3. When the 2 GA senators are seated some time in the next week or so

I think I saw the GA secy of state has a week after the 15th to finalize the certifications.

5. it's unclear....

first, harris and the 2 ga senators need to be sworn in, and then a leadership vote needs to be held.

harris is automatic, but mitch has the power of the schedule on everything else. He can drag his feet on swearing in the new senators, and then he can refuse to schedule any votes or floor debates, making it difficult to force a leadership vote.

It could be weeks or even months if he decides to shut the senate down procedurally.

6. January 22nd if I have it right. We get VP Harris on the 20th

but have to wait until the 22nd to get the Georgia senators. Then Mitch becomes a post turtle.

7. When Warnock and Ossoff are certified within the next week

and when Kamala Harris is inaugurated on the 20th, then Schumer attains the position of Senate Majority Leader.
