Cold Desperation – Manafort Tries to Sue Mueller!

OK…So here is the situation. The Law has caught you5 miles on the US side of the Border with 4 kilos of coke in your backpack. Your first attempt at ”splaining” your way out of jail involves declaring with your best straight face that “you didn’t know the coke was in there” falls on deaf ears shortly after they find your passport tucked in a pocket inside the bag…Next to the coke.

As the prosecutor sits down with your lawyer to discuss whether the sentence will “only” be 20 years, or the  possibility you may ever again see daylight unfiltered by steel bars, you start considering which of you recently “no good friends” to flip on…

Except if you happen t be a wealth, white, Trump related “semi” millionaire, who owes half of the GDP of Columbia of coke money to banks through various under the table loans, and money laundering deals…

You sue not only the prosecutor but the Cops for having the temerity to arrest you for such “trivial crimes” in the first place!

Because, unlike in the real world, you have better lawyers than even your Mob Boss, the Chumph.

Uhhhhhhh…”Manny”…Good Luck with that. Because unless you can prove a Federal Prosecutor acted illegally an/or for some illicit financial gain, and not just doing his job…

You are shit outta luck with that one.

Paul Manafort is suing Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein

President Trump’s former 2016 campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, is suing Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to a complaint filed Wednesday in federal court.

Manafort argues that Rosenstein didn’t have authority to appoint Mueller as special counsel, which occurred after Mr. Trump fired James Comey as FBI director. The complaint claims that the appointment was an “abuse of discretion” and therefore, he says that anything resulting from Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election should be deemed null and void. The complaint then says that Mueller’s investigation and the indictment against Manafort goes beyond the scope of his authority, and demands that Mueller “should be enjoined from further investigating any alleged conduct by Mr. Manafort that is unrelated to and predates his involvement with the Trump campaign…” It goes on to say that Manafort should be awarded injunctive relief.

Manafort and Rick Gates, Manafort’s former business associate, were indicted by a federal grand jury in the investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election in October. And another Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty the same day to making false statements to the FBI. Toward the end of 2017, Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election was just heating up. Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI.

Manafort joined Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign in March 2016 and served in that role until August 2016. The FBI raided his home last summer, even picking the lock while he was at home asleep.

Rosenstein had the authority to appoint Mueller as special counsel because of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia probe. Rosenstein also gave Mueller broad discretion in his investigation.

A spokesman for the Department of Justice said, “The lawsuit is frivolous but the defendant is entitled to file whatever he wants.” The Special Counsel declined comment.

The Daily Republican Molester

Raping Child Molesters hiding under “god”…And of course the Molester in Chief.

There Republicans are committing crime way more heinous than that some Democrats are being forced to resign for. And they are committing rape and sodomy of children…Under the name of the Lord.

 

GOP lawmaker accused of rape sings about baby Jesus at press conference before calling victim a liar

 

Kentucky state Rep. Dan Johnson (R) on Tuesday denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl.

Maranda Richmond told Louisville Public Media that when Johnson was her preacher years ago, he sexually assaulted after she went to sleep at a New Year’s party.

Louisville Public Media detailed Richmond’s encounter with Johnson that night.

That night, she woke after settling in on the sofa. She was groggy, unfocused. But she saw Johnson kneeling above her. He gave her a kiss on the head. She thought it fatherly, nothing out of the ordinary, simply one last goodnight gesture.

Then he started to stroke her arm. He slid his hands up, under her shirt and bra, and groped her. He stuck his tongue in her mouth. Then, he forced his hands down her pants, underneath her underwear, and penetrated her with his finger.

She begged her pastor to stop and tried to force him off, quietly. She remembers not wanting to awaken Sarah. But Johnson was a big man, roughly twice her weight.

He told her she’d like it. She said no, she didn’t. She pleaded with him: go away, go away.

Johnson held a press conference in the pulpit of Heart of Fire Church on Tuesday to counter Richmond’s accusations.

