NBC News reporter Kristen Welker, the debate moderator for the final presidential debate, has strong ties to Democrat activism and has even been caught on camera “tipping off” a member of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign about “at least one question” that she was going to ask during an interview, according to a new report.

“Welker comes from an established Democratic family — who have poured cash into party coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years,” The New York Post reported. “Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone. There was also $3,300 for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential effort against Trump. Another $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee between 2004 and 2020.”

The report comes after Chris Wallace, a registered Democrat who moderated the first debate, and Savannah Guthrie, who hosted a town hall last week with President Donald Trump, have both been widely criticized for bias during the two events.

The New York Post’s Jon Levine also highlighted photographs that were on Welker’s Facebook page that showed that she and her family celebrated Christmas at the White House with the Obamas in 2012.

“Though Kristen Welker’s party registration is not listed today, she was a registered Democrat in Washington, DC, in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004,” Levine wrote. “Throughout Welker’s tenure as a White House correspondent, she has earned a reputation for a scathing style of questioning.”

One example that Levine showcased included a conspiracy-minded question that Welker asked Trump last year.

“Mr. President, yes or no. … have you ever worked for Russia. Yes or no?” Welker aggressively asked Trump.

Levine then highlighted how Welker asks Democrats questions, including a clip from 2016 where she “was busted on live television tipping off Hillary Clinton’s Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri about at least one question she planned to ask her during a post-debate interview in Michigan.”

WATCH:

Trump responded to the report by tweeting: “She’s always been terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll still play the game. The people know! How’s Steve Scully doing?”

Trump’s reference to Steve Scully comes after he was suspended from C-SPAN after admitting to lying about having his Twitter account hacked after he sent a tweet to a Trump opponent seeking their advice on how to deal with the president.

Scully, who was scheduled to host the second presidential debate, portrayed himself as a victim in a statement.

“For several weeks, I was subjected to relentless criticism on social media and in conservative news outlets regarding my role as moderator for the second presidential debate, including attacks aimed directly at my family,” Scully wrote. “This culminated on Thursday, October 8th when I heard President Trump go on national television twice and falsely attack me by name. Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramucci. The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a new controversy, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”

Trump slammed Scully immediately following Scully’s admission that he was a liar, writing: “I was right again! Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked. The Debate was Rigged! He was suspended from @cspan indefinitely. The Trump Campaign was not treated fairly by the ‘Commission’. Did I show good instincts in being the first to know?”

The founder of a pro-Black Lives Matter group called Caravan4Justice was charged on Saturday by law enforcement officials in Southern California for allegedly ramming a car into a crowd of Trump supporters.

“At approximately 3 p.m. after several dispersal orders, a vehicle in the parking lot of the Yorba Linda Public Library at 18181 Imperial Highway struck at least two individuals,” The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. “The driver, believed to be part of the Caravan for Justice, continued to leave the parking lot and was detained a short distance away from the incident. The two people struck, a man and a woman believed to be at the protest, were transported to a nearby hospital with major injuries but are expected to survive.”

“The driver, Tatiana Turner, 40, of Long Beach, was arrested,” the department added. “She will be booked into the Orange County Jail for attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, and the investigation is ongoing.”

The Daily Mail identified Turner as a “Black Lives Matter organizer,” adding:

The chaos unfolded as about 250 people gathered, some with a group called Caravan4Justice supporting Black Lives Matter, and others to stage a nearby counter-protest supporting President Donald Trump.

Federal records show that Turner filed a trademark application for Caravan4Justice in July, and a GoFundMe campaign names her as the group’s ‘founder’.

Police confirmed that Turner is believed to be a member of the Caravan4Justice.

CBS Los Angeles and ABC7 Eyewitness News also said that the protest was a Black Lives Matter protest.

Sgt. Dennis Breckner of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said, “The people in the crowd that were hit were in the Trump support group.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that the man who was hit “suffered two broken legs and was hospitalized and one woman suffered major and moderate injuries throughout her body,” according to officials.

WATCH:

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said that when the protest and counter-protests started that there were approximately 150 people present and by the time officials had to declare an unlawful assembly, approximately 250 people had gathered.

“Approximately 30 minutes after the protests began, we began to receive reports of physical altercations occurring between the two protest groups, including at least one individual who was pepper sprayed by another protestor,” the department said. “At that time, the crowd grew to approximately 250 protestors. Due to the physical altercations and reports of individuals within the crowd having weapons, an unlawful assembly was declared and a dispersal order was issued.”

