With Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy retiring after 48 years in office and the state's only representative, Peter Welch, hoping to fill his Senate seat after 16 years in the House, Vermonters are virtually certain to send a woman to Congress for the first time in the state's history -- with ABC News projecting that state Sen. Becca Balint will win her primary race on Tuesday. Vermont, despite its progressive reputation among many given how Sen. Bernie Sanders towers over the local political landscape, is the last state in the nation to send a woman to Washington, partly because it's had fewer opportunities with men like Leahy, Sanders and Welch serving for long stretches in the mere three congressional seats.

Donald Trump and other top GOP leaders issued swift responses to the former president's announcement on Monday that his Mar-a-Lago Club was subject to an FBI raid, which appears to be focused on "many pages of classified documents" that Trump reportedly took with him upon leaving the White House. Many Republicans rallied around Trump's unproven claims that the FBI's raid was political in nature, intended to "weaponize" bureaucratic agencies against Republicans and stunt his chances at throwing his hat back in the political ring. "It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don't want me to run in 2024," Trump wrote in his announcement of the Mar-a-Lago FBI raid on Monday night.

The Biden administration is moving forward with a plan to increase the U.S. monkeypox vaccine supply by as much as five times. In an announcement Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said he issued a determination, made possible by the public health emergency declared last week, that will allow the Food and Drug Administration to authorize changing the method of injection for the vaccines.

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the House Ways and Means Committee can obtain Donald Trump's tax returns in the latest blow to the former president's effort to shield his finances from Democratic lawmakers. In the opinion for the three-judge panel, Circuit Judge David Sentelle, a Ronald Reagan appointee, wrote that the committee's investigation served a valid legislative purpose and that the 2019 request for Trump's records was not a retaliatory move in violation of his First Amendment rights. "The need for the Trump Parties' information to inform potential legislation overrides the burden to the Executive Branch largely because that burden is so tenuous," Sentelle wrote.

More than two-and-a-half months since the shooting, several of the roughly 100 attendees sought basic answers about the law enforcement response, including chain-of-command communication.
