President Trump once promised to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons. Now, on the eve of a second meeting with Kim Jong-un, the president seems willing to ease U.S. demands. “As long as there is no testing, we’re happy,” he said over the weekend. https://t.co/scCUte2MW9

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is in Vietnam at the same time that Trump and Kim Jong Un are in Vietnam for their summit. Coincidentally, Lavrov says the U.S. asked for Moscow's advice in dealing with North Korea before the summit.https://t.co/wsTAked3jb

Meanwhile back home, 10am ET…
Michael Cohen is planning on portraying President Trump in starkly negative terms when he testifies Wednesday before a House committee, and on describing what he says was Trump's use of racist language, lies about his wealth and possible criminal conduct https://t.co/by77q6y4qm

it is insanely funny that the white house tries to smear michael cohen with the phrase "convicted liar" when the lie he was convicted for telling was "donald trump did nothing wrong"

Even if Mueller disclosure is limited, the big picture remains:
Extensive misconduct by Trump and criminality by his top aides have *already* been established.
A criminal plot to swing the election to Trump has *already* been documented.

"There is no one in Trump world who served as a more perfect embodiment of Donald Trump's appetite for corruption and immorality than Michael Cohen. Cohen was an extension of Trump's id, an enabler of Trump's most primal demands…" – @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/kV2kF6aYs7

Those pushing this economic catastrophe are rich enough to shield themselves from harm, or to profit out of disaster. It is the poorest who will suffer.
Stopping No Deal from happening on March 29th is not good enough. We need to rule it out forever.https://t.co/ErYyQZHyr9

The responses to this pretty much say it all…
A number of constituents have asked how I expect to vote in the coming weeks on Brexit. I would vote for the PM’s deal, which takes us out of the EU on time. If it falls, I will vote against an extension to Article 50 and for a WTO exit on March 29th.

I was brought up by my Tory parents to believe that Britain at its heart was a country of fair play and decency. Its 21st century incarnation has been exposed through Brexit to be a shallow and craven little place – where cheats and scoundrels prosper along with their lies.

Eye-watering cuts to the RHI subsidy which Arlene Foster personally guaranteed, pledging that it would never be cut. Under her scheme claimants could make over £50k per year per boiler. Under this proposal (to be rushed through Parliament), the max is £2k. https://t.co/oK9ZZpLWej

Lost for words. DUP Cllrs refused to support a motion opposing nuclear waste disposal after a survey to identify potential sites was carried out in the ABC borough.
Newry, Mourne & Down passed a similar motion on a cross-party basis without a hitch.
