[ Editor’s Note: Biden is stuck in a situation where he needs a lot of things to be initiated right away for the administration to get rolling, and of course the Republicans are trying to slow that process down.
The more quick successes Biden can get on the board the starker the positive contrast between the new and the old administration. Trump already left the vaccine and overall Covid response in disarray by ignoring it to spend all of it time on floating The Steal scam, as that is all that he cared about.
Next week will be eaten up with the impeachment trial, which will be very likely to result in an acquittal but create an important public record. The subsequent criminal review of the Capitol insurrection will not be a political decision, per the comment that McConnell had made about the Senate’s case where the Republicans will be biased.
That takes us to the story below. Should Biden press to get his DoJ people confirmed or get the judges in first? This seems a no brainer to me because while we are right in the middle of the Capitol attack investigation, the Biden DoJ people have to get into the saddle ASAP to get a full handle on that crime, and many others pending on the Trump gang.
