(Studio: Jim Sciutto; West Palm Beach: Kaitlan Collins) Whether President Trump is doing anything about the coronavirus pandemic as the vaccine distribution is far behind the rollout goals, but he is uninvolved putting it up to the states with a briefing on the issue coming tomorrow, the issue of raising the stimulus payouts to $2,000 while Senator Mitch McConnell is killing the bills discussed.

(Studio: Jim Sciutto) Live discussion held with CNN's Paul Begala & Scott Jennings. [BEGALA - offers views on McConnell's political move to checkmate the Democrats via a poison pill in the bill, what it could mean for the Republican Senate candidates in Georgia, on what Democrats should do here: maybe hold up the defense bill or vote for Democrats for the Georgia Senate, on how vulnerable we are to a terrorism attack.] [JENNINGS - offers views on why the Democrats are so opposed to a voter fraud commission, on the Defense Department refusing to share information with the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden.]
