‘They remain in federal custody’: SDNY tells Maddow that Giuliani henchmen are still locked up

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday reported at the beginning of her show that two associates of Rudy Giuliani had been released on $1 million bail.

The host had started her show by citing a Wall Street Journal report that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, “were released on $1 million bonds and haven’t yet entered pleas. They are scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday.”

But at the end of her show, Maddow issued a correction.

“We are just about done for tonight, but I have to make a correction before we go. This is interesting. At the top of the show I cited the Wall Street Journal reported that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman had been released on million dollars bail,” Maddow said. “That said, it turns out not to be correct.”

“We are told by the Southern District of New York — just moments ago — that despite the fact they have had the conditions for their bail set, they are not out,” Maddow reported.

She read a statement from prosecutors.

“They haven’t met the requirements of their bail. They remain in federal custody,” SDNY spokesperson Nick Biase said.

Maddow found the statement to be “intriguing.”

“We never get a call from SDNY,” Maddow noted. “Getting a call from them in the middle of the show was like, okay, got it.”

“We are leaving," one of the younger women tells the doctor. "Please let’s not cuss at each other.”

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money

Published

on

Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump. He doesn't care about you or the country. He only cares about exploiting this crisis to bail out his business and to get himself re-elected, thereby shielding himself from a series of indictments that surely await him if he loses. The sooner we embrace this easily-observable fact about Trump, the better equipped we'll be to evaluate his decisions during these overlapping health and financial calamities.

The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.

New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work

Published

The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.

Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.

"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
