Attorney for Trump rape accuser claims hackers attacked website to shut down press conference

Published

on

Attorney Lisa Bloom, who is representing a Donald Trump rape accuser, alleges that her law firm’s website was hacked on Wednesday and that Anonymous claimed responsibility on Twitter, the Wrap reports.

Earlier in the day, Bloom shared on Twitter that her firm’s website had crashed, though the account that claimed to be associated with Anonymous didn’t claim responsibility for the attack until later.

However, the group that hacked Bloom’s website appears to have no connection to Anonymous.

Bloom was scheduled to hold a press conference for her client, who has up until now only been referred to as “Jane Doe,” on Wednesday afternoon at her Woodland Hills, California law firm.

However, Bloom cancelled the conference on Wednesday afternoon, stating that her client was living in fear after receiving death threats. She said, “Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented.”

On Wednesday night, Bloom shared on Twitter, “Our firm’s website was reportedly hacked today, as well as emails. Anonymous claims responsibility,” along with the original tweet from the seemingly Anonymous-affiliated account. Their tweet read, “No LiveStream for you Lisa Bloom HA HA HA HA HA.”

After Bloom tweeted the news, the usual Anonymous Twitter account (@YourAnonNews) shared a tweet of its own, distancing itself from the other user’s message.

It read, “If people had half a brain they would look at ‘s tweets before September. They were NOT an Anonymous account. They can’t even lift.”

‘The worst day of the presidency so far for Donald Trump’: Advisor to four presidents

Published

on

President Donald Trump has not had a worse day in office than he suffered on Friday, according to a top former White House advisor.

David Gergen served in the administrations of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. He was interviewed Friday night by CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"If you are looking to throw somebody under the bus, Gordon Sondland would probably be a prime candidate to be next in line to be thrown under the bus," Cooper said.

"I think the president will wait patiently to see what he says and then decide," Gergen replied.

He then offered his analysis of the situation.

Chris Hayes breaks down the ‘busy day in the criminal chronicles of one President Donald J. Trump’

Published

MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes connected the dots between all of the bombshell news that was reported Friday in the impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump.

"Good God, today has been ten days and this week has been ten weeks," Hayes said. "And there are a million things happening at once."

"Just in the past couple of hours, for instance, we just got this incredibly incriminating and damning behind closed doors testimony from a U.S. foreign service officer that was still supposed to be kind of like the B-story today, the sideshow," he explained. "It's a guy who works in the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, a guy named David Holmes. He testified behind closed doors that he could hear president Trump talking on the phone to the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union who was an inaugural donor, and they were in a restaurant in Kiev and the president was shouting so loudly on the phone that [Gordon] Sondland had to hold the phone away from his ear because it was hurting his eardrum, so then everyone could hear."
