Meghan Markle facing ‘existential problem’ as Crown expected to gag her anti-Trump speech

Published

on

British Prince Harry’s pending nuptials with “feisty” actor Meghan Markle have royal watchers struggling to maintain a stiff upper lip amidst worries over the crown’s ability to muzzle the American’s social consciousness, The Guardian reports.

“You have to go back to Prince Philip to think of a recruit to the family who is so evidently feisty and spiky,” said Robert Lacey, a historian and biographer of the Queen. “I can see that this is going to be a real problem in the months and years ahead for her, an existential problem.”

Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne. Markle is a divorced woman of mixed race, who grew up under the protection of America’s First Amendment.

Markle, whose African American mother has a master’s degree in social work from the University of Southern California, was raised “with a social consciousness to do what I could and speak up when I knew something was wrong.”

Markle is a women’s advocate for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. She has been outspoken in criticizing “misogynistic” and “divisive” actions of President Donald Trump.

“It’s a bit like going in the goldfish bowl. Everything changes. What she was able to say before she came into ‘the firm’ is very different to what she is going to be able to say now,” Dickie Arbiter, a former press secretary to Prince Charles explained. “It all changes.”

“Now she has come into the royal family, she will have to be politically neutral. Harry has probably made that perfectly clear. He knows she has been outspoken, but all that has to stop. She is going to have to adapt. I am sure she is on the road already.”

Blogojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for corruption while in office that included attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacancy created when Barack Obama was elected president. His sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.

Cooper lectured Blogojevich for getting sued while governor over a backlog of 3,000 clemency cases.

The CNN anchor described it as "a little ironic and frankly a little sad and pathetic and hypocritical."

"A federal judge has tossed out a racketeering lawsuit House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes filed last year against the private investigation firm at the heart of the Trump-Russia saga," Politico reported Friday evening.

"Alexandria, Virginia-based U.S. District Court Judge Liam O'Grady's two-page order made short work of Nunes' suit, which sought $9.9 million in damages from Fusion GPS, its founder Glenn Simpson and a nonprofit watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability," Politico explained. "The judge also signaled that pressing on with the legal battle could result in sanctions against Nunes and his attorney, Steven Biss."

Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter.”
