Giuliani: Trump Tower Meeting a Setup, Hints Hillary Clinton May Have Been Involved.
KEITH DAVIS JR. was supposed to die. He had been on the phone with his girlfriend when four police officers cornered him into a dimly lit garage in West Baltimore. They had mistaken him for a robbery suspect, and they mistook his phone for a gun. After yelling at him to drop the gun, they fired 44 rounds at him. “Baby, I’ma die,” he told his girlfriend over the phone. Then she heard him ask the officers, “Why y’all tryin’ to kill me?”
It was June 2015 and tensions in Baltimore had just started simmering after the death of Freddie Gray, who in April of that year had suffered a severed spine when officers loaded him handcuffed, shackled, and unrestrained into a police van. For days, Baltimore had been engulfed in protests and confrontations with police — what half the city called a riot and the other half an uprising. Baltimore police were under scrutiny: The state’s attorney, Marilyn Mosby, had pressed criminal charges against the officers involved in Gray’s death, and the Department of Justice had opened an investigation into the department’s use of force and discriminatory policing. Had he died, Davis would have been the first person killed by city police since Gray, and the 68th in less than a decade.
But Davis didn’t die. Instead he was taken to the hospital, unconscious and in critical condition, where he underwent an emergency surgery that left bullet fragments lodged in his neck and perilously close to his spine. Then, days after the surgery, he was taken to jail.

DeSantis led a racist campaign the poured million of dollars into painting Gillum as a corrupt politician.
That's how they roll. Any lie to stay in or gain power.

The Utah senator said he was appalled by revelations in the special counsel’s report about Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Friday he was “sickened” by some of the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report about the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia.
Romney, one of the few vocal GOP critics of President Donald Trump’s administration, said though he was happy the findings didn’t justify charging the president, he was appalled by revelations in the report, which was released in full Thursday.

A South Florida man is facing federal charges after authorities say he left threatening, racist voicemails for three Democratic members of Congress.
John Kless, of Tamarac, was arrested Friday on charges of making threatening communications over the threatening voicemails sent to Rep. Eric Swalwell of California, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, according to the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida.
The voicemails, described in prosecutors' criminal complaint, included racist slurs that refer to black people and Muslims, threats to the lives of the members of Congress and suggestions that the country will erupt in a civil war.
"Don't you worry, you government officials, will be in the graves where you ... belong," Kless allegedly said in one of the voicemails, after minimizing the impact of a deadly 2017 car attack at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Prosecutors said Kless, 49, made the calls to the politicians' Washington, D.C., offices on Tuesday morning. The complaint said Kless was also investigated in February for leaving profane and harassing voicemails for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Kless made his first appearance in federal court Friday morning. Attorney information wasn't available.

The world stopped for Beyoncé fans early Wednesday when the singer dropped her much-anticipated Netflix documentary alongside a surprise live album of her performance at last year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The album and the documentary, both titled “Homecoming,” capture Bey’s history-making performance ―she was the first black woman to headline the festival ― in a nearly two-hour set heavily rooted in black Southern tradition as part of a glorious celebration of the culture of historically black colleges and universities.
The documentary takes fans behind the scenes of the performance, which featured some 100 dancers, a full marching band and special guests that included husband Jay-Z, sister Solange Knowles and former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
“Homecoming” offers an intimate look at how Beyoncé prepared to headline the festival with candid footage of her family and professional life as the film “traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement,” according to Netflix.
After the festival, Beyoncé announced plans to give $100,000 to four historically black schools as part of her new scholarship program.
Beyoncé was originally set to headline Coachella in 2017, but delayed her performance after she welcomed twins, Sir and Rumi.
“I would dance and go off to the trailer and breastfeed the babies, the days I could I would bring the children,” Beyonce recalled in the documentary.
Netflix had been teasing the documentary for weeks, but fans were completely unprepared for the 40-track album, which includes classic hits like “Crazy In Love,” “Say My Name” and “Single Ladies,” alongside new offerings that include “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is considered to be the black national anthem.
The double drop caught the Beyhive completely unprepared, keeping fans up way past their bedtimes and getting just about everybody into formation. Many praised their queen for blessing us with some new music.

On Saturday evening, Trump called Carter to talk about it. It was the first time they'd spoken, Carter said. He said Trump told him that he is particularly concerned about how China is "getting ahead of us."
Carter said he agreed with Trump on this issue.
"And do you know why?" Carter said. "I normalized diplomatic relations with China in 1979. Since 1979, do you know how many times China has been at war with anybody? None. And we have stayed at war," he said. (China and Vietnam actually fought a brief border war in early 1979, weeks after U.S. relations with China were normalized.)
Carter said the United States is "the most warlike nation in the history of the world" due to a desire to impose American values on other countries, and he suggested that China is investing its resources into projects such as high-speed railroads instead of defense spending.
"How many miles of high-speed railroad do we have in this country?"
Zero, the congregation answered.
"We have wasted, I think, $3 trillion," Carter said, referring to American military spending. "China has not wasted a single penny on war, and that's why they're ahead of us. In almost every way.
"And I think the difference is if you take $3 trillion and put it in American infrastructure, you'd probably have $2 trillion left over. We'd have high-speed railroad. We'd have bridges that aren't collapsing. We'd have roads that are maintained properly. Our education system would be as good as that of, say, South Korea or Hong Kong.
