The Guardian | World | Australia | Australian Politics - Live: August September 1, 2016 (04:02 BST): Senate Calls malcolm Turnbull to Establish a Banking Royal Commissio. - Politics Live   Gareth Hutchens Aprox 3.59am BST 03:59 Paul Karp’s story on the new counter-terrorism laws is up now. For a full rundown, see here. The Australian government has announced it will increase the intensity of attacks on Islamic State – also known as Daesh – by changing the law to allow targeting of its combat support forces, not just those actively engaged in hostilities. Labor offered in-principle support for the changes, which will allow strikes on logistics and support members of Isis without the legal risk of prosecution under Australian law. Updated at 4.01am BST 3.51am BST 03:51 Just to be clear, the successful motion passed in the Senate calling on the PM to establish a banking royal commission has no force.

There is little if any evidence that federal ethics laws were broken by Mrs. Clinton or anyone working for her at the State Department in their dealings with the foundation. Unfortunately, the foundation is still fuel for Mrs. Clinton’s persistent critics. T
