Sen. Josh Hawley: FBI has been ‘weaponized’ in modern politics

Missouri senator Josh Hawley reacted to the latest updates following the FBI’s raid of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

SEN. JOSH HAWLEY: I’d like to know what it was they were looking for in the first place. I mean, this is what Garland owes the American people – an explanation. And frankly, so does Joe Biden. Because I don’t believe for a minute, not for a minute, that the White House was totally in the dark on this. This is Joe Biden’s FBI. It is Joe Biden’s DOJ. 

FBI RAID ON MAR-A-LAGO COULD BOOST TRUMP’S 2024 WHITE HOUSE RUN, SAY STRATEGISTS

And they have weaponized this FBI at every turn. They sent it after parents and called them domestic terrorists. This is an administration that tried to set up a disinformation board to police the speech of Americans who questioned the vaccine, who had questions about masks. This is an administration that is totally, totally out of control. And I tell you, it will take a long time to repair the basic constitutional norms and democratic norms here that this administration is trampling.

What this makes clear to me above all, is that though our constitutional framework of government is strong, and I believe that, we have deep, deep corruption in our government. Deep corruption. We’re going to have to make it a focus to root it out.

Dartmouth graduate dies hours after college graduation in ‘horrible accident’ near bridge: officials


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

A New Hampshire college graduate was pronounced dead on Sunday after a “horrible accident” took place near a bridge by the Dartmouth College campus just hours after his graduation ceremony.

David Gallagher, 24, a 2020 graduate of Dartmouth College, was found by police officers on an embankment around the Ledyard Bridge in Hanover, New Hampshire, on early Sunday morning. Hanover Police Lieutenant Michael G. Schibuola called the death a “horrible accident” and said that alcohol might have been involved, according to the Boston Globe.

“We are not sure exactly sure how he sustained his injuries that led to his demise. We are investigating. We don’t anticipate any criminal charges,” Schibuola said.

His friends called 911 after Gallagher was seriously injured, according to the report.

The incident took place just hours after the university held a make-up-commencement ceremony on Aug. 6 for graduates from the class of 2020 whose graduation ceremony was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which Gallagher attended.

A friend of Gallagher’s told police that the 24-year-old did not participate in an activity dubbed the “Ledyard Challenge,” where students run across the bridge into Vermont while streaking, then swim back to Hanover, New Hampshire, according to the report.

According to the Associated Press, a Dartmouth student died in 2005 while participating in the challenge.

Hanover police Capt. James Martin described the area where Gallagher was found as “often inaccessible to walk in on foot from the roadway from Hanover” and “very rocky, steep terrain,” according to WMUR.

Gallagher was on the college’s lacrosse team, which tweeted that he attended the graduation celebration for the class of 2020 on Sunday.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our Dartmouth men’s lacrosse brother, David Gallagher ‘20. He passed away Sunday, a day after attending the commencement celebration for the Class of 2020,” the team tweeted. “Dave was a terrific team member from the West Chester area of Philadelphia. He brought many great characteristics and values to the program. He was tough, worked hard on the field and in the classroom, had high character and a positive attitude.”

Dartmouth College spokeswoman Diana Lawrence said in a comment to Boston.com that their community is saddened by Gallagher’s death.

DeSantis is a ‘wannabe dictator,’ ‘undermining’ democracy, says suspended Florida attorney


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Suspended Florida state attorney Andrew Warren suggested that Gov. Ron DeSantis could be a threat to democracy while appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday.

Warren was previously suspended from his position by DeSantis on Thursday after he refused to prosecute cases that ran afoul of the state’s abortion and child sex change laws. While he has previously referred to the state’s abortion laws as “unconstitutional” and vowed to uphold the “right to privacy,” the former state attorney insisted that this was a “war” on his free speech. 

“I mean, let’s look at what he did,” Warren said about DeSantis. “He’s waging a war on free speech, and it doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican or neither, everybody should be outraged, and everybody should be worried, too. Think about the groups that DeSantis has already attacked for speaking out against him. First it was businesses, then teachers, now public servants? Who is next? I mean, the governor likes to brag about the so-called free state of Florida, but it sure doesn’t feel very free to a lot of us.”

He reiterated that he plans to fight his suspension, claiming that his suspension has greater ramifications for both Republicans and Democrats.

