Trump blasts Dem impeachment push as a ‘coup,’ claims it is ‘intended to take away the power of the people’

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Ohio Trump blasts Dem impeachment push as a 'coup,' claims it is 'intended to take away the power of the people' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 88e4eb1b-f6ce-5a64-8762-8f2c5de29d63

President Trump lashed out at House Democrats Tuesday, claiming the ongoing impeachment inquiry against him is part of a “coup.”

“As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!” Trump tweeted.

Earlier Tuesday, the president went after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who Trump suggested should be “brought up on charges” for his “parody” interpretation of Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president at last week’s hearing.

“Why isn’t Congressman Adam Schiff being brought up on charges for fraudulently making up a statement and reading it to Congress as if this statement, which was very dishonest and bad for me, was directly made by the President of the United States?” Trump asked on Twitter. “This should never be allowed!”

Trump and certain House Democrats have been in a war of words on Twitter over impeachment and the whistleblower investigation. Most notably, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., insisted earlier on Tuesday that Trump should be placed in “solitary confinement.”

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters tweeted. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.”

Virginia police officer suspended after turning in suspected undocumented immigrant over to ICE

Westlake Legal Group ice1 Virginia police officer suspended after turning in suspected undocumented immigrant over to ICE Louis Casiano fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 62573ee1-db47-5b1e-b3df-d25c3b0f5742

A Virginia police officer was suspended after allegedly turning over a suspected undocumented immigrant to federal authorities following a traffic accident last month.

The Fairfax County Police Department didn’t identify the officer in a statement released Tuesday but said the incident occurred on Sept. 21 when an officer was dispatched to a car accident.

The officer discovered one of the drivers didn’t have a Virginia driver’s license and ran a check with the state Department of Motor Vehicles, police said. The check revealed the driver had a violation for failing to appear for a deportation hearing.

The officer verified the warrant and alerted officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

An ICE agent was close by and arrived at the scene. The officer cited the driver for not have a driver’s license and turned them over to the federal agent.

The Fairfax County Police Department enacted a policy in 2007 that prohibits officers from confirming a person’s immigration status and detaining them solely based on civil violations of immigration law.

“This is an unfortunate issue where the officer was confused,” Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. said. “We have trained on this issue a lot. This is the first time we’ve had a lapse in judgment, and the officer is being punished.”

The driver was released from federal custody after three hours and issued an ankle monitor. Roessler apologized for the incident and ordered an internal investigation upon learning of it.

“Our county is one of the most diverse counties in the nation and no one should have the perception that FCPD is acting as a civil immigration agent for ICE,” he said.

The officer involved has been on the job for a few years, Roessler told The Washington Post. He added that the officer did not willfully violate the department’s policy with respect to cooperating with immigration officials.

He said the officer will undergo remedial training.

Rep. Joaquin Castro: Trump is ‘on the verge’ of ‘bringing harm’ to Ukraine call whistleblower

Westlake Legal Group Joaquin-Castro-GettyImages-1132142232 Rep.

Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, slammed President Trump on Tuesday over his repeated calls to identify the whistleblower who filed the report about his phone call with the Ukrainian leader, suggesting the hostile rhetoric towards the anonymous intelligence community worker may be “bringing harm” towards the individual.

“The president at this point has been very abusive of the Whistleblower Protection Act and really is basically on the verge of not only revealing the identity or getting somebody else to reveal the identity of the whistleblower, but also bringing harm to that person,” Castro said on CNN.

MAXINE WATERS SAYS TRUMP DESERVES WORSE THAN IMPEACHMENT: NEEDS ‘SOLITARY CONFINEMENT’

“It’s getting quite scary, the president’s behavior and his words and what that could conjure up.”

Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and brother of 2020 presidential candidate, Julián Castro, speculated whether someone from within the White House who knows the identity of the whistleblower would “leak” it, but expressed confidence in the protection Congress has given to the informant.

“If you look at the whistleblower’s complaint and the transcript of that phone call, it’s starting to become clear that there was an attempted coverup by the White House of a president abusing his power, betraying his oath of office,” Castro continued.

“And this investigation — every day it seems like there is a new, basically, a path to follow, a new trail to follow and we’re going to do that.”

DOJ seeks reinstatement of Army reservist fired from civilian job over military obligations

Westlake Legal Group iStock-doj DOJ seeks reinstatement of Army reservist fired from civilian job over military obligations Melissa Leon fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/mississippi fox-news/us/military/army fox-news/us/military fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox news fnc/us fnc article 2a748822-f77f-5e99-959d-2585d061ab35

An Army reservist in Mississippi, fired from a civilian job because of his military service obligations, should be reinstated, the Justice Department said in a complaint filed Monday in federal court.

Staff Sgt. 1st Class Jason Sims Sr. served with the Coahoma County Sheriff’s Office for four years, between 2014 and 2018, before he was fired because he also taught leadership courses at Fort Knox, Ky., during that time, the Justice Department alleged on Tuesday.

Sims’ firing is a violation of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) of 1994, which protects service members’ civilian jobs when they are called to fulfill military obligations, the department said. USERRA also protects troops from discrimination due to their status with the military.

The DOJ says Sims should be reinstated and paid back wages and benefits.

