By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Jared Kushner, who was a senior adviser to then-President Donald Trump, plans to write a book about his White House experiences, including his role in negotiating normalization deals between Israel and Arab states, a source familiar with his plans said on Wednesday. The book will focus heavily on the Middle East and the Israeli deals he helped to negotiate with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, known collectively as the Abraham Accords, the source said. It will also address prison reform, trade deals, the U.S. relationship with China ...
In March of this year, Boyd Camper was charged with four federal crimes in relation to his participation in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. This Tuesday, the Department of Justice recommended that he spend two months in jail, NBC4's Scott MacFarlane reports.
According to MacFarlane, the FBI says Camper initially claimed that "several busloads of Antifa members, escorted by State Police, were brought to the Capitol to wreak havoc." But in an earlier TV interview, he declared, "We're going to take this damn place. If you haven't heard it's called the insurrection act and we the people are ready."
"Camper confirmed his presence inside the Capitol Building during a video interview with CBS News that was subsequently posted online," court papers read. "In the video, the interviewer introduced a person on the grounds outside the Capitol building as Boyd Camper from Montana. Wearing a blue jacket and camouflage hat, Camper acknowledged that he was inside of the Capitol."
Although Camper brought his 10-year-old son with him to the Capitol, he left the child outside with a friend when he illegally entered the building on January 6th.

Trump refused to apologize to Meghan McCain for mocking her dad’s war injuries in ‘bizarre’ phone call: new book
Meghan McCain says former President Donald Trump refused to apologize for mocking her father's war injuries — and denied that he had even done so — during a private phone conversation after the 2016 election.
McCain said Trump called her after she posted a tweet in response to a report saying that the former president had been physically mocking her father, the late GOP Sen. John McCain, who walked with a limp because he couldn't fully bend one knee.
The report came more than a year after Trump first attacked John McCain's war record, saying the former Vietnam POW and GOP presidential nominee was "not a war hero ... because he was captured."
"I tweeted, 'This is abhorrent. What more must my family be put through?'" McCain said of her response to the 2016 report, in an interview with the Daily Mail about her new book, "Bad Republican."
"And I got a phone call from like this weird number that I didn't answer, and there was a voicemail that said, 'This is the White House. President Trump would like to speak with Miss McCain,' and I lost my mind,'" McCain said. "'And I called my dad and I said, 'I don't want to call him back. This is scary. I don't want to talk to him.' And my dad said, 'You have to call him. He's the president of the United States. It's not an option. You still respect the office.'"
"I called him (Trump), and we had a very bizarre conversation, and he denied making fun of my dad's war injuries, and he didn't apologize, but he said, 'I didn't do this, this is fake news, this is (a reporter) lying,'" McCain said.
Trump then reportedly made his wife, Melania, get on speaker phone "to help smooth things over," according to the Daily Mail.
"She (Melania Trump) was like, 'We love you, we love your dad,' and I was like, you don't, but okay," Meghan said, calling it the "one and only time'" that the Trumps showed "some awareness" of the "damage" their attacks did to her family.
In her book, McCain reportedly notes that Trump "wouldn't change his tactics either. He would go on to talk about my father over and over again, always in derogatory ways."
"For years he made a sport of beating the crap out of my family, and he didn't let up once he got into the Oval Office," McCain writes. "Trump had supporters boo my father at a rally. He fought the lowering of the flag in my dad's honor when he died."

Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) was formally indicted by the United States Department of Justice on Tuesday, just hours after he revealed the indictment was on its way during a livestream video from his pickup truck.
The indictment alleges that Fortenberry lied to the FBI about illegal campaign contributions from Nigerian-Lebanese billionaire Gilbert Chagoury, although the Nebraska Republican denies the charges.
Specifically, the indictment claims that Fortenberry "knowingly and willfully falsified, concealed, and covered up by trick, scheme, and device material facts" related to the case.
