Eric Holder Flirts With Presidential Bid, Hooks Up With Hollywood

CBS recently ordered a pilot episode of a new show, “Main Justice,” in which the protagonist will be based on former Obama attorney general Eric Holder. Since Holder is an executive producer, the narrative will no doubt depict him as the crusader for justice that he sees in his own mirror every day. It will also likely serve as campaign propaganda now that Holder is openly flirting with running for president in 2020.

To be fair, Holder’s career has had some high points. But no objective review of his record would ever conclude that he’s a maverick who bucked the system in the pursuit of justice. That part is pure Hollywood.

Here’s one vignette in Holder’s career guaranteed to end up on the cutting room floor: as deputy attorney general at the end of the Clinton administration he made the official call behind the now-infamous Marc Rich pardon. Rich, a former

Longtime friend of defendant takes stand in 2015 Hahn Village deadly robbery

A childhood friend of the defendant testified in court Wednesday about the night his younger brother was killed in a robbery.

Patrick Neely took the stand on the second day of testimony in the trial for Rashawan Carter, 27, of Aiken. Carter has pleaded not guilty to being a part of a May 2015 home invasion at a Brown Lane residence in Hahn Village that ended with the death of one of Carter’s friends, 21-year-old Darius Scruggs.

Solicitors say Carter and Scruggs helped plan the robbery, along with Richard Jackson, 26, of Augusta, and Rodriquez Kintrell Jackson, 26, of Aiken.

Scruggs died after he was shot in the head during the incident, and solicitors said one of the other three men was a lookout.

Neely, Scrugg’s older brother, was called to testify Wednesday by State Solicitor Beth Ann Young.

Neely said he grew up with Carter and had known him for most of his life.

Neely explained

James Franco Returning for Season 2 of HBO Series ‘The Deuce’

James Franco will return for the second season of the HBO series, The Deuce, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The publication reports that show writer Megan Abbott met with reporters during the Writers Guild Awards ceremony Sunday and said “of course” Franco would be back.

The show, which aired its eight-episode first season from August through October 2017, has Franco playing twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino who become fronts for the mob as they become entangled in the rise of adult film entertainment in 1970s Manhattan.

Five women came forward with misconduct allegations against Franco in January, leading to his removal from the Academy Awards cover of Vanity Fair. Additionally, he was called out by multiple celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson. Franco however went on both Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers to deny the allegations.

“Look, in my life I pride myself on

In FX’s 2017 series American Horror Story: Cult, Evan Peters got to play four famous cult leaders, in addition to the show’s main character and group leader Kai. Peters played Koresh, who Kai viewed as a spiritual mentor, as well as Manson, Jim Jones and Marshall Applewhite.

As Jones (pictured above), Peters disguised himself to portray an American religious leader of the Peoples Temple cult, who initiated a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. Nearly three decades after the group’s creation, reports that human rights abuses were taking place in the Peoples Temple in Jonestown in 1978 led US Congressman Leo Ryan to launch an investigation into the cult; he and others were shot and killed whole boarding a flight with ex-members of the group.

Jones then committed a

Does Jamie Dornan Go Full Frontal in ‘Fifty Shades Freed’?

Jamie Dornan recently revealed that there is no full-frontal nudity in Fifty Shades Freed and he went on to explain why.

Speaking about rumors that he was offered $1 million to show more of his manhood, after allowing a glimpse of it in 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey, Dornan laughed and joked, “It was $30 million—to show one testicle.”

“No, that whole thing with offering more money to go nude?” he added, as reported by E! News. “That didn’t happen.”

Dornan then explained that he was never opposed to showing more, if it was crucial to the plot, saying, “I don’t know if I said I wouldn’t. You see my a— quite a lot. That doesn’t really bother me. You see a lot of [Dakota Johnson’s] t—. I would show my t— if I had them. I just thought, ‘We don’t need to be flashing the rest if

Marshalling IT and agile development to improve customer service at US Marshals Service

Federal agencies recognize that improving the customer experience with internal customers can be just as important as it is with external customers. For the U.S. Marshals Service, a federal law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice, that also means working with state and local partners as well. In this abridged QA, U.S. Marshals Service CIO Karl Mathias shares how his IT team is working with U.S. marshals and law enforcement partners to improve customer experience.

FedScoop: Describe the primary customer groups you serve – and how important managing the customer experience is to your agency’s mission?

Karl Mathias: It’s extremely important to us. A lot of what we do is internally focused. Our first category of customer includes 94 U.S. marshals, and about 3,700 deputy U.S. marshals who do the work of the agency. We also do investigations to find fugitives and deal with asset forfeiture, special operations and witness security.Read More at: https://www.fedscoop.com/marshalling-agile-development-improve-customer-service-u-s-marshals-service/

Newly-released FBI documents obtained by Clarion Project confirm Clarion’s reports that Jamaat ul-Fuqra is training members in isolated communes across America and Canada.

What’s On: A Not-So-Random Killing on ‘American Crime Story,’ ‘grown-ish,’ ‘Waco’

A selective critical checklist of notable Wednesday TV:

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (10/9c, FX): As this chilling docudrama tracks back in time to reveal the extent of Andrew Cunanan’s (Darren Criss) crimes, the setting moves to Chicago, with stellar guest performances by Judith Light and Mike Farrell as Marilyn and Lee Miglin. She’s a cosmetics maven with a home-shopping TV high profile and a “perfect husband” in Lee, a well-connected real-estate tycoon who’s also a closeted gay of a certain age, making him vulnerable to the narcissistic and murderous predations of Cunanan. The authorities initially declare this incident a “random killing,” though it will soon put Cunanan on the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted” fugitive list.
