Trump classified documents trial date
set for Aug. 14

A Florida federal judge on Tuesday scheduled the criminal trial of former President Donald Trump for his alleged illegal retention of classified government documents to begin Aug. 14. But experts do not expect the trial to begin nearly so early, given the time needed to resolve complicated legal issues before a jury could hear testimony and be presented with evidence. Trump, who is seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, was indicted earlier this month on more than three dozen criminal charges related to his keeping hundreds of classified records after he left the White House in January 2021. If the trial date holds, it would come just over a week before

Fast track. This brings back bad memories of the criminal prosecutors who persecuted senator Ted Stevens for partisan reasons.

There is no reason this trial cannot start now. Trump has been under investigation for this for 2 years. Make your case, or get out of town.

As soon as his lawyers quash one indictment, two more will pop up in its place. Facts be damned.

Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal ran an op-ed by Justice Samuel Alito titled Justice Samuel Alito: ProPublica Misleads Its Readers. Justice Alito was responding to an innuendo-filled screed that appeared in ProPublica called Justice Samuel Alito Took Luxury Fishing Vacation With GOP Billionaire Who Later Had Cases Before the Court (sorry, no links given to slander mongers). What made the story and op-ed so interesting was that it was not a conservative jurist responding to another stupid “gotcha” story. Justice Alito’s response to ProPublica was published five hours before ProPublica ran the story containing its contrived allegations. This is the Editor’s Note from the Wall Street Journal:

Appearing before the House Judiciary committee on Wednesday, Special Counsel John Durham defended his probe into the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, asserting he found “troubling violations of law and policy” as well as bias among key officials. The report was published in mid-May and determined that the FBI’s investigation into allegations of collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia was improperly opened. Durham also found several examples of the agency mishandling the investigation once it was opened. The special counsel added that in the intervening years, FBI employees have come to him and apologized for the agency’s conduct.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy urged House Republicans to vote against the resolution brought forward by GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado forcing a vote to impeach President Joe Biden this week, arguing now is not the right time, multiple sources in the closed door meeting told CNN. McCarthy argued that Republicans should let committee investigations play out and warning that jumping to impeachment now could threaten their slim majority, the sources said. The speaker noted that House Republicans have taken back the House five times in the last 100 years, and two of those times lost the majority the next cycle. “What majority do we want to be,” McCarthy asked his conference,

Disney’s chief diversity officer is leaving the entertainment conglomerate after a six-year run. Latondra Newton, who joined the Burbank-based studio in Feb. 2017 after leading Toyota’s inclusion efforts, is leaving Disney “to pursue other endeavors,” wrote chief human resources officer Sonia Coleman in a memo on Tuesday. Newton is said to be joining another corporate board as she steps away from Disney. A search for a new chief of diversity, inclusion and equity efforts is set to begin. The executive’s tenure at Disney ran concurrent to Hollywood’s increasing (and halting) efforts to amplify representation in the industry onscreen and off.

During a portion of an interview with the Fox News Channel that took place on Monday and was aired on Tuesday’s broadcast of “Special Report,” 2024 Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump stated that while “there are people that say I saved 100 million lives” with the coronavirus vaccine, “I really don’t want to talk about it, because, as a Republican, it’s not a great thing to talk about, because, for some reason, it’s just not.” And that he does oppose mandates, but left the matter up to state governors. Trump also said that his 2024 rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) pushed the vaccine before turning against it.

The House is set to vote on a revamped resolution to censure Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Wednesday after the chamber blocked a similar measure targeting the California Democrat last week. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) called the revised measure to the floor as a privileged resolution on Tuesday, which forces the House to take action on the measure. Democrats are expected to make a procedural motion to table the measure when it comes to the floor for a vote on Wednesday, which would require majority support. The move from Luna comes after the House blocked her initial Schiff censure resolution last week. Twenty Republicans joined Democrats

The Supreme Court rejected an appeal on Tuesday from a Christian college in Missouri that sued the Biden administration over a requirement to open dorm rooms and shared shower spaces to members of the opposite sex. The College of the Ozarks asked the justices to block the Department of Housing and Urban Development directive that added "gender identity" to the definition of "sex" in the 1968 Fair Housing Act. "Because the college's faith teaches that sex is based on male-female biology, not gender identity, the college assigns its dorms, roommates, and intimate spaces by sex and communicates that policy to students," the college told the Supreme Court in its appeal.

Former President Donald Trump’s support appears to have softened following his indictment and arrest on federal charges, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. Most Americans approve of Trump’s indictment stemming from his alleged mishandling of classified documents after leaving office, even as 71% say politics played a role in that charging decision. Though Trump continues to lead the GOP field by a wide margin in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination for president, the poll suggests that his support has declined, as have positive views of him among Republican and Republican-leaning voters. Nearly a quarter now say they would not consider backing his candidacy under any circumstances.

The U.S. in early 2020 disrupted a plot by Russian President Vladimir Putin to assassinate a former high-ranking Russian spy turned CIA-informant in Miami. The episode, reported Monday by The New York Times, illustrates another example of Putin’s hard-line toward perceived enemies that have played out in assassination efforts that take place inside Russia and across the world. Putin’s target was Aleksandr Poteyev, a former Russian intelligence official who in 2010 reportedly helped the FBI identify a network of Russian spies living in suburbs and cities along the East Coast, who were living under deep cover with false names and working ordinary jobs in an attempt to establish

Pixar film "Elemental," which features the studio's first "non-binary" character, according to a voice actor for the film, earned only $29.5 million in its opening weekend. It was the lowest opening weekend ever for Pixar, The New York Times reported Sunday. That was despite creative direction from Pixar, one of the most famous studios in the entertainment business, and support from Disney, which owns Pixar. Outlets around the country took notice of the movie's dismal performance. The movie "fell short of already-low expectations," Variety reported. "Pixar’s ‘Elemental’ falls flat," The New York Times headlined Sunday. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the move was "iced by moviegoers" along with "The Flash,"

This figure is approximately double what was originally estimated and allegedly will be utilized for future security packages. Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh provided clarification on the nature of the error, explaining that the military services had used the replacement cost rather than the book value of equipment pulled from Pentagon stocks and sent to Ukraine.
