    (CNN)An Atlanta judge says he will ensure a report from the special grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia won't be an "October surprise."Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, in a hearing Thursday, also criticized District Attorney Fani Willis for hosting a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate running against one of the investigation's potential targets. "It's a 'What are you thinking?' moment," McBurney said. "The optics are horrific." Rudy Giuliani ordered to testify before Georgia grand jury investigating Trump on August 9Both statements could impact the future of the investigation into Trump and the 16 fake GOP electors who signed onto a plan to subvert the Electoral College in the presidential election. All 16 have been notified they are now targets of the criminal investigation, and subpoenas have also been issued recently to members of Trump's legal team overseeing the efforts in Georgia and other battleground states Trump lost.

    Although former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Al Gore both lost presidential elections, there are some crucial differences between their responses to their losses. Gore, in 2000, eventually conceded defeat to then Texas-Gov. George W. Bush and congratulated him on his victory; Trump, however, still doesn't admit that now-President Joe Biden defeated him in 2020. And Senior District Judge Reggie Walton noted, in blunt terms, that Gore/Trump contrast when Capitol rioter Adam Johnson appeared in his courtroom this week for a plea hearing. Johnson, one of the many Trump supporters who invaded the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6 in the hope of stopping Congress from certifying Biden's Electoral College victory, bought into Trump's false, debunked claims of widespread voter fraud. Walton told Johnson, "Al Gore had a better case to argue than Mr. Trump, but he was a man about what happened to him. He accepted it and walked away." Following the 2000 presidential election, Gore questioned the election results in Florida. Gore went weeks without conceding, but some prominent Democrats urged him to concede for...
    Furious parents in Loudoun County, Virginia, have slammed Barack Obama, accusing him of calling a rape case involving a 'boy in a skirt' an example of 'fake outrage' after the boy was found guilty by a judge.  On Monday, juvenile court judge Pamela Brooks ruled that the boy - who has not been named - did force himself on the 15-year-old girl on May 28 in the bathroom at Stone Ridge High School in Leesburg, Virginia.  The case drew national attention because the boy was wearing a skirt at the time and the girls' parents - Scott and Jessica Smith - said it was what they feared might happen more if Loudoun County Schools starts allowing boys into girls' bathrooms frequently as part of a progressive transgender policy.  Republican Gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin has harnessed part of his education platform in the case, saying: 'What tragedy next awaits our children?' On Sunday, Obama was campaigning for Youngkin's opponent - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe - when he attacked Youngkin's general position on education, the Capitol riot, and policing.  He said, in...
    Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed the Biden administration Saturday on "Justice with Judge Jeanine" for inviting the United Nations Human Rights Council, which includes countries like China, Russia, Cuba and Venezuela, to investigate the United States.  JUDGE JEANINE: In his never-ending campaign to put America last, the Biden administration has invited the United Nations Human Rights Council that includes China, Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela to judge whether America is a racist nation.  … Now let me see if I have this straight. You invite people from the U.N. who hate the United States to come here, on our soil, to judge us, without concern for their bias, their hatred, their prejudice, and their outright opposition and hostility to democracy, to judge us? Never in history has this ever happened.  You invite China, who has one million Uyghurs in concentration camps, to judge us? Cuba that’s arresting journalists, beating and killing demonstrators who simply want food and liberty, to judge us. Venezuela, who tortures their own citizens, and Russia, run by a former KGB intel agent, where enemies of the government are...
    It took a vast and viral showing of public outrage for a Michigan court to keep a man accused of shooting his 6-year-old neighbor over a bike in his lawn in jail. Ryan Le-Nguyen was initially allowed to post a $10,000 bail after being accused of shooting the child playing on the sidewalk in front of Le-Nguyen’s home through his window last Sunday in the Detroit suburb of Ypsilanti Township, county officials explained in social media posts. Eli Savit, the prosecuting attorney, said on Wednesday in his Facebook post, “we have charged that case with the highest possible available charges--assault with intent to murder.” “We share in the community's pain and anger from a child being shot,” Savit added. “And we know that, for many, the pain and anger is compounded by the fact that the defendant was able to make his bond as set by the court.”  The attorney continued: “To be clear: our office recommended significantly more restrictive bond conditions, and we disagree with the bond decision that was handed down by the court. That is why, on Tuesday afternoon, we filed an emergency motion to cancel the defendant's...
