iPhone : House Dems won’t receive private briefing today from GSA administrator Emily Murphy about her refusal to ascertain Biden election. Murphy has still not responded to their invitation as of this hour, per Dem sources.

iPhone : “I need a team ready on Day One to help me reclaim America’s seat at the head of the table, rally the world to meet the biggest challenges we face, and advance our security, prosperity, and values,” Joe Biden says in a statement.

“This is the crux of that team.”

iPhone : Biden’s NatSec/foreign affairs cabinet picks:

State: Antony Blinken
DHS: Alejandro Mayorkas
NSA: Jake Sullivan
DNI: Avril Haines
UN Amb: Linda Thomas-Greenfield
Climate envoy: John Kerry buildbackbetter.com/the-administra…

Twitter Web App : "Chachi may love Joanie, but he certainly doesn’t feel that way about Sen. Mitt Romney." sltrib.com/news/politics/…

Twitter Web App : Biden filling his cabinet with loyalists is another way in which he leans into his "not Trump" mandate.

Trump had relationships with almost none of the people he appointed to his cabinet. Many met him for the first time in their initial interviews.

Twitter Web App : The broad theme of Biden's appointees so far is that they're loyalists who he trusts and have been with him for a long time.

That can inform our inferences about who he'll appoint to other positions, roughly speaking, and what his administration will look like ideologically.
