This Day in History: Dec. 18

On this day, Dec. 18…

1998: The House debates articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton.

Also on this day:

  • 1865: The 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, is declared in effect by Secretary of State William H. Seward. (Months earlier, he had survived an assassination attempt on the same night that President Abraham Lincoln was killed.)
  • 1892: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s ballet “The Nutcracker” publicly premieres in St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • 1916: During World War I, the 10-month Battle of Verdun ends with French troops succeeding in repulsing a major German offensive.
  • 1917: Congress passes the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibiting “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors” and sends it to the states for ratification.
  • 1940: Adolf Hitler signs a secret directive ordering preparations for a Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. (“Operation Barbarossa” would launch in June 1941.)
  • 1944: The U.S. Supreme Court upholds the government’s wartime evacuation of people of Japanese descent from the West Coast while at the same time ruling that “concededly loyal” Americans of Japanese ancestry could not continue to be detained.
  • 1957: The Shippingport Atomic Power Station in Pennsylvania, the first nuclear facility to generate electricity in the United States, goes online. (It would be taken out of service in 1982.)
  • 1972: The United States begins heavy bombing of North Vietnamese targets during the Vietnam War. 
  • 1987: Ivan F. Boesky is sentenced to three years in prison for his role in a major Wall Street insider-trading scandal. (Boesky would serve about two years of his sentence).
  • 2000: The Electoral College casts its ballots, with President-elect George W. Bush receiving the expected 271; Al Gore, however, receives 266, one fewer than expected, because of a District of Columbia Democrat who leaves her ballot blank to protest the district’s lack of representation in Congress.
  • 2008: W. Mark Felt, the former FBI second-in-command who’d revealed himself as “Deep Throat” three decades after the Watergate scandal, dies in Santa Rosa, Calif., at age 95. 
  • 2013: A presidential advisory panel releases a report recommending sweeping changes to government surveillance programs, including limiting the bulk collection of Americans’ phone records by stripping the National Security Agency of its ability to store that data in its own facilities. 
  • 2017: An Amtrak train making the first-ever run along a faster route hurtles off an overpass south of Seattle and spills some of its cars onto the highway below; three people are killed and dozens are hurt. (Investigators would find the train was traveling 80 mph in a 30 mph zone.)
  • 2017: A fire and blackout at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest, forces the cancellation of more than 1,500 flights just days before the start of the Christmas rush.

Trump defiant as expected House impeachment vote puts Washington on edge

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your Wednesday …

With House impeachment vote imminent, Trump set to travel to Michigan to rally the faithful
President Trump on Wednesday will be far away from Capitol Hill — and the Washington establishment he has long criticized as an irredeemable “swamp” — as the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives prepares to impeach him in a likely party-line vote on charges of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

Instead, the president will be on friendly turf in downtown Battle Creek, Mich., hosting a rally that may rank among his most defiant — a marked contrast from the approach of former President Bill Clinton, who mostly stayed under the radar during his own impeachment proceedings in 1998.

House Democrats will convene to adopt the rules for the impeachment debate shortly after 9 a.m. ET, followed by six hours of debate evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats. Some members will be afforded only one minute to speak, and no amendments to the impeachment resolutions will be permitted.

The final vote sequence will likely begin well into the evening hours, with one vote held on each article of impeachment, Fox News was told.

The stage was set late Tuesday night by the House Rules Committee, which approved the procedures for Wednesday’s impeachment proceedings in a 9-4 party-line vote after a marathon day of contentious hearings. Wednesday “promises to be a long day,” Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., told reporters.

It will likely end with Trump becoming just the third U.S. president ever to be impeached — a history-making development that Trump has said reflects far worse on congressional Democrats than it does on him. In a blistering, no-holds-barred six-page letter Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Trump lambasted the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as an “open war on American Democracy,” writing that Pelosi has violated her oath of office and “cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!” Click here for more on our top story.

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page (Associated Press)

Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page explains anti-Trump ‘insurance policy’ texts, defends Russia probe in TV interview
Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page spoke out Tuesday night, explaining her controversial texts with her lover, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, and defending the Russia investigation into President Trump.

