Smollett case special prosecutor donated $1,000 to Kim Foxx’s campaign, co-hosted fundraiser

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6076295931001_6076273104001-vs Smollett case special prosecutor donated $1,000 to Kim Foxx’s campaign, co-hosted fundraiser fox-news/person/jussie-smollett fox news fnc/us fnc article 4e199e0e-63fe-5e0d-9769-0678ba3be4c1

The special prosecutor appointed to look into why the state’s attorney’s office in Chicago abruptly dropped the case against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett allegedly staging an attack on himself acknowledged Monday that he donated to the top prosecutor’s campaign and that his law firm co-hosted a 2016 fundraiser for her.

In a document filed in Cook County Circuit Court, Dan K. Webb says he doesn’t recall writing a $1,000 check to State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s campaign. The Chicago Tribune reports he also says he doesn’t remember attending the fundraiser thrown by his high-powered firm, Winston & Strawn.

Included with Webb’s filing was a copy of the flyer touting the fundraiser. The invitation notes lawyers in the firm including Webb, a Republican, supported Foxx, a Democrat, in her campaign for state’s attorney.

“I should point out that it is common for Winston partners to host fundraisers for political candidates at our firm,” Webb wrote to Judge Michael Toomin, who appointed the former U.S. attorney as special prosecutor in August. “It is also common that my Winston partners request that I contribute to these fundraisers.”

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Webb was one of three attorneys listed as a “host” of the fundraiser.

Webb said the matter was brought to his attention last week by Michael Bromwich, an attorney for Foxx. He said Bromwhich “made it clear” Foxx won’t claim any conflict of interest or make “any other objection related to this contribution.”

A hearing is scheduled for Friday, during which Webb is expected to discuss the political donation with Toomin.

The Chicago Police Department maintains that there is overwhelming evidence Smollett staged the attack and paid his two “attackers” to carry it out.

The Cook County state’s attorney’s office charged Smollett in February with 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly orchestrating the incident. However, it dropped all of the charges a month later with little explanation, angering city officials and the police.

Then-Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel stood shoulder-to-shoulder with his city’s police force after the announcement and denounced prosecutors for dropping charges and slammed the episode as a “whitewash of justice.”

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Emanuel said they were not only furious with the outcome of Tuesday’s surprise hearing but also blindsided by the decision itself, with the officials only learning Smollett wouldn’t face charges for allegedly faking a hate crime at the same time the public found out.

Smollett’s attorneys say their client continues to vehemently deny making any false statements in the case and said he remains the victim of a crime.

Ingraham: Democrats ‘done with democracy’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6090821822001_6090824612001-vs Ingraham: Democrats 'done with democracy' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 8f5fc109-e549-5762-b483-60f54e82e2ec

Laura Ingraham declared that Democrats are done with democracy Monday, saying that the party has decided they can’t trust democracy to deliver them the presidency in 2020.

“I’ve come to the sad conclusion that Democrats, they’re basically done with democracy at least when it delivers results they don’t like,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

GIULIANI SUBPEONED BY HOUSE DEMS FOR UKRAINE DOCS IN IMPEACHMENT PROBE

Ingraham said she believes that Democrats are not confident they can win in 2020 and are undermining the system, citing former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton calling President Trump’s presidency “illegitimate” this Sunday on CBS News.

“Well, in 2016 remember nearly 63 million Americans turned out for Trump and he beat Hillary by 74 electoral votes. The left cannot take that risk again,” Ingraham said. “They’re not so confident.”

A new Quinnipiac University poll indicates American voters are evenly split —  47 percent to 47 percent — on whether President Trump should be impeached and removed from office over the Ukraine controversy.

Ingraham believes Democrats want to use impeachment to “smear” Trump.

“Even if they can’t actually remove him from office with a Senate conviction they want an impeachment vote by year’s end to smear him,” Ingraham said.

The host argued that Democrats are angry with not only Trump but America itself.

“Now they are not just angry, the Democrats, with Trump or his policies. Many of them are angry with America,” Ingraham said. “They don’t care if impeachment is bad for the country if it’s going to hurt our economy or even the president’s ability to conduct foreign policy.”

Bill Maher: Liberals protect people, the PC Twitter mob only ‘protect feelings’

Bill Maher railed against the so-called Twitter mob in an interview published Monday, saying that millennial cancel culture silences those who don’t speak to “one true opinion” and the politically correct only “protect feelings.”

MAHER BLASTS HUNTER BIDEN’S UKRAINE TIES: IF DON JR. DID IT, RACHEL MADDOW WOULD BE ALL OVER IT

In an interview with The New York Times Magazine, Maher explained that, “We live in an age where people want to cancel other people and disappear them” instead of listening to someone who holds another point of view. He blamed the Baby Boomers for raising the next generation of millennials who with the advent of Twitter rally against “anything that upsets their tender sensibilities.”

