This is stated in a VICE News report that cites “sources familiar with the case,” although it does not give details of the benefit she would receive or if that would include her daughters. “Coronel’s surrender indicates the existence of a cooperation agreement, where she could provide information or testimony in exchange for leniency in her own case.”the report states, citing the anonymous source. In response to the report, Coronel’s attorney, Jeffrey Lichtman, called the report “disgusting” and said it would respond to it if it was provided who said so. “I’m surprised the feds did this… There’s no chance it’s someone else....

    Former US President Donald Trump / Lanza Share on Facebook Share on twitter Share in mail Share on whatsapp Trump would have refused at first to ask the protesters to abandon the incursion to the Capitol The unexpected vote of Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has caused the United States Senate to admit the possibility that the parties may call witnesses to testify on the case against former President Donald Trump for inciting the insurrection during the assault on 6 January to the Capitol. Five Republican senators, including Graham, a staunch Trump supporter, have come out in favor of the procedure after prosecution attorney Jamie Raskin stated his intention to call at least Republican Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler to testify, which revealed a crucial conversation between Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy occurred during the assault. He refused to ask the...

    At the end of its first day of argument, the Senate impeachment trial was thrown into chaos when a "juror" stood up like a scene out of Perry Mason to contest the veracity statements made by "prosecutors." That moment came as the Senate was preparing to end for the day. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, jumped to his feet to object that a quote by House manager Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., was false. Lee should know. They were purportedly his words.  After a frenzy on the floor and a delay of proceedings, lead House manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., announced that they would withdraw Cicilline's statements and that "this is much ado about nothing, because it's not critical in anyway to our case."

    Bradley Cortright February 4, 2021 0 Comments Former President Donald Trump‘s defense team is responding to the Democratic impeachment managers’ invitation for him to testify under oath before or during the Senate’s impeachment trial.  In a letter responding to the lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), Trump attorney Bruce Castor wrote, “We are in receipt of your latest public relations stunt. As you certainly know, there is no such thing as a negative inference in this unconstitutional proceeding.” “Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the Union States, who is now a private citizen,” he continued. “The use of our Constitution to bring a purported impeachment proceeding is much too serious to try to play these games.” Read the letter below: @maggieNYT got a copy of the prompt reply from Trump lawyers, who calls the...

Daniel Cameron, a black Republican official, said on Monday night that he was taking the extraordinary step of publishing the information, given the huge public interest in the case.

    Editor’s note: What follows is an excerpt from Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie’s new book “Trump: America First: The President Succeeds Against All Odds” which will release on Sept. 29 (Pre-order here on Amazon). In the book, Lewandowski and Bossie provide an inside look into President Donald Trump’s presidency and his reelection campaign. The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Democrat congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York, subpoenaed Corey in August 2019. It was supposed to be the first big impeachment hearing of the Mueller Report era. And when we say big, we mean wall-to-wall coverage on every TV channel. Big… We were already inside… As former Hill staffers, we knew how to navigate Capitol Hill without walking through the front door. The networks had fallen victim to what many people have done when dealing with Corey: underestimating him. To do so, however, is at your own peril. Congressman Nadler would...
    All eyes are on Bill Cosby's upcoming appeal in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as it prepares to review his 2018 conviction for sexual assault. This month marks two years since Cosby, 83, was put behind bars over a 2004 encounter with Andrea Constand, a former professional basketball player who worked for his alma mater, Temple University, in Philadelphia, Pa. He has another year to go before he can seek parole. However, he has vowed to serve the full 10-year maximum rather than show remorse for what he calls a consensual encounter. The comedian was convicted of three counts of felony sexual assault based on charges that he drugged and molested Constand after she came to his house for career advice. The five other accusers who testified for the prosecution said they believed he also drugged and sexually assaulted them in the 1980s. CUBA GOODING JR.

