A man whose family members were key architects of the American conservative movement was sentenced Friday to three years and nine months in federal prison for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, which included smashing windows that allowed the mob to storm into the building during the initial breach. Federal prosecutors sought more than 11 years in prison and a terrorism enhancement for Brent Bozell IV, the son of Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell III and grandson of Joe McCarthy speechwriter Brent Bozell Jr., who was William F. Buckley Jr.'s brother-in-law and ghost-wrote Barry Goldwater's "The Conscience of a Conservative."


Former President Donald Trump said Friday that he won Minnesota in 2020, despite Democratic presidential candidates carrying the state for more than 40 years. "I thought we won it in 2016. I thought we won it in '20 " I know we won it in 2020," he said during a speech at the Minnesota GOP dinner in St. Paul. Trump added, "We got to watch those votes." The false claim was the latest in a spate of election denialism and conspiracy theories the former president has promoted since his 2020 presidential loss. President Joe Biden won Minnesota in 2020 with 52.4% of the state's votes, compared to Trump's 45.3%. The margin between the two candidates was more than 233,000 votes.


Michigan Democrats asked state election officials to investigate Republican Senate candidates on Friday, accusing the Republicans of fraud and potential forgery of ballot signatures. Michigan is shaping up to be a critical battleground state in the 2024 presidential election. The state has swung between Republican and Democratic candidates in past elections, making it a key target for both parties. Following the retirement of Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow, Republicans and Democrats have been vying for her Senate seat that is expected to be highly competitive with Representative Elissa Slotkin as the Democratic frontrunner for the Senate nomination and former Representative Mike Rogers as the Republican frontrunner with the endorsement of former President Donald Trump. This is not the first time Republican candidates have been at the forefront of allegations of fraud or potential forgery.
