Local journalists are accusing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot of refusing interviews from white journalists, opting instead to be exclusively interviewed by Black or Brown journalists.

NBC’s Mary Ann Ahern was the first to bring light to the situation. Ahern tweeted “As [Lightfoot] reaches her two year midway point as mayor, her spokeswoman says Lightfoot is granting 1 on 1 interviews – only to Black or Brown journalists.”

Afterwards, it was also confirmed by political reporter Heather Cherone and WTTW Chicago Tonight anchor Paris Schutz.

Lightfoot appeared on MSNBC for an interview with Stephanie Ruhle Monday. But, in a two-page letter to local media, she verified that this is a standard she will stick to from now on, in commemoration of her second anniversary.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
