FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump boards Air Force One at Valley International Airport after visiting the U.S.-Mexico border wall, in Harlingen, Texas, U.S., January 12, 2021. At one point in the speech, Trump told the crowd they should “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”Trump returned to the White House after the remarks and reportedly watched the attack on television. Trump would have a strong argument that he engaged in free speech protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, legal experts said. Trump can argue that his rhetoric was sufficiently ambiguous, and that when he said “fight” he did not mean attack the Capitol, they said. A top prosecutor in the District of Columbia, Ken Kohl, on Jan. 8 told reporters that he did not expect to see a criminal case against Trump for inciting violence.

“I just had to like hand the phone over to Bri when I got it.”“I had hoped that this wouldn't happen in North Carolina, but I thought there was a chance it may. Mayfield said she and May first heard of The Warehouse on Ivy through the online wedding resource Wedding Wire. According to North Carolina incorporation filings, The Warehouse on Ivy is owned by STC Properties of Forsyth County and lists Thomas Collins and Scott Sechler as the company’s managers. Rick Su, a law professor at the University of North Carolina, was even less optimistic when it comes to the state. “North Carolina has no state law on public accommodations not related to disabilities and no anti-discrimination laws protecting LGBT identity,” Su told NBC News.

Slideshow ( 3 images )The lawsuit, announced by the Republican attorney general of Texas Ken Paxton, was filed directly with the Supreme Court, as is permitted for certain litigation between states. The Supreme Court has a 6-3 conservative majority including three justices appointed by Trump. Texas is asking the Supreme Court to block the Electoral College votes in the four states - a total of 62 votes - from being counted. Texas also is asking the Supreme Court to delay the Dec. 14 deadline for Electoral College votes to be cast. Trump’s campaign and his allies have pursued unsuccessful lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and other states, making unfounded claims of widespread election fraud.

FILE PHOTO: A general view of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, U.S. November 10, 2020. The case was filed directly with the Supreme Court rather than with a lower court, as is permitted for certain litigation between states. The lawsuit, announced by the Republican attorney general of Texas Ken Paxton, targeted election battleground states that Trump lost to Biden after winning them in 2016. Texas also asked the Supreme Court to delay the Dec. 14 date for Electoral College votes to be cast. The president said before the election he expected the Supreme Court to decide the winner.

Experts in election law were also quick to dismiss the likelihood of the nine Supreme Court justices taking the case. The suit is also asking the Supreme Court to extend that Dec. 14 deadline "to allow these investigations to be completed." In most cases, the Supreme Court only hears cases that have been appealed from lower courts. "Well, the problem is, it's hard to get into the Supreme Court," Trump told Fox News last month in his first full interview since his Nov. 3 defeat. "I've got the best Supreme Court advocates, lawyers, that want to argue the case, if it gets there.

Explainer: Can Trump override the popular vote?

Typically, a state certifies a Republican or Democratic slate of electors based on which candidate won the popular vote. Delaying or blocking the state certification process could clear the way for legislators to appoint electors pledged to Trump, even in states where Biden won the popular vote. The campaign’s proposed fix: let the state’s Republican-controlled legislature appoint electors and declare Trump the victor of the state, even though Biden won the popular vote. OBSCURE FEDERAL LAWAn obscure federal law provides another opening for lawmakers to appoint Trump electors in states won by Biden. That law allows state legislators to appoint electors if voters “failed to make a choice” on Election Day.

LONDON (Reuters) - One morning, after years of financial prudence and solid creditworthiness, you wake up and it’s all gone. This could have dire consequences for people who have historically struggled to access credit, especially those on low incomes. Policymakers have put a six-month cap on the credit amnesty, just as a second lockdown in England poses many of the same problems for businesses and households. A drop like this would likely trigger a credit file “black mark”, making accessing credit almost impossible, Basini said. And while ending the amnesty is aimed at shoring up the economy, it could have an opposite, unintended, effect.

Their call amounted to an acknowledgment that Mr. Biden will be declared the victor in the election. “Yes, I think so,” Mr. Graham, a close Trump ally, also said about Mr. Biden receiving the briefings. “President-elect Biden should be receiving intelligence briefings right now,” said Ms. Collins, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It had been unclear how actively Mr. Biden, the incoming head of the party, would involve himself in negotiations before his inauguration. The case was based in part on an affidavit from a poll worker who said voters were being pressured to vote for Mr. Biden.
