Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen on video kneeling on the neck of George Floyd, after which the man died, has been arrested, the state’s public safety commissioner announced Friday.

Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington announced Chauvin’s arrest on Friday, after a press conference with Gov. Tim Walz. Harrington said he learned of the arrest as he was walking out of the earlier media briefing. Reporters were re-summoned, and Harrington made a brief statement.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is leading the investigation, made the arrest.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. today, during which he “will announce a major development in the death of George Floyd,” according to a statement from his office.

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Published

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
