President Donald Trump described George Papadopoulos — a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign who has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents — as a “low-level volunteer.” He was, however, in contact with senior members of the Trump campaign about Russia.
There have been several instances in which Trump administration and campaign officials have made public statements about issues concerning Russia that turned out not to be true.
When it comes to litigation brought to the World Trade Organization for dispute resolution, the U.S. wins the vast majority of cases it brings, and it loses most of the cases brought against it. That’s generally how other countries fare before the WTO as well.
Two House committees have said that they will investigate the Obama administration’s approval of a deal that gave Russia a financial interest in U.S. uranium production. We covered the issue during the 2016 presidential campaign. We’ll recap here what we know – and don’t know — about the 2010 deal.
President Donald Trump boasted that unemployment claims fell to their lowest level since 1973. He’s right, but it’s part of a post-recession trend that began long before he took office.

Rep. Frederica Wilson said that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly got the facts wrong when he said that Wilson took credit for getting the funding for an FBI office in Miramar, Florida. The evidence supports Wilson.
President Donald Trump has claimed that under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies have “taken advantage of this country” and “made a fortune,” which he “stopped” by ending payments for cost-sharing subsidies on the ACA marketplaces. That’s misleading, at best, for several reasons.
