Graham report:

    Civil rights groups are calling for immediate changes within the Prince George’s County Police Department a day after a judge made public the findings of an independent investigation into officers’ claims of racism and retaliation in the department. As their faces flashed across a Zoom call grid, community activists, leaders and family members who were part of the effort to get the report’s findings made public took turns describing why they are joining together again to make demands of the department. The expert report by Michael Graham — a former senior officer for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department — was written in connection with a lawsuit against the department by the Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association and others. It was ordered unredacted earlier this month by a federal judge in Maryland. One demand, said Nikki Owens: “Clean house and install a new admin for the Prince George’s County Police Department, removing everyone at the...
    A new unredacted report details allegations of systemic racism inside the Prince George’s County Police Department. The expert report by Michael Graham — a former senior officer for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department — was written in connection with a lawsuit against the department by the Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association and others. It was ordered unredacted earlier this month by a federal judge in Maryland. Among Graham’s findings … The department’s policies for handling racial harassment and discrimination complaints are “inadequate.” Leadership “appears to have made a deliberate choice not to track or monitor its performance concerning these matters.” Any misconduct allegation is “treated differently when the charges are made against white officers.” Graham wrote that the department’s policies for handling discrimination complaints require employees to report within the chain of command — and failed to assure confidentiality. It’s a “flawed” approach, he wrote, because the...
    Reuters February 13, 2021 0 Comments A Georgia prosecutor plans to examine a phone call between U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and Georgia’s secretary of state as part of a criminal investigation into whether former President Donald Trump or his allies broke state law in trying to influence the results of the election, the Washington Post reported on Friday.

    Bradley Cortright January 18, 2021 0 Comments In his last full day in office, President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to issue a final slew of around 100 pardons and commutations. CNN reported that White House officials met on Sunday to hammer out the details of the final list of pardons, which they expect the president to announce on Tuesday. Trump’s term will end at noon on January, 20. The network reports that the president is planning to pardon “a mix of criminal justice reform-minded pardons” and political allies. Additionally, aides told the network they believe that this will be the last list of pardons from Trump unless he issues pardons for himself and his family members. Trump has reportedly considered granting himself a pardon. However, advisers have urged the president to avoid such due to fears it may make him look guilty. Some of the individuals who stormed the U.S. Capitol on January...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania prosecutors want a judge to order former Penn State president Graham Spanier to begin serving a county jail sentence for endangering children by the way he responded to a complaint that Jerry Sandusky had attacked a boy on campus. The attorney general’s office wrote in a Monday letter to Judge John Boccabella that no legal impediment prevents him from enforcing the minimum sentence of two months in jail, followed by two months of house arrest. Senior Deputy Attorney General Patrick Schulte told the judge he would support allowing Spanier work release with medical furloughs, and suggested the judge could order Spanier to report at some future date to lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure. Spanier, 72, was convicted by a jury of misdemeanor child endangerment for his handling of a report that Sandusky, a former football team assistant coach, had attacked a boy in a...

    Joe Biden's longtime friend and colleague Sen. Chris Coons may be key to the president-elect being able to work with Senate Republicans. Coons, 57, has a unique relationship with many GOP lawmakers, working closely with them even in a highly partisan climate. During an interview with Politico, the Delaware Democrat said he hopes to help Biden in the Senate, though he would have been open to a position within the administration. Coons was a top contender for Biden's Secretary of State, a post eventually given to Tony Blinken. "I can’t say I’m not disappointed to not be joining the administration," Coons said. "But, you know, a week later, I'm really optimistic that I’ll have the opportunity to be centrally involved." Coons, who refers to his Senate colleagues as "my family," has been open about working with lawmakers across the aisle, and has worked to strengthen his relationship with many,...
    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger claimed that some Republicans, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham, had asked him amid a statewide ballot recount whether Raffensperger had the ability to exclude legally cast ballots, according to the Washington Post. Raffensperger, a Republican, described facing pressure from within his party about voting results and the security of the election in Georgia, which President-elect Joe Biden narrowly won by approximately 14,000 votes, the Post reported.

