    Washington (CNN)In response to the FBI search of former President Donald Trump's home in Florida on Monday, Trump and his allies in Congress and right-wing media have returned to his preferred strategy for communicating in a crisis: say a whole bunch of nonsense in rapid succession. From his battles against impeachment to his effort to limit the political fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic, Trump has attempted to flood the zone with such a quantity and variety of lies, conspiracy theories and distractions that Americans will tune out, turn away or cease to know what is true and not. And he has regularly been joined by a large cast of eager defenders.Baseless conspiracy theories about the searchUsing his familiar just-asking-questions style of promoting conspiracy theories, Trump posted on his social media platform on Wednesday a suggestion that the FBI could have planted evidence. His legal team had already been suggesting the same thing. One Trump lawyer, Alina Habba, said on Fox on Tuesday: "I'm concerned that they may have planted something; you know, at this point, who knows?" Republican Sen. Rand...
    (CNN)On the final morning of his short life, 22-month-old Cooper Harris was up early, at 5:15, an hour before sunrise in the Atlanta suburb where he lived with his parents. His father, Justin Ross Harris, a 33-year-old web developer, brought the still-groggy toddler into the bed he shared with Leanna Taylor, his wife of eight years. Just under three feet tall, with wisps of blond hair framing his cherubic face, Cooper snuggled with mom and dad -- and nodded out again. Before the sun rose over the Cobb County city of Marietta that morning on June 18, 2014, Harris had already sent or exchanged online messages -- some sexual in nature -- with at least four young women, one of them 17. At 9:26 a.m., after a leisurely "daddy/son breakfast" at Chick-fil-A -- his son's belly "full of sausage biscuit," in the words of Cooper's mom -- Harris closed the door of his Hyundai Tucson SUV. Carrying a Chick-fil-A cup and his work bag, Harris walked to his cubicle at the Home Depot offices, leaving Cooper -- who he was...
    During Friday’s edition of Jesse Watters Primetime, the Fox News host suggested Hunter Biden will be indicted and then “probably” pardoned by his father, President Joe Biden. He further stated Biden will not run for reelection in 2024. Jesse Watters structured the claim so as to avoid citing any source or sources in particular. “We all see that emperor Joe Biden has no clothes,” he said. “Joe Biden isn’t perfect. Joe Biden’s not making anybody happy. He’s not delivering for Republicans or Democrats or anybody. And his polling numbers are terrible. And Democrats are about to get wiped out and America knows it.” He went on to note Biden’s low approval rating and said he is losing ground among various racial demographics. Then suddenly he said, Primetime is hearing Hunter will be indicted. Biden will probably pardon his son and announce he’s not running for reelection. Watters did not elaborate. He used this claim to pivot to a discussion about potential replacements for Biden as the 2024 Democratic nominee. Hunter Biden’s business dealings abroad have come under scrutiny and his...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Crystal is not ready to say goodbye to “Mr. Saturday Night.” The comic icon has turned his comedy film into a Broadway-bound musical and hopes to open it next year with him reprising his film role as Buddy Young Jr., a bitter, old insult comic chasing a last laugh. “There’s something about this guy and that world that I love,” Crystal tells The Associated Press. “I think that we’ve brought this story and this character to a better place than I could have imagined even.” Crystal has written the stage adaptation with his film’s co-writers — Lowell Ganz and Marc “Babaloo” Mandel — and married it to music by Jason Robert Brown and lyrics by Amanda Green. John Rando will direct. “What the music has done to elevate the story and to propel the story and bring out dynamics in the characters is quite amazing to me,” Crystal says. “It’s something I couldn’t be more excited about, honestly.” He will star opposite Tony Award-winner Randy Graff, Chasten Harmon and David Paymer, who will recreate...
