Giuliani is representing President Donald Trump's presidential campaign in numerous failed election lawsuits and has floated conspiracy theories about election fraud. Experts say that disbarment is unlikely, though Giuliani could face lesser sanctions from state bar associations and courts. "Mr. Giuliani's multitude of suits may have crossed the ethical line and in this charged political climate could lead to the ultimate penalty for a lawyer: disbarment." In recent years, Giuliani has been a personal lawyer to President Donald Trump but rarely appears in court in person. And if he's found guilty of a federal felony, he'd be automatically disbarred if the same conduct would be a felony under state law, Gillers said.

Back in April, a reporter mentioned during a press conference that one of the president's sons joked about lobbying Trump to pardon the zookeeper.

Major Apple supplier Foxconn is moving some production of the iPad and Macbook from China to Vietnam, a source told Reuters. The source said Apple requested the move as a way of making its supply chain less reliant on China, following the trade war between the nation and President Donald Trump's administration. The development comes as the outgoing administration of President Donald Trump encourages US firms to shift production out of China. The lines will also take some production from China, the person said, without elaborating how much production will shift. Shifting iPad production to Vietnam will mark the first time Foxconn has assembled the device outside of China.

Sidney Powell, the attorney formerly working with the Trump campaign, has released legal documents challenging election results in Georgia and Michigan. Business Insider found that the Michigan suit had been lodged in federal court, but could not verify the status of the Georgia one. Attorney Sidney Powell has pressed ahead with lawsuits alleging "massive election fraud" in Georgia and Michigan even after President Donald Trump's legal team publicly dumped her. The segment prompted a right-wing backlash against Carlson, which quietened notably after the Trump legal team distanced itself from Powell. In Georgia, Powell's suit is aimed at Republican Govs.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he had granted a "full pardon" to his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who twice pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. The request was put on hold while the federal judge presiding over Flynn’s case reviewed the request. "President Trump dangled this pardon to encourage Flynn to backtrack on his pledge to cooperate with federal investigators — cooperation that might have exposed the President’s own wrongdoing. Flynn lied to those agents as well — a federal crime that Mueller’s team used to get a guilty plea from Flynn. After Flynn’s initial plea, Trump tweeted, "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI."

President Donald Trump on Wednesday phoned into a Pennsylvania state Senate hearing where his lawyers were appearing as part of their shriveling legal battle against the election results. The majority of the cases have been denied, dismissed, settled or withdrawn and no court has found even a single case of voter fraud. Trump's hopes of fighting the election results were further dampened this week as several key swing states, including Pennsylvania, certified their election results. Trump ended his call by showering praise on former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is representing his case in Pennsylvania along with lawyer Jenna Ellis. Behind the scenes, however, Trump has expressed frustration with his legal team, as NBC News reported earlier this week.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden is expected to deliver a Thanksgiving address on Wednesday from Wilmington, Del. Biden's speech comes as the coronavirus cases continue to increase around the country, raising alarm among some health officials that holiday travel and indoor gatherings could lead to more outbreaks. The country is also facing a surge in food insecurity due to the impact of the virus, with food banks around the country reporting long lines ahead of the holiday. The speech follows President Donald Trump's traditional turkey pardoning on Tuesday, when the outgoing president touted a record-setting stock market but made no mention of the record-high Covid-19 cases. Biden will spend the Thanksgiving holiday at his beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware.

Here’s why Trump’s lawyers are very unlikely to face disbarment, suspension, or even lighter sanctions such as a fine. BAN ON DECEITFUL CONDUCTAll 50 states and the District of Columbia have legal ethics rules for lawyers that are derived from standards published by the American Bar Association. Judges can punish lawyers who violate ethics rules in a particular case by ordering them to pay the winning party’s legal fees. “We’re under an obligation make statements that have a basis in truth.”In one instance, a Trump lawyer has been accused of crossing the line. Giuliani either knew his tweet was false, or reasonably should have known it was false, Faughnan said.

Now that he’s been voted out of office, immigration experts and advocates say his actions, including policy changes that took place at an “unprecedented” pace, will take some time for a new administration in the middle of an ongoing pandemic to undo. Three people involved in crafting Biden's immigration platform have told NBC News that the changes will be hard-fought and that they may not happen all at once. Overall, the institute estimates Trump made more than 400 executive actions to change the immigration system, at an "unprecedented" pace. Garcia said while policy change takes time, narrative change and the image projected by America are also critical. “There’s already an expression of relief in border communities and families for potential change,” he said.

