It's filed another motion to convert the bankruptcy case to chapter seven, citing millions of dollars in fraudulent checks.Vista reiterates its charges of "check kiting" against the auto group, claiming it left Cista holding the bag for millions the day the auto group declared bankruptcy.

Brother of Jeff Bezos' girlfriend is suing the Amazon founder for defamation
Michael Sanchez filed suit in a California court claiming Bezos spread false stories about him providing nude photos of the billionaire to the National Enquirer. Those photos were never published. The Enquirer did publish a story last January about Bezos having an affair with former news anchor Lauren Sanchez. That story came out hours after Bezos and his wife announced they were getting divorced. Bezos then wrote an article on the website "Medium" claiming the Enquirer's publisher was trying to blackmail him with nude photos it claimed to have. Michael Sanchez admits to working with the Enquirer on its story. He says he was acting as his sister's manager, and trying to manage how she would be portrayed. Sanchez claims he never had nude pictures of Bezos. He also accuses Bezos of peddling rumors he was involved in a conservative conspiracy involving the Saudi government.
Senate prepares to vote on impeachment, Trump prepares for SOTU address tonight
New documents from former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation were released. The justice department handed more than 300 pages of notes to CNN. The documents contain notes from interviews with witnesses like Sean Spicer, Rick Gates, and Michael Cohen. This is the fifth time documents have been released to CNN and buzz-feed news as a part of a joint lawsuit against the DOJ. Included in the memos are notes from the FBI's interview with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. But those notes are mostly redacted, thus offering up very little new information.
Some of memos provided information on the Trump campaign's push to release stolen democratic emails ahead of the election. The president is set to give his State of the Union address tonight at 8 on FOX34. It will only be the second time in U.S. history when an impeached president will give the address. Bill Clinton did it in 1999.
