News Roundup: Trump’s Big Lie gets bigger; Derek Chauvin appeals conviction

In the news today: Donald Trump was back on the rally trail this weekend, delivering a steady stream of absurd and dangerous lies to an adoring (and gullible) Georgia crowd. He also really hates Republican Gov. Brian Kemp for not overthrowing democracy in the state last November to declare Trump the winner.

Elsewhere, former police officer Derek Chauvin has filed an expected appeal asking that his murder conviction be overturned. Chauvin was found guilty of killing George Floyd while detaining him by kneeling directly on Floyd’s neck until Floyd died.
