Uber driver who fatally shot drunken passenger not guilty of murder

Westlake Legal Group uber Uber driver who fatally shot drunken passenger not guilty of murder Morgan Phillips fox-news/us/us-regions/west/colorado fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/judiciary/federal-courts fox news fnc/us fnc article 71ee5e1d-3933-5461-9197-a5fb439d7125

The Uber driver who fatally shot a drunken, unruly passenger was found not guilty of murder by a Colorado jury on Thursday.

Michael Hancock, 31, picked up Hyun Kim, 45, outside a karaoke bar in June 2018. Hancock said that during the ride, Kim made unwanted sexual advances and attacked him when he threatened to pull over — the crux of a self-defense defense.

When Hancock arrived at Kim’s destination two miles away, surveillance video showed Kim– who had a blood alcohol content level of .308 when the autopsy was performed — did not get out of the car.

Uber records showed that by the time Hancock shot Kim, the car had traveled about 70 miles from the spot Kim was picked up.

Defense lawyers said Hancock demanded that Kim enter another address into the Uber app. They said Kim touched Hancock more than once on the leg and became aggressive. Kim punched the driver in the face and reached for the steering wheel and ignition. Prosecutors said Hancock stopped the car, went to the front passenger side where Kim was sitting, and fired 10 bullets from his semi-automatic handgun. At least five struck Kim.

A witness called 911 and Hancock’s defense said Hancock got on the phone, told dispatchers he had been attacked and asked first responders to hurry so Kim might live, according to KMGH-TV.

EL PASO WALMART MASSACRE SUSPECT PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO CAPITAL MURDER CHARGES

Defense lawyer Johnna Stuart said Hancock tried to jump out of his still-rolling car, but Kim attempted to pull him back by his dreadlocks,  prompting Hancock to grab the gun.

Prosecutors said it was possible Kim did not get out at his destination because he was passed out and Hancock drove around to increase the fare. They acknowledged that Kim likely provoked a fight in the car, but said he could have woken up startled and upset about being driven around in the car. Hancock did have an injury above his eyebrow after the killing, but prosecutors said it was not serious enough for him to have reasonably feared for his life.

Uber records showed no previous altercations for either man.

Deputy District Attorney Brenna Zortman said she believed Hancock was sorry for shooting Kim but said the killing was deliberate. “Regret does not negate intent,” she said.

As the not-guilty verdict was read, Hancock’s family hugged, sobbed and cheered. The attorney who represents Kim’s kin said they plan to file a wrongful-death lawsuit against Uber.

Antarctica ice shelves’ edges being attacked by warm ocean water, new study reveals

Upside-down “rivers” of warm ocean water are attacking the edges of Antarctic ice shelves from below, creating conditions ripe for break-ups and sea-level rise, according to scientists.

A study published Thursday in Science Advances examines this process, which could affect the continent’s future.

“Warm water circulation is attacking the undersides of these ice shelves at their most vulnerable points,” said Karen Alley, a visiting assistant professor of Earth Sciences at The College of Wooster in Ohio, in a statement. “These effects matter,” she said. “But exactly how much, we don’t yet know. We need to.”

Satellite images show polynyas (open-water regions) forming at the ends of basal channels beneath shear margins of the East Getz Ice Shelf. (Karen Alley/The College of Wooster and NASA MODIS/MODIS Antarctic Ice Shelf Image Archive at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, CU Boulder.)

Ice shelves float out on the ocean at the edges of land-based ice sheets, according to scientists, and about 75 percent of the Antarctic continent is surrounded by these extensions of the sheet.

The shelves can be hemmed in by bumps and walls in the ocean floor. When restrained, the ice shelves slow down the flow of ice from the interior of the continent toward the ocean.

However, if an ice shelf retreats or breaks apart, ice on land flows much more quickly into the ocean, increasing rates of sea-level rise.

CNN boss Jeff Zucker escapes questions about old colleague Matt Lauer

NBC News executives are again on their heels as new questions arise about how the network handled sexual misconduct allegations against Matt Lauer — but one puzzling question is how Jeff Zucker, Lauer’s boss for many years and the current CNN president, has avoided similar criticisms.

Embattled NBC News Chairman Andy Lack and his top deputy, Noah Oppenheim are reportedly “quivering in their suits,” while Zucker has denied any knowledge of Lauer’s transgressions and still sits atop the liberal CNN.

