Late in the evening on Wednesday, something became very clear here in the United States: Thursday was going to be a rather large news day.
There were the usual anti-Trump musings from the left, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi railed against the Commander in Chief for suggesting that he may give his Republican National Convention acceptance speech from the Rose Garden or South Lawn. Pelosi and others had suggested that this would constitute a violation of The Hatch Act, of course, but the President has insisted that it’s perfectly legal.
And, as always, there are sure to be several headlines generated at the intersection of sports and coronavirus…as there have been all week.
But Thursday’s biggest story got its own juicy tease from New York’s Attorney General, Letitia James.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James said she will deliver a “major national announcement” on Thursday.
And there appears to be little doubt that the announcement could involve the President.
Late last month, James “asked a federal judge to consider a possible inquiry into false statements from the Trump administration that led the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office to retract arguments in defense of a policy to exclude New York from federal programs intended to expedite international travel,” according to the New York Law Journal.
One can only imagine what sort of conjuring of connivery James will unleash upon the world on Thursday.
