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...

Alex Padilla, California’s first Latino senator, on needing to ‘walk and chew gum’ in Washington

By Jennifer Medina, The New York Times As Kamala Harris steps into her role as vice president and out of her Senate office this week, the Democrat Alex Padilla will become the first Latino senator from California, a state where Latino residents comprise 40 percent of the population, and will be one of six in the Senate. Pacoima native Padilla, who has been California’s secretary of state since 2015, is heading to Washington at a time when the country — and California — is deeply mired in the pan...

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 ...

Kamala Harris prepares for central role in Biden White House

By ALEXANDRA JAFFE | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Kamala Harris will make history on Wednesday when she becomes the nation’s first female vice president — and the first Black woman and the first woman of South Asian descent to hold that office. But that’s only where her boundary-breaking role begins. With the confluence of crises confronting Joe Biden’s administration — and an evenly divided Senate in which she would deliver the tie-breaking vote — Harris is shaping up to be a central player in...

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...

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...

Los Angeles native Amanda Gorman will be youngest poet to read at presidential inauguration

When Amanda Gorman reads one of her poems during the installation of Joe Biden as 46th president of the United States, the 22-year-old Los Angeles native will become the youngest poet ever to appear in a presidential inauguration. Gorman, while young, is no stranger to sharing her work on significant stages. Even before she was named the nation’s first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate in 2017, she’d been invited to the White House during the Obama administration. Among those for whom she has re...

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...

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...

Expecting trouble, Washington locks down ahead of inauguration

WASHINGTON — All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing. There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work. The U.S. Capitol that proved such a soft target last week was visible only through lines of tall, black fence. Two blocks from the White House, a group of uniformed National Guard troops emerged from a tour bus and headed into a...

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...

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...

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, ...

Experts fear violent demonstrations could continue after Biden’s inauguration

This week, the FBI confirmed what experts who study violent extremism and domestic terrorism have said they feared since rioters breached the U.S. Capitol — continued violence before and after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. With a week to go before Biden takes his oath of office, the FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to the Jan. 20 inauguration.

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.

President Trump travels to Texas to tour his border wall

By Priscilla Alvarez | CNN President Donald Trump bookended his administration’s focus on immigration with a trip to his signature border wall on the US-Mexico border, a visit on the heels of a deadly riot on Capitol Hill incited by the President as House Democrats prepare a second impeachment vote. On Tuesday, Trump traveled to Alamo, Texas, near the border, to mark the completion of more than 450 miles of wall — a trip that caters to the supporters who put him in office in 2016 despite heighte...

Justin Sink and Josh Wingrove (Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump rejected any responsibility for the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol by his supporters last week, calling remarks he delivered during a rally outside the White House before the attack “totally appropriate” and warning lawmakers not to impeach him a second time.

President Donald Trump. MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images President Donald Trump was told by an advisor to "think OJ" over the legal issues he could face over the Capitol riot last week, ABC News reported.
