Former President Trump continues to compare the death of Russian opposition leader Alexi Navalny to his own legal troubles. During a Fox News town hall in South Carolina, Trump said the death of Navalny was "a horrible thing" but claimed "it's happening in our country too." When asked about the civil fraud trial verdict ordering him to pay 355-million-dollars, Trump called it "a form of Navalny."        House Republicans are grilling President Biden's brother behind closed doors today. James Biden is testifying before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees as part of the impeachment inquiry into the president. GOP lawmakers claim the president improperly profited from his family's overseas business dealings while vice president in the Obama administration.        The trial of the armorer who worked on the set of the film "Rust" will start today in New Mexico. Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter after she loaded the gun that was fired by actor Alec Baldwin that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Jury selection will get underway today in Santa Fe after the judge denied to dismiss the charges.        Two men have been charged with murder for their alleged roles in the Kansas City Super Bowl parade shooting. Police identified who fired the bullet that killed the one deceased victim, Lisa Lopez-Galvan, but both men face the same charges. Twenty-two people were injured in the shooting.        The six day search for a missing Texas girl has come to a tragic end. The body of eleven-year-old Audrii Cunningham was found Tuesday in a river, not far from her suburban Houston home. The last person to see her alive was a family friend. Don McDougal lived behind the family's home and has been charged with capital murder.        Tonight's Powerball jackpot sits at 348-million-dollars.
