Lemon, who was fired from CNN last year, already taped the interview and detailed its future in a lengthy statement. DON LEMON SPEAKS OUT ABOUT CNN FIRING, SAYS HE FEELS 'VINDICATED' AFTER EX-BOSS WAS OUSTED Ex-CNN anchor Don Lemon. (Photo by Paul Marotta/Getty Images)"Elon Musk has canceled the partnership I had with X, which they announced as part of their public commitment to amplifying more diverse voices on their platform. He informed me of his decision hours after an interview I conducted with him on Friday," Lemon wrote in a statement posted on social media. The interview that Lemon conducted with Musk will remain the premiere episode of "The Don Lemon Show" on March 18. "Elon publicly encouraged me to join X with a new show, saying I would have his ‘full support,’ and that his ‘digital town square is for all.’ He and his team pursued the deal in numerous conversations and made significant commitments about the support X would provide for the show. I made the decision to work with them in a unique partnership that I believed would ultimately assure that my work would be available to most people, in the largest possible venue. I took Elon and his management’s team’s word that they, for the first time, were interested in working directly with new and diverse voices," Lemon wrote. "There were no restrictions on the interview that he willingly agreed to, and my questions were respectful and wide-ranging, covering everything from SpaceX to the presidential election. We had a good conversation. Clearly he felt differently," Lemon continued. "His commitment to a global town square where all questions can be asked and all ideas can be shared seems not to include questions of him from people like me." ELON MUSK HITS BACK AT PRESS FOR 'ANTI-IMMIGRANT' LABEL: 'NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH' Elon Musk laughs while onstage during The New York Times Dealbook Summit 2023 at Jazz at Lincoln Center on November 29, 2023, in New York City. (Photo by Slaven Vlasic/Getty Images for The New York Times) (Getty Images)Lemon said his conversation with Musk will be available on YouTube, wherever podcasts are available and X. "This will be just the first of many episodes of ‘The Don Lemon Show.’ While Elon goes back on his word, I will be doubling down on my commitment to free speech and I cannot wait to get started," Lemon wrote. When reached for comment by Fox News Digital, an X spokesperson provided the following statement. "X is a platform that champions free speech, and we’re proud to provide an open environment for diverse voices and perspectives. The Don Lemon Show is welcome to publish its content on X, without censorship, as we believe in providing a platform for creators to scale their work and connect with new communities. However, like any enterprise, we reserve the right to make decisions about our business partnerships, and after careful consideration, X decided not to enter into a commercial partnership with the show," an X spokesperson wrote. DON LEMON BECAME ‘EMBARRASSING DISTRACTION’ FOR CNN, LOST NEWSROOM WITH ENDLESS ANTICS: INSIDERS Don Lemon was fired from CNN last year. (REUTERS/Andrew Kelly)Tech journalist Kara Swisher reported that Musk sent a "terse text" to Lemon's reps stating "Contract terminated." She gloated that she predicted that the partnership between Lemon and X wouldn't work out."I had told Don that this is exactly what would occur… despite promises by Musk and CEO Linda Yaccarino — who extravagantly touted this deal at CES to advertisers — that this time was different," she wrote on X.Lemon was fired from CNN last year by then-CNN CEO Chris Licht, who was shown the door himself weeks later. Lemon, who had been with CNN for 17 years, had been at the center of various scandals. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPFox News Digital’s Joseph A. Wulfsohn contributed to this report.

