    Transportation Secretary nominee Pete Buttigieg suggested raising the federal gas tax in order to fund infrastructure initiatives during his confirmation hearing Thursday before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott asked the former South Bend mayor if he would favor a federal gas tax increase to pay for the Highway Trust Fund. The fund is mostly financed by revenue from federal gas taxes but has become less financially solvent in recent years, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center. “Well, I think all options need to be on the table,” Buttigieg responded. “As you know, the gas tax has not been increased since 1993, and it’s never been pegged to inflation. And it’s one of the reasons why the current state of the Highway Trust Fund is that there’s more going out than coming in.” WATCH:  The federal gas tax is currently 18.4 cents...

    The price of bitcoin plunged more than 10 percent on Thursday amid fears of a US regulatory crackdown on the controversial cryptocurrency. Janet Yellen, President Biden’s pick to head the Treasury, gave investors the jitters when she voiced worries this week that the anonymous currency could be used by criminals — provoking fears of a regulatory clampdown under the Biden administration. “I think many are used, at least in a transactions sense, mainly for illicit financing, and I think we really need to examine ways in which we can curtail their use and make sure that money laundering does not occur through these channels,” Yellen said Tuesday. Bitcoin hit an all-time high of $41,986 per coin on Jan. 8, but has since lost more than a quarter of its value, recently trading below the $32,000 mark on Thursday, according to Coindesk.

    (CNN)US President Joe Biden assumed office yesterday, tearing up his predecessor's legacy as he made the pandemic his priority. After being sworn in as President, Biden referred to Covid-19 as a "once in a century virus that silently stalks the country," during his inauguration speech. "We'll press forward with speed and urgency, for we have much to do in this winter of peril and significant possibilities," he added, as an ensemble forecast by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) projected 100,000 more deaths in the next few weeks.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia judge has denied a request to revoke bail for two Virginia men who traveled to the Pennsylvania Convention Center where votes were being counted and were arrested originally on weapons charges, despite prosecutors’ objections that they attended a rally last week that turned into a violent siege of the U.S. Capitol. Prosecutors had argued that Joshua Macias, 42, and Antonio LaMotta, 61, each violated the conditions of his $750,000 bail by participating in the riot-turned-insurrection. A judge declined to revoke bail but added conditions that the two men may not use social media or attend political rallies while they are free on bail. The judge also ordered the two to stand trial on a series of election fraud charges added by District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office Thursday, including attempted interference with primaries and elections and conspiracy. In November, as Philadelphia elections workers counted ballots over...

    (CNN)Surviving Covid-19 may give you immunity for at least five months, but it won't stop you transmitting the virus to others.A new study led by Public Health England, a government agency, found that people who have been infected by Covid-19 may have immunity to the virus for at least five months. The findings are preliminary and have not yet been peer reviewed, but they offer some reassurance to frontline health care workers. The researchers monitored almost 21,000 healthcare workers from across the United Kingdom between June and November and regularly tested them to see if they had been infected with Covid-19.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” acting Deputy DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said that President Donald Trump’s statement on Thursday about the riot at the U.S. Capitol is “what we wanted to hear on Wednesday,” the day that the riot took place, but that the president’s message about the riot on Thursday was one that came “late.” Cuccinelli said, “[W]hat he said on Thursday is what we wanted to hear on Wednesday, right? And it was late.” Cuccinelli added that he “can’t imagine in a million years that he’d be calling people to violence next week.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Kate Cain blocked a 3-point shot with five seconds remaining and Whitney Brown followed with the clinching free throw and Nebraska upset No. 23 Michigan State 68-64 on Sunday. The Spartans, who went cold in the fourth quarter, pulled within 67-64 on a putback by Kendall Bostic. A quick foul sent Bella Cravens to the line where she missed two free throws. Alyza Winston’s attempt to tie was blocked by Cain, allowing Nebraska to escape with a win after falling 64-62 at No. 15 Michigan on Thursday. Isabelle Bourne scored 18 points to lead the Cornhuskers (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten Conference) and Sam Haiby added 11 with 10 rebounds.

    In the wake of Wednesday’s deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, calls are mounting for Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms to suspend President Donald Trump’s access to social media — permanently. Facebook and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, on Thursday suspended Trump’s account for at least two weeks, and possibly indefinitely. Twitter, however, merely revoked Trump’s posting privileges for 12 hours after he posted a video that repeated false claims about election fraud and praised the rioters who stormed the Capitol. On Friday, the company permanently banned two Trump loyalists — former national security adviser Michael Flynn and attorney Sidney Powell — as part of a broader purge of accounts promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory. Twitter said it will take action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm. “Given the renewed potential for violence surrounding this type of behavior in the coming days, we...
    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Grammy-nominated rapper DaBaby has been released from a Los Angeles County jail after an arrest in Beverly Hills, where police said he took a loaded gun into an upscale store on Rodeo Drive. DaBaby, whose legal name is Jonathan Kirk, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a loaded gun in a vehicle, Beverly Hills police said. The 29-year-old was one of a group of men who walked into a store on an upscale stretch of Rodeo Drive, police said. Store security called police after seeing a gun in one man’s waistband, and officers met the men as they returned to their vehicle, police said. The other men were released and DaBaby was arrested and jailed. He was freed later Thursday after posting $35,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday. An email sent...