DESANTIS TO HIT CAMPAIGN TRAIL TO RALLY SUPPORT FOR TRUMP-ENDORSED CANDIDATES: ‘UNITE AND WIN’ 

“Because they know that this is a fight for democracy, a fight to preserve the integrity of our elections, a fight for free speech, to make sure that we have the freedoms in Florida and are not subject to the tyrannical rule of a wannabe dictator,” Warren said.

Though guest host Jonathan Lemire called his claims “certainly strong words,” Warren doubled down and said DeSantis is violating democracy to further his presidential ambitions.

“Well, it is just a blatant abuse of power. And he is abusing his power to further his own political ambitions, because he has this obsession with running for president, to out-Trumping Trump or both, but he’s abusing his power in a way to violate the most fundamental sacred aspect of our democracy, the fact that people’s vote matters, that the people get to elect their elected officials. I mean—even my 8-year-old understands that. That’s how democracy works,” Warren said.

BILL MAHER SUGGESTS DESANTIS COULD BEAT TRUMP IN 2024 GOP PRIMARY ‘HE’S GOT MORE THAN A SHOT’

He closed, “So, what DeSantis is doing here is undermining the fabric and the framework of our democracy.”

In an op-ed for the Miami Herald, Warren similarly blasted DeSantis’ decision as an abuse of power for political gain.

DeSantis has dodged questions as to whether he plans to support Donald Trump in 2024 if he were the presidential nomination.

He wrote, “DeSantis suspended me for no greater cause than blind political ambition. The governor’s illegal action is unwarranted and unconstitutional, it is a blatant abuse of power by a Republican governor, intent on governor intent on gaining national attention from the most extreme members of his own party as he looks to run for president in 2024. For DeSantis this is all political theater—let’s look tough and kick out of office a prosecutor who is a Democrat and who has embraced effective criminal justice policies he doesn’t like.”

Miami OnlyFans model charged with boyfriend’s murder after bloody fight ruled self-defense


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

A Florida OnlyFans model accused of stabbing her boyfriend months ago has been criminally charged, according to Miami-Dade State’s Attorney Kathy Rundle. 

Courtney Clenney, a 25-year-old known online as Courtney Tailor, was spotted covered in blood on the balcony of her luxury Miami high rise on Sunday, April 3, after police said she stabbed her 27-year-old boyfriend, Christian “Toby” Obumseli, once in the chest.

No charges were filed at the time after police characterized the slaying as self-defense.

But Rundle’s office opened a review of the case that lasted nearly fourth months.

The sealed arrest warrant on a second-degree murder charge is expected to be made public Thursday, according to Rundle’s office.

Police arrested Clenney in Hawaii Wednesday, according to her attorney, Frank Prieto.

“We are completely shocked at Courtney’s arrest based upon the clear evidence of self-defense in this matter. Obumseli attacked her and choked her that evening; Courtney had no choice but to meet force with force,” her attorney, Frank Prieto, told Fox News Digital Wednesday. “Further, we are disappointed that the State Attorney sought an arrest warrant in this matter; we have cooperated with the investigation from the beginning with both the State and the City of Miami Police Department.”

He said his client had “always offered to self-surrender” if charges were to be filed and that she maintains the stabbing came in self-defense in response to domestic abuse.

A heavily redacted police report states officers arrived at the couple’s home around 5 p.m. in response to an aggravated battery call. They met a front desk supervisor who brought them up to the apartment, where police found Obumseli with a single stab wound to the torso.

The initial decision not to charge Clenney outraged Obsumseli’s family.

“Although the family is still mourning the untimely death of Mr. Obumseli, we believe that once a full investigation is done Ms. Clenney will be held to account for taking the life of Mr. Obumseli,” their attorney, Larry Handfield, predicted at the time.

FLORIDA MAN DEAD, MODEL LOVER FOUND SOAKED IN BLOOD

Obumseli’s brother, Jeffrey Obumseli, also argued that Clenney had not suffered any injuries in the altercation that would have justified her claim of self-defense.

“The bottom line is inextricably clear: Courtney is being treated differently because of her privilege as a wealthy White woman,” Jeffrey Obumseli wrote on Instagram. “Within 24 hours following Toby’s death, the detective on the case prematurely concluded this was not a crime of violence.”

Frank Prieto, Clenney’s defense attorney, has said his client killed Obumseli in self-defense and that he was “mentally, emotionally and physically abusive with Courtney.”

“That tragic night, there was a physical altercation, and Courtney had no choice but to defend herself,” he told Fox News Digital days after the slaying.

