An FBI agent told jurors on Monday that Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann’s alleged evidence linking former President Trump to Russian bank Alfa strained credibility because no effort was ever made. was done to hide what Mr. Sussmann called secret communications.

Special Agent Scott Hellman was a prosecution witness in the case of Mr. Sussmann, who is on trial for lying to the FBI.

Prosecutors say he covered up his ties to the Clinton campaign when he presented an FBI attorney with now-debunked evidence claiming covert internet communication between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank.

Mr. Hellman, who oversees a team of cyber investigators, investigated the allegations, which the FBI later concluded were baseless. Investigators determined that the so-called secret communications were just marketing emails.

In his testimony, Mr. Hellman told the court that the evidence compiled by Mr. Sussmann and technical director Rodney Joffe did not match. He said the domain name used by the Trump Organization bore Mr. Trump’s name, suggesting that no effort had been made to hide the communications.

Mr Hellman said it would be “abnormal” for a presidential candidate to hide his communications using a domain with his own name. He also testified that Russia was a sophisticated actor who could hide his activities on the internet and yet no effort was made to hide the contacts.

“Based on the findings [Mr. Sussmann and Mr. Joffe] drawn that they were not fair or objective in the conclusions they reached,” he said. “The assumptions you have to make were so broad it didn’t make sense.”

Later, Mr. Hellman said his supervisor was also skeptical of the data. He told jurors that there was not enough data to draw some of the conclusions reached by Mr. Sussmann and Mr. Joffe.

“We disagreed with the narrative that came with it,” he said.

Defense attorneys for Mr. Sussmann are expected to cross-examine Mr. Hellman in the afternoon.

Za’Darius Smith

Not only does the Minnesota Vikings’ new EDGE rusher Za’Darius Smith get a chance to shine as a purple player for the first time in Week 1, but the former Green Bay Packer takes on his old team – the his birthday weekend.

Indeed, the Vikings host the Packers in Week 1 at US Bank Stadium, announced Thursday night when the NFL scrapped the 2022 schedule.

The Vikings have never hosted the Packers in a Week 1 game with fans in attendance, so everything about the date will be unique. In January, Minnesota fired general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer after the two went 15-18 over the past two seasons. Somehow, the Vikings had suddenly embraced mediocrity after six previous years of NFL Top-7 status by win-loss.

General manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and head coach Kevin O’Connell took over weeks later, and those two added a few key free agents in March, including the aforementioned Smith.

Here’s Smith’s triple motivation for Week 1 against the Packers:

  1. This is his first regular season game as a member of the Vikings.
  2. He plays the team that said “no thanks” for renewing his services.
  3. Smith turns 30 three days before the game.

What a weekend for the new defender.

Smith found his way to the Vikings after courting as a free agent for the Baltimore Ravens, his first NFL franchise. He played four seasons in Baltimore before joining the Packers in 2019. With the Ravens, Smith was a decent defender, growing and maturing on John Harbaugh’s defense.

But when he arrived in Green Bay, Smith became a superstar. He immediately earned Pro Bowl recognition for the first time in his career, in 2019 and 2020, acting as a thorn in the side of the Vikings along the way. Yet in 2021, Smith suffered a back injury and missed most of the season.

As a result, the cash-strapped Packers opted not to retain Smith, so the Kentucky alum tested free agency. He was only minutes away from joining the Ravens but eventually chose the other purple team.

Vikings free agent moves get ominous rating from critics

In 2019 and 2020, Smith ranked third in the NFL in sacks behind only TJ Watt and Shaquil Barrett. When healthy, Smith is a sack dealer, and the Vikings will pair Smith with another quarterback bully, Danielle Hunter.

The Vikings are the first 2.5-point home underdog against the Packers in Week 1.

Samuel Rosenberg “Sam” Schnydman, a retired financial advisor and insurance agent, died of complications from Parkinson’s disease May 8 at St. Agnes Hospital. The Locust Point resident was 81.

