Intimidation, Pressure and Humiliation: Inside Trumpâs Two-Year War on the Investigations Encircling Him
President Trumpâs efforts have exposed him to accusations of obstruction of justice as Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, finishes his work.
As federal prosecutors in Manhattan gathered evidence late last year about President Trumpâs role in silencing women with hush payments during the 2016 campaign,
Mr. Trump called Matthew G. Whitaker, his newly installed attorney general, with a question. He asked whether
Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York and a Trump ally, could be put in charge of the widening investigation, according to several American officials with direct

Pelosi and a delegation of U.S. lawmakers were in Brussels on Monday and Tuesday to reassure European partners at a time when
transatlantic relations have been deeply fractured by Trumpâs criticism of allies and his unpredictability in policymaking.
