    Disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes closed her fraud trial testimony by blaming any misleading comments she'd made to investors on what company experts had told her.    Holmes, 37, she spent her final day on the stand trying to drive home the argument that she didn't intend to mislead investors and instead relied on expert feedback to glean information on company prospects. Explaining why she'd made false statements she claimed were just honest mistakes, Holmes told jurors: 'I wanted to convey the impact.  'I wanted to talk about what this company could do a year from now, five years from now, 10 years from now. They weren’t interested in today or tomorrow or next month — they were interested in what kind of change we could make.'  Echoing that claim, defense lawyer Lance Wade added: 'Theranos didn’t see mistakes as crimes. They saw them as part of the path to success.' Disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes claimed during her final day of testimony on December 8 that the deceiving comments she made about the company were based on feedback from experts...
    A witness under the pseudonym 'Kate' has taken the stand in Day Six of Ghislaine Maxwell's high-profile sex trafficking trial.  Under questioning from the prosecution, Kate claimed Monday that she was 17 when she was introduced to Maxwell by a boyfriend in Paris.  Kate is not one of the four women in Maxwell's case, but has been brought in as a prosecution witness.   She claimed Maxwell invited her to her townhouse where Jeffrey Epstein was wearing a robe. Maxwell told her Epstein's massage therapist had canceled and asked if she could fill in.  Kate claimed Epstein took off his robe to reveal his naked body and Maxwell handed her massage oil and closed the door. Kate said that Epstein initiated sexual contact with her.  After the massage, Kate claimed Maxwell asked 'How did it go? Did you have fun? You're such a good girl.' 'She sounded really pleased, and I was pleased that she was pleased,' Kate said.   'Later Maxwell told me to find someone to give Epstein a b***job,' Kate claimed, and said Maxwell told her he needed to...
    Philip Larkin famously wrote that sexual intercourse began in 1963, ‘between the end of the Chatterley ban and the Beatles’ first LP’. It was also when the intimate foibles of an aristocratic ruling class were first exposed to the glare of the mass media and a public ravenous for details. It was the year of Lord Denning’s scathing report on the Profumo affair, in which His Lordship mused on depravity in high places. And 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery, a photograph of a ‘headless man’ and a sexual act too shocking to be described in the newspapers of the day. Now the BBC is set to broadcast a major new dramatisation of the case, starring Claire Foy – who has previously portrayed the Queen in the Netflix series, The Crown – as Margaret, Duchess of Argyll. 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery,...

I think he was wanting to flee and he realized that you know he was not going to get away,' George McMichael, 65, told police following the shooting, according to a police body camera transcript read aloud in court. Witness testimony from Glynn County Detective Roderic Nohilly, who interviewed the suspect at police headquarters soon after the shooting, also revealed that McMichael alleged Arbery could've outrun his son, Travis McMichael, 35 - who is accused of firing the shots that killed the jogger - despite the claims that they had him trapped.

'He was much faster than Travis would ever be,' McMichael told the...
    Elizabeth Holmes told the FBI during taped 2017 depositions that she was the ‘ultimate decision maker,’ at her doomed startup Theranos, despite claiming during her high-profile fraud trial that her ex-partner Ramesh ‘Sunny’ Balwani masterminded the crime and manipulated her into participating.

    NurPhoto/Getty The feds say an alleged Capitol rioter should be re-arrested after violating his release conditions. A judge had ordered Thomas Robertson not to have any weapons pending trial. Prosecutors say he bought 34 guns, and had a partly built pipe bomb at his house.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

Thomas Robertson, ex-officer of the Rocky Mount Police Department in Virginia, is one of the 545 people that have been arrested and charged in connection to the January 6 insurrection so far.

But just four days after...
    The prosecution’s closing argument in the George Floyd trial asked the jury to believe their eyes when they saw the video of Floyd’s death, but when it comes to the media—it seems that they can’t do the same. 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was shot by police Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio, while she was charging another girl with a knife. The shooting occurred just minutes before the judge announced the verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, who was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter for George Floyd’s death. National media was quick to report that Bryant was “unarmed” based on Bryant’s family member saying that she dropped the knife before police shot her, however, body camera footage proved that false a few hours later. The footage shows Bryant pushing one woman onto the sidewalk before charging another girl and swinging at her with a knife. But the quote about Bryant dropping the knife was still reported by the Daily Beast and the Washington Post before spreading widely on Twitter. CNN Legal Analyst Areva Martin said Tuesday night...

    Jeffrey Epstein repeatedly raped a Florida real estate agent with the help of Ghislaine Maxwell, in front of her eight-year-old son, and then threatened to feed her to alligators when she said she would report the crime, according to a new lawsuit. The Turkish-born woman was 26 at the time that the attacks began, in January 2008. They continued for at least five months, culminating in Epstein forcing the woman to undergo vaginal surgery to make her appear as a virgin. The surgery, she said, was carried out 'in a wealthy person's home by a man with a Russian accent' and left her mutilated and permanently damaged.

    Congressman Jamie Raskin (D- MD) got emotional on Tuesday as he delivered closing remarks for the start of the Donald Trump impeachment trial. The Capitol riots took place on January 6th, one day after Raskin buried his son Tommy. He told senators that his daughter and son-in-law were with him at the Capitol, Raskin explained, “because they wanted to be together with me in the middle of a devastating week for our family.” Raskin said they asked him if it would be safe, citing Trump’s calls for his supporters to gather in DC, and he said he responded to them, “Of course it should be safe, it’s the Capitol.” On January 6th, when they were at the Capitol, Raskin said by the time they learned about what was going on, they were in an office and “I couldn’t get out there to be with them.” “All around me people were calling their wives and their husbands, their loved ones, to say goodbye.” Raskin even said members of Congress “removed their congressional pins so they wouldn’t be identified by the mob...
    Several Republican lawmakers involved in some way with the rally ahead of the storming of the Capitol earlier this month sought with Donald Trump for a pardon – but the president's legal advisors warned against granting the pleas. Two people familiar with the plans told CNN that Trump decided not to grant the pardons to lawmakers before he leaves office Wednesday. He also decided Saturday night, according to sources, that he would not pardon himself or his family members.

    BERLIN (AP) — A 27-year-old German man went on trial Monday over the killing of six members of his family earlier this year, telling a court that he was motivated by hatred for his mother. Prosecutors accuse the defendant, identified by German media only as Adrian S. due to privacy restrictions, of firing 30 shots during a family gathering in the southwestern town of Rot am See, killing his parents, half-siblings, uncle and aunt. Two other people were seriously wounded in the shooting. German news agency dpa reported that S. told the regional court in Ellwangen he had wanted to take revenge on his mother.
