KKK leader found guilty of molesting girls: ‘I will always hate the Jew — and please vote for Trump!’

Published

A South Carolina jury was apparently unswayed by a neo-Nazi’s “vote for Trump” sign and convicted the former Ku Klux Klan leader of sexually abusing two girls.

August Kreis III was found guilty Thursday of one count of criminal sexual conduct involving a minor child and two counts of committing lewd acts on a child, reported The State.

Three young women testified during a three-day trial that Kreis repeatedly molested two girls who were between the ages of 10 and 14 years old.

The 61-year-old Kreis, a onetime Aryan Nation leader and Christian Identity pastor, held up a sign throughout the trial expressing his support for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

Circuit Court Judge Douet “Jack” Earley instructed jurors to ignore the sign and focus instead on the evidence.

Trump, the real estate tycoon and reality TV star, holds a four-point lead in South Carolina — which will be the first southern state to hold a presidential primary next year.

The GOP candidate has drawn support from many of the most influential white supremacists in the U.S., including Kreis — whose activity and influence has waned with his arrest and diabetes-related health problems.

One of the sex abuse victims read a poem during the sentencing hearing that described Kreis, who lived for a time in the same town as the Charleston church gunman, as a “monster.”

“My soul cries at the mention of your name,” the woman read. “Your disgusting little secret is out. I hope you are haunted till the day you die for the things you’ve done.”

The white supremacist, who is perhaps best known for an explosive appearance two decades ago on “The Jerry Springer Show,” spouted off hateful remarks and expressed support for his preferred candidate just before sentencing.

“I will always hate the Jew,” Kreis said. “This government is run by an evil group of people, and please — vote for Trump!”

Kreis was sentenced to 50 years in prison, and he told the judge he wanted to remain in jail for the rest of his life — which he almost certainly will.

The president tagged Lewandowski, who testified Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, and "Fox & Friends" in a Twitter post reacting to coverage of the congressional hearing.

"As Corey Lewandowski stated very clearly yesterday in front of the House Judiciary Committee, President Trump didn’t do anything wrong or illegal," Trump tweeted about himself. "But they all know that. The Democrats are hurting our Country, and getting nothing done. Shameful!"

‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook

Published

on

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.

Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.

"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."
