Deutsche Bank starts the process in turning over Trump’s financial records: CNN

Published

On Wednesday, Deutsche Bank has started the process of turning over President Donald Trump’s financial records, according to CNN.

“Deutsche Bank has begun the process of providing financial records to New York state’s attorney general in response to a subpoena for documents related to loans made to President Donald Trump and his business, according to a person familiar with the production,” the report said.

The move comes after the New York attorney general requested the information in March. According to Trump’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen, the president falsified financial information when applying for loans from the international bank. At the time, Trump had hoped to buy the NFL team the Buffalo Bills.

According to public records, Trump has borrowed at least $300 million from Deutsche Bank and it has prompted the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees to look into the complicated financial information of the self-described “billionaire.” A Washington Post report about Trump’s financial documents revealed the president heavily embellished his financial information, claiming Trump Tower was several stories taller and his winery was at least 100 acres larger. It’s unclear why the bank was willing to give loans based on obviously false information.

Lyudmila Laptander, an activist advocating autonomy for her mineral-rich Nenets region in the Russian Arctic, worries authorities are planning to sacrifice its traditions for the promise of economic enrichment.

"If Nenets is merged with another region, I worry that no one will look after our language or our traditions, and that our small villages in the tundra will be forgotten," said Laptander, 61, a member of the Yasavey cultural group.

The autonomous region on the edge of the Arctic Ocean was gripped by protests in May against the government's plans to integrate it with neighbouring Arkhangelsk.

People are paying to hire this donkey to crash their Zoom meetings

Published

The coronavirus pandemic has led millions of people to embrace meetings via Zoom, but admittedly, those can be as tedious as in-person conferences.

So one animal sanctuary in Canada, in dire need of cash after being forced to close to visitors, found a way to solve both problems.

Meet Buckwheat, a donkey at the Farmhouse Garden Animal Home, who is ready to inject some fun into your humdrum work-from-home office day -- for a price.

"Hello. We are crashing your meeting, we are crashing your meeting -- this is Buckwheat," says sanctuary volunteer Tim Fors, introducing the gray and white animal on a Zoom call.

Republican senators are suddenly trying to social distance — from Trump

Published

on

There’s something interesting in today’s news:

A number of Republican Senators have said they are skipping the Republican National Convention this year. The convention was originally scheduled in Charlotte, North Carolina, but at Trump’s insistence was relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, last month. The stated reason was that Democratic North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper would not commit to permitting a full convention out of concerns about the spread of coronavirus, but the abrupt switch to Florida, less than 80 days before the convention, still seems odd to me. Regardless, the switch has created a new problem: Florida is in the midst of a dramatic spike in coronavirus cases, setting a record for new cases in a single day during the weekend —11,458—and running low of ICU beds.
