Trump Was Right: City Council Offices, Headed by San Juan Mayor, Have Been Raided by the FBI





FBI agents raided a building Tuesday in Puerto Rico’s capital city of San Juan that is home to municipal offices associated with the administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, a vocal political opponent of President Trump’s.

 Remember her? This is the same bitch who criticized Trump over his handling of Hurricane Maria.

'People died because Donald Trump was negligent' says San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz 


 Breastfeeding at the border??? 

Listen to this skank spew a bunch of crap which bypasses her own dismal failure concerning Hurricane Maria.

And this:



-----------------------------



"More than 10" but "less than 50" agents based on the Caribbean island arrived at the Municipal Tower at 9 a.m. ET and were still conducting the operation as of 2:30 p.m. when FBI spokesman for the U.S. territory, Carlos Osorio, spoke by phone with the Washington Examiner in the afternoon Tuesday. Osorio described the operation as "pretty big." 

Agents were seen entering the Municipal Tower with dozens of empty boxes. The federal agents deployed to the third, fourth, 14th, and 15th floors of the 16-floor building, Osorio said. They were looking for any paper and electronic documents related to "corruption" inside the city administration's purchasing and contracting departments. 

The raid comes a month after Trump tweeted a quote from Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs that said the U.S. territory’s government was "corrupt" while fuming over the raised death toll count in Puerto Rico from last year's Hurricane Maria. 

"We have received allegations that they have been fixing contracts, that they are falsifying documents - these having to do with federal funds because if not, we would not have any jurisdiction," Osorio said. "They’re not directed at the mayor, but against people that work at the tower." 

The allegations also include tampering with purchase orders and favoritism toward certain vendors. 

Once all of the information is compiled and removed from the building, the FBI will go through the documents and determine if the allegations a former city worker made against others. The agents that participated in the Tuesday raid were from the agency's field office in Puerto Rico and regional task force. 

Cruz’s office is located in city hall in a separate building from the one that was the focus of the federal agency’s attention Tuesday. 

Cruz issued a statement on Twitter Tuesday morning saying all parties should cooperate with one another. 

Trump and Cruz battled each other on Twitter late last year and into 2018 after the mayor alleged Trump was not doing enough to help the island after Hurricane Maria struck last September. 

Earlier this year, the Justice Department announced the arrest of former Puerto Rican Mayor Nazario-Quiñones for corruption.

Just what you would expect from the left



Threatening letter with alleged 'ricin' sent to Sen. Susan Collins' Maine home




A hazardous materials team was called to the Bangor, Maine home of Sen. Susan Collins Monday after a threatening letter containing what its author said was the poison ricin was delivered there.

Collins spokesperson Annie Clark said on Twitter that Collins' husband, Tom Daffron, the couple's dog and parts of the home were quarantined while the letter was analyzed. Clark added that the home was cleared and the couple "will be able to remain at home tonight."



Outside the house, a Bangor Daily News photographer captured an image of a person in a hazmat suit holding an envelope in a plastic bag. Later, the FBI arrived, along with vans carrying people in military uniforms, the newspaper reported.

Law enforcement officials were analyzing the contents of the letter and the investigation into its origins was ongoing Monday night. An FBI spokeswoman told The Associated Press that preliminary tests on the envelope indicated there was no threat to the public.

It was unclear who sent the letter and why. But critics have hurled threats at Collins recently over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court amid historic allegations of sexual misconduct against the federal judge.




Clark tweeted late Monday night that the envelope incident was "the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff."

Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, who voted against Kavanaugh, came to his fellow senator's defense.

"Regardless of any political differences, @SenatorCollins, her family, and her staff should not have to be subjected to these threats — there's just no place for it in our discourse," he tweeted.




In a statement, Collins and Daffron said they were "very grateful for the immediate and professional assistance that we received" from the authorities.

"We are also truly appreciative of the many well wishes that we received today," the couple added. "Our friends and neighbors have been incredibly kind and have even offered to open their homes to us. We feel blessed to live in such a supportive community."

Collins signaled that she would vote for Kavanaugh in a dramatic Senate floor speech on Sept. 28. The judge was confirmed the following day by a 50-48 vote.

But in the wake of Collins’ support, activists lashed out against her and her fellow Senate colleagues who voted to confirm Kavanaugh.

“Senator Susan Collins is the mother & grandmother of white women in America who gave us a Donald Trump presidency. The 53%,” tweeted Linda Sarsour, a far-left activist and a leader of the Women’s March that branded Collins a “rape apologist” after the speech. “She is a disgrace & her legacy will be that she was a traitor to women and marginalized communities. History will not treat her kindly.”