Zucker, who began his career at the Peacock Network, rose from NBC researcher all the way to president and CEO of NBC Universal. Along the way, he was the executive producer of “Today” when Lauer was hired in 1994.

NBC NEWS PRESIDENT MOCKED BY STAFFERS DURING FIERY MEETING ABOUT LAUER RAPE CLAIM

CNN president Jeff Zucker was Matt Lauer’s longtime boss at NBC’s “Today” show.

By 2001, Zucker was president of NBC Entertainment. In this role, he resumed oversight of Lauer — then NBC’s biggest star — and was frequently in touch with him about important matters related to “Today.”

A former NBC News employee with knowledge of Zucker’s relationship with Lauer feels the two shared a unique bond.

“They are very close friends. Jeff even did a Friars Club roast of Matt where he cracked jokes about Matt’s marital problems,” the former NBC News employee told Fox News. “At NBC, [Zucker] was the one person who could tell Matt to shut up.”

NBC NEWS BOSS ANDY LACK’S LEADERSHIP SCRUTINIZED AS RONAN FARROW TELL-ALL APPROACHES

At the 2008 roast, Zucker made several lewd remarks about Lauer.

“It’s just good to see Matt up here and not under my desk,” Zucker said from the podium, according to a media executive who attended. “I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he masturbates.”

When Lauer was abruptly fired by NBC for sexual misconduct nine years later, in 2017, Zucker said at Business Insider’s Ignition conference that the news was ‘incredibly disturbing” and “heartbreaking.”

“I’ve known Matt for 25 years and, I didn’t know this Matt,” Zucker claimed at the time. “There was never a complaint about Matt. … There was never a suggestion of that kind of deviant or predatory behavior. There was never even a whisper of it.”

At the time, former CNN Chief White House Correspondent and USC Annenberg journalism professor Jessica Yellin said Zucker’s comments missed the point.

“This speaks to a problem with the culture and leadership of the workplace,” Yellin wrote in a scathing Twitter thread. “Creating a workplace in which women feel they can’t report harassment isn’t exonerating.”

Zucker’s comments at the conference mirrored the subsequent findings of a controversial internal review that NBC News launched to determine who knew about Lauer’s alleged misconduct. Lack insisted on keeping the investigation in-house, despite calls for an outside firm to take over. NBC General Counsel Kim Harris eventually declared that her colleagues were completely oblivious to Lauer’s supposed behavior.

ANDY LACK TAKES AIM AT FARROW’S CLAIMS HE WAS BLOCKED FROM REPORTING ON ALLEGED WEINSTEIN CRIMES

NBC declared that the investigation “found no evidence indicating that any NBC News or ‘Today’ show leadership” received any complaints about Lauer’s misconduct prior to the November 2017 complaint that resulted in his ousting. But once Lauer was fired, complaints began to surface and a 2017 New York Times report about a Lauer incident that allegedly happened during Zucker’s time at NBC was particularly shocking.

“One complaint came from a former employee who said Mr. Lauer had summoned her to his office in 2001, locked the door and sexually assaulted her,” The New York Times reported. “She told The Times that she passed out and had to be taken to a nurse.”

‘TODAY’ ADDRESSES ‘APPALLING’ NEW MATT LAUER REPORT: ‘IT’S JUST VERY PAINFUL’

The CNN boss and Lauer are apparently still friends and the fallen morning show host reportedly attended Zucker’s magic-themed birthday bash earlier this year alongside Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo.

The New York Post, which first reported that a “relaxed-looking” Lauer attended the party, followed up with a report that Zucker was forced to shoot down rumors that Lauer would revive his career at CNN.

“Some staff were starting to freak out that Matt Lauer was suddenly about to come back from the dead and show up at CNN’s shiny new Manhattan office at Hudson Yards,” a CNN insider told the Post in May.

The insider added that “some senior female employees would refuse to work with him,” but the women of CNN weren’t put in that position after all. Zucker told concerned staffers that “there is absolutely no truth at all in the reports that Matt is coming to CNN,” according to the Post.

Lauer reportedly isn’t working for CNN anytime soon, but Zucker’s network gave his old pal a pass on prime-time coverage of the disgraced anchor’s latest scandal.

