Starmer quotes a recent report that states that domestic abusers are among the inmates eligible for the early release scheme, with Sunak saying there is a ‘governor’s lock’, which would prevent dangerous criminals being allowed back onto the streets. At the start of May the prison population in England and Wales was 87,505, with the official usable capacity put at 88,895. Capacity has increased by 3,000 places in a year, but still cannot keep up with demand

Reporter: “President Biden, will you be serving your full four-year term or handing over power to Vice President Harris?”

Biden: “What do you think would have happened if black Americans had stormed the Capitol? I don’t think [Trump would] be talking about pardons. It’s the same guy who wanted to tear gas you as you peacefully protested George Floyd’s murder.”

Alina Habba: “You should look at how many logs they have of state officials—Letitia James, Fani Willis—visiting the White House and then tell me that this is not a Biden trial.”

Andy McCarthy reacts to Judge Merchan instructing the jury that they DO NOT NEED UNANIMITY to convict Trump. He will treat 4-4-4 on three different choices of felonies as a “unanimous verdict.”

Five steps to registering voters: Step 1: Buy a MAGA hat Step 2: Wear it publicly Step 3: When someone is friendly, talk to them.

Younger black voters are peeling away from Joe Biden and supporting President Trump in massive numbers, and CNN can barely believe their eyes.

BREAKING: Just three hours into deliberations, the jury has come back to Judge Merchan with multiple questions. This could be a good sign for Trump, suggesting a holdout in the jury pool.

THIS IS WHAT POLITICAL CORRUPTION LOOKS LIKE. (LIBERAL) NY Judge Merchan has CHANGED the law and has INSTRUCTED jurors that they DO NOT have to unanimously agree on what crime Trump is guilty of.

This trial is RIGGED. I know it, you know it, and most importantly, ALL OF AMERICA KNOWS IT.

This is insane. New York Judge Merchan just told jurors that they DO NOT have to unanimously agree on what crime Trump is guilty of.
