Trump says no documents found in Mar-a-Lago, just empty ‘legal’ folders marked classified as classified
Donald Trump dropped a $250 million lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James after receiving a warning from a federal judge.
The same judge fined Donald Trump and his attorney nearly $1 million for suing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over allegations that she and others rigged the 2016 presidential election.
“This case should never have been brought,” Judge Donald M Middlebrooks of the Southern District of Florida wrote in his order. “Its unsuitability as a legal claim was evident from the outset.”
Judge Middlebrooks said the sanctions were justified because the former president exhibited a “pattern” of misusing the courts for his political agenda. “Intended for a political purpose, none of the charges in the Amended Complaint stated a known legal claim,” he wrote.
Trump and his attorney Alina Habba are now liable for $937,989 in sanctions.
Meanwhile, the former president reacted angrily to the Supreme Court’s failure to identify the source of the roe x wade leak of decision that sparked outrage last year.
He shockingly called for the arrest of the political reporter, editor, and editor who broke the story in an effort to force them to identify the source of the leak.

Voices: Trump thinks Politico journalists should be arrested. This must be a turning point
This pressure to jail journalists for doing their jobs — their constitutionally protected jobs — echoes a speech Trump gave last November, during which he reflected on the same reporter being sexually assaulted in prison: “The reporter goes to jail. When the reporter hears that he is going to marry a certain prisoner who is extremely strong, tough and mean, he will say, ‘You know, I think I’ll pass the information on to you’”.
This is no mere chit-chat. According New York TimesWhile president, Trump told FBI Director James Comey to “consider putting reporters in jail” during an Oval Office meeting.

Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, is reportedly arguing that she should remain in her current role as she is best able to convince Donald Trump not to run as a third-party nominee in 2024 should he not be nominated by the party.
Report published on Thursday in The Washington Postsays McDaniel is trying to thwart challenges to his leadership in the RNC, stoking fears that a third-party Trump run will split the GOP base.
