    (CNN)The Biden administration is weighing sending military advisers and new equipment including weaponry to Ukraine as Russia builds up forces near the border and US officials prepare allies for the possibility of another Russian invasion, multiple sources familiar with the deliberations tell CNN. The discussions about the proposed lethal aid package are happening as Ukraine has begun to warn publicly that an invasion could happen as soon as January. The package could include new Javelin anti-tank and anti-armor missiles as well as mortars, the sources said. Air defense systems, such as stinger missiles, are also under consideration, and the Defense Department has been pressing for some equipment that would have gone to Afghanistan -- like Mi-17 helicopters -- to instead be sent to Ukraine. The Mi-17 is a Russian helicopter that the US originally purchased to give to the Afghans. The Pentagon is now weighing what to do with them after the US withdrawal from Afghanistan in August. But others in the administration are concerned that sending stingers and helicopters could be seen by Russia as a major escalation. And...

    Getty Scottie Barnes of Florida State The New York Knicks have a lot to decide as the NBA draft nears. With four picks in this year’s draft (Nos. 19, 21, 32 and 58), the Knicks have a good amount of flexibility. They can keep all four picks for themselves and add to their roster that way. Or they can package some or all of their picks in a trade to acquire another team’s player — perhaps Damian Lillard — and/or a higher draft pick. Trading up seems like a likely scenario, and it would give the Knicks a better chance at selecting one of the draft’s better point guards — a position they need to upgrade. If New York can move up high enough in the draft, then there is a chance they could get a playmaker in Florida State’s Scottie Barnes. According to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto, he recently interviewed with the Knicks. In numerous mock drafts — including CBS Sports and Yahoo Sports — Barnes has been projected to be selected by the Oklahoma City Thunder with...

The current place-holder name of the Washington Football Team is included in the choices, as well as some long-rumored options like the Warriors, Redtails and Renegades.

    Caitlyn Jenner is considering a run in California's gubernatorial recall election and is set to meet with GOP political advisors next week on any potential next steps, a source confirmed to CBS News.  The former reality TV star and Olympian is getting guidance from Republican fundraiser Caroline Wren and former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, according to Politico and The New York Times. Politico reported on Thursday that they are set to be at the meeting with Jenner next week at her home in Malibu.  She has also been in contact with Dave Rexrode, executive director of the Republican Governors Association, a Republican source familiar with the talks told CBS News. The RGA does not endorse in primaries.  Her potential entrance in the race comes amid a recall effort against current Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 2.1 million signatures are in the process of being verified now, with just under 1.5 million required to trigger a special recall election sometime in the fall. If the signatures are verified, the ballot will...
    No new jurors were selected Tuesday to be seated in the upcoming trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, but last week’s historic $27 million settlement in the wrongful death suit of George Floyd, could impact the case moving forward. Chauvin's attorney, Eric Nelson, has asked Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill to delay the trial and move it to a new location over concerns the settlement – the largest in Minneapolis history --  could prejudice potential jurors. Cahill said he was concerned about the timing of the settlement with the family of Floyd, who died under the knee of then-police officer Chauvin last summer. DEREK CHAUVIN TRIAL: 7 JURORS TO BE RECALLED FOR QUESTIONING OVER $27M GEORGE FLOYD SETTLEMENT PUBLICITY "The $27 million settlement is unfortunate, it is something to consider, but let's face it, it's not just a legal decision, that's a political decision, and I think people realize that," he said.  He will also consider whether to allow evidence from a 2019 arrest of Floyd into the trial.  In this image taken from a video, defense attorney Eric Nelson,...
    Trump adviser Jason Miller says the former president is not weighing replacing Vice President Mike Pence if he seeks the White House in 2024. In an interview with Mediaite’s The Interview podcast, Miller addressed a Bloomberg News report alleging that Trump is thinking about dumping Pence if he seeks a re-match against President Joe Biden. “I wonder who was pushing this story? Could it maybe be the supporters of Governor Noem?” Miller asked, before clarifying that he was not attempting to “take anything away” from the South Dakota governor, who has seen her political star rise for taking an anti-lockdown approach during the coronavirus pandemic. “I can tell you, as someone who probably speaks with him on the political side as much, if not more than anybody else, never once has there been a conversation internally or in a group about doing something different for the VP position for 2024 if he decides to go that route,” Miller added. “President Trump and Vice President Pence have had a couple of really good conversations since President Trump left office.” Trump and Pence without speaking for...
    Despite reporting to the contrary, one member of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle says there have been no discussions about dumping former Vice President Mike Pence in 2024. Speaking with Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin on this week’s episode of The Interview, Trump adviser Jason Miller suggested surrogates of Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) were behind Bloomberg’s report — which Miller said was incorrect. “I wonder who was pushing this story? Could it maybe be the supporters of Governor Noem?” Miller said facetiously — before stressing that he did not want to “take anything away” from Noem. Miller noted that the former president has “kept his cards pretty close to the vest” vis-a-vis 2024, but insisted that Pence is not currently in danger of getting the hook, and that the former vice president is on good terms with Trump. “I can tell you, as someone who probably speaks with him on the political side as much, if not more than anybody else, never once has there been a conversation internally or in a group about doing something different for the VP position...
    Bradley Cortright February 28, 2021 0 Comments Former President Donald Trump has not publicly said whether he plans on running for president in 2024. But he is apparently not ruling it out either. During his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump argued that President Joe Biden‘s policies in his first month “should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer withering losses in the [2022] midterms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now.” He continued, “But who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time, okay?” “It’s true,” he added.