Ronan Farrow’s upcoming “Catch and Kill” contains a disputed claim that Lauer raped an NBC colleague during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Japan. While NBC found the bombshell claim important enough to cover on its own “Nightly News” and “Today,” Zucker’s CNN completely ignored the story during prime time.

“Anderson Cooper 360,” “Cuomo Prime Time,” “CNN Tonight” and “White House in Crisis” failed to mention Lauer on Wednesday, according to a review of transcripts by Fox News.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

GOP lawmaker requests FEC watchdog investigate chair’s ‘political’ statements

Westlake Legal Group Ellen-Weintraub-GettyImages-131256738 GOP lawmaker requests FEC watchdog investigate chair's 'political' statements fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/elections fox news fnc/politics fnc cf8c052d-777f-5b73-8402-f833b8ff17ca Bradford Betz article

The top Republican on the House Committee on House Administration urged the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) inspector general on Thursday to investigate the agency’s leader for allegedly using her position to publicly disparage President Trump, including making multiple media appearances in which she referred to the president as a danger to democracy.

The request by Rodney Davis, R-Ill. was outlined in a 4-page memo to FEC Inspector General Christopher L. Skinner. In it, Davis chastised FEC Chair Ellen L. Weintraub for using government time and resources for “ideological, and at times, political, purposes.” He recounted four instances where Weintraub had used FEC resources to publish her personal opinions on President Trump.

In a February 2017 statement issued on FEC letterhead, Weintraub requested the president show evidence of “alleged voter fraud in New Hampshire,” a reference to Trump’s claim that illegal voting had cost him the state’s four electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election. In a March follow-up letter, Weintraub reiterated that request.

In May 2017, Weintraub wrote a statement, again on FEC letterhead, rebuking Trump for his creation of an Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, saying: “Mr. President, take responsibility for your words. Document them if you can. Apologize to them if you have to. But don’t ship them off to a commission.”

FEC CHAIR: TRUMP IS ‘DAMAGING TO OUR DEMOCRACY’ WITH ‘BASELESS’ VOTER FRAUD ALLEGATIONS

Weintraub wrote a second letter to Trump about his New Hampshire voter fraud claims in August 2019 in a tone Davis described as “partisan snark.”

“To put it in terms a former casino operator should understand: There comes a time when you need to lay your cards on the fable or fold,” she wrote.

The letter was not hosted on the FEC website, but was drafted with the agency’s letterhead and appeared on Weintraub’s Twitter feed, according to Davis.

Davis also criticized Weintraub for appearances on CNN and MSNBC to “discuss matters outside the purview of the FEC.” On at least two occasions, Weintraub dismissed Trump’s claims as “conspiracy theories” that are “damaging to our democracy.”

Davis argued that Weintraub had violated the FEC’s nonpartisan position by failing to indicate “in any interview that she was speaking as a private citizen and not as Chair of the nonpartisan FEC.”

Because of her ostensible bias against President Trump, Weintraub “should publicly admit her political differences with the President, disclose her conflict of interest, and at the very least, recuse herself from voting on Matters Under Review involving the President,” Davis wrote.

Responding to Davis’ memo via Twitter, Weintraub wrote she would “not be silenced” and that the “independence of the United States Federal Election Commission will not be compromised.”

Weintraub declined Fox News’ request for comment.

House Dems subpoena Energy Secretary Rick Perry for Ukraine docs in impeachment inquiry

Westlake Legal Group AP19276859212445 House Dems subpoena Energy Secretary Rick Perry for Ukraine docs in impeachment inquiry Melissa Leon fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc c76932d6-ce0f-580d-b63d-17edf437d621 article

Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Thursday became the latest Trump administration official to be subpoenaed in connection with the House impeachment inquiry, as a trio of House Democratic committee chairmen requested documents relating to Ukraine.

The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees requested “key documents” from Perry by Oct. 18, the chairmen announced in a press release.

Democrats have already subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the Pentagon,the White House Office of Management and Budget and U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland for documents as lawmakers probe a July 25 phone call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Recently, public reports have raised questions about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the president’s stark message to the Ukrainian president,” Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff, Elijah Cummings and Eliot Engel said of Perry. “These reports have also raised significant questions about your efforts to press Ukrainian officials to change the management structure at a Ukrainian state-owned energy company to benefit individuals involved with Rudy Giuliani’s push to get Ukrainian officials to interfere in our 2020 election.”

