    Republican Senator for Florida Marco Rubio on Sunday declined to speculate on rumors that former US president Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, may challenge him for his seat in 2022, saying only that anyone seeking to take his position in the Senate will face a “tough race.” Speaking to Fox News, Rubio also said that trying the former president in the Senate would be counterproductive and like “pouring gasoline on the fire.” Ivanka Trump, a former senior adviser to the president, is said to be considering a run for office and rumors were given a further boost after she and her...

    Robert Kraft's sex spa videos will now officially NEVER see the light of day ... a judge has ordered the footage to be destroyed immediately. 79-year-old Kraft allegedly received sex acts on multiple occasions inside the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla. back in January 2019 ... and cops say they caught the whole thing on camera. Law enforcement had intended to use the clips as evidence against Kraft after prosecutors hit the New England Patriots owner with two misdemeanor charges of solicitation. But, as we previously reported, Kraft's dream team of lawyers successfully convinced multiple judges the...

    Several Republican senators on Sunday discouraged suggestions that the chamber could convict former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial. "Well first of all, I think the trial is stupid," Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told "Fox News Sunday." "I think it's counterproductive. We already have a flaming fire in this country and [impeachment is] taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire." Rubio added he believes Trump "bears responsibility for some of what happened" during the deadly riots at the Capitol earlier this month but that he does not believe impeachment is the right...

    MIAMI – Florida’s chief financial officer on Monday told the International Olympic Committee that the state would be happy to host the Olympics Games amid speculation that current host Japan may back out. Jimmy Patronis sent a letter to Thomas Bach, the head of the IOC, “to encourage you to consider relocating the 2021 Olympics from Tokyo, Japan to the United States of America, and more specifically to Florida.” “With media reports of leaders in Japan ‘privately’ concluding that they are too concerned about the pandemic for the 2021 Olympics to take place, there is still time to deploy a...

It’s counterproductive," Rubio declared. "Second, I look back at a time, for example, Richard Nixon, who had clearly committed crimes and wrongdoing, and in hindsight I think we would all agree that President Ford’s pardon was important for the...

The teen — who is now 17 and lives in Florida — is identified only as John Doe and was between...

    Donald Trump has vowed he will be “back in some form” after departing the White House for the final time as president. He told supporters as he prepared to fly to Florida that it had been “a great honor to be your president”.

    A Florida college is seeking to fire a professor whose controversial tweets — including one claiming “black privilege is real” – led to widespread calls for his termination as protests raged in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. An investigation by the University of Central Florida determined that associate psychology professor Charles Negy created a “hostile” classroom environment and tried to deter students from filing complaints, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The probe also found that Negy didn’t report a student’s claim that she was sexually assaulted by one of his teaching assistants and gave false information during the investigation, which...
