    Donald Trump is angling to win back his social media supremacy just 10 days before the first official event of his 2024 presidential campaign. Once commanding social media accounts that were among the most watched on Facebook and Twitter, Trump was booted off of both platforms over his actions related to the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. He was reinstated to Twitter thanks to the results of a public user poll conducted by its new eccentric billionaire owner, Elon Musk.  And on Tuesday, Trump's campaign sent a letter to Facebook's parent company Meta asking for a sit-down to discuss bringing the ex-president back online for the sake of free speech, according to NBC News. 'We believe that the ban on President Trump’s account on Facebook has dramatically distorted and inhibited the public discourse,' the letter reportedly said.

    Details from Dana White's physical altercation with his wife, Anne, are unlikely to be revealed publicly, Mexican police have told ESPN. The UFC president was seen slapping his wife at a nightclub in Cabo San Lucas on New Year's Eve. Cell phone footage has since been published by TMZ, showing the couple arguing before exchanging blows. A Cabo San Lucas police spokesman told ESPN that Mexican law keeps domestic-violence cases 'very private,' and declined to say if the department was investigating the fight. Typically a victim needs to file a report and give a statement before Mexican police will investigate, Céline González, a political science at Mexico's Center for Research and Teaching in Economics, told ESPN. 'The onus to bring evidence is always on the victim,' González told ESPN. 'It's her job to report, and in Mexico that process isn't easy.'

    Supporters of Jair Bolsonaro are clamoring to see the self-exiled former Brazilian president outside his Florida refuge this week, where he is recovering after being hospitalized with severe stomach pain. Bolsonaro, a close ally of former US president Donald Trump, flew to Florida rather than attend the January 1 inauguration of his successor Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva after having made allegations about the integrity of October elections. He was rushed to hospital on January 9, just one day after thousands of his loyal followers swarmed Brasilia, vandalizing the presidential palace and other institutions - which Democrats compared to the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol - but was ultimately discharged on Tuesday. Brazilians living across the US have since travelled to the sleepy Florida suburb of Kissimmee, lining up on the grass outside their idol's rental home and chanting slogans of support while openly praying for his recovery. Some families even forwent planned trips to nearby Disney World, choosing instead to queue up opposite Bolsonaro's bolthole in the hopes of getting the slightest glimpse of him. It comes as dozens of...
    Marjorie Taylor Greene has agreed to stop using Dr. Dre's music after she was slapped with a cease and desist letter from the rapper following usage of his song in a video promoting the new House Republican majority. The Republican representative, who used a riff of his track Still D.R.E. in her video, informed Dre's attorney she would no longer be using his 'copyright' in a letter sent from her staff and obtained by TMZ. 'On behalf of Congresswoman Greene, please be advised that no further use of Mr. Young's copyright will be made by a political committee or via social media outlet she controls,' the letter in part read. 'Nothing herein shall be deemed an admission of any fact or waiver of any rights or defenses,' it added.

    Michael Jackson's untimely death came as a 'high pitched scream in the heart' for Elizabeth Taylor, who sobbed hysterically 'for hours' after learning her close friend was gone, according to a new book. The late actress poured her heart out to the King of Pop in a heart-wrenching letter she wrote after his 2009 overdose, which is revealed for the first time in new biography, Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit and Glamour of an Icon, by Kate Andersen Brower published December 6.  In the emotional posthumous note, the Hollywood icon said Jackson was in her 'thoughts and heart continuously' and that she was in 'pain' over his loss.  The poignant message marked the end of an unlikely friendship between two child stars that lasted for 25 years.

    Anna Webber/Getty Images In 2020, Washington Post columnist Max Boot happily served as one of the most useful idiots in Xi Jinping’s arsenal, prematurely declaring that the genocidal regime that unleashed the coronavirus on the rest of the world had won the pandemic. “China’s success is mainly due to the application of science in a country where people are taught to respect science,” explained Boot, who found it within himself to heap praise upon the Chinese Communist Party for, of all things, separating Covid-positive children from their parents. “If the virus were a human enemy, [Donald] Trump would have long ago run up the white flag, while China would be accepting its unconditional surrender,” he concluded, putting a bow on a staggering #Resistance artifact that boasted the jaw-dropping title: “China is beating the coronavirus while Trump leads America to defeat.” Fast-forward to this week, and Boot has been forced to admit that you do not, under any circumstances, have to hand it to the Chinese Communist Party. His epiphany, however, came without an admission of his own error in judgment....
