Gunman kills at least two in French Christmas market and fleesWith France still on high alert after a wave of attacks commissioned or inspired by Islamic State militants since early 2015, the counter-terrorism prosecutor opened an investigation. Amid fast-moving, confusing scenes it was not clear if the suspect, identified by police as Strasbourg-born Chekatt Cherif, 29, had been cornered by commandos or had slipped the dragnet. "There was confusion initially but they locked the front doors pretty soon after the gunshots," said U.S. citizen Elizabeth Osterwisch, who was sheltering on the top floor of the Galeries Lafayette department store.

Gilets Jaunes Come to Brexit Britain’s Rescue
Date/Time: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 06:40:37 -0500

Gilets Jaunes Come to Brexit Britain’s RescueThe gilets jaunes’ protests in France have caused a pretty stunning volte face from President Emmanuel Macron, with more than 10 billion euros ($11.4 billion) of minimum wage and pension tax changes proposed this week. Alongside France’s already-announced reversal of a fuel tax rise, this could increase France’s deficit by as much as 0.6 percentage points to about 3.4 percent of gross domestic product. “Le spread” of 10-year French government bonds to German bunds has widened by 10 basis points in December, creating the biggest gap since Macron was elected in May 2017.

Michael Cohen jailed for three years as he says it was his duty to cover up Donald Trump's 'dirty deeds'
Date/Time: Wed, 12 Dec 2018 12:08:58 -0500

Michael Cohen jailed for three years as he says it was his duty to cover up Donald Trump's 'dirty deeds'Michael Cohen issued a stinging rebuke of his former boss Donald Trump on Wednesday as he was sentenced to three years in prison, insisting it had been his job to cover up Mr Trump’s “dirty deeds”.  Cohen, who served as Mr Trump’s lawyer and fixer for a decade, likened his sentencing to a moment of “freedom” as he would no longer be bound by his relationship to his former employer. The sentence hearing followed Cohen pleading guilty earlier this year to four crimes: tax evasion, lying to a financial institution, lying to Congress and breaking campaign finance laws.  The last of those involved paying two women who claimed affairs with Mr Trump – porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal – to stay quiet before the 2016 presidential election. Cohen has claimed in court that Mr Trump directed the payments - something the US president has denied. Mr Trump has also suggested such payments would not amount to crimes. Michael Cohen served as Donald Trump's personal lawyer for a decade Credit: AP Appearing in a New York federal court on Wednesday, Cohen appeared to fight back tears at times as he made his case for leniency while his parents, children, wife and in-laws watched on.  “This may seem hard to believe but today is one of the most meaningful days of my life," Cohen said. "The irony is today is the day I get my freedom back. I have been leading a personal and mental incarceration ever since the fateful day that I accepted the offer to work for a famous real estate mogul whose business acumen I greatly admired." He accepted “full responsibility” for his crimes, but added of Mr Trump: “It was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds.” Cohen said he would not be remembered as “the villain" when a history of Mr Trump is written. There was also an apology to the American people, with Cohen acknowledging that “you deserve to know the truth and lying to you was unjust”.  The comments underscored Cohen's remarkable about-turn this year, from Mr Trump’s most ardent defender who boasted he would “take a bullet” for the US president to an open and hostile critic.  Cohen had hoped that his co-operation with the Russian election meddling investigation, being led by special counsel Robert Mueller, would spare him jail time for his crimes.  However New York federal prosecutors, who along with Mr Mueller’s team pursued the cases, chastised Cohen for not fully co-operating by revealing all about his past behaviour. William Pauley, a US district judge, said that Cohen should get “some credit” for his part co-operation but that it was not enough to “wipe the slate clean”.  “Mr Cohen appears to have lost his moral compass," Judge Pauley said, adding, that he had committed a "veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct" motivated by "personal greed and ambition".  He suggested that Cohen’s actions amounted to an “insidious crime to our democratic institutions” and insisted his sentence needed to act as a deterrent.  Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay close to $2 million in fines and other financial penalties. He closed his eyes and shook his head as the sentence was read.  The three years was at the lower end of sentencing recommendations. Cohen must voluntarily surrender on March 6 – raising the prospect of striking a new co-operation agreement with prosecutors before that date.  Mr Trump played down the significance of the hush money payments in an interview with Reuters before the sentencing, saying they did not amount to campaign contributions.  “Michael Cohen should have known what he was doing. I hope he did. My lawyers say frankly that everything he did was fine,” Mr Trump said.
