As Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is sworn in as Speaker of the House for the second time in her career, one reporter pointed out how different times were during her last swearing-in.

Following Ginsburg's death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed that Trump's nominee would receive a vote, but did not specify whether it would occur before the election or during the "lame duck" session of Congress that occurs before the 2020 election victors are sworn in.