BILL MAHER CALLS OUT MADDOW OVER UKRAINE COVERAGE

“I was woke before some of these people were born. I grew up in a household with two liberal parents who were ahead of their time. My father and mother told me about civil rights. I knew what the right thing was. The difference is that liberals protect people, and P.C. people protect feelings. They don’t do anything,” he said in an interview titled “Bill Maher on the perils of political correctness.”

Maher admitted he’s strummed up his own controversies both early on in his career in his stand-up comic days and more recently. He pointed out with the new age of social media anyone can post a video online and unleash the millennial mob against them.

“The politically correct people are not concerned about social justice. They care about putting scalps on the wall,” Maher continued. “I don’t see a lot of desire for people to talk to each other, to accept that, ‘O.K., this person doesn’t agree with me on a lot of stuff, but I don’t have to think he’s a monster.’ We want to beat our chests and vanquish the other side. Compromise seems like a dead concept.”

He also claimed that society has evolved when it comes to talking about a variety of issues, including terrorism, Islamophobia, the LGBTQ community, women and race. But now “we’re not getting to the truth, because we’re too sensitive.”

“Are we at this place where we can’t admit that we’ve ever had bad thoughts and gotten over them and become a better person? You can’t judge today by yesterday. We evolve.”

Hillary Clinton blasts Pompeo, Giuliani over Ukraine fallout on ‘The Late Show’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6090772737001_6090777227001-vs Hillary Clinton blasts Pompeo, Giuliani over Ukraine fallout on 'The Late Show' Gerren Keith Gaynor fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 03308dee-682b-5f92-9739-d80bf0ca4f1e

Hillary Clinton blasted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Monday night during an appearance on “The Late Show” over their reported involvement in Trump’s controversial call with the leader of Ukraine.

While promoting her new book alongside her daughter Chelsea Clinton, the former secretary of state was asked what she thought about the recent Wall Street Journal report that claimed Pompeo was listening in on the call that prompted a whistleblower complaint and a subsequent formal impeachment inquiry.

“How many times when you were secretary of state did you have to say to Obama, ‘You can’t extort foreign countries to get dirt on your political enemies?’” host Stephen Colbert asked Clinton, who responded with a loud chuckle.

“Yeah, that never happened,” she said. “The secretary of state’s job is to make sure he knows, number one, what the president is going to say on those calls.”

GIULIANI SAYS POMPEO WAS AWARE OF HIS UKRAINE OUTREACH

“Because you’ve got a president who doesn’t listen to anybody and doesn’t follow instructions whatsoever, I’m not sure they haven’t just given up on trying to give him any sort of preparation,” she added.

“I think if the secretary of state was on the call as is now being reported, he should have been one of the very first people to say, ‘Wait a minute, we’ve got to clean this up. You can’t let that stand.’ But we don’t know what he did.”

Clinton also slammed “Republican defenders” of Trump who argue the accusations made against him are “hearsay.”

GIULIANI WAS NOT WORKING ALONE IN BIDEN UKRAINE PROBE

“It was an admission from the White House! I mean, the transcript of the phone call was put out by the White House. And the whistleblower has a depth of understanding that needs to be taken seriously about what happened,” she said.

Colbert also asked the former Democratic presidential nominee on her thoughts about Trump “sending Rudy Giuliani out to handle foreign policy,” referring to reports that Giuliani sought damaging information on Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden from Ukraine officials.

Clinton said “That would be a big problem” if it had happened under President Obama.

“Presidents often use—as do secretaries of state—they might use an envoy or a special adviser to deliver a message,” she said. “But again, it is supposed to be carefully thought through. And from what we’ve seen on television, carefully thinking through is not one of Rudy’s strong points.”

Tourist falls near Old Faithful Geyser, suffers severe thermal burns

A tourist visiting Yellowstone National Park on Sunday suffered severe thermal burns after he tripped into a hot spring near Old Faithful Geyser, according to local reports.

Cade Edmond Siemers, 48,  a U.S. citizen who lives in India, told rangers he was walking without a flashlight at the time of the fall, the Jackson Hole News & Guide reported. He managed to get back to his hotel room and was eventually flown to the burn center at an Idaho hospital. He was listed in critical condition.

Park rangers said they detected “evidence” of alcohol use back in the hotel room.

Yellowstone was established as the world’s first national park back in 1872, according to NPS.gov.

The park has about 500 geysers. Park rangers are able to predict the eruption of six of them, including Old Faithful that has only lengthened the time between eruptions by about 30 minutes in the last 30 years. Four million people travel there each year.

The hospital told the Idaho Statesman that Siemers was in intensive care.

