Former Marine Indicted In CA Pier Shooting Plot - A former Marine is being accused of a terror plot that involved funneling people onto a San Francisco pier and then shooting them with an assault rifle.

A federal grand jury indicted 26-year-old Everitt Aaron Jameson on terror charges yesterday, and he'll be arraigned today. Jameson allegedly shared his terror plans with undercover FBI agents last month, which involved making pipe bombs at a campground in the mountains.

Authorities say he planned to use the bombs in an attack on San Francisco's Pier 39, where he was said to be planning a mass shooting on Christmas Day. Jameson’s federal defender filed documents stating the man is mentally ill.Source: KTVU

Report: Trump Tried To Get Sessions To Not Recuse Himself In Russia Case - A new report details how President Trump tried to stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions from recusing himself from the Russia investigation.

The "New York Times" says Trump ordered White House counsel Don McGahn to convince Sessions not to remove himself from the probe. McGahn was not successful in his efforts and Sessions recused himself because of his own contacts with Russian officials. McGahn ultimately accepted the conclusion of career officials who believed that it was proper for Sessions to recuse.

Trump was reportedly furious when Sessions did step away. Source: Chicago Tribune



The "bomb cyclone" is on its way out, leaving behind a swath of large snow totals from Massachusetts to southern New Jersey. Here are some of the biggest:

  • Chelsea, Massachusetts: 18 inches
  • Brick, New Jersey: 18 inches
  • Pawtucket, Rhode Island: 16 inches
  • Baldwin, New York (Long Island): 15 inches
  • Stratford, Connecticut: 13 inches

Now that the storm has moved through, the mid-Atlantic and Northeast are bracing for bitter cold. Temperatures in the New York area are unlikely to get out of the teens until Monday, with wind chills well below zero.

Massive Fire In Newark, NJ Made Worse By Weather -

Wind and cold temps are making the effort to control a fire in Newark, NJ difficult.

Firefighters are battling the fire on a block lined with wood framed homes. It broke out early this morning and has been devouring cars and gutting several houses as the high winds helped the blaze “jump” across the street.

Flames can be seen for miles shooting skyward. Wires are down and firefighters had a tough time accessing hydrants.

Fire officials there are asking nearby towns to help out. So far, no word on any injuries.
