Nobel snub no obstacle in Greta Thunberg's climate quest

Nobel snub no obstacle in Greta Thunberg's climate questHours after judges passed her up for the Nobel Peace Prize, Greta Thunberg stood before a cheering throng, insisting once again that something must be done about climate change — and fast. “We as young people are tired of constantly being betrayed by those who are supposed to work for our greater good,” the 16-year-old Swedish activist told hundreds of supporters gathered in an outdoor ampitheater in Colorado’s largest city, Denver. “We are here because we care about the future, about what we one day will leave after us,” Thunberg, clad in a cream-colored jacket with her hair in her trademark braid, said to thunderous applause.

Rudy Giuliani's quest for dirt on Biden via Ukraine – a timeline

Rudy Giuliani's quest for dirt on Biden via Ukraine – a timelineA public claim by Trump’s personal lawyer that the former vice-president had acted improperly set off a troubling chain of eventsDonald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has coffee with Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnas at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, on Friday. Photograph: Aram Roston/Reuters 7 AprilRudy Giuliani alleges on Fox News that former vice-president Joe Biden was involved while in office in irregular activity in Ukraine. The lawyer claims Biden pressed for the dismissal of a top Ukrainian prosecutor who had been leading a corruption investigation into a gas company on whose board Biden’s son Hunter had served. 25 AprilBiden launches his presidential campaign. 1 MayThe New York Times reports that Giuliani has been urging Ukraine to conduct a new investigation into the activities of Joe and Hunter Biden. “Giuliani called Mr Trump excitedly to brief him on his findings,” the paper says. 10 MayGiuliani cancels a trip to Ukraine. He had planned to travel to Kiev to put pressure on President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky to reopen investigations, in the hope of dredging up dirt on the Bidens. The lawyer described the aim of his aborted visit as “meddling in an investigation” and admitted “somebody could say it’s improper”. 20 MayZelensky assumes the Ukrainian presidency. 25 JulyKey telephone call takes place, between Trump and Zelensky. The call now appears to be at the centre of the whistleblower complaint filed the following month. 12 AugustWhistleblower complaint is filed by a member of the intelligence community, raising an “urgent concern” relating to the president’s actions. 21 AugustGiuliani reveals that in August he travelled to Madrid to meet a top Ukrainian official, Andriy Yermak. He “strongly urged” Yermak to reinvestigate the Bidens, among other matters. “Just investigate the darn things,” Giuliani says he told the official. The lawyer insists he is acting as a “private citizen”, though it later emerges the meeting was arranged with the help of Kurt Volker, US envoy to Ukraine. 9 SeptemberLeading Democrats in Congress write to the White House counsel, Pat Cipollone, requesting all documents relating to any effort by Trump to put pressure on the Ukrainian government to help with his re-election bid. The letter accuses Trump and Giuliani of acting “outside legitimate law enforcement and diplomatic channels” to harm Biden’s campaign. 13 SeptemberAdam Schiff, Democratic chair of the House intelligence committee, subpoenas the Trump administration, demanding that the whistleblower complaint be handed over. Refusal to do so by the director of national intelligence, a Trump appointee, sparks an constitutional tug-of-war. 18 SeptemberThe Washington Post reveals that the whistleblower complaint concerns Trump’s “communications with a foreign leader” and a “promise” that was regarded as “troubling”. 19 SeptemberGiuliani is interviewed by Chris Cuomo on CNN and in a heated exchange at first denies that he asked Ukraine to investigate Biden. About 30 seconds later, he reverses himself. “Of course I did,” he says.

Mexican former minister detained, deepening president's anti-graft quest

Mexican former minister detained, deepening president's anti-graft questA judge ordered a former Mexican Cabinet minister to be detained pending a trial over suspected losses to taxpayers, her lawyer said on Tuesday, opening a new front in President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s campaign to eradicate corruption. The detention of former social development minister Rosario Robles is likely to ramp up scrutiny of the administration of Lopez Obrador’s predecessor, Enrique Pena Nieto, whose 2012-2018 presidency was plagued by graft scandals. Lopez Obrador has made rooting out corruption the cornerstone of his career, though he took office in December saying he did not want to rake through the past.
