Schmitt is accused of confronting Jahangard and then intentionally hitting him. Schmitt argued that he hit Jahangard accidentally after the two men started to argue, and that Jahangard also threw a trash can at his car.

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.

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
