Trump’s Jan. 6 Accomplice Jeffrey Clark Broke Attorney Ethics Rules, Legal Panel Says

Jeffrey ClarkA legal panel made a preliminary determination that former Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark violated rules of professional conduct and should be professionally disciplined after a hearing on his efforts to overturn the 2020 election on Thursday.

In the waning days before Jan. 6, 2021, Clark, then serving as acting assistant attorney general for the civil division at DOJ, sought to be appointed as acting attorney general in order to carry out former President Donald Trump’s orders to open investigations into false claims of voter fraud.


Georgia judge rejects Donald Trump request to dismiss election racketeering charges under 1st Amendment

Judge McAffeeSadow said in a statement Thursday that he respectfully disagreed with McAfee’s order but could potentially raise the issue again later.

The Georgia case is one of four criminal trials pending against Trump and he has pleaded not guilty in each of them. He previously tried to have Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis removed from the case because of her relationship with another prosecutor, but only special prosecutor Nathan Wade had to resign.

Trump and 18 co-defendants were charged with a racketeering conspiracy that tried to steal the 2020 election by urging state officials to overturn the results. Four of the co-defendants have pleaded guilty and the rest await trial.


Trump Media saved in 2022 by Russian-American under criminal investigation

Trump media saved by Russian

Donald Trump’s social media company Trump Media managed to go public last week only after it had been kept afloat in 2022 by emergency loans provided in part by a Russian-American businessman under scrutiny in a federal insider-trading and money-laundering investigation.

The former US president stands to gain billions of dollars – his stake is currently valued at about $4bn – from the merger between Trump Media and Technology Group and the blank-check company Digital World Acquisition Corporation, which took the parent company of Truth Social public.

But Trump Media almost did not make it to the merger after regulators opened a securities investigation into the merger in 2021 and caused the company to burn through cash at an extraordinary rate as it waited to get the green light for its stock market debut.


Jack Smith’s devastating response to Judge Cannon’s jury order

Jack SmithRemember when U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon floated a fringe legal theory that could help throw Donald Trump’s classified documents case in favor of the former president?

Well, special counsel Jack Smith just filed a devastating response, telling Cannon that he might have to challenge the Trump appointee on appeal if she doesn’t get it together.

As a refresher, Cannon asked the parties to file proposed jury instructions, regarding the federal charges alleging that Trump illegally retained national defense information. In doing so, she told them to consider two “scenarios,” both of which lend credence to the notion that the Presidential Records Act applies in this case. The problem is that the PRA is irrelevant to these criminal charges. So injecting the issue into the trial could lead the jury to think that Trump could do whatever he wanted with classified documents, which would obviously go against the criminal law that says otherwise.

Trump White House insider Hope Hicks expected to testify in New York hush money trial

Hope HIcks

Former White House spokesperson Hope Hicks is expected to testify in Donald Trump's upcoming New York hush money trial, according to multiple media reports.

Hicks served as the Trump 2016 presidential campaign press secretary, and later became communications director in the Trump White House. NBC News and CNN both reported on Hicks' expected testimony, citing a source familiar with the matter.

Hicks may have been present for discussions about paying adult film actress Stormy Daniels to keep her story about having an affair with Trump before he was president quiet, according to previously revealed court filings. The documents showed former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who made a $130,000 payment to Daniels, was in touch with Hicks at a time when an FBI agent investigating the matter believed a series of emails, text messages, and phone calls concerned preventing Daniels from going public.


Florida court clears the way for ballot measure on abortion rights – while granting 6-week ban

Abortion vote in Florida wins in Court

Abortion will officially be on the ballot in Florida this fall, after the state's Supreme Court on Monday issued one ruling approving a ballot measure that could expand access to the procedure, but another that paves the way for a strict six-week ban.

The ballot measure would guarantee abortion access through viability, often 24 weeks of pregnancy. With this, Floridians have the chance to essentially vote on whether to reinstate what was once the federal standard set by Roe v. Wade, before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the landmark case in 2022.
