Christine LagardeThe world’s top banker said Thursday that the policies advocated by Donald Trump could strike a major blow to the world economy.

In an interview with the Financial Times, International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde said Britain’s vote last month to leave the European Union already threatens to stymie economic growth. And the sorts of tariffs and trade barriers pushed by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee ― including pledges to shred major trade pacts, like the North American Free Trade Agreement ― would make things much worse.


Loretta Lynch makes it official: No charges in Hillary Clinton email probe

Loretta LynchAttorney General Loretta Lynch made official late Wednesday what was widely expected: The Justice Department will not press charges against Hillary Clinton or anyone else as part of its investigation into Clinton's use of private email servers while secretary of State.

The announcement comes the day after FBI Director James Comey said that, while Clinton and State Department employees had been "extremely careless" in handling classified materials, there was no basis for a criminal case.

However, a statement filed to the Securities and Exchange Commission by Wells Fargo Securities on Trump’s behalf in 2012 indicated that the real estate developer was then worth less than half that, with comparatively few of the liquid assets that may now finance his campaign for president.

Clinton Has ‘Voluntary’ Interview at FBI Over E-Mail Practices

Hillary ClintonHillary Clinton was questioned on Saturday as part of the FBI’s inquiry into her use of a private e-mail server while secretary of state, a practice that’s dogged her presidential run, fueled Republican charges that she’s unfit for office, and caused Clinton herself to say she wishes she could take it back.

It threatens more turbulence for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee days after Attorney General Loretta Lynch was criticized for meeting former President Bill Clinton privately on an aircraft in Phoenix.

Loretta LynchAttorney General Loretta Lynch will accept the findings of an FBI investigation into whether Hillary Clinton or one of her aides broke the law by setting up a private email server for her to use as secretary of state.
