The Department of Justice has filed new criminal charges against U.S. President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, CNN reported on Thursday, citing people briefed on the matter.

Hunter Biden in October pleaded not guilty to charges that he lied about his drug use while buying a handgun, in the first criminal prosecution of a sitting U.S. president's child.
Megyn Kelly reveals what Chris Christie REALLY told her during their heated off-air debate confrontation - and why it took 17 minutes to get to candidate that is 'polling at 2%'
Megyn Kelly on Thursday revealed what former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said to her during a heated off-air confrontation during Wednesday night's Republican primary debate. An audience member captured video of Christie walking up to Kelly and the two other debate moderators after his slapdown with rival Vivek Ramaswamy over comments the entrepreneur made onstage about former U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley, another 2024 GOP hopeful. Kelly said that Christie was 'p***ed.' 'All over the internet last night was a video that went viral of somebody in the balcony filming Chris Christie coming over to yours truly during a break at the end of the first hour and kind of getting up in my grill,' she said. Christie, she said, was 'mad that he wasn't getting enough questions,' to which Kelly pointed out to her SiriusXM audience, 'he's polling at 2 percent!'
EXCLUSIVE The world is watching - fire these hateful presidents NOW: Congresswoman ELISE STEFANIK shamed three top college bosses in the infamous Jewish genocide row... Here she writes for DailyMail.com to make her unswerving demand
Ask yourself one simple question: should calling for the genocide of Jews be considered harassment and bullying? Anyone with a sliver of decency knows the answer is emphatically 'Yes'. Yet when the university presidents of Harvard, MIT and Upenn testified this week under oath to Congress as I questioned them over the rampant and unabated antisemitism infecting their institutions, I could barely believe what I was hearing. Rightly, their moral depravity has shocked the world. I asked each of the three presidents - Claudine Gay (Harvard), Sally Kornblut (MIT), Elizabeth Magill (Upenn) - a simply question, one that a child let alone the leader of one of our finest universities could have answered. Does 'calling for the genocide of Jews' fall foul of their respective institutions' codes of conduct? Each of them squirmed and evaded...

Sánchez, 53, appeared to be wearing her pink diamond engagement ring that Bezos, 59, presented to her this past summer on his $500 million superyacht Koru. At one point, the pair rode the escalator together as Sánchez appeared to give Bezos's behind a cheeky squeeze as she smiled up at him.
Shocking footage shared by Israeli media appears to show Israel Defence Forces (IDF) troops rounding up scores of men and transporting them on the back of trucks. The men allegedly surrendered in the Jabalia refugee camp and other areas around northern Gaza, with Israeli outlet Walla saying they were stripped 'to rule out the possibility that they were carrying weapons'. Dozens of captives are reported to have been paraded through Palestine Square in Gaza City, with shoes and sandals strewn across the street in one image as the men were publicly humiliated. When asked about the images, IDF spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari seemed to confirm that the men had been taken prisoner but did not clarify whether those pictured were members of Hamas or civilians.

Rabbi sensationally QUITS Harvard's antisemitism taskforce because 'the ideology that grips far too many students and faculty ... is evil': 'Ignoring Jewish suffering is evil'
David Wolpe, who was appointed to the eight-member antisemitism taskforce created by Harvard's president in October, said on Thursday he realized he could not 'make the sort of difference I had hoped'. Wolpe, a visiting scholar at the Harvard Divinity School and the ADL's rabbinic fellow, said antisemitism was 'endemic' and decried the 'herd mentality'. He wrote on X: 'We are at a moment when the toxicity of intellectual slovenliness has been laid bare for all to see.' His resignation came two days after Gay and two other university presidents - MIT and the University of Pennsylvania - gave stuttering testimony before a Congressional committee, equivocating on whether calls for the genocide of Jews would be considered hate speech and harassment. 'Belittling or denying the Jewish experience, including unspeakable atrocities, is a vast and continuing catastrophe,' he said.

Vivek is toast - and even Christie won't eat it! KENNEDY's acid-tongued verdict on the real winners and losers of last night's braggadocios, ball-hogging debate
Vivek, what the hell happened?! For a candidate who ran such a disciplined early campaign, it is clear after last night's final Republican primary runoff that he's devolved into the Marjorie Taylor Greene of the debate stage, with an even longer laundry list of conspiracies. The nation cheered as Chris Christie - a political whale who's clearly resigned himself to swim back to the sea of elder statesmanship - put the pugnacious brat on blast as a neophyte 'jack***' to which Vivek told him to go have a nice meal. Listen, I love a Christie corpulence joke as much as the next person, but that cheapest of cheap shots said so much about unruly Ramaswamy's collapsing campaign. Christie - who had a surprisingly good night - wasn't done. His defining moment came as he swooped to Nikki Haley's defense after rabid Ramaswamy challenged her like a playground bully to name the regions of eastern Ukraine, the not-so-subtle subtext being that she doesn't have a grasp on basic geography.

Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget review - You'll wish these chickens the best of cluck in this eggscelent sequel... I give it FIVE STARS! writes BRIAN VINER
BRIAN VINER: Every so often a film comes along that makes you smile even before you've seen it, purely on account of the title. Who wouldn't flock to a second Shaun The Sheep caper, once they knew it was called Farmageddon (2019)? And now Aardman Animations have pulled it off again with their Chicken Run sequel, exquisitely subtitled Dawn Of The Nugget. The original was Aardman's first feature-length film, back in 2000. As it happens, that more or less coincided with my family moving from London deep into the English countryside, where (like all townies relocating to the sticks) we promptly added a collection of hens to our rural idyll. We invited the children to name them. To nobody's surprise, given how much we all adored Chicken Run, they became Ginger, Babs, Bunty and Mac.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy 'can't understand the anger', while Keegan Bradley branded it 'monstrous'... but what does the controversial golf ball rollback mean for the amateur?
The already-fractured landscape of golf was rocked once again Wednesday but rather than the continuous feud between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour, it was the sport's rule makers that threatened the peace. The golf world was left further divided when proposals to 'roll back' the ball at all levels of the sport were finally confirmed. Following a three-year 'notice and comments' period, golf's governing bodies revealed concrete plans to ban current golf balls from 2028 for professional players and 2030 for recreational golfers as a means of shortening hitting distances and safeguarding courses. The highly contentious move has split professionals down the middle with some favoring the intervention by the R&A and United States Golf Association, while others hit back in fury. But what does it mean for recreational golfers?
