Katie Hill, Rising Democratic Star in House, Denies Relationship With Aide

Westlake Legal Group 22dc-hill-facebookJumbo Katie Hill, Rising Democratic Star in House, Denies Relationship With Aide House of Representatives Hill, Katie (1987- ) Democratic Party California

WASHINGTON — Representative Katie Hill, a first-term Democrat widely considered a rising star in her party, on Tuesday denied reports that she had a sexual relationship with a member of her staff, but refused to comment on an allegation that she was intimately involved with a campaign aide, saying that a nude photograph of her and another woman was published on the internet without her consent.

Ms. Hill, 32, of California, made her comments in a brief interview and a statement in response to a report on the conservative news site RedState alleging that she had been intimately involved with her legislative director and a young campaign aide while married to her husband, whom she is divorcing.

Members of Congress are barred by House rules from engaging in sexual relationships with their aides, but the rules do not cover campaign staff. Ms. Hill said the photograph, which appears to show the congresswoman seated and brushing the hair of another woman, was the subject of a police investigation.

“Intimate photos of me and another individual were published by Republican operatives on the internet without my consent,” Ms. Hill said in the statement.

“I have notified Capitol Hill police, who are investigating the situation and potential legal violations of those who posted and distributed the photos, and therefore will have no further comment on the digital materials,” she said.

Ms. Hill said that the stories, which she called “a smear campaign,” were being driven by Republican operatives and a “husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me,” and that she had spoken to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her top lieutenant, Representative Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, about the matter. Mr. Hoyer declined to comment, and a spokesman for Ms. Pelosi said the speaker was on her way to Baltimore on Tuesday for the funeral of her brother.

Ms. Hill, who campaigned to make history as the first openly bisexual congresswoman from California, unseated a Republican, former Representative Steve Knight, in the so-called blue wave that carried Democrats to power in the House in 2018. She is a favorite of Ms. Pelosi, who named her vice chairwoman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, an unusually high-ranking position for a freshman on a panel that is playing a crucial role in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Top Boeing Executive to Leave as 737 Max Crisis Swells

Boeing’s executive in charge of commercial airplanes is leaving, the company said on Tuesday. He is the most senior official to depart as the airline maker struggles to contain the crisis following the crashes of two 737 Max jets that killed 346 people.

The executive, Kevin McAllister, had been at the center of the company’s efforts to fix the automated system that contributed to the two crashes and return the plane to service. This month, The New York Times reported that he was under scrutiny inside the company for his poor handling of customer relationships and his management of the commercial division, which is Boeing’s largest business.

Stanley A. Deal, the head of global services for Boeing, will replace Mr. McAllister.

His departure adds a new element of volatility to the biggest crisis in the company’s 103-year-history. The Max jets have been grounded since March, costing Boeing at least $8 billion and disrupting the global aviation industry.

“We’re grateful to Kevin for his dedicated and tireless service to Boeing, its customers and its communities during a challenging time, and for his commitment to support this transition,” the company’s chief executive, Dennis A. Muilenburg, said in a statement.

The news about Mr. McAllister comes days after messages became public that suggested a pilot working on the Max had voiced concerns about the automated system in 2016, months before the Federal Aviation Administration certified the plane. That system, known as MCAS, was found to have played a role in the accidents.

Boeing 737 Max: What’s Happened After the 2 Deadly Crashes

Boeing remains under intense scrutiny nearly one year after the first Max jet was involved in a fatal accident.

Those messages undermined Boeing’s long-held position that it had no indication that the Max was unsafe until the crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia last October and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March.

Since the Max’s grounding shortly after the second crash, airlines have canceled thousands of flights and lost hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

The Max’s return to service has been delayed multiple times in recent months as Boeing and global regulators have uncovered new problems with the plane. Airlines do not expect the plane to fly again until next year.

Boeing has said that if the delays persist much longer, it may be forced to halt production of the Max, a drastic step that would disrupt Boeing’s enormous manufacturing work force and its vast network of suppliers.

