President Trump’s Lawyers Preparing To Answer Questions In Russia Probe

On Thursday, sources close to the matter said that President Donald Trump’s lawyers are preparing answers to questions for the U.S. special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said he would seek dismissal of the remaining charges as well.  Following the hearing, the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance made public a letter it had sent to Brafman last month disclosing that an unnamed witness had told them that she had heard an account of the alleged assault from Evans, and it was different from the one Evans originally gave to DA’s office. ...Read more
