We’re covering Donald Trump’s indictment and an American journalist’s arrest in Russia.

He became the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges. The development will shake up the 2024 presidential race, in which Trump is a candidate.

By then, prosecutors working for the district attorney, Alvin Bragg, will have asked Trump to surrender and to face arraignment. While the specific charges remain unknown for now, prosecutors have focused on a $130,000 payment made to a porn actress who claimed to have had an affair with Trump. Michael Cohen, Trump’s fixer at the time, made the payment during the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign. The Trump Organization’s internal records falsely identified the reimbursements made to Cohen as legal expenses. Trump has consistently denied all wrongdoing and attacked Bragg, a Democrat, accusing him of leading a politically motivated prosecution. [A conviction is not a sure thing.](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4QEAWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tL2FydGljbGUvdHJ1bXAtcG90ZW50aWFsLWluZGljdG1lbnQtY3JpbWluYWwtY2hhcmdlcy5odG1sP2NhbXBhaWduX2lkPTcmZW1jPWVkaXRfbWJhZV8yMDIzMDMzMSZpbnN0YW5jZV9pZD04OTAzOSZubD1tb3JuaW5nLWJyaWVmaW5nJTNBLWFzaWEtcGFjaWZpYy1lZGl0aW9uJnJlZ2lfaWQ9Nzc2NzQ5NTImc2VnbWVudF9pZD0xMjkxODUmdGU9MSZ1c2VyX2lkPWFhNDkxZWY3ZjFkOTY0ZTQ5NzlmYjc4NGU3NGUwMWQ3VwNueXRCCmQhhAMmZOL5csJSG3RyaXN0cmFtYmFsZHdpbjkwQGdtYWlsLmNvbVgEAAAAAA~~) U.S. elections: The indictment could throw the race for the Republican nomination — which Trump leads in most polls — into uncharted territory. Whether an indictment would rally Republican voters to Trump’s side or erode his standing among them is uncertain. It is possible that Trump’s legal problems [will lead voters to seek out an alternative.](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4QGAWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tLzIwMjMvMDMvMjcvdXMvcG9saXRpY3MvdHJ1bXAtaW5kaWN0bWVudC0yMDI0LWVsZWN0aW9uLmh0bWw_Y2FtcGFpZ25faWQ9NyZlbWM9ZWRpdF9tYmFlXzIwMjMwMzMxJmluc3RhbmNlX2lkPTg5MDM5Jm5sPW1vcm5pbmctYnJpZWZpbmclM0EtYXNpYS1wYWNpZmljLWVkaXRpb24mcmVnaV9pZD03NzY3NDk1MiZzZWdtZW50X2lkPTEyOTE4NSZ0ZT0xJnVzZXJfaWQ9YWE0OTFlZjdmMWQ5NjRlNDk3OWZiNzg0ZTc0ZTAxZDdXA255dEIKZCGEAyZk4vlywlIbdHJpc3RyYW1iYWxkd2luOTBAZ21haWwuY29tWAQAAAAA) A volatile new phase: Trump has for decades avoided criminal charges despite persistent scrutiny and repeated investigations, creating an aura of legal invincibility that the indictment now threatens to puncture. His actions surrounding his 2020 electoral defeat are the focus of a separate federal investigation. The Wall Street Journal correspondent Evan Gershkovich in a photograph dated July 2021.

