    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy told fellow GOP lawmakers shortly after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection that he would urge then-President Donald Trump to resign, according to audio posted by The New York Times and aired on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show . In the recording of a Jan. 10 House Republican Leadership call posted by the Times Thursday night, McCarthy is heard discussing the Democratic effort to remove Trump from office and saying he would tell Trump, “I think it will pass and it would be my recommendation he should resign.” It’s unclear whether McCarthy, who is in line to become House speaker if Republicans gain control during the fall midterm elections, followed through on his thinking or was merely spit-balling ideas shared privately with his colleagues in the aftermath of the deadly Capitol assault. In the same conversation, McCarthy told his colleagues he doubted Trump would take the advice to step aside. “That would be my recommendation,” McCarthy is heard saying in response to question from Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who would emerge as...
    House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy told other GOP lawmakers shortly after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection that he would urge then-President Donald Trump to resign, according to an audio recording posted Thursday night by The New York Times. The Times reported that the audio was a recording of a Jan. 10 conversation among House GOP leaders in which they discussed the Democratic effort to impeach Trump. McCarthy is heard telling the other lawmakers that he would tell Trump, “I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign.” Earlier Thursday, after the Times published a story describing the conversation, McCarthy released a statement calling it “totally false and wrong.” Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

Dustin Thompson, a 38-year-old exterminator from Ohio, faced six charges -- obstructing an official proceeding, theft of government property, illegally entering the Capitol, illegally protesting in the Capitol, and two counts of disorderly conduct in the Capitol. The jury deliberated for less than three hours on Thursday.

This story is breaking and will be updated.
    Former President Donald Trump was just trying to help. Instead, he just handed investigators more ammunition. On Monday, Trump’s lawyers filed documents alleging that he “denies knowledge”—and doesn’t even know enough “to form a belief”—about the way he allegedly slapped a 30 percent brand premium on some business properties in 2014. But the very next day, Trump said the complete opposite when he issued a lengthy statement to counter news that his long-time outside accounting firm, Mazars USA, had suddenly ditched him. He took the opportunity to show off his supposed previous net worth of $5.7 billion in 2014—and, more importantly, noted that it didn’t include the typical boost from the “enthusiasm” of the Trump brand. On Wednesday, prosecutors contended in a letter that Trump can no longer play clueless; he had just revealed that he knows “exactly what OAG is investigating.” “His answer is more than merely legally deficient: it plainly contradicts his public statements,” they wrote. That self-own was compounded on Thursday, when a state judge ordered him to turn over evidence about shady real estate values...
    Donald Trump's secretary of state has strongly criticized the White House for their tactics in Afghanistan, saying that the country would not be falling to the Taliban if Trump was in charge. Mike Pompeo warned on Thursday night that the country was turning into 'a breeding ground' for terror attacks. 'It looks at best naive and at worst ignorant,' he said, of the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces. 'Weakness begets war, and you see what weak leadership ultimately leads to.'  By Thursday night, 12 provincial capitals had fallen to the Taliban and two thirds of the country was under their control.  The Taliban seized the cities of Ghazni and Herat on Thursday, in the most dramatic string of captures since launching their offensive. There was heavy fighting in Kandahar, their home city, and some reports suggested the city had fallen. Pompeo said that Trump was adamant the Taliban would not regain power on his watch. Mike Pompeo on Thursday night appeared on Sean Hannity's show to discuss events in Afghanistan Biden is trying to buy off the Mullahs in...
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday downplayed a threat to the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters, calling it 'silliness' and said the House didn't cancel votes because of possible violence. Pelosi said the votes were cancelled because Republicans were holding their annual issues conference - a time when the GOP gathers to talk about their agenda for the new Congress. Democrats held a similar conference virtually earlier in the week.   'I don't think anybody should take any encouragement that because some troublemakers might show up that we changed our whole schedule. No we just moved it a few hours and largely to accommodate the Republicans going to their own session,' the speaker said at her weekly press conference. Thursday is predicted by followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory to be the day that Donald Trump will take power again, returning to D.C. to be inaugurated as president once more.  March 4 as been branded by them as the 'real Inauguration Day' as it was the date formerly scheduled for the event until 1933. U.S. Capitol Police revealed Wednesday it has received intelligence reports that indicated...
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he believed that President Donald Trump encouragement to 'LIBERATE MICHIGAN' led to a plot to kidnap Michigan's Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and incite a 'civil war.'  'Yes I do,' Biden answered when asked about Trump's April tweet, which was in protest of the governor's coronavirus lockdown restrictions. 'Why can't the president just say, "Stop. Stop, stop, stop, and we will pursue you if you don't. So, stop."'   As he was arriving in Arizona for a campaign stop with Cindy McCain, the widow of Republican Sen. John McCain, Biden said he and running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, had both spoken with Whitmer Tuesday, hours after news of the plot broke.      Biden said Whitmer was 'feeling secure and good.' And he credited the FBI for the role the agency played.   'The words of a president matter,' Biden told reporters. 'They can cause a nation to have the market rise or fall, go to war or bring peace. But they can also breath oxygen into those who are filled with hate and danger and I just think...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump sometimes, well, just says stuff. This is especially true when he speaks to large gatherings of supporters -- as he did on Thursday night in Jacksonville, Florida. These lines, in particular, stood out to me:"We also have some of our really unbelievable undercover operatives, and if you don't mind, I won't introduce them all right, I don't think we're going to introduce them. I want to so badly. I want to have him stand up, bring him up here. I want to hug him and kiss him which I'm not allowed to do because of social distancing, but somehow they may lose some effectiveness if I introduced him so they're in the crowd." "We also have some of our unbelievable undercover operatives. If you dont mind, I wont introduce them. I want to so badly ... I want to hug em and kiss em, which Im not allowed to do because of social distancing." -- wut pic.twitter.com/ipV6h61fra— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 25, 2020 Uh, what?

