    An Oregon man gunning for a seat at the political table has joined the ranks of now notorious hate crime hoaxers Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace. A Hispanic candidate for an Oregon county commission seat has admitted he faked a racist letter to himself, though he now says he never meant to mislead anyone. Jonathan Lopez, who ran an unsuccessful primary campaign for a seat on the Umatilla County commission in May, had initially claimed that a racially-tinged letter had been left in his mailbox. But in an email to the press on Monday, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said...

    Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning will be released from jail after being held for 10 months because testimony she refused to give to a secret grand jury is no longer needed, a federal judge said on Thursday. Manning's release comes because "the business of (the grand jury) had concluded," Judge Anthony Trenga of the federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, wrote on Thursday. "The Court finds that Ms. Manning's appearance before the Grand Jury is no longer needed, in light of which her detention no longer serves any coercive purpose." Manning was fined $256,000 in fines for refusing to testify,...

    Despite flashing elite arm strength and fluidity in the pocket during his public workout last week, Colin Kaepernick has reportedly received "zero" interest from NFL teams. Zero. Absolutely zero. The workout last week did absolutely nothing to enhance the chances that Colin Kaepernick is going to wind up with another team," ESPN's Adam Schefter said Sunday on SportsCenter. "There hasnt been a team that has requested a workout. There hasnt been a team that has requested a visit. There hasnt been a team that has expressed interest in signing him. So, despite the fact that one week ago we saw...

Adam Schiff testify under oath about his relations to the anti-Trump whistleblower who is responsible for the beginning of the impeachment inquiry. The whistleblower should answer questions under oath. But more importantly, Adam Schiff needs to answer questions under oath, Stefanik said during an interview with Fox & Friends. I was the first member of Congress to ask when did Adam Schiff have access to the whistleblower. We know now that that was before the whistleblower submitted his complaint to the inspector general, she added. So there are a lot...
