NAN reports that Daniel Iworiso-Markson, to ensure the Special Adviser was freed . " he claimed. R-Pa. said Wednesday the Senate Budget Committee is expected to send a draft budget to the Senate floor next weekThe House Freedom Caucus a key holdout bloc of conservative lawmakers endorsed the tax framework Wednesday setting up a floor vote on the House budget as soon as next week That would set up a conference between the chambers with senior Republicans expecting the final consensus budget resolution to closely resemble the Senate versionOnce the budget resolution passes both chambers the tax-writing committees – Senate Finance and House Ways and Means – would begin drafting and amending tax legislation where the politically thorny work of identifying revenue offsets would take placeToomey acknowledged that hard trade-offs are ahead saying that lawmakers will have to identify offsets of about $3 trillion over 10 years to align the plan with the budget resolutionThe framework released Wednesday calls for eliminating many business tax credits and individual income deductions while specifically naming only a few that should be spared"We’ve definitely identified the items that can get us there" Toomey said "The question is will we have the political will to do it"To raise revenue to offset the cuts Republicans are likely to consider limiting or eliminating the deductibility of state and local taxes a proposal that is generating opposition from lawmakers in states with high tax burdens They will also consider limits on how much businesses can deduct for interest payments a tax provision frequently used by financial and real estate firms"Those are two big ones that have to be on the table" Toomey saidBusiness groups who have already been leaning heavily on lawmakers to protect their favored tax breaks had mixed reactions to the plan Many cheered the general direction of the plan but made clear they were watching to see how Congress approached key unresolved details"Now we are entering into a crucial new phase of the effort to overhaul the tax code and the hardest work is just beginning" US Chamber of Commerce president Thomas Donohue said in a statement House Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady R-Texas will visit the Chamber on Thursday to discuss the planKoch Industries sent an open letter to Congress praising them for moving forward on tax reform but encouraging them to cut as many business-specific tax breaks as possible"We encourage policymakers to remove corporate welfare provisions from the code Wherever possible loopholes deductions exemptions and other handouts should disappear We maintain that cutting rates is the most reliable pathway to growth" wrote Philip EllenderOther industry groups outlined specific concernsThe National Association of Realtors denounced the blueprint saying in a statement Wednesday that the proposal to double the standard deduction would "all but nullify the incentive to purchase a home" for most taxpayers With the standard deduction doubling more homeowners would likely use that deduction when they filed their tax returns rather than taking advantage of the lucrative mortgage interest deduction"This proposal recommends a backdoor elimination of the mortgage interest deduction for all but the top 5 percent who would still itemize their deductions" William Brown president of the National Association of Realtors said in a statement "Plummeting home values are a poor housewarming gift for recent homebuyers and a tremendous blow to older Americans who depend on their home to provide a nest egg for retirement"Jim Tobin the chief lobbyist for the National Association of Home Builders said his organization was encouraged to see many of its top priorities included including access to interest deductions and the preservation of the low-income housing creditHe said his organization like the Realtors was concerned about doubling the standard deduction and concerned about losing the deduction for state and local taxes"We also recognize we’re in the opening stages of what is going to be a long fight a long journey to realize tax reform — so as the opening play in this we feel good about continuing to move forward" Tobin saidDemocratic leaders on Wednesday previewed their opposition to the proposalSome Democratic members of the House Ways and Means Committee were invited to a White House meeting with Trump on Tuesday and they said the president repeatedly emphasized the need for bipartisanship But Democrats had no role in drafting the blueprint and most roundly rejected it WednesdayDemocrats have said they will oppose tax changes that add to the debt or benefit the wealthiest Americans Those appear to be major elements of the GOP proposal something Democrats noted Wednesday as they attacked the planProposals in the GOP framework "would result in a massive windfall for the wealthiest Americans and provide almost no relief to middle-class taxpayers who need it most" Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer D-NY, The city also tied its

Saturday morning killing at least 95 people wounding 248 others and adding further to the chaos that has gripped the country for months The blasts which occurred just seconds apart ripped through a crowd of supporters of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) who had gathered to protest months of deadly violence between security forces and Kurdish militants Footage broadcast on Turkish TV showed people fleeing the scene of the bombing and heavily pixelated images of corpses covered in flags banners and blood In a widely shared video a man is seen walking among scores of bodies and asking “Is there anyone alive” Turkey’s prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu said there were “strong indications” that the attack the deadliest in the countrys history had been the work of two suicide bombers Davutoglu also declared a three day period of national mourning No group has claimed responsibility for the bloodshed although suspicion immediately fell on the Islamic State or ISIS whose sympathizers have recently staged similar attacks against Kurdish targets in Turkey On June 5 a bomb killed four people during an HDP election rally in Diyarbakir a city in the countrys Kurdish southeast On July 20 an ISIS militant killed 33 pro-Kurdish activists in Suruc a town on the border with Syria in a suicide attack The attack looks “eerily similar” to the others