‘We know’ Russia hacked election

first_imgThough President Trump says he is not convinced that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, U.S. Sen. Angus King of Maine said Monday that he and his colleagues on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which is probing the matter, have “no doubt whatsoever” of Moscow’s involvement.“We know they did it, we know it was sophisticated, we know it was serious, and we know they’re coming back!” said King during a discussion with Nicholas Burns, the Roy and Barbara Goodman Family Professor of the Practice of Diplomacy and International Relations at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) Monday.Though limited in what he could share publicly given the highly classified nature of the Russia inquiry, King said it is clear to the entire committee that Russia ran a sophisticated intelligence operation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, and the members are sure Russia will continue to meddle in U.S. presidential and state-level races until they’re stopped.Discussing what involvement, if any, some members of the Trump campaign might have had in Russia’s interference, he said the committee needs more facts before rendering a formal opinion. “That question is open,” said King, one of two independents in the Senate. He frequently caucuses with Democrats.Asked by Professor David Gergen, a longtime White House adviser and now director of the Center for Public Leadership at HKS, whether the Intelligence Committee is likely to reach any bipartisan conclusions in its eventual report, King said, “The jury’s still out. I think it’s possible; we’re just not there yet. We just don’t have all the information.”King (from left), Burns, and Rep. Joe Kennedy III speak ahead of the talk. Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerKing believes it will be essential for the committee to put aside political loyalties and speak with a single voice. “My view is, if the American people are going to buy the conclusions of the report, it’s got to be almost unanimous.”King sounded somewhat sympathetic to Trump, who does not acknowledge that Russia interfered in the U.S. election and suggests that, even if it did, no one from his campaign took part in that effort. King said Trump is conflating the two issues because he thinks the allegations of Russian meddling constitute an attempt to delegitimize his victory. But his repeated claims that the inquiries are persecutions, King suggested, undermine the country’s ability to take swift, decisive action against future interference.“I understand where he’s coming from,” said King. “I understand that he doesn’t want to concede that this happened. The problem is: By calling it a hoax and a witch hunt, we can’t get the national consensus that we need that indeed the Russians did attack us and we have to prevent it from happening again.”King said he hopes that Trump can separate the two issues and come out forcefully against Russian interference and promise some punishment, because thus far Russia has paid no price for what happened. Though the Senate voted 98–2 in late July to further sanction Russia for meddling, Trump has not implemented those strictures.“This [kind of cyber assault] could keep happening long after he’s out of office,” King said. “It’s a frontal assault on our democracy, and we’ve got to treat it as such.”Dan Balz, chief correspondent at the Washington Post and a fall fellow at the HKS Institute of Politics, asked whether the committee had seen enough evidence to render a position on whether the Trump campaign cooperated with Russia. King said he couldn’t answer because the investigation is classified.But he pushed back on a notion posed by David Sanger ’82, a Pulitzer Prize-winning national security reporter for The New York Times and an adjunct lecturer at HKS, that Russia’s meddling was a failure of U.S. intelligence. An earlier assessment by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson made clear that the intelligence community wasn’t asleep at the switch, he said.Rather, he said, factors contributing to the success of the intrusion included the Obama administration’s decision to be less vociferous in alerting the public about the meddling for fear of being seen as partisan, the FBI’s failure to adequately alert the Democratic National Committee after the bureau discovered it had been hacked, and the mistake made by a staffer in the office of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, to open a phishing email.There were “lots of failures along the line,” he said.last_img read more

Harvard awards nine honorary degrees

first_imgAngela MerkelDoctor of LawsPrincipal Commencement SpeakerAngela MerkelWidely regarded as Europe’s most powerful leader and “Chancellor of the Free World,” Angela Merkel was sworn in as German chancellor on Nov. 22, 2005, the first woman and the first East German to hold the office.With her slogan “Wir schaffen das” — “We will manage it” — Merkel’s four terms have been marked by shrewd resolve and pragmatism, along with an openness to positions from across the political spectrum if sensible and popular, as exemplified by her decision to phase out nuclear power after the Fukushima accident in 2011. Her welcoming of migrants and refugees and  handling of the European debt crisis, on the other hand, showed Merkel’s willingness to do what she believes is right, even if out of favor.Last fall, she stepped down as head of the Christian Democratic Union, the party she joined in 1990, and announced that she will step down as chancellor when her current term ends in 2021.Merkel’s many honors include the Grand Cross 1st Class of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the 2018 J.

