Why the man who's spent 50 years in jail for killing Bobby Kennedy COULDN'T have done it: Explosive claim comes to light in a new book by two authors
Why the man who's spent 50 years in jail for killing Bobby Kennedy COULDN'T have done it: Explosive claim comes to light in a new book by two authors who've spend decades investigating the murder --Robert Kennedy was assassinated at the Ambassador Hotel, LA, on June 4, 1968 --Sirhan Sirhan, a Palestinian with Jordanian citizenship, was arrested at scene --He was convicted of murder in 1969 and sentenced to death, commuted to life --His lawyers never denied he fired the shot and instead argued he was insane --Tim Tate and Brad Johnson spent decades investigating the assassination -- They claim in a new book he couldn't have pulled the trigger and is innocent | 25 May 2018 | ...Before the media was locked out of the pantry, an Associated Press photographer also took some pictures -- this time of two uniformed police officers pointing at a bullet hole in the jamb of another door-frame. According to one of the policemen, this also contained a bullet. All the woodwork was later destroyed by the police. But, taking into account all the unexplained bullet holes noted by witnesses, it appeared that at least 14 bullets had been fired. Sirhan, of course, had possessed just one gun and eight bullets. There was another disturbing discrepancy. With the backing of Sirhan's legal team, a top ballistics expert inspected the bullets recovered by the police. In a sworn affidavit, he found a significant difference between a slug recovered from Kennedy's body and another from that of a TV director who'd accompanied him to the pantry. In the expert's opinion, the two bullets could not have been fired from the same gun.

House easily passes prison reform bill backed by Trump | 22 May 2018 | The House overwhelming passed a bipartisan prison reform bill Tuesday afternoon amid objections from some Democrats and groups on the left that it doesn't go far enough. Lawmakers approved the First Step Act by a 360-59 vote, including the support of 134 Democrats, to incentivize inmates to complete prison programs that reduce their likelihood to reoffend after they are released. The legislation, authored by Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) and Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), provides $50 million to the Bureau of Prisons annually for the next five years for prison programs including education, drug treatment and job skills training. Under the bill, which is supported by the White House but faces an uncertain future in the Senate, prisoners would be allowed to earn time credits for completing programs and then use those credits to serve the remaining days of their sentences in a halfway house or home confinement.
Andrew McCabe spent $70,000 on a table. The FBI hid it from Congress. | 24 May 2018 | Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who was fired for lying under oath, spent $70,000 in taxpayer dollars on a conference table. The FBI also redacted the conference table’s steep price tag from documents that members of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested, in an apparent attempt to hide it from Congress. In a letter sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley revealed that the FBI had redacted the cost of the table from a document he and his fellow members of the committee requested to see. Grassley said many of the redactions within the documents made no sense, nor were they made to protect national security secrets.
