U.S. authorities are at odds with Donald Trump’s request



The U.S. Justice Department believes a ‘special master’ would compromise their probe into Trump’s classified files

U.S. officials have reportedly found evidence of obstruction when it comes to the handling of classified records at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The Justice Department (DOJ) believes a special master, which Trump’s legal team have requested, would impede the ongoing investigation.

DOJ officials are warning the former U.S. President may have concealed documents during an FBI search at his Mar-a-Lago property, which took place in June.

Meanwhile, the incumbent President Joe Biden is defending the FBI’s raids.

“Let me say this to my MAGA Republican friends in Congress: Don’t tell me you support law enforcement if you won’t condemn what happened. Don’t tell me. Can’t do it. For God’s sake, whose side are you on?”


President Biden said he is “sickened” to see attacks on the FBI, including threats on the lives of law enforcement agents and their families, for doing their jobs. He is also standing firm about not defunding U.S. Police, and the FBI itself.

When a U.S. President leaves office, they must transfer all of their documents and emails to a government agency known as the National Archives

But the FBI is probing whether Trump took some of these documents with him in January 2021, following his election defeat.

The court filing notes “the former President offered no explanation as to why boxes of government records remained at the premises nearly five months after the production of (15 boxes of documents) and nearly one-and-a-half years after the end of the Administration.”

Trump believes the contents were declassified and is denying any wrongdoing.

Pink-coloured pigeon rescued in New York



Pigeons come in a whole range of colours, but it seems pink isn’t one of them

That’s exactly what happened in New York though, where a bright-coloured bird was rescued.

Wildlife groups believe the pigeon was dyed as part of a gender reveal ceremony.

The feathery friend was suffering from malnutrition when it was found in Madison Square Park.

In a statement, the Wild Bird Fund says they should never be dyed because of risks like starvation and even death.

It went on to say the “poor bird has it bad enough unable to find food in the wild, fly well or escape predators.”

“But being a bright, unusual colour makes him even more of a target.”

Donald Trump claims deposition as “biggest witch hunt”



Donald Trump has described the investigation into his company as the “biggest witch hunt” in the history of the United States during a formal deposition.

In September 2022, the New York Attorney General Letitia James, announced she would be looking into the Trump organisation’s business practices.

James alleges the former president “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and cheat the system”.

The lawsuit also takes aim at some of Trump’s children, and executives of his business.

During the deposition tape, Trump can be seen reading a lengthy statement.

During this, the former president asserts his constitutional right to not answer questions, while accusing James of investigating him out of political spite.
