On Wednesday, prosecutors charged Amy Cooper, the white woman who called 911 on a Black birdwatcher in Central Park, with false reporting — and according to The Daily Beast, revealed that she placed a second, even more incriminating phone call to the police.

“Cyrus R. Vance, the Manhattan district attorney, said in a statement Wednesday that Cooper allegedly ‘engaged in racist criminal conduct’ when she made a second 911 call in which she ‘falsely accused a Black man of trying to assault her,'” reported Pilar Melendez. When police arrived, she admitted that no such attempted assault had occurred.

The original video of Cooper placing the first call to police sparked nationwide outrage and resulted in her losing her job. The Black parkgoer, Christian Cooper, has urged prosecutors to show her mercy.

“Cooper is negotiating a plea deal with Manhattan prosecutors that would spare her jail time,” said the report. “[ADA Joan] Illuzzi said she is prepared to ‘take responsibility for her actions’ and will be working with her defense team to explore a rehabilitative program that would ‘educate her and the community on the harm caused by such actions.'”

He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.

‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Published

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
