Trump news – latest: Justice Department appeals special master ruling as Jan 6 grand jury examining Trump PAC

Donald Trump pays tribute to ‘extraordinary’ Queen Elizabeth II

The Department of Justice is appealing Judge Aileen Cannon’s ruling regarding appointing a special master to review the classified documents seized during the search of Donald Trump’s Palm Beach residence.

The former president’s legal troubles continue to mount as a Washington DC grand jury empanelled to investigate the January 6 attack on the US Capitol and attempts to overturn the 2020 election has broadened its efforts by asking for information about his political action committee, Save America.

Meanwhile, key Trump ally and far-right agitator Steve Bannon has surrendered himself to New York state prosecutors as he faces a new criminal indictment. The case is believed to relate to fraud charges stemming from a fundraising entity, We Build The Wall. The former president pardoned him when he faced federal charges on the matter, but had no power over state-level prosecutions.

Mr Trump paused from ranting on Truth Social about the “perverts and lowlifes” at the Lincoln Project to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II who passed away on Thursday afternoon.

The former president also hailed the new monarch, King Charles III, in a post proclaiming he would be a “Great and Wonderful King” and “an inspiration to everyone”.

Biden embraces tough tone on ‘MAGA Republicans’

In recent days, President Joe Biden has sharpened his attacks against Donald Trump and the so-called MAGA Republicans for posing a threat to democracy. He’s likened the philosophy undergirding the dominant strain of the modern-day GOP to “semi-fascism.”

And Democrats are taking notice.

The gloves-off, no-holds-barred approach from Biden as of late has emboldened Democrats across the country, rallying the party faithful ahead of the November elections even as his harshest rhetoric makes some vulnerable incumbents visibly uncomfortable.
