NEW YORK — FBI agents may have violated the rights of accused subway shooter Frank James by taking multiple DNA samples from him this week without first contacting his lawyers, the lawyers complain in a court filing. Attorneys for James, held without bail since his April 13 arrest for the stunning explosion of gunfire on a morning rush hour train where 10 people were shot, argue in Brooklyn Federal Court that standard practice required them to be notified beforehand. “By depriving counsel of the ability to be present to witness the procedure, as occurs routinely, they lessened Mr. James’ abili...

During an appearance with MSNBC host Ali Velshi, Donald Trump biographer David Cay Johnston stated that, should the former president pursue his dream of a third presidential run, it will take the Republican Party down three paths -- none of which will be good for the GOP's prospects of regaining the White House.
Speaking with the host, Johnston claimed having the former president at the top of the ticket would be a big win for Democrats who see him as eminently beatable.He noted it could be even worse if he is denied his thrird run as a Republican.
"I think going forward there are three likely outcomes," he told the MSNBC host.
"One is Donald gets the Republican nomination because he is able to turn out his minority of people who win the primaries; the Democrats should be very happy if that happens," he ticked off. "Secondly, he does not get the nomination and runs as an independent, which would allow the Democrats to run virtually anybody and win the White House."
"But the third p[ossibility is that Donald seeing that he would be overwhelmingly trounced and labeled a loser -- a word he hates with a passion -- will tell his supporters to boycott voting," he suggested.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) took a shot at Republican Party Chair Ronna McDaniel after her party performed poorly in the 2022 midterm elections.
During a Sunday appearance on Fox News, host Sean Duffy asked Noem to comment on McDaniel's future as RNC chair.
"Listen, Sean, we need to win," Noem replied. "I mean, that's just the fact. Our kids' future depends on it. So, you know, we really all have a responsibility to message what Republican policies bring to this country."
"And I don't know a party that can continue to lose like we have and keep their jobs," she added. "Everybody needs to evaluate what we are doing. Is it effective and are we messaging truly that our policies work?"

During a CNN "State of the Union" panel on Sunday morning, former Mike Pence chief of staff Marc Short arguably came down the hardest of anyone on the panel on Donald Trump for having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Holocaust-denier Nick Fuentes last week.
With the former president's defenders still trying to put out the firestorm Trump initiated with the meeting that has infuriated conservatives and liberals alike, Short did nothing to put the former president in a good light.
Asked about what he thought by host Dana Bash, the former Pence adviser called out the former president.
"Former president Trump had white nationalist and Holocaust-denier Nick Fuentes, rapper Kanye West -- now known as 'Ye,'" host Bash began. "The former president claimed Fuentes was an unexpected guest and he knows nothing about it."
"Here is what Chris Christie, a potential presidential rival for 2024, told The New York Times: "This is just another example of an awful lack of judgment from president Trump which, combined with his past poor judgments, make him an untenable general election candidate for the Republican Party in 2024. Marc Short, do you agree?" the CNN host prompted.
"I do agree," Short shot back. "I think it's terrible judgment, there's no excuse for it."
"I think, backstage, Hilary [Rosen] reminded me that Mar-a-Lago was one of the first clubs down there to actually allow Jews in," he continued. "The reality is, I think we all know his affection for his daughter Ivanka who converted to Judaism. It's incredibly poor judgment."
"Since the election in 2020, the president has descended deeper into the heart of darkness," he pronounced. "It's another reason why I think Republicans are looking in a different direction in 2024."
