(WASHINGTON) — This is Day 23 of the administration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Here is how events are unfolding. All times Eastern:

Feb 11, 11:12 am
Biden says ‘some minds may have been changed’ on impeachment

At the top of a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators, Harris and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg on infrastructure, Biden said “my guess is some minds may have been changed” on impeachment after saying he saw the newly unveiled video evidence used at Wednesday’s Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

Biden initially tried to avoid directly answering if he watched any of the new videos, saying he’s focused on seeing through some of his policy priorities, but then admitted he “didn’t watch any of the hearing live” but got up to speed through news coverage.

“I think the Senate has a very important job to complete and I think — my guess is — that some minds may have been changed, but I don’t know,” he said.

Biden’s remarks on impeachment Thursday are the most he’s publicly weighed in on the trial after his administration has repeatedly tried to avoid all questions on the matter and stay focused on seeing through a COVID-19 relief bill.

At 3:45 p.m. the president visits the Viral Pathogenesis Laboratory at the National Institutes of Health, and at 4:30 p.m. he delivers remarks to NIH staff.
