Trump claimed this week that the FBI may have “implanted” someone who “spied” on his campaign. It’s merely the latest bogus claim.
Trump’s previous lawyer, John Dowd, had said a president can’t.

Trump has said Kim Jong Un would have to “get rid of their nukes.” His secretary of state has given signs of offering a softer list of demands.

Giuliani’s own law firm disputes his comments about Michael Cohen’s payment being business as usual.
That doesn’t mean the scandals aren’t important. It does mean they’re more survivable.
Cohen’s newly disclosed consulting agreements provide a window into how Washington works. It’s not pretty.
