Giuliani associate asks court to allow handing over documents sought in Trump impeachment

Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, has sought a court’s permission to hand over the contents of his phone records and other documents to a U.S. House panel for use in their impeachment inquiry, his lawyer said Monday.

Joseph Bondy, the lawyer representing Parnas, said in a tweet that the Justice Department on Tuesday would produce the documents as well as contents of the phone seized from Parnas when he was arrested in October, Reuters reports.

Subject to court approval, the government “does not object” to Parnas handing over the documents to the House Intelligence Committee, a letter Bondy wrote to U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in New York says.

Parnas, a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen, and Belarus-born Igor Fruman, another Florida businessman, were each charged with illegally funneling money to a pro-Trump election committee and other politicians, the report said. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Giuliani has said Parnas and Fruman aided his investigation of former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, as well as Biden’s son Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

On Dec. 18, Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The House intelligence panel played a leading role in the investigation, which focused on Trump’s effort to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to open investigations into Biden, a 2020 contender to Trump, and a debunked theory on election interference.

In the letter to the judge, Bondy said a review of the material, which the House panel had subpoenaed, was essential for its “ability to corroborate the strength” of Parnas’ potential testimony, Reuters reported.

Bondy said he and Parnas did not know “whether we intend to produce the entirety of the materials, or a subset filtered for either privilege or relevancy,” the report said

Bondy said in early November Parnas was prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators.

The viral video shows a man dressed in red sitting across from the woman who appears to be trying to get her attention. At one point, before the train leaves the station, the man in red lifts up the woman and exits the car.

North Carolina town ends New Year’s Eve possum drop after yearslong battle

Westlake Legal Group possum North Carolina town ends New Year’s Eve possum drop after yearslong battle The Wall Street Journal fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/north-carolina fnc/us fnc article 591a42f4-6d35-56dc-a425-9cdc3ebe4315

An Appalachian community has dropped its last live opossum on New Year’s Eve.

“It’s done,” said Mayor James Reid of Andrews, N.C., population 1,800. “They can stick a fork in it.”

SYDNEY HOLDING FIREWORKS DISPLAY DESPITE RAGING WILDFIRES

Started in the early 1990s as a “redneck response” to the Times Square ball drop in New York City, the Possum Drop has boomed and attracted hundreds of revelers each New Year’s Eve to watch a live opossum lowered in a plexiglass box at the stroke of midnight.

Times are changing.

— Mayor James Reid

But the drop, held about 350 miles west of the state capital, Raleigh, has become a cultural flashpoint in a rapidly urbanizing state. Animal-rights groups and online petitioners said it is cruel to hang a shy, nocturnal animal in a brightly lighted box over a cheering crowd, amid fireworks and muskets.

The celebration has gone through numerous changes over the years. When festival founder Clay Logan retired, it moved to Andrews last year from neighboring Brasstown, where it began in a country store that functioned as a community center. Logan couldn’t be reached for comment.

Mayor Reid said his goal was to keep a tradition alive and attract tourists to help his town’s economy. But he said he is tired of his voice mail filling up with protest calls, so the stars of the show in Tuesday’s New Year’s Eve party will be a pro-wrestling match and a womanless beauty pageant.

“Times are changing,” Reid said. “Our plan is to have an awesome party and not have any live animals involved whatsoever.”

FAA proposes rule change to force identification of Colorado, Nebraska drones

One day after Colorado and western Nebraska counties reported a series of mysterious, nocturnal drone flights, the Federal Aviation Administration is promoting a rule change last week that requires most drones to be identifiable remotely, a report said Monday.

The rule change, announced Thursday, have been in works for more than a year, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said in an email to the Denver Post Monday.

Under the legislation, law enforcement, federal security agencies and the FAA would be allowed to identify drones flying through their jurisdiction, the FAA said.

COLORADO, NEBRASKA SHERIFFS PUZZLED BY NOCTURNAL DRONE FLIGHTS

A squadron of drones have been flying above a total of five Midwestern states every night for more than two weeks leaving both residents and officials wondering who’s flying them and what purpose they are serving, the newspaper reported.

Sheriffs in Lincoln, Washington and Sedgwick counties in Colorado and Nebraska say their offices have been inundated with calls about the devices.

While there has been no claim of responsibility, an abundance of theories have been offered, ranging from the work of a Mexican drug cartel, to aliens from a far-off galaxy to The History Channel searching for long-lost cities or farmers looking to track cows.

PETER NAVARRO: US RESPONDS TO THREAT FROM CHINESE DRONES – WE’RE REBUILDING AMERICAN DRONE INDUSTRY

Law enforcement officials have reached out to several companies and government agencies – all of whom have said the drones don’t belong to them, the Post reported. That list includes the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army Forces Command, Fort Carson, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Paragon Geophysical Services, the U.S. Geological Survey, Amazon and the Colorado Department of Transportation.

