Trump news – live: Iran vows ‘revenge’ in Mar-a-Lago drone strike video as Kyrsten Sinema …

Fox News host says Trump must ‘learn to lose’

The House select committee investigating the 6 January insurrection has requested “voluntary cooperation” from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy to provide information about his conversations with former president Donald Trump during the worst attack on the Capitol since 1814.

However, McCarthy has refused to cooperate with the committee, citing the “illegitimate” investigation by the panel, in a statement hours after the request.

Liz Cheney, one of the panel’s only two Republicans, said her party’s House leader is attempting to “cover up” what happened on 6 January 2021 and that the committee would evaluate other options for obtaining his testimony. “I wish that he were a brave and honorable man,” she told CNN.

This came after Trump grabbed headlines for hanging up on an NPR journalist who challenged him with questions about the Capitol insurrection and his fixation on non-existent election fraud in 2020. He also drew attention with an interview in which he poured scorn on Republicans who refuse to say whether or not they have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Watch: Iran creates a bizarre video showing a CGI Trump targeted for drone strike while playing golf in Florida

A CGI animation threatening to assassinate Donald Trump by drone strike has reportedly been released by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

Titled “Revenge is inevitable”, the video threatening retaliation for the 2020 killing of Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani was released by Iran’s Supreme leader, according to Iranian Americans for Liberty activist group.

The video shows a drone targeting Trump while he’s playing golf in Palm Beach at “Florida-Trump’s House”, in an apparent reference to Mar-a-Lago.

As the drone targets Trump’s back, a member of the group receives a text message saying “Soleimani’s murderer and the one who gave the order will pay the price”.

Sen Kyrsten Sinema ripped apart Democratic voters’ hopes of seeing changes to the filibuster that would allow voting rights legislation to pass in a speech on Thursday that reiterated her support for both the legislation itself and the 60-vote threshold that is keeping its passage an impossibility.

In a floor speech, the Arizona Democrat portrayed the Senate’s rule allowing members to block debate on legislation with a 41-vote minority as a necessary tool for safeguarding democracy in a time of unprecedented political divisions.

“I strongly support, and will continue to vote for legislative responses to these state laws,” said the senator.

But, she added: “I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division infecting our country.”

Sinema slams Democrat leadership, says their mandate is to work with GOP

Krysten Sinema is slamming the division between the Democrats and Republicans, saying they have to find common ground or the division in the country will get worse.

“Our mandate, it seems evident to me, work together and get stuff done,” Ms Sinema said. “When a party in control pushes party line changes exceeding their electoral mandate, the bitterness in our politics is exacerbated. “

“I wish there had been a more serious effort on the part of Democratic party leaders to sit down with the other party and genially discuss how to reforge common ground,” she added.

Democrat scolded for criticizing Biden’s ‘stark’ speech that went ‘a little too far’

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin told CNN that the president’s language is “stark, and I will concede that point” on his speech on voting rights.

“Perhaps the president went a little too far in his rhetoric, some of us do, but the fundamental principles and values at stake are very similar,” he added.

McCarthy swerves question on Trump conversations

A reporter asks Mr McCarthy if the American public has a right to know the content of his conversations with the president during the insurrection; he replies that there is “nothing in that realm” that he can provide to the committee that would help its work. Again, he claims that the panel are simply “playing politics” by seeking his testimony on such matters.
