What’s next in the Trump classified documents case?
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: Ukraine Conflict: Moscow Times Declared 'Undesirable' by Russia
  • Russia has labeled The Moscow Times as an 'undesirable organization' due to its coverage of President Vladimir Putin's actions in the Ukraine conflict, further restricting independent journalism under the Kremlin's control.

  • This decision poses a threat of legal action in Russia for journalists and affiliates of the publication, along with a blockade on accessing their reports.

  • Following the conflict's onset, The Moscow Times relocated its newsroom out of Russia in response to legislation criminalizing any attempt to undermine the military's actions. Similarly, various media outlets, such as Bloomberg News, exited Russia while continuing their coverage of the conflict and its aftermath.

  • Currently facing espionage charges in Russia, Wall Street Journal correspondent, Evan Gershkovich, was apprehended during a reporting assignment in Yekaterinburg last March.

Quick Glance: Political Analysts and Experts React to SC Verdict on Reserved Seats
  • Reactions from analysts and legal experts on the Supreme Court verdict declaring the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) eligible for reserved seats, its legal significance, and implications for the country's political future have poured in.

  • The 8-5 majority ruling announced by the 13-member full court bench nullified the Peshawar High Court's decision upholding the Election Commission of Pakistan's denial of reserved seats to the SIC.

  • The judges who disagreed with the majority judgment include Chief Justice Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa and Justices Yahya Afridi, Amin-ud-Din Khan, Jamal Khan Mandokhail, and Naeem Akhtar Afghan.

  • The Supreme Court's verdict ensures that PTI is entitled to its reserved seats, reinforcing judicial independence and the rule of law, despite the government's attempts to manufacture a 2-3 majority based on seats taken from PTI.
