Rep. Summer Lee beats back primary challenge in Pennsylvania

Summer Lee wins Pa. Dem primaryRep. Summer Lee has won the Democratic primary for Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District, according to Decision Desk HQ, fending off a primary challenge amid frustrations over her views on the Israel-Hamas war.

A first-term member of the Squad and a rising star within the progressive coalition, Lee will go on to compete in the blue district in the general election, having withstood Edgewood Councilmember Bhavini Patel’s primary challenge.

Lee was a top target this cycle of Democrats and Republicans alike looking to oust the left-wing congresswoman from her western Pennsylvania seat. Her positions on the Israel-Hamas war, including calling for a cease-fire throughout the conflict and expressing pro-Palestinian sentiments, made her more vulnerable than other House progressives.

Trump urged to return docs nearly a year before search, FBI filing says

Cannon releases 400 pages of evidence

An associate of former President Trump told the FBI of advising Trump to return documents the National Archives was seeking nearly a year before agents searched his Mar-a-Lago home, according to newly unsealed filings.

The big picture: The summary of the unnamed associate's FBI interview was among a trove of documents that the judge handling Trump's classified documents case released with redactions on Monday.

  • Other revelations included that the Bureau initially referred to the Trump investigation with the code name "PLASMIC ECHO; Mishandling of Classified or National Defense Information."

Driving the news: The associate, identified in the filings only as "person 16," told the FBI that they had said to Trump while at Mar-a-Lago in Florida: "Whatever you have, give everything back. Let them come here and get everything. Don't give them a noble reason to indict you, because they will."


Takeaways from the Trump hush money trial: Opening statements and the first witness

Trump trialThe first criminal trial of Donald Trump is officially underway.

Prosecutors and Trump’s attorneys delivered opening statements and the first witness – a former National Enquirer publisher – was called Monday in the historic and unprecedented criminal trial of a former president.

Each side got their first chance to lay out a theory of the case for jurors. Prosecutors told jurors that the reimbursement of hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels was part of a larger conspiracy to influence the 2016 presidential election by hiding damaging information about Trump.

The fore...mer president’s attorneys responded by telling the jury that Trump was innocent and not involved in the creation of the 34 business records he’s charged with falsifying. They also pointedly added that there’s “nothing wrong with trying to influence an election.”


Columbia faculty members walk out after pro-Palestinian protesters arrested

Faculty members walk oout at ColumbiaA huge crowd of faculty members who teach at Columbia University in New York held a mass walk-out on Monday afternoon to protest the institution having called police to arrest students at a pro-Palestinian encampment protest last week.

The solidarity protest came as students put protest tents back up in the middle of campus on Monday after they were torn down last week when more than 100 arrests were made.

The university on Monday morning announced that classes would be held remotely after further days of unrest on the New York campus, following the arrest of pro-Palestinian protesters there last week.
