University of Kansas police are investigating the reported rape of a 16-year-old girl last month at the dormitory housing the college’s highly ranked men’s basketball team, officials said on Thursday.

No charges have been filed and the victim has not been identified by police. The alleged attack was reported to have taken place between 10 p.m. on Dec. 17 and 5 a.m. on Dec. 18, campus police said in a statement.

Deputy Chief James Anguiano said in an email that five members of the Jayhawks basketball team were witnesses. The suspected assault took place at all-male McCarthy Hall, which houses the team and other students.

The victim was not a University of Kansas student and was visiting dorm residents, the police statement said. She reported no physical injury, it said, adding that Kansas Athletics officials are cooperating with the investigation.

An online police report describes the incident as “rape” and “forcible rape,” while the statement calls it “sexual assault.”

The report said other potential crimes related to the incident included contributing to a child’s misconduct, furnishing alcohol to a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The story was first reported by the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper.

Texas Republican Rep. Mike Conaway on Thursday argued that it was not illegal for Republicans to "out" the White House whistleblower.

Conway cited a Washington Post "fact-check" that gave "Three Pinocchios" to the claim that the whistleblower has a statutory right to anonymity.

Following his time, Ambassador Gordon Sondland was questioned by Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA).

During Speier's questioning, she was interrupted by Conaway, who brought up The Post giving "Three Pinocchios."

Adam Schiff buries one of the GOP’s remaining anti-impeachment talking points

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Wednesday took a hammer to one of the Republican Party's few remaining talking points aimed at undermining the House impeachment inquiry.

Throughout the testimony of European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland, Republicans kept saying that there couldn't be any kind of extortion scheme on President Donald Trump's part because Ukraine got its military aid without publicly announcing investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden.

Schiff, however, showed why this argument simply doesn't hold up.

"My colleagues seem to be under the impression that unless the president spoke the words, 'Ambassador Sondland, I am bribing the Ukrainian president,' that there's no evidence of bribery!" he said.

Chris Wallace fact-checks his own Fox News colleagues after their denials of Trump’s quid pro quo

Published

on

As US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland gave his testimony in the House impeachment hearings this Wednesday, Fox News contributor Ken Starr acknowledged that Sondland's testimony all but guarantees that articles of impeachment will be drawn up against President Trump. He also posited that Trump "gave himself enough cover" regarding Sondland's September 9 conversation with Trump where he said the President allegedly said, "I want nothing, I want nothing, I want no quid pro quo."

"Well, I think that Ken Starr and [Fox News contributor] Andy McCarthy are very good lawyers," Wallace said. "And like any good lawyers they can parse this, phrase this any way they want, but as a reporter it seems to me that we have to go to what the headline is today, and the headline is that Gordon Sondland, one of the three amigos, perhaps the one who had the most direct contact with Donald Trump, says in his opening statement, 'Was there a quid pro quo with regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting? The answer is yes.'"
