" SBA List has also seen its advertising removed by a media company in the past. Washington, D.C., radio station WTOP pulled a pro-life ad in January that mentioned the organ harvesting videos because station employees disagreed with the language used in the ad. The video was uploaded to the site as CMP founder David Daleiden is under indictment by the state of California. NAF had previously obtained an injunction barring the release of footage taken from the convention and several of the participants featured in CMP videos were listed as Doe victims of illicit recording in the indictment. The investigation was initiated by now-Senator Kamala Harris and charges were filed by her successor, Attorney General Xavier Becerra; the pair received $47,000 in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups over the course of their careers.

Hundreds of women were brought from Thailand to the US and forced to be modern-day sex slaves, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday that charges high-level members of what authorities called a sophisticated sex-trafficking ring that concealed millions of dollars in earnings. The indictment brings the total number of people charged to 38, making it one of the largest sex-trafficking prosecutions in the US, said Acting US Attorney Gregory Brooker. Authorities say the...

But as De Niro/Madoff says in the movie, those investors – including prominent Jewish figures like Elie Wiesel and many religious charitieschose not to examine the suspiciously secretive way in which Madoff worked, and never questioned why it was that their returns were consistent as the market continued to fluctuate so wildly. The Wizard of Lies is an implicit indictment not only of the American economic system, which has since the 1980s become an out-of-control train careening from one crisis to another, but also a critical examination of the debased mores of the 1% with a strong Jewish component in the social process. The Krichinsky family in Avalon famously sits down to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with the full Turkey and trimmings, while the Madoffs entertain lavishly on the ritzy Long Island shore with Steak, Lobster, and Champagne.

But it is a request that increases demands on the host nations' already-beleaguered infrastructures and limited resources. And it comes as the Trump administration is proposing severe cuts in U.S. assistance for overseas refugees and programs targeting children in need. ‘US is very much going to take chargeSix years on since the United States first called on Assad to go, his hold on power serves as a bitter indictment of failed efforts to end the war. Having blamed former President Barack Obama for letting the crisis fester, Trump says he is increasing engagement. The administration announced it will arm Syrian Kurds fighting the Islamic State group, a step the Kurds long implored Obama to take. And Trump ordered airstrikes on a military base belonging to Assad's military after accusing it of using chemical weapons. “You've seen that they've actually militarily continued to look at Syria and when and if there's going to be a role there,” Haley said, referring to the Trump administration.

Purnama's two-year term was harsher than the suspended sentence the prosecution sought, prompting warnings that Islam is creeping into the politics and judiciary of the secular nation. Purnama's lawyers said withdrawing his appeal could give prosecutors space to appeal. "We don't want to intervene with the prosecution. They can go ahead," said one of the lawyers, I Wayan Sudirta, adding that Purnama's legal team had requested he be moved from prison to city or house confinement. It would not be the first time prosecutors had appealed against a tougher sentence than sought in the indictment, said another of his lawyers, Teguh Samudera. Head prosecutor Ali Mukartono could not immediately be reached for comment. — Reuters

Ukraine does not need a separate court that will deal with corruption cases, but rather a chamber in charge of this task within an exiting court, Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has said. Ukraine needs to create an anti-corruption chamber of judges that will deal with category A corruption cases. Regardless of which agency sends an indictment into court, in my opinion, these cases should be considered by a specialized chamber of judges, Lutsenko said during the Transparency International workshop on Ukraine's combating top-level corruption and recovering stolen assets in Kyiv on May 22. At the same time, he stressed that he was in favor of setting up such a chamber based on an existing criminal court. Legally nothing prevents us from creating such a specialized chamber... Judges in charge of this task should be from among the new judges elected based on a tender, Lutsenko added.

The trial opened on Monday of more than 220 suspects, including over two dozen former Turkish generals, accused of being among the ringleaders of the attempted coup last year aimed at ousting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey blames the attempted July 15 putsch on the US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, a claim he strongly denies. But Gulen is one of the 221 suspects named in the indictment. Gulen -- who lives in self-imposed exile in the United States -- is among nine of the 221 suspects who remain on the run with the remainder appearing in court. The suspects were paraded into the courtroom inside a prison complex in Sincan outside Ankara by security forces in front of television cameras, AFP correspondents said. Several dozen protesters holding Turkish flags booed at the suspects, shouting "we want the death penalty" with placards saying: "For the martyrs and veterans of July 15, we want the death penalty".

