MSNBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian said Wednesday that Michael Cohen’s claim that President Donald Trump has threatened his family could leave the president exposed to another felony charge: witness tampering.
“Witness intimidation is something that the president has been accused of, and what he has been doing with Michael Cohen online,” said host Katy Tur, asking Dilanian if the president’s frequent attacks on his former fixer added up to a crime.
“Many legal experts have said on our network and other places that this could add up to witness tampering and witness intimidation,” replied Dilanian.
“[Convicted Trump presidential campaign manager Paul] Manafort was charged with witness tampering for seemingly less than this, for simply articulating a false story to a witness,” he continued. “Perhaps this will be a subject of the long awaited report by special counsel Robert Mueller, whether this fits into the pattern of obstruction of justice that Mueller appears to be investigating.”

On Saturday, the Atlanta Black Star reported an incident in Florida, in which a white woman screamed racial slurs at a black woman at a Publix supermarket in Miami after their shopping carts jostled each other.

Johnson whipped out her cell phone camera, and began recording the incident, saying "You, why don't you call me a n****r again?"
"You thinking I'm sorry?" snapped the woman. "Let me tell you something, I don't have to call you anything. Get away from me, I will call security and there are surveillance videos. Get away from me!"
‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
