    (CNN)The January 6 committee, in its final public hearing until the fall, presented damning new evidence Thursday highlighting then-President Donald Trump's three-hour refusal to publicly condemn the unfolding insurrection at the US Capitol or to call off the violent mob.The primetime session -- the eighth hearing so far this summer -- focused on the "187 minutes" between Trump telling his supporters to march to the Capitol, and when he finally told them to "go home." The hearing was co-led by Rep. Elaine Luria, a Virginia Democrat, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican. Two former Trump White House aides who resigned in the immediate aftermath of the attack -- Matthew Pottinger and Sarah Matthews -- testified in-person Thursday.Here are takeaways from Thursday's epic prime-time hearing.Trump chose not to actRead MoreThe committee used Thursday's hearing to show how former President Donald Trump not only failed to act, but chose not to as he watched the violent assault on the US Capitol unfold.Several witnesses with first-hand knowledge of what was happening inside the White House on January 6 told the committee that...
    (CNN)The January 6 select committee's latest public hearing on Thursday shed considerable new light on former President Donald Trump's attempts to weaponize the Justice Department in the final months of his term as part of his plot to overturn the 2020 election and stay in power.The hearing kicked off mere hours after federal investigators raided the home of Jeffrey Clark, who was one of the key Justice Department figures who was involved in Trump's schemes. He has denied any wrongdoing related to January 6.Three Trump appointees testified in-person on Thursday, joining a growing list of Republicans who have gone under oath to provide damning information about Trump's post-election shenanigans. The witnesses were former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, his deputy Richard Donoghue, and Steven Engel, who led the department's Office of Legal Counsel.Here are takeaways from Thursday's hearing.

    (CNN)The House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection on Thursday detailed how former President Donald Trump tried to pressure his vice president to join in his scheme to overturn the presidential election -- and how Pence's refusal put his life in danger as rioters called for Pence's hanging on January 6, 2021.Two witnesses are testifying at Thursday's hearing who advised Pence that he did not have the authority to subvert the election, former Pence attorney Greg Jacob and retired Republican judge J. Michael Luttig.The committee walked through how conservative Trump attorney John Eastman put forward a legal theory that Pence could unilaterally block certification of the election -- a theory that was roundly rejected by Trump's White House attorneys and Pence's team but nevertheless embraced by the former President.Here are the key takeaways from the committee's third hearing this month: The panel tied the Mike Pence pressure campaign to January 6 violence Read MoreThe committee tried to connect Trump's pressure campaign against Pence to the violence on January 6, by weaving together testimony from Pence aides, Trump's public statements and...
    In their first series in St. Louis since 2003, the Orioles won two of three games to the Cardinals. Here are The Baltimore Sun’s three takeaways from the series. Bradish puts K in Kyle In the opener of the series, right-hander Kyle Bradish put together one of the most impressive early-career starts by not only an Oriole, but also any major league starter. Baltimore’s No. 8 prospect per Baseball America, Bradish struck out 11 Cardinals over seven innings Tuesday. In doing so, he became: the first Orioles rookie in a decade to reach double-digit strikeouts (Wei-Yin Chen, 2012). the second Baltimore pitcher to have an 11-strikeout game within his first three career appearances (Jimmy Haynes, 1995). the second pitcher in major league history to strike out 11 hitters while walking none in one of his first three appearances (Stephen Strasburg, 2010). In the minor leagues last year, Bradish, 25, was at his best when attacking the strike zone, and he did that Tuesday better than almost any other Orioles starter in the past eight seasons. He generated 14...
    Brussels (CNN)A day of crisis talks in Brussels ended Thursday with Western leaders touting unprecedented levels of unity, even as they reinforced the now-familiar limits to their approach.Looming over the gathering was the haunting question of what Russian President Vladimir Putin may do to unblock a battlefield stalemate in Ukraine.Leaders conferred mostly in private, limiting the number of people allowed in their meeting rooms to keep their sensitive plans closely held.But in statements afterward, both their resolve to support Ukraine and their apprehension at what comes next were plain.Here are four takeaways from the day of talks in Belgium:Read MoreBiden comes out in favor of removing Russia from G20It was the question that arose at every turn here in the capital of European diplomacy: Should Russia be permitted to remain in the Group of 20, one of the preeminent international summits representing the world's developed economies?It wasn't a decision that could be made here, where only the leaders of NATO and the smaller -- and more exclusive -- Group of 7 were gathering for last-minute crisis talks on Ukraine. But...