David Mixner, a longtime LGBTQ+ activist who was an adviser to Bill Clinton during his presidential campaign and later called him out over the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer personnel in the military, has died. He was 77.Mixner died Monday at his home in New York City, according to Annise Parker, president and CEO of the LGBTQ+ Victory Fund. Mixner had been in hospice for some time, Parker said. In 1991, Mixner was one of the founding members of the organization that recruits and supports LGBTQ+ political candidates."David was a courageous, resilient and unyielding force for social change at a time when our community faced widespread discrimination and an HIV/AIDS crisis ignored by the political class in Washington, DC," the Victory Fund said in a statement Monday. "In 1987, David joined one of the first HIV/AIDS protests outside the Reagan White House, where police wore latex gloves because of the stigma and misinformation around HIV/AIDS," and was arrested.Mixner believed that the LGBTQ+ community needed to be visibly and consistently involved in the political process and "dragged people along with him," said Parker, the former mayor of Houston, Texas. He was social and witty and had a big personality, she said, but added that it was his moral compass that people should remember the most: He was willing to speak up and stand up.PAUL ALEXANDER, POLIO SURVIVOR WHO SPENT OVER 70 YEARS IN IRON LUNG, DEAD AT 78"He got other people to be involved but he also held people accountable," Parker said. "When politicians didn’t make their commitments, he was willing to call them out on it."Mixner grew up in Elmer, New Jersey, according to the New Jersey Hall of Fame, which he was inducted into in 2021.Mixner’s father, Benjamin, was a farmer and his mother, Mary, was a homemaker and notary and later a bookkeeper for the local John Deere dealership, according to his niece, Lizzy Yates. His sister, Patsy Annison, died in 2018 and he is survived by his brother, Melvin Mixner, Yates said.He attended Arizona State University and the University of Maryland and later helped organize efforts to end the war in Vietnam and worked for political campaigns. He also wrote several books, including a memoir "Stranger Among Friends."In a statement, Mixner’s family said they were grieving the loss of a much loved brother and uncle, who at age 6 was convinced by his brother that he could fly and if he ran fast enough, he wouldn’t fall from the hayloft and break an arm. David Mixner is pictured at the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund’s (now LGBTQ+ Victory Fund’s) Oates-Shrum Leadership Awards in Washington. Mixner died Monday at his New York City home. (LGBTQ+ Victory Fund via AP)"He taught us to open our arms and our hearts. He taught us to stand up for those things and people who we hold dear," the statement read. "He taught us to try to at least try to fly because bones heal."Mixner, who was credited with raising millions of dollars for Clinton from gay and lesbian voters, angered the White House in 1993 by attacking then-U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga. In a speech, Mixner called Nunn, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, an "old-fashioned bigot" for opposing Clinton’s plan to lift the ban on gays in the military.When Clinton began to compromise with Congress and the Pentagon on the issue later that year, Mixner accused the White House of misleading gay leaders. He said Clinton "sacrificed the freedom of millions for your own political expediency." Days later, Mixner was among more than two dozen people arrested in front of the White House in a protest of Clinton’s retreat from his campaign pledge to lift the ban by executive order.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPNeil Giuliano, the former mayor of Tempe, Arizona, traveled to New York last month to visit with Mixner, whom he had known for decades, and they talked about politics and life and the afterlife."Facing death compels one to be totally bare and totally honest," he said.Giuliano described Mixner as an "activist with grace" who was influential with people at all levels."It’s not like he wasn’t angry, but he came forward with a way of talking about issues and with such grace and he presented in such a way that brought people in and didn’t keep people out," said Giuliano, who now serves on the LGBTQ+ Victory Fund’s board. "I think that’s why so many people were drawn to him."
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, sparred with CNN anchor Laura Coates on Tuesday over whether there was a "double standard" for President Biden after former Special Counsel Robert Hur's testimony before Congress that day.Hur testified that he chose not to bring charges against Biden after he "willfully retained classified materials" from when he was vice president because he "had to consider" the president’s "memory and overall mental state."Democrats painted Hur as partisan and accused him of trying to help former President Trump in the November election by targeting Biden's memory. CNN's Coates said she found Republicans' "fixation" on Biden's memory lapses "striking," as Democrats showed how Trump had also displayed memory lapses. She asked Jordan to "concede" that both Biden and Trump "have a similar issue."HUR HEARING DREW BIDEN AS ‘ENTITLED CAREER POLITICIAN’ AS REPORT SHOWED HIS MEMOIR WAS A ‘MOTIVE’: GOP REPS Congressman Jim Jordan pushed back against CNN anchor Laura Coates suggestions Biden faced a double standard on memory issues. (CNN/Screenshot)"Oh, come on. Come on. I mean, everyone makes mistakes in life," Jordan scoffed. He argued Biden's memory concerns were "obvious" to the public. "President Trump – he’s as sharp as they come, his memory is as strong – I was just with him over the weekend. I know – and the American people can see it for themselves. They’ve seen these examples of President Biden forgetting things," he argued."Look, I take no satisfaction in saying that. President Biden’s the president of our country. You want our president to have his full faculties, but he obviously doesn’t, and the country knows it, and it doesn’t matter