Foreperson: Georgia grand jury recommended multiple indictments in Trump probe, report says

A Georgia grand jury recommended indictments against multiple people on various charges after concluding its eight-month investigation into election fraud involving former President Donald Trump, Emily Kohrs, the panel's foreperson, told the New York Times Tuesday. Kohrs declined to name any of those who were referred for charges, including whether Trump was among them, in a final report delivered to Atlanta-area District Attorney Fani Willis in December. Referring to Trump, Kohrs said: "You are not going to be shocked," the Times report states. Kohrs made similar comments during interviews with several other outlets, including NBC News and CNN.

Parts of northern U.S. shut down ahead of winter storm, potentially historic snowfall

States in the northern plains are largely shutting down ahead of a massive winter storm that could dump up to 2 feet of snow in some areas. Many schools throughout the Dakotas, Minnesota and Wisconsin were called off for Wednesday and emergency management leaders warned people to stay off the roads or face potential "whiteout" conditions. As much as 25 inches of snow may pile up, with the heaviest amounts falling across east-central Minnesota and west-central Wisconsin, the National Weather Service said. Wind gusts could reach 50 mph and wind chills are expected to hit minus 50 degrees in some parts of the Dakotas and Minnesota. The storm will make its way toward the East Coast later in the week.

Biden to meet eastern flank NATO leaders amid Russia worries

President Joe Biden is wrapping up his whirlwind, four-day visit to Poland and Ukraine by reassuring eastern flank NATO allies that his administration is highly attuned to the looming threats and other impacts spurred by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Before departing Warsaw on Wednesday, Biden will hold talks with leaders from the Bucharest Nine, a collection of nations on the most eastern parts of the NATO alliance that came together in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. As the war in Ukraine drags on, the Bucharest Nine countries’ anxieties have remained heightened. Many worry Putin could move to take military action against them next if he’s successful in Ukraine.

Democrat Jennifer McClellan wins special election, becoming first Black woman from Virginia in Congress

Democrat Jennifer McClellan coasted to victory in Virginia’s special election Tuesday, becoming the state’s first Black woman in Congress. McClellan, a state senator and corporate lawyer, was declared the projected winner over Republican Leon Benjamin, a pastor, within 30 minutes of the polls closing, according to the Associated Press. She will succeed Democrat Rep. A. Donald Eachin, who died last November, and represent a district anchored by Richmond that stretches south to the North Carolina border. Once McClellan is sworn in, there will be a record 28 Black women in Congress. Her victory does not change the GOP margin in the House as Republicans still will be able to lose four GOP votes on bills and pass legislation. Read more

Investigator: Gun in fatal shooting was exchanged in Alabama star's car

An investigator testified Tuesday that University of Alabama basketball freshman star Brandon Miller was on the scene of a fatal shooting that led to the arrest of his now-former teammate. Investigators believe former Alabama player Darius Miles provided the gun and Michael Lynn Davis killed Jamea Harris on Jan. 15. Branden Culpepper of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit said Miles gave Davis the gun while they were in Miller's car. Miles texted Miller and Miller brought Miles' gun, Culpepper said. Alabama coach Nate Oats added fuel to the fire Tuesday with comments about the development that he later apologized for. Read more