    According to a recent report, the Charlotte Hornets could potentially make a move for Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul, whose name has been mentioned in various trade rumors and proposed transactions in recent weeks. On Thursday, Bleacher Report‘s Andy Bailey published a list of trade ideas for Paul, including one that would send him to the Hornets in exchange for veteran wingman Nicolas Batum, point guard Devonte’ Graham, and a 2022 first-round pick. As noted, Batum, who averaged only 3.6 points per game last season, was included in the proposed transaction for salary-matching purposes. The Frenchman is reportedly expected to opt into the final year of his contract, which will pay him $27.1 million in the 2020-21 campaign. As further explained, Graham would be the centerpiece of the hypothetical deal, considering he enjoyed a breakout season last year with 18.2 points, 7.5 assists, and 3.5 three-point shots made...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham will release a report on his inquiry into the Russia investigation that will warrant indictments, according to a top Republican senator. Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, insisted on Sunday that Durham's team remains very active even as his investigation has fallen out of the spotlight after it became clear in recent weeks that there would not be any more developments before Election Day. "Hillary Clinton in July trying to cook up a plan to link Trump to Russia in 2016. In September of 2016, she tried to attach Trump to Russia, to deal with her email problem to deflect," Graham said on Fox News to host Maria Bartiromo, referring to an unverified Russian report on Clinton that was declassified. "We’ve learned there was Russian collusion, but it was between the Clinton campaign and it was between Russia," the South Carolina Republican added....

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he has had a “serious talk” with fellow Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein following last week’s Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “I’ve had a long and serious talk with Senator Feinstein. That’s all I’m going to say about it right now,” Schumer told reporters at a news conference, The Washington Post reported. Feinstein, the 87-year-old senior senator from California, serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the panel before which Barrett appeared. After the hearings concluded, Feinstein faced a torrent of criticism from Democrats and others on the left over her line of questioning of Barrett – criticism that appeared to intensify last Thursday after Feinstein was seen sharing a hug with her longtime Republican colleague, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who chairs the committee. Several critics called upon Feinstein to give up her role...

    Getty The NFL might treat everyone to a Week 1 showdown between intrastate rivals featuring Carson Wentz and the Eagles versus Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. The Eagles and Steelers will renew their cross-state rivalry on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. It will be the 80th meeting between them with Philadelphia leading the all-time series: 48-28-3. How about that? Of course, the Steelers have six Super Bowl rings to the Eagles’ one. Be that as it may, it’s an underrated rivalry and (don’t laugh) could be a 2020 Super Bowl preview — if, and only if, Philly gets their “underdog” mojo back and proves last week’s win wasn’t just a fluke.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham’s race to hold onto his seat in the one-time conservative stronghold of South Carolina has now been labeled a toss-up race by the Cook Political Report. Cook Political Report, which is looked to for nonpartisan election analysis, recently changed its outlook on the South Carolina seat from “leans Republican” to “toss up.” Cook calls the race the most  "surprising race" of the year. Graham, the incumbent Republican senator, is going up against Democratic upstart Jaime Harrison. "It's a jump ball at this point," one South Carolina Republican strategist told Cook. "Jaime is peaking at exactly the right time, and he's got a deluge of money. [Harrison] is blocking every pass there is from Republicans." Harrison and Graham are scheduled to debate Friday evening.

    Roger Sollenberger October 8, 2020 2:47AM (UTC) Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has lost the slim edge he once held in his re-election bid in the wake of his first debate against Democratic rival Jaime Harrison, according to the analysts at Cook Political Report. On Wednesday, the election monitor shifted the race's outlook from "lean Republican" to "toss-up." Cook calls the race the contest the most "surprising race" of the year, and it characterizes Harrison, a quiet political veteran who put his chops on national display for the first time in last Saturday's heated debate, as "perhaps Democrats' best recruit and a fundraising behemoth." : "It's a jump ball at this point," one South Carolina Republican strategist told Cook.

