Pulse nightclub shooting, Stanley Cup Final, O.J. Simpson : 5 things to know Wednesday  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

Three years ago, several hundred people packed the Pulse nightclub in downtown Orlando for drinks, music and fun but instead became victims of the single worst attack on the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history. On Wednesday, community leaders, activists and others will gather in Orlando — and in Brevard — to remember the people massacred at Pulse by a heavily-armed man who stormed the nightspot.Forty-nine people were killed and another 53 were injured during the shooting, which took place during Pride Month, a time when LGBT communities worldwide mark the Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan in 1969 and celebrates the community.  These are the victims and their stories.

The House Oversight Committee is set to vote Wednesday on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failing to provide documents on the administration's addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. Critics say including the question would lead to undercounting of immigrants and minorities, affecting the makeup of Congress. The vote comes a day after the House approved a plan to make it easier for committees to go to court to enforce demands for documents and testimony in their investigations of President Donald Trump's administration. Last month, the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Barr in contempt for refusing to turn over an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report.

It seemed like an inevitable conclusion to this series — and the NHL season: a Game 7 to decide the Stanley Cup winner. The Boston Bruins will host the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night (8 p.m. ET, NBC) in the league’s first Cup Final Game 7 since 2011. The Blues, who are seeking their first Stanley Cup and were last in the league in points on Jan. 2, have already (accidentally) been anointed champions by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. And one Blues fan can win $100,000 on a bet he placed when St. Louis was a 250-1 longshot at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel Sportsbook. If the Bruins win, it would be Boston's third major sports championship since October and the first time since the 1930s that one city/metro area would hold the Major League Baseball, NFL and NHL titles at the same time.  But who will win it all? USA TODAY Sports’ NHL staff make their Game 7 picks.

Donald Trump Jr. is expected to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday after the panel subpoenaed him last month. The move comes after Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., believed the subpoena from the GOP-led panel was based on testimony from President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen, who is now serving a three-year sentence in federal prison for lying to Congress, among other charges.  Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, a Republican, has taken heat from some members of his party for the committee’s decision to issue the subpoena. President Trump has previously said that he was surprised by the move from lawmakers, adding: "My son’s a very good person. My son was totally exonerated." 

Wednesday marks the 25th anniversary of the killings of ex-NFL star and actor O.J. Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. The grisly murders eventually led to "Trial of the Century" that saw Simpson get acquitted of killing the pair in October 1995. Simpson told the Associated Press he is healthy and happy living in Las Vegas and neither he nor his children want to look back at June 12, 1994. "We don't need to go back and relive the worst day of our lives," Simpson said. "My family and I have moved on to what we call the 'no negative zone.'"  Not everyone has decided to move on, however. To coincide with the anniversary Kim Goldman, the younger sister of Ron Goldman, will on Wednesday launch a 10-week podcast, "Confronting: O.J. Simpson," during which she'll interview people from her brother's life and people who were involved in the case and the Simpson trial.
