President Joe Biden suffered a stinging defeat Wednesday night as Senate Democrats failed to advance their voting rights legislation in yet another major blow to Biden's domestic agenda. 'I am profoundly disappointed that the Senate has failed to stand up for our democracy. I am disappointed — but I am not deterred. We will continue to advance necessary legislation and push for Senate procedural changes that will protect the fundamental right to vote,' Biden tweeted. Biden's Democratic stalwarts Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined all 50 Republicans to thwart their own party in changing Senate rules to overcome a Republican filibuster after a raw, emotional debate. With Vice President Kamala Harris standing by to break a 50-50 tie, but the rules change was rejected in a 52-48 vote, and Harris left before the final roll call. Democrats needed 60 votes in order to end debate and initiate a vote on the legislation that would overhaul U.S. voting laws. The package combined two separate legislative items that were already passed by the House — the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

Ghislaine Maxwell files for a RETRIAL weeks after her conviction

Ghislaine Maxwell's attorneys have requested that her sex trafficking conviction be overturned and the case be retried, due to a juror's possible failure to disclose that he was sexually abused as a child before the trial. In a court filing late on Friday, Maxwell's attorneys said that they had filed a motion for retrial under seal, but referenced Juror No. 50, Scotty David, who opened up about his traumatic past in an interview with DailyMail.com following the trial. 'For the reasons set forth in the Motion, we request that all submissions pertaining to Juror No. 50 remain under seal until the Court rules on the Motion,' attorney Bobbi C. Sternheim wrote in a letter to Judge Alison Nathan. Maxwell is hoping for a retrial in her sex trafficking case after David revealed he told the jury about his own abuse as a child during deliberations, potentially affecting the verdict. He first told DailyMail.com that he had not revealed his history during jury selection because it had not been asked on the questionnaire.

LA's woke DA George Gascon breaks silence to say it's 'heartbreaking' that Brianna Kupfer 'was murdered while she worked' after her father blamed liberal policies for her death: Her 'killer' is held on $2M bail following arrest at bus station 

Los Angeles district attorney, George Gascon, described on Wednesday the murder of Brianna Kupfer as 'heartbreaking'. She was stabbed to death last week at the furniture store where she worked. Pasadena police on Wednesday arrested the career criminal suspected of stabbing the UCLA student to death, while he was out on bail.

Smith was taken into custody about 15 miles from the high-end furniture store where Kupfer was killed.

Roseanne Barr's daughter lifts lid on 'R-rated' reality of her family's TV-perfect life

Jenny Pentland, 45, opened up about how the ABC series 'Roseanne' was based on her family in an excerpt from her new memoir, 'This Will Be Funny Later.' Her mother played Roseanne Conner, 'a prime-time friendly version of herself,' while her father was the inspiration for Roseanne's husband Dan.

Tycoon is slammed by road chiefs for driving $3.5million Bugatti supercar at 257MPH along speed limit-free autobahn and he's seen taking his hands off the steering wheel in celebration... but he claims 'safety was a priority'

Radim Passer (pictured right), 58, posted a video online of himself racing down the A2 between Berlin and Hanover (pictured main). Like many sections of autobahn there was no speed limit.
