A New York appellate court on Thursday suspended Rudy Giuliani's law license after finding he made "demonstrably false and misleading" statements about last year's election while serving as former President Donald Trump's attorney. "These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client," the ruling continued. The panel examined several comments made by Giuliani, and the defenses he offered of them to the court. "It is long recognized that 'speech by an attorney is subject to greater regulation than speech by others.'" The panel also reviewed false claims Giuliani made about the number of mail-in ballots requested in Pennsylvania.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Thursday that she would create a select committee to further investigate the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, after Senate Republicans blocked a bipartisan effort to form an independent commission of experts to look into the riot. “January 6th was a day of darkness for our country,” Ms. Pelosi told reporters. On Tuesday, Ms. Pelosi told top House Democrats that she planned to announce her decision on a select committee this week. lawmakers working to whitewash and downplay the riot, she has conceded that no longer seemed possible. Fewer than 10 Republicans — the amount needed to overcome a legislative filibuster — supported such an inquiry when it came to a vote in the Senate this month.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to U.S. President Donald Trump, speaks in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, November 7, 2020. A New York court on Thursday suspended Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in New York state due to making "false and misleading statements" about the election loss of former President Donald Trump, his client. It also comes as Giuliani is under criminal investigation by that same federal prosecutor's office in Manhattan in connection with his work in Ukraine. Giuliani and Trump since last November have made false claims about the legitimacy of the election of President Joe Biden, claiming that Trump was swindled out of a victory only by widespread ballot fraud in key swing states. In fact, the order added, "The public records submitted on this motion unequivocally show that respondent's statement is false.

Former Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday night made his most forceful attempt yet to separate himself from his former boss, Donald J. Trump, on the issue of certifying the 2020 election results. Speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., Mr. Pence defended the constitutionally mandated role he played in certifying the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6, when a violent mob of Trump loyalists — some chanting “Hang Mike Pence” — stormed the Capitol while the president did nothing for hours to stop them. “I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States,” Mr. Pence said, noting that as vice president, he had no constitutional authority to reject or return electoral votes submitted to Congress by the states. “The truth is, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”It was the furthest that Mr. Pence, a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2024, has gone yet in defending his role that day or distancing himself from Mr. Trump, to whom he ingratiated himself during their four years together in office.

Mayoral Race Live Updates: Eric Adams in the Lead After Winning Over Black and Latino Voters Maya Wiley and Kathryn Garcia trailed Adams as Andrew Yang, a former front-runner, conceded. Tuesday’s vote shows Adams won over Black and Latino voters. More than any other candidate, Mr. Adams built his coalition on a foundation of Black and Latino voters, and the strong support of labor unions. And while Kathryn Garcia, the former sanitation commissioner, dominated in much of Manhattan, Mr. Adams won in large swaths of Harlem. The same system was used for all city elections, including for seats in the New York City Council and the offices of the borough presidents, the public advocate and the New York City comptroller.

President Biden is set to deliver remarks on gun violence as homicides rise in some cities, raising concerns about efforts to overhaul policing.

The Biden administration is forcing out the chief of the United States Border Patrol, Rodney S. Scott, who took over the agency during the final year of the Trump administration, a Department of Homeland Security official said on Wednesday. Republicans have increased pressure on both Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris to visit the border, where a record number of migrants have been trying to cross in recent months. Mr. Scott, a 29-year veteran of the Border Patrol, took the helm of the agency in February 2020. The Border Patrol monitors nearly 6,000 miles of the nation’s borders with Mexico and Canada, in between official points of entry. It has been at the center of a highly polarized national debate over immigration policy, particularly as Mr. Trump employed hard-line tactics against undocumented immigrants.

