Jeffrey Epstein was found injured on the floor of his prison cell: report

Published

on

NBC New York is reporting that accused child rapist and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found injured on the floor of his prison cell Wednesday.

NBC cited two sources saying that the injuries may have been a suicide attempt. However, a different source told NBC said that the injuries were so minor it could have been an attempt to be sent to a better jail or a fancier prison cell.

Assault also hasn’t been ruled out. There is data that supports claims men accused or convicted of sex crimes with children are the target of violence behind bars. A fourth source said that a former police officer serving time for murder and drugs was questioned about the incident.

Two of the four sources identified the former police officer as Nicholas Tartaglione, who was arrested in Dec. 2016 for killing four men in a drug distribution conspiracy, NBC said citing court documents.

“The attorney for Tartaglione denied all the claims that his client attacked the financier, saying his client and Epstein get along well. The attorney added Epstein was seen today and appears to be fine,” NBC New York reported.

“They are in the same unit and doing well,” said attorney Bruce Barket. He went on to say that any claim that Tartaglione assaulted Epstein “is absolutely not true.”

The report also cited two sources that say Epstein is now on suicide watch inside the jail. The Bureau of Prisons hasn’t responded to requests for further information.

Trump declares impeachment ‘dead’ — and demands apology — in late night Twitter outburst

Published

President Donald Trump lashed out on his favorite social media platform late Thursday evening.

Eight minutes before midnight eastern time, Trump unloaded.

Trump wrote, "Democrats must apologize to USA: Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that 'United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did NOT link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former V.P. Joe Biden & his son, Hunter Biden. Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigation.'”

Trump did not say why he was taking the word of a foreign official over multiple sworn testimonies from members of his own administration.

Pelosi is ‘marrying up the facts and the law’: Ex-prosecutor says ‘bribery’ is a critical indictment of Trump

Published

on

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was masterful in using the word "bribery" to describe President Donald Trump's actions with Ukraine that are at the heart of the impeachment inquiry, according to a former federal prosecutor.

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams interviewed former Assistant U.S. Attorney Berit Berger on Thursday evening's "The Last Word."

Please expand for us on why it is significant and why is it important to label this bribery," Williams said.

"So I think Nancy Pelosi was very specific in calling this bribery for two reasons," Berger replied.

"The first is that -- unlike quid pro quo -- ribery is something that most people understand, especially people who have children," she said, with a chuckle. "We all sort of have a general understanding of that."

Published

Yet another bombshell report has shed new light on President Donald Trump's suspicious Ukraine policies.

"At the same time that Rudy Giuliani and his now-indicted pals were pushing for President Donald Trump to remove Amb. Marie Yovanovitch from her post in Ukraine, Trump administration officials were eyeing potential contenders to take over her job. One of the people in the mix, according to three sources familiar with the discussions, was Rep. Pete Sessions, a former Congressman who called for Yovanovitch’s firing," The Daily Beast reported Thursday night. "He is also a longtime ally of the former New York Mayor, and is believed to have taken millions of dollars from Giuliani’s indicted cronies."
