Citing Trump’s Tweets, Judge Restricts Access To Stone Proceedings To Protect Juror

A judge on Tuesday said that she would be placing limitations on public access to the proceedings surrounding Roger Stone’s efforts to secure a new trial. The limitations were in order to protect the identity of a juror who is apparently central to Stone’s claims of juror misconduct that he said warranted a new trial. In explaining the restrictions, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson brought up recent public statements by President Trump about the juror, as well as the “false” and “incendiar...

‘I’m Coming for You’: Biden Threatens Gun Makers at South Carolina Rally

Joe Biden warned gun manufacturers during a speech in South Carolina on Monday night that “I’m coming for you, and I’m taking you down.”Biden has cast himself as a relative moderate in recent months on gun-control.

Congressman: Why I'm endorsing Bloomberg

In 2016, I was elected to Congress in a ruby red seat that no Democrat had won since 1933. As exciting as that night was, President Trump also won -- not only in my district, but in states all across America that traditionally went Democratic. Over the next two years, the Republicans controlled the House, the Senate and White House with an extremely partisan hand -- and they aggressively gutted everything from health care coverage to environmental protections.

We’ve yet to meet a single American who’s been brainwashed or had their vote snatched away by an SVR Twitterbot. Probably because no such person exists.Nevertheless, millions of Americans believe that a handful of terrible ...
