Today is December 10. Below are some of the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room.
1.RNC, Arizona AG nominee file lawsuit contesting certified results, point to ‘errors and inaccuracies’
Abraham Hamadeh, the Arizona Republican nominee for attorney general, joined with the Republican National Committee in a lawsuit filed against several election officials in Mohave County on Friday. The lawsuit comes after a previous lawsuit, filed on Nov. 22, was dismissed as a judge argued the voting results had not yet been certified.
The Republicans said they “are not, by this lawsuit, alleging any fraud, manipulation or other intentional wrongdoing that would impugn the outcomes of the November 8, 2022, general election.”
Ryan Lynch: Arizona needs a complete overhaul in its election process. We need answers.
The producer price index, a measure of what companies get for their products in the pipeline, increased 0.3% for the month and 7.4% from a year ago, which was the slowest 12-month pace since May 2021. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for a 0.2% gain.

3.U.S. sportswriter Wahl dies suddenly while covering World Cup
U.S. Soccer said it was “heartbroken to learn” of Wahl’s death. His wife responded to the U.S. Soccer statement on Twitter, saying she was “in complete shock”.
Qatar’s World Cup organizers, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), paid tribute to Wahl’s “enormous love of football” and offered condolences to his family, friends and media colleagues.
Ryan Lynch: A healthy male suddenly collapses and dies, there is something more here.
4.Twitter Files Part 3 reveals what led to Trump’s removal from social media platform
In “part one” of the third installment, which dates from October 2020-January 6th, Substack writer Matt Taibbi told his followers, “We’ll show you what hasn’t been revealed: the erosion of standards within the company in months before J6, decisions by high-ranking executives to violate their own policies, and more, against the backdrop of ongoing, documented interaction with federal agencies.”
“Whatever your opinion on the decision to remove Trump that day, the internal communications at Twitter between January 6th-January 8th have clear historical import. Even Twitter’s employees understood in the moment it was a landmark moment in the annals of speech,” Taibbi wrote on Friday.
He then shared a screenshot of a Twitter employee asking, “Is this the first sitting head of state to ever be suspended?”
Ryan Lynch: What went on at Twitter is just sickening, I wonder what other tech companies have something similar going on.
5.Ukraine gets more U.S. aid as Russia-Iran ties worry West
Tehran and Moscow have denied Western accusations that Russia is using Iranian drones to attack targets in Ukraine, where officials warned on Friday of a winter-long power deficit after repeated Russian attacks on its energy infrastructure.
Two senior Iranian officials and two Iranian diplomats told Reuters in October that Iran had promised to provide Russia with surface-to-surface missiles as well as more drones.
White House national security spokesman John Kirby told reporters Washington was very concerned about the “deepening and burgeoning defence partnership” between Iran and Russia, and would work to disrupt that relationship, including on drones.
Ryan Lynch: Joey has no issue sending money to Ukraine again and again, but won’t spare a dime to secure the border.
