And yet constitutional matters aside, the Supreme Court in 1964 defined a pretty good standard if journalists cared to adopt it. The now-independent journalist Andrew Sullivandetails the media’s insistence on characterizing, without evidence, the Atlanta shooter as racially motivated. The now-independent journalist Glenn Greenwalddismantles a Vox journalist’s video clip suggesting a sheriff’s deputy flippantly said the shooter “had a bad day.” (The full video shows he was faithfully conveying what the shooter himself had stated.) The now-independent journalist Bari Weiss examines the media’s concealment of the fact that many “racist” assaults on Asian-Americans are carried out by blacks. Last year, fewer than 12,000 refugees were admitted, the smallest number in the history of the U.S. refugee program.”

"Parents, don't let your kids do... um... parmesan," Trump wrote on his Instagram story.

And so, after reading his memoir, “Beautiful Things” I have a soft spot for Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden memoir, Beautiful Things. While there’s no right way to get sober, “Beautiful Things” ends in what feels like a cliffhanger. While there’s no right way to get sober, “Beautiful Things” ends in what feels like a cliffhanger.

Hunter Biden said he didn't realize that his job with Burisma would attract so much attention. Joe Biden's son told the BBC he didn't think at the time of "the perception that I would create." Republicans had seized on that role to attack Joe Biden and the Democrats. Hunter Biden says he didn't realize that his position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma would become a political liability for his dad. The phone call took place when Joe Biden was a frontrunner to secure the Democratic presidential nomination and run against him in the 2020 election.

Matt Gaetz published an op-ed defending himself amid allegations that he had sex with a minor and broke sex trafficking laws. In Monday's piece titled, "The swamp is out to drown me with false charges, but I'm not giving up," Gaetz wrote, "I have never, ever paid for sex. The Justice Department launched its investigation into him late last summer, more than three years after he took office. "You'll see more 'drip, drip, drip' of leaks into the media from the corrupt Justice Department and others," Gaetz wrote. "I'm going to fight like hell for my constituents and the country I deeply love," Gaetz wrote.

New York (CNN Business) When Joe Biden was vice president, and was mourning the death of his older son Beau, he was also trying to keep his younger son Hunter alive. That's one of the many takeaways from Hunter's book "Beautiful Things," which comes out on Tuesday. For example, Hunter's big paychecks for sitting on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma? He reveals that "Burisma turned into a major enabler" of his "steepest skid into addiction" by providing cash for all the crack cocaine. So far most of the book reviews have been quite positive.

Matt Klapper, chief of staffMatt Klapper previously worked as a longtime aide to Sen. Cory Booker. Bill Clark/CQ Roll CallA longtime aide to Sen. Cory Booker, Klapper joined the Biden transition team and was assigned to be the so-called "navigator" for the attorney general nominee through the Senate confirmation process, based in part on his experience with the Judiciary Committee. Garland faced questions there about how he'd restore the Justice Department's independence, address domestic terrorism, and handle politically sensitive investigations including a probe into the financial dealings of the president's son, Hunter Biden. As an advisor to Booker and while attending Yale Law School, Klapper doubled as a firefighter in New Jersey. Last year, he moonlighted as a volunteer EMS worker after the New Jersey governor issued a call for retired or inactive health care professionals to aid in the pandemic response.

A recently released intelligence report has tied US media outlets to Russian efforts to influence the 2020 presidential election in the hope of preventing President Joe Biden from winning. A March 10 intelligence community assessment from the National Intelligence Council, declassified Monday, draws together a range of previously alleged Russian influence operations in one document. The report named two operators: Ukraine legislator Andriy Derkach, who has ties to Russian intelligence; and Russian influence agent Konstantin Kilimnich. As part of the 2020 Russian media influence efforts, Derkach and Kilimnich also "helped produce a documentary that aired on a US television network in late January 2020," the intelligence report said, once again not naming any outlet. Unleashing the trollsThe "laundered" narratives in the report were then "heavily amplified" by "Russian state media, trolls, and online proxies, including those directed by Russian intelligence," the report said.

