Former Trump adviser Flynn says he knew lying to the FBI was a crime

Former Trump adviser Flynn says he knew lying to the FBI was a crimePresident Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn said on Tuesday he knew lying to the FBI was a crime as he stood by his guilty plea in a case stemming from the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia. Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI agents about his conversations with Sergei Kislyak, Russia ambassador in Washington at the time. In a filing with the court, a lawyer for Flynn had noted that he was not warned during an FBI interview that lying would be a crime, but an attorney for Flynn told the court on Tuesday during a sentencing hearing that the retired lieutenant general was not entrapped.

No one can 'dictate' to China what it should, shouldn't do: Xi

No one can 'dictate' to China what it should, shouldn't do: XiPresident Xi Jinping vowed Tuesday to push ahead with China's "reform and opening up" but warned that no one can "dictate" what it does, as the Communist Party celebrated the policy's 40th anniversary. While he pledged to press forward with the economic reforms initiated under late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping in December 1978, Xi indicated that there would be no change to the one-party system. "The leadership of the Communist Party of China is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics and the greatest advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics," he said.

New Zealand warns Google after internet giant breaches court order in Grace Millane murder case

New Zealand warns Google after internet giant breaches court order in Grace Millane murder caseNew Zealand warned Google to "take responsibility" for its news content on Wednesday, after the internet giant broke a court order suppressing the name of a man charged with murdering a British backpacker. Jesse Kempson, 26, has been charged with the murder of Grace Millane, a 22-year-old from Essex who was last seen alive in Auckland on December 1. A week later, her body was found in the Waitakere Ranges 10 metres away from the road. The defendant's name is not allowed to be published in New Zealand. The judge refused  to grant a suppression order, but the media are not allowed to name him because the accused sought to appeal. But Google revealed his identity in an email to subscribers of its "what’s trending in New Zealand?" service. Justice Minister Andrew Little said the breach was unacceptable and he had made his views known to Google executives at a meeting in parliament on Tuesday night. While Google has argued the breach was inadvertent and it was unaware of the court order when the automatically generated email went out, Mr Little said that was not good enough. Judge Evangelos Thomas granted the suspect interim name suppression this month pending appeal Credit: Getty "I put the ball back in their court," he told commercial radio on Wednesday. "If they choose to set up their algorithms and distribute news, they’ve got to take responsibility for that." Mr Little said he met two local Google executives, and a senior legal counsel from the company’s California headquarters joined them by video. He said they appeared genuinely concerned about the breach and assured him they were working to ensure it did not happen again, with another meeting scheduled for early 2019 to assess their progress. Mr Little conceded that controlling information on the internet and social media was challenging but said court orders were made for a reason and must be respected. "We can’t just stand back and say this is all too hard," he said. "The price of that (would be) we have to capitulate and concede what are very important rights that anyone going through the courts has." He said the case highlighted the potential need for an international agreement if Google "won’t do anything (or) can’t do anything" to resolve the issue. "They can expect us to talk to partner countries around the world who have a similar interest... about reaching an agreement to enforce each others’ orders in each others’ countries," he said. "That may well happen inevitably anyway because it’s not just Google, there are others as well and we have to protect the integrity of our court system."
