    Former U.S. President Donald Trump gives the keynote address at the Faith & Freedom Coalition during their annual "Road To Majority Policy Conference" at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center June 17, 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee. Trump's appearance comes on the heels of the third public hearing by the House committee investigating the attack on our U.S. Capitol.Seth Herald | Getty Images Attorneys for Donald Trump have repeatedly failed to show that the former president declassified government records that were taken from his Florida home as part of a criminal investigation, the Department of Justice told a federal appeals court. The Justice Department made that argument late Tuesday as it sought to resume its review of records marked classified that were seized from Trump's Palm Beach resort home Mar-a-Lago in an FBI raid last month. The DOJ's filing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit swung back at Trump's lawyers, who earlier Tuesday asked the court to preserve a ruling from a lower federal judge that blocked the government from examining the seized documents. Trump "again...

    The shooter responsible for killing Adriene Payne — a former college basketball star and briefly an Orlando Magic player — told deputies he shot Payne in self-defense, but a detective for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office determined he wasn’t justified in his actions, court records show. Lawrence Dority, 29, was arrested Monday on a first-degree murder warrant and taken to the Orange County Jail. He is being held without bail.

    A former Baltimore police officer who allegedly faked her death in Ukraine to avoid going to trial over false sex assault accusations toward a Pennsylvania officer, has been arrested yet again for retail theft,  authorities say. Oksana Olkesandrivna Brown, 47, of Dallastown, was previously sentenced to serve two years probation, 50 hours of community service, and was banned from the Shrewsbury Township Walmart after she was convicted of stealing $30 worth of merchandise in 2018, court records show. Brown claimed she was sexually assaulted by a Pennsylvania state trooper while the warrant to arrest her for her Walmart theft was being— but a dashcam captured the entire encounter, ultimately showing she had lied. Police charged her with filing a false report of an assault and unsworn falsification to authorities less than a month after her sentencing for theft. But while on probation she took out a life insurance policy and traveled to Ukraine, where he husband reported her dead of poisoning to the U.S. Department of State on Oct. 27, 2019, a death certificate was issued, and she was...
    (CNN)Planned Parenthood clinics in the five states neighboring Texas saw a nearly 800% increase in abortion patients from the Lone Star State after a six-week ban went into effect in September, the organization said Thursday. Colorado and Oklahoma clinics saw some of the biggest surges in Texas abortion seekers, the organization said. Between September 1 and December 31, 2021, abortion patients with Texas zip codes made up more than half the total number of patients at Oklahoma Planned Parenthood clinics, in what was a 2500% increase in Texas traffic to those facilities. Texas patients amounted to less than 10% in Oklahoma clinics the same time the year before.Medication abortion now makes up the majority of US abortions, study shows, as states push to restrict it"Oklahoma alone cannot begin to absorb the number of patients fleeing Texas for abortion care," Planned Parenthood-Great Plains medical director Iman Alsaden told reporters Thursday, while noting that Oklahoma lawmakers are considering a Texas-like ban themselves."Banning abortion doesn't stop people from needing abortion," Alsaden said.The new data -- which also included clinics in, New Mexico, Kansas...
    Federal authorities have been investigating Andrew Wiederhorn, chief executive of the company that owns the Fatburger and Johnny Rockets restaurant chains, and examining one of his family member’s actions as part of an inquiry into allegations of securities and wire fraud, money laundering and attempted tax evasion, court records show. During the probe, federal agents in December raided the Beverly Grove home of Wiederhorn’s son Thayer and daughter-in-law Brooke Wiederhorn, according to search warrant records filed in court. Brooke is not named in court records reviewed by The Times. She’s the oldest daughter of actress and erstwhile “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards, and her 2014 nuptials to Thayer were chronicled on the Bravo reality TV show. Agents hauled away phones, digital storage devices, tax documents and other records from the couple’s residence, according to court filings. Federal investigators also sought a judge’s permission to search the elder Wiederhorn’s Beverly Hills mansion, although court filings do not indicate whether that raid took place. They also monitored him walking his dogs by the property last year. In...