    AP Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.It was no secret during the Trump presidency that if you wanted to curry favor you should stay at Donald Trump’s swanky and controversial hotel when you were in Washington, D.C. In fact, at least 31 foreign governments booked rooms at the hotel during his time in office—and as the majority owner of the hotel (his adult children owned small shares) that was money that went straight into his pocket. Now, further details of just how lavishly foreign governments spent—often at crucial times for the causes they were taking up with the White House—are starting to emerge.  According to a letter released on Monday by the Congressional House Committee on Government Oversight, six countries in particular—Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, China, Qatar and Turkey—all of which had complicated relationships with the United States, ran up at least $750,000 in bills at the Trump’s D.C. hotel. This happened  at “sensitive times,” according to the letter, when they were seeking diplomatic favor from the White...
    DELPHI murders suspect Richard Allen has revealed unspecified safety fears have "forced" his wife to quit her job in a letter written from jail.

    The title of your £28-a-copy book, due to be published on January 10, has come under widespread scrutiny. And for good reason. You have chosen to call it ‘Spare’, no doubt in reference to the phrase ‘an heir and a spare’, coined in the 1890s by the American socialite Consuelo Vanderbilt. In your case — and this is an impression enhanced by your gloomy expression on the cover — the word has worrying connotations. And they’re all smacking of self-pity. Surplus to requirements; left out in the cold. The Spanish version of your tome is subtitled En La Sombra: ‘in the shadow’. Others — and congrats on securing translations into 16 languages, by the way — refer to ‘Leftover’ and even ‘Reservist’.

    'Progressive' Democrats have been slammed for penning an open letter to Joe Biden calling on him to negotiate a ceasefire in Ukraine with Vladimir Putin.  Thirty left-wing politicians - among them Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar - wrote to Biden on Monday saying that 'direct talks with Russia' to 'seek a rapid end to the conflict' should be his 'top priority'. But Mark Hertling, America's former top general in Europe, branded the group 'exceedingly naive' while Bill Browder, a financier targeted by the Russian state, accused them of 'rewarding Putin's murderous aggression.'  Within hours the group had been forced to backtrack, but it will do little to assuage fears in Kyiv that the West's support - which has been crucial in halting Russia's bloody assault - could falter as the cost of Putin's war on energy begins to bite. Negotiating a ceasefire in Ukraine with Vladimir Putin should be America's 'top priority', at least according to dozens of left-wing US Democrats The 'progressives' wrote to Biden Monday urging him to 'seek a rapid end to the conflict' that was 'acceptable...
    Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump threatened a defamation lawsuit this week as he continues to complain about the Pulitzer Prize committee awarding the 2018 prize for national reporting to the New York Times and The Washington Post for their coverage “on Russian interference in the U.S. election and its connections to the Trump campaign.” Trump’s previous statements blasting the award and decrying the reporting honored by the Pulitzer as the “Russia hoax” led to an internal investigation by the committee, which released its findings in July. The Pulitzer committee’s review, which involved two separate independent investigations, roundly rejected Trump’s claims that the reporting was inaccurate. “Both reviews were conducted by individuals with no connection to the institutions whose work was under examination, nor any connection to each other,” the board explained in a statement, adding: The separate reviews converged in their conclusions: that no passages or headlines, contentions or assertions in any of the winning submissions were discredited by facts that emerged subsequent to the conferral of the prizes On Thursday, Trump’s legal team sent a letter to...
    Kanye West was told in late September, before his fashion week antics and anti-Semitic stream of posts, that he would no longer be welcome to bank with JPMorgan Chase. On Wednesday evening, conservative commentator Candace Owens tweeted out images of a letter sent to Kanye West from the bank advising him he had until November 21 to transfer his accounts elsewhere. No reason was provided for the bank's decision, nor did Owens offer one. However, the insinuation of the tweet's timing is that West was de-banked following several recent controversial episodes, including sending models down his runway during Paris fashion week wearing shirts that read 'White Lives Matter,' in addition to the targeted bullying of a Vogue fashion editor on his Instagram page, and a series of anti-Semitic statements that earned him removal from Instagram and Twitter. Owens made the announcement hours before a bizarre reunion between West and fellow Kim Kardashian ex Ray J (and non-ex Kid Rock) on the red carpet for the DailyWire's latest film - The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of...
