Colorado Springs minister caught on tape admitting he impregnated a 14-year-old girl: police

Published

Authorities in Colorado Springs have arrested a licensed minister who allegedly impregnated a 14-year-old, KKTV News reports.

Romello Leach, 22, was arrested on multiple felony counts for Sexual Assault on a Child, Pattern of Abuse.

An employee at the Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center came forward after the young teen was taken there by her mother, resulting in a months-long investigation by the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit.

“Leach is associated with several churches who regularly meet at the Satellite Hotel, located at 411 Lakewood Circle in Colorado Springs,” the department noted. “He has had access to an unknown number of children/teens and we are seeking information on anyone who may have been victimized by him in the past and not reported it.”

Police are worried there are additional victims.

“He had access to so many given his position and the number of churches he was involved in,” EPSO spokesperson Jacqueline Kirby told KKTV. “It’s very disheartening; as a parent, I’ll tell you, you go to church and you would think that’s one of the places you’re safe from predators … unfortunately, we’ve seen that that’s not the case.”

KKTV reports Leach allegedly admitted he impregnated a 14-year-old during a phone call with his ex-wife that authorities recorded.

“So you didn’t sleep with that girl and get her pregnant?” his ex-wife questioned.

“It happened,” Leach allegedly replied.

Leach allegedly admitted he made a mistake, but claimed it was “not like he will go around and sleep with everybody’s 13 or 14-year-old daughter.”

Republican Kevin McCarthy gets taken down by former top GOP colleague

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
