Leah Remini calls Scientology’s bluff: If I lied about anything, sue me

Published

on

In a interview on Larry King Now Thursday, reformed Scientologist Leah Remini challenged the church’s criticism of her reality show Scientology and the Aftermath, arguing if they want to call her and her fellow defectors liars, “they should sue.”

Asked about the Church of Scientology’s statement that Remini is a “bitter ex-Scientologst” and “spoiled entitled diva” lying about the church for attention and recognition, Remini told King she has nothing to say about its position.

“I don’t,” Remini said. “I think that says a lot about this organization. They should sue us, it’s as simple as that. If we’re lying—“

“And listen, they say this on every outlet that can,” she continued. “They have said this about every single person that’s spoke out, and not one lawsuit has been brought to anybody.”

Remini noted Scientologists are “not a group that is scared of a lawsuit.”

“They’re a litigious group—so if that were true, they would simply sue us and I welcome them to do that,” she said. “What I’m not going to stand for is an organization with this kind of money to continue to do things like that, and to bully people, and to harass people, to defraud people out of their lives their money but more importantly their families, and I’m just not going to sit around and watch it happen.

Remini, who starred in the hit sitcom The Kind of Queens, left the church in 2013 after almost 30 years, citing the dogmatic rules and restrictions. “No one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to,” Remini said at the time.

In her highly rated A&E docuseries, Remini sought to bring to light the church’s “abusive practices,” including stripping members of money and separating them from their families.

The church calls Remini’s public grievances a “publicity stunt,” insisting Scientology and the Aftermath “ shows the extent Leah Remini is willing to go to in order to distort the truth about Scientology.”

To that, Remini invites the church to dispute her “lies” in the court of law.

Fox & Friends hosts visibly deflated after Andrew Napolitano destroys their hopes of a quick impeachment trial

Published

on

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano deflated the hosts of "Fox & Friends" by poking holes in their impeachment defense of President Donald Trump.

Co-host Steve Doocy argued that Trump's conversations with former national security adviser John Bolton and other White House officials were protected by executive privilege, but Napolitano pointed out that wasn't necessarily so.

"If John came here as he used to, and started spilling the beans, that would violate the privilege," Napolitano said of Bolton, a former Fox News guest. "But it would be perfectly lawful and he would be able to do it. If he did it in a press conference it would be lawful and he could do it. The question is, can he do it under oath in the well of the Senate? That's where the authority is divided."

Rick Wilson buries Pam Bondi for ‘laughable and shallow’ impeachment defense designed to dazzle Trump

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican campaign consultant Rick Wilson leveled former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for her defense of Donald Trump on Monday -- which turned into a diatribe against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Speaking with host Willie Geist, Wilson also brought up accusations os political corruption against Bondi who dropped a Florida state lawsuit against Trump before he became president after a PAC associated with her received a substantial political donation.

"This is also one of the great master fantasies of the Trump campaign, make Hunter Biden a major issue in the 2020 election and Pam Bondi played to one audience. and that was Fox and Trump that's all they cared about," he explained. "That's all they were trying to accomplish, and, look, she goes way back with Donald Trump; left office under a cloud when she left the office of attorney general in Florida, because she had taken basically a $25,000 bribe from Donald Trump about Trump University and drop the lawsuit in Florida."