​MNOPF completes final £25m buyout ahead of Old Section wind-up

first_imgThe Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund (MNOPF) has insured a further £25m (€31m) of liabilities with Rothesay Life, setting in motion the formal wind-up of the scheme’s £1.3bn Old Section.The fund, with a total of £3.5bn in assets split between two sections, has since 2009 gradually been completing buy-ins with insurers Rothesay and Lucida, which in 2013 was acquired by Legal & General.The final, £25m agreement with Rothesay will see the benefits of the 22,098 members in the Old Section increase by 2.2%, effective from July.As a result of completing the buyout of the section, which closed to new members in 1978, it would be “formally wound up within the next few weeks”, the fund said in a statement. It has been known for several years that the MNOPF has intended to wind up the Old Section, with the scheme contacting members in August 2012 to inform them it planned to “extend [the] programme of insurance to cover the remaining liabilities of the Old Section”.The letter, seen at the time by IPE, added: “In due course, this would allow the trustee to wind up the Old Section of the fund, which by then would contain no further assets, as these would have been used to purchase the insurance policies.”In December 2012, the MNOPF then announced a £680m buy-in with Rothesay that, coupled with two prior deals with Lucida worth £600m, covered all outstanding liabilities of the Old Section.The MNOPF’s chief executive Andrew Waring said the past few years had been very challenging for the scheme.“Improving the Old Section’s funding position from a little over 80% in 2009 to full funding today, and completing these transactions, have been tremendous achievements in these very difficult markets,” he said.The MNOPF’s chairman Peter McEwen added that the final transaction with Rothesay was “good news” for members.“It means certainty and security over pension benefits have now been extended in full to all benefits of the Old Section through the insurance arrangements that are in place,” he said.“Overall, our members will enjoy greater security than most pension fund members, thanks to the regulatory and capital requirements for insurers, which are more rigorous than those of most pension funds.”Despite pension entitlements being held by two separate insurers, the scheme has launched a portal – called myMNOPFpension – to grant members a single point of contact for all enquiries and continue to receive a single pension payment.last_img read more

PNO Media ramps up mortgage allocation to 12%

first_imgPNO Media, the €5.5bn pension fund for the media and creative sectors in the Netherlands, has increased its strategic allocation to Dutch mortgages and US high yield bonds at the expense of liquid assets, European credit, and emerging market debt.In its annual report for 2016, the pension fund said it had stayed within its strategic risk framework and 50% fixed income allocation, due to its its underfunded position.Outside of the strategic allocation to fixed income, PNO Media reduced both its listed and private equity holdings in favour of property and infrastructure.The pension fund reported a result of 8.5% for the year, including a 0.6% gain from its 25% interest hedge, due to declining interest rates. It also credited falling interest rates for the 12.6% return from its euro-denominated government bond holdings. PNO Media’s fixed income portfolio delivered an overall return of 9.2%.Equity generated 7.9%. PNO Media attributed the underperformance of 1.5 percentage points relative to its benchmark chiefly to its large portfolio of active large-cap investments, which have a long-term focus in Europe and the US.The scheme said that its “high-quality” Dutch mortgage holdings yielded 3.9% – an outperformance of 1.6% – adding that it had increased its strategic allocation from 10% to 12%.The media scheme also said that it had made its non-listed property portfolio more defensive through an increased focus on Dutch residential property as well as retail, by reducing the number of funds and decreasing leverage to less than 25%.It increased the strategic allocation to retail property assets from 28% to 38% of its real estate portfolio, while halving its office holdings to 8% and reducing its stake in corporate property from 10% to 8%.PNO Media’s stake in US dollar-denominated emerging market debt (EMD) returned 17.2%, but the scheme’s currency hedging prevented it from benefitting from the appreciation of the dollar, it said.As local currency EMD underperformed with a return of 11.8%, the pension fund said it had decided to divest its holdings.Private equity yielded 9.7%. The pension fund said it expected that for the long term, the asset class would generate 3% extra returns relative to European and US public equity.It has 3% invested in private equity – managed by SPF Beheer – an allocation that has predominantly been invested in the buyout sector in Europe.The pension fund said it had no plans to extend its infrastructure portfolio, after doubling the allocation to 2%. Its investments in non-listed European funds produced 7.7% last year.Away from the investment portfolio, PNO Media said it would focus on cost reduction through growth. Last year, it was joined by the pension funds of consumer organisation Consumentenbond and book logistics provider Centraal Boekhuis, with 750 employees transferring in total. It also welcomed 30 smaller employers, with 150 workers combined.It said that costs per participant had risen €11 to €216, citing higher expenses for security of data, governance and communication, as well as the introduction of new pension arrangements and the acquisition of new clients.The pension fund drove down asset management costs to 0.63% and transaction costs to 0.11%.Last April, its funding stood at 100.7%. It said that indexation was unlikely to be on the cards and that it might have to cut pension rights if its coverage ratio was still short of 104.1% by 2020.last_img read more

