    ustice Department prosecutors have formally walked back their assertion in a court filing that said Capitol rioters sought to "capture and assassinate elected officials."

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — White supremacists plotted to attack power stations in the southeastern U.S., and an Ohio teenager who allegedly shared the plan said he wanted the group to be “operational” on a fast-tracked timeline if President Donald Trump were to lose his re-election bid, the FBI alleges in an affidavit that was mistakenly unsealed. The teen was in a text group with more than a dozen people in the fall of 2019 when he introduced the idea of saving money to buy a ranch where they could participate in militant training, according to the affidavit, which was filed under...

    LANSING, MI - When Rudy Giuliani and his witnesses challenged election results last week in front of the House Oversight Committee, nobody testified under oath. The same was true the day before with election challengers in the Senate Oversight Committee. That pattern changed Tuesday during three hours of sworn testimony from Chris Thomas, a former state elections director who served as an elections advisor to Detroit this fall. **SNIP** Despite the challenge, the level of mistakes were minor and should not be confused with widespread fraud, Thomas said. The number of ballots in question is negligible, Thomas said, considering the...

    An Illinois artist was left baffled after a man paid him to paint a mural of “Sesame Street’s” Cookie Monster on the side of a building — that he didn’t actually own. Joshua Hawkins said he recently got an angry phone call from the actual owner of the Peoria building, “asking why the hell I painted this ‘crazy ****’ on his building.” “Evidently the guy that hired me to paint the mural was NOT really the owner of the building!,” Hawkins wrote on Facebook.

    WASHINGTON — An accident that occurred as a decades-old nuclear warhead was being dismantled at the government's Pantex facility near Amarillo, Texas, could have caused the device to detonate, a nonprofit organization charged Thursday. The Project on Government Oversight said the "near miss" event, which led the Energy Department to fine the plant's operator $110,000, was due partly to requirements that technicians at the plant work up to 72 hours per week. The Pantex plant, 17 miles northeast of Amarillo, is the country's only factory for assembly and disassembly of nuclear weapons. The organization said it was told by unidentified...

    ATLANTA — Georgia's Republican secretary of state was forced to issue a correction Friday after he initially claimed that the Peach State had certified that Joe Biden won the state's presidential election, beating President Trump by more than 12,000 votes and securing 16 Electoral College votes. An earlier announcement around 12.30 p.m. had said the state had completed its certification - but around an hour later, the office of Brad Raffensperger, the beleagured secretary of state, issued the correction. The snafu was just the latest embarrassing turn in what has been a chaotic electoral process in the traditional Republican state....

    A technical glitch reportedly caused Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden to receive 6,000 votes in Michigan that were actually for incumbent President Donald Trump. Though the glitch has reportedly been rectified and the votes returned to the president, questions remain over how widespread this glitch may have been. “In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates,” Michigan Republican Party chair Laura Cox announced at a press conference Friday. She added, “The county clerk came forward and said, ‘tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.’...
