Donald Trump says the Supreme Court opinion unanimously restoring him to 2024 presidential primary ballots is a 鈥淏IG WIN" for America. The court Monday rejected state attempts to hold the Republican former president accountable for the Capitol riot. The justices ruled a day before the Super Tuesday primaries that states cannot invoke a post-Civil War constitutional provision to keep presidential candidates from appearing on ballots. The court wrote in an unsigned opinion that that power resides with Congress. The court鈥檚 move ends efforts in Colorado, Illinois, Maine and elsewhere to kick Trump off the ballot because of his attempts to undo his loss in the 2020 election to Democrat Joe Biden.

A U.S. Postal Service plan to downsize a regional mail hub in Reno and move package and letter processing to Sacramento, California, has officials in Nevada worried about delays and mail-in ballot handling. A bipartisan trio of Nevada congressional delegates are among those who say mail service would be snarled by the hours-long roundtrip drive over the Sierra Nevada. Secretary of State Francisco Aguilar says processing ballots in California before returning them over the snowy mountains to be counted in Nevada would 鈥渦nquestionably鈥 affect election results. A Postal Service spokesperson says plans aren't final but that Nevada mail still would be delivered within two days.

The former chief financial officer of Donald Trump鈥檚 company has pleaded guilty in New York to lying under oath during his testimony in the ex-president鈥檚 civil fraud case. Allen Weisselberg will not have to testify at Trump鈥檚 hush-money criminal trial as part of his plea Monday. The 76-year-old Weisselberg will be sentenced to five months in jail in his second stint behind bars after an unrelated tax fraud case. His plea to perjury is further evidence that he's willing to again spend a chunk of his golden years in jail rather than testify truthfully or flip on his old boss.

Two attorneys for then-President Donald Trump orchestrated a plan for fake electors to file paperwork falsely saying he won Wisconsin in a strategy to overturn Joe Biden鈥檚 2020 victory there. That鈥檚 according to a lawsuit settlement reached Monday that makes public months of texts and emails. Kenneth Chesebro and Jim Troupis turned over more than 1,400 pages of documents, emails, texts and other materials that offer a detailed account of the scheme鈥檚 origins in Wisconsin. The communications show how they, with coordination from Trump campaign officials, replicated the strategy in six other states including Georgia. The agreements settle a civil lawsuit brought by Democrats in 2022 against the two attorneys and 10 Republicans in Wisconsin who posed as fake electors.

The first over-the-counter birth control pill will be available in U.S. stores later this month. Manufacturer Perrigo said Monday that it has begun shipping the medication, called Opill, to major retailers and pharmacies. A one-month supply will cost about $20 and a three-month supply will cost around $50. The Food and Drug Administration last July said the once-a-day pill could be sold without a prescription. It will also be available online. The pill is a hormone-based contraceptive, similar to drugs used by millions of U.S. women for decades. Birth control pills are available without a prescription across much of South America, Asia and Africa.

Former President Donald Trump scored a clear win at the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, which unanimously ruled that states don鈥檛 have the ability to bar him 鈥 or any other federal candidates 鈥 from the ballot under a rarely-used constitutional provision that prohibits those who 鈥渆ngaged in insurrection鈥 from holding office. The decision shuts down a push in dozens of states to end Trump鈥檚 candidacy through a clause in the 14th Amendment, written to prevent former Confederates from serving in government after the Civil War. But it may open the door to further electoral uncertainty, exposing more state officials to disqualification under the provision and setting up a constitutional showdown should Trump win the election.
