  • If Things Go South For Trump On Election Day, They'll Go South Very, Very Fast

    If Joe Biden is elected president, outgoing President Donald Trump is likely to have more days in court than he ever dreamed possible. Lacking his current presidential protections, Trump will face multiple investigations over whether he committed fraud in his businesses--and as an individual. According to CNN, Trump also faces defamation lawsuits sparked by his denials of accusations made by women who have alleged he assaulted them. If Trump wins, he may be able to run out the statute of limitations, which for some crimes in New York state law is five to six years. Or, he could simply continue enjoying the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel opinion that says a sitting president can't be indicted.

  • Court To Hear Cosby's Appeal

    Actor, comedian, and incarcerated sex felon Bill Cosby is to have another day in court. Newser reports the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will hear Bill Cosby's appeal of his felony sexual assault conviction on December 1, 2020. Once known as 'America's Dad,' the 83-year-old is serving a three- to 10-year prison term. While a lower appeals court had upheld his conviction, the state's high court agreed this year to review two key issues in the case. One involves the trial judge's decision to let prosecutors call five other accusers to testify about long-ago encounters with Cosby at his 2018 trial. Also at issue is whether the jury should have heard evidence that Cosby had given quaaludes to women in the past.
