In the UK, Harry Dunn’s parents have lost their high court battle against the British government over whether their son’s alleged American killer Anne Sacoolas had US diplomatic immunity at the time of his death.
Dunn, 19, was killed when his motorbike crashed into a car being driven on the wrong side of the road by Sacoolas outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August last year.

Talking of the president’s legal team and their poll disputes, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis was given an absolutely torrid time on MSNBC last night by host Ari Melber. She continued to push the baseless claim that the election was “stolen” and that “president Trump won by a landslide”, even as the interview took place just after the General Services Administration declared president-elect Joe Biden the apparent winner.
In particular, Melber put up a slide showing that the largest ever recount reversal recorded in the US amounted to a change of just 355 votes, while the Trump team are trying to overturn margins of around 12,000 in Georgia, 80,000 in Pennsylvania and 150,000 in Michigan.
The point of course is to get to fair and accurate results. The election was stolen and president Trump won by a landslide. And how you are mischaracterizing this, I think your viewers need to understand the truth.
