Laura Loomer, the far-right activist who staunchly defended dirty trickster Roger Stone and called herself “pro-white nationalism,” is back on Twitter. In 2018, the provocateur was suspended from the site after making a series of anti-Muslim statements about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and was kept off despite a 2020 run for the House in Florida’s 21st Congressional District. That same hear, she drew national attention for interrupting Twitter co-creator Jack Dorsey’s congressional hearing, calling for the site to “stop silencing conservative voices.” Her ceaseless efforts to spread disinformation also got her banned from Facebook, Instagram, as well financial services like Venmo and new Twitter owner Elon Musk’s own creation, Paypal. “After getting BANNED on Twitter in 2018, and being digitally exterminated on nearly every other social media site, payment processor, Uber, Lyft, Uber Eats, & my own bank, I’M BACK!!!!!,” Loomer tweeted Thursday, for the first time in four years. “@ElonMusk has finally unchained me from the doors of Twitter HQ!”
A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit brought against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman over the 2018 murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, responding to a directive from the Biden administration that the MBS be granted immunity in the case. U.S. District Judge John D. Bates wrote in a 25-page opinion that despite the “credible allegations” that MBS had a hand in the killing and the court’s own “uneasiness” with the decision, it was bound by the State Department’s November filing for immunity. The request argued that since MBS was recently appointed Saudi Arabia’s prime minister, he was immune from the suit as a “sitting head of government.” Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi’s fiancée, told CNN at the time that President Joe Biden had “betrayed his word, betrayed Jamal. History will not forget this wrong decision.” The lawsuit against MBS and 28 others was filed in Oct. 2020 by Cengiz and DAWN, the non-profit human rights group that Khashoggi founded prior to his death.
A 69-year-old British retiree has been arrested for the suspected murder of his wife in a small Spanish hamlet the couple had moved to just a month earlier. The man, who has not been named in accordance with Spanish laws, insisted that his 56-year-old wife had simply lost her balance and hit her head on the curb trying to get out of the car outside their Camposol home.
Prosecutors have recently urged a federal judge to hold Trump’s team in contempt of court for failing to comply with a May subpoena that ordered them to hand over all classified documents in Trump’s possession, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Despite repeated urgings from Justice Department lawyers, Judge Beryl A. Howell has yet to hold a hearing or rule on the request. The news suggests frustration is growing among prosecutors, who believe the Trump camp hasn’t fully cooperated with their investigation. The Trump team claimed in June that they had turned over all classified material—but they then hired an outside team who searched three more venues in recent weeks, including a storage unit owned by Trump, where another two classified documents were reportedly found. The Post reports that Trump’s team have also refused to designate a custodian of records who can attest to having returned all classified material.
New Twitter owner Elon Musk has fired the company’s deputy general counsel, James Baker, citing his role in the Hunter Biden laptop saga. “In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today,” Musk wrote on the platform. Shortly before the 2020 election, Twitter shut down sharing of a New York Post story about the laptop, with the company saying at the time that it violated its “hacked materials” policy. In recent days, Musk has been pitching a series of internal “revelations” about what happened that day at Twitter via Substack blogger Matt Taibbi, which have amounted to spirited arguments among high-level Twitter staff about its content moderation strategies—and whether the Hunter Biden laptop story rose to the level of action. Shortly after Musk’s announcement Tuesday, Taibbi reported that Baker was fired in large part due to his involvement in vetting the files before their release last week—apparently unbeknownst to Musk. Baker was previously FBI general counsel under Director James Comey, and played a key role in probing former President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia—a job which has made him a familiar boogeyman among right-wing commentators and politicians.
A Singaporean photographer’s claim of plagiarism over what she called a near-identical copy of her work was dismissed by a Luxembourg court in an “absurd” ruling over its “insufficient originality” this week, her lawyer told local outlets. In a Twitter statement, Zhang Jingna, the U.S.-based plaintiff, said she was “devastated” by the decision, writing that it set “a dangerous precedent” for European copyright law. The ruling comes six months after she first accused Jeff Dieschburg, an art student in Luxembourg, of copying a photograph she’d taken for a 2017 Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam cover. Dieschburg’s portrait, which Zhang claimed was an uncredited version of her work, was put up for sale after winning a prize at a state-supported biennale earlier this year. “Am I crazy or is this insane,” Zhang wrote in an Instagram caption alongside a side-by-side image of the two works in June, clarifying that she was “happy” to allow students to reference her work, “as long as it’s not for official portfolios, commercial gain, and always credited.” Zhang’s attorney, Vincent Wellens, confirmed to a Luxembourg news outlet that they would appeal the ruling.
Ex-President Donald Trump didn’t bother appealing the ruling that put an end to a special master’s review of material seized by the FBI from Mar-a-Lago. A federal appeals court recently ruled that Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon erred when she allowed a court-appointed outsider to review everything taken from Trump’s property, forcing the feds to put much of their investigation into classified documents on ice in the meantime. The appeals court’s ruling officially took effect on Thursday with no sign of an appeal from Trump’s team. The former president’s attorneys has initially pushed hard for the special master, arguing that an independent third party needed to determine if anything seized from Mar-a-Lago was privileged. Prosecutors opposed it, saying their filter team had already weeded out privileged material and returned it to Trump.
