Six former staffers accuse Reagan appeals court chief judge of forcing them to watch porn or imagining them naked

Published

on

Six former legal staffers for United States Court of Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski have come forward to allege sexual misconduct, The Washington Post reported Friday.

“I was in a state of emotional shock, and what I really wanted to do was be as small as possible and make as few movements as possible and to say as little as possible to get out,” revealed Heidi Bond, who clerked for Judge Kozinski from 2006 to 2007.

Judge Kozinski served as chief judge of the 9th Circuit from 2007 to 2014 and remains on the court to this day. Judge Kozinski was appointed by the appeals court by President Ronald Reagan in 1985.

Another 9th Circuit clerk, Emily Murphy, recounted an incident at a legal reception in San Francisco when Judge Kozinski revealed he was imagining her naked.

“It wasn’t just clear that he was imagining me naked, he was trying to invite other people — my professional colleagues — to do so as well,” Murphy said. “That was what was humiliating about it.”

Two of the six women coming forward to allege sexual misconduct said Judge Kozinski made them watch pornography with him in judge’s chambers.

“So, we have for not illegitimate reasons, we have made it much easier to keep track of people and to have the past revealed and in some cases that’s justifiable for the protection of society,” Judge Kozinski told the Charles Koch Institute in 2015. “But I think we have gone too far. I think there’s such a thing as privacy, there’s such a thing as forgiveness.”

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
