Obama to Asians worried about U.S. election: It's going to be OK

U.S. President Barack Obama attends a town hall meeting with members of the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative at the GEM Center in Ho Chi Minh City, VietnamBy Matt Spetalnick HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama sought on Wednesday to ease growing Asian worries about the raucous election campaign to succeed him which has been dominated by the incendiary rhetoric of mogul Donald Trump, now the Republican Party's nominee. "I think other people sometimes look at our election system and say 'what a mess'," Obama told a townhall meeting with young leaders in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. Obama made the comments just before ending a three-day trip to Vietnam, whose high point was an announcement that Washington's ban on sales of lethal weapons to the country - a vestige of the Vietnam War - would be completely lifted.

Trump moneyman’s shady history

Trump moneyman’s shady historyOne of six vice-chairs of the “Trump Victory Leadership Team,” a joint fundraising effort announced Tuesday by the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, pleaded guilty in 2009 to criminal charges involving bribes paid to top New York State officials. Elliott Broidy, a Los Angeles venture capitalist, was charged with showering nearly $1 million in gifts and favors on state officials as part of a scheme to win more than $250 million in state pension investments for the venture capital firm he then headed, Markstone Capital. Sean Spicer, the RNC’s communications director, dismissed questions about Broidy’s background, comparing it to that of New York investment figure Steve Rattner, a top Democratic moneyman who held a recent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and was caught up in the same “pay for play” scandal.

Democrats, seeking unity, give Sanders say in party platform

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks in East Los AngelesBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Democratic Party said on Monday it would give U.S. presidential contender Bernie Sanders a prominent say in writing its platform this year, a gesture that could ease tensions between Sanders' camp and party leaders, whom Sanders has accused of favoring rival Hillary Clinton. Sanders has remained steadfast in his long-shot battle with Clinton for the Democratic nomination for the Nov. 8 presidential election, even though he lags her in the delegate count with only a few state contests remaining. The divisiveness among the Democrats stands in contrast to the Republicans, whose party leaders are slowly rallying behind Donald Trump, their presumptive nominee.

O'Reilly and Scarborough to Trump: Enough with the Clinton conspiracies!
Conservative commentators are cautioning Donald Trump not to give fuel to conspiracy theories and sordid controversies that have long swirled around Bill and Hillary Clinton after the presumptive Republican nominee called a former White House aide’s suicide “fishy” and released an Instagram ad featuring audio recordings of the former president’s accusers. “I’m not sure it’s a good thing to do that,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly told Trump on Monday night, hours after the Instagram ad was posted. The brash billionaire said he only did so to counter Hillary Clinton’s attacks on him.

The snub comes as Martinez, a longtime Trump critic who backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the primary, has notably refused to line up behind the presumptive Republican presidential nominee even after GOP leaders have called for the party to unify behind him.

Obama prods Vietnam on rights after activists stopped from meeting him

U.S. President Barack Obama stands as he visits the Jade Pagoda temple in Ho Chi Minh City, VietnamBy Matt Spetalnick and Martin Petty HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama chided Vietnam on political freedoms on Tuesday after critics of its communist-run government were prevented from meeting him in Hanoi, a discordant note on a trip otherwise steeped in amity between the former foes. Tens of thousands turned out to welcome Obama on the second leg of his visit, Ho Chi Minh City, which was called Saigon until April 1975 when North Vietnamese tanks rolled in to bring U.S.-backed South Vietnam under communist rule. Many in the crowds lining the streets chanted "Obama, Obama," some held handwritten signs reading "Obama, we love you," and one woman held a boy dressed in a Captain America costume, complete with shield.

The official, who is part of the Egyptian team investigating the crash that killed all 66 people on board the flight from Paris to Cairo early last Thursday, has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue. “Whatever has been published is baseless and mere assumptions,” Hisham Abdel-Hamid told Egypt’s state MENA news agency.

Virginia governor under FBI probe over campaign donations: CNN

Virginia Democratic governor elect McAuliffe speaks to supporters at victory rally in VirginiaTerry McAuliffe, Virginia's Democratic governor and chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential run, is under federal investigation over contributions to his 2013 campaign, CNN said on Monday, citing unnamed U.S. officials. The U.S. Justice Department's year-long investigation has focused, at least in part, on whether contributions to McAuliffe's gubernatorial campaign, including $120,000 from a Chinese businessman, Wang Wenliang, violated the law, according to CNN. Investigators have "scrutinized" McAuliffe's time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, part of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton, CNN said, citing unidentified government officials briefed on the case.
