WATCH: House falls into the river as Oklahoma flood waters rise

Published

on

Torrential rains, thunderstorms and tornados struck Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas Monday, but the rains in Oklahoma caused the North Canadian River to crest in parts of El Reno. But it was the Cimarron River that took out one family’s home.

As the rushing waters of the Cimarron chipped away at the banks, the house slowly fell into the river along with the red dirt. It then began to float away, KOCO reported.

“Residents living along the Cimarron River in Logan County were preparing to evacuate Wednesday due to flooding,” reported KOCO News in Oklahoma City.

Tornadoes are already touching down in north-central and east-central Oklahoma as storms continue to battle the Sooner State.

Other homes were hanging off the edge and at risk of falling into the river, KOCO reported, but none yet have fallen. With additional rains, these residents could lose their homes as well.

While Oklahoma is a red state that voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump, he has yet to announce a national disaster emergency or sent FEMA to the state for help.

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.

Ex-counterintel official explains how lobbying laws could bring down Rudy Giuliani

Published

On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," former Justice Department counterintelligence official David Laufman explained to Chris Cuomo how President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani could go down for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

"Why does this matter, this area of the law?" asked Cuomo.

"This was a statute enacted in the 1930s in response to pro-Nazi German elements of the United States, engaged in subversive propaganda activities so that the U.S. people or lawmakers when confronted with content, whether lobbying or an op-ed, can make an informed assessment based on who the real party is behind it," explained Laufman. "If it's a foreign party, the American people should be able to take that into account and assigning whatever weight they want."

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow detailed the way that President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and his two recently-arrested business associates are now linked to an oligarch in Ukraine.

In an NBC News report earlier Wednesday, it was revealed that Giuliani's associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were doing work with oligarch Dmytro Firtash.

The report revealed that Firtash was involved in getting partners for an oil and gas company while also helping with the effort to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
