Published

on

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has referred Blackwater founder Eric Prince for prosecution.

On Tuesday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent a four-page letter to Attorney General Bill Barr, urging him to open an investigation into the matter. The four-page letter has a sixteen-page appendix laying out their charges.

Prince is a close Trump advisor whose sister is Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Schiff’s letter cites special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“As the report makes clear, evidence obtained by the special counsel, including statements provided to the special counsel by both Mr. Prince and Mr. [George] Nadler, differs materially from Mr. Prince’s testimony, under oath, before the committee on November 30, 2019,” Schiff wrote.

“The report reveals that Mr. Prince’s testimony before the committee was replete with manifest and substantial falsehoods that materially impaired the committee’s investigation,” he explained.

The letter details six alleged lies to Congress about Prince’s meeting with Russian oligarch Kirill Dmitriev in the Seychelles.

Summary of perjury allegations against Eric Prince release in their criminal referral to the Department of Justice.

Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

Tennessee Christians are replacing health insurance with ‘sharing ministries’ that require people to live Godly lives: report

Published

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."
