Donald Trump has paid $110,000 in fines after being held in contempt of court for being slow to respond to a civil subpoena issued by the attorney general of New York state. The House investigation of January 6 has produced a criminal contempt charge for one Trump ally, the former White House strategist Steve Bannon. Last week, a lawyer for James’s office said evidence could support legal action against Trump, his company or both, but a final decision had not been made. He has called James’s investigation “racist” and a politically motivated “witch-hunt”. Trump paid the contempt of court fine on Thursday but must still submit additional paperwork to have the contempt order lifted, James’s office said.

Millions of Germans are expected to take advantage of a summer of cheaper travel from next month under government plans to boost public transport use and give financial relief to consumers facing a cost of living crisis. A €9 a month ticket scheme is to be introduced from 1 June allowing travel on all modes of city and regional transport. The cost of the ticket is a fraction of the normal cost of travel, amounting to around a sixth of the price of the cheapest monthly ticket available for Berlin’s central zones. They suggest that when the experiment is over, ticket prices might have been pushed up considerably by a further expected rise in inflation making public transport less attractive. He told parliament the scheme was already a success before it had launched “as everyone in Germany is talking about public transport”.

Right-wing media outlets have a long history of pretending that White supremacists, White nationalists and neo-Nazis don’t pose as great a terrorist threat in the United States as radical far-right Islamist groups such as al-Qaeda and ISIS (Islamic State, Iraq and Syria). Following the Buffalo massacre, Michael German — a former FBI special agent who infiltrated White supremacist groups during the 1990s — is arguing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation still doesn’t fully recognize the scope of the threat posed by White supremacist and White nationalist groups. German told The Guardian, “White supremacists kill far more Americans than anybody else the FBI designates as domestic terrorists, yet the Bureau still doesn’t document the crimes and fatalities that occur. In March 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released an unclassified threat assessment describing an “elevated threat” coming from far-right White groups. Nonetheless, German has a problem with the way the FBI typically describes violent attacks by White supremacists and White nationalists.
