Avenatti, constant thorn in President Donald Trump‘s side, is, of course innocent until proven guilty. However, the details of what allegedly happened, as reported by TMZ, paint a very ghastly picture. Anonymous law enforcement sources told TMZ the woman’s face was “swollen and bruised.” Then came the alleged quotes: “She hit me first,” Stormy Daniels’ attorney allegedly screamed. “This is bullshit.

By Martha Ross | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: August 7, 2018 at 11:38 am | UPDATED: August 7, 2018 at 11:40 am Once upon a time, Kathleen Turner was one of America’s most interesting screen actresses.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders answered three questions on whether President Donald Trump believes it was appropriate for his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to accept payments from outside companies. She said the deals met the definition of “draining the swamp.” WATCH the exchanges in the player above. Cohen has been under fire since Tuesday afternoon when Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, released a report which purported to show payments from a number of entities to a business owned and controlled by Cohen, Essential Consultants, LLC. The payments have since been confirmed by several companies, including telephone provider AT&T and pharmaceutical company Novartis. AT&T said it paid Cohen “to provide insights into understanding the new administration,” but AT&T is now saying the payments were a “big mistake.” Novartis said that Cohen contacted them “promising access” to the … [Read more...] about Huckabee Sanders: Michael Cohen’s AT&T, Novartis Deals Meet ‘Definition of Draining the Swamp’
By Dianne de Guzman, SFGATE Updated 5:01 pm, Thursday, May 10, 2018 A video of a confrontation over a charcoal barbecue at Lake Merritt is attracting national attention after being shared and viewed thousands of times since its initial posting. A white woman was in disagreement with two black men over whether a charcoal grill was allowed at Lake Merritt. Video of the confrontation shows the unidentified woman on the phone as she waits to talk with the Oakland Police Department, and people at the lake argue with her. Oakland resident Onsayo Abram was setting up the barbecue that morning when he said the woman began to argue with him over the use of the grill. Abram said the woman called Lake Merritt "my park" and told him, "you guys shouldn't be here, you shouldn't be doing this." "She walked up, and she was telling me that it was illegal and against the law to have a charcoal grill at the lake," Abram told SFGATE of the incident. "I proceed to tell her, 'Hey, there's not a … [Read more...] about Video shows woman calling police over barbecue at Lake Merritt
