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.

Biden Energy Secretary Subject of Ethics Complaint for Promoting Electric Company She Held $1.6 Million in Stock
President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has received an ethics complaint for promoting an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held over a million dollars of stock in. She did so all while being a part of the executive branch in Biden’s administration.
Breitbart reports Granholm, “who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.”
Critics say Granholm has promoted Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. Additionally, they say Granholm’s promotion of Proterra has increased its visibility and therefore the value of her stock before she was required to sell her shares due to ethics rules.
As of Monday, the company had a market cap of $2.6 billion. Granholm also promoted Burlingame, a California electric vehicle company, at the same time “Democrats in Congress were crafting – and ultimately passing – Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which dramatically increases Granholm’s authority as energy secretary to advance private sector companies in the transition to an electric vehicle-based transportation infrastructure” reports Breitbart.
The infrastructure package “grants as much as $174 billion to green vehicles and $456 billion to zero-emission buses to ‘replace 50,000 diesel transit vehicles and electrify at least 20 percent of our yellow school bus fleet’ and ‘to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.”
Granholm’s involvement with Proterra started in March of 2017 when the company announced she would be joining its board ostensibly due to her experience with the automotive sector when she served as Michigan’s governor from 2003 to 2011. Proterra hoped to use Granholm’s “track record for producing a high-quality clean energy and transportation workforce in the Midwest” to launch the company into the “next phase of strategic growth and national deployment,” its press release explained. During her time on the board, Granholm supplemented her considerable income by simultaneously serving on the boards and consulting for various left-wing organizations as well, such as American Bridge PAC and Media Matters.
