The portfolio was sold by the Hunsaker Family to Positive Investments.  Located in the San Gabriel Valley with easy access to nearby 10 and 210 freeways along with metro access, the properties offer a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom units, and single-family residences. Additionally, the building’s range of lush living amenities include swimming pools, club houses, secure entry, covered parking and carports, as well as plentiful area dining options, retail stores, schools, and recreational spaces, making its central location ideal for attracting tenants.   “The properties, all of which were in close proximity to each other, sold over ask with multiple offers in just three weeks,” said Berzack, who represented both parties. “This portfolio signals an extraordinarily strong demand for the multifamily market, particularly those that offer a value-add reposition play. There is also a limited quantity of large property types like this on the market. All of this, coupled with low-interest rates, excess liquidity, and high demand, created a tremendous appetite for this portfolio.”   The post Lee & Associates – LA North/Ventura inks nearly $68M multifamily appeared first on Real Estate Weekly......»»

Sanofi (SNY) to Acquire Amunix, Boost Immuno-oncology Pipeline

Sanofi (SNY) inks a deal to acquire privately-held Amunix Pharmaceuticals, which will add potentially transformative cancer therapies to its immuno-oncology pipeline. Sanofi SNY announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire privately-held, immuno-oncology company, Amunix Pharmaceuticals, for an upfront payment of approximately $1 billion.The acquisition of Amunix will add potentially transformative cancer therapies and three technology platforms to Sanofi’s pipeline.Amunix’s proprietary masking technology platform, XTEN, will help Sanofi develop safer and more efficacious cancer drugs by activating preferentially in disease-specific micro-environments. The platform has the potential to discover T-Cell Engager bi-specific antibodies for solid tumors without the risk of unwanted immune attack including cytokine release syndrome. The masking technology also enables the development of drugs that can stay in the patient’s body for a long time in inactive mode but is rapidly cleared from the body as it reaches disease-specific cells. Amunix’s masking technology can be applied to discover new drug molecules as well as to Sanofi’s existing pipeline candidates.Amunix has no clinical-stage candidate in its pipeline. Its lead pipeline candidate, AMX-818 — developed using the XTEN platform — is being developed for targeting HER2-expressing solid tumors. The candidate is likely to enter clinical study shortly.Sanofi already has approximately 20 innovative cancer therapies under development and the Amunix buyout is believed to boost its immuno-oncology pipeline.The acquisition is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. In addition to the upfront payment, Sanofi will also be entitled to pay up to $225 million in milestone payments to Amunix’s shareholders upon achievement of certain future development milestones.Sanofi’s shares have gained 0.9% so far this year compared with the industry’s increase of 19%.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchSanofi has significantly stepped up its acquisition and alliance activity over the past few years to boost its pipeline and portfolio of drugs.In September, Sanofi acquired its partner for some pipeline candidates, Translate Bio for approximately $3.2 billion. The acquisition added a promising mRNA technology platform to develop therapeutics and vaccines and also accelerate the development of their existing partnered pipeline programs. The company also acquired two clinical-stage biopharmaceutical companies, Kiadis and Kymab, in April. These acquisitions added natural-killer cell therapies, and immune and inflammatory candidates to its pipeline.Sanofi acquired another biopharma company, Kadmon Holdings, last month adding an FDA-approved treatment for chronic graft-versus-host disease, Rezurock, to its commercialized portfolio.Sanofi Price Sanofi price | Sanofi QuoteZacks Rank & Stocks to ConsiderSanofi currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).Some better-ranked stocks from the pharma/biotech sector include GlaxoSmithKline GSK, Repligen RGEN and Sarepta Therapeutics SRPT.

