    Former President Donald Trump said on video that he had not won the 2020 election after claiming for over two years to have been the rightful winner.
    Trump made the comment during an interview published Monday by The Atlantic with a group of historians working on a book about his presidency. During the interview, Trump defended the legacy of his sole term in office. His claims that the 2020 election was stolen continue to shape U.S. politics. https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-finally-admits-defeat-i-didnt-win-election-1695339

    CNN has obtained 2,319 text messages that former President Donald Trump’s White House chief of staff Mark Meadows sent and received between Election Day 2020 and President Joe Biden’s January 20, 2021 inauguration.
    The vast trove of texts offers the most revealing picture to date of how Trump’s inner circle, supporters and Republican lawmakers worked behind the scenes to try to overturn the election results and then reacted to the violence that effort unleashed at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
    The logs, which Meadows selectively provided to the House committee investigating the January 6 attack, show how the former chief of staff was at the nexus of sprawling conspiracy theories baselessly claiming the election had been stolen. They also demonstrate how he played a key role in the attempts to stop Biden’s certification on January 6.
    The never-before-seen texts include messages from Trump’s family — daughter Ivanka Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner and son Donald Trump Jr. — as well as White House and campaign officials, Cabinet members, Republican Party leaders, January 6 rally organizers, Rudy Giuliani, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, Sean Hannity and other Fox hosts. There are also text exchanges with more than 40 current and former Republican members of Congress, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mo Brooks of Alabama and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

    A New York judge is holding Donald Trump in civil contempt after the state’s attorney general’s office said he did not comply with a subpoena for documents as part of its investigation into the former President’s company.
    Judge Arthur Engoron said Trump failed to abide by his order to comply with the subpoena, and that his attorneys failed to show how a search of materials held by Trump was conducted. Engoron said Trump would be fined $10,000 a day until he complies. https://www.cnn.com/2022/04/25/politics/trump-contempt-hearing/index.html

    Speaking at a rally two days ahead of voting in a heated Republican Senate primary in Ohio, Donald Trump appeared to be confusing JD Vance, the candidate he has endorsed, with Josh Mandel, a rival who courted Trump for the endorsement. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/may/02/donald-trump-forget-name-jd-vance-josh-mandel
    Trump’s endorsement – despite past remarks in which Vance called Trump “America’s Hitler” and “a moral disaster” – boosted Vance to the top of the polls in Ohio. On Sunday, Mandel continued to hammer his opponent for such remarks, including saying in 2016 he might vote for Hillary Clinton if it seemed Trump might win.
    Trump’s rally on Sunday was in support of Charles Herbster, a candidate for governor in Nebraska who – like Trump – faces accusations of sexual assault and misconduct.
