He added that the United States has been in frequent, direct contact with Russia, including during the last few days to discuss the situation in Ukraine and Putin's actions and threats. Sullivan continued: "Putin remains intent ... on wiping out the Ukraine people that he does not...

    Washington (CNN)Election lies lead to bad outcomes. It's the simple but powerful message the House select committee investigating the attack on the US Capitol is trying to convey through its public hearings. The presentations to this point have offered a string of compelling narratives by focusing on the violence of January 6, 2021, and the officials who helped enable it. But Tuesday's hearing delivered something even more sinister, with state and local election officials trading harrowing testimony about the dangers they had faced operating on the wrong side of former President Donald Trump's lies. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, his chief operating officer Gabe Sterling, Fulton County election worker Wandrea "Shaye" Moss and Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers testified in person and shared accounts of threats and harassment they had faced as they sought to carry out their duties. Beyond underscoring the intimidation campaign that drove Trump's efforts, their collective testimony linked election denial and threats to personal safety in a way previous hearings haven't.

    TEXAS school shooter Salvador Ramos was an incel who "threatened to kidnap and rape girls who rejected him" on a "daily basis" in chilling live streams, The Sun can reveal. The 18-year-old, who massacred 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde, reportedly used Yubo to make his vile rants, a social network where users can create video live streams with up to 10 friends. 10These chilling pictures are allegedly from Ramos' Yubo profileCredit: Yubo / Sun Exclusive 10They were shared with The Sun by a concerned Yubo userCredit: Yubo / Sun Exclusive 10The teen said Ramos would harass girls online constantly and make vile threatsCredit: Yubo / Sun Exclusive In messages shared with The Sun, he told one teen who had rejected him: "You're going to regret not doing what I say" then in another he said: "Go jump off a bridge".

    The Texas school shooter made two FaceTime calls - one of them while topless - with a German girl he met on social media, who was told of his warped plot to murder. Ramos, 18, was filmed posing with his shirt off in a call made to the girl, known only as CeCe, after meeting her on social media site Yubo. Other new images obtained by CNN, show Ramos filming himself while holding the phone under his chin, and while wearing a face mask. On the day of the massacre, Ramos messaged CeCe on Yubo to tell her he'd just shot his grandma Celia, and that 'Ima go shoot up a elementary school rn.' Ramos ultimately carried out the plan, killing 19 young children at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, as well as two female teachers, before being shot dead.   Ramos threatened to rape girls he talked to on social media app Yubo and said that he would shoot up schools, just weeks before the massacre. The three teenage users, who revealed the messages to several news outlets, said that...
    Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki revealed chilling details of threats and harassment while answering a question that started out innocently enough: probing the “Yass Kween!” aspect of her job. On Wednesday, Psaki participated in a forum at the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago entitled “Notes from the Frying Pan to the Fire.” IOP Speaker Series director Jennifer Steinhauer moderated the discussion, which included a wide range of topics, as well as a Q&A session. One revealing moment was when Steinhauer asked Psaki about the celebrity and the fandom that accompanied her tenure. Psaki veered off into some dark territory, and revealed disturbing new details of the threats and harassment that she has spoken about before: JENNIFER STEINHAUER: Something that came up on the stage here recently was this notion that we don’t really have kind of these high profile political operatives anymore, like Karl Rove, like David Axelrod. Kellyanne. Kellyanne Conway, I would say in that category, kind of in the spotlight. And so in this dynamic that you’re describing, you’ve sort of kind of in some ways became...

    On the morning of July 16, 1945, in the heart of the New Mexico desert, the world entered the nuclear age. For months, the scientists of the Manhattan Project had been working on a weapon of unparalleled capability, harnessing the power of the atom to unleash a colossal explosion. Now, at exactly 5.29am, they saw the results. As a ball of blazing fire rose above the desert, wrote the project’s director, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the mood was ‘entirely solemn. We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent’. As the fireball became a mushroom cloud, Oppenheimer thought of a line from the Hindu scriptures: ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ That was almost 80 years ago, and since then only two nuclear weapons have been used in anger. One was Little Boy, the atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, which killed at least 100,000 people. The other was Fat Man, dropped on Nagasaki three days later, which killed...

    The Kremlin have blasted Latvia's ‘neo-Nazi regime’ in a chilling echo of Moscow's threats to Ukraine after the Riga made May 9 a day of remembrance for victims of Russian aggression.   The Russian Foreign Ministry has heavily criticised Latvia's decision to commemorate Ukrainian war victims on May 9 and branded it 'blasphemous' - as it is the same day Moscow holds its annual Victory Day parade to mark the Nazis surrender in WWII. The Latvian Seimas passed the legislation to draw attention to 'Russia's military aggression' and will adorn national flags with black ribbon, which will be raised at every residence and government building.  Latvian national flags will also be raised alongside Ukrainian flags at the Riga Castle, Saeima building and the Cabinet of Ministers building.  Maria Zakharova, the Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, called it 'an attempt to humiliate the Russian-speaking community living in Latvia, which cherishes the memory of the exploits of anti-fascist heroes'.  In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Ms Zakharova said: 'The blasphemous decision of...
    PARENTS across the country were left concerned after a warning was issued this week over a TikTok challenge threatening violence against schools on December 17. The origin of the challenge remains unclear, but it allegedly evolved into threats of violence including bomb threats and shootings, prompting many schools to step up security in their campuses on Friday. 2Clinical and forensic psychologist and professor at the University of Arizona Dr Joel DvoskinCredit: Georgetown University 2A warning was issued over a TikTok challenge threatening violence against schoolsCredit: AFP While the warning did not materialize, it's important to be vigilant about potential threats in schools and workplaces, as they have increasingly become targets for violent actors. In an exclusive interview with The US Sun, clinical and forensic psychologist and professor at the University of Arizona Dr Joel Dvoskin explains three different ways of dealing with school threats. TRAINING "All organizations- schools, corporations-- should have a strategy for dealing with threats around the workplace," said Dr Dvoskin.

    Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland about whether or not he recognized that his Oct. 4 memo directing the FBI to meet with local law enforcement officials over potential threats directed at education officials would chill protected speech. “Did you consider the chilling effect your memorandum might have on parents exercising their constitutional rights?” Cornyn repeatedly asked during a Wednesday Judiciary Committee hearing, saying that he was asking a “yes or no” question. Garland dodged, claiming that his memo “recognized the right of spirited debate.” “The only thing this memorandum is about is violence and threats of violence,” he said. “Do you recognize the chilling effect that this sort of threat of federal prosecution would have on parents exercise their constitutional rights to be involved in their children’s education?” Cornyn pressed. Garland sent the memo to FBI Director Christopher Wray and two senior Justice Department attorneys following a request from the National School Board Association (NSBA) that President Joe Biden consider “acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials” adjacent to “domestic terrorism.” (EXCLUSIVE:...
    Former Department of Justice Spokesperson Ian Prior told "America’s Newsroom" on Tuesday that the Biden administration’s investigation into parental pushback against school boards will have "chilling effects." DOJ LAUNCHING EFFORT TO COMBAT THREATS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST SCHOOL OFFICIALS IAN PRIOR: It’s really scary how they are putting this out here. It has a chilling effect. You will see parents now going to be concerned if they go to a school board meeting and say something like we are going to end your political career. Is that a threat? It is. But it’s parents saying we’ll take part in the election process or use legal means to hold you accountable. For the attorney general to put out something like this with such a chilling effect on the first amendment rights of parents who are just fighting for their kids’ education is absolutely insane.

    A police car at a crime scene. Angel Zayas/Pacific Press/LightRocket via Getty Images FBI agents arrested Brendan Hunt, a 37-year-old assistant court analyst of Queens, on Monday.

    Hollie Adams/Getty Images Amazon responded to a lawsuit from alternative social media platform Parler by outlining shocking threats made against the company by Parler users. The response comes after Parler sued Amazon f0r booting the platform off its web hosting service. “This case is not about suppressing speech or stifling viewpoints,” Amazon said in a brief filed Tuesday. “Instead, this case is about Parler’s demonstrated unwillingness and inability to remove from the servers of Amazon Web Services… content that threatens the public safety, such as by inciting and planning the rape, torture, and assassination of named public officials and private citizens.” Amazon Web Services, the unit that booted Parler, said the tech giant has been the direct target of threats made by Parler users since it pulled the plug on the platform, which has been embraced by Trump supporters as a free speech alternative to Twitter. “After the notice of Parler’s account suspension, Parler users began posting threats of physical violence to Amazon delivery drivers, Amazon facilities, and Amazon executives. True and correct copies of examples of these threats are...
    Lawmakers were briefed Monday night of security threats leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden just days after protesters descended on Capitol Hill in an attack that left five dead. Capitol security officials warned members on the call of at least four armed threats across Washington, D.C. — targeting the U.S. Capitol, the White House, and the Supreme Court. One Democratic House member said the hourlong phone call was "horrifying, the most chilling hour imaginable," according to the Hill. Separately, Rep. Conor Lamb told CNN's New Day that one threat involved "4,000 armed 'patriots'" surrounding the Capitol to "prevent any Democrat from going in." "The threats we are facing are very specific — I don’t want anyone watching at home to think that we’re just sort of imagining the things could be bad," the Pennsylvania Democrat said. "They have published rules of engagement, meaning when you shoot and when you don't. So this is an organized group that has a plan. They are committed to doing what they're doing because I think in their minds, you...

    The St. Louis couple who went viral on Sunday for pulling guns on Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home have spoken out, detailing the threats they reportedly received that prompted them to take matters into their own hands. What's a brief history here? Black Lives Matter demonstrators on Sunday began forcing their way into a gated community in which the couple lived to demand the resignation of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, who also lived there. Krewson has been under fire after reportedly revealing personal information about St. Louis residents who support defunding local police. The couple — prominent personal injury attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey — pulled out an AR-15-style gun and a pistol to fend off approaching demonstrators. The couple faced a lot of criticism on the internet for brandishing the weapons, and St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said her office is investigating the incident. Gardner added that protesters should not be met with violence, according to KMOV-TV. "I am alarmed...
