Condoleezza Rice Calls Giuliani’s Ukraine Involvement ‘Deeply Troubling’

Condoleezza Rice Calls Giuliani’s Ukraine Involvement ‘Deeply Troubling’Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice said Monday that reports detailing the involvement of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in the White House’s Ukraine policy were “deeply troubling.”“What I see right now troubles me. I see a state of conflict between the foreign policy professionals and someone who says he’s acting on behalf of the president but frankly I don’t know if that is the case,” Rice said at a conference in Abu Dhabi. “This is just not a good thing. The world shouldn’t get confusing messages from the United States of America.”Multiple witness have alleged in house testimony that Giuliani conducted his own investigative work without regard for the administration’s formal policy.William Taylor, the former top American diplomat in Ukraine, whose testimony was released last week, asserted that Giuliani was actively undermining U.S. foreign policy.“The irregular channel seemed to focus on specific issues, specific cases, rather than the regular channel’s focus on institution building,” Taylor said, according to the transcript. “So the irregular channel, I think under the influence of Mr. Giuliani, wanted to focus on one or two specific cases, irrespective of whether it helped solve the corruption problem, fight the corruption problem.”Earlier Monday, news broke that Lev Parnas, an associate of Giuliani, will tell investigators that Giuliani attempted to leverage an official visit from Vice President Mike Pence to coax Ukraine into announcing an investigation into Joe Biden's son Hunter's business connections to Burisma.Rice also said she thought Trump’s mention of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who served on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma, during the call was “out of bounds.”“The call is murky, it is really murky. I don’t like for the president of the United States to mention an American citizen for investigation to a foreign leader,” Rice said.

Boeing says 737 MAX expected to resume flying in JanuaryBoeing on Monday said it expects the 737 MAX airplane, which was grounded after two crashes killed 346 people, to resume flying in January, delaying its return by one month. In a statement, the group said it still hopes to receive certification next month from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), allowing it to resume MAX deliveries to airline customers before the end of the year. "In parallel, we are working towards final validation of the updated training requirements, which must occur before the MAX returns to commercial service, and which we now expect to begin in January," Boeing said.

Joe Biden Leads in New Hampshire Poll: Campaign Update

Joe Biden Leads in New Hampshire Poll: Campaign Update(Bloomberg) -- Joe Biden has a small edge over other top Democrats among likely New Hampshire primary voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.Biden has the support of 20% of those surveyed, while Elizabeth Warren is at 16%. Pete Buttigieg is in third place at 15% and Bernie Sanders is in fourth at 14%. The margin of error for the poll, conducted Nov. 6-10, is 3.8%.This is the first Quinnipiac poll of New Hampshire, so there is no basis for comparison to previous surveys by the university’s polling unit. But the results differ from Real Clear Politics’ average of polls, which shows Biden, Warren and Sanders running neck-and-neck with Buttigieg a distant fourth.Just four other candidates notched more than 1% in the poll. Tulsi Gabbard at 6%, Andrew Yang at 4%, and Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer both at 3%. Of those surveyed, 14% said they were undecided.Buttigieg Says Military Prepared Him for Office (3:18 p.m.)Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Monday that his military service gave him the right experience to unite voters across the political spectrum.In a Veterans Day speech in Rochester, New Hampshire, the former Navy intelligence officer recalled being deployed to Afghanistan, where he “learned to trust with my life people with whom I had nothing in common except the flag Velcroed to” their uniforms.“One of the reasons I’m running for president is to be a commander-in-chief who actually knows what it’s like to be sent abroad on the orders of a president,” Buttigieg said. “The folks who got in my vehicle did not care whether I was a Democrat or a Republican or an Independent, they cared whether my M4 was locked and loaded. They just wanted to get home safe, like I did.”Buttigieg, the only veteran among the top-tier 2020 candidates, has been rising in the polls and is now in fourth place behind Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. He delivered his speech after a four-day swing in a state where 10% of adults are veterans, compared with a 6.6% national average.Earlier, Buttigieg released a policy plan that calls for a strong national defense strategy and provides health care and mental health coverage for all service members. As president, he said he would tackle veteran homelessness and increase federal oversight of privatized housing contractors, expand educational opportunities and support small business ventures for veterans. -- Misyrlena EgkolfopoulouButtigieg Accents His Service in Veterans’ Plan (7:52 a.m.)Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who served as a U.S. Navy intelligence officer in Afghanistan, released a comprehensive policy plan for veterans and service members Monday.“Our service members and their families deserve a commander-in-chief who understands and holds the service of our veterans sacred, and honors them in word and deed,” Buttigieg said in a statement.The plan calls for a strong national defense strategy and providing health care and mental health services for all service members through the candidate’s Medicare for All Who Want It health care proposal. As president, he said he would tackle veteran homelessness and increase federal oversight of privatized housing contractors, expand educational opportunities and support small business ventures for veterans.He also highlighted the need to support spouses and families of veterans, as well as women and LGBTQ service members, while cracking down on racial inequities in the military. The campaign didn’t provide an estimate of the cost of his proposals or indicate how they would be paid for.Buttigieg, who frequently mentions his military service on the campaign trail, will deliver a Veterans Day speech on Monday in New Hampshire Monday as part of a four-day bus tour through the state. -- Misyrlena EgkolfopoulouSanders Unveils Plan for Veterans’ Services (6 a.m.)Bernie Sanders presented a broad plan to overhaul health care and other government benefits provided to U.S. veterans, including a proposal to spend $62 billion over 10 years to modernize crumbling Veterans Administration medical facilities.The plan also would fill almost 50,000 vacancies for doctors, nurses and other positions at the Department of Veterans Affairs in the first year of a Sanders presidency.“As a nation, we have a moral obligation to provide the best quality care to those who put their lives on the line to defend us,” the Vermont senator said a statement. “Just as planes and tanks and guns are a cost of war, so is taking care of the men and women who we sent off to fight the wars.”Other components of the plan include expanded access to mental health and suicide prevention services, added long-term care services and a simplified claims process. The campaign did not say how the new proposal would be funded.The plan lets Sanders, who was chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee from 2013 to 2015, showcase a policy area where he’s had a bipartisan track record. He worked with the late Republican Senator John McCain on legislation that authorized 27 new medical facilities for veterans and provided $5 billion for more caregivers. -- Laura LitvanCOMING UPJoe Biden will take questions from Iowa voters at a town hall hosted by CNN on Monday.The major Democratic candidates -- including Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Sanders and Buttigieg -- are scheduled to appear Nov. 17 at the Nevada Democratic Party’s First in the West dinner, a major event that previously has drawn thousands to hear from presidential hopefuls.Ten candidates have qualified for the fifth Democratic debate, on Nov. 20 in Atlanta: Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, Cory Booker and Tom Steyer.\--With assistance from Laura Litvan and Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou.To contact the reporter on this story: Jennifer Epstein in Washington at jepstein32@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Wendy Benjaminson at wbenjaminson@bloomberg.net, Max Berley, Justin BlumFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Judge dismisses Trump lawsuit against NY over tax returns

