Published

Two suspects — one male, one female — connected to the mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino were shot and killed during a confrontation with authorities, police said on Wednesday evening.

Footage aired on KNBC-TV showed police surrounding a black SUV that was riddled with gunfire after authorities and the suspects reportedly exchanged fire after being pursued. They were dressed in “assault-style clothing” and armed with assault rifles and handguns at the time of their deaths. One police officer was wounded during the incident but is expected to recover.

Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said a third person was detained after being seen leaving the scene of the clash between the suspects and authorities. However, this person has not been identified as a suspect.

The FBI is also searching through a house in nearby Redlands looking for explosives. Police said an explosive device may have been left in the suspects’ vehicle. Authorities were not willing to call the incident, which resulted in the deaths of 14 people, a terrorist attack.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the shooting may have been precipitated by an argument during a holiday event inside the building. Burguan confirmed that there was a dispute during the party and that one person left and returned, but said it was unclear whether that person was one of the suspects.

Devin Nunes ‘needs a hug’: Impeachment viewers ridicule Republicans as their witnesses’ testimony backfires

Published

Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Micahel Turner (R-OH) complained in the open House Intelligence Committee Tuesday that the hearings were going longer and Democrats were adding time to the 45 minutes they'd reserved for each side to question witnesses.

In past hearings run by Republicans, the questioning was cut significantly short, where Democrats are allowing for as many minutes as needed for both sides. It's unknown why Nunes was so concerned about the time, he claimed that people were turning off their televisions, which is contrary to what has been reported about the ratings for the hearings, which have doubled.

Devin Nunes

At Tuesday's hearing, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Community, flew into a rage over committee rules, complaining that the hearing with witnesses he himself had called was "getting into prime time."

"For everyone watching, this is another example of how out of control this process has become, where the Democrats just magically give themselves additional minutes, which they're right, in the special rule they wrote they can do, but you would at least think they would have the decency to tell us you have 15 minutes more," whined Nunes. "I would say you can go four hours, five hours. We'll give you all you want. You can keep digging. Deeper the hole you dig, the more viewers turn off."

Trump pardoned Edward Gallagher for war crimes — but the Navy is still ousting him from the SEALs: report

The acceptability of committing war crimes while in uniform is putting the U.S. Navy on a collision course with President Donald Trump's White House.

"The Navy SEAL at the center of a high-profile war crimes case has been ordered to appear before Navy leaders Wednesday morning, and is expected to be notified that the Navy intends to oust him from the elite commando force," The New York Times reported Tuesday, citing "two Navy officials."

"The move could put the SEAL commander, Rear Adm. Collin Green, in direct conflict with President Trump, who last week cleared the sailor, Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, of any judicial punishment in the war crimes case. Military leaders opposed that action as well as Mr. Trump’s pardons of two soldiers involved in other murder cases," the newspaper reported.
