WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump pursued a business deal to erect a tower bearing his name in Moscow throughout 2016, his attorney said on Sunday, raising new questions for congressional investigators looking into possible ties between the president and Russia.
According to Christie, who many thought would become either Trump’s running mate or chief of staff, Trump avoided hiring good people who would guide him correctly and help him overcome his destructive impulses. Christie said that Trump needed people around him who were knowledgeable about how the U.S. government functions, but in most cases he didn’t get that.

The debate over making special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is rapidly heating up and may soon come to a boil.

Former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne said Giuliani's statements confirm that Trump knew that Michael Cohen to Congress which is an impeachable offense for failure to execute the laws of the United States.
Rudy Giuliani's admission that Trump was trying to make a deal with Russia for a Trump Tower Moscow is another step closer to Trump being charged with treason.
On Saturday he gave a speech outlining his plan to get a border wall and to re-open the U.S. government. But his plan was immediately rejected by Democrats, so it was a complete failure as a compromise, and it got him no more political support among either Democrats or independents.
The past week has not been easy for supporters of Donald Trump, especially those who believe he is innocent of conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
On Thursday BuzzFeed News published allegations that he instructed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower real estate project in Moscow. And even though Bob Mueller’s office has attacked the accuracy of BuzzFeed’s reporting, the news site is standing by it, saying it is accurate. And as the truth comes out after Mueller’s final report is issued, and Cohen testifies before Congress on February 7, we may find out that the BuzzFeed story was indeed true.
At midnight on Friday Trump’s disastrous shutdown entered its fifth week. Although the president himself is immune to the financial consequences, many millions of Americans are not immune, and are starting to suffer.

These are both crucial demographics for a Republican presidential victory in 2020.
