first_imgAttorney General William Barr is threatening to not testify before the House Judiciary Committee this Thursday, as he and Congressional Democrats clash over the proposed format for questioning him about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.In response, New York Democratic Representative Jerrold Sadler, who serves as committee chairman, says, “The witness is not going to tell the committee how to conduct its hearing, period.” Sadler also told CNN that if Barr does not appear, “then we will have to subpoena him, and we will have to use whatever means we can to enforce the subpoena.”White House attorneys have already hinted that they plan to tell former White House counsel Donald McGahn II and other former officials to not comply with subpoenas from their testimonies. Last week, the Treasury Department allowed a deadline set by House Democrats to submit President Trump’s tax returns to pass.According to Norman Ornstein, a Congressional expert at the American Enterprise Institute, “This is part of this massive resistance by the Trump administration. It’s basically a middle finger to Congress and its powers, and we’re going to see what Congress does about it.”Nadler wants to allow each committee member to question Barr for five minutes. He also proposes a second round of questioning for both sides, and wants their attorneys to be present.A senior Justice Department official says Barr agree to appear before Congress but not its staff, and that he should therefore only be questioned by members of Congress.In addition, his plan calls for the committee to discuss the redacted sections of the special counsel’s report in a closed session, something to which Barr and the Justice Department object.Daniel Schwarz, Nadler’s spokesman, says, “It would be a shame if Barr refused to show, but it is important that there be a chance to ask follow-up questions, and members should not be prohibited from asking about redacted sections, which means we would need to go into executive session in order for Barr to be able to answer in a secure setting.”Questioning by staff members has previously been allowed during impeachment inquiries into presidents Nixon and Clinton, as well as in the investigation into the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails in 2016.last_img read more

first_imgShare Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020 Swedish gambling watchdog, Spelinspektionen, has issued a warning about the need to comply to current betting laws after a number of operators were found to be offering betting opportunities on football fixtures featuring players under the age of 18.Swedish law strictly prohibits the wagering of bets on matches featuring players or athletes who are not yet of a legal gambling age – which is currently 18. The game in question relates to a match that had taken place between IFK Göteborg and AIK in Sweden’s top-tier club competition, Allsvenska. “The regulations aim to protect the integrity of youth sports and is of importance to prevent people under the age of 18 being those looking to manipulate games, so-called match fixing,” Spelinspektionen said.“Spelinspektionen is very serious about such [offences] and has therefore initiated supervision of several companies regarding betting on players under the age of 18.”While Spelinspektionen did not specify the operators that had been found to be offering the betting opportunities, it was emphasised that each of the operators in question would be subject to special supervision from the regulator to ensure that they would not commit similar offences.The regulator has recently clamped down on “excessive gambling advertising” in Sweden after detailing plans to focus upon the  formalisation of a cooperation deal with the country’s Konsumentverket consumer agency.The new plans will split responsibilities between the two bodies, as well as formalise the forms of information exchange and consultation.
