More Proud Boys charged for Manhattan riot — including secret unnamed indictments

Published

on

Court records show that eight members of the far-right “Proud Boys” group have been charged over their alleged involvement in an October street brawl with anti-fascist protesters in New York City.

Data scientist and hate group researcher Emily Gorcenski noted on Twitter that there appear to be two more names added to the list of defendants for the October 12 fight that went largely ignored by the NYPD at the time.

“New York State court records show two more names on the Proud Boy case number: Jake Freijo and Erik Kaczynski,” Gorcenski tweeted alongside a screenshot of all the defendants’ names.

In subsequent tweets, the data scientist said the two additional Proud Boys face charges similar to the other group members related to rioting and assault.

Until Gorcenski publicized the updated defendant list, it was only known that six Proud Boys had been charged in relation to the brawl.

In a video announcing his resignation from the group, Vice co-founder and Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes referred to the “NYC 9” who were charged for the fight.

It remains unclear who the ninth defendant may be.

McInnes said in his resignation video that he was “reluctantly” quitting to help “alleviate [the members’] sentencing” and prove that the Proud Boys are not a “gang.” He released the video days after news broke that the FBI considers the group “extremists” with “ties to white nationalism.”

Trump wants to wriggle out of impeachment by suing ‘everybody’ who makes him angry

Published

President Donald Trump wants to sue his way out of impeachment, just like he got himself out of jams before he entered the White House.

The president has been obsessed with undercover recordings by the right-wing Project Veritas outfit that misleadingly suggests an anti-Trump conspiracy by CNN president Jeff Zucker, and he has been privately ranting for days about the audio and video recordings, reported The Daily Beast.

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates?

Published

on

Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.

Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points in the Dow.

Trump Jr. and McGahn didn’t testify before the Mueller grand jury — and a federal judge wants to know why

Published

on

During the Russia investigation, former special counsel Robert Mueller sought testimony from a long list of people. But according to a court filing on Sunday, two people who Mueller did not force to testify before a grand jury were Donald Trump Jr. and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. And U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell wants to know why.

The court filing on Sunday, according to The Week, was in response to a ruling Howell made on Thursday — when Howell asserted that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was withholding too much information from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York. The House Judiciary Committee, The Week’s Peter Weber reports, has been “wrangling” with DOJ over the evidence that Mueller obtained during his lengthy investigation.
