Trump rages at judge hours before hush money case begins
Quick Glance: Trump Faces Landmark Trial Over Hush Money Case
  • Donald Trump will go down in history as the first former president to stand trial in Manhattan on criminal charges. The historic case revolves around a potential sex scandal cover-up just days before the 2016 elections.

  • The prosecution alleges that Trump falsified business records to hide hush money payments aimed at influencing the election outcome. Trump maintains his innocence and refutes any involvement with Stormy Daniels.

  • The trial will feature key witnesses from Trump's inner circle testifying against him, including Michael Cohen and David Pecker. It will delve into the Oval Office, where Trump allegedly approved the cover-up.

  • Prosecutors must prove that Trump falsified business records with intent to commit or conceal another crime. Trump's defense is likely to focus on the legality of the hush money payments and attempt to distance him from the accounting handled by his employees.

Quick Glance: Focus on Support for Israel and Ukraine by Mike Johnson
  • House Speaker Mike Johnson is heavily advocating for support for Israel and Ukraine while trying to push a national security package through the House.

  • Johnson faces the challenge of juggling the Republican Party's divided support for Kyiv's defense while feeling the pressure to pass a comprehensive aid package for U.S. allies.

  • In his quest to find ways to promote funding for Ukraine, Johnson is engaging in discussions with the White House and former president Donald Trump. The divisive dynamic within the party and the urgency of the situation in Ukraine present a significant challenge for Johnson.

  • Johnson must craft a package that includes some policy wins for Republicans while also gaining Democratic approval. Despite concerns from some progressive Democrats regarding support for Israel, most Democratic lawmakers have rallied behind the Senate-passed package.

Biden vs. Trump: Who is leading the polls?
Quick Glance: Biden Leads Trump by 4 Points in Reuters/Ipsos Poll
  • The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that U.S. President Joe Biden has widened his lead over Donald Trump as the Republican candidate gears up for the first of four upcoming criminal trials.

  • In the survey, 41% of registered voters stated they would vote for Biden, a Democrat, compared to 37% who chose former President Trump. This 4-point lead was an increase from the 1-point lead Biden had in a Reuters/Ipsos poll in March.

  • The poll has a 4% margin of error for registered voters, and many voters remain undecided seven months before the election.

  • While nationwide surveys are crucial indicators of American support for political candidates, only a few competitive states typically sway the balance in the U.S. electoral college, which ultimately determines the winner of a presidential election.

Arizona Republicans again block attempt to repeal 1864 abortion ban
Quick Glance: Arizona Republicans foil another effort to repeal 1864 abortion ban
  • Arizona House Republicans once again thwarted an attempt on Wednesday to repeal the state's nearly complete abortion ban from 1864, leaving Democrats without a vote on their repeal bill for the second consecutive week.

  • Despite facing pressure from influential conservatives, such as former President Trump and Senate hopeful Kari Lake, urging GOP leaders to lift the ban, the Republicans blocked the repeal.

  • State House Democrats made a procedural maneuver to attempt to suspend House rules and bring the repeal bill to the floor for discussion. However, this action was rejected by the GOP majority, with only one Republican, Representative Matt Gress, crossing party lines to support bringing up the repeal bill.

  • A similar endeavor to repeal the ban was obstructed by Republicans last week. Following persistent criticism of the law by Democrats both within and outside the state throughout the week, prominent figures like Trump and Lake recognized the political risks and advocated for a change in direction within the Legislature.

  • The Supreme Court is considering whether Jan. 6 rioters can be charged with obstructing an official proceeding, potentially impacting Trump's election interference case.

  • During Tuesday's hearing, justices expressed concerns about the Justice Department's use of the obstruction statute to prosecute those involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

  • A potential consequence of a ruling in favor of Fischer could affect Trump, although this outcome is not definitive. Prosecutors in Trump's case have emphasized that even if Fischer succeeds, Trump's actions would still be governed by a more restrictive interpretation of the law.

  • The provision was enacted in 2002 as part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, passed after the Enron accounting scandal. Both Fischer and Trump argue that the obstruction law does not apply to their alleged conduct, meaning the charges should be dropped.

Quick Glance: Jack Smith Urges Supreme Court to Reject Trump's Immunity Claim
  • Special counsel Jack Smith pushed the Supreme Court in a court filing ahead of the April 25 arguments to reject former President Donald Trump's stance that he should be given absolute immunity in the federal election interference case.

  • Outlined in the 66-page filing were a series of arguments by Smith and his team against Trump's assertion that a president is shielded from criminal prosecution.

  • Prosecutors contended that there are no presidential authorities that would grant Trump immunity in this instance, and historical evidence discredits Trump's assertions.

  • Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Smith in 2022 to probe Trump's alleged involvement in disputing the 2020 presidential election results. The Supreme Court is scheduled to conduct oral arguments on Trump's immunity argument on April 25.
