During Wednesday's tense congressional testimony over online safety for children, Sen. Tom Cotton repeatedly asked Singaporean TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew if he's ever been a part of the Chinese Communist Party. An increasingly agitated Chew, who's no stranger to US politicians' prodding, tried repeatedly to shut down the line of questioning by telling the conservative senator that he's Singaporean. "Senator, I'm Singaporean, no," Chew responded. Chew was joined by four other social media companies' CEOs Wednesday for a combative hearing on protecting children online in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Steelworkers in Ukraine are outsmarting Russian troops with realistic-looking decoy weapons. After fooling Russian radar, new decoy weapons are being given directly to Ukrainian troops. The workers at Metinvest, Ukraine's largest steel plant, have produced more than 250 decoy weapons for Ukrainian troops, tricking Russian forces into using up valuable ammunition on nothing more than trash, the Financial Times reported. The fakes cost about 1,000 Euros to create — a fraction of the $1.1 million missiles used by Russian troops to destroy them. Militaries have long used decoy weapons to outmaneuver their opponents, such as inflatable tanks in WWII and parachuting dummies meant to simulate an airborne invasion leading up to D-Day.

Among the four charges Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to Thursday was conspiracy against rights. The civil war-era statute was originally passed to stop members of the KKK from terrorizing the formerly enslaved. In this case, it's the right to vote that prosecutors allege Trump threatened by trying to tamper with the 2020 election results in battleground states. The "civil war era statute was used to prosecute folks in the South trying to disenfranchise Black voters," Rahmani added. If convicted of this charge, Trump could face a fine or prison time of up to 10 years, Rahmani said.