    Pennsylvania Democratic Senate hopeful John Fetterman thrice refused to commit to provide additional medical records to prove he's fit to serve post-stroke, during an interview Wednesday.  Fetterman participated in a livestreamed Q&A with PennLive's editorial board where he was again asked if he'd be releasing more information from his doctor before the November 8 midterm election, after being non-committal in an interview Tuesday with NBC News.  'I would say that if there was anything that changed, or whatever, I absolutely would have updated that, other than the progress that I have made is evident,' Fetterman answered.  On June 3, Fetterman released a letter from his cardiologist who had seen him the day before in the aftermath of his May 13 stroke, which was caused by a heart condition.  'The prognosis I can give for John's heart is this: if he takes his medications, eats healthy, and exercises, he'll be fine,' Dr. Ramesh Chandra wrote at the time. 'If he does what I've told him, and I do believe he is taking his recovery and his health very seriously at this time, he should be able to campaign...
    On Thursday, POLITICO reported that former Trump Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark is struggling to fend off disciplinary actions, and potentially the loss of his law license, as the Washington, D.C. bar investigates his role in the efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. "Jeffrey Clark appeared for a lengthy proceeding Thursday that is a prelude to a disciplinary hearing on claims he violated legal ethics in his persistent efforts to undercut the legitimacy of the 2020 election," reported Kyle Cheney and Josh Gerstein. "The heart of the issue: Did Clark merely offer up unwise suggestions to his superiors — hardly the basis for disciplinary action — or did his persistence in the face of a lack of evidence of fraud render his conduct so inappropriate that he should be punished?" Clark allegedly gave the White House advice on how to fight the election results, in violation of DOJ communication policies, and in particular wanted to send a letter to officials in Georgia advising them on nonexistent "irregularities" in their vote count. Trump had wanted to appoint...
    Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok sued the bureau for wrongful termination in 2019 The Department of Justice (DOJ) released the text of a letter explaining FBI agent Peter Strzok's 2018 firing in its ongoing court battle over the federal officer's termination under the Trump administration. The department said the 22-year FBI veteran had an 'extremely damaging impact to our organization, which will take years to overcome.' Strzok sued the FBI in 2019, accusing the bureau of wrongfully letting him go.  He had been fired following the release of text messages that show his opposition to Donald Trump and his leadership, including one in 2016 that read: 'Hillary should win 100,000,000 - 0.' It also emerged at the time that he was having an affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page. The texts surfaced when both Strzok and Page had been working on the DOJ investigation into whether the Trump 2016 campaign colluded with or was aided to victory by Russia. Strzok was initially pulled off the investigation before being fired altogether by then-FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich. The DOJ released the text...
    JOE Rogan’s estranged dad has challenged the Spotify superstar to a man-to-man chat on his podcast over what he describes as “false” claims of violence. In bombshell legal papers, Joseph Rogan, 80, threatened a defamation lawsuit against the 55-year-old Joe Rogan Experience host and his streaming giant employer. 5Joseph Rogan Sr is threatening a defamation lawsuit against his estranged podcast star sonCredit: Alex Kent for The US Sun 5Joe Rogan has publicly referred to his father as a 'psychotic person'Credit: YouTube Mr. Rogan said he wants to look Joe in the eye while he gives him his side of the story and asked him: “Do you fear confronting the truth?” It comes after the retired New Jersey cop last week described his namesake son’s claims of a violent upbringing as “lies” in an exclusive interview with The U.S. Sun. Father and son have not seen or spoken to each other since Joe was seven, almost 50 years ago, but Joe has publicly referred to his father as a “psychotic person” and “very, very violent”.

    Meghan Markle performed a 'small love letter to Prince Harry with her giggles, nose wrinkles and coy expressions' - while he looked 'much more ill at ease on his return to the UK', a body language expert has claimed. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to Britain this week to attend the One Young World summit in Manchester this evening, where Meghan, 41, gave a keynote speech. In her address to the 2,000 or so guests, the mother-of-two appeared to offer a 'small love letter' to her husband, according to body language expert Judi James, who noted her 'long blinks and nose-wrinkles as she referenced him'. However, while the Duchess apparently appeared 'regal and elegant' beside her partner, Harry looked 'much more ill-at-ease on his return to the UK, responding by looking down and then upward with what looked like a sigh', said the expert. Tonight was the couple's first public appearance in Britain since returning for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June as Harry's legal battle with the Home Office rumbles on after they were denied 24/7 taxpayer-funded armed police...
