Citing First Lady Melania Trump’s campaign to end cyberbullying, Parkland survivor Lauren Hogg tagged the president’s wife in a tweet asking her to intervene after a Fox News personality attacked her brother for his gun control protests.

“HEY @FLOTUS,” the younger sister of highly-visible Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist David Hogg tweeted. “MY BROTHER IS LITERALLY GETTING CYBERBULLIED BY @IngrahamAngle.”

“ANY COMMENTS?” she asked.

Ingraham’s criticisms of the elder Hogg have ranged from a tweet earlier in the day mocking him for not getting into his first choice colleges to calling him “less than classy” for using curse words during a Fox News interview earlier in the week.

This is the second time Lauren Hogg has criticized the First Lady on Twitter. In February, shortly after the shooting, she called on her to condemn Donald Trump Jr. for liking tweets that suggested her brother was a “crisis actor.”

“You say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying, well then, don’t you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr before he liked a post about a false conspiracy theory which in turn put a target on my back,” Hogg tweeted.

The conspiracy theory “created a safe space for people all over the world to call me and my family horrific things that constantly re-victimizes us and our community,” she continued. “I’m 14 I should never have had to deal with any of this and even though I thought it couldn’t get worse it has because of your family.”

George Conway reveals Trump is being shunned by law firms because young lawyers ‘want nothing to do with him’

Published

on

Conservative attorney George Conway asserted in a column over the weekend that President Donald Trump's history of mistreating law firms is catching up with him.

In a Sunday op-ed for The Washington Post, Conway explains that Trump is now faced with sparse choices for legal representation in his impeachment trial after years of not paying attorneys and generally being a bad client.

Pointing to Trump's choice of Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth Starr, Conway writes:

?The president has consistently encountered difficulty in hiring good lawyers to defend him. In 2017, after Robert S. Mueller III became special counsel, Trump couldn’t find a high-end law firm that would take him as a client. His reputation for nonpayment preceded him: One major Manhattan firm I know had once been forced to eat bills for millions in bond work it once did for Trump. No doubt other members of the legal community knew of other examples.

Appearing on CBS's “Face the Nation," Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) attempted to blame Donald Trump's impeachment problems on "grifters" who found a way to attach themselves to the now-president when he began to run for president.

Speaking with host Margaret Brennan, Cornyn was asked about allegations made by Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas that have implicated not only the president but Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials in an attempt to strongarm the leaders of Ukraine in return for military aid.

"Doesn't it trouble you that [Parnas] was working so closely with Rudy Giuliani, who was acting on the president's behalf and saying he was acting on the president's behalf?" host Brennan asked. "

‘No sound basis’: Georgetown law professor explains why Alan Dershowitz will crumble under Senate questioning

Published

on

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."
