Biden focuses on cabinet elections amid Trump's efforts to prevent transition

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will focus on shaping the White House team on Tuesday.

One of Trump’s legal challenges will be heard in a federal court in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, where another legal setback will already destroy long-term expectations.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Bran will argue in Trump’s campaign case. The state’s top election official is trying to prevent Biden from certifying victory.

After narrowing the scope of the case, the Trump campaign focused on the claim that it had inappropriately allowed voters to fix their erroneous ballots.

To stay in power, Trump must annul the results in at least three states where he is competing in an unprecedented way, and there is no legal way to do so.

Elsewhere, many of Mr. Biden’s senior campaign officials discuss their role in the transition and the new administration that will take office on January 20. A source says some of the roles will be announced by Tuesday.

Representative Cedric Richmond, the national co – chairman of Mr. Biden’s campaign and former chairman of the Black Caucus in Congress, is expected to join the administration in senior capacity, while Steve Richetti, Biden’s close adviser for a long time, the person said. Richmond’s move will open his Louisiana congressional seat.

Earlier this year, the media reported that Jen O’Malley Dillon, the first woman to lead the Democratic presidential candidacy as Mr Biden’s campaign manager, would be elected Deputy Chief of Staff.