Boeing is facing multiple investigations and lawsuits related to the crashes, including a criminal investigation being led by the Department of Justice. Boeing is scheduled to report quarterly earnings on Wednesday, and Mr. Muilenburg is preparing to testify before Congress next week.

The commercial division is dealing with problems beyond the Max. They include claims of shoddy production at Boeing’s plant in Charleston, S.C.; cracking on the 737 NG, the Max’s predecessor; and the discovery of foreign objects inside the KC-46 tanker, a military aircraft that the group builds.

Top Army modernization priorities are ‘on track,’ says Army Vice Chief of Staff

Warrior Maven Interview – Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Joseph Martin

“—-A 1986 graduate of West Point, Martin deployed to Iraq five times including stints as a company commander during Operation Desert Storm, as a battalion and brigade commander during Iraqi Freedom and he commanded the famed 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kansas. Martin also served as the commander of the Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command during the pivotal Battle of Mosul, a major multi-national offensive that helped the Iraqi government retake control of the Iraqi city from ISIS forces—-” From an Army ReportMARTIN ARMY BIO HERE

Warrior & Martin — Q&A

Warrior: There is a lot of discussion about the Army’s Top 6 Modernization priorities:…Long Range Precision Fires, Next Generation Combat Vehicles, Future Vertical Lift, Network, Air and Missile Defense, and Soldier Lethality…. How are they progressing and what sticks out in your mind?

Martin: All the modernization priorities are doing very well. We’re seeing the progress that we need to right now. We’ve got a lot of work to do. We need to continue to have consistent funding; without consistent funding, requirements can be requirements, but they’ll never turn into material that we develop. So, we’ll continue to work with Congress and everyone who is involved to make sure that we have consistent funding over time.

Warrior: Is there an example of the kind of new technology consistent Congressional funding can provide?

Martin: We are very excited about the progress we’ve made on the programs that we have anticipated we would have completed at this time. The Enhanced Night Vision Goggles B (ENVG-B), that was a great idea and… 2 years later, we actually fielded something to a brigade, 2nd Brigade of First Infantry Division. We will have other successes like that if we have consistent funding. We are on the verge of changing the momentum…right now, it’s an uphill fight–building requirements and having dialogues between material developers and requirements developers. We’re pushing the rock uphill. We get that over the top of the hill, these programs are going to take on a life of their own and we’re going to be very very successful.

Warrior: How is the number one priority progressing – Long-Range Precision Fires – as there is a program underway building prototypes and preparing for live fire?

Martin: We have many different experiments that are going on for long-range precision fires, but, in essence, I guess the tagline is this–”we want to make artillery great again.” The way we’re going to do that is we’re going to increase the capability of our cannons, we’re going to increase the capabilities of our rocket forces and we’re going to change the dynamics necessary to compete in the future on the multi-domain battlefield.

From the Army Report

“—Martin also served as the commander of the Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command during the pivotal Battle of Mosul, a major multi-national offensive that helped the Iraqi government retake control of the Iraqi city from ISIS forces.–”

************

Warrior: What are your thoughts on the current strategic shift to great power competition and all the discussion about Russian and Chinese threats?

Martin: There are many things that change. I go back, Kris, when you and I were younger, and the Army was coming out of the Vietnam era. And, during that time period, while we were focused on Vietnam, the Soviets were focused on modernizing equipment, changing their doctrine, changing their disposition…and, the next thing you knew, we looked at what we were doing in Europe and understood we had to change some things.

Warrior: How has this strategic perspective informed your current view of Army modernization?

