Digest

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty on all three felony counts for lying about his drug use on a gun application in 2018. The jury, initially split 6-6 on whether to convict, ultimately reached a unanimous decision after deliberating for three hours. Two jurors revealed that the key evidence was Hunter Biden's own text message sent the day after he bought the gun, indicating he was still using drugs. President Biden issued a statement saying he loves his son and is proud of the man he is today, while also acknowledging the verdict and respecting the judicial process. Hunter Biden faces a maximum of 25 years in prison, though experts say he is unlikely to receive anything close to that. Meanwhile, eight migrants who entered the US illegally across the Mexico border have been detained with suspected ties to ISIS. The individuals, from Tajikistan, were vetted upon entry but authorities later uncovered information raising suspicions about possible affiliations with ISIS. They are now likely to be deported. In other news, secret recordings of Supreme Court justices Samuel Alito and John Roberts, as well as Justice Alito's wife, have been released. The recordings, made by liberal filmmaker Lauren Windsor, reveal comments from the justices about the political divide in the country and the role of religion in American society. Windsor defended her tactics, saying she felt it was the only way to get information from the justices. The Supreme Court has yet to respond to the recordings. The storms and flash flood threat in Florida continue, with up to 20 inches of rain expected in parts of South Florida. The heat is also spreading across the country, with possible record highs in the northeast by late week. In Atlanta, a rush hour bus hijacking turned deadly, with at least one man found dead on the bus and another in custody.
