The U.S. Justice Department made a “wrong and dangerous” argument in seeking to defend former President Donald Trump against a former advice columnist’s claim that he defamed her when he denied her allegation of rape, her lawyers have told a court. During Trump's presidency, the Justice Department sought to make the United States, not him personally, the defendant in E. Jean Carroll's lawsuit — a move that would put U.S. taxpayers on the hook if she got a payout in the case. The Justice Department has argued that the statements he made about Carroll, including that she was “totally lying” to sell a memoir and that “she's not my type," fell within the scope of his job as president.

The man accused of going on a shooting rampage at a Southern California business, killing four people, should not have been allowed to buy or own guns because of a California law that prohibits people from purchasing weapons for 10 years after being convicted of a crime. Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez was convicted of battery in 2015, which should have kept him from possessing or buying guns or ammo at stores that conduct background checks. Police say Gaxiola had targeted Unified Homes, the mobile home brokerage company in Orange, and had personal and business relationships with the victims.

The Justice Department sued Donald Trump's ally Roger Stone on Friday, accusing the conservative provocateur and his wife of failing to pay nearly $2 million in income tax. It alleges the couple underpaid their income tax by more than $1.5 million from 2007 until 2011 and separately alleges Stone also owes more than $400,000 for not fully paying his tax bill in 2018. The suit alleges that the couple used a commercial entity known as Drake Ventures to “shield their personal income from enforced collection” and to fund a “lavish lifestyle.”

PM Trudeau: "Canada continues to face a serious situation with this third wave."Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday that the Canadian government will help Toronto as the country's largest city struggles to cope with a rapidly worsening wave of COVID-19."In Toronto in particular, numbers are breaking record after record and ICU hospital beds are filling up. There's no doubt that Canada's largest city is struggling under the weight of this third wave. So we're going to do whatever it takes to help."In Toronto - the capital of Ontario - cases could grow three-fold by the end of May unless tough restrictions are imposed, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation cited sources as saying.While some Ontario hospitals say they are close to a breaking point as the latest wave rips through the country's most populous province. Trudeau said Ontario had reached out for help with vaccinations and that the government was ready to deploy the Canadian Red Cross with mobile inoculation teams."This is about getting doses to people where the situation is most serious."Ontario announced a record 4,736 daily cases on Thursday and the CBC said this could hit 18,000 by end of May if current trends continued.Canada's response has been complicated by the division of responsibilities between the provinces and Ottawa.The federal government is buying vaccines but the provinces are in charge of inoculations.

Australia is in no rush to reopen its international borders, said the country's Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday.The borders have been closed to all non-citizens and non-residents since March last year.Australian citizens and permanent residents cannot leave the country due to coronavirus restrictions unless they have an exemption.Returning Australians from overseas also have to quarantine in hotels for two weeks at their own expense."I can assure Australians that I will not be putting at risk the way we are living in this country, which is so different to the rest of the world today. "Last week Morrison said they were considering a staggered reopening of its international borders to allow residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel abroad first.Australia is one of the world's most successful countries to have handled the pandemic with coronavirus cases of around 29, 000 in total.But its nationwide vaccine rollout has been a hot political topic - a source of tension between the states and federal government.Australia had banked on the AstraZeneca vaccine for the majority of its shots, but last week raced to double its Pfizer vaccine order.That followed advice that people under the age of 50 should take Pfizer's vaccine, after European regulators found possible links between AstraZeneca's shot and reports of rare cases of blood clots.The government has since abandoned a goal to vaccinate everyone by the end of 2021.
"These conditions include, but are not limited to, strengthened screening and monitoring of participants who are at high risk of a blood clotting disorder," the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) said. SAHPRA said on Wednesday that it had recently reviewed data from Johnson & Johnson's local research study immunising healthcare workers and found no major safety concerns. South Africa suspended the rollout of the J&J vaccine in the "implementation study" on Tuesday, after U.S. health agencies recommended pausing its use because of rare cases of blood clots in six people inoculated with it, out of some 7 million people who have received the shot in the United States.
