Differences between Inauguration and Usurpation

A duly elected, certified, and sworn in President of the United States appoints senior government officers “by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate”, per Article II Section 2 of the Constitution.

A usurper, who came to power in a putsch, would want to fortify his grip on power as quickly as possible and without the consent of anybody, other than his clique.

Senescent Biden appointed 1,136 government officials on January 20, 2021:

“Despite a truncated transition, the newly elected Biden administration engaged in a vigorous effort to staff the government, so much so that a record-breaking 1,136 appointees were sworn in on Inauguration Day. Transition chair and former U.S. Senator Ted Kaufman boasted that this figure was more than the prior two administrations combined in their first 100 days.“

Notice that the Senate was in session on that day (see the Senate Calendar and C-Span video), and Mr. Biden could not bypass the “Advice and Consent” clause by making recess appointments.
