WASHINGTON/DUBAI, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. "We are in no rush," said a senior Iranian official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Therefore, time is not of the essence for Iran," said a second senior Iranian official. read moreDANGLINGThe lack of better policy options for Washington, and Tehran's view that time is on its side, could leave the deal dangling. "It is unclear whether Iranian leaders have decided not to revive the deal or have not made a definitive decision, but either way, continuing this limbo period likely serves their interests," Rome said.

REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque(Reuters) - The White House is planning to circulate a memo in the U.S. Congress defending President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan a year ago, Axios reported on Sunday. The memo said Biden’s move strengthened national security by freeing critical military and intelligence agents, the report said, citing a copy of the document.

Sources told NBC News that in the last days of Trump's presidency aides rushed to pack up documents. One source said Trump didn't seriously start preparing to exit the White House until after January 6. But, given the recovery of additional classified documents on Monday, the report raised questions about how cooperative and forthcoming the former president and his team have been with investigators. Trump's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. During his four years in office, Trump developed a reputation for being flippant with presidential records, which are required by law to be preserved.

John Kelly, ex-White House chief of staff, said Trump didn't believe in the classification system. Kelly's remarks come amid an FBI probe into the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. Kelly's remarks come amid an FBI probe into the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. The FBI during its search recovered 11 boxes containing classified records that Trump took with him from the White House once he left office, according to the court records made public Friday. "President Trump, in order to prepare for work the next day, often took documents, including classified documents, from the Oval Office to the residence," a Friday statement said.

Trump’s style of handling White House documents has been described by people who worked for him as slapdash and ad hoc, contributing to the debacle he now faces. The source said that it was only after Jan. 6 — two weeks before Biden’s swearing-in — that he began to make serious preparations to vacate the White House. But the FBI collected subsequent information that indicated there were more sensitive documents, leading it to get a warrant to search Mar-a-Lago Monday. At least two dozen FBI agents executed the search warrant and carted off more boxes and records, according to the search warrant’s property receipt. But when media organizations tried to gain access to the records, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows argued in court that the records were not instantly declassified.

The White House and Twitter Censorship
  + stars: | 2022-08-13 | by ( The Editorial Board | ) www.wsj.com   time to read: 1 min
Social-media platforms have often censored conservatives, and sometimes in tandem with political pressure to do so. Now comes hard evidence that Twitter booted blogger Alex Berenson after White House officials privately complained about him to Twitter employees. Mr. Berenson has been a vocal critic of government lockdowns, mask mandates and mRNA vaccines. In our view he’s been too quick to dismiss the vaccine benefits and overstated their potential risks, which has hurt his credibility. But that’s no worse than the powers-that-be who have overstated their benefits and been too quick to dismiss their potential, if small, risks.

WASHINGTON — The Republican Party’s post-FBI-raid rally around former President Donald Trump could provide an inadvertent boost to another politician: President Joe Biden. Biden wouldn’t dare touch the politics of a criminal investigation, according to White House officials and party operatives. “It only diminishes the credibility of the professional investigations that are going on.”That’s a view shared by the White House. And, most important to the White House, many are tying Republicans’ defense of Trump to Biden’s case that the party is too extreme. One Democratic lawmaker who is close to the Biden White House has a different set of mixed feelings about the raid.

Federal officials seized 11 boxes of classified information, though Trump has denied wrongdoing. Hillary Clinton and Richard Nixon are among the officials who have also been accused of mishandling records. The agency is investigating if Trump broke three federal laws related to the handling of national security information. From former President Richard Nixon to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, here are some examples that include documents, emails, and audio tapes. Berger was found to have smuggled out highly classified documents, destroying some, and lying about possessing them.

Giuliani says Trump will "raid every one of Biden's houses" if the ex-president runs and wins in 2024. "Breaking into the home of a former president is a political act," Giuliani told The New York Post. "If Trump gets elected, the first thing he'll do is raid every one of Biden's houses," he added. Giuliani has also been one of the fiercest proponents of Trump's challenges to the 2020 presidential election. Giuliani told a group at the time that included then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and then-Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien.

Trump and Fox News delivered the whataboutism defense of Obama transferring records to Chicago after his term. Now, the former president and his allies are clinging to completely unrelated claims about former President Barack Obama. "What happened to the 30 million pages of documents taken from the White House to Chicago by Barack Hussein Obama? But the facts don't quite align with Trump's statementsTens of thousands of Obama's documents were transported to Chicago. Some of this material was then turned over to Obama's presidential library, which, again, is the process that is supposed to happen.

Mick Mulvaney said that someone "very close" to Trump is possibly working with the FBI. Mulvaney, who was Trump's chief of staff, said even he didn't know there was a safe at Mar-a-Lago. He estimated there were six to eight people in Trump's inner circle with access to such information. Mulvaney spoke to CNN on Thursday about the FBI's Monday raid of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. "I didn't even know there was a safe at Mar-a-Lago, and I was the chief of staff for 15 months," Mulvaney said.

White House senior advisor Anita Dunn is being forced to divest an investment portfolio worth an estimated $16.8 million to $48.2 million that ethics attorneys say poses significant conflicts of interest in her new role. "The ethics rules require White House officials to recuse from matters that conflict with their financial interests. Ethics requirements for White House officials and lawmakers don't require precise values, relying instead on a fairly wide range. Dunn additionally held between $1 million and $5 million of stock in marketing firm Stagwell, which she received after it acquired SKDK in 2015.

