The Lead: Hunter Biden's Special Council

President Biden’s son Hunter Biden says that the Justice Department decided to “renege on the previously agreed-upon plea agreement.” This was the slap-on-the-wrist deal he was offered for a litany of bad behavior that a judge recently rejected. 

On Friday, the Justice Department appointed a special counsel to take over the investigation. The counsel will be led by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss. 

Lawyers for Hunter Biden filed a response to the government’s Motion to Vacate on Sunday. It says that the plea deal was “proposed and largely dictated” by prosecutors for the government. Meaning: Is it the Biden team’s fault that he was offered such favorable terms? 

Weiss’ team has filed a motion asking the judge in Delaware to dismiss this case so that they can take a fresh swing at it. According to the Wall Street Journal, "It said it now expected the case against him to go to trial, and it needed to try the case elsewhere, including in California, where Biden lived during the years at issue in the case."

Trump Facing Yet Another Indictment?

Will Donald Trump face a fourth indictment this week? A grand jury will meet in Georgia this week to decide if the former President broke the law over accusations that he asked election officials to “find” new votes to overturn his defeat in the state. 

This case involves calls to Georgie’s secretary of state Brad Raffensperger. Prosecutors also say that they have texts and emails that link the Trump team to attempts to breach the voting software in Coffee County. 

This would be the fourth indictment for the President this year alone. The first related to campaign finance violations over alleged hush money to Stormy Daniels. The second was in Floriday over alleged illegal retention of classified documents. The third was also related to the campaign include a charge of conspiracy to obstruct the certification of President Biden’s win. 

And yet, the Trump campaign keeps going. Last week he joked that he only needs “one more indictment to close out this election. One more indictment, and this election is closed out.” By this he means that the government is pushing his voters more solidly into his corner.

Leaders of the new Niger government say that they are prepared to meet with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) but other reports say that they are preparing for a “possible mobilization for a military operation" too. 

Niger’s new leadership comes after a coup and ousting of President Mohamed Bazoum. The military now says that it will prosecute him for “high treason and undermining the internal and external security” of the country. 

The new Prime Minister Ali Mahamane Lamine Zeine says that it is prepared for a meeting with ECOWAS to discuss recent sanctions that were implemented after President Bazoum’s ousting. ECOWAS is backed by the U.S.

“We hope… [ECOWAS] will come here to meet us to discuss how the sanctions imposed against us will be lifted,” he said.

China's Tiny Bubbles

Chinese researchers say that they have developed new technology to advance submarine detection with the slightest acoustic and vibration reduction systems. They say that this could detect even nuclear-powered submarines cruising at high speeds by picking up their “almost imperceptible bubbles.” 

These tiny bubbles, the researchers say, are even more powerful than the advanced magnetic anomaly detectors that are currently used. This could threaten the U.S. dominance of the oceans, according to the South China Morning Post, where the U.S. casually goes where it wants because it uses “the most difficult to detect submarines, with sophisticated acoustic and vibration reduction systems to blend them into the background noises of the ocean.”
