He seemed skeptical of arguments from lawyers for Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Sidney Powell. Dominion sued Giuliani, Powell, and MyPillow in three separate lawsuits filed in January and February, each one alleging $1.3 billion in damages. Attorneys for Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell have submitted a wide variety of legal defenses in recent months asking Nichols to throw out the lawsuits. Joe Sibley, representing Giuliani, said Dominion couldn't show evidence it had lost government contracts because of the Trump lawyer's allegations. Aside from their federal lawsuits with Dominion, each of the conspiracy theorists faces other headaches.

If Trump were indicted and fled, he would go where there's no extradition treaty, legal experts say. The US would be in "uncharted territories" if it sought extradition of Trump, experts say. But the US and Russia have no extradition treaty or formal process through which a wanted person is arrested. Russian officials could agree to entertain Trump's application, which would trigger an international standoff between two countries with an already fraught relationship. If US authorities arrested Trump and won a criminal conviction against him, the former president's political career wouldn't necessarily stop there.

Republicans are itching to conduct investigations of Hunter Biden if they win the majority in 2022. GOP inquiries would force the White House to play whack-a-mole with Hunter Biden accusations. Republicans are gearing up for a hot pursuit of Hunter Biden should they win a majority in Congress in the 2022 midterms. Republicans say they want to know more about Hunter Biden's ties to China and the Ukraine gas company Burisma. Johnson has this year sent at least four letters to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies demanding answers on different Hunter Biden allegations, including on possible ties to "foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government"; unethical links to a Biden administration DOJ appointee; and an incident allegedly involving Hunter Biden and a firearm.

Julian Assange's partner Stella Moris reacts after a court denied bail to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, outside the Westminster Magistrates Court in London, Britain January 6, 2021. REUTERS/Henry NichollsLONDON, June 25 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden must let Julian Assange go free if he wants the United States to become a beacon for a free press once again and put the legacy of Donald Trump behind it, the fiancée of the WikiLeaks founder told Reuters. "If Biden really wants to break with the Trump legacy, then he has to drop the case," Moris told Reuters in an interview. The U.S. Justice Department said in February it planned to continue to seek the extradition for Assange to face hacking conspiracy charges. "A superpower that has a free press is very different in nature from one that does not."

There was a time when John McAfee was mentioned alongside the names of the biggest tech pioneers of the 1980s and ʼ90s, with a fortune to match. His eponymous company, McAfee Corp., would become a household name thanks to its Windows-focused antivirus software. "Although John McAfee founded the company, he has not been associated with our company in any capacity for over 25 years," a company spokesperson said in an email. Suddenly wealthy after selling his company, McAfee spent the next two decades relatively quiet. In the documentary "Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee," a former business partner accused McAfee of drugging and raping her in Belize.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge in Florida halted the Biden administration’s new debt relief program for minority farmers on Wednesday. Howard ordered the Agriculture Department not to issue payments under the program for "socially disadvantaged" farmers until she can rule on the merits of the case. She wrote that the program, which is embedded in President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan law, is "significantly likely" to violate the constitutional rights of the plaintiff, a white farmer named Scott Wynn. Several white farmers have filed suit in cases across the country, at least one of which is backed by America First Legal, a group founded by former Trump White House aides. Howard implored the plaintiffs' lawyers and the Justice Department to move swiftly so that a more permanent ruling can be made quickly.

Spanish authorities opened an investigation into the death of software pioneer John McAfee after he was found dead in his jail cell from an apparent suicide. Mr. McAfee, the 75-year-old founder of antivirus software company McAfee Corp., had been detained in Spain since October in connection with criminal charges filed by the Justice Department’s tax division. “Everything points that it could be a death by suicide,” a spokeswoman for the Justice Department of the Catalan regional government told The Wall Street Journal Thursday. The spokeswoman said that a local judicial delegation is investigating the cause and circumstances of Mr. McAfee’s death and took his body away from the jail to carry out an autopsy. Mr. McAfee’s body was found in his cell at around 7 p.m. local time on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said she will establish a select committee to investigate Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, after Senate Republicans blocked an earlier effort to establish a bipartisan independent commission. The committee will investigate and report on the facts and the causes of the attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump, and will make recommendations for the prevention of any future attacks, Mrs. Pelosi said. The speaker had signaled her intention to form a select committee earlier this week during a meeting with the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, according to people familiar with the matter. But the formal announcement didn’t come until Thursday morning. 6 was one of the darkest days in our nation’s history,” Mrs. Pelosi said at a press conference Thursday, calling the violent attack a “gleeful desecration of the Capitol.” She said it is “imperative that we establish the truth of that day, and ensure that the attack of that kind cannot happen, and that we root out the causes of it all.”Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday that the Justice Department has arrested more than 500 people in connection with the Capitol riot, including at least 100 people on charges of assault of a police officer.