how many times Democrats say something different, the country can see for themselves and they understand it, and that is something that Mr. Hur pointed out," Jordan continued. CNN HOST GETS IN HEATED EXCHANGE WITH GOP REP OVER TRUMP'S INDICTMENT: ‘JUST DOESN’T MAKE SENSE' Special Counsel Robert Hur testified to Congress about his investigation into President Joe Biden's classified documents scandal on Tuesday. (Getty Images)Coates again pushed back on Jordan's defense of Trump by referring to a montage Democrats played during the hearing of verbal gaffes and memory lapses from the former president."I wonder why, if the notion is that there is a double standard being placed on Donald Trump, isn‘t it true that there‘s also a double-standard then for President Biden with respect to his mistakes? Why should the American people credit one versus the other if both make similar mistakes that had been played in that actual hearing?" she asked.Jordan again laughed off the question."Laura, come on!" he retorted. "I mean, there were three people who have run for president the last three cycles – Secretary Clinton, President Biden, and President Trump – all three have been accused of mishandling classified information. Only one is getting prosecuted!" "Hillary Clinton took a hammer to cell phones, took BleachBit, to laptops and computers. I mean, you gotta be kidding me! The idea that there’s not a double standard and the Justice Department isn’t going after President Trump, I think is laughable to disagree with that. Anybody can see it," he continued.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP New poll found just over half of Americans feel President Biden received special treatment in his probe over mishandling classified documents. (Getty Images)The Republican argued that Democrats had spent years and millions of dollars targeting Trump in probes and impeachments. "Of course, there‘s a double standard and anybody with common sense can see it. And I think that‘s one of the key reasons why President Trump is ahead in every single poll and Joe Biden‘s approval numbers are at what, 35%," he said.More than half of Americans believe Biden received special treatment in the investigation, according to a new poll by Reuters and Ipsos
Published15 minutes agoShareclose panelShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Getty ImagesUS actress Olivia Munn has revealed she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and has had four operations in the past 10 months.Posting on Instagram, the 43-year-old Newsroom star said her surgeries had included a double mastectomy.Sharing a message alongside pictures and a video from hospital, Munn said she had "wanted to get through the hardest parts before sharing"."Surprisingly, I've only cried twice," she wrote. Munn's health update comes three days after she attended the Oscars with her husband, comedian John Mulaney. They share two-year-old son Malcolm. The actress, who has appeared in Magic Mike, Iron Man 2 and X-Men: Apocalypse, said she found out about the cancer after testing for 90 different cancer genes and going for a mammogram.Although those tests were negative, Munn said her doctor worked out her "breast cancer risk assessment score" - which later led to further tests including a biopsy, which showed "I had Luminal B cancer in both breasts". 'I'm lucky'She wrote: "Luminal B is an aggressive, fast moving cancer."Thirty days after that biopsy I had a double mastectomy. I went from feeling completely fine one day, to waking up in a hospital bed after a 10-hour surgery the next."I'm lucky," she added. "We caught it with enough time that I had options."Munn ended the post by praising Mulaney, her family and friends, as well as doctors, nurses and hospital staff."I'm so thankful to John for the nights he spent researching what every operation and medication meant and what side effects and recovery I could expect," she said."For being there before I went into each surgery and being there when I woke up, always placing framed photos of our little boy Malcolm so it would be the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes."Thank you to the friends who've had breast cancer and the friends who connected me to friends who've had breast cancer for guiding me through some of my most uncertain and overwhelming moments."More on this storyOlivia Munn 'lonely' after scene cutPublished10 September 2018

Published28 minutes agoShareclose panelShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Getty ImagesBy Bernd Debusmann JrBBC News, WashingtonChina has warned that a proposed ban on TikTok would "come back to bite" the US, as lawmakers approved a bill that could lead to the app being banned.The bill in the House of Representatives would force the Chinese-owned app to sever ties with China or become unavailable in the US. US officials have long expressed concern about TikTok, citing potential national security risks. TikTok's owners have repeatedly rejected that it poses any threat.On Wednesday, members of the US House of representatives passed a bill which would require the Chinese parent company of TikTok to sell its US operations.The bill - officially known as the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act - now heads to the Senate, where it is unclear if it has enough support to pass. If it does, the White House has said that President Joe Biden will sign it into law. Ahead of the vote, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin accused the US of "suppressing TikTok" despite the fact that it "never found evidence that TikTok threatens national security." "This kind of bullying behaviour that cannot win in fair competition disrupts companies' normal business activity, damages the confidence of international investors in the investment environment, and damages the normal international economic and trade order," Mr Wang added. "In the end, this will inevitably come back to bite the United States itself."The move was similarly pilloried by Chinese media, with several newspapers featuring satirical cartoons ridiculing the US effort to ban the app.Image source, Global TimesOne newspaper, the Global Times, accused