The Manhattan district attorney subpoenaed documents late last year from a big-money investor that loaned Donald Trump’s company money to build a skyscraper in Chicago — a sign that the DA is continuing to expand his financial fraud investigation into the ex-president, according to a report Monday. Sources told CNN that District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. slapped Fortress Investment Group with a grand jury subpoena relating to the $130 million it provided to the Trump Organization for the construction of the Windy City’s Trump International Hotel and Tower, which was completed in 2009.

The hosts of Fox & Friends expressed concern on Sunday that liberals are plotting to turn Mother's Day into "Birthing People's Day."
"If you're a lefty, it might be happy Birthing People's Day," Fox News co-host Pete Hegseth announced. "Seriously! This is Democrats -- the new phrase they want to use is, you're not a mother. Nope! Done! You're a birthing person."
Hegseth pointed to a House committee hearing where the phrase "birthing people" was used on at least two occasions. However, the terms "mothers" and "moms" were also used.
Co-host Jedidiah Bila echoed the remarks of Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who lashed out at "woke" liberals over the phrase.
"I could not agree more," Bila said. "Let me tell you something. I birthed a baby. I am a mom. I am proud of myself. I am always astonished at my body. I'm like, you know what? We're super heroes. We women are super heroes for being able to do that. I want proper credit."
Hegseth recalled that he had once tried to experience the pain of childbirth during a Fox & Friends segment in 2019.
"Thank God for women," co-host Lawrence Jones said. "God designed them to give birth because, whew, I can do a lot of things. I don't think that's for me."
"Yep," Bila agreed. "We have a higher pain tolerance. And I did it without drugs."
"But I'm officially a birthing person," Hegseth noted. "Next time someone tells you that, tell them you're insane! They are moms and they give birth."

'My, how the mighty have fallen': Lindsey Graham mocked by ex-RNC official for latest suck-up to Trump
Appearing on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show," former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele both lamented the Republican Party's complete capitulation to Donald Trump and then mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for claiming that the one-term president is the future of the party.
Noting Graham's comments on Fox News where he stated, "I would just say to my Republican colleagues, can we move forward without President Trump? The answer is no," Steele said the GOP has been brought to a new low.
'My, how the mighty have fallen and sunken to the lowest of lows that Donald Trump is your savior," he began. "The reality of it is Donald Trump five years ago was someone that everyone was like, 'why is he here?' and now they are kicking everyone else out of the room because he is here."
"It speaks of desperation -- desperation of leadership, desperation for ideas, desperation for a way to move the country forward and embrace its diversity," he continued. "That's what Liz Cheney is trying, has been trying to tell them and she has shown the leadership, which they are threatened by, as one of her caucus members put it, you know, 'she's like that girlfriend who doesn't listen to you.' Really? that's your go-to with Liz Cheney? That tells you where we are."

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) on Sunday likened the Republican Party to the Titanic over the refusal to believe that former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden.
While speaking to CBS host John Dickerson on Face the Nation, Kinzinger weighed in on an effort to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from leadership because she has insisted that the 2020 election was not stolen.
"Liz Cheney is saying exactly what [House Minority Leader] Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection," Kinzinger pointed out. "She's just consistently been saying it. And a few weeks later, Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people."
"And so I think what the reality is is as a party we have to have an internal look and a full accounting as to what lead to January 6th," he continued. "Right now, it's basically the Titanic. We're like in the middle of this slow sink, we have a band playing on the deck, telling everybody it's fine. And meanwhile, as I've said, Donald Trump's running around trying to find women's clothing to get on the first lifeboat."
Kinzinger argued that refusing to acknowledge the truth of the Jan. 6 insurrection is "not good" for the future of the Republican Party.
"We're four months after Jan. 6, an insurrection, something that was unthinkable in this country," he observed. "And the message from the people that want to get rid of Liz Cheney is to say it's just time to focus on the future and move on, like this was 10 years ago and we've been obsessed about it since. It's been four months and we have so many people including our leadership in the party that has not admitted that this is what it is, which was an insurrection led by the president of the United States, well deserving of a full accounting from Republicans."
According to Kinzinger, 70 percent of Republicans "believe the election was stolen because they've been told it was."
"They've been told in many cases by Republican leaders," he remarked. "At least Republican leaders have not countered it. On something so vast and crazy as the election was stolen."
"That's why you have this real battle right now in the party," Kinzinger added. "This idea of let's just put our differences aside and be unified. You cannot unify truth with lies. The lie is that the election was stolen. The truth is Joe Biden beat Donald Trump. And I'm sorry that 74 million people voted for Donald Trump. They weren't disenfranchised. They were simply outnumbered."
