Trump's prior indictment in New York on charges alleging falsification of business documents didn't move the political needle much. But there is recent polling that explains what Americans think about the prospect of Trump being charged with crimes, including some specifically about an indictment related to his handling of classified documents. Meanwhile, 63% of Americans, called "taking highly classified documents from the White House and obstructing efforts to retrieve them" a serious crime. Ahead of Trump's indictment in Manhattan, Quinnipiac University asked Americans whether they thought criminal charges, not an indictment, should disqualify Trump from running. A slim majority of all voters, 52%, said that in his New York indictment, Trump has been treated like anyone else accused of those same crimes and hasn't been unfairly targeted.

President Biden faces his own special counsel investigation over mishandled secret documents. Like Trump, Biden has faced his own drip, drip, drip of revelations in the case, and questions about his role. Like Trump, Biden has faced his own drip, drip, drip of revelations in the case, and questions about his role. It's unusual for the Justice Department to prosecute someone for mishandling classified records without evidence of so-called aggravating factors, such as obstruction of justice or willful violation, Insider's Sonam Sheth has reported. And in the unlikely event the special counsel does seek charges, Biden as the current president would be shielded from a criminal prosecution until when he's left office.

Share Share Article via Facebook Share Article via Twitter Share Article via LinkedIn Share Article via EmailUkraine kicks off much-anticipated offensiveAfter months of anticipation, Ukraine has begun its counteroffensive against Russian forces in occupied areas of Ukraine according to NBC News. Moscow alleges that they have repulsed Ukrainian attacks on Russian defensive positions. The Ukrainian government has decided to not publicize offensive military efforts to maintain secrecy during the operation.

Ukraine accused Russian forces of blowing up the dam, while the Kremlin denied the attack and said Kyiv intentionally sabotaged the dam to distract attention from its counteroffensive. The dam breach comes amid months of buildup to Ukraine's counteroffensive, a phase of the war that many see as potentially pivotal in Kyiv's pursuit of victory. A spokesperson for the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Friday, however, dismissed reports that a counteroffensive had begun, according to Reuters. Ukraine's government has repeatedly said there will be no public announcement of the start of the counteroffensive. Andrius Tursa, central and Eastern Europe advisor at Teneo, a political risk consultancy, said the destruction of the Nova Kakhovka dam may alter Ukraine's offensive plans — but was "unlikely to derail" them.

Former President Donald Trump greets supporters at a Team Trump volunteer leadership training event held at the Grimes Community Complex on June 01, 2023 in Grimes, Iowa. Former President Donald Trump has been informed he is a target of the federal criminal probe into his retention of hundreds of classified government records after leaving the White House, NBC News reported Wednesday evening. Such notification typically occurs before prosecutors decide whether to lodge criminal charges against a target. Trump's attorneys were told at a meeting Monday at the Department of Justice with special counsel Jack Smith and other DOJ officials that he is a target of the classified documents investigation, according to two sources briefed on the meeting, NBC reported. A raid on Mar-a-Lago last August by the FBI uncovered hundreds of classified documents and other government records.

LOS ANGELES, June 7 (Reuters) - A Hollywood actor who has appeared on such TV shows as "Arrested Development" and the cartoon hit "Bob's Burgers," was arrested on Wednesday for his role in the U.S. Capitol riot of Jan. 6, 2021, that sought to keep Donald Trump in the White House. Johnston surrendered on Wednesday to the FBI field office in Los Angeles, where he is a resident, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement. Johnston has appeared in dozens of films and television shows, often portraying law enforcement officers, including recurring roles as a cop on the comedies "The Sarah Silverman Program" and "Arrested Development."

Flooding from the Kakhovka dam destruction is harming Russia's defensive positions, experts said. Kyiv says Russia of blew up the dam to harm Ukraine — but it may have had unintended consequences. "The flood also destroyed Russian minefields along the coast, with footage showing mines exploding in the flood water," the ISW added. The Kakhovka dam, which is upstream from Kherson, was damaged on Tuesday, releasing a torrent of water from its reservoir. Western countries have condemned Russia in broad terms since its destruction but haven't explicitly said it deliberately destroyed the dam.

In his new Twitter show, Tucker Carlson called Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy "rat-like." Tucker Carlson kicked off his new Twitter show with an antisemitic trope. During the debut of his show, the recently ousted Fox News host called Ukraine's Jewish president "rat-like" — repeating an age-old slur used against Jews. "Ukraine, as you may have heard, is led by a man called Zelenskyy. The slur of depicting Jews as vermin dates back to the early 20th century, The Guardian reported in 2015.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is expected to travel to China in the coming weeks for talks, two U.S. officials told NBC News on Tuesday. The news comes after a previously planned trip was postponed following the discovery of a Chinese spy balloon flying over the United States. U.S. officials did not provide additional details on the timing of Blinken's rescheduled trip, which was first reported by Bloomberg. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping previously met in November in Bali, Indonesia, where they agreed that Blinken would visit China to follow up on the discussions. A Chinese government representative defended its actions, saying Monday that "China always respects the right of navigation."

