Police in the nation’s capital are investigating a possible hate crime after a white man allegedly used racial slurs while assaulting and threatening a black panhandler.

NBC Washington reports police are investigating whether the daytime attack in the trendy shopping district in Georgetown should be prosecuted as a hate crime.

Richard Walter Moore, 40, was arrested on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and felony threats while police further investigate the incident.

Police say the black victim was panhandling at Wisconsin Ave and M Street when the white suspect approached. The suspect allegedly used a racial slur and suggest the victim leave.

The panhandler crossed the street — leaving his belongings — but was followed by Moore

When Moore challenged the victim to a fight, the panhandler allegedly replied, “leave me.”

The suspect then allegedly kicked the panhandler, resulting in a scuffle. After several blows were landed by both sides, Moore allegedly grabbed a “metal railing plant holder” and struck the victim, injuring his hand.

When the victim gained control of the metal plant holder, the suspect allegedly picked up a brick.

“You go back there, I’m gonna bust you in the face with a brick,” Moore allegedly said in a threat the responding officer deemed credible.

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence.

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
