- A federal jury has found former President Donald Trump liable for battery and defamation in the lawsuit brought by writer E. Jean Carroll.
- Carroll says he raped her in a Manhattan department store in the mid-1990s.
- Trump faces criminal charges in New York state over hush money payments made to a porn actress and the possibility of charges in Georgia.
- The pandemic-era rule allowed officials to turn away asylum seekers without a hearing.
- Now an influx of as many as 10,000 migrants per day are expected.
- According to a statement released by the Georgia athletic association on Tuesday, the Bulldogs will not be able to attend a June 12 event with other college teams at the White House.
- The statement from Georgia says the team's schedule interferes with the suggested date which was provided in an invitation received earlier this month.
- Georgia did not provide more specifics of the schedule conflict.
Thursday on Political Rewind: Bill Nigut is in conversation with thought leaders on gun violence and school safety.
