Local power lifting team preparing for first Special Olympics event in 20 years

A local power lifting team comprised of Special Olympics athletes is preparing for the ‘Spartan Showdown’ this weekend. 

The power lifters will compete at ABC Fitness in Latham at 10 a.m. on Sunday. This is in preparation for the Special Olympics State Games this summer. 

This is the first competition the group will have since it started back in October. There hadn’t been a Special Olympics power lifting team in close to 20 years. 

Thanks to the help of coaches volunteering and the gym donating the space, the athletes are able to compete. 

Man accused in Troy stabbing arrested

The Troy Police Department says a man accused in a stabbing at Dunkin Donuts on March 4 has been arrested.

Police say as officers were closing in on Zack Beckner, 18, he fled to Virginia.

On Tuesday, police received a tip that Beckner was back in Troy, located him, and arrested him.

Beckner was charged with Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, Robbery in the First Degree, and Criminal Possession of a Weapon.

He was remanded to Rensselaer County Jail.

Police say the stabbing happened during an argument between Beckner and another man.

Bench dedicated to teen a year after his death

The town of Colonie came together on the one year anniversary of Niko Dinovo death to dedicate a park bench at the park he loved. Dinovo died due to injuries he suffered following a 2016 crash. 

“I hope more years to come this is the same turnout and the same people that are here,” said Niko’s brother Michael Dinovo.

The family announced the launch of “Niko’s Gifts” at the event. It’s a partnership with Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley.

“People will pick out six things because that was Niko’s favorite number of necessities that they need just to get through the night,” said Niko’s mother Alicia Dinovo.

The bench was the idea of Tammy Signer-Holmes, who didn’t know the family, but was moved by Niko’s story. Signer-Holmes went to the town, getting it not only donate the bench, but at the memorial it was announced the town will also raise money to add a sculpture to go behind the memorial.

Records show special counsel zeroed in on Cohen early on

NEW YORK (AP) – Hundreds of pages of court records made public Tuesday revealed that special counsel Robert Mueller quickly zeroed in on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, in the early stages of his Russia probe.

The heavily blacked-out records, released by a judge at the request of news organizations, show that Mueller was investigating Cohen by July 2017 – much earlier than previously known.

That was two months after Mueller was appointed to investigate Moscow’s election interference and practically a year before an FBI raid on Cohen’s home and office.

The full scope of Mueller’s interest in Cohen is not clear from the documents, which include search warrant applications and other records. More extensive files from the special counsel investigation remain under seal in Washington.

But the documents made public Tuesday show that Mueller’s investigators early on began looking into possible misrepresentations Cohen made to banks to shore up his financially troubled taxi business.

They were also initially interested in money that was flowing into Cohen’s bank accounts from consulting contracts he signed after Trump got elected. Prosecutors were looking into whether Cohen failed to register as a foreign agent.

Some of the payments he received were from companies with strong foreign ties, including a Korean aerospace company, a bank in Kazakhstan and an investment firm affiliated with a Russian billionaire.

By February 2018, though, the records show Mueller had handed off portions of his investigation to federal prosecutors in Manhattan. And by the spring of 2018, those prosecutors had expanded their investigation to include payments Cohen made to buy the silence of porn star Stormy Daniels and a Playboy centerfold, both of whom claimed to have had affairs with Trump.

The newly released documents indicate authorities continue to probe campaign violations connected to those hush money payments. Nearly 20 pages related to the matter were blacked out at the direction of a judge who said he wanted to protect an ongoing investigation by New York prosecutors.

Where that investigation is headed is unclear. But prosecutors have said Trump himself directed Cohen to arrange the hush money. The president has denied any wrongdoing.

Cohen ultimately pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations over those payments. He also pleaded guilty to tax evasion, making false statements to banks and lying to Congress about Trump’s plans to build a skyscraper in Moscow. He was not charged with failing to register as a foreign agent.

He is scheduled to begin serving a three-year prison sentence in May.

Lanny Davis, an attorney for Cohen, said Tuesday that the release of the search warrants “furthers his interest in continuing to cooperate and providing information and the truth about Donald Trump and the Trump Organization to law enforcement and Congress.”

The FBI raided Cohen’s Manhattan home and office last April – the first public sign of a criminal investigation that has proved an embarrassment for Trump.

The newly released records show that several months earlier, in July 2017, Mueller’s office got a judge to grant him authority to read 18 months’ worth of Cohen’s emails.

In their investigation, Mueller’s prosecutors also obtained Cohen’s telephone records and went so far as to use a high-tech tool known as a Stingray or Triggerfish to pinpoint the location of his cellphones.

FBI agents also scoured Cohen’s hotel room and safe deposit box and seized more than 4 million electronic and paper files, more than a dozen mobile devices and iPads, 20 external hard drives, flash drives and laptops.

Both Cohen and Trump cried foul at the time over the raids, with Cohen’s attorney calling them “completely inappropriate and unnecessary” and the president taking to Twitter to declare that “Attorney-client privilege is dead!”

A court-ordered review ultimately found only a fraction of the seized material to be privileged.

Tuesday’s release of documents came nearly six weeks after U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley III partially granted a request by several media organizations, including The Associated Press, that the search warrant be made public because of the high public interest in the case.

But he ordered certain material withheld, acknowledging prosecutors’ concerns that a wholesale release of the documents “would jeopardize an ongoing investigation and prejudice the privacy rights of uncharged third parties.”

“The unsealed records provide significant insight into the investigations of Michael Cohen and serve as an important safeguard for public accountability,” AP’s director of media relations, Lauren Easton, said Tuesday.

David E. McCraw, vice president and deputy general counsel for The New York Times, which initiated the request for the documents, said he is hopeful Pauley will approve the release of additional materials in May after the government updates the judge on its investigation.
