19 Women Says Trump Sexually Assaulted Them.

Lurking in the background of the roiling debate about harassment and assault in American society are the allegations made against President Trump by at least 19 women, many of whom came forward after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in October 2016. Trump vociferously denies any wrongdoing. “Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?” a reporter asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, in late October. “Yeah, we’ve been clear on that from the beginning, and the president’s spoken on it,” Sanders replied.

Some of the women’s stories date back to the 1980s when Trump’s personal relationships were fixtures of the New York City tabloids; others begin after he returned to the public eye with his NBC series The Apprentice. Their accounts describe a wide range of alleged behavior, including lewd remarks, overt harassment, groping, and sexual assault. One woman, Summer Zervos, is currently suing the president for defamation after he repeatedly called her and the others liars. What follows are details from each accuser—listed alphabetically—and the president’s corresponding defense.

Slave Trafficking In Libya. Men Selling For $400

Libyan authorities have launched a formal investigation into slave auctions in the country, the government said Friday.

“A high-level committee has been convened encompassing representatives from all the security apparatus to oversee this investigation,” Anes Alazabi, an official with the internationally recognized government of Libya’s Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency, told CNN.

“Priorities of the investigation are not only to convict those responsible for these inhumane acts, but also to identify the location of those who have been sold in order to bring them to safety and return them to their countries of origin.”

Alazabi’s agency will be overseeing the probe. Part of its work will be to assess whether all the locations of these auctions are under the control of the United Nations-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli.

The International Organization for Migration, an intergovernmental organization based in Geneva that focuses on migration management, welcomed the investigation. But its chief of mission for Libya warned in an interview with CNN’s Nima Elbagir “that the smuggling networks are becoming stronger, more organized and better equipped.”

“We definitely welcome the news for any investigation and we hope that this will cover not only this case but definitely all the cases of abuse and violence against migrants in Libya,” Othman Belbeisi said from Tunis.

CNN’s Alex Platt and Raja Razek traveled with Elbagir to Libya in October after obtaining footage of a migrant auction.

At a property outside the capital of Tripoli, CNN witnessed a dozen men being sold like commodities — some auctioned off for as little as $400.

Democrats Introduce Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump aka #45

House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment Wednesday against President Donald Trump, though they acknowledged their efforts have no chance of success while Republicans control both houses of Congress.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, introduced five articles of impeachment that include obstruction of justice for Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, two emoluments clause violations, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press.

“The time has come to make clear to the American people and to this President that his train of injuries to our Constitution must be brought to an end through impeachment,” he said.

Cohen, the ranking member on the House judiciary committee’s Constitution subcommittee, acknowledged the limitations of his proposal.

“I don’t expect the House judiciary committee, which is operated like a branch of the administration, to take up hearings,” he said.

He told members of the press he would likely be facilitating briefings in lieu of hearings.

“There are many reasons why I think the President is an awful President, an awful person, but not all those reasons rise to the level of impeaching a sitting President. We are not seeking his impeachment because of what he did before he was President,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Illinois, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said beside Cohen.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded in a statement, saying time spent calling for Trump’s impeachment “would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses.”

“It’s disappointing that extremists in Congress still refuse to accept the President’s decisive victory in last year’s election,” she said.

Michael Ahrens, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, called the impeachment effort “radical.”

“House Democrats lack a positive message and are completely unwilling to work across the aisle, so instead they’ve decided to support a baseless radical effort that the vast majority of Americans disagree with,” he said.

This isn’t the first time Democrats have argued to impeach Trump. Earlier this month, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Washington, said the President has committed “significant constitutional impeachable violations,” adding that Democrats needed to act.

O.J. Simpson Removed and Banned From a Las Vegas Casino. But Simpson’s Lawyer Malcolm LaVergne Says Reports Aren’t True 

O.J. Simpson was reportedly removed from a Las Vegas casino early Thursday morning for unruly behavior.
Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm LaVergne, said the Simpson was banned from The Cosmopolitan hotel, according to The Associated Press. LaVergne said no reason was given for the ban. 
But LaVergne said that the story about Simpson being drunk at The Cosmopolitan is completely untrue. 


LaVergne says that Simpson is a social drinker, meaning he usually orders one drink and sips on it while socializing, and that he was at the Cosmopolitan to eat chicken wings.

LaVergne also said that the hotel-casino had apparently decided before Simpson’s visit to trespass him from the property. LaVergne says that after Simpson was notified, he left the hotel-casino quietly.

In addition, Simpson is challenging anyone with proof that he was drunk and belligerent to come forward. He is also taking steps to make sure that his probation officer is clear about what happened. 

At least 27 dead, 27 injured in Texas church shooting, authorities say. Texas native Devin Kelley is identified as shooter 

The suspected gunman in a Texas church mass shooting on Sunday has been identified as a Texas native in his mid-20s, officials said.

The alleged gunman was ID’d as Devin Kelley from New Braunfels, federal and state law enforcement sources confirmed.
At least 26 people were killed and 20 injured after the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs.
The shooter is dead, according to law enforcement officials.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told a local newspaper that a man walked into a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, and opened fire, leaving multiple people dead.

