New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell has filled paperwork requesting the disbarment of attorneys working on behalf of President Donald Trump's campaign, citing "attempts to overturn the election and demolish democracy." What are the details? Pascrell wrote the legal disciplinary authorities in five states — Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and New York — last week requesting the "severest sanction" against Rudy Giuliani and 22 other Trump attorneys: "revocation of their law licensures." Speaking about Giuliani specifically, Pascrell claimed the former New York City mayor has violated rules governing the professional conduct of lawyers by participating in "frivolous lawsuits," using the court system to "assault public confidence in the United States electoral system," and engaging "in conduct involving dishonest, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." "The egregious pattern of behavior by Mr. Giuliani to effectuate Mr. Trump's sinister arson is a danger not just to our legal system but is also unprecedented in our national life. In carrying out that perversion, Mr. Giuliani has clearly violated the New York Rules of Professional Conduct

Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. Justin Sullivan/Getty ImagesA large indoor party where guests weren't wearing masks was reportedly held at ex-Uber CEO Travis Kalanick's New York City penthouse in September. In a story featured in New York Magazine's The Cut, writer Cat Marnell describes attending the party, saying there were "tons of people there, and of course no one was wearing a mask." Kalanick did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment on the event, but a representative told The Cut that "he had lent his apartment to a friend and was unaware of the party." Vanity Fair reported earlier this year that Kalanick hosted an outdoor party at his Los Angeles home when such gatherings were restricted due to a surge in coronavirus cases in Southern California.

British comic legend and Monty Python star John Cleese over the weekend refused to submit to a woke social media mob accusing him of "transphobia" for an old tweet supporting author J.K. Rowling. Cleese, 81, relentlessly and hilariously mocked his accusers, at one point jokingly asking if he was "allowed" to identify as "a Cambodian police woman" if he so desired. The comedian, who has come under fire from woke Twitter before and has vigorously defended free speech each time, was accused of standing in solidarity with "transphobia" after a Twitter user reposted one of Cleese's tweets from September in which he told his followers he signed a letter of solidarity with Rowling. Transgender activists on the left have frequently directed their outrage at Rowling because of her criticism of transgender political demands for any man who identifies as a woman to be allowed in bathrooms or changing rooms reserved for natal women and girls. Cleese, by supporting Rowling, was by extension accused of "standing in solidarity with transphobia and discrimination." What would you like me to tell, Mr Joughin ?
General Motors will recall 5.9 million vehicles with potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators after a US safety agency said Monday it had rejected the Detroit automaker’s petition to avoid the callback. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said GM must recall the 2007-2014 model year trucks and SUVs because the inflators “are at risk of the same type of explosion after long-term exposure to high heat and humidity as other recalled Takata inflators.” GM has estimated in securities filings it would cost $1.2 billion if it were required to replace air bag inflators it had sought to avoid fixing. The company had argued the recalls were unnecessary because they did not pose a safety risk. GM said Monday it still believed “a recall of these vehicles is not warranted based on the factual and scientific record.” The company said it “will abide by NHTSA’s decision and begin taking the necessary steps.” The defect, which leads in rare instances to air bag inflators rupturing and sending potentially deadly metal fragments flying, prompted the largest automotive recall in US history of about 63 million inflators. Worldwide, about 100 million inflators by 19 major automakers were recalled. The recall includes some Cadillac
