Congress needs to be ‘aggressive’ with economic assistance to boost recovery, Fed’s Kashkari says

Minneapolis Federal Reserve President Neel Kashkari is urging Congress to be “aggressive” with economic assistance in order to boost the United States’ recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m seeing, especially on the small business front, I mean, some sectors of the economy are doing fine. If you are a white-collar worker like I am … you’re able to work from home. You’re really not affected by this pandemic,” Kashkari told CBS’ Face the Nation. “But there are many sectors of the economy that are still being devastated. The travel and tourism industries, the frontline service industries, restaurants, and that’s where you’re seeing big job losses and bankruptcies. And this is going to continue to spiral and continue to bleed on.”

Kashkari said that there are roughly 11 million Americans who are still struggling to pay their bills and put food

Teen accused in Kenosha shootings will not face gun charges in Illinois, prosecutors say

CHICAGO — Kyle Rittenhouse will not face gun charges in Illinois related to the AR-15-style weapon he is charged with using to kill two men and wound a third during violent protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

An Antioch police investigation found that the Smith & Wesson .223 caliber rifle “was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin” and turned up no evidence the 17-year-old “physically possessed” the weapon in Illinois, according to a news release from the office of Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim. The news release does not reveal who is believed to have bought or held the gun before the shooting.

The Antioch teen, however, still faces a gun charge in Wisconsin, as Kenosha County prosecutors have charged him with possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18, a misdemeanor. His attorney, John M. Pierce argued on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s
