Video: Trump Caught Partying with Epstein, Touching Women at 1992 Party

Trump and Epstein video releasedIn the days since Jeffrey Epstein’s indictment on sex trafficking charges, Donald Trump has said he was “not a fan” of the financier—but footage unearthed by Morning Joe Wednesday of the president partying with Epstein at Mar-a-Lago in 1992 begs to differ.

In one video, originally shot for an NBC program with Faith Daniels, Trump is seen talking and laughing with Epstein and seemingly pointing at women at the party. In another, Trump, who’s wearing a fuchsia tie, dances with several women identified as cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins, and pulls at least one toward him.


Appeals court rules for Trump in fight over federal worker restrictions

Appeals court rules for Trump re federal workers

A federal appeals court handed President Trump a legal victory Tuesday when it ruled against labor unions representing government workers in their fight with the administration over workplace rules.

The unanimous decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit reversed a district court ruling last year that struck down key aspects of three executive orders. The provisions in question curtailed civil service protections and made it easier for employers to fire workers and weaken their union representation.

More than a dozen unions representing federal employees challenged the executive orders, which impact roughly 2.1 million civil servants, arguing they violated a 1978 law on collective bargaining.



George Conway Says He’s Changed His Mind About Trump: ‘Racist To The Core’

George Conway: Trump is a racistGeorge Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, wrote a scathing editorial on Monday blasting President Donald Trump’s recent attacks on a coalition of Democratic congresswomen as “racist to the core” and “beyond the bounds of human decency.”

Conway, a vocal critic of the president despite his wife’s senior role in his administration, said Trump’s comments in recent days had shifted his opinion of the president. Though Conway once thought of Trump as merely “boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive,” now the lawyer says the president’s behavior leaves “no doubt” about his character.


Flynn business partner faces trial in belated test for Mueller team

Flynn business partner to go on trial

Less than two months after former special counsel Robert Mueller announced the end of his high-profile investigation of foreign influence on the Trump presidential campaign, his office’s work is facing one of its most notable courtroom tests as a former business partner of Gen. Michael Flynn fights foreign-agent-related charges stemming from Mueller’s probe.

Jury selection opened Monday morning in federal court in Alexandria, Va., for Bijan Rafiekian, an Iranian-American businessman facing two felony charges connected to a short-lived lobbying and public-relations campaign Flynn and Rafiekian undertook in 2016 that targeted a dissident Turkish cleric living in Pennsylvania, Fethullah Gulen.


Legal battle over U.S. gerrymandering shifts to North Carolina as trial begins

Gerrymandering fight shifts to NCNorth Carolina’s state legislative districts were unconstitutionally gerrymandered to entrench Republicans in power and must be thrown out, a lawyer for state Democrats and a good-government advocacy group told a panel of judges on Monday.

“Republicans in the General Assembly have manipulated the district lines to guarantee that their party will control both the state House and the state Senate, regardless of how people vote,” attorney R. Stanton Jones said as a civil trial began in state Superior Court in Raleigh. “This attack on representative democracy and voting rights is fundamentally unfair.”

But a lawyer for Republican legislative leaders, Phillip Strach, said the plaintiffs were seeking to use “judicial fiat” to sidestep the electoral and legislative processes.


Trump’s Tweets Prove That He Is a Raging Racist

Trumps tweets show that he is a raging racit

Donald Trump keeps trying to convince any disbelieving holdouts that he is a raging racist. At least, that’s how I imagine his motives. In truth, it is more likely that his truest nature is simply being revealed, again and again, and he is using his own racism to appeal to the racism in the people who support him.

On Sunday morning, the same day that the Trump administration earlier announced it would conduct raids to round up undocumented immigrants, Trump weighed in again on the conflict between four female freshmen congresswomen and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, tweeting a series of three of the most racist tweets he could produce:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly ...


Trump immigration change would all but end asylum requests for Central American migrants

Asylum seekersThe Trump administration moved Monday to prevent most migrants from claiming political asylum in the United States, requiring them to make their claims in other countries first.

A new proposed rule will almost certainly be challenged in court. Previous administration attempts to restrict asylum claims have been struck down.

The current proposal "will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States," Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.
