    The Independent


    Pharmaceutical corporation Novartis said it paid $1.2m to Donald Trump’s embattled attorney Michael Cohen for a single, fruitless meeting - a transaction that has drawn the attention of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

    Pardoning Michael Cohen This Early In The Mueller Investigation Could Be Trouble For Trump
    A look back at every special counsel-related pardon since Reagan

    By Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux


    ... The president has broken with so many norms that there’s a temptation to label almost everything Trump does as unprecedented. In this case, however, the record is a little more complicated. If Trump pardoned someone caught up in the Russia probe, it actually wouldn’t be the first time that pardons were used to absolve defendants in a special counsel investigation.

    The impeachment of Donald Trump: Is it really coming? Republicans definitely think so
    Republicans’ main midterm strategy is to drive their voters out with impeachment-dread. How will Democrats respond?
    HEATHER DIGBY PARTON


    ... Last month Jonathan Martin of the New York Times reported that Trump's advisers had finally gotten through to him that the House was in serious jeopardy of falling into Democratic hands in the midterms -- and that impeachment was on the table, which would naturally galvanize him since the only thing that matters to Trump is Trump. But the strategy is really about motivating Republicans who have been showing less enthusiasm for the election throughout the first year of the administration.

    Trump's legal team thinks unlikely developments in Paul Manafort's case could flip Mueller's investigation on its head
    Sonam Sheth


    ... Manafort is the subject of two indictments from Mueller's office. One, brought in Virginia, charges him with tax and bank fraud connected to his lobbying work for the Ukrainian government and pro-Russia interests in Ukraine.

    By Jennifer Agiesta, CNN Polling Director


    WASHINGTON (CNN)Republicans have begun to sour on Robert Mueller's handling of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and they are increasingly likely to say the President should not testify under oath for the special counsel.

    ... Even though Ford declined to work with Cohen, the office of Robert Mueller, special counsel in the Russia probe, learned of Cohen's contact with Ford and asked the automaker for information and records about the offer. Mueller has interviewed Ford's head of government affairs Ziad Ojakli, reports WSJ.
