  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( ) www.nbcnews.com + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
The AP and The Philadelphia Inquirer petitioned a federal judge to unseal the case. Federal prosecutors did not oppose the request, and the judge agreed, paving the way for Thursday’s release of documents. The contractor detected an underground mass that weighed up to nine tons and had the density of gold, the affidavit said. Archer said that a turtle carving found on a rock near the proposed dig site was “very likely ... a KGC marker for that site." He noted the warrant granted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Lloret gave FBI agents permission to dig from 6 a.m to 10 p.m.

Republicans are itching to conduct investigations of Hunter Biden if they win the majority in 2022. GOP inquiries would force the White House to play whack-a-mole with Hunter Biden accusations. Republicans are gearing up for a hot pursuit of Hunter Biden should they win a majority in Congress in the 2022 midterms. Republicans say they want to know more about Hunter Biden's ties to China and the Ukraine gas company Burisma. Johnson has this year sent at least four letters to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies demanding answers on different Hunter Biden allegations, including on possible ties to "foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government"; unethical links to a Biden administration DOJ appointee; and an incident allegedly involving Hunter Biden and a firearm.

Rudy Giuliani appeared on Newsmax Thursday to discuss the suspension of his New York legal license. He was it came because he was so effective at arguing for Trump's bogus election-fraud claims. Rudy Giuliani has claimed that the suspension of his license to practise law in New York was part of a plot to silence him because he was so effective at arguing former President Donald Trump's election-fraud claims. Giuliani appeared on the right-wing Newsmax network hours after an appelate court in New York suspended his law license on Thursday. In explaining the decision to suspend Giuliani's license, the New York court on Thursday cited his promotion of Trump's election-fraud conspiracy theories.

A refresher: Hunter Biden came under intense scrutiny during the 2020 campaign over everything from his business dealings to his struggles with substance abuse. ": A bipartisan group of 21 senators and President Joe Biden reached a major breakthrough in negotiations for an infrastructure bill. "There ain't going to be an infrastructure bill unless we have the reconciliation bill passed by the United States Senate," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday. Biden, too, said of the infrastructure bill: "If this is the only thing that comes to me, I'm not signing it." "Big crowds in the Great State of Ohio this weekend for the Trump rally," Trump wrote in a Wednesday night statement about his planned Saturday rally outside Cleveland.

Florida congressman Matt Gaetz tweeted that the FBI should be defunded, then deleted it after one minute. A Gaetz spokesperson told Vice that the congressman had made and deleted a "jocular tweet." A Gaetz spokesman told Vice that Gaetz "felt it appropriate to remove a jocular tweet taken from a speech some time ago." While this ongoing FBI investigation around Gaetz continues, he has launched several salvos at the Bureau. On Newsmax, Gaetz alleged that the FBI had a role in "organizing and participating" in the January 6 Capitol riot.

REUTERS/Shannon StapletonWASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - An Illinois man on Thursday became the first person charged for attacking journalists during the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. Attorney General Merrick Garland touted the arrest in a statement on Thursday, noting that the department has now arrested 500 people who took part in the violence, including 100 who are facing charges for attacking police, he noted. The violence left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer. "The manner of attack on the cameraman was very similar to the attack" on the U.S. Capitol Police officer, the complaint said.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The Treasury Department will also share guidelines on how funds in the American Rescue Plan can be used to expand summer camp programs, mental health services, food assistance, job placement programs and other social services that help prevent crime. "The president is giving these cities unprecedented resources through the American Rescue Plan to invest in the tools they think make sense in their communities,” the official said. Biden's announcement comes as crime around the country has risen sharply and as Republicans have been quick to paint the president as soft on the issue. The president and the attorney general will also speak on the administration's gun crime prevention strategy at 3:30 p.m.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is considering whether to form a House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 riot after Republicans blocked legislation to create a bipartisan panel. Pelosi informed the House Democratic Steering and Policy committee of her thinking Tuesday evening, stressing the importance study the attack, which left several dead and dozens injured. There was initial confusion as to whether Pelosi was moving to form the committee or mulling the possibility. Senate Republicans blocked House-passed legislation in May that would have established a bipartisan commission to investigate the attack. Pelosi, however, told her conference earlier this month that forming a select committee was one of the options on the table after Republicans blocked the legislation.

