In the past week, Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, has made a number of startling allegations in her testimony to the January 6 committee, including that the former president lunged at a Secret Service agent's throat and grabbed the steering wheel of the presidential limousine in an attempt to join his supporters at the Capitol. Trump has roundly denied the allegations in a series of statements against the Select Committee hearings.

Swiss billionaire and Clinton donor Hansjorg Wyss sat in a packed Washington State courtroom Monday to face his first trial over unsuspecting patients who died when his company used an illegal medical substance. Ultimately, five people died. Four of Wyss’ executives went to prison in the federal case, but Wyss walked free.
