    (CNN)Trump-era records were not returned to the government during the waning days of Donald Trump's presidency despite a determination by one of his lawyers that they should be, an attorney at the National Archives said in an email reviewed by The Washington Post."It is also our understanding that roughly two dozen boxes of original presidential records were kept in the Residence of the White House over the course of President Trump's last year in office and have not been transferred to NARA, despite a determination by Pat Cipollone in the final days of the administration that they need to be," Gary Stern, the National Archives and Records Administration's chief counsel, wrote in an email to members of Trump's legal team in May 2021, according to the Post. A spokeswoman for Cipollone declined to comment to the Post on Wednesday.The newly reported email underscores the efforts by the National Archives, charged with collecting and sorting presidential material, to retrieve Trump-era documents as an investigation into the handling of presidential records heats up. The FBI executed a search warrant at the former...
    Former President Donald Trump left a letter behind for President Joe Biden that the latter described as "more gracious" than he "had anticipated," according to a new report. The letter was revealed at the end of a lengthy New York Times report published Saturday, which focused on the Trump administration's handling of presidential records through the transition. Citing an aide who witnessed the moment in real time, the outlet reported that Biden discovered the letter inside a drawer in the Oval Office. It was his first time in the office since being inaugurated earlier that morning. The aide said the letter was written on two large pages and that Trump's distinctive handwriting was visible. TRUMP HAD 'HIGHLY CLASSIFIED' DOCS SENT TO MAR-A-LAGO DESPITE BEING TOLD TO TURN THEM OVER: REPORT The newly elected president went on to remark that his predecessor had been "more gracious in the letter than he had anticipated." While it has been public knowledge since Biden took office that Trump had written him a letter, its contents have remained secret. The...
    The White House press office was forced to point out that President Joe Biden does not have cancer after a Wednesday speech in Massachusetts triggered a slew of questions about whether he had just made a major health announcement. No, said a key aide, pointing out that the president was referring to a diagnosis long before he took up residence in the White House. It is just the latest example of aides playing clean-up for the gaffe-prone 79-year-old.  This time it came after Biden delivered a major climate speech and discussed the impact of emissions from oil refineries near his home in Delaware.  'You'd have to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window,' he said. 'That's why I — and so damn many other people I grew up with — have cancer and why for the longest time Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation.' The White House was forced to clarify President Joe Biden's comments in a climate speech on Wednesday, when he appeared to say he has cancer A White...

    Senior Justice Department officials Thursday described a heated White House meeting days before the January 6 attack on the Capitol, when President Donald Trump considered installing a loyalist as acting attorney general as part of his effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election. 'Early on, the president said: "What do I have to lose?"' according to Richard Donoghue, former acting deputy attorney general. He was one of three former Department of Justice officials who appeared before the House committee investigating the January 6 violence. They presented evidence of the way Trump tried to use the department to pressure key wing states into reversing Joe Biden's victory. At its heart was a plan to install Jeffrey Clark, an environmental lawyer and Trump loyalist, as the head of the department.  The matter was discussed during a tense January 3 meeting in the Oval Office, when the president asked what he had to lose.
    WARSAW, Ind. -- An Indiana pastor who confessed to "adultery" years ago with a teenager publicly informed his congregation last weekend after church leaders confronted him, the church said Tuesday.John Lowe II has resigned, New Life Christian Church and World Outreach in Warsaw said in a statement on its website.Lowe, 65, told church members Sunday that he had "committed adultery" and wanted their forgiveness. Moments later, a woman stepped to the microphone and said the pastor had a sexual relationship with her when she was 16, according to video."It was 27 years ago, not 20. ... I was just 16 when you took my virginity on your office floor. Do you remember that? I know you do," she said as Lowe stood nearby.She said the "lies and the manipulation have to stop."The church said leaders confronted Lowe recently after the woman told others about a "long-held secret." The church said the sexual conduct continued into her 20s.RELATED: Chicago archdiocese settles sex abuse suit for $1.2M to victim of ex-priest Daniel McCormack"We are hurting and broken for a woman who has...
    (CNN)Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was asked a very simple question by Fox's Bret Baier on Monday: "Do you think Donald Trump was a threat to democracy?"Here's what Esper said in response:"I think that given the events of January 6, given how he has undermined the election results, he incited people to come to DC, stirred them up that morning and failed to call them off, to me, that threatens our democracy. ... I think the answer would -- what else can you conclude, Bret?"Sit with that for a minute.Esper isn't some "Never Trumper." Or someone who routinely sought out attention in the past. He is a military man who spent time as chief of staff at the conservative Heritage Foundation. He is a former secretary of the Army. When Trump picked Esper as secretary of defense, he called him "a highly respected gentleman with a great career — West Point, Harvard, a tremendous talent." Read More THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