Two associates of Trump lawyer and confidant Rudy Giuliani who have been linked to his efforts to conduct investigations in Ukraine were indicted for campaign finance violations, according to court documents released Thursday. Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are accused of using a limited liability company to make political contributions related to American elections, which violates Federal Election Commission (FEC) rules barring contributions from foreign nationals.

GIULIANI ASSOCIATES ARRESTED WHILE TRYING TO BOARD INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT WITH ONE-WAY TICKETS, PROSECUTORS SAY

The expanding impeachment probe was launched last month after an intelligence community member’s whistleblower complaint raised concerns about president’s Ukraine phone call. In it, Trump asked Zelensky to probe onetime Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter and their business dealings in Ukraine. Joe Biden has for months been seen as Democrats’ frontrunner in the 2020 election against Trump.

Trump has denied abusing his position, saying the call was “perfect,” and Zelensky said Thursday there was “no blackmail” during their call.

The whistleblower accused the president of “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election,” claiming Trump used $400 million in military aid, frozen in the days before that fateful phone call, to induce Zelensky to open a Biden inquiry.

Trump reportedly told House Republicans it was Perry who suggested he call Zelensky back in July, according to news outlet Axios.

RICK PERRY DENIES DISCUSSING BIDENS WITH TRUMP OR UKRAINE OFFICIALS: REPORTS

According to one source, Trump said something to the effect of: “Not a lot of people know this but, I didn’t even want to make the call. The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to. Something about an LNG [liquified natural gas] plant,” Axios reported, saying two other sources agreed with that recollection.

Perry denied ever mentioning the Bidens during discussions with Ukrainian officials or the president. On Friday he told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an exclusive interview that his dealings in Ukraine were part of the United States’ effort to clean up corruption there.

President Trump has said Joe Biden’s efforts to oust a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the energy firm Burisma Holdings — where Hunter Biden had held a board seat — should be investigated for corruption.

On Monday, Perry denied rumors that he would resign at the end of November amid questions about his role in the controversy surrounding the now-infamous Trump-Zelensky call.

READ THE WHITE HOUSE LETTER

The White House issued an eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Tuesday and said it wouldn’t comply with the “illegitimate and unconstitutional” impeachment inquiry.

Fox News’ Ronn Blitzer, Dom Calicchio, Louis Casiano and Charles Creitz contributed to this report.

Amazon spokesman says attacks against Trump administration were ‘personal’ views after being called out on Twitter

Amazon spokesman Jay Carney backtracked on Thursday after being called out for questioning the patriotism of the Trump administration.

“Virtually with no exception, everyone I dealt with in those administrations, whether I personally agreed or disagreed with what they thought were the right policy decisions or the right way to approach things, I never doubted that they were patriots. I never doubted that they believed they were doing things that were in the best interest of the country,” Carney, who served as Barack Obama’s press secretary, reportedly said on stage during the GeekWire Summit in Seattle. “I don’t feel that way now.”

He went on to slam the current administration’s lack of honesty.

“I never lied,” he said, referring to his time at the White House, according to Business Insider. “When you can’t answer something or you don’t have a good answer to give, you say, ‘I’ll take that question’ or ‘I don’t have an answer for you.’ You don’t lie. And there doesn’t seem to be that standard today.”

‘Another promise made is kept’: Tomi Lahren applauds Trump’s decision to remove troops from Syria

Westlake Legal Group Lahren_Tomi_SERIOUS 'Another promise made is kept': Tomi Lahren applauds Trump's decision to remove troops from Syria Yael Halon fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc be4aa5e5-7a10-52c5-b68f-f44d99d4106a article

“Another promise made is kept,” said Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren while applauding President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops from Syria.

“Whether the neocon Republicans like it or not, President Trump has vowed to withdraw remaining U.S. troops from Syria and should keep his promise to get us the heck out of endless and unwinnable wars,” she said on her Fox Nation show “Final Thoughts.”

“How many times are we going to stick our noses in the business of other nations before we realize democracy-spreading in the Middle East does not work?”

— Tomi Lahren, Fox Nation host

TURKEY WARNS OF FLOODING EUROPE WITH SYRIAN REFUGEES

Lahren was responding to criticism of the President’s decision. Since Trump’s announcement, a Turkish military offensive in northern Syria has left more than 100 Kurdish forces dead, according to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkey has long-threatened to attack the Kurdish militia in Syria, which it says is linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, which has led an insurgency against Turkey for 35 years.

