EY said on Friday that “it is not aware of any indications of criminal behaviour by its auditors at Wirecard. EY on Thursday criticised the APAS filing as premature, saying had not allowed to respond to the watchdog’s findings, the Financial Times reported.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department investigated whether a lawyer for Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, had been involved in a bribery scheme to win clemency for a man convicted of tax crimes, the New York Times said on Thursday. White House senior advisor Jared Kushner looks on at a U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign rally at Fayetteville Regional Airport in Fayetteville, North Carolina, U.S., November 2, 2020. As part of the plan, a San Francisco real estate developer, Sanford Diller, would make an unspecified political contribution, it added. U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell released an order that described what she called a “bribery-for-pardon” investigation. In October, Broidy pleaded guilty in a separate case to legally lobbying Trump to drop an investigation into a Malaysian embezzlement scandal.

The US Department of Justice investigated an attorney for Jared Kushner in connection with an alleged bribery-for-pardon scheme, The New York Times reported. A billionaire real estate developer enlisted an attorney for Jared Kushner and a fundraiser for President Donald Trump in a suspected scheme to obtain a presidential pardon via bribery, The New York Times reported on Thursday. An attorney for Lowell, however, told The Times that no bribe was ever paid. An attorney for Baras told The Times that he was not representing him "for the purposes of a pardon." In 2017, Lowell made headlines after falling for a prankster imitating his client, Jared Kushner.

President Donald Trump is considering preemptively pardoning as many as 20 close associates before he leaves office in January, Politico reported on Thursday. President Donald Trump is weighing issuing preemptive pardons to as many as 20 close associates, Politico reported on Thursday. Trump has expressed particular concern about a pair of fraud investigations that the New York attorney general's office and the Manhattan district attorney's office are conducting. Trump is likely more concerned about the New York investigations because while the president's pardon power is extraordinarily broad, it does not apply to state-level or local offenses. Both investigations — one civil and one criminal — are focused on the Trump family's business dealings, the Trump Organization, and the president's personal finances.

Global stocks rose on Friday as fresh talks on US coronavirus federal relief lifted investor sentiment. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was said to be "heartened" that Democrats are stepping away from the $2.4 trillion proposal they made in October.

Both leaders embraced a $908 billion coronavirus relief plan on Wednesday.

Facebook is failing to add fact-check labels to the majority of the most viral posts containing fake news about elections in Georgia, according to a report from nonprofit research group Avaaz. Facebook didn't apply fact-check labels to 60% of the top-performing posts containing false election claims — or any label at all to 30% of posts — even though third-party fact checkers had debunked their claims, according to the report. Facebook correctly applied fact-check labels to just 40% of the most viral posts containing false claims about Georgia debunked by its own fact-checkers, according to Avaaz, which analyzed a sample of the top performing posts. The 60% without a fact-check label accounted for more than 370,000 of those interactions. This week, a top Georgia election official tore into Trump and Georgia Sens.

Fauci, America’s top infectious disease expert, was sidelined under President Trump, but President-elect Biden says he will continue in his current role and also become chief medical adviser.

Much better than the Americans have.” Dr. Fauci seemed more than a little skeptical. Later, a chagrined-looking Dr. Fauci, who is ordinarily averse to public conflict, appeared on British television saying that he wanted to apologize.

Shaming others might make you feel good about yourself, but it rarely corrects bad behavior. But the evidence suggests it’s much more productive to talk about safe sex and to help them deal with any adverse consequences of having sex. Likewise, we can lecture people about eating more healthfully and stigmatize those who don’t, but it rarely results in behavioral change. We can demand that people stop socializing and cancel their holidays entirely, but as we saw over Thanksgiving, that doesn’t work. I can remember reading numerous articles early in the pandemic about how to make sure delivery food was virus-free.

Strong denial from ChinaIn a statement to CNBC, China's embassy in the United States denied that it uses forced labor. "Some US politicians have concocted disinformation of so-called 'forced labor' in order to restrict and oppress relevant parties and enterprises in China as well as contain China's development," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying. Coca-Cola said it prohibits any type of forced labor in its supply chain and uses independent, third-party audits to enforce its guidelines.

The senator this year has bought or sold these companies' stock shares, according to an Insider analysis of federal records. The senator's stock trades have become a highly politicized issue, with Ossoff and Democratic allies spending millions of dollars on ads highlighting the controversy. Perdue sold hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of these companies' stock shares during 2020, an Insider analysis of Senate stock trade disclosure records indicates. The Perdue campaign and the fundraiser coordinator, Alice Perry of The Elevated Group, did not return several requests for comment. Perdue sold his Pfizer stock in full on April 14 for between $100,000 and $250,000, Senate records show.
