“Republican Governors keep triggering Trump.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican and close ally of President Donald Trump throughout the 2020 election, found himself in the president’s Twitter crosshairs on Monday when he signed off on the state’s election certification. Trump tweeted that Ducey had “betrayed” the people of Arizona by not backing the president’s false assertion that he’d actually won the state that he lost by over 10,000 votes.

“The top scientist in Iran’s nuclear program was assassinated recently.

Iran’s top nuclear scientist, who American and Israeli intelligence have long charged was behind secret programs to design an atomic warhead, was shot and killed in an ambush on Friday as he was traveling in a vehicle in northern Iran, Iranian state media reported.

The scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, believed to be 59, has been considered the driving force behind Iran’s nuclear weapons program for two decades, and continued to work after the main part of the effort was quietly disbanded in the early 2000s, according to American intelligence assessments and Iranian nuclear documents stolen by Israel.

“Moderate Democrat Senator Joe Manchin vows to protect Republican interests and attacks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) questioned the legislative experience of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a leading member of the Democrats’ progressive wing with whom he has clashed over the future of the party.

“I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times in reference to a photo the congresswoman tweeted of her glaring at the moderate during this year’s State of the Union Address. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.

“During a recent interview, Trump Campaign Lawyer Joe diGenova straight up incited violence against former U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs.

A lawyer for President Trump’s reelection campaign said former U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs should be “shot” for rejecting the president’s claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

During an interview on “The Howie Carr Show,” Joe diGenova outlined a number of baseless accusations around the elections, including that “mail-in balloting is inherently corrupt.” He then criticized Krebs, calling him a “class A moron.”

“Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity,” diGenova said. “That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”
