Police Chief Mike Diebold

Police Chief Mike Diebold once served as the top cop in Leechburg, PA, but after an encounter with a minor he might end up behind bars himself.

According to the Pittsburg Daily-Gazette the 40 year old was arrested Friday after he tried to arrange a meeting with a 14-year-old girl he met online. The girl was an undercover officer during a sting, according to Lower Burrell police Chief Tim Weitzel.

“This case is particularly heinous because the perpetrator is a public official, sworn to serve and protect the community,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in the statement. “We have a zero tolerance policy for the sexual abuse of children and my office will prosecute any offender to the fullest extent of the law, no matter who they are.

It was Shapiro’s office that took Diebold into custody.

“Thanks to the hard work of the agents and prosecutors in our Child Predator Section, one more predator is off our streets,” Shapiro continued. “We are working relentlessly to get every perpetrator out of our communities and to keep Pennsylvania’s children safe.”

Diebold will be charged with unlawful contact with a minor and criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.

If the score was kept for the first day of the impeachment trial, it would show hefty losses for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

As Former Special Counsel for the Department of Defense, Ryan Goodman, pointed out, four major headlines perfectly reflect the cracks in the strangle-hold McConnell has had on his party.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.