Derkach, who has ties to Russian intelligence, is known to have met with Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, who for months promoted discredited allegations against Biden, now president, and his son Hunter Biden. Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, authorized intelligence assets to promote misinformation during the 2020 election cycle about Joe Biden through U.S. media and people close to then-President Donald Trump to try to boost Trump's reelection chances, a U.S. intelligence report said. The intelligence report points directly at Putin, saying that the Russian leader and "other senior Russian officials were aware of and probably directed Russia's influence operations against the 2020 Presidential election." House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Tuesday, "The Intelligence Community Assessment released today underscores what we all knew already – that Russia interfered to support former President Trump, hurt President Biden, and undermine confidence in our electoral process." "Individuals close to the former president were targeted by agents of Russian intelligence including Andriy Derkach and Konstantin Kilimnik, who laundered misinformation into our political system, with the intent of denigrating now-President Biden and damaging his candidacy."

The Senate has confirmed Attorney General Merrick Garland with bipartisan support. In the 2010-11 Supreme Court term, she clerked for Chief Justice John Roberts, an appointee of President George W. Bush. Garland's clerks have landed in prominent roles elsewhere in the Justice Department and broader Biden administration. The longtime Justice Department official Monty Wilkinson served as acting attorney general while Garland awaited confirmation. It's been updated to reflect Garland's Senate confirmation on March 10.

Freshman GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. Just a day after the inauguration of the country's 46th president, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced she would be introducing articles of impeachment against Joe Biden. In a statement released on Thursday, Greene, who represents Georgia's 14th Congressional District, said: "President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency. His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing." Greene has been in Congress for less than a month but has already been at the center of several controversies.

President Joe Biden will keep Christopher Wray on as FBI director, a White House official told NBC News on Thursday. White House press secretary Jen Psaki prompted some raised eyebrows in law enforcement and intelligence circles on Wednesday when she declined to say in a news briefing whether Biden had confidence in Wray. The FBI is leading an investigation intothe attack. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said last week that he will look at the kind of threat information available beforehand and how widely it was shared with U.S. Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies. Wray, who has more than six years left in his 10-year term, had no indication that Biden or his team was dissatisfied with him, a senior FBI official said Wednesday night, adding that “the sentiments shared have all been positive.”Some influential voices have been critical of the FBI's response to the riot, however.

Vance has not charged anyone with criminal wrongdoing and Trump has said the investigation is politically motivated. Would a pardon for Giuliani have helped Trump? But the Constitution does not require this, and Trump could secretly issue preemptive pardons to family members and associates, or even himself, said Alonso. A secret pardon might only become public if the recipient were eventually charged with a federal crime and invoked the pardon as a defense.

Sean Hannity, a host who like Carlson doubled as a friend and advisor to Trump, announced that he would be renewing his investigation into Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son.

President Joe Biden will keep FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position, a White House official told NBC News. Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, declined to say whether Wray would hold onto his role during her first press conference on Wednesday. The Justice Department, which contains the FBI, is also probing the financial affairs of Biden's son, Hunter Biden. Prior to Comey, only one FBI director had been fired in the bureau's history. Former President Bill Clinton fired William Sessions in 1993 after a Justice Department report raised ethics questions.

Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Monday imposed sanctions on several Ukrainian individuals and entities, accusing them of U.S. election interference and associating with a pro-Russian Ukrainian lawmaker linked to efforts by President Donald Trump’s allies to dig up dirt on President-elect Joe Biden and his son. The U.S. Treasury Department accused the seven individuals and four entities of involvement in a Russia-linked foreign influence network associated with Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach. The pro-Russian lawmaker was hit with sanctions by the U.S. government in September over accusations he tried to interfere in the 2020 U.S. election won by Biden. “The United States will continue to aggressively defend the integrity of our election systems and processes,” Mnuchin added. “To me it is a good sign of the checks and balances system which still works in the U.S. government.”The Treasury Department also imposed sanctions on Ukrainian parliamentarian Oleksandr Dubinsky and former Ukrainian official Oleksandr Onyshchenko.

Pirro said companies like Apple and Google taking Parler off of their app stores in addition to Amazon suspending its use of their servers amounted to dangerous censorship. In the buildup to the deadly attempted coup last week, pro-Trump insurrectionists openly planned storming the Capitol on Parler.

REUTERS/Jim Bourg/File PhotoThe following is a primer on what a second impeachment proceeding of Trump would look like. No president has ever been impeached twice, but legal experts said it is clearly constitutional for Congress to do so. A misconception about impeachment is that it refers to the removal of a president from office. Only a simple majority of the Senate is needed to disqualify Trump from holding future office, however. This scenario becomes more likely if Trump’s impeachment trial is still pending on Jan. 20, when his presidency ends, Campos said.