In 2016, Colin Nathaniel Scott, 23, of Portland, Ore., left the boardwalk section near the geyser and fell into a high-temperature, acidic spring. Recovery efforts were called off after rangers determined there were no remains left in the hot spring.

The death occurred in one of the hottest and most volatile areas of Yellowstone, where boiling water flows just beneath a thin rock crust.

Water temperatures there can reach 199 degrees, the boiling point for water at the park’s high elevation.

At least 22 people are known to have died from hot spring-related injuries in and around Yellowstone since 1890, park officials said.

Hillary Clinton, Democrats ‘infuriating’ in their efforts to ‘cast doubt on legitimacy of President Trump,’ Lisa Boothe says

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Boothe Hillary Clinton, Democrats 'infuriating' in their efforts to 'cast doubt on legitimacy of President Trump,' Lisa Boothe says fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc dc34313a-a82a-5e05-8210-48437369b582 Charles Creitz article

It is Democrats, not President Trump, who are threatening American institutions and the electoral process, according to Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.

Boothe rejected new remarks about the current president from Hillary Clinton, in an interview Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Speaking with CBS News, Clinton referred to Trump as a “corrupt human tornado” and said the New York Republican inherently knows he is an “illegitimate” president.

“He knows that there were a bunch of different reasons that the election turned out the way it did,” Clinton said.

RNC CHAIRWOMAN RONNA MCDANIEL HAS TOUGH 2020 MESSAGE FOR DEMS

Boothe ripped Clinton’s remarks both there and in a 2016 tweet, in which the former secretary of state wrote, “Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that he’s threatening our democracy.”

“What I find infuriating about what she said there — Democrats are the ones who are threatening our democracy by casting doubt on the legitimacy of President Trump,” she said.

“They are the ones who are undermining our faith in institutions, particularly the electoral process.”

More from Media

Host Tucker Carlson agreed, remarking that Clinton appears to be “trapped in emotional amber” from Election Day 2016.

“Every day is November 8,” he said.

In addition, Boothe said Democrats are eroding democratic norms through lawmakers who boycotted Trump’s 2017 inauguration and, “lied about the Russian collusion narrative.”

Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016, added that she supports the House of Representatives’ newly launched impeachment inquiry.

“My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton told CBS News. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.”

She was referring to the dust-up over a July call between Trump and his counterpart in Ukraine, in which he asked for an inquiry into onetime Vice President Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, and their dealings there.

San Francisco removes boulders meant to deter homeless campers because they were ‘not big enough’

Westlake Legal Group boulders-clinton-park San Francisco removes boulders meant to deter homeless campers because they were 'not big enough' fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/san-francisco fox-news/topic/homeless-crisis fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 1e406886-bdb0-5de3-bf0a-83692abc6ac0

The city of San Francisco on Monday removed about two dozen small boulders from a residential side street after a group of neighbors had them installed last week in an effort to deter homeless people from camping out on along the sidewalk amid the city’s ongoing crisis.

SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS CRISIS PROMPTS NEIGHBORHOOD TO PUT BOULDERS ON SIDEWALK TO DETER CAMPERS

San Francisco’s Public Works removed the rocks set up along Clinton Park in the city’s Mission Dolores neighborhood. Residents last week said they pooled their funds to keep drug users from having a space to shoot up as they camp out overnight.

The department’s director, Mohammed Nuru, told the San Francisco Examiner that the boulders installed by the residents “were not big enough” and began posing a safety concern as they were being pushed into the street. He said the city would work with residents to come up with a more permanent solution that “could involve larger boulders or a landscape plan.”

“They would have saved a lot of money and a lot of trouble if they just said something to us,” Daniel Bartosiewicz, a homeless man who said he’s camped in Clinton Park for the past two months, told the Bay Area’s KNTV. “Use your compassion and love and understanding. We’re humans.”

The San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness reacted to the city’s decision to remove the Clinton Park boulders, writing: “They should remove all the anti-homeless design and hostile architecture from the rest of the city while they’re at it — most of which are *City-sanctioned.*”

The city and state has implemented similar landscaping choices in an effort to deter homeless encampments in other neighborhoods. The California Department of Transportation has put rocks in an open space off Bayshore Boulevard to deter encampments, while the Eureka Valley-Harvey Milk Branch of the San Francisco Public Library – in the same neighborhood – has made design choices that are perceived as anti-homeless, according to KTVU.

San Francisco has long struggled with problems of human waste and needles on the streets of the Tenderloin district, where many addicts and homeless people are typically found. The city has set up public toilets and last year announced the creation of a special six-person “poop patrol” team to clean up the human waste.

Graham calls out NY Times report saying Trump ‘pressed’ Aussie PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized a report by the New York Times that claimed President Trump “pressed” the prime minister of Australia for information to discredit the probe conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, calling it an “effort” to shut down Attorney General William Barr‘s investigation.