He is accused of espionage. The arrest is a new escalation in Russian tensions with foreign media organizations since the start of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. Gershkovich, 31, is believed to be the first American reporter to be held as an accused spy in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Wall Street Journal vehemently denied Russia’s accusations and said in a statement that it was concerned for Gershkovich’s safety. The Biden administration condemned the detention. “The targeting of American citizens by the Russian government is unacceptable,” the White House press secretary said in a statement. Dmitri Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, confirmed the arrest. “We’re not talking about suspicions,” he said, adding, “He was caught red-handed.” A swap? In some past espionage cases, Russia has detained foreigners to instigate prisoner exchanges with the West. Gershkovich faces up to 20 years in prison under Russia’s criminal code. Acquittals in espionage cases are virtually unheard-of. Analysis: With Gershkovich’s arrest, President Vladimir Putin signaled to the world that he was doubling down on Russia’s wartime isolation, [our Moscow bureau chief writes.](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4QIAWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tLzIwMjMvMDMvMzAvd29ybGQvZXVyb3BlL3J1c3NpYS1wdXRpbi1nZXJzaGtvdmljaC1hcnJlc3QuaHRtbD9jYW1wYWlnbl9pZD03JmVtYz1lZGl0X21iYWVfMjAyMzAzMzEmaW5zdGFuY2VfaWQ9ODkwMzkmbmw9bW9ybmluZy1icmllZmluZyUzQS1hc2lhLXBhY2lmaWMtZWRpdGlvbiZyZWdpX2lkPTc3Njc0OTUyJnNlZ21lbnRfaWQ9MTI5MTg1JnRlPTEmdXNlcl9pZD1hYTQ5MWVmN2YxZDk2NGU0OTc5ZmI3ODRlNzRlMDFkN1cDbnl0QgpkIYQDJmTi-XLCUht0cmlzdHJhbWJhbGR3aW45MEBnbWFpbC5jb21YBAAAAAA~) Other developments from the war in Ukraine: - Ukrainian commanders [believe they have turned the tide](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP0T_aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cubnl0aW1lcy5jb20vMjAyMy8wMy8zMC93b3JsZC9ldXJvcGUvdWtyYWluZS1iYWtobXV0LXJ1c3NpYS5odG1sP2NhbXBhaWduX2lkPTcmZW1jPWVkaXRfbWJhZV8yMDIzMDMzMSZpbnN0YW5jZV9pZD04OTAzOSZubD1tb3JuaW5nLWJyaWVmaW5nJTNBLWFzaWEtcGFjaWZpYy1lZGl0aW9uJnJlZ2lfaWQ9Nzc2NzQ5NTImc2VnbWVudF9pZD0xMjkxODUmdGU9MSZ1c2VyX2lkPWFhNDkxZWY3ZjFkOTY0ZTQ5NzlmYjc4NGU3NGUwMWQ3VwNueXRCCmQhhAMmZOL5csJSG3RyaXN0cmFtYmFsZHdpbjkwQGdtYWlsLmNvbVgEAAAAAA~~) against Russian efforts to capture Bakhmut, the city that has been at the center of fighting in the east. - Turkey [ratified](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4Q4AWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tL2xpdmUvMjAyMy8wMy8zMC93b3JsZC9ydXNzaWEtdWtyYWluZS1uZXdzL2ZpbmxhbmRzLWxhc3Qtc3RlcHMtdG8tam9pbi1uYXRvLWFyZS1qdXN0LXBhcGVyd29yaz9jYW1wYWlnbl9pZD03JmVtYz1lZGl0X21iYWVfMjAyMzAzMzEmaW5zdGFuY2VfaWQ9ODkwMzkmbmw9bW9ybmluZy1icmllZmluZyUzQS1hc2lhLXBhY2lmaWMtZWRpdGlvbiZyZWdpX2lkPTc3Njc0OTUyJnNlZ21lbnRfaWQ9MTI5MTg1JnNtaWQ9dXJsLXNoYXJlJnRlPTEmdXNlcl9pZD1hYTQ5MWVmN2YxZDk2NGU0OTc5ZmI3ODRlNzRlMDFkN1cDbnl0QgpkIYQDJmTi-XLCUht0cmlzdHJhbWJhbGR3aW45MEBnbWFpbC5jb21YBAAAAAA~) Finland’s bid to join NATO, removing the Nordic nation’s last obstacle toward membership and [sharply enlarging NATO’s border with Russia.](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4RKAWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tL2xpdmUvMjAyMy8wMy8zMC93b3JsZC9ydXNzaWEtdWtyYWluZS1uZXdzL3R1cmtleXMtcGFybGlhbWVudC1pcy1zZXQtdG8tdm90ZS1vbi1maW5sYW5kcy1uYXRvLWJpZC1hLWZpbmFsLWh1cmRsZT9jYW1wYWlnbl9pZD03JmVtYz1lZGl0X21iYWVfMjAyMzAzMzEmaW5zdGFuY2VfaWQ9ODkwMzkmbmw9bW9ybmluZy1icmllZmluZyUzQS1hc2lhLXBhY2lmaWMtZWRpdGlvbiZyZWdpX2lkPTc3Njc0OTUyJnNlZ21lbnRfaWQ9MTI5MTg1JnNtaWQ9dXJsLXNoYXJlJnRlPTEmdXNlcl9pZD1hYTQ5MWVmN2YxZDk2NGU0OTc5ZmI3ODRlNzRlMDFkN1cDbnl0QgpkIYQDJmTi-XLCUht0cmlzdHJhbWJhbGR3aW45MEBnbWFpbC5jb21YBAAAAAA~) - Satellite images show [how Ukraine became darker](~/AAAAAQA~/RgRmCIiEP4QDAWh0dHBzOi8vd3d3Lm55dGltZXMuY29tLzIwMjMvMDMvMzAvd29ybGQvZXVyb3BlL3VrcmFpbmUtc2F0ZWxsaXRlLWRhcmtuZXNzLmh0bWw_Y2FtcGFpZ25faWQ9NyZlbWM9ZWRpdF9tYmFlXzIwMjMwMzMxJmluc3RhbmNlX2lkPTg5MDM5Jm5sPW1vcm5pbmctYnJpZWZpbmclM0EtYXNpYS1wYWNpZmljLWVkaXRpb24mcmVnaV9pZD03NzY3NDk1MiZzZWdtZW50X2lkPTEyOTE4NSZ0ZT0xJnVzZXJfaWQ9YWE0OTFlZjdmMWQ5NjRlNDk3OWZiNzg0ZTc0ZTAxZDdXA255dEIKZCGEAyZk4vlywlIbdHJpc3RyYW1iYWxkd2luOTBAZ21haWwuY29tWAQAAAAA) over months of Russian attacks on its infrastructure.

From China to the U.S.: Guo rose from poverty to control a nationwide property empire. A crackdown on corruption in China pushed him to flee to the U.S. in 2015, where he found allies — and devoted followers — by forcefully criticizing the Chinese Communist Party.

Downfall: It all began to unravel as allegations of fraud piled up. Victims complained and, increasingly, sued. Guo’s supporters coordinated harassment campaigns targeting his critics, including the Chinese human rights activist Teng Biao. A U.S. regulatory authority filed civil suits against three companies tied to Guo, accusing them of conducting unlawful securities offerings. Now, if convicted on fraud charges, Guo could face decades in prison.

Flesch reading score measures how complex a text is. The lower the score, the more difficult the text is to read. The Flesch readability score uses the average length of your sentences (measured by the number of words) and the average number of syllables per word in an equation to calculate the reading ease. Text with a very high Flesch reading ease score (about 100) is straightforward and easy to read, with short sentences and no words of more than two syllables. Usually, a reading ease score of 60-70 is considered acceptable/normal for web copy.
