(Reuters) - Conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices signaled sympathy on Tuesday toward a bid by President Donald Trump’s administration, backed by broadcast companies, to loosen regulations that critics have said promote a diversity of views in local broadcast media and ownership by racial minorities and women. REUTERS/Erin Scott/File PhotoDuring arguments by teleconference in the case, conservative justices asked questions that appeared to indicate they believe the Federal Communications Commission did not overstep its authority in repealing certain media ownership regulations in 2017. But critics of the FCC’s action have said loosening ownership rules as the agency did could jeopardize a wider array of news and information sources at the local level. Circuit Court of Appeals has thwarted the FCC’s efforts to revise the rules since 2003 in a series of decisions. Chief Justice John Roberts and other conservative justices focused during the arguments on the FCC’s obligation to extensively analyze potential impacts on women and minorities.

Cramer and others have been buzzing about a legal assessment from retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig saying the Senate can't hold an impeachment trial once Trump leaves office. Under the Senate rules, the upper chamber must prioritize the Trump trial once the House officially delivers its article of impeachment charging Trump with inciting rioters who stormed the Capitol. But the senator acknowledged that Republicans like him are also worried about backlash from Trump and his supporters as the impeachment trial approaches. Chief Justice John Roberts presided over President Trump's first impeachment trial in early 2021. Cramer said he doesn't think there are 17 GOP Senate votes who would join with all 50 Democrats to convict Trump.

Opinion | The Supreme Court After Trump

Could history repeat itself with any members of the Roberts court? Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh fit that description, as do Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice Roberts. The most interesting theory about Supreme Court “evolutions” is suggested by a book that has nothing to do with any court. But it came to mind last year as I watched Chief Justice Roberts preside over the Senate’s charade of an impeachment trial. I doubt if there’s anyone in Washington more relieved to see Donald Trump leave the scene than Chief Justice Roberts.

The Constitution says the chief justice is to preside at the impeachment trial of a president. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Constitution says the chief justice is to preside at the impeachment trial of a president. If President Donald Trump's trial begins after Jan. 20, it's not clear whether Chief Justice John Roberts would make his way to the Senate chamber as he did last year for Trump's first trial. University of Texas law professor Steven Vladeck said the chief justice is the better choice. "Indeed, if Trump resigned (or his term ended) mid-trial, it would be more than a little odd for the Chief Justice to give way to the Vice President.

Parler is sharing information with the FBI on federal investigations into the Capitol riot. A sworn FBI affidavit shows that Parler gave information that helped FBI agents identify, locate, and arrest a Proud Boys supporter making threats on Parler. But the cooperation could have unusually significant consequences for Parler users who organized violence at the Capitol on January 6. Parler is sharing information with the FBI in connection with the Department of Justice's investigations into the violent riot at the US Capitol. Parler provided the phone number associated with the account, the affidavit says, and the FBI used it, and info from T-Mobile, to identify Florea.

McConnell said a “fair or serious trial” cannot conclude before Biden is sworn in. They have lasted 83 days, 37 days and 21 days, respectively,” he noted in a statement. It was not clear whether the Democratic-led House would deliver the charge against Trump to the Senate on Wednesday night. Ten of Trump’s fellow Republicans joined 222 Democrats in backing impeachment in the House, where Democrats hold a slim majority.

Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives is expected to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time in his presidency. The House is impeaching Trump on one article of inciting an insurrection on the US Capitol on January 6. On Wednesday, the House of Representatives is expected to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time in his presidency. Trump was once before impeached by the House in December 2019 on charges of abusing his office and obstructing Congress before being acquitted in a Senate trial in February 2020. Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Trump in his first impeachment were impeached by the House but all acquitted in the Senate.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday lifted a nationwide injunction that has prevented the Trump administration from enforcing a rule to regulate a pill commonly used in medication abortions, so the rule can now be enforced. His order stopped enforcement of the FDA rule nationwide, but he Supreme Court has now stayed that order, allowing the rule to be enforced. Chief Justice John Roberts said this was not a case about whether the rule imposed an undue burden on a woman's right to seek abortion. Writing for herself and Justice Elena Kagan, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the majority of women seeking abortion care during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy rely on the medication at issue. "The FDA's policy imposes an unnecessary, unjustifiable, irrational, and undue burden on a women seeking abortion during the current pandemic," Sotomayor wrote.

FILE PHOTO: A general view of the U.S. Supreme Court building at sunset in Washington, U.S. November 10, 2020. Chuang’s injunction said the government had taken actions to effectively waive several in-person requirements for dispensing other drugs, including opioids. The dispute centers on the FDA’s requirement that the drug mifepristone, one of two pills used to perform a medication abortion, be dispensed in-person by a certified prescriber. Medication abortions are approved through the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. Groups representing tens of thousands of physicians, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, sued the FDA in May saying that requiring in-person visits to pick up a pill needlessly exposes patients, doctors, and workers to a greater risk of contracting COVID-19.

At the same time, Democratic-led states are cementing abortion rights and making abortions more accessible. Advocates on both sides said the conservative justices have more power to eliminate abortion rights or give states more leeway to regulate it. For decades, states have chipped away at abortion rights, deepening the growing divide in access between red and blue states and producing significant court battles. But now, energized by the political landscape, abortion rights opponents said they might be closer to their goal of undoing Roe v. Wade. The ROE Act codifies abortion rights and allows services after 24 weeks of pregnancy in the event of a lethal fetal diagnosis.

