South Africa's ex-president Zuma says he'll appeal jail term
NKANDLA, South Africa (AP) — Ignoring efforts to defuse a tense standoff, former South African President Jacob Zuma told hundreds of supporters gathered outside his rural estate that he is appealing his 15-month prison sentence and impending arrest by police. South Africa's top court, the Constitutional Court, last week sentenced Zuma to prison for defying a court order that he should testify before a commission investigating allegations of rampant corruption when he was president from 2009 to 2018.
Rudy Giuliani tells NBC New York that he is "more than willing to go to jail," but if he does, those who put him there will "suffer the consequences in heaven."
George Conway Slams Trump Advisers Like His Wife: They 'Didn't Push Back' (Video)
George Conway said on Friday that former President Donald Trump's White House aides — including Conway's wife, Kellyanne Conway — "didn't push back" on him when they should have. Appearing on CNN, the conservative lawyer scoffed after host Brianna Keilar read a book excerpt claiming that former secretary of state Mike Pompeo fretted that "the crazies [had] taken over" after Trump began baselessly claiming voter fraud in the wake of the 2020 election, which he lost to President Joe Biden. "That's really nice that he thought that and that he said that privately," Conway said sarcastically.
Donald Trump's former attorney has been the subject of a lengthy federal investigation into his dealings as an "unregistered lobbyist for Ukrainian" before the 2020 presidential election, an investigation which he calls unlawful and politically motivated. In a new interview with NBC News 4's Melissa Russo, Giuliani maintains his innocence, saying if you think he committed a crime, "you're probably really stupid."
Sentencing delay for men found guilty of flouting Alberta COVID-19 rules
CALGARY — Sentencing arguments for an Alberta pastor, his brother and a café owner found guilty of contempt after deliberately violating COVID-19 health orders has been put over until September. Artur Pawlowski and his brother Dawid Pawlowski of Calgary were arrested in May and accused of organizing an illegal gathering as well as promoting and attending an illegal gathering. Christopher Scott, owner of the Whistle Stop Cafe in the hamlet of Mirror, northeast of Red Deer, was also arrested in May at the end of an anti-lockdown rally. The café had been closed earlier by health officials.
"I committed no crime, and if you think I committed a crime, you're probably really stupid, because you don't know who I am," Giuliani said. "Is the guy who put the mafia in jail, terrorists in jail, Ed Koch's commissioners in jail, and the worst people on Wall Street -- I'm not going to file (a form)? I mean, that's just crazy."
Federal investigators searched Giuliani's office and Upper East Side apartment in April, seizing his electronic devices. In June,released audio of a 2019 phone conversation in which he "relentlessly pressured and coaxed the Ukrainian government in 2019 to investigate baseless conspiracies about then-candidate Joe Biden."
Although frustrated by the FBI probe, Giuliani said he's "more than willing to go to jail if they want to put me in jail" even if he is not guilty. He added, "And if they do, they're going to suffer the consequences in heaven."
Why would he plead guilty if he wasn't? "Because they lie, they cheat," he replied.
The New York appellate court suspended his law license "until further notice" in June 24, stating that he made "demonstrably false and misleading" statements about the 2020 election as former President Donald Trump's attorney, questioning the legitimacy of both the election as a whole as well as President Joe Biden's win. In July, he was suspended from practicing law in Washington, D.C. by the District of Columbia's highest court for the same reason. In addition, his YouTube account was suspended in March for once again pushing false claims of election fraud.
Down to 10 men, CF Montréal hangs on for 0-0 draw in Cincinnati .
CF Montréal came to Cincinnati looking for a win, but they will be satisfied to have escaped with a point after a 0-0 draw CFM was outplayed by FC Cincinnati from start to finish and any chance of a late go-ahead goal ended when defender Rudy Camacho was handed a red card, in the 75th minute, forcing the visitors to play a man short. CFM was unable to get a shot on target and needed a strong effort from goalkeeper Sebastian Breza, who joined the club this season on loan from Bologna. He made three saves for his first MLS clean sheet. Coach Wilfried Nancy said the club has to find a way to generate more offence, but it won’t be easy.