A nocturnal squadron of drones have been buzzing the skies of both Colorado and Nebraska, as well as three other Midwestern states, for the past few weeks.  

Meanwhile, the FAA is working with local law enforcement on the case, but also hasn’t identified the drone operator, Gregor said Monday.

Local sheriffs told the newspaper the drones don’t appear to be “malicious” and they’re likely not breaking any laws. Flight plans are not required to be filed with the FAA unless the drone pilots are flying in restricted airspace.

The proposed rule will be open for public comment for 60 days, according to the FAA, which said the proposed change would help drones better “integrate” into the nation’s airspace, the Post reported. Nearly 1.5 million drones and 160,000 remote pilots are registered with the FAA, the agency said in a statement.

Matt Quinn, owner of Great Lakes Drone Co., one of only a handful of companies in the nation with FAA permission to fly multiple small drones at night, said he’s puzzled by the reports out of Colorado.

“It’s the talk of the drone community,” he said.

Ohio doctor charged with fentanyl-overdose murders of 25 patients sues hospital, claiming defamation

A critical-care doctor in Ohio accused of ordering overdoses of the opioid painkiller fentanyl in the deaths of 25 hospital patients has sued his former employer for defamation, according to a report.

Dr. William Husel, who was indicted in June on 25 counts of murder and has pleaded not guilty, argued that he did nothing wrong and did not deviate from hospital policy on end-of-life care.

The doctor, whose license to practice was suspended in January by the State Medical Board of Ohio, filed the lawsuit Thursday in Franklin County against the Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System and its parent organization, Trinity Health Corp.

MISSOURI MOM’S BEFORE, AFTER PHOTOS OF ADDICTED SON GO VIRAL: ‘THE FACE OF HEROIN AND METH’

Mount Carmel Health System said in an email statement to Fox News Monday afternoon: “Allegations such as these are unfounded. We completed an extensive review of patient care provided by Dr. William Husel and stand by our decisions. Mount Carmel’s focus continues to be on caring for our patients.”

Trinity Health Corp. added in an email statement to Fox News Monday afternoon: “Allegations such as these are unfounded. We completed an extensive review of patient care provided by Dr. William Husel and stand by our decisions. Trinity Health’s and Mount Carmel’s focus continues to be on caring for our patients.”

In the lawsuit, Husel claims that patients died from their illnesses, not the administration of the powerful painkiller fentanyl ordered by him.

Husel also claims he received no formal training on hospital procedures from Mount Carmel when he was hired in 2013 as a critical-care physician and that he received a doctor of the year award in 2014.

Husel’s lawsuit seeks more than $50,000 in damages, along with attorney fees.

The Franklin County Prosecution’s Office said in a statement that Husel ordered that patients receive doses of fentanyl “in various amounts between 500 and 2,000 micrograms … that shortened their life and hastened or caused their death.”

The suspicious deaths occurred at Mount Carmel and St. Ann’s Hospitals in Columbus between Feb. 11, 2015, and Nov. 20, 2018, according to the statement.

Husel was fired from the Columbus-area Mount Carmel Health System in December 2018 and stripped of his medical license when allegations against him began to surface and an internal investigation by the hospital uncovered his fatal prescriptions.

More than two dozen wrongful-death lawsuits have been filed against Husel and the hospital system, some of which have been settled by the hospital for hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to the Associated Press.

Mount Carmel has admitted that Husel wasn’t removed from patient care until four weeks after concerns about him were raised last fall and that three patients died during that gap after receiving the excessive doses he ordered.

Hero ex-FBI agent who stopped Texas church shooting says he ‘had to take out’ gunman because ‘evil exists’

The ex-FBI agent who jumped into action when a gunman opened fire on worshipers during a church service in Texas said Monday he was placed in a position he didn’t want to be in, but had to react because “evil exists.”

Two men were killed when the gunman opened fire at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement on Sunday morning as more than 240 parishioners were inside. Within seconds, he was shot to death by two congregants who fired back.

Jack Wilson, a Hood County resident running for commissioner for Precinct 3 who is the head of the church’s security team, shared some details on his campaign’s Facebook page as he gave thanks to “all who have sent their prayers and comments on the events of today.”

TEXAS CHURCH SHOOTING GUNMAN HAD ‘SOMETHING NOT RIGHT’ ABOUT HIM, WITNESS SAYS

“The events at West Freeway Church of Christ put me in a position that I would hope no one would have to be in, but evil exists and I had to take out an active shooter in church,” he wrote. “I’m thankful to GOD that I have been blessed with the ability and desire to serve him in the role of head of security at the church.”

