Gates, Buffett plan to raise $600B from mega-donors, including themselves

Gates and Buffett announced this new initiative, called the Giving
Pledge, which calls on everyone on the Forbes 400 American rich list to
pledge half their net worth -- either now or at their death. The hope
is that if everyone on the list agrees, the plan could raise US$600
billion.
...
Buffett has already written his pledge, which is published on the
Giving Pledge website --though he's going beyond the 50 per cent
target, aiming to give away 99 per cent of his $50 billion fortune.

The ubiquitous Mueller investigation into so-called and alleged Russian “collusion” in the 2016 US Presidential Campaign has some chilling effects far beyond Washington circles, perhaps all the way to main street America and the nonprofit, non-governmental agencies that serve all of society.
“Trust” Regarding the Mueller fallout, U.S. subsidiaries of foreign-owned corporations say they are most concerned that the law changes would reverse a long-standing exemption and require their lobbyists to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The 1938 law has gained new fame with the indictments of former lobbyists Rick Gates and Paul Manafort, who worked on President Donald Trump’s campaign, for allegedly failing to comply with it. The charges stem from the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.