Martin: So, a huge amount of energy went into, changing our doctrine and creating the Big 5 as all of us remember…things like the tank, the Bradley, the Apache, the Blackhawk helicopter…but, we also created the combat training centers, which changed the Army forever. You saw that fully expressed in Desert Storm and beyond that. We’ve got equipment platforms that were born in that era that are over 40-years-old now, and we’ve got to replace them, so while we’ve been busy focusing on the Middle East, our adversaries in China and Russia have been working on capabilities to deny our capabilities. So, what we’re doing is we’re modernizing the Army and changing our doctrine to multi-domain operations, and we’re taking a hard look at how we’re organized across the Army to make sure that we’re appropriately structured for, equipped with and trained to succeed and dominate in that environment.

Warrior: What are your thoughts on the future of heavy armor? When will we truly see a next-generation tank? What will it look like?

Martin: As we look at the future of the mechanized fleet, the armored fleet, what we want to do is we want to take a look at what’s the right platform or platforms to replace our Bradleys and our tanks. So, we’re looking at things like optionally-manned vehicles–think about a vehicle that could be manned or could be robotic and could be controlled from elsewhere, could operate autonomously or not autonomously. We’re looking at new mobile firepower capabilities, we’re looking at leveraging the technology that’s available in the metallurgical development field so that we can have the lightest vehicle possible, but also the most survival vehicle as possible.

Warrior: Will advances in AI, lightweight composites, long-range sensors and unmanned systems remove the need for some armor?

Martin: We’re also taking a hard look at the firepower these vehicles have to determine which is the optimal firepower for us to be able to counter and dominate our adversary’s capabilities. So, there’s going to be a need for a mechanized, or armored, vehicle in the future, it’s just what exactly that looks like. So, the next generation combat vehicle is focused principally on that. We’ve got a great team there. They’re looking at the requirements, they’re starting to work to prototype equipment in the future, and that’s going to allow us to arrive at the appropriate solution, just like we did with the Abrams tank back in the mid 70’s.

Ukraine Envoy Testifies Trump Linked Military Aid to Investigations, Lawmaker Says

Westlake Legal Group 22dc-impeach1-promo-facebookJumbo-v3 Ukraine Envoy Testifies Trump Linked Military Aid to Investigations, Lawmaker Says Zelensky, Volodymyr United States Politics and Government United States International Relations United States Ukraine Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry Taylor, William B Jr Sondland, Gordon D (1957- ) impeachment Biden, Joseph R Jr

WASHINGTON — William B. Taylor Jr., the United States’ top diplomat in Ukraine, told impeachment investigators privately on Tuesday that President Trump held up security aid for the country and refused a White House meeting with Ukraine’s leader until he agreed to investigate Mr. Trump’s political rivals.

The testimony drew what one lawmaker described as a “direct line” between American foreign policy and his own political goals.

In testimony that Democrats in attendance called the most damaging account yet for the president, Mr. Taylor provided an “excruciatingly detailed” opening statement that described the quid-pro-quo pressure campaign that Mr. Trump and his allies have been denying.

Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida, who sat in on the deposition as a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said that Mr. Taylor relied in part on detailed “notes to the file” that he had made as he watched the pressure campaign unfold. His testimony shed new light on the circumstances around a previously revealed text message in which Mr. Taylor wrote to colleagues that he thought it was “crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.”

On Tuesday, Mr. Taylor directly addressed accusations surrounding Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, and Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company that employed Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., one of the leading Democratic candidates for president.

He “drew a very direct line in the series of events he described between President Trump’s decision to withhold funds and refuse a meeting with Zelensky unless there was a public pronouncement by him of investigations of Burisma and the so-called 2016 election conspiracy theories,” Ms. Wasserman Schultz said.

The intelligence whistle-blower’s complaint that prompted the impeachment inquiry said that Mr. Trump’s effort to pressure Mr. Zelensky to open an investigation of Burisma was part of a concerted effort to use the power of his office to enlist foreign help in the 2020 election. Mr. Taylor was the latest in a string of career diplomats and current and former administration officials who have defied a White House blockade of the impeachment inquiry and submitted to closed-door depositions with investigators digging into whether Mr. Trump abused his power to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political adversaries.