A bombshell report from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Committee on Finance makes a series of damning new allegations against Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential nominee.

The investigation launched after Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) publicly raised conflict-of-interest concerns about the sale of a U.S. company to a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden a month before Congress was notified about a whistleblower complaint that was the catalyst for Democrats’ impeachment of President Donald Trump. The Senate’s investigation relied on records from the U.S. government, Democrat lobbying groups, and interviews of numerous current and former officials.

The report outlined the following key findings from the investigation:

  • In early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”
  • In October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.
  • Although Kent believed that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board was awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine, the Committees are only aware of two individuals — Kent and former U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein — who raised concerns to Vice President Joe Biden (Hochstein) or his staff (Kent).
  • The awkwardness for Obama administration officials continued well past his presidency. Former Secretary of State John Kerry had knowledge of Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board, but when asked about it at a town hall event in Nashua, N.H. on Dec. 8, 2019, Kerry falsely said, “I had no knowledge about any of that. None. No.” Evidence to the contrary is detailed in Section V.
  • Former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland testified that confronting oligarchs would send an anticorruption message in Ukraine. Kent told the Committees that Zlochevsky was an “odious oligarch.” However, in December 2015, instead of following U.S. objectives of confronting oligarchs, Vice President Biden’s staff advised him to avoid commenting on Zlochevsky and recommended he say, “I’m not going to get into naming names or accusing individuals.”
  • Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board (supposedly consulting on corporate governance and transparency) when Zlochevsky allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Vitaly Yarema, to “shut the case against Zlochevsky.” Kent testified that this bribe occurred in December 2014 (seven months after Hunter joined Burisma’s board), and, after learning about it, he and the Resident Legal Advisor reported this allegation to the FBI.
  • Hunter Biden was a U.S. Secret Service protectee from Jan. 29, 2009 to July 8, 2014. A day before his last trip as a protectee, Time published an article describing Burisma’s ramped up lobbying efforts to U.S. officials and Hunter’s involvement in Burisma’s board. Before ending his protective detail, Hunter Biden received Secret Service protection on trips to multiple foreign locations, including Moscow, Beijing, Doha, Paris, Seoul, Manila, Tokyo, Mexico City, Milan, Florence, Shanghai, Geneva, London, Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Nairobi, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Brussels, Madrid, Mumbai and Lake Como.
  • Andrii Telizhenko, the Democrats’ personification of Russian disinformation, met with Obama administration officials, including Elisabeth Zentos, a member of Obama’s National Security Council, at least 10 times. A Democrat lobbying firm, Blue Star Strategies, contracted with Telizhenko from 2016 to 2017 and continued to request his assistance as recent as the summer of 2019. A recent news article detailed other extensive contacts between Telizhenko and Obama administration officials.
  • In addition to the over $4 million paid by Burisma for Hunter Biden’s and Archer’s board memberships, Hunter Biden, his family, and Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds.
  • Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.
  • Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
  • Hunter Biden opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong to fund a $100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden.
  • Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow.
  • Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”

The report also stated that the investigation found that the Obama administration “knew that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board was problematic and did interfere in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.”

Protesters at a pro-police rally in Fort Collins, Colorado, on Saturday reportedly beat several far-left activists after the far-left activists allegedly went after a veteran who was in a wheelchair.

Several dozen pro-police protesters walked alongside the veteran in the wheelchair, who was carrying an American flag, as they seemingly forced the far-left activists out of the neighborhood. Numerous people who were on the pro-police side said that the far-left activists went after the man in the wheelchair, and suggested that was what ended up starting the fight.

Several people among the pro-police protesters stated repeatedly throughout the video that there was a kid’s birthday party in the area, and suggested that the far-left activists had disturbed the event. At another point in the video, an unidentifiable man said to the far-left activists that “as soon as you guys step away from the f***ing houses, we’re going to leave.”

The man who recorded the video said, “So, we are currently marching the Antifa commie bas****s out of the neighborhood because nobody wants Antifa in the neighborhood. Nobody wants them here, so we’re marching them out.”

“F***ing communist scum,” another man yelled at the far-left activists.

Moments later, a fight broke out as the protesters pushed the far-left activists out of the neighborhood, which ended up in a ditch with the residents significantly outnumbering the far-left activists.

