President-elect Joe Biden's energy secretary pick, Jennifer Granholm, has disclosed millions of dollars of investments in corporate and private business interests, including millions in companies linked to the energy industry, as lawmakers prepare to consider her nomination. The former two-term Michigan governor and her husband, Daniel Mulhern, reported owning from $4.4 million up to $16.8 million in corporate interests and private assets like residential real estate properties, according to her new financial disclosure report released by the Office of Government Ethics on Monday. Among her biggest assets are $1 million to $5 million worth of stock options she can exercise in Proterra Inc., a company that designs and manufactures zero-emission electric buses and trucks and provides battery-electric buses and charging systems to municipalities in several states, including California, Virginia and Washington state.
When the Senate reconvenes Tuesday for the first time since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol building, they'll be returning to a Capitol complex that looks entirely different than how they left it: Closed roads, security checkpoints, a building lined in 7-foot fences that are topped with razor wire and patrolled by 20,000 National Guard members, many of whom are bunking in the office buildings. When President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are sworn into office on Wednesday, they'll usher in a new period of total Democratic control in Washington, marked, in part, by the eventual passing of the Senate gavel from Republican Leader Mitch McConnell to Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. It is not yet entirely clear when Schumer will formally take control of the body.
A man allegedly lived undetected inside the secure area of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport for three months, living off of food provided to him by strangers, before he was arrested this weekend. "While this incident remains under investigation, we have been able to determine that this gentleman did not pose a security risk to the airport or to the traveling public," the Chicago Department of Aviation said in a statement Monday. "We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners on a thorough investigation of this matter."
On the campaign trail, Joe Biden guaranteed his White House would "look like the country."

Half of the president-elect's Cabinet picks are women, and the majority are people of color.
As the United States continues to work through deep political divides during Martin Luther King Jr. Day, newly elected Missouri Rep. Cori Bush encouraged Americans to "have hope." Bush, a single mother of two, has spoken openly about struggling to makes ends meet while experiencing homelessness and domestic violence. On "The View's" special episode honoring King's life and legacy Monday, she shared a message with Americans who feel hopeless after the Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill.
Who will preside over the second Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump remains a key open question as lawmakers prepare to begin the unprecedented proceeding as soon as Inauguration Day. The U.S. Constitution says that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court "shall preside" over trials of the President of the United States, but it does not specify what happens if the president has left office. No ex-president has ever faced a Senate trial.

A dedicated detective refused to stop digging after she solved the brutal murder of a chemist in California. Then, by reopening an earlier case, she helped a genetic genealogist to discover the identity of a girl the killer claimed was his daughter, and then, the killer’s true identity. Known by a lengthy list of aliases, Terry Peder Rasmussen has been dubbed “The Chameleon Killer” for assuming so many different identities as he infiltrated families and destroyed lives in New Hampshire and California.
At least 21 states are activating National Guard troops in preparation of possible attacks this week. The FBI is warning that armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols as well on Capitol Hill after a group called for "storming" state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings on Inauguration Day. In Michigan, where armed militia breached the state Capitol in May, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that the National Guard would be activated from Monday to Wednesday to provide additional security and crowd control measures.
Russian authorities have extended the detention of opposition leader Alexey Navalny in a hastily organized court hearing on Monday despite growing international condemnation over his arrest a day earlier at a Russian airport. Navalny was detained by police at passport control at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport as he landed in the country for the first time since his poisoning with a nerve agent last summer. Navalny appeared in a court hearing organized inside a police station on the outskirts of Moscow.
President Donald Trump on Monday prepared to depart the White House and Washington on Wednesday in dramatic fashion, but in his final days he continued to stay isolated and out of sight. The president is set to depart Washington early morning Wednesday morning ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s swearing-in, making him the first president in over 150 years to skip the inauguration of his successor in a ceremonial transfer of power. While Trump's sendoff is expected to have extra flourishes, it's not uncommon for an outgoing president to have a final departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, although it usually takes place after the outgoing president has departed the inauguration ceremony for their successor, something Trump will not do.
In the days before President Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director -- one of the most defining moments of his presidency -- Trump penned a scathing letter to Comey that has never been publicly released. In fact, the four-page letter was never even sent to Comey because White House lawyers quickly determined it should never see the "light of day," Special Counsel Robert Mueller later recounted. Mueller reviewed the May 2017 letter as part of his wide-ranging investigation and mentioned parts of it in his final report, but the letter has remained largely hidden from the public nearly four years later.
President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani apparently won't be on Trump's impeachment team. Giuliani, who has been leading the president's efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl late Sunday that will not be part of Trump's legal team for the upcoming Senate impeachment trial due to his involvement in the Jan. 6 Washington, D.C., rally that led to the attack on the U.S. Capitol building.

A newborn giraffe has died in a tragic accident shortly after it was born when it was stepped on by its own mother. The incident occurred at the Nashville Zoo and was announced on Jan. 16 when the zoo’s pregnant giraffe named Nasha went into labor as thousands of people watched the event live online during a live feed. Shortly after labor, however, complications with the baby giraffe began to develop and medical intervention was required from Dr. Matthew DeLisle from the Tennessee Equine Hospital and the zoo’s veterinary team who were able to eventually successfully deliver the calf.
When Joe Biden takes over the presidency on Jan. 20, it won't be an infectious disease doctor or scientist leading his federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, it will be Jeff Zients, a 53-year-old well-connected businessman known in Washington circles for his "Mr. Fix-It" ability to navigate thick bureaucracies. As the nation enters the next coronavirus chapter, all eyes are on what Biden's team will do differently in a pandemic that's spun rapidly out of control.
Exercise is good for your health, but researchers are now finding that better cardiovascular fitness might save you from a trip to the hospital if you are diagnosed with COVID-19. According a new study from Henry Ford Hospital, people with better cardiovascular fitness may be less likely to be hospitalized with the virus. This study looked at 246 patients who had undergone a heart exercise test known as a "stress test" and then stayed in touch with those patients to see which ones were later diagnosed with COVID-19 and hospitalized.