    Attorney General Bill Barr plans an aggressive opening statement in his Congressional testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, in which he will dismiss the Russia investigation of Donald Trump as “bogus” and deny any “interference from the White House.” According to a CNN report of his written opening statement, Barr plans to push back hard on the House Democrat-led committee. “Ever since I made it clear that I was going to do everything I could to get to the bottom of the grave abuses involved in the bogus ‘Russiagate’ scandal, many of the Democrats on this Committee have attempted to discredit me by conjuring up a narrative that I am simply the President’s factotum who disposes of criminal cases according to his instructions,” Barr will say. “Judging from the letter inviting me to this hearing, that appears to be your agenda today.” A number of Barr’s recent actions have...

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper testified on Thursday that he had no recollection of receiving any briefings that “included the word bounty,” amid reports claiming Russia offered bounties to Afghan militants for killing U.S. soldiers. During a hearing before the House Armed Services Committee, Esper was asked about the reports. NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER SAYS TRUMP'S CIA BRIEFER DECIDED NOT TO SHARE RUSSIA BOUNTY INTEL “To the best of my recollection, I have not received a briefing that included the word bounty,” Esper said. Esper was then asked where the intelligence on Russian bounties came from, to which he replied: "It was not produced by a DoD intelligence agency." The New York Times first reported that Moscow allegedly offered bounties to Afghan militants to kill U.S. soldiers last month. Fox News also reported last month that multiple intelligence threat streams indicated Russian intelligence operatives offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops.

    'New Yorkers no longer trust the police' after the death of George Floyd and the protests that followed, finds the state's attorney general, Letitia James, in a preliminary report.   A document released yesterday, which focuses on 'New York City Police Department's Response to Demonstrations Following the Death of George Floyd', found that 'too many New Yorkers no longer trust the police to do their jobs effectively and fairly.'  Two weeks of protests erupted following the killing of Floyd, a black man and father-of-one who died while being held down by a Minneapolis police officer as he told them he couldn't breathe 20 times on May 25.   The report, investigating police encounters during widespread protests, does not feature a review on the performance of individual officers, but data provided by the NYPD commissioner revealed fewer than ten officers were disciplined for behavior during the protests, despite there being 2,087 protest-related arrests between May 28...
    Elon Musk has denied an allegation he had a 'three-way affair' with his ex wife Amber Heard, 34, and model Cara Delevingne, 27. It had been claimed in explosive new testimony that Musk and Delevingne had been involved in a secret three-way relationship in 2016.

    The former Justice Department official who essentially created and oversaw special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation offered implicit support in testimony Wednesday for a subsequent review of the origins of that case at the FBI and beyond. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, discussed several issues surrounding the origins of the Russia investigation—including the way in which Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants were sought and approved. DURHAM MOVING 'FULL-THROTTLE' ON RUSSIA PROBE REVIEW Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May 2017 to investigate whether members of the Trump campaign were colluding with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the campaign and the Russians during the 2016 election, though the question of whether Trump obstructed justice was left open in that report. Following Mueller’s investigation, Attorney General Bill Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham...
    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended his actions in the Russia probe during Senate testimony Wednesday -- including his appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller -- while suggesting the FBI should shoulder the blame over since-exposed misconduct related to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants. Rosenstein appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday as the first witness to testify as part of the panel’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. GRAHAM REQUESTS NAMES OF OFFICIALS WHO SOUGHT TO 'UNMASK' TRUMP CAMPAIGN, TRANSITION OFFICIALS Rosenstein, in prepared remarks, noted that “one of the most important matters” during his time at the Justice Department as deputy attorney general was the “investigation of Russian election influence schemes.” “Attorney General Sessions had complied with a legal obligation to recuse himself from that investigation,” Rosenstein is expected to say, referring to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the probe...
    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will find few allies when he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday regarding the origins of the investigation of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Republicans will blame Rosenstein for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses and an aggressive investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that yielded nothing of substance concerning President Trump or his campaign. Democrats will attack Rosenstein for his role in concluding that President Trump did not commit obstruction of justice and ending their dream of an indictment. ROD ROSENSTEIN TESTIFYING ON CAPITOL HILL WEDNESDAY ABOUT RUSSIA PROBE: WHAT TO KNOW Neither of these two views captures the complex reality of Rosenstein’s tenure. In reality, Rosenstein’s decisions helped preserve the integrity of the Justice Department while protecting President Trump from FBI leadership gone rogue and Democrats hell-bent on removing the president from office....
