earlier call:

    Madison Square Garden was surprised that Gov. Andrew Cuomo opened New York Knicks and Rangers games to fans so soon, President Andy Lustgarten said Friday. Gov. Cuomo announced Wednesday that local arenas could open to 10 percent capacity, or about 2,000 people at Madison Square Garden, this month. The Knicks will have their first game in front of fans on Feb. 23 when they play the Golden State Warriors. “This was earlier than we had expected,” Lustgarten told analysts on a Friday earnings call. A week earlier, Lustgarten had said on an earnings call for Madison Square Garden Sports, owner of the Knicks and Rangers, that he was encouraged that wedding receptions and parties could increase their capacity to 150 people in March. To some observers, that looked like an indication that the company believed approval for fans to return to games was still a month away. One MSG analyst...
    ATLANTA - While election officials in Georgia were verifying signatures on absentee ballot envelopes in one metro Atlanta county, President Donald Trump pressed a lead investigator to "find the fraud" and said it would make the investigator a national hero. The December call, described by a person familiar with it who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to describe the sensitive nature of the discussion, is yet another link in the chain of the extraordinary pressure campaign waged by Trump on state officials as he sought to overturn the results of the November election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden. It is one of at least three phone calls, held over the course of a month between early December and early January, in which Trump sought help from high-level Georgia officials in subverting the election — only to be rebuffed each time. Trump lost to Biden...
    By BEN NADLER ATLANTA (AP) — While election officials in Georgia were verifying signatures on absentee ballot envelopes in one metro-Atlanta county, President Donald Trump pressured the lead investigator to “find the fraud” and said it would make the investigator a national hero. The December call, described by a person familiar with it who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to describe the sensitive nature of the discussion, preceded Trump’s Jan. 2 call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger where he asked election officials to “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s win in the state’s presidential election. The call was first reported Saturday by The Washington Post. The White House had no immediate comment. The call to the investigator occurred as election officials were conducting an audit of signatures on absentee ballot envelopes in Cobb County. The audit eventually identified only two minor issues out of...
    'I'll be with you,' Trump said earlier in the day, encouraging his supporters to march on the building. Mobs of violent Donald Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday on direct orders from Trump himself, who encouraged protesters gathered in the District of Columbia to march to the building to help Republicans steal the 2020 election. At a rally earlier Wednesday, Trump told his supporters, "I'll be with you" on a march down the National Mall to the Capitol, where lawmakers were gathering to formally certify President-elect Joe Biden's win. Republicans are attempting to block that certification by objecting to the electoral vote state by state, though that effort is mostly certain to fail. After Trump's speech, hordes of Trump supporters violently pushed past federal police officers to enter the Capitol building, forcing the building into lockdown due to...
    The Dallas Cowboys could have tied the game if not for a missed call from the referees and a catch from CeeDee Lamb.  The Dallas Cowboys are hanging in with the Baltimore Ravens as the game turns to the second half. Beside a bountiful load of injures and inadequate defensive play all season long, Dallas only remained a touchdown behind as the clock struck zero in a 17-10 line. This could be a moment that comes back to bite Dallas in their keister. One due to bad officiating and the other by a rookie drop. Two hands CeeDee. Two hands at all times.

    Joe Biden put out a statement Wednesday night reacting to the lack of charges against three officers in the shooting of Breonna Taylor. Two of the officers were not charged, the third was charged with wanton endangerment. Biden’s statement says, “In the wake of her tragic death, we mourn with her mother, family, and community and ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America.” “I know for so many people today’s decision does not answer that call. A federal investigation remains ongoing, but we do not need to wait for the final judgment of that investigation to do more to deliver justice for Breonna,” he continued. “We know what is necessary. We need to start by addressing the use of excessive force, banning choke holds, and overhauling no-knock warrants.” The former vice president adds that “violence is never acceptable,” and in brief comments to reporters earlier, Biden...

Andy Beshear for calling in the National Guard as the state braced for unrest following the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case. “I will be speaking to the governor, we have a call scheduled,” Trump said. “I understand he's called up the National Guard.

    PRESIDENT Donald Trump abruptly left his press briefing moments earlier to take "an emergency call," but did not specify what the call was about as he left the room. When a reporter asked him about the Breonna Taylor case, he commented and said "I thought it was really brilliant." He then went on to praise Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, whom he believes "is doing a fantastic job. I think he's a star." Trump then repeated a quote Cameron said earlier that day, saying "justice is not easy" and "mob justice is not justice." "I think it's a very positive thing it'll all work out," he continued. 1Credit: AP:Associated Press Most read in NewsSAVAGE ATTACKPaedo, 19, rapes 18-month-old baby girl while her parents had popped out'MADE BRITAIN GREAT BY GOING'Meg & Harry told to LEAVE US by Trump adviser after vote pleaBreakingBASE ALERTAir Force base on lockdown as ‘emergency declared...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday called President Trump "foolish" for his comments on the candidate's mental acuity and unfounded claims suggesting that Biden is taking performance-enhancing drugs, as some pundits are warning that Trump might be lowering expectations for his opponent in the first debate happening later this month. "I'm looking forward to the debate and he's a fool," Biden said in an interview with WFLA 8. "The comments are just foolish. Get ready, Mr. President, here I come." Biden laughed when the WFLA 8 reporter first started asking the question, referencing allegations Trump has made that Biden is "mentally shot" which he re-upped in an interview with "Fox & Friends" earlier on Tuesday. BIDEN SAYS HE'S WORRIED ABOUT TRUMP'S 'INSURRECTION' TALK IN SPANISH-LANGUAGE INTERVIEW In the conversation with "Fox & Friends," Trump was asked what challenges he believes a debate with the political veteran Biden might present, and...

The source also said that as far as he was concerned, the next time they will be talking as a group would be next Thursday. Dienhart’s post was in response to rumors that began swirling earlier in the day that all the Big Ten coaches were meeting...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called out CNN’s Chris Cuomo Wednesday for challenging the senator to give an interview on his show when the network only aired a fraction of a several-minute interview he gave CNN earlier this week. Cuomo dared Cruz to come on his show and "make the case" in a tweet earlier with a retweeted video of Cruz criticizing the increase in unemployment compensation amid the coronavirus pandemic. “First question: show me the numbers, please? #doyourjob," Cuomo added. Cruz quickly shot back at the "Prime Time" host, telling Cuomo the clip he retweeted was from a “CNN EXCLUSIVE yesterday...that y’all largely refused to air.” He said he spoke to the network for nearly seven minutes but CNN only ran “15 sec on TV.” “When you air the interviews you already have, then maybe we can discuss new ones. #FakeNews #doyourjob,” he tweeted.
