    Senate Majority Leader Charles SchumerChuck SchumerFormer DHS heads blast Republicans for stalling Binden nominee Mayorkas How will an impeachment trial unite Americans? Humanist Report host criticizes 'conservative Democrats:' They 'hold more power' than progressives MORE (D-N.Y.) on Thursday warned that Democrats were willing to go-it-alone on the next coronavirus relief package, potentially starting the process as soon as next week. Schumer, speaking from the Senate floor, said that it was the "preference" of Democrats to work with Republicans on a sixth coronavirus relief package, but that if GOP senators wanted to move too slowly, or go smaller than Democrats think necessary, they will move more aid without GOP support.   "The dangers of undershooting our response are far greater than overshooting. ... So the Senate as early as next week will begin the process of considering a very strong COVID relief bill," Schumer said from the Senate floor. He added that if...

    Gov Cuomo says he will start vaccinating people immediately, as soon as next week, once the vaccine is approved Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York state may receive 170,000 doses of Pfizer's vaccine this weekend and that if approved, he'll start dishing them out to nursing home residents and healthcare workers as soon as next week.  The vaccine has still not yet been approved by the FDA but that could come as early as tomorrow.  Then, Cuomo's own panel of experts will review it to ensure it is safe before rolling it out.  He will then distribute the doses across the state.  New York City will get 72,000 doses and everywhere else will get amounts that correlate to their local populations.  First in line will be nursing home residents who are considered high risk. Then, it will roll out across all healthcare workers and essential workers, before being made...

It's still unclear where the FTC may choose to bring a case — either in federal court or before its administrative law judge. If it chooses to bring the case in-house, it cannot combine its lawsuit with the states. Both the FTC and the state AGs, led by New York's Letitia James, have been investigating Facebook since last year. Though the full scope of their...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2018. Based on unnamed sources, Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman at The New York Times report that Donald Trump could move as quickly as next week to name his nominee to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Trump made clear with a Saturday morning tweet that he wants to move fast. “We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!” He didn’t give any specific timing for “without delay.” Before the election? He surely wants this in hopes that, if nothing else, the death of Ginsburg and his choice to undo much of her decades-long efforts to bring justice to marginalized people will...
