President Trump issued a commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence Friday shortly after the D. C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected an emergency motion to delay Stone’s prison report date scheduled for July 14 to September 3.
Stone, age 67, cited in his motion his medical condition and the 20 positive cases of Covid-19 among prisoners and staff at the prison facility in Jesup, Georgia, where only 45 were tested. Stone also cited numerous cases where prisoners were either released early from prison or whose entry were delayed because of the pandemic, including attorney Michael Avenatti, Paul Manafort, and Michael Cohen. Two sex offenders and child pornographers were also released from prison.
“President Trump waited until the court proceedings were exhausted to issue the commutation after seeing that Stone was being treated differently from others and citing the corrupt Mueller investigation,” said Paul Kamenar, attorney for the National Legal and Policy … Read More ➡
That will likely be the best result, rather than seeing the Missouri Senator’s missive produce any meaningful change in how the league manages itself.
Hawley called out Silver and the NBA over its decision to permit its players – more than 80 percent of whom are black – to replace the names on the backs of their jerseys with messaging that for the most part fits the term “social justice.” That is, players can opine just as long as they don’t advocate for the welfare of police officers. Or for victims of Chinese oppression.
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s new husband Tim Mynett continues to be the largest recipient of her campaign spending. During the first quarter of 2020, Mynett’s consulting firm, the E Street Group, received $292,814. The couple was married in March.
Omar’s second quarter report is due July 15.
In the third quarter of 2019, Mynett’s firm received $146,713. In the fourth quarter it received $217,000. Since 2018, when Mynett started working for Omar, his firm has received a total of $878,930.65.
In a Complaint to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on August 28, 2019, NLPC alleged that Omar made personal use of campaign funds by reimbursing Mynett’s expenses while he traveled around the country with her.
According to the Complaint, “It appears that Respondent Mynett’s travel as reported by Ilhan for Congress may have been unrelated, or only partially related, to Omar’s campaign. If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s … Read More ➡
It’s called “the blue wall of silence,” that seemingly impenetrable code of honor among cops who cover for fellow officers suspected of breaking the law. For decades, this code has been scrutinized, but rarely as much as right now in the wake of the videotaped death of a black suspect, George Floyd, while in the custody of Minneapolis police. In addition to triggering demonstrations and riots, the incident, less overtly, has caused many people to raise the possibility that unions representing cops are part of the problem. Critics argue that police unions do more to shield members from accountability than promote good community relations. While riots and calls for the abolition of police forces are indefensible, there are legitimate concerns that police unions are doing more harm than good.
There are currently about 700,000 law enforcement officers in this country, most of whom belong to … Read More ➡
