The facts were indisputable: President Trump had lost. But what happened over the next 20 days was an earnest — if bumbling and chaotic — effort to overturn the election. From @PhilipRucker , @jdawsey1 , @AmyEGardner  + me.

Trump uses power of the presidency to try to overturn the election and stay in office, by @PhilipRucker , @AmyEGardner  + @jdawsey1 .

Trump could announce a 2024 run as soon as the end of this year — but no matter what, he plans to freeze the Republican Party, and place himself squarely at its center. Sunday paper, w @PhilipRucker  + @jdawsey1 .

From Spicer to McEnany...the Trump administration ends as it began: With a lie about crowd size.

NEW: A volunteer on Kushner's coronavirus response effort was so worried by what they saw that they filed a complaint w House Oversight. W/ @yabutaleb7 

Trump just marched CDC director Redfield out to claim he was misquoted by the WaPo. But in fact, Redfield just confirmed the entire story — below — said he was quoted 100 percent accurately.

Is...the crowd literally applauding because the president just... drank water...with... just one hand?

If Trump had actually tested negative for Covid — and we have no indication that he has — it seems like something he’d want his doctor to put out, clearly and asap. Or something to which he’d give the TWEET TREATMENT. And nothing like that has happened yet.