    President Biden on Friday made two new appointments to the President's Intelligence Advisory Board and one of them is among the 51 former intelligence officials who signed on to a letter suggesting the Hunter Biden laptop was a product of Russian disinformation.  Jeremy Bash, the former chief of staff at the Pentagon and the CIA under President Obama, will now sit on a 16-seat board that serves to give the president advice on matters related to national intelligence.  Bash became an outspoken national security pundit for MSNBC during the Trump years.  The other appointment was Blair Effron, cofounder of Centerview Partners, an investment banking and advisory firm.  Just after the Hunter Biden laptop saga began with a story that broke in the New York Post in October 2020, Bash joined 50 former intelligence officials who signed outlining their belief that the disclosure of Hunter Biden emails 'has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.'  The move from the White House was revealed as further scandals connected to the President's son and his story surfaced.

    A successful neonatologist charged with trying to hire a hitman off the dark web to kidnap his estranged wife, inject her with heroin, and blackmail her with videos pleaded guilty on Wednesday. The doctor, Ron Ilg, told a court in Washington State that he was a “broken man” in 2021 when he contacted various websites to “not only injure one of my partners but also kidnap my wife.” According to prosecutors, Ilg, the former chief medical director of a multistate neonatology management group, first tried to orchestrate an assault on a former colleague who he believed was involved in an internal workplace investigation against him. The messages obtained by the government asked the hitman to deliver a “significant beating” that would “injure both hands significantly or break the hands.” He allegedly wired the service $2,000 in bitcoin as compensation. Experts who study these websites say there is no evidence they work, and there was no indication that the assault Ilg requested was carried out. But a month later, prosecutors say, he contacted the same website to ask that they...
    Russians are showing their support for Vladimir Putin and his invasion of Ukraine by branding themselves with the 'Z' symbol using a red hot poker. Nexta, a Belarusian media outlet, shared a video on their official Twitter account which featured a shirtless man being branded on his chest.  The letter 'Z' has become a sinister symbol marking support for Russia's barbaric invasion of Ukraine with comparisons to the Nazi's swastika. Pictured: Russians are showing their support for their president Vladimir Putin and his brutal invasion of Ukraine by branding themselves with the controversial 'Z' symbol using a hot poker First seen on tanks and armoured vehicles on the battlefield, the letter Z has since been adopted for propaganda purposes by Vladimir Putin's supporters back home. It has appeared on cars, clothing and signs and in images such as a sick photo of a Z reportedly made by Russian soldiers from the badges of Ukrainian troops killed in action. In the video, the shitless man is leaning back against a piece of scrap metal in what looks like a shed full of...
    Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday he is planning to sue CNN “over their repeated defamatory statements against me” unless they apologize, retract or correct their coverage of him. Trump added that he “will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 Election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our Country!” Trump made the announcement in a statement via his Save America PAC and included a letter from the law firm Ifrah Law. The letter titled, “Notice of Intent to Bring Civil Action for Defamation,” is addressed to Chris Licht, CNN Chief Executive Officer, and David Vigilante, CNN Executive Vice President and General Counsel. Trump is known for being litigious and has often threatened lawsuits against critics, which never materialize. It is unclear what grounds Trump would have to sue CNN or other media outlets over claims regarding the 2020 presidential election, which have been debunked by various government agencies and investigations...
    Former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon managed to catch a break in his ongoing criminal trial for defying a January 6 committee subpoena on Wednesday, when the presiding judge allowed his legal team to use a letter from his old boss as evidence. District Judge Carl Nichols allowed Bannon to inform jurors about Trump's dispatch to him earlier this month, where the ex-president wrote he was waiving his claim to executive privilege over Bannon's testimony to Congress. The right-wing activist's legal effort got off to a shaky start before the trial even began, when Nichols last week barred the Trump confidante from asserting several potential defenses - prompting his exasperated lawyer to ask 'what is the point of going to trial here' under those circumstances. But the admittance of the letter could be a potential boost for his case, which rests on Bannon's lawyers arguing that he did willfully ignore House investigators' subpoena. He had abruptly reversed-course earlier this month, offering to sit for a public hearing before the committee roughly 10 months after being subpoenaed. Bannon's attorneys sent the...
