  • Manhattan DA expands criminal investigation into Trump Organization finances to include family compound in Westchester County

    01/15/2021 6:34:52 PM PST · by springwater13 · 62 replies
    The Manhattan district attorney's office has expanded its criminal investigation into the Trump Organization's finances to include the family's compound in Westchester County, according to lawyers and people familiar with the investigation. Prosecutors' interest in the 212-acre property called Seven Springs is a significant widening of an investigation that began more than a year ago. It also draws closer to President Donald Trump's son Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, who was directly involved in discussions about the property now under scrutiny, according to court filings. Prosecutors sent grand jury subpoenas within the past two months to...

Murkowski, who is up for reelection in 2022, released a statement after the House voted to impeach the 45th president. She said that the president “perpetrated false rhetoric that the election was stolen and rigged.”

    House Republicans could face investigations and potential removal for their involvement in the Capitol attacks Democratic leaders from North Carolina’s western-most district are calling for the expulsion of freshman Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn, alleging his "seditious behavior" helped incite the "insurrection" at the U.S. Capitol last week. State Democrats from Cawthorn’s 11th District have written a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi asking for an investigation into the Republican congressman. They claim there was an ethics violation for "violent language" on his Twitter feed leading up to the unrest last week at the Capitol. "Mr. Cawthorn needs to...

    Update (1015ET): For the first time since the Capitol riots, President Trump spoke briefly to a small pool of reporters at The White House as he left for Texas today slamming the Democrats ongoing impeachment efforts, calling the resolution “a terrible thing that they’re doing.” Impeachment is a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics”. “I think it’s causing tremendous anger.” Trump added that “we want no violence,” and said that his January 6th speech was “totally appropriate.” “We have support probably like nobody’s ever seen before,” The President then went on to discuss the social...
  • 5 Big Problems With The New York Times Investigation Of Amy Coney Barrett’s Children: Why did the newspaper of record deem it worthwhile to launch a three-week investigation into the life stories of a Supreme Court nominee’s minor children?

    The Federalist ^ | 10/21/2020 | Jayme Metzgar
    The New York Times ran an in-depth story Monday on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s adoptions from Haiti. The story, which is the result of more than three weeks’ investigation by the Times, turns up nothing in the way of bombshell revelations. It does, however, fly in the face of pleas by adoption experts not to make children’s lives the center of a politically motivated investigation.Whether from restraint or lack of content, the Times article avoids being an overt hit piece. On first blush it reads almost like a personal profile — which is notable, considering it was written without...

    This video shows the Lincoln Project’s Steve Schmidt, on MSNBC, saying that the fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during the debate with vice president candidate, Kamala Harris, is a "sign historically of sin" and the "mark of the devil.” The MSNBC host laughed at this and sort of asked if he was serious, because you know, for the record and all. You know it's bad when even the MSNBC host is laughing at your statement.

  • Manhattan's district attorney says he has grounds to investigate Donald Trump for tax fraud and argues the president's returns should be released because of 'mountainous' allegations of misconduct

    Manhattan's district attorney on Monday said the 'mountainous' allegations of misconduct linked to President Donald Trump and his businesses justified enforcing a subpoena for his tax returns and other financial records. The district attorney's office also suggested for the first time Monday that Trump could be investigated for tax fraud, according to The New York Times. Lawyers for District Attorney Cyrus Vance made the argument in a filing with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, four days before it considers Trump's request to block the August 2019 subpoena to his accounting firm Mazars USA.

    Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump. According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history. “You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only...

    Former FBI agent Peter Strzok, ousted from his position after the discovery of text messages containing anti-Trump comments, admitted a dossier on collusion between the president's campaign and Russia during the 2016 election contained information that led officials on a "wild goose chase." Strzok told The Atlantic magazine that the dossier, written by former British spy Christopher Steele – one of the agency's key informants in the Russia probe – "was very typical of information that the FBI often receives." "It comes from several sources, including some suspect sources. Some of it is bull----, and some of it is rumor,...

Ms. Harris told CNN that Russia will be at the “front of the line” to interfere in the 2020 election. “Could it cost you the White House?” asked CNN personality Dana Bash about Russian election meddling to Ms. Harris. “Theoretically of course,” Ms. Harris answered. “Yes.” Ms. Harris, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she and Mr. Biden are ‘realists’ that refuse to ignore Russian aggression. She did not say what...

    The Justice Department announced new restrictions Tuesday on how it conducts any secret national security surveillance of candidates for federal office or their staff. The restrictions, announced by Attorney General William Barr in a pair of memos, are part of broader changes to the Justice Department’s surveillance procedures implemented in response to problems detected during the 2016 investigation into ties between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign. Coming just two months before the 2020 election, the changes are designed to ensure that law enforcement officials have to clear additional hurdles before pursuing the same type of surveillance as was conducted...

    President Donald Trump appears to have inflated the value of his three golf resorts in Scotland and Ireland in documents filed with the U.S. government, according to a new examination of six years of financial records in the U.S. and Europe. And the group behind the finding wants the discrepancy investigated as part of a sprawling government probe into the Trump Organization‘s finances. Trump claimed the resorts — Trump International Golf Links Aberdeen and Trump Turnberry, both in Scotland, and Trump Doonbeg in Ireland — brought in a total of about $179 million in revenue on U.S. documents where he...