Born in Baltimore and raised on Vickers Road in Ashburton, he was the son of Rubie Schnydman, vice president of the Little Potts furniture company, and his wife, Florine “Flo” Rosenberg, a homemaker. He graduated from Baltimore City College in 1958 and enjoyed sports, including lacrosse and football. He graduated from what is now known as the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Schnydman described his profession as a “commission salesman”. He often spoke of the “joy and fun” of the financial industry, meaning there were good times and bad times.

He had a strong work ethic.

“Everything was urgent for Sam,” Mr O’Connell said. “If he told someone he was going to follow, that’s what he did. He knew his families and remembered their birthdays. He attended their funeral.

“I met Sam in 1993 and we became friends,” the reverend said. William J. Watters, former pastor of St. Ignatius Church in Mount Vernon. “He read spiritual books.

On April 13, 2022, Judge Crane of the New York County Commercial Division issued a decision in Qatar v First Abu Dhabi Bank Pjsc2022 NYLJ LEXIS 410, ruling that a motion to dismiss a claim against a foreign bank for lack of jurisdiction should be granted when the only contact the bank had with New York was supposed to submit quotes to online trading platforms accessible worldwide and the maintenance of two corresponding bank accounts in the state, indicating:

“[A] The New York court cannot exercise personal jurisdiction over a non-domiciliary unless two conditions are met: the action is authorized under the Long Arm Law (CPLR 302) and the exercise of jurisdiction is consistent with due process” (Williams v. Beemiller, Inc., 33 NY3d 523, 528 [2019]). “If the law or the constitution [*4] prerequisite is lacking, the action may not take place” (id.).

Under CPLR 302(a)(1), “a court may exercise personal jurisdiction over any non-domiciled person…who, in person or through an agent…carries on commercial transactions in the State” (CPLR 302 [a] [1]). It is a “one-act statute”, which means that “evidence of a transaction in New York is sufficient to invoke jurisdiction, even if the defendant never enters New York, so long as the defendant’s activities here were intentional and that there is a substantial connection between the transaction and the asserted claim” (Kreutter v. McFadden Oil Corp., 71 NY2d 460, 467 [1988]). “Deliberate activities are those whereby a defendant, by voluntary acts, ‘envokes the privilege of carrying on activities within the forum state, thereby invoking the benefits and protections of its laws'” (Whitcraft v. Runyon, 123 AD3d to 812).

Jurisdiction under CPLR 302(a)(1) is not appropriate. Plaintiff alleges that Samba “transacted in New York” by submitting FOREX rate trading quotes for Qatari currency and bonds through trading accounts with Bloomberg and Reuters “on platforms and data centers located in New York County”. Plaintiff argues that Samba’s use of the platforms [*5] and data centers (servers), offered by Bloomberg and Reuters, for submitting foreign exchange quotes constitute business transactions in New York. Through the assertion of Abdullah Omar Al-Marshad, a rates trader employed by Samba, Samba claims that its traders use the services of Bloomberg and Reuters from Samba offices in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (Doc 36 ).

Data submission [international rates quotes] by traders from foreign countries to globally accessible Internet trading platforms do not, without more, constitute “intentional activities” in New York, whether or not the data or platforms were maintained on servers located in New York (see Sonterra Capital Master Fund Ltd. v Credit Suisse Group AG, 277 F Supp 3d 521, 590 [SDNY 2017] [noting that “the happenstance that the electronic communications of defendants acting abroad were routed through a server in the United States cannot substantially contribute to a finding of sufficient contacts with the United States,” and ”

Furthermore, although Samba has two correspondent bank accounts in New York, there are no allegations in [*6] the grievance that these pen pal accounts played a role in the allegedly criminal acts. “[S]By itself, a correspondent banking relationship, without any other clues or evidence to explain its essence, may not form the basis of long-term competence” (Amigo Foods Corp. v. Marine Midland Bank-NY, 39 NY2d 391, 396 [1976]). Here, the plaintiff does not allege any facts from which the court can infer that the corresponding accounts played a role in the alleged fraudulent scheme, let alone caused the alleged harm.

