Woman Who Threatened Nancy Pelosi During Capitol Riot Gets 2 Years In Prison

Pauline Bauer

A Pennsylvania restaurant owner who screamed death threats directed at then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while storming the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Tuesday to more than two years in prison.

Pauline Bauer was near Pelosi’s office suite on Jan. 6, 2021, when she yelled at police officers to bring out the California Democrat so the mob of Donald Trump supporters could hang her.

In January, U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden convicted Bauer of riot-related charges after hearing trial testimony without a jury. The judge sentenced her to two years and three months of imprisonment, giving her credit for the several months she already has served in jail, court records show.

Prosecutors had recommended a prison sentence of six years and six months for Bauer, 55, of Kane, Pennsylvania.


Trump lawyer said to have been waved off searching office for secret records

Evan Cocoran

Donald Trump’s lawyer tasked with searching for classified documents at Mar-a-Lago after the justice department issued a subpoena told associates that he was waved off from searching the former president’s office, where the FBI later found the most sensitive materials anywhere on the property.

The lawyer, Evan Corcoran, recounted that several Trump aides had told him to search the storage room because that was where all the materials that had been brought from the White House at the end of Trump’s presidency ended up being deposited.

Corcoran found 38 classified documents in the storage room. He then asked whether he should search anywhere else, like Trump’s office, but was steered away, he told associates. Corcoran never searched the office and told prosecutors the 38 papers were the extent of the material at Mar-a-Lago.


Donald Trump fought to save Texas ally Ken Paxton from impeachment. It didn't work.

Ken Paxton impeached despite Trump warningsIn the hours before the GOP-controlled legislature in Texas voted to impeach fellow Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton, former President Donald Trump repeatedly took to social media with a warning for anyone − and especially members of his own party − who opposed his longtime ally.

Trump lamented what he called the “very unfair process” used last weekend to oust one of the nation's most active state legal officials and vowed that he would "fight" any lawmakers who supported the impeachment.

In the end, a majority of Texas Republicans in the state's House of Representatives ignored the admonishments of a former president and party leader and voted overwhelmingly to impeach Paxton anyway. Of 85 Republicans in the chamber, 60 supported Paxton's impeachment.

TVNL Comment: Congrats to the Texas House Members who stood up to the bully. What enormous power he wields over so many chicken-hearted others.


Trump escalates attacks on judges amid increasing legal scrutiny

Trump escalates attacks on judges

As former President Trump’s legal problems mount, he is frequently lashing out at a familiar target: judges.

Trump has taken aim at the judge overseeing the civil case involving the writer E. Jean Carroll, deriding him as a “Clinton-appointed judge.”

The former president has also claimed the judge handling the hush money case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “hates” him.

It is not a new tactic for Trump, who throughout his presidency would question the motives or legitimacy of court rulings. But it is notable at a time when his 2024 campaign for the White House has included vows for “retribution” for those who feel they have been wronged by the government.

When Trump was indicted in Manhattan for his alleged role in a hush money scheme during the 2016 campaign, the former president wasted little time painting the New York state judge in the case as partisan.


Trump criticizes Texas Gov. Abbott for silence on impeachment of AG Ken Paxton

Trump/Abbott/PaxtonFormer President Trump chides Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for his silence on the impeachment of embattled Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

“MISSING IN ACTION!,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post on Saturday. “Where is the Governor of Texas on his Attorney General’s Impeachment?”

Abbott has been a prominent GOP figure and a staunch ally of Trump. Recently, he has drawn the ire of the Biden administration as he and other Republican governors in southern states have been busing migrants to northern, Democratic-led cities in recent months in protest of the end of Title 42.


McCarthy: Student loan payment pause ‘gone’ under debt ceiling deal

McCarthy ends student loan pause in deal

Speaker Kevin McCarthy said on Sunday described the student loan payment pause as “gone” as part of the debt ceiling deal announced by the California Republican and President Biden late Saturday night.

“The pause is gone within 60 days of this being signed. So that is another victory because that brings in $5 billion each month to the American public,” McCarthy told anchor Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday.”

McCarthy’s remarks came after he and Biden came to an agreement in principle late Saturday to cap spending and raise the debt ceiling.

“What the president did, he went unconstitutionally and said he was going to waive certain people part of their debt for student loan[s], but then he paused everybody’s student loan. So everybody who borrowed a student loan within 60 days of the signing is going to have to pay that back,” McCarthy said on Sunday.


U.S. Goes After Private Donations Made To Jan. 6 Rioters

 DOJ goes after donors to Jan6 rioters

Less than two months after he pleaded guilty to storming the U.S. Capitol, Texas resident Daniel Goodwyn appeared on Tucker Carlson’s then-Fox News show and promoted a website where supporters could donate money to Goodwyn and other rioters whom the site called “political prisoners.”

The Justice Department now wants Goodwyn to give up more than $25,000 he raised — a clawback that is part of a growing effort by the government to prevent rioters from being able to personally profit from participating in the attack that shook the foundations of American democracy.

An Associated Press review of court records shows that prosecutors in the more than 1,000 criminal cases from Jan. 6, 2021, are increasingly asking judges to impose fines on top of prison sentences to offset donations from supporters of the Capitol rioters.