A law enforcement source told Fox News Digital that Clenney was taken to a hospital under the Baker Act for a mental health evaluation after the incident. Under the law, details about such hospitalizations are confidential.

She was staying at a facility in Hawaii that treats PTSD related to the April incident when police arrested her on the Miami murder warrant, Prieto said Wednesday. 

“It is an absolute injustice to charge a victim of domestic violence and human trafficking with a crime,” he added. “Courtney was clearly defending herself.  We will vigorously defend Courtney and clear her of this unfounded and baseless charge. “

Kiely Rodni: California authorities seeking anyone who saw teen leave party five days after disappearance


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

California authorities have still not found anyone who witnessed Kiely Rodni leaving a Tahoe National Forest campground just after midnight on Aug. 6, police said Wednesday afternoon on day five of the search for the missing 16-year-old, who may have been abducted.

“We continue to investigate every lead that comes to us,” said Angela Musallam, spokesperson for the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. “We continue to exhaust any lead.”

During a joint news briefing Wednesday afternoon, police from multiple agencies pleaded with more attendees to come forward. They said they had received a large amount of video from the party, which stretched from Friday night into the early hours of Saturday. But they’d found no clues that have led them to Rodni’s whereabouts.

Investigators from multiple agencies in Northern California and Nevada kicked off the search effort early Wednesday as dive teams entered the Prosser Creek Reservoir, searching near the shoreline for signs of Rodni or her silver Honda CRV, which is also missing.

“The only solid evidence” police have come up with so far is a surveillance image showing Rodni in a local business roughly six hours before she vanished, authorities said. Extensive searches have found no sign of her or her car.

Police said she last spoke with friends and family shortly after midnight on Aug. 6 and that her phone was turned off around 12:33 a.m. It last pinged near the Prosser family Campground within Tahoe National Forest in Truckee, California, at the site of a high school graduation party involving more than 100 teens and young adults from several surrounding communities – and a few from as far away as San Francisco.

In a joint statement, the Placer County and Nevada County Sheriff’s Office said they had assigned 265 personnel to the case. The number of tips received has climbed to more than 300, tripling Tuesday’s total. However, authorities were still trying to find someone who witnessed Rodni leaving the party before she disappeared.

Police said they suspect there were drugs and alcohol present at the gathering, but are pleading with attendees to come forward with any information about possible Rodni sightings, promising not to punish anyone for partying.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office shared a surveillance image that showed Rodni’s outfit on the night she went missing.

Authorities are now saying she was last seen wearing a “black spaghetti strap bodysuit” under green Dickies pants, as opposed to a black tank top initially reported. She was also wearing a black grommet belt and black Vans sneakers.

As of Wednesday afternoon, investigators say they have still not recovered any items they believe belong to Kiely.

The search effort, which involves hundreds of law enforcement officers and volunteers, has expanded beyond the immediate area of the party, stretching for miles in a wider radius.

Police released these photos of a Lana Del Ray hooded sweatshirt they say Kiely Rodni may have had in her possession when she went missing on Aug. 6.

Days of aerial searches involving planes and helicopters have uncovered no signs of a crash, Musallam said. Investigators are looking into the disappearance as a possible abduction, but they have stopped short of issuing an Amber Alert, which requires “confirmation” that a juvenile has been taken.

Kiely Rodni's SUV is also missing – a silver 2013 Honda CRV with California license plate 8YUR127. It has a small ram-head sticker on the back window, under her rear wiper blade.

Potato harvesting: How to know when to unearth your homegrown spuds


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

It’s time to dig up your potatoes! Or so you think.

There’s a fine line when it comes to completing your potato harvest, according to garden columnist Jessica Damiano.

The expert wrote in an Associated Press piece that our senses can’t help us — as they can with other vegetables and fruits — when it comes to deciphering whether or not potatoes are good to go.

FRUIT OR VEGETABLE? TAKE THIS QUIZ TO TEST YOUR HEALTHY FOOD KNOWLEDGE

Pulling up potatoes too soon can leave plant parents with measly tubers — and can put the plant’s root system at risk of permanent stress, she indicated.

Meanwhile, your potatoes could get frost damage if you wait too long — and can also begin to split, sprout or rot underground, Damiano said.

Gardening expert and host of the Magnolia Workshops course “Starting a Home Garden” Kevin Espiritu told Fox News Digital this week that most spring-planted potatoes should be ready for harvest between July and October.

Harvesting timing is largely dependent on region, he explained, since hot southern states can harvest in the off season, from January to July, while California can grow two separate crops.

