    The now-former head of the Biden administration’s abortive disinformation board said in an interview Wednesday that she received death threats almost every day during her three weeks on the job. Nina Jankowicz made the claim to MSNBC “All In” host Chris Hayes hours after she announced her resignation following the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to “pause” the Disinformation Governance Board. “I have maybe had one or two days I didn’t report a violent threat,” she said. “Something like, ‘We’re coming for you and your family’, ‘You and your family should be sent to Russia to be killed’, [they] encouraged...

    India’s Ministry of External Affairs blasted far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar’s visit to Pakistan this week, calling her trip to the disputed region of Kashmir “condemnable.” “We have noted that she has visited a part of Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir that is currently illegally occupied by Pakistan,” ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi said of the Minnesota Democrat during a Wednesday press conference. “Let me just say that if such a politician wishes to practice her narrow-minded politics at home … that may be her business.” “But violating our territorial integrity and sovereignty in its pursuit makes it ours,” he...

    A former girlfriend of Rep. Matt Gaetz was granted immunity before she testified last week in front of a federal grand jury hearing evidence in the sex-trafficking probe of the right-wing lawmaker, according to a new report. Two sources familiar with the investigation told CBS News that the unidentified ex of Gaetz (R-Fla.) is seen as a potential key witness in the case, with one source alleging that she has information related to both trafficking and obstruction of justice claims against the congressman.

    Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) officially resigned from Congress Monday, weeks after he announced his intention to leave in order to head up former President Donald Trump’s new social media company. During a pro forma House session, Nunes’s resignation letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was read aloud from the chamber floor by a clerk. “I write to inform you that I have notified California Governor Gavin Newsom of my resignation from the US House of Representatives, effective today at 11:59 p.m.,” Nunes’ letter read.

    A former top speechwriter for President George W. Bush slammed Donald Trump Jr. this past weekend over a recent speech in which the former first son lamented that conservatives had “ceded ground in every major institution in our country.” In an op-ed published by The Atlantic Sunday, Peter Wehner took issue with Trump Jr.’s Dec. 19 remarks at the America Fest Conference hosted by Turning Point USA. “If we get together, they cannot cancel us all. Okay? They won’t. And this will be contrary to a lot of our beliefs because — I’d love not to have to participate in...

    Former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking to invalidate subpoenas issued by the House select committee examining the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after the panel’s chair informed Meadows’ attorney it would move forward with contempt proceedings. The Meadows complaint, first reported by Politico, names Pelosi and the committee’s nine members as defendants, along with the committee itself. The suit describes the subpoenas for documents and testimony issued to Meadows in September as “overly broad and unduly burdensome”. “The Select Committee acts absent any valid legislative power and threatens to violate longstanding principles of...

    Donald Trump took a swipe at President Biden’s handling of Vladimir Putin amid the Russian president’s buildup of troops at the Ukraine border, saying Putin “is not worried” by his predecessor after the chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan. “Vladimir Putin looks at our pathetic surrender in Afghanistan, leaving behind dead Soldiers, American citizens, and $85 billion worth of Military equipment. He then looks at Biden. He is not worried!” Trump said in a statement through his Save America PAC just hours after Biden finished his video call with the Russian president.

    Sen. Bob Dole’s casket will lie in state in the US Capitol on Thursday as congressional leaders honor the former Republican presidential candidate and World War II veteran who served in Congress for 36 years. Dole will then have a state funeral on Friday at the Washington National Cathedral, a senior congressional source told The Post on Monday. Dole passed away Sunday at the age of 98. On Saturday, his body will be transported to his home state of Kansas. Dole served four terms in the House and more than four terms in the Senate. He won the Republican nomination...

    Former President Donald Trump has denied claims by his last White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before his first debate with Joe Biden last year. “The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said Wednesday in a statement released by his Save America PAC. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.” Meadows makes the claim in his forthcoming book “The Chief’s Chief,” which recounts his time in the Trump administration and is due out next...

    While former President Donald Trump has yet to formally announce a 2024 White House bid, he’s already stoking speculation about potential running mates — all of whom, he claims, are “begging” to be on the ticket, according to a new report. Politico, citing interviews with a dozen Trump advisers and associates, reported that the 45th president will largely choose his campaign sidekick based on two factors: unconditional loyalty, and support for Trump’s claim that the 2020 election was stolen by the Democrats. “They’ll have to denounce what happened in 2020,” former Trump campaign staffer Michael Caputo told the outlet. “If...

    President Biden said Wednesday that the conviction of three men for the killing of Ahmaud Arbery “reflect our justice system doing its job,” but added “that alone is not enough.” “Instead, we must recommit ourselves to building a future of unity and shared strength, where no one fears violence because of the color of their skin,” the president added in a statement released by the White House. “My administration will continue to do the hard work to ensure that equal justice under law is not just a phrase emblazoned in stone above the Supreme Court, but a reality for all...

    President Biden admitted Wednesday that Democrats need to “produce results” — a stunning confession following Tuesday’s election upsets. The intense day at the polls saw Democrats lose the gubernatorial race in Virginia — a state Biden won by 10 points in 2020. Meanwhile, his party only narrowly won in heavily Democratic New Jersey on Wednesday. Republicans, who are looking to retake the House in 2022, championed their victories this week as the “red wave.” When pressed about the crushing outcomes, Biden appeared to admit his party had failed to deliver results.

    A tech and telecom staffer for Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced she is leaving her staff to join Apple, the news coming just hours after the Minnesota Democrat slammed Big Tech for having “literally hired so many people” in Washington, DC. April Jones, the deputy legislative director and counsel for Klobuchar on tech and telecom issues, will be joining Apple as a senior government affairs policy counsel, according to Politico. The announcement came Wednesday, one day after Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen spoke in front of the Senate Commerce Committee’s consumer protection subcommittee, blasting her former employer and calling for government regulators...

    Rep. Adam Schiff recalls Robert Mueller’s testimony during the Russian “collusion” inquiry as being “painful” in a new interview — dodging on whether cognitive decline should have disqualified the former FBI director from leading the investigation. In his new book and an interview this week, Schiff (D-Calif.) revealed he would not have wanted Mueller to testify if he knew how “painful” it was going to be, saying Congress had to stick to shorter questions for the beleaguered special counsel. “I did understand immediately why his staff had been so protective and why they were so reluctant to have him testify,”...

    Jason Miller, a former adviser of President Donald Trump, was detained by authorities in Brazil as part of an investigation of “anti-democratic acts” in the South American country, according to local reports. Miller, founder of the conservative social media site Gettr, was reportedly held back by Federal Police on Tuesday morning as he was about to board a private plane for a flight back to the US at Brasília Airport. The former Trump adviser was in Brazil to participate in the country’s Conservative Political Action Conference that ran from Sept. 3 to 4. While in the country, Miller reportedly met...