Millennials, Remote Work Are Upending Cities—What It Means for Real Estate

Location is, and has always been, everything in real estate. The truism that where a property sits must be its most important characteristic remains undisputed. But what is location, really? What does it mean to homebuyers, and what are the consequences when changes come? The truth is, street layouts, public transportation systems, commuting routes, open […] The post Millennials, Remote Work Are Upending Cities—What It Means for Real Estate appeared first on RISMedia. Location is, and has always been, everything in real estate. The truism that where a property sits must be its most important characteristic remains undisputed. But what is location, really? What does it mean to homebuyers, and what are the consequences when changes come? The truth is, street layouts, public transportation systems, commuting routes, open space, walking paths, restaurants or shopping, parks, schools and scenic views are malleable both in how they are valued and how they come to be. While location might seem like a relatively static feature when talking about properties, shifting priorities from policymakers as well as evolving consumer preferences can quickly cool off a hot neighborhood or revitalize a lagging market. Both these processes are happening all the time, but the current shift is maybe more dramatic and moving more rapidly than at any time in recent memory as Americans completely reevaluate exactly where they want to live—and why. Dr. Sam Chandan is a professor at NYU and Academic Dean of the school’s Schack Institute of Real Estate. He says a multitude of changes are manifesting now that could impact both city planning and real estate for decades to come. “Millennials are not necessarily looking for something that looks like Levittown,” says Chandan, referring to the hyper-planned suburban Long Island community that is often cited as a model of postwar housing philosophy. “It’s not sort of a ‘Leave it to Beaver’ scenario.” With people born in the 1980s and 1990s becoming the largest segment of homebuyers, understanding that demographic’s needs and preferences is a holy grail for real estate professionals. But how is that information guiding the growth of towns and cities, and what does it mean for the housing market? Chandan says that like most things real-estate related, the answers are always going to be local. But as the temporary supply constraints currently preventing the housing market from reaching its full potential fade, Chandan predicts that areas that allow higher densities through zoning reforms and follow a more centralized, community-oriented plan of development will be best positioned to capitalize and grow. “We’re talking about wanting to be in easy reach of a set of cultural and social amenities, and I think that is quite different from what we would have seen as the profile of a comparably-aged young family 30 years ago,” he says. Waiting on the World to Change Manhattan Beach nestles in the southwest corner of Los Angeles. The median sale price for a home exceeds $2 million, according to U.S. census data, with a mostly white and Asian population in a county that is almost 45% Hispanic. Most residential areas are composed of close-set, adobe-roofed single-family constructions on narrow streets, bisected with a commercial thoroughfare that feeds into the city’s bustling beach-adjacent downtown—a spread of health food stores, cafes and boutique retail shopping pressed right up against the water. Kristi Ramirez-Knowles is a team leader for Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty and a long-time Manhattan Beach resident, though she works in many of the surrounding southwest LA cities. In an area that is historically resistant to change, COVID has potentially provided a kick-start for generational changes in living preferences. “Now, post COVID—though we’re still in COVID—we still have a mix. We still have people that are willing to go almost anywhere,” she says. “ it’s a safe community.” Woburn, Massachusetts is a sprawling suburb about 25 minutes outside of Boston. It can trace its European colonization back to the mid 1600s, and is now characterized by its rustic winding streets and big colonials with plenty of forested areas and parks filling the margins. The town offers a wider range of price points, from $150,000 ranch fixer-uppers to a handful of multi-million-dollar estates. Eileen Dohtery is a ninth-generation resident of Woburn with 40 years of real estate experience, currently working for Lamacchia Realty. She says even as homebuyer preferences have evolved rapidly, change in policy and infrastructure often creeps up more gradually. “ are beside themselves because there’s so much development—if anything they’d like to restrict it and make it less per acre,” she says. Dan Forsman is President & CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties. Overseeing the Atlanta region, he says dozens of thriving suburbs—many of which were originally vacation or resort communities—have begun “revitalization” efforts to begin serving changing needs and desires of longer-term residents. “Eclectic, farm to table restaurants—people are looking for that, access to that, and looking to where they can get that when they’re away from what I call ‘white noise,’” he says. Though these three disparate regions will certainly evolve along different lines at a more granular level, Chandan says that broadly the narrative of mass migration to different states or cities is overblown. People—especially young people—are looking to live within or near traditional metros like New York or Boston, but specifically for towns that can offer them a specific index of amenities. “What the data actually tells us is the dominant trend is greater