FILE PHOTO: An activist holds a portrait of opposition politician Alexei Navalny during a picket in his support in Saint Petersburg, Russia December 22, 2020. The Kremlin denies involvement, says it has seen no evidence that he was poisoned, and that he is free to return to Russia. A Moscow court on Saturday ordered a Navalny ally, Pavel Zelensky, to be held in pre-trial detention on extremism charges which he denies. On the eve of his return, Navalny took to Facebook to thank Germans for what he described as their stereotype-breaking friendly hospitality in the last five months.

White House officials blame Rudy Giuliani for not one, but two impeachments of President Donald Trump, according to a report by The New York Times. The president was impeached over his role in the deadly Capitol riots, which were largely fueled by Trump supporters' unsubstantiated belief the election was "stolen," an idea Giuliani has strongly pushed.

“Of course, it is impossible to explain to Ukrainian society why, when America and Europe are not giving you vaccines, you shouldn’t take vaccines from Russia,” Mr. Zelensky said. He was bracing, he said, for an “information war” on the issue. Still, as the largest democracy in the former Soviet Union, he said, Ukraine remained a natural long-term partner for the United States. “It seems to me the United States relates to Ukraine like the United States relates to democracy,” he said. “No matter who is president, he will always respect democracy and, in the same way, regardless who is president there will always be this relationship with Ukraine.

It is not known what, if any, action Hunter Biden took in response to the email. There’s no indication that his work for the Burisma national gas company is part of the investigation, but the email obtained by NBC News raises fresh questions about Hunter Biden’s tax affairs. A spokesperson for the Biden transition team declined to comment when sent a list of questions, including whether Hunter Biden amended his 2014 returns. “In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part,” Hunter Biden said in the ABC News interview.

Ukrainian authorities have closed a criminal probe into Joe Biden, who was accused of improperly forcing the ouster of the country's prosecutor general in 2016, a police spokesperson said. The investigation was launched in February after the ousted prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, appealed to a court.

National Police of Ukraine spokesperson Iaroslav Trakalo confirmed to NBC News that the case was closed after the news was first reported by the Ukrinform news agency. A Biden spokesperson declined to comment.

As election day draws near, the Lincoln Project is ramping up its attacks on the Trump family — and they're biting back. On Friday, the anti-Trump political action committee (PAC) shared on Twitter a letter from Marc Kasowitz, Trump's go-to lawyer, demanding that it remove "false, malicious, and defamatory ads." The Lincoln Project is comprised largely of conservatives who have disavowed the current Republican administration. The Lincoln Project put up the two billboards on the morning of October 22, according to the New York Times. The next day, the Lincoln Project tweeted a three-page, heavily-footnoted response from Matthew Sanderson of the law firm Caplin & Drysdale.
