Politico Cuts Live Feed as Protester with Handcuffs Tries to Arrest Dick Cheney

Politico’s live stream of an interview with Dick Cheney and his family cut to black on Monday just as a protester with handcuffs accused the former vice president of being a war criminal.

Host Mike Allen began the “Politico Playbook” event by asking Dick Cheney, his wife Lynne, and his daughter Liz if they talked about politics at home.

After Lynne Cheney took a jab at Hillary Clinton by saying that she was not “dead broke” when her husband was nominated for vice president in 2000, Liz Cheney complimented her parents for involving their children in politics from an early age.

About that time, someone in the audience began to yell that Dick Cheney was a “war criminal,” which caused Lynne Cheney to chuckle.

“Four more years! Four more years!” Liz Cheney shouted.

TREMONTON, Utah - Authorities have arrested a 47-year-old Utah man they say wanted to kill police officers and blow up a police department with the hope it would cause an uprising against the government.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah said in a statement late Friday that FBI agents and police in Tremonton arrested John Huggins on Thursday.

FBI Special Agent Steven Cadiz says in court documents that Huggins built an improvised explosive device and possessed explosive materials and instructions for making bombs.

U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch says Huggins appeared on a charge of possessing an unregistered destructive device Friday afternoon and will remain in custody until a hearing Tuesday.