Florida congressman Matt Gaetz tweeted that the FBI should be defunded, then deleted it after one minute. A Gaetz spokesperson told Vice that the congressman had made and deleted a "jocular tweet." A Gaetz spokesman told Vice that Gaetz "felt it appropriate to remove a jocular tweet taken from a speech some time ago." While this ongoing FBI investigation around Gaetz continues, he has launched several salvos at the Bureau. On Newsmax, Gaetz alleged that the FBI had a role in "organizing and participating" in the January 6 Capitol riot.

A Visa credit card is seen on a computer keyboard in this picture illustration taken September 6, 2017. LONDON, June 24 (Reuters Breakingviews) - It doesn’t take Visa (V.N) Chief Executive Al Kelly long to bounce back. That’s a threat to Visa, since people could in theory pay for goods and services via account transfers rather than cards. The U.S. Justice Department concluded Visa wanted to squelch a nascent challenge to its payments monopoly. Kelly may hope that European authorities will take a different view, since so-called open banking laws allow competitors to emulate Tink.

WASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday will vote on whether to advance the nomination of gun control advocate David Chipman, President Joe Biden's choice to lead the Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The ATF will play a vital role in Biden's pledge to crack down on a tide of rising violent crime and shootings. A tie will require Senate Democrats to jump through some procedural hurdles to advance his nomination, but is not an insurmountable roadblock. The job is so politically fraught that the Senate has only confirmed one ATF director nominee in the last 15 years. The administration is looking to regulate self-assembled "ghost guns" and stabilizing braces that can be attached to pistols.

John McAfee, co-founder of McAfee Crypto Team and CEO of Luxcore and founder of McAfee Antivirus, speaks during an interview in Havana, Cuba, July 4, 2019. REUTERS/Alexandre Meneghini/File PhotoBARCELONA, June 24 (Reuters) - Anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee's lawyer said on Thursday he had seen no sign before the entrepreneur's death in a Spanish prison that he would take his own life. Lawyer Javier Villalba said McAfee, 75, who launched the world's first commercial anti-virus in 1987, appeared to have hanged himself in despair after nine months in the prison. McAfee was sharing his cell with another inmate but was alone when he died, a jail source said. By April, McAfee was complaining he had only limited human contact and "no entertainments - no escape from loneliness, from emptiness, from myself".

China is actually fully committed to digital currencies and blockchain technology, but only its brand that it can control, Andreessen Horowitz general partner Katie Haun told CNBC on Thursday. Make no mistake about that," Haun said on "Squawk Box," despite its latest crackdown on bitcoin mining and crypto services. It did not, however, put an end to the influence of Chinese bitcoin traders. Haun's appearance on CNBC came shortly after Andreessen Horowitz announced it was launching a $2.2 billion cryptocurrency-focused fund. Andreessen Horowitz was also the largest outside investor in Coinbase at the time of the crypto exchange's direct listing in April.

Khan herself worked in Chopra's office for part of 2018 as a legal fellow.

The Republican-led Michigan Senate Oversight Committee rebutted voter fraud claims made by Donald Trump, debunking claims of malfeasance in the state's election last fall and affirming that Joe Biden was victorious, in a highly-anticipated report released Wednesday. "At this point, I feel confident to assert the results of the Michigan election are accurately represented by the certified and audited results." The report examined, point-by-point, other theories of election fraud promoted by Trump and his supporters. Last month, Trump targeted Michigan Senate Republicans for not doing enough to substantiate his baseless fraud claims. "Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start?"

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday limited the ability of union organizers to enter the private property of growers in order to reach farmworkers in California. In a 6-3 decision, the court said unions violate the Constitution when they enter a grower's private property without paying. It was adopted in 1975, when many agricultural workers lived on the property of agricultural producers during harvests. "The regulation appropriates a right to physically invade the growers' property," wrote Chief Justice John Roberts for the majority. "The access regulation amounts to simple appropriation of private property."

WASHINGTON — The nation's public schools have no general power to punish students for what they say off campus, the Supreme Court said Wednesday. The decision did not protect all off-campus expression, but the court suggested the exceptions, to be worked out in future cases, would be limited. She used a vulgar four-letter verb to write, "f--- school f--- softball f--- cheer f--- everything." In 1969, the court said students and teachers do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." No matter where a student's expression originates, schools should be able to discipline students when a message is directed at the school and causes disruption, the district said.

Biden last week elevated a fierce critic of Big Tech, antitrust legal scholar Lina Khan, to head the powerful Federal Trade Commission. Many Republican lawmakers denounce the market dominance of Big Tech but don’t support a wholesale revamp of the antitrust laws. Biden said as a presidential candidate that dismantling the big tech companies should be considered. The legislative proposals also would prohibit the tech giants from favoring their own products and services over competitors on their platforms. As counsel to the Judiciary antitrust subcommittee, she played a key role in the 2019-20 investigation of the tech giants’ market power.
