FaviconMom who touted daughter's 'bucket list' accused in her death 22 Oct 2019, 8:50 am

Mom who touted daughter's 'bucket list' accused in her deathIn a grand jury indictment revealed Monday, Kelly Renee Turner, 41, also known as Kelly Gant, was charged with 13 criminal counts that included child abuse, theft and charitable fraud in the death of Olivia Gant in 2017. The indictment alleges Turner caused Olivia Gant's 2017 death, not the multiple illnesses that the mother claimed the girl had and that prompted publicized ride-alongs with police and fire crews. Olivia's actual cause of death was not immediately clear.

FaviconHarry Dunn: Government knew American suspect was leaving UK 22 Oct 2019, 8:31 am

Harry Dunn: Government knew American suspect was leaving UKThe UK government was warned by the US embassy that the suspect in the crash which killed Harry Dunn was to leave the country. Mr Dunn, 19, was killed when his motorbike collided with a car near RAF Croughton, Northants, on Aug 27. Anne Sacoolas, the wife of an American diplomat, has admitted to driving on the wrong side of the road and hitting the teenager, but she returned to the US and has refused to come back. Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, told the Commons last night that the US embassy alerted them to Ms Sacoolas's "imminent" departure "unless the UK had strong objections" on Sept 13. Police were unable to arrest Ms Sacoolas as the US had not waived her diplomatic immunity. "We duly and immediately objected in clear and strong terms and we have done ever since," said Mr Raab. When the Foreign Office followed up on Sept 16, the embassy said Ms Sacoolas had returned to the US. Mr Dunn's family spokesman said the revelation "added insult to injury". Harry Dunn died in August but the driver of the car that hit him has not returned to the UK to face questioning Credit: Facebook The Foreign Secretary said the case had been raised at "every level" in the US, including with Donald Trump. In a statement, Mr Raab said: "I have already commissioned a review of the immunity arrangements of US personnel and their families at the Croughton annex I do not believe the current arrangements are right and the review will look at how we can make sure they cannot be used in this way again." Mr Raab said diplomatic immunity for Ms Sacoolas has "clearly ended". "There are no barriers to justice being done," in Harry's case he added. Harry's parents were due to meet Northamptonshire Chief Const Nick Adderley on Tuesday, but cancelled because they felt he was only able to offer condolences rather than solutions.

FaviconUS wins ownership of seized North Korean vessel 22 Oct 2019, 7:44 am

US wins ownership of seized North Korean vesselThe United States was awarded ownership of a North Korean cargo ship that was seized for violating international sanctions, the US Justice Department said. The Wise Honest -- the first North Korean vessel to be seized by the US for sanctions violation -- was caught carrying a $3 million shipment of coal in Indonesian waters last year and later handed over to the US. The latest ruling by the Southern District of New York finalises the US government's seizure of the North Korean vessel and ends its use in a "criminal scheme", the Justice Department said in a statement.

FaviconRand Paul: There Are GOP Senators More Loyal to Deep State Than Trump 22 Oct 2019, 5:23 am

