Feds Considering How to Respond After Chauvin Verdict

The Biden admin­is­tra­tion is pri­vate­ly weigh­ing how to han­dle the upcom­ing ver­dict in the tri­al of for­mer Min­neapo­lis Police Offi­cer Derek Chau­vin, includ­ing con­sid­er­ing whether Pres­i­dent Joe Biden should address the nation and dis­patch­ing spe­cial­ly trained com­mu­ni­ty facil­i­ta­tors from the Jus­tice Depart­ment, aides and offi­cials told The Asso­ci­at­ed Press.

The jury resumed delib­er­a­tions Tues­day morn­ing after spend­ing a few hours Mon­day dis­cussing the case behind closed doors. In clos­ing argu­ments ear­li­er in the day, a pros­e­cu­tor told jurors that Chau­vin “had to know” he was squeez­ing the life out of George Floyd as he cried over and over that he couldn’t breathe and final­ly fell silent. Chau­vin faces mur­der and manslaugh­ter charges.

The plans for pos­si­ble pres­i­den­tial remarks are still flu­id, with the tim­ing, venue and nature of the remarks still being con­sid­ered, in part depend­ing on the tim­ing of the ver­dict, accord­ing to two White House aides who were not autho­rized to speak pub­licly about pri­vate con­ver­sa­tions and spoke to the AP on con­di­tion of anonymity.
