FBI investigates tip that a woman possibly stole a laptop from Nancy Pelosi’s office to potentially sell it to Russia

By Katelyn Polantz | CNN In a new criminal court case against a woman alleged to have entered the US Capitol on January 6, the FBI noted that a tipster raised the possibility of a laptop being stolen from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office to potentially sell to Russia. There’s no indication a laptop was actually taken from Pelosi’s office.

What Biden can and can’t get from an evenly divided Senate

By ANDREW TAYLOR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — So what does a 50-50 Senate get incoming President Joe Biden?

Supporting freedom isn’t a crime, yet

California Democratic Party chair Rusty Hicks ruined it for everybody. Things were going so well for the Democrats. Big tech companies were banning conservatives from social media.

Major corporations including Marriott cut off political donations to the House Minority Leader and more than 100 lawmakers in the GOP caucus. Yes, it was going well, thi...

Expecting trouble, Washington locks down ahead of inauguration

WASHINGTON — All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing. There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work.