Rand Paul: There Are GOP Senators More Loyal to Deep State Than TrumpFox NewsSen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took aim at several unnamed Republican senators on Monday night, telling Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that many of his GOP colleagues are more loyal to the so-called “Deep State” than to the president while criticizing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for not doing more to investigate Democrats.Noting at the top of his primetime Fox News broadcast that Graham promised to use his chairmanship of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee to get to the bottom of the Russia investigation, Carlson groused that the South Carolina lawmaker hadn’t made any progress exposing the “bureaucratic coup” against President Donald Trump.“So far, Graham’s tenure has been defined by total inaction,” Carlson grumbled. “He has subpoenaed neither [former Deputy FBI Director Andrew] McCabe nor [ex-Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein, nor has he launched an investigation. Now his inaction extends to the Ukraine saga.”Paul, meanwhile, claimed that he has urged Graham both publicly and privately to open up investigations and bring in people such as former CIA Director John Brennan and former British counterintelligence officer Christopher Steele to testify about the origins of the Russia probe.“So everything the Democrats have accused President Trump of doing, you know, investigating a political rival with a foreign country, all those same questions should be asked of the Democrats,” Paul exclaimed. “Did they do that to Trump?”Carlson wanted to know why Graham hasn’t moved on opening a Senate investigation into this, prompting Paul to say that the South Carolina lawmaker needs to exercise his power.“We’ve been waiting a long time on this,” Paul continued. “Some people, I’m not going to say Senator Graham, but there are other Republican senators up here whose allegiance is more to the Deep State than it is to the president. I do think Senator Graham does like the president and wants to get to the bottom of it, but a lot of us want to see it get started. We want to see subpoenas.”The Fox News host went on to complain that Graham hasn’t looked into the FBI raid on Trump associate Roger Stone’s house, implying that then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller tipped off CNN ahead of time. (CNN has contended that this is untrue.) “He needs to use his clout, and only he can do it,” Paul replied.Carlson would then ask Paul if Graham’s neoconservative views on foreign policy have caused him to possibly slow-walk the investigations, wondering if Graham’s disagreements with Trump on Syria are affecting his decisions.“There is an establishment in foreign policy and also in the intelligence community,” Paul noted. “The intelligence community truly is the Deep State.”The Kentucky senator concluded that he and Graham have had disagreements in the past over FISA warrants, adding that Graham wants to continue having them issued in private.“There may be a concern that if we look at the intelligence Deep State, that as we find out things, some of their power may diminish,” He said.Carlson, meanwhile, wasn’t the only pro-Trump Fox personality who railed against Graham—typically a reliable supporter of the president—on Monday night. During his Fox Business broadcast, Lou Dobbs called Graham an “embarrassment” who hasn’t “lifted a finger” to help Trump.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

FaviconTestimony Will Now Extend to Weekends: Impeachment Update 22 Oct 2019, 5:01 am