dispersion in the metropolitan area,” he says. “They’re able to sort of optimize in a way that also accounts for all these other things that they care about.” What’s My Age Again? One of the most direct methods of addressing these needs is “upzoning” to allow for more density around what Chandan describes as the “quasi-urban core” of smaller towns and suburban cities. This has proved effective in combating land scarcity, affordability and transportation access, and often allows for developments of mid-rise condo complexes, townhomes or repurposed mixed-used construction that previously might have been disallowed or heavily regulated. These changes are also becoming more politically viable in many places as a new generation arrives—a generation that is more comfortable with diversity and living close to others, according to Chandan. In Woburn, this is only partly true, as Dohtery says she has observed some attitudes changing while others have not—starting with acceptance of racial diversity. “In the older parts of the center…it was more mixed nationalities. The older people wouldn’t walk down there. Younger people are that much more liberal, they don’t care, they like it. That’s where you see changing,” she reflects. In recent years there has been a big push to tear down old buildings in Woburn’s centuries-old central hub, putting up some multifamily living units and opening restaurants and retail stores. Doherty herself owns a multi-family home right in the city center, where her niece currently lives with some younger roommates. “They absolutely love being there, they walk downtown—literally in their backyard—to a different restaurant every night,” she laughs. At the other extreme, some neighborhoods in towns abutting Woburn can only be reached by unpaved, pothole-ridden streets—not because the town cannot afford to fix or pave them, but because people who live there have lobbied against it, according to Doherty. The idea, she says, is to discourage anyone who doesn’t live there from even driving past, keeping noise and nuisance to an absolute minimum. “That’s old Yankee money,” Doherty says. “It keeps the people out of their neighborhood.” Some of these folks are likely fighting a losing battle if they’re hoping to prevent development to that extreme (Doherty is currently involved with a 147-unit townhome development in Woburn). While resistance from locals can certainly slow down the evolution of a city, eventually both policymakers and developers are going to find ways to meet consumers with what they want. One thing that is changing in Los Angeles is at least a partial removal of one of the biggest barriers there: commuting. In the past, Ramirez-Knowles says she would tell potential homebuyers to rent a hotel for a night near a neighborhood they were considering and see if they could endure the level traffic and smog on a day’s commute before deciding to live there. But now with remote work, as well as a renewed emphasis on transportation and now-ubiquitous electric cars, Ramirez-Knowles says that areas that used to be defined by their freeway access and distance to business centers are trying to become self-sustaining. “So many millennials are doing a lot of their jobs—-they can work from home,” she says. “They don’t want to get out and drive. It’s important for them to walk or if they have to drive, drive a very short distance.” That is not to say that traffic does not matter anymore—commuters still end up driving as much as four hours a day to go a handful of miles cross-town, Ramirez-Knowles says. But areas that have more space, better views and nice schools are now options for many more families who do not have to worry about prohibitively lengthy drives. Another offset of the millennial lifestyle and work-from-home opportunities that is influencing city layouts is loneliness. Starting with the pandemic isolation, Ramirez-Knowles says people began seeking out “community amenities” where they could at least encounter another friendly (even mask-wearing) face. That has continued as people who work from home have limited excuses to just get outside, meet neighbors and learn about their town. “They want to be able to go walk their dogs, walk with their kids, get outside and get vitamin D,” she says. “You’re not getting out very much…you need places to go walk, you need a walkway—a green belt, if you will—a park, a pier.” In the Atlanta area, several towns are realizing that they can provide a lot more for their changing communities, according to Forsman. People who have second homes in the suburbs are spending more and more time away from the white noise of their working lives, he says, and are beginning to look for the same amenities in these areas as they have in their primary homes. Though this trend is hardly analogous to what is happening in Woburn or Los Angeles, the effect is the same: cities are re-developing downtowns and shifting the kind of access and amenities they provide. “They’ve had a face lift and an upgrade, because people aren’t going to malls the way they used to,” Forsman says. This applies even to areas in the north that historically have been made up of mostly seasonal resort towns in the mountains. As flexible work allows residents to spend more time here, businesses move in to provide more grocery shopping, entertainment and year-round services, which in turn draws even more people to make those towns their permanent—or semi-permanent—homes. Stop, Collaborate and Listen There are many other barriers and unintended consequences stemming from the types of changes happening right now as well, he adds. Cities that are too successful with these tactics will quickly see the price of land and homes balloon, slowing real estate growth and creating more racial and economic segregation. In