    SANTA CLARA — The 49ers moved practices to about the same time as Saturday’s 5:15 p.m. PT kickoff, and they’ve done that work inside Levi’s Stadium. Nothing can replicate what awaits them in Green Bay, however. “Lambeau is going to be awesome,” tight end George Kittle said. “Historic stadium. Haven’t played there since 2018. Very excited to go there. “It’s really kind of a dream come true, so looking forward to that experience of playing a night playoff game at Lambeau, 0 degrees. I mean, what more can you ask for?” Well, obviously an upset win is on the wish list for the 49ers, who’ve won back-to-back elimination games and next try upsetting the top-seeded Packers on their home tundra. Winning indoors amid the climate-controlled conditions of Los Angeles and Dallas actually should have some carry-over effect. It introduced high-stakes football to players who weren’t on the 2019 49ers’ Super Bowl team, such as running back Elijah Mitchell and wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings. “I didn’t see anyone flinch,” Kittle added. Aiyuk,...
    Glasgow, Scotland (CNN)With just over 24 hours before the COP26 climate summit comes to a close, it's all hands on deck.A new version of the draft agreement text is expected to be published at some point Thursday night, but COP26 President Alok Sharma made it clear the negotiations are far from over -- so don't be surprised if they continue past the deadline. Here's what happened on Thursday.Sharma urges a 'gear shift'Sharma is pressing hard for the forthcoming Glasgow agreement to have substance, knowing well that history will judge the summit based on the final text. Speaking to delegates on Thursday, he said he was concerned about the number of issues still not agreed on.China surprises climate summit with pledge to work with US, but doesnt budge on climate goalsRead More"I know just how hard you're all working.

    Glasgow, Scotland (CNN)It was energy day at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow on Thursday -- and some pretty big announcements were made on the end of coal and fossil fuel financing. Here's what happened on the fourth day of the climate summit.COP26 pledges could limit warming to 1.8 degreesScientists say global warming must be kept to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and the goal of COP26 is to keep that target in reach. Humanity needs to ditch coal to save itself. It also needs to keep the lights on.The International Energy Agency reported Thursday that warming could be limited to 1.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100, if all COP26 commitments made as of Wednesday night are fulfilled on time.Read MoreIt's big news for COP26, since the UN reported in September the planet is careening toward 2.7 degrees. That analysis took into account countries' pledges before COP26, but didn't include the most recent developments."The result is extremely encouraging," IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol told an audience at a COP26...
    More than 40 world leaders, 14 cabinet members, 8 CEOs and Pope Francis joined President Biden's two-day virtual Leaders Climate Summit on Thursday and Friday. Nations touted their climate ambitions, announced collaborations, and agreed on the urgency of the climate crisis.  Here are seven takeaways from the summit: 1. The U.S. wants to lead in the fight against climate changeSpecial Envoy for Climate John Kerry said Thursday that the summit reestablished the U.S. as a global leader in the climate fight.  "We had to restore America's credibility.  We had to prove that we were serious," he said at a White House briefing. "And, I think, today does that in many ways."  U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed the U.S. back to the Paris climate agreement  in his summit address. "And it's great, by the way, that Joe has brought the United States back to the Climate Change Accords, a great step forward." U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks as U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State John Kerry listen during...
    Washington (CNN)The Biden administration slapped sweeping sanctions on Russia Thursday over Moscow's alleged interference in the 2020 election, the massive SolarWinds hack and the ongoing occupation of Crimea, signaling it is adopting a tougher posture toward the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin.The sanctions announcement also showed that the Biden administration is more willing to directly call out Russia's meddling in US affairs after Trump administration officials had to dance around former President Donald Trump's frequent unwillingness to criticize Moscow.Here are the key takeaways from Thursday's sanctions: Sanctions now align with the President's rhetoricThe Trump administration was more than willing to issue sanctions against Russia, and did so on multiple occasions, including over the occupation of Crimea, the poisoning of an ex-spy in the United Kingdom, and even election interference. Read MoreBut those actions were taken while Trump himself repeatedly refused to condemn Russia's actions. He would not acknowledge Russia's election interference in 2016, bristling at the notion Russia helped his campaign, even as his top national security officials unanimously said they agreed with the intelligence community assessment that Moscow...
