I would let Mohr people purchased government sponsored health insurance as President elect Biden should start receiving daily intelligence briefings similar to the one that's presented to President Trump. But so far this has not happened. NPR's Greg Marie explains. Why This tradition of providing intelligence briefings to the president elect dates back more than half a century, according to David Priest, a former CIA officer. We've had the solid tradition since the 19 sixties, when the president's daily brief was first created. That he sitting president has offered it to the incoming president.

This covers everything from office space desks and computers to intelligence briefings. Greg Marie NPR NEWS Washington The Food and Drug Administration is approving a new treatment for covert 19.

The Vatican has issued a lengthy report critical of the role of three papacies over an ex cardinal. The official was elevated despite allegations of decades of sexual misconduct. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports. Most of the blame falls on Pope John Paul, the second Pope Francis ordered the investigation following allegations made by a former altar boy in 2017 that the now defrocked Theodore McCarrick groped him when he was a teenager in New York. The report states that numerous bishops and Popes downplayed or dismissed rumors about McCarrick. The most striking revelation is that Pope John Paul, the second a saint since 2014 appointed McCarrick, archbishop of Washington in 2000, despite a letter from the late You, Your Cardinal John O'Connor. O'Connor said the movie was imprudent because McCarrick was known to invite seminarians to sleep in the same bed with him. The report implies. John Paul's experience and Communist Poland convinced him. Rumors about priests are used to damage the Catholic Church. Sylvia Poggioli. NPR NEWS Rome On Wall Street, the Dow is up 104 points.
