Donald Trump Sues Hillary Clinton and the DNC

"Lawsuit. Here's what it says quote acting in concert, the defendants, and this is Hillary Clinton, the DNC committee, and several others. Maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent Donald Trump was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty. The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly sensitive data sources are so outrageous subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison. It's a hundred page lawsuit filed in the U.S. D.C. court from a U.S. district court of southern district of Florida. And a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton responded with a one word statement nonsense. DNC spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Washington Post. More

Caller Frustrated Joe Biden Excludes Black Men, Other Races for Supreme Court Justice Consideration

"You know? That's the word I've been using all day Harold. How about a black judge on a U.S. district court somewhere, some brilliant judge who hears the promise and the guarantee that he doesn't stand a chance because he's not a female. That's terrible. Exactly. I mean, it's offensive. I talk to my children about this quite a bit. Okay, what do you do with Asians? What do you do with Hispanics? What do you do with west Indian? I mean, you've just wiped all of them out and what's saddening for me and I'm gonna make a general statement is we as black people and it is general because there aren't those like myself who are not standing up for it, fall into this same old, same old scheme of allowing allowing another group or another political entity to tell us what we are and what we are not. And it's sickening. And I would think as a Supreme Court, justice or somebody that's up there, whoever he's picking, that should be offensive for them to want to step into those shoes because I know at my job, if I had found out that I was hired only because I was a black man, I'd be out of there in two seconds. Exactly. Why would you want to work for a place like that? You know Harold, I hope that your point is the point that Republicans make all through the nomination process not attacking her or going after her or grilling her because they're going to use that as a campaign tool for the midterms. And for me, it's all about the midterms. Listen, we're going to lose this. We there's nothing we can do about the seat. They've got the votes, unless Manchin cinema come over and they won't, they're not going to. They're not going to, they're not going to cross party line on this one. But I hope that's the point everybody could remember because decent normal, clear thinking people find this outrageous.

Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program.

Many In Flint Question Whether They'll Get Justice For Water Crisis

"According to multiple media reports michigan's former governor and other officials will be charged in relation to the flint water crisis seven years ago despite possible criminal charges. A lot of residents still question. Whether those officials will be held accountable. Michigan radio steve carmody reports. Nearly seven years ago government leaders here push the button that switch the city of flint drinking water source from detroit's water system to the flint river flag. The intent was to save money. The result was a complete disaster treated river water damage to pipes which then released lead and other contaminants into the city's drinking water eighteen months later. The water was switched back but the damage was done. Blood lead levels soared in young children. People were forced to use bottled water for drinking and washing clothes. The city was forced to rip out thousands of old pipes while testifying about the flint water crisis before congress. Four years ago former governor. Rick snyder acknowledged mistakes. State and federal officials failed the families of flint. Snyder was not among the fifteen state and local government officials face criminal charges for their handling of the crisis half of them pled guilty to lesser charges in exchange for no jail time and in two thousand nineteen michigan's new attorney general dropped charges against the remaining defendants citing problems with the original investigation. The investigation seemed over until yesterday when the associated press reported that several former government officials including former governor snyder. We'll be facing new charges. If that happens. Legal experts say it would be difficult case for prosecutors. Peter hammer teaches law at wayne state university in detroit. He says despite possible difficulty getting convictions. It's important to bring charges especially in an era where we're living where people are not being held accountable. This could be an important statement about the significance of the rule of law and that not even the highest public official in the state is going to get off. Scot-free a spokeswoman for former governor. Rick snyder calls the reports of impending charges a public relations smear campaign saying that if brought they would be meritless since during eighteen months of foul-smelling dirty tap water that made them sick flint residents have demanded justice and compensation a us district court. Judge is expected to decide in the coming days if she will give preliminary approval to a massive settlement agreement resolving most of the thousands of outstanding lawsuits last year. The state of michigan announced. It struck a deal with attorneys representing flint residents to pay six hundred million dollars into a settlement fund. A few months later the city of fled a local hospital and an engineering firm agreed to chip in another forty one million dollars. Nearly eighty percent of that money would be set aside for plaintiffs. who were young children or minors. During the crisis they are the ones most at risk for suffering long-term lead related health problems. But growing course of critics say it's not enough a group of flint. Civic and religious leaders led by pastor. John maclean gathered monday outside. The city's water plant to express concern about the settlement. We believe that the proposed settlement curly allocated is just as disrespectful as injury-cause by the water crisis tragedy itself in addition to tens of thousands of residents. There aren't the lawyers lots of them. More than one hundred forty took part in a zoom hearing with the judge last month. This is part of the challenge facing the judge how to divide a large pool of money without leaving some feeling victimized again. Flint's mayor says it's important. His residents have a belief in justice and developments. This week may help with that for npr news. I'm steve carmody in flint.

