Outgoing President Donald Trump and his family were not among the 143 11th-hour pardons issued shortly after midnight on Trump's last day in office, leading many to fret that he could still issue secret "pocket pardons" that only come to light when the recipients are charged with crimes. The flurry of pardons had some breathing a sigh of relief that Trump hadn't included himself in this latest batch, and while others noted that the day was still young, MSNBC host and Congress Nerd Lawrence O'Donnell raised another concern. read more

Sen. Mitt Romney: "My fellow Senator Ted Cruz and the co-signers of his statement argue that rejection of electors or an election audit directed by Congress would restore trust in the election.

Congress, not voters in the respective states, would choose our presidents. Adding to this ill-conceived endeavor by some in Congress is the President's call for his supporters to come to the Capitol on the day when this matter is to be debated and decided. This has the predictable potential to lead to disruption, and worse. I could never have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world. Has ambition so eclipsed principle?" read more