Biden will deliver remarks Wednesday after he hosts a meeting at the White House with state and local officials, members of law enforcement and experts. Homicides spiked by 30% in 2020 over the previous year, according to FBI data provided by the White House, and the trend shows no signs of abating. Months of protests last summer and fall against police killings of Black people may have also diverted police resources away from traditional policing, while at the same time eroding public confidence in law enforcement. Many of the factors believed to have contributed to the rise in violent crime are difficult to quantify. The latest steps are in addition to a package of executive actions to confront gun violence that Biden announced in April.

The FBI processed a record 39.7 million firearm background checks in 2020, and checks are trending higher this year. Federal background checks on firearm purchases blocked a record 300,000 sales in 2020, new data from the advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety shows. The number of rejections are part of a record year for gun sales in 2020, where the FBI said it processed 39.7 million background checks — 10 million more than the previous high. In addition to sales of firearms themselves, background checks are required for things such as concealed-carry permits and suppressors, and therefore not an exact reflection of gun sales. Sales in 2021 are already on track for another record year, with 4.7 million background checks in March alone.

A former fraud and public corruption prosecutor is in line to become the US attorney overseeing Capitol riot cases. If confirmed, Biden's pick would take charge of the largest federal prosecutor's office in the country. The office was rocked last year when Justice Department leaders intervened in cases to aid Trump allies. The Justice Department and Biden White House did not respond to requests for comment. Graves served for nearly a decade as a career prosecutor in the US attorney's office in the District of Columbia.

FBI Director Christopher Wray testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the January 6th insurrection, in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, March 2, 2021. FBI Director Chris Wray on Wednesday pleaded with public companies and other hacking victims to avoid paying ransom, saying he fears it will only embolden cyber criminals to ramp up future attacks. The FBI was able to recover those funds because it had a private key that it was able to use to unlock a bitcoin wallet holding most of the money. It was unclear how the FBI managed to access the key. Bitcoin seizures by the federal government are relatively uncommon, but authorities have been stepping up their expertise in tracking the flow of digital money.

Justice Department Aims to Curb Gun Trafficking Into Large U.S. Cities

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department is planning to target gun trafficking into five U.S. cities, officials said, as President Biden prepares to unroll a broader crime-fighting strategy this week in the face of criticism from Republicans about rising violence. At the center of that effort, the Justice Department will form what it calls strike forces that aim to shut down major firearms-trafficking corridors, including by sharing more information between law-enforcement officials in cities where guns originate and those who recover them on the streets after crimes, officials said. Authorities are grappling with rising gun violence in large cities across the U.S. Law-enforcement officials and criminologists have said pandemic stress and a police pullback amid protests over racial justice are likely contributors to the increase. “It is staggering, it is sobering,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said Tuesday. “DOJ is committed to doing all we can to reverse what are profoundly troubling trends and a really bad trajectory that we’re on.”

John Demers, the DOJ's top national security official, considered resigning amid Trump's pressure to overturn the election. He also told The Wall Street Journal he was "relieved" and "pleased" that the acting AG resisted Trump's pressure to overturn the election results. John Demers, the Justice Department official who oversees the national security division, seriously considered resigning in January when then-President Donald Trump ramped up pressure on the department to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Rosen forwarded Meadows' email to then-acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue, to which Donoghue replied, "Pure insanity." In another January 1 email, Meadows asked Rosen to have the acting assistant attorney general, Jeff Clark, to investigate "signature match anomalies" in Fulton County, Georgia.

As of Tuesday evening, those who pulled up the website for the Tehran-based Press TV encountered an image informing them that the domain had been "seized by the United States government." However, an unnamed US national security official, speaking to CNN, said dozens of Iranian websites were indeed seized as part of an effort to combat disinformation.

A secret unit within a secret world, E Squadron works for the British intelligence services in high-risk operations overseas. Since then, British special-operations units have led the way, establishing doctrine and tactics, techniques, and procedures that are now in common use across the world, including in the US. Not only was MI6 deeply involved, British special-operations units, including E Squadron operators, saw limited action in the country while conducting special reconnaissance and close protection.

The FBI document doesn't say whether the FBI's review of social media posts was conducted before or after Jan. 6. Asked whether the FBI monitors social media as part of its efforts to combat violent extremism, Wray spoke in general terms. "We have very specific policies that have been at the [Justice] Department for a long time that govern our ability to use social media," he said. But what we can't do…without proper predication and an authorized purpose, [is] just monitor 'just in case' on social media." It's an open question what relevant information about a possible attack on the Capitol the FBI possessed before Jan. 6.
