Tennessee woman claims group of men harassed her while voting — and told her she should be deported

Published

Police in Tennessee are investigating a woman’s claims that she was harassed while voting by a group of men who told her that she deserved to be deported.

The Tennessean reports that the woman claims to have been confronted by a group of five or six men as she was leaving her polling place.

The men asked her if she voted, and when she said that she did, they proceeded to insult her.

“They said she should be deported and that it was basically her fault the country was falling apart,” Jacob Murrell, the spokesman for Sumner County Democratic Party, told the Tennessean.

It’s unclear why they told her that she should be deported, although the Tennessean notes that the woman originally hailed from Hawaii.

Murrell said that he received a phone call about the alleged encounter from a witness who said the men were waiting in a parking lot and targeting certain voters going into the polling place.

Hendersonville Police Department Sgt. Neal Harris tells the Tennessean that his department originally received a call about an incident at the polling place, although he says the caller did not provide enough specifics to investigate.

“We’re trying to get to the bottom of this to see if there is anything to investigate,” he tells the publication.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.
