Hello and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know to start your day …

Joe Manchin stranded in his car by climate protesters who claim they tried to run them over
Climate change protesters bragged Thursday that they blocked U.S. Senator Joe Manchin’s car in a Washington, DC parking lot, accusing the West Virginia Democrat of trying to run them over in his attempt to get out of the structure .

“We blocked Joe Manchin’s car and he tried to run over us,” said a TikTok video posted by @ hungry4climatejustice which showed the confrontation.

The clip shows protesters standing in front of and behind a luxury vehicle inside the parking lot, holding a banner as at least one person leans on the hood of the vehicle. Others recorded themselves on video shouting at the driver. The constant sound of a car horn can be heard everywhere, but it was not clear if it was a Manchin horn.

“It’s Joe Manchin’s car slowly driving into our peaceful protesters,” one person said.

The group chanted: “We want to live! We want to live! That line, along with “F — Joe Manchin”, was the rallying cry for the protest to convince Manchin to support President Biden’s multibillion-dollar Build Back Better spending program. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

Durham accuses Steele sub-source Igor Danchenko of making false statements to FBI
Federal agents on Thursday arrested the main sub-source who contributed to the unverified anti-Trump case in Special Counsel John Durham’s investigations into the origins of the Russian investigation.

Durham examined whether the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Igor Danchenko’s arrest is linked to a federal indictment in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. Durham charges Danchenko, a Russian citizen residing in Virginia, with five counts of making false statements to the FBI. The accusations stemmed from statements made by Danchenko regarding the sources he used to provide information to an investigative company in the UK.

Danchenko is believed to be the sub-source of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier that served as the basis for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) arrest warrants against campaign aid from Trump, Carter Page. The case was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Republican Jack Ciattarelli refuses to concede tight race for New Jersey governor
New Jersey Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli is refusing to admit defeat after Tuesday’s election, despite media calls that incumbent Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy was the winner.

“The governor’s victory speech last night was premature,” Ciattarelli said in a video message on Twitter. “No one should declare victory or concede the election until every legal vote has been counted.”

Murphy’s declaration of victory came as less than a percentage point separated the two candidates in a fierce race, a result many analysts hadn’t expected in what is generally a reliable blue state.

But Ciattarelli argued that “after the counting of 2.4 million ballots”, “there are still tens of thousands of postal votes and provisional ballots to be counted.”

The process of counting the remaining ballots could take weeks, with ballots arriving before November 8 still able to be counted. The GOP candidate could also ask for a recount, which under New Jersey law he should ask within 17 days if there is reason to believe that an error was made in the vote count. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

A FEW WORDS OF APART

Sean hannity discussed what led to the Democrats’ disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, and even gave scarce praise for party strategist James Carville in Thursday’s edition of “Hannity.”

Following Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory as governor in Virginia and other GOP victories or strong performances in other races, Carville criticized the Democratic Party for engaging in battles against “l ‘stupid awakening’.

“Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island and Seattle, Washington. This police and fundraising madness and take Lincoln’s name out of schools… go to a rehab center awake, ”Carville told“ PBS NewsHour ”.

“James Carville thinks his party has gone astray and he’s right,” Hannity said.
