Arkansas is bearing the brunt of a tornado outbreak in the Midwest. There are reports of dozens of injuries and widespread damage after a tornado ripped through Little Rock, Arkansas this afternoon. Then, another tornado touched down to the west in the city of Wynne where the police chief reports "total destruction" and is asking for help from other agencies.        Former president Trump has raised over four-million-dollars since his indictment in Manhattan. On Thursday, it was announced Trump will face over 20 charges for alleged hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Over the next 24-hours, Trump's campaign began sending out fundraising emails and also asked for donations on his Truth Social platform.        Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office is firing back at Congressional Republicans regarding the indictment of former President Trump. The House Judiciary Committee has been demanding Bragg testify about the investigation that led to a grand jury indicting Trump. The Daily News got a hold of the letter sent from Bragg's office to the Republican led committee accusing the committee of not respecting the process and calls their examination of the facts improper and dangerous.        The White House is condemning Russia for detaining a U.S. reporter. Russian state news agency TASS says reporter Evan Gershkovich of the Wall Street Journal is being detained in Moscow, where he appeared in court with a state-appointed defense attorney and was ordered held in custody until May 29th. Russian authorities are accusing the 31-year-old reporter of espionage.        The first funeral is being held for one of the six victims killed in Monday's mass shooting at a Nashville school. Nine-year-old Evelyn Dieckhaus was laid to rest on Friday afternoon surrounded by family and friends. Senior pastor Clay Stauffer described Evelyn as a "beacon of light and hope, love and joy to those around her."        A juror in Gwyneth Paltrow's ski crash trial is opening up about how the jury came to the decision the actress was innocent. Samantha Imrie told ABC News the verdict had nothing to do with the fact that Paltrow is a celebrity. She said she took into account that she was an actress, but "didn't feel that she had a reason to lie under oath."
