WATCH: Off-duty cop in street clothes slams woman against car after fender-bender

Published

on

Two women face charges after a videotaped altercation with an off-duty San Jose police officer following a minor vehicle collision.

The video shows the officer, who is dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, slam one of the women against a parked car.

He yells at the passerby who recorded cell phone video of the altercation that he is a police officer, but he does not show his badge at any point during the minute-long recording of the September incident posted on Live Leak.

The woman’s sister comes to her aid, and both of them get into a car and drive away.

KPIX-TV confirmed the man is a San Jose police officer, although his name was not released.

A police spokeswoman said the woman crashed into the rear of the officer’s vehicle, and he attempted to detain her until on-duty police arrived.

Sgt. Heather Randol told the TV station that the woman bit the officer during the altercation.

Misdemeanor warrants have been issued for the woman and her sister for leaving the scene of an accident and use of force against a police officer, the spokeswoman said.

Randol said a supervisor conducted an internal investigation at the scene of the officer’s use of force, but he was not disciplined.

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

on

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.

Mueller probably won’t be giving new information — here’s why that can still sink Trump

Published

on

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will appear in Congress this week to testify for two hours about the report he authored on the case of Russian collusion.

The hearing is set for Wednesday, though Mueller has said that he won't have any additional information other than what is in his report. A Washington Post report used examples of past Mueller testimony to outline what can be anticipated. The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.
