    Congressman Matt Gaetz said in an interview he’s being targeted by an “extortion effort” following reports that a DOJ investigation is looking into a possible sexual relationship he had with a 17-year-old. The New York Times broke news Tuesday that a DOJ investigation — apparently opened under former Attorney General Bill Barr — was looking at “whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him” and “whether Mr. Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws.” The Florida Republican spoke with Axios’ Jonathan Swan and said, “The allegations against me are as searing as they are false… I believe that there are people at the Department of Justice who are trying to criminalize my sexual conduct, you know when I was a single guy.” Gaetz said the allegations are “rooted in an extortion effort against my family”: Gaetz sent Axios screenshots of text messages, emails and documents outlining the alleged extortion scheme, which he claimed was being run by a former DOJ employee. The Justice Department declined to comment… Asked what the charges could...

(Photo illustration: Yahoo News; photos: AP, Getty Images) © Provided by Yahoo! News WASHINGTON — Computer errors caused the government to hand out duplicate loans to thousands of borrowers under the Trump administration’s program to rescue businesses from the economic ravages of the coronavirus pandemic. Load Error While the Paycheck Protection Program has been subject to fraud, the revelations contained in a new report by the inspector general of the Small Business Administration speak instead to a faulty — and costly — implementation. Aging federal technology may have hampered the SBA’s inability to track and cross-reference loans. Two years ago, the Government Accountability Office found that information systems across the federal government were badly outdated. Some computer hardware at the SBA was a decade old, that investigation found. A series of malfunctions took place in the spring and summer of 2020, resulting in millions of taxpayer dollars...

    President Joe Biden vowed an 'all hands on deck effort' to combat sexual assault in the military during an International Women Day's event on Monday, where he appointed two women as four-star generals. Biden described sexual assault in the ranks as a 'threat to our national security.'  'We have to take on sexual assault harassment and violence against women in the military. Sexual assault is a abhorrent and wrong at any time. And our military so much of unit cohesion is built on trusting your fellow service members to have your back. There's nothing less than a threat to our national security,' he said. The president, who was accompanied at the event by Vice President Kamala Harris and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, noted Austin as set up an independent review commission on sexual assaults in the military.  'This is going to be an all hands on deck effort. Under my administration to end the scourge of sexual assault in the military. And we're going to be focused on that from the very top,' Biden said. President Joe Biden walks...

The actress — who alleged last month that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon "abused his power on numerous occasions while working together" on the series and its spinoff, Angel — published her letter with The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, saying she was inspired to do so "to help educate anyone reading this on how to be an ally and support a person who has survived trauma in its many incarnations." © Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Charisma Carpenter "My open letter is not just trauma unpacking or dumping.