-Air Force officials confirmed to ABC News he served in the U.S. Air Force from 2010 until he was discharged.
-In 2012, Kelley was court martialed for two counts of assault on his spouse and assault on their child.
-He received a bad conduct discharge, confinement for a year and a reduction to the grade of E-1.
-A source told ABC News Kelley spent a year in the brig at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico and got out in 2013 for the 2012 offenses.
-He was dressed in all black with tactical-type gear and was wearing a ballistic vest.
-He was at a Valero gas station before he drove across the street to the church, exited his vehicle and opened fire, according to officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety.
-He moved to the right side of the church and continued to fire, before he entered the church and shot people inside.
-As he exited the church, a local resident grabbed his rifle and “engaged” the suspect. The suspect dropped what was described as a Ruger AR assault-type rifle and fled from the church.
-The local citizen pursued the suspect and when law enforcement responded, the suspect crashed and was found deceased in his vehicle.
-It was not immediately clear whether he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound or if he was shot by the local resident.
-Multiple weapons were found in the vehicle, and the vehicle was being processed by special operations group bomb techs.
-Authorities are searching his social media accounts and said that on Facebook in recent days, he showed off what appeared to be an AR-15-style gun.
-An ATF source said that agents are searching the alleged shooter’s home for explosives.

Colin Kaepernick signs $1mill book deal. 

Colin Kaepernick signs $1M book deal.

Colin Kaepernick, the NFL player at the forefront of protests that have swept the league and raised the ire of President Trump, has signed a book deal, Page Six reported.
The deal, reportedly worth just over $1 million, is with One World, an imprint of Random House. Further details on the book were not immediately available.

Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance in 2013 and has been a free agent since March, filed a grievance earlier this month against NFL owners, accusing them of colluding to keep him out of the league in retaliation for his outspoken views on social issues.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem before games during the 2016 season. Kaepernick said he was protesting police brutality and racial injustice, and pledged to donate $1 million to charitable causes.

Players across the league began taking part in demonstrations during the national anthem, with some taking a knee, some raising a fist and others linking arms.

The issue of players protesting was thrust back into the spotlight when Trump in September suggested owners should fire players for taking a knee. He has since repeatedly called the demonstrations disrespectful, and last Sunday lamented the league has shown “no leadership” in allowing players to continue protesting.

Amazon delivers 65 pounds of Marijuana to a Florida couple 

Police are investigating how 65 pounds of marijuana ended up being shipped to a Florida couple that ordered four storage units from Amazon. 
The couple suspected that something was wrong when they found out that their package—shipped via UPS and meant to contain four empty bins—weighed 93.5 pounds. 


“They were extremely heavy,” the Orlando woman told local news network WFTV, asking not to be named for safety reasons, “more heavy than you would think from ordering four empty bins.”

Amazon has often been criticized for adding excessing packaging to its deliveries, but when the couple smelled the package they realised the weight had nothing to do with the wrapping.
They called the police after discovering the tightly wrapped, compacted bales of marijuana which were then seized. But their ordeal isn’t over yet: they now fear repercussions from whoever shipped the drugs, which have a street value of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If prices on websites like Honest Marijuana are anything to go by, an ounce of weed in Florida can cost around $200, giving the 65 pounds of weed a street value of around $200,000.
“We were still pretty fearful our home would be broken into, and we didn’t sleep there for a few days,” the Amazon customers said.

Nelly arrested early Saturday morning and charged with second-degree rape 

Nelly was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with second-degree rape following an incident that occurred on the rapper’s tour bus following a Friday night concert in Auburn, Washington.


Nelly, born Cornell Haynes Jr., was booked into Des Moines, Washington’s SCORE Jail just before 6:40 a.m. PST Saturday, three hours after the Auburn Police Department responded to a call from a woman who said that the rapper raped her on the tour bus.

Nelly is currently on the Smooth Stadium Tour with Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys; the trek came to Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre on Friday night.
According to Q13 Fox, following the concert, Nelly came to nearby Seattle and picked up a woman who he then brought back to his tour bus in Auburn, which was parked behind a local Wal-Mart.
At 3:48 a.m., the woman called police and said Nelly sexually assaulted her on the bus. Auburn Police, citing probable cause for arrest, took the rapper into custody and charged him with second-degree rape. After less than 90 minutes at SCORE, Nelly was released from custody at 8:02 a.m.
“A female called 911 to report that she was sexually assaulted by a male, who is known as the rapper ‘Nelly.’ The alleged assault was reported to occur on the tour bus that was parked at the listed location,” Auburn Police said in a statement. “Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just hours before.” The department added, “Auburn Police are continuing to investigate this incident. The above details are all we have to release at this time.”
The rapper’s representatives did not respond to Rolling Stone’s request for comment, but a lawyer for Nelly told TMZ, “Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to pursue all all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
The Smooth Stadium Tour comes to Ridgefield, Washington Saturday night.


BHRE Update:

Nelly has released a statement following his arrest Saturday morning on second-degree rape. “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” the rapper tweeted. “I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation. I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation. I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim.”

Las Vegas Shooter Has Been Identified As, Stephen Paddock age 64 from Mesquite, NV 

MESQUITE, Nev. — Police have identified the man accused of killing at least 50 people in a Las Vegas shooting rampage as Stephen Paddock, 64, a resident of Mesquite, Nev.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said officers determined the gunshots were coming from a room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay complex on the Las Vegas Strip. Officers stormed the room and killed the suspect, Lombardo said.
“Right now, we believe it’s a sole actor, a lone-wolf-type actor,” Lombardo said. He said a motive for the shooting had not yet been determined.


A federal law enforcement official said a cache of weapons was found inside the hotel room where Paddock died, and investigators believe the suspect used the vantage point to fire on the crowd below gathered for an outdoor country music concert.
Police blocked off the road to the suspect’s home in Mesquite, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Records show that Paddock resided at 1372 Babbling Brook Court in a home he purchased in 2015.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department obtained a search warrant and officers were planning to search Paddock’s home, said Quinn Barrett, public information officer for the Mesquite Police Department. He said the department had secured the home and the perimeter around it but is playing only a supportive role in the investigation.
