Kremlin says Mueller report shows no evidence of Russian meddling

The Kremlin said on Friday that U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report did not contain any evidence the Russian state had meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Mueller’s report, released on Thursday, details extensive contacts between Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian operatives who, it said, sought to tilt the election in Trump’s favor.

However, the report did not find evidence of a criminal conspiracy between Trump’s election campaign and Russia.

Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow regretted the Mueller report was having an impact on its relations with Washington.

“In general, the report still does not include any reasonable evidence at all that Russia allegedly interfered in the U.S. election.

“We, as before, do not accept such allegations,” Peskov said.

“We regret that a document of this quality is having a direct impact on the development of bilateral Russian-U.S. relations that are already not in the best condition,” he added.

Michael Avenatti says Nike ‘pulled a stunt’ by having him arrested

Michael Avenatti said Nike “pulled a stunt” by having him arrested before he could go public with accusations that the retailer paid certain high school athletes to coax them into playing basketball at Nike-sponsored colleges. Nike “has been covering up this scandal for over five years,” Avenatti told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Monday. “I find it very curious … Nike has yet to deny bribing players,” Avenatti said on Monday.

Michael Avenatti says Nike 'pulled a stunt' by having him arrested

Michael Avenatti said Nike “pulled a stunt” by having him arrested before he could go public with accusations that the retailer paid certain high school athletes to coax them into playing basketball at Nike-sponsored colleges.

Nike “has been covering up this scandal for over five years,” Avenatti told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Monday. “They knew they could not control me. … They effectively had to shoot the messenger.”

Avenatti, who is now facing extortion charges, over the weekend dumped 41 pages of documents that he claims contain evidence showing Nike “bribed players” to attend certain Nike-sponsored schools. He also tweeted about Duke University’s star basketball player and slated-to-be No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, Zion Williamson, being involved in the “scandal.” Avenatti alleges Williamson’s mother accepted money for him to end up at Duke. The school has since said it’s “looking into” these claims.

“I find it very curious … Nike has yet to deny bribing players,” Avenatti said on Monday. “I am willing to work with the government … with the NCAA … with these colleges. I’m an open book.”

“When the truth is known, people are going to rightly be outraged by this level of corruption,” he added. “Nike investors are going to ask themselves: Why didn’t Nike disclose this … along the way?”

This all comes after Avenatti, who has gained widespread notoriety in the past year for representing porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen, was arrested and charged in New York last month for trying to extort millions of dollars from Nike by threatening to take his allegations public. At the same time, Avenatti was also separately charged in a second federal case in Los Angeles for embezzling a client’s money “in order to pay his own expenses and debts,” according to prosecutors.

Avenatti has, meanwhile, denied he tried to shake down Nike, saying he was just working on behalf of one of his clients. He was arrested in New York just 15 minutes after he tweeted he would be revealing a high school and college basketball scandal. Based on the charges in both cases against him, if convicted, Avenatti faces nearly 100 years in prison and potential disbarment as a lawyer.

Now, as the NCAA men’s Final Four basketball tournament comes to a close, Avenatti is going public with his allegations against Nike. He claims to have evidence that more than $170,000 has been paid out by the retailer to family members of basketball players, including the Phoenix Suns’ Deandre Ayton, former University of Nevada Las Vegas player Brandon McCoy and Oregon Ducks’ Bol Bol.

He told CNBC the 41 pages of documents he’s posted on the internet thus far just “scratch the surface” in terms of the evidence he has against Nike. “We have more from where than came from.”

Nike over the weekend had said it “will not respond to the allegations of an individual facing federal charges of fraud and extortion and aid in his disgraceful attempts to distract from the athletes on the court at the height of the tournament.” And that it “will continue its cooperation with the government’s investigation into grassroots basketball and the related extortion case.”

Ex-Navy SEAL: This mentality 'rubs everybody the wrong way' but it led to my success

David Goggins is the only member of the U.S. armed forces ever to complete training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger and Air Force Tactical Air Controller.