Abramovich to boost Chelsea’s transfer plans with £200m funds

first_imgChelsea manager, Frank Lampard, is planning several more transfers as he looks to turn the Blues into Premier League title contenders. Roman Abramovich will give the funds to Frank Lampard to take Chelsea’s summer spending well north of £200million if the Blues can secure deals for the manager’s three top targets. The Chelsea owner has already sanctioned over £80m of spending on Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax respectively. The two are essentially a direct replacement for ageing wingers Willian and Pedro, who have been allowed to depart Stamford Bridge on free transfers. But they also add extra quality to the Chelsea attack as Lampard looks to transform his team into a Premier League title contender. Investment is needed to bridge the 33-point gap to champions Liverpool while second-placed Manchester City were also 15 points ahead of Chelsea. And according to the Daily Mirror, Lampard is plotting three big signings – with Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz the current priority. Talks are well underway between the two clubs with Havertz thought to have already agreed terms to sign a five-year contract in west London. But the two clubs are well apart in their valuations of the 21-year-old Germany international, Chelsea wanting to do a deal at around £60m to £70m. Leicester’s Chilwell is his top left-back target despite Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico being a cheaper alternative, with a price tag of around £20m being mooted. With the Foxes having sold Harry Maguire to Manchester United for a world record £80m a year ago, they are expected to demand a similar fee for his England team-mate. Academy graduate Chilwell, 23, will not be allowed to leave Leicester on the cheap but Lampard is determined to bring him to the English capital. Brendan Rodgers appears to be bracing for Chilwell’s exit with Olympiakos’ Kostas Tsimikas and Norwich’s Jamal Lewis among his targets, with Liverpool also tracking the pair having had a bid rejected for the latter. Meanwhile Lampard also sees West Ham’s Declan Rice as a man to help fix his side’s defensive problems. The Chelsea boss thinks Rice can be the answer at centre-back despite the 21-year-old having spent much of his time in the Premier League in defensive midfield. He only started once in central defence in the league this season. Named the Hammers’ best player of the season, West Ham have long declared that Rice is not for sale at any price. But more recently it has been suggested that it could take around £70m to land Rice, who was on Chelsea’s books for eight years before being released in 2014.

The Spaniard endured a wretched campaign and found himself dropped for Willy Caballero towards the end of it, including in the FA Cup final loss to Arsenal. Signed for just shy of £72m from Athletic Bilbao two years ago, Chelsea no longer trust Arrizabalaga to be first choice and could offload him. Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid is a target for the Londoners but he would require a huge outlay in excess of £100m. Chelsea would need to agree on a swap deal involving Arrizabalaga and would not want to commit huge funds in a player-plus-cash deal. Instead, Ajax’s Andre Onana is an alternative and could be picked up at around £30m – though Chelsea must still deal with Arrizabalaga’s future if they opt for the Cameroonian. Elsewhere, Ben White is viewed as an alternative if Rice proves too expensive – though he too will not come cheaply. Leeds have had two bids rejected for the Brighton defender with the 22-year-old having been an ever-present in their Championship title-winning team. Liverpool also like White, who was the subject of £18.5m and £22m bids from Leeds this week. Signing all of Havertz, Rice and Chilwell could see Chelsea’s spending move close to £300m. Lampard has made it clear that Chelsea must spend this summer if they are to make real progress in their search of major honours. The gap between them and the top teams was shown on Saturday as they were beaten 4-1 by Bayern Munich to lose their Champions League last 16 tie 7-1 on aggregate. Lampard said: “It is a work in progress. It is not the norm at Chelsea in the last 15-20 years finishing where we are. read also:Chelsea pay glowing tribute to their most decorated star Pedro “Now is not the time to rest and not settle and think where we can improve. “We have had the likes of [Eden] Hazard and [Diego] Costa and then [Petr] Cech, [John] Terry and [Didier] Drogba and those teams were competing for Premier League titles and getting to semi finals and finals but we know that’s not the case right now. “We lost the best player in the league in Hazard and we have had to develop young players. “We don’t normally think finishing fourth is a good thing, that isn’t our level we are used to and we are not happy with that but it is an achievement with this group.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
