Mary Trump has changed her tune about the possibility of her uncle, Donald Trump, running for president again in 2024. Trump’s niece – one of his most vocal critics – has repeatedly cast doubt on the idea. But two things now point to a possible run, she told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Tuesday. “I thought that (he wouldn’t run again) for a long time because he lost so badly to Joe Biden that I didn’t think that he’d ever want to put himself in a position of losing again,” said Mary Trump. “And I think that would have been the case, if not for two things,” she continued.

Lawyers for Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer on Tuesday attempted to counter a woman’s accusation that Bauer sexually assaulted her by releasing text messages the woman exchanged with Bauer and others. AdvertisementThe texts include messages the woman exchanged with Bauer and a friend after the April encounter, in which the woman said she had enjoyed being with Bauer and expressed an interest in seeing him again. “I remember this vividly as it was very startling and painful,” the woman wrote in her sworn statement seeking the court order. But Bauer attorney Shawn Holley, in a court filing Tuesday, claimed the text messages offer a clearer sense of the relationship between the woman and Bauer.

Black Lives Matter Rhode Island PAC called for the immediate resignation of the state’s Democratic Party strategist who tweeted out about Sen. Lindsey Graham’s COVID-19 diagnosis. The Providence Journal reported that Republicans in the state, including Rhode Island Republican Party Chairwoman Sue Cienki, called for her "immediate resignation."

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The mastermind behind the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti is most likely still at large, said the country’s caretaker leader. He said he remained baffled by the ultimate motive a month after the crime shattered the nation and left a political void. The police and the prosecutor’s office continue to issue warrants for new suspects on a near daily basis. Few in Haiti believe the authorities have yet closed in on the people who organized and financed the complex plot. It appears to have been planned for months in Florida and Haiti and involved flying in two dozen Colombian ex-commandos to the country.

Gretchen Whitmer is warning in a new fundraising letter that the Democrat faces a 2022 challenge from Republican Betsy DeVos, who served as U.S. education secretary under former President Trump. The letter seems designed to maximize donations to the Whitmer campaign, Simon Schuster, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, told the Free Press. Nate Bailey, a DeVos spokesman, told the Free Press the former education chief "hasn’t said word one" about entering the 2022 race. Deeper in the Whitmer letter, the Democrat’s campaign appears to acknowledge that a DeVos challenge is only hypothetical at this point, the Free Press notes.

All the while, he and his allies peddle a traditionalist, ethnic nationalism and constantly sound the alarm over the rather illusory menace posed by immigrants, minorities and refugees — or “invaders,” as Orban described them — to Hungary’s way of life. Like a number of Republican state governments in the United States, Orban has sought to make Hungarian education more “patriotic.” In his attacks on various civil society institutions, Orban has been accused of invoking antisemitic tropes. The Hungarian parliament recently passed anti-LGBT legislation that prompted furious backlash elsewhere on the continent, with some European leaders calling for Hungary’s departure from the E.U. And under Orban’s watch, Hungary appears to have deployed military-grade spyware to tap the phones of independent journalists and dissidents, a slap in the face of the E.U.’s strict digital privacy protections. (Orban’s office responded to the allegations with a broad statement asserting its continued governance by “rule of law.”)

Recently retired senior Immigration and Customs Enforcement official Thomas Feeley left the agency after being fed up with the Biden administration’s border policies endangering national security. "So if that’s what you’re going to split hairs on, we’re pretty much screwed as a country going down this road." Feeley revealed the administration directly hired non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to join DHS and ICE following Biden’s inauguration. The retiree let spill that some NGOs began cutting out field office directors and law enforcement officers in order to release migrants into the country – of which he claims to possess email evidence. "As a member of the Senior Executive Service, a Service entrusted by the public to ensure whatever administration is in charge follow the law, we currently are not.

Valerie Jarrett, the former senior adviser to President Obama, faced mockery online Tuesday after appealing to her Twitter followers to cut a $6 or $60 check for the Obama Presidential Center in honor of the 44th president's birthday. "For his birthday gift, I’m asking you to chip in $6 or $60 to help us bring the Obama Presidential Center to life in Chicago." The Associated Press reported that construction for the $500 million project has been delayed because of a federal review needed in the historic parkland.

The New York Times considers itself--very self-consciously-- a living historical record. Why would the New York Times, America’s paper of record, print propaganda’s from a totalitarian regime and pretend it was a news article? Those payments weren't disclosed at the time, they were hidden from New York Times readers; they were only uncovered after the fact by The Washington Free Beacon. The New York Times tried to hide the evidence that it ever happened. The biggest factor was that The New York Times was taking money from the Communist Chinese government.

TOKYO — Spain’s top soccer league has agreed to a deal in principle to sell 10 percent of its commercial business to a private equity firm, CVC Capital Partners, for around $3 billion. If approved by the league’s clubs, the deal could help the league’s cash-strapped teams, including giant ones like F.C. CVC, a major sports investor, has been trying to strike similar deals with major leagues across Europe in recent years. In a statement on Wednesday after The New York Times reported the agreement, La Liga said it would place all the assets related to the deal into a new company in which CVC will be a 10 percent partner. La Liga would retain total control over the selling arrangements for its broadcast contracts and sporting regulations.

Her ascent continued in 2017 after Cleveland-area Democratic leaders rallied behind her push to lead the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, which had been troubled by endemic corruption that ultimately led to a 28-year prison sentence for its former chairman. Ms. Brown won the bid, becoming the first woman and the first Black person to hold the position. The district is heavily Democratic, virtually assuring Ms. Brown’s victory. In 2018, she survived an attempt by progressive activists to take control of the Cuyahoga County party committee and unseat her as chair. Ms. Brown has pitched herself as the kind of politician “who can work with the administration” and Democratic leaders in Congress.
