Prosecutors and defense lawyers in the classified documents case against former President Donald Trump are due in court Wednesday for the first time since the judge postponed the trial earlier this month. Just a day before, a newly unsealed motion revealed that President Trump’s team had alleged prosecutorial misconduct on the part of special counsel Jack Smith and the Biden administration. Other unsealed court filings reveal that additional documents marked as “classified” were discovered in President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home by his lawyers after the FBI completed its search of his Southern Florida estate in 2022.

Norway, Spain, and Ireland have announced that they will formally recognize a Palestinian state, prompting Israel to immediately recall its ambassadors to the three nations.

A powerful tornado ripped through a small Iowa town on May 21, killing several people and leaving at least a dozen injured, authorities said. Images from the town of Greenfield show a path of utter destruction, with homes reduced to splinters, debris strewn far and wide, and several large wind turbines toppled. Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said the state would provide its full resources to help the impacted areas recover, and reassured residents that support was in place, with crews working to provide shelter, food, and water, and to restore power to thousands of residents.
