    Washington (CNN)Newly obtained text messages and recent court filings fill in significant gaps about the key role a little-known Pennsylvania Republican congressman played at almost every turn in scheming to reverse or delay certification of the 2020 election.The texts, which were among those selectively provided by Donald Trump's former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to the House select committee, show Rep. Scott Perry pushing to have the nation's top intelligence official investigate baseless conspiracy theories and working to replace the US acting attorney general with an acolyte willing to do Trump's bidding."From an Intel friend: DNI needs to task NSA to immediately seize and begin looking for international comms related to Dominion," Perry wrote to Meadows on November 12, just five days after the election was called for Joe Biden.In the text, which has not been previously reported, Perry appears to be urging Meadows to get John Ratcliffe, then-Director of National Intelligence, to order the National Security Agency to investigate debunked claims that Dominion voting machines were hacked by China. CNN Exclusive: Mark Meadows 2,319 text messages reveal...
    House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy told fellow GOP lawmakers shortly after the January  6, 2021, Capitol insurrection that he wanted to urge then-President Donald Trump to resign, according to audio posted Thursday night by The New York Times and aired on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show. In the recording of a January 10 House Republican Leadership call, McCarthy is heard discussing the Democratic effort to remove Trump from office and saying he would tell Trump, 'I think it will pass and it would be my recommendation he should resign.' Earlier Thursday, after the Times published its initial story describing the conversation, McCarthy released a statement calling it 'totally false and wrong.'    His spokesman, Mark Bednar, had told the paper, 'McCarthy never said he'd call Trump to say he should resign.' Bednar did not immediately respond to questions late Thursday night after the audio's release. Representatives for Trump also did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the tape. Audio of a phone conversation shows House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had been planning to ask former President Donald Trump to resign in...
    (CNN)Conservative activist Virginia "Ginni" Thomas said in an interview published Monday that although she attended a rally on January 6, 2021, she "played no role" in planning the events that day and that she doesn't involve her husband, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, in the political work she does pushing conservative causes.The rare interview with conservative publication the Washington Free Beacon, comes as progressives and some legal ethics experts see a potential conflict with Thomas' activism and her husband's work on the Supreme Court. They point specifically to a recent January order when the court -- over the dissent of Clarence Thomas -- cleared the way for the release of presidential records from the Trump White House to a congressional committee investigating the US Capitol attack.In recent weeks, media outlets, including CNN, have run stories exploring Ginni Thomas' long term activism and calls for Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse."Federal recusal law says that any justice 'shall disqualify' if their impartiality might reasonably be questioned," said Gabe Roth of Fix the Court, a group seeking more transparency from Supreme Court justices.Read...
    ASTON VILLA could look very different at the end of the transfer window if they manage to lure Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus. Steven Gerrard has already looked to improve his squad through the additions of Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne. 2Aston Villa have already added Lucas Digne and Philippe Coutinho this month 2Villa want Bentancur in a £16million moveCredit: Getty And if Bentancur arrives Gerrard's midfield could look a lot different to the one that played under previous manager Dean Smith. That's because Jacob Ramsey has played a more prominent role under Stevie G, starting nine of Villa's last ten league games. Ramsey's position in the squad could be under threat if Bentancur joins in a £16million move. But Gerrard could decide to drop Douglas Luiz instead to make way for Bentancur, with Ramsey better suited to the box-to-box role. Bentancur operates in defensive midfield and Gerrard likely wants him to play in the middle of Ramsey and John McGinn. His presence would give that pair the freedom to get forward in support of Coutinho and Emi Buendia. LEGEND DEAD...

    LIVERPOOL flop Lorius Karius could be allowed to leave for free in January - putting an end to his Anfield nightmare. The bungling German stopper's contract is up next summer and it's highly unlikely the Reds will be renewing his current deal. 1Loris Karius could end his Liverpool hell in JanuaryCredit: Getty And rather than wait until the season ends, the Kop giants are ready to cut their losses and let Karius go in the New Year, according to The Mirror. The 28-year-old German's Liverpool career has essentially been over since his horror performance in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in 2018. Karius rolled the ball straight on to Karim Benzema's leg for the opener before flapping at Gareth Bale's long-range shot and watching it rebound into the net to make it 3-1. The Reds never recovered from Karius' costly errors and Real went on to lift club football's biggest prize. Karius has not played for the club in the three years since that game. He was on the verge of another loan deal this term with Swiss...
    NEARLY two months into the 2021-22 Premier League season it's become painfully clear which players are surplus to requirements at their current clubs. Donny van de Beek is clearly in desperate need of an Old Trafford exit. 7Donny van de Beek is in desperate need of a move away from Man UtdCredit: Reuters But he's by no means the only player who could use a change of scenery to save his career. SunSport takes a look at SEVEN players who could - and should - quit and move on this winter. DONNY VAN DE BEEK YOU'VE got to wonder just what Van de Beek has done to upset Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Dutchman, 24, moved to Manchester United in a £40million move from Ajax in the summer of 2020, with expectations high after excelling in Holland. Van de Beek has started just FOUR Premier League games in over a year with his frustration growing by the day.

