Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs has been ordered to appear in court Thursday in her efforts to halt pending executions. Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Frank Moskowitz said late Friday that Hobbs and Ryan Thornell, the state's prison director, must show up to explain why the court shouldn't issue an order against them on the grounds they are violating the constitutional rights of victims entitled to prompt justice. The afternoon court appearance is scheduled the same day convicted murderer Aaron Gunches had been set to die.
Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida took a measured dig at Donald Trump by publicly mocking the circumstances that led New York investigators to the former president. “I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair,” DeSantis said. But as soon as Trump was indicted this week, DeSantis promptly vowed to block his state from assisting a potential extradition. In a show of support for his fellow Republican, DeSantis called the cas

NEW YORK — One year ago this week, the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into Donald Trump appeared to be dead in the water. The two leaders of the investigation had recently resigned after the new district attorney, Alvin Bragg, decided not to charge Trump at that point. Amid a fierce backlash to his decision — and a brutal start to his tenure — Bragg insisted that the investigation was not over. But a disbelieving media questioned why, if the effort was still moving forward, there we

When Donald Trump walks into Justice Juan Merchan's courtroom on Tuesday to face criminal charges, it will be a first for a former U.S. president but familiar territory for the veteran judge who serves on Manhattan's criminal court. Merchan last year oversaw a criminal trial of the Trump Organization that ended with the real estate company convicted by a jury of tax fraud and hit with fines, while one of its longtime executives, Allen Weisselberg, pleaded guilty and was sent to jail. Trump is expected to be arraigned before Merchan on Tuesday following a grand jury investigation into hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Fights over increasing the nation’s borrowing authority have been contentious in Congress, yet follow a familiar pattern: Time and again, lawmakers found a way to step back from the brink before markets began to panic and the nation risked a dangerous default on its debt. Led by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, they have ruled out passing a “clean” debt ceiling increase even as the White House insists such legislation be passed without conditions. The political conditions are comparable to 2011, when a new Republican majority swept into power after a resounding election win and was determined to confront a Democratic White House and extract major spending cuts in return for a debt limit increase.

A New York grand jury voted to indict Donald Trump after they investigated hush money payments. Here's how a grand jury works and what happens next.
NEW YORK — A Manhattan grand jury has indicted former President Donald Trump for his role in paying hush money to an adult film star. That is only the first step in what is likely to be a long legal battle. An indictment, whether it is handed up in federal or state court, is a formal accusation — not a conviction — and is among the first moves a prosecutor can make to bring a case to trial. When a person is indicted in a criminal court in the United States, it means that a grand jury composed of
In some ways, it was the turn of events that Democratic voters had dreamed of and some of the party’s lawmakers had long demanded: After years of telling lies, shattering norms, inciting a riot at the Capitol and being impeached twice, Donald Trump on Thursday became the first former president to face criminal charges. “We’ve been waiting for the dam to break for six years,” declared Carter Hudgins, 73, a retired professor from Charleston, South Carolina. “It should have happened a long time ago

“American workers are desperate for a break.”
“Workers will have more leisure but at the cost of less efficiency and a lower standard of living.”
“We have more important things to do now than spend our lives making a tiny group of very rich people even richer.”
“Some industries and deeply entrenched work cultures mean the four-day workweek may not be realistic for all employees.”
“While workers have spent the last 50 years steadily producing more and more, real wages have not risen at the same rate.”
