    The ex-Bill Clinton adviser at the center of the tell-all Vanity Fair article where he claimed the former President sabotaged Hillary's White House run has announced he is standing down from PR company Teneo to 'focus on his family office'. Doug Band, who used to be one of Clinton's closest advisers, said he is resigning from his position as president of Teneo, the communications and advisory firm he co-founded with Declan Kelly and Paul Keary back in 2011.   Band, 48, broke the news to his 800-strong workforce in an email Monday, according to the Financial Times.   In it, he said he was bidding farewell with a 'heavy heart' but that he didn't want to regret staying too long at the company at the detriment of pursuing 'other dreams and ideas' - something he cited as a regret from his time working with Clinton.  The shock announcement comes just one week...

    The fallout from a fatal shooting following dueling demonstrations at Denver's Civic Center Park on October 10 has gone national, with the right-wing media attempting to blame a Black Lives Matter protester for instigating the incident even though the fatal shot was allegedly fired by Matthew Dolloff, a man hired to serve as a security guard for a 9News team. In one video, that protester, identified in multiple outlets as Jacob Kelly, can be seen yelling, "Mace me, motherfucker" at Lee Keltner, the 49-year-old victim who was officially identified by the Denver coroner's office on October 12.

    Nineteen detainees in the same dormitory at the Aurora Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days, according to a report from Congressman Jason Crow's office, marking the most significant outbreak at that detention center. "This spread within a single dorm shows the inherently dangerous nature of congregate settings like ICE detention centers," says Liz Jordan, an attorney with the Denver-based Civil Rights Enforcement and Education Center. "Even if the facility were following all CDC recommendations, an outbreak like this is not only possible, but likely. The safest thing ICE can do is release people to shelter at home with their families. Aurora Fire Rescue confirmed that it had been notified of the outbreak by facility staffers on October 2, per local ordinance.Related Stories Detainee Transfers Lead to COVID-19 Increase at Aurora ICE Facility Aurora ICE Facility Now Offering COVID-19 Tests to All Detainees House...

Instead, it’s a storm center.” Clinton also stated that Trump is determined “to deny responsibility” and that “If you want a president who defines the job as spending hours a day watching TV and zapping people on social media, he’s your man.” Clinton criticized Trump’s coronavirus response and stated, “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center. There’s only chaos. Just one thing never changes, his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there.

    If you're going to break into your city's police headquarters and commit arson while sporting a tattoo of your last name in giant letters on your back, a word of advice: Wear a shirt. Suspected arsonist Edward Schinzing, 32, did not follow that advice when he allegedly attempted to set fire to the Portland Justice Center, which is near the center of the ongoing protests and riots in downtown Portland, Oregon.
