Rosenstein defiant as impeachment talk rises

Source: The HILL

Rod Rosenstein is offering a fierce defense of the Justice Department amid mounting Republican criticism, making an unusually public stand for the institution he has served for nearly three decades.

On Tuesday, the deputy attorney general rebuked the nascent conservative effort to impeach him, likely exacerbating tensions with conservatives in the House.

House Republicans are demanding access to classified documents related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, including a heavily redacted memo that spells out the scope of the investigation.

Republican lawmakers led by Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus one of President Trumpís top allies in Congress, have drafted eight articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. The articles make a series of charges against Rosenstein and question his credibility, reputation and fitness to serve.

Trump defends payment to Stormy Daniels after Giuliani revelation

Source: The HILL


President on Thursday defended a $130,000 payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, saying that nondisclosure agreements are "common among celebrities and people of wealth" and that none of the money came from his campaign.

In a series of tweets, the president offered some of his most extensive comments to date on the payment by Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, which Daniels alleges was to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump years ago.

"Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. These agreements are very common among celebrities and people of wealth," Trump tweeted.

First police video of Las Vegas concert massacre released

Source: NBC

Authorities on Wednesday reluctantly released the first installment of police video from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the massacre of 58 people last year at an outdoor music concert at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo, chief of the combined Las Vegas police and Clark County sheriff's offices, strongly objected to releasing hundreds of recordings and documents from the investigation but said he had no choice under a court order obtained by news organizations.

Lombardo apologized to Las Vegans in advance on Tuesday, predicting that the material would unnecessarily force them to relive the night of terror and strain the department's resources as officers were diverted to sift through the documents and recordings.

The first police body camera videos released Wednesday run about 9 minutes combined and shed little light on the investigation. They were shared with NBC affiliate KSNV and other local news organizations and are only the first of what will be numerous releases over the coming months, estimated to include 750 hours of video alone

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. will pay about $110 million to settle claims that it used "unsafe and unsound practices" in its foreign exchange trading business.

Goldman Sachs will pay $54.75 million to both the Federal Reserve Board and the New York Department of Financial Services, Federal and state regulators said.

According to regulators, in 2008-2013 the bank's traders used electronic chat rooms to talk about customer currency orders in order to obtain higher profits.

Traders had the opportunity to adjust the prices of certain securities and help traders of other banks by providing them with confidential information that could improperly affect currency prices or disadvantage customers.
