Secret Service agents are preventing Trump rape accuser from delivering defamation suit

Published

on

President Donald Trump is trying to evade service of a lawsuit filed by one of his rape accusers — and the woman’s lawyer is seeking a creative workaround.

Author and journalist E. Jean Carroll has filed a defamation suit against the president related to comments he made about her after she accused him of raping her more than 20 years ago in a New York City department store dressing room.

But Carroll’s attorney Robbie Kaplan has been unable to serve the civil suit to Trump through a process server, as she explains in a new court filing.

Carroll made four separate attempts to serve the complaint at Trump Tower because Secret Service agents would not permit the process server to leave the documents, Kaplan writes in the motion.

“That Carroll was barred from serving Trump at the very location from which he released a statement deeming her lawsuit ‘frivolous’ underscores the unfairness of the present situation,” Kaplan wrote.

Kaplan asked a judge to let her serve the documents via email so the suit can move forward.

George Conway, the conservative attorney and husband of White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, had a better idea.

“Personally, I think the court should deny this request. Instead, the court should order that (Kaplan) be allowed to tweet her papers (at Trump),” Conway tweeted. “That would be justice.”

Intel official who briefed lawmakers on latest Russian meddling targeted for ouster by Trump White House: CNN

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."

Trump’s latest national security adviser is undercutting FBI Director Wray to quash report of new Russian meddling: report

Published

on

In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.

According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."

Decoding the Christian paradox: Evangelical historian explains how right-wingers ignore Jesus to support a corrupt and greedy president

Published

on

To quote the bumper sticker: "What would Jesus do?"

Assuming that he existed and held the views imputed to him, Jesus Christ would not support Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's behavior, values, policies and their consequences are the opposite of what Jesus Christ represented. Trump has put migrants and refugees in cages and delighted in their suffering. He feels contempt for the poor, the sick, the vulnerable and the needy. He has lied at least 16,000 times. He is corrupt and wildly greedy.
