GOPer goes ballistic over suggestion Trump forced Stormy to have abortion: ‘This is none of our business’

Published

on

Amy Kremer, a former tea party leader and failed GOP congressional candidate, on Sunday insisted that the news media had “no business” talking about President Donald Trump’s alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels — even if he had tried to force her to have an abortion.

Hours before CBS was set to air an interview with the adult film actress — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — CNN host Fredricka Whitfield noted that Trump had been uncharacteristically silent on the matter.

“Anybody who’s been through litigation knows you don’t go out and talk about it,” Kremer opined. “This is not a story to his base. The left desperately wants to bring down this president and I don’t think this is going to do it. We voted for him, not because he was going to be our pastor or because he was going to be our husband. We voted for him because he was a businessman that would fight back.”

Former prosecutor Wendy Murphy pointed out that conservatives had taken a different tone when President Bill Clinton had an affair with a White House intern.

“It was all about the morality of the president, his leadership,” she recalled. “[Trump] faces the possibility of testifying under oath. That potentially means being forced to answer questions about his relationship with these women — some of them non-consensual. And if he’s forced to answer those questions, he could be in what we know of as a perjury trap.”

Murphy predicted that evangelicals could begin to turn against Trump if Clifford reveals that she was forced to terminate a pregnancy as a result of the alleged affair.

“What if there’s more to the story?” Murphy said. “There are two provisions in the non-disclosure agreement he signed with Stormy Daniels that make reference to pregnancy and children. Two different provisions. There are statements out there that he had unprotected sex. What if it comes out that there was a pregnancy and that there was a request for the woman to terminate the pregnancy?”

“This is none of our business!” Kremer exclaimed. “This was a consensual relationship between two consenting adults! We have no business even talking about this!”

Clifford’s attorney, Michael J. Avenatti, told The Wrap that the NDA included “boilerplate language” about paternity.

Revealing gruesome new details of Khashoggi murder, UN report says ‘inconceivable’ crown prince not involved

Published

on

In a thorough and damning report on the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi released Wednesday, United Nations special rapporteur Agnes Callamard found that Khashoggi was "the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing" that was likely orchestrated by top officials in the Saudi government, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"Evidence points to the 15-person mission to execute Mr. Khashoggi requiring significant government coordination, resources, and finances," Callamard wrote. "Every expert consulted finds it inconceivable that an operation of this scale could be implemented without the crown prince being aware, at a minimum, that some sort of mission of a criminal nature, directed at Mr. Khashoggi, was being launched."

Critics lament as 126 House Democrats join forces with GOP to hand Trump ‘terrifying’ mass domestic spying powers

Published

on

Privacy advocates and civil liberties defenders are expressing outrage after the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday night voted down a bipartisan amendment designed to end, as one group put it, the U.S. government's "most egregious mass surveillance practices" first revealed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.

In a final vote of 253-175, it was 126 Democrats who joined with 127 Republicans to vote against an amendment introduced by Rep Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) that would have closed loopholes in Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that critics charge has allowed the NSA to abuse warrantless surveillance capabilities and target the emails, text messages, and internet activity of U.S. citizens and residents. See the full roll call here.

Pilots, including Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III, tell US Congress more training needed on 737 MAX

Published

on

US pilots called Wednesday for enhanced pilot training on the Boeing 737 MAX before the aircraft is returned to service after being grounded worldwide following two deadly crashes.

The pilots -- including Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III, who famously landed a damaged plane on the Hudson River in New York in 2009 -- pushed back against the aviation giant's assurances that pilots will only need to review the 737 MAX modifications in a computer program.

Daniel Carey, president of the Allied Pilots Association, told a congressional panel he was encouraged by changes Boeing made to a flight system seen as a factor in both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes that killed 346 people.