The press conference began with Johnson and his supporters singing a Christian hymn about baby Jesus.

“O come, all ye faithful / Joyful and triumphant / O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem,” they sang. “Come and behold Him / Born the King of Angels!”

He then went on to deny the allegations.

“There’s no perfect people,” Johnson said. “This allegation concerning this lady, this young girl, absolutely has no merit”

“I don’t want to blast this girl, I have compassion for her,” the lawmaker insisted.

Johnson connected his case to the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Donald Trump.

“It is the season. Last election it seemed to be racism. This election it seems to be sexual impropriety,” Johnson complained. “People want to go back over my whole entire life.”

The lawmaker added: “There’s no reason I would resign”

Religious right leader accused of sexually abusing teenage boy — and claiming it was a God-sanctioned secret

A former Texas state judge and lawmaker has been accused of sexually abusing a young man for several decades starting when the boy was just 14, according to a lawsuit filed in October in Harris County.

The lawsuit alleges that Paul Pressler, a former justice on the 14th Court of Appeals who served in the Texas state house from 1957–59, sexually assaulted Duane Rollins, his former bible study student, several times per month over a period of years. According to the filing, the abuse started in the late 1970s and continued less frequently after Rollins left Houston for college in 1983.

In a November court filing, Pressler “generally and categorically [denied] each and every allegation” in Rollins’ petition.

The abuse, which consisted of anal penetration, took place in Pressler’s master bedroom study, the suit alleges. According to the lawsuit, Pressler told Rollins he was “special” and that the sexual contact was their God-sanctioned secret.

Pressler is a leading figure on the religious right in Texas and was a key player in the “conservative resurgence” of Southern Baptism, a movement in the 1970s and 1980s that aimed to oust liberals and moderates from the church’s organizational structure. Pressler’s wife Nancy, his former law partner Jared Woodfill, Woodfill Law Firm, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary President Paige Patterson, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and First Baptist Church of Houston are also named as defendants in the suit.

Rollins seeks damages of over $1 million.

When asked about the suit, Ted Tredennick, Pressler’s attorney, pointed to Rollins’ record, which is peppered with arrests on DUIs and other charges over the last several decades.

“Mr. Rollins is clearly a deeply troubled man, with a track record of multiple felonies and incarceration, and it is the height of irresponsibility that anyone would present such a bizarre and frivolous case — much less report on it,” Tredennick said. He would not give any further comment or respond to specific questions.

Rollins and his lawyer, Daniel Shea, say his past legal troubles stemmed from behavior fueled by alcohol and drug addictions sparked by the childhood sexual abuse. In 1998, Rollins was jailed for 10 years on burglary charges. Pressler advocated for Rollins to receive parole in 2000, when he was first eligible, and then again in 2002. In his 2002 letter to the parole board, Pressler pledged to employ Rollins and be “personally involved in every bit of Duane’s life with supervision and control.”

Woodfill called the accusations against Pressler “absolutely false” and described the lawsuit as “an attempt to extort money.” He also said he plans to file counter charges against Rollins and his lawyer for a “frivolous and harassing lawsuit.”

Shea said Pressler previously settled with Rollins over a 2004 battery charge for an incident in a Dallas hotel room. That settlement is not public, Shea said, but reference is made to such an agreement in recent court filings.

Shea said that though Rollins filed that assault charge more than a decade ago, he had a “suppressed memory” of the sexual abuse until he made an outcry statement to a prison psychologist in November 2015. Harvey Rosenstock, a psychiatrist who has been working with Rollins since August 2016, wrote in a letter included in the suit that Rollins is a “reliable historian for the childhood sexual trauma to which he was repeatedly and chronically subjected.”

Pressler was President George H.W. Bush’s pick to lead the Office of Government Ethics  in 1989, but the administration ultimately ruled Pressler out after an FBI background investigation. News reports from the time suggest that Pressler was dismissed due to unspecified ethics issues.