    Republicans are watching with trepidation former President Donald Trump’s accelerated political activity ahead of next year’s midterm elections. Many continue to view Trump as the unquestioned leader of the party, and it is difficult to call his recent flurry of interviews and communications a comeback when he never really left. “Former presidents tend to just fade away, but not 45,” said Republican strategist Bradley Blakeman, who worked for former President George W. Bush. “[Trump] enjoys the tug and tussle even when he is not on the ballot.” FIVE REASONS BIDEN’S APPROVAL RATINGS HAVE TAKEN A POUNDING GOP insiders would love to see Trump help turn out the base next year and would like even better to retain his competitiveness in the Rust Belt — the key to his Electoral College upset in 2016 and maintaining some suspense about President Joe Biden’s win last year — in 2024. But even some who are sympathetic to Trump worry that he hasn’t gotten over his 2020 loss, continuing to claim that the election was stolen from him, and is too focused on...
    Remmy valenzuela He spoke for the first time about the complaint against him that his cousin, Carlos Armando, and his girlfriend made. A few weeks ago, the singer’s relatives accused him, both in front of the authorities and on social networks, of having caused them severe injuries after a beating that gave them. “It is a family matter and I feel that my family has always been hidden or I have always kept it on the sidelines. “Things have happened, but not what people say, well what the media say, not what is speculated, but I do ask there a little respect to the public please, which are familiar things“, Said in an interview to the program Despierta América. The interpreter denied having been a fugitive from justice and shared why he was silent about the accusations. “I waited so long for my peace of mind, for the tranquility of my family, for the tranquility of my people, I mean, let’s calm things down, to the whole roll, and so here we are“. “It is the first time that...
    Embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation on Tuesday, telling constituents he was “doing the right thing for you” while claiming that the behavior some women found offensive he intended as "endearing." "In my mind I've never crossed the line with anyone," he said in a televised announcement. The move follows a blistering report from the state’s attorney general that Cuomo had sexually harassed several women, which prompted calls from top Democrats – including President Joe Biden – that he step down. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, will become New York’s first female governor when she serves out the rest of Cuomo’s term, beginning in two weeks. Cuomo insisted that, in his mind, he’d done nothing wrong.  "There are no excuses," he said during his announcement. The third-term governor then proceeded to offer some: “I thought a hug and putting my arm around a staff person while taking a picture was friendly, but she found it to be too forward. I kissed a woman on the cheek at a wedding and I thought I was being nice. But...
    The closing of the market in the MLB brought in winning teams and losing teams. Without a doubt, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in the first group of these. The inclusion in his payroll, via transfer, of Trea Turner and Max Scherzer were the closure that every fan expected. In the private competition with the San Diego Padres (they had incorporated Adam Frazier’s second baseman and announced the almost certain closing of negotiations with the capital’s own starter) and the San Francisco Giants (on the last day they gave the clarion call by incorporating Kris Bryant) brought the best part.

    By Kaitlan Collins, Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown | CNN President Donald Trump received an unsettling warning on his final Saturday night in the White House. Huddled for a lengthy meeting with his legal advisers, Trump was warned the pardons he once hoped to bestow upon his family and even himself would place him in a legally perilous position, convey the appearance of guilt and potentially make him more vulnerable to reprisals. So, too, was Trump warned that pardons for Republican lawmakers who had sought them for their role in the Capitol insurrection would anger the very Senate Republicans who will determine his fate in an upcoming impeachment trial. White House counsel Pat Cipollone and another attorney who represented Trump in his first impeachment trial, Eric Herschmann, offered the grave warnings as Trump, his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner listened. Other lawyers joined by telephone. They all told Trump he should not pardon himself, his family or any GOP lawmakers in a prospective manner unless he was prepared to list specific crimes. Cipollone and former Attorney General William...
    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump has discussed issuing pardons for himself and his children with new urgency since the attack on the US Capitol, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell CNN.One source familiar with the conversations says there is a belief that a Trump "pardon of family and kids, is more likely and more urgent because a pardon could stave off prosecution."However aides and allies are concerned over the public perception of a pardon following the January 6 riot, which led to the deaths of five people.Trump White House Pence and Trump finally speak after post-riot estrangement House Democrats plan to vote Wednesday to impeach Trump White House counsel and Barr warned Trump not to self-pardon MAP: Full presidential election results Sources tell CNN there is dissent inside the West Wing from those appalled by the attack, many of whom are pushing up against a President whose main concern is protecting himself and his family.The riot at the Capitol raises the potential of new legal exposure for the President, his allies and family members who participated in the...

