    A $10,000 daily fine brought against Donald Trump for failing to produce financial documents in New York Attorney General Letitia James' tax fraud probe begins accumulating on Tuesday.   New York state Supreme Court justice Arthur Engoron held the former president in contempt on Monday and slapped him with the heft fine for failing to comply with a subpoena to turn over several documents to James. The fine will keep accumulating from Tuesday for every day Trump keeps stalling, unless he can make a convincing case that the documents simply aren't in his possession -- which his attorney claims is the case.  But in court on Monday, the judge concluded that Trump lawyer Alina Habba's affirmations that the pages can't be found are 'woefully inadequate' and fail to establish a convincing '"who," "what," "where," "when" and "how" the search was conducted.' He ruled that Trump 'willfully disobeyed' the court's order when he failed to produce the documents or a reasonable excuse as to why, by a previously established March 31 deadline. 'In short, the affidavit provided the Court with no basis to find that...
    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes opened his show Monday by saying the “enemies” of democracy are “plotting in the open” and will not stop “until they’re either successful or some of them are put in prison.” He brought up former President Donald Trump’s speech in North Carolina over the weekend trying to rehash his usual false claims about the 2020 election. More important than that, Hayes said, is “an increasingly militant radicalization against pluralistic multiracial American democracy as a collective project.” He slammed Texas attorney general Ken Paxton for “saying the proverbial quiet part loud” about voting restrictions, and brought up the stunning recent reporting that Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows pushing the Department of Justice to look into some truly bonkers election conspiracy theories. “Think about this for a second. Giuliani, Meadows, all the president’s men, what are they all doing? They’re all attacking free and fair elections,” Hayes said. “Started back in 2016, right? Continued in the run-up to 2020. Then it happened during 2020, then after 2020. Trump was never held accountable for his actions there....
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly proposing to give former President Donald Trump until February to get ready for his impeachment trial in the Senate. McConnell told Republican senators that he would ask Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to give Trump until early-February to give him and his team time to prepare for the trial, Politico reported. The Republican leader said Tuesday that Trump and his allies were responsible for provoking rioters to storm the Capitol and commit acts of vandalism which postponed the electoral college certification process. Schumer made it clear that he will move forward with the impeachment of Trump in a Tuesday speech. In a floor speech, Schumer called Trump’s presidency the most “chaotic and divisive president that can ever be remembered.” He also mentioned three issues he hopes the Senate will tackle in the coming weeks: “a second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the confirmation of President Biden’s cabinet and other key officials, and legislation to provide much-needed, almost desperately-needed COVID relief. ” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) looks on as U.S. President Joe Biden delivers...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump won't be administered a coronavirus vaccine until it's recommended by the White House medical team, a White House official told CNN on Wednesday.The official said Trump is still receiving the benefits of the monoclonal antibody cocktail he was given during his recovery from Covid-19 earlier in the fall.Once Trump moves into a timing window to receive vaccination, he is likely to get his shot at that point, the official added. Trump's situation differs from that of Vice President Mike Pence, who is set to receive his vaccination in the coming days, the official noted. Pence has not contracted the virus, the official pointed out, meaning the vice president's need for vaccination is more pressing. Pence's inoculation is expected to be made public, the official said.The official went on to say the President continues to be open to getting vaccinated. But the official cautioned Trump also wants to make sure frontline medical workers receive the vaccine first. Read MoreThis is a breaking story and will be updated.
    Just throwing this out there, but shouldn't the priority go to people who have been trying to AVOID the virus? On Sunday, The New York Times reported that top White House staffers—specifically, those most in contact with Donald Trump—had been given top priority for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine even though initial deliveries of the vaccine are in such short supply that they are being rationed primarily to front-line healthcare workers. This lasted only a few hours before Trump's Twitter account walked back the news, with a tweeter who sounded not much like Trump announcing: "People working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the program, unless specifically necessary," and that "I have asked that this adjustment be made. I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time. Thank you!" Well that is not Donald Trump writing, that's for damn sure. Donald Trump does not use words like that, or proper capitalization, and certainly does take to Twitter to announce that he has "asked" for an "adjustment" rather than,...
    The Trump legal team just put out a press release that made clear they have no intention of giving up the fight on the results of the 2020 general election, which they are baselessly contesting. The statement was written by Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis and addresses the “Safe Harbor Deadline,” which is the statutory timeline that provides the last day for states to certify election results. This provides a full week in advance of the Electoral College vote, scheduled for December 14th, which ostensibly makes it nearly impossible to change the results. President-elect Joe Biden was projected winner of 306 electoral votes by nearly all media outlets on Saturday, November 1oth. Afterward, President Donald Trump and his team of lawyers have filed dozens of lawsuits in roughly five swing states, though nearly every single one has thus far been overturned. Giuliani was recently hospitalized with Covid-19, and earlier today, reports surfaced that colleague Ellis also had been infected with the potentially deadly contagion. These reports, combined with repeated court decisions against their legal filings and simply running out of...
    Washington (CNN)The Health and Human Services Department will not work with President-elect Joe Biden's team until the General Services Administration makes a determination that he won the election, Secretary Alex Azar said Wednesday, even as public health experts stress that a smooth transition is a critical part of the government's response to the worsening coronavirus pandemic."We've made it very clear that when GSA makes a determination, we will ensure complete, cooperative professional transitions and planning," Azar said at a briefing. "We follow the guidance. We're about getting vaccines and therapeutics invented and get the clinical trial data and saving lives here. That's where our focus is as we go forward with our efforts."Trump White House Trump fires director of Homeland Security agency who rejected President's election conspiracy theories Trump team looks to box in Biden on foreign policy by lighting too many fires to put out Trump scores a long-awaited coronavirus win with vaccines on the way MAP: Full election results Azar was referring to a process known as "ascertainment," a routine recognition by the GSA in the face...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci has no plans to transition his efforts to President-elect Joe Biden when there's still so much work to do in the coming months, he said. Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, said he had not been in contact with anyone from the Biden transition team about his guidance on the coronavirus pandemic. "There’s absolutely no reason and no sense at all for me to stop doing something in the middle of a pandemic that is playing a major role in helping us get out of the pandemic," Fauci told Reuters. Fauci has served on the president's task force since January, even though he and President Trump have sometimes been at odds in their approach to combating the coronavirus. Fauci added that if he were to advise Biden, he would still recommend that people socially distance, avoid crowds, wear masks, and wash hands frequently. “Public health principles don’t change from one month to another or from one administration to another," he said. Fauci has served in six administrations and is...
    President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to concede the 2020 presidential election has delayed the process by which national security information can be shared with President-Elect Joe Biden, the national intelligence director’s office said on Tuesday. According to the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, the General Services Administration must first ascertain the winner of the election, which Trump is contesting, before providing intelligence briefings to the next administration. Biden took questions from reporters for the first time since being projected as president-elect, but the questions that were asked were primarily focused on knocking Trump and Republican lawmakers, who have largely not acknowledged the current outcome of the 2020 presidential election.  Follow below for more updates on the 2020 presidential election.

