EXCLUSIVE: An attorney for Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life activist from Pennsylvania, condemned the recent FBI arrest of his client as an abuse of power from President Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) intended to send an intimidating message to pro-life Americans.

“Americans should not have to fear that they’re going to have 20 federal agents pounding their door down and dragging them out as they’re trying to enjoy their morning coffee,” Peter Breen, senior counsel at the Thomas More Society, told Fox News Digital. “This is an outrageous abuse of the great powers that the American people entrust to the federal government.”

The FBI arrested Houck, 48, Friday in front of his wife and seven

According to Mathias’ lawyer Yassine Bouzrou, Mathias Pogba, 32, has been in prison since Saturday night.

“We will challenge this decision and ask for him to be released,” Bouzrou told CNN on Sunday.

The Paris Public Prosecutor’s Office also confirmed to CNN on Sunday that Mathias Pogba has been placed in temporary detention.

Paul Pogba, who plays for Italy’s Serie A side Juventus, made a claim of extortion against his brother last month, in a statement obtained by CNN via his legal team.

Paul Pogba’s statement came after his brother had released a series of videos on Instagram in English, French, Spanish and Italian in which he claimed that he would make “great revelations” about the conduct of his brother and Rafaela Pimenta, his agent.

Paul Pogba’s statement, which was signed by his lawyers, his mother Yeo Moriba and Pimenta, read: “Unfortunately, Mathias Pogba’s recent social media posts are not

The family of the woman whom freed prisoner Adnan Syed was convicted of killing is furious about the way his recent release was handled — and claim they were left completely out of the process, their attorney said Tuesday.

Attorney Steve Kelly says the family of murder victim Hae Min Lee felt betrayed by the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office’s decision to spring Syed — who spent some two decades in prison for allegedly strangling the teen before a podcast highlighted problems with his case.

“Whether or not Adnan is guilty is beside the point,” Kelly said in an interview on CNN.

“This is what they have been told for decades upon decades. And the issue is nobody wants to find out who killed Hae more than her brother and her mom. What happened yesterday … they were completely excluded from the process. This is a preordained agreement between the state’s

The Des Moines man seen at the front of a group of rioters inside the United States Capitol asked a federal judge for a new defense team. The request came from Jensen before jury selection started Monday morning, stating he and his lawyer disagreed on certain things over time.Jensen also said that he had only seen three videos in his discovery for the case: his interview with the FBI and two videos of him inside. He told Judge Timothy Kelly he had another defense attorney that was willing to take the case. Kelly sealed the court and spoke to Jensen and his current counsel in private. He then denied the request, saying it would have delayed the trial due to a new potential counsel not reviewing the entire case for a long period of time. He also said the case trial date had been set since February, and there was …

Kellye SoRelle, a self-described general counsel for the right-wing militia group the Oath Keepers, pleaded not guilty Friday to several charges relating to the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol.

SoRelle faces four charges, including obstruction of an official proceeding and obstructing justice by telling others to delete information from their phones.

Prosecutors say they do not plan to add SoRelle, who took a photo with group leader Stewart Rhodes in front of the Capitol that day, to any of the larger indictments charging members of the Oath Keepers with a seditious conspiracy. The Justice Department also noted that there are “numerous witnesses who talk about” SoRelle who are part of the larger Oath Keepers case, adding that there is “voluminous” discovery for SoRelle and her counsel to go through.

Prosecutor Jeffrey Nestler also asked Judge Amit Mehta to heavily restrict SoRelle’s internet access, citing the

The widow of accused “Duck Sauce Killer” Glenn Hirsch endured decades of “sadistic” beatings and rape and wouldn’t have dared prevent him from storing guns and ammo in her Queens apartment, her lawyer argues in a new court filing.

The lawyer for Dorothy Hirsch offered the horrific details from her marriage to bolster his argument she should have never been charged with gun possession after police found firearms and ammo stashed in her apartment.

“Glenn’s acts of brutality against Dorothy (before and during their marriage) included sadistic and violent sexual abuse, striking, cutting and menacing her with weapons, punching her, slapping her, threatening to kill her, extortion and contempt,” lawyer Mark Bederow wrote .

Prosecutors knew about the history of abuse when they arrested her — they sent over a detailed list of Hirsch’s past domestic arrests to the judge in his case on June 3, the same day his

A dark joke has begun circulating among lawyers following the many legal travails of former President Donald Trump: MAGA actually stands for “making attorneys get attorneys.”

Over six years and nine major investigations by Congress, the Justice Department and local prosecutors, as Trump has managed to avoid removal from the presidency and indictment, it has become clear that serving as one of his lawyers is a remarkably risky job — and one that can involve considerable legal exposure. Time after time, his attorneys have been asked to testify as witnesses to potential crimes — or evaluated as possible criminal conspirators themselves.

While the consequences his lawyers faced were extraordinary when Trump was in the White House, the dangers have only intensified since he left office and have become increasing acute in recent weeks, as the former president has come under scrutiny in two different Justice Department investigations and has been
