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. Attorneys for Trump reportedly told Judge Juan Merchan they were calling only three witnesses, but that was subject to change. Trump is accused of falsifying business records in connection with alleged hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.       Senate Democrats are once again trying to pass a bipartisan border bill after it was blocked by Republicans earlier this year. 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. The state's 20th district, GOP-controlled for two decades, has two Republicans vying for the spot in today's special runoff election.        A major earnings report is due to be announced this Wednesday. Valued at two-point-three trillion dollars, Nvidia is the third largest stock on the S&P 500. The chip maker is large enough to cause the markets to move significantly with its report. Another big name due to report this week is Target. The retail giant has been trying to bring back shoppers who are wary of inflation.       Mayor Eric Adams is considering revoking the key to New York City he gave to Sean "Diddy" Combs, after video surfaced of Combs assaulting his ex-girlfriend. Adams said the video is deeply disturbing and a far cry from the celebration in Times Square last year. The mayor said he and his City Hall team will decide what the next steps will be.       A Southern California grocer is selling a luxury pineapple for a lot of money. The Rubyglow pineapple sells for 395 dollars at Melissa's Produce. Only a few thousand of these pinkish-red, designer pineapples are produced each year by Fresh Del Monte.
