From Washington: The Politics Of The Indictment Of Former President Trump

Former President Trump was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury Thursday. The charges stem from District Attorney Alvin Bragg's probe into hush money payments made during his 2016 presidential campaign. Though many have criticized the investigation as a "weaponization" of the justice system, Trump is expected to use the historic prosecution to garner support for his 2024 campaign for re-election. FOX News D.C.-based Correspondent David Spunt joins FOX News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram to discuss the legal stakes for the former president in the coming months, political reactions to the indictment, and how the charges could impact the upcoming election cycle. Amid rising tensions with foreign adversaries, the Pentagon has called on Congress to pass its $842 billion military budget.

Trey Gowdy: Trump Indictment Is The Latest Example Of A “Corrupted” Justice System

Former President Donald Trump was indicted Thursday night by a Manhattan grand jury, marking the first time in American history that a former president has faced criminal charges. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had been pursuing an indictment for the former President’s alleged hush money payments made in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Former President Trump, who has announced his 2024 candidacy, responded to his indictment Thursday night, calling this "political persecution and election interference at the highest level." Former South Carolina Congressman and federal prosecutor, Trey Gowdy, joins the podcast to explain the reasons why this is the weakest legal case against former President Trump, his doubts that this indictment will impact the 2024 primary, and why this is an example of our justice system being corrupted by politics. Attending college has long been a popular next step for high school graduates, but as more young adults find themselves strapped with thousands of dollars in debt after graduating, some are looking to another stepping stone for a career path: apprenticeships.

The Wall Street Journal's higher education reporter, Doug Belkin, has spoken at length with many students who are opting to take on apprenticeships instead of college. He joins the Rundown to discuss his insights, the unique benefits apprenticeships can garner for young adults, and the factors he believes portray college as either a tool or a waste of time.   Don't miss the good news with Tonya J.
