  • Three Weinstein Accusers Could Send Producer to Prison for Life news

    (Bloomberg) -- As the jurors in Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault trial wrestle with a pair of charges that could send the fallen movie mogul to prison for life, the testimony of three women who don’t even appear in his indictment could help seal his fate.They’re known as Molineux witnesses in New York, where Weinstein is being tried, and they testified to their own encounters with him as prosecutors sought to persuade the jury that the two women he is charged with attacking never gave their consent to sex. Such witnesses testified in the retrial of Bill Cosby in Pennsylvania, which ended in his conviction.On Friday the jury sent a note to the judge referring to two counts of predatory sexual assault -- counts one and three on the verdict sheet it’s working from -- and suggesting it might be deadlocked.“We the jury request to understand if we can be hung on one and/or three and unanimous on the other charges. Thank you,” the jurors told the judge. He told them to keep trying.The other charges are a criminal sexual act and rape. Weinstein is accused of forcing oral sex on “Project Runway” assistant Miriam Haley in his SoHo loft in 2006 and raping aspiring actor Jessica Mann in a midtown Manhattan hotel in 2013.In a category by herself is the actor Annabella Sciorra, who told the jury that Weinstein raped her in the early 1990s. Her allegations are a linchpin for the two predatory sexual assault counts, the gravest charges facing the former Hollywood power broker.Predatory sexual assault requires a serious attack on at least two people. To find Weinstein guilty on count one, the jury would need to be persuaded by the evidence for the alleged attacks on both Haley and Sciorra. To convict him on count three, it would need to find that he assaulted both Mann and Sciorra.Read More: Weinstein Jury Stuck on Most Serious Charges, Told to Keep at ItThe testimony of the Molineux witnesses may come into play as well. Weinstein’s lawyers argue that any encounters their client had were consensual. If the jury finds the allegations of assault from these three women credible, it may decide Haley and Mann never gave Weinstein their consent either, and convict him of rape and a criminal sexual act.And if the jurors believe Sciorra, too, that will meet the requirements of predatory sexual assault -- the two counts they seem to be stuck on -- and Weinstein, 67, could spend the rest of his life behind bars.Weinstein’s lawyers have told the jury that the women had consensual, and even transactional, sex with their client, and that they “re-labeled” the encounters as assaults years after the fact in the wake of the MeToo movement.The first of the three witnesses, Dawn Dunning, testified that in 2004, when she was an aspiring actor waiting tables, Weinstein lured her to a business meeting in a hotel room and digitally penetrated her. The second, Tarale Wulff, told the court that minutes after meeting the producer in 2005, when she was working as a cocktail waitress, he dragged her up a secluded stairwell and masturbated, and later raped her in his SoHo apartment. The third, Lauren Young, said she was a model trying to make it as a screenwriter in 2013 when Weinstein trapped her in his hotel suite’s bathroom, where he stripped off the top of her dress and groped her.Such testimony about uncharged crimes is typically considered too prejudicial to allow, but it’s permitted under limited circumstances. While it can’t be used to suggest a defendant has a propensity to commit a crime, it can explore the defendant’s intent or a common theme. In New York it dates back to a landmark 1901 decision involving a chemist named Roland Molineux who was accused in a fatal cyanide poisoning.Read More: Weinstein’s ‘Trial of the Century’ Gets Its Own PodcastNew York State Supreme Court Justice James Burke ruled in December, over the objections of the defense, that the three accusers could be called to rebut Weinstein’s argument that the encounters were consensual and to show his “intent to use forcible compulsion” on Haley and Mann. The decision was unsealed on Feb. 7, revealing that prosecutors sought to call a total of five such witnesses, the same number as at the Cosby trial.In the end, Burke allowed three.