Mueller slaps former aide to Trump ally Roger Stone with grand jury subpoena

Published

on

Andrew Miller, a former aide to longtime Trump ally Roger Stone, has been hit with a grand jury subpoena by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The New York Times reports that Miller has been “subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury hearing evidence in the Russia investigation and to hand over documents.”

However, Miller’s attorney is working to get Mueller’s subpoena of his client shot down.

The right-wing National Legal and Policy Center, which is funding Miller’s defense, tells the Times that its goal is nothing less than shutting down the entire Mueller probe.

“The founders feared exactly what we see in Mueller: a runaway federal official,” the organization said. “We hope to see Mueller’s operation disbanded, once and for all.”

Stone has become a recent focus of Mueller’s probe — and he has publicly admitted now that he met with a man claiming to be a Russian agent who promised him dirt on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Additionally, Stone told one of his associates that he “dined” with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to discuss obtaining dirt on Clinton, although Stone has since claimed that he was lying about being in direct contact with Assange.

Previously, Stone had denied having any contact with any Russians during the 2016 campaign, although recently revelations have shown that this assertion was flat-out untrue.

According to a report from Cincinnati.com, Conway attacked the leading Democratic presidential nominees before making her claim.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”

Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam

Published

on

The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.

The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.

Wall Street is ignoring the omens of recession — here’s why

Published

on

The Federal Reserve seems a lot more concerned about the state of the economy than it’s been letting on.

The Fed lowered its target interest rate by a quarter point on Sept. 18, the second such cut since July – and the first reductions since the Great Recession more than 10 years ago.

Judging by the words of Fed Chair Jerome Powell, this isn’t that big a deal. In his statement following the decision, he said: “We took this step to help keep the U.S. economy strong in the face of some notable developments and to provide insurance against ongoing risks.”
