An attempt has been made on the life of President Theodore Roosevelt. The President narrowly avoided death as the bullet flew inches from his head. It is rumored that Andrew Carnegie is responsible for the attempt. This update has thrown the committee into fierce debates over the credibility of each member.

This update comes at a point in which the Invest in America Act was passed and gained support from the American public. This legislation calls for increased government support for businesses in the U.S. The committee debated on holding a trial of their own or allowing the government to conduct an investigation. Delegates noted the importance of Andrew Carnegie to the purpose of the committee. Ultimately, the investigation concluded with a lack of evidence to support the belief that Andrew Carnegie was responsible for the attempt. Despite this, police pinned Colin Farrell as the man who failed to execute the attack. Roosevelt was relieved to hear the news of Farrell’s body being recovered. This did not last long for Roosevelt, as an attempt was soon made on the life of Andrew Carnegie, a figure central to his trust-busting mission.

After deliberations, the committee voted in favor of a directive to meet with Mr. Charles McGarry, leader of the American Communist League, and launch investigations into the assassination attempt of the president and into the leadership of the ACL. Mr. McGary was soon killed and replaced with Bose Chadman, a more radical leader.

Delegates then debated the best approach for dealing with the ACL. Accusations were made against delegates, including questions over the affiliations of J.P. Morgan. Morgan stated, “Andrew Carnegie was framed the first time, and now they’re targeting me to test their luck.” J.P. Morgan,” suggesting many of the ACL’s claims were unfounded and attention-seeking.