places like Woburn, there is also the possibility of political backlash, and policymakers must balance the often-powerful backlash from residents and other stakeholders who fear loss of so-called community character or outsides. Real estate professionals can make a big difference in these situations. Doherty says that as a longtime resident she is trusted by even the most stalwart Woburnites and can navigate the complicated landscape of local politics and land use laws, where trust and experience make all the difference. Doherty speaks of being contacted by a local politician one time, who invited her to attend a campaign event emphasizing that she was maybe the most well-known public figure in the area. “I said to him, ‘I have to go, I sold you your house!’” she laughs. In Woburn, developments, zoning tweaks and infrastructure investments happen gradually, and becomes much easier with any local support, according to Doherty, with projects eeking through the approval process one by one. On the other side of the country, Ramirez-Knowles says the overpricing and lack of homes has pushed people to settle in areas where the schools or neighborhoods maybe aren’t what they had originally hoped for. Developers are building brand new, more affordable condos inland in cities that haven’t historically been “family friendly” like Torrance and Gardena, and people are snatching them up, she says. “I would say that’s attracting families even though the school district may not be that great. I think it’s the appeal of brand new and something they can afford,” she posits. Many of these units are selling out before they are even framed, she adds, during the current inventory crunch. If cities approve the kind of housing units people are looking for— which Ramirez-Knowles describes as narrow, multi-floored condo communities with built-in recreation centers, pools and gyms—even more business investment and development often follows. The result of all this movement and new development, of offering wider varieties of housing types and densities in different parts of a given city creates demographic diversity, according to Chandan. A place that can accommodate young and old, wealthy and lower income folks, families and retirees is much healthier for everyone, and especially for the real estate market. Though convincing some people of these benefits will be difficult—and sometimes impossible— Chandan argues that even those who prefer their “Leave it to Beaver” lifestyle will eventually benefit from this type of change. “The person who is a young family right now in a two or three-bedroom rental unit in that quasi-urban core—in five years, that person is a potential buyer for your home,” Chandan says.

So you saw a pullback there, some of that, yes, but I think a lot of the things you mentioned like home prices I don't see a sign of that slowing. Owners equivalent rent and these are large parts of CPI, and we can debate all day long whether or not CPI is a good thing to be tracking anyway, but I do see a risk of higher inflation. And I also think even if you don't agree with that, the confidence intervals are wider right so you have to care about it and you have to position your portfolio for that because literally everyone is screwed if they don't. Purnima Puri On Fed Chair Rate Hikes I do think you’re going to have, whoever is in that seat likely to be in that same range of that four to six number of hikes in the near term because I don't think you need a lot of flexibility in economic policy to continue the growth, right? GDP is expected to continue to go and all the estimates that went down this year, actually just transitioned to next year a little bit so you went from sort of five, you know, it went down to, I guess 50 basis points plus or minus, but that went to sort of north of 4% for 2022. So, it’s not clear that you need a whole lot of easy policy right now. Elizabeth Burton On Negative Outlook I just have a more negative outlook and I think I'm not alone, right. Look at how many times people have mentioned growth recently it's, it's meaningfully equalized than they were six months ago. But, you know, that opens the opportunity for other things but I think, I think if I had the best of the two, I would say it would definitely be on the inflationary front. Elizabeth Burton On Wage Disparity It's not potentially just all about chain disruptions, but I think one of the biggest risks right now is wage disparity, right. And also, labor shortages like trying to get people back into the office you're having to pay them more they're not coming back. So, I think that's actually the long-term issue as well, the some of the supplies theme stuff. Sure, it'll get resolved, and maybe some of the wage stuff will too. I don’t know how long people can hold out but I think that that's a risk factor that needs to be taken into consideration. Purnima Puri On Default Rates I don't think in the near-term default rates are going to go up. I think estimates, you know, default rates peaked last year around 9% I want to say plus or minus, and their estimates are down at two and a half percent. I think if there's a surprise it's actually default rates will continue to go lower, not higher. So, I don't think that, I do think the high yield market is priced pretty much to perfection. Purnima Puri On Hospitality & Real Estate We've actually found some pockets in real estate which we haven't been finding for a long time so, you know, there's hospitality which has daily reset of rate so, you know, you can catch up with inflation or multifamily where you can reset rate, you know, reset lease prices every year and keep up with inflation. So, so I would say, real estate is an area we have started to focus more on in, in the, in the sort of originated credit markets.

