Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sharply criticizes murdered Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in his new book, questioning his journalism credentials and lambasting what he calls the media’s sympathetic coverage of his brutal killing in Saudi Arabia.
“He didn’t deserve to die, but we need to be clear about who he was -- and too many in the media were not,” Pompeo wrote in “Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love.” NBC News obtained a copy of the book in advance of its Jan. 24 release.
Pompeo, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, mocked the media’s portrayal of Khashoggi as “a Saudi Arabian Bob Woodward who was martyred for bravely criticizing the Saudi royal family through his opinion articles in th...
Seven people were killed in two related shootings at a mushroom farm and a trucking firm in a coastal community south of San Francisco on Monday, officials said.
San Mateo County Board of Supervisors President Dave Pine says four people were killed at the farm and three at the trucking business on the outskirts of Half Moon Bay, a city about 30 miles south of San Francisco.
It was not immediately clear how the locations were connected.

With the General Assembly in full swing, the pressure is mounting to get bills drafted and introduced, but it’s unclear if a top priority for Baltimore’s new top prosecutor will get introduced.
On day one in office, Baltimore City State’s Attorney Ivan Bates said his legislative push included evening the sentencing maximums for misdemeanor gun offenses. Bates said if a defendant is between 18 and 20 years of age, the maximum sentence was five years, but for offenders over the age of 21, he said the max penalty was three years.
“The one thing I’ll go down to Annapolis and talk about is let’s raise that from three years to five years,” Bates said during an exclusive interview with FOX45 News hours after being sworn in as state’s attorney.
Former US President Donald Trump is preparing to return to Twitter for his upcoming presidential campaign and ditch his own social media platform Truth Social, Rolling Stone reports.
When Trump first founded Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), he agreed to a “social media exclusivity term” that required him to “first channel any and all social media communications” to his Truth Social account for six hours before posting the content to other platforms, the report said, citing to SEC filings.
But two sources familiar with the matter told Rolling Stone that since late last year, Trump has informed several people close to him that he doesn’t want to re-up the exclusivity agreement with Truth Social.
The 18-month term of that requirement is up ...

Tax season is heading into full swing as tax professionals urge those filing to get it done early this year, to avoid the knock on the door nobody wants.
"The agent knocked on the door. She wasn't there and left that paper there and she ran home to go and get it. Sure enough, it was for 2021 taxes not even like she was behind on her taxes," Jason Upshaw recalled, regarding one of his clients at Belvedere Tax Group.
He says the lesson behind that knock is simple: don't get behind filing this year.
Whether you're an early filer starting now or a late filer waiting until March or April, prepare to receive less in 2022's tax refund.
"The IRS has already warned that refunds will be smaller this year compared to last year," Upshaw said.
But, there are some tax brea...

A majority of voters fault Dr. Anthony Fauci, former chief medical adviser to the president, for mismanaging the government's COVID-19 response — and said Congress should investigate, polling by a conservative grassroots group shows.
In the survey conducted for Convention of States Action by The Trafalgar Group, released Monday, found that 52.2% of voters say the congressional investigation should look into Fauci for "inconsistent testimony about his research leading up to the pandemic" — and his actions managing the outbreak, while 44.5% disagreed.
"Had the COVID-19 pandemic been well-managed, it would have been prudent for Congress to hold hearings to talk about what we learned and what could be done better in the future," Mark Meckler, president of Conv...
New documents filed in federal court reveal why two of the members of Marilyn Mosby's defense team are asking the court to withdraw from the case. Both attorneys say representing Mosby would create a financial hardship and conflict with their schedules.
In one filing, attorney Lucius Outlaw says the schedule for Mosby's trial will conflict with his teaching duties at the Howard University School of Law. In the other filing, attorney Gary Proctor noted that he booked a non-refundable trip to the United Kingdom and that no one consulted him about his availability.
Both attorneys are representing Mosby pro bono.
Proctor also notes that he is one attorney in a two-person law firm that represents clients facing the death penalty, which potentially creates an ethics violat...
The head of House Democrats has submitted Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) to sit on the powerful Intelligence Committee, setting up a battle with Republican leaders who are vowing to keep them off the panel.
Separately, Democrats this week are also expected to seat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, according to a source familiar with the Democrats’ plans, which will likely prompt GOP leaders to hold a floor vote to remove her.
In a letter sent Saturday to Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said Schiff, the top Democrat on the Intelligence panel, and Swalwell are both “eminently qualified” to continue their service on...
A former senior FBI counterintelligence official who spearheaded the Trump-Russia probe was arrested and charged over his own alleged ties to a sanctioned Russian oligarch amid the war in Ukraine.
Charles McGonigal, the former Special Agent in Charge of FBI’s Counterintelligence Division in New York, who retired in 2018, is accused of violating U.S. sanctions by agreeing to provide services to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch.

“Incidents of improper conduct by charedi soldiers in the Netzah Yehuda Battalion are not unusual compared to other battalions. The fact that Netzah Yehuda is being repeatedly condemned – while emphasizing that they are charedi soldiers – indicates that there is an agenda behind this”, said Maj. Gen. (res.) Nadav Padan in a closed meeting on haredi recruitment to the IDF held last Saturday at the Fremont Hotel in Austin, Texas. Major General Padan, who until two and a half years ago served as General of Central Command and currently serves as the National Director of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) in the USA, spoke at the annual conference of the Israeli-American Council (IAC). He was responding to a question from panel moderator, journalist Miri M...
The Arkansas man who propped his feet up on a desk in then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the U.S. Capitol riot was convicted on all counts Monday.
A jury unanimously convicted Richard "Bigo" Barnett on all eight counts in his indictment including felony charges of civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding.
Barnett lounging at a desk in Pelosi's office made him one of the most memorable figures from the riot on Jan. 6, 2021, the day when Congress convened a joint session to certify President Joe Biden's electoral victory.
He is scheduled to be sentenced in May. Prosecutors sought to jail Barnett while he awaits sentencing but the judge denied that request so Barnett will remain free on certain conditions.
Barnett, 62, testified last Thursday he...
Billionaire Jeff Bezos plans to sell the Washington Post in order to purchase the Washington Commanders NFL team, sources told the New York Post.
The speculation surrounding the move comes after a leaked video last month featuring the newspaper’s publisher Fred Ryan speaking of plans for staff layoffs, which were fueled by Bezos last week unexpectedly visiting the newsroom. One of the sources said that Bezos informed the newspaper’s senior staff in a meeting that he had decided to sell the publication.
Commanders owner Dan Snyder reportedly is refusing to sell the team to Bezos while Bezos still owns the Post, due to a series of negative stories the paper wrote about the team’s management.
But several sources told the news outlet that the ...
Even Supreme Court justices should be considered when trying to find the person who leaked the draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade, former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told Newsmax on Monday.
Whitaker appeared on "Wake Up America" and was asked whether one of the high court's liberal judges could have been the leaker.
"Yeah, when I was dealing with leaks at the Department of Justice you always first go to who benefits from the leak," Whitaker told co-host Rob Finnerty. "Who is going to be the person that is motivated to leak this, and I think the investigation should go right to those people and their staff, because ultimately, this was a very damaging leak. It undermined the court in a significant way.
"These leak investigations are very hard, having particip...