Before anyone considers what unrestricted free agent forwards Steve Yzerman, Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman might pursue, the question that needs to be answered: Why would a free agent come to Detroit?

Not always, but generally the money is similar no matter where the player signs. With some older players, an NHL team may get their attention by offering an extra year to their contract.

But what most free agents are looking for is the gig money to play a starring role in a Stanley Cup contender. The Red Wings can provide the money and a chance to play a starring role. But they may not be in contention for another three seasons. Not what a player in their late twenties or early thirties wants to hear.

As a rebuilding team, the Red Wings won’t be chasing older stars like Patrice Bergeron, Evgeni Malkin and Claude Giroux. But the Red Wings need help at center, and they wouldn’t mind another scorer.

“So much uncertainty, and then we had free agency on July 13,” Yzerman said. “I have this nice list of great players who would be a good fit for our organization. Can I get any of these players? I have no idea at this stage.

The Red Wings won’t take a deep dive into free agents. It’s too early. But Steve Yzerman knows his team needs to be more competitive than it was last season.

Here are some potential unrestricted forwards the Red Wings could consider:

Vince Trocheck Center, Carolina Hurricanes

He has Michigan roots. Born in Pittsburgh, moved to Detroit at age 13. Performed in the Little Caesars program. His Ontario Hockey League career was spent in Saginaw and Plymouth. More importantly, he has scored 51 points this season. He has scored 20 or more goals on four occasions. Trocheck also recorded 185 hits this season. Would be a significant upgrade over Pius Suter at center No. 2. Trocheck offers courage and fire. Very good on faceoffs. He’s been 54.4% for Carolina the past three seasons. Quality defensive player. Difficult to play against. The downside is that he will be 29 this summer.

Center or wing Andrew Copp, New York Rangers

Grew up in Ann Arbor. Played quarterback for Ann Arbor Skyline. But he was more accomplished in hockey. Played at the University of Michigan. He’s 6-foot-1, 210 pounds and the Red Wings want more height at No. 2 center. Copp can play all three forward positions. Maybe he wants to perform in front of his friends and family. The downside is that he has played extremely well with the New York Rangers since they acquired him from Winnipeg. Rumor has it that Rangers will make him a big offer after the season. He enjoyed his stay there.

Center or left wing Nick Paul, Tampa Bay Lightning

He’s a 6-foot-3, 228-pound forward who has scored 16 goals and 106 hits this season. He could give the Red Wings more bite while participating offensively. He only earned $1.5 million last season. The Lightning probably can’t afford to sign him, although they could move players to keep him.

Right wing Filip Forsberg, Nashville Predators

File this one under long shots. Top contenders will pursue him. But the Red Wings have the leeway to pay him the salary the Predators don’t seem to want to give him. The Red Wings can also play the Swedish card. He could be part of a team that has six or seven Swedes in a few seasons.

Center Ryan Strome, New York Rangers

Averaged 54 points per season over the past three seasons for the Rangers. Had his best result this season with 21 goals. But he plays with Artemi Panarin. How much does that inflate his numbers? Strome definitely has talent.

Left winger Ondrej Palat, Tampa Bay Lightning

He is 31 years old, but he is a regular offensive player. Palat had 49 points last season. Yzerman knows him well from his days as general manager of Tampa Bay. Assuming Palat believes in what Yzerman can do, could Palat be a short-term fix on a short-term deal?

Left or right winger Valeri Nichushkin, Colorado Avalanche

He’s 6-foot-4 and the Red Wings want to add some height. He is 27 years old and his game is just beginning. Intriguing roll of the dice. He had 25 goals and 89 hits last season. You might not have to break the bank to land it. He is coming out of a $2.5 million contract.

