Harvey Weinstein was indicted Monday on sex crimes charges by prosecutors in Los Angeles, per AP.

The state of play: The new indictment came just hours after the start of Weinstein's separate New York trial on similar charges.

  • The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Weinstein would be charged with raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in 2013.

The big picture: In the New York trial, Weinstein faces a maximum of 25 years in prison for the charges of rape and a criminal sexual act.

  • He also faces a charge of predatory sexual assault for committing a serious sex crime against more than one person, which carries a life sentence.

The childless vaccine

It'll likely be a long time before children are vaccinated against COVID-19, even though vaccinating kids could eventually play an integral role in reducing the virus' spread.

The big picture: None of the leading contenders in the U.S. are being tested for their effectiveness in children. Even once one of them gains authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, there will only be a limited number of available doses.

Progressives bide time for a Biden victory

Progressive Democrats want to beat President Trump so badly that they're tabling their apathy about Joe Biden — organizing hard to get him into office, only to fight him once elected.

Why it matters: That's a big difference from 2016, when progressives’ displeasure with Hillary Clinton depressed turnout and helped deliver the White House to Trump.
