The Maryland canine officer who pleaded on Newsmax TV for a pardon from President Donald Trump has received her Christmas wish.

The former Prince George’s County Police canine officer Stephanie Mohr, convicted in 2001 of a federal Civil Rights violation, served 10 years in prison after her police dog bit a burglar during an arrest in 1995.

“I am incredibly grateful to the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund for standing by my side and never abandoning me,” Mohr said in a statement provided by LELDF to Newsmax on Wednesday. “Without LELDF and its donors and loyal supporters, I honestly don’t think this pardon would have happened.”

Mohr’s pardon petition was aided by LELDF President Jason Johnson, and she made an impassioned plea to the president on “John Bachman Now” earlier this month.

“This has been a long, hard slog for Stephanie Mohr, who served her complete sentence of 10 years – one year for each of the 10 stitches it took to heal the wounds on an escaping burglar’s leg,” said Johnson, a former police officer and Deputy Commissioner, in the release.

“Stephanie lost a decade of her life, she lost her career, she missed her infant son’s formative years – all for doing her job, exactly as she was trained,” Johnson added. “LELDF is proud to have stood by Stephanie Mohr through appeals, post-conviction motions and, now, her successful application to President Donald Trump.”

After a series of newspaper articles about alleged brutality by the Prince George’s County Police Department, federal prosecutors indicted Mohr one day before the Statute of Limitations was set to expire on a five-year-old incident during which an undocumented immigrant was caught on the roof of a commercial printing business.

Officer Mohr, who had a 2-year-old son at home, said she was scapegoated to satisfy The Washington Post after an FBI investigation into alleged brutality failed to result in any other convictions. Her first trial acquitted her of one charge and ended in a hung jury on the other, but a second trial brought a conviction and the 10-year sentence.

Mohr said that despite her conviction and incarceration, she and her son remain strong supporters of law enforcement and the police profession.

“Despite this ordeal, Adam intends to pursue a career in law enforcement,” Mohr said. “After all he’s been through and lost because of what happened to me, I couldn’t be prouder of him.”

New details about Trump-McCarthy shouting match show Trump refused to call off the rioters

Washington (CNN)In an expletive-laced phone call with House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy while the Capitol was under attack, then-President Donald Trump said the rioters cared more about the election results than McCarthy did.”Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are,” Trump said, according to lawmakers who were briefed on the call afterward by McCarthy.McCarthy insisted that the rioters were Trump’s supporters and begged Trump to call them off.Trump’s comment set off what Republican lawmakers familiar with the call described as a shouting match between the two men. A furious McCarthy told the President the rioters were breaking into his office through the windows, and asked Trump, “Who the f–k do you think you are talking to?” according to a Republican lawmaker familiar with the call.

The newly revealed details of the call, described to CNN by multiple Republicans briefed on it, provide critical insight into the President’s state of mind as rioters were overrunning the Capitol. The existence of the call and some of its details have been previously reported and discussed publicly by McCarthy.The Republican members of Congress said the exchange showed Trump had no intention of calling off the rioters even as lawmakers were pleading with him to intervene. Several said it amounted to a dereliction of his presidential duty.

“He is not a blameless observer, he was rooting for them,” a Republican member of Congress said. “On January 13, Kevin McCarthy said on the floor of the House that the President bears responsibility and he does.”Speaking to the President from inside the besieged Capitol, McCarthy pressed Trump to call off his supporters and engaged in a heated disagreement about who comprised the crowd. Trump’s comment about the would-be insurrectionists caring more about the election results than McCarthy did was first mentioned by Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, a Republican from Washington state, in a town hall earlier this week, and was confirmed to CNN by Herrera Beutler and other Republicans briefed on the conversation.”You have to look at what he did during the insurrection to confirm where his mind was at,” Herrera Beutler, one of 10 House Republicans who voted last month to impeach Trump, told CNN. “That line right there demonstrates to me that either he didn’t care, which is impeachable, because you cannot allow an attack on your soil, or he wanted it to happen and was OK with it, which makes me so angry.””We should never stand for that, for any reason, under any party flag,” she added, voicing her extreme frustration: “I’m trying really hard not to say the F-word.””I think it speaks to the former President’s mindset,” said Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, an Ohio Republican who also voted to impeach Trump last month. “He was not sorry to see his unyieldingly loyal vice president or the Congress under attack by the mob he inspired. In fact, it seems he was happy about it or at the least enjoyed the scenes that were horrifying to most Americans across the country.”As senators prepare to determine Trump’s fate, multiple Republicans thought the details of the call were important to the proceedings because they believe it paints a damning portrait of Trump’s lack of action during the attack. At least one of the sources who spoke to CNN took detailed notes of McCarthy’s recounting of the call.Trump and McCarthy did not respond to requests for comment.It took Trump several hours after the attack began to eventually encourage his supporters to “go home in peace” — a tweet that came at the urging of his top aides.At Trump’s impeachment trial Friday, his lawyers argued that Trump did in fact try to calm the rioters with a series of tweets while the attack unfolded. But his lawyers cherry-picked his tweets, focusing on his request for supporters to “remain peaceful” without mentioning that he also attacked then-Vice President Mike Pence and waited hours to explicitly urge rioters to leave the Capitol.A source close to Pence said Trump’s legal team was not telling the truth when attorney Michael van der Veen said at the trial that “at no point” did the then-President know his vice president was in danger.Asked whether van der Veen was lying, the source said, “Yes.” Former Pence aides are still fuming over Trump’s actions on January 6, insisting he never checked on the vice president as Pence was being rushed from danger by his US Secret Service detail.It’s unclear to what extent these new details were known by the House Democratic impeachment managers or whether the team considered calling McCarthy as a witness. The managers have preserved the option to call witnesses in the ongoing impeachment trial, although that option remains unlikely as the trial winds down.The House Republican leader had been forthcoming with his conference about details of his conversations with Trump on and after January 6.Trump himself has not taken any responsibility in public.

