Former President Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to intervene in the legal fight over classified documents the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago home. Trump’s team filed an emergency appeal on Tuesday asking the high court to overturn a lower court’s ruling and allow a third-party special master to review more than 100 documents taken in August. The ex-president’s lawyers state that it is crucial for the special master to access the material in order to ‘determine whether documents bearing classification markings are in fact classified, and regardless of classification, whether those records are personal records or Presidential records’. ‘Since President Trump had absolute authority over classification decisions during his Presidency, the current status of any disputed document cannot possibly be determined solely by reference to the markings on that document,’ reads the application. ‘The unchallenged views of the current Justice Department would supersede … [Read more...] about Donald Trump calls on Supreme Court to intervene in Mar-a-Lago documents probe

Former President Donald Trump 's apparent plans to reside in his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida may be in contravention of a 1993 agreement with the Town of Palm Beach, which limits his stay to seven consecutive days and 21 days per year. After leaving Washington, D.C. hours before President Joe Biden 's inauguration, Trump and his wife Melania moved to the resort. The change of address, which had taken place over a week ago since the couple's departure from the White House, may pose an issue in the long run. Upon his arrival in Florida, the former president was greeted by a small crowd holding signs such as "Pres. Trump Won" and "Welcome Home." Others, however, were not too enthused by his return.

The agreement seems to have not been strictly enforced … [Read more...] about Trump’s Return to Mar-a-Lago May Be Interrupted by Limited Stay Agreement
Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer said that he believed current frontrunners former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Bernie Sanders could both beat President Donald Trump in the general election, but argued that he personally has the best shot to win on the economy. Steyer, a billionaire former hedge fund manager, has been a staunch Trump critic since the president's election and launched the Need to Impeach campaign. So far, the wealthy Democratic contender has failed to gain traction in Iowa and New Hampshire, but appears to be polling well in South Carolina. Asked if Buttigieg and Sanders could win against Trump during a Wednesday interview with CNN , Steyer said firmly "sure they can." He then pivoted to explain how he would be the best candidate to beat Trump by challenging his economic record. "We need somebody who can win on the economy," Steyer said. "It's very obvious that Trump is running on the economy. I mean, he talks about it every single day." "I can … [Read more...] about Tom Steyer Says He Can Take Trump ‘Down On the Economy’

John Raoux/AP hide caption toggle caption John Raoux/AP The book version of "2,000 Mules," the latest project from author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, was abruptly recalled due to an unspecified "error." John Raoux/AP For months, the conservative provocateur Dinesh D'Souza teased that the book version of his widely debunked film "2,000 Mules" would provide compelling new evidence that the 2020 election was "stolen." The film has been repeatedly promoted by former President Donald Trump, who even hosted a screening at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Then, just before the book's scheduled release - and after copies had already arrived in stores - D'Souza's publisher, Regnery, abruptly pulled the book from shelves and delayed the e-book release, citing an unspecified "publishing error." … [Read more...] about A publisher abruptly recalled the ‘2,000 Mules’ election denial book.