The president sought to discredit the inquiry with attention-grabbing rhetoric early Tuesday as Mr. Taylor made his way to Capitol Hill to testify, comparing the impeachment investigation against him to a “lynching.”

His comment on Twitter drew bipartisan outrage in public as the ambassador made his case behind closed doors.

Ms. Wasserman Schultz said that in addition to referencing his notes, Mr. Taylor “had very specific recall of things,” including what she said were “meetings, phone calls, what was said.”

Several Democrats who participated in Mr. Taylor’s questioning described his testimony as stunning. Representative Ted Lieu, a California Democrat, shook his head after exiting the deposition, saying “what he said was incredibly damning to the president of the United States.”

Ms. Wasserman Schultz called it “one of the most disturbing days” she has had in Congress, and added: “I have not seen a more credible witness than this.”

Republicans accused Democrats of exaggerating, but they declined to share details of the testimony.

“I don’t know that any of us, if we are being intellectually honest, are hearing revelations that we were not aware of,” said Representative Mark Meadows, Republican of North Carolina. “The bottom line is no one has yet to make the case for why the aid was withheld or even if the Ukrainians knew about it.”

Still, by Democrats’ account, Mr. Taylor’s testimony provided the most extensive picture yet of the scope of the president’s effort to pressure Ukraine and the players who were involved in the effort on Mr. Trump’s behalf.

“It’s like if you had a big, 1,000-piece puzzle on a table,” Ms. Wasserman Schultz said. “This fills in a lot of pieces of the puzzle.”

Mr. Taylor became a star witness in the Democratic impeachment probe after a colleague, Kurt D. Volker, the special envoy to Ukraine, revealed texts they exchanged. In some of the text chains, as Mr. Taylor expressed his concerns about an apparent quid pro quo, Gordon D. Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, sought to take the conversation offline, telling Mr. Taylor to “call me.”

During his testimony on Tuesday, Ms. Wasserman Schultz said, Mr. Taylor provided new context for and details about the exchanges with Mr. Sondland, including a phone call that occurred after the texts.

In his lengthy opening statement and in questioning afterward, Mr. Taylor laid out a meticulous timeline of events during his time in the administration, according to several members of Congress and a person familiar with his testimony.

Mr. Taylor’s habit of keeping notes throughout his tenure has given the inquiry a boost, allowing him to recreate crucial conversations and moments even as the administration seeks to block Congress from reviewing documents related to its dealings with Ukraine.

Mr. Taylor has shared his notes with the State Department but has not produced copies of them for lawmakers conducting the impeachment inquiry, a person familiar with his testimony said.

The State Department objected to Mr. Taylor’s appearance before the committee, according to an official working on the impeachment inquiry. In response, the House Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena Tuesday morning to compel his testimony, and Mr. Taylor complied, according to the official.

Lori Loughlin, more parents face new bribery charge in college admissions scandal

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Lori Loughlin, more parents face new bribery charge in college admissions scandal

BOSTON — Federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged 11 parents and seven others who continue to maintain their innocence in the college admissions scandal with new crimes that could involve potentially harsher sentences.

Among the parents hit with the new charge is actress Lori Loughlin and husband fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, who are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters classified as crew recruits to get them admitted into the University of Southern California.

The moves come after four parents pleaded guilty in Boston federal court Monday, choosing to cave rather than face an additional bribery charge that prosecutors threatened they would bring. 

In addition, prosecutors brought new fraud conspiracy charges against seven university officials and others, including coaches, who have pleaded not guilty to crimes. 

More: Third parent in 24 hours caves in college admissions scandal, agrees to plead guilty

The new charge for parents — conspiracy to commit federal program bribery — is outlined in a superseding indictment filed in Boston federal court. The charges add to the fraud and money laundering charges that the parents already face for paying Rick Singer, the mastermind of a nationwide college admissions scandal.

The new charges continue the pressure from prosecutors that has accelerated against parents and coaches since the Justice Department announced the “Varsity Blues” scandal in Mach.

