"It could have been thunder but it didn't really sound like thunder, and we felt the building shake," Osin-Cohen told NBC's "TODAY" show. She said she got up and looked out the window toward the street and saw "a plume of smoke coming up." As they made their way back to their apartment, Osin-Cohen said they encountered an elderly couple trying to find a way out. She and her husband took the couple with them and waved down firefighters from the balcony of their apartment. Another witness, Fiorella Terenzi, said that she heard the collapse from her apartment one building away.

Britney Spears' plea to end her conservatorship during a rare testimony Wednesday could help lift some of the restrictions she is placed under — but legal experts say it will be an uphill battle to end the court arrangement entirely. Scrutiny of her case has been heightened in the wake of "Framing Britney Spears," a documentary about her conservatorship released in February, helping to fuel the #FreeBritney movement on social media. Before the judge makes a decision, legal experts said Spears must file a formal petition to end the conservatorship, which has not yet been submitted to the court. “It’s very unusual to end a conservatorship precisely because people in conservatorships don’t get better,” legal analyst Lisa Green told the “TODAY” show Thursday. During her testimony, Spears added that she wanted "to be heard" and that the "laws need to change."

But the Democrats whose districts were hit hardest by the SALT cap are offering a new argument. "The puzzle doesn’t get built if we don’t address the SALT deduction," he said. 'A SALT march, like Gandhi did'Some liberal Democrats are also leery of expanding the SALT deduction. "The SALT deduction cap threatens our ability to keep making those investments," she said. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said he represents middle class people "severely affected" by the SALT cap, who want relief.

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.

Unfortunately for Trump, this is likely to be a short-lived legal adventure; the city can very probably get this case dismissed before it really even gets started. The Parks Department and the city were free to make a terrible business decision. The essence of an at-will contract is that it’s terminable even for lousy, ill-advised reasons.

WASHINGTON — The Trump Organization is suing New York City over its decision earlier this year to cancel the company's contract to operate an 18-hole golf course in the Bronx borough with views of the Manhattan skyline. The lawsuit said that after the riot, de Blasio “denounced President Trump in the most inflammatory terms” and “characterized the Trump Organization as 'an organization led by a criminal.'" The Democratic mayor said that the city had a right to sever a contract with any company that is engaged in criminal activity. "Inciting an insurrection against the United States government clearly constitutes criminal activity," he said at the time on MSNBC. The filing defended the company's right to keep running the golf course by listing “accolades and top rankings from major publications,” including statements from several professional golfers, such as Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.

“But there’s something else we know: that New York City said ‘Our first choice is Eric Adams’,” he said. Tuesday’s totals were enough to force a concession from former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who was in a distant fourth place. Voters also were choosing among eight Democratic candidates seeking to replace retiring Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. The election’s outcome could help show where Democratic voters stand on the topic ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The leading moderate candidates - Adams, Garcia and Yang - all called for increased police resources.

— Experts say a highly contagious strain of Covid-19 is spreading rapidly through Missouri, particularly in smaller, rural communities where vaccination rates are sluggish. Researchers first detected the delta variant on May 10, in wastewater from Branson. Linn County’s health administrator, Krista Neblock, told NBC News the vaccination rate and the presence of the delta variant are disconcerting. Neblock said the delta variant appears to be spreading much faster than previous variants. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week that the variant is a "variant of concern."

Mayor, Candidates Look to Lock In Votes A crowded field of Democratic contenders is crisscrossing the city in a race that is still very much up for grabs. Joshua Bryson, 55, said that he had not yet decided who to vote for but that he was considering Mr. Yang. In 2013, the last time there was an open election for mayor, New York City saw no candidate-specific super PACs. At least 14 individuals identified as billionaires by Forbes magazine have donated to mayoral-related super PACs. And three of the top six spenders on television, digital and radio advertising in the mayor’s race are super PACs.

The president's talks this week could mark a final push to find a compromise before Democrats try to pass a sprawling infrastructure plan on their own. Biden initially called to hike the corporate tax rate to 28% to pay for his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan. Disagreements over how broad the proposal should be and how to pay for it threaten to trip up the bipartisan plan in the Senate. At least one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, has insisted on passing an infrastructure bill with Republican votes. It is unclear if he would back a separate reconciliation bill if Congress passes an initial infrastructure plan with bipartisan support.

Those three were on the run from Hong Kong authorities at the time of their escape, with two of them charged and facing possible multiyear prison sentences. Ray, 25, a warehouse clerk, participated in dayslong standoffs between protesters and police at two Hong Kong universities in November of that year. They declined to disclose who organized the trip, citing fear of reprisals by Hong Kong authorities. She said the government would continue to provide humanitarian assistance to Hong Kong people in accordance with the law. They held up a black flag calling for Hong Kong’s freedom, lighted commemorative candles and snapped photos of themselves with others from Hong Kong.