the US of "ugly behaviour" and abusing "the concept of national security" to seize the app "by force". As is the case with other social media platforms, TikTok is banned in China. Users in the country use a similar app, Duoyin, which is only available in China and subject to monitoring and censorship by the government. What is TikTok and could the US ban it?'Confused' TikTokers deluge US lawmakers' phonesTikTok is owned by a Beijing-based, Cayman Islands-registered firm, Byte Dance. If the US bill becomes law, ByteDance would be required to sell TikTok within six months or face a ban from US app stores and web hosting platforms. Last week, TikTok distributed a message to many of its American users, calling on them to call their representatives to prevent the government from stripping "170 million Americans of their Constitutional right to free speech." This, in turn, prompted a letter from the House China Select Committee telling the company to stop "spreading false claims in its campaign to manipulate and mobilise American citizens on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party". TikTok has denied it has any links with China's government and said it has restructured the company to keep US data in the US. Former President Donald Trump unsuccessfully tried to ban the app in 2020.Mr Trump, who on Tuesday passed the delegate threshold to clinch the Republican nomination to become its presidential candidate, is now against the ban, saying it would unfairly benefit Facebook.

Ron DeSantis dispatched at least 140 state troopers and other resources, like drones and license plate readers, to Miami Beach and other popular beach towns in a pre-emptive strike against spring break-related crime, which officials are bracing for as St. Patrick's Day weekend approaches.The city is attempting to divorce itself from spring breakers after making 488 arrests, including 230 felonies – and two homicides – and seizing more than 105 firearms during last year's March madness. Miami Beach Commissioner David Suarez told Lawrence Jones of "Fox & Friends" that he and his fellow commissioners "proactively reached out to Gov. DeSantis and said ‘Hey, instead of coming on the last weekend when there are no shootings, there are no stampedes, we want to be proactive.’"MIAMI BEACH LAUNCHES 'BREAKING UP WITH SPRING BREAK' AD TO DISCOURAGE UNRULY TOURISTS Miami Beach City Commissioner David Suarez said that the community has seen a calmer season in light of a stricter approach to spring breakers. However, he said, this weekend has traditionally seen the "most bloodshed" in previous years, and will be a true test of whether the measures are really working. (Jeffrey Greenberg/Universal Images Group via Getty Images)Suarez said last year's calamity "completely ruined [the city's] brand as a city" and became a primary concern for voters in last year's November elections. As a result, Miami Beach elected more conservative-leaning Mayor Steven Meiner and ousted former Mayor Dan Gelber.  Spring break kicked off with a "successful" first week in Fort Lauderdale after Miami Beach's "breakup" with the annual March madness. (US Sun/Mega)Former FBI agent, Miami Beach resident and Fox News contributor Nicole Parker told Jones that it makes a "world of difference" that this year's new elected officials "back the blue" as the city battles spring break: "Who your mayor is and who your local leaders are make all the difference in the world how safe your city is," Parker said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning. "If you're in law enforcement and your local officials do not let you enforce the laws and your hands are tied, you can expect crime, you can expect violence, you can expect problems.""Frankly, I think a lot of people's jobs are on the line. They're like, 'If we have the same problems we've had the last several years, there will be a problem,'" she continued. "Everyone has stepped up to the line... and it's been beautiful… We love having guests in Miami Beach. We love having people come and enjoy the beautiful beaches we have here. But trashing the city and forcing residents to have to leave during spring break because they don't want to be here for it is unacceptable."  FLORIDA SPRING BREAK DRAWS MASSIVE CROWDS, BEACH BOXING MATCHES TO FORT LAUDERDALENonresident towing rates of over $500, DUI checkpoints, restricted beach access, bag checks, curfews and a targeted ad campaign are among measures the typically quiet city has taken to keep things that way this spring. "This year we got it right and we are being proactive," Suarez said. "The very first week we had FHP (Florida Highway Patrol), we had FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission), we had a Coast Guard… The reaction from our residents and voters have been 100 percent positive."FLORIDA SPRING BREAK HAS BEACH TOWNS BRACING FOR CROWDS AS MIAMI BEACH CRACKS DOWNJones said that although the response from most business owners in the city about the new measures had been positive, others were upset that a damper had been put on one of their busiest seasons of the year. "You know that's understandable – when people run a business they've got to make money and spring break is a hot time to make money," Parker said. "But frankly, as a former FBI agent and law enforcement officer, safety comes first and protecting the citizens comes first… There have been entirely too many shootings, too many deaths, and it has frankly ruined the brand of Miami Beach." Miami Beach police ask visitors to clear the streets at midnight for the city's spring break curfew on March 24, 2022. (Michael Ruiz/Fox News Digital)"I think that business owners, a lot of them actually welcome this because they know that the clientele coming in aren't going to trash their hotels, they're not going to trash their stores," Parker said. "When people feel safe, it's going to bring a different... group of individuals to celebrate spring break." CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP"Breaking up with spring break, it's worked and people are heading north," Parker said. "I hope nothing bad happens, but this weekend is going to be the true test I believe."