    90 Day Fiances Anny Jokes Robert Is Professional Dad After 7 Kids Are These Wealthy Suburbs Good Targets for Investors? Barcelona appears to be targeting a Premier League star following Lionel Messi's departure from the club this summer.  © News Images The La Liga giants are reportedly interested in making a move for Manchester City's Raheem Sterling when the January transfer window opens, according to Spanish outlet Sport. The report also states Barcelona was close to landing Sterling this summer, but they were unable to complete the signing due to their financial issues.  Barcelona's director of football also reportedly traveled to England to further negotiations for Sterling, which included the possibility of a swap deal with Sergio Roberto, Antoine Griezmann, or Ousmane Dembele. Sterling has fallen out of favor at Manchester City, starting just two games for the Premier League champions this season. However, he remains an essential piece on England's national team. The 26-year-old scored three goals and added an assist at this summer's Euro 2020 tournament.  Barcelona could absolutely use Sterling's scoring prowess after losing Messi this...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) faced a deluge of questions during the press conference in which he announced he is pulling his appointees from January 6 House Select Committee. On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she would veto Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN) from the committee. Both men are vocal supporters Donald Trump, both have amplified the former president’s unsubstantiated claims about the 2020 election, and Pelosi said their involvement with the committee would risk the integrity of its attempt to investigate the storming of the U.S. Capitol. McCarthy and his cohorts retaliated with an angry press conference in which he railed against what he deemed to be a power grab on the Speaker’s part, and said he would revoke his three other picks for the committee unless Pelosi seats all five of them. When the presser opened up for questions, a reporter challenged McCarthy’s claim that the committee is a partisan exercise by noting that he came out against a bipartisan agreement for Jan. 6 investigative commission months ago. “You’re complaining that you don’t...
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged Thursday that content hosted on his platform played a role in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said in January that the company was not responsible for the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol despite significant evidence to the contrary. "Certainly, there was content on our services. From that perspective, there’s further work to do to make our services more effective,” Zuckerberg said in response to a question about the riots during a House hearing Thursday on "Social Media's Role in Promoting Extremism and Misinformation." Democrats and liberals accused Sandberg in January of making false statements and being disingenuous in her denial of Facebook's role in fomenting violence that led to the Capitol attack. Instead, Sandberg blamed the attack on other social media platforms that "don’t have our abilities to stop hate and don’t have our standards and don’t have our transparency.” "This is demonstrably false," Rachel Cohen, communications director for Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, said in January of Sandberg's claims. Cohen cited news articles with evidence of Facebook allowing its users to...
    Stars celebrating milestone birthdays in March 2021 10 Ways To Decide Whether a Job Is Right for You — And Money’s Only One of Them Last year’s surge in rounds of golf played in the United States hasn’t ended, with total rounds in January 2021 up 21.4 percent over the same period of 2020, according to industry reports. © Provided by Golfweek Father and son on golf course Despite losing several months’ worth of rounds in many states as COVID-19 precautions led to courses being temporarily shuttered, 2020 saw an increase of 13.9 percent in total rounds played over 2019, Golf Datatech and the National Golf Foundation have reported. The increases in rounds played have come as players—both new golfers and veteran players—sought quarantine relief in the relatively safe environments of golf courses. The gains in January 2021 over January 2020 were especially noteworthy, as January 2020 was a good month for rounds played before the pandemic took hold. January 2020 saw an 11-percent increase in rounds played over January 2019, so January 2021’s gains are remarkably high. Gallery:...

    Capitol protest tracker: Heres a live look at capitols across the US Poll: Biden wins approval for transition, faces GOP skepticism Kurt Warner says all NFL playoff games should be played indoors after Bills beat Ravens in windy conditions The St. Louis Rams of the late 90s and early 00s were The Greatest Show on Turf. They amassed massive chunks of yardage thanks to an air attack helped greatly by their ability to play all their home games inside a dome. Coupled with the various other domed stadiums around the league, it wasn’t all that often the team had to play outdoors, and perhaps that was a factor in helping them go to two Super Bowls and win one. © Provided by Awful Announcing At the helm of that offense was Kurt Warner, who went on to also take the Arizona Cardinals (playing in a stadium with a retractable roof) to the Super Bowl.

    WOLVES will not be able to sign Hulk because of new Brexit rules, according to reports. The Midlands side have been heavily linked with the Brazilian as a replacement for injured Raul Jimenez - who fractured his skull against Arsenal. 3Wolves will not be able to sign Hulk because of new Brexit rulesCredit: Reuters But new criteria linked to the UK's departure from the EU will see any January move for the 34-year-old scuppered, according to the Athletic. Nuno Espirito Santo's side were reportedly offered the chance to sign Hulk on a free after he said goodbye to Chinese side Shanghai SIPG - where his contract officially expires on December 31.

But the ex-Zenit Saint Petersburg star has never played in any of Europe's top five leagues. And that looks likely to be the insurmountable hurdle which will block any Prem transfer. From January 1 overseas signings must meet criteria based on their international...
