[Just The News - John Solomon's Site] Hillary Clinton and Cheryl Mills are seeking to avoid depositions ordered by a judge earlier this year
The State Department on Monday rejected Hillary Clinton’s effort to avoid depositions for herself and her former chief of staff in a lawsuit brought by the government watchdog organization Judicial Watch.
The former Secretary of State and her former top aide Cheryl Mills are seeking a writ of mandamus to avoid a judge’s order requiring their testimony in an open records case involving Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business.
"The government did not seek and thus does not support the extraordinary relief of mandamus due to the unique circumstances of this case," reads the State Department's response signed by multiple members of the Justice Department.

[BREITBART] Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ...Senator-for-life from New York, renowned for his love of standing in front of cameras and microphones. Schumer has been a professional politician since 1975, when disco was in flower, which is 44.33654 years. Senate minority leader as of 2017... (D-NY) doubled down on his demands for President Trump to appoint a military "czar" to oversee the distribution of medical supplies to states, providing a list of names Sunday to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
"And they have no one, that I can best tell, in charge of the distribution," Schumer said during an appearance on CNN’s OutFront last week.
They need one person, a military person, a general who knows how to deal with logistics and order mastering, who knows command and control, you need to place that person, the czar, in charge of both production and distribution of all of [these] kinds of needed equipment and get it to the places that are needed and that have shortages.
Trump has yet to positively respond to Schumer’s plea, contending he does, in fact, have a military figure leading FEMA’s supply chain task force ‐Rear Adm. John Polowczyk.
Pres. Trump responded 5 days ago:
In a Thursday morning tweet, Trump rejected the advice, saying Navy Rear Adm. John Polowczyk is already in charge of distribution of supplies at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Trump tweeted: “Somebody please explain to Cryin’ Chuck Schumer that we do have a military man in charge of distributing goods, a very talented Admiral, in fact. New York has gotten far more than any other State, including hospitals & a hospital ship, but no matter what, always complaining. It wouldn’t matter if you got ten times what was needed, it would never be good enough.”
For five straight days, health care facilities in the Empire State have discharged more COVID-19 patients than they have admitted new ones. The daily numbers for patients admitted to intensive care units and those placed on ventilators dropped for the second straight day.
[JustTheNews] The California Republican's lawyers attempted to overturn the federal corruption conviction earlier this month
Former congressman Duncan Hunter (R.-Calif.) was sentenced on Tuesday to 11 months in prison and three years of parole for charges pertaining to his misuse of nearly $250,000 in campaign funds.
Once released from prison, Hunter, a former Marine, will be on supervised release and mandated to complete a drug and alcohol treatment program.
At the hearing Hunter said he takes "full responsibility for any dime that was spent by me or anyone else on my campaign." His wife, Margaret Hunter, was indicted with the former representative in 2018.
Though initially Hunter seemed to blame his wife for the corruption charges during a televised appearance, something which Assistant U.S. Attorney Phillip Halpern called attention to in his 87-page sentencing recommendation, Hunter has since requested that the judge not sentence his wife ‐ the mother of his three children ‐ to any time behind bars.
His lawyers previously attempted to overturn the conviction against the former congressman, citing the misrepresentation of the prosecutors' presence at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in 2015.
I’m pretty sure it is unconstitutional for a representative to the lower house of a state legislature to get involved in the nation’s international affairs.
[VictoryGirls] An Ohio State Representative has decided that President Trump should stand trial at The Hague for "crimes against humanity."
"Rep. Tavia Galonski
...D-Akron, tried to organize her fellow flight attendants for the Teamsters while in law school, which led to a stint as a family court judge. The honourable state representative is also the proud possessor of an extra chromosome. She was appointed to finish out another short timer’s term three years ago, and is now trying to make a name for herself in the most pretentious way possible. Because family court judges are well versed in international law, donchaknow.
tweeted in response to Trump’s remarks, "I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow."

[BREITBART] Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) has vetoed legislation that would mandate state voters to show a photo ID before they vote in the 2020 presidential election, and every election after.
Last week, Beshear announced his veto of mandatory voter ID legislation that ensures all registered voters must prove their identity before they cast a ballot, starting in November.
According to Beshear, requiring voter ID creates "an obstacle" that results "in fewer people voting," though research and data show otherwise. In Alabama, which has a mandatory voter ID law, black American voters came out in droves in 2018 to help elect Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate.
"I am vetoing Senate Bill 2 because the provisions of the law would create an obstacle to the ability of Kentuckians to exercise their right to vote, resulting in fewer people voting and undermining our democracy," Beshear wrote. "Furthermore, no documented evidence of recent voter fraud in the form of impersonation in Kentucky has been presented."
[BREITBART] The GOP is gearing up for what could be a contentious battle over the next stage of coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... relief, as Democrats continue to signal their desire to pursue a variety of changes related to the U.S. election.
Republicans and Democrats are expected to begin the process of crafting the next stage of economic relief after successfully passing a bipartisan measure to provide relief to small businesses and individuals affected by the coronavirus pandemic last month. The measure ultimately passed unanimously in the Senate, but it initially did not go without opposition, as House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments... (D-CA) attempted to offer her own version of relief filled with a variety of liberal "wish list" items, including major changes to voting methods. While the speaker has signaled support for a bipartisan measure in the same mold as the last, she hinted last week that she is still going to pursue changes to voting methods.
"Vote-by-mail is essential to protecting the future of our democracy as we confront this public health crisis. There is no legitimate argument against enacting it," Pelosi said last week:
As law firms look for ways to cut costs to weather the economic downturn, financial investments in diversity and inclusion initiatives may suffer as a result. And as firms cut pay and even lay off some attorneys, the choices they make could have a disparately negative impact on attorneys of color and women, industry experts said.
