The building being renovated is the third Trinity Church to occupy the site at the head of Wall Street. The first was built in 1698 and burned in the great New York fire of 1776, which destroyed hundreds of buildings. The second was built in 1790 and torn down after support beams bucked in 1838. George Washington and members of his government worshipped at the second Trinity Church during the period when New York was the capital of the United States.
On Monday, the company of a one-time Qatari diplomat and investor said it could not confirm and had "no basis to confirm" that the company's owner, Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, was pictured in a video that appeared to show Al-Rumaihi in the lobby of the Trump Tower in Dec. 2016, accompanied by Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen. By Tuesday, a spokesperson for the company acknowledged to CNN that Al-Rumaihi had attended a meeting at Trump Tower on that date. Al-Rumaihi was at Trump Tower on December 12, 2016. He was there in his then role as head of Qatar Investments, an internal division of QIA, to accompany the Qatari delegation that was meeting with Trump transition officials on that date," the spokesperson for Sports Trinity told CNN. "He did not participate in any meetings with Michael Flynn, and his involvement in the meetings on that date was limited." Al-Rumaihi is currently at the center of a legal dispute in which a former business partner, Jeff Kwatinetz, alleges that Al-Rumaihi had tried to bribe him for access to Steve Bannon and had suggestively boasted that Michael Flynn had not refused "our money."
The Trinity wallet, previously known as the'UCL Wallet', was a project started as a Master's thesis by University College London student Charlie Varley. The intention was to develop a cross platform mobile application that would serve as an alternative IOTA wallet for the community. At the time there was only the Official Desktop wallet and a third-party Android wallet. Over the past few months, developers from the community have joined Charlie in the development of the wallet. This has allowed for a number of additional features to be included and has increased the speed of development significantly.
