CBS News tweeted last hour that they have reports of Nashville police and the FBI having a person or persons of interest in the Christmas morning bombing in downtown Nashville.

Yesterday around 6:30 am in downtown Nashville, an explosive-packed RV blew up after announcing for nearly fifteen minutes that anyone in the area should evacuate.

A news conference is being held later today for updates on the bombing—and potentially an update on the suspect(s).

Police evacuated the area in the moments leading up to the blast. The identities of the officers have been released.

It was originally reported that no lives were taken in the blast and three people are injured. Police announced yesterday, however, that human remains were discovered near the explosion, but no additional details are known.

Dozens of buildings suffered damage but thanks to the quick and heroic work of Nashville police, it appears many lives were saved.

Updated information will be provided as it is made available.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
