Colorado Dem candidate shot at while sitting in her truck — and she says she’s been getting harassed for months

Published

Rebecca Cranston, a Democratic candidate for state senate in Colorado, has told police that someone shot at her truck almost as soon as she parked it in her driveway last week.

Coloradoan reports that Cranston was sitting in her driveway talking on her phone when she heard a loud noise.

“It didn’t occur to me that it would be a gunshot at first, until we saw the bullet hole,” she explained.

According to Coloradoan, “it’s not clear if Rebecca Cranston… was targeted or if the shooting was related to other reported shootings in northwest Fort Collins,” where the Democratic candidate resides.

Cranston reported the shooting to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, which says that it is in the initial stages of investigating the shooting, which may be related to two other unsolved shootings that occurred in the area earlier this spring.

Cranston claims that she has been subjected to harassment during the course of her campaign, which she said has included people staking out her house and stealing her mail.

“I don’t really feel safe here, frankly,” she said.

Writing on Facebook Wednesday, Cranston further said that “in the last 9 months, I have filed 3 police reports following disturbing incidences of harassment, including someone following and photographing me and my home.”

She did add, however, that she does not believe her Republican opponent, Rob Woodward, had anything to do with the shooting that took place at her house.

HBO’s ‘Real Time’ panel provides roadmap for Democrats to get DNI’s Ukraine report and speed-up impeachment

During the "Overtime" segment of HBO's "Real Time," Bill Maher and his guests took up the problems the Democrats are having acquiring Donald Trump'stax returns as well as other documents they need if they are going to impeach the president.

Responding to a question over whether the state of New York will indict the president, the conversation turned to prosecutors seeking Trump's taxes.

According to presidential historian Tim Naftali, there is precedent allowing the acquisition.

"Is it really that hard to get somebody's frigging, f*cking taxes? " host Bill Maher asked.

"Actually, there is a precedent," Naftali explained. "If the House started on the impeachment hearings, they could act on the precedent of 1974, where Nixon's taxes were turned over to the impeachment committee. So there is a precedent, but they have to make the decision that they are having an impeachment inquiry."

Trump slams ‘partisan’ whistleblower, Biden pushes back

Published

on

US President Donald Trump on Friday vigorously rejected a whistleblower's claim of wrongdoing, amid reports he used a call with Ukraine's president to pressure him to investigate the son of Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The whistleblower's secret complaint has triggered a tense showdown between Congress, whose Democratic leaders are demanding to review the complaint, and the executive branch which has barred them from doing so.

It has also raised concerns Trump sought to strong-arm Ukraine into providing damaging information on the president's possible 2020 challenger, which would represent dangerous foreign meddling in the US election -- similar to the interference blamed on Russia in 2016, when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

And Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, in a USA Today op-ed published on Friday, argued that Kavanaugh wasn’t adequately vetted as he should have been.
