Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday that their efforts to conduct oversight into his investigation of former President Trump represents a “dangerous usurpation” by Congress that could impinge upon the former president’s rights.
The response from Bragg’s office comes the morning after a grand jury he empaneled to hear evidence voted to indict Trump in connection with efforts to hide a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels by couching them as legal payments.
In a letter sent to three top House Republican chairmen Friday, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office accused GOP lawmakers of engaging in “unlawful political interference” of its ongoing case against former President Donald Trump.
Following reports of Trump’s potential indictment earlier this month, the Republican-led House Judiciary and Oversight committees sent a letter to Bragg demanding that he turn over documents related to his Trump investigation and testify before Congress.
Leslie B. Dubeck, the general counsel for Bragg’s office, fired back at the GOP’s “baseless and inflammatory allegations that our investigation is politically motivated.”
Liberal billionaire George Soros has distanced himself from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg after former President Donald Trump's indictment, saying he's never met Bragg and didn't donate to his campaign.
"As for Alvin Bragg, as a matter of fact I did not contribute to his campaign and I don't know him," Soros told Semafor. "I think some on the right would rather focus on far-fetched conspiracy theories than on the serious charges against the former president."
Soros' comments came after President Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called Bragg "Soros-backed," which has been echoed by many other Republicans. Soros has supported dozens of district attorney candidates across the country in recent years. Last summer, he penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed explaining why he puts his money behind "reform-minded" prosecutors.
The liberal Canadian government is advancing plans to update the country’s “assisted suicide” laws to allow authorities to euthanize children without the need for parental consent.
Assisted suicide and euthanasia have become rapidly accepted in Canada.
The government has continued to lift restrictions on its Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) program.
Initially, it was introduced to give people who were terminally ill an option to prevent then from dying a slow painful death.
Over time, however, the laws have become more relaxed.
Canadians can now apply for euthanasia for a variety of reasons, including minor illnesses or being too poor or homeless.
Following the Twitter censorship of Federalist CEO Sean Davis, several journalists, and a sitting member of Congress who all reported on the “Trans Day Of Vengeance” after the Nashville Shooting, the Media Research Center (MRC) published a shocking study about “free speech” on Twitter. Despite many claims to the contrary, the MRC found the company has become more oppressive since Elon Musk acquired the platform.
According to data from the MRC’s Free Speech America’s CensorTrack.org database, there have been 293 cases of documented censorship since Musk took over from Nov. 4, 2022, through Mar. 4, 2023. This is 67 more cases than the 226 instances reported by CensorTrack.org from pre-Musk Twitter during the same time last year.
The Media Research Center also found Twitter’s methods of censorship recently became more severe. “In 245 of the 293 (84%) documented cases of censorship on CensorTrack.org, Twitter locked users’ accounts, and in nearly all cases users were required to delete the content to regain access to their accounts,” reports the MRC. “Under the old Twitter regime, by contrast, only 136 of the 226 (60%) documented cases of censorship consisted of locked accounts.”
Seven female University of Wyoming students are suing their sorority for inducting a man, arguing that the move violates Kappa Kappa Gamma’s corporate charter and imperils the safety and historic gender exclusivity of the sisterhood.
The plaintiffs, collectively and anonymously referred to as “Jane Doe” in the March complaint obtained by National Review, petitioned the court to order KKG to nullify the transgender-identifying man’s admission and abandon its unauthorized gender-inclusion policy.
“The claim alleges that the leadership of Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity have breached their contract to provide a single sex experience to its members,” Cassie Craven, an attorney representing the seven women in the case, told National Review. “Women are entitled to single sex experiences and single sex spaces. Women’s rights deserve protection.”
Less than a week after the Washington Post published a laughable survey purporting to show an overwhelming majority of people who “transition” away from their biological sex are filled with satisfaction, a transgender person showed just how exuberant her own transition process was by shooting up a Christian grade school.
Tragic doesn’t begin to cover it.
All indications are that 28-year-old Audrey Hale was more than a year into her “transition” living like a man — referring to herself as “Aiden” and using male pronouns — when she blew out the front doors of The Covenant School in Nashville this week, paced through the halls and eventually murdered three 9-year-old children and three adults.