    President-elect Joe Biden pushed back on the idea that he was merely building a “third Obama term” with his cabinet picks so far during an interview with NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. Speaking with Biden on Tuesday night, the NBC News host noted all the “familiar faces” in his administration’s announced cabinet officials, many of whom held key deputy positions during the Obama-Biden presidency. “What do you say to those who are wondering if you’re trying to create a third Obama term?” Holt asked. “This is not a third Obama term because we face a totally different world than we faced in the Obama-Biden administration,” Biden said. “President Trump has changed the landscape. it’s become America First. it’s been America alone. we find ourselves in a position where our alliances are being frayed. It’s a totally — that’s why I’ve found people who join the administration and keep points that represent the spectrum of the American people as well as the spectrum of the Democratic Party.” Holt then asked if Biden would consider appointing a Republican who publicly supported and voted...
    By CALVIN WOODWARD and HOPE YEN, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says Mexico is paying for the wall (it isn’t), health care choice for veterans came from him (it didn’t) and his tax cut stands as the biggest in American history (nowhere close). These are among his touchstones — the falsehoods that span his presidency — and he's giving them another go in the final days of his relentless campaigning. He's got fresher false material, too, claiming “incredible” numbers in the pandemic response despite record infections, rising deaths and a statement from his chief of staff Sunday that the government cannot bring the coronavirus under control. He warned darkly of voting fraud in the Nov. 3 election without offering evidence that malfeasance is in play. In weekend rallies, Trump also portrayed Democratic rival Joe Biden as the helmsman of a Marxist party who lined his own pockets with $3.5 million via Moscow. This didn't happen. A look at rhetoric from the weekend: THE VIRUS TRUMP: "Even without vaccines, we’re rounding the turn. It’s going to be over."...

    A person familiar with Trump's condition immediately contradicted what Trump's doctor said. Donald Trump's doctor on Saturday painted a rosy picture of the president's health as he remains hospitalized for coronavirus treatment. But that assessment was immediately contradicted by a person familiar with Trump's condition, who said the situation had been very concerning. Even the sunnier briefing by Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley and other doctors at Walter Reed Medical Center raised more questions than it answered, including about whether the president has ever required supplemental oxygen and exactly when he fell ill According to a person familiar with Trump's condition, some of Trump's vital signs over the past 24 hours were "very concerning." The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care.
    An Arkansas farmer who reportedly 'confessed' to murdering a jogger he was said to have been 'familiar' with had won the county's Family of the Year in 2016.  Quake Lewellyn, 28, was charged with one count of capital murder after the body of Sydney Sutherland, 25, was discovered in Newport on Friday, according to online court records.  Lewellyn is said to have confessed to the crime, according to the parents of Sydney Sutherland’s boyfriend Alex. Cathy Hood wrote: 'They have arrested the person that has committed this horrible crime. He has admitted doing this. Also pray for his family as they have to face what has happened.' In 2016 Lewellyn, a Tuckerman High School graduate, was named as Jackson County Farm Family of the Year alongside his father Michael and grandfather Donald.  Quake told arkansasonline.com: 'I’ve always worked on the farm. I began driving a yellow Ford, … hauling seed for dad. We all have our own farms, but we help each other out.' Dad Michael added: 'We are a true family farm.

    According to Chris Jericho on the latest Saturday Night Special podcast, he had no idea who AEW’s newest recruit Eddie Kingston was prior to the wrestler’s match with Cody Rhodes on a recent episode of Dynamite. As quoted by Sportskeeda, the former World Champion confessed that he even mistook Kingston for another wrestler when he first learned about the bout taking place. “I think it’s great that Eddie Kingston got signed, very very excited for him. I’d never heard of him. I had never heard his name, maybe read his name but it didn’t really register. As a matter of fact, when Cody first said Eddie Kingston, in the back of my mind I was thinking Eddie Edwards….so I didn’t really know him.” While Jericho wasn’t familiar with Kingston until recently, he is now a fan of the performer. During the conversation, he even took the time to praise his promo skills and the way in which he presents his character. According to Jericho, Kingston is “one of those guys who has that vibe of being a tough guy which...