Then we have the Chumph, who now has 20 women claimng he sexually molested them –

Flynn Flips on the Chumph

It is official now. Flynn will be testifying against the Chumph and his family.

Not real surprising as Mueller has enough on Flynn and Flynn Jr. to put them away for 100 years.

Michael Flynn Just Flipped on Team Trump

After being charged with lying to the FBI, the former national security adviser said he would cooperate with Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia probe.

Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to the charge he misled FBI agents during a January 2017 interview after being asked about conversations with the Russia’s ambassador to the United States.

The next step: working with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office to go after his onetime confederates in Team Trump.

“My guilty plea and agreement and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and our country,” said the disgraced retired three-star Army general in a statement after he left a District of Columbia courtroom. “I accept full responsibility for my actions.”

The cooperation of such a senior White House official with a criminal probe raises the stakes substantially for Trump, who has raged against an investigation he has insisted is baseless. And the next shoe to drop, legally, could fall on his son-in-law Jared Kushner, whom Mueller has reportedly interviewed this month.

While he served as President Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn denied asking Ambassador Sergey Kislyak for Russia to “refrain from escalating in response to [American] sanctions” the Obama administration had imposed on Moscow for meddling in the 2016 presidential election and that he asked Kislyak to delay a United Nations Security Council vote on Israeli settlements.

Choice for Alabama US Senate Seat – The Democrat or the Child Molester

Going to get interesting December 2nd in Alabama where a special election to fill Jefferson Davis Sessions old seat has come down to a runoff between a Democrat Doug Jones, and Republican Holier Than Thou Accused Child Molester.

The problem?

Moore (Molester/rapist) cannot withdraw from the race under Alabama law.

Worse for Republicans, it doesn’t appear anyone else can enter the race at this stage.

Going to be interesting as to how many of Alabama’s evangelicals can sell out their “religion” and vote for Moore.

You Honor – Looks like Holy Roller Republican Roy Moore has problem with violation of Article VII, and IX

 

Roy Moore Can’t Be Taken Off the Ballot

Senate Republicans are calling for him to drop out if the explosive allegations against him are true. It wouldn’t be so simple.

Several Republicans in the Senate, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to exit the race if reports of sexual contact with a minor are true. But it wouldn’t be quite so simple for Moore to drop out of the race.

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that four women have said Moore pursued them when they were teenagers, including one who was 14 when Moore, then 32, allegedly initiated a sexual encounter with her. That quickly prompted McConnell and others to say Moore should step aside if the allegations are valid.

But Alabama law prohibits a candidate from withdrawing within 76 days before the election. The runoff between Moore, who beat incumbent Luther Strange in the Republican primary, and Democrat Doug Jones is scheduled for December 12. And Moore’s name will be on the ballot.

Alabama law prohibits withdrawal of candidate from election within 76 days of the election (Ala. Code 17-6-21(c); accord 17-13-23): http://alisondb.legislature.state.al.us/alison/codeofalabama/1975/17-6-21.htm 

Moore is best known as the controversial state supreme court judge who was removed from the bench after refusing to take down a courthouse monument to the Ten Commandments. He has vehemently denied the allegations of pursuing the teenagers, saying they are “the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”

Black Man Attacked By 5 White Supremacists in Charlottesville – Felony Charge for Fighting Back

Let’s see…Young black guy standing in a garage watching the “festivities” between protesters in Charlottesville a month ago, get jumped by a gang of KKK/neo-Nazi types, beaten with stick and flagpoles…And the black guy gets charges with a “Felony” for defending himself by striking one of his attackers.

Yeah…Must have been because the half dozen KKK/neo-nazi types were so vastly outnumbered by one black guy.

What possibly could be wrong with this picture?

Black man attacked at white nationalist rally in Charlottesville faces felony charge

A black man brutally beaten at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville is now facing a felony charge related to the August attack.

