Las Vegas sheriff shuts down alt-right reporter Laura Loomer’s conspiracy theory: ‘Stop asking your question’

Published

on

Alt-right “citizen journalist” Laura Loomer provoked Las Vegas’ normally even-keeled Sheriff Joseph Lombardo to raise his voice during a Monday press conference when she insisted on asking leading questions.

As Loomer asked questions about the FBI’s “changing timeline” in accordance with the latest alt-right conspiracy theory alleging that the Vegas shooting was a “false flag,” Lombardo swiftly cut her off.

“That’s not how I conduct press conferences” Lombardo said as Loomer continued speaking. “Please stop asking your question. There’s a decorum that we have here.”

After the short exchange, Loomer took to Twitter to recount it to her followers.

“I just asked @Sheriff_LVMPD whether the @FBI timeline of #StephenPaddock has been changed since Valet receipts show a Sep 25 check in date,” Loomer wrote. “He because [sic] very flustered and angry and said ‘please stop asking your question.'”

She then re-tweeted a follower’s recording of the exchange between herself and Lombardo, which they inferred “proved” her leading questions correct.

Loomer made headlines over the summer after she was arrested for rushing the stage at a Trump-inspired Central Park performance of “Julius Cesar.”

"Well, I am, but I can't participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I'm a possible witness," Giuliani said, adding that he's ready to testify if he got White House approval.

Trump flings insults at John Bolton as Senate weighs subpoena: ‘If I listened to him we would be in World War Six’

Published

President Donald Trump hurled insults at his former national security adviser John Bolton -- who could be called to testify against him in the Senate impeachment trial.

Bolton revealed in his forthcoming book that Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and Democratic senators -- and possibly some Republicans -- want to subpoena him to testify in the trial.

"For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, 'begged' me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying 'Don’t do it, sir,' takes the job, mistakenly says 'Libyan Model' on T.V.," Trump tweeted, "and many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?"
