Cory Booker Gave $20,000 to
Menendez’s Legal Expense Fund

Washington Free Beacon, by Joe Schoffstall

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/13/2017 7:40:52 PM

Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) gave $20,000 to the legal expense fund of Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), who is now on trial for corruption charges, records show. Salomon Melgen, the wealthy Florida doctor prosecutors say had a "corrupt pact" with Menendez, and his wife also donated tens of thousands to a prior legal expense trust that was established by Menendez. Booker appeared at the opening day of the corruption trial last week and sat in the first row behind his Democratic colleague. Booker said he expects "some serious appeals" if his mentor is convicted. "He´s innocent until proven guilty. So

So, if a Republican sat behind X defendant for a trial, wouldn´t the media claim it was to intimidate not just the judge, but the jury?

Does Cory Booker have something to worry about, involving the situation? Did he consort with those women (girls) that Menendez is alleged to have been supplied with by the doctor?

Women in the United States have significantly increased their labor-force participation since days past. But a new report from Pew Research Center shows that, despite these gains, Americans´ view of men as breadwinners hasn´t changed. "While a nearly equal share of men and women say a man needs to be able to provide for his family to be a good husband or partner (72% and 71%, respectively), men are less likely than women to say the same about women," notes researcher Kim Parker. This finding comes just a month after similar research was done by the University of Illinois—which I

The United States Geological Survey maps initially reported two moderate earthquakes off of Humboldt County on Friday afternoon, but officials have since clarified that one magnitude 5.7 quake hit in the ocean off of Ferndale. The quake, recorded at 12:50 PM local time at a depth of 9 kilometers, struck West of Humboldt Bay in an area that frequently experiences seismic activity. Though several people reported feeling shaking on the USGS "did you feel it feature," few people took to Twitter in Ferndale, Eureka or Arcata to report feeling the shaking.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen.

While in Baltimore visiting my 89-year-old black dad, I thanked him for filling me and my four younger siblings with the Word of God. I told Dad how I would hear a minister on TV begin reciting a verse from the Bible and find myself reciting the verse along with him. I wondered how I knew that verse from the Bible. Then, it dawned on me, Dad filled us with the Word of God when we were kids. Dad chuckled and told me a story. Aunt Nee asked Dad to deliver a payment to the Christian book store for a

Showtime has acquired the rights to adapt the upcoming novel from Bill Clinton and James Patterson, the network announced on Thursday. “The President Is Missing,” a thriller co-written by the former president and the bestselling author, is set to be published in June 2018 and Showtime now owns rights to adapt the highly sought after project into a series. The book, Clinton’s first novel, was announced back in May by publishers Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown and Company. Few plot details are known, but the book promises to “tell the startling story of a sitting U.S. president’s disappearance, with

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

Just when you thought The View had their most annoying guest of the season on last week with Hillary Clinton, on September 21’s show, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made an appearance. As to be expected, the panel treated Joe and Mika as if they were old friends, and gushed together over their mutual hatred of President Trump. The conversation started with the hosts mocking Trump as a “cyberbully” after the First Lady gave a speech speaking out against online bullying this week. That naturally morphed into a discussion on Trump’s “obsession” with Mika, and his tweets against the

In the exclusive interview with Fox News, President Trump said that he was considering pardoning Saucier for taking photos while inside a nuclear submarine. During his 2016 campaign for President Trump said he believed the one year sentence being served by Saucier was harsh. From Fox News: “I’m actually looking at it right now,” Trump told Hannity. “I think it’s very unfair in light of what’s happened with other people.” Sadie Saucier, who Friday morning was preparing to visit her husband at the Federal Medical Center at Fort Devens, Mass., where he has been held since October, said the words

One of the world’s largest and most prestigious law firms may have attracted the scrutiny of special counsel Robert Mueller’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Two sources with knowledge of the probe told The New York Times that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has asked Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, colloquially known simply as “Skadden,” to furnish documents related to its work for deposed Ukrainian strongman Viktor Yanukovych. The request is likely connected to Mueller’s ongoing investigation of Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman on whom the inquiry

CNN´s announced debate over the new GOP healthcare bill has left congressional Democrats and reporters aghast at Sen. Bernie Sanders´s (I., Vt.) presence on the stage. The debate, pitting bill authors Sen. Linsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R., La.), against Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Sanders, will take place September 25 at 9:00 p.m., CNN announced. Graham and Cassidy´s bill is aimed at rolling back Obamacare ahead of the simple-majority reconciliation deadline on September 30. It focuses primarily on devolving responsibility for healthcare to the states. Sanders, meanwhile, has spearheaded efforts to

A new survey from NBC News/Wall Street Journal is the perfect example of the utter worthlessness of public polling as it relates to the implementation of government policy. In the poll, which covers numerous political topics, one question stands out: “Would you favor or oppose a single-payer health care system in which all Americans would get their health insurance from one government plan that is financed by Taxes?” To this question, 47% said they “favored” such a system, 46% said they “opposed,” and 7% said they were “not sure.” However, when pollsters added a bit of specificity to the question, the

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are

We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
