The Senate has confirmed Christine Wormuth as the first woman secretary of the Army. Wormuth served as a Pentagon policy chief under President Obama and led President Biden’s transition team at the Pentagon.

Meanwhile, Biden is expected to announce his nomination of former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to be the next ambassador to Japan. Emanuel, who also served as a chief of staff for Obama, has faced fierce public backlash for helping cover up the 2014 police killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
