Quick Glance: Judge Dismisses Trump's Indictment in Classified Documents Case
  • A federal judge dismissed the indictment against former President Donald Trump in his classified documents case, ruling that the appointment of special counsel Jack Smith by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland was unconstitutional.

  • Political pundits immediately speculated that President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, could also have his case dismissed based on Cannon's ruling.

  • Cannon referenced Thomas multiple times in her ruling. The response to her decision was positive among Republicans and garnered criticism from Democrats.

  • Michael Waldman, a constitutional lawyer and president of the Brennan Center for Justice, compared Cannon's handling of the case to that of 'an eager member of Donald Trump’s defense team,' as reported to The New York Times.

Quick Glance: Fates of Alf Stars: From Success to Tragedy
  • Former child star Benji Gregory, known from the sitcom Alf, passed away at the age of 46. His death is not the only tragedy that befell the cast of the successful eighties series.

  • Gregory struggled with depression, bipolar disorder, and sleep problems, leading to the end of his career after Alf. Other cast members like Andrea Elson and Max Wright also faced challenges and were unable to replicate the success of the series.

  • The conditions on the set of Alf were tough, with no air conditioning, and actors had to film in extreme temperatures. The Alf puppet also required special arrangements, making work on set more challenging.

  • Years after the end of Alf, more cast members passed away due to illnesses, including Michu Meszaros and Max Wright. Wright battled alcohol problems and only found stability in his life through an online dating platform before succumbing to cancer.

Why are Democrats sticking with Biden? Ask the unions.
Quick Glance: Why Are Democrats Sticking with Biden? Ask the Unions.
  • Many of the nation’s most powerful unions confirm they are continuing to back President Biden, despite faltering support among some top Democrats, pointing to his willingness to support their priorities on almost every issue during his first term.

  • This week, Biden seems to be solidifying the support of various factions within the Democratic Party. He is set to attend a meeting with the top labor leaders at the AFL-CIO in Washington on Wednesday, although the invitation was extended prior to the debate.

  • As key constituencies rally around Biden after days of internal turmoil, organized labor stands firmly behind the president.

  • Biden's efforts to bolster union support could be crucial in reinforcing his appeal among the white and politically conservative building trades, who view him as a more politically acceptable choice for their membership compared to other alternatives like Vice President Harris.
