    Washington Post investigative journalist Carol Leonnig offered a meticulous breakdown of how the January 6 Committee’s most shocking revelations have centered around Cassidy Hutchinson’s word against Tony Ornato’s. Leonnig appeared on Morning Joe to talk about how Donald Trump’s allies are defending him from the explosive testimony of former Mark Meadows aide Cassidy Hutchinson. Hutchinson testified that Trump had a violent altercation with Secret Service agents as he demanded to go to the U.S. Capitol on January 6, though Ornato, Trump’s former security chief, and agent Bobby Engel are reportedly preparing to dispute Hutchinson’s side of the story. Asked about the Trump defenders seizing upon this “denial” as Joe Scarborough put it, Leonnig said Ornato’s “situation is not so great” because he broke the usual conventions of his position in order to function as an “acolyte” and right-hand man to Trump. “This is a person who worked as President Trump’s security detail leader, the number one guy protecting the boss. And the boss liked him so much, he installed him in a political White House job,” Leonnig explained. “That broke...
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Frank Gore has signed a one-day contract with the San Francisco 49ers and announced his retirement from the NFL. Gore spent the first 10 years of his 16-year career with the 49ers and returned to end his career as one of the most prolific runners in league history. READ MORE: Body Of 19-Year-Old Drowning Victim Found In Sacramento River Near ColusaGore joined the 49ers as a third-round pick in 2005 after overcoming torn ACLs in both knees in college at Miami. Despite that injury history, Gore became one of the most durable backs in his career, rushing for at least 500 yards a record 16 times, with nine seasons of at least 1,000 yards rushing and five Pro Bowl bids. “One of the very first things I told the 49ers organization when they drafted me in 2005 was that they got the right guy,” Gore said in a statement issued through the team. “I knew early on that I wouldn’t let my college career define me in regards to injuries, and that I would have...

    President Joe Biden spoke in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday to mark 100 years since the horrific Tulsa race massacre. The president said they’re in Tulsa “to shine a light, to make sure America knows the story in full.” Biden talked in some detail about the “hate, resentment, and vengeance in the community” when a white mob attacked attacked Black residents and destroyed buildings. Up to 300 people are believed to have been killed in the massacre. “Untold bodies dumped into mass graves. Families who at a time waited for hours and days to know the fate of their loved ones are now descendants who have gone 100 years without closure,” he said, “but as we speak, the process of exhuming the unmarked graves has started.” Biden held a brief moment of silence for the victims and said, “My fellow Americans, this was not a riot. This was a massacre. Among the worst in our history, but not the only one, and for too long forgotten by our history.” He talked about a “clear effort to erase it from our memory”...

    It was once as celebrated as Paul Revere's ride. In 1842, missionary Dr. Marcus Whitman made the treacherous trek from the Pacific Northwest to Washington D.C. to plead with President John Tyler to keep the territory out of grasping Great Britain's hands. Tyler was convinced and decided not to exchange the land for a cod fishery. Five years later, the doctor, his wife, Narcissa, and 11 men were murdered by members of a Native American tribe, the Cayuse, at the behest of the British Hudson's Bay Company and Catholic missionaries. The killings became known as the Whitman massacre. Henry Spalding, a fellow Protestant missionary, later on spent years spreading the heroic story, which was printed by the US Senate in 1871 and then in books and newspapers like The New York Times. Whitman became a martyr who helped forge the continental United States by 'saving' Oregon, Idaho and Washington state. In the 1890s, he was lauded by many as a founding father and likened to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. But there were problems with this once well-known history: it...

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — An all-Black officiating crew worked an NFL game for the first time in league history when the Los Angeles Rams faced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. Referee Jerome Boger led the crew, which also included umpire Barry Anderson, down judge Julian Mapp, line judge Carl Johnson, side judge Dale Shaw, field judge Anthony Jeffries and back judge Greg Steed. When the NFL announced the crew was being assembled last week, league executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent hailed the move a “a testament to the countless and immeasurable contributions of Black officials to the game, their exemplary performance, and to the power of inclusion that is the hallmark of this great game.” Five members of the crew work together regularly. Johnson and Steed joined the group for Monday night’s matchup between NFC playoff contenders. The members of the crew have a combined 89 seasons of NFL experience and have worked six Super Bowls. Bucs coach Bruce Arians, who’s been supportive of diversity in hiring throughout the league, applauded the decision. “Way too...
    Diego Maradona's surgery on a blood clot on his brain has been declared a 'success' despite worrying issues caused by his long history with drugs and alcohol, it has been announced. The footballing legend, widely regarded as one of the best to ever play the game, had a subdural hematoma - an accumulation of blood between a membrane and his brain - according to his personal doctor Leopoldo Luque. His PR team have now confirmed that the major surgery he had on Tuesday, less than a week after his 60th birthday, went well and he is now on the road to recovery.  Two of Maradona's five children were quick to take to social media to reassure their father's fans, with Jana writing: 'Now life is feeling a little lighter.' A few minutes later, Dalma posted: 'I just got out of the clinic I just want to thank everyone for the constant displays of love for my dad, my sister and me. Thanks to everyone who prayed for him!' Mr Luque, a neurologist, said the problem likely was caused by an...
    In early September, Palantir, a controversial tech company set to go public later that month, began its investor day webcast with a smoothly-edited scene of Alex Karp, the company's CEO, roller-skiing on a path in a mountain forest. Pumping his ski poles, Karp heads off-path up a hill until he stops before the camera. Looking directly into it, he launches into a monologue about Palantir's investor day, reflecting the optimism that earned the company an estimated $22 billion valuation in late September, despite never turning an annual profit in its seventeen-year-history. The mountain setting alone seems to explain why Karp chose downtown Denver for the company's new headquarters, which Palantir moved into in August.

    It’s not everyone who wants to understand the motivations of a relative who was a white supremacist, but Edward Ball is not everyone. Ball’s 1998 National Book Award-winner Slaves In the Family, was a brave look at his family’s history of South Carolina plantation life and slave ownership. Now, in his latest, Life of a Klansman, he delves into the history of Polycarp Constant Lecorgne, his great-great-grandfather, a Louisiana carpenter who fought for the Confederacy and later became a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Trying to understand what made Lecorgne tick was, for Ball, not a particularly easy task. “It was difficult,” says Ball, who was interviewed by The Daily Beast by phone from his home in Connecticut. “We have a habit of condescending to people who lived before our own generation and pity those people who were unlucky enough to miss out on the enlightened life we have achieved. I had to struggle against this in an effort to get inside the mind of this man and narrate what drew him into the movement that was established to...

    Things never to do at the doctors office Asymptomatic? You might get coronavirus again June 25 in sports history: Fundamentally speaking, he was great Here's a look back at notable sports news on June 25 through the years: © John McDonough/Icon Sportswire Tim Duncan, the first pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, and Tim Robinson were a dynamic 1-2 punch for the Spurs. Tim Duncan's nickname, "The Big Fundamental," was a nod to his solid, all-around game. Sure, he may have been a tad boring, but the Class of 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame member could hoop with the best. This date was special for Duncan and San Antonio for two reasons: In 1997, the four-year star at Wake Forest was selected by the Spurs with the first pick of the draft, and two years later, "TBF" was the main reason why San Antonio won its first NBA title. Duncan was the first senior taken No. 1 in the draft since Larry Johnson of UNLV went to Charlotte in 1991. He joined another big man in the Spurs' lineup,...
