    MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The former Minneapolis Police Officers accused of killing George Floyd made court appearances in downtown Minneapolis Monday where a judge set a trial date for next year and warned public officials to stop talking about the case publicly. The Hennepin County judge made it clear to public officials and family members of the victims and officers during the hearings Monday that he will move the trial out of Hennepin County if they continue to comment on the innocence or guilt of the officers involved in this case. “From this day forward, everyone has a warning,” the...

    The fired rookie cop who bailed out of jail on serious charges over George Floyd’s death managed to raise his $750,000 bond with the help of donations to a crowdfunding site, according to a report. Thomas Lane, 37, posted cash bail Wednesday thanks in part to those who responded to an appeal decrying how high the bail was set, the Star Tribune said.

    Now that Seattle has caved to insanity it sets me to thinking this morning.How much insanity, mayhem, and law-breaking will occur when Derek Chauvin goes on trial? How quickly do they dare to present that trial? Might that trial take place BEFORE the November Presidential election?What king of chaos do people here predict may happen during the Chauvin/Floyd murder trial?

    Ed Buck’s Laurel Avenue apartment apparently is still empty and on the market. But his cell at the federal Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles will remain occupied for longer than originally anticipated. That’s because the date of Buck’s trial on two federal charges of providing drugs resulting in death of two black men and three counts of distributing methamphetamine to young black men, once scheduled for Nov. 26, 2019, then moved to Aug. 4 of this year now has been postponed to Jan. 19, 2021. Buck, 65, is a white gay man known for his donations to Democratic...

    A Randomized Clinical Trial KEY POINTSQuestion How safe and effective are 2 different regimens of chloroquine diphosphate in the treatment of severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)? Findings In this phase IIb randomized clinical trial of 81 patients with COVID-19, an unplanned interim analysis recommended by an independent data safety and monitoring board found that a higher dosage of chloroquine diphosphate for 10 days was associated with more toxic effects and lethality, particularly affecting QTc interval prolongation. The limited sample size did not allow the study to show any benefit overall regarding treatment efficacy.Meaning The preliminary findings from the CloroCovid-19 trial...

    Clinical trials are key to effective treatments, even if it means LONG DELAYS IN THE USE OF the MAJORITY OF PATIENTS WHO NEED THEM, said Dr. William Schaffner, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “There are any number of drugs in the laboratory that seem to have some kind of anti-viral effect,” he said. “That’s very intriguing. But there’s a long distance between what works in the lab and what works in humans.” But some experts are pushing back against the hype, warning that none of these...

    President Donald Trump said U.S. health officials should have a “good idea” whether an anti-malaria drug being tested as a treatment for COVID-19 is effective in fighting the coronavirus in “the next three days.” “Hydroxychloroquine is something that I have been pushing very hard,” Trump said Monday morning during an interview on Fox News. “I think we’re going to have a good idea over the next three days because it’s been used now in New York at my request -- 1,100 people. It’s been used. I think that’s better than testing it in a laboratory. But the doctors tell me...

    Officials are working out final details in plans to begin clinical trials next week for a malaria drug combination that appears to hold some promise for confronting the coronavirus pandemic. New York state Health Department officials are making arrangements to determine what patients at which hospitals will be allowed to participate in trials with hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax and chloroquine, a senior official at the department with knowledge of the plan told ABC News. The bulk of the patients are expected to be in the New York City metro area because the region has the biggest cluster of cases. [snip] New York...

    A member of Harvey Weinstein’s jury spoke out about being shown naked photos of the former producer during his rape trial. The jurors were shown naked photos of Weinstein as evidence during the trial, according to an interview published Tuesday by “Inside Edition.” “I tried to block it out,” said the woman, who was only identified as “juror no. 2.” “It was presented to us, so it wasn’t something that we could have blocked out, but it’s hard not to make a face.” As previously reported, actress Jessica Mann testified about the first time she saw Weinstein naked, claiming he...

