Republican Senate Majority Approves Shortening Debate and Proceeding with Voting to Confirm Amy Coney Barrett as Supreme Justice on Monday Afternoon | “We are not going to control the pandemic,” admits the White House

There are nine days until the presidential elections in the United States and more than 50 million people have already voted. The number of close associates of Vice President Mike Pence who have tested positive for COVID now rises to five, in what appears to be a new outbreak of the disease in the White House. The test made on Saturday to the vice president and his wife after learning about the outbreak in their environment were negative. Pence has not suspended any campaign rallies despite the fact that one of those diagnosed is his chief of staff. He maintains his trip this Sunday to North Carolina, and tomorrow to Minnesota, according to his office. The outbreak again raises doubts about the security protocols in force at the White House, which, according to The New York Times, has tried to keep the information secret. “We are not going to control the pandemic,” Mark Meadows, White House chief of staff, said on CNN. “We are going to control the fact that we will have vaccines and treatments.” The pandemic cannot be stopped, he added, “because it is a contagious virus like the flu.”

On Capitol Hill, the Senate is moving forward with President Donald Trump’s proposal for Supreme. This Sunday, the Republican majority approved, amid protests by the Democrats, to limit the debate in plenary session and proceed with the vote for the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the same Monday afternoon.