Appearing on “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Page was asked about the “insurance policy” text Strzok had sent to her during the 2016 election that was released by the Justice Department in 2017, part of a string of texts that led to Strzok’s removal from the Russia probe over concerns of potential bias.

“It’s an analogy,” Page began. “First of all, it’s not my text, so I’m sort of interpreting what I believed he meant back three years ago, but we’re using an analogy. We’re talking about whether or not we should take certain investigative steps or not based on the likelihood that he’s going to be president or not.”

Page’s interview aired hours after the chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISC], in a rare public order, strongly criticized the FBI over its surveillance-application process, giving the bureau until Jan. 10 to come up with solutions, in the wake of findings from Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz. Click here for more.

Gavin Newsom rejected the company’s financial rehabilitation plan.(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)

PG&E, California agree to $1.68 billion settlement for wildfires
The California Public Utilities Commission has proposed a $1.68 billion settlement with PG&E Corp. for the role the utility company played in igniting a series of deadly wildfires in 2017 and 2018 that killed more than 100 people.

Under the terms of the settlement included in a filing by the regulator, the company would be required to spend the amount of the penalty on steps to prevent future wildfires. It wouldn’t be allowed to pass those costs on to its customers in the form of higher rates. The settlement, which still needs to be approved by utility commissioners, is a slightly larger penalty than the settlement PG&E and the regulator reached in 2015 over a 2010 explosion in San Bruno, Calif.

Arkansas man struck store employee with vehicle after stealing gel insoles, ‘other foot products,’ authorities say

An Arkansas man faces a felony robbery charge following his arrest Friday after he allegedly shoplifted gel insoles and “other foot products” from a grocery store and then struck an intervening store employee with his vehicle in the store’s parking lot, according to a report.

Mitchell Allen Burroughs, 26, of Hot Springs, Ark., was arrested at his home shortly before 9:30 a.m. on the robbery charge, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Tuesday.

In addition, Burroughs has outstanding warrants for failure to appear and failure to comply, the newspaper reported.

ARKANSAS SHERIFF CHARGED WITH ASSAULTING 3 PEOPLE IN CUSTODY

He was being held in lieu of $8,500 bond and was set to appear this coming Friday in Garland County District Court.

According to an affidavit, early last Friday morning, Garland County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joshua Cannon, Cpl. Clayton Green and Deputy Elwood McConnell were dispatched to Harps Food Store in response to reports of a shoplifter who, when confronted by employees, allegedly struck one with his vehicle while fleeing.

The deputies spoke to the alleged victim and a witness who said they had seen a man stealing the insoles and other items before running outside the building, the newspaper reported.

The pair reportedly confronted the man as he was trying to drive away before he allegedly drove forward, striking the victim with the front of his vehicle. The victim was reportedly uninjured, the Democrat-Gazette reported.

The man then reportedly threw the stolen items at the employees as he drove away. Witnesses were able to get the license plate number.

After deputies reviewed the store’s security footage, they recognized the suspect as Burroughs, the Democrat-Gazette reported. The vehicle was located a short time later at the home.

Deputies drove to the house and spoke with Burroughs’ mother, who let them in the house.

Inside, they found Burroughs and reportedly confirmed he was the man seen in the security video. He was taken into custody without further incident.

A Queens soccer coach allegedly sexually abused four teens — two girls and two boys — last year, and recorded some of the abuse on video, according to the borough’s district attorney’s office.

The suspect, 23-year-old Harrison Torres, started the abuse when he brought a teenage girl to his home in Woodhaven and raped her sometime between July and Oct. 2018, acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan said in a statement.

Torres then brought a boy to his home later that year and sexually abused him, the statement said. He allegedly recorded both instances.

In November 2018, Torres allegedly shoved a 13-year-old boy against a wall at a high school and groped him while the two were visiting the American Eagle Soccer Academy.

He then also asked a 14-year-old boy to send him images of his private parts in exchange for cash, according to the charges.

He also sent the boy videos of himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, the DA said.

“This case is every parents’ nightmare – a coach gains their trust and then betrays them in the most vile ways to feed his own sick, sexual desires,” DA John Ryan said in a statement.

Torres was awaiting arraignment in Queens Criminal Court Tuesday evening. He faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted.

