Mueller Prosecutors: Trump Did Obstruct Justice
Privately, two prosecutors who were then employed in the special counsel’s office told other Justice Department officials that had it not been for the unique nature of the case—the investigation of a sitting president of the United States—they would have advocated that Trump face federal criminal charges. These DOJ officials made this disclosure to me in part because of what they regarded as Attorney General Barr’s misrepresentations of the Mueller report, and they believed it was important for the public and Congress to know what Mueller’s prosecutors had privately concluded: that a charge of obstruction of justice was indeed merited by Trump’s actions in the Flynn matter.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Maryland plan to file subpoenas Tuesday seeking records from the Trump Organization, the Treasury Department and dozens of other entities as part of a lawsuit accusing Donald Trump of profiting off the presidency. The flurry of subpoenas came a day after U.S. District Court Judge Peter J. Messitte approved a brisk schedule for discovery in the case alleging that foreign and domestic government spending at Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel amounts to gifts to the president in violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause.

Judge: No rejecting mail ballots due to signature mismatch
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia election officials must stop rejecting absentee ballots and absentee ballot applications because of a mismatched signature without first giving voters a chance to fix the problem, a federal judge ruled Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Leigh May ordered the secretary of state’s office to instruct county election officials to stop the practice for the November midterm elections. She outlined a procedure to allow voters to resolve alleged signature discrepancies. Two lawsuits filed earlier this month allege that election officials are improperly rejecting absentee ballots and applications in violation of their constitutional rights.
