Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson implicated in newly unsealed Jeffrey Epstein docs

Published

Bill Richardson, the former Democratic governor of New Mexico, has been implicated in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal trafficking scandal.

The Daily Beast reports that newly unsealed court documents show that Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre claims that Epstein and accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell ordered her to have sex with several powerful men, including Richardson.

Other men named by Giuffre include Britain’s Prince Andrew, former Democratic Sen. George Mitchell, financier Glenn Dubin, the late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, and modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel.

“In a videotaped deposition — excerpts of which were included in the documents unsealed Friday — Giuffre said that Maxwell would send her to have erotic ‘massages’ and sexual encounters with various powerful men — from a hotel owner in France (an incident she places ‘around the same time that Naomi Campbell had a birthday party’) to politician Richardson to Dubin, a financier who is married to Epstein’s former girlfriend Eva Andersson-Dubin,” the Daily Beast reports.

The Daily Beast notes that none of the men named by Giuffre have been charged with any sex crimes, nor have they been hit with civil lawsuits over their ties to Epstein, who last year was arrested and charged with operating a sex trafficking ring involving underage girls.

He starts off his column by chiding the president and his team for trying to dishonestly claim that there was never a quid-pro-quo agreement related to military aid to Ukraine, while also trying to make the case that the president "did nothing wrong."

George Conway: GOP senators are right to fear John Bolton’s ‘devastating’ testimony

Published

on

President Donald Trump's lawyers made no mention of John Bolton in their opening statement -- but his testimony could blow up their impeachment defense.

Bolton submitted the manuscript for his new book to the White House last month for review, which likely means that at least some of the president's legal team were aware of the former national security adviser's claims, wrote attorney George Conway for the Washington Post.

Legal experts: Donald Trump cannot use ‘executive privilege’ to block John Bolton testimony

Published

on

It remains to be seen whether or not Republicans in the U.S. Senate will vote to include testimony from witnesses in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, including former National Security Adviser John Bolton — who has said that he would testify if subpoenaed. Trump has asserted that he will invoke executive privilege if Bolton or any other national security officials are called to testify. But according to an article for Just Security written by six contributors (Harold Hongju Koh, Rosa Hayes, Annie Himes, Dana Khabbaz, Michael Loughlin and Mark Stevens), U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts “should reject any such executive privilege claim” and “require Bolton’s testimony.”
