Some Guidance On Elementary News Methods

After the verdicts were announced, Manafort’s lawyer told the press that his client was “disappointed”. That may be a bit of an understatement. Even with convictions on only eight of the 18 criminal counts against him, Mr Trump’s former campaign chair could be looking at up to 80 years in prison. And Manafort faces a second trial in Washington DC next month for money laundering, acting as an unregistered foreign agent, conspiracy to defraud the US, making false statements and witness tampering. It’s the bulk of the legal case against the long-time Washington lobbyist. Image caption Manafort was found guilty on eight charges of tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to disclose foreign banks accounts Manafort’s lawyers had insisted on the two separate trials, perhaps because they thought they he had a better chance of acquittal from an Alexandria jury or friendlier federal judges in the Northern Virginia district. If so, that plan backfired. Manafort may be hoping for a presidential pardon, given that Mr Trump has said his prosecution was politically motivated and that he was a “good man”. The president can only pardon for federal crimes, however, and Manafort’s conviction on tax fraud opens him up to future state-level charges, which Mr Trump has no power to forgive. Now 69-year-old Manafort is facing a lengthy prison sentence – and more legal battles to come.

What’s Necessary For Plans

West Hollywood may urge removal of Trump's star from Walk of Fame

West Hollywood may urge removal of Trump’s star from Walk of Fame The West Hollywood City Council will vote Monday night on a proposal to urge that President Trump’s star be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The resolution, put forth by West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tem John D’Amico and Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, urges the city of Los Angeles — where the star is located — and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the marker “due to [Trump’s] disturbing treatment of women and other actions.” Trump’s star on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue has taken a beating since the 2016 presidential campaign. In late July, the marker was annihilated by a pickax-wielding Austin Mikel Clay, 24, who promptly turned himself in to police. And in October 2016, a man was caught on video attacking the star with a sledgehammer. The start has been spray-painted, stomped on and spat upon. The West Hollywood resolution doesn’t mention the vandalism in its case for removing the star. But a staff report makes several other arguments for doing so, among them Trump’s treatment of women, the separation of children from their parents at the U.S. border and “denial of findings from the United States intelligence community regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.” The staff report also urges the city of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to revisit qualifications for being included in the Walk of Fame, which features more than 2,500 terrazzo-and-brass stars dedicated to the famous. Trump received his star in 2007 for his work as producer of the Miss Universe pageant. Similar calls to remove Trump’s star were made when the president characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals during his presidential campaign. When activists called for the removal of Bill Cosby’s star from the Walk of Fame in 2015 amid numerous allegations of sexual assault, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce refused.

Chief Moore didn’t do anything wrong or break any rules. He just played the DROP game extremely well. But now he stands under a cloud at the very start of his administration. I’ve got the perfect solution for him. I had breakfast with new LAUSD Supt. Austin Beutner Thursday, and he talked about his desire to keep schools open after the last bell rings, so that in the evening and on weekends they become community centers, with job training and mentoring along with access to the libraries and gyms. This would be a great crime deterrent, but the schools would need to be staffed after hours, and that costs money. So how about a nonprofit to do just that, with a sizable start-up donation from Chief Moore, who could put part of his $1.2 million to good use? I sent my pitch to a Moore aide, and I’ll let you know if I get a response. I have nothing against pensions, by the way. After 43 years on the job, I’m almost 65 and will soon have two pensions from my earlier days in the news biz.
