    Nancy Pelosi refused on Sunday to call for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's resignation despite claiming she has a 'zero tolerance' rule with sexual assault and harassment accusations. 'The governor should look inside his heart – he loves New York – to see if he can govern effectively,' the House speaker told ABC's 'This Week'. 'What I said at the time that these revelations came forward, I said what these women have said must be treated with respect,' she continued. 'They are credible and serious charges, and then I called for an investigation. I have confidence in the Attorney General of New York. Again, with all respect in the world for what these women have come forward and said.' 'No tolerance,' she insisted when ABC News host George Stephanopoulos asked if Cuomo can still be an effective leader. 'And this is a subject very near and dear to my heart. This is – no tolerance for sexual harassment. I'll let the world know that.' 'But you're not calling on him to resign right now?' Stephanopoulos pushed. 'I think we should...

    President Biden's nominee to be the next attorney general said he won't be acting as Biden's lawyer but as one for the people. Merrick Garland, 68, told Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that he will act as "the lawyer for the people of the United States States" and that he's "not the president's lawyer" during Monday's confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. During Cruz's questioning of Garland, the Texas Republican brought up President Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder, who served in the role from 2009-2015, and what he described as the efforts to "politicize and weaponize" the Department of Justice. MERRICK GARLAND DOESN'T PROMISE TO PROTECT DURHAM INVESTIGATION OR RELEASE REPORT "The Department of Justice was politicized and weaponized in a way that was directly contrary to over a century of tradition of the Department of Justice of being apolitical and not a partisan tool to target your opponents," he said. "So it is very much my hope, if you're confirmed as attorney general, that you will bring that reputation for integrity to the Department of Justice...

    It's shocking enough that the Buffalo Bills have secured a home playoff game. But New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tossed in another stunner on Wednesday, announcing that thousands of Bills fans can attend the game next month in person — and he'll be one of them. "We're all feeling the excitement," Cuomo said Wednesday in his daily COVID-19 briefing. "We've all wanted the Buffalo Bills to be good, it's been a long time, and that team has a charisma and personality that is infectious." Cuomo said this is a first-in-the-nation pilot program for resuming live events during the pandemic that will require all attendees to test negative for the coronavirus before being admitted into the stadium. And it coincides with the Bills' first home playoff game in a quarter-century. Cuomo announces 6,700 Buffalo Bills fans will be allowed to attend team's first home playoffs game in January, and he'll be there too. Stadium is outdoors and all attendees must test negative for COVID. He says it's an effort to see if rapid testing can help reopen the economy pic.twitter.com/ovoDWQUH3F—...
    MESUT OZIL believes fellow Arsenal outcast Matteo Guendouzi is the club's most underrated player in his controversial Q&A. The playmaker answered questions to supporters on Twitter covering everything from his Gunners team-mates to Arsenal's current predicament. 2Mesut Ozil has heaped praise on Matteo GuendouziCredit: AFP or licensors ❤️@MatteoGuendouzi - Im sure he will be a big football player one day! https://t.co/inK6WNRVUh— Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) December 23, 2020 One fan asked: "Most underrated footballer you have played with?" And Ozil responded: "@MatteoGuendouzi - I'm sure he will be a big football player one day!" His answer threatened to cause further friction among supporters and boss Mikel Arteta after the Spaniard banished him from the first-team. Just like Ozil's predicament, Arteta froze Guendouzi out of his first team plans before sending him on loan for the season at Hertha Berlin. The 21-year-old, who fell out with Arteta last season, has featured eight times in the Bundesliga this season. One fan commented in response: "Why would they allow Guendouzi leave? I just don’t get it at all. Player with good qualities." Another added:...

    Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer who contracted COVID-19, announced that he'll be released from the hospital on Wednesday. "I feel just about 100% right now. I’m going to be discharged this afternoon. I’m pretty much 100%," the former New York City mayor stated on WABC New York's News & Talk Station Wednesday morning. Giuliani will still have to quarantine for a couple more days given doctors believe he contracted the virus about a week ago, he said. "I’ve got to quarantine for a few more days because the way they calculate it, I probably got it about 7-8 days ago," Giuliani, 76, explained. "So I’ve got 3-4 more days to make sure it’s out of my system. But right now, I’m functionally fine. I have no pains, no fever, I walk around fine, my breath is good. I have a teeny cough that’s going away. I feel better than when I came in." Trump announced his lawyer's diagnosis over the weekend.

