DONALD Trump ordered his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the President's involvement in negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to a bombshell report. Mr Trump and his oldest children Ivanka and Donald Jr received regular updates about the proposed development - even as Trump denied having any business in Russia, according to Buzzfeed. Its report alleges that Trump also wanted to visit Russia during his 2016 Presidential campaign to meet with Vladimir Putin personally. Trump wanted to kick-start negotiations on the luxury sky-scraper - which he hoped would bring in $300million in profits (£231m), the site alleges. Trump is said to have told Cohen about the proposed face-to-face with Putin, ordering him to "Make it happen", according to two unnamed law enforcement officials.

0 Have your say After a decade, Jade Anouka is finally making her living through acting alone, with breakthrough roles on stage, TV and film, including new drama Cleaning Up. Numbers, numbers, numbers, I’m not a numbers person,” says the actor and poet Jade Anouka and laughs. “It’s funny because everyone else in my family is about numbers – my mum’s a maths teacher, and my dad was a financial adviser. They’re all numbers, my lot. I’m a complete anomaly. I’m a words person.”Shakespeare, poetry, Ted Talks, and over the phone too she’s a wizard wordsmith, but ask her about insider trading, stocks and shares and hedge funds and she’s stymied. No matter because what she CAN do is act, and it all adds up in her latest role in ITV’s Cleaning Up, in which she stars opposite Sheridan Smith as a pair of down-on-their-luck cleaners who find an ingenious, if illegal, way of playing the system. The … [Read more...] about Interview: Rising star Jade Anouka on her new TV drama ‘Cleaning Up’
The first time I call Nigel Farage live on air on his LBC radio show, I give my real name. It’s Sunday 10 June 2018, the day the Observer reports that Arron Banks, the main funder of Farage’s Leave.EU campaign, had not one (as he had claimed), but several meetings with the Russian ambassador in the run-up to the EU referendum. “What do you want to say to Nigel?” the producer asks. “I want to talk about how the funder of his campaign has systematically lied about his relationship with the Russian government,” I say. “I can’t put you through,” the producer says, an edge of panic in her voice. “Come on,” I say. “You’re a journalist. You know these are important questions. “I’m standing in,” she says. “I’m not the usual producer.” She promises to speak to her editor and call me back. No one calls me back. Two days later, I try again. Banks and his business partner Andy Wigmore, … [Read more...] about Who is the real Nigel Farage… and why won’t he answer my questions?
The former boss of Topshop has lifted the lid on working for the “bully” Sir Philip Green, claiming she spent years protecting her team from him. Jane Shepherdson was brand director of the high street chain when Sir Philip bought its parent company in 2002. She later quit because she “couldn’t bear the thought” of working closely with him. “There is no question he was a bully. Everybody knows he was a bully,” Ms Shepherdson told The Telegraph’s inaugural Women Mean Business Live event. Speaking openly for the first time about her five years working with the billionaire, she said: “I had brought in this incredibly talented team of people to work at Topshop. “There was absolutely no way that I would have them be exposed to that kind of behaviour and the way Philip ran his business. “I felt it was my duty to protect the team from that. If he came on to the buying floor somebody would come and get me and say, ‘Jane, … [Read more...] about Women Mean Business: ‘I had to protect staff from Philip Green’s bullying’ alleges former Topshop chief
