  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Sunday that one reason the whistleblower at the heart of the impeachment inquiry hasn’t been called by the House to testify is that President Donald Trump called the person a spy and threatened the whistleblower with the “death penalty.”With the Intel Committee wrapping up its public impeachment hearings last week, Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd asked Schiff on Sunday whether Schiff was going to be the House manager for impeachment. “That’s up to the speaker,” Schiff answered, adding that he didn’t want to get ahead of the process as they haven’t filed articles of impeachment yet.After Schiff said that the facts surrounding whether the president sought foreign interference in an election are not even being contested by Republicans, Todd then wondered aloud about Schiff’s position on having the whistleblower come forward.“I know where you are with the whistleblower and the leaf that you don’t need to hear from the whistleblower anymore,” the NBC News host stated. “You did pledge that the Intelligence Committee would hear from the whistleblower in some form or another? Are you going to fulfill that pledge?”Pelosi, Schiff Prep for GOP Impeachment ‘Stunts’ and Attempts to Out the WhistleblowerEarlier this month, when the Republicans requested that the whistleblower be included among the impeachment witnesses called to testify, Schiff argued that the person’s testimony would be “redundant and unnecessary.” The whistleblower’s attorney further informed the GOP that his client would only answer questions in writing.“We had a deep interest in having them testify,” Schiff told Todd. “Two things happened. One we were able to prove it with witnesses that had first-hand information and second the president and his allies effectively put that whistleblower’s life in danger.”“The president said the whistleblower and others should be treated as a traitor and a spy and we ought to use the penalty and that’s the death penalty,” the California lawmaker continued. “So here’s the thing, Chuck, we don’t need the whistleblower’s second-hand evidence. It would only serve to endanger this person and gratify the president’s desire for retribution and that is not a good enough reason to bring in the whistleblower.”In late September, after the whistleblower’s complaint was made public, the president told a group at a private event that the whistleblower was “close to a spy” and wanted to know who gave the information to the whistleblower.“You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart with spies and treason, right?” Trump added. “We used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”Trump has also repeatedly asked if Schiff should be arrested for treason, claiming the chairman “illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement” when he read a “parody” of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president. Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

  • The property tycoon father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid has been ordered by a judge to demolish his half-built $100 million Bel Air mega-mansion, which has been dubbed the "Starship Enterprise". Mohamed Hadid has been involved in a long legal battle over the palatial 30,000 sq ft residence after neighbours complained about its size. A judge in Los Angeles Superior Court decided it was a "clear and present danger" to other properties in the area. The ruling came after a structural engineer said supporting piles were not driven far enough into the ground underneath the hillside property. The judge said: "If this house came down the hill it would take a portion of the neighbourhood with it." Following the ruling Mr Hadid told TMZ the house "has not moved a millimetre! It has never been an imminent danger to the neighbours." The property developer  is the father of supermodel Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi Credit: E-PRESS / BACKGRID UK He also said many city inspectors had monitored the construction process since it began in 2012, and concerns were not raised until years later. The court heard demolition would take six months and cost several million dollars. It was the latest development in a long saga over the project, which was to include an IMAX cinema. Mr Hadid, a property developer, hoped to ultimately sell the mansion for nine figures. In 2017 he told Town & Country Magazine: "Demolish this house? Never! This house will last forever. Bel Air will fall before this house will." The same year, he was sentenced to three years probation and 200 hours of community service after pleading no contest to three charges of violating building regulations. Several neighbours sued Mr Hadid claiming they lived in "constant fear” of the hillside collapsing, and that their "privacy and serenity was invaded by the illegal and unsightly structure looming above them." Mr Hadid responded that he was the victim of "witch hunt" and the neighbours' claims were "total nonsense."

  • Harry How/GettyA star quarterback at a Colorado high school was arrested Friday morning for allegedly sexually assaulting multiple girls on a party bus in 2018. Aidan Atkinson, an 18-year-old student at Fairview High School who verbally committed to play at Northwestern University next fall, was charged with several counts on Friday, including three felony counts of sexual assault, Boulder County jail records show. The Boulder Police Department issued a statement stating that an individual turned himself into authorities on Friday, but did not identify the suspect because he was “a juvenile at the time” of the alleged September 2018 incident on a party bus. The statement lists the same charges filed against Atkinson-who was the only person charged Friday with sexual assault. The Boulder Daily Camera was the first to report the news of Atkinson’s arrest.Baylor Suspends Two Football Players Over Sexual-Assault AllegationsThe police statement says authorities “began investigating allegations of sexual assault involving multiple female victims and one male suspect” after the September 15, 2018 incident.“Multiple detectives conducted interviews with witnesses and victims in this incident,” the statement says, adding that investigators are still hoping to “speak to anyone who may have additional information about what occurred, including any videos or photographs of the assaults.”Atkinson, a high-school senior who was named Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year, has broken multiple state football records, including a previous record for career passing yards that was uncontested for 19 years. He also set the state passing touchdown record earlier this month. A Boulder Valley School District spokesman confirmed to The Daily Beast Atkinson will not play in Friday night’s highly anticipated 5A state playoff game against Cherry Creek High School. One of the state’s top football players, the 18-year-old verbally committed to Northwestern last year to join the Wildcats in 2020. Football Player Charged in Pregnant Cheerleader’s Murder: ‘She Was a Child With a Child’“The Boulder Valley School District is cooperating with our partners in law enforcement and the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office,” the spokesperson said.The Boulder County District Attorney’s office did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment. Northwestern Associate Athletic Director Pat Kennedy told The Daily Camera he could not comment on the ongoing investigation. “Northwestern is not permitted to comment on any prospective student-athlete until such time as they sign a National Letter of Intent,” Kennedy said.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