“A white woman Senator is talking about presumption of innocence that is never offered to Black men in America. You are watching white supremacy live on the Senate Floor,” Sarsour said even before Collins finished her speech.


Kat Calvin, the founder of anti-voter ID group “Spread the Vote” that claims to be non-partisan, urges people to publicly harass Collins over her voting decision.

“Never let Collins have a moment of peace in public again,” she wrote.

An anti-Collins fundraiser page raised nearly $3 million in pledges by the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote, with the money going to her future opponent.

“If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020,” the fund’s organizers wrote. “We will get you out of office.”

Judge tosses Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump and orders her to pay the president’s legal fees











In my mind, the question remains...why did he pay her $130,000?

The next question? After he paid her $130,000 to remain silent about the alleged affair what penalty does she incur for violating the non-disclosure agreement?

---------------------------



Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Trump was tossed out Monday — with a federal judge ordering the porn star to pay the president’s legal fees, according to court records.

The case stemmed from a Trump tweet that called Daniels, who claims she had an affair with him, “a total con job.” Trump has denied the affair.

Judge S. James Otero, a US District Court judge in Los Angeles, said Monday the comments made in the president’s tweet appeared to be an opinion protected by the First Amendment.

“The tweet in question constitutes ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ normally associated with politics and public discourse in the U.S.,” the ruling reads. “The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement.”

The president’s attorney Charles J. Harder called the ruling a “victory” in a statement to Fox News. The amount Daniels needs to pay will be decided at a later date, he said.

“No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” the statement said.

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said he planned to appeal the dismissal.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claimed she was approached in 2011 by a man who threatened her to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. Avenatti released a sketch of the supposed suspect on April 17.

The next day, the president tweeted: “A sketch about a nonexistent man. A total con job playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

In the suit, Daniels, 39, claimed she received death threats and had to hire bodyguards following the tweet. By sending the tweet, “Mr. Trump used his national and international audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford,” the suit claimed.

But Monday’s ruling disagreed.

Trump made a “one-off rhetorical comment, not a sustained attack on the veracity of [Daniels’] claim,” the ruling states.

Judge Otero also agreed with Trump’s attorneys that Daniels hadn’t proven the president acted with malice when sending the tweet.

Cherokee Nation responds to Senator Warren, says DNA test 'useless to determine tribal citizenship'







She hasn't got the brains God gave a chicken. No one in their right mind would have gone public with this feeble DNA evidence. She has Native-American ancestry... “in the range of 6-10 generations ago?” She's not less than 1/1024th Native American and she claims to be a Native American Indian? Give me a break.




Pocahontas proved a bigger fool than I thought and actually made things worse for herself. She's about as Cherokee as Jeep.



-----------------------



Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren took the rare step Monday of releasing her DNA test results examining her possible Native American ancestry, tries to eliminate critics' line of attack against her.

The Cherokee Nation responded to the results of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's DNA test on Monday, arguing that “a DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship.” The response came after the Democratic senator revealed that, based on tests, she has Native-American ancestry “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”

"Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America," Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a press release.

"Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation," Hoskin continued. "Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."


Warren took the rare step of sharing DNA test results examining her long-challenged Native-American bloodline earlier Monday. According to the analysis, as first reported by The Boston Globe, “the vast majority” of Warren’s family tree is European and there is “strong evidence” she has Native-American ancestry - albeit anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1,024.


Warren, who is mulling a 2020 presidential run, repeatedly has been mocked by President Trump for claiming Native American heritage. The president has called her "Pocahontas" while criticizing her on the campaign trail.

In an apparent response to those jabs, Warren produced a video for her Senate re-election campaign playing up the results of her latest DNA test.

In it, Warren said: “The president likes to call my mom a liar. What do the facts say?”

Stanford University Professor Carlos D. Bustamante, who did the analysis, replied: “The facts suggest that you absolutely have Native American ancestry in your pedigree.”

Trump once offered to donate $1 million to a charity of Warren's choice if she took a DNA test as part of a debate challenge. But on Monday, while touring Hurricane Michael damage along the Gulf Coast, the president said he would donate only "if I can test her personally."

He added, "That will not be something I will enjoy doing either."

"I won't sit quietly for @realDonaldTrump's racism, so I took a test," Warren later tweeted. "But DNA & family history has nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined only – only – by Tribal Nations. I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate."



Really???

So how do you explain this comment...

“My mom and dad were very much in love with each other and they wanted to get married and my father’s parents said absolutely not. You can’t marry her because she’s part Cherokee and she’s part, Delaware. And um, after fighting it as long as they could, my parents went off, they eloped.”



I want her to run against Trump sooo bad I'd almost send her a campaign check.
