Remember Bid on the Phone but watch here:  LIVE on O-N TV

Republicans are being critical of the Biden administration for freeing a Russian arms dealer as part of a prisoner swap for WNBA star Brittney Griner. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called the deal a "gift to Vladimir Putin" that endangers American lives. He also called out President Biden for failing to strike a deal to release ex-Marine Paul Whelan from Russian custody, calling it "unconscionable."        Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and more than 100 of her colleagues in Congress are making a request of President Biden. The New York Democrat and fellow lawmakers are calling on Biden to come up with a unified national strategy to combat antisemitism. The results of a 2021 audit from the Anti-Defamation League showed antisemitism is at an all-time high in the U.S.        There's a big difference on when different political parties decided to vote in Georgia's Senate runoff election. Around 57-percent of voters who cast ballots on Tuesday did so for Republican Herschel Walker. The early voting period was dominated by incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock, with 58-percent of the vote.        Border Patrol agents in South Texas stopped a group today of more than 700-illegal immigrants. This happened near a private ranch in the border town of Eagle Pass. They were mostly single men, and they were from Central and South America, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.        Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has banned TikTok from state government-issued devices, including cellphones, computers and any other devices capable of internet activity. Stitt says his executive order is in response to ongoing national and cybersecurity threats created by TikTok, which is owned by Chinese company ByteDance. Stitt says the state will not participate in helping the Chinese Communist Party gain access to government information.       ABC is reportedly investigating alleged violations by two Good Morning America anchors whose relationship went public. TMZ says the probe centers around a possible breach of contract involving alleged violations like pressuring coworkers to keep quiet about their romance. They were outed after the Daily Mail published photos of them spending time in New York City.