Testimony Will Now Extend to Weekends: Impeachment Update(Bloomberg) -- House impeachment investigators are beginning a new week of closed-door meetings into President Donald Trump’s interactions with Ukraine. Lawmakers plan to hear from William Taylor, the acting ambassador to Ukraine, on Tuesday, and from others.Here are the latest developments:Witnesses Will Now Appear on Weekends (9:15 p.m.)House committees have begun to schedule weekend depositions in their impeachment inquiry, amid predictions the investigation’s conclusion could be pushed deeper into December than expected.On Saturday, Philip Reeker, the acting assistant secretary of European and Eurasian affairs with the State Department, is scheduled to appear behind closed doors before the Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform committees leading the probe, according to an official familiar with the plans.He becomes the first witness in the investigation to be scheduled on a weekend.Reeker had previously been scheduled to testify on Wednesday. But that appearance was deferred without explanation. Reeker’s lawyers had expected the State Department to bar him from testifying, and that the committees would respond by issuing a so-called friendly subpoena.Testimony by other witnesses that had been set for this Thursday or Friday was postponed because of ceremonies being held in honor of the late Representative Elijah Cummings, chairman of the Oversight and Reform Committee.Multiple officials familiar were saying on Monday that the crunch of remaining depositions and other aspects of the investigation were threatening to undo any possible conclusion of the investigation by Thanksgiving or the beginning of December.Trump Wants Barr to Investigate Ukraine (7:10 p.m.)Trump called on Attorney General William Barr to investigate unsupported claims that Ukraine was involved in the origins of the Russia investigation.“I would like the attorney general to find out what’s going on. Because you know what? We’re investigating corruption,” Trump told Sean Hannity of Fox News in an interview scheduled to be broadcast later Monday night.Barr in May began a sprawling inquiry into the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. That inquiry, led by John Durham, a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, came under renewed scrutiny last week after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said at a news conference that foreign assistance to Ukraine was held up in order force Kyiv to cooperate with it.Trump and his allies have asserted, without evidence, that the Ukrainian government sought to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election. “I heard Clinton was involved. I heard they got somebody who wrote the fake dossier. Is it out of Ukraine?” Trump told Hannity. He may have been referring to the dossier that was prepared by a former British spy as opposition research against Trump during the 2016 election.Inquiry Testimony Delayed for Cummings Rites (4:31 p.m.)House impeachment investigators won’t hear witness testimony this Thursday or Friday as ceremonies are held for the late Representative Elijah Cummings, chairman of the Oversight and Reform Committee that is one of the three panels leading the inquiry.Testimony scheduled for Thursday by Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, the director for European affairs at the National Security Council, is being delayed, according to a committee official familiar with the plans.Cummings will lie in state in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall for a public viewing on Thursday after a formal ceremony for lawmakers, family and invited guests. His funeral will be held Friday in Baltimore. -- Billy HouseTestimony by State’s Reeker is Deferred (12:35 p.m.)This week’s planned closed-door testimony schedule is being revised, according to people familiar with the matter.Philip Reeker, the acting assistant secretary of European and Eurasian affairs with the State Department, was set to testify Wednesday, but his appearance is being deferred and officials are in talks, says a person familiar with the matter. Reeker’s lawyers expect the State Department to bar him from testifying, which may be followed by a so-called friendly subpoena from the House committees.Others are still scheduled to testify, including William Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, on Tuesday; Laura Cooper, the deputy assistant secretary of Defense, on Wednesday, and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, the director for European affairs at the National Security Council, on Thursday.Michael Duffey, the White House budget office associate director for national security programs, is still listed as testifying on Tuesday. But acting OMB Director Russell Vought said Monday neither he nor Duffey would comply with the House committees’ deposition requests. -- Billy HouseDemocrat Says No Deadline Set to End Inquiry (11:45 a.m.)Representative Gerald Connolly of Virginia, a senior Democrat on the Oversight Committee, said impeachment investigators “have not set a deadline” for wrapping up the inquiry.“Ideally, from a political point of view, you don’t want this spilling into the re-election or the presidential campaign year if you can help it, at least our part of it,” Connolly said. However, “this needs to be approached with the gravity of the issue and the Senate needs to take it seriously and convene itself as a trial or as a court of judgment.”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last week told fellow Republicans they should be prepared for a possible Senate trial before Christmas. Connolly said the three House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry want to complete a thorough investigation so “we’re not making it even easier for Mitch McConnell to give it a pro forma dismissal.”Connolly said he doesn’t have information about when the House committees will begin holding public hearings. He said the legal fight to enforce subpoenas won’t slow the process, but rather will work in parallel to witness depositions before the committees. -- Laura LitvanHouse GOP to Force Vote on Censure of Schiff (11:27 a.m.)House Republicans plan to force a vote Monday on a resolution censuring House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff for his conduct of the impeachment inquiry into Trump, according to second-ranking Republican Steve Scalise’s office.Majority Democrats are expected to easily block the resolution, which Republicans are rallying around as a way to fight back against the impeachment inquiry.The measure, H.Res. 630, authored by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs, would censure Schiff for his handling of the impeachment inquiry and his description at a committee hearing of Trump’s call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. Schiff said a rough transcript of the call “reads like a classic organized crime shakedown,” and he characterized Trump’s words as asking Zelenskiy “to make up dirt on my political opponent.”According to the rough transcript released by the White House, Trump did ask Zelenskiy to investigate 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son, but he didn’t use the words “make up dirt.”Schiff says his summary was a parody of the call, while Republicans say it was a willful distortion meant to deceive the public. The resolution says, “This egregiously false and fabricated retelling had no relationship to the call itself.”It remains to be seen if the resolution will get unanimous GOP support, including from moderate Republicans in swing districts. So far at least 173 out of 197 House Republicans have signed on as co-sponsors. -- Erik WassonKey EventsRepresentative Francis Rooney, a Republican who said he was open to impeachment, said Saturday he won’t seek re-election. He said he fears for his party’s future, calling the administration’s effort to taint Democrats with Ukrainian help “egregious” and its Syria policy even worse.Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said on “Fox News Sunday” that Trump made the “right decision” to reverse course and not hold next year’s G-7 summit at his Florida golf resort. He also said the president still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer, an early advocate for impeachment, called on the House to open the inquiry’s hearings to the public and “let the American public see the full extent of Trump’s criminal behavior.”\--With assistance from Steven T.

