‘Trump is a child rapist’: Texas GOP official to protest the Republican ‘psychopath’ at Austin rally

Published

on

A Texas GOP official is planning to protest Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s rally in Austin Tuesday evening by wearing a signboard that accuses Trump of “child rape.”

The Austin Chronicle reported that Robert Morrow — chairman of the Travis County Republican Party — will join the ranks of protesters expected outside the appearance at Austin’ Luedecke Arena.

“Donald Trump’s psychopathy has been on full display on the national political stage for over a year,” said Morrow in a press release. “I want folks to know that Trump is a child rapist and that he is currently being sued in a civil action in NY federal courts for raping, slapping an 13-year-old girl at a Jeffrey Epstein party in 1994. Trump also threatened to murder the girl, now age 35 and a Jane Doe plaintiff, and also murder her family if she ever told how he (Trump) sexually abused her.”

The lurid allegations were filed in federal court in June. The anonymous plaintiff said that Trump lured her and other underage girls to parties with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. The former reality TV star reportedly enticed the girls with promises of modeling contracts, then took advantage of them sexually.

The independent fact-checking agency Snopes.com is currently investigating the allegations and has yet to determine how much validity there may be to the charges.

KVUE.com said that Morrow has been furiously tweeting in the run-up to the protest. He has demanded five minutes of microphone time to question Trump and deliver his own message.

Morrow is notorious in Texas political circles for his strident views and his willingness to spout wild allegations about Democratic and Republican political figures.

He has alleged that former Gov. Rick Perry (R) is a “rampaging bisexual adulterer.” He has called Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton an “angry bull dyke.” Former presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Morrow once said is “very likely a gayman who got married.”

Morrow was narrowly elected to his seat as party chairman. Some less extreme Republicans have been horrified to see him at the helm of their party.

“We will explore every single option that exists, whether it be persuading him to resign, trying to force him to resign, constraining his power, removing his ability to spend money or resisting any attempt for him to access data or our social media account,” said Travis County Republican vice-chair Matt Mackowiak to the Texas Tribune when Morrow was elected. “I’m treating this as a coup and as a hostile takeover.”

BUSTED: Trump super PAC accused of lying to government about the source of mysterious $325,000 donation

Published

According to a report from the Daily Beast's "Pay Dirt" investigative unit, a Super PAC affiliated with President Donald Trump has some explaining to do about a $375,000 donation that was wrongly attributed to one company -- but wire transfers tell a completely different story.

As the Beast notes, "The super PAC America First Action reported receiving a $325,000 contribution last year from a company called Global Energy Producers. But records released in federal court this week indicate that contribution came from an entirely different company," adding that the discrepancy was pointed out by the  Campaign Legal Center which labeled it a violation of federal campaign-finance laws.

Senate delivers stinging bipartisan rebuke to Trump — and blocks Saudi arms sales

Published

on

The Trump White House suffered a stinging defeat on Thursday when a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers voted to block sales of American arms to Saudi Arabia.

The vote in favor of blocking the arms sales received affirmative votes from all Senate Democrats, as well as votes from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Todd Young (R-IN).

Graham, who is usually one of President Donald Trump's staunchest allies, said he voted for the bill because he believed the United States could not ignore the behavior of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as the Saudi government's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
