Mitch McConnell explains why I will still support Donald Trump
Former President Donald Trump has approved Dr. Mehmet Oz to represent Pennsylvania in the US Senate, angering a number of prominent Republicans.
“I have known Dr. Oz for many years, as well as many others, if only through his very successful television show,” Mr Trump said on Saturday. “He has lived with us across the screen and has always been popular, respected and smart.”
The announcement outraged many conservatives, including a previous Trump-backed candidate for the post.
“I have great respect for President Trump,” tweeted Sean Parnell, who dropped out of the race in November. “It simply came to our notice then. Oz is the opposite of everything that made Trump the best president of my life – he is the most distant thing from America in the first place and would be very bad for the PA. “
The US State Department, meanwhile, says Donald Trump and other White House officials have left office without providing a record of gifts they have received from foreign governments.
And while investigators continue to investigate the Capitol riot in 2021, a prominent MAGA activist said he would speak. Ali Alexander, the organizer of several “Stop the Theft” rallies protesting the 2020 elections, will co-operate in the January 6th uprising’s investigation into the Justice Ministry’s uprising, his lawyer said.

Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser to the former president, has secured a $ 2 billion investment from the Saudi heir to the throne despite fears and objections from fund advisers about the deal, according to a New York Times report.
Previously undisclosed documents show that the Saudi prince’s investment screening committee raised objections to the “inexperience” of Mr. Kushner’s newly formed private investment company, Affinity Partners, and fears that the Saudis own “most of the investment and risk ”.
They also found the company’s operations “unsatisfactory in all respects” and noted the proposed asset management fee, which “seems excessive”.
The prince, who headed the board of his public investment fund, dismissed fears on his cover-up panel, the report said.
Speaking about his relationship with the Saudi Public Investment Fund, a spokesman for Mr Kushner’s firm told the Times: “Affinity, like many other leading investment intermediaries, is proud to have PIF and other leading organizations that have careful criteria for screening as investors ”

Liz Cheney says the Jan. 6 commission has enough evidence against Trump
Liz Cheney, deputy chair of the Capitol riot committee, said the House committee had enough evidence to prove criminal charges against Donald Trump in what she called an “uprising.”
“It is absolutely clear that what President Trump is doing, what many people around him are doing, they knew was illegal. They did it anyway, “Ms. Cheney told CNN on Sunday.
She said the commission has not yet decided whether to prosecute Mr Trump at the Justice Department, following reports that the commission has enough evidence.
“I think what we’ve seen is a massive and well-organized and well-planned effort that uses a lot of tools to try to cancel the election,” Ms Cheney said.
She said people involved in planning to obstruct the congressional process “know they will try to use violence to stop the transfer of power.”
“This is the definition of rebellion,” she said.
She said the group had “a huge amount of testimonials and documents that I think demonstrate very, very clearly the degree of planning, organization and purpose.”
