New testimony by a cooperating witness directly implicates Mexico's army in the disappearance of 43 college students in a 2014 incident that continues to haunt the country, according to a newspaper report Wednesday. The newspaper Reforma said the witness, presumably a gang member identified only as “Juan,” alleges soldiers held and interrogated some of the students before turning them over to a drug gang. The students’ bodies were then either burned at a local crematorium or dissolved in acid or caustic solutions and dumped down drains, the witness said.

Bloomberg/GettyOn Wednesday, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, and in the afternoon officially began the process of rolling back or undoing a slate of Donald Trump’s policies and directives. But at his private Florida club Mar-a-Lago, the former president was already plotting a possible return to Washington, D.C., and calling around to close allies in part to ask if members of his own party were trying to screw him out of a future comeback.Once ensconced in his new home base, the twice-impeached former commander in chief began making phone calls to ask questions about a potential Senate impeachment trial and if some Republican lawmakers will vote to bar him from ever again holding the office of the presidency, according to two people with knowledge of the calls. He also inquired about what lawyers would be good to place on a potential legal team to fight back in a Senate proceeding.The Senate has still not received the article of impeachment that passed a week ago in the House, so no date for a trial has been set, but a trial would determine whether the president is guilty of, per the article of impeachment, “willfully [making] statements to the crowd that encouraged and foreseeably resulted in lawless action at the Capitol” on Jan. 6.Sen. Lindsey Graham also told reporters on Wednesday afternoon that he’d just gotten off the phone with the now-former president.In his final two days in office, Trump had assured confidants that he was still weighing making another run for the White House, provided he isn’t barred from doing so, according to two individuals close to Trump. “They still love me,” he said behind closed doors, referring to Republican voters, on Tuesday, one of the sources recounted.But as the sun began setting on Inauguration Day 2021, even some of Trump’s former top lieutenants and administration officials had no desire to express any nostalgia for the presidency that had just ended, nor did they want a Trumpist revival in 2024.Asked to reflect on the past four years and what he thought of the Trump era now that it’s over, Dan Coats, the former director of national intelligence under Trump, would only say, “I’m not going to delve back into all that [but] I’m looking to the future and hoping things will improve as we get through the virus and we got a new administration. We’ll see what happens.”As Air Force One coasted to Florida, Trump thanked staff and other pro-Trump passengers for what they’d done for him, smiling and posing for some photos and selfies. On Wednesday, former President Trump attempted to put on a happy face for the cameras and for his adoring fans, but he still seemed to his former and current advisers like a depressed, or at least slightly broken, man.‘I’m About to Puke’: QAnon in Chaos as Biden Takes OfficeAnd although Trump kept an eye on cable news inaugural coverage on the presidential plane’s TVs, according to two people familiar with the matter, he landed before Biden was officially sworn in.“I thought he looked a little sad. It was a very emotional morning, for sure. People were sad to see the president leave. These were his true supporters,” said Stephen Moore, an informal economic adviser to President Trump who attended his farewell ceremony on Wednesday morning. “[But] I was glad to be there this morning to see the president off.” Moore said he still believes that Trumpism is “going to be an important part of the Republican message for years to come.”Still, the day prior to the 45th U.S. president’s departure from Washington power, Trump let it be known to aides and close associates that he still had no intention of taking the high road. Behind closed doors on Tuesday, Trump predicted that Biden’s inauguration festivities would be “boring,” and joked that he wasn’t sure his Democratic successor would even be able to get through his inaugural speech without fumbling his words, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter.As the rollback on Trump’s policies began, some of his top policy advisers showed signs of insecurity about the preservation of their agenda. “Today, [President Biden] pledged to be a president for all Americans. It’s unclear how all Americans are served by opening travel from terror hot spots, proposing a giant amnesty, or halting the installation of security barriers along the Southwest border,” Stephen Miller, formerly President Trump’s senior policy adviser and architect of much of his draconian immigration regime, posted to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.Elsewhere, the preservation of Trump’s legacy did not appear to be off to a good start, at least as far as Trump and his loyalists would be concerned. The biography webpage for the new and official Trump presidential library released on Wednesday, said in part, “In 2021 President Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for having incited an insurrection against the government of the United States.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The European Central Bank will keep its easy money policy unchanged on Thursday but hold the door wide open to further stimulus as the spreading second wave of COVID-19 dims an already weak outlook. Having extended stimulus well into next year with a massive support package in December, ECB policymakers are keen to pass the baton to governments and fiscal policy to keep the euro zone economy afloat until normal business activity can resume. But fresh lockdowns, a slow start to vaccinations across the 19 countries that use the euro, and the currency's strength will increase headwinds for exporters, challenging the ECB's forecasts of a robust recovery starting in the second quarter.
Insurance firm Aviva is closing three UK offices and reducing the size of others as it makes flexible working a permanent feature beyond the pandemic. The FTSE 100 firm is to close two offices in Broadland Business Park in Norwich and another in York by the end of March. It is not, however, abandoning any of its 14 locations in the UK and no jobs will be lost, with both Norwich and York retaining one office in each of the city centres. The firm said is seeking third-party occupiers for the two Broadland offices - which hosted 1,500 staff - as soon as possible. Aviva aims for all of its 16,000 employees in the UK to be able to work from an office if they would prefer to and expects most to do so at least one day a week, on a rotational basis. It said plans to create a more flexible work environment have been in place “for some time”, and employees are being consulted in the process. The transition, however, has been accelerated by the outbreak of coronavirus which has seen workers across the country abandon the commute and turn their homes into work spaces. “The way we use our office space is changing significantly. As our people continue to work in a new flexible way we want our offices to inspire creativity and collaboration. Our intention is to invest in our sites to provide a more vibrant, inspiring and flexible workspace for our people,” Aviva said in a statement. “We are combining office space in some locations and reducing the space in others. We are not leaving any town or city where we currently have a presence”. “The next steps are to continue engaging with our people across these different locations, working with them to build the best working environment to support their needs, the needs of the business and our customers”, it added.
Record closing highs for all three major Wall Street indices on Wednesday - the same day Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States. Wall Street was relieved with the inauguration going off without a hitch, despite the threat of unrest. Liz Miller is president of Summit Place Financial Advisors. "The inauguration is actually very important. We did see all the major indices sort of dipping around 11 o'clock going into it, and then it's coming out of that rather smooth transition, at least compared to what was expected and those who were enthused by the messages of hope in the future, driving the major indices to new highs into the afternoon." By the closing bell: The Dow rallied 257 points. The S&P 500 jumped 52. The Nasdaq surged 260. Politics could only take partial credit for the rally. Netflix was, by far, the star of the day. The streaming media giant, which has been besieged by a growing list of new challengers, said it will no longer need to borrow billions of dollars to finance its TV shows and movies. The main reason: it continues to take in millions of new paying subscribers. Netflix ended last year with more than 200 million paying customers worldwide. Shares of Netflix surged 17 percent to an all-time high. Netflix's quarterly results fueled enthusiasm for other tech companies like Google parent Alphabet - who have yet to report quarterly results. Alphabet shares jumped to a record high as well. In other high-profile earnings, Morgan Stanley, the last of the big U.S. banks to report, smashed estimates thanks to strength in its trading unit. Procter and Gamble, one of the world's largest consumer products companies, boosted its full-year sales guidance for the second time after demand for its cleaning products remained at an elevated level due to the health crisis.
