WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has confessed that he lied to Congress about a Moscow real estate deal he pursued on Trump's behalf during the heat of the 2016 Republican campaign. Trump insisted repeatedly throughout the campaign that he had no business dealings in Russia. But Cohen's plea arrangement makes clear that prosecutors believe he was continuing to pursue the Trump Tower Moscow project weeks after he had clinched the Republican nomination for president.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's decades-long dream of building a luxury tower in the heart of Moscow flared and fizzled several times over the years, most recently when his presidential campaign was gaining momentum. That latest plan led his former lawyer Michael Cohen to plead guilty to a charge of lying to congressional investigators about key details in the negotiations, most notably that those talks stretched far deeper into the 2016 campaign than previously thought.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — The walking dead have descended on Buenos Aires. Or at least it looked that way briefly Thursday, as a group of actors dressed as zombies trudged through a central square in the Argentinian capital. They were meant to represent victims of globalization. Chasing them were menacing hooded figures shrouded in black _ meant to be Western governments.
ISTANBUL (AP) — China's Communist Party newspaper says more than 1 million civil servants are staying in minorities' homes in China's far west for days at a time in what the government says is an attempt to alleviate poverty and promote ethnic unity. The Associated Press spoke to exiled Uighurs who described their families' having to host Han Chinese in their homes as a chilling intrusion into their personal lives.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi haven't talked in days, not since he called to congratulate her on Democrats' election night when. But they don't really need to. The two go way back, from before he was president or she was speaker. Not quite friends, nor enemies, theirs is now perhaps the most important relationship in Washington. If anything is to come of this new era of divided government it'll likely happen between two of the country's most polarizing politicians.