              Senator Siobhan Dunnavant’s (R-Henrico) SB 1303 requiring schools to provide both in-person and virtual learning options is still moving through the House of Delegates, but slowly. Dunnavant’s bill earned bipartisan support in the Senate, thanks in part to support from Senators Chap Petersen (D-Fairfax) and Joe Morrissey (D-Richmond.) But a House Education subcommittee initially introduced several amendments to the bill that would effectively leave the status quo intact, prompting opposition from House Republicans. Dunnavant told The Virginia Star that she was working with House legislators and hoped to have a good compromise ready next week. The House Education Committee met on Wednesday and was scheduled to consider the amended bill, but instead voted to temporarily pass by the bill. “Senator Dunnavant’s bill is a bill that is important to all of us and we want to make sure that we get it right, so it will be a bill that both parties can be confident in,” Committee Chair Delegate Roslyn Tyler (D-Sussex) said on Wednesday. “That’s why we’re going to pass by the...
    South Carolina will get extra vaccination support from the CDC in an effort to speed the rollout and stop the South African variant of coronavirus detected there on Thursday from spreading, agency director Dr Rochelle Walensky said Friday.  She said the CDC is 'offering support' to states that detect super-covid variants, but  only mentioned South Carolina by name.  Two people in South Carolina have the South African B1351 variant of coronavirus, which is about 50 percent more infectious and makes vaccines less effective.  Neither had recently travelled, they live in different regions of the  state and  otherwise unlinked, suggesting the variant is spreading silently in South Carolina.  Vaccines still offer some protection against the 'super-covid' variant, and the more  people have some immunity, the less likely it is to become dominant.  Fewer than six percent of South Carolina residents have had at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose - about 360,000 people - which is below the national rate of 6.8 percent of the population vaccinated with one or more doses.  CDC and South Carolina health officials did not immediately respond...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki. REUTERS/Tom Brenner The White House will include an ASL interpreter at all press briefings moving forward. Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the move was an effort to be more inclusive and accessible. Last August, the National Association of the Deaf sued the Trump Administration for failing to provide an ASL interpreter. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced Monday that the Biden Administration's daily press briefings will include an American Sign Language interpreter as part of the team's accessibility and inclusion efforts.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani personally voted in the 2020 election using a voting method he publicly disparaged and bashed in his attempts to overthrow the presidential election results, a CNN KFile investigation has found. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, voted in Manhattan by an affidavit ballot, also known as a provisional ballot, after his name did not appear on the voter rolls when he showed up to vote. According to records obtained by CNN's KFile, Giuliani's registration was moved to his Long Island home in August and his registration in New York City was purged in September. Giuliani told CNN he did not know why his registration was moved to his Long Island home in August and contested that he changed his registration at all. Giuliani swore in an affidavit oath that he was registered to vote in the Manhattan district and cast his ballot there. A New York City Board of Elections official told CNN the vote would count, citing a provision in the state's election law. Giuliani has baselessly claimed that a...
    Alex Thomas December 28, 2020 0 Comments As President Donald Trump’s hopes of overturning the election have dwindled to Hail Mary lawsuits, some Republicans loyal to the president are making their own play. Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is leading a group of Republicans in a lawsuit aimed at forcing Vice President Mike Pence to select Trump electors on January 6th — the date that Congress meets to finalize the election. Gohmert was joined in the suit by a group of Republican operatives, including Kelli Ward, who has mounted two unsuccessful Senate bids in Arizona. The lawsuit claims that the other parties “constitute the full slate of the Arizona Republican party’s nominees for presidential electors.” ⚖️NEW: VP Pence has been sued by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), Kelli Ward and other GOP mbrs in a far-fetched bid to overturn Bidens winPlaintiffs ask Judge Jeremy Kernodle, a Trump-apptd fed judge in Texas, to find that Pence is authorized to pick pro-Trump electors on Jan. 6 pic.twitter.com/BumNwLm5ss— John Kruzel (@johnkruzel) December 28, 2020 The lawsuit claims that Arizona and several other...
    Kelly Loeffler. If Sen. Kelly Loeffler has learned one thing from Donald Trump, it appears to be shameless nerve. A new ad attempting to woo Black voters in Georgia’s Senate runoff includes this astonishing line, spoken by Janelle King, a Black former deputy state director of the Georgia Republican Party: “We need someone who understands how to not only write paychecks and sign paychecks, but how it feels like waiting on that paycheck.” And Kelly Loeffler is supposed to be that person?  Loeffler likes to make much of the fact that she grew up on a farm, but at this point she is one of the wealthiest, if not the wealthiest, people in Congress—in a Senate that includes Mitt Romney, mind you. She and her husband have around $500 million and live in a 15,000 square foot home that was the most expensive real estate transaction ever in Atlanta. And even her much-touted farming roots allowed her to pay for graduate school by mortgaging land she’d inherited. Waiting on that paycheck does not appear to have been a huge feature of her life. The Georgia runoff is...
    Anchor Chuck Todd said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that President Donald Trump’s effort to turn “a legitimate defeat” into a “fraudulent victory” was an assault on our democracy. Todd said, “In the days immediately following Joe Biden’s victory, it was easy to dismiss President Trump’s reality-denial as working his base, or just a tantrum, or some sort of strategy for his post-presidency strategy. But now his antics look less like a fit of pique than an assault on our democracy.” He continued, “In the last few days, we see the president’s allies pressuring legislators to overturn the voters and vote for Trump instead. He added, “At the same time, the president is denying Biden’s team access to information that would allow the new president to deal with the COVID crisis on day one, among other things. Simply put, that decision could be costing lives in a country where more than a quarter-million have already been lost. Mr. Trump’s effort to turn a legitimate defeat into a fraudulent victory appears headed for failure.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

