Fox Settled a Lawsuit Over Its Lies. But It Insisted on One Unusual Condition.

Fox’s decision to settle with the Rich family came just before its marquee hosts, Lou Dobbs and Sean Hannity, were set to be questioned under oath in the case, a potentially embarrassing moment. And Fox paid so much that the network didn’t have to apologize for the May 2017 story on FoxNews.com. But there was one curious provision that Fox insisted on: The settlement had to be kept secret for a month — until after the Nov. 3 election. Why did Fox care about keeping the Rich settlement secret for the final month of the Trump re-election campaign? Did network executives fear backlash from their increasingly radicalized audience, which has been gravitating to other conservative outlets?

Mark Leffingwell of Seattle, who faces charges for assaulting a police officer, is an Iraq war veteran who suffers from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, his lawyer told a judge. Lonnie Coffman, a 70-year-old Alabama man arrested for having explosives in his truck, takes multiple drugs for mental illness, his lawyer told the judge in a hearing this week. Inside his truck, they found an AR-15-style rifle, a shotgun, a crossbow, several machetes, smoke grenades and 11 Molotov cocktails. Two other men, Eric Munchel and Larry Brock, both were photographed inside the Capitol carrying zip ties, commonly used as a handcuff. Michael Curzio, arrested at the front of a crowd inside the Capitol, had recently served a prison sentence in Florida for attempted murder.

WASHINGTON — President-Elect Joe Biden has tapped Jaime Harrison to lead the Democratic National Committee, which will meet next week to elect a new chairman, a senior Democrat close to the DNC confirmed to NBC News. Harrison, 44, the former South Carolina Democratic Party chairman, ran for the top national job in 2017 and lost to Tom Perez, who is now leaving the chairman job. Harrison raised over $130 million in his 2020 Senate bid and attracted national attention from liberals looking to oust Graham, but fell about 10 percentage points short. “We were in a ditch,” Perez told NBC recently of the state of the party when he took over. He’s very very attuned to the job of winning up and the down ballot, and not just federal races,” Perez said.

(Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden has picked former South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison to head the Democratic National Committee, Biden’s office said in a statement on Thursday. Harrison was a successful fundraiser as a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina, amassing a stunning $109 million war chest for his 2020 campaign before ultimately losing his bid to unseat Republican Senator Lindsey Graham. The current DNC chairman, Tom Perez, has said he would not seek another term. Harrison, an associate chairman for the DNC, formerly worked for U.S. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina, whose early backing of Biden helped him secure the party’s presidential nomination last year. Biden ultimately selected another senator, Kamala Harris, to join him on the ticket.

A former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Mr. Harrison became a national political star last year as he shattered fund-raising records in his race against Senator Lindsey Graham, who was up for re-election. While Mr. Harrison lost in November, drawing 44 percent of the vote to Mr. Graham’s 55 percent, he developed a broad bench of support across the party. He is also well-known to staff and members of the D.N.C., a result of his work heading the South Carolina state party and a failed bid to become chairman of the committee in 2017. Mr. Harrison has been championed by Representative Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, an influential Biden ally who helped the president-elect win the primary race in Mr. Clyburn’s home state. Former President Barack Obama chose to try to establish his own political operation outside of the committee, a decision that many D.N.C.

Jamie Harrison of South Carolina will be next to lead the Democratic National Committee, according to the New York Times. Harrison's run against Sen. Lindsey Graham in November broke fundraising records and earned him a reputation as a fundraising juggernaut. Jamie Harrison, the former South Carolina Senate candidate who shattered fundraising records, will be the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee, according to the New York Times. Harrison grew up in Orangeburg, S.C., going on to graduate from Yale University and the Georgetown University Law Center. After a lobbying stint, Harrison became the first Black chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party.

Widen After Impeachment Vote Some House Republicans have called on Representative Liz Cheney to resign from her leadership post after she voted to impeach President Trump. Representative Liz Cheney had issued a scathing statement the day before the impeachment vote repudiating President Trump. Mr. Biden will detail his proposal, which he and his economic team have been honing for weeks, in an evening speech in Delaware. “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy,” Mr. Biden said Wednesday. Far more of a party institutionalist, Mr. Biden has promised to rebuild state parties and deepen investments in the committee.

The officials in the briefing also provided updates about the newly constructed perimeter around the Capitol and the increasing number of National Guard troops securing it. There were also questions about increased threats that members may face as a result of the upcoming impeachment vote on Wednesday. Last week, Hong Kong police arrested over 50 pro-democracy figures for allegedly violating a stringent new national security law in a sweeping crackdown on opposition. In addition to the violence at the Capitol, two pipe bombs were left at the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee headquarters, which is nearby.

Feds consider sedition and conspiracy charges in probe of pro-Trump Capitol riot

Federal authorities said Tuesday they expect to soon charge hundreds of people in connection with the Capitol riot. Officials added that they have directed a task force to gather evidence for prosecutions for sedition and conspiracy. "We are looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy," said Michael Sherwin, acting United States attorney for the District of Columbia. A number of those cases have involved relatively minor charges, but Sherwin said he expected charges to be upgraded for some people. "We're going to focus on the most significant charges," Sherwin said.

One person was fatally shot during the riot, and a Capitol policeman has now died of injuries he sustained while defending the Capitol. Note whom Secretary Miller and Chairman Milley did NOT speak to: President Trump. The security of the nation’s capital is complicated due to overlapping jurisdictions between local government and federal agencies. Federal agencies retain the primary responsibility for securing the Capitol. He urged the crowd to assault the Capitol, and did very little to stop the violence once the riot started.

A loophole in the US vaccine rollout has made it possible for young and healthy people to get shots without having to skip the line. People wait in line for their chance at a coronavirus shot in case any might be left over at this DC pharmacy. One said she'd already received 100 calls just that morning asking about the leftover shots. The National Association of Chain Drug Stores, however, said the way things are across the country now, with one-off instances of people getting leftover shots, leaves too many people with "false hopes." Each vial has enough vaccine for 10 people, and so that's why some days there are shots leftover.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.
