Trump news today: Musk says he prefers ‘less divisive’ candidate in 2024


Biden mocks Trump as ‘the great MAGA King’ in speech on economy

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that he prefers a “less divisive” candidate than Donald Trump for 2024, even though he wants Twitter to lift its ban on the former president.

“Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter,” he said on Twitter on Thursday.

Also on Thursday, the January 6 riot committee investigating the 2021 attack has issued subpoenas to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers who are close allies of Donald Trump: Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama. Each was given the opportunity to voluntarily give evidence.

House majority leader Steny Hoyer has suggested that there may be action against Republicans if they fail to comply with subpoenas issued by the 6 January panel.

And the the Department of Justice is now investigating whether former President Trump or any of his aides violated federal law by mishandling classified documents that ended up at Mar-a-Lago instead of at the national archives at the end of his term.

Fading pro-Trump candidate loses 2020 election challenge

David Perdue, the former Georgia senator who has Donald Trump’s backing in this year’s gubernatorial primary, has suffered a humiliating setback in his attempts to challenge the 2020 election outcome in the state., with a judge throwing out a lawsuit that he dismissed as a product of “speculation, conjecture and paranoia”.

Mr Perdue has failed to rise in the polls despite Mr Trump’s endorsement, and despite taking an increasingly aggressive stance in public. He has remained squarely focused on the 2020 result and the supposed illegitimacy of Joe Biden’s presidency, but Georgia’s Republican voters appear unmoved despite their support for Mr Trump.

The lawsuit, filed alongside a Republican voter, sought a declaration from the judge that 16 former county election officials violated the Georgia constitution in their oversight of the vote.

House majority leader signals possible action against Republicans subpoenaed by 6 Jan panel

House majority leader Steny Hoyer has suggested that there may be action against Republicans if they fail to comply with subpoenas issued by the 6 January panel.

The January 6 riot committee investigating the 2021 attack has issued subpoenas to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers who are close allies of Donald Trump: Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama.

“Nobody’s above the law,” Mr Hoyer was quoted as saying to Fox News Digital on Thursday.

“We’ll pursue the same actions we’d pursue with anybody else who’d refuse,” he added.

When asked about the possibility of non compliance to the subpoenas, Mr Hoyer said: “If you’re prepared to tell the truth, why would you care? If you’re not prepared to tell the truth, it may be a concern to you.”
