Second white supremacist found guilty in group attack on a black man in Charlottesville

Published

A second white supremacist who participated in an attack on a black man at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last August has been found guilty of “malicious wounding.”

Charlottesville’s NBC29 reported Thursday that Alex Michael Ramos was found guilty less than two days after alleged white supremacist Jacob Goodwin was found guilty in the same attack on 20-year-old DeAndre Harris.

As the local NBC affiliate noted, jurors only deliberated for about 30 minutes before finding the second white supremacist guilty in the attack that, at one point, led to the victim being charged in his own assault after a white nationalist lawyer convinced a magistrate he’d been struck with Harris’ flashlight.

Three other men —  Daniel Patrick Borden, Tyler Watkins Davis, and Jacob Scott Goodwin — are also facing upcoming trials in the group assault on Harris.

Ramos’ faces five to 20 years in prison for the assault in his forthcoming sentencing hearing, as does Goodwin.

"Let's go back to reality-world instead of upside-down world right now," host Camerota smirked after rolling the clips, "which is what we just played a montage of. Charlie, when you hear, you know, the talking points from obviously the Trump cheerleaders as well as some of your former Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, do they -- when Hannity says everything we've been reporting for years has been dead on accurate, we were right every step of the way, and the report completely negates that, do they believe that? Why are they saying that?"

Published

President Donald Trump attacked his FBI director hours ahead of his White House meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, and other social media users noticed a big coincidence.

The president turned on Christopher Wray in an early morning Twitter rant after the FBI director broke with Attorney General William Barr and agreed the Justice Department's inspector general had found no evidence of wrongdoing at the start of the Russia probe.

‘Political Madness!’ Trump melts down over pending articles of impeachment release

Published

on

President Donald Trump started off Tuesday morning in a frothy rage -- hours before Democrats were scheduled to release two articles of impeachment.

House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment accusing the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and Trump raged against the constitutional process that's consuming his presidency.

"To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country’s history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!#2020Election," Trump tweeted.
