Interior Secretary Haaland signs Montana tribes water rights compact

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland signed the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes water rights compact on Friday, settling a decades-long battle over thousands of individual water rights in Montana and on the Flathead Indian Reservation. The deal also created a $1.9 billion trust to settle claims and refurbish the Flathead Indian Irrigation Project in Montana.

The tribes have claims to more than 10,000 water rights beyond their reservation land. The compact offered a deal where the tribes relinquished their claims to most of the water outside of the reservation.

Politico pardoned by Trump accused of illegal campaign scam – WFTV

A Republican political operative pardoned by President Donald Trump after his conviction in a 2012 bribery plot has been charged again with campaign-related crimes, this time involving a 2016 illegal campaign contribution scheme and a Russian national.

Jesse Benton, 43, of Louisville, Kentucky, was accused in an indictment unsealed Monday in federal court in Washington.

Trump pardoned Benton in December after his conviction in a case involving false records and campaign reports to the Federal Election Commission. Prosecutors said Benton and two others who were working on the 2012 presidential campaign of Ron Paul tried to hide $73,000 in payments to an Iowa state senator, Kent Sorenson, for his endorsement of Paul.

The most recent case is similar in nature to the 2012 charges. Benton, who was the former chief strategist for the pro-Trump Great America PAC, and Roy Douglas “Doug” Wead, who served as an adviser to multiple presidential campaigns and is a presidential historian and author, were accused of conspiracy to solicit and cause an illegal campaign contribution by a Russian foreign national during the 2016 presidential election.

Both men appeared in court Monday. Benton’s attorney did not immediately return messages seeking comment. Wead attorney Jay Sekulow said Wead pleaded not guilty.

Long Island Man Targeted Latino Immigrants for Attack, Police Say – The New York Times (Me: Coward, racist and bad liar)

Christopher Cella, 19, drove to a spot near a Latino market and restaurant in Farmingville, N.Y., the police said. The market, La Placita, is popular with immigrant men in the area who wait nearby in hopes of landing temporary work.

Mr. Cella picked up a 52-year-old man there, drove him to an abandoned construction site and attacked him, the police said.

Mr. Cella then went to a nearby 7-Eleven store, another informal hiring hub for day laborers, and picked up a 60-year-old man, driving to an apartment complex and attacking him as well, the police said. Mr. Cella placed him in a chokehold from behind and squeezed his neck violently before the man was able to escape, the authorities said.

Early Saturday, the police said, Mr. Cella returned to the 7-Eleven and picked up a 47-year-old man. Once in the car, the man became suspicious of Mr. Cella’s intentions and got out. Mr. Cella tried to run him down, the authorities said.

All three of the victims were Hispanic, the police said, and on Sunday, Mr. Cella, of Selden, N.Y., was arrested and charged with several hate crimes. He was placed on supervised release with GPS monitoring at an arraignment on Monday and is scheduled to return to court on Friday.

In a phone interview on Monday, Mr. Cella denied that the episodes were racially motivated and said that one involved a man toward whom he felt lingering animosity as a result of a painting job they had worked on together.

“It’s not a race thing,” said Mr. Cella, who added that he had merely meant to drive the men to remote locations from which it would be difficult to get home and had not meant to get into physical altercations.

“My intention wasn’t to do anything to hurt them,” he said.

The attacks, he added, were a result of being under the influence of Xanax, a psychiatric drug that is prescribed to treat anxiety and panic disorders but that the Food and Drug Administration has warned carries a significant risk of abuse and addiction.

Virginia Republican apologizes for mocking Jewish House speaker’s nose – The Jerusalem Post (Me: Racist and sexist)

“My comment regarding Eileen Filler-Corn earlier today was immature and impulsive,” Copeland said late Friday in a tweet. “It was never intended to be antisemitic or reference her ethnicity or religion. I apologize to anyone I may have offended. It is not an accurate reflection of my character, beliefs and values.”Source: Virginia Republican apologizes for mocking Jewish House speaker’s nose – The Jerusalem Post
