Trump, others agitated by Giuliani’s uneven response to Russia probe

By JONATHAN LEMIRE and ERIC TUCKER NEW YORK — Rudy Giuliani’s latest media blitz, which was filled with a dizzying array of misstatements and hurried clarifications, agitated President Donald Trump and some of his allies, who have raised the possibility that the outspoken presidential lawyer be at least temporarily sidelined from televised interviews.

The justices agreed to review a challenge to New York City’s restrictions on the transportation of licensed handguns, in a case that may not be heard until next term. They also denied the federal government’s request to review lower-court orders banning implementation of the Trump administration’s ban on service in the military by most transgender people, but, by a 5-4 vote, they reinstated the ban while appeals are pending...

BuzzFeed News' real problem isn't the special counsel's office

Dear Readers, It was a three-day weekend for some, but not over at BuzzFeed News. The publisher was busy defending its bombshell report on Robert Mueller’s investigation after the special counsel’s office denied the story, which claimed that President Trump directed his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. (BuzzFeed stands by its story.) The ordeal raised questions about BuzzFeed News’ credibility and showed the perils of high-stakes reporting on the Trump presidency in a 24-7 news cycle. Bu...

Redacted petition made public in grand jury dispute

Last month the unnamed corporation at the center of a dispute over a grand jury subpoena that is widely believed to be connected to the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller asked the Supreme Court for permission to file a petition for review under seal. Today the Supreme Court granted that permission and made a redacted version of the petition available to the public. However, the redacted version sheds little – if any – new light on the nature of the dispute or any possible links to ...

Rudy Has Been All Over The Map On Trump-Cohen Moscow Project Talks

Rudy “truth isn’t truth” Giuliani was at it again over the holiday weekend. In at least five interviews with the press over a two-day period, Giuliani made confusing and often contradictory statements while attempting to spin reports that President Trump and Michael Cohen were in contact about constructing a Trump Tower Moscow in the months leading up to the 2016 election. Initially, Giuliani was dispatched to crow over the special counsel’s unusual decision to discredit a BuzzFeed article re...

House Democrats turbocharge committee probes of Trump

The little-noticed change, made since the Democrats took over majority control of the House earlier this month, will let staffers of House investigative committees take testimony from subpoenaed witnesses without a lawmaker being present. By eliminating complications with lawmakers' schedules, the change will let staffers work faster and range more widely, said former staffers and sources inside the committees that are launching several inquiries into Trump and his presidency.

The Mueller Squirrel Cage

Special Counsel Robert Mueller recently indicted yet another peripheral character in his Trump probe, Russian attorney Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, for alleged money laundering in a matter quite separate from Trump. Like almost all of Mueller’s indictments of the past 20 months, the charges against Veselnitskaya had nothing to do with his original mandate of finding any possible Trump–Russia collusion. If Mueller was not a special counsel, and if he was not looking for anyone deemed useful to fli...
