    In a recently surfaced video featuring a panel of “progressive prosecutors” speaking at Harvard Law School, at which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was scheduled to speak late last year, Bragg’s colleagues are seen and heard on the record boasting about their efforts to dismantle the American legal system and refusing to prosecute crimes. Bragg was scheduled to participate on the panel, but was reportedly unable to attend because, “he had what he thought was an important case starting [on the day of the panel] in Manhattan having to do with the Trump Organization,” the panel moderator says in the...

    EXCLUSIVE - A consumer protection group is warning Republican governors against attempts by left-leaning lawyers to use public nuisance lawsuits as a backdoor way to outlaw guns. The Alliance For Consumers (AFC), a nonprofit organization aimed at "ensuring consumer protection efforts, class action lawsuits, and attorney general enforcement actions benefit consumers," sent a letter to all GOP governors Friday saying that since the many state legislatures have recently flipped to a Republican majority, they should be on the lookout for progressive activists attacking gun rights through these legal actions. "With victories through the legislative process becoming harder to achieve, the...

    Ghislaine Maxwell is starting another appeal against her recent conviction for sexual abuse - and she's taken on a legal team that know a thing or two about these kinds of cases. Jeffery Epstein's ex-girlfriend and business partner turned to the lawyers of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein to help get her out of her 20-year sentence. The appeal, which is estimated to cost $10 million, is set to be filed by the end of the month. Arthur L. Aidala, one of the lawyers who represented the former movie mogul, claimed that Maxwell was "mistreated" during her incarceration. Aidala's appeal...

    Hunter Biden is reportedly weighing the creation of a legal defense fund to cover the charges of his high-powered attorneys, which experts estimate to cost at least $100,000 per month. It is unknown who would run the fund and what types of “parameters or confidentiality rules would be adopted” to avoid compromising Hunter’s father, the Washington Post reported. It is unclear if foreign money would be accepted by the fund or who would be interested in defending Hunter from both the Justice Department and congressional probes. – Hunter Biden's allies are weighing a legal defense fund – He's struggling financially...

    Booking photos of Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman taken on May 30, 2020. In a dramatic hearing on Thursday, a federal judge sentenced a corporate attorney who firebombed a police car during the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests to a year in jail, arguing that his prestigious education — boarding school, Princeton, a law degree from New York University — should have rendered him a peacekeeper, not an instigator. “You’re not one of the oppressed. You’re one of the privileged,” senior Eastern District of New York Judge Brian Cogan told Colinford Mattis, even as he expressed admiration for what the...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated that someone must have known President Joe Biden had the classified documents found by his attorneys because the attorneys wouldn’t be looking without someone telling them to do so. McCarthy said, “They say the attorneys found these documents. Who told the attorneys to look there? Somebody else knew the documents were there all along. Otherwise, why would the attorneys even look? But it’s just a pattern. Remember what today is, it’s the two-year anniversary of Joe Biden being sworn in as President....

    Former Vice President Mike Pence said Monday on FNC’s “America Reports” that he hoped former President Donald Trump is not criminally charged for his actions surrounding January 6, 2021. Pence said, “But let me be very clear about this point. Congress has no formal role in Justice Department decisions, so they can make recommendations today. But when it comes to the Justice Department’s decision about about about bringing charges in the future, I would hope that they would not bring charges against the former president. I don’t look, I as I wrote in my book, I think the president’s actions...

    A Saturday Washington Post report offered some details on the legal defense team taking shape to oppose congressional Republican investigations into Hunter Biden that are expected to start once the GOP majority takes over the House in January. The article noted that the Biden defense team is "almost frantically" assembling, "not fully coordinating" and running the risk that it will "not share a unified approach" when the investigations begin. The piece, composed by reporters Matt Viser and Michael Scherer, began by detailing "a strategy session last September" where Hunter Biden’s lawyer Kevin Morris pushed "Hunter Biden’s camp to be more...

    By now millions of Americans well-informed about the pandemic know that the cheap, safe and effective generic medicine ivermectin (IVM) was blocked for wide-scale use from the very beginning by the federal government. It was a critical but medically wrong tactic within the wait-for-the-vaccine strategy. Preventing early use of IVM has surely killed and harmed hundreds of thousands of Americans. A few courageous doctors have successfully been using IVM during the pandemic, but most feared punishment as they lost their medical freedom. Now comes a mind-boggling statement from an attorney defending the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in a lawsuit...

    This past week we reported on an attorney in New York who was asked to represent President Trump who suddenly died. This successful attorney received information on the ‘We Build the Wall’ case he represented only hours before his yet unexplained death. Today the corrupt Obama judge overseeing the case ignored major issues with a juror in the trial. The attorney learned about this information shortly before his untimely death. We reported within the last week on the sudden death of attorney John Meringolo. Meringolo was successful in defending individuals in multiple cases against the state. It turns out that...

    The lawsuit, filed in January 2020, alleged that Epstein created a network of companies and conspired with others to help him carry out and conceal the alleged sex trafficking scheme. The estate of Jeffrey Epstein has agreed to pay the U.S. Virgin Islands more than $105 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that he used the territory as the base of an extensive sex trafficking operation. The suit is being settled nearly three years after Denise N. George, the attorney general of the U.S. territory, sued Epstein, a New York financier who died by suicide in 2019 as he was...

    The Pennsylvania Senate voted 29-19 on Wednesday to call Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, a Democrat, to Senate chambers for a trial to answer for seven articles of impeachment against him. The articles could result in his removal from office. But the timing of this move is awkward because it was done in a special session on Nov. 30, the last day of the 2021-2022 session. The new session starts at midnight, but no action will be taken because newly elected lawmakers take their oaths of office and are seated in January. “The majority party is attempting to set an...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead” that Attorney General Merrick Garland’s speech about the Oath Keepers’ conviction for seditious conspiracy in connection with the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot was a direct message to former President Donald Trump and those who worked with him that the Department of Justice can prove sedition. Guest anchor Kasie Hunt said, “Let me ask you about what we saw in the trial. Do you think the events of the last 24 hours have changed the calculation for the Justice Department in terms of whether or not to prosecute...

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday questioned the Biden administration’s authority to prioritize which non-citizens to deport when hearing a challenge brought by two GOP state attorneys general who say the Department of Homeland Security is skirting federal immigration law. The justices were considering three distinct issues in the case, which opens the door to shifting majorities. After arguments, it wasn’t clear if there was a clear majority in any one area. The case was brought by Texas and Louisiana. “At the heart of the dispute is a September 2021 memo from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that laid out priorities...
