    Not himself of late, Jamal Murray got a lecture from Nuggets coach Michael Malone about being more aggressive and not passing up open shots. He listened — and launched. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Murray scored a career-high 50 points and became the first player in NBA history to get that many without trying a free throw as Denver adjusted to a schedule change by handing the Cleveland Cavaliers their ninth straight loss, 120-103 on Friday night. Following the game, Murray was unaware that he had done something unique. "I was just making my shots," he said nonchalantly between sips of a postgame smoothie. "It's kind of cool to make history. It's a cool stat." Murray was cooler than cool. While All-Star starter Nikola Jokic added a triple-double on his birthday, it was Murray's night. The smooth guard made 21 of 25 shots, including 8 of 10...
    Democratic Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin said Sunday that he believed President Donald Trump’s second impeachment was a “dramatic success” despite ending in acquittal. Raskin, who served as the lead House Impeachment Manager, told NBC’s Chuck Todd that he felt the trial had been a success because it was the most bipartisan impeachment in history. WATCH: Todd began the interview by asking Raskin whether he viewed the trial as a success or a failure. “You got seven Republicans to convict,” he said. “Well, I think it was a dramatic success in historical terms,” Raskin replied, arguing that it was the largest conviction in an impeachment trial. “It was by far the most bipartisan majority that’s ever assembled in the Senate to convict a president, which has traditionally been a kind of partisan thing in American history.” Noting that seven Senate Republicans voted to convict — and 10 House Republicans...
    “Even if the final vote did not result in a conviction, the merits of the accusation are not in dispute,” said the Democrat after the acquittal voted by the US Senate in the second impeachment trial of his predecessor republican. “This sad chapter in our history reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must always remain vigilant,” Joe Biden said in a statement. For the second time acquitted. Former US President Donald Trump escaped a guilty verdict on Saturday after a historic trial before the US Senate, which tried him for his role in the January 6 violence on Capitol Hill. Senators were a majority – 57 out of 100 – to vote for a conviction of the billionaire. But it would have taken two-thirds of the upper house to reach a guilty verdict which could have been followed by a sentence...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Donald Trump was acquitted Saturday of inciting the horrific attack on the U.S. Capitol, concluding a historic impeachment trial that spared him the first-ever conviction of a current or former U.S. president but exposed the fragility of America’s democratic traditions and left a divided nation to come to terms with the violence sparked by his defeated presidency. The vote was 57-43, short of the two-thirds needed for conviction. Seven Republicans, including Sen. Pat Toomey, voted to convict. Here are the statements from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware senators. All found Trump guilty. RELATED: Senate Acquits Donald Trump In Second Impeachment Trial, Sen.

    The second political trial against former President Donald Trump continues this Thursday in the Senate with another day of arguments. Miami World / AP Trump faces a charge of “incitement to insurrection” in connection with the bloody attack on the Capitol in Washington, DC, on January 6, which left five people dead, several injured and dozens of arrests. The former president said he will not attend the hearings, rejecting a request from the trial administrators. On Wednesday, Democrats presented their arguments, which included videos of what happened on Capitol Hill. The House Democrats, who prosecuted the former president for “inciting insurrection” in his historic second impeachment trial, tried to make it as difficult for any senator to minimize the level of violence, and by extension Trump’s role in it, showing the assault on videos, from various camera angles. They spent the morning repeating Trump’s words to his supporters before the...
    WASHINGTON - The historic second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump started Tuesday in the U.S. Senate, with Trump accused of inciting insurrection a month ago by urging his supporters to confront lawmakers at the U.S. Capitol as they were certifying that Democrat Joe Biden had defeated Trump in the 2020 election. WATCH TRIAL LIVE The protest turned into mayhem, as about 800 supporters of Trump stormed past authorities into the Capitol, smashed doors and windows, ransacked some congressional offices and scuffled with police.

    The Senate Tuesday convened for the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump and will begin with a debate and vote on whether it is constitutional to try to convict an ex-president. The nine House impeachment managers entered the chamber after all 100 senators filed into the room and were seated for what is expected to be a trial lasting one week or more. The House voted to impeach Trump on Jan. 13 for inciting an insurrection that provoked the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. But Tuesday’s debate will center solely on whether the now-ex president can be convicted. The debate on the constitutionality of the trial is expected to last up to four hours, and the vote may mirror one taken last month in which 45 Republicans voted not to proceed to a trial on the grounds that Trump has now left office and as a...

    The playboy Thai king has reportedly made history by making his mistress the country's second queen, despite previously jailing her for 'disrespecting' the current queen. King Maha Vajiralongkorn, 68, crowned Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi on Tuesday, her 36th birthday, Bild reported. The pair wore matching blue coats as they released fish and birds in a Buddhist ceremony to mark her birthday at Wasukri pier in Bangkok.

    (CNN)The fateful moment when the House of Representatives on Wednesday impeaches President Donald Trump for a second time will rank among the defining moments of America's story long after the citizens enduring these harrowing, tragic days are gone.A cascade of bewildering episodes -- starting with Trump's refusal to accept his election defeat and encompassing his incitement of a mob assault on Congress -- has shattered long-held assumptions of the unassailability of government by the people, for the people. Save for the fracturing of the union before the Civil War, this country's system of political checks and balances has never before been under the kind of strain imposed by an autocratic President desperate to cling to power.A sense of unfolding history is magnified by growing evidence that America is fighting for democracy itself in a struggle that will endure after Trump leaves office next week at the latest.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA/AP) – Rep. Ted Lieu was tapped Tuesday as one of the managers in what is expected to be the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made the announcement shortly after Vice President Mike Pence released an extraordinary letter in which he said he would not invoke the 25th Amendment, just hours before the House was set to vote on a resolution formally calling on him to do so. In a statement released in response to the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead, Lieu (D-Torrance) said it was while he and another lawmaker were “sheltering in place, fearing what a mob incited by Trump would do next” that he decided on attempting a historic second impeachment of Trump. Already scheduled to leave office next week, Trump is on the verge of becoming...

