The Epoch Times: Trump Scores Legal Victory on the Same Day He's Charged by DOJ
Former President Donald Trump's lawsuit against his niece, Mary Trump, will advance after New York Supreme Court judge Robert Reed refused to dismiss the part about breaching the contract. Mary Trump was sued in 2021 for providing Trump’s taxes information to The New York Times, which later published an over 13,000-word article claiming that Trump potentially engaged in tax schemes. The NY Times was also one of the defendants, but Reed dismissed the complaint against the NY Times in May, citing the First Amendment. The tax information under dispute in the lawsuit is protected by a Trump family settlement in April 2001 and could not be released without the consent of Trump.
The lawsuit also reveals how the three NY Times reporters, Susanna Craig, David Barstow, and Russell Buettner, successfully convinced Mary Trump to cooperate with them and provided the critical information for the article titled “Trump Engaged in Suspect Tax Schemes as He Reaped Riches from His Father.” Mary Trump herself wrote a book two years after the event titled “How Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” Trump said he's hurt by Mary Trump's book and the content and allegations about his parents are more hurtful than the material about the president himself.
The Epoch Times: ANALYSIS: How Strong Is the Case Against Trump?
Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on 37 felony counts, including violating the federal Espionage Act, for hoarding classified documents at his estate in Florida and obstructing government attempts to retrieve them. He and an aide, Walt Nauta, have also been charged with conspiracy, false statements and concealing documents. Some experts have questioned the legitimacy of the evidence, but former prosecutors have said that the indictment is “as strong a case as a prosecutor can have.” Trump and Nauta are scheduled to appear in court in Miami on 13 June.
The most serious charges, each carrying a potential 20-year prison sentence, are for Trump’s willful retention of national defence information under the Espionage Act. Trump allegedly possessed documents that included details about US nuclear weapons, the military actions of other countries, and the nuclear capabilities of a foreign nation. The audio recording of a meeting during which Trump allegedly described a “plan of attack” against an undisclosed foreign country prepared for him by the Department of Defense and a senior military official may also be used as evidence. Despite Trump’s “innocent man” claim, prosecutors have video and audio evidence of his alleged illegal activities, which make “for a solid case,” according to former federal prosecutor Paul Pelletier.
Flag And Cross: Advantage DeSantis? Disney Case To Be Tried By Judge Who Once Dismissed Lawsuit Against Governor's 'Don't Say Gay' Law
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Walt Disney Co. are in a legal battle over the state's "Don’t say Gay" law. Judge Mark Walker recused himself from the case due to conflict of interest as one of his "third-degree" relatives held shares in Disney. Judge Allen Winsor has been appointed to handle the case, which could be positive for DeSantis as he issued a ruling dismissing a lawsuit that challenged Florida's "Don’t say Gay" law in 2023. Disney sued DeSantis for revoking the administrative status it enjoyed in governing the land around its Florida theme park. DeSantis' deadline to file motions to dismiss the case is June 26, 2023, while Disney's deadline to respond is July 26, 2023.

The Epoch Times: Trump: Polls Up, Fundraising 'Through the Roof' After Indictment
Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on 37 counts related to the handling of classified documents and has accused President Joe Biden's Department of Justice of targeting him. Trump claims this is because he is his leading political opponent; Trump says he is winning big in the polls and fundraising is through the roof. According to Trump, this indictment will “go down as among the most horrific abuses of power in the history of our country." Furthermore, Trump noted the hypocrisy in the way he was treated over his classified documents compared to the treatment given to Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Following the announcement of 37 federal charges against Trump related to his handling of classified documents, several of his GOP rivals have found themselves in the position of defending their main hurdle to the presidential nomination. Trump is far and away the frontrunner for the nomination, with his main rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, even promising to go after the DOJ over the prosecution if elected. Many observers think that South Carolina Senator Tim Scott’s strategy will be to win a key line of support in his home turf of South Carolina before accepting a position as running mate to the final nominee. Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who has clashed publicly with Trump on several occasions, called it an example of “prosecutorial overreach, double standards, and vendetta politics.”
