Virginia attorney’s office issues four warrants for weepy neo-Nazi Chris Cantwell

Published

The Virginia Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office of Albemarle County has issued four warrants for Christopher Cantwell, the weepy men’s-right-activist-turned-neo-Nazi who was prominently featured in a Vice documentary about the white supremacist rallies Charlottesville earlier this month.

In addition to losing his ability to find love on OK Cupid, Cantwell now faces four felony warrants related to the “illegal use of gases, and injury by caustic agent or explosive,” the Boston Globe reports.

Cantwell told the Globe he believes the warrants are related to an image where he’s “pepper-spraying a guy straight in his face as he’s coming toward me.”

“I thought that spraying that guy was the least damaging thing I could do,” Cantwell said. “In my left hand I had a flashlight. My other option, other than the pepper spray, was to break this guy’s teeth. Okay? And I didn’t want to do that. I just wanted him to not hurt me.”

In a video posted last Wednesday, Cantwell explained he’d been told there’s warrant out for his arrest. Choking back tears, Cantwell said he was “terrified” about the prospect of arrest.

“I don’t know what to do,” he cried. ”I need guidance.”

in subsequent interviews, Cantwell appeared more composed about his imminent arrest, promising to turn himself in if necessary.

“I don’t think I did anything wrong, and I’m looking forward to my day in court,” Cantwell said Friday.

Trump mounts sexist attack on Pelosi during impeachment hearing: ‘I think the woman is grossly incompetent’

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.

‘I’m an American’: Lt Col Vindman laughs off GOP counsel’s attempts to question his loyalty

Published

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman laughed off questions about an offer by a Ukrainian official to serve as that country's defense minister.

The Soviet-born Vindman, who emigrated to the U.S. as a child and later served in the Iraq War, agreed that a Ukrainian official had offered him the government position three times during an official visit for the inauguration of the country's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

"I don't know (why the position was offered), but every single time I dismissed it," Vindman said. "Upon returning I notified my chain of command and the appropriate counter-intelligence folks about the offer."
