The news cycle never lets up and there was plenty to report on this week that’s pertinent to Christians.  Here’s a sample of what Jim had to offer:

–During a bombshell House Oversight hearing Wednesday, Joseph Ziegler, IRS Special Agent with the Criminal Investigation Division, came through with some stunning claims.  He “blew the whistle” on political misconduct throughout the entirety of the Hunter Biden investigation, claiming that the president’s son should have been charged with a tax felony.   

–According to House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, the Biden family allegedly set up over 20 shell companies in an effort to launder millions of dollars paid by foreign entities.    

–Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley released the FD-1023 document that the House Oversight had been citing on Thursday as evidence pointing to Joe Biden being involved in a bribery scheme with Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky.

–House Committee Chair Jim Jordan has threatened to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress over the bureau’s failure to comply with subpoenas regarding the panel’s investigation into the weaponization of the IRS.

–Former President Trump said Tuesday that he has received notice from Special Counsel Jack Smith.  He’s a target in the criminal investigation efforts to  overturn results of the 2020 election.

–Representative Mat Gaetz of Florida is hoping to “short circuit” the Special Counsel that’s bringing the second federal indictment against former President Trump by pulling the plug on the funding of the Special Counsel.

–A federal judge set the official date for the classified documents case against former President Trump. The trial will begin May 20th, 2024.

–Representative Greg Steube of Florida and Ralph Norman of South Carolina say the idea of potentially impeaching President Biden is gaining momentum.

–Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake filed an appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court in her election case.  On page 2 her legal team alleges that at least 8,000 ballots were unreadable and not “duplicated or counted.”

–Multiple errors took place during the audit of Fulton County’s 2020 presidential election according to a consent order approved by the Georgia State Election Board.

–Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced forgery charges Tuesday against 16 alternate electors for President Trump in 2020, despite existing precedent by Democrats in using alternate electors.

–Congressman Tim Burchett of Tennessee told Newsmax Monday that the Secret Service destroyed the bag containing cocaine at the White House and does not have enough DNA evidence to identify who may have left it there.

–The nation of Ethiopia has announced it will make the transition to mandatory digital I.D.’s for all citizens with a chief enforcement tool being the major banks. 

–Two weeks from now the Daily Signal’s chief news correspondent, Fred Lucas, is going to be losing his White House press credentials.  It’s perhaps the most brazen attack to limit media access to what President Biden normally calls, “the People’s House.”

–For weeks, Governor DeSantis has been campaigning on an overhaul of the U.S. military, pledging to “rip the woke” out.
