‘He’s proclaimed his innocence’: Trump weighs in on Patriots’ owner prostitution charge and Acosta pedophile deal

‘He’s Proclaimed His Innocence, Totally’

President Donald Trump has just weighed in on several sex scandals in today’s news, sex scandals surrounding two powerful billionaires. People in the cases are close to him. Unsurprisingly, he’s supporting those accused of wrongdoing.

“I really don’t know too much about it,” President Trump said Friday afternoon when asked about allegations his Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta delivered an illegal sweetheart deal to billionaire serial pedophile rapist Jeffrey Epstein a decade ago, when Acosta was a U.S. Attorney.

“I know he’s done a great job as labor secretary and that seems like a long time ago,” Trump added.

Asked about news that the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots was arrested for solicitation of prostitution, the President replied he’s very sad, but then defended him.

“He’s proclaimed his innocence, totally,” Trump said of the Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, who is a close friend and ally of Trump’s.

It’s important to note the circumstances surrounding the case against Kraft. He was arrested “after a several-month investigation revealed women [at the spa] were in ‘sexual servitude,”‘ according to arrest records.

“Women, many of them from China, lived inside and were not permitted to leave,” TCPalm, a USA Today affiliate, reports. One sheriff “said he believes women in the spas were supplied by human traffickers with ties to China and New York.”

President Trump likes to use the terms human trafficking and sex trafficking as arguments to build his wall, but when he’s confronted with actual cases that affect his friends, he looks the other way.

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will give up their royal titles and public funding as part of a settlement with the Queen to start a new life away from the British monarchy.

The historic announcement from Buckingham Palace on Saturday follows more than a week of intense private talks aimed at managing the fallout of the globetrotting couple's shock resignation from front-line royal duties.

It means Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry and his American TV actress wife Meghan will stop using the titles "royal highness" -- the same fate that befell his late mother Princess Diana after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996.

Published

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) spoke to local reporters on Saturday about her role in the upcoming Donald Trump impeachment trial.

Murkowski explained she would likely vote with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on an initial vote on whether to allow witnesses. However, she left the door open to voting for witnesses after House impeachment managers make their opening case.

"I don't know what more we need until I have been given the base case," she said. "We will have that opportunity to say 'yes' or 'no' ... and if we say 'yes,' the floor is open."

Overall, Murkowski said it was important for the trial to been viewed as fair.

Published

on

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was blasted on Saturday over the confusion resulting from her refusal to hold daily press briefings.

CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was alarmed that Grisham's assistant, Hogan Gidley, was forcing reporters to refer to his remarks as coming from a "sources close to the President's legal team."

Darcy noted that Trump had repeatedly questioned the veracity of unnamed sources, making it problematic for Gidley to demand to be quoted as such.

Grisham responded to the criticism and asked Darcy to "stop with the righteous indignation.
