LAW: All eyes are on the Supreme Court. We’ll remind you: for forever, Dems have been trying to sneak a peek at Prez Trump’s personal financial records. (It’s typical for prezes to release these, but Trump never did.) Intro multiple subpoenas. Plus court battles over whether these are valid. Lower courts said yes - an outcome Prez Trump wasn’t happy about. Now, the fight’s gone all the way to the Supreme Court. Suspense, thick. Speaking of which, a new prosecutor - the fourth in just a couple months - was named to the Ahmaud Arbery case. This comes as the Justice Dept’s reportedly considering federal hate-crime charges over Arbery’s killing.
WORLD: Recently, Mexico’s prez ordered the armed forces (under the command of the National Guard) to head back to the streets for another four years. The why: increased violence that resulted in about 3,000 homicides in March - the second-highest monthly murder tally ever recorded in Mexico. Now, it looks like the gov is relying on the National Guard to support public security and go after organized criminal groups. Meanwhile, recently, at least 16 people - including newborn babies and mothers - were killed after gunmen opened fire on a maternity hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan. This came around the same time that a suicide bomber killed at least 24 people at a funeral in Afghanistan.
MONEY: Apple’s shifting gears. As in the tech biz is reportedly in talks with Indian gov officials - talks that could result in as much as a fifth of its production being moved from China to India. Think: $40 billion worth of devices like iPhones. Big deal, since this would be very very bad news for China...and very very good news for India. And it comes as a growing number of bizes are apparently worried about becoming too reliant on China. Stay tuned. In other news, some beaches that have reopened are seeing an uptick in trash. See: Cocoa Beach in Florida, where 12,000 pounds of trash were hauled from the beach after it opened back up a couple weeks ago. Not a typo.