Michigan Republicans Debunk Voter Fraud Claims in Unsparing Report
  + stars: | 2021-06-23 | by ( Reid J. Epstein | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.95   time to read: +1 min
A committee led by Michigan Republicans on Wednesday published an extraordinary debunking of voter fraud claims in the state, delivering a comprehensive rebuke to a litany of accusations about improprieties in the 2020 election and its aftermath. The 55-page report, produced by a Michigan State Senate committee of three Republicans and one Democrat, is a systematic rebuttal to an array of false claims about the election from supporters of former President Donald J. Trump. The authors focus overwhelmingly on Michigan, but they also expose lies perpetuated about the vote-counting process in Georgia. The report is unsparing in its criticism of those who have promoted false theories about the election. It debunks claims from Trump allies including Mike Lindell, the chief executive of MyPillow; Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former president’s lawyer; and Mr. Trump himself.

Biden Administration Forces Out Trump-Era Border Patrol Chief

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is forcing out the chief of the United States Border Patrol, Rodney S. Scott, who took over the agency during the final year of the Trump administration, a Department of Homeland Security official said on Wednesday. The move comes as Vice President Kamala Harris plans to visit the southwestern border on Friday for the first time since President Biden asked her to lead the administration’s efforts to deter migration from Central America. Republicans have ramped up pressure on both Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris to visit the border, where a record number of migrants have been trying to cross in recent months. The homeland security official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said it was possible that Mr. Scott, a 29-year veteran of the agency, could remain in the department, reassigned to a new post. Given that the agency had been so tightly aligned with Mr. Trump, some officials have said it was surprising that Mr. Scott remained in the position for as long as he did.

The rigors of protecting a president, a vice president and their families in an election year amid a pandemic placed a heavy burden on the Secret Service, with nearly 900 employees testing positive for the coronavirus, a watchdog group said this week. It obtained the Secret Service data from the federal government as part of a public records request under the Freedom of Information Act. The government also did not disclose what percentage of the total number of Secret Service employees had contracted the virus. The employees who tested positive included 477 special agents, 249 members of the uniformed division and 131 staff members working in administrative, professional and technical positions, according to the group. The Secret Service is the main federal law enforcement agency charged with protecting U.S. political leaders, including the president, and the families.

Priorities USA, one of the biggest Democratic super PACs, plans to announce on Tuesday that it will pump $20 million into voting rights initiatives ahead of the 2022 election cycle, aiming to combat Republican-led election laws with digital ads and organizing as well as in the courts. The group’s overall goal is to help people navigate a new balloting landscape created by the many new restrictions passed by Republicans in at least 16 states. The campaigns will also provide voting tools like text message reminders to register to vote or request an absentee ballot. “The purpose of this program is to really center the voters who we know are particularly targeted by the Republicans’ suppression efforts,” said Danielle Butterfield, the executive director of Priorities USA. Though Priorities has not sued any state this year in response to new voting restrictions, group officials said that more legal efforts would be coming soon.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Merrick B. Garland backed away on Tuesday from doing a broad review of Justice Department politicization during the Trump administration, noting that the department’s independent inspector general was already investigating related issues, including aggressive leak hunts and attempts to overturn the election. Democrats and some former Justice Department employees have pressed Mr. Garland to uncover any efforts by former President Donald J. Trump to wield the power of federal law enforcement to advance his personal agenda. Their calls for a full investigation grew louder after recent revelations that Mr. Trump pushed department officials to help him undo his election loss and that prosecutors took aggressive steps to root out leakers. Answering questions from reporters at the Justice Department on Tuesday, Mr. Garland said that reviewing the previous administration’s actions was “a complicated question.” He noted that managers typically sought to understand what previous leaders had done. But he stopped short of saying that he would undertake a comprehensive review of Trump era Justice Department officials and their actions, in part to keep career employees from concluding that their work would be judged through changing political views.

American officials also seized Fars’s website in 2018, when it was registered as a .com domain. The news agency switched to an Iranian domain of .ir and was back online soon afterward — a strategy that Press TV said on Tuesday that it would follow. It was unclear how the security operation might affect the nuclear negotiations, which have been underway in Vienna since April. The negotiators were to return to their capitals this week to brief their governments on the latest developments. President Biden has said that rejoining the nuclear agreement is one of his top foreign policy priorities, although his aides have largely downplayed any certainty that a deal will be struck.

