As vice president, California native Harris could cast the deciding vote on everything from President Joe Biden’s Cabinet nominees to federal judges. “She’ll probably spe...
