"Back to you. And some spots could be pushing 90 degrees both today and tomorrow probably in the south sound that's more likely and then by Saturday and Sunday we cool a little bit upper 70s and low 80s Plenty of sunshine, Northwest News Time 1216. Newsradio 1000 FM Your station information sponsored by Muckleshoot Casino. Hello, Neil at the editors desk. I'm Taylor VanCise. Our headlines that we're following today, Ron DeSantis gaining some in ground New Hampshire. A University of New Hampshire survey showing that the former President Trump still has commanding leads in many states. 37 % lead in New Hampshire, but that's down five points from the April poll and the U. S. Heat wave breaking records with very little relief insight. Daily record highs have been set from parts of the West into Texas. Meanwhile, air quality is starting to improve as smoke from wildfires burning in Canada the North and Southeast United States. It's 12 16. There's new information coming to light about the letter former President Donald Trump received regarding an investigation that targets him. More from ABC's Brad Milky and Jonathan Karl. First of all, it's important to understand the distinction here. Trump is facing legal jeopardy almost everywhere. It seems in Georgia, in New York, the documents case in Florida. But Brad, this is the most serious case that Donald Trump is facing. We have one set of laws in this country and they apply to everyone. Jack Smith, of course, has been investigating two things, the classified documents case, but also January 6th, and not just the attack on the Capitol, but the entire effort to overturn the presidential election. So what are we gonna do here? I only need 11 ,000 votes. Tell us, I need 11 ,000 votes. Give me a break. So this target letter, which doesn't for sure mean an indictment is coming, but sure indicates that it is very, very, very likely to come, and to come soon, says that Donald Trump is likely to face indictment for his effort to illegally, allegedly, illegally, cling to power after he lost the 2020 election. Now, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News that three there are statutes mentioned in this new letter. There's conspiracy to commit offense or defraud the United States. There's deprivation of rights under color of law, and then there's witness tampering. How would you prove that Trump broke any of those, and how serious are these? It's hard to think of a more substantive, serious allegation against an American president that he illegally way to say that Trump is actually trying to cling to power after losing an election. As everyone This disaster horrific would never have happened if our election was not rigged. And one the of important the things that we know from some of these interactions before the grand jury. One of the things that Jack Smith has tried is what was Trump's state of mind? He's talked to people like Jared Kushner, Johnny McIntee, his close aide, who was right there with him in and something along the lines of nobody will care about my legacy if I lose, laws, so that won't matter. The only thing that matters is winning. hope Hicks, who is also very close to Donald Trump, trying to establish, did he know that that he lost the election. Had he been given that information, and did he understand he lost? He knowingly trying to get, for instance, local officials to put together or fake slates of electors. So state of mind, and whether or not that he knew what he was was doing was to ask people to break the law. So what happens next then, if this is a target letter letter where they where say you might be facing an indictment. You're probably going to be facing an indictment. Do we know what goes down from here? Well, the The is expectation that we could hear of the indictment. If there is an indictment, very, very, very likely there will be one as early as Friday of this week. We know that Jack Smith gave him until Thursday, gave the foreign president on Thursday to talk to the grand jury. We really don't think that's going to happen. So Friday is the is the beginning of the window. It could also be next week, but a target letter is very late in an investigation. It comes right before an indictment. And I've got to tell you, Brad, you know, the investigation itself is no secret. I mean, you know, Jack Smith has interviewed from Vice President Pence and top aides and officials all across the country. But it is something of a surprise, even a shock to the Trump team to get this target letter. ABC's Jonathan Karl and Brad Milkey, Northwest News Time 1220. Time for our StockCharts .com money update.

But I was always I'm saying this is because you said your wife said, Give it some time and these things can take time. And don't lose hope, and it's e think it's it's particularly hard. As we get a little older in life. We've had some of the major milestones that life had, you know, it happens and then It's like Are we still of we still needed here in the marketplace? So we still of value? Right? Then All those emotions start kind of going through her head. Then we start second questioning and then you know, maybe I need to start taking money for my retirement account. Now, if 52 so maybe I'm over the aggressive and all kind of happens at the same time.

Boy in high school, and I have another son. That's in college, and he's changed on the way so I just got a youngster will be going to college in a couple of years, and there's your wife have a job outside the home. Yes, she does.

What do you have is and your 41 k? I raise I'm sitting there mind about. Just find one point to my wife's got about 250. We have some cash holdings. Stock and savings is a great savers. How much you have in cash and stock him. Um, that 1 20 in cash and about 100 and stock. So the answer. The question is, What's your annual income? Approximately personally just you. Just me that 1 50. Okay, So you guys are great savers. Savers. I don't know if you need me to tell you that, but you've done a good job. Um, the allocation may or may not be too risky. What were you? What were you going into the financial crisis? No, you're younger than but He was younger. We were sort of I'm a bad road that thing through and it has been a great run. But you know, getting closer to that 62 age. Yeah, you know, they're become some realities where you have to Strategic in your Fossen and not as bold as you were when you were 30. So the mirror so the question we're having this is the can't speak for Scott. The question I'm asking myself. Is this a reaction to what happened? In your job life, which is unusual, which end and frankly, there are times when there's events in life that causes us to have a kind of a different risk profile that went in other times were saying, I have so many uncertainties in my life. Now that I want a little more certainty with my investments, which is so I think lowering the and if you came into our office We would actually bring you through a risk analysis a program That would help us understand what that is today, right? It may not be the same your risk to be different. Two years from now, A zit was two years ago. But even if you're looking, so let's see you plan on full retirement 10 years out. You're not going to spend your entire Four on cake at 62 You just gonna take some income on it, So let's got he's got, he says. Such a great saver, and he's gonna continue safe for another 10 years to move this portfolio that 80 or 85, or 90% stocks is not a big deal, um, down from 100% inequities. So the answer the question would agree. If you if you trim some of the equity exposure off by 10 or 15%. I don't think you would be hurting yourself over the long term. And we are we are pretty deep into a bull market. And I don't You think there's any value in funds that I don't really have access to you like weights and all that. That would move this into?

If you were over age 55 r answer might be a little bit different between the ages of 55 59 a half maybe the little bit different, so If you came into visit with our firm, or I would say any good financial planning firm, independent, fiduciary firm they're going to the good ones will want to do a financial plan on you. And the questions you would ask is You know, Can I retire in 10 years? And what will look that and I also think What is your? What is your income need right now. Does. You've been at 1 50. Maybe you could live it, 100. And still get to your objective. We can live on my wife's salary. It'll be tight, but we can. No no, no. No. What? No, no. What I mean is and maybe you maybe you'll find the job. They the perfect job. You just absolutely love And it pays you 1 50 year. Maybe. But when I'm just thinking, what if there's some job that you have absolutely love like this would be a great job. But this man, it only pays me 100 and 10 have been making 1 50. I don't wanna take that big of a Step back. This is where some financial planning might be helpful here because we've seen a lot of times, Gary and I don't you may have loved your job You're in, you know, but we said a lot of people they've kind of in this crime. They're like I'm gonna retire in seven years. Count down the years. Like why? Why? I don't like what I'm doing and And through some planning whatnot. They went in found other careers, sometimes not at the same pay level. But it's so much they enjoy it. So much more than saying, I'm fine work another year to what I'm questioning. You might already have enough in retirement savings now that if you project out another 10 years, and now without much additional savings, you might still be fine.
