The Latest: US Climate Envoy Kerry Welcomes Project Biden

O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) – A federal lawsuit accuses the National Rifle Association of violating campaign finance laws by using shell companies to illegally funnel up to $ 35 million to Republican candidates, including former President Donald Trump, Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri and others. The Campaign Legal Center filed a complaint Tuesday on behalf of a nonprofit gun control organization founded by former Democratic United States representative Gabby Giffords.

Judge questions Trump lawyers trying to protect January 6 documents

WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal judge questions Donald Trump’s efforts to deny Congress documents related to the Jan.6 attack on Capitol Hill. Judge Tanya Chutkan expressed her skepticism on Thursday when lawyers for the former president asked her to block the handing over of documents to a House committee. Chutkan said some of the committee’s requests dating back to April 2020 “are alarming in scope.” But she disagreed with claims by Trump’s attorneys that Congress had no goal to research Trump’s Jan.6 call logs, talking points and other notes. The judge said she would rule on the trial soon.

Witness: The gunshot victim rushed to Rittenhouse’s rifle

Eds: Correct the first name of Richie’s witness.

KENOSHA, Wisconsin (AP) – A witness at the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial said the first man to be shot in the streets of Kenosha appeared to “rush” to Rittenhouse’s gun in an attempt to remove it just before Rittenhouse drawn. Richie McGinniss is a video director for the conservative website The Daily Caller, which followed protester Joseph Rosenbaum chasing down Rittenhouse. He said Rosenbaum was rushing towards Rittenhouse and his momentum was on when he was shot. The senior prosecutor continued to pressure McGinniss to find out if Rosenbaum was actually falling when he was shot, as McGinniss said in a media interview days after the shooting.


Predominantly white jury puts race ahead in Arbery death trial

BRUNSWICK, Ga (AP) – The trial hasn’t even started and yet race issues are at the forefront of the case in which three white men are charged with murder for prosecuting and killing Ahmaud Arbery. The family of the slain 25-year-old black man was rocked on Wednesday when the jury selected for the case included just one black juror. Ben Crump is Arbery’s father’s lawyer. He called it “scandalous” that other potential black jurors were excluded to create what he called an “imbalanced jury”. Father and son Greg and Travis McMichael and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan are charged with murder and other crimes in Arbery’s death in February 2020. Many see the case as a question of whether the justice system treats black victims fairly. Judge Timothy Walmsley plans to start the trial on Friday.