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – For the first time on Thursday, U.S. officials recorded more than 4,000 COVID-19 deaths — the most virus-related deaths the country has had in one day since the pandemic’s start. More than 11,700 people died in the last three days. It’s the third day in a row of record daily deaths from the disease, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, while the number of people who have been infected topped more than 21.56 million. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s most recent forecast projected there will be between 405,000 and 438,000 deaths by the end of the month. The previous forecast, published December 30, projected up to 424,000 deaths by January 23. The ongoing spread of the virus and climbing number of deaths come even as the US is working to distribute vital COVID-19 vaccines — a process that has been criticized for being...
    Health professionals and other scientists are concerned that the assault on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday may also have been a COVID-19 superspreader event. The shouting mob that invaded the building was largely unmasked and not observing social distancing as they went through the halls of Congress and entered some lawmakers’ offices. Anne Rimoin, an epidemiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, told The New York Times that, “People yelling and screaming, chanting, exerting themselves — all of those things provide opportunity for the virus to spread, and this virus takes those opportunities.” John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center said the virus killed a record 4,085 people in the U.S. on Thursday. Infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci told National Public Radio in an interview Thursday that he believes “things will get worse as we get into January.”  A result, he said, of “the holiday season travel and the congregate settings...
    The Wall Street Journal editorial board has called on Donald Trump to resign, in an abrupt severance of their previously accommodating position. The paper, owned by Rupert Murdoch, has been more tolerant of the president than some of their rivals. But on Thursday night they knifed him, telling him he needed to leave before he was impeached. 'If Mr. Trump wants to avoid a second impeachment, his best path would be to take personal responsibility and resign,' they wrote.  Donald Trump, pictured on Thursday night addressing the nation, should resign, the WSJ said The WSJ editorial board on Thursday night published a damning indictment of Trump's actions 'This would be the cleanest solution since it would immediately turn presidential duties over to Mr. Pence.  'And it would give Mr. Trump agency, a la Richard Nixon, over his own fate.'  'It is best for everyone, himself included, if he...
    At a press conference Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham said he is against Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th Amendment and removing President Donald Trump from power at this time. Democratic leaders in the House and Senate and a number of lawmakers, even one Republican, have floated Pence pulling the trigger on the 25th after Trump incited Wednesday's riot on Capitol Hill.  But Graham maintained Trump should be left in place for two weeks, as he also praised the president's record and said he doesn't regret their cozy relationship.   'I do not believe that's appropriate at this point,' Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill. 'I'm looking for a peaceful transfer of power. If something else happens all options would be on the table.'   Sen. Lindsey Graham said at a press conference Thursday that he was against Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump...

    Popular livestreaming platform Twitch disabled the account of President Donald Trump on Thursday, the company confirmed in a statement to News Brig. “In light of yesterday’s shocking attack on the Capitol, we have disabled President Trump’s Twitch channel,” the statement reads. “Given the current extraordinary circumstance and the President’s incendiary rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence.” On Wednesday, a pro-Trump mob attempted an insurrection in Washington, D.C. Thousands stormed the seat of American government and clashed with law enforcement, vandalizing the Capitol building and trashing the offices of legislators, who were forced to shelter in place or evacuate the House and Senate chambers.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Congress’ confirmation of Joe Biden as winner of the presidential election (all times local): 2:20 p.m. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump should immediately be removed from office or Congress may proceed to impeach him. Pelosi on Thursday joined those calling on the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump from office. It came a day after a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, forcing the building into lockdown. Trump called them “very special” people and said he loved them. She said at the Capitol: “The president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America.” Pelosi says he could do further harm to the country: “Any day can be a horror show for America.” Democrats and some Republicans want Trump removed before his term ends on Jan. 20 with Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration.

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf called on President Trump to condemn what he called "unconscionable" violence at the Capitol while saying he intends to stay on in his post. "What transpired yesterday was tragic and sickening," Wolf said in a statement Thursday morning.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Good morning, well the warm-up is going to have to wait at least another day as cloud cover sticks around through the day once again making it tough to see temperatures climbing out of the mid-30s again.

Pence’s appearance at the party’s winter meeting in Amelia Island, Fla. was never officially announced, though he was widely expected to attend.