Barnard freshman Tessa Majors’ fatal stabbing caught on video: testimony

Grainy surveillance video captured the robbery and fatal stabbing of Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors in Morningside Park, it emerged in a Tuesday court hearing for one of her alleged murderers.

A surveillance camera mounted atop a security booth near the entrance to the park was rolling as three alleged teenage muggers accosted and knifed Majors, 18, on Dec. 11, an NYPD investigator testified.

“It’s a pixelated video,” said Detective Wilfredo Acevedo, adding that the clip captured “a little scuffle at the bottom of the steps, and poking motions towards the victim.”

TESSA MAJORS’ SUSPECTED KILLER, 14, JUMPS FROM CAR, SPARKING MANHUNT

The video’s existence emerged in a Manhattan Family Court hearing for Zyairr Davis, 13, charged with felony murder in the case.

Davis, the only member of the trio charged thus far, has purportedly admitted to taking part in the robbery, but denied stabbing Majors, authorities have said.

Under questioning by Davis’ lawyer, Acevedo affirmed that the video does not show Davis lay a hand on Majors, while his two alleged accomplices, both 14, put Majors in a chokehold, robbed her and stabbed her.

One of the middle-schoolers was arrested last week but released as cops continue to build their case, while the other — believed to be the alleged stabber — jumped out of a car and fled on Monday while he was being driven to speak with cops, sources have said.

“He [Davis] observed one of the individuals reaching into the victim’s pocket and removing something,” testified Acevedo. “He said it was a plastic bag.

TESSA MAJORS’ FAMILY, BILL DE BLASIO, CONDEMN POLICE OFFICIAL’S CLAIM SHE WAS LOOKING FOR MARIJUANA IN PARK

“He heard Ms. Majors yell for help and refuse to get robbed,” Acevedo continued. “She was just refusing to give up her property.

“He said one of the individuals had the knife and stabbed her.”

Prior to the robbery, Acevedo also testified, Davis allegedly saw one of the two other teens drop “a red-handled knife,” then picked it back up and handed it to them.

The murder weapon is yet to be recovered, according to police sources.

After being stabbed, Majors dragged herself up a flight of stairs and to a Columbia University security booth, where she collapsed and was found by a guard with what proved to be mortal wounds, sources said.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether that security booth is the one that holds the camera.

Judge Carol Goldstein in the probable cause hearing that the case against Davis can proceed.

Davis, wearing a gray and black sweater, gray sweatpants, and Air Jordan sneakers, said nothing but repeatedly bit his lower lip throughout the proceeding.

Suspect in Maryland Popeyes stabbing that killed customer is indicted

A Washington, D.C., man who fatally stabbed a customer outside a Popeyes restaurant in Maryland last month has been indicted for murder, according to reports.

The indictment, unsealed Tuesday afternoon in Prince George’s County, charges 30-year-old Ricoh McClain with common law murder and carrying a dangerous weapon with intent to murder, WTOP reported.

Kevin Davis, 28, was killed outside a Popeyes restaurant in Oxon Hill, Md., on Nov. 4. It later emerged that Davis had cut the line at the Popeyes restaurant, where sales of a popular new chicken sandwich have been linked to a series of violent incidents reported at various locations in recent weeks.

Police said McClain had approached Davis, upset by his actions. An argument ensued, resulting in McClain stabbing Davis and fleeing the scene. A short manhunt followed before authorities arrested McClain.

Davis was transferred to an area hospital where he died from his injuries, WUSA reported.

Speaking to reporters later, Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski called the stabbing a “pointless crime” and said there was no indication that McClain and Davis knew each other.

“This is disrespectful … Again, what I think people are responding to and something I think we need to question how we are interacting with one another in society is how does a confrontation over cutting in line lead to death?”

McClain is scheduled for a preliminary court hearing on Wednesday, WUSA reported.

NYC teen says she faked kidnapping that sparked Amber Alert: reports

Westlake Legal Group AP19351635921365 NYC teen says she faked kidnapping that sparked Amber Alert: reports Louis Casiano fox-news/us/crime fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox news fnc/us fnc ef3743cb-ee94-5939-8835-40d16556c087 article

A teen seen on video being dragged inside a car and kidnapped on a New York City street in front of her mother and then found hours later admitted to staging the the incident, according to media reports.