“Today’s charges are the result of ongoing investigation in the nationwide college admissions case,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in a statement. “Our goal from the beginning has been to hold the defendants fully accountable for corrupting the college admissions process through cheating, bribery and fraud. 

The federal programs bribery statute involves theft or bribery from entities that receive at least $10,000 in federal funding. Prosecutors argue the 11 parents conspired to commit federal program bribery by bribing employees of USC to facilitate entry as fake athletic recruits. 

Other parents facing the new charge are Gamal Abdelaziz, Diane Blake, Todd Blake, Elisabeth Kimmell, William McGlashan, Jr., Marci Palatella, John Wilson, Homayoun Zadeh, and Robert Zangrillo.

The four parents who pleaded guilty Monday —  Douglas Hodge, Michelle Janavs and Manuel and Elizabeth Henriquez — told a judge they were promised no new additional charges would come their way if they pleaded guilty.

“If the court accepts my plea, the government has promised not to seek or bring additional charges against me,” Manuel Henriquez, founder and CEO of the venture capital firm Hercules Capital, said prior to pleading guilty.

Although nine of 10 parents have received prison, U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani has rejected the government’s push to use the amount of bribes paid to Singer to factor into sentencing.

In an interview that resonated with many moms, Meghan spoke openly with ITV News at Ten anchor Tom Bradby about the challenges she faces as a new mother.

“Look, any woman, especially when they are pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging,” she told the journalist. “And then when you have a newborn — you know… especially as a woman, it’s a lot. So you add [media attention] on top of just trying to be a new mum or trying to be a newlywed…” 

Meghan also thanked Bradby for his question concerning her health. 

“Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m OK. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes,” she added.

Christian comedian coming to Netflix: ‘I Ain’t Prayin’ for that’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6032186626001_6032185537001-vs Christian comedian coming to Netflix: 'I Ain't Prayin' for that' fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/organization/netflix fox-news/faith-values/faith fox news fnc/entertainment fnc e54340ee-c530-5f24-a9d3-187efd425812 Caleb Parke article

John Crist might’ve been fired from Chick-fil-A but the comedian just got picked up by Netflix.

The Christian comedian made the announcement on social media Tuesday that his comedy special will be coming out on the popular streaming platform Thanksgiving day, offering three alternatives to “Netflix and chill” to his fans.

CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN JOHN CRIST GOT FIRED FROM CHICK-FIL-A FOR DOING THIS

Crist offered “Netflix and kill your nieces and nephews” who won’t want to watch the special, “Netflix and treadmill” to “work off a couple pounds,” or “Netflix and get grilled by your family for all your questionable career and relationship and financial choices throughout the year,” which he says will probably be what he will be doing Nov. 28.

The home-schooled son of a pastor-turned-mayor is one of eight children and he likes to say he sells out venues without selling out his values. He wants to change people’s thoughts using comedy, he says.

“I think that’s what comedy is, in a lot of ways; is you look around at society and the way things go, and you just don’t like it,” Crist told “Fox & Friends’ Ainsley Earhardt. “You’re just like, ‘I don’t like how this sits,’ and you try to come up with things and a lot of times people are like…’That is so true!'”

‘VEGGIETALES’ CREATOR PHIL VISCHER SAYS SHOW’S COMEBACK HAS ‘CLASSIC’ FEEL WITH NEW BIBLE STORIES

For the 35-year-old comedian, who has shared the stage with Larry the Cable Guy, the fact that people see truth in his jokes is the highest compliment.

“My first job was at Chick-fil-A. I got fired,” Crist said.

Steve Doocy asked: “How do you get fired at Chick-fil-A?”

“It’s part of my testimony now,” Crist joked. “Actually, I had to, I was stirring up the lemonade and I didn’t have the stirrer so I used my hand.”

Doocy told him, “I’d fire you, too.”

Crist joins other comedians like Dave Chappelle on Netflix, who took on the “cancel culture” in his “Sticks & Stones” special.