    MIAMI (AP) — A Colombian businessman linked to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was secretly signed up by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a cooperating source in 2018 and gave agents information about bribes he paid to Venezuelan officials, according to new court records unsealed Wednesday in the closely watched corruption case. Alex Saab forfeited nearly $10 million of his fortune as part of his cooperation agreement with the U.S., which included several meetings with U.S. law enforcement in his native Colombia and elsewhere. However, he was deactivated as a source after failing to meet a May 30, 2019, deadline to surrender himself. Two months later, he was indicted in Miami federal court on charges of siphoning off millions from state contracts to build affordable housing for Venezuela’s socialist government. The U.S. has described Saab as the main conduit for corruption in Venezuela, someone who reaped huge windfall profits from dodgy contracts to import food while millions in the South American nation starved. The Maduro government considers him a diplomat who was kidnapped while on a humanitarian mission made more urgent...
    The pressure to unearth records from Jan. 6, 2021, has ramped up on election subversion strategist John Eastman once again after a federal judge ordered him to produce emails to the Capitol attack probe faster and without skimping on details about his so-called privilege claims.  This latest order follows a previous one that instructed the conservative attorney to begin the records review and commence with the production of privilege logs itemizing whatever documents he wished to hide from the Jan. 6 Committee. Setting a range for emails from his tenure at Chapman University spanning from just Jan. 4 through Jan. 7, 2021, Eastman has complied over the last few weeks. But with the work he has shown, the committee has been forced to lodge objections on privileges claims associated with 130 documents from that time period. Those documents amount to 568 pages.  The Jan. 6 committee has expressed time and again that Eastman’s communications from just before and after the Capitol attack with White House officials, former President Trump, or other attorneys in Trump’s circle are a leading priority for investigators. U.S. District Judge David Carter, appointed by former President Bill Clinton, has so far...

    The gunman who killed five people in a shooting rampage across Denver and Lakewood pleaded guilty nearly a decade ago to threatening two co-workers with a gun, but those charges were dismissed after he completed probation and the case later was sealed. Denver police arrested Lyndon McLeod on Feb. 2, 2012, after two men who worked with him at a medical marijuana warehouse in Denver said McLeod intentionally bumped into them and then pointed a gun at them, according to McLeod’s arrest affidavit. The men said McLeod told them: “I know my rights! You pushed me and I can put one in you!” The men convinced McLeod to put his gun away and McLeod left, according to the affidavit. McLeod pleaded guilty to felony menacing in April 2012 and completed two years of probation as part of a deferred sentence. The charge was dismissed after he completed probation and in 2014 the case was sealed, blocking it from public view. A Denver District Court judge unsealed the case Jan. 14 after receiving petitions from news agencies. Colorado law allows the...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The man charged with murder and attempted murder in the St. Paul bar shooting last weekend has a long criminal history, and court records show 33-year-old Terry Brown should never have had a gun. It appears that at every turn Brown was given breaks by the system, breaks that allowed him to be free to go into the Seventh Street Truck bar Saturday night. READ MORE: Terry Brown, Charged In Deadly St. Paul Bar Shootings, Was Barred From Possessing A GunIn 2018, Brown was charged with a felony for violating a no-contact order in a domestic case. He had a long record, with felonies including a 2016 conviction for violating the same no-contact order. In the 2018 case, he twice missed court dates and warrants were issued. Yet when it came time for sentencing, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office asked for a downward departure, saying this was a man who was “particularly amenable to probation.” In the end, his sentence for the no-contact order was 180 days in the workhouse and five years of probation. Criminal defense...
