    Crooked ex-pol Sheldon Silver is scheduled to show up Monday afternoon before a Manhattan judge to be re-sentenced in a $4 million bribery scheme – after his request to appear via video feed was rejected. The disgraced longtime Assembly speaker failed in his bid last week to convince the federal judge to allow him to appear remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic. “The Courthouse has reopened to the public and implemented screening at entry, mask and social-distancing requirements, and sanitation protocols, among other precautions,” Judge Valerie Caproni wrote in her ruling. “This Court is currently holding in-person proceedings where those measures are all observed. Accordingly, it is the Court’s preference to conduct Mr. Silver’s re-sentencing at the Courthouse,” she added. Sheldon Silver leaving his home on Sunday.

    Rudy Giuliani has slammed New York Mayor Bill De Blasio's commission of a Black Lives Matter Mural outside Trump Tower and accused the group of being a terror organization.  'Black Lives Matter is an organization run by three Marxists and financed by a convicted terrorist – who I happened to have convicted, who got 58 years in jail and got a corrupt pardon from Bill Clinton,' Donald Trump's lawyer Giuliani said on Hannity on Friday. 'This is not a benign organization. I can’t say yet that we can prove it’s a terrorist organization. It's certainly a violent organization and I believe in the course of time it will be shown to be a terrorist organization,' he added. Black Lives Matter is an organized movement that advocates for non-violent civil disobedience to protest police brutality against African-American people.  Rudy Giuliani blasted the Black Lives Matter movement on Friday on Hannity on...
    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man who was freed last year after spending 12 years in prison for a killing he says he didn't commit should be exonerated of the crime, the Tennessee Board of Parole determined. The board voted unanimously Wednesday to make that recommendation to Gov. Bill Lee in the case of Adam Braseel, who was charged in the 2006 bludgeoning of Malcolm Burrows, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. The vote came after Braseel's legal team argued his innocence in the killing during video conference hearing that lasted almost seven hours. No one witnessed Burrow's killing along a rural road in Grundy County, but his sister told authorities a red-headed man lured her brother away and returned to beat her so severely she suffered brain damage. The red-headed Braseel was convicted of murder despite no physical evidence tying him to the scene and sentenced to life in...
