Trump’s indictment and arrest shocked America

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment against Trump will test the stability of the American justice system and its political morals.

The judge, who faced death threats from Bragg during the trial, warned Trump to be careful with his language. “He should not have made statements that could incite violence and civil unrest,” the former president said.

The case refers to a $130,000 hush-hush payment by then-Trump campaigner Michael Cohen to veteran movie star Stormy Daniels.

Prosecutors said he paid $30,000 to a former Trump Tower security guard who “admitted to having a history of children born to Trump out of wedlock.”

Moreover. Donald Trump is looking to launch several legal challenges after his impeachment in New York on Tuesday.

But even Trump critics like Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, have expressed doubts that Bragg has provided enough new information to support such a serious allegation.

The Tennessee Republican Party expelled 2 Democrats.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green has become a strong voice in Congress today.

But Trump When the Georgia congressman suggested he run for the US Senate in 2026, he wanted her to stand tall. “I would die for you,” he said.

Moreover. Marjorie Taylor Green compared Trump to Jesus before he was arrested and sentenced in New York.

Angel Reese of LSU knocks out Jill Biden

The first lady got the idea after watching Louisiana State beat Iowa State in the NCAA Women’s Championship.

“I know champions come to the White House, we always do. So I hope LSU does,” Jill Biden said. They’ve been playing so well, I’ll tell Joe to come to Iowa.

Usually the winners of the championship are invited to the White House, but never the losers.

It didn’t sit well with LSU star Angel Reese, the Final Four’s most popular player, who responded to the first lady’s criticism of Iowa State star Caitlin Clark late in the game. Clark himself once used a similar taunting move during the NCAA tournament.

If Iowa wins, Reese said he would not make the offer to Biden, who returned this week as a White House spokesman.

“(Iowa) could be the center of attention. We’re going to Obama,” Reese added. “We’re looking at Michelle. We’re looking at Barack.”

However, LSU’s athletic department said the team would accept the invitation.

Idaho and Wisconsin highlight the ongoing fight against abortion

Idaho and Wisconsin took very different approaches to abortion this week, separated by more than 1,200 physical miles.

Wisconsin voters elected Judge Janet Protasiewicz of Milwaukee to the state Supreme Court, perhaps pushing in a more liberal direction before she overturned a pre-Civil War law that barred abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

But anti-abortion activists had reason to celebrate when Idaho passed what many conservatives call the first law to restrict the “abortion business.”

Under the new law, adults are prohibited from giving abortion pills to minors and cannot help transport them across state lines without the consent of a parent or guardian. .

Penalties include two to five years in prison and assault by a parent or guardian of a minor.
