Brad Raffensperger investigation into Florida attorney Bill Price

Raffensperger says the attorney told the county Republican party that he’d be registering to vote in Georgia, and encouraged them to do the same

ATLANTA — The Georgia Secretary of State announced Thursday afternoon that his office is investigating a Florida attorney who, he says, attempted to register to fraudulently vote.

According to a news release, Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger says Bill Price was caught on tape stating his intent to register in Georgia and encouraging two million other people to move into Georgia before the January runoff to vote.

Raffensperger says only true Georgia residents can register to vote and cast a ballot in the state’s elections.

“Make no mistake, individuals who attempt to undermine the integrity of Georgia’s elections will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Secretary Raffensperger. “Those who move to Georgia just to vote in the Senate runoffs with

Ex U.S. Attorney calls for investigation into Lindsey Graham call

Secretary Brad Raffensperger said last month he’d gotten a call from the South Carolina senator in which he felt he was pressured to find ways to invalidate ballots.

ATLANTA — An Atlanta-based former U.S. Attorney requested an investigation into a call between South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger last month.

In mid-November, Raffensperger told The Washington Post that he felt that in the conversation, Sen. Graham had asked him questions in a manner that, as The Post put it, “appeared to suggest that he find a way to toss legally cast ballots.”

Graham has called that interpretation “ridiculous.”

Raffensperger told the paper it “sure looked like he was wanting to go down that road.” That interpretation was later backed up by Gabriel Sterling in the Secretary of State’s Office, who was on for some of the call.

According to The Post, Graham asked Raffensperger

Polis order again clarifies scope of state prosecutor’s investigation into Elijah McClain’s death

DENVER – Colorado Gov. Jared Polis issued another executive order Wednesday that again amends the scope of Attorney General Phil Weiser’s investigation into the actions surrounding Elijah McClain’s death after an amendment last month caused some people to think Weiser would not be able to prosecute law enforcement officers.

Under the original scope of the investigation, which was ordered in June, Weiser, who was appointed as state prosecutor, could investigate “any potential criminal activity by law enforcement officers or any other individuals that caused the death of Elijah McClain in Aurora Colorado in August 2019.

Polis’ Nov. 10 amended executive order changed the scope of the investigation to say Weiser could investigate “offenses arising from the August 24, 2019 encounter with Elijah McClain and/or his subsequent death, and, if deemed necessary, prosecute any persons for such offenses.”

Some took the change – including the removal of the words “law enforcement

Barr appoints US attorney as special counsel in origins of Russia probe investigation

The attorney general appointed John Durham two weeks before the election.

Attorney General William Barr appointed Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel to investigate the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Durham was previously appointed to investigate any criminal wrongdoing in the way top leaders at the Justice Department and FBI handled the investigation, but Barr’s decision to elevate him as a special counsel, done two weeks prior to the election, gives Durham an extra layer of protection — he can’t easily be fired in a Justice Department under a new administration.

In an appointment order released Tuesday, Barr said that Durham is authorized “to investigate whether any federal official, employee or any person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counter-intelligence

Candidates who could prosecute Trump weigh in on New York’s criminal investigation

When President Trump leaves office, a slew of investigations promise to cause him legal headaches, including congressional inquiries and probes by the Attorneys General of New York and Washington, D.C. But there’s just one publicly known investigation that could lead to criminal charges for Mr. Trump, and it’s being led by a district attorney whose office is up for grabs in 2021.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is overseeing the investigation, which initially targeted hush-money payments made during the 2016 campaign to adult film star Stormy Daniels by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. However, Vance’s office has indicated in court filings that the investigation has since widened to look at possible crimes as wide-ranging as fraud and tax evasion.

A grand jury is conducting an investigation and will eventually determine whether charges are warranted. The timetable is unclear, but even if Mr. Trump

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office opened an investigation into state Rep. David Cook, the Pinal County sheriff and others after allegations that the lawman called off plans to seize property belonging to the family of an agriculture industry lobbyist, according to a letter obtained by The Arizona Republic.

In the letter, a special agent from the Attorney General’s Office sought records in June from the Arizona House of Representatives’ ethics investigation into Cook, which revolved around claims Cook, R-Globe, intervened to stop the planned seizure and had a romantic relationship with the lobbyist, AnnaMarie Knorr, which Cook and Knorr have denied.

The chair of the investigation said it was at a minimum

Missing businesswoman case now ‘murder investigation’

The lawyer for a millionaire businesswoman, who vanished from her cliffside Sydney home more than two weeks ago after it was raided by the corporate watchdog and Australian Federal Police, has said in court the case is now being treated as a murder investigation.

Speaking during Friday’s case management hearing in the Federal Court, barrister Jane Muir said Ms Caddick’s brother, Adam Grimley, had been busy assisting police with a murder investigation.

“It’s very difficult for them to provide us with timely instructions given the other claims on their time that are referable to the first defendant being missing,” she told the court.

“Family matters and, in Mr Grimley’s case, I understand he is also spending time assisting the police with what is now a murder investigation.”

Police told NCA NewsWire there had been no changes to its investigation, with officers still treating Ms Caddick’s disappearance as a missing persons

Diego Maradona’s lawyer demands investigation into ambulance response after his death

Diego Maradona’s lawyer and agent has demanded an investigation into the time it took for ambulances to reach the Argentinian soccer star’s home earlier this week after he suffered a fatal heart attack. 

Maradona had been battling health problems for years, and even underwent brain surgery in Buenos Aires earlier this month. He was discharged two weeks ago and recovering at home when he suffered a heart attack on Wednesday and died. He was 60. 

Diego Maradona’s lawyer demands investigation

Six ambulances reportedly arrived at Maradona’s home outside of Buenos Aires on Wednesday. Maradona’s lawyer and agent, Matias Morla, said the district attorney’s office reported that the ambulances took “more than half an hour to arrive” to Maradona’s home — which he described as “criminal idiocy.”

“This fact cannot be overlooked and I’m going to ask for an investigation to look into it until the end,” Morla said in a