“This New York Times article about Barr talking to Australia is the beginning of an effort to shut down Barr’s investigation to find out how this whole thing started,” Graham said on “Hannity” Monday.

TRUMP DEMANDS SCHIFF RESIGN OVER ‘PARODY’ READING OF UKRAINE CALL

A Justice Department official told Fox News on Monday that Barr asked Trump to make introductions to foreign countries that might have had information pertinent to U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into possible misconduct by the intelligence community at the outset of the Russia investigation.

But, a person familiar with the situation told Fox News it would be wrong to say Trump “pressed” the Australian prime minister for information that could have discredited Mueller’s now-completed probe, as the New York Times reported earlier Monday.

Graham said that Barr should be talking with Australia as well as the U.K. and Italy in order to do his job properly.  He also said he would write a letter to those three countries asking them to cooperate with Barr and cited a letter his colleagues sent to Ukraine last year asking them to cooperate with Mueller or the U.S. would stop sending aid.

“So here’s what I want American people to know: it’s OK to cooperate with Mueller to get Trump but it’s not OK to cooperate with Barr to find out if Trump was the victim of an out-of-control intelligence operation,” Graham said. “We’re not going to have a country like that.”

The senator told host Sean Hannity it “bothered him” that “the left” would say it was wrong for Barr to talk with other countries.

“This New York Times article is an effort to stop Barr from looking at how this whole thing began in 2016 regarding the Trump campaign,” Graham said. “What are they afraid of.”

Rudy Giuliani blasts Biden camp for trying to ‘silence’ him, claims Democrats are ‘party of corruption’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Biden camp for what he characterized as trying to “silence” him by encouraging media outlets not to book him on-air.

Giuliani also claimed Monday on “Hannity” the Democrats are going to turn into the “party of corruption.”

“It is outrageous,” he said, explaining allegations of unsubstantiated wrongdoing involving Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden. “The only really sad part of this is how much in-the-tank and how corrupt the media have become.”

“He is a laughing stock,” Giuliani said of Biden.

He claimed Biden was dispatched to Ukraine while in the Obama administration with the goal of rooting out corruption, but instead watched as Hunter Biden did work on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.

Giuliani also said that, while accusations against Hunter Biden go without much attention in the media, a lot of attention has been paid to the contents of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that was exposed by a whistleblower.

“They make up charges against President Trump that are not true,” he said.

Regarding the Biden campaign expressing to major media outlets their concern over having Giuliani on air, the former mayor said the reasoning is obvious.

“Why do you think they’re silencing me?” he asked.

“Because I’m not making any valid points? They’re silencing me because I showed up with an affidavit yesterday — an accuser who’s willing to stand up and point the finger at Joe Biden and say ‘you’re a crook’.”

The Biden campaign wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News, and CNN to voice “grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” according to The Daily Beast, which first reported the existence of the letter.

The memo, drafted by Biden aides Kate Bedingfield and Anita Dunn, continued: “While you often fact check his statements in real-time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”

Should a network choose to book Giuliani, the Biden campaign called for “an equivalent amount of time” to be provided “to a surrogate for the Biden campaign.” The letter noted Giuliani was not a public official, but Trump’s lawyer and personal advisor.

Speaking separately to Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Giuliani brought up the affidavits and called the situation Clintonesque.

“The pattern is a pattern of pay for play. It includes something very similar to what happened to the Clinton Foundation,” Giuliani said, “which goes to the very core of, what did Obama know and when did he know it?”

Giuliani referred to a December 2015 New York Times article about Hunter Biden, Burisma and a Ukrainian oligarch, and how the younger Biden’s involvement with the Ukrainian company could undermine then-Vice President Biden’s anti-corruption message.

“The question is,” Giuliani asked, “when Biden and Obama saw that article, about how the son was pulling down money from the most crooked oligarch in Russia, did Obama call Biden in and say ‘Joe, how could you be doing this?'”

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted the Biden camp for what he characterized as trying to “silence” him by encouraging media outlets not to book him on-air.

Giuliani also claimed Monday on “Hannity” the Democrats are going to turn into the “party of corruption.”

“It is outrageous,” he said, explaining allegations of unsubstantiated wrongdoing involving Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden. “The only really sad part of this is how much in-the-tank and how corrupt the media have become.”

“He is a laughing stock,” Giuliani said of Biden.

He claimed Biden was dispatched to Ukraine while in the Obama administration with the goal of rooting out corruption, but instead watched as Hunter Biden did work on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.

Giuliani also said that, while accusations against Hunter Biden go without much attention in the media, a lot of attention has been paid to the contents of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that was exposed by a whistleblower.

“They make up charges against President Trump that are not true,” he said.