“Our nation has made a commitment to protect the civilian jobs of its service members while they serve our country,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband said. “Federal law frees members of the armed forces from the stress associated with the fear they will be fired because they were called to military service.”

The Army Reserve allows soldiers to serve in the military part time while also holding full-time civilian jobs.

ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY SUICIDES SPIKE TO RECORD HIGH, PENTAGON REPORT SAYS

“The legal rights of the members of our armed forces, who routinely make personal sacrifices to protect our nation, must be respected,” U.S. Attorney William Lamar said. “The Department of Justice is committed to protecting those rights, so that these brave men and women can return from their service to their civilian jobs with the full benefits to which they are entitled.”

The Department of Labor referred Sims’ request to the Justice Department following its’ own Veterans’ Employment and Training Service investigation.

Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles, says he’s got breast cancer

Mathew Knowles, the father of Beyonce and Solange Knowles, says he’s got breast cancer.

In an interview with “Good Morning America” that’s set to air on Wednesday, the 67-year-old sat down with Michael Strahan to discuss his diagnosis, his treatment and the implications for his family.

It’s unclear from the preview when Knowles first received his diagnosis.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer in men is rare. Only 1 in 1,000 men will ever be diagnosed and less than percent of all breast cancer cases develop in males though it is more common in older men.

Former veterans charity leader sentenced to year in prison for stealing $900G

The former executive director of a veterans charity organization, convicted last year of stealing $900,000 from the nonprofit and using it for personal expenses, has been sentenced to a year in prison, according to a report.

Patricia Driscoll, a former girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, was found guilty in November 2018 of wire fraud, tax evasion and first-degree fraud, according to the Justice Department. She had been accused of spending the money on jewelry, shopping trips and business ventures.

Court records showed that sentencing for Driscoll, a Maryland resident, has been stayed pending an appeal, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday.

“The court issued a thoughtful and considered sentence based on the totality of the circumstances in this case and stayed it pending appeal. With the stay, we can continue to pursue justice,” one of her attorneys, Brian Stolarz, told the newspaper.

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon also ordered Driscoll to pay $154,289 in restitution and serve 36 months’ supervised release, according to the publication.

Driscoll was the former executive director of the Armed Forces Foundation, founded in Washington, D.C., in 2001 to help promote veterans’ quality of life, The Union-Tribune has reported.

The foundation was co-founded by former Rep. Duncan L. Hunter, whose son, Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, R-Calif., now faces charges that he illegally used campaign funds for personal expenses.

Driscoll resigned from the organization after leading it for 12 years when allegations surfaced in 2018 that she’d misused funds. The nonprofit dissolved its operations in September 2018 when Driscoll was found guilty.

The nonprofit’s 2015 tax filing reportedly indicated Driscoll misspent $900,000 on personal expenses going as far back as 2006.

Liberal ‘The View’ host Joy Behar dismisses controversy surrounding Biden and Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group joy20behar20420ABC Liberal 'The View' host Joy Behar dismisses controversy surrounding Biden and Ukraine Sam Dorman fox-news/person/joy-behar fox-news/entertainment/the-view fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 6309de7a-511a-5dee-b29b-290a8d66c130

“The View” co-host Joy Behar dismissed concerns over former Vice President Joe Biden’s role in pressuring Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor who previously investigated his son, Hunter.

“There’s nothing to it,” she said on Tuesday. Her comments came after co-host Whoopi Goldberg appeared to suggest the Trump administration was disingenuous in their complaints about Biden’s actions.

“If this were really important to you-know-who in the White House… we’d have heard about this before the way we’ve heard about the emails,” Goldberg said.

Her comments came as House Democrats subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani, the president’s attorney, over concerns surrounding the administration’s push for Ukraine to investigate Biden.

GIULIANI RIPS EX-UKRAINIAN PROSECUTOR FOR DOWNPLAYING BIDEN ‘BRIBERY’ CLAIMS

That was the latest action in Democrats’ formal impeachment inquiry, announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sept. 24. Pelosi started the inquiry over a report that Trump’s administration tried suppressing a whistleblower report about him telling the Ukrainian president to pursue an investigation.

Neither the transcript released by the White House nor the whistleblower report showed an explicit quid pro quo for foreign aid. Democrats, however, allege that Trump’s conduct was inappropriate as he was targeting the 2020 frontrunner for the Democratic Party.

Earlier in the program, Behar attacked people like Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who defended the president. “I understand why Lindsey Graham is selling his soul — he wants to be re-elected in South Carolina. He has at least a nefarious, but a motive,” she said.

She added that she didn’t understand the motive for other Trump officials to “lie down with this dog and get up with fleas.”

New Jersey teacher loses job, accused of snorting morphine in front of students

A New Jersey elementary school teacher has lost his job for allegedly snorting morphine in front of his students, according to a Tuesday report.

Michael Palladino, 43, was charged in December with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and official misconduct, according to a complaint from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

Palladino was an elementary school teacher at Eagleswood Elementary in Eagleswood Township, N.J.

Prosecutors allege Palladino used a ballpoint pen to snort morphine on his classroom desk in front of his students and a faculty member. The pen, which was found with drug residue, had been kept in a desk drawer, prosecutors say.

Eagleswood Township Elementary has students from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. Palladino held certificates of eligibility to teach grades K-8 with advanced standing, Patch reported.
