Capitol Report (Jan. 26): Biden’s Chance at a Supreme Court Pick

A U.S. Supreme Court Justice is apparently ready to hang up his robe. President Joe Biden gets to appoint a Supreme Court Justice for the first time, and he made it clear what type of Justice he’s looking to nominate.

We speak to Rick Green, an attorney and former Texas State representative, to find out who Biden might pick and if this will be a unifying moment for the Democrats.

With big parts of Biden’s agenda stalled in Congress, Democrat leadership has shifted their focus to the global economy—specifically when it comes to competition with China. The House just unveiled their version of a new bill that aims to slow China and keep it at bay.

New York Congresswoman Claudia Tenney joins us to discuss how the Chinese Communist Party tried to leverage a loophole in U.S. congressional ethics rules to silence dissent on a Chinese tech company that has ties to persecuting religious groups in China.

The quickly spreading Omicron variant is causing a new peak in U.S. deaths. While hospitalization rates have not increased since the Delta variant, Omicron continues to spread at rapid rates.
