QAnon cultist who abandoned her family is now in a behavioral health center

Over the course of 2021, QAnon cultists have flocked to Dallas, Texas believing that former President John F. Kennedy and his son, will be resurrected from the dead. There was a belief that the younger Kennedy would show up in Dallas on Nov. 2. As packed crowds met in Dealey Plaza, no one showed. The date changed to Nov. 17, but there was still no John-John.

Pardoned Trump ally will only agree to hand over documents if he can testify publicly to Jan 6 committee

Bernie Kerik, a former New York City police chief and friend to Rudy Giuliani, has agreed to hand over documents to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack, but only if they agree to let him testify publicly. The committee wants information about the "command center" that was stationed at the Willard Hotel during the attack, reporter Betsy Woodruff Swan wrote Thursday.

When Kerik was first called his lawyers sent out a letter to the committee saying that he wasn't even there. The problem is that President Donald Trump's campaign gave $225,000 in payments to the firms owned by Kerik and Giuliani. Those funds include more than $50,000 for rooms and suites at the Willard. The committee also cited the book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, which discusses Giuliani's attendance, but doesn't mention Kerik.

Trump biographer details how being elected to the presidency made it hard for him to conduct 'business as usual'

Biographer of former President Donald Trump, David Cay Johnston, wrote in his new book that the kind of business practices in the Trump Org. couldn't exactly happen under the radar if he was the president.

"Maintaining such long-term business relationships required Trump to restrain his grasping instincts," wrote Johnston in The Big Cheat.
