Russia's Gazprom indefinitely shuts gas flow to Europe

The Russian energy giant Gazprom scrapped its Saturday deadline and indefinitely extended its gas cuts to Europe.

The state owned energy company cited urgent maintenance was behind its reasoning Friday and did not provide a date when it intends to reopen the Nord Stream 1 Pipeline, which distributes natural gas to Europe through Germany.

The announcement came just hours before Gazprom was supposed to reopen the gates after it had shut down gas supplies late last month for "routine maintenance."

In a social media post Gazprom claimed it had identified "malfunctions" in a turbine and claimed the pipeline would not work unless these issues were corrected. 

But the Friday evening announcement is just the latest in a series of measures taken by the company since June that has reduced gas flow to Europe amid Russia’s highly contested war in Ukraine. Read more and see video here.

Former President Trump promises to protect those convicted in connection to the January 6 protests at the Capitol. 

During an interview, Trump vowed to pardon and apologize to the hundreds of people who are currently under investigation if he is elected to a second presidential term in 2024. 

"I will tell you, I will look very, very favorably about full pardons. If I decide to run and if I win, I will be looking very, very strongly about pardons. Full pardons... I mean full pardons with an apology to many," Trump said, adding, "I am financially supporting people that are incredible and they were in my office actually two days ago, so they're very much in my mind." 

The former president called it a "disgrace" what the government is putting nearly 800 people through.  "And mostly, it's... they're firemen, they're policemen, they're people in the military," Trump continued to say.