    Jaime Harrison and Lindsey Graham debate earlier this month. What seemed just about impossible a year ago could be a very different story today. The Cook Political Report on Wednesday called the South Carolina Senate race between Republican Lindsey Graham and Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison a “toss up.” For real. “Even Democrats in and outside of the Palmetto State are surprised such a typically red state is truly in play,” The Cook Political Report said. “Harrison has made this race about character and in other Democratic ads they turn the tables and paint Graham as part of the ‘swamp,’ and that seems to be working.” And Lindsey deserves it—no other Republican shed their skin and showed their true colors quite like this one-time Trump critic turned sycophant. Let’s send Lindsey Graham home. Give $2 right now to kick Sen. Mitch McConnell and his caucus of Trump enablers to the curb. The Cook Political...
    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham could be in trouble on Election Day. With roughly 27 days until the Nov. 3 election, the Republican lawmaker, who was first elected to the Senate in 2002, is now in a "toss-up" race against Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, according to the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, which is dedicated to tracking and polling political campaigns. The shift from "lean Republican" on Wednesday comes nearly five months after the website changed the contest rating from "solid" red to to "likely Republican," and about two months after they altered it from the latter to "Lean Republican win," underscoring how Harrison has made the race competitive. Harrison, the former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, has out-raised and out-spent Graham for much of the election cycle, and he has a higher favorability rating than the incumbent senator. Harrison has spent or reserved more than $60...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg chided the Senate in 2016 for failing to fill Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court seat until after Election Day — in contrast to her own deathbed plea that it now wait until after the 2020 vote to replace her. Ginsburg, 87, who died from pancreatic cancer on Friday, reportedly told her granddaughter Clara Spera that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Four years earlier, Fox News noted, she had a different take. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year,” Ginsburg told the New York Times in 2016 when she urged the Senate to do “their job” and consider President Obama’s court nominee Merrick Garland. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, refused to consider Garland for the court, saying that the next president, not a...
    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is under pressure to decide whether to hold hearings for another Donald Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Raw Story reported. “Graham is an interesting situation due to the timing, as there’s a good chance Republicans will lose control of the Senate in January,” the report read. Mitch McConnell previously refused to hold hearings during an election year when Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland in 2016 following the death of Antonin Scalia. On Friday evening, these sentiments were echoed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” According to The Washington Post, McConnell has claimed to be in support of confirming a Trump nominee in the case of a 2020 vacancy.

Wait, there’s more good news. Nose tackle Javon Hargrave (pectoral strain, hamstring) saw “limited” action and reps, along with defensive end Brandon Graham (concussion) who returned to the field in a “limited” capacity. There is a growing feeling around the team that the Eagles’ top pass rusher will play. As I reported yesterday, I’m told Brandon Graham is expected to come out of protocol most likely tomorrow and is expected to...
    "Trump lied. People died." This was the hot smear from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., after the first snippets of tape were released from Bob Woodward’s new anti-Trump book, "Rage." The president told Woodward back in March that he wanted to downplay the coronavirus so people wouldn't panic, even though he said he'd been told it was an airborne threat. Predictably echoing Schumer, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough dug into the mud bucket: "Donald Trump says he didn't want Americans to panic. No, he just wanted to sit by and watch them die."

    Brad Reed September 7, 2020 9:55AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story A five-year-old tweet from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is getting renewed attention amid reports that President Donald Trump once disparaged dead American soldiers as "losers" and "suckers." The tweet in question came shortly after Trump attacked the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for getting captured and tortured by enemy forces during the Vietnam War, and it slammed the future president for showing no appreciation for the sacrifices made by service members. : "At the heart of [Trump's] statement is a lack of respect for those who have served," he wrote. "A disqualifying characteristic to be president." In the years since the tweet, however, Graham has evolved to become one of Trump's most loyal defenders, despite the fact that the president has continued attacking McCain even after his passing in 2018.
