Trump says FBI has free rein on interviews in Kavanaugh probe

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Monday he has given the FBI free rein to interview any witnesses it deems necessary for a comprehensive investigation of sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, his U.S. Supreme Court nominee. But Trump, speaking three days after he ordered an investigation lasting no more than a week, said he does not want the probe to become a “witch hunt” and he wants it completed quickly. The FBI will be guided by what Senate Republicans want examined, added Trump, who ordered the investigation after Senate Republican leaders were pressed by Senator Jeff Flake and other moderates in Trump’s own party.…

General Electric replaces CEO with outsider, shares soar

(Reuters) - General Electric Co (GE.N) ousted Chief Executive Officer John Flannery in a surprise move on Monday, replacing him with outsider and board member Larry Culp, and said it would take a roughly $23-billion charge to write off goodwill in its power division, primarily from a large 2015 acquisition. The struggling energy, health and transportation conglomerate also said it would fall short of its forecast for free cash flow and earnings per share for 2018 due to weakness in its power business, something analysts had expected. GE shares jumped 8.1 percent to $12.20 as investors bet Culp could re-energize the GE brand and more quickly transform…

Cash, cuts and confusion; Trade deal spurs Canadian dairy fears

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/MONTREAL (Reuters) - Canada’s dairy concessions to the United States helped secure a hard-won trade deal, but they spurred talk on Monday of compensation, confusion and curtailed milk production, as a protectionist system faces new threats. U.S. and Canadian negotiators on Sunday reached a tentative trade deal, following an earlier deal between the United States and Mexico, that preserves a trilateral pact between the three North American countries, newly named the United-States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Under the terms covering the dairy sector, Canada surrendered tariff-free access representing about 3.5 percent of the domestic dairy market and agreed to dismantle a pricing system called Class 7 and to…
