Eric Trump claims Putin could tell Donald Trump was ‘a very strong person’

Donald Trump has sued Hillary Clinton and other Democrats, claiming that they tried to rig the 2016 election by tying the former president’s campaign to Russia.

The move is not the only legal news today as the January 6 House select committee will meet to consider criminal contempt referrals for Donald Trump allies Dan Scavino and Pete Navarro.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump has withdrawn his endorsement from Alabama congressman and Senate candidate Mo Brooks, citing his longtime ally’s “horrible mistake” of suggesting that Republicans need to move on from the claim that the 2020 election was stolen.

Mr Trump accused the congressman of “going woke” in a lengthy statement. In a response, Mr Brooks revealed that from September 2021 onwards, Mr Trump repeatedly asked him to rescind the 2020 elections, immediately remove Joe Biden from the White House, reinstall him as president, and hold a new special election for the presidency – all of which the Alabama lawmaker says he knew to be legally impossible.

ICYMI: Ex-prosecutor says Trump ‘guilty of numerous felony violations’

A prosecutor who had been leading a criminal investigation into Donald Trump before quitting last month said in his resignation letter that he believes the former president is “guilty of numerous felony violations” and he disagreed with the Manhattan district attorney’s decision not to seek an indictment.

In the letter, published Wednesday by The New York Times, Mark Pomerantz told District Attorney Alvin Bragg there was “sufficient evidence to establish Mr. Trump’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt” of allegations he falsified financial statements to secure loans and burn his image as a wealthy businessman.

Republican official refuses to describe Joe Biden as “duly elected”

At the Democratic Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse had a run-in earlier with Republican Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, who previously served as head of the Republican Attorneys General Association. Questioning him at a Senate Judiciary Committee session that followed this week’s questioning of Ketanji Brown Jackson, Mr Whitehouse pressed Mr Marshall on his views of him about the 2020 election – and was met with terse intransigence.



Sheldon Whitehouse: “Is Joseph R. Biden of Delaware the duly elected and lawfully serving President of the United States of America?”
Steve Marshall: “He is the President of this country.”
SW: “Is he duly elected and lawfully serving President of the United States?”
YE: “He is the President of our country.”
SW: “Are you answering that omitting the language duly elected and lawfully serving, purposefully?”
YE: “I’m answering the question. He is the President of the United States.”
SW: “And you have no view to whether he was duly elected or is lawfully serving.”
YE: “I’m telling you he’s the President of the United States.”

Battle over election ‘fraud’ continues in Wisconsin

A group seeking to prove that the 2020 presidential election was stolen is today testifying in the Wisconsin statehouse. True the Vote, a Texas-based organization dedicated to the false claim that voter fraud was used to rob Donald Trump of victory, is set to testify to the state legislature’s elections committee – and in advance of its testimony, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has released the fact sheet below rebutting the group’s claims.

Wisconsin was one of several states that the Trump team argued had been stolen, and it has become one of his main focuses thanks to an ongoing (but likely doomed) investigation into the election results.
