Speaking to ABC News yesterday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland discussed the “same kind of hatred” that was behind the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 and the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995: racism and white supremacy.

Digital files of evidence from the North Birmingham Bribery Trial show that the federal government appears to have been given the manipulated Balch & Bingham invoice, not the original addressed to Blake Andrews.
