White House Correspondent Gateway Pundit's Co-Blogger Found Guilty of Multiple Firearms Crimes

Jim Hoft and his blog Gateway Pundit have long been known as purveyors of far right fake news, and now, in the era of the Trump Horror, Hoft's blog has actually been credentialed as a White House correspondent.

Today in Oregon, one of Jim Hoft's fellow bloggers at Gateway Pundit (and its equally bogus sister blog "Progressives Today"), Michael Aaron Strickland, was convicted of multiple felonies and misdemeanors for pulling a gun and threatening protesters at a demonstration in Portland: Guilty: Man who pulled gun out at 'Don't Shoot PDX' protest.

A man who pulled out a gun at a Don't Shoot Portland march and pointed it at a crowd of protesters in downtown Portland was found guilty Friday of 21 felony and misdemeanor crimes.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Thomas Ryan found Michael Aaron Strickland, 37, guilty of 10 counts of unlawful use of a weapon, 10 counts of menacing and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct for pointing his Glock semi-automatic handgun at 10 protesters.

Is this the first time in history a White House press correspondent is associated with a convicted felon?