    CNN anchor Bianna Golodryga repeatedly pushed the misleading claim that President Joe Biden has not “mentioned” or “said” the word “abortion” since taking office. Tuesday’s news cycle was dominated by news of the draft Supreme Court decision that was leaked to Politico Monday night that would overturn the right to abortion if it goes into effect. And on CNN, shortly after Biden weighed in with a statement calling for legislators to codify the right to abortion, Golodryga asked a panel if Biden has done enough before now — while making that misleading claim: BIANNA GOLODRYGA: Democrats who have argued that this president, the President Biden, has not focused enough on this issue. He hasn’t even said the word “abortion” since taking office. How much does his approach to this issue now change? GLORIA BORGER: 100%. You know, Joe Biden in the past has had some troubles with the issue of abortion. We know that he’s a devout Catholic. We know that he’s shifted positions in the past. And so there have been some questions about what he was willing to do....
    Soon after the Orange County coroner’s office told him his eldest son had died, 81-year-old Francis Kerrigan went to the scene. It was a patch of blood-smeared pavement outside a Verizon store at a Fountain Valley strip mall. Frankie Kerrigan, 57, had profound schizophrenia, and had been on and off the streets for a decade. He resisted taking his medication, and tended to bolt if his family pushed. It looked like he had died violently on May 6, 2017. The grieving father, a retired electrical engineer, had talked to his son just days earlier. Now he was on his hands and knees, searching the pavement for anything his son had left behind. He found someone’s boot, but none of the three things he knew his son always carried — a pen, a wristwatch and a black attaché case. A body was delivered to the Kerrigans. There was a wake, a Catholic Mass and a burial in a family plot. On May 23 — 17 days after the death notification — a family friend called Francis Kerrigan to say the son...
    The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office has accused the police department of a 'serious breach of trust', saying two officers lied about an attempted carjacking of their marked police car at gunpoint. On March 19, two St. Louis (Missouri) Police Department officers, who were not identified, claimed a man tried to carjack them in their police car. The officers had responded to reported gunshots near South Tucker Boulevard and Chouteau Avenue around 3am. They said a man stepped in front of their car as they were moving, before pointing a gun through the passenger window. They also claimed he ran off without taking the car after realizing officers were inside. He was apprehended about a block away in a restaurant parking lot.  But the Circuit Attorney's Office is now saying that the man, Allen Robinson, 27, was simply crossing the street and never raised a weapon at the officers. Robinson reportedly has a rap sheet with domestic violence and first-degree property damage convictions in the local area.  The CA did not explain why the officers would lie, but said one of...
    Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson promised Wednesday to keep investigating the Biden family's foreign entanglements after The Washington Post finally confirmed the authenticity of Hunter Biden's laptop.    In a 'review' published Wednesday, The Post wrote about Hunter Biden's business dealings with the state-controlled Chinese energy company CEFC - the same topic that Grassley and Johnson have expressed a renewed interest in this week on Capitol Hill.  The newspaper admitted that much of the story had already been out there, but The Post was now confirming key details, an admission that infuriated Johnson and Grassley.  'It's clear the corporate media was complicit in helping Joe Biden get elected by suppressing what they knew would be damaging stories. They covered up for him in 2020 and continue to cover up for him now,' Johnson said in a statement to DailyMail.com. 'But facts are stubborn things. As the Bidens, the Democrats, and the media are learning, it is difficult to keep them hidden forever.' 'The Washington Post story should be viewed as what Nixon's advisers once termed, a "modified limited hangout,"' Johnson continued. ...
    As actor Will Smith seeks to redefine himself, his shattered image, his relationship with his fans and Chris Rock after his violent assault and Sunday night’s drama at the Academy Awards, it is worth remembering his ambitions are not limited to Hollywood. As Breitbart News reported just a year ago, Smith harbors ambitions for high public office and acknowledges it is a possibility “at some point” in the future. He made the revelation on the Pod Save America podcast, hosted by former Obama aides aides Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer, and Tommy Vietor, when he was asked about his political ambitions. “I think for now I’ll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I’ll consider that at some point down the line,” Smith said. “I don’t know, it’s like, I absolutely have an opinion, I’m optimistic, I’m hopeful, I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony,” he continued, before adding the proviso he will, “certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or, or, at some point ventures into the...