    President-elect Joe Biden said he plans to increase Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in his administration to combat the coronavirus pandemic in addition to asking the public to wear medical masks for 100 days. The former vice president said he asked Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to remain in his post and become his chief medical adviser as "part of the COVID team." "You have to make sure, as he points out, that you don't have to close down the economy like a lot of folks are talking about, if, in fact, you have clear guidance," Biden told CNN's Jake Tapper. Biden revealed how he planned to issue an executive order that requires masks and said he'd make a plea to the public asking people to wear a medical mask for 100 days. He said his request would be limited to public spaces where he has authority, for example, federal buildings and interstate transportation, such as airplanes and buses. "Just 100 days to mask, not forever. One-hundred days. And I...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday he's willing to serve on Joe Biden's Coronavirus Task Force should the president-elect want him and that he's spoken to incoming White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain. 'Of course, yeah, the answer is absolutely,' Fauci said during an interview on C-SPAN's 'Washington Journal,' when asked if he'd serve on a Biden task force about the disease.   The doctor, a specialist in infectious diseases, has become the public face of the crisis thanks to his work on the White House Coronavirus Task Force.  He also revealed he's talked to Klain about holding a meeting with the Biden transition team and the current administration's task force. Fauci - like all federal employees - was muzzled from talking to the Biden team until the General Services Administration gave a letter of ascertainment so the transition process could begin. That happened on Monday evening. 'Well I've touched bases with Chief of Staff, Ron Klain. We didn't have like a real substantive conversation about the nuts and bolts of things. We just wanted to touch base in preparation for...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Thursday was supposed to be debate night in Miami until President Donald Trump’s COVID infection derailed it. Instead, he fielded questions from undecided voters at the Perez Art Museum Miami. Democratic challenger Joe Biden did the same some 1,200 miles away. During the dueling town halls, President Trump was pressed about COVID-19, which has claimed the lives of nearly 16,000 in Florida. He said he doesn’t remember taking a required test before the first debate. “Did you take a test on the day of the debate?” asked Savannah Guthrie, the moderator of the NBC News Town Hall. “If you ask the doctor, they give you a perfect answer. They take a test and I leave and I go about my business,” he said. “Did you take a test on the day of the debate is the bottom line?” Guthrie pressed. “I probably did,” he responded. Sometime later, Guthrie then asked Trump if he would accept a peaceful transfer of power, something he had declined to do in the past. Trump went on to say for the first...

    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said during a discussion about the Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court confirmation process Thursday that he expects Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, who is also a senator on the Judiciary Committee, to play a visible role in what will likely be contentious hearings for the nominee. Meadows also said that he expects Democrats to "take a serious process" and attempt to turn it into "viral moments," which the White House is preparing for with its "war room." The chief of staff made the comments as he answered largely friendly questions during a virtual event hosted by the Article III Project, a group set up to support President Trump's judicial nominees. "I think there's probably more pressure on Kamala to actually engage ... in a political way than ever before just because of the fact that she's on the ticket with Vice President Joe Biden," Meadows said of Harris, D-Calif., who was one of the most vocal senators during the 2018 confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

    Michael Cohen has revealed Donald Trump's 'biggest fear' was always his tax returns being released to the public - and he predicts the president could go straight to prison for tax fraud after leaving the White House. The president's former personal attorney and self-described fixer, who himself was convicted for tax evasion, says the New York Times bombshell report about Trump's taxes for the past two decades is just the tip of the iceberg. He says the 'corrupt' president could face a raft more allegations should forensic accountants get hold of his returns. 'Based on what I know and what has now been reported, he may soon be the first sitting president to go from the White House straight to prison,' he told DailyMail.com. 'Trump's biggest fear is that if his tax return is released, that there's a whole slew of organizations of accountants and forensic accountants that will rip through it and he will end up with a massive tax bill, fraud penalties, fines and possibly even tax fraud. 'He doesn't report the income that he claims and the...
    Ed Buck, the Democratic party donor in whose house two men died of drug overdoses, is planning to ask to be released from jail and await trial from home. On Friday, at a bail reconsideration hearing, Buck's defense attorneys are set to argue that Buck, 66, is high-risk of contracting coronavirus if he remains locked up.      According to court papers obtained by City News Service, Buck says he is willing to pay a $400,000 signature bond as well as be electronically monitored and confined to his hime.  The attorneys also argue that Buck suffers from gum disease and needs specialized cardiac care that the criminal justice system is unable to provide. But federal prosecutors are against his release, saying Buck is a fight risk and he represents a potential danger to the public.   Ed Buck is expected to be asked to be released from jail at a bail reconsideration hearing on Friday due to the coronavirus pandemic. Pictured: Buck appears in Los Angeles Superior Court on September 19 Buck is charged with nine federal counts, including giving...
    PRESIDENT Donald Trump challenged Joe Biden to release a list of his top contenders for a spot on the Supreme Court, but said Biden won't do it because he knows he can't win with "extremely radical left" picks. Trump earlier in the day released his short list for any potential Supreme Court vacancies, and, in a Wednesday night phone interview with Sean Hannity, the president said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden won't do the same because the names wouldn't be acceptable to the voting public. 4Trump challenged Biden on Wednesday and told him to release the names of his potential SCOTUS picksCredit: Reuters 4Trump's list included Senator Ted Cruz of TexasCredit: EPA "Outside of war and peace, the president's job is to select Supreme Court judges," Trump said Wednesday night. "I put up a list of 20 or 25, and will only pick from this list." Trump released a similar list before the last election, which he says is a good precedent to follow and he credits the move with helping him win the election. Trump said he knows why...