A spokesperson for the vice president did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Pence’s plans. It’s unclear if his appearance at the meeting will be rescheduled.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Investigators were looking for guns during the nighttime raid of the family home of Dolal Idd, the man killed last week in an alleged shootout with Minneapolis police, according to a search warrant filed in the case. WCCO-TV obtained a copy of the search warrant Monday, and it sheds light on what led up to Wednesday’s deadly encounter in south Minneapolis as well as the raid that happened hours later at Idd’s Eden Prairie home. According to the warrant, officers with the Minneapolis Police Department’s Community Response Team were using an informant to buy guns that Idd, 23, was allegedly selling illegally. Officers stopped Idd Wednesday evening at a gas station just off of East 36th Street and Cedar Avenue. A gunfight broke out, and ended with Idd dying at the scene. Minneapolis police say officer body camera video released Thursday showed that Idd...
    Getty Zach LaVine After an 0-3 start to the season that featured two blowouts and a heartbreaker that should have gone the Chicago Bulls way, morale had been low in Chicago. A win over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday was encouraging, but Thursday’s rematch with the Wizards was a true proving ground for the Bulls who were missing four players to health protocols in Lauri Markkanen, Ryan Arcidiacono, Chandler Hutchinson, and Tomas Satoransky. It was a test of resiliency for a developing lineup still warming up to coach Billy Donovan’s standards and expectations in a new scheme. And Chicago took the challenges in stride. Seven players scored in double digits as playmaking was aplenty with 34 assists dished to the tune of a 133-130 victory on Thursday night. Otto Porter Jr. paced the team with 28 points and 12 rebounds. Zach LaVine struggled, shooting 6 of 17 overall...

The Dakota County District Court granted Attorney General Keith Ellison’s motion for a temporary injunction Thursday against Alibi, a bar which has opened multiple times for indoor dining in recent weeks.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump extended certain restrictions on legal immigration and on visas that allow immigrants to temporarily work in the United States on Thursday, just hours before those restrictions were set to lapse. Trump extended the restrictions through March 31, two months after he will leave office.The continuation of the restrictions, which comes with just 20 days left in the President's term, are the latest effort to bar the entry of immigrants to the country. Restricting immigration has been a focus of the administration since its first days when it issued the travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries, and it has continued into Trump's final year in office as the White House uses the coronavirus pandemic as cover. In April, Trump signed an immigration proclamation targeting people outside of the US seeking to legally migrate to the US, with some exceptions. That order, which was set to lapse, was extended...

Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle David Bakhtiari suffered what the team believes is a season-ending torn ACL in practice on Thursday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said.

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are trying to determine who hacked the Broward County Commission's Twitter account early Thursday morning. Several bizarre tweets went out Thursday morning, including one that said: “#BrowardCounts Sena de r imtrees rrrrtr seeds ssszrt.” The now-deleted tweets appeared to be largely nonsensical combinations of letters and symbols, the South Florida SunSentinel reported. “Obviously someone has hacked into this Broward Gov’t account.

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Sailors involved in transferring fuel oil from an Iraqi tanker in the Persian Gulf to another vessel owned by a shipping company traded in the U.S. discovered a “suspicious object” they fear could be a mine, authorities said Thursday. The discovery comes amid heightened tensions between Iran and the U.S. in the waning days of President Donald Trump’s administration. Already, America has conducted B-52 bomber flyovers and sent a nuclear submarine into the Persian Gulf over what Trump officials describe as the possibility of an Iranian attack on the one-year anniversary of the U.S. drones strike in Baghdad that killed a top Iranian general. Two private security firms said sailors feared they found a limpet mine on the MT Pola, a Liberian-flagged tanker that was receiving assistance Thursday in the Persian Gulf off Basra. A limpet mine is a type of naval mine that...

    President Trump and first lady Melania Trump are returning early to Washington Thursday morning from Florida, the White House announced unexpectedly last night. A senior Trump adviser told CBS News that the president had initially planned to celebrate New Year's Eve at Mar-a-Lago, his private golf club in Palm Beach, and come back to Washington on January 1. The White House has not said publicly why the president is returning early. The Senate is expected to vote to override Mr. Trump's veto of the National Defense Authorization Act on Friday, after the House voted to do so on Monday. If successful, this will be the first — and last — time Congress overturned Mr. Trump's veto, the ninth of his presidency.  The NDAA, which has broad bipartisan support, is a critical defense spending bill which Congress votes on annually and which has been approved each year for several decades. Mr. Trump...
    MADRID (Reuters) - Spain has reached an initial agreement with Britain over Gibraltar's post-Brexit status, Spanish Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said on Thursday. As part of the agreement, the British Overseas Territory located on the southern tip of the Iberian peninsula will remain part of European Union agreements such as the Shengen area, Gonzalez Laya told reporters on Thursday. Madrid and London were negotiating how to police the land border between Spain and Gibraltar which was excluded from the last-minute exit deal reached between Britain and the European Union last week.