    As Mayor Eric Garcetti’s ambassadorial nomination faces more scrutiny in the Senate, new text messages viewed by The Times on Friday suggest that a former Garcetti spokeswoman may have been subjected to unwanted kisses and “squeezes” by one of the mayor’s most powerful aides, and later, that she didn’t speak up because she didn’t want to “bring down” the mayor. Although onetime spokeswoman Anna Bahr said she does not recall being sexually harassed by Rick Jacobs — a former top Garcetti aide and subject of a sexual misconduct lawsuit — she alleged she did hear about others being harassed. She told The Times that the subject was “something everyone talked about” in the mayor’s office. The texts were written by Bahr and another former Garcetti aide in October 2020, said Greg Smith, attorney for LAPD Officer Matthew Garza, who is suing the city over Jacobs’ alleged behavior. Smith provided the texts to The Times, which showed Bahr and the Garcetti aide discussing an individual named “Rick” at one point. Bahr said she was “pretty sure” she remembered sending the messages...
    Former President Donald Trump repeatedly 'denies knowledge' about aspects of his company in a Monday court filing by his lawyer – despite his own treatise Tuesday about his 'great company with fantastic assets.'  Trump's Bedminister, NJ lawyer filed a statement in response to New York Letitia James' latest filing – in a document that comes to light after James revealed that Trump's longtime accounting firm Mazars was parting ways with their client, after concluding they could no longer rely on a decade's worth of financial statements they helped produce. Trump blasted the move in an angry statement Tuesday night, blaming James for 'vicious intimidation tactics' against the firm, saying they were 'essentially forced to resign from a great long-term account by the prosecutorial misconduct.' Trump in his statement goes on to provide dollar figures for cash and marketable securities, escrow, reserve deposits and other categories he says lead to a net worth of $5.8 billion.  He calls the Trump Organization a 'great company with fantastic assets that are unique, extremely valuable and, in many cases, far more valuable than what...
    Progressive Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón is firing back at a railroad company that has taken shots at him for not doing more to stop train burglaries in the area, despite the company's pleas for his office's assistance.  This comes after Governor Gavin Newsom was disgusted by a ravaged rail depot - full of visible cardboard and other debris due to the thefts - in the Lincoln Heights area of the city that he visited and helped cleaned up.  In December, rail company Union Pacific - which holds jurisdiction over crime on the rails - sent a letter to DA Gascón asking for more aggressive prosecutions for cargo thieves and an end to the no-bail policy for some defendants that Gascon wants to reduce overcrowding at jails during the pandemic.   'These individuals are generally caught and released back onto the streets in less than twenty-four hours. Criminals boast to our officers that charges will be pled down to simple trespassing - which bears no serious consequence,' the letter from UP's California director of public affairs Adrian Guerrero said.  UP...
    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wants President Joe Biden to scrap his 'useless' vaccine mandates after he told the leaders of 25 states that there is 'no federal solution' to the COVID-19 pandemic, his office said on Tuesday. The Republican governors of Florida, South Dakota, Arizona and Texas plus a host of other GOP figures are calling on Biden to drop his sweeping vaccine order affecting a third of the American workforce, as well as his other nationwide COVID rules, following his comment. DeSantis' spokesperson told DailyMail.com that the president is 'abdicating responsibility and shifting blame' to the states. 'More Americans have died of COVID-19 under Biden than under Trump. Now that Biden has admitted to the nation that he has no plan to “shut down the virus,” and that there is “no federal solution,” we expect him to withdraw the unconstitutional and useless federal vaccine mandates,' DeSantis' office said.  Biden notably promised to 'shut down the virus' on the 2020 presidential campaign trail. Now just over a year later, the new Omicron variant is fueling another wave of new infections,...
    A Herndon, Virginia, man — who identified himself as a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office employee — is being held without bond for trying to solicit a minor while online. Virginia State Police said Dustin Amos, 33, is charged with two felony counts of using a communication system to solicit a minor.

