"Jose umay, is our producer. The top stories we're following for you tonight. President Biden's offhand comment at a fundraiser last night is raising the specter of Russia using a nuclear weapon to counter Ukraine's army retaking parts of eastern Ukraine. Russian president Vladimir Putin recently alluded to the possibility of using tactical nuclear weapons, President Biden commented on the threat Thursday while at a fundraiser. He said, quote, we have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis. Ian bremmer, president of Eurasia group, says while he agrees, it's the most dangerous period since 1960 twos Cuban missile crisis, he still characterizes the risk as very low. The White House and President Biden have directly let the Kremlin know exactly what would happen to Russia if they were to do that. That report from CBS Natalie brand, The White House says the president's comment is not based on any new intelligence report. Now, mister Putin has threatened multiple times to use nuclear weapons in this war, raising the question would he really do that? There are those who say yes because he's under tremendous pressure, WTO's national security correspondent JJ green has details about that pressure. The Washington Post reported today that an unidentified member of Russian president Vladimir Putin's inner circle confronted him recently about mishandling the war. That is pressure. No one confronts Putin. And if they do, typically, there is a death sentence associated. But the wife of jailed activist Vladimir Kara murza told WTO today, no matter how much pressure he's under right now, it's not enough. That hasn't been enough pressure to make the regime collapse. So precious should continue. Sanctions should continue. Says protests are exploding all over Russia. And there have been over 19,000 detentions since February. That's 9 zero 1090 thousand detentions and more are happening every day. In addition, more than a half million people have fled Russia in the last two weeks to avoid fighting in the war, leaving the elites to either fight or flee, and they don't want to do either. Hence the pressure on Putin is mounting. National security correspondent JJ green. Gas prices are rising again and calls in Congress are getting louder to take action against Saudi Arabia and OPEC nations over their plans to cut oil production. WTO's Mitchell Miller is on Capitol Hill. The national average keeps creeping up, triple-A says it's nearing $4 a gallon, and in parts of California, it's well over $6 a gallon. Well, that's due in part to refinery maintenance. OPEC plus's decision to slash production this week worries some in Congress. Lawmakers are considering bringing back a nope Bill to allow the U.S. to take action against foreign oil producers if they fix prices. Republicans like Wyoming senator John barrasso have been critical of the Biden administration's energy policies, arguing they hurt consumers. They're taking the lead to energy that's more expensive and less reliable. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO, B news. The Labor Department says the September jobless rate stands at three and a half percent. That is the lowest in half a century. Employers eased up on hiring a bit, but still added 263,000 jobs for the month. The good news on jobs, though, has been bad for investors. They see it as more evidence that the fed will continue to raise interest rates to knock down inflation. Bank rate senior economic analyst and Washington bureau chief Mark Hamrick joined us earlier to break it down. During normal times, this would be regarded as a strong or stable good job to report. But as we know, these are anything but normal times. And so the reason why the stock market sees fit to take stock prices lower again today is it is seen as keeping the Federal Reserve on track for further rate increases. Obviously in the battle against inflation. The Dow fell more than 2% today, the NASDAQ dropped almost 4%. The woman who says Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker paid for her abortion in 2009 now says that he urged her to have a second abortion.

In the district, Christy king, WTO P news. If you're an Uber eats or Grubhub driver, listen up. You could soon be fined in the district for stopping in the road to pick up or drop off food deliveries. Right now, the department of 400 vehicles only enforces traffic violations for cars carrying passengers like ubers, but under a new bill they could have jurisdiction over food delivery cars. Emergency and temporary legislation here are very narrowly tailored to only give the department the power to issue traffic citations.

To be clear, this would not apply to delivery services like Amazon or FedEx account member tree on white voice concern about targeting these delivery drivers.