New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley, second from right, talks to supporters after a news conference on Tuesday, in Brooklyn, New York. She is trying to become New York City’s first Black female mayor and working to assemble a coalition of Black voters and progressives. Ms. Wiley speaks often about her biography as the daughter of a civil rights activist and how she attended a segregated public school as a child. Hawk Newsome, a co-founder of the group, said he was endorsing Ms. Wiley because she had made divesting from the police a consistent message in her campaign. Ms. Wiley wants to cut $1 billion a year from the police department’s $6 annual budget and to reduce the number of officers.

Senate Budget Committee Chair Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Thursday that the committee is considering a $6 trillion spending figure. There's no realistic chance that Democrats will finish the bill before the monthlong August recess. "We're just starting to meet now with committee chairs and the caucuses to get their input and putting it together," House Budget Committee Chair John Yarmuth, D-Ky., said in an interview. A group of five House Democrats is demanding debt stabilization measures, which the left rejects. In the meantime, Biden will have to decide whether to embrace or reject the bipartisan $579 billion infrastructure framework backed by 11 Republicans, who haven't released key details.

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers in Congress wrestled with what the new era of federal health care policy would look like after the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the latest existential challenge to Obamacare. "And now, we’re going to try to make it bigger and better — establish, once and for all, affordable health care as a basic right of every American citizen." "We will continue to work to lower health care costs by lowering the cost of prescription drugs," Pelosi told reporters. For now, there's no consensus among Republicans on what an alternative health care system should look like. Romney said that while he couldn't predict future lawsuits, any major health care changes in the near term would likely have to come from Congress.

WASHINGTON — A Washington, D.C., police officer injured during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack said that he was snubbed by a Republican congressman who previously compared the riot to a “normal tourist visit." Fanone said he saw Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., in the elevator and extended his hand to the congressman — only to be rebuffed. “As the elevator doors opened, he ran as quickly as he could, like a coward,” Fanone told CNN about the interaction. Fanone said he was with Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, who also defended the Capitol on Jan. 6, when the encounter with Clyde occurred. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., a vocal critic of many of his GOP colleagues who support former President Donald Trump, tweeted Wednesday, “I just called Officer Fanone and confirmed this story.

(Reuters) - The eight leading candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for New York City mayor exchanged jabs on Wednesday over public safety, housing and homelessness at the final televised debate before Tuesday’s primary election. Adams piled on, calling Yang’s plan “Monopoly money.”Much of the debate’s early clashes focused on public safety, which has been the No. 1 issue during the campaign thanks to a spike in violent crime around the city. Adams, Yang and former sanitation chief Kathryn Garcia, considered more moderate candidates, have proposed beefing up the police department in response. Adams, Wiley, Garcia and Yang are widely seen as the top four candidates, based on public polling.

MSNBC employees are forming a union.

Employees at MSNBC, the 24-hour cable news channel with a slate of prominent liberal anchors, informed the network’s management on Thursday that they planned to form a union representing about 315 workers including producers, bookers, writers, and fact checkers. The announcement is the latest example of a workers’ rights movement that has swept major media organizations, as print, digital and broadcast journalists seek to unionize amid a precarious outlook for their industry. Recently, employees at The Atlantic, The Daily News of New York and Insider, as well as tech workers at The New York Times have announced their intent to unionize. The MSNBC bargaining unit would be represented by the Writers Guild of America, East, which said that a clear majority of the network’s employees had signed a letter seeking voluntary recognition of a union. The Writers Guild represents many news and entertainment outlets, including ABC News and CBS News, whose involvement dates to the guild’s beginnings in 1954.

LONDON — Russian President Vladimir Putin knows Wednesday's summit with U.S. President Joe Biden will not be a friendly event, with Washington-Moscow relations at their lowest ebb since the Cold War. But Putin has likely achieved his main aim the minute he and Biden shake hands, some experts say. Nevertheless, Putin likely gave the interview with NBC News "to butter Joe Biden up ahead of these tough negotiations," according to Nixey at Chatham House. People walk under Russian and American flags on a bridge in Geneva prior to a meeting between U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. "I think that is because reporters would have asked Biden, in front of Putin, whether he still thinks Putin is still a killer, as he did three months ago," Nixey said.

And, after The New York Times dared to defend its editorial board member, former President Donald Trump’s acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell, tweeted: “Dear God....the @nytimes justifies mocking the American flag because Donald Trump likes the American flag. It’s easy for some to dismiss such conflation of the American flag with racism as overwrought. When an unarmed young Jewish man rushed onstage, he was viciously beaten by attendees before police took him away. The American flag as a weapon, wielded against an American. Such hijacking of the American flag by people who rightly evoke our disgust should make clear that it’s a mistake to treat the flag as a sacrosanct object.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The top two Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Sunday vowed to probe the “rogue” actions of the Justice Department during former President Donald Trump’s term, including its move to seize the communications records of Democratic lawmakers. The Justice Department under former attorneys general William Barr and Jeff Sessions was regularly accused of putting Trump’s personal and political interests ahead of the law. “The Justice Department has been rogue under President Trump, understand that, in so many respects. The New York Times on Thursday reported that the Trump-era Justice Department subpoenaed Apple Inc for data on Schiff and Swalwell. Senator Susan Collins, one of that chamber’s most moderate Republicans, said on Sunday that she supported the Justice Department’s internal probe.