    President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to concede the 2020 presidential election has delayed the process by which national security information can be shared with President-Elect Joe Biden, the national intelligence director’s office said on Tuesday. According to the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, the General Services Administration must first ascertain the winner of the election, which Trump is contesting, before providing intelligence briefings to the next administration. President-elect Joe Biden speaks Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020, at The Queen theater in Wilmington, Del. (AP) Biden’s press office for comment did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment. Intelligence agencies have given general intelligence briefings -- with the exception of information about covert operations, sources and methods -- to presidential nominees since 1952. Biden started receiving them soon after he became the Democratic presidential nominee. It's unclear if he is still getting them. DESPITE TWEETS, TRUMP WOULD CONCEDE, WORK ON PEACEFUL TRANSITION IF LEGAL FIGHT FALLS SHORT, SOURCES SAY Some presidents have allowed their successors to receive the President's Daily Brief, containing the nation's most sensitive intelligence information.

    Pennsylvania Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is telling voters in his state it may take 'even a few days' to count their votes in a new public service-style ad – as the looming legal battle over the count there takes on a new PR dimension.     'These are unprecedented times. Because of the coronavirus, there were millions of votes cast by mail so it may take longer than usual to count every vote,' he says in a new ad for the nonpartisan group, The Voter Project.  'The folks in our election offices – your neighbors, family and friends are working hard ensuring every single vote is counted,' he says. CNN reports it will air Election Day through the final count – after the Supreme Court ruled Pennsylvania can continue counting mail ballots for three days after Election Day.  'It may take longer than usual to count every vote,' Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is telling residents in an ad paid for by a nonprofit 'So it may take a little longer than we're used to, even a few days, but that's okay,'...

    American Cyclist Quinn Simmons was suspended from his team on Thursday after he tweeted something deemed “divisive,” Breitbart reports. Trek-Segafredo suspended the 19-year-old cyclist for a Twitter response he wrote to Dutch journalist Jose Been that indicated he was a President Donald Trump supporter.  Been tweeted, in a since deleted post, that she hoped “this horrible presidency ends” for her American friends, adding, “if you follow me and support Trump you can go.” Simmons replied to Been writing “Bye” followed by a Black hand emoji. Another Twitter user posted that Simmons was, “Apparently a Trumper.” Simmons replied, “That’s right,” with an American flag emoji. Trek-Segafredo then issued a statement that Simmons would be suspended from the team until further notice. “Regrettably, team rider Quinn Simmons made statements online that we feel are divisive, incendiary, and detrimental to the team, professional cycling, its fans, and the positive future we hope to help create for the sport,” the team wrote. “(He) will not be racing for Trek-Segafredo until further notice.” According to Breitbart, Been said that she felt “horrible” about the suspension. ...
    Protests by the Standing Rock Sioux and other Native Americans were met with police dogs and gas in 2016. In yet another loss for the Trump administration and their incompetent attempts to sweep federal regulations under the rug, a federal judge today ruled that the Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down, and all the oil in it removed, within 30 days. It's a sweeping win, for now, for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others that fought to block the pipeline. The Obama administration had put the construction of the pipeline on hold until an Environmental Impact Statement could be completed; most specifically, Native tribes whose land was being commandeered for the pipeline cited the danger of contamination of vital water supplies. As part of its nullification of anything the Obama administration ever did, the Trump team quickly approved the pipeline without an Environmental Impact Statement. Can't do that, said the judge. It broke the law, and the Army Corps of Engineers wasn't able to properly substantiate its reasons for not doing so. Until it's done, the now-completed pipeline must...
