Struggling to gain ground on Joe Biden, President Donald Trump is running against Hillary Clinton again. This time, he’s getting his dutiful secretary of State in on the act.Mike Pompeo told the president’s supporters at Fox News that he was working to release emails from former Secretary of State Clinton into the public eye.“We’ve got the emails, we’re getting them out,” Pompeo said during a Friday appearance on the right-wing cable channel. “We’ll get all of this information out so the American people can see it.”Pompeo’s appearance came a day after the president complained to Fox Business t...
Attorney Charles Peruto, Jr. is challenging Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, a progressive reformer.
"I have entered this race as a Republican because it is my belief the other fine Democratic candidates for District Attorney running against Krasner will eventually lose, because of the money behind him put up by George Soros," Peruto explains on his campaign website. "Having the firm belief that Larry Krasner will be the Democratic nominee, because of the millions he is able to spend, and the misinformation fed to the public by our liberal newspapers, I stand ready, willing, and able to face him in the Fall general election, and he won't know what hit him. We will be building a website with real facts from real cases with their outcome involving guns and gun violence."
He has built an interesting website:
"There shouldn't have to be a section for this on anyone's campaign site, but because some people will not let this go away, I must address it," he wrote. "In 2013, I was dating a girl for about 6 weeks, and didn't really know her."
"In short, the best way to start with this is the Medical Examiner's report. She was a .45 BAC. That means that 45% of her blood was alcohol!!! The cause of death was alcohol intoxication, but because she was found in my tub, everyone, including myself, assumed she drowned," he said. "The long story short is that I was not her only boyfriend, but it was my apartment where she expired. If it was another boyfriend's apartment, you would have never heard of the case."
Here's how the legal website Above The Law explained the case in 2014.
"Last May, a 26-year-old paralegal by the name of Julia Papazian Law was found dead in the bathtub of her boss and boyfriend, prominent Philadelphia defense attorney A. Charles Peruto Jr. The news set tongues wagging in Philly. It had all the elements of a tabloid tale: a beautiful young woman, a wealthy and successful lawyer, and possible organized-crime connections. (Peruto has represented such prominent alleged Mob figures as Joey Merlino and Nicodemo Scarfo.) Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams convened a grand jury to investigate Julia Law's death," David Lat wrote.
But in the end, Williams issued a one line statement: "The investigation into the death of Julia Law has concluded and there was no evidence of criminal activity found."
Ron DeSantis committing 'absolutely unforgivable' mistake threatening Florida's economy: Miami mayor
The mayor of Miami-Dade County in Florida called out the state's GOP governor during a Friday appearance on CNN.
"Is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis about to lose Norwegian Cruise Lines from operating in Florida?" CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked. "Last month, DeSantis signed an executive order banning private companies from requiring proof of vaccination. Well yesterday, the CEO of Norwegian Cruises was his company may suspend cruises from Florida as a result."
Camerota interviewed Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
"Explain what happens if Norwegian Cruises pulls from there," Camerota said.
"This would really be devastating," the mayor replied. "We are the cruising capital of the world, we depend on these cruises."
"We're talking about tens of thousands of jobs," she explained. "It's not just those on the ships themselves, it's the ancillary economy, those that produce for the ships, it's the tourism that results from people coming into Miami-Dade county. We're talking about billions of dollars of impact on our local economy."
Camerota noted the county had just spent $263 million building a new terminal for the company.
"How do you recoup the money if they decide not to cruise from there anymore?" Camerota asked.
"We cannot," the mayor replied. "This is absolutely unforgivable."

New reporting is coming out on the scope of the federal investigation into former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
"Since at least October 2019, federal investigations have been looking into Rudy Giuliani's effort to convince the White House and a reluctant State Department to grant a visa to a former Ukraine official, according to two people briefed on the matter. These sources tell The Daily Beast that the visa issue is one aspect of the federal probe into whether Giuliani's efforts during the Trump-Ukraine saga constituted illegal lobbying on behalf of foreign officials or individuals. According to people with knowledge of the matter, including Giuliani's own legal team, federal investigators are also investigating his attempt to get the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch fired," The Beast reported Friday evening.
In April, the FBI executed search warrants on Giuliani's Manhattan apartment and office.
"The feds are reportedly working to determine if Giuliani's Ukraine work ran afoul of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which demands Americans register with the Justice Department when lobbying on behalf of foreign interests. The former New York mayor and Donald Trump attorney and confidant has yet to be charged with a crime in this investigation, but the probe already resulted in the raid on Giuliani's office and apartment late last month," The Beast reported. "Giuliani's efforts to secure a visa for at least one Ukrainian official, the controversial former prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, became well known during the first Trump impeachment trial. Shokin's name appeared as one of 12 people whose communications with Giuliani prosecutors sought under a search warrant executed by the FBI at the former mayor's apartment late last month."
