Ex-Trump lawyer moves to unseal names of unindicted co-conspirators: report

A former Trump lawyer who along with the former president is among 19 alleged co-defendants indicted in Georgia earlier this month over efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 presidential election asked a judge on Wednesday to unseal the identities of the unindicted co-conspirators in the case, according to court documents obtained by Lawfare’s Anna Bower.

Bower reports that attorney Kenneth Chesebro in a separate filing asked Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee to sever his case from the rest of his defendants.

In his request to unseal the identities of the unindicted co-conspirators referred to in the indictment, Chesebro’s attorneys argued that the co-defendants’ identities are needed to challenge the conspiracy allegations.

Chesebro’s lawyers in court filings contend that the “identity of the unindicted-but-known co-conspirators is needed for Mr. Chesebro to be able to adequately challenge the State as it attempts to meet its requirement to make a prima facie showing of the existence of the conspiracy.”



Georgia judge orders Trump-implicating special grand jury report publicly released

Judge Robert McBurney ruled that the report that was produced by a special grand jury that led to the eventual indictment of former President Donald Trump must be released to the public. He had previously blocked the release.

In the ruling, McBurney said that it would be released on Sept. 9.

"After considering the well-reasoned positions of both the District Attorney's Office and the media intervenors, the undersigned, in an Order dated 13 Feb. 2023, concluded that much of the final report should not be disclosed until such date as the District Attorney completed her investigation," the ruling explained.



CPAC founder Schlapp slapped with new allegations involving two younger men: report

One day after a top Conservative Political Action Coalition (CPAC) official resigned and encouraged further investigations into Chair Matt Schlapp, who was accused of sexually assaulting a Herschel Walker Senate campaign staffer, new allegations surfaced.

Vice Chair Charlie Gerow turned in his resignation Friday, and it was reported that the attorney and communications executive had issued a call for probes over CPAC’s leader. His resignation reportedly followed the departure of fellow board member Timothy Ryan.

Now, the Washington Post has a scoop alleging there are at least two more purported incidents that could be investigated.

"In addition to that lawsuit, some board members and staffers have been told about other incidents involving Schlapp, 55, and two younger men, multiple people with direct knowledge of the situation said," The Washington Post reported Saturday. "In one incident, a staffer said Schlapp attempted to kiss him while drinking late after a work function in 2017. The staffer also provided documentation from that night to The Washington Post showing physical contact that the staffer said was unsolicited."



Fulton County judge orders Trump's trial to be televised

Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee on Tuesday issued an order allowing media organizations to televise the trial of former President Donald Trump and 18 others for alleged election interference.

McAfee's order allows recording video images and sound "during all or portions of the proceedings."

The judge permitted several types of cameras, including television cameras, laptops, and cell phones.



Governor Newsom Proclaims State of Emergency As Hurricane Hilary Approaches California

SACRAMENTO – Today, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency for much of Southern California to support Hurricane Hilary response and recovery efforts as the state continues mobilizing and coordinating resources ahead of the storm’s forecasted impacts starting today. The text of today’s emergency proclamation can be found here.

Hurricane Hilary is currently a Category 2 storm that the National Hurricane Center says is expected to bring “catastrophic and life-threatening flooding” to Baja California and the Southwestern U.S., including Southern California. Much of the impacts of the storm, including heavy rainfall and high winds, are expected to begin today and last through Monday.

At the Governor’s direction, there are currently more than 7,500 boots on the ground deployed to help local communities protect Californians from the impacts of Hurricane Hilary.


Joe Manchin 'thinking seriously' about leaving the Democratic Party: report

United States Senator Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) told radio host Hoppy Kercheval on Thursday that he is considering leaving the Democratic Party, lamenting the "extremes" that he believes have developed inside each political camp. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-Arizona) shared similar concerns when she switched to Independent in December 2022.

"I want to be able to speak honestly about, basically, the extremes of the Democrat and Republican Party that is harming our nation," Manchin said, per NBC News' Julie Tsirkin.

"I'm thinking seriously what's best for me, I have to have peace of mind basically," Manchin added. "I've been thinking about that for quite some time."

Per Axios' Andrew Solender, Manchin complained that "the brand has become so bad. The D brand and R brand ... You've heard me say a million times, I am not a Washington Democrat."



'I will talk about it': Trump defiantly vows to discuss Jan. 6 case if slapped with a gag order

Former President Donald Trump suggested on Tuesday that he would violate any gag order preventing him from talking about special counsel Jack Smith's election interference case against him.

While speaking to a crowd of supporters in Windham, New Hampshire, Trump complained about Smith's request for a protective order. The order could prevent Trump from publicly targeting figures involved in the case.

"Crooked Joe now wants the thug prosecutor, this deranged guy, to file a court order taking away my First Amendment rights so that I can't speak," Trump told the group. "The case is a ridiculous case. It's a First Amendment case. But we don't want Trump to speak. So they want me, they take away your rights on First Amendment."



I want to know what happens at 5PM today.

Is there any chance we can get TFG to STFU?

Mar-a-Lago surveillance worker sent target letter by Jack Smith: CNN

A surveillance worker at Mar-a-Lago was sent a target letter by Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team investigating classified documents kept at Donald Trump’s Florida estate, CNN reported Sunday.

Yuscil Taveras, who oversees the property's surveillance cameras, was sent the letter after Trump was indicted in June. The worker has not yet been charged with any crime.

CNN reported that Taveras has met with investigators. The network said it’s unclear if he is cooperating with the investigation.



Any chance......

We would have indictments today?
