Chuck Schumer called DC police after someone forged a fake lawsuit claiming he sexually harassed a staffer

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer contacted Capitol Police in D.C. after someone allegedly tried to “forge” documents detailing fake sexual harassment claims against him by a staffer.

As Axios reports, the document (which was forwarded their news site and others) “looks like a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia,” but was debunked after a number of inconsistencies, including no listed lawyer for the staffer.

“The document is a forged document and every allegation is false,” Schumer’s communications director Matt House told Axios. “We have turned it over to the Capitol Police and asked them to investigate and pursue criminal charges because it is clear the law has been broken.”

The woman named in the document, who was a staffer for Schumer from 2009 to 2012 and now works for the federal government, said “the claims in this document are completely false, my signature is forged, and even basic facts about me are wrong.”

“I have contacted law enforcement to determine who is responsible,” the woman, who asked Axios not to name her because she believes herself a victim of a crime, said. “I parted with Senator Schumer’s office on good terms and have nothing but the fondest memories of my time there.”

The 13-page document included a number of factual inconsistencies as well, including dates where alleged acts of harassment took place in D.C. when Schumer was in fact out of the district.

President Donald Trump on Monday once again launched an attack on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in an angry Twitter tirade.

"The 'Squad' is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart," the president wrote. "They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!"

Vogue editor Anna Wintour refuses to talk about Melania Trump so she can lavish praise on Michelle Obama

Published

Vogue editor and fashion doyenne Anna Wintour had little good to say about current First Lady Melania Trump in an interview with the Economist, choosing instead to lavish praise on Michelle Obama as the "best ambassador this country could possibly have."

In the interview, which can be heard below, Anna McElvoy wanted to talk about Melania but Wintour seemed to have no interest in the former fashion model from Slovenia who is currently the third wife of Donald Trump.

“[Melania] I think, very consciously, wanted to see herself as an ambassador for British fashion, in this case, or a transatlantic ambassador,” McElvoy asked, pointing to the first lady's recent trip to the U.K. “I mean, do you value that?”

Published

on

Disgraced former PBS host Charlie Rose and accused billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had conversations about women whom Rose should hire and whom he would then go on to sexually harass.

New York Magazine reporter Irin Carmon has a bombshell story about Epstein's call logs that show his regular interactions with multiple powerful men during a time when prosecutors say he was running a sex trafficking ring for underage girls.

Of particular interest are his calls with Rose, who was fired by PBS in 2017 after multiple women came forward to accuse him of being a serial sexual harasser.
