Rudy Giuliani Is a Hot Mess | The New Yorker

US federal agents have searched the Manhattan home and office of Rudy Giuliani, former President Donald Trump’s attorney, a law enforcement official says. The raid marks an escalation of the investigation into the Ukrainian business dealings of Mr Giuliani. Mr Giuliani’s lawyer, Bob Costello, confirmed search warrants had been executed, and that authorities had seized mobile phones. Mr Giuliani, 76, did not immediately respond to a request for comment as members of the media assembled outside his apartment. The warrants included an allegation that Mr Giuliani failed to register as a foreign agent, a violation of lobbying laws.

Trump Needs To Win The Election To Keep His ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ Card | HuffPost Australia

“He’s in a very precarious financial situation,” Painter said. “And we don’t know who the creditors really are. Because if Deutsche Bank makes a loan, you have no idea whether Deutsche Bank has the risk attached to that loan, or whether somebody else has made a commitment to Deutsche Bank to take on a piece of that, or all of it.” That poses national security and other risks to the United States and also highlights the legal and financial uncertainty Trump and his web of businesses may face if he loses in November. “When he’s not president anymore, we don’t know what’s going to happen,” Painter said. “And neither does he, so he wants to stay in order to continue to prop those businesses up. The minute he’s out, I think the loans could get called. And there could be a lot of investigations.”

Expand China investigation – most G20 countries ignored pandemic warning – Michael West

Investigating the source of COVID-19 and how the outbreak was handled by every major nation.

Blame Game

To some people the answer is self-evident: China. Maybe those calling for a “China only” investigation should be looking closer to home?

The world is entitled to know the origins of COVID-19 and exactly how the outbreak began and how it was handled by every major nation, including China, given the pandemic alarm was raised back in September 2019. The World At Risk report by WHO and the World Bank Group contained dire warnings of a possible pandemic. These were largely ignored by most G20 countries including Australia. Is it any wonder most countries were dangerously ill-prepared, resulting in needless deaths? Marcus Reubenstein reports.

Thanks to a virus, transported in droplets just 0.005 millimetres in diameter, life as we know it has changed enormously.

The mortality rate of COVID-19 should see that is does not even come close to the deadliest pandemic in global history. However, as the world is so much more interconnected than at any previous time in history, the global disruption and economic fallout is without precedent.

With the world having sustained so much damage, the inevitable question is: Who is to blame?

JUSTICE IS BLIND, so the old saw goes.

It is certainly blind to the crimes and misdemeanours of our political and economic overlords, the one per cent.