Donald Trump Bans The Mention Of Richard Nixon In Final Days

Published

on

By

The twice-impeached Trump repeatedly has made his policy clear on Nixon, the last president to resign.

The new He Who Must Not Be Named is the late President Richard Nixon ― at least in the final days of the Trump administration.
Soon-to-be-ex President Donald Trump has ordered advisers not to mention the name of Nixon, who resigned in 1974 under the cloud of the Watergate scandal, CNN reported Thursday. In separate conversations with aides, Trump declared a ban on any utterance of his disgraced predecessor ― even cursing out one adviser and demanding “never to bring up the ex-president ever again,” according to CNN.
Trump has shut down calls that he resign with just days to go in his own disgraced presidency. He told people that he didn’t trust that Vice President Mike Pence would pardon him like President Gerald Ford did when he replaced Nixon, CNN reported.

Carl Bernstein, whose Watergate reportage for The Washington Post helped lead to Nixon’s downfall, told Anderson Cooper on Thursday (watch the video above) that Trump’s final days appear to be nothing like Nixon’s ― resignation or not.

In his final days “Nixon was not a deluded, deranged, out-of-control president of the United States who has to be restrained in a constitutional straitjacket, which is really what is going on right now,” Bernstein said. “The military won’t heed his orders, we know something about that. People around him are trying to restrain him because they think he is dangerous.”

On the other hand, Nixon, “though he was drunk part of the time,” turned to introspection at what he had done ― something Trump would be unlikely to do, Bernstein said.

While Nixon deserved his fate, Bernstein had even harsher words for Trump, who finds his ruinous presidency indelibly stained by the Capitol riot he incited.

The reporter called him a “seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol, which is really what occurred. He encouraged it.”

It was Trump, ironically, who earlier in his presidency invoked Nixon’s name as a way of bragging about his strategy to subvert the Russia investigation. 

“I learned a lot from Richard Nixon,” Trump said in spectacularly un-self-aware commentary in May on “Fox & Friends.” “Don’t fire people.”

“I learned a lot. I study history,” he continued. “And the firing of everybody — I should’ve in one way, but I’m glad I didn’t, because look at the way it turned out. They’re all a bunch of crooks and they got caught.”

Capitol Riots

Captain America’s co-creator’s son says Capitol Hill rioters misrepresented the superhero

Rioters enter the US Capitol’s Rotunda on January 6.

The son of the co-creator of comic book hero Captain America said he was “appalled” and “disgusted” when he saw Capitol Hill rioters wearing t-shirts and shields referencing the superhero.”Captain America is the absolute antithesis of Donald Trump,” Neal Kirby told CNN’s Jake Tapper in a statement Wednesday.”Where Captain America is selfless, Trump is self-serving. Where Captain America fights for our country and democracy, Trump fights for personal power and autocracy.”

On Wednesday, January 6, hundreds of President Donald Trump’s supporters forced their way inside the Capitol during the ceremonial counting of the Electoral College vote to confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.While watching videos of the riot, Kirby said he “noticed someone in a Trump/Capt. America t-shirt” and believes he “caught a quick glance of someone with a Captain America shield” — images he said he finds disgusting

 Captain America for Timely Comics, Marvel’s predecessor and the comic was a huge hit during World War II.”In World War II, patriotic soldier Steve Rogers, recipient of the ‘Super Soldier Serum,’ became the living symbol of freedom, Captain America,” according to Marvel Comics. “Left for dead while frozen in ice, the star-spangled hero with an indestructible shield awoke years later to continue his never-ending battle for liberty.”Captain America stood up for what was right without backing down, and for the underdog, Kirby said.”My father, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, the creators of Captain America and WWII veterans, would be absolutely sickened by these images,” Kirby said. “These images are an insult to both their memories.