He’s also a former Guinness World Record holder for completing 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours. Today, at age 44, the retired SEAL is an accomplished endurance athlete, having competed in more than 60 ultra-marathons, triathlons, and ultra-triathlons and having won a handful of them. He’s also the New York Times best-selling author of “Can’t Hurt Me.”

Goggins credits his success to what he calls the “day one, week one” mentality. He lives each day like it’s the first day of the first week of a new job. While this mindset “rubs everybody the wrong way,” he says, it works.

Think back to the last time you were trying to land a new position, he says: “Before you go to a job interview, you lay your clothes out. You’ve got your bowl out for your oatmeal, your protein shake, everything is laid out. You show up 30 minutes early. You’re prepped. You studied.”

Bank of America's tech chief is skeptical on blockchain despite having the most patents for it

For half a decade, Bank of America has quietly been preparing for a future in which the world of finance migrates to the blockchain.

Under tech and operations chief Cathy Bessant, the giant bank has accumulated the most patents for the technology of any financial services company, for inventions ranging from blockchain-powered ATMs to storage for cryptocurrency keys.

But Bessant now says that she’s grown doubtful that blockchain – the distributed ledger software behind cryptocurrencies like bitcoin – will amount to anything in the near term. Or possibly ever.

“What I am is open-minded,” Bessant said recently in an interview at the bank’s New York tower. “In my private scoreboard, in the closet, I am bearish.”

Bessant, 58, is wading into the public debate about the blockchain, whose proponents have claimed will be as significant as the internet. A blockchain is essentially an encrypted database that runs on multiple computers, potentially cutting out the need for centralized authorities like banks or governments to settle transactions between parties.

Economist Nouriel Roubini has called it “the most overhyped” technology in history. Others have said that blockchain merely needs time to evolve, and could eventually upend entire industries from finance to cloud computing and healthcare.

As the mania over cryptocurrencies died down in the past year amid a bear market, attention and dollars have funneled into blockchain startups. Venture capital firms poured $5.4 billion into blockchain startups last year, compared to $1.5 billion in 2017, according to Autonomous Research.

Trump's message is having an impact on NATO, secretary general says

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told CNBC that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric on defense spending is having an “important” impact on the military alliance.

“I’m saying that his message has been very clear and that his message is having an impact on defense spending. And this is important because we need fairer burden sharing in the NATO alliance,” he told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

“We see more nations spending 2 percent of GDP (gross domestic product) on defense which is the NATO guideline and we see that all nations have stopped the cuts we saw for many years to their defense budgets. And all nations have started to increase,” he added.

Contributions to NATO are a highly sensitive topic. Trump has often criticized other NATO members for not respecting the spending rule. Speaking at a NATO summit in 2017, Trump said: “Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on defense than all NATO countries combined. If all NATO members had spent just 2 percent of GDP on defense last year, we would have had another $119 billion for our collective defense.”

Credit Suisse swings back to profit for the first time since 2014

“Having cleaned the balance sheet, dealt with the main legacy issues, (now) it is about to grow and stay close to our clients.”

Here are some other details:

Assets under management rose 2.1 percent year-on-year.

CET 1 ratio stood at 12.6 percent at the end of 2018 versus 13.5 percent at the end of 2017.

Credit Suisse completed at the end of last year its three-year restructuring program.

Speaking to CNBC after the results, Tidjane Thiam, chief executive officer of Credit Suisse said: “Having cleaned the balance sheet, dealt with the main legacy issues, (now) it is about to grow and stay close to our clients.”

Media reports on Thursday suggested that the Swiss bank could scrap bonuses this year, after losing money in a commodity financing deal in the last quarter of 2018.

Thiam told CNBC that although the total of the bonus pool was flat this year, there were fewer employees – meaning that on average people are likely to get a higher compensation.

“On a per capita basis, actually bonuses are up almost everywhere because you have to remember we have fewer people, the total is flat but it actually represents a reasonably strong increase in a per capital basis,” he said.