"We had been beautiful once, and we rose to a height too young too fast." Part music documentary and part blistering indictment of the state of the nation, "Promised Land" was shot during the 2016 presidential campaign. It sees a series of interviewees reflect on America's problems, from working-class residents in Presley's Mississippi hometown to Public Enemy rap star Chuck D and actors Alec Baldwin, Ashton Kutcher and Ethan Hawke. Trump looms large over the film, which intersperses footage of the then-candidate with performances from musicians crammed into the car as it trundles around the country. The symbolism is lost on no one when the handsome Rolls breaks down on the road. - Humanising Trump country - Jarecki has spent years interviewing people warning that America was broken, but he is not the only director at Cannes to tackle life on the margins.

On Fridays broadcast of MSNBCs All In, Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) commented on the New York Times report that President Trump called FBI Director James Comey a nutjob and told Russian officials that firing Comey relieved great pressure by stating Trump committed a classic case of obstruction of justice, a federal crime. Lieu said, Let me say that, we no longer just have smoke. We have a raging, 10-alarm fire at the White House. As a former prosecutor, what the president did, in firing James Comey, and then saying he did it to relieve pressure on himself because of the FBI investigation is a classic case of obstruction of justice, a federal crime. Anybody else who did something like this would be facing a federal indictment and a criminal trial. Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he cannot “forgive or forget” what Sweden has put him through, following an announcement by Swedish prosecutors that they have dropped their rape case against him. Assange has been living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012 under virtual house arrest to avoid being detained in connection with the Swedish rape investigation, which began seven years ago. He said he has suffered a “terrible injustice,” without ever being charged with a crime. Despite Friday's announcement in Sweden, the Australian-born former journalist and computer programmer remains at the Ecuadorean Embassy. British police say they will arrest him on a charge of jumping bail if he tries to leave. Assange also faces a possible sealed U.S. indictment against him. Open to talking with U.S. officials Speaking to reporters from the embassy's balcony, Assange said his legal team would reach out to British authorities.

Sudan's government says President Omar al-Bashir has chosen to skip a summit in Riyadh that U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to attend because Bashir does not want to upset Sudanese-American relations. Information Minister Ahmed Bilal says Khartoum recognizes that Bashir's indictment by the International Criminal Court makes it difficult for him to meet the U.S. president. "The situation of the president in the international community is linked to the ICC indictment, and that is sort of an embarrassment and we dont want to complicate things," he tells VOA's South Sudan in Focus. Bilal says that meeting Bashir might cause trouble for Trump, who is expected to decide whether to completely lift economic sanctions first imposed on Sudan by the United States in 1997. “If he met the president this would be an extra pressure and besides, it would be an opportunity for the opposition there to make some problems about lifting [of sanctions]," says Bilal.

On Thursdays broadcast of CNNs Situation Room, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated that she has not seen any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and that special counsel Robert Muellers investigation is the one that would bring forward solid evidence on which you could base a criminal case and indict someone. Anchor Wolf Blitzer asked, The last time we spoke, Senator, I asked you if you had actually seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and you said to me and Im quoting you know you said, Not at this time. Has anything changed since we spoke last? Feinstein answered, Well, not no, it hasnt. So, I would depend on this investigation that were talking about, that would bring forward any criminal activity, and, of course, has the right and the ability to charge people, select targets, look at them, bring about an indictment.

He hears no testimony in public and generally produces no report. If he decides to indict, the indictment is his report. If he decides that no indictment is warranted, his appropriate course of action is to simply say that, with no further comment. If he decides to produce a report, it likely to be one-sided, since prosecutors generally focus on evidence that points to guilt. A grand jury only hears one side: the prosecutor’s. Defense attorneys cannot question, and the accused—at this stage there’s been no official pronouncement on who exactly that person or people may be—do not have the right to have counsel present in the grand jury room. The role of a special counsel, like every prosecutor, is adversarial. Neither a criminal investigation nor a criminal trial is a search for truth. It may be a search for justice, but justice and truth are often incompatible as evidenced by the maxim that it is better to let 10 guilty people go free than for one innocent to be wrongly convicted.
