    Golocal247.com news

    (This January 16 story corrects sixth paragraph to say Republicans hold 53 rather than 52 seats in the 100-seat Senate.) By Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer said on Wednesday he will oppose President Donald Trump's attorney general nominee, William Barr, saying he is not convinced that Barr will protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe or provide Congress with a full report on Mueller's findings. "We do not have the kind of strong and clear commitments to the report being issued and there being no interference in the investigation that are needed, particularly now, with President Trump treating the Justice Department as he has," Schumer told reporters following a private meeting with Barr.

  • Al-Qaeda Hotel Attack Kills 21, Shaking Kenya Economy Pillar

    Golocal247.com news

    Using hand grenades, automatic rifles and a suicide-bomber, the militants stormed 14 Riverside in Nairobi on Tuesday afternoon, a venue popular with business travelers and Kenya’s elites and home to offices of companies including Pernod Ricard SA and Dow Chemical East Africa Ltd. That precipitated an 18-hour siege around the DusitD2 hotel, which President Uhuru Kenyatta said ended about 9 a.m. Wednesday with the attackers dead. Somalia-based al-Shabaab took responsibility for the assault, the latest in a recent wave of jihadist strikes across Africa, including in Nigeria and Mali, which a loose coalition of African, Western and United Nation troops are struggling to stop. It’s al-Shabaab’s first significant assault in Kenya since it killed 147 people at a northeastern university in April 2015 and echoed a September 2013 attack on Nairobi’s Westgate mall that left 67 dead and rocked the tourism industry.

  • Apple boss Tim Cook attacks 'shadow economy' of data in call for new privacy law

    Golocal247.com news

    Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook has called for the US to introduce a national privacy law, attacking a “shadow economy” in which people’s personal data is bought and sold without their knowledge. Mr Cook said companies should have to collect as little data as possible and make it easy for people to delete the information that is held about them. It is the latest attempt from Apple to position itself as the steward of consumers’ privacy, and to draw a line between itself and companies such as Facebook and Google. Mr Cook said that people need to “win back their right to privacy” and that companies that sell data should have to register with the Federal Trade Commission, the US consumer watchdog. “I and others are calling on the US Congress to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation - a landmark package of reforms that protect and empower the consumer,” Mr Cook wrote in Time Magazine. He singled out “data brokers”, companies that purchase, bundle up and sell data on individuals, such as credit reference agencies, saying that most people were unaware of how companies transact in their data. “Right now, all of these secondary markets for your information exist in a shadow economy that’s largely unchecked. Let’s be clear: you never signed up for that,” Mr Cook wrote. The US does not have a national equivalent to the UK’s Data Protection Act or the European privacy legislation, GDPR. Facebook, Amazon and Google have all said they would support a law, but failed to put forward any concrete proposals. Mr Cook said companies should aim to minimise the amount of data they collect and make it easier for people to delete or correct it. Mr Cook has played up Apple’s privacy credentials in recent months, as sales of its iPhones stumble and as Google and Facebook have been embroiled in repeated data controversies. Its privacy commitment has come under scrutiny, since Apple receives billions of dollars a year from Google to be the default search engine on the iPhone. Mr Cook has defended the deal, saying the company has built in controls to limit how much users can be tracked.

  • Rudy Giuliani:  'I never said there was no collusion' with Russia

    Golocal247.com news

    Rudy Giuliani, the personal lawyer of Donald Trump,  insisted he "never said there was no collusion" between the president's 2016  election campaign and Russia – only that Mr Trump himself was not involved. Speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the former New York mayor said he did not know if others involved in the campaign had worked with Russia. "I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or between people in the campaign," Mr Giuliani said. "I said the President of the United States," he added. "There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC." U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier this week he was "insulted" by the suggestion he might have been working for Russia Credit: AP Earlier this week, Mr Trump had insisted he "never worked for Russia" following two bombshell reports. "It’s a disgrace that you even ask that question," he told reporters on the White House’s South Lawn. "It’s all a big fat hoax." In the first report, The New York Times said the FBI opened an investigation into whether Mr Trump was acting on Russia’s behalf soon after he became president. Meanwhile, The Washington Post detailed what it said were the unusual lengths taken by Mr Trump to hide the contents of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Both men’s comments come as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation looms large in the background, punctuated by guilty pleas, convictions and indictments of former Trump associates. These include his former national security advisor Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort and Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Manafort has admitted to sharing polling data with a Russian during the 2016 presidential race, according to a court filing inadvertently made public by his lawyers. CNN reported that the intended recipients were two pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs. But on Wednesday, Mr Giuliani suggested that was "not collusion". "Polling data is given to everybody," he told CNN.
