First co-defendant in Trump Georgia election case pleads guilty

Scott Hall pleads guilty

Scott Hall, one of 18 co-defendants of former President Donald Trump in the Georgia election interference case, pleaded guilty Friday to the charges against him.

Court allows Paxton accusers’ lawsuit to proceed

Ken Paxton

The Texas Supreme Court has sided with four former staff members of Attorney General Ken Paxton (R), making way for their whistleblower lawsuit to commence.

The Republican court rejected Paxton’s request to dismiss the lawsuit on Friday after the case was put on pause for a possible settlement. The whistleblowers, Blake Brickman, Mark Penley, David Maxwell and Ryan Vassar, asked the court to reinstate the case, just days after Paxton was acquitted on 16 articles of impeachment.

With Paxton’s dismissal request denied, the case will return to Travis County trial court, the Texas Tribune reported.

In a press conference on Monday, Brickman, the former Texas deputy attorney general for policy and strategy, said he and the other whistleblowers are “not going away.”

“For us, this case has always been about more than money. It’s about truth. It’s about justice,” Brickman said.


Proud Boy Who Vanished Before Jan. 6 Sentencing Arrested

Christopher Worrell captured

A Proud Boys member who went missing while awaiting sentencing for his violent role in the 2021 attack at the U.S. Capitol has been taken into custody following a monthlong hunt.

Christopher Worrell was arrested by FBI agents and local deputies at his home in Naples, Florida, on Thursday, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The member of the extremist group was on house arrest awaiting sentencing for assaulting police officers with pepper spray gel during the riot when he took off, prompting an arrest warrant.

Worrell was found guilty in May on multiple charges related to the riot. Prosecutors asked a judge to sentence him to 14 years. Worrell, who denied the charges, called himself a “political prisoner” and claimed his civil rights were being violated.


Biden blasts Trump, invokes pleas for democracy in speech honoring McCain

Biden blasts Trump

President Biden hit former President Trump in a Thursday speech dedicated to honoring the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Biden, in making an impassioned plea for democracy and respect for the U.S. Constitution, also called on Americans to ask just what it wants.

“Do we still believe in the Constitution? Do we believe in the basic decency and respect? The whole country should ask themselves … what it wants,” Biden said in remarks in Tempe, Ariz.

“All of us are being asked right now, what will we do to maintain our democracy? Will we, as John wrote, ‘never quit.’ Will we not hide from history, but make history? Will we put partisanship aside and put country first. I say we must, and we will,” Biden said, invoking McCain, his longtime friend and fellow senator.




Trump drops bid to move Georgia election case to federal court

Donald Trump will not ask for trial to be moved

Attorneys for Donald Trump have notified a Fulton County court that the former president will not seek to have his Georgia election interference case removed to federal court.

The move comes three weeks after a judge denied a bid by co-defendant Mark Meadows, Trump's former chief of staff, to have his case moved.

Meadows had sought the move to federal court on the basis that his alleged actions were all performed while he was acting "under color" of his role as chief of staff.

Trump, Meadows, and 17 others have pleaded not guilty to all charges in a sweeping racketeering indictment for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia. The former president says his actions were not illegal and that the investigation is politically motivated.

e move comes three weeks after a judge denied a bid by co-defendant Mark Meadows, Trump's former chief of staff, to have his case moved.



Trump New York fraud trial cleared to start Monday after appeals panel ruling

Fraud trial to begin next week

The New York civil fraud trial of former President Donald Trump and his company is back on track to start Monday after a state appeals court lifted a temporary stay of the case.

The order Thursday came hours after New York Attorney General Letitia James said she plans to call Trump and three of his adult children as witnesses in the case.

Trump, the Trump Organization and his two adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are accused by James of misstating the values of multiple real estate assets.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron on Tuesday found the defendants liable for fraudulently inflating those properties and other assets.


AOC accuses Republicans of fabricating evidence in Biden impeachment

AOC accuses GOP of fabrigating impeachment evidence

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez prompted three Republican witnesses to directly concede they had no first-hand knowledge of criminal actions by Joe Biden in a dramatic moment during a Republican-led impeachment hearing into the president on Thursday.

The New York Democrat also accused Republicans of presenting a fabricated text message between Jim and Hunter Biden – the president’s brother and son, respectively – that she pointed out omitted critical context. Representative Byron Donalds of Florida displayed a selectively edited exchange between the two in the format of iMessages, which was not how the committee originally received the communication.
