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

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...

By Henry Ren | Bloomberg Bed Bath & Beyond has stopped selling products from the bedding company My Pillow due to slow sales.

Parler reappears with help from Russian-owned security service

By Nate Lanxon and Amy Thomson | Bloomberg Parler, the free-speech social network, reappeared with the help of a Russian-owned web security service as the website hunts for a way around bans that took it offline earlier this month. “Our return is inevitable due to hard work, and persistence against all odds,” Chief Executive Officer John Matze wrote in a new post, the latest since Amazon Web Services stopped hosting the site and it was banned from Apple Inc. and Google’s app stores. “Despite the...

Yellen faces a new role: Salesperson for the nation’s economic policy

Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen on Tuesday steps into a new role following more than a quarter-century in government: salesperson for economic policy after years of defending Federal Reserve thinking and actions. The Senate Finance Committee’s 10 a.m. hearing Tuesday is likely to feature topics from foreign-exchange policy to taxes, but it will also serve as the first congressional forum where lawmakers will vet President-elect Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief plan. Yellen will ...

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...

Impeachment comes full circle for L.A. Rep. Adam Schiff

A year ago Wednesday, Rep. Adam Schiff was gearing up for the battle of his political life. President Donald Trump had just been impeached in the House, and Schiff was preparing for marathon arguments in the Senate chamber, where he would lead the case to convict the president and remove him from office. The rest is American history: Conviction failed — and a year like no other ensued: A pandemic killed hundreds of thousands in the U.S. The death of George Floyd set off  a massive social justice...

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...

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...

Most SoCal Republicans in Congress failed the country on Wednesday

America’s institutions endured. Despite the disgraceful attack on the United States Capitol by a deranged mob stirred up by Donald Trump, the state-certified Electoral College votes were counted, and the election to the presidency and vice-presidency of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris was finalized. This ugly chapter of American history must never be repeated. To move forward, Americans, especially those on the right, must not shy away from the truth. It is true that many supporters of the presid...

Social platforms flex their power, lock down Trump accounts

By DAVID KLEPPER and MATT O’BRIEN After years of treating President Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric with a light touch, Facebook and Instagram are silencing his social media accounts for the rest of his presidency. The move, which many called justified following Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, is also a reminder of the enormous power that social-media platforms can exercise when they choose. Facebook and Instagram said Thursday they will bar Trump from posting at least until t...

Better decisions governments can make in 2021

It’s the beginning of a new year. It’s almost the beginning of a new presidential administration, too. In theory, now is a perfect time for some resolutions: to start fresh, fix the mistakes of the past or do what we never got around to doing. In that spirit, I offer some advice to the Biden administration; Congress; and state and local governments. State and local governments should reopen schools. That many schools are still not providing in-person instruction is unforgivable. We’ve known for ...
