    Mystery Assassin, Iran’s Plot Against Trump, & Menendez Convicted

    In this episode of The President's Daily Brief:

    In this episode of The President's Daily Brief:
    With the nation still reeling from Saturday’s attempted assassination of President Trump, we take a closer look at the would-be assassin, 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks, who remains a mystery.

    A bombshell report is claiming the Secret Service boosted security for former President Donald Trump in recent weeks after learning about a suspected Iranian plot to assassinate him.

    After three days of deliberation, a jury has found New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez guilty of all charges in his federal corruption case. We have the details on that.

    And in today’s Back of the Brief, despite a few days of respite, it appears Democrats are once again pushing President Joe Biden to step aside as their party’s presidential nominee.