    (CNN)Boyan Slat has made it his mission to remove plastic from the oceans. His organization, The Ocean Cleanup, has successfully started to clean the pollution that has been circling in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But millions more tons of plastic enter the oceans every year, almost all of it flowing from rivers. The Ocean Cleanup founder Boyan Slat surveys plastic pollution floating in the Klang river in Malaysia.Just 10 rivers are responsible for around 90% of all that plastic, according to a 2017 study from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research."So if we focus on the worst rivers, we believe we can really have the fastest and most cost-effective way to close the tap and prevent more plastic from reaching the oceans in the first place," Slat told CNN.The Ocean Cleanup is deploying floating trash collectors called "Interceptors." These solar-powered, autonomous systems use the rivers' currents to guide the trash onto a conveyor belts that carry the waste to awaiting bins.Read MoreLocal workers haul away trash collected by the autonomous Interceptor 001 anchored in the Cengkareng Drain waterway in...
    President Trump took his stump speech into a key "purple" state Friday, telling Virginians their Gov. Ralph Northam represents the kind of governance they'll get on a national scale if they vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in November. "Only by voting for me, can you save your country and can you save your Second Amendment," Trump declared while speaking from a hangar at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport. Trump argued that by backing Northam, a physician who supports late-term abortion, Biden had backed the governor's opposition to life-saving medical care for infants born alive after abortions and Northam's pro-gun control agenda. Although Biden campaigned with Northam in 2017, he later called for his resignation in response to photos that surfaced with Northam in blackface. According to the Virginia-Pilot, hundreds of people attended with doors opening at 6 p.m. ET, although people started lining up prior to that. Trump's comments came just after he signed an executive order ensuring that federally-funded programs and facilities provided that type of care, and as he was expected to nominate a pro-life justice to the Supreme Court -- a controversial decision that will likely...

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics talked a big game after losing at the buzzer on Thursday night, determined not to give the Raptors any more momentum in their playoff series. Boston players promised to come out fast and throw the first punch in Saturday night’s Game 4. They promised to be motivated and angry. Most importantly, they promised that there was no way they’d let the Raptors outplay them. Unfortunately, none of those promises were kept. The Celtics were completely outplayed throughout a 100-93 loss, and now the series is all tied up at 2-2 with all the momentum on Toronto’s side. The Raptors out-hustled the Celtics throughout the game, leading to 24 second-chance points. They also hit pretty much everything from deep to start the game, and finished the night with 17 made threes on 44 attempts. The Celtics, on the other hand, hit just seven of their 35 shots from downtown. Many of those looks were wide open, but the Celtics couldn’t connect. Boston’s third quarter struggles also continued Saturday night, with Toronto...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is using its authority to implement a temporary eviction moratorium through the end of the year, the Trump administration said Tuesday evening. The CDC’s moratorium will apply to all rental units nationwide until Dec. 31 and goes into effect immediately, senior administration officials said. The previous federal eviction moratorium created by the CARES Act that ended in late July only applied to federally-funded housing, including rental units with mortgages backed by Fannie Mae FNMA, -1.33% and Freddie Mac FMCC, -1.78% . The moratorium builds on a previous executive order from President Trump that directed the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC to determine whether halting evictions was necessary to contain the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. “President Trump is committed to helping hard-working Americans stay in their homes and combatting the spread of the coronavirus,” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said during a press briefing Tuesday. The moratorium will apply to any state where there is not already a more protective ban in effect. Multiple...
    Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer (pictured) has joined growing outrage over the leak of a police memo that revealed new information about the botched no-knock raid that killed Breonna Taylor The mayor of Louisville has joined growing outrage over the leak of a police memo that revealed new information about the botched no-knock raid that killed Breonna Taylor.   The Louisville Metro Police Department memo outlined previously-undisclosed details about the evidence investigators used to obtain the search warrant officers used to storm Taylor's home on the night they shot her dead.   The memo, which was written several weeks after Taylor's death and was leaked to the media last week, focused heavily on links between the hard-working EMT and the main target of the narcotics probe that prompted the warrant - her ex-boyfriend Jamarcus Glover.  Critics have accused police of leaking the memo in an effort to smear Taylor and justify the deadly raid.  'Breonna Taylor's death was a tragedy. Period,' Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said as he charged that the leak was meant to 'sway opinion and impact the investigation', per NBC News....
