The feds are investigating sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein

WASHINGTON (AP) — Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer said in a court filing that federal prosecutors in New York have launched a criminal investigation into the film producer, in addition to a previously disclosed probe by the Manhattan District Attorney.

Attorney Benjamin Brafman said in a declaration filed on May 3 in the Weinstein Co.’s bankruptcy proceedings that he had been advised that Weinstein was a “principal target” of an investigation being conducted by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan.

Senator: There’s a ‘Very Real’ Possibility Justice Kennedy is About to Retire, and I’m Told He Wants to Be Replaced By a Republican

We’ve been writing about the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy for some time now, having been informed by a very well-placed source last spring that Justice Anthony Kennedy was on the brink of retirement. Here we are more than a year later, and those rumors have only gained steam — with the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee going so far as to urge Kennedy to get on with it and announce his intentions as soon as possible. Among the members of the Senate who are most plugged into the goings on of the Supreme Court — out of both professional and family pedigree — is Utah’s Mike Lee, who also happens to be on President Trump’s SCOTUS short list. Sen. Lee joined Benson & Harf last evening to discuss an array of topics, but his intriguing and thorough answer to my question about the Court piqued my interest. Skip ahead to the six minute mark for that piece of the exchange:

Bethany Mandel : Lil Tay isn’t the first child star exploited by her parents. But perhaps she can be the last.

Platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram theoretically have policies for how old children have to be before opening an account, but no way to verify the birth dates users input. The result isn’t just kids opening their own accounts without their parents’ permission (though that happens plenty too), but accounts opened for children by their parents in order to monetize their offspring.

Brooke Baldwin interviews 30 year old upstate NY slacker–who won’t leave his parents’ house

The whole country’s having fun shooting spitballs at him, me included, but after watching this interview and reading further about him I’m leery of the possibility that there’s more going on here than just a severe case of slackeritis. He seems a bit disjointed in the clip. Ed noted in his post this morning that his parents demanded that he get “sessions with a therapist.” He recently lost his visitation rights to his child for unknown reasons. Business Insider tried to squeeze him for basic details about his life but that interview was weird too:

What Changed? The Same Media Who Excuse Bob Mueller Abused Ken Starr

Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “partisan” and “inept prosecutor,” and a “peeping Tom.”

So, When Did The Russia Probe Become A Political Clown Show, A Set Up?

So, we allegedly have the name of the spy the FBI used to gather information on the Trump team during the 2016 election. Just follow the breadcrumbs the news media left behind and then neglected for some reason to name the source; The Daily Caller printed his name and other outlets have now followed suit. The Intercept has an in-depth piece about Stefan Halper, a CIA operative that’s been named as the source, and his past activities, including the reported actions he took in 2016 to supposedly gather intelligence from the Trump team—specifically George Papadopoulos, Sam Clovis, and Carter Page. He’s also a professor at Cambridge University. So, what’s new? Well, we found out that he approached Carter Page weeks before the official start of the FBI’s counterintelligence probe into whether there was collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign, an investigation now quarterbacked by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