“The consistent theme is that the defendant used his business stature in the movie industry to lure women to believe that he would connect them to careers in the entertainment industry,” Burke wrote, adding that the testimony could help the jury of seven men and five women understand why Haley and Mann feared reprisals if they went to the police.He said it could help the jurors decide whether Weinstein “created an engineered situation where he could be alone” with Mann and Haley “and then sexually assault them.”Weinstein’s lawyers have cited Burke’s Molineux ruling, as well as other decisions that went against them, in calling for a mistrial. Burke has denied the requests.The case is People v. Weinstein, 450293/2018, New York State Supreme Court (Manhattan).Read MoreJurors Focus on Predatory Assault, Most Serious ChargeSciorra Describes Gift of Popcorn, Then RapeWeinstein Was Jekyll and Hyde, Witness Testifies‘I Think I Was Raped’: Jury Hears Rosie Perez Back Up SciorraJessica Mann Is Grilled on Contact After Alleged Assault Accuser Called Weinstein a ‘Soul Mate,’ Friend TestifiesWeinstein’s Dream Jury Is Conservative, Traditional, SkepticalA MeToo Moment Two Years in the MakingTo contact the reporter on this story: Patricia Hurtado in Federal Court in Manhattan at pathurtado@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Glovin at, Peter JeffreyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • Outcry after MSNBC host compares Sanders’ Nevada win to Nazi invasion news

You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”“So I had that suppressed feeling,” Matthews also said.Sanders, a senator from Vermont and self-proclaimed democratic socialist, is Jewish.He won the Nevada caucuses easily, helping solidify his status as the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in a primary split between moderates and progressives. Sanders’ win came in the wake of a strong showing in Iowa and victory in New Hampshire.> MSNBC’s Chris Matthews likens Sanders victory in Nevada to Nazi Germany overrunning France in 1940: “It’s too late to stop him … it’s over”> > — Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) February 22, 2020Matthews’ words prompted widespread anger.“Bernie is Jewish and his family was killed by the Nazis,” tweeted David Sirota, a Sanders speechwriter and former Guardian contributor. “None of this is OK.”“This is absolutely disgusting on [Matthews’] part,” tweeted Parker Molloy, editor-at-large at Media Matters for America. “Retire, get fired, whatever. Bottom line is that Matthews needs to be out of a job.”On air, Matthews said Republicans would disclose opposition research on Sanders that would “kill him” in the general election against Donald Trump.“It looks like Bernie Sanders is hard to beat,” Matthews said of the primary, adding: “I think it’s a little late to stop him, and I think that’s the problem.”MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

  • Netanyahu Seeks 300,000 Lost Votes From Vote-Weary Public news

    (Bloomberg) -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is heading into Israel’s third back-to-back election struggling to recoup the hundreds of thousands of votes his party has lost since the country descended into political gridlock a year ago. It could be tough to finally defeat his challenger without them.In recent weeks, Netanyahu has parleyed at the White House and the Kremlin, met with once-hostile Muslim leaders now seeking better relations with Israel, and touted a consumer-friendly economic program trying to boost his party’s showing in the March 2 vote.But even then, most polls consistently showed his Likud party slightly trailing former military chief Benny Gantz’s centrist Blue and White bloc, even after the prime minister pulled out his Trump card: winning U.S. approval to annex war-won territory the Palestinians want for a state.President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan, which allows Israel to extend its sovereignty over 30% of the West Bank, thrilled many in Netanyahu’s right-wing camp and was supposed to be the springboard that would finally catapult him to victory after two inconclusive elections. That excitement quickly soured after the Trump administration said the process could take months, and wouldn’t begin before the vote, as Netanyahu had promised.Leaders of Israel’s right wing now doubt that their decades-long dream will ever materialize at all, and that could cost Netanyahu support.Why would someone from the settlements “vote for Netanyahu a third time if he doesn’t see anything tangible happening?” Israel Ganz, head of the Mateh Binyamin council -- one of the regions waiting to be annexed -- said in an interview in his West Bank office. “The prime minister has to understand that in order to get people out of their homes they have to see something happen. Call Trump and say, ‘If you don’t give me anything, I’ll lose the elections.’”With his campaign failing to gain traction, and voters burdened by election fatigue after three ballots in 11 months, Netanyahu’s messaging has shifted to turnout, much as it did in the last gasp of his 2015 campaign, when he whipped up 11th-hour support by warning of Arab voters coming out “in droves.” New polls showing Likud edging ahead, though the shift is not enough for the right-wing camp to form a government.