Karol Sanchez, 16, admitted to the fabricating her abduction, New York Police Department officials told the New York Times, saying the incident possibly stemmed from the teen’s difficult relationship with her mother. One police official described the mother as “overprotective,” according to the Times.

Investigators are still determining if Sanchez or the two men involved will face charges. The Monday incident, which was caught on security video, captivated New Yorkers, prompted an Amber Alert and got widespread media attention. The NYPD celebrated the news of her safe return Tuesday.

Footage from a security camera near the scene was released and authorities implored the public to help in finding the girl. It was not clear what may have prompted the staged kidnapping.

One police official pointed to Sachez’s mother’s desire to relocate them back to her native Honduras, which the the teen was opposed to.

“Her mother wanted to move them back to Honduras, but she [Karol] was adamantly against it,” one police source told the New York Post.

Sanchez was questioned inside the New York Police Department’s 40th Precint in the Bronx Tuesday night and released.

The alleged abduction occured around 11:20 p.m. Monday as Sanchez and her mother were walking near East 156 Street in the Bronx. Surveillance video appears to show two men jumping out of a car and shoving the mother to the ground and dragging the 16-year-old into a car before speeding off.

On Tuesday, Sanchez approached police officers who were stationed on Eagle Avenue just after 2:30 p.m. and told them she was the missing teen.

Texas grandmother allegedly murdered by cable man, police say

The cable man accused of brutally killing an 83-year-old grandmother in Texas could face the death penalty if convicted, authorities said Tuesday.

Roy James Holden Jr. faces a capital murder charge in the death of Betty Thomas, who was found dead Dec. 12 inside her Dallas-area home with multiple stab wounds to the chest.

Prosecutors said Holden knew Thomas through his job as a Spectrum cable worker and had previously been to the residence. He was not working at the time of Thomas’ death, police said, according to KXAS-TV.

“This is a terrible tragedy and our thoughts are with the victim and her family and friends,” Spectrum told The Dallas Morning News in a statement. “We are actively working with Irving police as they conduct their investigation.”

Spectrum said a background check prior to Holden’s employment with the utility did not turn up any criminal activity.

Investigators said Holden used Thomas’ debit card hours after the slaying and that he was captured on her home security video system walking into her home wearing the same clothing he was seen wearing when he used her card.

Missing Texas mom: Investigators won’t rule out any possible suspects in hunt for woman, baby girl

The search for a missing Texas mom and her three-week-old baby girl is still underway, and authorities said Tuesday they aren’t ruling out any possible suspects.

Heidi Broussard and her daughter, Margot Carey, vanished from their home near West William Cannon and South First Street in Austin on Thursday after Broussard dropped her son off at Cowan Elementary School in the morning, police said in a news release.

Authorities believe both mother and baby returned to their residence before they went missing, but Broussard’s car and her and her daughter’s belongings were all still at the residence when Broussard’s fiance, Shane Carey, discovered them missing and alerted police.

TEXAS MOM, 2-WEEK-OLD GIRL VANISH; BABY’S FATHER PLEADS FOR THEIR RETURN

“We have reason to believe that both of them were back at the apartment complex after being at the school,” Detective Brad Herries with the Austin Police Department Violent Crimes Unit said at a news conference Tuesday.

Police said they were called to the apartment at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. Shane told local news outlets that he received a phone call from his son’s school when Broussard didn’t return to pick him up at the end of the day.

The couple, who has been together for nearly 10 years, was also raising Carey’s older child from a previous marriage.

Investigators said they “do not have a person of interest” currently, adding that “anything is possible” and they are not ruling out any potential suspects, Herries said.

“We’re exploring every avenue we have and every possibility,” he said. “It’s possible that Heidi and Margot left on their own accord. It’s also possible that there could be something nefarious or foul play involved.”

Police alluded to previous calls of disturbances or “investigations” at the apartment prior to the mother and daughter’s disappearance, but did not elaborate.

Authorities were tight-lipped on the details of the “ongoing investigation” but did say that the FBI has teamed up with the police department to aid in the search. Authorities are asking the community to call the police if they have any information that could lead to finding Broussard and her daughter.

Herries said the search for the pair is ongoing and police “have no reason to believe Margot or Heidi are harmed. We are still looking for them in a search and recovery manner.”