      Former President Trump tore into the 'very disloyal' PGA and warned golfers who stick by the tournament they will lose out after family members of 9/11 victims signed on to a letter urging him to cancel the Saudi-backed LIV tournament.  'All of those golfers that remain “loyal” to the very disloyal PGA, in all of its different forms, will pay a big price when the inevitable MERGER with LIV comes, and you get nothing but a big “thank you” from PGA officials who are making Millions of Dollars a year,' Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social on Monday morning.  'If you don’t take the money now, you will get nothing after the merger takes place, and only say how smart the original signees were. Good luck to all, and congratulations to really talented Cam Smith on his incredible WIN!'  Meanwhile the families of 9/11 victims are seeking a meeting with the former president over his decision to host the LIV tournament at his New Jersey Bedminster Golf Club from July 29 to 31.  Their group 9/11...
    In this article TWTRThe official profile of Elon Musk on the social network Twitter.Rafael Henrique | Lightrocket | Getty ImagesThe Securities and Exchange Commission asked billionaire Elon Musk for more information on a tweet related to his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter that he's recently tried to call off, a new regulatory filing Thursday shows. The disclosure sheds light on how Musk represented his commitment to the deal to the SEC, even as he probed Twitter for information on spam accounts on the platform. It also shows how the deal could again bring Musk into the crosshairs of the agency. In a letter dated June 7, Musk's lawyer and Skadden partner Mike Ringler responded to questions the SEC's Office of Mergers and Acquisitions sent a few days earlier. The letter reiterates the clarification the SEC sought from Musk, including whether an earlier filing should be amended based on his tweet that the Twitter deal "cannot move forward" until the company provides more information on its spam accounts. "The term 'cannot' suggests that Mr. Musk and his affiliates are exercising a...
    Brittney Griner has made an appeal to President Joe Biden in a letter passed to the White House through her representatives saying she feared she might never return home and asking that he not “forget about me and the other American Detainees.” Griner’s agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas said the letter was delivered on Monday. Most of the letter’s contents to President Biden remain private, though Griner’s representatives shared a few lines from the hand-written note. ″…As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever,” Griner wrote. “On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran,” the Phoenix Mercury center added. “It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.” The two-time Olympic gold medalist is in the midst of a trial in Russia that began last...
    Prince Harry appeared without his brother Prince William as he paid tribute to his mother's legacy as he presented the Diana Awards, on what would have been her 61st birthday.  The Duke of Sussex shared a series of video messages to the young recipients in the virtual ceremony that was broadcast online this afternoon, telling them that she still thinks about her every day. 'There isn't a day during the past two and a half decades where I haven't thought about the mark she left, not only on me and my brother, but on all of our lives,' he said. 'I see her legacy in all of you. I see her legacy in a Diana Award community that spans multiple generations. I see her legacy every time I meet with families, young people, and children from all corner of the world. 'And I see my mum's legacy when I look at my own children every single day.'  Prince William, 40, did not take part in the ceremony and instead sent a letter to the winners saying his mother would be 'so proud'...
    NASHVILLE, Tennessee – A group of off-duty National Guard members and supporters were led by Captain Mickey Shelton and State Representative Jerry Sexton (R-Grainger) in delivering a letter to Governor Bill Lee’s office imploring him to take meaningful action to save the jobs of guardsmen who are about to be fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine after the “Guard Freedom” event that was held at Legislative Plaza midday on Wednesday. Lee was absent from his office and after a few moments, Shelton and Sexton were able to present the letter to Ben Silverman, who is Lee’s personal aide. During the exchange, a partition and a female state trooper separated the pair and the 30 or so supporters from Lee’s aide. “We wanted to give Governor Lee this letter, in regards to each one of these things and what he can do about it. We invited him to our event. I don’t know what prior engagement he had but I was sad not to see him there. I’m sure there was something more important that he couldn’t be there,” Shelton said...
    Attorney Ken Klukowski is accusing the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol of withholding evidence, saying that it falsely accused him of participating in a plot to overturn the 2020 election. Klukowski was one of over 1,000 witnesses called to testify before the committee behind closed doors. He sat for several depositions, and for several hours at a time.

    Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks (pictured above) has shared an email of former President Donald Trump’s alleged instructions for Senate and House Republicans seeking preemptive pardons for their roles in helping Trump overturn the 2020 presidential election. The January 11, 2021 email — which Brooks addressed to then-Special Assistant to the President and Oval Office Operations Coordinator Molly Michael — begins with the line, “President Trump asked me to send you this letter.” “It is clear that deep-pocketed and vitriolic Socialist Democrats (with perhaps some liberal Republican help) are going to abuse America’s judicial system by targeting numerous Republicans with sham charges deriving from our recent fight for honest and accurate elections, and speeches related thereto,” the email continues. Brooks then suggested that pardons be granted to any Republican who signed onto Texas’ lawsuit asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reject the outcome of the election, as well as any Congress members who rejected the Electoral College vote submissions of Arizona and Pennsylvania. \u201cRep. Mo Brooks just texted this document to @CBSNews\u201d — Robert Costa (@Robert Costa) 1656022959 The email shows...
    Former President Donald Trump reacted to the fourth January 6 committee hearing Thursday by resharing a letter sent to him last summer by a Pennsylvania official who was trying to get his endorsement for governor.  The June 2021 letter, from former Pennsylvania gubernatorial hopeful Bill McSwain, suggests election fraud wasn't fully investigated in the commonwealth thanks to former Attorney General Bill Barr.    'On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,' said McSwain, who was then serving as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.   Former President Donald Trump (left) reacted to the fourth January 6 committee hearing Thursday by resharing a letter sent to him in June 2021 by former U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain (right) of Pennsylvania alleging that 'election irregularities' weren't investigated  Former President Donald Trump included a copy of the letter in a statement Thursday saying: 'To the Unselect Committee - Have you seen this letter?

    Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday shared a threatening letter mailed to his family and warned 'there's violence in the future.' He said the letter was sent to his home and addressed to his wife, Sofia.  The congressman from Illinois is one of two Republicans serving on the committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol. Former President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the panel for its work.  The letter accuses Kinzinger of betraying his country and 'god-fearing families.' The congressman defied Republican leadership when he took a role on the panel. Kinzinger posted a photo of the letter to his twitter account, noting its contents were 'threatening the life of my family.' It mentions the couple's son, Christian Adam Kinzinger, who was born in January.  'That pimp you married not only broke his oath, he sold his soul. Yours and Christian's too,' the letter reads.  'Although it might take time, he will be executed. But don't worry! You and Christian will be joining Adam in hell too!,' the letter said.

    Andrew Harnik-Pool/Getty Images Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of two Republican members of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, tweeted a copy of a profane and threatening letter vowing to execute him, his wife, and their 5-month-old baby. Kinzinger appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday and talked to the show’s host George Stephanopoulos about the threat, saying that he wasn’t personally concerned for himself but was for his family, and they were especially concerned because the letter had been mailed locally a few days ago and sent directly to his home. The Illinois congressman has been a target for former President Donald Trump’s ire, as one of only ten House Republicans to vote to impeach him during Trump’s second impeachment, and he and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) were the only two who voted to create the House Select Committee to investigate Jan. 6.

    A Klay Thompson imposter has received a lifetime ban from Golden State Warriors home games after conning his way onto the court for a 10-minute shootaround prior to Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night in San Francisco. That man, YouTube prankster Dawson Gurley, revealed his suspension on Twitter Tuesday, potentially signaling the end of a bit that began during the Warriors' 2015 title run.  'Banned bc I walked past 5 layers of security guards (who willingly let me through security without asking for ID) & shot around on the court for 10 minutes,' Gurley tweeted alongside a photograph of the letter he received from Golden State. He also posted a picture of himself on the court, flashing a hand gesture players use to celebrate a made 3-point attempt, as Thompson often does.  A Klay Thompson imposter has received a lifetime ban from Golden State Warriors home games after conning his way onto the court for a 10-minute shootaround prior to Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night in San Francisco.

He stuck the letter in the building for all to see and warned that, unless reimbursed, he'd lodge a formal complaint with the police. MORE ON SHOCKING NEIGHBOURSHORROR DEATH...
    CNN randomly brought on a former classmate of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Thursday to blast the recent opinion draft leak written by the judge that suggested Roe v. Wade could potentially be overturned this year. Penn State University Professor and former Alito Princeton classmate Susan Squier joined CNN’s New Day and told co-host John Berman that the opinion draft reads like “greatest hits of misogyny” and likened Alito’s thinking on abortion to the Salem Witch Trials. “I mean, I have read a lot of medical history going back for doing literature and medicine, and his is like a greatest hits of misogyny,” she said. Squier added at another point that she read the full draft opinion and it left her “stunned” and “angry.” “He doesn’t consider the context. And this man was a historian at Princeton. He was a double major in history and Poli sci. But it is as if he doesn’t believe history actually involves a record of things changing. Instead, it is history as, ‘let’s go back to the Salem witch trials.’ It...