He was arrested without incident once state police were able to locate him. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is assisting in the investigation.
    Vice President Kamala Harris claimed she does not thinking about whether President Biden will run again in 2024 and that they do not discuss reelection, in an interview published Thursday. A poll this week revealed that she heads the field of possible Democratic runners if Biden decides that he will be too old at the age of 81 to stand in 2024. But she said that the next election was not something that she and her boss discuss as they approach the end of their first year in office. 'I'm not going to talk about our conversations, but I will tell you this without any ambiguity: We do not talk about nor have we talked about re-election, because we haven't completed our first year and we're in the middle of a pandemic,' she told the Wall Street Journal.  She spoke soon after a series of news organizations profiled the likely Democratic runners in the event of Biden stepping aside. And a growing chorus of voices is suggesting that the president should publicly announce he will not run for a second...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee’s governor on Monday stood by his decision to sign sprawling limits on COVID-19 restrictions into law, even though his own office warned the bill would violate federal disability law and put the state at risk of losing federal funds. Republican Gov. Bill Lee, in his first public comments since The Associated Press revealed his legislative counsel’s email warning to lawmakers, said he thinks “the bill on balance is good.” He also repeated a promise for a broad review of the new law, which he previously acknowledged includes “some issues we need to work through.” But when asked directly, he would not say whether he thinks the law’s accommodations for people with disabilities — flagged last month by his office as violating federal law — need to be changed. Instead, he said, “we have to determine first what really needs to be changed” before the next legislative session in January. He also would not specify when he was told by a staff lawyer that the bill violated federal law. The bill Lee signed Nov. 12...
    Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell said Wednesday they were two of the three lawmakers who received a call from a Florida man who was convicted of threatening to kill and behead members of Congress. Frank Anthony Pezzuto, 73, was found guilty on Wednesday by a federal jury of sending 'three separate threatening communications to injure certain members of Congress,' according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida. 'The use of violent rhetoric in political speech is incitement & is definitely creating an environment where members of Congress are receiving constant death threats. Enough!' the progressive Democratic representative from Minnesota tweeted. 'Today, Florida man who left this chilling message with my staff was convicted,' she added. Swalwell tweeted: Thank you to prosecution team at @DOJCrimDiv for convicting Anthony Pezzuto, who threatened to kill me & 2 of my colleagues. Too many people today are choosing violence over voting to enact political change. We must hold all to account.' Pezzuto faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison following the conviction – a sentencing date has...
    Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have been sued over alleged racist and homophobic abuse inflicted on two staffers by their former household security boss, which is said to have included a dig at Meghan Markle.    Mia King, a black LGBR woman who served as a security operations assistant, and a John Doe, a gay and disabled man who worked as a household operations manager, claimed they were subject to racist and homophobic abuse by the billionaire couple's former head of security Liam Booth, Business Insider reports.    In their twin lawsuit, filed in San Francisco County, King said Booth would often call her 'ghetto' and complain that Meghan Markle, who is bi-racial, 'polluted the royal blood line' following her marriage to Prince Harry.  Doe also claimed that Booth, a former Secret Service agent whose race has not been disclosed, allegedly made constant comments about his homosexuality and slapped his groin at a sushi restaurant in 2018.  Pictured, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan with their family The couple run a home office operation through their California estate, pictured....
    Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman (R) The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, Carolyn Fiddler, and Matt Booker, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, David Beard, and Arjun Jaikumar. Leading Off ● WA-SoS: Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman, who is the Evergreen State’s only Republican statewide elected official, announced Tuesday that she would resign on Nov. 19 to join the Biden administration to oversee election security. (Wyman, depending on whether or not one includes Alaska as part of the West Coast, could also be called the region’s only statewide Republican.) Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee will be charged with appointing her successor, who will be up in November of 2022 for the final two years of Wyman’s term. Inslee has the chance to put a Democrat in the secretary of state’s office for the first time since the 1964 elections, but there’s no guarantee he’ll take advantage of the opportunity. Indeed, when the Associated Press’ Rachel La Corte asked the governor’s office if he might...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday said there was 'hardly a comparison' between President Joe Biden and the Trump administration as she batted down a question about the president's comment that people who defy Jan. 6th committee subpoenas should be prosecuted. Psaki was pressed on Biden's comment  Friday evening, when he first said he hopes a select House committee 'goes after them and holds them accountable.' He then got asked if those who defy subpoenas should be prosecuted, and responded: 'I do, yes.' Psaki on Friday night vouched for the 'independent role' of the DOJ – which Biden has pledged to uphold.  But she was asked about the comments point blank on Monday at the White House. 'The president continues to believe that Jan. 6 was one of the darkest days in our democracy,' Psaki said, focusing on the riot that resulted in the immediate deaths of five people. 'He also continues to believe that the Department of Justice has the purview and the independence to make decisions about prosecutions,' she said. White House press secretary Jen Psaki...
    CHICAGO — Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said all city workers need to get vaccinated to protect themselves and the public — but her office quietly revised that policy in a letter to workers. Instead, workers who don’t get vaccinated by the Oct. 15 deadline will be able to keep their jobs, though they’ll be required to test regularly, according to the letter. When announcing the vaccine mandate in August, Lightfoot said all workers would have to get their shots and be fully vaccinated by Oct. 15. That meant all workers would have to have their final shot as of Friday. Lightfoot did not mention testing in her August announcement, nor was it mentioned in a news release explaining the mandate at the time. Lightfoot has repeatedly pushed for workers to get fully vaccinated, saying it’s needed to ensure city staff is protected from coronavirus — and thereby protects the members of the public they interact with. “The only way that we can really, truly maximize safety in the workplace” is through vaccines, Lightfoot said at a news conference last week....
    Chicago police have said 'hell no' to Mayor Lori Lightfoot's plan to mandate vaccines for all city employees.  The Democrat told a press conference on Monday that shots 'are absolutely going to be required' hours after the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for over-16s - taking it beyond its emergency phase. The ruling prompted the Pentagon to order all 800,000 active service members to get the shot, while private firms including Delta Airlines and Goldman Sachs also told their staff to get the vaccine. Joe Biden has already signed an executive order requiring millions of federal staff to either get vaccinated or abide by a regular Covid testing scheme.  But cop union boss John Catanzara told Fox: 'This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences. None. 'To mandate anybody to get that vaccine, without that data as a baseline, amongst other issues, is a "hell, no" for us. 'We are 100% against mandated vaccines for our members,' he added. Mayor Lori Lightfoot told a press conference on Monday that shots 'are absolutely going to be required' hours...

