The lawyers included a July 1 letter sent to Saab by Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza while Saab was detained in Cape Verde. It addressed him as the South American country’s “Special Representative to the Islamic Republic of Iran” and noted that Saab had information considered “classified” by Venezuela. “If you are extradited to the United States, you will be put under pressure, whether legitimately or not, to disclose that information,” Arreaza wrote. At the time of his arrest, Saab was en route to Iran to negotiate shipments of fuel and humanitarian supplies to Venezuela, his lawyers previously told Reuters. Iran sent more than 2 million barrels of fuel last year to help resolve gasoline shortages in Venezuela, whose oil industry is under U.S. sanctions.

BENGALURU (Reuters) - At least five mine workers were killed in southern India when their trucks carrying blasting material exploded, officials said on Friday. The workers were transporting gelatin sticks used commonly as explosive material in stone mining quarries, a senior police official at the site of the accident, in Shivamogga district of Karnataka state, said. Karnataka, home to the tech hub of Bengaluru, has vast mineral deposits and stone quarries, but the safety of mine workers has remained a concern. Yedyurappa said five people were confirmed dead and three people including the owner of the quarry had been detained and an investigation was ongoing. “Pained by the loss of lives in Shivamogga ... the state government is providing all possible assistance to the affected,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a Twitter post.

A self-described “dating and relationship strategist” from New Jersey was charged Thursday for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after posting multiple videos to Twitter admitting he was there. The New Jersey native was brought to the FBI’s attention after former classmates from college and high school submitted tips based on his tweets. The tweets expressed criticism of the “mainstream media” for its characterization of the riot, made unfounded claims that the rioters were anti-fascists rather than Donald Trump supporters and described politicians as criminals. We outnumber you and will outlast you.”In a Periscope livestream on Wednesday, Stedman called President Joe Biden’s inauguration a “communist takeover” of the country. Stedman was set to have a virtual appearance with the District Court of New Jersey on Thursday afternoon.

FILE PHOTO: The logo of Amazon is seen at the company logistics centre in Boves, France, August 8, 2018. Amazon Web Services suspended Parler on Jan. 10. It has said Parler violated its contract by ignoring repeated warnings to effectively address steady growth in violent content, including calls to assassinate prominent Democratic politicians, leading business executives and the media. Parler said Amazon had no contractual right to pull the plug, and did so out of “political animus” to benefit Twitter Inc, a larger Amazon client that Parler said did not censor violent content targeting conservatives. Many supporters of former U.S. President Donald Trump favor Parler, which has claimed it had more than 12 million users.

A minor has filed a lawsuit against Twitter, claiming it declined to remove an explicit video. The lawsuit says the video was posted by a predator who extorted the minor. Twitter declined to comment on the specifics of the lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday. After Twitter declined to remove the video, the plaintiff's mother asked an agent of the US Department of Homeland Security for help, the lawsuit says. The agent contacted Twitter and the video was removed from Twitter on or about January 30, 2020, the lawsuit claims.

Jan. 21, 2021What does it mean to go to public school in the United States during the pandemic? The answer looks so different in different parts of the country, it is hard to tell that we are one nation. In some rural and suburban areas, especially in the South, Midwest and Great Plains, almost all students began the 2020-21 academic year attending school in person, and they have continued to do so, except for temporary closures during outbreaks. In many cities, the bulk of students haven’t been in a classroom since March. And in some districts, like New York City, only younger students have the option of going to school in person, with many attending only part-time.

Judge refuses to force Amazon to put Parler back online

A U.S. judge has refused to order Amazon to bring Parler back online, delivering a blow to the upstart social media network. Parler had become a haven for many conservatives and Trump supporters who felt traditional social media companies were censoring their speech. In response, Parler filed a lawsuit against Amazon Web Services in U.S. District Court in Seattle for withdrawing support and demanded that AWS reinstate its account. The judge also rebuffed Parler's claim that Amazon pulled the plug on the site to benefit Twitter and violated antitrust laws. Epik is a company that sells domain names and it also hosts Gab, a social media network that's popular with the far-right.