FaviconDemocrats Seek Insider Trading Probe After ‘Trump Chaos’ Article 22 Oct 2019, 12:39 am

Democrats Seek Insider Trading Probe After ‘Trump Chaos’ Article(Bloomberg) -- Democratic lawmakers are increasingly demanding that U.S. authorities investigate allegations raised in a recent magazine article that traders might be using non-public government information to reap huge illegal profits, even as the exchange where the transactions purportedly took place called the story “patently false.”In a Monday letter, 14 Democratic senators urged the heads of the Justice Department, FBI, Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission to probe “disturbing reports of suspicious trading in our futures and equities markets” described in a Vanity Fair piece. The magazine referred to the transactions as “Trump Chaos Trades.”Since the story’s publication, the suggestion that White House leaks could be a factor in futures traders making billions of dollars from well-timed bets ahead of major geopolitical announcements has fueled endless chatter from Washington to Wall Street. Still, the article has been met with widespread skepticism from the financial industry.CME Group Inc., the world’s biggest futures exchange, has dismissed the claims, arguing that the trades highlighted in the story couldn’t have been based on inside information because too many market participants were involved. The article describes five big transactions in S&P 500 e-mini futures from June 28 to Sept. 13, ranging from 55,000 to 420,000 contracts.“As it relates to the Vanity Fair article published on October 17, 2019, regarding activities in the E-mini S&P futures contract, the allegations about the trading activity are patently false,” CME said in an Oct. 18 statement.In Monday’s letter, Democrats said they wanted federal authorities “to investigate immediately whether any rules, laws or regulations were violated.” The lawmakers added that “if any wrongdoing is uncovered, we demand that you swiftly hold violators accountable to the fullest extent possible.”Spokesmen for the SEC and Justice Department declined to comment, while spokesmen for the FBI and CFTC didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.The wagers cited by Vanity Fair were made shortly before market-moving news -- three times involving the U.S.-China trade war, once involving the bombing of Saudi oil fields and once involving Hong Kong politics. Thanks to market reactions, the magazine said, people involved in the transactions could’ve booked gains of between $82.5 million on the smallest to $1.8 billion on the biggest.The story’s author, William D. Cohan, has said that finance professionals with decades of experience alerted him to the trades. Cohan, a former Bloomberg Opinion columnist, has said that factors other than illegal buying-and-selling could explain the transactions and that he doesn’t know whether any nefarious activity actually occurred.Earlier Monday, Angus King, an independent Maine senator who caucuses with the Democrats, also called on the SEC to investigate. Last week, Democratic Representatives Ted Lieu and Kathleen Rice requested a federal investigation into the timing around sales of e-mini futures contracts before significant geopolitical events or statements from Trump.\--With assistance from Nick Baker.To contact the reporters on this story: Ben Bain in Washington at bbain2@bloomberg.net;Matt Robinson in New York at mrobinson55@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jesse Westbrook at jwestbrook1@bloomberg.net, Gregory MottFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

FaviconWarren Calls on DHS to Allow Transgender Migrants Immediate Entry Into U.S. 21 Oct 2019, 11:51 pm

Warren Calls on DHS to Allow Transgender Migrants Immediate Entry Into U.S.Senators Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Tammy Baldwin (D., Wisc.) sent a letter on Thursday to the Department of Homeland Security urging the agency to allow transgender migrants to remain in the U.S. while their asylum cases are processed, rather than being returned to Mexico in accordance with current policy.Under the recently-introduced Migrant Protection Protocols, the Trump administration requires that asylum-seekers who arrive at the southern border remain in Mexico while their claims are processed through DHS and ICE."We…call for DHS to use its discretion to release members of vulnerable populations, including transgender detainees," Warren and Baldwin wrote in a letter addressed to acting ICE Director Matthew Albence and acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan and obtained by Out.com.The senators pointed to the "abuse and neglect of transgender migrants and asylum seekers at the border and in U.S. custody" in the letter, and said the administration "must" allow them entry into the U.S. to prevent such treatment.According current DHS regulations, "individuals from vulnerable populations" may request an exemption from the "Remain in Mexico" rules but transgender migrants rarely benefit from the exemption, according to Warren and Baldwin. In their letter, the pair cite a case in which a transgender asylum-seeker had a finger cut off by a drug cartel in Mexico while she waited for her exemption request to be processed.Baldwin is the first openly-gay senator in the history of the U.S., and is currently serving her second term.Warren has released a slew of progressive policy proposals in recent weeks as part of her presidential campaign. In one plan, Warren promises to detain transgender prisoners with inmates of the opposite biological sex, and laid out her support for federally-funded gender transition medical care for transgender inmates.