“You guys came to the wrong the city, boys and girls,” the man who recorded the video said on a bullhorn.

“Everybody keep your hands off your weapons,” another man yelled out. “Keep punching each other in the face, just don’t shoot anybody.”

Several moments later, police sirens appeared in the background as numerous law enforcement officials arrived on the scene. Some of the far-left activists appeared to get into it with the police and were subsequently arrested.

A spokesperson for Fort Collins Police Services said that numerous people had been arrested over “physical disturbances” that occurred.

“We respect everyone’s right to peacefully assemble to voice their concerns,” the spokesperson said. “For the safety of our community, acts of violence, destruction of property, and other unlawful behavior will not be tolerated.”

Photos showed that hundreds of pro-police protesters showed up to the event, many of whom were waving American flags and had Trump signs.

Michigan and Nevada both declared that “racism” was a “public health crisis” on Wednesday, joining Wisconsin, with Colorado set to soon become the fourth state to do so.

Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer created a Black Leadership Advisory Council to “elevate Black voices” and reportedly push state employees to undergo implicit bias training.

“Today, I also signed an executive directive declaring racism as a public health crisis in Michigan,” Whitmer said on Wednesday, later adding, “We have a lot of work to do to eradicate the systemic racism that black Americans have faced for generations, and it’s going to take time. But the most important thing we can do during this time is work closely with leaders across the state, in every community, to find the root cause of problems and work to eradicate them.”

In Nevada, Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak signed a proclamation on Wednesday that also declared that racism was a public health crisis.

“Institutional and systemic racism has gone on far too long in this country and in this State. Based on research, we are taking a proactive approach in joining fellow leaders around the country to declare racism as a public health crisis,” Sisolak announced. “I am grateful to be joined by the Nevada Legislature in recognizing that racism manifests in measurable ways, including in public health. I look forward to working with Nevada leaders and the Office of Minority Health and Equity on this critical issue.”

The Denver Post reported last week that employees inside Colorado’s state health department had forced the issue and thus Democrats there are set to declare racism a public health crisis in response “to ongoing social-justice protests and the inequities highlighted by the coronavirus pandemic.” Colorado has a far-left governor, Democrat Jared Polis.

“Since June, employees at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment have pressed Executive Director Jill Hunsaker Ryan to make such a public declaration and became increasingly frustrated when she didn’t move faster to do so,” the Post added. “When asked this week about those internal conversations, Hunsaker Ryan told The Denver Post the state will join the American Public Health Association in declaring racism a public health crisis, and that will become formal policy within the health department.”

In June, Wisconsin Democrat Governor Tony Evers declared that racism was a public health crisis during a press briefing with the Department of Health Services Secretary.

“We must fix what we know is broken in our society.” Evers said. “We cannot look away from the reality that inaction, indifference and institutional racism has harmed generations of black and brown Wisconsinites.”

Pew claims that the state of Ohio declared that racism was a public health crisis, yet there are no readily available records to substantiate the claim. The Ohio House and Senate last month were “considering non-binding resolutions to declare racism a public health crisis,” according to Dayton Daily News.

Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp on Monday authorized up to 1,000 National Guard troops to be deployed to Atlanta after the city’s mayor, Democrat Keisha Lance Bottoms, failed to stop the escalating violence in her city.

“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” Kemp said in a statement. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have declared a State of Emergency and called up the Georgia Guard because the safety of our citizens comes first. This measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets. Enough with the tough talk. We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians.”

Kemp’s statement said that the decision came after “weeks of dramatically increased violent crime and property destruction in the City of Atlanta” including the Fourth of July weekend where “over thirty Georgians wounded by gunfire, including five confirmed dead.”

“The Georgia Guard will provide support at state buildings, including the Georgia State Capitol, Georgia Department of Public Safety Headquarters, and Governor’s Mansion,” the statement said. “This aid will allow state law enforcement personnel to increase patrols on roadways and throughout communities, especially those in the City of Atlanta.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution noted that the order came after Kemp said he would take action if “Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms failed to do so, a move that highlighted the complicated, and increasingly tense, relationship between two of the state’s most prominent politicians.”

Kemp tweeted late on Sunday night: “This recent trend of lawlessness is outrageous & unacceptable. Georgians, including those in uniform, need to be protected from crime & violence. While we stand ready to assist local leaders in restoring peace & maintaining order, we won’t hesitate to take action without them.”