    (CNN)The FBI has infiltrated a "Bible study" group in Virginia that after the January 6 riot had members discussing surveilling the US Capitol and their wish for secession from the US, and investigators closely followed one member's plans to build and test Molotov cocktails, according to recently unsealed court records. The startling new case, landing six months after the pro-Trump insurrection, adds to the more than 500 Capitol riot federal criminal cases already in court and fleshes out what's known about the Justice Department's understanding of the continued interests of right-wing extremists to allegedly interfere with the US government and discuss with each other how to do so. The new case highlights one group member's apparent interest in a second American civil war. The newly disclosed criminal case against Virginia man Fi Duong -- who also goes by "Monkey King" and "Jim," according to the court record -- arose after Duong interacted with undercover law enforcement officers several times on January 6 and into recent months, when the FBI ultimately gained access to his group in Virginia then accompanied him...
    California horse racing officials reportedly worked in secret to improperly exonerate embattled Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert and his Triple Crown-winning colt, Justify, after it tested positive for a banned substance in 2018. Confidential court records obtained by The Washington Post include emails, memorandums and other materials showing the California Horse Racing Board's efforts to circumvent the group's own rules — and in some cases, rewriting them — to benefit Baffert as Justify was becoming just the second horse ever to win the Triple Crown with an undefeated record. As was revealed by the New York Times in 2019, Justify tested positive for the banned substance scopolamine, an anti-nausea medication, which allegedly has performance-enhancing qualities. The failed drug test occurred in April of 2018 after Justify won the Santa Anita Derby, and had it been revealed at the time, the violation would have prevented the colt from running in the first leg of the Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby. California horse racing officials reportedly worked in secret to improperly exonerate embattled Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert and...
                      by Andrew Kerr  President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning, received legal immunity to testify in a 1993 criminal trial, court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show. The trial resulted in a 17 month prison sentence for tree spiking, a violent tactic used to prevent logging. Stone-Manning testified that she sent an anonymous and threatening letter to the Forest Service in 1989 on behalf of John P. Blount, who she identified as her former roommate and a member of her circle of friends, court documents show. The letter warned that a local forest in Idaho set to be logged had been sabotaged with tree spikes, according to the documents. “P.S. You bastards go in there anyway and a lot of people could get hurt,” the letter stated. Tree spiking, which The Washington Post and other news outlets have described as an “eco-terrorism” tactic, is a form of sabotage in which metal spikes are nailed into trees to make them unsafe to log. If gone unnoticed, tree spikes can...
    President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning, testified in federal court in 1993 that she sent a threatening letter to the Forest Service warning that a local forest had been sabotaged with tree spikes. Stone-Manning told a local news outlet in 1993 that she could have faced conspiracy charges had she not struck an immunity deal with a federal prosecutor in return for her testimony. Court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show that Stone-Manning testified that her friend and former roommate John Blount, who was found guilty and sentenced to 17 months in prison over the matter, asked her to send the letter to the Forest Service on his behalf.  Stone-Manning told a local news outlet that she mailed a copy of Blount’s letter that she typed using a rented typewriter “because my fingerprints were all over the original and I was scared.” Stone-Manning has provided differing accounts to the media and lawmakers of her involvement in the case in the years since her testimony.

    A legal battle between a private citizen and the ACLU of Washington Foundation has revealed that biologically male sexual predators are being housed in the state’s female prisons, it was announced by an advocacy group Wednesday. In March, the ACLU of Washington filed a lawsuit to prevent the public release of records pertaining to transgender inmates in the Washington prison system. Now, a judge has ruled in favor of the ACLU against private citizen Andrea Kelly, but key information was uncovered during the proceedings about biological male prisoners in female prisons. “Judge Rice’s decision in this case to prevent the release of records which prove sexual misconduct by men currently housed in women’s prisons sets a dangerous precedent. The state of Washington has failed to upload its legal obligations under the Public Records Act and, in doing so, denied citizens our ability to hold the government accountable for their violation of the human rights of female inmates,” said Women’s Liberation Front legal director Lauren Adams, who is representing Kelly in the case. Important case update! Judge’s ruling has confirmed reports...