    Maricopa County officials held a press conference and issued a response Wednesday to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s first Interim Report on the 2020 Maricopa County independent ballot audit, prompting a sharp reaction from Brnovich. He said in a letter to supporters, “[T]he Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and County Recorder continue to throw stones at Attorney General Brnovich instead of working to address the serious issues identified in the interim report.” Jen Wright, head of his Elections Integrity Unit, who has lengthy experience investigating voter fraud for the Arizona Republican Party, sent a response back to their attorney with “serious concerns.” Brnovich also released a video response, calling the county officials out for attacking him over the findings instead of addressing them. He asked why they ignored his finding that “up to 200,000 ballots did not have the proper chain of custody.” Second, “[A]s far as ballot signature authentication, you know, whether it took six seconds, eight seconds, or 10 seconds, why doesn’t the Board of Supervisors tell us exactly what they did, how long it took, and whether...
    Amber Heard threatened to publicly serve Johnny Depp with a restraining order if he did not continue financially supporting her lifestyle after she filed for divorce, court exhibits from the couple's $100million defamation trial reveal.  Jurors on Wednesday were shown a letter Heard's attorney had sent to Depp's legal team in May 2016, just a few days after the actress filed to end their marriage following a fight at their home.  Through her lawyer, Heard, 36, issued a list of financial and property demands, with the Aquaman star promising to 'keep this matter out of the spotlight' if her requests were granted.   Among her demands was the 'exclusive use and possession' of the black Range Rover she drove, with Depp continuing to make payments towards the vehicle.  She also wanted to carry on living rent free in three Los Angeles penthouses she and her friends were staying in, all owned by Depp, and asked for her estranged husband to cover $125,000 of her legal and accounting fees. Amber Heard (pictured entering the courtroom Thursday) sent Johnny Depp a laundry list of demands,...
    A group of 133 Republicans in Congress are questioning Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' 'suitability for office' as they double down on claims that he is 'dismantling the security' of the southern border. 'Your actions have willingly endangered American citizens, undermined the rule of law and our nation's sovereignty,' reads the letter, led by Border Security Caucus co-chair Brian Babin of Texas and Republican Study Committee Chair Jim Bank of Indiana. 'Your failure to secure the border and enforce the laws passed by Congress raise grave questions about your suitability for office,' the letter to Mayorkas continues. Republicans are writing to the DHS head as the southern border crisis escalates with a two-decade high number of encounters in March 2022 and the impending end to pandemic-era migration deportation policy of Title 42. Signers of the letter include the top three ranking Republicans – House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is leading a delegation to the southern border on Monday, as well as Republican Whip Steve Scalise and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik. 'We write to address your actions to...
    Senator Ted Cruz and hundreds of other prominent conservatives have signed an open letter to Yale Law School, calling on administrators to hold protesters accountable for disrupting a free speech event last month. The letter, addressed to Yale Law School Dean Heather Gerken and three associate deans, was sent on Thursday, referencing what its authors described as the 'deeply disturbing incident' that took place on campus on March 10, when a group of some 120 students shouted down and threatened a conservative panelist during a free speech debate. Cruz, a Republican from Texas, is scheduled to visit Yale Law School at the invitation of the school's William F Buckley Jr program on Monday night to record an episode of Verdict, the political podcast that he co-hosts. The lawmaker is set to be met with his own protests - but has asked them to remain civil, and says he welcomes questions afterwards from people who disagree with his views.  When Cruz's visit was announced last week, progressive Yale Law students signaled their intention to stage another protest, arguing that the outspoken...

    Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday filed a lawsuit against the state's ethics commission, the latest move in an ongoing dispute over his earnings from a book about his efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Albany, Cuomo accused the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, JCOPE, of violating his constitutional rights and showing 'extraordinary bias against him.' A spokesperson for JCOPE said they had no comment. In December, JCOPE ordered Cuomo to turn over money from his book 'American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.'  Cuomo's camp decried the order and promised a legal fight. Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday filed a lawsuit against the state's ethics commission 'The (former) Governor will seek the intercession of the court to protect his rights and prevent further abuses by JCOPE of its authority,' Justice James McGuire said in January in the letter to commission chair Jose L. Nieves. 'I therefore put JCOPE’s commissioners and its staff on notice that they must preserve all records, including emails, texts, and all...