The death of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner, who was killed on Saturday evening near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed last month, drew national attention over the weekend.

“Enough is enough. Enough is enough,” Bottoms said during a press conference on Sunday. “We have talked about this movement that’s happening across America in this moment in time where we have the ears and the interest of people across this country and across this globe who were saying they want to see change. … We’re fighting the enemy within when we are shooting each other up on our streets in the city and you shot and killed a baby. And it wasn’t one shooter, there were at least two shooters. An 8-year-old baby. If you want people to take us seriously, and you don’t want us to lose this movement, then we can’t lose each other.”

“You can’t blame this on a police officer, you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an eight-year-old baby in the car,” Bottoms added. “We got to stop this. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force. We’ve had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks. You can’t blame that on APD. So, I’m just asking you to please honor this baby’s life. Please, if you know who did this, please turn them in. These people are a danger to all of us.”

A statue of famed black abolitionist Frederick Douglass was destroyed at Maplewood Park in Rochester, New York, over the weekend, which comes on the anniversary of a notable speech that Douglass delivered at an Independence Day event in the city in 1852.

“The base and lower part of the statue was damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand,” the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported. “There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism — though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance — just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location. The Maplewood Park location includes Kelsey’s Landing, where Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and others helped shuttle slaves to safety along the Underground Railroad.”

Carvin Eison, who helped bring the statue to the city, told the local newspaper that the statue was too damaged to be repaired, but indicated that another statue would be created to take its place.

“Rochester Police are investigating damage done to a statue of Frederick Douglass in Maplewood Park,” WXXI News reported. “It happened over the weekend, and police say that the statue was torn off its base, and left about 50 feet from its pedestal. The statue had been placed over the fence to Genesee River gorge and was leaning against the fence.”

The destruction of the statue comes on the 168th anniversary of a notable speech that Douglass gave where he said, “The fact is, ladies and gentlemen, the distance between this platform and the slave plantation, from which I escaped, is considerable — and the difficulties to be overcome in getting from the latter to the former, are by no means slight. That I am here today is, to me, a matter of astonishment as well as of gratitude.”

“This, for the purpose of this celebration, is the 4th of July,” Douglass later added. “It is the birthday of your National Independence, and of your political freedom. This, to you, is what the Passover was to the emancipated people of God. It carries your minds back to the day, and to the act of your great deliverance; and to the signs, and to the wonders, associated with that act, and that day.”

The destruction of the statue comes as far-left rioters have destroyed numerous historical statues and monuments in recent weeks, including “statues of former Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant,” as well as the attempted destruction of a “statue of former President Andrew Jackson before being stopped by law enforcement,” The Daily Wire reported. “Statues of the man who wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner,a notable person from the Catholic church, and a Holocaust memorial have also been destroyed in recent days.”

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) exploded on Thursday night over an ad created by an Asian Republican that slammed her for being a socialist, suggesting without evidence that the woman who created the ad was a white supremacist.

Elizabeth Heng, who ran for U.S. Congress last year in California, ran the ad during the third Democratic presidential debate on ABC News.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” the ad begins while showing Ocasio-Cortez’s face bursting into flames. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism? My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That’s socialism — forced obedience, starvation.”

“Mine is a face of freedom. My skin is not white. I’m not outrageous, racist, nor a socialist,” Heng continued. “I’m a Republican.”

New Faces GOP, a group created by Heng, tweeted the video with the following caption: “We have a choice: Will we let socialists like [AOC] be the face of our future? Or will a new generation of conservatives step up & lead us? We’re launching New Faces GOP to help identify & support the next generation of GOP leaders.”

WATCH:

“Heng, in a brief telephone interview Thursday night, said she spearheaded the PAC to give back to her community and fight against what she described as the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party that’s promoting socialism,” The Fresno Bee reported. “Heng said that her run for Congress last year convinced her that if the Republican Party doesn’t broaden its base to include millennials, women and people of color, socialism will ruin the country.”

Ocasio-Cortez exploded over the ad, tweeting: “Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird!”

“Know that this wasn’t an ad for young conservatives of color — that was the pretense,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed without evidence. “What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP’s white supremacist case.”