Judge dismisses Trump lawsuit against NY over tax returnsA federal judge on Monday dismissed President Donald Trump's lawsuit against New York officials that was aimed at preventing the release of his tax returns. Judge Carl Nichols handed down a 19-page ruling, finding the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., does not have jurisdiction to hear the case. Trump sued New York's attorney general, tax commissioner and the House and Ways Means Committee in July, seeking an injunction to block the application of a New York state law known as the TRUST Act that could allow the Democratic-controlled House to obtain the tax returns.

Google Gathering Health Care Data on Millions of Americans with Secret ‘Project Nightingale’

Google Gathering Health Care Data on Millions of Americans with Secret ‘Project Nightingale’Google has teamed up with one of the largest health care systems in the U.S. to gather the personal health care information of millions of people in 21 states, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.Named "Project Nightingale," the initiative is one of the largest efforts by Silicon Valley tech companies to enter the lucrative health care industry. Google partnered last year with Ascension, the St. Louis-based health care system that is the second largest in the U.S., to collect and crunch health care data on a massive scale.Patients and doctors have not been notified that their data is being shared.The data involved includes lab results, doctor diagnoses and hospitalization records, as well as patient names and dates of birth. Google and Ascension are essentially collecting patients' complete personal health records. Patients and doctors have not been notified that their data is being shared.Google aims to design new software with the data that will suggest improvements in patient care directly to individual patients. Ascension, a Catholic hospital network, wants to use the data to improve patient care, mining the data to suggest additional tests for patients.According to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, hospitals may share patient data with business partners without notifying patients as long as that information is "used only to help the covered entity carry out its health-care functions.”Nevertheless, several Ascension employees voiced concerns regarding the ways Google and Ascension are gathering the data, according to internal documents reviewed by the Journal. While Ascension did not immediately comment on the report, a spokesman for Google said the project is completely in line with federal law.About 150 employees across Google's platform currently have access to specific personal data collected as part of Project Nightingale.The news comes as calls to rein in big tech companies grow more popular on both sides of the political aisle, albeit for somewhat different reasons.Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) has come out strongly against the involvement of big tech companies in the Chinese market and has campaigned against perceived bias against conservatives from these companies.Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has threatened to break up Facebook and other social media giants if she is elected president in 2020. She has suggested Facebook might help President Trump win reelection if that would profit the company.

Australia's Bushfires Are Getting Worse. And Climate Change Is to Blame

Australia's Bushfires Are Getting Worse. And Climate Change Is to Blame(Bloomberg) -- Sydney is facing a “catastrophic” fire danger on Tuesday -- the highest warning level that’s ever been issued for Australia’s largest city. As the country’s bushfire season becomes longer and more intense, the threat to lives and homes across the nation has grown.High temperatures and strong winds are expected to fan more than 50 fires burning across New South Wales state, with authorities warning that embers could be blown 30 kilometers from the numerous fire fronts and trigger more outbreaks.More than 3,000 firefighters were deployed or on standby across the state and hundreds of schools were closed as a precaution. Smoke haze settled in on Sydney and health authorities warned people with respiratory conditions and asthma to stay inside.Australia is the world’s driest inhabited continent and is considered one of the most vulnerable developed countries to global warming. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, climate change is increasing the frequency and severity of dangerous bushfire conditions, with the season starting significantly earlier in spring in southern and eastern parts of Australia.With three people dead and 150 homes destroyed in recent days, and almost million hectares of land burned this season, the fires have thrust the threat posed by global warming back into the headlines in a nation that gets the bulk of its energy from burning coal.Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government, a staunch supporter of the coal-mining industry and under fire from environmentalists for not doing more to curb emissions, has sidestepped the issue of climate change when asked about the bushfires.“We’ve had fires in Australia since time began, and what people need now is sympathy, understanding, help and shelter,” Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said in a radio interview Monday. “They don’t need the ravings of some pure, enlightened and woke capital-city greenies,” he added, using the colloquial nickname for environmentalists.(Updates with fires burning, health warning)\--With assistance from Hannah Dormido.To contact the reporter on this story: Edward Johnson in Sydney at ejohnson28@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Alyssa McDonald at amcdonald61@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