    (CNN)The Justice Department was investigating threatening messages related to a parody Twitter account -- @NunesAlt -- that criticized Rep. Devin Nunes, in a previously unknown criminal investigation, according to federal court records made public on Monday.Twitter, in its fight to keep the user's information secret, suggested the subpoena may be part of a government attempt -- from either Nunes, a California Republican, or the Justice Department -- to unmask Nunes' critics and chill their speech. But the details of what and who were being investigated are scant and the court records don't show whether the investigation is over."In light of Congressman Nunes's repeated efforts to silence criticism against him, any complaint that gave rise to the Subpoena may be aimed at doing the same," lawyers for the social media company wrote to the federal judge overseeing a grand jury in March.Neither the Justice Department nor Nunes' office responded to CNN's requests for comment Monday.Read MoreThe Justice Department had subpoenaed Twitter in late November 2020 to try to learn the identity of the user behind the fake account @NunesAlt, according to...
    LIVERMORE — An Alameda County superior court judge issued a $50,000 arrest warrant after the defendant in a misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter case failed to show up in court, records show. The warrant was issued after Miguel Hernandez-Sanchez, 40, failed to show up for a March 30 court appearance before Judge Jason Clay. Hernandez-Sanchez faces charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving without a license, both misdemeanors, in the November 2019 crash that killed 62-year-old Thomas Roach of Discovery Bay. According to court records, police determined Roach was driving a motorcycle on South Vasco Road in Livermore when he was struck by a truck driven by Hernandez-Sanchez. Investigators found Hernandez-Sanchez to be the driver-at-fault and he was unable to provide a license or any identification, police said. Hernandez-Sanchez allegedly told officers at the scene he was working for a company in Texas and had only been living in California for six months. He gave police a home address in Livermore, authorities said. Clay granted the $50,000 arrest warrant, but turned down a prosecution request to double the dollar amount. That same week,...

    (CNN)Secret communications cited in court records are revealing just how aggressively federal prosecutors are working to understand the paramilitary extremists who played a role in the US Capitol insurrection.Two court filings Thursday in the Justice Department's efforts to keep in jail affiliates of the Oath Keepers, an extremist militant group, rely heavily on text messages and other communications between extremists.Investigators have now cited direct quotes from the walkie-talkie app Zello as paramilitants coached each other -- talking about "executing citizen's arrests" and "everything we f--king trained for" -- inside the Capitol. They've found a text message from an alleged organizer among the Oath Keepers discussing an idea to bring weapons into Washington, DC, on a boat crossing the Potomac River. And they've acknowledged finding planning materials, including bomb-making documents, in multiple defendants' cases. Justice Department says an Oath Keepers leader waited for Trumps direction before Capitol attackExtensive searches of homes, private messages and other data trails by investigators aren't unusual in criminal cases, though the number of arrests and criminal cases following the Capitol riots has become an almost unmatched...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The insurrectionist mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol at the president’s behest last week was overwhelmingly made up of longtime Trump supporters, including Republican Party officials, GOP political donors, far-right militants, white supremacists, and adherents of the QAnon myth that the government is secretly controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophile cannibals. Records show that some were heavily armed and included convicted criminals, such as a Florida man recently released from prison for attempted murder. The Associated Press reviewed social media posts, voter registrations, court files and other public records for more than 120 people either facing criminal charges related to the Jan. 6 unrest or who, going maskless amid the pandemic, were later identified through photographs and videos taken during the melee. The evidence gives lie to claims by right-wing pundits and Republican officials such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., that the violence was perpetrated by left-wing antifa thugs rather than supporters of the president. “If the reports are true,” Gaetz said on the House floor just hours after the attack, “some of the people who...
