October 16, 2016: WikiLeaks on Saturday released full transcripts of three speeches Hillary Clinton gave to Goldman Sachs executives in 2013, along with comments by her presidential campaign staffers about how to handle challenging issues.

Wikileaks has been releasing material hacked from the email account of her campaign manager, John Podesta, for the past week.

According to the emails, her staffers noted potential problems, including her statement to bank executives that “political reasons” factored into passing a law on bank reforms, and Clinton’s flattering her audience by saying people in the banking industry know regulation issues better than anyone else.

Clinton has been dogged by accusations from her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and other critics that she is too close to Wall Street and other members of the financial elite.

Another email contained suggestions about how she could align herself more favorably with the working class by spending a day working alongside hotel maids or child-care workers. A key Clinton ally, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, suggested the idea to a Clinton aide, saying, “Our base [key Democratic supporters] would go wild for it.”

Drug test suggestion

Meanwhile, Republican candidate Donald Trump suggested Saturday that Clinton might have been on drugs at the last debate and that both candidates should undergo drug testing before Wednesday’s final match.

“We’re like athletes, right?” Trump said to his audience at a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. “I’m willing to do it.”

Trump also accused the media of influencing the November 8 presidential election in favor of Clinton, as he continued to deny multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

“They are phony allegations with no witnesses whatsoever,” Trump said at the New Hampshire rally. “It’s a rigged election because they’re taking these unsubstantiated [news accounts], no witnesses, putting them on the front pages of newspapers.”

Earlier Saturday, Trump tweeted, “Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted and should be in jail. Instead she is running for president in what looks like a rigged election.”

Trump has said repeatedly that Clinton should be jailed for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. After an investigation, FBI Director James Comey announced in July that charges against Clinton were not appropriate.

Trump’s latest comments came one day after two more women alleged that the real estate mogul made unwanted sexual advances toward them.

A contestant on Trump’s television show, “The Apprentice,” told reporters Friday that the businessman kissed and grabbed her at a hotel where she had gone to discuss potential jobs. Summer Zervos was a contestant on the show in 2006.

In an article published Friday by The Washington Post, Kristin Anderson said Trump slid his fingers under her skirt and touched her genitals through her underwear in a New York nightclub in the early 1990s.

The 46-year-old resident of Southern California said she pushed his hand away and got up from the couch on which she was sitting. Anderson said she and her companions were “very grossed out” by the incident, which she said lasted less than 30 seconds.

Anderson said she was reluctant to tell her story publicly, but was convinced she should do so after The New York Times, The Palm Beach Post in Florida andPeople Magazine published accounts earlier this week of women who said they had been groped by Trump.

Clinton was spending the weekend in New York preparing for the October 19 debate, but her campaign is launching an initiative to capitalize on Trump’s unpopularity among some women voters.

Campaign aides say they are planning women-to-women phone banks and door-to-door outreach to female voters in key states.

“Our campaign is mobilizing women disgusted by Trump to organize their communities and get out the vote for Clinton, either during early voting or on Election Day,” Clinton campaign aide Mini Timmaraju said in in a statement.

The candidates have about three weeks to make appeals to the nation’s voters, some of whom are apparently feeling the stress of the intense presidential campaign.

In this homestretch of the presidential race, Clinton has extended her lead over Trump in national polls. The RealClearPolitics national average shows Clinton leading Trump by nearly 7 percentage points (48.1 to 41.4) in a two-way race.

In a four-way race that also includes Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, Clinton’s lead over Trump narrows slightly to 5.3 percentage points. (VOA)

Restaurateurs Prodyut and Sumana Mukherjee have not only brought Indian cuisine to the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 here but also plan to dish out free dinner to countrymen if Argentina wins the trophy on July 15.

Based in Moscow for the last 27 years, Prodyut and Sumana run two Indian eateries, “Talk Of The Town” and “Fusion Plaza”.

Both restaurants serve popular Indian dishes like butter chicken, kebabs and a varied vegetarian spread.

During the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018, there will be 25 per cent discount for those who will possess a Fan ID (required to watch World Cup games).

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

The Mukherjees, hailing from Kolkata, are die-hard fans of Argentina. Despite Albiceleste drawing 1-1 with Iceland in their group opener with Lionel Messi failing to sparkle, they believe Jorge Sampaoli’s team can go the distance.

“I am an Argentina fan. I have booked tickets for a quarterfinal match, a semifinal and of course the final. If Argentina goes on to lift

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
