Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Miami federal court to a 37-count indictment. The indictment accuses him of deliberately keeping government documents at his Palm Beach estate that contained highly sensitive defense, weapons, and nuclear information. It also accuses him of obstructing efforts by U.S. authorities to reclaim those documents. This historic case marks the first federal prosecution of a former president and could potentially be a hurdle in Trump's quest for the presidency in the 2024 election. Trump's attorney, Todd Blanche, entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf.

This is the second criminal case that Trump is facing as he seeks to reclaim the White House in 2024.

Renowned novelist Cormac McCarthy has passed away at the age of 89. Known for his dense and brittle prose, McCarthy's novels took readers from the southern Appalachians to the desert Southwest. Works such as "The Road," "Blood Meridian," and "All the Pretty Horses" earned him a Pulitzer Prize. McCarthy's writing style was often compared to that of William Faulkner, characterized by its Old Testament themes and rural settings. His stories depicted bleak and violent worlds where the past overwhelmed the present. Through his characters, McCarthy explored the futility of dreams and the tragic nature of falling in love.
