By Bloomberg News | PUBLISHED: November 1, 2018 at 10:53 am | UPDATED: November 1, 2018 at 10:54 am By Justin Sink and Jonathan Levin | Bloomberg News President Donald Trump has signed an executive order enabling new sanctions on Venezuela’s gold sector, in a bid to disrupt trade with Turkey that U.S. officials fear is undermining their efforts to pressure the South American nation’s president, Nicolas Maduro, and members of his authoritarian government. The order, signed Wednesday by Trump and to be announced at a speech Thursday by National Security Adviser John Bolton, targets those operating corruptly within the gold sector and will have a “fairly significant” effect on the country’s economy, according to a senior administration official who requested anonymity to discuss the announcement before it was made. The Treasury Department is expected to announce details of how it is implementing the new sanctions authority later Thursday. While the … [Read more...] about Trump pressures Maduro with new Venezuela gold sanctions

The powers laid out in an obscure 1920s addition to the tax code are clear: The leaders of Congress’s tax-writing committees, including the Ways and Means Committee in the House, are empowered to request from the Treasury Department tax returns or related information on any tax filer. Democrats could use that information to finally determine if Mr. Trump, who built a global business empire before entering politics, has problematic financial entanglements with Russia or other … [Read more...] about With a House Takeover, Democrats Could Get Trump’s Tax Returns.

It used to be the kind of work that usually involved friends and neighbors. But in the year since Mr. Chawla and his brother signed a hotel deal with President Trump’s family business, he has been courted by strangers. Goldman Sachs dispatched a wealth manager in hopes of signing him as a client. And on a recent afternoon, a businessman from Florida came to discuss hotel developments, including a potential location in the shadow of Universal Studios. “I’m the same person, but people look at me in a different way,” said Mr. Chawla, whose corner office consists of a … [Read more...] about Their Father Was a Refugee in India.

Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 4:49 p.m. UTC May 28, 2018 The Detroit Pistons have been without a head coach for three weeks — and the sky is not falling. After parting ways with Stan Van Gundy, the Pistons have been very deliberate in assessing their situation, looking at all the viable options in both the coaching ranks and in the front office. They made one big move last week, hiring Ed Stefanski from the Memphis Grizzlies as a senior adviser, tasked with restocking the executive staff and hiring a new coach. Stefanski will start his work this week — and the work won’t start with the coaching staff. Because it doesn’t need to. The preliminary signs point to Dwane Casey as the obvious choice, even after he was ousted by the Toronto Raptors, following a franchise-record 59 wins this season. Casey, 61, is the best veteran coach on the market — and with the Pistons’ veteran roster, the lean could be toward getting a vet more than trying a … [Read more...] about Pistons candidate Dwane Casey known for building player relationships
