Trump rages at judge hours before hush money case begins
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.

Trump, Johnson to tout bill to prevent noncitizen voting: Report
Quick Glance: Focus on Support for Israel and Ukraine by Mike Johnson
  • House Speaker Mike Johnson is heavily advocating for support for Israel and Ukraine while trying to push a national security package through the House.

  • Johnson faces the challenge of juggling the Republican Party's divided support for Kyiv's defense while feeling the pressure to pass a comprehensive aid package for U.S. allies.

  • In his quest to find ways to promote funding for Ukraine, Johnson is engaging in discussions with the White House and former president Donald Trump. The divisive dynamic within the party and the urgency of the situation in Ukraine present a significant challenge for Johnson.

  • Johnson must craft a package that includes some policy wins for Republicans while also gaining Democratic approval. Despite concerns from some progressive Democrats regarding support for Israel, most Democratic lawmakers have rallied behind the Senate-passed package.

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.

Supreme Court justices signal wariness of law used for Jan. 6 prosecutions
Quick Glance: Justices Question Obstruction Charge Against Jan. 6 Rioter
  • The Supreme Court is considering whether Jan. 6 rioters can be charged with obstructing an official proceeding, potentially impacting Trump's election interference case.

  • During Tuesday's hearing, justices expressed concerns about the Justice Department's use of the obstruction statute to prosecute those involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

  • A potential consequence of a ruling in favor of Fischer could affect Trump, although this outcome is not definitive. Prosecutors in Trump's case have emphasized that even if Fischer succeeds, Trump's actions would still be governed by a more restrictive interpretation of the law.

  • The provision was enacted in 2002 as part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, passed after the Enron accounting scandal. Both Fischer and Trump argue that the obstruction law does not apply to their alleged conduct, meaning the charges should be dropped.
