Trump dump

Having just ditched his previous positions on Syria and the Export-Import Bank, President Donald Trump went for the trifecta today and reversed himself on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization too. During the campaign, you may recall, Trump famously declared the alliance "obsolete." This afternoon he shook the Etch-a-Sketch and started over: "I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."

The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of an adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, part of an investigation into possible links between Russia and the campaign, law enforcement and other U.S. officials said. The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Page’s communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.