GARDENING 101: GROW YOUR OWN FOOD AS INFLATION MAINTAINS A HISTORIC HIGH

Northeastern regions have typical harvest dates from August through early October, while northwestern states can see early harvests in July due to early planting.

Most early-season potato varieties will take 75 to 90 days to fully mature, Espiritu added. Late-season potatoes can take 120 to 135 days.

To find the harvesting “sweet spot,” Damiano shared that the first step is to examine the part of the plant that’s above ground.

When at least half of the leaves have turned yellow — which will occur between 60 and 120 days from planting, depending on potato type and weather — hold off on watering.

EAT THESE 5 POWER FOODS TO HELP PREVENT CANCER

Espiritu directed gardeners to slow down their watering once the plants flower. This will allow tubers to harden and improve storage life later.

An optional next step, especially in wet climates, is to cut the plants to soil level, which Damiano said will aid in tuber maturation.

Regardless, potatoes will be ready to harvest two weeks after pulling back on watering or once the plant completely dies back.

If you’re still unsure about timing, Damiano suggested testing your potatoes’ readiness by digging beside a sample plant and pulling up a potato from the external portion of the root system.

Rub the potato with your finger: If the skin stays intact, it’s mature. 

HOW GARDENERS CAN CONTROL PESTS, PROTECT POLLINATORS

If the skin rubs off, your potatoes need a little more time. 

Refill the hole and give it another week before checking again.

When it’s finally time to unearth your spuds, Damiano advised using a digging or spading fork instead of a spade or shovel to prevent accidental potato piercing.

Insert your tool of choice six to 12 inches from the plant’s perimeter and begin digging, rocking back and forth to lift the roots.

Work your way in a circle around each plant as you continue pulling up and popping out potatoes.

Sift through the soil after each plant is pulled up to ensure that no potato was left behind.

STATE FLOWER QUIZ! CAN YOU MATCH THESE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS WITH THEIR CORRECT STATES?

Even though some potatoes can be eaten right away, most potatoes need some time alone, above ground, to stiffen, thicken their skin and heal.

To extend shelf life, Damiano instructed gardeners to place potatoes on newspaper or cardboard and store them in a dark, cool room to cure for two weeks.

Storing your potatoes in a cool, dark place like a cellar could give them a life expectancy of six to eight months, Damiano said.

Avoid refrigerating and use bruised or damaged potatoes first, since those won’t keep as well.

If you’re growing new potatoes, they can be harvested earlier in the season once plants begin to flower and vines look wilted.

True new potatoes are young, thin-skinned tubers that don’t cure or store well, so they should be consumed immediately, said Damiano.

Meanwhile, the vines on larger potato plants should be completely dead before digging, said Espiritu.

Kevin Durant wants to play for Celtics or 76ers: report

Kevin Durant has named the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers as “desired landing spots,” sources told SNY.

Durant requested a trade back in June, and recently gave Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai the ultimatum of either trading him or firing the duo of head coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks.

The 33-year-old reportedly wants to play with Marcus Smart if he were to wind up in Boston — however, the Nets want at least Smart and Jaylen Brown if a trade were to go down, according to The Athletic.

Durant had previously sought out the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat as possible trade destinations, while the Toronto Raptors, Golden State Warriors, and Los Angeles Lakers have also kept tabs on the superstar.

SNY also notes that the feeling of a Nets-76ers trade is well-received in the Philadelphia front office, as “high-ranking members” of the Sixers strongly want to engage on trade talks for the two-time NBA champion.

The Nets seem to be looking for a package of young NBA players as well as picks, and they want to field a legitimate playoff contender if they do indeed trade Durant.

Jesse Watters rips FBI over Trump Mar-a-Lago raid

Fox News host Jesse Watters calls out the FBI over the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on “Jesse Watters Primetime.” 

JESSE WATTERS: The president and attorney general have now gone into hiding after the raid on the home of President Trump blew up in their face. For two days they’ve ignored every question about this political invasion. Biden fled D.C. this afternoon on Air Force One, taking Hunter with them on another vacation and Merrick Garland, no one knows where he is. 

TRUMP FBI RAID: GARLAND’S DOJ FACES GROWING PRESSURE TO RELEASE INFORMATION ON UNPRECEDENTED SEARCH 

He can’t be found and now the FBI is doing what it does best. It’s leaking and lying and trying to clean it all up. The bureau told Newsweek they had undercovers inside Mar-a-Lago. The FBI had a mole at Mar-a-Lago. Newsweek says, “The raid on Mar-a-Lago was based largely on information from an FBI confidential human source, one who was able to identify what classified documents former President Trump was still hiding and even the location of those documents.”