“GOP’s message: No policy, no facts, just displays of violence + corporations like [ABC] & Sinclair who amplify them,” Ocasio-Cortez misleadingly claimed. “They profit from burning my likeness on TV. But who pays for heightened security? Who answers the phones for the threats resulting from a violent, false ad?”

Heng responded to Ocasio-Cortez, tweeting: “Not Republicans. Me. Are you really calling me a racist [AOC]? I’m calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology. Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the green new deal?”

“[AOC] response is the Democratic [P]arty in a nutshell,” Heng continued. “They are more offended by truthful words than the acts of their political ideology that has killed millions of innocent victims. I don’t care about [AOC’s] feelings — I care about stopping her lies about the lies of socialism.”

Heng writes the following about New Faces GOP on the organization’s website:

New Faces GOP was formed because our country is at risk of being destroyed by extreme, socialist Democrats who want to upend the American way of life. If we are going to compete on the battlefield of ideas, we must find new faces from the Republican Party stand up to lead.

We need candidate from all races, ethnicities, gender, or geography. Our party has the ideas and solutions to fight back extremism and its our goal to equip new leaders with the tools to win.

The Democrats message is weak at best, and downright laughable at worst — but they have dynamic, young messengers who relate to the next generation of voters.

Republicans, by contrast, have a winning message, and provide serious solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems — yet we don’t have messengers to deliver our platform in a way that engages meaningful segments of the population.

It was once said that if Republicans were trying to sell sushi, they would call it “cold, dead fish.” In other words, it doesn’t matter that Republicans have the right ideas if we are not able to market ourselves effectively.

And that’s why New Faces GOP was formed. Our mission is simple: Help elevate the next generation of Republicans so that we can not only survive as a party, but expand beyond the boundaries we’ve set for ourselves. Identify the new faces of the GOP who will lead us into tomorrow.

An off-duty firefighter who had a firearm with him stopped a potential attack from taking place at a Walmart in Missouri after a 20-year-old man showed up to the store with a rifle, body armor, and over 100 rounds of ammunition.

“His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business,” Lt. Mike Lucas with the Springfield Police Department said. “In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still to be honest.”

Although it’s not yet clear what the man’s intent was, Lucas said, “We definitely have some crimes here.”

Lucas said that there may have been a Facebook Live posted by the suspect and that law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation and looking through the suspect’s social media.

KOLR news anchor tweeted “20-year-old man with rifle, handgun & body armor arrested at Walmart on Republic. SFD Police say he had 100+ rounds of ammunition. Off-duty firefighter with concealed carry gun held him at gunpoint until officers arrived about 3 minutes later”

The Springfield Police Department released this statement:

At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives.

The incident comes after a white supremacist terrorist massacred nearly two dozen people in a domestic terror attack at a Walmart in El Paso last Saturday in which the terrorist targeted Latinos.

The tragedy has ignited the latest round of calls for gun control from the media and Democrat Party, demanding an “assault weapons ban” and more “background checks.”

An independent study commissioned by Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) found that the 1994 Clinton assault weapons ban did not reduce violence, and a recent report from CNN noted that changes to background check regulations would not have stopped the tragedy.

Alleged child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein was found injured in his New York City jail cell when authorities discovered him in the fetal position, according to local media reports.

NBC New York, which first reported the story, did not elaborate on when Epstein was found with the injuries in Metropolitan Correctional Center but noted that he was found “semi-conscious with marks on his neck.”

“Two sources tell News 4 that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, while a third source cautioned that the injuries were not serious and questioned if Epstein might be using it as a way to get a transfer,” NBC New York reported. “A fourth source said an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.”

Epstein was arrested earlier this month for allegedly exploiting dozens of underage girls and sexually abusing them in either his NYC residence or in his Palm Beach residence.

NBC New York added that Epstein is now on suicide watch inside the facility.

New revelations about Epstein are seemingly made on a daily basis with the most recent development — outside of his injury — coming from a Daily Beast report today:

Days after Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on sex-trafficking charges in New York, Bill Clinton distanced himself from the high-flying financier and convicted sex offender. The former president owned up to just six encounters with Epstein, starting in 2002: Four flights on the billionaire’s private jet, a single trip to his Harlem office, and one “brief visit” to his New York apartment, all with staff and security detail in tow.

Now, a Daily Beast investigation has uncovered ties between Epstein and the Clinton administration that date back to the president’s earliest days in the White House, casting doubt on the oft-circulated narrative that the two only began associating after Clinton left office.
