    Dr. Anthony Fauci dismissed Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) pledge to have him investigated if Republicans take control of Congress in the 2022 midterms. CNN’s John Berman asked Fauci a series of questions on the spread of monkeypox and President Joe Biden’s recovery from Covid in an interview on Tuesday. Eventually, Fauci was asked about Paul stating the GOP would target him in their investigations of the Biden administration’s Covid response, provided Republicans take the House and the Senate after November. “One way or another, if we are in the majority, we will subpoena his records and he will testify in the Senate under oath,” Paul said. His comments were picked up by The Hill, which noted that Paul is poised to become chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee after the retirement of Senator Richard Burr (R-NC). Fauci told Berman “there’s no reason” to investigate him, “but if they want to, go ahead.” My records are an open book. They are talking about things that are really bizarre, like crimes against democracy by shutting down the government....
    Richmond police Chief Bisa French returned to work after a third-party investigation found she committed misconduct by making “a threat of harm” and taking a cellphone and a bank statement from a family member, this news organization has learned. According to a letter written by then-acting Chief Louie Tirona, the city took “appropriate action” in light of the misconduct finding. The letter doesn’t specify, citing a section of the state’s public records act that keeps certain information about law enforcement personnel private. The investigation, conducted by attorney Leslie Ellis at the city of Richmond’s request, found that French threatened a man she believed was her 18-year-old family member’s pimp, but whom the relative maintains was her boyfriend. Several similar misconduct allegations were found to be unfounded, not sustained, or French was exonerated. “The finding of sustained means the investigation disclosed sufficient evidence to establish that the act occurred and that it constituted misconduct,” Tirona wrote. Tirona’s letter is dated July 16, 2022, just one day after French’s return to work was announced. French had been on leave since October 2021,...
    GOP officials expressed alarm over a recent leak that saw explicit media involving first son Hunter Biden circulating online, deeming the president’s disgraced son a threat to “national security” while calling for a full-scale investigation over the matter. Following an alleged hack by 4chan users into Hunter Biden’s personal iCloud account over the past week and the subsequent spread of its content across social media, Republicans took to Twitter to blast the president’s son over the explicit and damaging material.

    A whistleblower has revealed that the FBI investigated concerned parents after Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the agency to combat “threats of violence” against school board administrators last year. In October of 2021, Merrick Garland issued a memorandum that expressed concern about a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools.” “Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” Garland wrote at the time. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.” To combat this alleged problem, Garland announced a 30-day plan that would have the FBI working with U.S attorneys across the country to discuss “strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff, and will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment, and response.” The memorandum arrived less than a week...

    Donald Trump dismissed New York Attorney General Letitia James' attempt to have him held in contempt as 'little more than a contrived publicity stunt' in a late Tuesday court filing. The former president's attorney was responding to an earlier filing by James in which the New York Democrat accused Trump of failing to comply with a subpoena in her tax fraud investigation into his family real estate empire.  James asked a judge to hold him in contempt and fine him $10,000 for every day he did not turn over a set of documents linked to his and to the Trump Organization's financial dealings. Trump's attorney Alina Habba countered that the ex-leader had complied with the subpoena in full and just did not have the papers James was looking for -- passing the buck to the Trump Organization, whose attorneys have said they've already produced 6 million pages' worth of documents. After a 'dutiful search' for what prosecutors were seeking, Trump's attorney said he 'simply did not have any of the requested documents in his personal possession or custody.' Instead, Habba...

Police launched an investigation during the week of Dec. 6 after learning of multiple threats against Peirce Middle School in West Chester, some of which were posted on social media, West Goshen police said in a Dec. 15 release. Investigators later determined that the threats were not credible. They did not specify if the threats were gun-related. Police were able to arrest three juveniles in three separate incidents with help from the West Chester Area School District. The investigation is ongoing, and police say they are not ruling out the possibility of additional arrests.
    An investigation has been launched at a Western Massachusetts high school after threats were reportedly made targeting the building on social media. In Hampden County, officials said that there were multiple posts made on social media that could be perceived as threats to Westfield High School, prompting an investigation at the building. Parents have reportedly been notified of the situation, which is under investigation by school and police authorities. The nature of the threats - which were made on Instagram - has not been disclosed. “We are aware of the social media posts regarding Westfield High School,” Westfield police investigators announced. “We are investigating the incident in conjunction with the School Department. “At this time, we do not believe there is a credible threat, however, we are maintaining an increased police presence at the school while we continue to investigate.” Check back to Daily Voice for updates.
    A social media threat is making the rounds through several Hudson Valley school districts, authorities announced. In Orange County, threats of gun violence at unspecified schools in the Cornwall and Monroe-Woodbury districts have been reported, though they were ultimately deemed not credible. Police said that all threats have been investigated by area police and were ultimately determined to be a hoax. In response to the threats, police beefed up security at both districts and put extra security measures in place as a precaution. 
    Some school officials in Westchester are on high alert after students reportedly made comments deemed to be threatening in nature. Eastchester Schools Superintendent Robert Glass sent a message out to the community following an incident at the Middle School involving statements made by at least one student that was dubbed “concerning.” Glass said that “no weapons were involved and no one was injured, nor was anyone in danger at any time." “However, school administrators were made aware of some concerning statements by students,” he noted. "These statements were taken very seriously. Students' families, the school security officer, and law enforcement were notified immediately." The nature of the statement nor threat was not disclosed by the school or police officials. Glass said that a threat assessment was conducted, and the investigation found that there were no weapons in the school building and all students and staff members were safe during the entire incident. Officials said that there are no further details that can be provided as the incident remains under investigation.

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said Thursday on her show “Deadline” that right-wing media, former President Donald Trump and guns were fueling the domestic extremism threat level. Wallace said, “A domestic extremism threat unlike any other before in our country’s history looms over every facet of American life right now, today. It is fueled in-part by disgraced ex-president who is still lying about the fact that he lost the 2020 election fair and square. That disgraced ex-president now passes his days trying to stymy the bipartisan investigation into the worst attack on Congress in centuries, one that of course happened on his watch, and that he incited.” She continued, “The committee’s investigation is playing out even as the domestic extremist threat to Congress and congress members remains. As the DHS notes in its latest terrorism bulletin made public yesterday. ‘Foreign and domestic threat actors have called for violence against elected officials, political representatives, government facilities, law enforcement, religious communities, or commercial facilities, and perceived ideological opponents.’ This threat is emboldened and empowered by a right-wing disinformation machine that includes members of Congress, people like Arizona...

    A Georgia official is speaking out with more context about former President Donald Trump's infamous phone call demanding that they "find" enough votes for him to overturn the presidential election. In his newly released book, titled "Integrity Counts," Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) said that he believed Trump's call to him was a veiled threat. "I felt then — and still believe today — that this was a threat," Raffensperger writes. "Others obviously thought so, too, because some of Trump's more radical followers have responded as if it was their duty to carry out this threat." The release of the book comes as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) continues her effort to investigate Trump's attempts to influence the outcome of the election. Last week, Raffensperger conducted an interview with The Associated Press where he discussed his book and briefly weighed in on Willis' investigation. Although staff members in his office have been interviewed, he revealed he has not spoken to her yet. "They've talked to some of our folks here. We sent all...
