Donald Trump pays tribute to ‘extraordinary’ Queen Elizabeth II
Former White House lawyer Ty Cobb says he thinks Donald Trump is in “serious legal water” as part of a broader investigation into January 6 and the attempts to overturn the 2020 election, and the search of Mar-a-Lago is just part of that.
Speaking to CBS News, Mr Cobb said the likelihood of an indictment of Mr Trump is “very high” and he could be barred from running for the presidency again because of his actions during the Capitol riot.
Meanwhile, Trump ally Representative Lauren Boebert decided to take on the moderator instead of her opponent on Saturday in a televised debate on Saturday night. As the debate began, Ms Boebert tried to get local official Edie Sonn to admit to supporting her Democratic opponent in 2020 — though it is unclear what she hoped to gain by proving that point. Ms Sonn did not play along and informed the congresswoman that the debate was not about her.
Mr Trump has added his voice with those mourning Queen Elizabeth II. He told British broadcasters he and the Queen had “great chemistry” and that she liked all of her prime ministers.

Former Trump aide claims ex-president carried secret documents in jacket pocket
A former White House press secretary claimed seeing Donald Trump carry sensitive records in his jacket pocket during his presidency.
Alleging mishandling of classified documents, Stephanie Grisham told USA Today that he would put some of the presidential records in his jacket pocket in the presence of staffers who did not have security clearance to see them.
“I saw him mishandle presidential records” a lot, she told the outlet, adding that Mr Trump did so in front of officials without clearance to see them and he either did not care or had no idea about the potential national security threat posed by the documents.

US appeals ruling on Mar-a-Lago special master
The Justice Department is appealing a judge’s decision to name an independent arbiter to review records seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump‘s Florida home.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Monday granted the Trump team’s request for a so-called special master and temporarily blocked the Justice Department from using for investigative purposes the thousands of records taken from Mar-a-Lago during the Aug. 8 search.
That order has the likely impact of slowing the pace of the investigation into the presence of classified documents at the Florida property.
