US government warns workers paid by mistake not to spend money during shutdown

US government warns workers paid by mistake not to spend money during shutdownAs hundreds of thousands of federal workers fretted on Friday about how they will pay bills amid the partial government shutdown, the missed pay-checks turned out to be particularly cruel for nearly three dozen employees at one obscure government agency. Because of an apparent clerical error, a federal division that processes pay-checks for a big chunk of the government workforce mistakenly paid about 30 employees at the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board. The District of Columbia-based board investigates industrial chemical accidents, but nearly all of the board’s employees have been furloughed during the government shutdown.

Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probe

Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probeSpecial prosecutor Robert Mueller has recommended a former foreign policy aide to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign be jailed for up to six months for lying to the FBI. George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to the charge in 2017 as part of a plea deal in one of the first indictments handed down by the FBI and Mr Mueller’s team as part of the investigation into alleged collusion between the campaign team and Russian officials. Prosecutors said in court filings the former aide severely hindered the early days of the investigation because he lied “at least a dozen” times in a January 2017 interview with the FBI about his contacts with a professor called Joseph Mifsud.
