What Is The Massive Document Leak Known As The Paradise Papers?

.

An enormous document leak of over 13 million files was revealed on Sunday, in what is being collectively referred to as the Paradise Papers. It’s one of the biggest data leaks in history, and involves the elaborate offshore assets of top politicians and corporations, as well as some of the world’s wealthiest individuals and celebrities.

Millions of the leaked files come from a single company, Appleby, which is based in Bermuda and offers offshore legal services. Appleby has denied any wrongdoing in relation to the findings from the documents.

The Paradise Papers closely resemble a document leak from last year known as the Panama Papers, which also detailed the offshore holdings and tax avoidance schemes of some of the world’s most powerful people.

The Panama Papers caused a significant international fallout when they were released in April 2016, even leading to the resignation of Iceland’s prime minister amid protests and the surrounding controversy. The effects of this new Paradise Papers leak remain to be seen, but it has already put increased scrutiny on high-profile figures including U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Queen Elizabeth II.

Two additional women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), including an Army veteran who says she was groped while deployed overseas and a former elected official who told a news outlet that he tried to kiss her.

The women’s accounts bring the number of accusers against the senator to six as of Thursday.

Army veteran Stephanie Kemplin, 41, of Maineville, Ohio, told CNN that in 2003 she was posing with the then-comedian for a photo in Kuwait, where he was visiting troops with the USO, when he cupped her breast.

The women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault are patiently awaiting his undoing. 

Three of the 16 women who have accused Trump of some form of sexual assault spoke to People on Thursday. The women discussed what it’s been like for them as more and more men in power are being publicly condemned for accusations of sexual misconduct in the wake of the #MeToo movement. 

Journalist Natasha Stoynoff, who accused Trump of assaulting her in 2005 while she was attempting to conduct an interview with him, told People she feels the accusations against him have been “on hold.” 

“It’s been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker,” she said. “But now the heat’s on and it’s going to boil and the lid is going to blast off.”

No One Was Indicted In The Tamir Rice Case. That Was The Plan All Along.

For the first time since Tamir Rice was shot and killed by the Cleveland police last year, the prosecutor in the case ran from the press.

After announcing the grand jury’s decision on Monday not to indict anyone in the 12-year-old’s death, Cuyahoga County prosecutor Timothy McGinty simply left and didn’t take any questions.

McGinty did acknowledge that the outcome “will not cheer anyone,” and offered a more-or-less correct view about what the law demands of police officers making split-second decisions when they fear for their lives.

“It would be irresponsible and unreasonable if the law required a police officer to wait and see if the gun was real,” McGinty said, in reference to the toy gun the 12-year-old held as officer Timothy Loehmann perceived a threat he felt left him no choice but to shoot.

Sotomayor Says Supreme Court Has ‘Shoot First, Think Later’ Approach To Cop Violence

The Supreme Court for a number of years has sided with cops in police brutality cases.

The justices did it again Monday, issuing an unsigned summary decision granting immunity to a Texas officer who shot and killed a motorist fleeing police, even though the officer lacked training or even specific orders to open fire.

In so many words, the court ruled the shooting death was legally justified.

The case arose from a civil rights lawsuit against Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Chadrin Mullenix, who wasn’t involved in the chase but had responded to a checkpoint along its route to help intercept a vehicle driven by Israel Leija. Leija was wanted on an arrest warrant, and had fled when police officers tried to serve the warrant at a Sonic restaurant.

Am avut revelaţia că în afară de Dumnezeu nu există adevăr. Mai multe adevăruri, zic eu, raportate la Dumnezeu, este egal cu niciun adevăr. Iar dacă adevărul este unul singur, fiind transcendent în esenţă, sediul lui nu e nici în ştiinţă, nici în filozofie, nici în artă.– Petre Țuțea
