    The White House said resident Joe Biden was just calling to check in on Hunter when he was on calls with his son's business associates. 'This is part of the right-wing's misinformation machine to try to confuse people about what the truth is,' White House spokesperson for oversight and investigations Ian Sams told CNN on Wednesday morning. 'The truth is that the president, as he said publicly for years, calls his family every day to check in. He calls his son every day to check in. He calls his other family members to check in to see how they are...

    Flock Safety’s business motto is: “To solve crime, you need evidence.” The Atlanta-based “all-in-one” security technology company boasts major police departments as clients for its license plate-reading camera technology. On Tuesday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr alleged in a 109-page domestic terror and felony RICO indictment that one of the 61 suspects used his employment at the security company to provide sensitive security information to his violent co-conspirators. “On June 6, 2022, WILLIAM BUDDEN WARREN, while employed with Flock, did provide locations of future Flock camera installations so that Defend the Atlanta Forest members could avoid detection,” reads the indictment....

    In a controversial move, Democratic Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis charged former President Donald Trump last month under Georgia's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. It appears Willis, the proud daughter of a top Black Panther, may have unwittingly opened Pandora's box as it pertains to the acceptability of lawfare in the state — to the detriment of her fellow leftists. Georgia's Republican attorney general made clear Tuesday that the gloves are now off, indicting 61 radicals under the same statute. Now with the shoe on the other foot, leftists are decrying the RICO charges, calling them "anti-democratic," reported...

    In their quest to sink Donald Trump, state prosecutors have expanded the criminal law dangerously far into the realm of politics, and have threatened legitimate First Amendment activity. District Attorney Fani Willis' use of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations ("RICO") Act to charge a political campaign with conducting a criminal enterprise makes innocent political activity into fodder for prosecutors, all without providing defendants a clear guide as to what conduct violates the law. While Democrats may cheer Willis on in her effort to convict Trump and his hodgepodge of allies who sought to overturn the results of the...

    These Dons now have something notorious in common. Former President Donald Trump has been charged with alleged election-tampering in Georgia under an anti-organized crime law known as RICO — a statute once famously used to finally nail New York City’s “Teflon Don” John Gotti, the late head of the Gambino crime family. The federal RICO — or Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations — Act was adopted in 1970 and since then states, like Georgia, have gone on to pass their own version of the law. More sweeping than its federal counterpart, the Peach State’s RICO law, under which Trump and...

    “This changes the rules of the game,” Dershowitz said. “This basically says RICO is not just applicable to organized crime or to organized, commercial crime with hierarchies, but it also applies to protests against election results. It’s going to deter and chill people from challenging legitimate election results.”

    Fulton County DA Fani Willis held a press conference after the indictment on RICO charges was released in Georgia. The lengthy charges, served against Trump and 18 of his associates, involve the RICO Act and are primarily regarding alleged conspiracies. "Every individual charged," Willis said, "in the indictment is charged with one count of violating Georgia's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act through participation in a criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia, and elsewhere, to accomplish the illegal goal of allowing Donald J Trump to fees, the presidential term of office, beginning on January, 20 21."

    Georgia’s Governor, Brian Kemp, signed a bill in May that will allow for the removal of elected district attorneys from office.

    Following an at times confounding series of events on Monday, a grand jury in Fulton County voted to indict former President Donald Trump on more than one dozen counts for his actions in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Just before 9:00 p.m. ET, the grand jury's decision was returned to Judge Robert McBurney and then handed off to the clerk to be docketed before being unsealed and made public shortly before 11:00 pm. In all, the grand jury handed up a 98-page indictment against Trump as well as a handful of his allies including Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows, Kenneth...

    grand jury is set to consider whether to indict 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump in connection with alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. If indicted, this would be his fourth this year. Lawyers who have followed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation, including some who have worked with her in the past, expect her to invoke Georgia’s RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act, which is modeled after the federal act of the same name, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Signs are certainly pointing in that direction,” said law professor at Georgia...

    With the transcript of Devon Archer’s testimony released, New York Rep. Dan Goldman stands exposed as shamelessly deceptive in his claims that Archer’s account mainly cleared President Joe Biden of any wrongdoing in connection to son Hunter’s lucrative influence-peddling. Among the revelations: Between meetings and phone calls, then-Veep Joe chatted repeatedly — 20 times, to Archer’s knowledge — with Hunter and his overseas clients, usually for periods longer than the cup-of-coffee or just-a-handshake that Joe’s defenders have claimed. Notably, Archer debunked the pro-Biden lie that Joe barely stopped by an April 2015 dinner with a pack of Hunter clients. Goldman...

    There’s a new charge of weaponization of the government against the Biden team.This one is going back some ways and it’s from Bill Stevenson, Jill Biden’s first husband. Stevenson was married to Jill between 1970-1975, including while she was still in college.Stevenson had already thrown a big wrench in the story that Joe and Jill tell of how they met. Joe claims that they met on a blind date. But Stevenson said that they all met when Joe’s first wife, Neilia, was still alive and Bill and Jill supported Joe in his first run for political office, long before the...

Bill Stevenson, who was married to the First Lady from 1970 to 1975, previously told that he was still married to Jill when she met Joe, and has always denied the Bidens' well-publicized story of having met on a blind date. Speaking to Newsmax on Wednesday, the 75-year-old said the president's brother Frankie Biden tried to intimidate him during his divorce to Jill, and claimed he faced repercussions when he did...