Instagram's recommendation algorithms have been connecting and promoting accounts that facilitate and sell child sexual abuse content, according to an investigation published Wednesday. Meta's photo-sharing service stands out from other social media platforms and "appears to have a particularly severe problem" with accounts showing self-generated child sexual abuse material, or SG-CSAM, Stanford University researchers wrote in an accompanying study. Stamos, who is now director of the Stanford Internet Observatory, said the problem has persisted after Elon Musk acquired Twitter late last year. "They then cut off our API access," he added, referring to the software that lets researchers access Twitter data to conduct their studies. Earlier this year, NBC News reported multiple Twitter accounts that offer or sell CSAM have remained available for months, even after Musk pledged to address problems with child exploitation on the social messaging service.

Show with Bob and David' actor has been charged with a felony over his alleged actions at the January 6 Capitol siege. The actor was arrested in California, according to Ryan J. Reilly of NBC News. In December, Johnston was removed from the cast of "Bob's Burgers," and a number of his former colleagues — including actor and comedy writer Tim Heidecker — suggested on Twitter that Johnston was the man in the photo. Three current or former associates of Johnston identified him in the photographs circulated by the FBI, according to the federal complaint. Johnston has been charged with felony obstruction of officers during civil disorder, unlawful entry on restricted buildings or grounds, and impeding passage through Capitol grounds.

A street in the city of Kherson flooded after the Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam was damaged, on June 6, 2023. Russia again strongly denied attacking the Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam that led to widespread destruction in southern Ukraine, as it came under scrutiny following the major incident. Ukraine and Russia traded accusations on Tuesday as a massive volume of water breached the dam in the partially Russian-occupied region of Kherson, causing widespread flooding downstream. Both sides denied involvement in attacking the dam, with both accusing each other of blowing it up. For example, they noted that Russian-occupied Crimea relies on water supplies from the reservoir and the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant also relies on supplies for cooling.

Ukraine has begun emergency evacuations of residents in parts of the southern Kherson region after claiming that a major dam, the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant, had been "blown up" by Russian forces Tuesday. The South command of Ukraine's Armed Forces said on its Facebook page that the facility had been "blown up" by Russian forces and that "the scale of the destruction, the speed and volume of water, and the probable areas of flooding are being clarified." Ukrainian officials warned of potentially devastating flooding in the region and called on residents in 11 areas to leave immediately. Russia denied damaging the dam, saying instead that Ukraine had undermined the structure. Leontiev said there was still no need to evacuate the inhabitants of Nova Kakhovka, adding that "we are preparing for the worst consequences, but we hope that they will not happen."

CNN —The Republican presidential field is growing almost by the day, but no candidate has yet offered an effective answer to GOP primary voters on the race’s most compelling question – why they should ditch Donald Trump. Nikki Haley has been on the trail for weeks, appearing in a CNN town hall on Sunday in Iowa. No Republican voters will weigh in for at least six months in early state contests. There’s even less evidence that GOP voters believe that Trump’s legal problems disqualify him from serving as their nominee. In an NBC News poll in April, 68% of Republican voters believed that investigations into Trump were politically motivated attempts to stop him.

Far-right House members are not pleased with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's debt ceiling compromise. Eleven conservative GOP members nuked McCarthy's bans on banning gas stoves, sending his plans up in flames. The Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act would have barred the Consumer Product Safety Commission from using federal funds to regulate gas stoves or issue safety guidance that would ban them or make them more expensive. To peel back the layers here: The folks who have championed gas stoves versus induction stoves in the culture wars voted against H.Res. 463 — a procedural vote to establish rules on a floor vote for two gas stove-related bills — to punish McCarthy.

New York CNN —Chuck Todd, the longtime host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” is stepping down from his role, he shared with the audience on Sunday. “When I took over ‘Meet the Press,’ it was a Sunday show that had a lot of people questioning whether it still could have a place in the modern media space,” Todd said on the show. But it’s important media leaders do not “overstay their welcome,” Todd said on the show. “I’ve let work consume me for nearly 30 years,” Todd said. “But it doesn’t mean sticking your head in the sand either; if you ignore reality, you’ll miss the biggest story,” Todd said.