    (CNN)This year has upended so much in modern life that even New Year's Eve celebrations tonight will be different, downscaled or canceled due to Covid-19 precautions. From London to Rio de Janeiro, large firework displays have been substituted with special at-home broadcasts. Australian police will conduct spot checks of New Year's Eve parties in New South Wales, while Delhi has installed a curfew to limit celebrations. There are, however, some outliers: Everything is go in Dubai -- with health and safety measures in place. The largely subdued celebrations reflect this devastating year. In the United States, more people have died from Covid-19 in 2020 than were killed in battle in World War II and Vietnam combined. And the outlook remains grim for the first few months of next year. A new forecast projects more than 80,000 could die from the virus in the next three weeks in the US. In...
    ISTANBUL (AP) — A four-day lockdown is set to begin in Turkey at 9 p.m. Thursday — New Year’s Eve — in a bid to stem the spread of COVID-19, and measures against New Year’s gatherings are to be enforced.

The White House released Trump's public schedule late Wednesday for the following day, which stated Trump and the first lady "will be leaving Florida for the White House tomorrow at 11:00AM." The shift in plans means Trump will not be in attendance at the annual New Year's Eve party at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, which guests have already secured tickets for. Trump has attended the annual gathering each of the past three years, typically making brief remarks to guests. Trump's return to Washington comes ahead of Georgia's runoff elections and as he and his allies have continued...

    The Pac-12 occupies a precarious perch on the college basketball landscape as it transitions from non-conference play to league-only matchups this week. The results to date have been just a tad underwhelming: * Winless against AP top-25 opponents (in six games). * Just four victories in 12 games against the ACC, Big East, Big 12, Big Ten and SEC. • An 0-3 mark against the Mountain West. (Okay, so maybe underwhelming wasn’t the best description. Mostly, the results have been awful.) But the most telling data comes from Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted efficiency ratings, which are part of the formula used by the NCAA tournament selection committee. And guess what: The KenPom ratings aren’t all doom-and-gloom for the conference. They do, however, suggest vulnerability. Only one team, No. 17 Oregon, is currently ranked in the top-25, but there are five teams in the No. 26-40 range: No. 28 UCLA No. 31...
    Syracuse University has paused all women’s basketball-related activities Sunday and contact tracing is underway after a positive COVID-19 test was confirmed within the program.

Syracuse’s next scheduled game is Thursday at home against North Carolina. Syracuse men also has been on pause since Monday.

Mississippi also has coronavirus issues within the Rebels’ women’s basketball program. Their game against No. 5 South Carolina on Thursday night has been postponed. The fifth-ranked Gamecocks last played Dec. 17 against Temple. They’re next game is scheduled for Jan. 4 at Alabama. South Carolina...

Why would politicians not want to give people $2000, rather than only $600? It wasn’t their fault, it was China. Give our people the money!” Trump wrote on Friday afternoon. The president, who is spending the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort, refused to sign a $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and government funding bill before leaving Washington on Wednesday. After months of inaction, Congress passed a $900...
    A 20-year-old New York City man who shot a cop twice in the back on Christmas Eve with a pink gun – and failed to breach his bulletproof vest – told reporters he was sorry Friday. William Moss is accused of shooting NYPD Officer Connor Boalick, 27, in the back as he was taking a statement from Moss’ girlfriend. Her mother had called 911 after he allegedly threatened to harm the family, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday night. "Thank God the vest he was wearing protected him, and his partners protected him," de Blasio said, condemning the suspect’s alleged violence on Christmas. Moss, when asked by the New York Post if he had any message for Boalick on Friday, responded: "I’m sorry, officer. I wish it never happened." NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said at a news conference Thursday that Boalick would be OK. One bullet penetrated his vest but not the...
    NORTH WALES, Pa. (CBS) — For some, Christmas Eve is the perfect time to start their holiday shopping while others are just rounding out their lists. Shoppers who waited until the last minute across the region made their final purchases Thursday just hours before Santa Claus arrives in the Philadelphia area. The parking lot of the Montgomery Mall remained crowded as it closed its doors at 5 p.m. Thursday. “Everyone is trying to just get to the stores and buy presents as soon as they can before stuff closes,” one shopper said. It was a mad dash at Airport Square in Montgomeryville as the holiday shopping season finally winds down. “It’s a little crazy,” Ruth Hunsberger, of Harleysville, said. “I was lucky, a couple of people let me go in front of them,” Tyreese Burton said, “I checked out pretty quick.” With time running out, procrastinators had to hustle Thursday....
    By Jennifer Gray and Eric Levenson | CNN A large winter storm that brought blizzard conditions to the Midwest is set to hit much of the East Coast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, bringing snow to parts of the South and heavy rain across the East Coast.
