Next Wednesday, when Joe Biden will be sworn in as president, marks the one-year anniversary of the first confirmed case of Covid-19 in the United States. The death toll currently stands at over 384,000.
Today Biden will unveil a coronavirus action plan that centers on a mass vaccination campaign and closer coordination among all levels of government.
Some Democrats believe that responsibility for the assault on the Capitol last week lies not just with president Trump, but with other Republican members of Congress. The Washington Post reports this morning:
New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill said in a Facebook Live broadcast that she saw Republicans “who had groups coming through the Capitol that I saw on 5 January for reconnaissance for the next day.” She said some of her GOP colleagues “abetted” Trump and “incited this violent crowd.”
“I’m going to see that they’re held accountable and, if necessary, ensure that they don’t serve in Congress,” she said.