DOJ To Drop Charges Against Former Mexican Official Arrested At Los Angeles International Airport

"Unexpected move by the. Us justice department has thrown the us mexico relationship into the spotlight last month. Former mexican general salvador sent away goes to pay who was arrested in los angeles and face charges of drug trafficking and corruption. Today though a us district court judge allowed prosecutors to drop all charges against wego's opening the door for him to return to mexico and allowing mexican officials to investigate to walk us through this eyebrow raising move. The world's jorges valencia joins us from mexico city or. Hey what was the justice. Department accusing sent way goes of remind us prosecutors. Were saying that he was using his position. As the former defense minister of mexico he was the head of the defense ministry from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen. He said he was using that position to allow an organized crime group known as h. Two to traffic see nited states without interference now appear to have a very solid case. They spent more than a year on this so it was a very big surprise when none other than william bar the. Us attorney general himself issued a statement. Yesterday saying that prosecutors were going to drop all charges and return general. Cf way goes to mexico. Mexico's foreign relations minister monticello eradicate public remarks about this yesterday. Out here saying that. He doesn't see this as a path toward impunity but rather his way in which the department of justice is showing to mexico and showing respect to mexico's military. This feels like such a one. Eighty especially considering sent wiggles was arrested just last month. So what kind of reaction has there been shock bewilderment. I mean for people who are involved in efforts to fight organized crime here in mexico. They're very surprised by this. Because this isn't just about the charges that inflation was facing a disa- court in new york but also about other crimes that many people believe that the government was involved in while he was the defense minister most notably the case of forty three university students. Who went missing in the southern state of guerrero. And we're never found. I spoke with mike v. he'll he is the former director of international operations at the da and he was based here in mexico for more than ten years. Quite frankly in my thirty one year career with the drug enforcement administration. I had never seen anything like this. That says Langage and the most repulsive thing that i've ever seen in the history of us justice. Marco one important piece of context to have is that mexico's courts are are notoriously challenged some estimates Find that nine out of ten crimes in mexico go unpunished so when you have somebody as powerful as the former defense minister general goes if he actually did commit any crimes that he was being accused of in the united states. There is a good chance that he could walk away without facing trial. Are there any theories as to why the. Us justice department would drop these charges. I mean drug trafficking. Mexico remains a high priority for us national security. There seems be more to the story. I should be clear that it is speculation but the prevailing theory is that by returning generals who goes to mexico. The trump administration is returning a favor to the administration of president under manuel lopez or mexico has done a lot of work to prevent people over the past couple of years from migrating from central america toward the united states. It's very difficult to tell. Because by releasing general goes One question is answered but many many many more questions are being asked. The world's jorges valencia in mexico city. Thank you very much for this. You welcome marco.

Politicians, Constance Baker Motley

"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood.

She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine. Constance is work integrated multiple southern state universities putting her toe-to-toe with racist governors determined to bar black students from schools. She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels. So she had to stay with local activists, but even that didn't make her feel completely safe her friend Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar. Evers. was murdered his own driveway.
