Disgraced television lawyer Michael Avenatti ― who was arrested Monday for a series of alleged financial crimes ― made dozens of appearances on CNN and MSNBC in a 64-day period last year, turning the anti-Trump personality into a “resistance” folk hero, according to a report. U.S. prosecutors have charged Avenatti with extortion and bank and wire fraud. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles said Avenatti was arrested Monday in New York. Spokesman Ciaran McEvoy said the lawyer best known for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump faces federal charges in New York and California.

Prosecutors say he demanded that the apparel company give him $20 million.According to the Washington Free Beacon, Avenatti appeared on CNN and MSNBC between March 7th and May 10th, 2018, at least 65 times and 43 … [Read more...] about Flashback: Michael Avenatti Made 108 Appearances on CNN, MSNBC in Two-Month Period

By Jonathan Ng | [email protected] | Boston HeraldMarch 2, 2019 at 10:12 pm Sen. Bernie Sanders kicked off his 2020 presidential bid Saturday with a rally in New York, tying his working-class background to his populist agenda and calling President Trump, “the most dangerous president in modern American history.” Sanders announced last month in a video that he would launch a second White House run, joining an already crowded and expanding Democratic field. In less than a week, 360,000 supporters had already raised $10 million to Sanders’ campaign war chest. In his Brooklyn rally, the presidential hopeful touted his progressive bona fides, calling for a “Medicare for all” single-payer health care program, a $15 minimum wage, tuition-free public colleges and tackling climate change. Sanders took the opportunity to bash the president’s background. “I did not have a father who gave me millions of dollars to build luxury skyscrapers, casinos and … [Read more...] about Sanders touts background, digs at Trump in Brooklyn 2020 campaign kickoff
David Choi, provided by Published 9:26 pm PST, Monday, February 11, 2019 Evan Vucci/AP In recent weeks, California and its National Guard have begun signaling its disagreement with President Donald Trump on two contentious issues: the US-Mexico border and transgender service members.

Around 110 troops at the US-Mexico border will be redeployed for "fire prevention and fire suppression efforts" as state … [Read more...] about ‘This is our answer to the White House’: California is bucking Trump’s controversial policies in an unprecedented way
Bob Bryan, provided by Published 5:47 am PST, Thursday, December 13, 2018 Mark Wilson/Getty Images Trump administration officials have been trying to treat the arrest of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou and the US-China trade talks as two separate issues. Trump undermined that argument on Tuesday by suggesting Meng could be used as a bargaining chip in the trade talks. "I would certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary," Trump told Reuters. President Donald Trump has once again created a potential headache for his economic team in talks with China and thrown a wrench into a dayslong effort to keep negotiations on track. Since Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou — the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei — Trump's economic team has taken pains to separate the issue from the ongoing trade negotiations. But Trump contradicted those efforts during an interview with Reuters on Tuesday. "If I think it's good for what will be … [Read more...] about Trump’s trade team spent days building a strategy to deal with the Huawei CFO arrest. Then Trump blew it up in a single interview.