    Right-wing Pastor Jeff Jansen has baselessly claimed that he knows “for a fact” that former President Donald Trump was inaugurated on March 4. Jansen made the claim in a two-part video posted to Instagram on Sunday, titled “Prophetic Insights, Times & Season,” which was later flagged by media watchdog Right Wing Watch. Right-wing pastor Jeff Jansen “prophesied” that Trump would be back in office by April. Then he moved the date to June.

There are many that are still standing on the premise of what’s happening with President Trump,” he said. “As a matter of fact, I know for a fact that he has already been inaugurated.” Jansen made the comments after already claiming that Trump would return to the White House in June after officials worked to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump remains a former commander-in-chief, with President Joe Biden still in office, as there was not...

    The true state of Donald and Melania Trump's marriage is the last unanswered mystery surrounding the country's 45th president, according to the man who has written three books on his turbulent years. 'Nobody really knows where Melania lives,' Michael Wolff, the New York Times bestselling author of Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency, told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. 'She is not with him a lot of the times. This was true when he was in the White House and it's true now. 'People around Trump still have questions, but they don't want to ask those questions. It remains the third rail that nobody wants to touch.' Wolff got no closer to finding the answer to the relationship conundrum when he was invited to dinner with the couple at Trump's Florida club, Mar-a-Lago. He sat for hours with the two of them who gave the appearance of being a happy couple. 'They carried it off with great elan,' he said. 'Dinner was like a wedding party, with Donald and Melania at the head table, greeting people the entire...