A local magistrate on Monday issued an arrest warrant for DeAndre Harris on an unlawful wounding charge after an accuser, whom police did not identify, claimed to have been injured by the 20-year-old during the brawl, authorities told local media.

S. Lee Merritt, a civil attorney for Harris, told The Washington Post the charge was “clearly retaliatory” and described the accuser as a member of a white supremacist group. He maintained that Harris did not instigate the fight.

“We find it highly offensive and upsetting, but what’s more jarring is that he’s been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him,” he said.

Merritt added that it was “highly unusual” for the warrant to come from a magistrate rather than police, and suggested that the accuser had previously tried to implicate Harris in the violence without success. He said his client would turn himself into police in the coming days.

In a statement provided to WVIR, the Charlottesville Police Department said the alleged victim went to the magistrate’s office in person to explain what happened. After discussing the accuser’s story with a detective, the magistrate issued the warrant.

Harris was marching in opposition to the rally on Aug. 12 when a scuffle broke out between a group of white supremacists and several counterprotesters at a downtown parking garage.

Videos from the scene showed a white supremacist thrusting a Confederate flag pole at a counterprotester and Harris swinging a flashlight at the man. Six white supremacists then descended on Harris, kicking him and striking him with wooden sticks as he lay curled up on the pavement, as The Post has reported.

Images of the brawl and Harris’s bloodied face went viral, prompting a frenzied campaign on social media to identify his attackers.

Two men were later arrested in the attack on Harris, who said he suffered a concussion, a head laceration that required 10 staples and other injuries. Both were charged with malicious wounding, a felony…

Georgia Sheriff and Staff Charged With Sexual Crimes For Body Searching Entire High School

This one happened a few months ago. A Worth County Georgia Sheriff and his Deputies showed up at a local High School and proceeded to body search the entire student body – supposedly fr drugs. All 900 of the School’s students were searched. No drugs were found. There was no Search Warrant, no “Probable Cause”…Just the Sheriff’s desire to “lay hands” on a few High School Students.

The Sheriff and two of his Deputies have now been criminally charged.

Preventing this type of shit is why Black Lives Matter was formed. Maybe if these right-wing fascist asshles shove their figers up enough white girl’s woman parts under the guise of the law, some of the racist types who lie about, and hate BLM will finally wake up. Bet you won’t see mention of this on Faux News.

First, the original story –

Next – the Law finally catches up with the law –

Ga. sheriff indicted for sexual battery in high school drug search

A south Georgia grand jury indicted Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby on Tuesday for sexual battery, false imprisonment and violation of oath of office after he ordered a school-wide search of hundreds of high school students. Deputies allegedly touched girls vaginas and breasts and groped boys in their groin area during the search at the Worth County High School April 14.

Two of Hobby’s deputies were also indicted Tuesday in connection with the case.

The controversial search drew national attention because of how the body search of students was conducted under the guise of a drug search, but produced no drugs or arrests.

The Worth County indictment accuses Hobby of one count of violating his oath of office and two counts of false imprisonment — all felonies charges. He was also indicted on one count of sexual battery, a misdemeanor.

Hobby’s attorney Norman Crowe Jr. said the sheriff was at the school, but did not search students. He said jurors at trial will get to hear the sheriff’s side of the story.

“The sheriff’s position is that he’s not guilty,” Crowe said. “He’s committed no crime.”

Deputy Tyler Turner was indicted on one felony count of violation of his oath of office and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery. Deputy Deidra Whiddon was indicted for one felony count of violation of her oath of office.

District Attorney Paul Bowden said warrants had not yet been issued for the arrest of the sheriff and his deputies, but he expected that as early as Thursday. He said he is preparing a letter to Gov. Nathan Deal to outline the charges against the sheriff. Deal has authority to suspend the sheriff as he did recently with DeKalb Sheriff Jeff Mann and Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman.
