The Latest – NBC News: Biden meeting with COVID team today

President Biden is meeting with his COVID response team today on a new plan to fight the raging omicron variant. The nation topped more than one-million infections yesterday alone, almost double a record set on Thursday. But the count also included a backlog of state cases from the New Year’s weekend. Still, this means the weekly average could come close to 450-thousand cases each day as more than 100-thousand people are currently hospitalized.

While a Texas senator thinks President Biden could be impeached if Republicans take back the House. Ted Cruz talked about that on his podcast yesterday. He put GOP odds of winning the House in November at 90-ten and 50-50 to retake the Senate. Four House Republicans filed impeachment articles against the President in September over his handling of the border and troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.
