Ex-AG William Barr Says He Won’t Back Trump if He Runs in 2024

By Allan Lengel

Ex-Attorney William Barr, out on media circuit promoting his new book “One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,” said Sunday that he won’t back his ex-boss Donald Trump if he runs in 2024.

During an interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” Barr said that Trump surrounded himself with yes men, and dealing with the president was like “wrestling an alligator.”

Emmett Till’s Family Calls for a Renewed Investigation of the Teen’s 1955 Lynching

Relatives and supporters of Emmett Till are calling on authorities to reopen the investigation of the Black teenager’s 1955 lynching. 

The Justice Department reopened the investigation in July 2018 after a central witness in the case, Carolyn Bryant Donham, changed her account of what happened.

She is now in her 80s, so time is running out to bring justice in the case, relatives said, The Associated Press reports.

“Time is not on our side,” Til’s cousin, Deborah Watts said during a news conference last week. 

Donham originally accused Till of grabbing her and asking her for a date. She later said she was not physically assaulted by the 14-year-old boy, who was abducted, tortured and killed.

About 250,000 people signed a petition asking for a renewed investigation.

A former Secret Service K-9 Officer known as “Hurricane” was awarded a Distinguished Service Medal for stopping an intruder who had scaled the White House fence in October 2014. 

The Belgian Malinois was seriously injured but still managed to keep the intruder on the ground until Secret Service agents arrested him. Another K-9, Jardan, was also seriously injured. 

“On every shift of every day, we at the Secret Service strive to uphold five core values; Duty, Honor, Loyalty, Justice, and Courage,” Uniformed Division Assistant Chief Michael Buck said during a recent Animals in War and Peace ceremony. “They are the five points of our agency’s star, and on a dark night in October 2014, they were embodied by a very good boy named Hurricane.”

Six other dogs were recognized during the ceremony, which was hosted by Angeles Without Wings, Inc./Animals in War and Peace, the Livingood Group LLC, and the U.S. War Dogs Association.
