Tennessee Gov. Lee [FINALLY!!] acknowledges Biden as president-elect

https://www.wjhl.com/news/regional/tennessee/tennessee-gov-lee-acknowledges-biden-as-president-elect/amp/

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Republican Gov. Bill Lee says his administration has begun working with the transition team of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

Lee’s remarks Friday marked the first time the governor has acknowledged that Biden will be the next president.

Lee told reporters that he had spoken with members of Biden’s transition team the previous day about Tennessee’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The governor was among many Republicans nationwide who refused to acknowledge that Biden had won, as President Donald Trump continuously repeated unfounded claims of election fraud.

Slow on the uptake much? I womder if he will receive death threats now?

Daily Beast: Patriots' Bill Belichick Turns Down Trump's Medal of Freedom Offer

https://www.thedailybeast.com/new-england-patriots-coach-bill-belichick-declines-trumps-presidential-medal-of-freedom-offer

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will not accept President Trump’s award of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he announced in a statement Monday. The statement, first announced by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, comes after media reports on Sunday that Trump had invited the six-time Super Bowl winner to the White House to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor. “The tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” Belichick wrote in the statement. The coach and the president are longtime friends, with the former writing a congratulatory note to the latter after his 2016 election. Belichick’s public break with Trump comes on the heels of several companies freezing the president out after he helped incite a riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Judge Christopher Tuite ordered Johnson to surrender his passport, submit to substance abuse tests, surrender all firearms and wear a tracking device. Under the terms of his release, he would not be allowed to travel outside the Middle District of Florida, unless it's to Washington, D.C., for court cases.

Johnson also would have a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

Nancy said to give Pence until the end of her 60 Min segment tonight

Tweets by Hugo Lowell:

Scooplet: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is said to intend to give VP Pence until Sunday night to invoke 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, per source — and will otherwise move forward with impeachment.


Source familiar with Pelosi’s thinking says should Pence not invoke the 25th Amendment by the conclusion of her CBS interview Sunday night, she’s prepared to green-light bringing articles early next week.


Dem leaders weighing whether to bring two articles of impeachment. Usual caveats but as of this morning, talks centered on Raskin-Lieu-Cicilline’s Incitement of Insurrection and Omar-AOC’s Abuse of Power.
