Steve Bannon could go to jail if he won’t talk to Congress about Russia

  Steve Bannon could go to jail if he won’t talk to Congress about Russia Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has been refusing to answer lawmakers’ questions about the Trump-Russia investigation — and they’re so tired of it that they’re considering holding him in contempt of Congress. The House Intelligence committee could vote on whether or not to discipline Bannon as early as Monday. If lawmakers vote yes, there are three different kinds of contempt charges they could use. First, there’s “inherent contempt” — which could result in Bannon being held in Congress’s very own jail if he refuses to comply with their subpoena.

Zervos, a former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” is the only one of about a dozen women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct shortly before the 2016 presidential election to have brought legal action. Her complaint details phone calls and meetings that could be used to verify — or refute — her allegations, and her attorneys could call other accusers to the stand to describe Trump’s behavior. Zervos declined to be interviewed.

The White House referred questions about Trump’s whereabouts at the time to his private lawyer Marc Kasowitz, who did not respond to a request for comment. He has previously dismissed the claim as politically motivated.

In her complaint, Zervos said she asked to meet with Trump that month at Trump Tower in New York, seeing him as a “potential employer.” Zervos claims Trump dubbed her his “OC Angel,” referring to her California home county, and invited her to meet him for dinner in Los Angeles. The suit details phone calls from Trump to make arrangements.

The complaint says Trump’s security guard escorted Zervos to a hotel bungalow, where Trump showed little interest in dining out: Instead, the complaint alleges, he kissed and groped her, suggested they watch “telly-telly,” and led her to the bedroom where “he began to press his genitals against her.”

He suggested Zervos let her mortgage “go into default,” the complaint says: “He said that it was a mini version of what he does.”

The old hag, Jessica Leads, who claims Trump "groped" her on an airplane is coming under a great deal of well-earned scrutiny I am not surprised that one of the accusers is a fake!! I am still going to vote for a pig who spoke nasty words because I CAN NOT vote for a liar and her CRIMINAL actions.

The accuser , who chooses to go by pseudonym Jane Doe, was 13 at the time. “Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” said attorney Lisa Bloom.

They met briefly the next day at his Rancho Palos Verdes golf course, the complaint alleges. Soon after, Zervos claims, the general manager offered her a position at “half the salary” she was seeking.”

A job with the Trump Organization would have been a change from the challenges of her parents’ beach town restaurant work. Court records show they ran into financial problems when Zervos was a teenager.

“They went bankrupt at the same time that Donald Trump did,” Zervos told the Orange County Register in 2006 in an interview about her reality TV role. “He came out a little better than we did.”

In 2005, Zervos joined her brother, Shado, in purchasing a $900,000 house in a new development, according to property records. That same year, on an overcast Saturday morning, Zervos answered NBC’s call for “a new group of a---kissing b-school, type A personalities to compete as part of The Apprentice 5.”

The first of 17 nationwide tryouts was held five minutes from Sunny’s, the diner owned by Zervos’s family, where a Trump impersonator cajoled applicants hoping to compete for a $250,000 one-year contract with Trump’s company.

Trump backs improved background checks on gun buys: WHouse

  Trump backs improved background checks on gun buys: WHouse US President Donald Trump signaled support Monday for a bipartisan effort to improve a national system of background checks for gun purchases in the wake of the Florida school shooting. "While discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the president is supportive of efforts to improve the Federal background check system," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.Trump has come under intensifying pressure to act after a teenage gunman went on a rampage at a high school in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday, killing 17 people.

Trump took aim at Democratic lawmakers who refused to applaud during his speech last week when he mentioned his achievements during his first year in office, a reaction he called “un-American.” “If they ever took over, your taxes would go way up and you would see some bad things happen.”

Trump , who has claimed a wealth of billion, promised before taking office that he would donate his 0,000 annual salary. So far, he has donated it in quarterly chunks, all to various federal agencies. The Trump accuser who refuses to go away .

Dan Simon, then a data company salesman, said he met Zervos in line and that they were interviewed by show producer Mark Burnett, who asked provocative questions.

“Should prostitution be legalized?” Simon recalled Burnett asking. Burnett seemed to zero in on Zervos as she gave answers that Simon remembered being “liberal as liberal can be.”

Selection for the show did not guarantee a big payoff. Scott Salyers, the supervising casting producer, said contestants received modest stipends.

When the show began on the tarmac by Trump’s jet, Zervos joined a team assigned to sell Sam’s Club memberships.

Trump turned on her in a boardroom meeting when Zervos spoke up to defend her team leader.

“Why should you interrupt me when I’m knocking the hell out of him?” Trump demanded. “By interrupting me, what are you doing to yourself?”

“I’m being truthful,” Zervos said, “and I’ll always be truthful.”

“How stupid is that, right?” Trump asked.

“It’s not stupid,” Zervos retorted. “If I stay, I want to stay on the truth,” she said, prompting Trump’s famous response:

“You know what, Summer? You’re fired!” he said.

Zervos was the first contestant banished to a New Jersey apartment complex to wait until shooting ended. She then returned to Sunny’s.

According to her complaint, Zervos contacted Trump again in 2009, 2010 and 2016.

We don't' like to say we are a 'backward' country so let's just say we're suffering from a case of temporary insanity," he added.

Her suit is not about fame, nor was her accusation politically motivated, her attorneys have said. She is asking for $2,914 in economic losses as well as unspecified emotional damages.

Zervos’s critics point to an email the Trump campaign posted, in which her cousin who worked at Sunny’s speculates that “Summer’s actions are nothing more than an attempt to regain the spotlight at Mr. Trump’s expense.” The cousin, John Barry, did not return phone calls.

The Zervos family’s struggles continued, according to public records. Property records indicate that Deutsche Bank initiated foreclosure proceedings in 2009 against Zervos and her brother. Sunny’s moved out of a downtown location in 2010, back to a more modest mall. Zervos’s father and brother did not respond to messages.

Her family and close friends refer inquiries to Gloria Allred, her attorney. “Summer and her family are not doing any interviews,” Allred wrote.

Some residents here who have known or worked with Zervos for years are following her confrontation with Trump. They say she often referred to her Trump connection after returning from the filming to work at Sunny’s, her family’s diner.

“She was a small-town girl, [and] all of a sudden people knew who she is,” recalled Amanda Hesser, a former restaurant server.
