    Donald Trump will deliver a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida next weekend in his first public appearance since leaving the White House, according to multiple reports. Trump is expected to deliver a keynote speech on Sunday February 28, the final day of the conference, the New York Post reported.  It will be the first time Trump has addressed his supporters -- or spoken publicly at all -- since leaving the presidency on January 20. Stripped of his Twitter account, he has remained uncharacteristically quiet as President Joe Biden took office, and as he faced a post-presidency impeachment trial in the Senate.  Developing story, check back for updates. 
    Mike van der Veen elicited a big laugh from Senate Democrats sitting before him during the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Unfortunately for the criminal defense attorney, the laughter was not offered with him, but at him. At issue is whether or not witnesses should be deposed in the trial to assess whether or not Trump is guilty of inciting the deadly insurrection led by his supporters on the Capitol on January 6th. A bombshell report surfaced Friday night that sourced a number of GOP members of Congress revealed a phone call between Trump and House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, in which Trump is said to have pushed back on calling support for Capitol Police getting swarmed by a base of crazed Trump supporters convinced the election and had been stolen and looking to, among other things, hang Vice President Mike Pence.

    A 90-year old Los Angeles resident has taken out two quarter-page newspaper ads to tell AT&T's CEO that his internet service is too slow.  Aaron Epstein spent $10,000 for the two ads to be featured in two separate editions of The Wall Street Journal on February 3 - despite friends and family urging him to use social media to get his message out.  But Epstein - who has been an AT&T customer since 1960 - does not have Twitter or Facebook, and decided to take a more old fashioned approach in order to get the attention of the telecommunication company's boss, John T. Stankey.  Epstein settled on taking out an ad in the Dallas, Texas edition of The Wall Street Journal, where the company is based.  He also placed an ad in the New York City edition of the same publication, hoping it would attract the attention of investors.   ...

    A Pennsylvania District Attorney has been accused of sexually assaulting at least five female clients and trading legal services for sex while they were his clients. Chad Michael Salsman, 44, a prosecutor in Bradford County, was charged on Wednesday with numerous crimes relating to the accusations. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement that charges included three counts of sexual assault, five counts of indecent assault, witness intimidation, obstruction of justice and promoting prostitution. Salsman, elected in November 2019, manipulated several women into unwanted sexual acts and sexually assaulted them, prosecutors allege. Witnesses have also claimed that he would use music or a noise cancelling machine to drown out the sounds coming from his office.  After the Republican DA forced them into unwanted sex acts, he then directed them into his private bathroom to 'clean up', according to a criminal complaint.  Complaints says once they had done so with...
    Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., took former President Trump to task for refusing to testify at his second impeachment trial that many Republicans and Trump’s legal team have called a farce. Jason Miller, a senior adviser for Trump, told Fox News that his boss will "not testify in an unconstitutional proceeding." Trump’s lawyers denounced the request as a "public relations stunt." PSAKI ACCUSED OF MAKING FUN OF THE SPACE FORCE, REFUSES TO APOLOGIZE Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, issued a statement later Thursday and said any "official accused of inciting armed violence against the government of the United States should welcome the chance to testify openly and honestly—that is, if the official had a defense." The impeachment trial starts Feb. 9. Trump, the first president to be impeached twice, is charged with inciting an insurrection on Jan. 6, when a mob of his supporters broke into the Capitol to interrupt...
    Donald Trump endangered the lives of all members of Congress when he aimed a mob of supporters 'like a loaded cannon' at the U.S. Capitol, House Democrats said Tuesday in making their most detailed case yet for why the former president should be convicted and permanently barred from office. The legal brief forcefully links Trump's efforts to overturn the results of the presidential election to the deadly January 6 riot at the Capitol. It claims the former president bears 'unmistakable' blame for actions that directly threatened the underpinnings of American democracy.  'His conduct endangered the life of every single Member of Congress, jeopardized the peaceful transition of power and line of succession, and compromised our national security,' the Democratic managers of the impeachment case wrote. 'This is precisely the sort of constitutional offense that warrants disqualification from federal office.' The legal brief lays out for the first time the arguments...

    WASHINGTON (AP/WJZ) — With the House set to impeach, President Donald Trump is blaming Democratic congressional foes for “tremendous anger” in the country and last week’s deadly attack on the Capitol by his supporters after he urged them on their way. The embattled president, in his first remarks to reporters since last week’s attack, took no responsibility Tuesday for the deadly mob invasion of the building but also said he wanted “no violence.” Trump defended his fiery rally remarks to a protest crowd last week as “totally appropriate,” and he showed no remorse for the following attack, the most serious and deadly domestic incursion at the Capitol in the nation’s history. Trump’s close ally House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke with the President about the Capitol riots on Monday during a heated phone call. According to CBS News, Trump repeated the conspiracy theory that antifa was to blame for the...
    President-elect Joe Biden on Monday said those that 'engaged in sedition and threatened people's lives' during last week's attack on Capitol Hill should be held accountable.  Asked if President Donald Trump had been among those engaging in sedition, Biden said: 'I've been clear that President Trump should not be in office. Period.' The House is expected to impeach Trump this week but the Senate - given that it doesn't return to Washington D.C. until January 19th - is unlikely to tackle the issue before Trump leaves office, meaning the early days of Biden's presidency would be taken up with his predecessor's trial.   But Biden said he has the 'hope and expectation' that the Senate could hold an impeachment trial while confirming his Cabinet nominees and working on an additional COVID relief package.  'Look, my priority is to get first and foremost the stimulus bill passed,' he said. 'I had a discussion...
