Bill Cosby found guilty on all sex assault charges

Bill Cosby found guilty on all sex assault charges

Three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Count 1 - Without her consent. Guilty

Count 2 - While she was unconscious or unaware. Guilty

Count 3 - While she was intoxicated or drugged. Guilty

Edit to add

The verdict comes on the charges by Andrea Constand. Constand is a former employee with the Temple University women's basketball team, and she testified that Cosby, a Temple trustee, drugged and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home to ask for career advice.

At trial, five other women testified to similar assaults by Cosby. More than 60 women have accused him.

Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years. The judge has discretion to sentence consecutively or concurrently, or to reduce those numbers.

Bless you, Hannibal Buress

Up to 30 years possible. Cosby is 80 years old.

He testified under oath during a deposition that he gave the victim three benyadryl (more than one dose), told her it was an herbal supplement, and then had sex with her after it kicked in.

He testified in his deposition that he didn’t “hear her say anything” and didn’t “feel her saying anything. And so I continue to go in the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection. I am not stopped.”

Even if you take Cosby at his word, he drugged a woman with an intoxicant and then had sex with her without consent.

Aw no way. He was always posting on reddit. :(

Not just posting, but interacting. He talked to people. Participated in reddit gift exchange. He was a good dude with a great sense of humor.

Looks like he may have committed suicide, he was put on psychiatric hold earlier this month.

This is really upsetting, he seemed like a great person and was pretty active on here.

Depression sucks so much.

Never feel ashamed to get help.

Holy moly, nobody saw that coming. R.I.P.

His reps issued a statement, "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given."

Just 28 years old, RIP.

I mean, the dude stopped doing 90 minute sets for $1 million a pop because he was so deep into his addiction he couldn't keep it together for a festival set once a month.

When the biggest name in big room EDM walks away at pinnacle of his popularity and earnings, you know something is seriously wrong.

Way too young, what a sad ending for one of the foremost figures of EDM for years.

U.S. has taken decision to strike Syria: Fox News | Top News

Buckle up, shits going down

Can someone try to give me an unbiased summary about why we did this?

Christ. Here we go. Russia promised to retaliate against the source of the launch. Tense times folks.

Edit: Source for those interested.

Edit 2: Syrians tried to retaliate to no effect. All targets were designated as free of Russian forces. Russia was NOT notified before attacks but post launch calls via de-escalation hotlines have heen made. Source, gen. Jospeh Dunford during Pentagon briefing.

Edit 3: Syria shot down 13 tomahawk missles during the strike on Damascus, Gen. Dunford refuses to comment.

Edit 4: Manned aircraft were involved. Again, chairman of JCoC Dunford.

Trump says the US has launched "precision strikes" on targets with chemical weapons in Syria. The US is working with French and British allies.

The President says the US is prepared for a "sustained response until the Syrians stop using chemical weapons."

Reuters is reporting several explosions in Damascus

Pentagon confirms both ships and manned aircraft were used in strikes.

Sounds like no one was seriously hurt. Title had me thinking they may have been killed and opted for an impact death rather than burning. Glad my first thought was wrong.

Very scary stuff.

the video looked pretty scary

Terrifying. Those guys were trying so hard to help. God bless.

F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen

F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen

Can you imagine what kind of evidence you have to have to 1) get a no knock raid approved 2) on a lawyer 3) to the president? Holy shit.

The raid came after federal prosecutors in New York City obtained a search warrant following a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.

FBI agents seized records relating to several issues, including a $130,000 payment Cohen has said he made to porn star Stormy Daniels.

In addition to records related to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, FBI agents also seized emails, tax documents and business records.

This is quite an aggressive move to raid the president's lawyer.

"Says who?"

Trump last Thursday: "Michael is my attorney."

The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records.

This is the best infrastructure week ever.

UPDATES:

CBS's Pat Milton reports the FBI stormed not only Michael Cohen's office, but also his New York residence, seizing documents and other material, as authorized in a search warrant.

Confirmed by Vanity Fair - Cohen is living at Loews Regency hotel; some information was given to FBI by Mueller investigation

A handful of [Agents] remained upstairs for several hours, according to a source familiar with the situation. “Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said in a statement. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”

CNN reports Trump is watching TV coverage of the raid

Warrants were executed at the direction of the Manhattan US Attorney's Office on his office, home and hotel room

NBC reporting this was a court-authorized search, which means there was sufficient probable cause for a federal judge to agree that a search involving the President’s personal attorney could occur without any advance notice to Cohen.

Bloomberg reporting Mueller cleared going to FBI with information on Cohen through Rosenstein.

Mueller brought information involving Cohen to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who decided that the matter should be handled by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York rather than by Mueller’s team, according to a person familiar with the matter.

FBI STILL at the Loews Regency

WaPo reporting "Investigators took Cohen’s computer, phone and personal financial records as part of the search of his office at Rockefeller Center, the person said."

Speaking of his 30Rock office - the firm says their business has concluded with Mr. Cohen

Source close to WH saying the WH is treating this as "Mueller has gone rogue"

Trump RESPONDS!

BONUS LEVITY

Cohen joking about his office being raided in 2016

The CEO of his campaign is facing life in jail, his national security adviser was working with Turkey to kidnap a US permanent resident, and his lawyer was just raided by the FBI. Ignoring everything else that has come from this special counsel, it's crazy that so many are still trying to dismiss it as a witch hunt.