Left or right winger Andre Burakovsky, Colorado Avalanche

He just turned 27 three months ago and has averaged 20 goals per season in his last three seasons with Colorado. He is 6-3 and has 61 points this season.

Right wing Ilya Mikheyev, Toronto Maple Leafs

The 27-year-old former KHL undrafted player just keeps getting better. He’s scored 21 goals this season for the Maple Leafs, who may not have enough room to keep him. The 6-2 striker scored his 21 goals in an average of 15 minutes per game. Like to hit.

Left winger Andrei Kuzmenko, St. Petersburg, KHL

Reports indicate that at least 20 teams are pursuing the undrafted free agent from the Kontinental Hockey League. Surely the Red Wings have some interest. Kuzmenko has 20 goals and 53 points in 45 games this season. He is only 26 years old. The downside is that KHL players seem to have mixed results. Some of the best KHL players are successful in the NHL and some are not. Additionally, reports have linked Kuzmenko to Vancouver, Edmonton, Nashville and Toronto. There is no mention of the Red Wings.

PHILADELPHIA – U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams announced that Michael George, 31, of Broomall, PA, was sentenced today to seven years and six months in prison and three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay $4,790 in forfeiture and restitution by United States District Judge Joel H. Slomsky for committing four bank robberies in approximately one week in March 2020.

In December 2021, the defendant pleaded guilty to four counts of bank robbery in connection with three incidents at banks in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia and one on the main line in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. George admitted to robbing TD Bank on East Butler Street in Philadelphia on March 7, 2020; Wells Fargo Bank on Aramingo Avenue in Philadelphia on March 16, 2020; WSFS Bank on Aramingo Avenue in Philadelphia on March 16, 2020; and the PNC Bank on Youngsford Road in Gladwyne on March 17, 2020. During each robbery, George threatened a bank employee with death for failing to comply with his demand for money; he stole a total of almost $4,800 from the banks.

“This defendant terrified and threatened the lives of bank employees who were just doing their job,” US Attorney Williams said. “He is clearly a danger to the community – not stopping at one flight but increasing to four in a matter of days. This case shows why our All Hands On Deck initiative is so important: we investigate and prosecute the most violent criminals to get them off the streets and behind bars. »

“Michael George was a crime spree in itself, responsible for four bank robberies in 10 days,” said Jacqueline Maguire, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia division. “He threatened the bank employees he was victimized, making them fear for their lives. It was imperative to get him off the streets quickly before anyone was physically harmed. This sentence nipped in the bud his budding career as a bank robber and holds him accountable for his wrongdoing.The FBI and our partners are committed to making our communities safer by bringing these violent offenders to justice.

The case has been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Lower Merion Police Department, and the Philadelphia Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kevin Jayne.

Several important steps were taken in the African tech ecosystem in April.

From MTN’s PSB license approval and Airtel’s super-agent license in Nigeria, to Sun King’s $260m fundraising in Kenya and CAR’s adoption of crypto Here are the 10 biggest tech moves in April.

In April, startups across the continent raised $413,143,000 over 38 fully disclosed* offers.

This means April ranks lowest in terms of funding announcements, 41% (~$296M) lower than what was announced in March and 34% (~$216M) lower than February announcement.

By sector, the first 3 sectors are energy-tech, fintech and logistics. Energy leads with $289,800,000 (70.1%); fintech with $53,500,000 (12.9%); and logistics with $34,000,000 (8.2%).

By region, East Africa leads with increases announced in April 2021, with Sun King’s $260 million Series D increase leading the 4 increases announced. West Africa comes second with $90.5 million pledged across 18 funding deals. North Africa is next with startups from Egypt and Morocco announcing a combined total raised of $39.3 million across 11 deals.

