Virginia Capitol Police officer placed on leave after being accused of white supremacist ties

Published

on

A Virginia Capitol Police sergeant has been placed on administration leave over his alleged ties to white nationalist groups.

Sgt. Robert Stamm was outed as a possible white nationalist by the Antifa Seven Hills group, which examined his social media history after an activist spotted a bandage covering a neck tattoo that they claimed was a Nazi symbol.

A search of his Facebook profile showed Stamm, previously known as Robert Goward, had gotten an anchor tattoo to cover up a wolfsangel, an early symbol of the Nazi Party used by German SS troops during World War II.

The antifa group also claimed photographs of Stamm in front of a Thin Blue Line “Punisher” flag and the flag of Viking king Ragnar Lothbrok were evidence he had an affinity for white nationalist groups.

The officer also appears to be associated with the Asatru Folk Assembly, a neo-pagan organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center has described as a hate group.

Stamm, who has been with the Capitol Police since 2014, was placed on paid leave during the investigation of a possible violation of division police, reported WTVR-TV.

He was promoted to sergeant last year, and has completed a one-week course at FBI National Academy for front-line supervisors in law enforcement.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
