John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Trial Date Set For Obama Aide Ensnared In Mueller Probe

Former White House counsel will stand trial in a Washington, D.C. federal court Aug. 12 on charges that he made false and misleading statements to the Department of Justice regarding work he performed for a foreign government.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson set the date in a Friday scheduling order. The order provides that Craig has until May 10 to file a motion to dismiss the charges. Jackson said any changes to the schedule are unlikely.

“Given this compressed schedule, which the parties have considered and requested, the court will not be inclined to grant any motions to extend the deadlines set forth above absent exigent circumstances,” Jackson’s order reads.

Craig served as the White House’s top lawyer under former President Barack Obama. After leaving the Obama administration, he joined Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to lead a global policy and litigation group.

Skadden Arps worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on behalf of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych beginning in 2012. Manafort and the firm prepared and promoted a report concerning Ukraine’s prosecution of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, one of Yanukovych’s domestic political adversaries. The Tymoshenko prosecution was widely criticized in the west as a sham.

The Justice Department says Craig misled government lawyers who inquired about the nature of the firm’s work for the Yanukovych government throughout 2012 and 2013. Special counsel Robert Mueller placed those efforts under renewed scrutiny.

The firm has since acknowledged its work for the Yanukovych government and reached a settlement with the Justice Department. It agreed to register as an agent of Ukraine under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and pay a fine of $4.6 million.

Craig has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

“I did not participate in a scheme to mislead the government or conceal material facts,” Craig said in a statement. “This prosecution is unprecedented and unjustified. I am confident that both the judge and the jury will agree with me.”

Craig has ties to other prominent Democrats. He served as special counsel in the White House during the impeachment trial of former President Bill Clinton and represented former Democratic Sen. John Edwards, who was charged and acquitted for campaign finance violations.

Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of the special counsel’s report on Thursday.
