    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that he would support an effort by Senate Democrats to refuse a vote on President Trump's nominee to be the new director of the FBI if a special prosecutor is not named to investigate Russian involvement in the 2017 campaign.Politico: The notion that Democrats might refuse to vote on any nominee put forward by Trump to be the bureau’s director was first floated last week by a handful of lawmakers including Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). Schumer, who spoke...

    Remember when we talked about Florida State Attorney Aramis Ayala last month? She was assigned the case of Markeith Loyd, a man whose many crimes included executing a police officer in cold blood. Without any warning of her position while running for that office, Aramis declared that she would not seek the death penalty in Loyd’s trial and, just to put some icing on the cake, announced that she wouldn’t be taking that step for any criminals, no matter how heinous their deeds. That got her into a confrontation with Governor Rick Scott (along with an army of enraged constituents)...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would consider having outside counsel review actions taken by the Justice Department under the Obama administration — including an examination of charges that the IRS was engaging in politically-motivated investigations, and a probe of the department’s handling of an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. In an interview Thursday with conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt, the attorney general was asked whether he might investigate how the Justice Department was run under his predecessors, Attorneys General Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder. “How about an outside counsel,...

    A few dozen inmates who remain locked up in Cook County Jail because they’re too poor to post their relatively low bonds may be out soon under a new program State’s Attorney Kim Foxx announced for indigent, nonviolent offenders Wednesday. After the Cook County Sheriff’s Office singled out 50 cases of those who were “languishing” in jail for several months because of their inability to post $1,000 or less, the State’s Attorney and Public Defender’s offices came together to identify those inmates who would be better served outside jail, Foxx said. Through “agreed motions” requesting I-bonds, the inmates who qualify...

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

    Baltimore police lieutenant cleared in Freddie Gray death By David K. Li July 18, 2016 | 10:42am Baltimore police lieutenant cleared in Freddie Gray death A Baltimore judge on Monday cleared the highest-ranking cop tied to Freddie Gray’s death. Lt. Brian Rice was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in a bench trial before Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams. Prosecutors had blamed Rice for Gray’s death because he did not put a seat belt on the prisoner when Gray was loaded into the back of a police van. Gray, 25, died from spinal cord injuries he...

In addition, she charges that Fitzgerald manipulated her into incorrectly testifying about a critical conversation she had with Libby and withheld exculpatory evidence from both her and the defense in order to induce her mistaken testimony – testimony the prosecution knew was made because she was acting under a false belief....[must read snip]....Rizzo, of course, is focused only...

Further, he said that some of these charges are utterly absurd and that this prosecution is all about politics. Levin says this prosecutor a hack and a disgrace and calls into question whether she should even be prosecuting this case. Listen below as...

    DETROIT (Reuters) - A Detroit prosecutor who said on Facebook that people involved in Baltimore rioting should be shot has resigned, after her comments ignited fierce criticism, the prosecutor's office said on Friday. Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Teana Walsh had posted comments about this week's unrest in Baltimore, which was sparked by the death of Freddie Gray after he was fatally injured in police custody, according to a screenshot of her page posted on MyFox Detroit.com. She described "large swarms of people throwing bricks etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults" and then suggested using guns. "Simple. Shoot...