    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman on Thursday said that former President Barack Obama said something during his speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention that was seemingly tailor-made to enrage President Donald Trump. Specifically, Haberman zeroed in on Obama’s assertion that Trump has proven repeatedly that he is not equipped to handle the job of the presidency. “He said, and Michelle Obama had said two nights earlier, this is a person who’s just essentially fake, who’s not up for the job,” she said. “And that gets under President Trump’s skin more than almost anything you could say about him.” She then predicted that this would send Trump into a rage for at least the next 48 hours. “So I think what he’s going to do is swing wildly at it for the next couple of days,” she said. “Whether that carries over into his [planned Thursday night speech in Scranton, Pennsylvania] remains to be seen.” Haberman also said that these attacks on Trump’s erratic behavior over the last four years could prove more effective than they were in 2016 because now many people...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday ripped President Donald Trump as “heartless” and “cruel” for his administration’s legal attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act during the coronavirus pandemic. "I think its cruel, its heartless, its callous and its all because in my view he cant abide the thought of letting stand one of President [Barack] Obamas greatest achievements, the Affordable Care Act," Biden said during a speech on Thursday, according to The Hill. The former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was speaking in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, an important swing state in the upcoming election. It came just after the U.S. Supreme Court’s deadline for the Trump administration to file a legal brief supporting a lawsuit brought by a group of Republican-led states that would overturn the entire law. Biden said on Thursday that if Republicans are successful, then people who are still recovering from the virus "would have their peace of mind stolen at that moment they needed it most.” He also blasted Trump’s criticism of coronavirus testing, saying much more is needed and that the president is...

In his executive order establishing a curfew around the BOK Center from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday through Saturday and from the end of the rally on Saturday until 6 a.m. Sunday, Mayor G.T. Bynum cited the unrest that followed some of the recent protests around the country over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month. "I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive and violent behavior in other States are planning to travel to the City of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally," Bynum said in his order, which was posted on the police department's Facebook and Twitter pages.
