Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Thursday sought to move lawmakers one step closer to debating and potentially passing roughly $4 trillion in new federal spending, announcing his plans to hold a key chamber vote on a still-forming infrastructure deal next week. … A key component financing their tentative legislation — increased federal efforts to collect unpaid taxes — seemed in political peril Thursday amid sustained GOP opposition to the idea.” Washington Post
  • “In the waning weeks of Donald Trump’s term, the country’s top military leader repeatedly worried about what the president might do to maintain power after losing reelection, comparing his rhetoric to Adolf Hitler’s during the rise of Nazi Germany and asking confidants whether a coup was forthcoming, according to a new book by two Washington Post reporters.” Washington Post