FaviconDemocrats are lining up to take Elijah Cummings' Oversight Committee chairmanship 21 Oct 2019, 11:13 pm

Democrats are lining up to take Elijah Cummings' Oversight Committee chairmanshipThere's a long line of Democrats ready to take up one helm of the impeachment probe.House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) died last week after longstanding health problems, leaving open his spot at one of the committees investigating President Trump. Talks of his replacement have been quiet out of respect for Cummings, but a handful of Democrats have said they're looking to take the position, The Washington Post reports.Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) is the most senior Democrat on the oversight committee and is currently serving as its active chair. She briefly told the Post on Friday she's looking to become the full-time chair, but wouldn't expand on her goals due to how recently Cummings had died. She'll likely campaign for the role based on past legislative wins like the permanent 9/11 victims' compensation fund.Reps. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) and Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), both on the committee, are also reportedly looking to take up Cummings' gavel, two people familiar with their plans tell the Post. They declined to comment, but have both "been noticeably more involved in the impeachment probe than Maloney," the Post writes. Also in the running is Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), the third-highest ranking Democrat on the panel who some members of the Congressional Black Caucus are attempting to get into the role, people familiar with background discussions tell the Post. Washington, D.C., Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), who is the second-highest ranking Democrat, will try for the role if Maloney opts out, people familiar with her plans say.Cummings will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, followed by a Friday funeral at his longtime Baltimore church.

FaviconUS targets Cuba tourism with tighter airline sanctions 21 Oct 2019, 10:27 pm

US targets Cuba tourism with tighter airline sanctionsThe US moved to further hurt Cuba's vital tourism industry by tightening the ability of the country's airlines to lease aircraft. The US Department of Commerce said it was revoking existing licenses for US companies leasing aircraft to Cuban carriers, and will deny future applications for aircraft leases. The move could make it harder for Cuba to service its rapidly growing tourism sector, a key source of foreign revenue for the poor country.

FaviconJudge asked to stop student suspension over note about rape 21 Oct 2019, 10:17 pm

Judge asked to stop student suspension over note about rapeA high school activist's comment about rape posted on a bathroom mirror represents constitutionally protected free speech — and punishing her would discourage young victims from coming forward, an attorney said Monday. The sticky note that proclaimed "There's a rapist in our school and you know who it is" aimed to call attention to the unaddressed problem of sexual assaults, said Emma Bond from the American Civil Liberties of Maine. U.S. District Judge Lance Walker, who listened to the arguments on Monday, said he'll rule soon on Aela Mansmann's request to intervene to stop a three-day suspension imposed by school administrators.

FaviconMark Zuckerberg Has Quietly Recommended Campaign Hires to Pete Buttigieg 21 Oct 2019, 9:59 pm