Ellen DeGeneres sends well-wishes to ex Anne Heche as actress remains in coma following car crash


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Ellen DeGeneres addressed ex-girlfriend Anne Heche’s health amid the car collision last week in Los Angeles where the actress was pulled out of her vehicle after it erupted in flames upon crashing into a home, and is still currently in a coma in the hospital. 

The former talk show host, 64, asked if she had spoken to Heche since the incident on Friday, to which Ellen responded: “No, have not. We’re not in touch with each other, so I wouldn’t know.” 

When asked if she wanted to send the “Six Days Seven Nights” actress any “well-wishes,” DeGeneres simply stated “sure” as she walked to her convertible. “I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”

Heche, 53, is currently in “extreme critical condition” at a hospital in Los Angeles following the collision in Mar Vista, which also destroyed a house and displaced a woman and her dogs.

“She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention,” Heche’s rep said. “She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Heche suffered a public breakdown hours after the three-year relationship with the comedian ended in 2000, and she was found at a stranger’s home in Cantua Creek, Fresno County, after parking her car on a highway and wandering through the desert.

Authorities responded to the home of the concerned resident and Heche, known for roles in “Another World” and “The Juror” among other projects, was taken to a hospital after officials on scene determined there was a serious medical issue.

“She proceeded to tell me that she was God and was going to take everyone back to heaven with her in some sort of spaceship,” one Fresno deputy wrote in a report at the time.

One year later, Heche admitted to Larry King that she had taken a “hit of ecstasy” when she got out of her car, adding: “I was so far gone by that point, you know, by the time I took the pill, I was waiting for my spaceship.”

She told Page Six last year that the failed relationship not only blacklisted her from Hollywood, it also “canceled” her from the entertainment industry for a decade.

“I didn’t do a studio picture for 10 years,” she said of the fallout. “I was fired from a $10 million picture deal and did not see the light of day in a studio picture.”

Prior to the blaze, witnesses in the residential community told TMZ that they tried to help the actress out of her car before she hit a garage door, reversed her vehicle out of a parking lot and fled the scene. Minutes later, the “Donnie Brasco” star crashed her car into a house and ignited a fire that engulfed the home.

The results of the blood test are pending, and the investigation is ongoing. Los Angeles Police Department officials confirmed that if Heche is found to have been intoxicated during the crash, she will be charged with a DUI hit-and-run.

Lynne Bernstein, a witness of the incident, detailed the crash as “horrific” and said he could “hardly breathe” when trying to assist Heche out of the blue Mini Cooper she was driving.

“The smoke was just getting way too intense, we could hardly breathe,” Bernstein said. “The smoke was making it difficult to see.”

Heche sustained burn injuries and was “conscious and breathing” when she was removed from the vehicle and placed on a stretcher, before abruptly sitting up as authorities rushed her to an ambulance in video footage from the scene of the incident.

The crash “scared the entire neighborhood,” Yaroslav Borets told Fox News Digital. “Something we will remember for a longtime.”

The owner of the house Heche crashed into was home at the time and “very narrowly escaped physical harm” after the fire began. Lynne Mishele’s neighbors created a GoFundMe campaign that raised $45,000 in one day.

The 26-year-old sat out the entire 2021 season amid sexual conduct allegations against him, which he is currently suspended six games for. However, that suspension could be longer. 

The NFL is currently appealing the suspension, as it was made by an independent disciplinary officer. 

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said last week that the Browns are preparing for different scenarios for their quarterback position, but they are also getting Watson in game shape in training camp.

ROGER GOODELL DEFENDS DESHAUN WATSON SUSPENSION APPEAL, CITES EVIDENCE OF ‘PREDATORY BEHAVIOR’

“We’ll let that play out, but we’ve got to get Deshaun ready to play,’’ Stefanski said before Day 8 of Browns training camp, according to Cleveland.com. “He hasn’t played football in a year. We’ve got to get Jacoby (Brissett) ready to play. He’s potentially going to be playing early for us and starting, and we’re going to be counting on him.”

When Watson last played in 2020, he led the NFL with 4,823 passing yards. In his four seasons (54 games), he’s amassed 14,539 passing yards, a 67.8 completion percentage and 104 touchdowns against 36 interceptions.
