REP. STEPHEN LYNCH: “This is a very recent reversal of your testimony.”CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “Absolutely not, that’s ridiculous.”REP. STEPHEN LYNCH: “You’re ridiculous.”Democrats on Wednesday grilled former Trump officials at a House hearing on the response to the January 6th attack, with members arguing former acting Defense chief Christopher Miller and former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen failed in their capacity to defend the Capitol and the constitution. REP. RAJA KRISHNAMOORTHI: “…Or you just plain froze and were indecisive while people were being injured, killed while hundreds of rioters breached the Capitol and a nation was traumatized.”Miller said he was reticent to deploy troops on that day for fear it would look like a coup, but didn’t own up to any shortcomings on that day. CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “I stand by every decision I made on January 6th and the following days. I want to emphasize that our nation’s armed forces are to be deployed for domestic law enforcement only when all civilian assets are expended and only as the absolute last resort.” But Miller did say that he spoke to the president ahead of January 6th and Trump was interested in a boosted national guard presence, but only to protect his supporters. CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “I had a meeting with President Trump on the 3rd of January concerning some international threats and at the very end, he asked if there were any requests for national guard support and I informed him of Mayor Bowser’s request.” REP. BYRON DONALDS: “Mr. Miller, to clarify that point, did you tell the president about the mayor’s request or did the President Trump ask if there were requests?” CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “He asked if there were requests.” REP. BYRON DONALDS: “What was the President’s response to you in regards to the request by Mayor Bowser?” CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “Fill it and do whatever is necessary to protect demonstrators that were executing their constitutionally protected rights." At issue - why there was a delay in requesting reinforcements as a mob of Trump supporters violently flooded into the Capitol - and whether Trump was involved in that delay. REP. CAROLYN MALONEY: “Did President Trump as the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces call you during the January 6th attack to ensure the Capitol was being secured?” CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “No, I had all the authority I needed from the president to fulfill my constitutional duties.” REP. CAROLYN MALONEY: “Did you speak with President Trump at all as the attack was unfolding?” CHRISTOPHER MILLER: “No, I did not. I didn’t need to, I had the authority I needed and I knew what had to happen.” REP. ANDREW CLYDE: “I can tell you the House floor was never breached and it was not an insurrection.” Meanwhile Republicans downplayed the events of the day, defending President Trump and his supporters - and focused their ire on Democratic lawmakers. REP. CLAY HIGGINS: “Nancy Pelosi, I just don’t know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country… 19 people died from BLM riots last year… and yet we’re gonna discuss today as if none of that happened.” Wednesday's hearing came right after Republican House members stripped Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney of her leadership position for confronting President Trump over his false claims of election fraud -- the very same 'big lie', she said, that fueled the insurrection on January 6th.
Bryant, 41, a retired, 18-time all-star for the National Basketball Association's Los Angeles Lakers, was killed along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and all seven others aboard a helicopter that crashed in foggy weather north of Los Angeles on Jan. 26, 2020. His widow, Vanessa Bryant, sued Los Angeles County following media reports that first responders took pictures of the victims and showed them to other people in situations unrelated to the crash investigation.
“So I think we’re going to go on a wild goose chase.” As lines grew longer at gas stations across the Southeast on Wednesday, Colonial Pipeline announced it began reopening its fuel line six days after a ransomware attack shut down its operations... welcome news to American drivers - worried as gas stations started to run out of fuel as many ignored pleas from officials not to hoard supplies… causing shortages - and panic buying. Tempers flared in Knightdale, North Carolina, when a driver looking for gas allegedly cut in front of another driver. And a shop in Tennessee that usually sells cans of gasoline said it had to stop. “People were coming in and trying to buy you know five and ten cans worth of gasoline - they’re just hoarding it. And that’s the worst thing that can happen.” More than 70% of stations in metro Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina… and Pensacola, Florida… were without gasoline on Wednesday, according to tracking firm GasBuddy. EPA Administrator Michael Reagan is pleading with drivers to only get what they need. “I think the folks should follow the advice of the governors and the attorney generals, which they're asking folks not to panic, not to hoard gasoline... We have some really good coordinated efforts at the federal, state and local levels. And we're working very hard to alleviate these circumstances.” Chris Decker, professor of economics at the University of Nebraska Omaha says panic-buying can become a vicious cycle. "Because one of the worst things you can do during a lot of news events of shortages is engage in panic-buying. We saw that last year with things like toilet paper and sanitizer. Well, that will lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy. You will see those stock outages as a consequence of that elevated demand as people try to stockpile.” Sources familiar with the Colonial's response told Reuters the company does not plan to pay the ransom demanded by the hackers who encrypted its data. Since the pipeline shutdown and the panic buying began, the American Automobile Association said the average national gasoline price rose to above $3 per gallon… the highest since October 2014…

Japanese nurse Arisa Tsubata has trained around her work shifts for over a year to prepare for a final Olympic boxing qualifier in the hope of making it to the Tokyo Games this summer. That dream was shattered after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) cancelled the boxing qualifier due to take place in June and said it would allocate spots to athletes based on their world rankings in recent years. The change in criteria has effectively shut the door on many Olympic hopefuls such as Tsubata, whose rankings are not good enough to earn them an automatic qualification for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
