Good Morning DC! It's only Wednesday, but President Biden's schedule for today is wide open. Apart from the President’s Daily Brief at 9:50 AM, there's nothing else listed on the to-do list. 

Biden confirmed that he would be meeting Putin in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 16. They will discuss the future of the US-Russian relationship, problems of strategic stability, and topical issues on the international agenda, including interaction in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts. 

Marjorie Taylor Greene is out of control. In a series of Twitter posts, she attacked private businesses for their decision to keep a mask mandate following the CDC guidelines. “Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazis forced Jewish people to wear a gold star,” she tweeted.   McCarthy and Mitch McConnel have publicly condemned her comments. 

Trump is facing a possibility of an indictment. Last night, we learned that CY Vance, the prosecutor involved in a criminal probe against Donald Trump, has convened a grand jury. After looking into the evidence, the jury will decide whether or not to indict Trump on criminal charges. 

Trump reacted to the news by calling it a political witch hunt.

"It began the day I came down the escalator in Trump Tower, and it’s never stopped," Trump said. "They wasted two years and $48 million in taxpayer dollars on Mueller and Russia Russia Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and it continues to this day, with illegally leaked confidential information. "

D.C. filed an anti-trust lawsuit against Amazon, accusing the e-commerce giant of price-fixing. “We filed this antitrust lawsuit to put an end to Amazon’s illegal control of prices across the online retail market,” DC Attorney General Karl Racine.

Since George Floyd’s death, police violence has not waned. His family members joined President Biden and Vice President Harris at the White House yesterday to grieve and discuss police reform.

Across the pond, Dominic Cummings, the PM's former advisor, said this morning that a political system where people have to choose between Corbyn and Johnson is "terribly wrong" and creates a "lions led by donkeys" situation. His testimony is a perfect example of a disgruntled employee who was willing to be part of what he now criticizes as long as he was in power to do whatever he wanted.

And that's a wrap for this Wednesday morning, May 26, 2021. Thanks for waking up with me. Good Morning DC will be back tomorrow to bring you the latest first.
