Judge dismisses former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros’ sexual harassment lawsuit against network

Published

on

A federal judge rejected Andrea Tantaros’ claims against Fox News on Friday.

Tantaros a former co-host of The Five, filed a lawsuit against Fox News in April 2017. She claimed that her computer was wiretapped and that female workers were secretly recorded getting undressed in the wardrobe department.

U.S. District Court Judge George Daniels rejected the claims because it was based on “speculation” and “conjecture.”

“Even if Fox News or another Defendant was responsible for installing malware on Plaintiff’s personal computer — a conclusion for which there is scant factual support — Plaintiff’s allegations at most support an inference that Defendants had the capability to intercept her communications,” Daniels wrote in the disclosure. “Such allegations, however, are insufficient to survive a motion to dismiss.”

Tantaros’ case wasn’t strong enough because she did not have strong technical evidence to support her claims.

Daniels wrote that Tantaros: “pleads no facts to support this belief, much less ones to make her unsubstantiated allegations rise above the speculative level… Moreover, even assuming that recording equipment was installed in Plaintiff’s office and in the locations where the bi-annual trunk show were held, Plaintiff does not allege that any of her communications were actually intercepted, as required by the statute.”

The Hollywood Reporter, said that Tantaros’  also lost a claim alleging to emotional distress.

Mitch McConnell may let Republicans write Senate impeachment rules without Democratic votes

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plotting to shut out Democrats on impeachment if a bipartisan compromise on rules for the trial can't be reached.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”

Published

on

The editorial board of the Fresno Bee has written a scathing takedown of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his extraordinary fealty to President Donald Trump, which the editors say is harming the country.

Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump's most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.

"As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team," the editorial states.
