New court documents say a federal judge said investigators had strong evidence that former President Trump committed crimes in his classified documents case months before he was charged. Judge Beryl Howell cited the discovery of more classified documents found at his Mar-a-Lago home after the FBI searched the property in 2022. Howell said no excuse was given on how Trump could miss the classified mark documents in his own bedroom.       Some House lawmakers want the Pentagon to rehire military servicemembers fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine. The House Armed Services Committee Wednesday adopted the amendment to the annual defense policy bill. But it might not survive a meeting later this year with Senate counterparts when they have to iron out differences in the bill before Congress can pass it. Congress had the Defense Department repeal the pandemic-era mandate in 2023.       Widespread damage is being reported after storms roared across Central Texas Wednesday night. A mall in the town of Temple was damaged, along with some homes and businesses. A small plane was blown over at the Temple airport. Trees and powerlines were knocked down and widespread power outages were being reported.       Uvalde families are reaching a settlement with the city and county after a gunman killed 19 students and two teachers two-years ago in Texas. The families of 17 children killed and two students who survived will receive a city payout of two-million-dollars. The families say they are capping the money so Uvalde does not go into bankruptcy.        The Arizona Senate has passed the Secure the Border Act. Similar to Texas' SB 4, the act would give local, county, and state law enforcement the ability to arrest non-U.S. citizens entering Arizona from Mexico outside of the lawful ports of entry. It will now head to the Arizona House, where if it passes, it will be on the ballot in November's general election.       The Justice Department is planning to sue Live Nation over what it says are anti-competitive business practices. The entertainment company puts on concerts, sells tickets and owns venues. The lawsuit is expected to accuse the company of edging out competitors and driving up prices.
