Donald Trump marshalled enough Republican votes in the Senate to consider a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election on November 3rd. Ms Ginsburg’s death gives the party a window to fill her seat on the Supreme Court with a conservative, further tipping its ideological balance to the right. Ms Ginsburg, appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993, was accorded the honour of lying in state in the Capitol building, the first woman to do so.
特朗普在参议院获得了足够多的共和党选票，可以在11月3日大选前考虑接替鲁斯·巴德·金斯伯格(Ruth Bader Ginsburg)的人选 。金斯伯格的去世为共和党提供了一个窗口，让保守派人士填补她在最高法院的席位，进一步将共和党的意识形态平衡向右倾斜 。1993年由比尔·克林顿任命的金斯伯格女士被授予在国会大厦安放遗体的荣誉，她是第一位获此荣誉的女性 。
A grand jury found no evidence to bring charges against three policemen for the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, a black woman, in Kentucky. Around midnight on March 13th police burst into Taylor’s flat without knocking to search for drugs. Her boyfriend, who later said he feared it was her ex-boyfriend breaking in, opened fire. The officers shot back, killing Taylor. No drugs were found. One officer, who fired through blinds, was charged with wantonly endangering the neighbours. After the decision, protests erupted and two officers were shot.

Peru’s president, Martín Vizcarra, survived a congressional vote to impeach him.

秘鲁总统马丁·比斯卡拉(Martin Vizcarra)从国会的弹劾投票中成功脱身 。反对派政客要求他下台的原因是，他们声称，泄露的录音证明他曾试图掩盖与一位名为“Richard Swing”的民谣歌手的关系，后者曾支持过他，后来又获得了政府的合同 。