    Defendant David Correia, center, leaves federal court in New York, U.S., on Thursday, Oct. 17, 2019.Peter Foley | Bloomberg | Getty Images David Correia, a business partner of Rudy Giuliani's former associate Lev Parnas, is set to plead guilty in a case where both he and Parnas are charged with defrauding investors in a would-be company named "Fraud Guarantee, a court filing revealed. Both Correia and Parnas were slapped with a superseding indictment last month in Manhattan federal court that charged them with conspiring to commit wire fraud in connection with Fraud Guarantee, which was ostensibly supposed to offer fraud protection to customers. Correia and Parnas previously were charged in 2019, along with two other men, with conspiring to violate the law banning political donations by foreigners. A court filing on Wednesday said that Correia, who like Parnas has pleaded not guilty in the case, is scheduled to appear at a change of plea hearing on Thursday.

    Documents released in Michael Flynn’s ongoing court case on Thursday show that FBI employees expressed reservations about the bureau’s probe of the retired general.  One investigator called the probe a “nightmare,” according to internal FBI messages.  Another message shows an investigator saying they were “glad” the FBI planned to close the probe on Nov. 8, 2016.  In October 2016, an FBI analyst said that the bureau would face “tough questions” once documents from the investigation became public through the Freedom of Information Act.  FBI employees who worked on Crossfire Hurricane called the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn a “nightmare” and expressed relief when the bureau considered closing the probe in November 2016, according to messages released on Thursday. Flynn’s lawyers released the documents in a court filing in his federal criminal case on charges that he lied to the FBI. The messages show that some FBI employees questioned investigative steps that the bureau took in the investigation. The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation against him and three other Trump campaign advisers in August 2016 over their...
    NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (CBS) — A man has admitted to killing his own mother and wife inside the family’s Newtown Square home. Details were quiet about the double homicide case until now. What set the investigation into motion were frantic phone calls from the couple’s son and daughter who were vacationing in the Poconos. When Newtown Township Police arrived at 44 Rockwood Road, they found a man named Iqbal Singh at the door, covered in blood. “Next thing you know, they were bringing a man out, handcuffing him, and he was covered with blood on his chest,” neighbor Sue Davison said. Once police got inside, the body of Nasib Kaur was found on the floor of a downstairs bedroom, surrounded by a pool of blood. Her throat was slit — court papers say she was “obviously deceased.” A second woman, Jaspal Kaur, was also dead in an upstairs bathroom. Her throat was slit, too. “At this point, there’s been no previous criminal contact with this individual and so the mystery of why this happened is still a mystery,” Delaware County...
    SAN ANTONIO – After two arrests in connection with domestic violence incidents, former San Antonio Police Officer Jonathan Montalvo was fired, according to disciplinary records obtained by KSAT 12 News. In November 2019, San Antonio police arrested Montalvo, 23, on a felony domestic violence charge. A neighbor called police after they heard yelling, and when officers responded, Montalvo’s girlfriend told police her grabbed her by the neck and threw her on the bed while they were arguing. Following his arrest, Montalvo was placed on administrative duty following the arrest, but that was changed to administrative leave after he violated the conditions of his bond by continuing to live with the woman he is accused of assaulting. Montalvo was arrested again for violating the protective order, court records showed. Montalvo was suspended indefinitely, tantamount to firing, in July. It’s unclear whether he will appeal the decision. SAPD previously said Montalvo’s duty weapon and personal weapon were collected after the first arrest and are in the property room along with his duty gear. Montalvo remains free on bond while both criminal...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — At least 115 injury reports have been made involving a water slide at Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay, according to court records filed in a lawsuit by a tourist who says he was left paralyzed after going on the ride. The Orlando Sentinel reports the injuries included scrapes, nose bleeds, a concussion and whiplash. Two ride safety testers also were injured. Universal spokesman Tom Schroder told the newspaper in a statement that 1.5 million visitors have gone on the Punga Racers water slide since it opened in 2017, and New York tourist James Bowen’s injury was the only one that required reporting under Florida law. Bowen sued Universal and ride manufacturer ProSlide Technology in state court after he says his neck snapped back violently as he went through a wave of water at the end of the ride last year. Under Florida law, large theme parks are only required to report to the state ride injuries where visitors are hospitalized for at least 24 hours. “When there is an injury of any kind, we immediately begin an...