Oklahoma judge orders 'Tiger King' zoo to turn over big cats

A federal judge in Oklahoma has ordered the new owners of an Oklahoma zoo featured in Netflix’s “Tiger King” documentary to turn over all the lion and tiger cubs in their possession, along with the animals’ mothers, to the federal government. U.S. District Judge John F. Heil III issued the order last week in the case against Jeffrey and Lauren Lowe and the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park based on claimed violations of the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act. Jeffrey Lowe’s attorney, Daniel Card of Oklahoma City, didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The Lowes took over operations of the zoo, which was previously run by Joseph Maldonado-Passage — also known as Joe Exotic — and featured in Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.”Maldonado-Passage is serving a 22-year sentence in a Fort Worth, Texas, federal prison for his conviction on charges that he participated in a murder-for-hire plot and violated federal wildlife laws. Maldonado-Passage has formally requested a pardon from outgoing President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump led the United States for four tumultuous years with a right-wing populist approach and an “America First” message, but left office with his presidency in tatters and the country’s democratic institutions dented after a calamitous last chapter. U.S. President Donald Trump reacts in a car as he drives past supporters in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., January 20, 2021. Critics including senior Democrats and former members of his own administration portrayed Trump as a peril to democracy with autocratic tendencies. Critics accused Trump of pursuing policies built around “white grievance” in a nation with a growing non-white population. Mueller detailed numerous contacts between Trump campaign figures and Russians.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc’s Google has asked a U.S. judge in Texas to transfer an antitrust lawsuit filed by 10 states in December to a court in California, a state that has more relevant witnesses and documents needed by the company, it said. FILE PHOTO: A Google sign is pictured on a Google building in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., October 20, 2020. “As internal Google documents reveal, Google sought to kill competition and has done so through an array of exclusionary tactics, including an unlawful agreement with Facebook, its largest potential competitive threat,” the lawsuit said. Google previously called the Texas lawsuit “meritless.”In total, Google has been sued three times since October by U.S. states and the Justice Department, including the Texas lawsuit. In December, a separate group of 38 U.S. states and territories filed their own antitrust complaint Google.

Trump on Wednesday morning issued a full pardon to Al Pirro Jr., the ex-husband of one of Trump's most slavishly loyal supporters in the media, Jeanine Pirro, the host of Fox News' "Justice with Judge Jeanine." Al Pirro did not immediately respond to a request for comment left at his office. Less than 12 hours before the Al Pirro pardon was revealed, the White House announced Trump had pardoned 73 other people, and commuted the criminal sentences of 70 individuals. Al Pirro had been hit by a paternity lawsuit while serving his prison sentence for the tax case conviction. "This fraud will continue and America will be doomed for the next 20 years," Jeanine Pirro said.

Former President Donald Trump faces numerous legal issues at the federal and state levels that could last for years. Trump could face criminal and civil matters at the federal, state, and local levels. By doing so, the now ex-president opened himself up to federal, state, and local prosecution for election-law violations, several election-law experts told Insider. Whether Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr does anything is another matter. Three Democratic members of Congress, in two separate requests filed in late December, have asked the Department of Justice and Federal Election Commission to investigate whether the company violated election laws.

A Georgia lawyer boasted that he and fellow rioters "kicked in Nancy Pelosi's office door" and the House speaker dodged being "torn into little pieces," according to a criminal complaint. Calhoun said the "mob" searched through Pelosi's "inner sanctum," according to his Facebook post cited in the affidavit. "And get this - the first of us who got upstairs kicked in Nancy Pelosi's office door and pushed down the hall towards her inner sanctum, the mob howling with rage," Calhoun wrote, according to the FBI. "Crazy Nancy probably would have been torn into little pieces but she was nowhere to be seen." Calhoun, who practices criminal and insurance law, was in good standing and has not been targeted for any discipline, according to Georgia Bar Association records.
