New WH Press Secretary @jrpsaki @PressSec says all of Biden's 1st day executive actions were cleared by 'career staff' of Office of Legal Counsel at Justice Department

Quoted @RobStutzman

Listening to @jrpsaki give a normal and more than competent WH press briefing sounds like a symphony after the last four years.

Worth noting that the California statehouse press corps had these kinds of briefings with gubernatorial spokespeople prior to the arrival of Govs. Brown and Newsom. Would be great to see us to get back to this, even via zoom, in the near future.

Also: the conviction TRUMP is set to wipe from ELLIOTT BROIDY's record is the 2nd time Broidy pleaded guilty to a felony.

He pleaded guilty in 2009 to a felony charge, which was later reduced to a misdemeanor, in an unrelated pension fund bribery case.
