Democratic megadonor Ed Buck now facing allegations of human trafficking, revenge porn

Ed Buck, the California Democratic megadonor suspected in the deaths of two black men who suffered fatal crystal methamphetamine overdoses in his home 18 months apart, is now facing allegations of human trafficking and revenge porn, according to a new report.

The Daily Beast reported that the family of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore has made the new allegations as part of an ongoing civil case against Buck, who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic Party candidates in California and is well known in LGBTQ political circles. Moore died of a methamphetamine overdose in July 2017. He was found naked on a mattress in Buck’s living room, which was littered with drug paraphernalia.

The complaint by Moore’s family previously alleged that Buck injected Moore with crystal meth and required Moore to view “hardcore gay male pornography which played loudly on a large flatscreen television set,” while engaging in sex acts, according to the Beast.

SECOND MAN FOUND DEAD OF OVERDOSE WITH DEMOCRATIC DONOR ED  BUCK WAS NO DRUG ABUSER, FRIENDS SAY

The latest allegation from Moore’s family claims that Buck “knowingly utilized interstate commerce for the purpose of recruiting, enticing and transporting” Moore from Texas to Los Angeles, for “commercial sex acts.”

The complaint claims that Buck paid for Moore’s transportation and promised to pay Moore for the rendezvous. It also said Buck distributed a sexually explicit video recording of Moore to “one of several unnamed defendants” in April of this year.

The case was originally filed in Los Angeles Superior Court but moved to federal court in May.

Buck’s attorney, Seymour Amster, didn’t return Fox News’ calls or emails, but told the Daily Beast that he would “reserve our comment to our court filings and we will be aggressively litigating this.”

The second man who died at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment, 55-year-old Timothy Dean, also suffered a methamphetamine overdose, according to a report.

Mom of teen accused of killing Nashville officer in crash releases apology letter

The mother of a teenage girl charged in a car crash that killed a Tennessee police officer on the Fourth of July has released a letter to the officer’s family and the family of her daughter’s passenger, who was seriously injured in the crash.

The mother of Jayona Brown, 17, wrote to Metro Nashville police officer John Anderson’s family on Monday: “I can’t imagine the pain and sorrow your entire family must feel during this difficult time.”

NASHVILLE OFFICER KILLED AFTER 17-YEAR-OLD DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE SLAMMED INTO HIS POLICE VEHICLE WHILE ON DUTY, POLICE SAY

“I know nothing I say or do will ease your pain or mend your hearts. However, please accept my deepest condolences and apologies to your entire family,” she continued. “May God continue to surround you with love, support and friends to help you through this emotional time.”

Brown’s attorney, Michie Gibson, told Fox News Tuesday that the teen snuck out of her mom’s home early on July 4 with her aunt’s 2016 Ford Fusion.

Metro Nashville Police said an officer tried to pull Brown over but she took off and crashed into Officer Anderson’s patrol vehicle after running a flashing red traffic light, killing him.

Police said Brown was driving without a license. The teen was booked into juvenile detention on charges of vehicular homicide by recklessness, felony evading arrest, aggravated assault by recklessness, driving on a suspended license and juvenile curfew violation.

Gibson told Fox News that “sincere sorrow for the family” is what prompted Brown’s mother to send the letter.

He added, “A person who was just serving and protecting the community, an innocent victim, was killed, is the mother’s concern.”

Gibson said the first thing an emotional Brown told him is, “I didn’t mean to hurt anyone.”

On Monday, The Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted that the police chief “presented the Medal of Valor, the MNPD’s highest honor, to Officer John Anderson’s family.”

Anderson’s funeral was held on Monday.

Brown’s passenger, Antona Esaw, was rushed to an area hospital in critical condition after the crash. She has since been released from the hospital, a spokeswoman told Fox News.

Bret Baier: Trump administration will consider ‘retooling’ citizenship question

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057099401001_6057100312001-vs Bret Baier: Trump administration will consider 'retooling' citizenship question fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/us fnc article Anna Hopkins 51aeb769-b738-5e06-8007-c1faa03cd5bf

Bret Baier has argued that the Trump administration will continue to push for inclusion of the controversial citizenship question on the 2020 census, despite being thwarted by the Supreme Court last week.

It was ruled last month the question couldn’t be added for now, but left open the possibility that additional arguments could change its mind. Civil rights groups argued that the Trump administration’s reasons for including the question were merely pretextual efforts to discourage illegal immigrants from responding to the Census.

