    Karine Jean-Pierre said Sunday that President Joe Biden has still not been briefed on the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago nearly a week after agents descended on Donald Trump's Florida estate. The president's press secretary said Biden has 'not discussed' the incident at all with FBI or Justice Department officials – and reminded viewers that the current FBI Director Christopher Wray was nominated by Trump. 'Even to this point, President Biden has not been briefed about any of this?' ABC News anchor Jonathan Karl asked Jean-Pierre on Sunday. 'Not been briefed. We have not interfered,' the press secretary said in her interview on the This Week program. 'Not discussed it at all?' Karl pushed, and Jean-Pierre confirmed. 'I'm going to tell you, Jonathan, we have learned about all of this the same way the American people have learned about this, through public reports, through your reporting and every other reporter who has talked about this,' she explained. 'That's how we have learned about what is happening,' Jean-Pierre said during her first Sunday program interview since becoming Biden's top spokesperson earlier this...
    Ever since the FBI raided former President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort home, cable news experts have been tripping over themselves to insist that the raid was “not a raid.” Here’s where things stand: Monday’s raid on Trump’s Florida residence has shaken up the political landscape and dominated a news media hungry for details. Amid a public campaign to baselessly smear the FBI over the search, Trump has reportedly embarked on a private campaign to learn who is talking to authorities. Two Trump lawyers who were on the scene during the search  — Christina Bobb and  Lindsey Halligan — have said that the warrant they were shown was partly sealed, and Trump has thus far declined to release it. But according to bombshell leaks from government officials to Newsweek’s William Arkin, the search was the result of a “confidential human source.” The raid has also created a lot of violent chatter and other threats from Trump supporters — and from elected Republicans. And due to a combination of factors, the non-Fox News cable stations have taken to hosting experts who insist the raid was not a raid, and some of their on-air personalities have adopted the posture. It seems to have...
    A former Louisville cop, the only to face charges for the botched  no-knock warrant raid that ended with Breonna Taylor's death on March 13, 2020, was acquitted of all charges on Thursday.  Brett Hankison, 45, was found not guilty of three counts of wanton endangerment for firing shots that ripped into a neighboring apartment after the jury heard five days of witness testimony. Hankison was the sole officer charged with a crime two years later as a result of the raid where officers broke into the apartment to bust Taylor's boyfriend for a drug crime.  Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired at police, who he believed were intruders, shooting Sgt. John Mattingly in the leg, who along with officer Myles Cosgrove and Hankison, returned fire.  A total of 32 rounds were fired by police, with six of the shots fired by Mattingly and Cosgrove striking Taylor, 26, killing her. Walker was left uninjured.  Hankison's acquittal means no officer involved in the shooting has been found guilty of a crime after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron failed to charge Mattingly and Cosgrove with...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden said on Thursday that he was not given a heads-up that the apartment and office of Rudy Giuliani were set to be raided Wednesday, an extraordinary move in the Justice Department's ongoing probe of former President Donald Trump's onetime attorney.Asked if he was given notice ahead of the raid, Biden emphatically told NBC News, "I give you my word, I was not."He added, "I made a pledge: I would not interfere in any way, order, or try to stop any investigation the Justice Department had -- no way. I learned about that last night when the rest of the world learned about it, my word. I had no idea this was underway."Biden said he had not been briefed into any Justice Department underway and was "not asking to be briefed," going on to criticize the Trump administration for "politicizing the Justice Department so badly.""That's not the role of the president to say who should be prosecuted, when they should be prosecuted, who should be not prosecuted, that's not the role of the President. The Justice Department is...
    Terrified police officers, panicked senators and very threatening assailants. Here is what we can see on the new images released during the second day of the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Democrats wanted to strike hard and recontextualize the violence of the events that took place on January 6, when supporters of Donald Trump sowed chaos on Capitol Hill. Unpublished images taken by surveillance cameras. We can see Senator Mitt Romney forced to turn around and take refuge inside the Capitol because of the events. Very disturbing images and which aroused strong emotions in the senator who explained not to realize that the crowd was so close to him. In another video, Mike Pence can be seen being rushed to safety. Democrats go so far as to claim that the attackers would have killed him if they had found him. In yet another excerpt, supporters of Donald Trump can be heard searching for Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Her team were forced to hide in a conference room and call for help....
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The outrage over Anjanette Young’s treatment by Chicago police continues to boil over. CBS 2  Investigator Megan Hickey has the latest voices: including aldermen, state lawmakers and even the lieutenant governor now weighing in. Several lawmakers said they could barely stomach watching the body cam video from the raid, and they’re joining the CBS 2 two-year long push to try to fix the system. Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33rd) said she was upset. “I have to say that I am still feeling sick from watching that video. It was incredibly triggering,” Rodriguez-Sanchez said, adding that it was triggering because Anjanette Young is handcuffed, naked and helpless as police officers wrongly entered her home with guns drawn. Illinois State Rep. Kam Buckner (D-26) praised Ms. Young’s willingness to share her story. “Thank god that Ms. Young had the foresight and wherewithal to continue to fight this,” Buckner said. “And thank God that this network was able to not be bullied into into silence when it comes to this.” State Senator Robert Peters (D-13) and State Representative Buckner said they’re now...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Wednesday said the video showing Anjanette Young being handcuffed naked by Chicago Police, which CBS 2 aired this week, was appalling. Young stood naked before heavily armed Chicago Police officers who had just wrongly burst into her home during a bad raid in February 2019, just a few months before Lightfoot took office. She was handcuffed and pleaded with the officers, telling them they were wrong. Mayor Lightfoot on Wednesday called the video showing that incident appalling – and apologized for the first time, after her office tried to keep you from seeing the video. The story by CBS 2 Investigator Dave Savini is now making news across the nation. Late Wednesday afternoon, a fired-up Mayor Lightfoot called the video “traumatic,” “horrifying,” and a “colossal mess.” CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov held Mayor Lightfoot’s feet to the fire on Wednesday. The mayor said Wednesday that she was “blindsided” – though there is a caveat that on Tuesday, the mayor seemed to have a total grasp of the case. And critics said it...

    By Kirsty Needham SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian politician whose home and office were raided by the federal police and an intelligence agency said the probe was part of a foreign interference investigation focused on China and he was not a suspect and had done nothing wrong. Australia passed foreign interference legislation in 2018, spurred in part by a classified Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) report on Chinese influence activity, sparking anger from Beijing. Early on Friday, federal police searched New South Wales (NSW) state politician Shaoquett Moselmane's home and parliamentary office in an investigation Prime Minister Scott Morrison linked to foreign interference. "The investigation is into certain other people allegedly advancing the goals of a foreign government, namely the People's Republic of China," Moselmane told a news conference on Monday "My allegiance is first and foremost to Australia." An ASIO representative said on Friday the agency had conducted "search warrant activity" as part of an investigation that "does not relate to any specific threat to the community". ASIO did not provide any further details of the raids or the...
