Liz Cheney states her desire for the Republican party to no longer hold the majority in the House of Representatives by 2024.
Liz Cheney, a former member of the Republican party, who has been a strong opponent of Donald Trump, states that although she still supports the traditional values of her party, the influence of the former president poses a threat to democracy.
She wants the party to no longer have a majority in the House of Representatives in order to prevent Speaker Mike Johnson from potentially giving the election to Mr. Trump if it is decided by the lower chamber of Congress.
During an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Ms Cheney issued a dire warning about the US potentially heading towards dictatorship due to a state of unawareness.
Recently, judges in federal court have issued two setbacks for Mr. Trump’s efforts to avoid facing charges and lawsuits related to his purported actions to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
In a highly anticipated decision on Friday, a federal appeals court concluded that Mr. Trump could face civil consequences for instigating the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021 following his defeat in the 2020 election.
Judge Tanya Chutkan ruled that the defendant does not have immunity as president in his case involving federal election interference. This decision was made in response to charges filed by the US Department of Justice’s special counsel, Jack Smith.
Kenneth Chesebro has started collaborating in the investigation of fraudulent electors in Nevada.
The criminal inquiry at the state level regarding the “fake electors” scheme during the 2020 election in Nevada has gained the support of a crucial witness, Kenneth Chesebro, the lawyer behind the plan to nullify Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
Both CNN and The Washington Post have stated that Mr. Chesebro has agreed to a meeting with investigators in the state in order to avoid being prosecuted.
He admitted to being responsible for the conspiracy in Georgia and as part of the agreement, he has promised to assist the prosecution in the extensive racketeering trial involving former president Donald Trump and 14 others who are also being charged.
Mr. Chesebro has also committed to collaborating on any pertinent cases in the future, both within and outside of the state.
The judge has ruled that Trump is not protected by presidential immunity.
A recent decision from a federal appeals court finally determined that Mr. Trump can be held responsible for the riots at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, following his defeat in the 2020 election.
Attorneys representing Mr. Trump had also attempted to invoke his presidential “immunity” as a defense against the legal proceedings.
Judge Chutkan stated in her Friday ruling that the defendant’s term as Commander in Chief did not grant him the privilege to avoid criminal responsibility like other citizens.
The choice sets the stage for a legal battle regarding the extent of presidential authority, which may eventually be brought before the US Supreme Court.

Johnson, the speaker, authored the introduction for a book that is riddled with conspiracies and homophobia.

The Revivalist Manifesto contains conspiracies typically supported by extreme right-wing groups. These include the widely debunked “Pizzagate” hoax about a powerful pedophile network in Washington DC, as well as the baseless theory that the Democratic National Committee’s emails were leaked rather than hacked in 2016.
The court has ruled that Trump can face a lawsuit for instigating the riots at the Capitol.
Today, the decision was made in the US District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
The lawyers of Mr. Trump tried to invoke “presidential immunity” to protect him from legal consequences for his role in inciting the riot at the Capitol.
The appeals court was tasked with deciding whether Mr. Trump is entitled to official-act immunity for his actions on January 6, as stated in the complaints.
At this point in the legal process, they wrote in a decision on Friday that we decline to answer positively.
Interpretation: Trump’s aggressive language outlines his approach to his campaign.

What are the future plans for Gavin Newsom’s “shadow campaign”?
The Thursday debate on Fox News featured a clash between Florida governor Ron DeSantis and California governor Gavin Newsom, marketed as the “Great Red vs Blue State debate.” It was presented as a face-off between conservatism and liberalism.
However, the possibility of the 2024 and potentially the 2028 presidential election was a prevalent topic throughout the entire conversation.

Lawyers are claiming that if Trump is the president, he cannot be put on trial in Georgia.
According to his lawyers, Donald Trump should not be facing trial in Georgia while running for president in 2024. Additionally, if he is re-elected, he should not face trial until after his term ends. This pertains to a criminal case related to his attempts to dispute the outcome of the previous election that he did not win.
The ex-president, who is currently the top contender for the Republican nomination in the upcoming election, is facing criminal charges for allegedly participating in a plot to illegally manipulate the state’s election outcome.
The district attorneys in Fulton County have suggested a trial date of August 2024, which has been described by his lawyers as “interfering with the election.”

Donald Trump is not listed as a defendant in the lawsuit.
The reported situation took place in 2021, when Ms Bianco, who was 21 at the time, alleges that a manager harassed her and attempted to kiss her against her will. When she declined, she reportedly received an unjust job task as retribution. The matter reached a peak when she felt pressured to engage in sexual activity with the manager in exchange for job security and protection, as stated in the lawsuit.
The manager is not listed as a defendant.
