Some quick news hits
Author: Raine    Date: 07/08/2019 13:04:58

Good Morning! We're having a bit of a weather event this morning. The doggos aren't really pleased and I am hoping things don't flood. I am pretty sure we have all heard about the arrest of Jeffery Epstein. It appears this time he might not be so lucky. He's expected in court this morning.

Something else seems to be bubbling up this morning. The Associated Press is reporting that a Federal Grand Jury is probing him.
A federal grand jury in New York is investigating top Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy, examining whether he used his position as vice chair of President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee to drum up business deals with foreign leaders, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press and people familiar with the matter.

A wide-ranging subpoena the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn recently sent to Trump’s inaugural committee seeks records relating to 20 individuals and businesses. All have connections to Broidy, his investment and defense contracting firms, and foreign officials he pursued deals with — including the current president of Angola and two politicians in Romania.


This promises to be another interesting week. Let's get it rolling!

and
Raine

He's got a primary challenger.

I am glad he's dropping out.

We have too many people at this point.

Scoop, for those of us who find reading Reddit posts to headache-inducing what is the executive summary?

Eva Mozes Kor passed away.



I was honored to listen to her speak twice and met her once when I purchased some books by her. She shows that we can survive and forgive others, if only for our own sake. May her memory be for a blessing.

I had the "joy" of yard work here. If I am indeed in this area for my current job or one in the area, I will try to be out of my brother's house before December. (I do have several out of state applications.)

Question:

Has Jeffery Epstein ever been married?

His wiki page indicates: no.

I was going to ask you if you have ever encountered Mrs. Kor. Now I know you had.

She made a profound impression on me. I will miss her and I wish that her legacy continues to shape our world.