The top 5 leaked deals of the month are:

  • Sun King’s $260 million Series D fundraising to expand in Africa and Asia.
  • Nigerian logistics start-up Sabi’s $20m funding round.
  • $19 million seed round from Egyptian energy technology company Pylon.
  • Umba’s $15 million seed round to expand its digital bank into new markets.
  • Ghanaian agritech Farmerline’s $12.9m pre-Series A round.

*Note: This data only includes funding deals announced in April 2022. Increases are often announced later than when deals are actually closed.

These figures exclude the Bboxx/PEG Africa acquisition agreement, the figures of which remain to be confirmed. It also excludes estimated grants from accelerators like Techstars or Y-Combinator.

This month, a slew of good news arrived for the mobile money sector in Anglophone and Francophone West Africa.

Nigerian telecom arms MTN and Airtel have made significant strides in accelerating the adoption of mobile money in the country.

First, MTN received final approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to operate a payment services bank in the country.

A few weeks later, Airtel secured a super-agent license from CBN that will allow it to recruit agents for agency banking and provide essential financial services to customers through a third-party agent network for the financial institutions account.

Meanwhile, in Senegal, fintech unicorn Wave has secured an e-money license from the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) to expand its mobile money services in the country.

Africa’s most popular startup, Flutterwave, faced a series of heavy charges in March.

Following an article by journalist David Hundeyin, the co-founder and CEO of F Olugbenga Agboola has been charged with insider trading, fraud and sexual harassment.

Agboola, as well as former CEO Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, also mentioned in the article, also responded to some of the allegations.

In March, Google’s undersea Internet cable landed in Togo.

Following this announcement, the 12,000+km cable meandered to Lagos, Nigeria in April, then to Namibia, Saint Helena – a British territorial island west of Angola – and finally Africa from South.

The cable is part of Google’s billion-dollar plan to provide affordable internet access in Africa by building global infrastructure to help bring faster internet to more people and lower connectivity costs.

In April, the Central African Republic (CAR) became the first African country to adopt bitcoin – and all other forms of cryptocurrency – as legal tender.

It is also the second country in the world, after El Salvador, to take this measure.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has fined 3 of the country’s commercial banks for flouting a cryptocurrency trading restriction imposed a year ago.

The 3 banks – Stanbic IBTC, Access Bank and United Bank for Africa (UBA) – were fined a total of ₦800m (~$1.9m) for operating accounts used for trading in crypto.

This is the most recent development of the current crypto trading restriction in Nigeria.

Twitter may not be an African company, but everyone has business there.

In April, the billionaire and CEO of Tesla bought Twitter for $44 billion.

There is a not-so-funny story behind Elon’s takeover, however.

First, Musk got an individual majority stake in Twitter, then he got an invitation to join the board, which he declined after realizing he couldn’t own Twitter if he accepted the offer. ‘offer.

Musk has also been sued by other investors for failing to disclose his holdings to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). After the decline, Musk also offered to buy all of Twitter’s stock in a veiled threat that could have sent Twitter’s stock prices crashing. Twitter in turn adopted a poison pill before succumbing to Musk’s charm offer.

Many good things await Kenya. The country announcement a digital 10-year plan in April.

E-commerce giant Amazon has also announced the launch of an Amazon Web Services local zone in the country.

Visa has opened its first Africa innovation studio in Nairobi and Google has announced plans to launch its first product development center on the continent in the capital as well.

A year after launching its operations in South Africa, the Chinese ride-hailing giant, Didi Chixung, has ended its operations in South Africa.

The ride-sharing company has faced fierce competition from Bolt and Uber, and its expansion has also been married to South Africa’s third wave of COVID, which has prompted another lockdown.

Global Product Manager Ebi Atawodi has taken yet another important step.

Last year, Atawodi announced her move from her position as Head of Products, Payments and Financial Products at Uber to Netflix, where she served as Director of Products, Payments MEA.

In April, Atwodi took yet another important step. After a year at Netflix, she joined Google where she now serves as Director of Product Management for YouTube Studio.
