Hunter Biden sues Rudy Giuliani over 'total annihilation' of privacy from release of laptop data

Hunter Biden sues Guiliani

Hunter Biden, whose computer records sparked Republican congressional investigations of his father, President Joe Biden, sued Rudy Giuliani and his lawyer on Tuesday for allegedly copying, manipulating and distributing the records in a “total annihilation” of his privacy.

Giuliani, who was a campaign lawyer for Donald Trump, allegedly reviewed the digital information for months before providing it to reporters and Republican lawmakers before the 2020 election against Joe Biden, according to the federal lawsuit.


Trump argues First Amendment protects him from ‘insurrection’ cases aimed at keeping him off ballot

Trump trumpingAttorneys for former President Donald Trump argue that an attempt to bar him from the 2024 ballot under a rarely used “insurrection” clause of the Constitution should be dismissed as a violation of his freedom of speech.

The lawyers made the argument in a filing posted Monday by a Colorado court in one of the most significant of a series of challenges to Trump’s candidacy under the Civil War-era clause in the 14th Amendment. The challenges rest on Trump’s attempts to overturn his 2020 loss to Democrat Joe Biden and his role leading up to the violent Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“At no time do Petitioners argue that President Trump did anything other than engage in either speaking or refusing to speak for their argument that he engaged in the purported insurrection,” wrote attorney Geoffrey Blue.

TVNL Comment:  Keep going till you get to the 14th Amendment, Donald.  You can be kept off the ballot for supporting an insurrection.  Oh, never mind...the words have more than one syllable.



Judge to examine alleged attorney conflicts of interest in Mar-a-Lago case

Judge Aileen CannonJudge Aileen Cannon agreed Monday to a Justice Department (DOJ) request to hold hearings to examine potential conflicts of interest of two attorneys representing former President Trump’s co-defendants in the Mar-a-Lago case.

The move comes after the DOJ warned that the two attorneys are representing other clients who may be called as witnesses against Walt Nauta, Trump’s valet who moved boxes in and out of a storage room, and Carlos De Oliveira, the Mar-a-Lago property manager who assisted him.


Far-right Marjorie Taylor Greene ridiculed for Yom Kippur error

Greene gets more and more idiotic

Far-right Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has drawn ridicule for using an image of a Hanukah menorah in an attempt to commemorate the unrelated Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.

The derision the Georgia representative brought upon herself comes after she was previously criticized for perpetuating antisemitic conspiracy theories.

Green on Sunday posted a message on X – previously known as Twitter – on Sunday wishing observers a meaningful fast for Monday’s observation of Yom Kippur. She tried to add a traditional Yom Kippur greeting but misspelled it: “Gamar Chasima Tova!”

The backlash soon ensued.


Cassidy Hutchinson says Mark Meadows burned documents

Cassidy HutchinsonFormer Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson in her new memoir said that onetime chief of staff Mark Meadows burned so many documents in the waning days of the administration that his wife complained to her about the dry-cleaning bills to remove the burning smell from his clothes, according to The New York Times.

Hutchinson, who last year vaulted into the national spotlight after testifying before the House January 6 committee and remarking on the inner workings of the White House during Capitol riot, described to The Times an administration that was steeped in paranoia.

The former GOP aide told The Times that Meadows and other staffers feared that individuals from the "deep state" could potentially swoop in and find the documents they were disposing of.


Judge in fraud suit against Trump chides defense for repeating arguments

Judge in fraud suit against Trump chides defenseThe judge overseeing New York Attorney General Letitia James’s $250 million business fraud lawsuit against Donald Trump on Friday became visibly annoyed with defense lawyers for what he called false statements and previously used arguments.

New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron — who will preside over an upcoming bench trial that may last three months — grew frustrated with a Trump attorney’s repeated assertions that Trump and his namesake company were not liable for wrongdoing.

Trump and the other defendants are accused of giving banks and insurance companies drastically inflated estimates of Trump’s net worth during a decade’s worth of official transactions to get better loan and policy rates.

“You cannot make false statements used in business,” Engoron told Christopher Kise, banging his fist on his bench and raising his voice. “That’s what this statute prohibits, and that’s what’s alleged here.”


Biden to join the picket line in UAW strike

Biden to join UAW picket line

President Joe Biden will travel to Michigan to join the picket line of auto workers on strike nationwide, he said on Friday afternoon.

“Tuesday, I’ll go to Michigan to join the picket line and stand in solidarity with the men and women of UAW as they fight for a fair share of the value they helped create,” Biden wrote on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.

His decision to stand alongside the striking workers represents perhaps the most significant display of union solidarity ever by a sitting president. Biden’s announcement comes a week after he expressed solidarity with the UAW and said he “understand[s] the workers’ frustration.”

The announcement of his trip was seen as a seismic moment within certain segments of the labor community. “Pretty hard-core,” said one union adviser, who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
