    SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Bill Cosby will again be facing sex abuse allegations Wednesday as attorneys give opening statements in a civil trial that’s one of the last remaining legal claims against the comedian. Lawyers for 64-year-old Judy Huth will outline the evidence they plan to present that Cosby forced her to perform a sex act at the Playboy Mansion in 1975 when she was 16 years old. The case will hinge on the testimony of Huth, bolstered by photos and other archival exhibits to place the incident in time.

    Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) Wednesday called for an investigation by the House Ethics Committee into Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) over allegations that Cawthorn violated federal insider trading laws. “Insider trading by a member of Congress is a serious betrayal of their oath, and Congressman Cawthorn owes North Carolinians an explanation. There needs to be a thorough and bipartisan inquiry into the matter by the House Ethics Committee,” Tillis tweeted on Wednesday.

    A second woman accused Democratic mayoral candidate Scott Stringer of sexual misconduct on Friday in a devastating blow to his troubled campaign. Teresa Logan told the New York Times that Stringer — the outgoing city comptroller — groped and kissed her without consent when she worked as a waitress at a bar he co-founded and helped run nearly 30 years ago. Logan said the first alleged incident took place while she was carrying trays past Stringer on a stairwell at the since-shuttered Uptown Local in spring 1992, when she was 18 and Stringer was 32.

    ALBANY - On a Saturday morning last June, Charlotte Bennett was unexpectedly summoned to the Capitol to "staff" Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo as he worked in his private office. It was during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, and the governor was putting in long hours. According to an attorney for Bennett, who would later level sexual harassment charges against the governor, she was greeted by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa and Stephanie Benton, the director of the governor's offices - a role in which Benton largely serves as Cuomo's gatekeeper. "They said, 'Oh, good, you're here,' and brought...

Andrew Cuomo (D) by two former aides. “These stories are difficult to read, and the allegations brought forth raise serious questions that the women who have come forward and all New Yorkers deserve answers to,” Clinton, who served as a New York senator before her 2008 presidential run, said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “I’m glad to see that there will be a full, independent, and thorough investigation,” she added.

    The #MeToo movement has ended the U.S. career of legendary 78-year-old Spanish tenor Placido Domingo, one of classical music’s greatest ambassadors and impresarios. For nearly half a century, Domingo’s intense stage presence and warm, soaring voice captivated opera audiences; during the 1990s, he reached millions of new listeners as a member of the itinerant Three Tenors. In recent years, long after most singers have retired from the stage, he has continued a grueling international performance schedule, now singing baritone roles with remarkable pitch control and legato. Domingo’s entrepreneurial drive has been as untiring as his stage career. He was pivotal...

    Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed Wednesday to change his handsy ways after four women came forward to accuse him of inappropriate touching. “Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it,” said the former vice president in a video posted to his Twitter account. “I hear what they’re saying, I understand it and I’ll be much more mindful.” Biden maintained that he meant no ill will, and his penchant for hugs and shoulder rubs was “just who I am,” but conceded that it was on...

    In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour former First Lady Hillary Clinton explained the difference between the sexual allegations made against her husband and those made against Donald Trump. "First of all, Bill was thoroughly investigated," she reminded. "There was forensic evidence of his semen on Monica's dress. So it wasn't just a 'he said, she said' type of case. Second, at the time many women publicly stated that they would gladly service Bill out of gratitude for his support of abortion. Third, the media didn't make a big deal out of it. They realized he was doing a bang-up...

    Typing “kill” into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: “#KillKavanaugh.” It’s also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for “ki” and the fourth suggestion in searches for “k” as of this writing. That’s right — by typing a single letter into search, Twitter is suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee. The search suggestion was spotted by Instapundit earlier today and has been confirmed by Breitbart News. “KillKavanaugh” search suggestions were also observed by Breitbart News in...

    You don’t know me, though I’ve met both Collins and Murkowski when I worked for the late Montana Senator Conrad Burns. But my life, and the lives of everyone in this country, are hanging on what you do next in the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh. I call it a battle rather than a process because it is a battle, a fight, even a war. I know each of you think you’re doing your best to stave off that war, but you’re only making it more likely. Senator Flake, you were confronted on national television by two activists, both claiming...

"If you want the FBI to go back that far @HillaryClinton @MSNBC to investigate Ford's allegations .... let's investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too. Seems only fair," Broaddrick tweeted on Sept. 18.

I mean, like, there it was: the headline declaring that Bill Cosby, Mr. Jell-O Pudding, America's Dad, will spend the next three to ten years in prison trying to keep from being some bad boy's best girl while wearing the title of Sexually Violent Predator for the rest of his life. Will they make him sew SVP onto the front of his shirt? I received no reply on...

    Epic Fail: Conservatives were disappointed Saturday to learn that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, had caved to demands from Christine Blasey Ford for ‘more time’ before she is prepared to testify before the panel regarding her allegations that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago. In agreeing to delay Ford’s testimony, Grassley appeared to be taking the side of one woman with a sketchy claim who appears to have been involved with Democrats in delaying Kavanaugh’s nomination to more than 75 women who have come forward to vouch for the nominee. Now, there...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for her statements about sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Now clear why top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee did nothing with allegation for months or even ask Judge Kavanaugh about it," Sanders tweeted. "Senator Feinstein just said 'I can't say everything's truthful.'" Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill earlier Tuesday that she couldn't say that everything in Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh was "truthful." Feinstein later clarified her comments to CNN, saying, "Based on what I know at this stage, she [Ford] is...
