Former President Trump's political action committees (PACs) raised more than $82 million in the first half of 2021, per Federal Election Commission filings published on Saturday.
Why it matters: It's a significant amount for a former president who's been banned from major social media platforms. It demonstrates his ability to raise huge sums of money should he choose to run for the presidency for a third time.
President Biden announced Friday that he will appoint Gold Star father Khizr Khan, who famously criticized former President Trump during the 2016 campaign, to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
Why it matters: Khan's son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed on the battlefield in Iraq in 2004. Khizr Khan made waves during the 2016 Democratic National Convention when he called out Trump for his disparaging rhetoric about Muslim Americans.
The Treasury Department "must" release former President Trump's tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee, the Department of Justice said in a memo Friday.
The big picture: The DOJ memo comes after a long dispute between the committee, which first sought to obtain the former president's returns two years ago, and Trump, who fought to keep his finances private.
In a sequel to his bestselling "Front Row at the Trump Show," ABC News' Jonathan Karl will be out Nov. 16 with "Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show." You're seeing the cover here for the first time.
Driving the news: The publisher says Karl "tells the story of Trump’s downfall, complete with riveting behind-the-scenes accounts of some of the darkest days in the history of the American presidency," and on-record interviews "with central figures ... telling their stories for the first time."
Donald Trump's advisers are angry at David McIntosh, president of the conservative Club for Growth, for persuading the former president to endorse a losing candidate in the special election for Texas' 6th District.
Why it matters: Susan Wright's defeat Tuesday in a Republican runoff with Navy veteran Jake Ellzey dealt a blow to Trump's aura of invincibility as a Republican kingmaker. It's critical to his 2022 midterm endorsements and continued hold on the GOP.
D.C. Metropolitan Police officer Michael Fanone received a profanity-laced voicemail from a Trump supporter who directed violent threats at him as he testified before the Jan. 6 select committee on Monday.
Details: In the voicemail, which aired on CNN without censorship at Fanone's request, a person accuses the officer of lying about the insurrection before using derogatory language to lambast him.
The same political action committee that launched one of the first ads in the 2022 Florida gubernatorial race — trumpeting tension between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former President Trump — is back with a new spot.
Why it matters: Remove Ron says its first ad went viral, with 350,000 organic views on social media, so it’s launching another to highlight the "growing number" of Trump backers who are now donating to DeSantis’ re-election campaign.
Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell condemned former President Trump's false claims that the Jan. 6 rioters were "hugging and kissing" officers when they invaded the Capitol, calling it a "pathetic excuse" for the fact that he "helped to create this monstrosity.
Why it matters: Gonell is one of four police officers who testified at the first hearing of the Jan. 6 select committee on Tuesday. He recounted the surgery he was forced to undergo due to injuries sustained from the attack, and described how that day made him "more afraid" than his entire U.S. Army deployment to Iraq.
The Justice Department told former Trump administration officials this week that they could testify to the committees investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the New York Times reports.
Why it matters: The move counters the view of President Trump, who has argued that his decisions made as president are protected by executive privilege, per the Times.
Former President Trump endorsed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for re-election in 2022 on Monday.
Why it matters: It's a blow for Texas land commissioner George P. Bush, the last of the Bush family still in office. In announcing his campaign for attorney general last month, Bush issued a scathing attack on Paxton, who is under investigation by the FBI and facing securities fraud charges.