Industry Reels out West As Drought Wreaks Havoc on Summer Real Estate Markets

Jennifer Fortune is as bullish on Lake Tahoe real estate as anybody. She’s been serving buyers and sellers in the pristine neighborhoods of the southern region of the lake for a decade. As an agent with Chase International, she is active on both sides of the California-Nevada state line, and she’s enjoyed the weather-related ebbs […] The post Industry Reels out West As Drought Wreaks Havoc on Summer Real Estate Markets appeared first on RISMedia. Jennifer Fortune is as bullish on Lake Tahoe real estate as anybody. She’s been serving buyers and sellers in the pristine neighborhoods of the southern region of the lake for a decade. As an agent with Chase International, she is active on both sides of the California-Nevada state line, and she’s enjoyed the weather-related ebbs and flows of the local market on a mostly upward trajectory—until this summer. With the siege of the 219,267-acre Caldor Fire, which as of mid-September has yet to be contained, Fortune’s confidence and that of the hundreds of agents across the American West who’ve made a living in heavy forest communities—some, like Lake Tahoe, are world-renowned for their scenic beauty and gorgeous estates—is beginning to wane in the face of such devastation. Currently, more than 100 separate wildfires are raging from as far east as Minnesota. According to Cal Fire, the emergency management authority for California, which has, by far, the most wildfires, 3,285 structures have been damaged or destroyed this year with at least three fatalities and the scorching of more than 2.24 million acres in California, alone. The Caldor Fire by Lake Tahoe has crushed the summer home-buying season, which usually climaxes around Labor Day weekend, and forced the evacuation of thousands, including Fortune. “I don’t see how it cannot have an impact on the market,” Fortune says on her 13th day of evacuation. “We’ll recover, but this has to have an impact.” Even in areas where there isn’t an immediate danger, the roads are closed, the forests are inaccessible and the air quality is poor. Fortune indicated some have come back, but most who planned on buying or selling are delaying their plans. Fortune expects the full impact of these fires will not be known for weeks or maybe months, and then it will all be up to the winter ski season. If it’s a snowy winter, that could bring in skiers and support the economy as well as reduce the risk of another dry summer next year. Dryness and winds are the biggest triggers for forest fires. However, there are major issues that have to play out before then—mainly insurance. In California, there is a state-mandated moratorium preventing insurance companies from canceling or non-renewing policies in Siskiyou, Lassen and Plumas Counties for a full year. People who want to buy can’t get a new policy and existing ones have gone through the roof—up 80% over the past two years in some cases, Fortune says. Sabrina R. Belleci, a broker/owner with RE/MAX North Lake, has been active in the Lake Tahoe region for 12 years. She’s been through several of these multi-season drought cycles in that time, but she suggests the current state of the markets is much more complicated due to COVID-19. “COVID is stretching out the seasons,” Belleci says. “Normally, it starts to slow in the fall, but I think it will be okay. People are relocating and getting out of California and the higher income-tax states. There is still quite a bit of demand.” The trend aligns with Fortune’s thesis that an underlying demand for