Former US President Donald Trump raises his fist while walking to a vehicle outside of Trump Tower in New York City on August 10, 2022. Stringer | AFP | Getty ImagesAs Donald Trump considers whether to make a third run for the White House — and when to announce that decision — the former president faces a raft of official investigations and civil lawsuits. The raid was connected to a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., which is investigating Trump over the removal of records from the White House when he left office in January 2021. The National Archives and Records Administration in January 2022 retrieved 15 boxes of White House records from Mar-a-Lago. Witnesses have testified that Trump, after holding a rally for supporters outside the White House early that day, wanted to join the crowd outside the Capitol as they protested Biden's election.

Trump released a new statement amid reports that he took nuclear documents from the White House. Whataboutism aside, Trump's statement notably did not deny reporting that he took top-secret documents to Mar-a-Lago. Instead, he again attacked former President Barack Obama, falsely accusing him of illegally keeping classified documents. "President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified," Trump said in the statement. "Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more.

In the days since the F.B.I. searched Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald J. Trump’s private club and home in Florida, the White House has made a point of staying quiet. President Biden was not given advance notice of the search on Monday, Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, said this week. And a White House official said Mr. Biden was not given a heads-up that Attorney General Merrick B. Garland would speak to reporters on Thursday, when he announced that the Justice Department was moving to unseal the search warrant. The White House’s approach is part of a concerted effort to make sure the law enforcement operation is not seen as partisan.

Through their work in the White House Counsel’s Office, several of Mr. Trump’s representatives had helped fight requests from Congress for White House records during Mr. Trump’s first impeachment in 2019. Mr. Trump left the White House on the morning of Jan. 20, just hours before President Biden was inaugurated. The National Archives said it received a collection of documents from the White House at the end of the administration. It later said that many had been torn up and taped back together, and that others were handed over in scraps that officials had never reconstructed. The agency said it had negotiated with Mr. Trump’s lawyers throughout 2021 to have the materials returned.

The FBI's search at Trump's Mar-a-Lagoo has sparked new questions about missing classified documents. Here is a timeline on the missing Trump papers and how the FBI came to search Mar-a-Lago. The Justice Department is investigating whether he violated three federal laws, including the Espionage Act, when he took classified documents to the resort. The statement came hours after he responded to a Washington Post report that the FBI searched for classified documents that contained nuclear information, calling that a "hoax." The Wall Street Journal also reported on Friday that the FBI took 11 sets of classified documents back with them after searching former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Christopher Wray, who was appointed as the agency’s director in 2017 by Trump, called threats circulating online against federal agents and the Justice Department “deplorable and dangerous.”“I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement,” Wray said. He declined to answer questions about the hours-long search Monday by FBI agents of Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida resort. Murphy told NBC News the threats were detected as part of Logically’s daily research into threats to election officials and operations. He said the threats against the FBI often contained references to violence against specific targets. Logically has identified threats against FBI individuals and facilities, and has provided the relevant information to law enforcement, he said.

It seems that 2025 will be the next time Dems will be able to revisit the GOP tax cuts. The 2017 Republican tax cuts survived a Democratic-controlled House, Senate, and White House largely intact — and they're likely here to stay. Manchin repeatedly pressed to roll back the Trump tax cuts as well, until he took most tax increases off the table in mid-July. Joshua Roberts/Getty ImagesWhen Republicans approved their tax bill, they made the corporate tax cuts permanent but didn't do so for individual tax cuts. "Up to now, it's been about preserving the tax cuts that worked to get the economy going again," Sen.

BRUSSELS, Aug 11 (Reuters) - The European Union said on Thursday it was "deeply concerned" about proposed tax credits for purchases of electric vehicles in the United States because they would be biased against foreign producers and may breach World Trade Organization (WTO) rules. Under a provision of the $430 billion climate and energy bill that was passed by the Senate on Sunday, U.S. buyers of zero-emissions electric vehicles (EVs) would be eligible for tax credits worth several thousand dollars. However, domestic content conditions would apply to the tax breaks to push the EV industry away from reliance on China and spur local investment in battery minerals and manufacturing. Garcia Ferrer told a news briefing the EU agreed with Washington that tax credits are an important incentive to drive demand for EVs and promote the transition to sustainable transport and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. "So we continue to urge the United States to remove these discriminatory elements from the bill and ensure that it is fully compliant with the WTO."

They received footage specifically from areas of the club where they believed the documents might have been stored, the person said. Among those who investigators reached out to was Molly Michael, Mr. Trump’s assistant in the outer Oval Office who also went to work for him at Mar-a-Lago, three people familiar with the outreach said. Even with these questions satisfied, The Times uses anonymous sources as a last resort. Investigators have also reached out to Derek Lyons, the former White House staff secretary, whose last day was Dec. 18, 2020, and no longer works for Mr. Trump, with questions about the process for handling documents, according to a person familiar with the outreach. Federal officials came to believe that Mr. Trump had not relinquished all the material that left the White House with him at the end of his term, according to three people familiar with the investigation.

August 31 is an important date for millions of Americans with federal student loans — it's not just the day the pause on payments is set to expire, but also the deadline by which President Joe Biden will decide on broader federal student loan forgiveness. More than 40 million Americans carry student loan debt. A wide-scale student loan cancellation of $10,000 per borrower would forgive a total of $321 billion of federal student loans and eliminate the entire balance for about 11.8 million borrowers, according to the Federal Reserve. The average borrower would receive $8,478 in student loan forgiveness. "He is going to make his decision on this, and when he has something to say, we will share that."
