Electoral College votes Monday and Trump selects hard-liner as ambassador to Israel and Obama

Election Day was over a month ago, but the Electoral College will make the results official on Monday. Despite talk of faithless electors deciding to not vote for Trump, so far only one person has signaled his intention to stop Trump. It would take 37 electors to switch their support from Trump to throw the election to the House of Representatives. Plus, Donald Trump has selected David Friedman to serve as ambassador to Israel. Friedman breaks with years of U.S. policy and questions the need for a two-state solution to Mideast peace. And why Barack Obama called the presidential election and news of Russian hacks a “clarifying moment” for Americans.
