U.S. prosecutors have charged Avenatti with extortion and bank and wire fraud. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles said Avenatti was arrested Monday in New York.

Prosecutors say he demanded that the apparel company give him $20 million.According to the Washington Free Beacon, Avenatti appeared on CNN and MSNBC between March 7th and May 10th, 2018, at least 65 times and 43 … [Read more...] about Flashback: Michael Avenatti Made 108 Appearances on CNN, MSNBC in Two-Month Period

By Roxana Kopetman | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: November 27, 2018 at 4:40 pm | UPDATED: November 27, 2018 at 11:12 pm Four counties in Southern California plan to hold forums in the coming month to tell the public how jail officials in their communities worked with federal immigration agents. Cooperation between law enforcement and federal immigration agencies is regulated in California, as part of the state’s controversial sanctuary laws, some of which took effect early this year. Annual public forums, with law enforcement discussing the ways – including legal interactions – that sheriff’s departments, police departments and others have worked with federal immigration authorities, also have been required by the TRUTH Act, a state law that took effect last year. The sanctuary laws have proven controversial. Many cities in California have passed resolutions or taken legal steps against the statutes, saying they violate federal law, … [Read more...] about Southern California counties will host public forums on sheriffs’ cooperation with ICE

Lindsey Graham says will likely happen "early next year" — Whitaker oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates. Democrats are already urging Whitaker to recuse himself from the investigation, given Whitaker's public remarks on television and in print criticizing the scope and authority of Mueller's investigation. But Mr. Trump never forgave Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation, and publicly and repeatedly berated his attorney general for doing so.

President Donald Trump continued to berate journalists on Friday, zeroing in on two black women with comments that drew a letter of condemnation from the National Association of Black Journalists.

Trump did not answer Phillip’s question. Of April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks, one of his most frequent targets, Trump said: “You talk about somebody that’s a loser; she doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing. She gets publicity and … [Read more...] about ‘You Ask a Lot of Stupid Questions’: Trump Comments Draw Condemnation From Black Journalists Group
