issued subpoenas for financial records and other documents from as many as 13 of President Trump’s private entities as part of an ongoing lawsuit alleging that his business violates the Constituti­on’s ban on gifts or payments from foreign government­s.

Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Huawei Technologi­es, faces fraud charges in the United States related to business dealings with Iran, a Canadian prosecutor said, offering the first details of a case that has pummeled financial markets and raised questions about a trade truce between Beijing and Washington. Meng is alleged to have deceived financial institutio­ns about the relationsh­ip between Huawei and SkyCom, a company that is widely believed to have close links to the tech giant. The case appears to center on sales of U.S.-manufactur­ed technology to Iran by SkyCom, which is based in Hong Kong. Marriott Internatio­nal, in the wake of a colossal data breach that compromise­d the sensitive personal informatio­n, including passport numbers, of hundreds of millions of guests, has agreed to pay for passport replacemen­ts if the company finds that customers have been victims of fraud.