the Lake Tahoe lifestyle will eventually resurface. It’s just not clear how long that will take. If it’s just a brief market correction, that actually may be easy for the market to withstand since it was running so hot prior to the fires, fueled by new remote workers from all over the U.S. who became untethered from their office jobs on account of the pandemic. Most expect that greater trend to remain even if to a lesser extent post-COVID. Still, a quick rebound in Lake Tahoe is probably not in the cards due to the sheer amount of clean-up to perform and institutional hurdles to clear. The first wave is trickling in with bargain-seekers looking to take advantage of the soft market and snap up a few of the waterfront trophy properties, Fortune says. “The only buyers are people thinking they’re going to get deals,” Fortune says. “On the lake, a couple things went quickly, including a condo in three days for $2.5 million on the Nevada side. The desirable properties will hold up.” Then, the Nevada side will likely rebound first due to the insurance situation, Belleci says, citing some of the higher-rated fire districts which reduce insurance premiums. The timing on this, though, is anyone’s guess. Plus, reconstruction efforts could be unusually slow due to a shortage of materials and labor as well as logistical and accessibility challenges. “No one is cancelling as much as they’re just delaying,” Fortune says. “The longer it takes, the more it could increase inventory in the mid- to long-term. It’s always changing, but I think we’re definitely in for a change. I think prices will drop.” In the meantime, one group that is not waiting for the market to recover is the local bear population. Fortune’s home county, in which 700 residents lost their homes to the Caldor Fire, has also seen a barrage of bear break-ins after the evacuation. At least 70 have been reported, Fortune says. Upon being displaced by the fire, these hungry animals stumble upon vacant homes which, in some cases, have fully-stacked refrigerators. “There’s tons of bear damage,” Fortune says. “People have to come home after being evacuated and then they have to clean up.” Forty miles to the north, Broker Karen Degney of Realty ONE Group in Reno, Nevada, has been dealing with the effects of the Dixie Fire, which is four times larger than Caldor—1,329 structures have been destroyed, including 736 single and multifamily homes. She said its massive smoke plume has reached the Rockies, slowing the local real estate market and giving some clients buyer’s remorse. “I’ve had more than one person bring it up,” she says. “One who was closing escrow said, ‘We wish we would have known about these fires, and maybe we wouldn’t have bought here.’” Degney expects the fires from this summer to produce a ripple effect around Nevada and California. Those displaced by the Dixie and Caldor fires could move to the remaining large population centers: Carson City, Reno and what’s left of Southern Lake Tahoe. There is also a lot of back-and-forth as many local Nevadans split time in California’s Bay Area and Sacramento. That trend could be disrupted in the short-term as well, Degney says. Degney says she talks to her clients at length about the drought and subsequent fire crisis to try to put the disaster into context and relieve their concerns. “I tell them this stuff is happening nationwide,” she says. “We are in a drought, but we are in a drought on the whole West Coast. This isn’t normal. It’s extraordinary and the rest of the time it’s wonderful.” Andrew King is a contributing editor to RISMedia.

