The Justice Department has charged two Pennsylvania women in connection with the January 6 riots in Washington D.C. One of the two women made violent threats against Speaker Nancy Pelosi on camera.

CNN reports that Dawn Bancroft was arrested on Friday along with another woman, Diana Santos-Smith. The two women were charged with violent entry on Capitol grounds, remaining in a restricted area, and disorderly conduct in a restricted building.

Bancroft, a gym owner, filmed the “selfie” style video showing the women in a crowd trying to exit the Capitol.

According to an affidavit, Bancroft can be heard saying, “We broke into the Capitol. … We got inside, we did our part,” and “We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’friggin’ brain, but we didn’t find her.”

Santos-Smith told detectives that she and Bancroft did not go into any chambers or offices while inside the Capitol. She also claimed that the two were inside the for less than a minute.

The New York Post reports that someone sent the video to the FBI on January 12. Bancroft had shared the video with her family and advised them also to delete the video.

Donald Trump Will Pretend To Run For President in 2024 To Make More Money

According to his niece Mary, Donald Trump will “pretend” to run for president in 2024 to collect funds before finally dropping out.

Since leaving the White House in January, Trump has attempted to maintain his status as the center of political attention within the Republican Party.

On Saturday, he teased a 2024 run against the Conservative Political Party, falsely claiming that he defeated the Democrats last year and saying that he “may even decide to beat them for a third time.”

Mary Trump, who published a highly critical book about her uncle last year, told MSNBC on Monday that Trump would continue to tease a presidential run in the 2024 election because he had raised large sums of money from supporters since he lost the election to Biden by falsely claiming victory.

As he continued to promote unfounded allegations of systemic voter fraud to his allies, Trump has collected at least $150 million in contributions opposing the outcome of November’s election.

According to Ashley Collman of Insider, the rest of the funds will be used to finance the president’s political future.

Mary Trump told MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan, “I think he’s going to pretend to [run].”

“Think about how much money he’s made off the big lie over the last few months. He’s made more money since President Biden won the election than I think he has in his entire life. So I don’t think he’s going to let that grift go quite so soon.”

Trump predicted that her uncle would not run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 because he is afraid of losing.

She said, “There’s no way that he is going to put himself in the position of losing again. The problem is the Republican party seems determined to keep him legitimate, which is the really scary part.”

Despite losing to President Joe Biden last year, several influential Republican lawmakers have already begun to explore the possibility of Trump running for president in 2024.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said this weekend that he would “absolutely” support Trump for the next presidential nomination, while Sen. Lindsey Graham has said that he intends to use Trump’s political image to win the House and Senate in 2022.

Senator Mitt Romney, who voted in February to convict Trump on impeachment charges related to the Capitol riot, estimated that if Trump wanted to run in 2024, he would win by a “landslide.”

He told listeners during an interview with the New York Times project, “I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024 if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide.”

Since sexual abuse allegations against rapper TI and his wife Tiny have emerged, Marvel Studios has decided that T.I. will not be apart of the cast for the upcoming Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantumania.

In the 2015 Ant-Man film and 2018 sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp, T.I. played Dave, a friend to Ant-Man who helped him on his adventures and ex-convicts Luis and Kurt. Characters like T.I.’s Dave were anticipated to return for the Marvel Franchise’s third installment, but the movie is still in development, so things could change.

An attorney for 11 alleged victims charged the couple with sexual abuse, forced ingestion of illegal narcotics, kidnapping, false imprisonment, intimidation, assault, and harassment. Tyrone A. Blackburn, the attorney, has asked authorities in California and Georgia to open investigations. The couple, through a lawyer, denied the allegations: “Clifford (T.I.) and Tameka Harris (Tiny) deny in the strongest possible terms these unsubstantiated and baseless allegations. We are confident that if these claims are thoroughly and fairly investigated, no charges will be forthcoming.”

Nike Executive Steps Down After Son’s Sneaker Resale Business Was Attached To Her

After her son’s lucrative sneaker-flipping company was attached to her, a top Nike executive has stepped down.

According to a brief statement released by the company, Ann Hebert, Nike’s vice president and general manager for North America, stepped down on Monday after more than 25 years at the company.

It is unclear why Nike didn’t give the reason behind Hebert’s resignation, but her departure came four days after the Bloomberg Businessweek reported on her 19-year-old son Joe Hebert making huge profits by buying Nike and other companies’ coveted sneakers and reselling them to websites like StockX.

According to the story, Herbert’s son got his start flipping Supreme T-shirts in high school and went on to create West Coast Streetwear, which made $600,000 in sales in a single month last year.

The teen told Bloomberg in a statement that he had some help from his mom: at least one of West Coast Streetwear’s American Express credit cards was set up in Ann Hebert’s name. He then used the card to purchase limited-edition sneakers that he could resell for a profit.

Hebert is estimated to have spent more than $200,000 on around 2,000 pairs of shoes he bought from Nike stores, as well as mom-and-pop shops and other retailers such as Foot Locker and Champs Sports.
