    Sen. JD Vance’s (R-Ohio) surprise appearance at a Manhattan courthouse to support former President Trump, and his qualified answer about supporting the results of the 2024 election, show he’s challenging Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) as the Senate front-runner to be Trump’s running mate in the fall. GOP senators and strategists say it’s hard to predict whom Trump will choose, but they say Scott and Vance are viewed as the two most likely choices within the Senate GOP conference. Vance and Scott are stepping up their efforts to grab Trump’s attention by staying close to his orbit and showing off their...

    On Monday, in the ongoing Manhattan trial of former President Donald Trump, a witness for the prosecution gave some startling testimony. While on the stand being questioned by the defense, former Trump Organization controller Jeffrey McConney testified that former President Trump did not personally order payments made to attorney Michael Cohen, who allegedly paid the "hush money" payment to porn star Stormy Daniels."Michael Cohen was a lawyer?" defense attorney Emil Bove asked former Trump Organization controller Jeffrey McConney on Monday at the start of the fourth week of the trial."Sure, yes," McConney responded. "And payments to lawyers by the Trump...

    The prosecutor at the center of former President Donald Trump’s so-called "hush money" trial in New York received a total of $12,000 from the Democratic National Committee for consulting work in 2018, records show. According to the data collected by the Federal Election Commission, the DNC gave Matthew Colangelo two $6,000 payments in January 2018 for “political consulting.” At the time of the payments, Colangelo was working in the office of then-New York Attorney General Eric Scheiderman as a deputy, according to Fox News. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who brought the current case against Trump, also worked in that...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | April 29, 2024 | Gerard Baker
    For a fleeting moment this spring, New York City actually feels like that famous 1976 Saul Steinberg cover for the New Yorker—the one that captures the now-faded solipsistic conviction of the city’s residents that nothing of significance happens beyond their little island. “View of the World From 9th Avenue” looks out west at a flat, anonymous planet that exists unknown across the Hudson River, the vast empty plains beyond “Jersey” dotted with little settlements like Kansas City and Chicago, as the alien nation beyond the metropolis diminishes with perspective toward a Pacific Ocean narrower than the three blocks between the...
  • "Midtown Jane Doe" Cold Case Advances After DNA Links Teen Murdered Over 50 Years Ago to 9/11 Victim's Mother

    CBS News ^ | April 29, 2024 | Emily Mae Czachor
    Authorities have finally identified the remains of a New York City teenager coined "Midtown Jane Doe," after her grisly murder spawned a decadeslong cold case investigation. A recent breakthrough owed to advanced forensics linked her DNA to the mother of a woman killed on 9/11. Jane Doe was identified as Patricia Kathleen McGlone, who was just 16 at the time of her death and had previously lived and attended school in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. Investigators believe she was murdered during the latter half of 1969, or, potentially, at some point in early 1970, said Detective Ryan Glas...
  • Reputed Genovese Mobster Anthony ‘Rom’ Romanello Has ‘No Regrets’ About Viral Punch of NYC Restaurateur: Lawyer

    A reputed mobster caught-on-camera slugging a New York City restaurateur has “no regrets” about landing the blow, his lawyer said Monday — as the elderly tough guy was sentenced to two years in prison for the extortion plot. Jerry McMahon, the attorney for alleged Genovese crime family capo Anthony “Rom” Romanello, argued in Brooklyn federal court that even he would have punched steakhouse owner Shuqeri “Bruno” Selimaj during the 2017 encounter. “His lawyer thinks that beyond any shadow of a doubt that Rom has no regrets. And why should he?” McMahon said.

    Aidan Parisi pledged to 'resist' and called for 'intifada' after Columbia ordered him to vacate his on-campus apartment.. For more than two weeks, Columbia University graduate student Aidan Parisi has defied the university’s suspension, refusing to vacate his dorm room on the school's Manhattan campus. The school announced Parisi’s suspension on April 4 following his participation in a pro-Hamas event. And while Columbia leaders have pledged to enforce the suspension, they have yet to follow through. In the meantime, Parisi has contributed to the mayhem that has engulfed the campus over the past several days, serving as a leader of...

    Fifty women have been randomly attacked by strangers so far this year in the lower half of Manhattan, an NYPD official said. “The trend that I’m getting from the people that we’re arresting, the majority of them are homeless, the majority of them seem like they need some kind of help with mental illness,” Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny said at One Police Plaza Tuesday. Most of the attacks don’t appear to be copycats and cops don’t consider them a trend, Kenny said.

    Warning: Disturbing video: A horrific scene occurred on Friday outside the Manhattan courthouse where the trial of former President Donald Trump is underway. A man doused himself with a flammable liquid before setting himself on fire near the courtroom on day four of the criminal trial, just moments after a full jury of 12 was impaneled. The video captures distressing images of a man twitching on the ground while engulfed in flames. Another individual rushed in with a fire extinguisher to help, as law enforcement stripped off their jackets and took other measures in an effort to extinguish the flames....

