A sign of Rikers Island, where IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn will be held, is pictured in Queens, New York on May 16, 2011. A New York judge denied IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn bail on Monday, despite an offer from his defense team to put up $1 million in cash and surrender all his travel documents. The judge ordered the IMF chief detained, two days after he was pulled off a plane and accused of trying to rape a Manhattan hotel chambermaid.

A group of Rikers guards, accused of beating an inmate at the behest of their superior and then covering it up, did so because he stared at supervising warden Eliseo Perez Jr., prosecutors said on Wednesday. “This guy thinks he’s tough,” Perez allegedly told his team. “I want you to knock his f—ing teeth in,” he ordered. The inmate, Jamal Lightfoot, wound up with broken eye sockets and nose. The ten defendants say they were using appropriate force, restraining a violentinmate.
“Donald Trump was being framed, he fought back. That is not Obstruction.” @JesseBWatters I had the right to end the whole Witch Hunt if I wanted. I could have fired everyone, including Mueller, if I wanted. I chose not to. I had the RIGHT to use Executive Privilege. I didn’t!
Trump bellowing orders to commit various stupid, desperate crimes at his underlings while a TV blares on commercial break and then them just ignoring him and continuing with the usual, normal crimes their jobs demand was always the conclusion that felt most right.
Incredible: While the Muller report was being released, Facebook updates an old press post titled “Keeping Passwords Secure” with the new disclosure that millions of Instagram account passwords were internally stored in readable plaintext. https://t.co/BiDfq1G8N3
