    The Portland Mercury ^ | 11 Aug 2020 | Blair Stenvick and Alex Zielinski
    Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has announced a new policy that will limit the types of charges pressed against protesters in Portland. Schmidt announced at a Tuesday press conference that he is only pressing charges against protesters arrested for assault, theft, or property damage. That means he'll be dropping lesser charges that the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) often arrests protesters for, such as rioting, disorderly conduct, and "interfering with a peace officer"—a catch-all term for not following orders or bothering a cop. The policy will apply to all protest charges dating back ...

    Fox News host Mark Levin blasted the Washington Post’s coverage of his interview with Attorney General William Barr as a “shocking lie” in a series of scathing tweets on Monday. Levin sat down with Barr on Sunday’s edition of “Life, Liberty & Levin” in a news-making interview in which the country's top law enforcement officer discussed the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through U.S. cities. He told Levin that the organization – which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group – is comprised of "Bolsheviks" with a focus on "some form of socialism, communism." "They...

    Can someone please fire Christopher Wray already? Please? – Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri assigned by AG William Barr to review the DOJ’s despicable conduct of the Mike Flynn frame-up case earlier this year, came through again today with the revelation of more potentially exculpatory documents that had been withheld from Flynn’s lawyers by the FBI. The documents include handwritten notes from both FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar related to the January 25, 2017 meeting in which Strzok and fellow FBI agent Joe Pientka attempted to...

    The newly-declassified handwritten notes by notorious former FBI agent Peter Strzok memorialized the crucial Jan. 5, 2017, meeting at the Obama White House, according to Attorney General William Barr. Upon their release as part of the lawsuit against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on June 24, Strzok’s notes did not bear a date. In a court filing, Flynn’s attorneys said the notes appear to have been taken on Jan. 4, 2017. Barr’s revelation of the date and location of the crucial meeting adds to a growing body of evidence surrounding a conversation about the investigation of Flynn held between...

The testimony comes on the same day that a D.C. Court of Appeals officially ordered the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to be thrown out because, it turns out, the Obama Justice Department had ensnared Flynn in a perjury trap. We now know that former President Obama and former Vice President Biden, along with a cadre of Obama-era White House officials, conspired to target Flynn and use the Justice Department to damage the incoming Trump administration....

Other than that, the interview on (“Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo”) was a complete snore-fest.
