In a half-hour speech delivered from Scranton, Pa., Mr. McCarthy seized the themes that President Biden was addressing in a prime-time address.

Mr. Kise is expected to make his debut at a hearing scheduled for Thursday by Judge Cannon. An individual who has knowledge of the matter says, Mr. Kise has a deal to join Mr. Trump’s team and will leave Foley & Lardner to do so. In the past, he has successfully argued cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. As a longtime GOP activist, he served on the transition teams of former Republican Gov. Rick Scott and current GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.
