Unfortunately, Google sends unrelated departments to answer questions those people wouldn’t technically know anything about. Google comes out looking clean while Sen Cruz looks like he’s chasing butterflies. They structured their company into all of these independent cells. They can just cut them loose and deny they knew anything about it. They are structured like a criminal enterprise.

According to MLCI’s admissions, beginning by at least 2008 and continuing through 2014, precious metals traders employed by MLCI schemed to deceive other market participants by injecting materially false and misleading information into the precious metals futures market.

Over the relevant period, the traders placed thousands of fraudulent orders...

John Sanders had been acting as head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection since its commissioner, Kevin McAleenan, was tapped to take over as acting Homeland Security secretary in April. He had been its chief operating officer and a longtime ally of Mr. McAleenan’s...

Hogg, 19, told The Washington Post in an article published on Tuesday that the attempts to end his life came from people who are "misguided and misinformed of what we’re actually here to talk about." He said that if someone were to kill him because of his efforts to curb gun violence, it would most likely be "the stupidest thing they could do to try to end the movement. Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it would invigorate us and create f---ing change."
The undercover investigation started Jan. 1 and was called “Operation Trade Secrets.” The sting focused on hotels, motels, spas, massage parlors, strip clubs, adult bookstores and sex trade activities in Hillsborough County, Chronister said.

Competitors of Google are doing everything they can to try and help the Justice Department in their probe, including readying documents and data in anticipation of meetings with regulators.
...rival companies are stepping up their lobbying in the United States, where antitrust investigations have been divided among the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission.

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #36 posted a letter to its Facebook page on Monday. The letter says Buttigieg has doted on the victims of one shooting while ignoring several others in his community, ostracizing the other victims.

Chicago-based AbbVie, which makes the world’s best-selling drug Humira, for rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, said it would pay $120.30 in cash and a portion of AbbVie stock for each Allergan share.
