It seems that the problems of the second round stimulus check have been narrowed down, but the terms of it are still in the air.

Despite the election being less than two weeks away, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and White House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say it just hasn’t happened yet. Between the two White House officials, it’s unsure who is to blame since their pointing fingers at one another and accusing each other of changing the stimulus’ demand that is now at the $1.9 trillion mark, NewJersey.com reports.

“We have continued to make offer after offer after offer,” Meadows said. “And Nancy continues to move the goalposts.”

“Same thing, they keep moving the goalposts,” Pelosi said on CNN. “Every time they say we move the goalposts, that means they’re projecting what they did.” The house speaker hasn’t totally ruled out the possibility of a second stimulus before Election Day either. “I will never give up hope,” she said. “I’m optimistic. We put pen to paper and had been writing the bill, based on what we hope will be the outcome, what they said they would get back to us on.”

As for now, she is on stand by, awaiting a response from the other side. “I sent over on Friday the list of the concerns that we still had about it,” she said. “What is the answer? And my understanding is, he will be reviewing that over the weekend, and we will have some answers on Monday.”

It seems that the debate is over state and local aid and where the $75 billion aid to fight the pandemic will actually go, the news publication stated.

“We all want an agreement. Nobody wants it more than the House Democrats,” Pelosi said. “We represent these people. We have been fighting for food for the hungry, rent assistance for those who may be evicted. But, most importantly, we really have to stop the spread of the virus.”

From the Democrat side, the stimulus will provide citizens another $1,200, additional small business loan funds, as well as unemployment funds. But it’s the Republican Party who don’t want to go over a budget of $500 billion. Apparently, the party wants their priorities included in the next round.

“Senate Democrats had the opportunity to send relief to the American people this last week, and they didn’t do it,” Meadows said. “That should be a headline.”

A woman turned her ex-boyfriend into the FBI for storming the Capitol after he called her a “moron” via text message.

Richard Michetti may have gotten away with his role in the violent Capitol riot had he been a little nicer to his ex-girlfriend. Now, the Pennsylvania man is one of over 200 citizens facing charges for the January 6th riot.

In the arrest warrant, Michetti was arguing with his ex-girlfriend soon after the failed siege. The argument stemmed from him sending photos and videos from the riot to his ex, who remains unnamed. In the messages, Michetti insisted that the 2020 election had been rigged in favor of Joe Biden.

“If you can’t see the election was stolen you’re a moron,” Michetti wrote in the message.

The next day, the woman contacted federal authorities.

Also included in the arrest warrant are photos depicting the Trump supporter both inside and outside the Capitol on January 6th, as well as a hotel receipt confirming he was in Washington, D.C. on that day.

“We stormed the building, they held us back with spray and teargas and paintballs,” he confessed in one text.

Michetti was arraigned in court on Tuesday. His charges include knowingly entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and obstruction of Congress.

Chilling video captures the moment Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot (Video)

Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment when a dog walker for pop singer Lady Gaga was shot and two of her French bulldogs stolen.

The dog walker, identified by WENN.com Ryan Fischer, 30, was caring for the singer’s beloved dogs while she is away in Rome, Italy.

The video, obtained by TMZ, shows a man walking three dogs on a sidewalk late Wednesday night.

Then a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima or Sentra, pulled up alongside him and two men exited the backseat.

One suspect is heard yelling “You know what this is!” and “Give it up!” as Fischer screamed for help.

One of the dogs escaped while Fischer fought with the suspects who grabbed the other two dogs. One of the thugs shot Fischer in the chest before the suspects sped away with the two dogs.

Fischer fell to the ground, screaming “Help me! I’ve been shot!”

Police confirmed the dog walker was shot once in the chest — not four times as was previously reported.

Lady Gaga’s team confirmed to PEOPLE that Gaga “wanted” the surveillance video “to be seen to catch the shooter and recover her dogs.”

She offered $500,000 for the safe return of her pets.

Gaga is in Italy prepping to film her new movie “Gucci.” A source told “Entertainment Tonight” that she is “beside herself” and “is horrified that this happened.”

“Her dogs are her babies and she is completely devastated and sickened by this,” the source said, adding that the singer feels “helpless” because she is far away.