    The Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump may have ended, but the political fallout will continue for weeks and possibly months to come. A pair of Democratic super PACs on Friday announced reservations for a several-million-dollar digital ad campaign targeting Republican senators in Arizona, Maine and North Carolina, two days after the trio voted to acquit Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Armed with polling showing voters largely supported an expanded trial, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is trying to raise money for key challengers to Republican incumbents. “We know you’re angry,” the DSCC began...

    “What they’re looking at is the effect of this drug -- either the drug plus standard of care versus standard of care alone,” Anthony S. Fauci, MD, reported Feb. 7 during a press briefing held by members of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force. “I think pretty soon we are going to get a definitive answer, whether one of these among several drugs works.” Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, added that several organizations and individual investigators are developing vaccines for 2019-nCoV. In one such effort, the National Institutes of Health is working with Moderna...

    The Senate has voted against impeaching President Donald Trump, defeating two articles of impeachment by votes of 52-48 and 53-47. Trump joins two former presidents, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, in being impeached by the House of Representatives before being acquitted by the Senate. The House failed to produce credible evidence that the president committed any “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” or engaged in any action that justified his impeachment by the House, let alone his conviction and removal from office by the Senate. Despite Democrats’ loss in the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and...

    WASHINGTON — The Republican-led U.S. Senate is expected to acquit President Donald Trump on Wednesday at the end of his impeachment trial on charges that he abused his power in dealings with Ukraine and obstructed efforts to uncover the alleged misconduct. Here is a summary of the reasons that Trump's Republicans, who control 53 seats in the 100-seat chamber, say he should not be removed from office: * Trump did nothing wrong * Trump's actions were wrong, but not impeachable * Removal of Trump would upset voters * Not enough evidence * Let the voters decide

    Here’s another first for President Trump’s impeachment: He will be giving the State of the Union address Tuesday night, less than 24 hours before the Senate is expected to acquit him and end impeachment proceedings. President Bill Clinton had to deliver his State of the Union during impeachment, in the middle of his Senate trial. And he never once mentioned impeachment during his 77-minute address, reports The Post’s Paul Kane.... Let’s look at some of the most common process arguments they use not to convict Trump. 1. Democrats held witness depositions behind closed doors 2. Democrats subpoenaed witnesses before they...

    Inside the Mansfield Room at the Capitol, where Senate Republicans have held daily strategy sessions during President Trump’s impeachment trial, senators began walking through their arguments on why they should block witnesses from testifying in the proceedings. But at this lunch on Thursday, Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) was getting visibly annoyed. If this is meant to persuade me, Romney told his colleagues, it’s not helpful, according to two officials with knowledge of the exchange. The senator, a near-lone GOP voice in seeking witnesses for the trial, felt as if other Republicans were singling him out.... Trump’s acquittal was never in...

    Full title of article: "Michael Avenatti’s Lonely Fall The disgraced lawyer wanted to be a legal celebrity. Now he’s not even the most famous defendant on the block." Excerpt: Over the last year or so, the swift and not particularly surprising fall of lawyer Michael Avenatti has descended through the circles of bankruptcy, alleged domestic violence, banishment from cable television, and separate indictments for tax fraud, extortion, and cheating Stormy Daniels, his most important client. In mid-January, federal agents arrested Avenatti in the middle of a disciplinary hearing before the State Bar of California and charged him with violating his...

    Now that the Senate trial is over, I hope Democrats have plenty of water and aspirin in preparation for the raging impeachment headache they're about to endure. **SNIP** I suspect that, when Democratic voters asked for impeachment, they weren't thinking of a scenario wherein Trump remains in office. I suspect that when Democratic Reps. Maxine Waters, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez worked their wild base into a frothy mess by pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to impeach, the expected outcome wasn't that Trump gets ready for a reelection campaign to spend another four years in the White House. This absolutely...