    The brute accused of punching a 9-year-old girl at Grand Central Terminal allegedly told police he launched the unprovoked attack because he was “thirsty,” prosecutors said Monday. The bizarre motive for Jean Carlos Zarzuela’s alleged Saturday assault was revealed by prosecutors during his arraignment during which he was ordered held on $100,000 bail — after being cut loose earlier this month following a similar attack. “I hit the girl in the face because I was thirsty,” Zarzuela, 30, allegedly told a detective, Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Shara Safer said during the arraignment. “Maybe I hit her in the face by...

    Ten Jewish students have filed a federal civil rights suit against The Cooper Union for failing to protect them and their classmates from antisemitism. The complaint filed in Manhattan federal court Wednesday cites an Oct. 25, 2023 incident in which the students said feared for their lives while locked in the campus library ... “Cooper Union has failed to adequately protect not just our clients but other Jewish students on campus in the face of pro-Hamas hate,” ... “No student should be subjected to intimidation, fear or hatred when pursuing an education,” ... The suit claims Cooper Union — a...

    The integrity of the American judicial system, predicated on the principle of a fair trial by an impartial jury, faces a monumental test in the upcoming hush-money trial of former President Donald Trump. As Judge Juan Merchan lays out the jury selection questionnaire, probing potential jurors on their political affiliations, rally attendances, and views on Trump, the challenge of assembling an unbiased jury in Manhattan—or anywhere, for that matter—becomes glaringly evident. The questionnaire, as reported, delves into whether prospective jurors have participated in Trump’s rallies, are members of politically charged groups like the Proud Boys or Antifa, or have engaged...

    A Salon writer has been roasted on social media for blaming the “male rage fuelling MAGA” for the recent incidents of women being punched in the face in New York City. The leftist website published bizarre and unfounded claims in an article authored by Amanda Marcotte that the same misogyny behind Trump supporters animated the brutal attacks. The article reads: “These stories resonate, as well, because the nation is having a moment of increasingly unhinged male fury at women for daring to have lives that are centered around something other than catering to a man’s every whim. Unleashed by Donald...

    On Monday, April 15, President Donald Trump will become the first former president and the first major presidential candidate in American history to face a criminal trial. Not only is this unprecedented, it's happening with one of the weakest criminal cases in recent memory. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office searched for any way to charge the former president since 2017. The investigation poured over President Trump's personal and business life, and they settled on charging the former president with 34 felonies for the non-felony of his attorney Michael Cohen settling a nuisance claim. The case is so weak that The...

    After several women came forward on TikTok saying they had been randomly punched in the face by strangers, the NYPD has made an arrest — though it's not clear if the suspect is believed to be connected to any of the claims on social media. Police arrested Skiboky Stora, 40, of Brooklyn, on Wednesday after a 23-year-old woman reported to police that on Monday morning, a stranger had struck her, the NYPD confirms to PEOPLE in a statement. “The victim fell to the ground and suffered injuries to the left side of her face,” they said in the statement. Stora...

    The failed politician who was arrested for allegedly sucker-punching a 23-year-old woman in Manhattan on Monday has a penchant for documenting his harassment of women on his multiple TikTok accounts. Skiboky Stora, 40, of East New York, was charged with assault Wednesday in connection with a random Monday attack on Halley Kate Mcgookin after she recounted the incident to her more than a million TikTok followers. Stora, an aspiring rapper who unsuccessfully ran for mayor, governor and City Council over the past three years, appears to maintain ten different TikTok accounts, which were viewed by The Post and document his...

    New York weed shops are stocking their shelves with Mike Tyson-branded edibles shaped like an ear with a bite mark – a callback to Iron Mike’s heavyweight showdown with Evander Holyfield. The 57-year-old Brooklyn native — who’s planning a comeback fight against Jake Paul in July — is rolling out his Tyson 2.0 brand “Mike Bites” and he’s planning a promotional blitz at shops next month, including an event in Times Square, a spokesperson told The Post.

    Mayor Adams broke bread with a crew of loiterers and alleged drug dealers who have been using a Burger King blocks from City Hall as their headquarters, a witness to the unusual Whopper summit told The Post. Hizzoner even apparently offered them jobs — and was offered ganja himself, the witness said. The day after The Post exposed the rowdy miscreants who prompted a fed-up resident to file a $15 million lawsuit against the fast food joint, Adams rolled up to 106 Fulton St. in a black suburban last Sunday at about 2 p.m. He walked inside the Burger King,...

    Manhattan prosecutors on Tuesday pushed back on Donald Trump’s bid to keep Michael Cohen from testifying at the upcoming “hush money” criminal trial, arguing the ex-president’s attorneys will be welcome to grill his former fixer — when he takes the stand. The argument from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg came a day after Trump’s camp ripped a proposed gag order that would bar the GOP presidential frontrunner from attacking the case’s witnesses, the court’s staff and families as an “unconstitutional” bid to “assail” him. “American voters have the First Amendment right to hear President Trump’s uncensored voice on all issues...
