Allen Weisselberg - Wikipedia

His former daughter in law Jen Weisselberg, who was married to Barry Weisselberg from 2004 until 2018, released to the Manhattan DA numerous documents that revealed how some Trump employees received compensation in real…
estate and other items. In 2008, Vance announced his intention to seek the District Attorney's office only if current District Attorney Robert Morgenthau decided to retire.

The character of District Attorney Adam Schiff (played by actor Steven Hill), the New York district
attorney in the long-running TV series Law & Order, was loosely based on Morgenthau. Morgenthau reportedly was a fan of the character.

Fishkill Farms is of historic significance primarily because its founder Henry Morgenthau, Jr. and his wife, Elinor Morgenthau were close and
enduring family friends of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. In the same years, Washington gossip linked Roosevelt romantically with New Deal administrator Harry Hopkins, with whom she worked closely. In 1931, Jesse I. Straus hired Hopkins as the executive director of New York's
Temporary Emergency Relief Administration. Herbert Straus, the sixth of seven children born to Isidor and Ida Straus (co-owners of retailers R. H. Macy & Co.), never lived in the house, and work on the house was canceled shortly before Straus's death in 1933. The Birch Wathen
School occupied the house from 1962 until 1989, when it was purchased for $13.2 million by the billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner. The identity of Soviet source cryptonymed "19" remains unclear. According to British writer Nigel West, "19" was president of Czechoslovak
government-in-exile Edvard Beneš. Military historian Eduard Mark and American authors Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindel concluded it was Roosevelt's aide Harry Hopkins.[34] According to American authors John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, "19" could be someone from the
British delegation to the Washington Conference in May 1943. Despite public accusations by Whittaker Chambers and others, Duggan's loyalty was attested to by such prominent people as Attorney General Tom C. Clark, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Duggan's close associate journalist
Edward R. Murrow, among others.[3] However, in the 1990s, evidence from decrypted Soviet telegrams revealed that he was an active Soviet spy for the KGB in the 1930s and 1940s. Venona and other recent information has shown, while the content of Julius' atomic espionage was not as
vital to the Soviets as alleged at the time of his espionage activities, in other fields it was extensive. The information Rosenberg passed to the Soviets concerned the proximity fuze, design and production information on the Lockheed P-80 jet fighter, and thousands of
classified reports from Emerson Radio. According to the Moynihan Commission on Government Secrecy, the complicity of both Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White is conclusively proven by Venona, stating "The complicity of Alger Hiss of the State Department seems settled. As
does that of Harry Dexter White of the Treasury Department." Kim Philby had access to CIA and FBI files, and more damaging, access to Venona Project briefings. When Philby learned of Venona in 1949, he obtained advance warning that his fellow Soviet spy Donald Maclean was in
danger of being exposed. The FBI told Philby about an agent cryptonymed "Homer", whose 1945 message to Moscow had been decoded. In 1928, the estranged Browder and his girlfriend Kitty Harris went to China and lived in Shanghai where Browder served as Secretary of the RILU's
Pan-Pacific Trade Union Secretariat, a clandestine labor organization working to unify the labor movement of Asia and the nations of the Pacific basin.

Watching The Watchmen

Meanwhile, Gregory Townsend, one of the lead prosecutors handling the cases against eight of the defendants in Michigan state court, was reassigned in May pending an attorney general audit into whether he had withheld evidence about…
deals cut with informants during a murder and arson trial in Oakland County in 2000. And on Sunday, in a matter apparently unrelated to the alleged kidnapping conspiracy, one of the lead FBI agents in the case, Richard J. Trask, was charged in state court in Kalamazoo with
assault with intent to do great bodily harm. According to court records, Caserta and his cohorts held field training exercises and plotted the kidnapping in the basement of a vacuum shop near Grand Rapids. The plot was foiled as undercover agents and an informant were

Jeffrey Toobin is back at CNN eight months after exposing himself on Zoom - CNN

Toobin was sidelined last October after what happened on the Zoom call became public.

People familiar with the matter said that Toobin exposed himself when he began…
masturbating during the Zoom, apparently as part of a different video call. The people said that they did not believe he intended his colleagues to witness it.

When Vice heard about the incident and reported it, Toobin admitted that he made an "embarrassingly stupid mistake,
believing I was off-camera."

Two people who were on the call told VICE separately that the call was an election simulation featuring many of the New Yorker's biggest stars: Jane Mayer was playing establishment Republicans; Evan Osnos was Joe Biden, Jelani Cobb was establishment

Robert Reich is eating his oatmeal and his shoes don't touch the kitchen floor. His tie hangs an inch and a half beneath his belt buckle, or just above his knees. He is not a dwarf. A dwarf is someone whose adult height is 4-10 or less as the result of a medical or genetic
condition, according to the Little People of America, a nonprofit group that supports people with short stature. "They wonder if he got a date to the prom, if he was ever picked for basketball in gym class." (Reich did attend his senior prom, and was always picked last for
basketball.) Reich "might be a familiar name," Goldman continues. "But he makes a convincing outsider, largely because of the stature issue."

Marc Rich (born Marcell David Reich; December 18, 1934 – June 26, 2013) was an international commodities trader, hedge fund manager,

Inside Blinken’s corporate work - POLITICO
— Microsoft: WestExec advised the company “on issues related to cyberspace and global efforts to better protect customers from cyberattacks,” a spokesperson said.

— Lazard: Blinken consulted with the investment…
bank’s health care team, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Haines advised JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft and Open Philanthropy, a nonprofit started by Facebook co-founder DUSTIN MOSKOVITZ and his wife, CARI TUNA.
And there could be more WestExec disclosures to come:
DAVID COHEN, a former deputy director of the CIA who went on to work for WestExec, is a contender to run the intelligence agency, and other WestExec alumni could find spots in the Biden administration, too.
