A Portland teacher, who originally had her charges dropped following an arrest at a violent Antifa protest, has had her charges reinstated after police submitted additional evidence, The Post Millenial reports.

Malia Lynne Trammell (or Treammell), 29, was a Portland high school teacher who was indicted on one count of felony riot, felony identity theft, second-degree criminal mischief, interfering with a peace officer and third-degree escape, according to a report by Andy Ngo and Mia Cathell.

According to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, in Aug. 2020, Trammell and a group of rioters used metal spike devices to puncture a Portland Police vehicle’s tire during a riot outside a police station.

The riot became violent and officers attempted to arrest Trammell after she allegedly damaged a police vehicle. Trammell slipped out of her backpack and escaped. However, she fell while turning a corner and was arrested by police. Officers recovered multiple rebar spike devices in her backpack, according to the report.

Trammell was reportedly released without bail last summer and her charges were dropped by district attorney Mike Schmidt.

Five months later, the Portland Police Bureau completed an investigation and re-submitted the case to the district attorney’s office. The charges were then reinstated by the grand jury.

According to the report, Trammell has also been accused of faking her identity to authorities.

Trammell’s arraignment was held January 20, 2021 and she is scheduled to appear again in court March 10.

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