At a news conference Sunday night, White Settlement Police Department Chief J.P. Bevering told reporters the gunman – who has yet to be identified – had sat down in a pew before getting up, taking out a shotgun and firing at a parishioner, who was killed.

A livestream of the church service shows the gunman getting up from a pew and talking to someone at the back of the church before pulling out a gun and opening fire. Parishioners can then be heard screaming and seen ducking under pews or running as papers fly to the floor.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told reporters on Sunday the church’s team responded “quickly,” and within six seconds, the shooting was over.

“Two of the parishioners who were volunteers of the security force drew their weapons and took out the killer immediately, saving untold number of lives,” Patrick said.

TEXAS REPUBLICAN CREDITS CHURCH SECURITY TEAM, CHANGE IN STATE LAW AFTER SHOOTING

On his Facebook page, Wilson lists his personal history as a small business owner for 30 years and who served in negotiating proposals and contracts for a major defense company. He said he also served as a Hood County Reserve Deputy Sheriff from 1980 to 1986. It was not immediately clear when he served as an FBI agent.

“I continue to work with Federal, State and local levels of law enforcement,” he wrote on his personal history.

Wilson, who has previously posted on Facebook does “totally “stand” by President Trump, said his mission of running for the county office is to “be  accessible to serve the public with honesty and integrity, to help provide essential services through an efficient and effective use of the County’s resources and to be accountable to the citizens of Precinct 3 and all citizens of Hood County.”

The commissioner candidate says his wife of 51 years has raised his family in Granbury/Hood County for the last 42 years, and are the proud parents of three daughters and the “blessed grandparents” of 10, and 1 great-grandchild.

“I feel I have the knowledge and passion to move this growing county into a place all residents can be proud to call home,” he wrote.

“I am very sad in the loss of two dear friends and brothers in CHRIST, but evil does exist in this world and I and other members are not going to allow evil to succeed,” he wrote. “Please pray for all the members and their families in this time. Thank you for your prayers and understanding.”

Top animal hijinks of 2019: Here are the most viral moments, from hysterical gorillas to cannibalistic snakes

Overly dramatic gorillas fleeing raindrops, a cannibalistic snake and a thieving seagull were some of the animals in videos and photos that went viral in 2019.

In a year consumed by the Russia investigation and President Trump’s impeachment inquiry, the animal hijinks offer a brief respite.

Here are some of the year’s most amusing animal moments:

Gorillas make hilarious attempts to avoid raindrops

The gorillas at Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia went viral in March when video showed the primates behaving just like humans as they tried to take shelter from the rain.

The group of gorillas was seen huddling beneath an overhang as rain pelted the outdoor enclosure. One gorilla, named Acacia, hugged the wall of the overhang in an effort to stay dry and shimmied around a corner out of the rain.

As the three remaining grim-faced gorillas followed, each made a human-like face to show its revulsion to getting wet.

“Gorillas are magnificent, majestic creatures full of grace and beauty… except when it rains,” zookeeper Brooke Hunsinger wrote in the Facebook video caption.

Some social media users wryly suggested sending the gorillas umbrellas. The next hit video?

Cannibalistic snake get stung mid-meal

Florida wildlife proved yet again just how wild it can be.

A woman shared video of a venomous coral snake eating another snake as it was being attacked by a wasp – all while the serpents were inexplicably stuck in the branches of a bush.

Evangeline Cummings, a University of Florida employee, shot the video in her Gainesville backyard in October and shared it on Twitter.

The video showed an eastern coral snake biting into what appeared to be a dead rat snake as the two serpents hung in a rose bush. A wasp then landed on the coral snake, and moments later the reptile began to thrash about wildly to shoo away the stinging insect.

“So we’ve now settled on our favorite theory: Rat snake was dropped by a hawk or similar and landed in the rosebush,” Cummings wrote at the time. “But the rat snake is somewhat twisted around the branches so I wonder if when it was dropped it was still partially alive and tried to free itself and could not.”

An epic battle ensued.

Sly seagull steals lobster roll

A woman visiting York, Maine in June was about to try her first-ever lobster roll when things quickly went awry.

A seagull swiped the delicacy right out of her hand — but not before she captured the brazen thievery in a photo.

Alicia Jessop, a 34-year-old Pepperdine University professor, intended to chronicle the first bite of her pricey sandwich. Finding a scenic spot with the Nubble Lighthouse in the background, she framed the shot.

Seemingly out of nowhere, the seagull photo-bombed the shoot.

