Body parts from threatened wildlife widely sold on Facebook

Facebook is displaying advertisements for well-known American corporations on group pages operated by overseas wildlife traffickers illegally selling the body parts of threatened animals, including elephant ivory, rhino horn and tiger teeth.

In a secret complaint filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, wildlife preservation advocates allege that Facebook’s failure to stop illicit traders using its service for illegal activity violates the social network’s responsibilities as a publicly traded company.

When Jack Dorsey’s Fight Against Twitter Trolls Got Personal: The Twitter CEO has taken an increasingly aggressive approach to policing the social media platform.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has taken an increasingly aggressive approach to policing the social media platform.
Last November, Twitter stripped Richard Spencer, the high-profile white nationalist, of his blue checkmark, his verified status on the social media platform. His badge’s removal, coinciding with a purge of other alt-right account verifications, came just days after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted that Twitter’s verification system was “broken,” in response to a growing user uproar about neo-Nazis being conferred this status marker. The original intent had been to denote an account’s authenticity, but over time it has been erroneously interpreted as an endorsement. “We failed by not doing anything about it,” Dorsey wrote in his tweet. “Working now to fix faster.”

Trump blasts FBI raid on Michael Cohen as “disgraceful situation”

After President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, had his Virginia condo raided by the FBI last summer, Trump called the law enforcement move “pretty tough stuff” — and left it at that.

Not so on Monday, after FBI agents executed a series of search warrants on the law office and Park Avenue apartment of Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen. “I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “It’s a disgraceful situation. … I’ve been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”

Trillion-dollar deficits come roaring back under Trump

Republicans’ tax cuts and the new spending bill Congress approved last month will send the economy surging this year to 3.3 percent growth — but will also send the deficit soaring back to the record levels of the early Obama years, the Congressional Budget Office said Monday.

Deficits will top $800 billion this year and will reach $1 trillion by 2020, just as President Trump prepares to face voters in his bid for re-election. They will remain above $1 trillion for the foreseeable future, the analysts said, painting a better economic picture but a significantly worse fiscal picture than last year.

Alan Dershowitz: Today is a ‘very dangerous day for lawyer-client relations’

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz warned Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to raid President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office is an assault on the privileged lawyer-client relationship.

Dershowitz said on Fox News that he believes the decision to raid Michael Cohen’s office would be a sign that Mueller is trying to turn Cohen against Trump.

The GOP tax plan means short-term gains for the economy, but federal debt is primed to explode, CBO analysis says

The Congressional Budget Office forecast that the new tax law will generate an average of 0.7 percent growth over the decade and create 1.1 million jobs.
However, larger budget deficits would crowd out private investment in later years, dampening economic growth.
As a result, the CBO estimated the cumulative deficit over the next decade will be $1.6 trillion larger than previously projected. By 2028, the national debt would total 96 percent of GDP.

Trump furious after FBI seizes documents from his lawyer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal agents on Monday raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

A furious Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, said from the White House that it was a “disgrace” that the FBI “broke into” his lawyer’s office. He called Mueller’s investigation “an attack on our country,” prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department’s special counsel.