Earlier Wednesday, Politico reported that Paul Alexander, an official at the Department of Health and Human Services, is trying to prevent Fauci from speaking about the risks that the coronavirus poses to children. Alexander, a Trump administration appointee, instructed press officers and other staff about what Fauci should say during media interviews, Politico wrote, citing emails. "I would never be muzzled about anything when it comes to science and evidence and the facts," Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during an interview on Fox News. HHS did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment on the Politico...
    Joe Biden said Friday that hes been tested at least once for the COVID-19 virus and promised he will be tested regularly during his general election campaign against President Donald Trump. The Democratic presidential nominee told reporters of his testing protocol during a wide-ranging news conference in which he blasted Trump for downplaying the coronavirus and thus ensuring that it will continue to kill Americans and ravage the economy. For much of the summer, Bidens advisers deflected questions about whether the former vice president was being tested himself as he anchored his campaign almost exclusively from his Delaware home, traveling sparingly as a precaution. “They’re going to do it on a regular basis,” Biden said of the testing. He noted that the Secret Service agents assigned to protect him and “everyone” else who comes into his home is tested already. Biden said he didn’t know specifically when his next test would be. “I just, ‘yes, sir,’ show up and put my head back," Biden said. "I imagine it’ll be sometime this week, but it will be a regular basis.” Biden...
    There's a demand for Joe Biden to visit Kenosha, Wisconsin, as the city grapples with a police shooting, according to the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. “There's been overwhelming requests that I do come,” Biden told reporters Wednesday, citing members of Congress and Wisconsin elected officials. "Because what we want to do is we've got to heal, we've got to put things together, bring people together. My purpose in going is to do just that, to be a positive influence." Biden's campaign announced Wednesday he would travel to Kenosha for a community meeting on Thursday despite criticizing President Trump for making the trip Monday. Kenosha has experienced civil unrest since Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black man, was shot in the back seven times as a white police officer tried to arrest him. Initial reports were that Blake had a knife. Biden, the two-term vice president, agreed with running mate Kamala Harris that the officer involved should be afforded due process, but that the California senator believed there was enough evidence for him to be charged. "I think we should let the...

    Igor Derysh July 21, 2020 12:33AM (UTC) President Donald Trump suggested that he may not accept the results of the election if he loses, prompting a strongly-worded rebuke from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pressed Trump on the possibility of a forthcoming loss in an interview which first aired on Sunday. The current polling average shows Trump trailing by nearly nine points, according to election forecaster FiveThirtyEight. : "I'm not a good loser. I don't like to lose," Trump said. "I don't lose too often. I don't like to lose." Wallace asked if that meant that he would not accept the election results. "No. I have to see," Trump replied. "No, I'm not going to just say 'yes.' I'm not going to say 'no,' and I didn't last time either." : Trump then brought up his debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail, a process which has an incredibly low rate of fraud and numerous built-in protections, to claim that Democrats may "rig" the election. Pelosi rejected Trump's remarks in an interview with "Morning Joe." "The...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump in a late Tuesday night tweet issued his strongest veto threat yet on a must-pass defense spending bill should lawmakers not strip language requiring bases named after Confederate leaders be rechristened.Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts proposed requiring the bases be renamed as a part of the annual defense authorization bill. The legislation funds the Pentagon and is often one of the few pieces of legislation that Congress can be counted on to pass each year in order to fund the country's military operations.However, Trump -- using an offensive nickname for Warren -- has now made the bill the latest flashpoint in his defense of monuments to the Confederacy and other racist leaders from the country's past as he attempts to distract from a new nationwide peak in coronavirus cases and his own plummeting poll numbers."I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth 'Pocahontas' Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won...
    By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's nominee to be the CIA's chief watchdog is pledging independence, saying he will perform his role “in an unbiased and impartial manner, free of undue or inappropriate influences” by Trump or anyone else. Peter Thomson, a New Orleans attorney and former federal prosecutor, faced skepticism about his ability to ward off presidential interference at a nomination hearing Wednesday. Thomson's nomination as CIA inspector general comes as Trump is attacking the inspector general and whistleblower system. Trump has fired or replaced inspectors general across the federal government in recent months, including the former watchdogs for the intelligence community and State Department. Trump's moves, made with little or no explanation, have drawn bipartisan criticism and spurred fears that the Republican president is moving to dismantle a post-Watergate network of watchdogs meant to root out corruption, fraud and other problems inside federal agencies. “The job of an inspector general ... and protecting whistleblowers has never been more important,'' said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. “But just doing that job can get you fired.”...
