Jim Bakker Suffers Stroke: Report

Published

on

Embattled televangelist Jim Bakker has suffered a stroke and will be taking a sabbatical from “The Jim Bakker Show,” his wife Lori Bakker announced in a Facebook post.

In her post, Lori announced that Bakker, 80, had a stroke and added, “For many years now, Jim has been working non-stop, working hard to bring incredible prophets and guests to our show, discovering and developing new products to share … and bringing forth the message for the days that we are living in. All of these projects, and the vigorous warfare that we have experienced in the last several weeks, have taken a huge toll on Jim’s health.”

“We are thankful that Jim is okay, and that he is now at home with our family,” she wrote from the show’s page. “Jim will be back!”

Bakker got in hot water for selling a fake coronavirus cure on his program. He was sued by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt for claiming a silver product could kill COVID-19.

“Anyone who has bought ‘Silver Solution’ from ‘The Jim Bakker Show’ should know that it cannot cure or treat coronavirus,” the Missouri Attorney General office announced in a statement.

On March 6, New York state Attorney General Letitia James ordered Bakker to quit misleading New Yorkers by falsely advertising the product “Silver Solution” as a reliable treatment. Four days later, the state of Missouri filed a lawsuit against Bakker and his production company for selling the bogus treatment.

Trump Is Officially Under Investigation For Fraud By The NY District Attorney: NYT

Published

on

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is “investigating President Donald Trump and his company for bank and insurance fraud,” the New York Times reported Monday.

According to The Times, “the office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.”

“The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.”

The newspaper also reported that Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

The news comes less than a month after the Supreme Court, in a major ruling on the limits of presidential power, cleared the way for Mr. Vance’s prosecutors to seek Mr. Trump’s financial records.

The Times also noted that the investigation is a “significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.”
