on

A Florida movie theater has canceled a showing of a documentary questioning the account of George Zimmerman’s fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, who was acquitted of homicide charges in the 2012 slaying, is suing Martin’s family and prosecutors for $100 million based on claims from an upcoming film, reported the Miami Herald.

The suit does not yet seem to have been filed in Polk County Circuit Court, based on the court’s online docket, and copies of the complaint were distributed to reporters by the film’s director.

Coral Gables Art Cinema, which had been planning to show the film, decided to cancel after director Joe Gilbert scheduled a news conference to coincide with the lawsuit, which is being handled by Tea Party gadfly attorney Larry Klayman.

“Coral Gables Art Cinema was not aware of all of the details surrounding this event and has made a decision to cancel it,” the theater’s account tweeted.

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