said Soner Cagaptay director of the Turkish Research Program at the Washington Institute "Early indicators would point at ISIS as the culprit" “This could well be Turkey’s 9/11" added Cagaptay "It took place in the heart of the Turkish capital across from the city’s central train station a symbolic landmark of Ataturk’s Ankara and killed so many people" But while America’s September 11 brought the country together at least for some time the Ankara attack threatens to deepen Turkeys divisions exacerbating tensions that have repeatedly spilled over into violence over the past year In the last four months alone Turkey has witnessed political uncertainty as result of inconclusive parliamentary elections a snowballing media crackdown and relentless clashes between security forces and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) President Recep Tayyip Erdogan de facto head of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has accused the opposition and the pro-Kurdish HDP in particular of being in cahoots with the PKK The opposition has accused him of starting a war against the Kurdish insurgents to bolster his political standing The PKK resumed its attacks against Turkish security targets in July renouncing a 2013 ceasefire The government responded with regular airstrikes against PKK positions and mass arrests of Kurdish activists Having claimed the lives of at least 140 Turkish security forces and hundreds of PKK militants the violence has since spread to a number of cities and towns in the southeast threatening to plunge the region into renewed civil war More than 30000 people have died in clashes between state forces and the PKK over the past thirty years With only twenty days left until an early election poised to decide Erdogans political future the country now faces a bitter campaign headed by leaders incapable of burying their differences even in the face of a national tragedy The recriminations began within hours of the attacks President Erdogan condemned the twin bombing which he called “a heinous attack against our unity and solidarity and our country’s peace" but immediately suggested that the HDP which retains some links to the PKK should shoulder at least part of the blame “Those who practice double standards against terrorist attacks and organizations are giving the biggest support to terrorism" he said The HDPs co-leader Selahattin Demirtas threw the accusation back in Erdogans face "We have lost almost 150 of our people before and after the elections" he said referring to victims of the Suruc Diyarbakir and Ankara bombings "There is no effective investigation There will be none regarding today’s attack either This is not an attack against unity of our state and nation This is an attack by our nation against our people” Devlet Bahceli the leader of a far-right nationalist party that placed third in the June elections blamed both Erdogan and the Kurds “Turkey is paying the price of the AKP’s sympathetic and warm approach to terror" Bahceli said Demonstrations meanwhile took place in several cities across Turkey In Ankara three ministers who tried to visit the site of Saturday’s blasts were forced back by an angry crowd In Istanbul protesters holding HDP banners streamed towards the city main pedestrian artery “Murderer Erdogan" they chanted "The AKP will answer for this" Only a day ahead of the Ankara attacks the PKK’s top commander said in an interview that his group was ready to call a ceasefire in the run-up of the Nov 1 parliamentary elections That call might now be dead in the water or at least hard to enforce No one would be more pleased says Cagaptay than the most likely perpetrator of the Ankara attacks the Islamic State "They have the most to benefit from a full-blown war between Turkey and the PKK” he said Contact us at editors@timecom there really wasn’t much of a debate Mayer added As such the Akalis were wiped out six months ago when they were relegated to the third place in the Punjab Assembly

Minutes interview and set about tormenting Trump and Cohen on cable and Twitter The strategy was a success: Daniels is not only a household name but also a hero to millions of women who now routinely outnumber men at her strip shows If the strategy had the added benefit of making Avenatti famous he says that was only to help his client “The people that are critical of our media strategy generally fall into one of two camps” he says “Either they’re jealous or they’re extremely concerned” Avenatti first vaulted to fame for his work on behalf of Daniels Drew Angerer—Getty Images Avenatti teamed up with Daniels at a particularly challenging moment in his peripatetic life Born in Sacramento he had a comfortable but transient upbringing The family moved often for his father’s job as an Anheuser-Busch manager landing in the suburbs of St Louis by the time he was a teenager His most formative experience he says was seeing his father get laid off in 1989 after 30 years of loyal service “That was his identity” Avenatti says At 83 his father still works full time Like Trump Avenatti was a transfer student who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania He spent time during college working as a dirt-digging operative flying around the country researching candidates for the consulting firm run by Rahm Emanuel the bare-knuckled former White House chief of staff Avenatti says he worked on more than 150 campaigns both Democratic and Republican including the unsuccessful effort to defeat then Republican Senator Arlen Specter in 1992 in part by dredging up details of unsavory clients Specter had represented as a criminal-defense lawyer Avenatti applied to law school at George Washington University in DC but was waitlisted and entered the night-school program in 1996 instead His first-year torts professor the legal scholar Jonathan Turley saw a rare gift in him “We can teach many things in law school” Turley says “What we cannot teach is instinct” After graduating Avenatti moved to the West Coast In 2007 he co-founded what’s known as a “plaintiff contingency firm” taking lawsuits on spec and getting paid only if the litigation succeeded–a risky proposition for complicated cases that can take years to settle But the firm notched big wins: a $39 million settlement on behalf of two executives who’d sued their former employer; an $805 million class-action settlement on behalf of Jews whose remains had been dumped in a mass grave