Facebook urged to pause Libra crypto-currency project

“Given the company’s troubled past, I am requesting that Facebook agree to a moratorium on any movement forward on developing a crypto-currency until Congress and regulators have the opportunity to examine these issues and take action,” said Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters.

She cited the firm’s history of controversies involving user-data among her concerns, and called on Facebook’s executives to testify before her committee.

…US Senator Sherrod Brown, who sits on the Senate Banking Committee, said he thought Facebook had become “too big and too powerful”.

“We cannot allow Facebook to run a risky new crypto-currency out of a Swiss bank account without oversight,” he said in a statement.

Kelly Craft absent from post for over 300 days, records show

U.S. Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft was absent from her post for more than 300 days during her tenure in Ottawa, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s top Democrat said today during Craft’s confirmation hearing to become the American envoy to the U.N.

The disclosure comes days after POLITICO reported about questions surrounding the frequency of Craft’s travel outside of Canada. Craft has served for about 600 days since she formally took over the ambassador post in late October 2017, so she was out of the country for at least half the time she has served, based on the State Department records.
