Trump to make history as first US president to face criminal trial
Quick Glance: Trump Faces Landmark Trial Over Hush Money Case
  • Donald Trump will go down in history as the first former president to stand trial in Manhattan on criminal charges. The historic case revolves around a potential sex scandal cover-up just days before the 2016 elections.

  • The prosecution alleges that Trump falsified business records to hide hush money payments aimed at influencing the election outcome. Trump maintains his innocence and refutes any involvement with Stormy Daniels.

  • The trial will feature key witnesses from Trump's inner circle testifying against him, including Michael Cohen and David Pecker. It will delve into the Oval Office, where Trump allegedly approved the cover-up.

  • Prosecutors must prove that Trump falsified business records with intent to commit or conceal another crime. Trump's defense is likely to focus on the legality of the hush money payments and attempt to distance him from the accounting handled by his employees.

Melania Privately Trashes Trump Trial as a ‘Disgrace’: Report
Quick Glance: Trump's Sex Life Unveiled as Hush Money Trial Begins
  • The opening day of Donald Trump’s criminal trial delved deep into his tabloid-fodder sex life, as lawyers and the judge debated how many salacious details jurors should eventually hear as they decide whether he broke the law to cover up hush money payments.

  • The historic first trial of a former U.S. president began Monday in a storied courthouse that has seen a host of high-profile cases over the years, from rap stars to movie moguls, but never one with such potential consequences for the nation and the world.

  • Despite Trump's open contempt for the trial, he was not disruptive in court but rather disinterested. However, Trump's lawyers managed to prevent jurors from being informed about specific allegations of sexual misconduct from 2016.

  • Prosecutors plan to highlight Trump's relationship with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and other women in court to show that he paid hush money to protect his political image.

Google arrests, suspends anti-Israel workers occupying offices for hours
Quick Glance: Google employees arrested for protesting collaboration with Israel
  • Several Google employees were arrested Tuesday evening at the company’s offices in New York City and Sunnyvale, California, after staging sit-ins to protest the tech giant’s work with the Israeli government.

  • The protests came a day after pro-Palestinian activists blocked highways, bridges, and airport entrances across the United States in demonstrations against Israel's invasion of Gaza and U.S. military support for the country.

  • A Google spokesperson confirmed that the employees were placed on administrative leave and had their system access cut off due to violating company policies that prohibit impeding the work of others.

  • Google has been negotiating with Israel's Defense Ministry and selling technology to the Israeli government, leading to tensions between employees and anti-Nimbus organizers advocating for an independent investigation into potential human rights violations.
