Trump demands recusal of Judge Chutkan in federal 2020 election interference case

Tanya ChutkanFormer President Trump on Monday formally demanded the recusal of the federal judge overseeing his 2020 election subversion case in Washington, D.C.

Trump’s attorneys cited statements U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan made while sentencing two previous Jan. 6 defendants that appeared to reference Trump, arguing the comments create a perception that Chutkan prejudged Trump’s guilt before he was charged.

“Judge Chutkan has, in connection with other cases, suggested that President Trump should be prosecuted and imprisoned,” Trump’s attorneys wrote in court filings.

“Such statements, made before this case began and without due process, are inherently disqualifying,” they continued. “Although Judge Chutkan may genuinely intend to give President Trump a fair trial — and may believe that she can do so — her public statements unavoidably taint these proceedings, regardless of outcome.”

The Hill left a message with Chutkan’s chambers requesting comment on the former president’s recusal motion.




Republicans threaten to impeach newly elected Wisconsin supreme court judge

Janet ProtasiewiczRepublicans in Wisconsin are threatening to remove from office the newly elected state supreme court justice Janet Protasiewicz if she refuses to recuse herself from cases involving gerrymandering. The effort comes on the heels of Republicans in the state senate advancing a move to oust the state’s top elections official.

The efforts to remove Protasiewicz and the Wisconsin elections commission administrator, Meagan Wolfe, from office have been decried by Democrats and government watchdog groups as undemocratic and could affect the administration of elections in 2024.


Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island erupts again after two-month pause

Kilauea erupts again

Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, began erupting after a two-month pause, displaying glowing lava that is a safe distance from people and structures in a national park on Hawaii’s Big Island.

The Hawaii volcano observatory said the eruption was observed on Sunday afternoon at the summit of Kilauea.

The observatory said gases released by the eruption will cause volcanic smog downwind of Kilauea. People living near the park should try to avoid volcanic particles spewed into the air by the eruption, the observatory said.

The volcano’s alert level was raised to warning status and the aviation color code went to red as scientists evaluate the eruption and associated hazards.

Jamie Raskin says GOP debunked itself

In his quest to uncover evidence of corruption by President Joe Biden, House Oversight Committee chair James Comer (R-Ky.) has only managed to undermine his key allegations against the president, according to the committee’s top Democrat.

“Chairman Comer’s investigation has conclusively disproven the Republican allegations against President Biden,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said Monday in a statement accompanying a report summarizing the committee’s work so far this year.


'I'm drowning': Black teen cried for help as white teen tried to kill him, police say

Goose Pond

A 14-year-old boy is facing charges including attempted murder after police in Massachusetts say he tried to drown a Black teen in a "racially motivated" attack.

The attack took place July 19 at the typically peaceful and scenic Goose Pond in Chatham when the defendant allegedly called the other boy racial slurs, threw stones at him and tried to drown him, the Chatham Police Department reported.

Chatham is a seaside town at the southeast tip of Cape Cod.

Cape and Islands District Attorney Robert Galibois said a Barnstable County grand jury indicted the defendant, a town local, on the felony charge on Aug. 31. The teen, charged as a youthful offender, was also indicted on one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.


Watch Live: New York City pauses to remember those killed in 9/11 terror attacks

Remembering 9/11 New York City and the world are remembering 9/11 this morning in Lower Manhattan, where the Twin Towers fell.

Twenty-two years have passed, but for many 9/11 feels like just yesterday. Some even remember the exact moment they learned the news, a day forever in our minds.

CBS New York's John Dias is live at the September 11th Memorial and Museum with more on what's ahead today.

There will be moments of silence throughout the morning to honor the men, women and children who died in 9/11.

"It all comes flying back, you know, never goes away," Karen Messemer told John Dias at CBS News.

Messemer had plans to marry her longtime boyfriend, 34-year-old Firefighter Durrell Pearsall. But on 9/11, he bravely ran toward danger.

"He went into Tower 2 and tried saving as many people and getting them out of the building," Messemer said.


Christie vows to 'follow' Trump if he skips the next GOP debates: 'Wherever he goes, I’ll go'

Christie will follow TrumpFormer New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vowed that if former President Donald Trump does not participate in future Republican debates, he’ll change his campaign schedule in an effort to set up his own faceoff with the former president.

Christie, Trump’s most vocal critic in the crowded field of Republican presidential hopefuls, has long criticized the former president’s refusal to attend GOP primary debates. Trump skipped the first Republican debate last month, and he is not expected to show up at the second debate later this month at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, California.

“Did Trump diffuse your strategy of going toe-to-toe with him by staying off the debate stage?” Fox News’ “MediaBuzz” host Howard Kurtz asked Christie in an interview that aired Sunday.


What Ginni Thomas and Leonard Leo wrought: How a justice’s wife and a key activist started a movement

Leonard Leo and Ginni ThomasThe Supreme Court’s decision in the 2010 Citizens United case transformed the world of politics. It loosened restrictions on campaign spending and unleashed a flow of anonymous donor money to nonprofit groups run by political activists.

In the months before the ruling dropped in January of that year, a group of conservative activists came together to create just such an organization. Its mission would be to, at the time, block then-President Barack Obama’s pet initiatives.

The activists included Federalist Society leader Leonard Leo and his ideological soulmate, a hard-edged activist named Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

He was Mormon royalty. Now his lawsuit against the church is a rallying cry.

James Huntsman

James Huntsman’s family is sometimes called the “Mormon Kennedys,” with members whose titles have included governor, ambassador, billionaire and apostle. For decades, he was a committed church member, tithing 10 percent of his income, as the faith expects.

But when another church member filed an IRS whistleblower complaint in 2019, Huntsman’s theological and spiritual doubts shifted to anger, and he demanded his money back. David Nielsen’s complaint alleged that the church had been hoarding $100 billion in tithes and had used a few billion in tax-free dollars meant for charity to build an upscale mall.
