Photo: Angus Mordant/Bloomberg via Getty Images The Manhattan grand jury currently considering an indictment against Donald Trump met again Monday and heard additional testimony from a previous witness. The New York Times reports that the jury heard from David Pecker, the former publisher of the National Enquirer , who played a significant role in the hush money deal with Stormy Daniels. Pecker previously testified in January. After canceling its Wednesday meeting last week, the grand jury convened again Thursday but, according to the Associated Press, did not discuss the Trump case. An indictment of the former president could happen this week, but recent events have shown that the process is following its own timetable. CNN reported Thursday that the Manhattan district attorney’s office is determining whether to bring back Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, for more testimony or another witness entirely before the panel votes on an indictment. According to the New … [Read more...] about What Is Going On With the Trump Grand Jury?

Dems push transgender rights in the military so people can serve ‘authentically’
close Video How the Pentagon's $842B budget is the largest in its history and still may be inadequate Fox News chief national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin discusses the details of Biden’s military budget on ‘America Reports.’ Nearly two dozen House Democrats proposed legislation this week that would prohibit the Department of Defense from discriminating against transgender people who want to serve in the military. The bill from Rep. Sara Jacobs, R-Calif., is aimed at stopping Republicans from reestablishing former President Trump’s ban on enlisting anyone with gender dysphoria or who has already undergone gender transitioning. President Biden reversed that decision, and Jacobs and 22 other Democrats in the House are pushing for a new law that would prevent that Trump-era policy from returning. "Anyone willing and able to serve our country should be able to serve authentically," said Jacobs, who is also vice chair of the … [Read more...] about Dems push transgender rights in the military so people can serve ‘authentically’

Pence ordered to testify to grand jury on talks with Trump over 2020 election interference
close Video The American people are tired of a two-tiered justice system: Mike Pence Former Vice President Mike Pence discusses the politicization of government entities and how Americans are tired of politicized justice on ‘Hannity.’ A federal judge has ordered former Vice President Mike Pence to testify before a grand jury about conversations he had with former President Donald Trump in which they allegedly talked about how to overturn the 2020 election, according to two sources familiar with the case. The sealed order from Chief Judge James Boasberg is another legal setback for Trump and his efforts to block an ongoing special counsel Jack Smith's investigation into events leading up to the January 6, 2021 riots in the U.S. Capitol. Pence was subpoenaed last month by the Justice Department special counsel as part of the probe into the Jan. 6 riot. Pence's team filed a motion to block that subpoena, claiming that as vice president, his … [Read more...] about Pence ordered to testify to grand jury on talks with Trump over 2020 election interference
Is Michael Cohen’s Big Mouth Derailing the Trump Prosecution?
Shhh. Photo: MEGA/GC Images As we continue week two of the Donald Trump–indictment watch, questions abound. Is it really going to happen ? Did last week’s testimony from lawyer Robert Costello in defense of Trump successfully throw a wrench in the process? Does the testimony on Monday from David Pecker — the former publisher of the National Enquirer who helped arrange the hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels that appears to be at the center of the prospective prosecution — mean that the case is back on track for an indictment? And what, exactly, is the holdup? The answers to these questions are as elusive at the moment as they are tantalizing, but one thing has become clear: Key witness Michael Cohen and his pathological need for media attention have not been making things easier for the Manhattan district attorney’s office in recent weeks. The former Trump lawyer has always been a curious figure in this saga. He pleaded guilty to a slew of criminal charges during … [Read more...] about Is Michael Cohen’s Big Mouth Derailing the Trump Prosecution?
