A couple in Ottawa hit a woman with their car, hurled racist insults at her and hit her arm when she tried to record the incident, reports CTV News.
Jenny Dao was returning to her car with her family after celebrating her grandmother’s 88th birthday at a restaurant. They were getting into the vehicle when a couple in another car impatiently motioned for them to go fast so they could park. Dao says the couple bumped her with their car.
“He proceeded to drive towards me until I ended up on top of his car. He made contact with me until I was on top of his car so I hit his car to tell him to stop,” she told CTV News. “I said, ‘Are you crazy? I have my baby and my mom and grandmother with me.'”
They started hurling racist abuse at her. “Once they told me to “Go back to your country you Chinese Ch*nk B*tch”, I decided to capture their license plate and the following assault ensued in this video,” she wrote on Facebook. “The most offensive part is that this all happened as I had baby with me!”
The brief recording shows the woman trying to knock the phone out of her hand, but hitting her arm instead. She then proceeds to bark fake Chinese at her. Dao filed a police report and wants the couple to apologize.
“Let social justice take its course,” she wrote on Facebook. “I hope they will NEVER have the opportunity to do this to someone else whether they be from Asian or a different descent.”
It’s hard to argue Trump was innocent when Rudy Giuliani is in Ukraine to keep it going: Former US Attorney
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara explained Friday that it's difficult for President Donald Trump to claim he is innocent of attempting to bribe Ukraine when his own lawyer just returned from trying to dig up more dirt on the son of his opponent.
"Isn't this what got the president in trouble in the first place?" CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Bharara.
"Yes, it actually is," Bharara said simply. "I don't know exactly what's going on here. I think Rudy Giuliani wants to be close to the president and help the president and argue on behalf of the president. There are a lot of implications that Rudy Giuliani is doing going on forays back to Ukraine, which some people would call the scene of the crime. It causes more scrutiny to be brought upon him. We've seen reported he's under investigation himself, and I think it raises eyebrows in the political sphere. But I think something important about it relates to impeachment."
‘Moscow Mitch’ blunder means Donald Trump can never be vindicated: Harvard Law’s Laurence Tribe
Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for violating a legal principle that has existed for over 1,000 -- and his move means that President Donald Trump can never be vindicated during impeachment.
Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law School for 50 years and argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court, has been advising Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats during the impeachment inquiry. He was interviewed on Friday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.
Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."
Democrats ‘are being more republican than Republicans’ in Judiciary Committee memo: Post columnist
A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.
"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.