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade asked McCarthy, who would be at the front of the line to be the next Speaker of the House if Republicans regained control of the chamber in 2022, what he thought about rumors that the former president might also express an interest in that position. (RELATED: POLL: 78% Of Capitol Hill Staffers Believe GOP Will Take Back The House In 2022) WATCH: Kilmeade said he had heard “talk out there” about the possibility that Trump could run for a House seat or be made House Speaker “Would you be for President Trump becoming speaker?” he asked. “You know, I have talked to President Trump many times,” McCarthy replied. “He tells me he wants me speaker, and I think he should be president.” McCarthy’s response was just garbled enough that some believed he said Trump wanted to be speaker himself.

    Former President Donald blasted former GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock after she mocked him by saying most elected Republicans want him to disappear – by brandishing an Oval Office photo that showed the two of them together. The former northern Virginia lawmaker, who lost her seat in 2018 in a defeat her supporters blame on having Trump as the head of the party, went after Trump in an appearance on NBC's 'Meet the Press' Sunday.  She was criticizing members of her own party who failed to back a commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol riot, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warning the probe could be a political liability. 'I understand Republicans want to get away from Donald Trump. I mean, if Donald Trump disappeared tomorrow, I don't think you'd have many Republicans in the search party, right?' she said.

    The Associated Press took care to avoid publishing stories that would reflect negatively on Hamas, a former reporter for the outlet alleged in a 2014 column, even when the terrorist group launched rockets outside the AP’s offices. “When Hamas’s leaders surveyed their assets before this summer’s round of fighting, they knew that among those assets was the international press,” former AP reporter Matti Friedman wrote in a November 2014 column for The Atlantic, which began circulating anew online over the weekend. Friedman added: “The AP staff in Gaza City would witness a rocket launch right beside their office, endangering reporters and other civilians nearby — and the AP wouldn’t report it, not even in AP articles about Israeli claims that Hamas was launching rockets from residential areas. (This happened.) Hamas fighters would burst into the AP’s Gaza bureau and threaten the staff — and the AP wouldn’t report it. (This also happened.) Cameramen waiting outside Shifa Hospital in Gaza City would film the arrival of civilian casualties and then, at a signal from an official, turn off their cameras when wounded and...

    President Joe Biden said he was not given a head's up that federal agents were going to carry out a raid on Rudy Giuliani's apartment and office in New York City and that he learned about it at the same time as the public.  'I give you my word, I was not,' Biden said told NBC's Craig Melvin at the White House Thursday morning in an interview that will air Friday on the 'Today Show.' 'I made a pledge,' Biden continued. 'I would not interfere in any way — order or try to stop any investigation the Justice Department had in their way. I learned about that last night when the rest of the world learned about it.'  Federal prosecutors have been looking at Giuliani and his work in the Ukraine for nearly 1-1/2 years. Wednesday's morning raid - where Giuliani's electronics were seized - came after prosecutors stepped up their investigation into the former New York City mayor after it was put on hold last summer out of concerns it was too close to the election. And Giuliani's son Andrew...

    Los Angeles County's sheriff has revealed that he has only spoken to the county's new reform-minded district attorney once since he took office as he warns that criminals believe they will face no consequences under his tenure. Sheriff Alex Villanueva is an outspoken critic of DA George Gascón, who won his seat this past fall on a reform agenda that Villanueva says gives comfort to criminals and shortchanges victims. Villanueva is increasingly concerned with whether Gascón will fully prosecute any violent protesters as the city braces for possible demonstrations in the wake of the police-involved deaths of Daunte Wright in Minneapolis, 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago and the pending verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the officer involved in George Floyd's death. 'If there is a lack of prosecutorial fist, that might actually embolden some of our antifa, anarchist crowd, the radical elements, to try to hijack peaceful protest for their own personal gain or agendas', Villanueva said in an appearance on Fox 11 LA in which he said he's had only one phone call with Gascón since he took...
    Former President Donald Trump slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci as a “promoter,” who he listened to while in office but did not act on his advice because "he is wrong so much." “I thought rather than firing him, you know, I listened to him, but I didn't do what he said because, frankly, his record is not a good record,” Trump told Lisa Boothe of Fauci on her new podcast Monday. Trump said that he likes the nation's top infectious diseases expert on a personal level but that he didn't “elevate” him while he was in office, noting he’s been in the public spotlight for 40 years. “He's a great promoter. He's really a promoter more than anything else. And I think he's, you know, I always say he's a better pitcher of a baseball than he is at what he does because he is wrong so much,” he added.
