News Update: Trump’s Letter to Judge, Biden’s Address, Hurricane Beryl, Attempted Coup, Lawsuit against Fox, Technology Grants

The legal battles continue for former President Donald Trump as his attorneys have sent a letter to New York State Judge Juan Merchan, requesting to throw out Trump’s conviction in the Stormy Daniels hush money case. The attorneys argue that yesterday’s Supreme Court decision granting presidents immunity from prosecution means the evidence used against Trump should never have been admitted, as it pertained to events that occurred while he was in office. They also requested a delay in Trump’s sentencing, which is scheduled for July 11.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity, President Biden addressed the nation in a five-minute televised speech, warning of the consequences if Trump were to return to the White House. Biden expressed concern that without legal restrictions, Trump could act like a king and do as he pleases. Biden reassured the public that he will continue to abide by the limits imposed by law during his term in office.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Beryl has strengthened to a Category 5 storm, causing widespread devastation in the Caribbean. Islands such as Barbados and Grenada have been severely impacted, with many communities left flattened. The storm is expected to impact Jamaica, even if it does not make a direct landfall.

In Ukraine, the Security Service has thwarted an attempted coup by four individuals suspected of having ties to Russia. The group allegedly planned to recruit former soldiers and stage an attack on government buildings. The Security Service seized weapons, ammunition, computers, and documents from the group.

On a different note, Hunter Biden has filed a lawsuit against Fox News in New York state court, accusing the network of unlawfully using images of him in explicit situations in a series titled “The Trial of Hunter Biden” on Fox Nation. The lawsuit alleges that Fox violated New York laws regarding pornography.

Lastly, the Biden Administration is issuing $504 million in grants to support the development of technology hubs across the country. These hubs will focus on areas such as quantum computing, lithium-ion batteries, and computer chips, aiming to establish technology manufacturing centers outside of major cities.
