    On March 9, Dr. Anthony Fauci told the country it was perfectly safe for healthy Americans to take a cruise and to hold campaign rallies. Speaking at a White House briefing on March 9, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, told the world - on March 9! - that “if you are a healthy young person, there is no reason if you want to go on a cruise ship, to not go on a cruise ship.” He went on to say that “if you have … an individual who has an underlying condition, particularly an...

    Los Angeles (AFP) - Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was charged by Los Angeles prosecutors on Friday with sexually assaulting a third woman, as authorities there build their own case against the convicted rapist. Weinstein, 68, is already in prison in New York state after being sentenced to 23 years in jail for rape and sexual assault. The new charge of "sexual battery by restraint" will form part of a separate trial he faces in Los Angeles over allegations he assaulted multiple women in local hotels, with extradition proceedings under way. **SNIP** The new charge alleges Weinstein sexually assaulted an...

    (CNN) - After a brief stay at Rikers Island, disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is moving to a prison in upstate New York. The former producer has been assigned to the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in Alden, New York, an official with the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told CNN. The jail, which is just east of Buffalo, New York, houses more than 950 inmates, including Mark David Chapman, who was convicted of murdering musician John Lennon. Weinstein is expected to stay at Wende for an undetermined period of time while authorities determine...

    A day after receiving a 23-year prison term in his New York City rape case, Harvey Weinstein was in medical and legal limbo on Thursday but indicated through a lawyer that he is still eager to fight looming criminal charges in Los Angeles. Weinstein, 67, suffered chest pains the day before at the Rikers Island jail complex, where the former movie mogul was initially taken after sentencing in his landmark #MeToo case, officials said. He was transferred to Bellevue Hospital to be evaluated, the second time he has been hospitalized since a jury found him guilty last month of rape...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on Tuesday released a video purporting to explain “what really happened in Ukraine” as the campaign pushes back on expected GOP arguments during President Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate. In the four-minute video, Biden’s rapid response director Andrew Bates calls former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin “the embodiment of the corruption that has been hurting Ukraine’s government for a very long time” and cites calls for his firing from the international community and Republican senators. “Joe Biden is the person who got him out of office. It was a monumental, international, bipartisan,...

    Harvey Weinstein’s defense team has asked again for a change of venue, arguing that his rape trial has devolved into a media circus. Weinstein’s team asked in August to move the case to Albany or Suffolk County, on Long Island, saying the intense media scrutiny in Manhattan would make it impossible to get a fair trial. The New York state appeals court denied the request in October. His defense lawyers filed a renewed motion on Wednesday to move to a “quieter jurisdiction,” saying that the media attention on the case has proven their earlier warnings correct. Of the 142 prospective...

    NEW YORK -- The judge in Harvey Weinstein's rape trial declined the defense's request that he step aside as jury selection dipped into a third day Thursday. Judge James Burke announced his decision Thursday, a day after Weinstein's lawyers sent him a letter asking that he remove himself from the case. They objected to comments Burke made when he asked Weinstein if he was willing to got to jail “for life” if he kept ignoring a court order that bars texting in the courtroom. Weinstein’s lawyers blasted the judge's comments as “prejudicial and inflammatory,” and raised questions about his impartiality....

    With Harvey Weinstein’s criminal trial slated to begin within days, two dozen of his accusers have issued a statement about the disgraced movie producer, signaling their intentions to continue to speak out. “Next week, the world will be watching as Harvey Weinstein walks into court to stand trial for a fraction of the egregious crimes he has committed,” said the Silence Breakers, a group comprised of many of his accusers, in a statement Friday. ”Weinstein is a serial predator who sexually abused women for decades, taking advantage of his power and connections to systematically silence the women who could bring...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors in Los Angeles are reviewing eight cases accusing disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, an official said Thursday. The Los Angeles and Beverly Hills police departments each brought four investigations to prosecutors, according to Ricardo Santiago, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The office will decide whether to move forward with prosecution. No charges have been filed, Santiago said. He did not know details about the allegations or when the cases were presented to prosecutors. **SNIP** District Attorney Jackie Lacey created a task force more than two years ago...

    Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers have insisted he is not using a Zimmer frame to win public sympathy, after he was photographed walking without one. The disgraced film producer was filmed hunched over a four-legged walking frame as he slowly pushed himself into a courthouse in New York for a bail hearing on Wednesday. The 67-year-old’s lawyer, Donna Rotunno, told CNN at the time that his legal team had encouraged him to use a walker ahead of a scheduled back surgery on Thursday. She added: “Mr Weinstein didn’t want the press to think he was seeking sympathy.” However on Thursday, pictures emerged...

    The lawyer for the women has told BBC Panorama he plans to serve subpoenas to force the Duke of York to testify as a witness in all five cases. He says the prince could have important information about sex trafficking. The prince says he did not witness or suspect any suspicious behaviour during visits to Mr Epstein's homes. The lawyer for victims of Epstein, David Boies said: "One of the things that we have tried is to interview Prince Andrew and to try to get what his explanation is. He was a frequent visitor. They ought to submit to an...

    Alan Dershowitz has filed a federal defamation claim against Virginia Giuffre, attacking as maliciously false her assertion that she was sexually trafficked to the famed Harvard professor by Jeffrey Epstein when she was a minor. Dershowitz says he had never even met Giuffre, much less had sex with her. It is a counterclaim to Giuffre’s own defamation lawsuit against him, which says Dershowitz has repeatedly and falsely branded her a liar for accusing him of using her for sex. **SNIP** Among the Epstein friends she says she was instructed to have sex with were Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, both of...

    West Hollywood City Councilman John Duran said Ed Buck once hung an effigy of him in a park. Some municipal employees said they refused to meet alone with him, and he unnerved two political foes so much at council meetings that sheriff’s deputies accompanied them to their cars afterward. **SNIP** Buck’s political influence has drawn intense criticism, especially from black and LGBTQ activists who believe his status as a white Democratic donor initially insulated him from prosecution and that influential people made excuses for a man whose volatility was on public display for years.

    **SNIP** We’ve only just begun to see how far Epstein’s influence reached into the science and technology communities, but what we know so far is disturbing. Harvard University, to which Epstein donated before his guilty plea in 2008, said it hadn’t taken any of his money afterward. He found other ways to donate indirectly, though, including by giving $110,000 to a nonprofit run by Elisa New. (New, as it happens, is married to Larry Summers, the former president of Harvard who publicly wondered in 2005 if women were just innately not equipped for STEM careers.) Harvard professor Joscha Bach was...

    Anthony Weiner seems to be jumping back into the dating cesspool. While rumors sensationally swirled last week that the renowned pervert was getting back together with ex-wife Huma Abedin (it turned out he was just moving into the same building), Page Six has learned that he was spotted on what appeared to be a date with a different woman at South Street Seaport on Thursday afternoon. A spy at the Garden Bar said of Weiner — who recently finished a 15-month prison stretch for sexting an underage girl — “This d - - k looks to be on a date. They were touching...

    A judge in New York has granted a request from prosecutors to keep secret documents relating to Jeffrey Epstein’s controversial 2008 sexual abuse plea deal, on the grounds that the materials could hamper their investigation of others in the financier’s milieu. The documents, which will be shared with Epstein’s attorneys, are believed to concern not only the deal itself, which allowed Epstein to plead guilty to low-level state solicitation charges, but also a clause that granted immunity to any and all potential co-conspirators and named four women suspected of facilitating or participating in alleged crimes against minors. The documents may...

    The day before accused pedophile and wealthy Manhattan financier Jeffrey Epstein was found injured in his jail cell, he was handed a lawsuit from a woman who says he raped her when she was just 15 years old, court documents obtained Monday showed. A New York Deputy Sheriff, Qin Zhang, last Monday personally handed Epstein documents accompanying Jennifer Araoz's lawsuit against the 66-year-old at the Metropolitan Correctional Center where he has been jailed after he was arrested and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy. The day after Epstein received Araoz's lawsuit, he was found inside his cell, semi-conscious in a...
