Trump's lawyers were spotted meeting with federal prosecutors to discuss the documents case Monday, after CNN reported last week that prosecutors had obtained an audio recording of the former president purportedly talking about a classified document in his possession in July 2021.

Iran claimed on Tuesday that it had created a hypersonic missile capable of traveling at 15 times the speed of sound, adding a new weapon to its arsenal as tensions remain high with the United States over Tehran's nuclear program.

The tightly choreographed segment on Iranian state television apparently sought to show that Tehran's hard-line government can still deploy arms against its enemies across much of the Middle East.
