Former President Trump's defense team is expected to rest its case today in his criminal hush money trial. Also, it's unclear if Trump will testify in his own defense.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the Senate will vote on the bill this week as Democrats renew their push on the southern border ahead of the 2024 election. The bill would reform asylum laws and approve border funding, among other measures. The legislation is expected to fail due to opposition from both sides of the aisles but has support from the White House.       California voters will decide today who will fill former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's congressional seat through the end of the year.
