Ilhan Omar’s GOP challenger wanted on arrest warrant after skipping court date

Published

on

On Wednesday, City Pages reported that Danielle Stella, the Republican challenger to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), faces an arrest warrant after she skipped her court date.

Stella, an avid Trump supporter who has said she “100 percent backs” the QAnon conspiracy theory Trump is trying to take down a world-spanning child sex trafficking ring led by Democrats, was originally arrested this summer on felony theft charges, after she allegedly tried to shoplift 279 items from a Target store, worth around $2,300. Stella has denied the charge, claiming she was suffering a PTSD episode at the time and had no recollection of trying to leave the store with the items.

Ironically, Stella has blasted Minneapolis on the campaign trail as “the crime capital of our country” and said that its crime rate has risen 80 percent since 2017, neither of which is true.

Omar, the first Somali-American woman to be elected to Congress, represents a safely Democratic District in the Twin Cities. One of a group of progressive freshman women of color known as the “Squad,” Omar has become a favorite villain of the right due to her criticism of Israel and conspiracy theories about her family.

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

McConnell bluntly defends working with Trump to undermine impeachment: ‘We’re on the same side’

Published

Speaking in Kentucky on Friday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blithely blew off concerns about coordinating with Donald Trump's White House on how to handle the president's defense in the expected impeachment trial.

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.