A former Trump official admitted he helped Rudy Giuliani with the fake electors scheme

Boris Epshteyn, a former Trump campaign adviser, told MSNBC host Ari Melber he was part of the "process to make sure there were alternate electors." A November 19, 2020 photo shows the personal lawyer of US President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, speaking at a press conference watched by Trump campaign advisor Boris Epshteyn (R), at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, DC.MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty Images Republicans in seven states tried to falsely certify the election in favor of Donald Trump. On Friday, Boris Epshteyn, a Trump adviser, told MSNBC he helped with the fake electors scheme.  Epshteyn, alongside Rudy Giuliani, was subpoenaed by the January 6 House select committee last week. A former Trump campaign adviser admitted to playing a role in a scheme to have illegitimate pro-Trump supporters falsely certify the election for him in seven states won by President Joe Biden. MSNBC host Ari Melber asked Boris Epshteyn on Friday if he ever worked on or supported the elector scheme. "Yes, I was part of the process to make sure there were alternate electors for when, as we hoped, the challenges to the seated electors would be heard, and would be successful," Epshteyn said. On Thursday The Washington Post reported that Epshteyn said he'd participated in conference calls with members of Trump's legal team, including Rudy Giuliani, to discuss the electors. The Post and CNN reported on Thursday that members of Trump's inner circle, led by Giuliani, coordinated the scheme.The illegitimate electors' plan had Trump supporters in seven states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – submit documents to Congress falsely claiming Trump won the states despite the majority of votes actually going to Joe Biden, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group American Oversight in March 2021. That plan was included in a six-page memo written by attorney John Eastman detailing a plan for overturning the 2020 election. During his interview with Melber, Epshteyn continued to make false claims about election fraud. He also said he did everything legally, citing Hawaii in the 1960 presidential election as a "precedent" for "alternate" electors being used.CNN reported that in that election, however, Richard Nixon initially had a lead on John F. Kennedy by 141 votes (a narrow margin compared to any state in this previous election). After a legal recount, Nixon lost, and the multiple panels of electors were due to the state changing the outcome following the recount. "So, Ari, everything that was done was done legally by the Trump legal team, according to the rules, and under the leadership of Rudy Giuliani," Epshteyn said.Epshteyn, alongside Guiliani and Trump associates Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis were subpoenaed by the January 6 House select committee this week. Additionally, several attorneys general from the seven states with illegitimate electors say they're pursuing investigations and charges. Read the original article on Business Insider.....»»

Texas AG Ken Paxton could face a lawsuit after missing a prosecutor"s deadline to hand over documents tied to his appearance at Trump"s rally before the Capitol riot

Last week, the Travis County District Attorney's Office gave Paxton four days to hand over records tied to his January 6 rally appearance. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, left, next to his wife and Texas State Sen. Angela Paxton, speaks to anti-abortion activists at a rally outside the Supreme Court, Monday, Nov. 1, 2021.AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin A Texas prosecutor gave AG Ken Paxton four days to turn over records tied to his January 6 appearance.  Paxton refused the request and called it "meritless," the Texas Tribune reported.  The Travis County DA's office said Paxton broke the law by not disclosing his travel to the Capitol. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has refused a prosecutor's demand for information regarding his appearance at Donald Trump's rally before the January 6 Capitol riot, the Texas Tribune reported. In a letter to Paxton sent on January 13, Jackie Wood, director of public integrity and complex crimes at the Travis County District Attorney's Office said the attorney general had broken the law by not sharing records about his rally attendance or by not keeping records of it. The letter informed Paxton he would face a lawsuit if he didn't turn over the records of his communications within four days of receipt.The request came after five of Texas' biggest newspapers — the Austin American-Statesman, The Dallas Morning News, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Houston Chronicle, and the San Antonio Express-News – filed a complaint that Paxton was refusing to share records that should be public. Paxton said the Travis County district attorney's request was "meritless." In a letter sent on Friday, a lawyer for Paxton's office, Austin Kinghorn, said they had not violated any provision under the state's open records law. "Frustrated that they have failed to uncover anything worth reporting following 'numerous open records requests to AG Paxton office for various documents,' complainant newspaper editors have sought to leverage your office's authority to further their fishing expedition, or worse, manufacture a conflict between our respective offices that will give rise to publishable content for the complainants' media outlets," Kinghorn wrote about the five newspapers. Paxton's refusal to release records tied to his January 6 appearance comes after attorneys general are considering charges for illegitimate electors who falsified documents saying Trump won the majority of voters in states where he lost. Documents obtained by the watchdog group American Oversight in March 2021 showed Trump supporters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin submitted documents to Congress falsely claiming Trump won the states after the majority of votes actually went to Joe Biden. The January 6 House select committee is looking deeper into the illegitimate elector scheme and the role Trump and his associates played in it after it was revealed that Rudy Giuliani was tied to the effort. Both the Texas DA and AG offices did not respond to Insider's request for comment at the time of publication. Read the original article on Business Insider.....»»