    One of two former prosecutors in charge of the Manhattan district attorney's criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump and his business dealings, who suddenly resigned last month, has said in his resignation letter how he believes the former president was 'guilty of numerous felony violations' and that it was 'a grave failure of justice' not to hold him accountable. Mark Pomerantz, 70, a top deputy who had been tasked with running the investigation on a day-to-day basis had begun the Trump probe under former District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.  Current DA Alvin Bragg asked him to stay on in the role when he took office in January.  But Pomerantz, a former mafia prosecutor, suddenly resigned from his post in February after Bragg stopped short of indicting Trump.  He makes clear in his resignation letter, as seen by the New York Times, that he believes the former president is guilty of various felonies. 'I believe that Donald Trump is guilty of numerous felony violations of the Penal Law in connection with the preparation and use of his annual Statements of Financial...
    In a period when conservatives lean heavily on anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and policies in order to distract voters from issues that actually matter—like the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic—it can become overwhelming to even begin to decide who is the worst, most dangerous Republican out there. But Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is certainly on the list. Abbott’s been steadfast in ignoring pleas from LGBTQ+ people and allies, but now that a number of global businesses are speaking up, it’s possible he’ll get the message. In this case, 65 major companies signed an open letter published in The Dallas Morning News on Friday, in which the signees implore the governor to stop anti-LGBTQ+ efforts in the state. There are some seriously big names on the list, including Google, IBM, Patreon, Ikea, LinkedIn, Apple, PayPal, Microsoft, Capital One, and more.  RELATED: DeSantis won’t like this move by Disney, but is it enough to change his mind? "Our companies do business, create jobs, and serve customers in Texas,” the letter, which was a joint effort with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) reads in part. “We are committed to building...
    South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg Back in September 2020, 55-year-old Joseph Boever was struck and killed by a car being driven by South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg. Boever was walking on the side of Highway 14 around 10:30 PM when Ravnsborg’s car drifted into the shoulder of the highway and hit Boever. Ravnsborg had been driving home from a Republican fundraiser and reportedly called 911 at the time, claiming to the dispatcher that he might have hit a deer. A sheriff’s deputy came out to quickly survey the attorney general’s car before giving him a ride home. It wasn’t until the following morning, when Ravnsborg returned to the site, that he discovered Boever’s body. From there a long and drawn out investigation ended this past year with Ravnsborg pleading guilty to three misdemeanor charges, serving no time in jail, and paying out $5,000 in fines and court costs. At the time, Boever’s family said the results were “not the ending we hoped for.” This was in part because the investigation was opened up to the public by Ravnsborg’s Republican colleague, Gov. Kristi Noem....
    CBS Zach Wurtenberger. The season premiere of “Survivor 42” last night saw two eliminations: first, Jackson Fox, who was forcibly ejected from the game after failing to disclose his medical history in a timely manner; then, 21-year-old superfan Zach Wurtenberger, who simply came down on the wrong side of the numbers in a small tribe of 6 after failing to perform well in the immunity challenge. Zach was representative of a number of viewers on the couch at home: superfans who have seen “Survivor” at every angle on screen, but relish the idea of actually being there for real. As a result, his elimination – the first one voted out – must have been a real blow both to him and viewers rooting for him, at least at first. Luckily, Zach already prepared for such an outcome, arguably the worst possible one, by writing a letter to his future-self after he was accepted but before he went on the show. Read on to find out what he wrote to himself:Zach is Still Super Grateful to Have Been on ‘Survivor’...
    As representatives from the General Assembly’s money committees begin work on a budget compromise, Governor Glenn Youngkin sent a letter to them reiterating his top priorities for the budget. There’s a tension between the House of Delegates and the Senate proposals on how to spend revenue surplus and one-time resources. Both chambers’ proposals advance increased spending, but the House of Delegates prioritizes extensive tax cuts with more moderate new spending while the Senate includes more new spending but moderate cuts. Youngkin’s priorities align more closely with the House bill, and in his Friday letter, he argued that Virginia’s financial position allows both for more spending in key areas and for extensive tax cuts, all while adding resources to Virginia’s rainy day fund. “These priorities include supporting our schools and teachers with the largest education budget in Virginia’s history, providing more training and better equipment for law enforcement, expanded behavioral health programs, salary increases for state employees, law enforcement, and teachers, and the many other strategic programs identified by the General Assembly,” the governor wrote. “Lastly, and very importantly, we are...