Democrats’ years-long “get Trump” campaign culminated on Thursday when a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict the former president.
Instead of devoting the time to keeping violent criminals off of New York City’s streets, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg recently decided to manufacture justification to go after former President Donald Trump for using his personal lawyer at the time to pay $130,000 to on-screen prostitute Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election.
If Bragg gets his way, Trump could face jail time over a case that Bragg, the Department of Justice, Bragg’s predecessor, and the Federal Election Commission previously decided not to pursue.
The war on Free Speech and the First Amendment is accelerating with the introduction of a supposedly bi-partisan anti-TikTok bill. If enacted, the government would have dictatorial power to shut down websites, impose harsh prison sentences and huge fines. The Restrict Act must not be allowed to pass! ⁃ TN Editor
The RESTRICT Act, introduced by Sens. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tom Thune (R-SD), is aimed at blocking or disrupting transactions and financial holdings linked to foreign adversaries that pose a risk to national security, however the language of the bill could be used to give the US government enormous power to punish free speech.
Warner, a longtime opponent of free speech who, as Michael Krieger pointed out in 2018 (and confirmed in the Twitter Files) pushed for the ‘weaponization’ of big tech, crafted the RESTRICT act to “ake swift action against technology companies suspected of cavorting with foreign governments and spies, to effectively vanish their products from shelves and app stores when the threat they pose gets too big to ignore,” according to Wired.
Bad actors listed in the bill are; China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Venezuela.
In reality, the RESTRICT Act has very little to do with TikTok and everything to do with controlling online content.
In very specific terms a lot of U.S. w
“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American,” DeSantis wrote.
“The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” he added.
The CDC found itself hoist with its own petard by making 25 basic statistical and numerical errors related to COVID-19, particularly with regard to children, while purporting to expose COVID vaccine misinformation, according to an analysis led by University of California San Francisco epidemiologists.
The preprint, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, documented 20 errors that "exaggerated the severity of the COVID-19 situation" and three that "simultaneously exaggerated and downplayed" severity, while one each was neutral or exaggerated vaccine risks.
More than half were from 2022, but nearly as many were made in the first two months of 2023 as in all of 2021, they found. Several errors were related to the agency's COVID data tracker, which failed to align with its National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the CDC corrected at least in part 13 of the 16 errors brought to its attention.
After being indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, former President Donald Trump is expected to be arraigned in court on Tuesday, a law enforcement source has told Fox News.
Judge Juan Merchan is the trial judge presiding over the case, which stems from District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation into alleged hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. Trump is scheduled to be arraigned at 2:15 p.m. in Merchan's courtroom on the 15th floor at 100 Centre Street in New York City.
In addition to Trump's personal attorney Joe Tacopina, a second source has confirmed that Trump has made arrangements with the district attorney's legal team to surrender without handcuffs. Detectives with the DA's office will handle the arrest.
Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs vetoed a bill Thursday that would have prohibited people from setting up tents or tarps in public areas. Senate Bill 1024 would have stopped anyone from putting up makeshift shelters on sidewalks, alleyways, streets, parkways and other public rights-of-way.
The veto comes as Phoenix is dealing with rising homelessness. A Maricopa County Superior judge has ordered the city to clean up a homeless encampment that spans nearly 10 blocks in the downtown area.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is moving forward with the indictment of former President Donald Trump, but legal hurdles remain to get the case past an honest judge, former federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax.
"I think [Trump] gets out of it if we still have justice in New York, and I do have confidence in a number of the judges in New York. It's different than some other places," Giuliani said on Thursday night's "Greg Kelly Reports." "The case is really, really dismissible for about 10 obvious reasons, not the least of which is it violates the statute of limitations.
"The misdemeanor was not intended for nondisclosure agreements that are contracts between people that are perfectly legitimate. There at least one million of them probably in existence in New York.
"The latching it on to the federal crime of illegal campaign contributions ... first of all, it's been determined that it's not an illegal campaign contribution. It's a personal expenditure."
