Donald Trump says ‘radical left’s anti-police narrative’ is the Big Lie

唐纳德·特朗普‘s attempts to subvert the outcome of the 2020 presidential election are reportedly facing a federal criminal probe as part of an investigation from the US Department of Justice into the events surrounding 6 一月, 2021.

A report from 华盛顿邮报 follows the president’s first speech in Washington DC since leaving office, hours after 迈克·彭斯 also addressed the DC crowd, saying “elections are about the future” – an apparent rejection of his former boss’s baseless fixation on the alleged “theft” of the 2020 总统选举.

In remarks to the America First Policy Institute Summit, the former president railed against the various investigations in which he is at the centre, including the House select committee’s hearings, which revealed evidence of his pressure campaign against Mr Pence to subvert the outcome of the election.

Attorney General Merrick Garland also said on Tuesday that the Justice Department has no qualms about the political blowback that would inevitably occur as a result of criminally indicting Mr Trump.

He made the remarks while speaking at a summit led by the America First Policy Institute, which features many former administration officials.

Mr Trump used his speech to talk about rising crime rates, though there is some evidence that gun violence is worse in Republican states. The former president called for “very, very severe” penalties.

Indiana Republicans struggle to find abortion ban agreement

Indiana Republican lawmakers on Tuesday narrowly advanced a plan to ban nearly all abortions in the state, despite opposition from abortion-rights supporters, who say the bill goes too far, and anti-abortion activists, who say it doesn’t go far enough.
