Kellyanne Conway: Adam Schiff ‘Ought to Resign Today’ Over False Collusion Allegations

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 07:29

 Adam Schiff ‘Ought to Resign Today’ Over False Collusion AllegationsWhite House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday that House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff “ought to resign” in recognition that his oft-repeated claim of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was not born out by special counsel Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation.“You have Adam Schiff, talk about an oxymoron, this man heads the Intelligence Committee in the House,” Conway said, adding that Schiff once suggested that “that the scandal is of a size and a scope probably bigger than Watergate and that there is plenty of evidence of collusion.”“He ought to resign today,” she asserted. “He has been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years promising Americans that the president would be impeached or indicted.”Conway's comments come one day after attorney general William Barr delivered to Congress a four-page summary of the Mueller report, which revealed that the special counsel “did not find anyone with the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government.”Schiff, who has long-claimed that there is “plenty of evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, on Sunday clung to his previous assertions, saying that Mueller's inability to prove collusion beyond a reasonable doubt doesn't exonerate Trump.“There's a difference between compelling evidence of collusion and whether the special counsel concludes that he can prove beyond a reasonable doubt the criminal charge of conspiracy,” Schiff told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

Autonomy founder Lynch inflated sales before HP deal, court told

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 06:52

Autonomy founder Lynch inflated sales before HP deal, court toldBritish entrepreneur Mike Lynch artificially inflated revenue at his Autonomy software company before selling it to Hewlett Packard for $11 billion, the U.S. firm's lawyer told a London court on Monday. HP is suing Autonomy founder Lynch, once hailed as Britain's answer to Bill Gates, along with his former finance chief Sushovan Hussain for $5 billion after the 2011 deal went disastrously wrong for the Silicon Valley group. HP had bought big data firm Autonomy with the aim of making it the centerpiece of a plan to transform HP from a computer and printer maker into a software-focused enterprise services firm, a shift that rival IBM had already pulled off.

Pete Buttigieg: 2020 Democratic candidate surges to third place in new poll

 2020 Democratic candidate surges to third place in new pollPresidential candidate behind Joe Biden and Bernie SandersPete Buttigieg for president? Long-shot stands out in crowded field South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters. Photograph: Richard Shiro/AP Pete Buttigieg has surged to third place in a new poll of Democratic presidential candidates, ahead of Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Beto’Rourke. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters in an Emerson poll released on Sunday. Joe Biden had 25% support, with Bernie Sanders in second place with 24%. But the performance of Buttigieg, who has impressed in a series of TV appearances, is likely to serve as a warning to his better-known rivals. Buttigieg had 0% support in Emerson’s January poll, which was conducted just after he formed an exploratory committee. He has not yet formally declared he is running to take on Donald Trump next year but he has been widely praised for his performance in a CNN town hall and in high-profile interviews. He has met the 65,000-donor threshold that qualifies him to take part in the Democratic debates. Harris, a senator from California, had 10% support in the Emerson poll – which had a margin error of +/- 6.2% – while Warren of Massachusetts was in fourth place with 9%. Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman from Texas who has captured the attention of the public and the media with a combination of relentless charm and non-committal policy positions, was backed by 5% of likely voters. Now this'll get people talking...new Emerson poll of Iowa:• Biden - 25%• Sanders - 24%• Buttigieg - 11%• Harris - 10%• Warren - 9%...https://t.co/o4WHsyetvl— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) March 24, 2019 Buttigieg supports the Green New Deal proposal, a series of climate change reforms backed by progressive Democrats, and has said he is in favor of single-payer healthcare, an issue fast becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates. Were he elected, Buttigieg would be the first openly gay president. In South Carolina on Saturday, he told voters his marriage existed “by the grace of a single vote on the US supreme court”, and said it had brought him closer to God.
