Two new developments in the ongoing Mueller investigation: First, President Trump has decided to declassify various documents and text messages related to the Russia investigation, including parts of a FISA application on former adviser Carter Page.
Republicans have long urged Trump to declassify as much as possible from the investigation, but Democrats are calling the latest order an "abuse of power." The second development: After a long delay, it appears former national security adviser Michael Flynn is finally ready to be sentenced after pleading guilty to lying to investigators way back in December.
Now, an independent Yemen-based human rights group has given CNN exclusive access to a trove of documents that show fragments of US-manufactured bombs at the scenes of other incidents in the country since 2015, when the civil war began.
Gary Cohn, the former top economic adviser to President Donald Trump, confirmed a detail about the president's position on taxes that was reported in Bob Woodward's new book.
During a Reuters event in New York City on Monday, Cohn expressed regret that the Republican tax law that was passed at the end of 2017 was not simply a cut in the corporate tax rate.
Cohn said that during the debate over the plan, Trump similarly wanted to just focus the bill on the corporate side instead of also cutting taxes for individuals.
Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive, said that the administration ultimately had to include individual tax cuts because many US companies are pass-through businesses in which the owner takes the profits and the money is taxed like personal income.
Following news on Friday that Paul Manafort had struck a plea deal with prosecutors and agreed to cooperate with the Russia investigation, President Donald Trump's personal defense attorney said he wasn't worried about the president's potential legal exposure.
Jeffrey Cramer, a longtime former federal prosecutor who spent 12 years at the Justice Department, said that while Giuliani's statement could theoretically be true, it's unlikely that Mueller would agree to a cooperation deal with the former chairman of the Trump campaign if it didn't help him snag a bigger fish.
Those include Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee; his offer of "private briefings" about the campaign to a Russian oligarch; and former Trump lawyer John Dowd's reported efforts to dangle pardons for him and former national security adviser Michael Flynn last summer if they stayed mum during the investigation.
