White House readies for Chauvin verdict

The Biden administration is consulting with state and local officials in Minnesota in anticipation of a verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd last summer.

The city of Minneapolis, and the country at large, is on edge over the potential outcome of the Chauvin trial. The prosecution rested its case on Monday, and a verdict is expected as early as this week. Officials around the country are bracing for unrest to follow.