“There’s a possibility of retooling it and going a different way at it,” Baier said during a Tuesday appearance on “The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino.”

CAL THOMAS: CENSORING THE CENSUS IS ABOUT POLITICS, NOT THE LAW

“The administration, at the president’s guidance, will try to do that,” the “Special Report” host continued.

The Commerce Department has previously said that the deadline to begin the process of printing census forms was June 30, but President Trump has made clear his desire to delay census printing until the question is included.

“I have asked the lawyers if they can delay the Census, no matter how long, until the United States Supreme Court is given additional information from which it can make a final and decisive decision on this very critical matter,” he tweeted on June 27, the day the decision was handed down.

The question was controversial and the subject of several lawsuits after many lawmakers argued that residents who are not living legally in the United States would simply not return the census – leading to misappropriation of resources and improper political representation.

Population counts from the Census are used to apportion House seats among the 50 states, and a new electoral map based on the Census will be in effect for the 2024 presidential election. States receive votes in the Electoral College equal to the number of members in their congressional delegation, counting both House and Senate seats.

James Patterson: Epstein case worse than Weinstein, Cosby, others during #MeToo era

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6057120943001_6057124358001-vs James Patterson: Epstein case worse than Weinstein, Cosby, others during #MeToo era Sam Dorman fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bill-cosby fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/us fnc article 63f3d913-bcc5-50b4-b7f8-9a6c9168856d

Jeffrey Epstein alleged crimes are worse than Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and comedian Bill Cosby, and arguably the worst of the #MeToo era, according to best-selling author James Patterson.

Patterson, who wrote the book on Epstein — Filthy Rich: The Billionaire’s Sex Scandal–The Shocking True Story of Jeffrey Epstein, discussed the disgraced financiers accused acts during an interview on “The Daily Briefing” on Tuesday.

Epstein was charged this week with sex trafficking and conspiracy during the early 2000s. He pleaded not guilty on Monday in New York City federal court.

“It’s horrifying… these are girls, allegedly hundreds of girls,” Patterson told host Dana Perino while discussing the charges against Epstein. The veteran author then told Perino he had been told personally that President Trump kicked Epstein out of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida after learning of an alleged incident with a staff member.

TRUMP SAYS HE WAS ‘NOT A FAN’ OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN, DESPITE PAST COMMENTS

“There were some complaints about Epstein at Mar-a-Lago,” he said. “I spoke to the head of the sap there. I said, ‘did you ever meet Epstein?’ She said, ‘oh yes… he was inappropriate with some of the younger women there.’

“She said she went to Trump and he threw him out of the club.”

Patterson told Perino that hundreds of people have come up to him and thanked him for writing his book “Filthy Rich” on Epstein. The author also speculated that Epstein would get significant time behind bars, saying: I would be surprised if Epstein didn’t spend a fair amount of time in jail.”

Epstein’s case has created a flurry of media coverage and prompted questions about the president and others’ relationships with the accused sex offender.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump said he was “not a fan” of Epstein, despite making comments in the past praising the wealthy hedge fund manager.

AG BARR WILL NOT RECUSE HIMSELF FROM EPSTEIN CASE, DESPITE INITIAL STATEMENT

During a meeting in the Oval Office with the emir of Qatar, the president was asked about his relationship with the 66-year-old.

“I know him, just like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Trump said. “People in Palm Beach knew him. He was a fixture in Palm Beach.”

“I had a falling out with him a long time ago,” Trump continued. “I don’t think I’ve spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan. I was not a fan of his. That I can tell you. I was not a fan.”

BILL CLINTON ‘KNOWS NOTHING’ ABOUT EPSTEIN’S ‘TERRIBLE CRIMES’

Back in 2002, when New York Magazine was profiling Epstein, Trump touted their relationship.

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with,” Trump reportedly said. “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Epstein and Trump were said to have been friends—something the president’s legal team has denied.

Epstein was also once friends with former President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew.

PELOSI CALLS FOR ACOSTA TO STEP DOWN OVER EPSTEIN PLEA DEAL, HITS TRUMP

Clinton, on Monday, released a statement acknowledging that he had taken a total of four trips on Epstein’s private jet, but said he “knows nothing” about the “terrible crimes” linked to Epstein.

Separately, claims in court showed that Trump may have flown on the jet at least once as well.

