A Mississippi grand jury has declined to indict the women whose accusation set off the lynching of Emmett Till. Most likely known as the case that shocked the nation and sparked the civil rights movement, this case is officially being closed after over 70 years of investigation. Just shy of last week, Leflore County grand jury determined there was insufficient evidence to indict Carolyn Bryant Donham on charges of kidnapping and manslaughter after hearing seven hours of testimony from investigators and witnesses, says Dewyyane Richardson, the Leflore County District Attorney.

The former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, Marc Short, confirmed Monday that he officially testified last week in front of a grand jury investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol in Washington, DC.
“I can confirm that I did receive a subpoena for the federal grand jury, and I complied with that subpoena,” Short told CNN’s Erin Burnett on ‘OutFront.’ “But under the advice of counsel, I really can’t say much more than that.
Former Trump White House adviser, Peter Navarro, claimed Monday that he received a subpoena from the Justice Department to testify before a federal grand jury later this week and turn over documents related to the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.