    At one point in “Irresistible,” Jon Stewart’s new political satire, a cable news anchor tosses a question to an absurdly overstuffed panel of 12 analysts, each in their own little “Brady Bunch” square. Immediately they start shouting at once, drowning each other out. It’s just a quick, amusing bit, but for diehard Stewart fans it may evoke a memorable moment: his 2004 appearance on CNN’s “Crossfire,” where he accused the debate show’s hosts of being “partisan hacks” who were hurting America by imposing an artificial red-blue divide on every issue. And it’s essentially that same message that the former Comedy Central host is trying to get across in 2020 with this, his second feature (after the accomplished Iran-themed “Rosewater”). Here, he takes aim not so much at the media — well, not ONLY the media — but the whole institutional structure via which we elect our leaders, and the corrosive role money plays in it. So what else is new, you may ask? And what about, you know, everything else that’s happened the last few years? Stewart’s enduring...
    Rayshard Brooks — the black man who was shot and killed by police outside an Atlanta Wendy’s nearly two weeks ago — was remembered Tuesday as a hard-working, family man whose death “will not be in vain” during a tearful funeral service at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. “We really should not be here today,” the Rev. Bernice A. King, the youngest daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told grievers — many dressed in all white and face masks reading “Black Lives Matter” — at the famed church in Atlanta where her father preached in 1960 until his assassination in 1968. “This did not have to happen to Rayshard. There’s so many ways that Friday, June 12 could have ended, and a police killing did not have to be one of them,” King said as she spoke in the house of worship where Brooks’ gold casket stood near the center of the altar flanked by white floral arrangements. King, addressing Brooks’ family and children, continued, “Although I did not have a chance to meet Rayshard, I am here...
    Photograph dated May 28, 2020 of a patient waiting in the Shock Room unit of the Posadas Hospital, in Buenos Aires (Argentina). Every day more patients arrive and a growing tension is felt in the corridors and in the rush of the health personnel. The Posadas hospital, a state giant in charge of the health of 7 million people in its area of ​​influence, is on the battlefront against the coronavirus in the populous urban cordon that surrounds Buenos Aires, one of the main sources of contagion in Argentina. The priority today is to save lives, limit the transmission of the virus and take care of its personnel in the face of an increasingly close spike of infected. EFE / Juan Ignacio Roncoroni A patient suspected of being sick with coronavirus died after family members disconnected the artificial respirator that was keeping him alive to connect an air conditioner. The 40-year-old man died on June 15 at a hospital in the state of Rajasthan, India, where he was admitted to the intensive care unit due to his respiratory problems. Tests...
    (CNN)In his first rally in more than three months, President Donald Trump repeated a bunch of false claims he has made before. Trump's return to the rally circuit, in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, arena that was not full, featured familiar inaccurate accusations about Democratic opponent Joe Biden, about his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, about health care and a variety of other subjects. In a speech that lasted for more than an hour and forty minutes, Trump also called for the burning of the US flag to be illegal, claimed victory over a recent loss in the Supreme Court, and spent 10 minutes on a story about walking down a ramp. Here's a look at what Trump got wrong. West Point ramp Trump engaged in an extensive discussion of his recent speech at West Point on June 13, and his careful descent down a ramp afterward.Read MoreThe President explained that the reason he was so careful walking down the ramp was that he was wearing "leather bottom shoes" and worried that he might slip due to the lack of traction.

    Green Bay’s Christian Kirksey believes his history with his new defensive coordinator will help the veteran linebacker make a smooth transition as he switches teams for the first time. Kirksey signed with the Packers in March after he was released by Cleveland, where he spent his first six NFL seasons. Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was the Browns’ head coach in 2014-15. “Honestly, as soon as I opened the playbook, man, I was so familiar with it and his defense,” Kirksey said Wednesday in a Zoom session with reporters. The unusual nature of the pandemic-imposed virtual offseason could hinder players who changed teams and haven’t gotten accustomed to their new surroundings. Kirksey is counting on his comfort level with Pettine to help as the 27-year-old enters a critical stage of his career. Kirksey was one of the NFL’s most prolific tacklers from 2016-17, but he’s had trouble staying on the field lately. He played only seven games due to a hamstring injury in 2018. Kirksey appeared in just two games last year before a torn pectoral muscle knocked him...
