Here's the latest on the ongoing Hunter Biden trial, Iran's presidential candidates, and the Supreme Court's pending decisions on Trump's immunity and abortion rights.

In the Hunter Biden trial, the president's son's defense team attempted to portray him as a sympathetic figure by calling his daughter Naomi to testify. However, the strategy backfired as the prosecution presented old text messages that contradicted Naomi's testimony and made Hunter appear as an erratic father. The unexpected withdrawal of a witness, likely the president's brother Jimmy, further complicated matters for the defense team. The trial is expected to end next week, and it remains to be seen whether Hunter will take the stand.

Meanwhile, in Iran, the Guardian Council has approved six candidates for the upcoming presidential election, including the country's parliament speaker, Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, who is linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. However, the council barred former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from running yet again. The election is set to take place on June 28.

As the Supreme Court's term winds down, several high-profile cases remain undecided. The court is set to rule on former President Trump's wide-ranging claim to immunity from prosecution for acts committed while in office. The decision could have significant implications for Trump's two federal cases related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election and his handling of classified documents after leaving office. The court also faces a challenge to the abortion drug mifepristone, which could have major implications on access to medication abortion and broader ramifications on the FDA's regulatory authority.

Additionally, the Supreme Court must decide whether Idaho's strict state abortion ban overrides a federal law requiring hospitals to provide emergency care to patients. The ruling could have significant implications for states with near-total abortion bans that lack exemptions for the health of the patient. The court is also weighing a challenge to its own decades-old doctrine guiding how much latitude federal agencies enjoy while implementing the laws they are charged to enforce. A decision to overturn the Chevron deference doctrine could impact federal agencies' abilities to craft regulations in areas like the environment and health care.

Finally, the court will decide whether a law that bans people who are subject to domestic violence restraining orders from owning firearms violates the Second Amendment. In a second guns-related case, the court will decide whether the Trump administration erred in implementing a ban on bump stocks. The court's decisions on these cases could have far-reaching implications for gun rights and the power of the executive branch.
