Reilly WASHINGTON ― A D.C. jury deciding the fate of three people facing felony charges in connection with destruction during protests against President Donald Trump’s inauguration appears to be deadlocked. The jury foreman wrote a note to the judge on Tuesday, saying jurors couldn’t reach a verdict on any count and that their views seemed unlikely to change. The government originally charged more than 200 people with felonies, but has yet to convict any defendant at trial. Forty-seven individuals are still facing felonies, including the three defendants currently on trial. After closing arguments last week, a juror passed a note to the judge saying she had seen graffiti in a bathroom stall reading “Google jury nullification,” referring to the concept of jurors voting … [Read more...] about Jury Likely Deadlocked On Felony Charges Against Trump Inauguration Protesters

The Democrat told the cheering crowd: “When your son looks at you and says ‘look mamma look you won… bullies don’t win’. “And I said ‘baby they don’t, because we’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf***er’.” Tlaib made history as she and Ilhan Omar became the first Muslim women elected to Congress in November midterm elections. The 42-year-old, who grew up in poverty as one of 14 … [Read more...] about Donald Trump blasted as America’s first US-Palestinian Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib yells ‘impeach that motherf***er’

Reilly WASHINGTON ― The Justice Department failed to convict any of the four defendants facing felony trial in connection with property destruction during a protest of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, with jurors either finding defendants not guilty or deadlocking on charges against the defendants. Two of the defendants could still face trial on felony charges, while one defendant could face a single misdemeanor charge.
