President Trump says he would like to delay the G7 summit until after the election. And he'd definitely invite the leader of Russia. Trump made the comments after he once again slammed voting by mail during his coronavirus update. He added no one wants a rigged election.       Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says the coronavirus has taken a staggering toll on the U.S. and shows no sign of letting up. He added Congress must be aggressive in dealing with the impacts. He calls President Trump's latest executive orders weak and pathetic.        Lawyers for President Trump are firing back at a New York district attorney. They say he's fishing for ways to justify harassing Trump in a court battle over his tax returns. They want to stop the DA from trying to get Trump's challenge to a subpoena thrown out.        The public is finally seeing the struggle that led to George Floyd's death in Minneapolis. Footage from two police body cameras shows Floyd trying to be pushed into a squad car but then falling out. He's heard saying "thank you" before one cop puts him in a knee restraint.       The executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union is calling for Homeland Security to be dismantled. Anthony Romero made his case in an op-ed in USA Today. He argued DHS has too much power and what happened in Portland this summer proves that.       The alleged host of a house party in New Jersey yesterday is behind bars. Cops say some 300 people attended and most were compliant when they tried to break up the party. But the host, who was apparently charging admission, was taken into custody.
