Is There Really a Witch Hunt on for Duncan Hunter? | La Prensa San Diego

In Hunter’s case, if he really believes having donated to a Democrat is a disqualifier for impartiality or fairness, then he should get a new lawyer. Quickly. It turns out his lawyer, who also claims the investigation is politically motivated because of the Democratic fundraiser, is himself a big Democratic donor. Gregory Vega gave $5,400 to Hillary Clinton in her 2016 campaign against Trump, and also gave $2,000 that year to California US Senator Kamala Harris, herself a potential candidate for president in 2020 against Donald Trump. In 2008, Vega gave to Hillary Clinton in the primary and then to Barack Obama in the general election. And he’s given to then-Congressman Bob Filner and Congressman Juan Vargas. This year, Vega has donated our U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, and to Senator Doug Jones of Alabama. In fact, it doesn’t appear that Vega has ever given to any Republican. Does that make Vega a biased lawyer that is out to wrongfully convict Hunter? Of course not, but it does make both him and Hunter hypocrites.

Fingers Point to China After Break-Ins Target New Zealand Professor – The New York Times  – Clumsy clowns but dangerous.

Prof. Anne-Marie Brady, a China specialist at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, said her home was burglarized in February while she and her family were out. The thief or thieves ignored a glass jar of cash and other valuables, she said, in favor of an “old, broken” laptop, on which she had conducted her most recent research, and a “cheap” cellphone the professor had used on travels to China. Analysts said there was strong circumstantial evidence that agents of Beijing were responsible. Peter Mattis, a former C.I.A. analyst and now a China Program fellow at the Jamestown Foundation, said the burglary, along with previous break-ins at her office, meant there was “only one likely culprit for this,” referring to China. Ms. Brady’s high profile on matters of China’s influence worldwide meant “intimidating her into silence would in a sense be a major win” for the country, he said.

Conservative Pundit Points Finger at Another Man to Deflect from Kavanaugh – The New York Times And has to back off!

“He is a brilliant, meticulous and serious lawyer,” Mr. Schmidt wrote on Twitter on Friday. “He is not a conspiracy nut. It is inconceivable to me that Whelan published that email without discussions, debate and assistance from the WH and GOP Senators and staff.” He added, “It is not the isolated musings of one man but rather part of a broader discreditation strategy.”

Trump demands Kavanaugh vote after lashing out at accuser | US news | The Guardian – Proof that he does not write all of his tweets – the first one written by someone who forgot to write down to Trump’s dumber than dumb level. but all are as creepy as can be from someone who brags about grabbing women!

‘No accident’ Brett Kavanaugh’s female law clerks ‘looked like models’, Yale professor told students | US news | The Guardian

A top professor at Yale Law School who strongly endorsed supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a “mentor to women” privately told a group of law students last year that it was “not an accident” that Kavanaugh’s female law clerks all “looked like models” and would provide advice to students about their physical appearance if they wanted to work for him, the Guardian has learned. Amy Chua, a Yale professor who wrote a bestselling book on parenting called Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, was known for instructing female law students who were preparing for interviews with Kavanaugh on ways they could dress to exude a “model-like” femininity to help them win a post in Kavanaugh’s chambers, according to sources.

Indicted NY Congressman Chris Collins Explains Why He’s Still Running: Gothamist Makes hackers look small – elect accused criminal so he can steal more? WTF!

Republican Congressman Chris Collins, who last month was indicted on insider trading charges by federal prosecutors, has re-entered the congressional race, despite initially saying that he would suspend his campaign. In an email to supporters on Wednesday, the three-term congressman promised to “actively campaign” for re-election and assured Buffalo-area voters that they could count on him to serve if elected. That promise comes five weeks after he was arrested by the FBI, following a year-long investigation into his alleged trading on insider information from an Australian biotech company on whose board he served. He was charged with securities fraud, wire fraud, and making false statements and released on $500,000 bail. “The stakes are too high to allow the radical left to take control of this seat in Congress,” Collins wrote in the statement. “Their agenda is clear. They want to reverse the recently enacted tax cuts, impose Canadian style healthcare, inflict new job-killing regulations and impeach President Trump.”
