New video shows insane arrest of Oklahoma Trump surrogate busted on child sex trafficking

Published

on

The Moore Oklahoma Police Department has released the bodycam footage of former Republican state-senator Ralph Shortey when he was caught in a hotel room smoking marijuana with a 17-year-old teen.

The video was posted by local blog TheLostOgle and shows police as they attempted to do a wellness check at the hotel room.

“Responding officers found a juvenile male in a hotel room which was also occupied by an adult male. The circumstances surrounding this incident are currently under investigation and no additional information can be released at this time,” said Lt. Kyle Dudley in March.

Shortey, who served as chair of President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016, can be seen wearing a T-shirt saying “make me a sandwich” with the Biblical quote from Ephesians 5:22. The reference is about the subjugation of women.

“I’m sorry, you guys are just freaking me out a little bit,” Shortey says.

“Yeah, that’s kind of what we do,” the officer can be heard saying. The officers didn’t know at the time that Shortey was an elected official and at first didn’t believe it was his real name. The officer can be heard saying that the boy is 17 years old. Shortey claims he “didn’t know.”

“Can you show me that he’s only 17?” Shortey asks.

“No! I can’t,” the officer laughs. “But I can convince you that he is. I can put you in handcuffs and put you in the back of a car.”

Shortey continues to request proof that the boy is under age and the officer continues to promise that the age is true.

“What sense does it make for me to lie to you?” the officer asks. “But listen, whatever you’re doing, it’s a bad f*cking idea. Does that make sense to you?”

He goes on to say that if Shortey wanted to get high by himself or “if you’ve got things you need to figure out — you need to figure that out.” He said that Shortey can “live your life however you want to live it, but when you start doing it with kids and stuff, then it starts to become a serious, serious problem.”

Shortey pleaded guilty to one charge of child sex trafficking in an Oklahoma federal court last week.

Published

on

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.

Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