    An inferno that destroyed a century-old church in the East Village last week was sparked by faulty electrical wiring in the vacant building next-door, fire officials said Friday. The fire broke out just before 5 a.m. Saturday on the first floor of an empty five-story building at 48 E. 7th St. and quickly spread to the Middle Collegiate Church on Second Avenue, according to the FDNY. “The fire has been deemed non-suspicious,” an FDNY spokesman said. Roughly 200 firefighters spent nearly eight hours putting out the blaze — but not before it gutted the church, which houses the New York Liberty Bell. The roof of the Gothic Revival-style church was fully engulfed an hour after the inferno started. Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to “do whatever we can to help Middle Collegiate rebuild.” The facade of the Middle Collegiate Church on Second Ave. and East 7th St....

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger apparently doesn’t need to practice to carve up the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran Pittsburgh quarterback threw for a season-high 333 yards and four touchdowns despite being forced to stay away from the team facility all week due to COVID-19 protocols and the Steelers stayed unbeaten with a 36-10 victory over the Bengals on Sunday. Roethlisberger, one of four Steelers put on the COVID-19 list last Monday following contact tracing after tight end Vance McDonald tested positive for the novel coronavirus, completed 27 of 46 passes on a blustery afternoon at Heinz Field. Roethlisberger connected with Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster for touchdowns in the first half and found rookie Chase Claypool twice in the second half as Pittsburgh improved to 9-0. Cincinnati rookie quarterback Joe Burrow struggled to generate any momentum behind a patchwork offensive line. Two weeks after a promising victory over Tennessee, the...

    Douglas Emhoff and vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris. Editor’s Note, Nov. 7, 2020: Kamala Harris and Douglas Emhoff are officially going to be the nation’s first Second Family. As you may have heard, Sen. Kamala Harris would WILL be a historic vice president. Most attention has rightly been focused on the barriers she’ll break as the first woman, the first African American, and the first Indian American to hold that office. There is, however, another barrier of importance—one that before the Civil Rights era would have been just as unthinkable—relating to Harris and her husband, Douglas Emhoff, who is the potential first Second Gentleman. They could will be the first Second Family built around an interracial marriage, as well as the first to include a non-Christian spouse—Emhoff is Jewish. I want to talk about both of these breakthroughs, but given our country’s long and sordid history with Black-white unions, let’s start with that aspect....

Shortly after Deivi Garcia became the Yankees’ youngest-ever playoff starter, the organization elected for J.A. Happ to start the second inning — a move that quickly turned into a decisive, four-run nightmare for the Bombers. Even more, it overshadowed a historic night at the plate for designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton, whose first of two home runs secured a place in the Yankees record books. Garcia’s outing began with a hiccup when hot-batted outfielder Randy Arozarena launched a solo home run that put Tampa up 1-0 in the first inning, though that was unlikely the root...

    California firefighters are struggling to contain two of the largest blazes ever recorded in the state after days of high temperatures and little moisture created an environment set for disaster. The state is currently experiencing one of its worst fire seasons on record as more than 7,000 fires have burned through more than 1.4 million acres. Roughly half of the destruction is due to two fire clusters, the LNU Lightning Complex and SCU Lightning Complex, that have together burned more than 700,000 acres. The LNU, the third largest fire recorded in the state, is concentrated in California’s wine country north of Napa. Firefighters have made some progress getting a handle on the fire, which started about a week ago, since favorable weather conditions came over the area over the weekend. Still, the fire is little more than a quarter contained and has so far killed 5 people while damaging or...
    Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is testing the political waters for a historic second term. McAuliffe, the state's governor from 2014 to 2018, filed paperwork with Virginia's Department of Elections to set up a 2021 gubernatorial campaign committee. "While this is a paperwork change, Gov. McAuliffe is making no decisions on 2021 until after we defeat Donald Trump and his hateful ideology," a McAuliffe spokesman told the Washington Examiner. State law stipulates that Virginia governors are elected for four-year terms but can't immediately run again. Only former Gov. Mills Godwin has served two non-consecutive terms, one from 1966 to 1970 and the other from 1974 to 1978. McAuliffe, a past Democratic National Committee chairman, toyed with the idea of a presidential bid, but he decided against running when former Vice President Joe Biden, now the party's standard-bearer, entered the race. He's weighed in on Biden's effort, telling Democrats over the...

    The economy contracted at a historic 32.9% annual rate in the second quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Thursday in a preliminary analysis. The negative growth in the second quarter comes on the heels of the economy contracting at a 5% rate in the first quarter. The contraction in Thursday’s report is by far the largest in U.S. history. Until now, the largest drop in GDP was at a 10% rate in 1958, according to the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis.

    Reuters July 30, 2020 0 Comments The U.S. economy likely contracted at its steepest pace since the Great Depression in the second quarter as the COVID-19 pandemic destroyed consumer and business spending, potentially wiping out more than five years of growth. The bulk of the historic plunge in gross domestic product expected to be reported by the Commerce Department on Thursday occurred in April when activity almost ground to an abrupt halt after restaurants, bars and factories among others were shuttered in mid-March to slow the spread of coronavirus. Though activity picked up starting in May, momentum has slowed amid a resurgence in new cases of the illness, especially in the densely populated South and West regions where authorities in hard-hit areas are closing businesses again or pausing reopenings. That has tempered hopes of a sharp rebound in growth in the third quarter. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on...