Jessop was happy to share the viral photo to give people a good laugh – and even got some free lobster rolls for her troubles.

“There are a lot worse things I could be known for, and if that means I get free lobster rolls and bring a little bit of laughter into people’s lives, I think that’s a good thing,” she said.

Bear named ‘T-shirt’ stuck in a dumpster

Sheriff’s deputies in Northern California helped free a huge black bear named “T-shirt,” who found himself trapped inside a dumpster while pursuing a meal in November.

the Placer County deputies found the struggling bear, named for the white patch of fur on his chest, early one morning in Kings Beach at Lake Tahoe and recorded the encounter on a dashcam video.

The footage shared on Twitter showed the cops unlocking the lid and trying to coax the bear out. T-shirt can be seen popping his head out and giving the deputies a fright.

T-shirt, who had several previous run-ins with the law, was eventually able to free himself by pushing the lid up with his paws and climbing out.

Goat named ‘Big Boy’ breaks into home, naps in bathroom

An Ohio teenager came home from school in October to find a sliding glass door shattered, a vile stench in the air and a “baa”-zarre guest napping on the bathroom floor: a billy goat named “Big Boy.”

“There’re all these awful stories in the world — people need this,” Jennifer Keathley told The Associated Press after her 18-year-old son Logan called to tell her about the surprise guest.

Deputies eventually returned Big Boy safely to his farm several miles away, however, the stench of his urine lingered no matter how many times they applied carpet deodorant and urine neutralizer.

Colorado man says ‘I really suck at this’ after he fails, gets caught trying to steal 3 cars, police say

A Colorado man who tried to steal multiple vehicles in recent weeks but was caught in the act each time confessed he… just isn’t good at stealing cars.

Todd Sheldon, 36, was caught trying to break into a car in Jefferson County earlier this month, “but was caught by the homeowner,” officials said. Just before deputies arrived on the scene, Sheldon escaped.

Moments later, however, authorities found Sheldon “just down the street…trying to break into another vehicle,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post on Friday. As deputies approached the man, who they say was “actively trying to break into the truck,” he made a shocking admission to them.

“I can’t,” Sheldon apparently told the officers. “I’m trying to steal this truck.”

Sheldon was taken into custody, booked into jail and later bonded out. But, as noted by Jefferson County officials, “the story doesn’t end there.”

Last week, deputies responded to a report of a man breaking into a car, and said when they arrived at the scene, they again saw Sheldon — trying to break into a vehicle.

It was at that point he allegedly told a deputy: “I really suck at this.”

The sheriff’s office said they wanted to share Sheldon’s story “in part because of its uniqueness, but also to remind folks to lock their cars and call us to report suspicious activity.”

“They say perseverance is a good thing, but that’s not always true,” officials quipped online. As of Friday, Sheldon was in jail.

Florida woman, 70, tased 3 times as deputies try to arrest her grandson

A 70-year-old Florida woman was tased three times on her birthday, after police claimed she was uncooperative when they were trying to arrest her grandson.

Barbara Pinkey, of Bradenton, was at home on Dec. 26 when deputies with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office tried executing an arrest warrant for her grandson, Tevin Turner, for carrying a concealed firearm, which was a violation of his probation.

“We heard a knock at the door,” Pinkey told WFLA. “Actually, there wasn’t a knock. I think they kicked the door. Bam! Bam! At the door.”

Pinkey answered deputies at the door – after someone else inside the home did and became uncooperative themselves – and told them they couldn’t enter without a search warrant, which they said was irrelevant because they had an arrest warrant, according to WTSP. Pinkey said that when Turner was released on probation, he listed her address as his own, but claimed he didn’t live at the residence.

At that point, investigators told her she could be arrested for obstructing justice, and she allegedly became uncooperative — and shut the door on them.

“I was just hollering. I was scared. I didn’t know what else to do. I was just hollering,” Pinkney said.

Deputies tried to arrest Pinkey, but she pulled away and allegedly pushed an officer in the chest. That deputy used his Taser on the woman, but claimed it had no impact on her, so he triggered the Taser a second time.

The second tase resulted with Pinkey on the ground, but she allegedly kept resisting authorities, according to the sheriff’s office, which said the deputy tased Pinkey a third time. Eventually, a second Manatee County deputy had to help restrain Pinkey.

The encounter was filmed by Pinkey’s granddaughter-in-law, Elizabeth Francisco, who told WFLA: “It’s not something that you see every day or something you expect to happen. Even if she wasn’t my grandmother. Dang, this is a 70-year-old woman.”

Pinkey, who said she’s never had trouble with law enforcement and now has trouble sleeping at night, was arrested and charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer and obstructing justice, and was released on a $1,000 bond.