by the LA cemetery where they were buried Over the course of his career Avenatti says he’s reaped over $1 billion in verdicts and settlements The $1 billion figure however is heavily padded by settlements that were substantially reduced on appeal In 2009 Avenatti won a nearly $40 million verdict in a fraud case against the accounting firm KPMG; three years later the New Jersey supreme court threw out the verdict In 2016 Avenatti was featured in a 60 Minutes investigation of defective Kimberly-Clark surgical gowns which he alleged were endangering the medical workers who wore them But the $450 million in punitive damages he won in the case was later reduced to just over $20 million Avenatti has been plagued by disputes with current and former partners In July 2011 one partner John O’Malley sued Avenatti and another partner Michael Eagan claiming the two had failed to pay him his portion of partnership fees after forcing him out of the firm Avenatti and Eagan countered that O’Malley had mismanaged and lied to clients O’Malley got $27 million in a settlement according to the Los Angeles Times Neither O’Malley nor Eagan responded to requests for comment Avenatti declined to comment on the settlement details Five years later Jason Frank a former nonequity partner at Avenatti’s firm sued for nearly $15 million in back pay according to court documents obtained by TIME Frank also claimed that Avenatti as managing partner had failed to provide him with copies of the firm’s tax returns and that it misstated its profits In February 2017 a month before the arbitration trial was to start a judicial panel found that the firm had maliciously and fraudulently concealed its revenue numbers In December 2017 Avenatti’s firm reached a $10 million settlement with Frank who agreed to receive less than half that if the first two installments were made on time They weren’t On Oct 22 a California judge ordered Avenatti who had personally guaranteed the first two payments to pay Frank $485 million The same day his firm was evicted from its office in a Newport Beach building for allegedly failing to pay rent for the past four months according to court documents Eagan Avenatti still owes Frank $10 million according to Frank’s attorney Eric George Avenatti claims Frank was a disgruntled former employee who had conspired to steal the firm’s clients Filings in a related bankruptcy case show that Avenatti’s firm had tax troubles Court documents dated January 2018 reveal that Avenatti had paid $15 million of an outstanding $24 million tax liability but that the firm still owed the IRS approximately $880000 Federal attorneys claimed in May that Avenatti had missed the first installment of that payment Avenatti says his firm has “fully satisfied” all of its tax liabilities The US attorney’s office in LA declined to comment It wasn’t just fellow lawyers with whom Avenatti had troubles In 2013 Avenatti teamed up with the actor Patrick Dempsey to buy the Seattle-based coffee chain Tully’s But just two months after they finalized the deal Dempsey sued to get out of the partnership claiming in court that Avenatti had borrowed $2 million to help buy the company without telling him Avenatti had purchased the Tully’s chain through a company he established in December 2012 called Global Baristas In 2017 the IRS claimed Global Baristas owed $5 million in federal taxes In March 2018 Tully’s closed all its stores One attorney who previously sued Tully’s in a real estate dispute David Nold filed a complaint with the California state bar in March 2018 alleging that Avenatti had purchased Tully’s as part of a scheme to avoid millions in tax payments Nold alleged that Avenatti used payments from Global Baristas to pay for the lawyers representing Eagan Avenatti in its bankruptcy proceedings The California state bar referred the complaint for investigation in April according to documents reviewed by TIME Nold and the California bar declined to comment Although Washington State documents list Avenatti as the sole governor of Global Baristas LLC Avenatti says he sold the company for $27 million “a long time ago” (he doesn’t remember when) and had nothing to do with the company’s recent issues He denies he hid any loans from Dempsey As for the Nold complaint Avenatti says that it was unfounded and that Nold had an ax to grind because of the Tully’s suit (In the Tully’s suit Avenatti notes Nold was fined $20000 for contempt of court for spreading misinformation about him during the proceedings) He says he has filed a complaint against Nold in Washington State “He’ll be lucky if he has a license to practice law in three months” Avenatti says Avenatti’s practice fed an extravagant lifestyle including a $19 million Newport Beach mansion two private jets and collections of high-end watches and art He competed in more than 30 professional sports-car races and counted two Ferraris as part of his fleet “We formerly owned several other race cars I do not know if we own any race cars at the present time” his second wife Lisa Storie-Avenatti wrote in a divorce filing after he left her and their then 3-year-old son in October 2017 (Avenatti also has two teenage daughters from his first marriage) He moved into a $14000-per-month apartment after the split and didn’t leave her enough cash to pay the electric bill she said in the filing which estimates the family’s monthly costs–including a staff of nannies and housekeepers as well as an assistant and a driver–at more than $200000 Avenatti his second wife wrote “is hot-tempered and used to having his way–when he doesn’t he gets extremely loud and verbally aggressive” In one December 2017 incident he showed up and demanded to be let into the Newport Beach house leading the police to be called according to her legal filing As part of their custody agreement Storie-Avenatti asked that her husband be accompanied by a nanny whenever he had visitation time with their son One of the last times he’d been alone with the child she claimed he sent the boy home alone with his driver with no car seat “I have no desire to publicly attack the mother of my son” Avenatti says in response “But suffice it to say that I disagree with her characterizations” Storie-Avenatti told TIME that the divorce is “not near finalized” and declined further comment Home may be LA, "I probably would be the one in jail..The farmer drove Lange to her grandmother’s home in Carrington, and articles of