Munn shared photos along with details of her ongoing fight against breast cancer on her Instagram. She explained that she received a MRI after her doctor found her Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score to be 37%. The MRI found Luminal B cancer, "an aggressive, fast moving cancer," in both breasts."In February of 2023, in an effort to be proactive about my health, I took a genetic test that checks you for 90 different cancer genes," Munn wrote. "I tested negative for all, including BRCA (the most well-known breast cancer gene). My sister Sara had just tested negative as well. We called each other and high-fived over the phone. That same winter I also had a normal mammogram.""Two months later I was diagnosed with breast cancer."OLIVIA MUNN ON JOHN MULVANEY RELATIONSHIP CRITICISM: ‘ONLY WAY TO WIN’ IS ‘TO NOT PLAY THE GAME AT ALL’ Olivia Munn revealed she's been diagnosed with breast cancer. (Instagram: Olivia Munn)Munn revealed she's had four surgeries in the past 10 months after receiving her cancer diagnosis."Surprisingly, I've only cried twice," the TV personality admitted. "I guess I haven't felt like there was time to cry. My focus narrowed and I tabled any emotions that I felt would interfere with my ability to stay clearheaded."The actress decided to keep her diagnosis private in order to "get through some of the hardest parts" before sharing with her fans."I've tended to let people see me when I have the energy, when I can get dressed and get out of the house, when I can take my baby boy to the park," she explained. "I've kept the diagnosis and the worry and the recovery and the pain medicine and the paper gowns private."Munn made a public appearance alongside her partner John Mulaney at the 2024 Oscars on Sunday. She also attended the Governors Awards on Jan. 9 with the comedian.LIKE WHAT YOU’RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

The research gives clues to the origins of menopause, which is found in humans and a handful of marine mammals only.In evolutionary terms, stopping reproduction half-way through life is a biological puzzle.Most species reproduce until they die, seemingly maximising the chances of passing their genes on to the next generation.Dr Sam Ellis, from the University of Exeter, who led the research, said in some whale species evolution had selected for a longer female lifespan so mothers and grandmothers could continue to support their family long after the end of their own reproductive life."We see just the same patterns in human societies, where women have a reproductive period similar to that of our closest primate relatives but have a much longer total lifespan," he said.Orca mothers keep 5-tonne sons out of troubleKiller whale v shark: Solo orca eats great whiteOrcas 'learning from adults' to target boatsImage source, Getty ImagesThe findings, published in the journal Nature, are part of a decades-long effort to solve the long-standing evolutionary mystery.A team led by scientists at the University of Exeter compared the lifespans of 32 species of whales.They found females of five "menopausal" species - narwhals and beluga, short-finned pilot, false killer and killer whales - lived about four decades longer than other toothed whales.Image source, Getty ImagesThis allows them to spend more time with - thus boosting the survival of - their offspring and grand-offspring.And because they have no more offspring themselves, there are fewer mouths to feed.Image source, Getty ImagesOnly species such as the orca, or killer whale, that live in tightly knit family groups with complex social structures go through the menopause.Rebecca Seer, professor of population and health, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who was not involved in the study, said: "The whale study suggests that it is plausible that in humans, too, the same selective pressures meant that menopause evolved in order to produce helpful grandmothers and to reduce reproductive competition between generations."

