Opinion: 5 Criticisms of Trump's New York Hush Money Trial That Are Just Wrong
Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/GettyAfter hearing testimony from 22 witnesses across 16 trial days spanning five weeks, the defense and prosecution have rested in the criminal trial of Donald Trump. Most legal experts agree: Trump is in big trouble here.

The prosecution's case alleges Trump approved a hush money payment to Stormy Daniels, because he was worried that it would cause a catastrophic scandal—and sink his election prospects in 2016—if the public found out about his affair.

These charges are a big deal, both because of the alleged criminality and because of the ramifications Trump's actions may have had on the election.

TikTokers Must Take a Stand on Gaza or Face the ‘Digitine'
Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/Getty ImagesShe stands on a sidewalk in an oversized floral dress and headpiece, à la Midsommar, lip syncing "let them eat cake" as the catchy tunes of Le Tigre's "Deceptacon" take over. Despite the bouffant hair and lavish dress, we are not in 18th century France and this is not Marie Antoinette—it is Haley Kalil, TikTok's latest it girl. Like Antoinette, Kalil (better known as @haleyybaylee) has found herself at the mercy of her subjects who are calling for her to be digitally guillotined in an emerging trend known as the "digitine."

The digitine refers to a digital purge of "canceled" online celebrities, blocking them with the intent of harming their income following their inaction on the genocide in Gaza. They face an ever-changing set of criteria. No McDonald's, no Barclays bank account. These public figures are judged for their consumer habits rather than their political ones. With recurring phrases like "all eyes on Rafah," and watermelon emojis (a symbol of Palestinian solidarity) dominating comment sections, the reckoning was inevitable.

Special Counsel Seeks Gag Order Over Trump's ‘Locked & Loaded' Claim
Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post via Getty Images Prosecutors in Donald Trump's classified documents case have asked U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon to impose a gag order on the indicted former president after he falsely told his supporters that federal agents were prepared to kill him.

Trump's false accusation—that FBI agents were "authorized to shoot me" and were "locked & loaded ready to take me out & put my family in danger" when they executed the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago in August 2022—was propagated by many Republicans. The FBI, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and several reporters noted that that was a misrepresentation of a basic policy statement, with the same language having been in effect when the agency searched Biden's Delaware home for classified documents.

Prosecutors urged Cannon to bar Trump from making public statements that "pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents."

Opinion: MAGA's Lies About a Deep State Conspiracy to Assassinate Trump Will Endure
Photo Illustration by Erin O'Flynn/The Daily Beast/Getty ImagesA lie travels halfway around the world before the truth gets its boots on. And that was before Twitter (X) came along—which explains why the canard that there was an "assassination attempt" on Donald Trump—spread like wildfire.

It all started when self-described conspiracy theorist Julie Kelly flagged a newly unsealed FBI document authorizing officers to use "deadly force" when searching Mar-a-Lago. And then, a lie that started in the fever swamps quickly made its way into mainstream conservative media, as well as the social media platforms of prominent Republicans.

Attorney General "Merrick Garland basically issued a kill order for President Trump," tweeted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. For his part, Trump claimed that "Joe Biden was lo

International Court of Justice Orders Israel to Stop Its Offensive in Rafah Now
AFP via Getty ImagesThe International Court of Justice on Friday ordered Israel to immediately halt its military offensive in Rafah, the city in southern Gaza where displaced Palestinians have sought shelter from the conflict.

The decision from the world court based in The Hague backed a request brought by South Africa in its case accusing Israel of genocide. The ICJ has no way in which to enforce its orders and Israel has consistently crticized the proceedings as baseless, but the ruling nevertheless adds to international condemnation around the way Jerusalem is carrying out its fight against Hamas.

Before announcing its decision, the court noted that the situation in Rafah has "deteriorated further" since its last order, and that the humanitarian situation in the city is now "disastrous."

Meet Lily Greenberg Call, First Jewish Biden Appointee to Publicly Resign over Gaza
We speak with Lily Greenberg Call, the first known Jewish appointee to resign from the Biden administration over the war in Gaza. Greenberg Call was a special assistant to the chief of staff at the Interior Department after being named to the post by President Joe Biden in early 2023, but she quit on May 15 in a four-page letter that slammed Biden's "disastrous, continued support for Israel's genocide in Gaza." Greenberg Call is at least the fifth high-profile resignation from the Biden administration since October 7. She says her resignation was motivated by her Jewish values. "I feel that I am really living in my Jewishness, in the essence of what I was raised with, by standing up for Palestinians and by demanding their freedom," Greenberg Call tells Democracy Now!, criticizing Biden and others for pitting Jewish safety against Palestinian rights. "I am so angry at the president that he is using my community as justification for this slaughter, making us the face of the American war machine."

Israeli Human Rights Lawyer Attacked While Documenting Settler Raid on Gaza Aid Convoy
Aid agencies are running out of food in southern Gaza amid Israel's ongoing offensive in Rafah and the shutdown of the two main border crossings in the south. Some 1.1 million Palestinians are on the brink of starvation, according to the United Nations, while a "full-blown famine" is taking place in the north. Meanwhile, some Israelis have been blocking aid from reaching the Gaza border, including a violent attack on trucks carrying humanitarian relief through the occupied West Bank earlier this week, when settlers threw food packages on the ground and set fire to the vehicles at the Tarqumiyah checkpoint near Hebron. "They did whatever they want," says Israeli lawyer and peace activist Sapir Sluzker Amran, who documented the attack on the aid convoy. She says Israeli soldiers appeared to be working with the settlers, refusing to intervene. "They were just standing aside like there is nothing that they can do, like it's normal, what's happening."

SAN FRANCISCO - Secretary of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas, National Cyber Director Chris Inglis, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Jen Easterly, and DHS Under Secretary for Policy Rob Silvers met yesterday with industry leaders in technology, business, and cybersecurity to discuss how the federal government and the private sector can better and more proactively partner to tackle the most pressing cybersecurity challenges.

"Cybersecurity is a team sport and we each have a vital role to play," said National Cyber Director Chris Inglis.? "Collaborating with the private sector is instrumental in the Administration's holistic approach to tackling some of the Nation's challenging cybersecurity issues.? That is why I welcomed the opportunity to meet with government and industry leaders in Silicon Valley to build those relationships and identify areas and opportunities for collaboration.  I look forward to continued participation in this important effort."

Yesterday's meeting included substantive discussions aimed at improving cybersecurity-related public-private partnerships, including by strengthening operational collaboration and defining metrics of success.  The discussion, which was rooted in a comprehensive analysis of the evolving threat environment, focused on what government and industry can do together to build global cybersecurity resilience.
