Police find 12-gauge shotgun, rifle, and more than 100 rounds at George Zimmerman’s girlfriend’s home

Authorities found more than 100 rounds of ammunition and several firearms while searching the home of George Zimmerman’s girlfriend, while Zimmerman himself identified himself as homeless to police.

CNN reported on Monday that a search of Samantha Scheibe’s residence by police revealed that Zimmerman possessed a rifle, three handguns, 106 rounds of ammunition — including two magazines for an AR-15 assault rifle — a pocket knife and a 12-gauge shotgun, among other items.

The search followed a judge’s order barring Zimmerman from possessing any weapons following his Nov. 18 arrest on aggravated assault and battery charges against Scheibe. Zimmerman pleaded not guilty and is free on bail. Zimmerman has also been barred from being in contact with Scheibe or from leaving Central Florida. He is expected back in court on Jan. 7.

According to WKMG-TV, Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges in July in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, told authorities he was homeless and unemployed, and did not provide an emergency contact. He listed attorney Mark O’Mara, who represented him in the Martin case, as his address.

A public defender representing Zimmerman in the current case against him filed a motion on Monday seeking to have his mobile phone and knife returned to him, arguing that, “These items collected were not related to the charges in any way and are not considered evidence in this matter.”

Senate GOP will be accessories to obstruction if they shoot down a move by Justice Roberts to call witnesses: Ex-prosecutor

Published

On Monday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) must motion for Chief Justice John Roberts to call witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial — and that if Senate Republicans vote down this decision, they will be "accessories" to obstruction of justice.

Schiff must make a motion to CJ Roberts for witnesses. As I’ve been saying all along, if Roberts grants the motion for witnesses (he will) & the Rs vote to overrule him (they might) that will (de facto) be obstruction of justice & accessory after the fact. https://t.co/yQfUTga7gd

Trump already planning his victory lap for impeachment acquittal: report

Published

President Donald Trump is already planning his victory lap for his presumed acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial.

The president and his aides haven't agreed on a plan yet, and it's not clear that new revelations from John Bolton's upcoming book will force Republican senators to agree to witness testimony, but they're discussing how he should celebrate once the trial ends, reported Politico.

“The president is giving a lot of thought to where he goes when he is acquitted and vindicated,” a senior administration official told the website. “This isn’t a one-and-done moment. This will be a sustained exit from a long dreary impeachment process and a great reset to 2020 — not just the 2020 reelection but the 2020 domestic and international arena.”
