Here is the Republican operative that is the new poster boy for why Trump was impeached

Published

on

The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday transmitted a huge cache of evidence from Lev Parnas to the House Judiciary Committee.

Parnas, an indicted associate of Donald Trump defense attorney Rudy Giuliani, is a key figure in the upcoming impeachment trial.

Robert Hyde, who is running to represent Connecticut’s fifth congressional district in the 2020 election, features heavily in the documents.

“Hyde is 40 and a resident of Simsbury and a Republican who is running for Congress in Connecticut’s 5th District. He is a relative unknown who hopes to unseat Rep. Jahana Hayes, a Democrat,” the Hartford Courant reports. “Hyde made headlines last month after he posted a sexist and vulgar tweet about California Sen. Kamala Harris. On Dec. 3, after Harris suspended her presidential campaign, Hyde posted this on Twitter: ‘went down, brought to her knees. Blew it,’ Hyde tweeted. ‘Must be a hard one to swallow. #KamalaHarris #heelsup’”

“In May, Hyde was removed by police from Trump National Doral Miami in Florida. According to an incident report filed by the Doral police department, Hyde told the responding officer that he was in fear for his life and ‘a hit man was out to get him.’ Hyde gave police with a variety of names and contacts to provide information about why he felt his life was in danger,” the newspaper reported.

“He was not arrested. Police escorted him from the hotel and transported him to an undisclosed location. In the vehicle, Hyde said his computer had been hacked by the Secret Service and that the Secret Service was watching him at the premises, according to the incident report,” the newspaper added.

Hyde has also made interesting choices as to how he has prioritized his expenses.

“Hyde donated at least $2,000 to Trump’s reelection fund and at least $750 to the Connecticut Republican Party, according to the FEC,” the Courant reported. “Hyde owed the mother of his 13-year-old son more than $2,000 in child support, according to court records, even as he continued to donate thousands to President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee.”

GOP senator baffled by Jared Kushner’s national stockpile claims — and vows to probe ventilator ‘mismanagement’

Published

on

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) does not seem happy with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and his claims that the Strategic National Stockpile's supply of ventilators is "not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use."

In an interview with Politico, Gardner said that he wanted to investigate whether the national stockpile has been mismanaged during the COVID-19 pandemic, and he vowed that "any kind of mismanagement or abuse needs to be rooted out and those responsible held accountable."

Epidemiologist delivers a chilling warning as he dismantles the White House’s overly optimistic coronavirus projections

Published

on

During an appearance on CNN this Friday, infectious disease epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm warned viewers that "this is just the beginning" of the coronavirus health crisis and that we're going to see it continue to spread throughout the U.S., adding that people are underestimating just how the long the outbreak could last.

"I think one thing that's really being missed here is that if you look at 1918 and the big influenza pandemic that occurred then, that lasted until almost 1920 before finally most people were infected and therefore became immune or died," he said. "And what we're talking about here is this is not the next couple of weeks -- we're talking about months and months, and we're already running out of supplies now, and much of the rest of the country won't even have the supplies New York has when their first wave was up and active."

John Hopkins’ coronavirus data indicates that the US could ultimately end up even worse off than Spain and Italy

Published

on

Back in January and February, President Donald Trump and his sycophants in the right-wing media insisted that the deadly COVID-19 strain of coronavirus did not pose a major threat to the United States. But according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the U.S. is now #3 in coronavirus deaths. And when one closely examines Hopkins data, it becomes painfully clear that the U.S. might be moving into the #1 position in the weeks ahead — and why Dr. Anthony Fauci, expert immunologist, is warning that the U.S. could be looking at 100,000-240,000 deaths from COVID-19 when all is said and done.