    OAKLAND — Going into Friday’s federal court hearing, Luis Augustine-Munoz did not appear to be a likely candidate to avoid prison time for a conviction of being a felon in possession of a pistol that had been reported stolen from the home of a retired San Jose cop. But for Augustine-Munoz, the time since his July 2018 arrest in Pittsburg has been a path toward redemption; he quickly admitted responsibility, excelled at his job and eventually started his own t-shirt business, and — perhaps most important to the judge — stayed sober and arrest-free during the more than two years he’s been out of custody awaiting a sentence. For all that, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar rejected prosecutors’ request for a prison term and gave Augustine-Munoz six months of home detention and five years of supervised release. “Mr. Augustine-Munoz, I believe in you. That’s why I’m doing this,” Tigar said in court Friday morning. He later added, “I think you’re a different person than you were when you were arrested. Everyone tells me they are a different person, but I...
    A Long Island man convicted of driving drunk and killing a 12-year-old Boy Scout and injuring four others on the side of a road in 2018 will serve up to 25 years in prison after the judge turned down a request for a new trial. Thomas Murphy, 61, will serve at least 8 ⅓ years in prison for the 2018 crash that killed Andrew McMorris. The sentence was handed down after an emotional day of impact statements at Suffolk County Supreme Court in Riverhead, New York, on Wednesday. Earlier on Wednesday, the judge rejected a request by Murphy’s lawyer, Steve Politi, to throw out the guilty verdict due to juror misconduct, according to WCBS-TV. Politi made the request after four jurors filed affidavits claiming they heard fellow jurors inappropriately talking about the crash outside the courtroom. Thomas Murphy (seen left in a Riverhead, New York, court on Wednesday), 61, was sentenced to between 8 1/3 and 25 years in prison by a Suffolk County judge In 2018, Murphy was drunk behind the wheel of his Mercedes when...
    Poll Would you judge someone who stayed with their cheating partner? Yes No Would you judge someone who stayed with their cheating partner? Yes 4 votes No 1 votes Now share your opinion       An Australian dating coach has polled the public about whether they would judge friends and family who forgave their partner after they cheated - and the results are split. Relationship expert Louanne Ward posed the controversial question on her Facebook page She Said, He Said, asking whether it was considered 'weak' or 'foolish' to stay when a level of trust has been broken. 'If you decide to stay with someone who cheated on you, do you think other people judge you?' She wrote. Some of the first responses suggested that judgement would come as second nature because people 'outside' of the relationship can't imagine forgiving that person.  Relationship expert Louanne Ward posed the controversial question on her Facebook page, asking whether it was considered 'weak' or 'foolish' to stay when...
    SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff urged residents to be more understanding about the county’s face mask mandate following a confrontation he was involved in on Wednesday with a customer at a hardware store. Wolff called the sheriff’s office after Terry Toller slapped a business card out of his hand. Wolff tried to intervene after Toller was upset about being told to wear a mask, he said during the county’s COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday evening. “I was in the line and I heard a person saying ‘you ought to be wearing a mask,' one of the employees, and he said ‘I don’t have to,‘” Wolff said. “So I walked up there and said, ‘you know, you need to be wearing a mask’ and start to hand my card. And you saw what happened.” Toller left the store shortly after the confrontation, but turned himself in Thursday morning after sheriff’s deputies filed an arrest warrant against him for assault of a public servant. Those charges were quickly downgraded to disorderly conduct for using profanity in a public, a low-level...

Image: CBS Only one catch: the cosplays were made in a day, with only household items. I guess that’s two catches. This last week, James Corden decided to nerd up his show, The Late Late Show With James Corden, with a Doctor Who cosplay contest. Challenging his viewers to build their best lockdown Who cosplays in less than twenty-four hours, he invited a handful on the show to be judged. But, surprise surprise, Corden wasn’t the only one judging, as David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker showed up, in full Doctor regalia, to check out the work of the contestants. There are some truly deep cuts here, including noodly-faced Ood, alongside a Cyberman, a Dalek, and others you might expect. And Whittaker and Tennant are both clearly delighted by the effort put forth by these fans. It’s amazing what you can do with random household items.

    PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona judge has rejected a plea deal for a man who used a homemade armored vehicle to block a highway bridge near the Hoover Dam in 2018. Mohave County Judge Billy Sipe called the deal that would have given Matthew Wright less than 10 years in prison too lenient. Wright, 32, of Henderson, Nevada, pleaded guilty to making a terrorist threat and two other felony crimes as part of a deal in February.

Wright was arrested in June 2018 and faced multiple charges after blocking traffic by parking his vehicle across lanes on the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Bridge above the Colorado River, prosecutors said.