I may even decide to beat them for a third time, okay?" pic.twitter.com/0tMnejIe12— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) February 28, 2021 The crowd erupted with cheers following his comments. He also ruled out starting a third party, “They kept saying, ‘He’s going to start a brand-new party.’ We have the Republican party. It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before.” “I am not starting a new party. That was fake news,” he added as he said...
    A few years ago the Cleveland Browns would have never been in a position to land a player like J.J. Watt but as it turns out, it might just be the number one choice for the former Houston Texans’ defensive end.  Sources told Cleveland.com on Tuesday that the Browns check off several of Watt’s boxes when it comes to picking his future team, with the biggest draws being a serious Super Bowl contender and money. BUCS GM JASON LICHT HAS EPIC RESPONSE TO DAUGHTER OF LOMBARDI TROPHY DESIGNER SEEKING APOLOGY  Earlier reports indicated that at least a dozen teams were looking at Watt on Friday, shortly after he announced that the Texans "mutually" agreed to grant his request to be released after 10 seasons.  Among the interested teams include the Pittsburgh Steelers, where both of Watt’s brothers play, but the Browns have something that others don’t have -- cap space.  According to the report, Watt was set to make just over $17 million in Houston and will be looking to make around that much in his new contract. The Steelers...

Biden’s troubling double-talk on school openings must’ve set a record Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Marco Rubio are slamming the Biden administration for reportedly considering a domestic travel ban on the state, calling the threat “unconstitutional” and a “political attack” on Floridians. The pair of Republican pols responded to a report by the Miami Herald on Wednesday that the Biden administration was floating a domestic ban allegedly to clamp down on the new highly contagious COVID-19 variants that are racing through the nation, including Florida. “Any attempt to restrict by the federal government would be an attack on our state done purely for political purposes,” DeSantis said at a press conference Thursday. The governor also said the move would be “unconstitutional” — which was echoed by Rubio. “So now that they’re considering actual...
    Top elected officials in Florida are slamming President Joe Biden's administration, following reports that the White House is considering imposing domestic travel restrictions on the state, which has the most reported case of the 'UK variant' coronavirus. 'Any attempt to restrict or lock down Florida by the federal government would be an attack on our state done purely for political purposes,' said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, at a press conference on Thursday. 'I think it's an absurd report that they would be doing that, I think it would be unconstitutional, it would be unwise and it would be unjust,' he said.   Asked about the possible domestic travel ban, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said only: 'No decisions have been made around additional public health measures that would change domestic travel.' 'Any attempt to restrict or lock down Florida by the federal government would be an attack on our state done purely for political purposes,' DeSantis (left) said on Thursday Biden's press secretary said that 'no decisions' have been made on policies that would affect domestic travel.

    Joe Biden's pick for White House press secretary said Sunday morning that the president-elect will not be discussing the investigation into his son Hunter with anyone he is considering nominating as his attorney general. Jen Psaki told 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace: 'He will not be discussing an investigation of his son with any attorney general candidates. He will not be discussing it with anyone he is considering for the role, and he will not be discussing it with the future attorney general.' Currently the two frontrunners for that role appear to be outgoing Alabama Senator Doug Jones and Judge Merrick Garland, who Barack Obama tried appointing to the Supreme Court but was snubbed by a Republican Congress. President Donald Trump is reportedly considering appointing a special counsel to investigate the matter, therefore ensuring the probe does not shut down after he leaves office next month. The report indicates that Trump has explored whether he can name a special counsel himself. It also says Trump has been kicking around names of potential special counsels. Joe Biden's pick for...

    CDC: Over 80 cases traced to Sturgis in Minn. Trump’s last-ditch efforts to overturn results fail to make dent in Biden victory Report: Phillies considering Dodgers assistant GM Jeff Kingston for general manager role The Phillies are considering Dodgers assistant GM Jeff Kingston for their general manager position, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reports (Twitter link). Kingston joins a rather short list of names linked to the Phils’ front office search thus far. Former Marlins GM Michael Hill is also expected to interview for the president of baseball operations position, and the Phillies will make something of a longer-shot appeal to gauge Theo Epstein’s interest in the president role. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (left) talks with assistant general manager Jeff Kingston (center) and manager Dave Roberts.

    The cannabis vote, a bloc largely made up of young people who might not vote otherwise, is still coveted in election season, even in Colorado. Several local ballots (those of Lakewood, Littleton and Broomfield, in particular) will include questions about allowing recreational cannabis sales, and both the presidential and congressional elections will have an impact on the future of federal pot legalization. For the Cannabis Voter Project, though, the plant is just the tip of the iceberg. A nonprofit that informs and registers people who are interested in cannabis issues, the Cannabis Voter Project uses pot legalization to encourage potential voters to take part in all of their democratic duties on election day, not just the weed-related ones. The organization is currently running campaigns in the five states voting on cannabis legalization this year — Arizona (recreational), Mississippi (medical), Montana (recreational), New Jersey (recreational), South Dakota (medical and recreational) — to increase overall turnout at the ballot box.Related Stories Colorado Towns Considering New Marijuana Businesses Loveland Won't Vote on Recreational Marijuana Sales This Year Schools Expect Nearly $500 Million in Pot Tax...
    President Trump on Thursday slammed potential changes to rules for future presidential debates after the first acrimonious clash with Joe Biden this week. “Why would I allow the Debate Commission to change the rules for the second and third Debates when I easily won last time?” Trump wrote on Twitter. The Commission on Presidential Debates, which since 1987 has organized the forums, said Wednesday it’s considering moves to make the two additional debates more orderly. “Last night’s debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues,” the commission said. “The [commission] will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly.” Among the reported possibilities is empowering debate moderators to cut off the microphones of candidates if they interrupt each other or the moderator. Trump recently blasted the commission after he unsuccessfully sought to reschedule a debate with Biden to early September, so voters could tune in before casting mail-in ballots. see also Debate commission considering...