“At the moment, the shift is fairly small and doesn’t change the overall picture,” said Simon Davies, a Tel Aviv-based pollster at Number 10 Strategies. “Netanyahu will hope it is an indicator of a growing trend over the next week, though he will also worry it galvanizes higher turnout among Blue and White supporters.”Likud lost about 300,000 votes last election, even after it swallowed up one rival party and persuaded a second to drop out of the running. If stay-at-home Likud supporters come out to the polls this time to recoup that loss, “we’ll cruise to victory,” Netanyahu said in an interview with Army Radio last week. The 300,000 supporters he spoke of would roughly equal eight more seats in Israel’s 120-member parliament.Netanyahu’s nationalist and religious camp is as many as seven seats short of a parliamentary majority, according to polls published last week. Pollsters cite a mix of apathy and discontent with the Israeli leader, who goes to trial on March 17 to face bribery and fraud charges.If the surveys don’t bode well for Netanyahu, then they don’t show a clear pathway to power for Gantz, either, even after two closely spaced revotes.“Everything is so baked in now that it’s very difficult to see movement anywhere on the map,” Davies said.“The game is going to be played out in the horse trading” during coalition talks, he said.(Updates with new polls in seventh paragraph)\--With assistance from Ivan Levingston.To contact the reporter on this story: Yaacov Benmeleh in Tel Aviv at ybenmeleh@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nayla Razzouk at, Amy Teibel, Michael GunnFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 20-Year-Old Woman, Boyfriend Arrested Over Rental Dispute Triple Homicide news

    A 20-year-old woman and her 18-year-old boyfriend were arrested in Las Vegas on Thursday after the woman’s three roommates were found dead inside their shared home in Hemet, California.Hemet police Chief Eddie Pust on Friday told reporters that Jordan Destinee Guzman, and her boyfriend, Anthony Damion McCloud, were apprehended in connection to the triple homicide—which allegedly stemmed from a dispute over the rental agreement. The three victims—46-year-old Wendy Araiza, her 21-year-old daughter Genesis Araiza, and Trinity Clyde, the 18-year-old girlfriend of Wendy’s son—were found dead Wednesday evening after officials received a call about a woman lying in a pool of blood.According to KABC, officials said they died of blunt force trauma and strangulation. Stabbing was also present, but it’s unclear if a knife was used.The father of one of the victims reportedly walked into the home while Guzman and McCloud were still there—but the pair fled the scene in Clyde’s car, which was also found in Las Vegas.A family member of Araiza, Cheryl Mead, said they were trying to get Guzman to move out of the house. “I guess that this is how she retaliated, which is pretty horrific,” Mead told KABC.Pust told reporters that police still didn’t know if the “horrific, egregious” crime was “interrupted” or if Guzman and McCloud were going to continue their alleged killing spree. According to news station KCAL 9, he said the investigation was still active.Guzman’s mother said the women let her stay in the home so her daughter could get back on her feet, and claimed Guzman was scared of McCloud. She also told KCAL 9 that her daughter was previously asked to leave other homes and did so without incident. “We can’t be more sorry to the families that have lost their family members,” she said.Guzman and McCloud face three counts of murder and are currently being held on $2 million bail at a Nevada jail. Police say they will soon be extradited to Riverside County, California.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

