Trump Said to Weigh Aide Conways Husband for Top Legal Job

President-elect Donald Trump is considering George Conway, a long-time corporate lawyer and the husband of senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, to be U.S. solicitor general, the government’s top appellate lawyer, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Conway, who’s spent more than two decades as a partner at New York corporate legal powerhouse Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, has made a career representing high-profile clients from the National Football League to tobacco maker Philip Morris, according to his biography on the firm’s website. He wasn’t directly involved in Trump’s presidential campaign, which was managed by his wife.

BUT...
Kellyanne Conway's husband George was secret central figure in Clinton's impeachment
Very involved in Clinton's impeachment.
--- secretly wrote the SCOTUS brief to have Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit proceed while Clinton was still in office.
(suit summarily dismissed by a federal court as so lacking in evidence that no reasonable jury could ever find in favor of Jones).

--- secretly worked with Linda Tripp and helped engineer her initial meeting with Ken Starr

-- Concealed his work from his own Wachtell partners

Florida Man Beaten by Ex-Girlfriend For Making Out With Her Mom

Total story:

A 19-year-old Florida woman is in jail after beating up her ex-boyfriend when she caught him kissing her mother, who was sitting in his lap.

Benanua Bolton started to cry, broke in through the bedroom window and pushed the victim over a chair, knocking him to the floor. When he tried to stand, she slugged him in the head, according to WFLA.

Bolton and the victim dated for over a year, but they recently broke up. The ex had minor injuries to his arm and his head was red from where she hit him.

She was charged with domestic battery, according to Hernando County deputies.

Trump just got himself another diss:

Since 2009, Mama Ayesha’s restaurant in Adams Morgan has featured every US president from Eisenhower to Obama on a large mural on the side of the restaurant.
President-elect Donald Trump won’t be joining them:
“Our official position is that it is not in the budget,” says Amir Abu-El-Hawa, whose family owns the restaurant.

Mama Ayesha’s has been at the same location since it opened its doors as the Calvert Cafe in 1960.
The mural depicts founder “Mama” Ayesha Abraham with the US leaders. “This is Mama welcoming the presidents to DC,” says Abu-El-Hawa, who is her great-nephew. “She was the American dream. For a Muslim and Arab woman immigrant from Palestine to come here on her own and build this business, is a remarkable legacy.”

Marching to Aleppo: Berliner leads mass peace march to Syria

Tired of seeing the bloodshed and Syrian suffering, Anna Alboth organised a mass march from Berlin to Aleppo, happening now.

She is the organiser of the Civil March for Aleppo. While others were sitting around the dinner table with their families, Alboth and others from all over Europe were preparing for a month-long walk from Berlin to Syria.

They plan to walk through Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey - the Balkan route backwards - 20 kilometres a day in freezing temperatures, with the aim of sleeping in tents and sports halls. The journey is expected to take over three months.
