Hunter Biden’s Attorney Files Ethics Complaint Against Rep.  Marjorie Taylor Greene

Hunter Biden’s Attorney Files Ethics Complaint Against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

Hunter Biden’s attorney Abbe David Lowell filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Friday, just days after the right-wing congresswoman showed poster-sized nude images of the president’s son at a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing. Lowell, in the letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics, wrote that it previously contacted the office over Greene’s defamatory statements and “bizarre dissemination of conspiracy theories” toward Hunter Biden, adding that she “lowered herself and by extension the entire House … to a new level of abhorrent behavior” with her actions at Wednesday’s hearing. Greene displayed the sexually explicit images at a hearing where the Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers made claims that the Justice Department interfered in an investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes.…

LA city attorney advises council members to avoid strikes

LA city attorney advises council members to avoid strikes

Los Angeles City Councilmembers Hugo Soto-Martínez and Nithya Raman sat cross-legged in the middle of Century Boulevard last month, helping to block cars from reaching Los Angeles International Airport in a show of solidarity with the region’s hotel workers. That demonstration — and the subsequent arrest of Soto-Martínez, Raman and nearly 200 others — generated headlines for obvious reasons. Zip ties and police processing aside, the presence of the two council members was hardly surprising. In recent months, an array of federal, state and local politicians — including several members of the City Council — have walked picket lines or offered support not just to Unite Here Local 11, the hotel workers union, but also TV and film writers marching outside studios and school workers demonstrating outside Los Angeles Unified campuses.…

A New York appeals court dismissed Ivanka Trump on Tuesday from a wide-ranging fraud lawsuit brought against her father and his company last year by the state’s attorney general. the civil lawsuit, brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, accused former President Trump of padding his net worth by billions of dollars and misleading banks, insurance companies and others about the value of his assets, including golf courses and the Mar-a-Lago estate. It named his three eldest children — Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump — as defendants, along with multiple Trump Organization executives.

Judge to issue warrant if owner of collapsed Davenport apartment doesn’t appear in court

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – A judge this morning rejected an agreement between the city of Davenport and Andrew Wold, the owner of the downtown building that collapsed Memorial Day weekend. Wold was scheduled to appear at the Scott County District Court on an enforcement action filed by the city that aims to keep Wold from transferring the building to other ownership and avoiding demolition costs and other fees. In a bizarre scene in court, Wold’s attorney, Jack O’Brien, called the judge instead of appearing in person. He said the city and Wold had come to an arrangement before the court hearing in which Wold would plead no contest.…

Seattle city attorney wants to prosecute drug cases after state law passes

Seattle city attorney wants to prosecute drug cases after state law passes

Seattle elected officials are considering whether the city should take on the responsibility of prosecuting public drug use and possession charges, amid a new state law and a rising substance use crisis. City Attorney Ann Davison is asking the City Council to approve a bill classifying public drug use and drug possession as gross misdemeanors, which would give the city attorney’s office the authority to prosecute both charges. In a special session on Tuesday, state legislators passed a bill that changes drug possession to a gross misdemeanor and criminalizes public use, after the Legislature failed to agree on a replacement for the current possession law, which is set to expire in July.…

WATCH: Attorneys for Lunden Roberts, mother of Hunter Biden’s daughter, speak to media following court hearing

BATESVILLE, Ark. – The attorneys for Lunden Roberts, an ex-stripper and the mother of Hunter Biden’s unacknowledged four-year-old daughter born out of wedlock, spoke to members of the media Monday following a court hearing in the open child support case between the two parents. “We feel like it went well, and we appreciate Judge Meyer and her impartiality and her directness,” attorney Clint Lancaster said when asked how he thought the proceedings went.
