Dismal polls and poor debate performances are predictably not playing well within President Trump's campaign — but campaign manager Bill Stepien is reportedly not doing much to change that. Stepien's weekly pep talks encourage staffers to look away from "perennially horrible public polls" and find ways they can "win the week," staffers tell Axios. Stepien is reportedly fond of comparing the campaign to a plane flying through turbulence, saying "It's our job to safely land the plane."
FBI agents are investigating whether emails allegedly found on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing presidential candidate Joe Biden son's supposed business activities in Ukraine are linked to a foreign intelligence operation, according to a report. Two sources familiar with the matter told NBC on Thursday night bureau chiefs are looking into the possibility that the email cache - allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden - may have been unearthed with help from a power hostile to the US, such as Russia. FBI agents recovered the laptop and hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, the Trump-friendly newspaper that first printed a story based on the alleged emails.
Prosecutors provided enough evidence to move toward trial for five Michigan men accused of plotting to kidnap the state's governor because of her measures to control spread of the coronavirus and they will all remain held without bond, a federal judge ruled Friday. A two-day preliminary hearing in Grand Rapids this week featured testimony by one of the FBI agents who ran the investigation, relying on confidential informants and undercover agents to thwart the purported scheme to abduct Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sally Berens said the five men's cases can go to a grand jury, which will determine whether to issue indictments.
U.S. President Donald Trump participates in the first presidential debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at the Health Education Campus of Case Western Reserve University on September 29, 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio. The New York Times editorial board on Friday dropped a massive essay that outlines the case against re-electing President Donald Trump to a second term. The essay does not hold back in describing Trump's presidency in apocalyptic terms, and it begins by saying he "poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II."
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he was "wrong" not to wear a mask to the White House Rose Garden event for the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Christie and several other attendees and White House officials later tested positive for COVID-19. In an interview with The New York Times, Christie detailed his experience since his COVID-19 diagnosis, saying he hoped his experience showed others that "you should follow CDC guidelines in public no matter where you are and wear a mask to protect yourself and others."
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday night claimed Twitter is holding a "gun to my head" after she posted a link to a critical story about Joe Biden. Ms McEnany told Fox News's Hannity that she has been “permanently” banned from her personal account after redistributing the article, which both Facebook and Twitter have restricted access to over concerns about its veracity. "It's not a temporary blockage," said Ms McEnany.

A convicted gang member accused of beating singer R. Kelly in his jail cell was allowed to roam “a great distance” at the federal jail in downtown Chicago and no one “lifted a finger” to ward off the attack, Kelly's lawyers alleged in a court filing Friday. Kelly's attorneys want to question Jeremiah Shane Farmer under oath about the August attack as part of their ongoing efforts to have Kelly released on bond pending trial on sexual abuse-related charges. Farmer, a convicted member of the Latin Kings, outed himself as Kelly's attacker in a court filing last month in Hammond, where he's facing a mandatory life sentence for racketeering conspiracy involving a 1999 double murder.
President Donald Trump did not deny a New York Times report that he owes $421 million at a Thursday town hall event. The Times revealed that Trump has to pay back $421 million in the coming years in a bombshell exposé detailing his personal and business tax returns. The documents obtained by the outlet showed that Trump had paid $0 in federal income taxes for a decade before paying $750 in 2016 and 2017.
The White House was warned by US intelligence agencies last year that Rudolph Giuliani was targetted by Russia to feed misinformation to Donald Trump. Reporting by The Washington Post, based on information from four former officials familiar with the matter, says that the president's personal lawyer interacted with individuals tied to Russian intelligence during his December 2019 visit to Ukraine. The warnings from the intelligence services to the White House led national security adviser Robert O'Brien to caution Trump that information brought back from Ukraine by Mr Giuliani should be considered contaminated by Russia, according to one of the officials.
A major Democratic group on Friday pulled its last remaining ads from Colorado's closely watched U.S. Senate race, a sign that the party thinks its nominee has the crucial race in the bag. Senate Majority PAC said it will cancel $1.2 million in television ads and spend the money elsewhere as Democrats press a newly expanded Senate map, which Republicans on the run in GOP strongholds such as Alaska and South Carolina. Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, 68, is challenging Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, 46, in Colorado, a state that has trended sharply to the left since President Donald Trump's 2016 election.
President Donald Trump shared a satirical story claiming that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had shut down the social network's servers to protect Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The story, by conservative satirical site The Babylon Bee, was joking about Twitter's attempts earlier this week to limit the spread of a questionable New York Post story about Hunter Biden. Trump shared the story on Friday morning without seeming to realize it was a joke, writing: "Why is Twitter doing this.
Proposing marriage can take months of planning or in the moment. But even the best proposal plans can't take into account variables like a certain Miami Heat legend popping in for a photobomb moment. Dwyane Wade was walking down California's Rosewood Miramar Beach during the middle of Ryan Basch's proposal to Katie Ryan, and the former NBA star's reaction was priceless.
Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with Joe Biden's campaign tested positive for coronavirus.
New Zealanders are poised to decide on two landmark social issues during an election Saturday: whether to legalize recreational marijuana and whether to legalize euthanasia. A “yes” vote on both referendums would arguably make the nation of 5 million one of the more liberal countries in the world. Polls indicate the euthanasia referendum is likely to pass while the result of the marijuana measure remains uncertain.
Reprieve from the long hours of darkness is just around the corner, when spring brings with it Daylight Saving Time and the turning forward of the clocks. Most clocks, digital watches, and smartphones will change automatically to reflect the new time, but if you have an analogue clock, set a reminder to turn the clock forward an hour. To make the time change easier, which can take your body up to a week to adjust to, neurologist and sleep expert of the Cleveland Clinic Tina Waters, MD, suggests making small changes in the weeks leading up to the start of Daylight Saving.
Rather than debate each other on Thursday evening, Donald Trump and Joe Biden spoke at separate "town hall" events, both of which began at 8:00 p.m. This was probably inevitable after the president was diagnosed with COVID-19. The thing about Trump and Guthrie is that for most of the evening it really did sound like a debate despite the absence of the other candidate. Here was Trump finally doing what he should have done in his first exchange with Biden (can you believe it was really three weeks ago?): not interrupting, cracking jokes, pushing back against school closures and other lockdown measures, which has always been the single best wedge issue available to him in this campaign.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein hugged Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham at the close of Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings on Thursday. Feinstein also thanked Graham for leading the hearings.