After replacing its leadership team and delivering a series of contradictory statements about its outlook, Lordstown Motors is putting its Ohio factory on display in an effort to validate its promise to start manufacturing an electric commercial pickup truck. The company is inviting investors, analysts, customers and suppliers to meet with the management team, tour the factory and take test drives in the truck this week “to experience firsthand how the production team is preparing the plant for the ramp up to be ready for the beginning of early production units.”Lordstown has attracted attention because it was once hailed by President Donald J. Trump for its bid to revive an Ohio plant closed by General Motors. The plant, in Lordstown, near Ohio’s border with Pennsylvania, was closed in 2019 and purchased by Lordstown Motors for $20 million. The start-up is one of a dozen or more electric vehicle companies that skipped the typical route for becoming publicly traded, instead gaining a stock listing and raising hundreds of millions of dollars with relatively little scrutiny by merging with a special purpose acquisition company, DiamondPeak Holdings.

Eight Democrats are running to replace Cyrus Vance Jr. as Manhattan district attorney, jockeying to lead one of the most well-known and influential local prosecutor’s offices in the country at a time when views of the criminal justice system have shifted. The office is home to many high-profile investigations, including the ongoing inquiry into former President Donald J. Trump and his family business. The contenders — five of whom have been prosecutors before and three of whom have not — mostly agree on a basic tenet: The office needs to change. But they are divided over just how far they would push reform efforts. Because the district attorney is a state election rather than a municipal one, voting will not be ranked choice, as it is in the citywide elections, and voters will select only one candidate.

Judge Narrows Suits Over Clearing of Protesters Before Trump Photo Op

WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Monday partly dismissed claims filed by Black Lives Matter, the American Civil Liberties Union and others accusing the Trump administration of abusing its power to violently disperse a protest outside the White House last year. The lawsuits alleged that the government violated protesters’ civil rights and conspired to clear Lafayette Square so President Donald J. Trump could walk to a church near the White House, where he held a Bible outside in a photo op. But in the 51-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich, a Trump appointee, said the claims of a federal conspiracy were “simply too speculative” to allow those parts of the suits to proceed. She also ruled that the federal officials at the time who were named as defendants, such as Attorney General William P. Barr and Gregory T. Monahan, the acting chief of the U.S. Park Police, were entitled to qualified immunity and could not be sued for damages over the episode. Judge Friedrich did, however, allow lawsuits challenging continued restrictions of protester access to Lafayette Square and against local police agencies in Washington and Arlington County, Va., to proceed.

Mr. Stranahan served as the center’s first president and then as a board member. In 1989, Mr. Stranahan’s family had a 35 percent stake in Champion Spark Plug when Cooper Industries bought the company for $800 million in cash. That was the scale of the fortune that Mr. Stranahan lived on. Soon thereafter, that fireman, Jess Graber, installed a distillery in another barn on Mr. Stranahan’s property. In 1990, Mr. Stranahan’s Limousin bull Turbo was declared grand champion at the 1990 National Western Stock Show, a highly regarded trade show.

Live Covid Live Updates: Immigrant Communities Turn to Dubious Covid Treatments Many living in the United States illegally can’t access reliable health care or fear authorities, so they rely on home remedies or the black market. Without access to health care, undocumented immigrants are turning to expensive, unproven cures. Such unproven remedies, often promoted by doctors and companies on social media, have appealed to many people in low-income immigrant communities in places across the country where Covid-19 rates have been high but access to health care is low. And even if they aren’t a health risk by themselves, they can lead people to postpone seeking help from doctors, which can be deadly. “I’m upset about the system that makes it easier for them to get help from nontraditional places than from regular health care.” Sandy Sirias contributed reporting.
