    A twisted Northwestern University professor accused of murdering his boyfriend in 2017 pulled a knife on a man he met on Grindr a year earlier while asking if he could pretend to stab him as they had sex, according to court testimony. Jeremy Zaloun, testifying Thursday before a Cook County judge in the first-degree murder trial of former professor Wyndham Lathem, said he denied the frightening request by the renowned microbiologist and told him he wanted to leave, the Chicago Tribune reported. “He told me I would leave when he said I could,” the 46-year-old military vet told jurors. “I...

    Missing fugitive Brian Laundrie’s mother reportedly canceled Florida camping reservations for two people the day before he returned to his parents’ home without Gabby Petito — and then she made new reservations for three people. On Aug. 24, Roberta Laundrie made reservations for two at the Fort De Soto Park Campground in St. Petersburg between Sept. 1 and 3, but changed them on Aug. 31 for three people for the weekend of Sept. 6-8, according to documents obtained by Fox News. Her 23-year-old son — who has been named by police as a “person of interest” in Petito’s death —...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A prominent cybersecurity lawyer on Friday pleaded not guilty to making a false statement to the FBI in a charge stemming from a probe of the U.S. government’s investigation into Russian election interference. Michael Sussman appeared Friday in D.C. federal court before Magistrate Judge Zia Faruqui. He is just the second person to be prosecuted by special counsel John Durham in two-and-a-half years of work. The indictment accuses Sussmann of lying to the FBI when he was questioned about a September 2016 conversation he had with the FBI’s general counsel in which he relayed concerns from cybersecurity...

    New York lawmakers will start the process toward impeaching Gov. Andrew Cuomo, leaving the beleaguered Democrat with few options to stay in power amid allegations of sexual harassment and other charges. State lawmakers will begin reviewing evidence Aug. 16 in a "secure location" and will hold public hearings after Aug. 23 – sessions that will include experts on both the impact of sexual harassment on its victims and on the impeachment process itself – in New York, which has not impeached a governor in more than a century, Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Lavine told reporters Monday. "We anticipate that...

    A New Jersey gym owner who federal prosecutors say was among the initial group of people to forcefully enter the Capitol building on Jan. 6 has become the first riot defendant to plead guilty to assaulting a law enforcement officer. Scott Kevin Fairlamb, who was previously indicted on 12 counts, pleaded guilty Friday in a remote hearing to one count of obstruction of an official proceeding and another for "assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers," the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia confirmed to The Hill. The 44-year-old, who has been in jail since his Jan. 22 arrest,...

    Defense attorneys have filed a motion to have Ed Buck’s convictions for providing the drugs that killed two men in his West Hollywood apartment overturned, arguing that the government “utterly failed” to prove any of the federal charges beyond a reasonable doubt, according to court papers obtained Wednesday morning. An attorney for Buck wrote in the motion for acquittal that the two men, Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, suffered multiple underlying medical conditions that caused their deaths, not the methamphetamine they ingested, the document filed Tuesday contends. “There is no interpretation of the evidence that overcomes reasonable doubt,” defense attorney...

    With a week to go before the special primary election for Ohio's 11th Congressional District, Democratic candidate Shontel Brown may be in hot water. In April, The Intercept reported that Brown, a Cuyahoga County Councilmember, had voted to award millions worth of contracts to companies connected to her romantic partner and campaign donors. Emails reviewed by The Daily Poster show that the Ohio state auditor's office reviewed the allegations in the article and recently referred the matter to the state ethics commission. Under Ohio law, public officials are prohibited from knowingly authorizing or using their authority or influence "to secure...

    O.J. Simpson will keep fighting recent court orders in Nevada that he owes at least $60 million in judgments stemming from the 1994 killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, his lawyer said Friday. Attorney Malcolm LaVergne said he intends to ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overturn one judge’s order to pay the slain man’s father, Fred Goldman, and another judge’s order in favor of Paul Dorsey, a Connecticut man holding rights to collect the wrongful death claim of Ron Goldman’s mother, Sharon Rufo. “I will be appealing both of those,” LaVergne said, “and...

    A Virginia couple on Monday became the third and fourth defendants to plead guilty in the sprawling investigation stemming from the Capitol riot in January. However, Jessica and Joshua Bustle of Bristow, Va., became the first to plead guilty in federal court who faced only misdemeanor charges as a result of their actions at the Capitol as lawmakers were attempting to certify President Joe Biden’s electoral college victory. Under a deal with prosecutors, the Bustles each pleaded guilty to one of the four misdemeanor charges they faced: parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building. They could get up to...

    The premier world wildlife, science and history publication National Geographic seems to be succumbing to the woke mind virus. Well, senior staff at the famous magazine are, at least. According to one conservative commentator, Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg sent out a mass email from the magazine over the weekend in which she denounced her own “white” “privilege.” Now that’s what you call a “humblebrag.” But, yes, Susan Goldberg, the head editor of National Geographic and the first woman to have ever held that position at the prestigious left-wing rag, added an extra line to her signature in a National...

    The East Lansing bar Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was photographed visiting on Saturday will not face repercussions for its violations, according to a local health official. Linda Vail, the health officer for Ingham County, confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the Ingham County Health Department received a complaint that the Landshark Bar & Grill violated coronavirus health protocols when "a party exceeding six guests was allowed to gather" but said the matter has since been resolved. Vail said all "noncritical restaurant complaints" are initially treated as "education/consultation for the owner/manager" and that the bar in question had no history of similar...

Ron DeSantis (R) look even better, Jones has continued to be lovingly embraced by an MSM who treats her like a martyr for supposedly being willing to lose her job by speaking Truth to Power.Among the numerous interviews she’s done, Jones has appeared on MSNBC and CNN multiple times, including in one May 2020 segment where anchor Chris Cuomo used her bogus...

    Ghislaine Maxwell faced her trial judge in person for the first time Friday as lawyers squabbled over exactly when she should be tried on sex trafficking charges that allege that she procured teenage girls for Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse at his posh residences. Maxwell, a British socialite and one-time girlfriend of the financier, pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking conspiracy and an additional sex trafficking charge that were added in a rewritten indictment released last month by a Manhattan federal court grand jury. The new indictment stretched the timespan of the charges from three years to a decade. Wearing...

It won’t. The riots are bigger than George Floyd, bigger than the judicial system: there’s an entire culture of systemic racism that must be burned down, to the ground.If you don’t believe me just ask MSNBC Analyst Jason Johnson, he’s absolutely outraged that he got exactly the verdict he wanted.“I actually always thought that he would be found guilty...

    A linguist for the Department of Defense pleaded guilty on Friday to passing classified information about U.S. human intelligence sources to an individual with ties to Hezbollah, a Lebanese terrorist organization, the Department of Justice said. Mariam Taha Thompson began sending the information after the U.S. killed Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander, in an airstrike in early 2020, according to court documents. Thompson, who held a top secret security clearance, had been stationed at a Special Operations Task Force facility in Iraq from mid-December 2019 until her arrest a few months later. Years before she began passing classified...

    On Tuesday, the Albany Times-Union reported that an unnamed female aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo had filed a complaint against him accusing him of touching her inappropriately. On Wednesday, the paper reported the explosive details from the complaint: She says she was groped by Cuomo after she had been summoned to the governor’s residence in late 2020. According to the account, the staff member - whose identity is being withheld by the Times-Union because she is not authorized to speak publicly - was summoned to the executive mansion on the pretext of fixing a minor issue with his cell phone,...
