Manafort trial: Rick Gates admits to committing crimes while working for former Trump campaign managerThe deputy of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has admitted to criminal activity while working for the political operative and told a court he helped him file false returns. On the fifth day of the trial of Mr Manafort, who has pleaded not guilty to 18 counts of bank and tax fraud and failing to disclose foreign bank accounts, prosecutors introduced the man they believe could be their star witness – the defendant’s 46-year-old right hand man and deputy, Rick Gates. Mr Gates told the court he was appearing as part of a plea deal, having agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election.

Suspected Russian spy caught working at US embassy in Moscow for more than a decade

Suspected Russian spy caught working at US embassy in Moscow for more than a decadeThe Russian woman had been hired by the US Secret Service and had access to the agency’s intranet and email systems before her clearance was reportedly revoked in the summer of 2017. The State Department’s resident agents alerted the Secret Service in January 2017, The Guardian was told, and at least nine high-ranking Secret Service officials were made aware of the findings. The CIA and FBI were also conducting separate inquiries at the time, but the paper said the Secret Service failed to take the lead, allowing her to continue working until her security clearance was revoked shortly before the Kremlin demanded the expulsion of US embassy staff.

Kim Jong-un 'blasts workers at factories for not working hard enough'

Kim Jong-un 'blasts workers at factories for not working hard enough'Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has lambasted workers at two textile factories for not working hard enough, failing to take care of their buildings and moaning about shortages of money and materials, according to state-run media. Mr Kim expressed his fury at the failing of workers at two factories in the city of Sinuiju, close to the border with China, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday.  At the Sinuiju Textile Mill, Mr Kim declared that the factory and its workers have supported the nation’s light industry sector since it was established in the 1950s – before condemning its present-day workforce for failing to live up to that “proud tradition”.  Instead of complaining about a lack of funds and equipment, the workers should put more effort into modernising their facilities by themselves. He added that the employees needed to increase their productivity. Kim Jong-Un visits the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP   On a subsequent visit to another nearby textile factory, Mr Kim criticised the staff for not making repairs to their crumbling buildings, saying the “precious” facilities looked more like a stable.  Management of the two facilities appear to have got off lightly, however, as Mr Kim is notorious for a short temper and draconian punishments for those that displease him.  Kim Jong-un inspects the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP In May 2015, the North Korean leader flew into a rage during a visit to the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm, which had been built on the orders of his father, after discovering a number of dead baby terrapins in the tanks. He was further incensed when managers admitted they had not been able to breed lobsters ahead of a national holiday marking the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea.  North Korean leader Kim Jong-un inspects some textiles while visiting the Sinuiju Textile Mill Credit: AFP KCNA reported that Mr Kim accused officials of “incompetence, an outmoded way of thinking and an irresponsible work style”. Despite the manager’s explanation that the terrapins had died due to electricity shortages, Mr Kim insisted the failings were down to bad management and had the man summarily shot.