And all I saw when they cut to all of the a-listers laughing, that is going to be a gallery of faces in his head every night like, ‘I must get vengeance!’ So, yes, it was brilliant. But, Jimmy, you may have doomed us to failure," Oswalt said. Behar chimed in and said Trump loves to "dish it out," but said he was "thin-skinned," and can't take a joke. JIMMY KIMMEL PONDERS, ‘ONCE TRUMP IS DEAD’ WILL ‘THINGS GET BETTER?’ Patton Oswalt joined the hosts of "The View" on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.  (Screenshot/ABC/TheView)Oswalt agreed with Behar that Trump is "thin-skinned.""If you want to dish it out, dish it out all you want as long as you can take it. He cannot. And so I’m wondering, again, yes, that was a great moment, but as they cut to all those faces, I'm like, oh, my God, that is going to become Donald’s dark motivational," he said. "His fuel."Behar revealed on Tuesday that she tried to email Kimmel and congratulate him on his Trump joke, but accidentally sent the email to Jimmy Fallon. Trump posted a criticism of Kimmel and his Oscar's performance on his social media platform Truth Social that questioned if there "has there ever been a worse host than Jimmy Kimmel at The Oscars." Kimmel said he received a "review," and read the social media post aloud during the Hollywood awards show. JIMMY KIMMEL WAS REPORTEDLY TOLD NOT TO READ DONALD TRUMP'S TRUTH SOCIAL POST DURING OSCARS BUT DID ANYWAY Host Jimmy Kimmel speaks onstage during the 96th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on March 10, 2024 in Hollywood, California. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images) ((Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images))Kimmel was reportedly told not to read the post on the air, but did so anyway. "They are like, you got a little bit of time," Kimmel told Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos on "Live with Kelly & Mark" Monday. "I’m like, ‘I’m reading the Trump tweet.' They’re like, ‘No, no, don’t read that.' I’m like, ‘Yes I am.'" CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP"His opening was that of a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be," Kimmel said, reading Trump's post aloud on Sunday. "Get rid of Kimmel and perhaps replace him with another washed up, but cheap, ABC ‘talent,’ George Slopanopoulos. He would make everybody on stage look bigger, stronger, and more glamorous. Blah. Blah. Blah. Make America Great Again."Fox News' Kendall Tietz contributed to this report.
Published1 minute agoShareclose panelShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Getty ImagesBy Max MatzaBBC NewsThe judge overseeing an election interference case against Donald Trump in Georgia has thrown out some criminal charges, but left most in place.Judge Scott McAfee found six counts in the 41-count indictment against Mr Trump and some of his co-defendants, including Rudy Giuliani, lacked detail.But he said the charges can still be refiled at a later date.Mr Trump was among 19 people charged with a conspiracy to overturn the state's 2020 election results."The lack of detail concerning an essential legal element is, in the undersigned's opinion, fatal," Judge McAfee wrote in his order on Wednesday.He said the charges do not provide the accused with enough information to prepare their legal defences "intelligently", adding that "this does not mean the entire indictment is dismissed".The ruling affects three of the 13 charges against Mr Trump. They relate to a call Mr Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he told him: "All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have."The other dismissed charges apply to some of his most prominent co-defendants: Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman and Mark Meadows.This video can not be playedTo play this video you need to enable JavaScript in your browser.In his order, Judge McAfee said the charges "contain all the essential elements of the crimes but fail to allege sufficient detail regarding the nature of their commission, i.e., the underlying felony solicited".It comes as a win for Mr Trump and his co-defendants, who had filed to dismiss the charge. Prosecutors could now choose to refile the charges with more information in their allegation, or let the ruling stand and focus on the other charges. The group had initially faced 41 total charges. The former president is facing up to 20 years in prison in Georgia if convicted of the most severe charge of racketeering.Mr Trump, who is running for president against Joe Biden in November, has slammed the case as politically motivated. The Georgia ruling does not address the defence's effort to dismiss Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over ethics claims that she had an improper relationship with a lawyer she hired to work on the case. A ruling on the ethics complaint is expected to come soon.
