Top members of Congress huddle with Trump on Iran – CBS News

President Trump met with top members of the House and Senate at the White House Thursday, after Iran shot down a U.S. drone flying over what the U.S. says was international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz. Iran claims the drone was in its airspace.

A source in the meeting tells CBS News “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan the meeting was a positive one, without arguments. Mr. Trump, the source said, went around the room and gathered input, although he did not run through options. No one objected to the premise of a U.S. response, but that had many possible permutations, according to the source.

Pennsylvania Department of the Auditor General -Auditor General DePasquale Wants Clear Accounting of $2.14 million in Escrow Funds Held by York County Recorder of Deeds

YORK (May 3, 2019) – Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today said that the York County Recorder of Deeds office could not explain the account balance of more than $2.14 million held in an escrow fund.

A recently completed audit found the lack of accountability of funds held in escrow dating back to 2009 where county officials failed to complete monthly liability reports showing when the money was collected and to whom the funds were due.

“My team traced this problem back a decade,” DePasquale said. “There must be a full accounting of the millions of dollars in public funds and a change in operations moving forward. There should be a paper trail on every penny of taxpayer funds at all times.”

Monthly reports are essential in providing immediate, up-to-date information, clear accountability over revenue and helping prevent any potential misuse of funds.

ECB’s Mario Draghi says European economy may need more stimulus. Trump hits back on Twitter – CNN

London (CNN Business)Europe signaled Tuesday that it could return to printing money to boost its flagging economy, a potential reversal of policy that drew an immediate rebuke from President Donald Trump.

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said in a speech that he was open to boosting monetary stimulus if economic conditions in Europe don’t improve.
He said that the ECB stands ready to use all tools at its disposal, which could include interest rate cuts and the revival of quantitative easing, which involves creating new money to buy assets such as government bonds.
“In the absence of improvement, such that the sustained return of inflation to our aim is threatened, additional stimulus will be required,” he said in Sintra, Portugal.