Mark Zuckerberg Has Quietly Recommended Campaign Hires to Pete Buttigieg(Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc. chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg has privately recommended several potential hires to Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign, a rare example of direct political involvement from one of tech’s most powerful executives.Earlier this year, Zuckerberg sent multiple emails to Mike Schmuhl, Buttigieg’s campaign manager, with names of individuals that he might consider hiring, campaign spokesman Chris Meagher confirmed. Priscilla Chan, Zuckerberg’s wife, also sent multiple emails to Schmuhl with staff recommendations. Ultimately, two of the people recommended were hired.The emails between Zuckerberg and Buttigieg have come to light as Zuckerberg faces unrelenting attacks from politicians from both parties over such issues as misinformation, privacy, election meddling and bias. Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify Wednesday before the House Financial Services Committee on Facebook’s impact on the financial services and housing sectors.Zuckerberg used to make political contributions more frequently, including to former and current House speakers Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi in 2014, but he hasn’t made any political donations or endorsements to specific candidates in the 2020 election cycle. In June, he gave $5,000 to Facebook’s PAC, which contributes to both Democratic and Republican candidates.‘Top-Tier Organization’“Since the beginning of the campaign, we’ve built a top-tier operation with more than 430 staff in South Bend and around the country,” Meagher said. “The staffers come from all types of background, and everyone is working hard every day to elect Pete to the White House.”A spokesman for the Zuckerberg-Chan family told Bloomberg News that the employees asked the tech mogul and Chan to recommend them.“Having seen Mark’s visit to South Bend in 2017 and Facebook Live with Mayor Buttigieg, colleagues later asked Mark and Priscilla to connect them with the Buttigieg campaign as they were interested in joining,” spokesman Ben LaBolt said in a statement. Zuckerberg visited South Bend, Indiana, in April 2017 as part of his philanthropic work and got a tour from Buttigieg, that Zuckerberg live-streamed.LaBolt didn’t answer a follow-up question asking whether Zuckerberg has made similar connections for other candidates.Zuckerberg, asked about the emails on a call with reporters Monday, acknowledged that he and his wife passed along hiring recommendations but said that those actions should not be seen as an endorsement.“I think this should probably not be misconstrued as if I’m like deeply involved in trying to support their campaign or something like that,” he said.Making IntroductionsIn the emails, Zuckerberg and Chan recommended potential campaign hires, and two of them are now on staff: Eric Mayefsky, senior digital analytics adviser, and Nina Wornhoff, organizing data manager.Mayefsky previously worked as the director of data science at Quora, a 10-year-old question-and-answer startup founded by former Facebook employees. Mayefsky worked at Facebook for almost four years starting in 2010, according to his LinkedIn profile. Wornhoff previously worked as a machine learning engineer at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and in Democratic politics in Indiana, Buttigieg’s home state.The communication was initiated by Zuckerberg and Chan, Meagher said. It was sent shortly after Buttigieg officially launched his campaign in mid-April.“From the CNN Town hall in March to our launch a month later, we literally got 7,000 resumes,” Meagher said. “I think that he (Zuckerberg) thought Eric would be a good staff hire with a lot of experience and same with Nina and Priscilla.”Crimson ConnectionZuckerberg, 35, and Buttigieg, 37, overlapped at Harvard, and Buttigieg was friends with two of Zuckerberg’s roommates. He was also one of Facebook’s first 300 users. But they were only introduced years later by a mutual Harvard friend.The staff recommendations from Zuckerberg are the first evidence of the Facebook CEO actively assisting a presidential campaign. A number of other high-ranking Facebook executives, including David Marcus, the executive leading Facebook’s cryptocurrency efforts, Naomi Gleit, one of Facebook’s longest-tenured executives, and Chris Cox, former chief product officer who is close friends with Zuckerberg, have donated to Buttigieg.In recent weeks, Democrats have escalated their criticism of Facebook for its refusal to moderate political ads. Elizabeth Warren, in particular, has repeatedly attacked Zuckerberg and Facebook over its decision not to fact check posts or ads shared by politicians. Joe Biden wrote the company on Thursday demanding that an ad paid for by a pro-Donald Trump super-PAC be pulled down for what he said were lies about his Ukrainian-related work as vice president.Silicon ValleyHe’s been more apprehensive about breaking up big tech companies than some of his Democratic counterparts, saying the issue of monopolies extends beyond tech. But he’s also raised concerns about tech companies having too much power and has floated regulation, including fines and the blocking of new mergers, for Facebook and other big tech companies.Republicans have accused Zuckerberg and Facebook of bias against conservative viewpoints, claiming that Facebook and other social media platforms unfairly suppress their views. Zuckerberg reportedly started to hold private meetings last summer with conservative leaders to hear their concerns.In the past, Facebook embedded staffers with political campaigns to give them guidance on how to best use the social media platform. The 2016 Trump campaign said it greatly benefited from having Facebook staffers on hand.
