7 Things: Trump could be barred from Colorado ballot; Tuberville says Trump rhetoric on immigration doesn’t go far enough; and more …

7. The class action sex abuse case by an Alabama victim of sexual abuse when she was 16 has been approved by a judge against the porn site PornHub, which hosted videos of the assault. Anyone who had videos or photos posted on that site from February 2011 until yesterday from when they were underage can join the lawsuit.

6. Lots of people are probably worried about what is about to happen when documents that could identify up to 180 people connected to late sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. The list will include associates, investigators, and victims (those names will likely be redacted).

5. The last 11 officers from the hold placed by U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) in response to the Pentagon’s questionably legal abortion travel policy have been confirmed. This brings the official end to the blockade without any relief on the issue Tuberville sought to fix.

4. U.S. Steel’s sale to a Japanese company is worrying many in Washington about the national security impact of such a deal. Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) and other Senators warned that Mexican steel flooding the U.S. market is causing problems as well, “The administration must do more to protect America’s steel industry and prevent the further loss of good-paying American jobs. Failure to conclude an export monitoring agreement due to the unwillingness or inability of the Mexican government is unacceptable. We urge the administration to set a clear deadline for the implementation of an export monitoring agreement.”

3. Decatur City Councilman Hunter Pepper has drawn the ire of the media and many in the “community” because he is accurately pointing out that the protestors who have been harassing the city of Decatur businesses, and even the mayor’s neighbors are demanding things that can not be given. Sources tell Yellowhammer News, that the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is finished with the investigation into the police shooting of Stephen Perkins and the shooting was justified but the evidence will be presented to a grand jury.

2. As a record number of illegal immigrants break through the southern U.S. border,  Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) has some thoughts on the matter. Tuberville said former President Donald Trump’s comments about “poisoning the blood” do not go far enough as the media pretends they are upset that Trump is “echoing” Hitler and that he has never read Hitler’s “Mein Kampf.”

1. Colorado has officially barred former President Donald Trump from the ballot for a crime he did not commit and has not been charged or convicted of. It is now officially true, Trump is a victim of political persecution.