    President Joe Biden’s first news conference in office covered a range of topics, including the migrant surge at the southern U.S. border, GOP efforts to restrict voting rights, foreign relations with China and North Korea and the timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. But Biden also made clear that his next priority is the massive, two-part jobs and infrastructure bill that he said he will announce in more detail on Friday, and he made news on other fronts as well. Here are five key takeaways from Thursday’s turn in front of the news media: A new goal for vaccinations: Biden opened his remarks by announcing a new target for Covid-19 vaccinations of 200 million shots administered in his first 100 days in office. The administration reached its previous goal of 100 million shots last week, and Biden said the new benchmark was “ambitious,” but given that the news conference came on Biden’s 65th day as president and that the country is now averaging about 2.5 million doses a day, the target should be reachable. In what could be...
    (CNN)On Thursday, the House impeachment managers wrapped up their case for the conviction of Donald Trump for inciting the US Capitol riot on January 6, centering their argument on connecting the former President's words in advance of the riot and the actions taken by his supporters on that day.I watched the proceedings -- and took notes on what mattered most. My takeaways are below (and be sure to check out my takeaways from Day 1 and Day 2).1. The rioters' statements are damning: The clear focus of the impeachment managers on Thursday was to provide a clear link between Trump's words and the actions of the violent mob that stormed the Capitol. And time and time again, the best proof of that link was the rioters themselves. In interviews, in videos, in arrest records the same theme just kept emerging: They believed they were acting on the wishes (and orders) of the President of the United States. The lingering image (and sound) for me from Thursday's proceedings was a protester outside the Capitol shouting, "We were invited by the President...
    Cuomo calls US Supreme Courts religious gatherings ruling irrelevant Trump’s baseless election fraud claims in Georgia turn Senate runoffs into a ‘high-wire act’ for Republicans Four takeaways from the Washington Football Team’s 41-16 Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys The Washington Football Team beat the Dallas Cowboys 41-16 Thursday in a battle for NFC Least supremacy. Both teams entered the day 3-7, but Washington’s win put them at 4-7, atop the division (ahead of the 3-6-1 Philadelphia Eagles, the 3-7 New York Giants, and 3-8 Dallas). Here are four things that stood out in that game: © Provided by The Comeback Washington celebrations vs. Dallas. 1. Antonio Gibson is devastating to Dallas: Gibson, a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft (66th overall), has been a valuable piece for Washington this year on a variety of fronts. But he’s been particularly effective against the Cowboys. His only game with 100-plus rushing yards heading into Thursday’s contest was a 25-3 home win over Dallas on November 8, where he carried the ball 20 times for 128 yards and a touchdown....
    (CNN)Joe Biden cast the United States as unsafe under President Donald Trump and claimed he could unite the country Thursday night in a CNN town hall less than two weeks before their first debate. The town hall was held as a drive-in, underscoring the unprecedented final months of campaigning after the coronavirus pandemic led Biden's campaign to call off public rallies where supporters gathered indoors. Biden and CNN's moderator, Anderson Cooper, stood onstage and questioners parked their cars around them, and approached microphones near the stage to ask questions. Visit CNN's Election Center for full coverage of the 2020 raceDuring the event, the Democratic presidential nominee mocked Trump's claims that electing Biden would lead to widespread violence and chaos in the streets of America -- and particularly the suburbs. And he touted his own ability to unify the country, pointing to his record as a senator and saying he never questions his political opponents' motives. "I'm not going to be a Democratic president. I'm going to be America's president," Biden said. Read MoreHere are five takeaways from Biden's CNN town hall Thursday night...
    After more than 130 days away from play due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NHL will return in another week or so. Meanwhile, the Wild will wrap up their makeshift training camp in the coming days, and on Sunday afternoon, fly to the hub city of Edmonton. That’s where they hope to spend the next couple of months in pursuit of the ever-elusive Stanley Cup. As a final tuneup of sorts, the Wild scrimmaged on Thursday afternoon at TRIA Rink. Here are five takeaways: PARISE SHINES Zach Parise has had a heck of a training camp to this point. He appears to be in great shape and has made a habit of scoring goals in practices. Maybe the most promising sign for the 35-year-old winger is that he has been particularly impressive on the power play. He collected a rebound in front on Thursday and beat goaltender Devan Dubnyk from in close. It will be interesting to see if this production carries over into real games. FOLIGNO SCORES Marcus Foligno has long been viewed as big brother on the ice....