On “Daily Briefing,” Patterson said nobody knew of Epstein’s alleged crimes, despite him being a well-known figure.

“Nobody knew. You can’t do something like that. If anybody knows — I have friends in town right now. They live on the street. They didn’t know. They lived two houses away,” he said.

The best-selling author then said he believes Clinton did not know, and he “knows Trump didn’t know.”

Epstein was charged this week with sex trafficking and conspiracy during the early 2000s. Epstein pleaded not guilty on Monday in New York City federal court.

“The victims described herein were as young as 14 years old at the time they were abused…and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation,” prosecutors wrote in court documents. “Epstein intentionally sought out minors and knew that many of his victims were in fact under the age of 18.”

Epstein allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls” in addition to paying victims to recruit other underage girls.

Prosecutors also allege Epstein “worked and conspired with others, including employees and associates” who helped facilitate his conduct by contacting victims and scheduling their sexual encounters with the 66-year-old at his mansion in New York City and Palm, Beach, Fla.

Victims would be paid hundreds of dollars in cash by either Epstein or one of his associates or employees, according to prosecutors. The 66-year-old also allegedly “incentivized his victims” to become recruiters by paying the victim-recruiters hundreds of dollars for each girl brought to him.

Fox News’ Brooke Singman contributed to this report.

Texas police find second set of human bones near park outside of Houston

Police in Texas are combing a park outside of Houston on Tuesday after finding human bones at an abandoned property just steps away from where another set of bones had been discovered during the weekend.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez announced on Twitter that police once again have been called to Moncreif Park in Channelview after a volunteer search group recently “found bones at an abandoned property adjacent to the park.”

Those bones, like the ones found Sunday inside the park, were determined by a medical examiner to have come from a human, he added.

“There’s access to the water. It’s unknown if those bones, or a body at some point floated up,” Sgt. Dennis Wolfford told KHOU after the initial find this past weekend. “At this point, it’s hard to tell. The bones appear to be fairly aged. They’ve been out here for a while, I would think.”

Women’s stolen wallet discovered in vent with 14 others at old Illinois high school 75 years later

A Missouri woman has been reunited with her stolen wallet 75 years after it went missing when it was discovered — along with 14 others — during a renovation at her old high school in a neighboring state.

The pastor of City Hope Church, Seth Baltzell, wrote on Facebook the discovery was made amid demolition work at the old Centralia High School in Centralia, Ill. A stash of 15 wallets from the mid-1940’s was found stuffed inside a heating vent.

“While someone took the cash they left behind all the pictures, information and other documents,” Baltzell wrote.

Baltzell, who is moving his church into the school, said the wallets to appeared to have been from mostly women and school ID’s showed they were from the mid-1940’s.

“There are lots of things like pictures of soldiers,” he told KSDK.

After posting the photo and names of people that were discovered inside the vent, Baltzell’s Facebook post received over 1,100 shares.

He was later contacted by the family of 89-year-old Betty June Sissom, who grew up in Centralia and now lives in Chesterfield, Mo.

“I remember it was red and I remember I lost my wallet…I can’t believe this from all these years ago. That’s me with a little boy by the name of Jimmy Kane and I had a crush on him,” Sissom told the television station. “Oh my goodness, look at the boys’ pictures I have. They took all the money, huh?”

Sissom said even without finding money inside, being able to get her wallet with some photos back was “unbelievable.”

“This is exciting,” she told KSDK-TV. “I can’t believe after all of these years.”

Giant sinkhole in Virginia swallows, mangles parked car, video shows

Virginia crews lifted a crushed car out of a sinkhole last week after the road opened up and swallowed the parked vehicle.

The sinkhole opened up Thursday night in Dale City and consumed the unoccupied red car, FOX5 DC reported. Neighbors can be heard on a video screaming in disbelief as the car’s front fender is ripped off when it falls into the hole.

“It’s crazy, we bought our house in 1984 and nothing like this has ever happened on this road,” neighbor Marleen Brumbaugh told FOX5.

Photos posted by the Prince William Police Department on Friday showed crews descending into the hole to hook the car up to a crane. A tow truck raised the crushed vehicle back onto the road.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) officials told WUSA-TV that record rainfall likely caused the road, which travels over a creek, to collapse.

“The water took the pipe and it just pushed the pipe, blew them out down the creek,” VDOT supervisor Mike Collier told the station.

Repairs to the road were reportedly expected to take a week.