    * Muriel Bowser says former New York mayor will ‘cast widest net’ * Nevada caucuses: crucial ‘first in the west’ contest – live * Trump calls John Bolton a ‘traitor’ and wants to block his bookDemocrats are not going to find the perfect candidate to take on Donald Trump, the Washington DC mayor Muriel Bowser said in an interview published on Saturday, so they should consider backing Mike Bloomberg – as she has done.“We can say that we’re looking for the perfect candidate,” the only woman to be re-elected as Washington mayor told the Washington Post. “News flash: you’re not going to find him or her.“I’m not going to support a disreputable person, but I do want to make sure the person that we get behind has a programme to win that’s going to cast the widest net.”Bloomberg is a three-term mayor of New York City with a personal business and media empire and a fortune of around $60bn.He will not compete in any Democratic primary until Super Tuesday, 3 March, but he has surged in the polls behind huge spending on advertising, visibility in national coverage and stumbles by the former vice-president Joe Biden, previously the leading candidate from the moderate wing of the party.Bloomberg’s spell in the spotlight has attracted Trump’s attention but it has been harsh too: past comments about women, minorities and even farmers have been unearthed, published and pilloried and his use of the discriminatory “stop-and-frisk” policing policy while in office in New York – and subsequent defence of it – has been roundly slammed.Bloomberg kicked off his campaign with an apology for the policy, which was ruled unconstitutional in 2013.Bowser, who is African American, told the Post: “He can’t change history. He can only change what happens in the future.“And I think what’s important is that a real agenda affecting those young men who were targeted by these practices is what everybody is looking for.”The 47-year-old also said no candidate in the Democratic field had a perfect record on race, citing the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders’ and Biden’s votes for a 1994 crime bill that contained harsh provisions which disproportionately affected minority Americans.“I would argue that more people are in jail because of that crime bill than stop-and-frisk,” Bowser said.In a pointed message given the publication of the interview on the day of the Nevada caucuses, which Sanders was expected to win, Bowser said the party should be wary of fielding a nominee committed to tax increases and nationalised healthcare.“That is a tough message up against Donald Trump, who is presiding over a roaring economy,” Bowser said. “Even if he inherited it [from Barack Obama], he’s presiding over it. And many people won’t understand how taking away their health insurance or raising their taxes is a good thing.”Trump answered Bowser indirectly on Saturday, posting a video to his Twitter account in which he boasted about the economy and called claims he inherited it from his predecessor “the biggest con job I ever heard”.Bloomberg has admitted to some of his reported remarks about women and released testimony from female employees of his eponymous company.But in a torrid first appearance on the debate stage, in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, the Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren attacked him in stinging terms, comparing him to Trump for calling women “fat broads and horse-faced lesbians”.“I look at allegations as just that,” Bowser told the Post. “I think what Mike has said is that he’s used crude language. And I’m pretty sure that all of us can imagine Wall Street 30 years ago, male-dominated. And I think we would all be very naive if we thought a lot of crude remarks didn’t happen.”She added: “Now, as an African American woman who’s been in a lot of rooms, we can talk about discrimination. But one of the deadliest forms of discrimination is to be ignored and to be invisible and to not be heard.”Bowser described a close relationship with Bloomberg since 2014, when she first ran for mayor. According to the Post, Bowser backed a Bloomberg White House run after the California senator Kamala Harris dropped out of contention.Harris and the New Jersey senator Cory Booker, the other African American in the original field, consulted Bowser before ending their campaigns, the Post said. Only Bloomberg asked for her endorsement.Bowser said she thought mayors were well-qualified to run for president and commended Pete Buttigieg, the 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who has made a strong run in the moderate lane of the primary.But, she said, Buttigieg has had “difficulty translating his small-town experience into [the] big time”.Bowser is a national co-chair of Bloomberg’s campaign and has appeared for him around the country. She refused to be drawn on whether she would accept an invitation to be his running mate, should he win the nomination.“I have the best job in Washington,” she said. “And I’m here to help Mike win the nomination and defeat Donald Trump.”
