McConnell, a Republican, said the plan will give “roughly $500 billion” in aid, including money for schools and health care, unemployment benefits, and funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, according to Roll Call. The proposal will also have protections for businesses, health care providers and schools from coronavirus-related lawsuits — but it has little chance of passing the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives and becoming law.

An Estonian intelligence official with knowledge of Russian intelligence operations says the Hunter Biden computer email scandal hints at a Russian disinformation operation.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court has been a major point of contention between Republicans and Democrats since President Trump made the call last month, primarily because of its proximity to the November election, which was the reason the Republican-led Senate blocked then-President Obama's nominee in 2016.
