On today's episode, we hear from many of President-elect Biden's cabinet nominees and future staff during their introductory press conference yesterday. We also cover Scottish Parliament passing a historic bill, as well as the mysterious object found in the Utah desert.
On today's show, we discuss the three states that have certified their election results since yesterday: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Nevada. This finally forced GSA Admin Emily Murphy to do what she should have done 2 weeks ago, but I digress.
We also talk about GM helping California go green, Janet Yellen's impending nomination to be Biden's Treasury Secretary, and the announcement of the first interim Jeopardy host.
Janet Yellen has not been officially announced as Biden’s nominee for Treasury Secretary since she wasn’t in that group that was announced yesterday, but a source with knowledge of the transition plans told the AP that she’ll be his nominee.
UPDATE: Michigan has voted to certify their results!
On this episode of Quick News Daily, we cover the breaking news about Biden's official announcement of the members of his cabinet. The positions he announced nominees for are Secretary of State, National Security Adviser, Ambassador to the United Nations, Secretary of Homeland Security, Director of National Intelligence, and Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (doesn't require Senate confirmation).
I also check in with our neighbors to the north, Canada, regarding the lockdown for the city of Toronto, as well as a moose problem in Alberta. I close out the show by recapping the trip to DC to visit Trump by the Michigan legislature leaders on Friday, what Trump is trying to push them to do, and what would happen if a state refuses to certify their election results (spoiler: almost every outcome is either President Biden or Acting President Pelosi).
BREAKING NEWS: This tweet from CNN's Jeff Zeleny appears to confirm that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy is finally ready to do her job (three weeks late) and sign the papers to begin the formal transition process. If this turns out to be true (if Trump doesn't pull something crazy, because I trust Jeff's reporting), then stick a fork in Donald Trump; he's done.
NEW: GSA has informed president-elect Joe Biden the administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN.
