Oregon State Police will return to Portland to assist city officers following a fatal shooting during clashes between supporters of President Trump and Black Lives Matter protesters, Gov. Kate Brown (D) announced Sunday.

What's happening: Brown made the announcement in a statement outlining a six-point plan that she said would "protect free speech and bring violence and arson to an end in Portland," including the U.S. attorney and FBI committing more resources for the investigation of criminal activity.

A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.
  • Portland Police said late Sunday that they had declared an unlawful assembly outside a building in the city's southeast, as anti-racism protests continued for a 95th straight night.
  • Hours earlier, a caravan of hundreds of pro-Trump supporters clashed "sporadically" with counterprotesters as they drove through Portland, NRP reports.

The big picture: The announcement follows a tumultuous 24 hours that began when some 1,000 Trump supporters rallied in a caravan of cars in downtown Portland before the violence flared and a man with ties to the far-right group Patriot Prayer died in a shooting.

  • President Trump weighed in to tweet criticisms of Democratic officials. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler responded by saying: "I'd appreciate that either the president support us or stay the hell out of the way."

What they're saying: "We all must come together — elected officials, community leaders, all of us — to stop the cycle of violence," Brown said.

  • "But this is only the first step. Real change will come from the hard work to achieve racial justice. And it starts with all of us listening to each other, and working together.
"The right-wing group Patriot Prayer and self-proclaimed militia members drove into downtown Portland last night, armed and looking for a fight. Every Oregonian has the right to freely express their views without fear of deadly violence. I will not allow Patriot Prayer and armed white supremacists to bring more bloodshed to our streets."

The Nebraska Republican Party on Saturday formally "rebuked" Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) for his vote to impeach former President Trump earlier this year, though it stopped short of a formal censure, CNN reports.

Why it matters: Sasse is the latest among a slate of Republicans who have faced some sort of punishment from their state party apparatus after voting to impeach the former president. The senator responded statement Saturday, per the Omaha World-Herald, saying "most Nebraskans don't think politics should be about the weird worship of one dude."

Cuomo barraged by fellow Dems after second harassment accusation

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faced a barrage of criticism from fellow Democrats after The New York Times reported that the second former aide in four days had accused him of sexual harassment.

Why it matters: Cuomo had faced a revolt from legislators for his handling of nursing-home deaths from COVID. Now, the scandal is acutely personal, with obviously grave political risk.