After all, what happened after police cleared the Capitol building and workers began cleaning up the wreckage and blood? I'm also alarmed that ambitious men are now excusing and shifting blame for Trump's insurrection — seemingly only because it was unsuccessful. Only a handful of Senate Republicans voted with Cruz and Hawley — but House Republicans were objectively more opposed to our functioning democracy. Disenfranchisement, particularly of Black voters, has already become routine again since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013. However, having only a slim majority will not diminish our commitment to protecting American democracy and voting rights.

Biden suggested the Senate divide its time between carrying out his agenda and holding an impeachment trial for Trump. The move could temper fears among some Democrats that a second Trump impeachment trial could distract from Biden's early agenda on the economy and the pandemic. President-elect Joe Biden suggested on Monday that the Senate could divide its time between an impeachment trial of outgoing President Donald Trump and passing his early legislative agenda, which includes a multitrillion dollar stimulus package. The move could temper fears among some Democrats that an impeachment trial could distract from Biden's early agenda. Sen. Chuck Schumer, the incoming majority leader, said Democrats won't allow a Trump impeachment trial to detract from Biden's legislative ambitions.

At 41, Hawley is the youngest sitting senator and is thought of as a possible 2024 Republican presidential candidate. He's been getting everyone fired up, and I think the reason Sen. Hawley did what he did was pressure from his constituents." Yet Hawley's counterpart, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., was not among the handful of Republicans to make any objections. "In Sen. Hawley's case, no such evidence existed to suggest the electors were not legitimate. "Sen. Hawley’s job was to represent the truth," he added.

But State Representative Beau LaFave, a Republican from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, said it’s a stretch to connect those dots. “There were a lot of angry people at both things, but nobody did any damage or hurt anyone in Michigan,” he said. The rally, which featured Trump flags and hats and a handful of men armed with weapons, remained peaceful — and pointed. Michigan is an open carry state, so it is not unusual to see armed individuals walking the halls of the state Capitol. The Capitol Commission, the body that sets rules and approves maintenance projects for the building, debated banning guns in the Capitol after that April protest, but no action has been taken.

Dominion Voting Systems on Friday brought a $1.3 billion defamation suit against the conservative lawyer Sidney Powell, alleging that her false and outlandish claims about fraud in the 2020 election "caused unprecedented harm." Dominion, the supplier of voting machines to Georgia and other states and counties, brought the suit in the U.S. District Court in Washington. The suit lists "Defending the Republic, Inc.," a company Powell has used for fundraising purposes, as a defendant alongside Powell. Clare, speaking to reporters on a call after the suit was filed, suggested that Trump himself could be sued. "Sidney Powell and others created and disseminated these lies, assisted and amplified by a range of media platforms," he said.

She also owned a pool service and supply business with her husband, according to her now-deleted Facebook page. Though some of her family members expressed confusion about why Babbitt would break into the Capitol, her social media postings offered some insight into possible motivations. Using the handle CommonAshSense, Babbitt’s Twitter account was almost singularly focused on radical conservative topics and conspiracy theories. In 2020, Babbitt began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags. QAnon conspiracy theorists subscribe to a false belief that high-profile Democrats and Hollywood celebrities are ritually sacrificing children and that Trump is fighting to stop it.

On January 5, Babbitt responded to a tweet that read, "A lot of flights into DC are being canceled with no bad weather. Less than 24 hours before the violent rally, Babbitt retweeted a tweet from Wood which read, "MUST BE DONE LIST before Congress meets today: 1.

On Friday, the pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood tweeted that Vice President Mike Pence should be arrested for treason and executed by firing squad. Allies of President Donald Trump are rounding on the pro-Trump lawyer L. Lin Wood after he tweeted about executing Vice President Mike Pence and arresting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Neither Pence, Roberts, McConnell, nor Trump have commented on Wood's tweets, but two prominent allies of the president have attacked Wood for his remarks. When challenged on his comments against Wood, Sandmann tweeted on Saturday: "True loyalty involves criticism when necessary." Since Election Day, Pence has made few public appearances; he has often been absent during Trump's most damaging moments.

The nation's state and federal courts responded quickly to the coronavirus pandemic, adapting courthouses to conduct trials and finding the public ready to serve as jurors, Chief Justice John Roberts said Thursday in his annual year-end message on the judiciary. To accommodate jury trials, trial courts reconfigured spaces, repurposing large courtrooms to maintain social distancing and installing Plexiglas to keep participants physically separated. Judges in Michigan and Florida held drive-through naturalization ceremonies, and courts in Iowa and Minnesota moved theirs outdoors, he said. Robert noted some of the history of the high court's responses to outbreaks, saying that America's first chief justice, John Jay, had to adjourn the young Supreme Court from sitting in Philadelphia in 1793 due to the yellow fever epidemic that killed 5,000 of the city's 50,000 residents. Supreme Court sessions were again canceled in 1918 during the Spanish flu outbreak, the last time the court's work was disrupted until the Covid-19 pandemic.
