  • Trump also criticized then FBI-director James Comey

If only there had been same way for the Trump campaign to know that Manafort, a resident of Trump Tower-who'd made his fortune as a political consultant to dictators and had largely been absent from Republican politics for two decades-was involved in some shady business. In court documents, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent wrote that at least one witness has said Manafort reached out and seemed to be trying to coach them on what to say about his lobbying practices, The New York Times reports.

Where Is Melania? Jokes Aside, Concern Grows About MIA First Lady
However, she recently tweeted that she was "working hard" and "feeling great", but some believe that the FLOTUS didn't write it. First Ladies don't just drop out of sight; they go to Memorial Day wreath layings, for example. "She is not going".

Court documents do not name Manafort's associate, but they refer to him as "Person A" and note the pseudonym is consistent with previous filings in the case. Trump accuses DOJ, Mueller's office of "leaking" his attorneys' letters MORE attempted to tamper with a potential witness while on pretrial release. He has pleaded not guilty to charges related to his failure to disclose his lobbying work for a foreign government.

"My friend P is trying to reach [Person D1] to brief him on what's going on", Person A texted Person D2 on February 28, adding: "Basically P wants to give him a quick summary that he says to everybody (which is true) that our friends never lobbied in the US, and the goal of the program was European Union". The individual then hung up "because he was concerned about the outreach", according to the affidavit. Another message said, "We should talk". I think, however, they were doing a number on Trump himself.

Google retreating from military AI project
The EFF and others stressed the need for moral and ethical frameworks regarding the use of artificial intelligence in weaponry. Google's artificial intelligence would bring "an exquisite capability" for "near-real time analysis", the email said.

Prosecutors also filed notice of the allegation in Manafort's pending tax and bank fraud case in federal court in Alexandria, where Manafort is under under similar conditions of conditional home cinfinement.
