Donald Trump tells North Carolina rally crowd that he sent the U.S. Marshals to get a suspect in Oregon and they killed him because "they didn't want to arrest him."  I am not making that up.  Watch for yourself.






Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) and Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-NY) urged Department of Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz to open an investigation into whether U.S. Marshals task force officers had legitimate grounds to kill Michael Reinoehl, a suspect sought in connection of the death of a pro-Trump protester. The letter is in response to a New York Times investigation and statements from President Trump that prompted questions about whether law enforcement officers made any legitimate attempt to arrest Mr. Reinoehl prior to his death. Both Reps. Lieu and Rice are former prosecutors and are calling for an investigation to determine if an extrajudicial killing occurred in Mr. Reinoehl’s case.


In the letter, the Members wrote:


Dear Inspector General Horowitz,

On September 3, members of a U.S. Marshals’ task force killed Michael Reinoehl, who was suspected of murder. A New York Times investigation casts doubt on whether the officers had legitimate grounds to kill Mr. Reinoehl. Based on accounts from eyewitnesses, the Times reconstruction of what occurred “raises questions about whether law enforcement officers made any serious attempt to arrest Mr. Reinoehl before killing him.”  On October 15, Donald Trump stated, “We sent in the US Marshals, took 15 minutes it was over … They knew who he was, they didn’t want to arrest him and 15 minutes that ended.” We respectfully request you open an investigation to determine if an extrajudicial killing occurred in this case.

True story, my uncle and I shared a bench with Leslie Stahl on the shuttle we took leaving the Metrodome after Super Bowl XXVII.  She was just becoming known for her work on 60 Minutes at the time.  Very attractive and ol Uncle Frank put the hard flirt on her!

Judge blasts DeVos’ sweeping denials of student loan relief claims as ‘disturbingly Kafkaesque’


A federal judge scrapped a settlement Tuesday over the Trump administration’s slow processing of loan forgiveness for borrowers who have accused their colleges of fraud, ruling that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos undermined the deal.


U.S. District Judge William Alsup said in a sharply worded decision that DeVos undercut the settlement by denying large swaths of the claims without sufficient explanation.


The class-action settlement, which was reached earlier this year and received preliminary approval from the court, was meant to force the Education Department to move faster on final decisions for roughly 160,000 of the backlogged requests for loan forgiveness, known as “borrower defense” claims. Some of the claims have languished at the department for years.


Alsup said he is alarmed that DeVos has in recent months responded by swiftly rejecting tens of thousands of the applications through “perfunctory” denial notices. Of the applications in question in the class-action lawsuit, DeVos has denied 74,000 applications and granted 4,400 applications, which the judge noted was a denial rate of 94 percent.


Ruling justification: Alsup called the denial notices “potentially unlawful” and said he was considering blocking DeVos from issuing any further denial notices as the lawsuit proceeds.
