Oh, and he's a CPA.
As far as Donald Trump is concerned, "everyone" now agrees that there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russia, and that this "has been proven." By most sensible standards, that's completely bonkers.
A former FBI special agent recently said, Donald Trump "will say nary a negative word about the Russians, but will insult us every chance he gets." And yet, the president escalated the feud even more today.
A year after an adversary launched the most important attack on the United States since 9/11, Americans have a fragile president who doesn't want to respond. It's important to understand why Donald Trump is triggered by information about Russia.
For Friday night’s show, we are bringing in some heavy legal firepower to help us understand the kind of potential legal jeopardy the White House might be worried about right now after the Michael Flynn guilty plea. Are there matters of law or legal procedure that you have questions about when it comes to the special counsel and the White House? Are there things that have happened thus far in the special counsel’s investigation that seem to make sense only to people who have gone to law school, and you would like to understand them, too? Here’s your chance to join us in accessing some of the best legal minds in the country on this subject without incurring any billable hours for doing so.

Democrats are asking a question today that has some merit: If waiting for a newly elected senator to take office before passing major legislation was the right thing to do in 2010, why is it the wrong thing to do in 2017?
A member of Donald Trump's administration conceded Roy Moore's loss in Alabama “is a big black eye for the president.” Whether Trump realizes this or not, he's suddenly weaker now than he was 24 hours ago.
Doug Jones is the apparent winner the hotly contested battle to become Alabama's newest U.S. Senator. He says his campaign was about dignity and restoring common courtesy and decency. Read more: http://nbcnews.to/2C7lp2p
Caught in a lie: The Republican National Committee says they renewed their support for Roy Moore because "the entire Alabama delegation in the House and Senate" want them to help fund Moore. Senator Richard Shelby has made clear he does not support Roy Moore. So what's the real reason? http://on.msnbc.com/2ARw6WL
When did Donald Trump know that Mike Flynn lied to the FBI? The answer is hugely consequential to the criminal culpability of Donald Trump, but the White House doesn't want to give an answer. They're going to have to come up with *some* answer. It's find-outable. Have they asked him? Watch: http://on.msnbc.com/2z5sPUB
Congressional Republicans effectively had to choose which was a higher priority: funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program or tax breaks for the wealthy. The GOP's decision is not without controversy.
The Justice Department has already appointed a special counsel to investigate Donald Trump's Russia scandal. Trump's legal team, however, wants *another* special counsel -- and some congressional Republicans agree.
Three Senate Democrats, all men, suggested Donald Trump should resign over sexual misconduct allegations. He said nothing. Then a Senate Democratic woman said the same thing. Trump responded ... differently.
