The Latest: Accuser at center of released files speaks out

The Latest: Accuser at center of released files speaks outThe Jeffrey Epstein accuser who filed a since-settled lawsuit against Epstein’s ex-girlfriend says she’s grateful he will never harm anyone again, but is angry there will be no chance he answers for his conduct. Virginia Giuffre tells The New York Times that her husband woke her up early in Australia to share the news that the wealthy financier died Saturday morning in an apparent suicide. The records contain graphic allegations against Epstein, as well as the transcript of a 2016 deposition of Epstein in which he repeatedly refused to answer questions to avoid incriminating himself.

Trump speaks in front of fake presidential seal mysteriously manipulated to feature Russian eagles and golf clubs

Trump speaks in front of fake presidential seal mysteriously manipulated to feature Russian eagles and golf clubsDonald Trump appeared at a right-wing rally in front of a fake presidential seal, doctored to make apparently satiric references to Russia and golf.The tweaked image flashed up on a screen behind the president as he spoke to a summit hosted by the conservative group Turning Point USA in Washington earlier this week.The normally solitary bald eagle was seen with two heads, made to resemble the two-headed bird on the official Russian coat of arms in a mocking nod to Mr Trump’s woes with investigations into Moscow’s election meddling.The symbolic bird also showed up clutching a bag of golf clubs – evidently a joke about the president’s fondness for spending so much time on the links.Both the White House and Turning Point USA said they were unaware of why or how the altered image appeared on the screen.A spokesman for Turning Point USA told The Washington Post it was a “last-minute A/V [audio/visual] mistake” after the newspaper first highlighted the doctored seal.“I can’t figure out who did it yet. I don’t know where they got the image from,” he added, explaining they organisation was still try to determine who was responsible and where they got the image from.> Seriously?? > How did Russia’s national symbol end up on a presidential seal at a trump event? t.co/z6omAXnz6q pic.twitter.com/u8Baym73fM> > — Olga Lautman (@olgaNYC1211) > > July 25, 2019Richard Painter, who served as the George W Bush administration’s chief White House ethics lawyer, told the Post: “To let someone project something on the screen that isn’t controlled by the White House is pretty stupid.”He added: “Someone is going to be getting in trouble, but they got one heck of a good laugh out of it.”Mr Painter explained that First Amendment freedom of expression rights allowed people to parody the official presidential seal.Kathleen Clark, legal professor at Washington University, said: “Was someone at Turning Point trolling Trump? I just think Putin would probably approve.”

Analysis: Mueller speaks, but 2020 voters may have final say

Analysis: Mueller speaks, but 2020 voters may have final sayRobert Mueller’s testimony sent the clearest signal yet that impeachment may be slipping out of reach for Democrats and that the ultimate verdict on President Donald Trump will be rendered by voters in the 2020 election. Democrats had hoped the former special counsel’s appearance Wednesday would be a turning point. A Marine who served in Vietnam, Mueller is the kind of square-jawed federal prosecutor to whom Americans may have once listened as a trusted source of authority.

Justice Thomas speaks as U.S. top court confronts racial bias in jury selection

Justice Thomas speaks as U.S. top court confronts racial bias in jury selectionU.S. Supreme Court justices appeared poised to side with a black Mississippi death row inmate put on trial six times for a 1996 quadruple murder who accused a prosecutor of repeatedly blocking black potential jurors, though the court’s only black member sounded skeptical. Justice Clarence Thomas, who had not posed a question during an oral argument in three years, asked several in the case involving Curtis Flowers, 48, who has argued that his constitutional right to a fair trial was violated. Thomas, an idiosyncratic conservative and only the second African American ever appointed to the court, signaled through his questions he might vote against Flowers, who otherwise drew broad support among the other justices, both liberal and conservative.