MEGHAN MCCAIN: TRUMP, RAND PAUL HAVE ‘BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS

Trump tweeted Wednesday that the United States should never have been in the Middle East in the first place. He also put the onus on Turkey to stabilize the region and take up arms against any remaining ISIS elements.

“President Trump is spot-on. Why the hell are we risking American lives and resources on a tribal war we have zero business fighting? Enough,” she said. “How many times are we going to stick our noses in the business of other nations before we realize democracy-spreading in the Middle East does not work.”

“How many times are we going to attempt to pick winners and losers in a civil and tribal war we do not understand and cannot win? Why? Because there are no winners in a war like this — and even if there were, it wouldn’t be the United States,” she said. “Yes, we support the Kurds and their efforts but at what point are we going to stop the hand-holding?”

 “Besides that, we hand the “moderate opposition”  funding, training, American blood, sweat and tears and then what always tends to happen? It blows up in our faces.”

— Tomi Lahren, Fox Nation host

“Besides that, we hand the ‘moderate opposition’  funding, training, American blood, sweat and tears and then what always tends to happen? It blows up in our faces, sometimes quite literally. “

Lahren also took aim at Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., after Graham said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends” that removing troops from Syria would be “one of the biggest follies of [Trump’s] presidency and cause ISIS to reemerge in the region.”

“I don’t care what hysterical Lindsey Graham or Mitch McConnell have to say,” said Lahren. “They are beholden to the giant military-industrial complex and while it might make some people very rich, it does nothing to serve our national interests.”

TOMI LAHREN: LIBERALS ‘BUTT OUT’

Lahren urged the public to focus on issues affecting the U.S. every day, such as the opioid epidemic, homelessness, and immigration.

“We have enough problems right here at home… when are we going to fight for our own interests and protect our own country? We’ve got crumbling infrastructure, an opioid epidemic, veterans living on the streets, and a southwest border that’s being invaded on a daily basis.”

— Tomi Lahren, Fox Nation host

“We have enough problems right here at home,” said Lahren. “When are we going to fight for our own interests and protect our own country? We’ve got crumbling infrastructure, an opioid epidemic, veterans living on the streets, and a southwest border that’s being invaded on a daily basis.”

“It’s not our war to win because it’s not our war, period. President Trump, trust your gut instinct with this one. We shouldn’t be getting entangled in the mess that is Iran, Yemen, Syria or anywhere else,” said Lahren.

Reiterating her support for Trump, the Fox Nation host praised the president for delivering on his 2016 campaign promises and told him that “the American people have his back.”

“It’s America First! That’s what you ran on, that’s what you campaigned for, that’s what you won on. And the neocon establishment hacks aside, getting us out of these endless wars is a bipartisan goal you should stand behind,” said Lahren.

“Don’t let the establishment change your mind,” Lahren concluded. “They will turn on you at the drop of a hat and their affection isn’t what you should be vying for. The American people have your back and we want you to stand your ground.”

Ed Sheeran, Prince Harry promote World Mental Health Day with comedic video

Singer Ed Sheeran and Prince Harry have joined forces to bring awareness to World Mental Health Day.

The one minute and 40-second video, posted to Instagram Thursday morning, features Sheeran, 28, excitedly preparing for his meeting with Harry, 35.

In the video, the duo sits down to discuss creating a video about a cause Harry is “quite passionate about.” It appears, however, that the two aren’t on the same page.

“I’ve been trying to write a song about this,” Sheeran says.

“Someone with a skill set, to be able to write lyrics of a song to raise awareness, I think would be amazing,” Harry responded.

“Yeah, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do,” Sheeran said. “People just don’t understand what it’s like for people like us.”

The comment gave Harry pause, so Sheeran explained, “The jokes and snide comments, I feel like it’s time we stood up and said ‘we’re not going to take this anymore, we’re gingers and we’re going to fight.'”

The Duke of Sussex then explains that the song wouldn’t be for the empowerment of redheads, but for World Mental Health Day.

The video was in jest, but at the end, the team took a moment to ask viewers to reach out to anyone that might be suffering.

The video comes just days after Harry and Meghan Markle‘s charitable endeavors were officially removed from the Royal Foundation website.