Vance published his memoir, "Hillbilly Elegy," in June 2016, no one could have foreseen how Donald Trump's imminent electoral victory would propel him into the role of America's de facto "poverty whisperer." "Hillbilly Elegy" and its convenient timing propelled the author to the top of the talking-head circuit. These shared experiences make it obvious to me that Netflix's "Hillbilly Elegy" fails to communicate anything of real substance. In doing so, "Hillbilly Elegy" turned Vance into a household name by peddling his anecdotal accounts of welfare abuse or habitual unemployment to justify the idea that people are to blame for their own suffering. By following Vance's lead, Howard has turned a community's moral failings and human anguish into Oscar bait for those looking to find yet another reason to scoff at the working class.

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are optimistic the Biden administration will allow them to rebuild and move forward on dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC was sidelined by the Trump administration over their warnings on the severity of the outbreak. Trump and his close allies instead pushed misinformation about the novel coronavirus for months, and touted unproven medicines as cures. The CDC has been sidelined by President Donald Trump's administration during the COVID-19 pandemic, in part for their warnings about the outbreak in the US and their efforts to highlight the seriousness of the novel coronavirus. One CDC official told CNN they were excited the transition had finally begun.

Dollar on shaky ground as investors shift to riskier assets
  + stars: | 2020-11-25 | by ( ) + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
The dollar nursed losses on Wednesday as progress in developing a novel coronavirus vaccine and expectations for a fiscal boost from a new U.S. government triggered a shift of funds from the greenback to riskier assets. The U.S. currency teetered near a two-month low against the Australian dollar and a two-year low against the New Zealand dollar, both considered barometers of risk sentiment due to their close ties with the global commodities trade. The dollar stood at $1.1901 against the euro on Wednesday in Asia, close to a two-week low. The dollar index, pitting the dollar against a basket of six major currencies was at 92.129 after falling 0.4% on Tuesday. The New Zealand dollar, which has rallied 5.6% so far this month, is trading just shy of its strongest since June 2018.

President Donald Trump's trade tariffs have created "leverage" that the incoming Biden administration could use to get the outcomes it wants on the international stage, said former top White House trade negotiator Clete Willems. Several trade experts have said that President-elect Joe Biden will likely favor working with allies over slapping punitive tariffs to settle international disputes. But some experts have said Biden may not remove tariffs that Trump has imposed. "Whether you love the tariffs or hate the tariffs, they have created leverage for United States. (The) United States has raised important questions about the multilateral system, and I hope that this (Biden) administration would use that leverage to get outcomes," Willems told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Wednesday.

Twitter announced Tuesday it's relaunching its public application program for verified status, marked by a blue check. Twitter is rebooting its verification system, and the proposed new guidelines could see persistent rule-breakers stripped of their coveted blue check-marks. Twitter gives "verified" status to selected accounts belonging to public figures and organizations, signified by a blue check mark next to their account name. The system has been on ice for three years, but the company announced Tuesday its application process for verified status would relaunch in early 2021. Verified accounts could lose their blue checks if they repeatedly break Twitter's rules.

Biden said he will turn away from outgoing President Donald Trump's "America First" strategy to a more outward-looking U.S. that seems eager to lead, and to embrace its global allies once again. "America is back — we're at the head of the table again," Biden told NBC News in his first interview since being confirmed as the next president. Warm welcomeGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel "very warmly" welcomed Biden's win, and acknowledged that her country needed to take on more responsibility within the transatlantic partnership. "America is and will remain our closest ally, but it expects more from us — and rightly so," Merkel said on Nov. 9, adding that Germany is "working on it." Relief at Biden's election is pervasive in the German Parliament, with officials seeing Biden as a chance to reset relations.

In a video posted on Twitter on Tuesday, Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera said he can't "continue denying the results of the election." He said President Donald Trump's legal challenges are "totally ineffective" and that there's "no realistic prospect" they "will overturn the results of the election." Rivera's comments came a day after Fox News host Laura Ingraham made similar remarks, saying Trump's legal case is hopeless and Biden will be the next president. There is no realistic prospect that any legal challenges will overturn the results of the election," Rivera said. "But I do not believe there is any prospect whatsoever that any court in the land will reverse the results of this election," Rivera said.
